Obviously this is too big for me, too tall probably too and the band is very big/stretchy on this bra. The size of this bra is at least 1-2 cup size bigger than my Kris Line Mirabella in 75K. They are 2 very different bras. Which is a shame, that there is such a big difference within the same brand.
But it's very comfortable! It's very soft all around, the wires seem on the softer side. Even though it's mesh fabric it's very soft. I love the wide straps, and the short, very narrow gore. I don't care too much for the look of this bra, I try to ...avoid these boring looking bras but it was all they had. And for what it's worth, I bought this on Brastop and I can now confirm that if it's listed as 34K on their site, it means you'll get a 34K in Kris Line sizing! Not in UK sizing.
I don't get as much lift in this one as my other Kris Line, but I think it's because this one is too big. I'm not sure a 75JJ would be enough tbh. Maybe even a 75J could work in this, or it's just not the best for my shape and stuff. I suppose I could exchange it for a 32JJ but I'm okay with the comfortable fit of this so I'll just keep this. At least it's not crazy big https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 136 more words
This is the first of a few Polish bras I bought on reddit. My first try with Kris Line. The sizing of KL is kinda difficult to figure out. They don't follow EU sizing like other Polish brands (Ava, Gorsenia, Comexim...) where my size of 32J/JJ usually translates to 70M/N. Also they don't follow UK sizing as they don't go up in inch per cup size but in 2cm steps. So buying this bra was kind of a shot in the dark. Since it was very afforable I took the risk and just hoped for the best.
The bra looks really nice, materials feel good on the skin, the ...straps are a dream of every big chested girl as they are super wide and comfy! The wires don't look very narrow to me, more average, the cups are deep and roomy. The cups are made of 2 layers of thin non stretchy embroidered mesh. The material is very light weight. The band is made of thick elastic fabric. The is some side boning which kinda annyoys me, it's very weak but it still stabs a bit.
My shape: tall, narrow to average wide roots, full on top, projected, center heavy
This size 75KK is actually too big for me. By the look of it and measurements I would say it equals to UK 34JJ-K. The band is stretchy and too large for me even if I close it on the tightest setting. (But also too big cups make a band feel larger!) The cups are too tall (!) for me and too large on top. I fill out the bottom just fine and there is no wrinkling. So the bra has good projection from the wire and would work very well for fob shapes. The straps are 3cm wide and feel fantastic, I just wish they werent so wide set.
I cannot say if the bra is supportive in large sizes, as this bra doesn't do much for me my but maybe it's because it is too big? The top part of the cups I cannot fill. I assume it's about 2 cup sizes too big? So this would mean my KL size would be 75JJ or 70K? I don't think it's a bad bra and if I get the change I'd love to try 70K and see if the fit issues go away in a smaller size. Read more 288 more words
I already own this in 75K in black, but some days it's a little small so I figured I'd get it in 75KK because I made an order directly from Kris Line, and it was on sale for ~16 pounds! Bargain.
I really love my black version of this, it's super comfortable. Putting this one on, it's crazy how stretched out the band is on my other one lmao. I could fasten this one and it's perfectly snug. That's what I love most about KL bras, the band sizes are really true to size I feel. They're never too small or too big like other brands usually are.
The fit ...I honestly don't really notice a difference in the cup between the K and KK. I always had empty space in the top of the cup becaue this bra has a bit of an odd shape, but it doesn't show or affect the fit on me overall, so I ignore the wrinkling. The rest of the cup fits basically the same as my K cup one.
The looks of this one in white is beautiful. It's super bridal. I usually don't go for white because I fake tan but for the price and since I knew it would fit me I'm not gonna complain. And if I feel like a bride in it, I don't see how that's a bad thing anyway haha. Sometimes white/beige bras can feel very maternal/grandma but this one is definitely not that so that's awesome https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" /> Read more 147 more words
The Brilliant is one of Kris Line’s (now discontinued) bras that are part of their normal line (excuse me for not being able to find the word for it...but it’s one of their “staples,” where other bras are “seasonal,” if that makes sense). It’s characterized with immediate projection at the wire, wider wires than what are regular for Polish brands, and the beautiful floral embroidery on the top of the cups. It’s made fo 2 layers of mesh fabric along with the embroidered mesh on top.
I normally wear 34HH in UK sizes, so ordered a 70K because I know from experience that the ...band is super stretchy in this model. This still rang true in a 70 band. I would have tried a 75JJ had I been able to, but with it being discontinued the seller was unable to get me that size. Either way, it doesn’t matter because it isn’t the right size. I went smaller because from reading reviews on here, I found a lot of reviewers said the Brilliant ran larger. Comfort-wise, it’s a pretty comfortable bra. The mesh is a tad itchy, but otherwise that’s my only complaint in respect to the comfort. The 70 band is snug, but not tight. Had I ordered a 75K, it may have been closer to fitting, maybe, but I’m just so...confused.
Comparing the measurements to my 75K - Kris Line » Scheherazade Soft (L1105), the wires are wider and the cups are taller and deeper. Because the Scheherazade gore floats slightly, I figured deeper cups = a gore that could tack. Apparently I was wrong. Or the Brilliant just doesn’t work for my shape.
I’m debating if I should try this in another size or give up on it all together. I know I’ve seen things said about Kris Line being inconsistent, and this could very well be true. I really, really like my Scheherazade, but I’m scared to try anything else because I won’t know if it will fit the same! Read more 233 more words
YAY, narrow wires. Never have I experienced such perfection with a bra that has such depth in the cups. They sit exactly where they should!
The cups could be a liiiiittle bit deeper (yeah, I need extremely deep cups). At least my boobs aren't getting squashed too much. The difference between my different sized breasts is less noticeable than usual, though being over even slightly will result in quadboob with my right breast.
The centre gore tends to shift around during wear, but it's never too far from my sternum. The only brand I've tried in which the centre gore consistently lies flat on me is Panache, and their wires are too wide for me.
The shape is rather pointy, but in a nice, uplifted way.
Sadly, it's too big in the band (and apparently this model doesn't come in a 70K). Otherwise, near perfect (and quite sexy, really). Must try more Polish bras.
Krisline bras seem to be rather pricey, but the feel and quality of the materials is excellent.
I love the look of the black Brilliant in other sizes, but for some reason this larger size looks...weird. And not super sexy like the other ones I’ve tried (80HH was cute!)
This ends up full coverage looking, and it’s not super flattering imho ON ME.
The overall fit is fine, it checks all the boxes, but it just seems large. I know alisa and alidieux have both tried Brilliant in this size or similar sizes and weren’t too thrilled with it either. The cups are very tall, and I do have some space at the top, ...but it isn’t super noticeable. The gore softly tacks, but it’s higher than most gores I wear so that’s probably why. The band is a good length, it has a little give to it but not much. The cups themselves are pretty narrow! Almost too narrow, but they still fit.
This bra also feels like it isn’t supportive enough! I feel like it looks like a pair of tube socks with baseballs in them. It just looks so saggy! I feel like I almost have the straps ratcheted all the way and my boobs are still not supported.
The material is fine, typical Kris Line double mesh. It’s comfortable, but just weird.
I’ll probably keep it just because I don’t want to deal with shipping it back to Poland, but idk. I wanted it so badly and I wanted it to fit and it does but it’s just...weird. Read more 148 more words
(This bra doesn't fit, it was too big and probably the wrong shape. I did have some spilling at the top of the bigger breast, but there was also some amount of empty space at the [is it the apex?], which is more noticeable on the smaller one. Just adding in the measurements) --EDIT-- So looking back at the bra, the empty space here was more were the lower half of the bra joined the mesh portion, I think it has more to do with the stitching than true empty space. It could also be that I've grown since first trying on this bra --END EDIT--
In ...measuring cup depth & cup height, both the minimum and maximum cup depth was measured. To measure the minimum cup depth the bra was hovered between the knees at the tape measure left to hang. The recorded measurement was 14.25 inches. To record the maximum cup depth the cup was stretched over the knee, to the maximum resistance. The recorded measurement was 15 inches.
I had entered in the maximum recorded measurements in the table.
The same was done for the cup height, in which the minimum measurement was 9.75 and the maximum recorded was 10.5 (probably just a little less than that but I wasn't sure how to write the decimal for that)
One other thing to note (I'm somewhere at a 29 inch back). I did find the band to be very stretchy and would've liked it to be a little firmer. Read more 141 more words
This bra has a very weird fit, I can't even tell which breast shape it might fit. The 65 band feels like Cleo or Freya's 32. The elastics are very soft and at this size, the bra has 3 sets of hooks. The gore does not stay flat on my sternum, and the fabric on either sides of the gore wrinkes. It might lack center projection. The cups don't fit, the left one is very big, but hte right is a tad small. I know I have asymetric breast, but it's the first time that I see such a big difference in the fit of each cup. The straps are comfortable but wide-set, which may bother women with narrow shoulders.
Still not quite right. Straps are too wide, I think I need a 28 band but I don't believe they come that small, and the cups fit on the bottom but are a tiny bit big on top. Then you look to the side and oh boy, I don't even know what's going on. It like they're just floating, it's just not a look I'm going for. I got it on eBay so I don't plan on trying to send it back. I thought I was on the right track with Kris line but maybe just not this one.
