I am so shocked at how obsessed I am with this bra!
This beauty is the Kris Line Betty Full Cup Soft. Honestly, over the past few months I’ve seen Betty and not tried her because I think the embroidery is somewhat ugly, but since it’s become part of Kris Line main line, I figured I’d have to try it eventually now that Brilliant and possibly Fortuna are discontinued. (Note: I’ve been told for certain that Brilliant is discontinued as their main line, but not that Fortuna has been; however, I’m finding it very difficult to find any more Fortunas in my size and they don’t seem to be ... getting restocked.)
The full cup version of Betty does have some key differences compared to the “regular” version, and they’re somewhat important, especially for curvy girls like myself:
-Obviously the cups are taller to give fuller coverage.
-Comes as a 4-part cup with 2 vertical seams.
-Has side support to bring the ladies front and center instead of having them linger in your armpits.
-The gore is higher for more containment on the inside of the cups.
-And, my favorite part…NO EMBROIDERY ON THE BAND.
This bra has some great compression and gives a lovely rounded shape. The wires are the perfect width for me, but with my experience with Kris Line that’s typically the case for me. Their wires always fit me pretty well. The cups are lined with mesh and are very comfortable. They have elastic along the top, but because the bra is slightly large, it doesn’t cause me to quad. (Note: I’ve read that Betty runs larger in the cups that most other Kris Line bras, which is probably why this is slightly loose on top for me.) The gore is a little wide, definitely wider than Ewa Michalak, but it actually works for me. It barely tacks flat for me, but I think it’s a combination of it being wide and taller. It isn’t an issue for me, though, because most (if not all) Kris Line bras don’t tack hard for me. The band is snug but very comfortable, and I love that there isn’t embroidery on the band at the gore/under the cups because I always have discomfort there on bras. The straps are wide, comfortable, and perfect in terms of adjustment. Overall, this is honestly the best bra I’ve ever worn!
I definitely recommend giving it a try if you know you Kris Line size because even though it’s not the most beautiful bra, it really is the bee’s knees.
