I think I wrote a review for this a while back when I first got the bra, but it got erased before I submit and I think out of frustration I gave up and didn’t re-write it lol.
This bra style comes in two different cuts: one that is a lower, average cut and one that is a full-coverage cut. This review is for the “regular” version, not the full-coverage. I also have 2 other reviews of this bra in this size that ARE the full-coverage version.
I was told that the Kris Line Betty bra was Kris Line’s replacement for the Brilliant bra that was part of ... their permanent line but has since been discontinued. Compared to Brilliant, I much prefer Betty in these larger sizes. While the Brilliant fit me strangely (weird silhouette, oddly shaped, no support), the Betty gives the opposite effect.
This cut of the Betty obviously doesn’t has as much coverage, as seen by my photos. The bottom of the cups along the band have embroidery/embellishments, which for me is a negative because it cuts in and gets super uncomfortable throughout the day. The cups themselves are nice and deep and gives a great rounded shape. I would say it gives a look similar to that of the Kris Line Fortuna bra, including the coverage.
The straps are nice a thick and give great support. Easy to adjust, slightly wide but manageable.
Anyway, this is another great bra by Kris Line, and I’m surprised that I’m just now reviewing it, but like I said, the first time I reviewed it it got scrapped on accident. 😅

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.

I’ve already reviewed the Betty (75KK - Kris Line » Betty Soft (1404)).
Love this bra, super comfortable, love the coverage, love the neckline. Band is nice and snug. I’m not a huge fan of white, but with this bra I don’t mind so much. It’s very pretty! It fits me very well, the only minor fit complaint is (fortunately and unfortunately) that I’ve lost some weight, so this bra is a teeny bit big. I’m going to hold on to it though because I’ll still be able to wear it for a little while longer at least. Who knows, it could even slightly shrink after being washed.
