This bra definitely lifts and projects short roots. Certain Polish brands are good at that it seems. I am not so sure about the projection as it can be on the pointed rather than round side. I bought this bra on a whim and it fits better after losing a bit of weight. My fitter at the time convinced me as she said it lifts and pushes your breasts forward and has the effect of slimming you. One of my first fitting bras bought from a bra boutique and the price was on the high side compared to online. I was not sure of my size at the time so the help with fitting was worth it. I would buy more of this brand if the shape was a bit rounder.
This bra was terrible on me. I am short rooted, projected, pendulous and center heavy. This bra may have been a cup size too big as I was extremely pointy in it, and maybe compression would have given me a more rounded shape. Will give a final say on the cup size relative to other Kris lines as I get them and will revise this review. I went off of their measurements with a 115cm bust and I find an 80cm band comfy.
Gore didn't even come close to tacking.It is a very tall bra with the apex high in the cup. The non stretch lace sorta curves ...in at the top and lays floopy on my breast. Would be closed off top for taller roots. I found the bottom of the cup shallow, and there was not enough center depth for me.
There are 4 columns of 3 hooks on the bra and the bra itself is lovely. Straps are a bit short however, so if you routinely pull your straps out, these will probably be too short. Keepers and rings are metal.
Band felt a touch tight but would probably loosen up with wear to TTS 36/80.
Fabric is soft and luxurious, and I wish it worked for me. Definitely the wrong shape and not a good bra for me. Read more 116 more words
Very unexpected deviation from labeled size! Band is extremely small and firm, and cups are very much larger than I expected--both deeper and taller, though the wires are narrow. I am usually a 32FFuk and 32G French/Euro. In overall cup volume and size, this feels more like a UK 28H or 30GG.
I did attempt to put it on. I can just about fasten it, but with a band barely over 29" fully stretched, I cannot wear this comfortably--it's too tight even with a 3" extender. Also, the cups are clearly too large, the lacy upper half sitting basically empty.
It seems well-made and sturdy otherwise. The materials are robust (padding is firm, wires are thick and do not bend easily). Elastics are wide, thick and seem like they would not become distended with wear. Straps do have some stretch to them. Lace at top of cups is NOT stretch lace.
Cups are at least two sizes too small. Wires are pretty firm The band itself feelstl tight BECAUSE of the other fit issues. I think once I get my correct KL size down, this brand has alot of potential for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
Diamond 65K Diamond is a semi soft bra with foam lined bottom and added removable cookies within a cookie pocket. The top of the cups are very stretchy. It’s like if the Ewa Michalak BM and PL style bras had a baby, this bra would be it. It is very comfortable and quite supportive feeling, so in that aspect it has an S style flair.
The band measures 25” to a max of 32” with the 3 hooks and 4 rows of eyes, yet still feels secure and supportive.
Cup depth is 13” as measured by hovering the cup between the knees and placing the tape measure into the ...cup without any resistance, to a max of 15” stretched over the knee. The cup width is 6” with a height of 9”. The gore is 3.5” tall with a wing of 4.5”.
For Kris Line bras, I recommend Bras4you.com. Magda (our very own @MagdaBras4You) offers a wide selection and excellent customer service. If she doesn’t have what you’re looking for, and she can get it, she will. I have gotten most of the Kris Line bras I’ve tried from her as well as a variety of other Polish brands, and I have never been disappointed in her service.
1/20/19 Update-I had put this one away into storage for over a year now, but I am currently considering buying KrisLine again, so I pulled out the only two KL bras I still have to test the sizing and figure out which size would be best. This one is comfortable, even the band feels fine and comfortable on the tightest hook set, but the cups are now quadding, so I will need to size up in the cup, or go with the 60L which still fits nicely.

Kris Line has this amazing soft luxurious touch, and the Diamond does not disappoint in material quality at all. Also, my most comfortable bra ATM. Half padded, band stretchy, true to size or maybe a bit looser, while cups run big I'd say - wires ever so soft and comfortable, the upper part of the cups is soft stretchy lace. Comes with cookies and cotton inner lining The gore floats a little and I fall out a little in the centre, even though the cups seem to be the right size.The half padded structure lifts, but I feel it should go higher, as the soft lace cannot hold ...firm enough. I am getting a ski slope look, so for now it is my wear-at-home bra. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Edit: After wearing it for a while, I realize that the band is very stretchy. My guess is that this bra would pass as a 32DD. When I tighten the band, the cups also stretch and the fit improves - possibly a 60E would be my size in this one. I am becoming pretty sure that this one would look better on someone with a little wider breasts with more upper fullness, even to FOT. The lace at the top is very soft and flexible, allowing more upper fullness and/or taller roots. A shape mismatch for me I think. Oh, but it is so soft and silky... Update: Now, with a little weight gain, this bra fits much better than before, but still not perfect. Read more 147 more words
This bra seems to run big in the cups- it fits me if I leave the padding in, but I'm usually more 30E. The band is a bit loose, but I bought it used. I love that there are 4 columns of hooks (in 2 rows), all my other bras only have 3 columns.
The shape it gives is interesting, and I think I like it on me .. though I see how it is a bit too sloped on others. I wish the seams were more minimal and showed through my t-shirts less.
This bra is so pretty, but it's a shame that it has the least stretchy band I've ever encountered. I can only stretch this to about 28.5"--almost 2 band sizes smaller than it should be. I can barely fasten it with an extender, so it's hard to tell fit. Like most KL semi softs I've experienced, there's a ridge at the seam between the padded and unpadded parts that I'm sure would show through clothing. It's also pretty closed on top and there's an elastic sewn at the top of the upper section, and it's very projected at the apex. The fabric is shiny and the lace is beautiful, the center gore is narrow with a lovely detail on it--it's just a shame that it essentially runs 2 band sizes small because the elastic in it barely stretches.
Seems like this is the closest I will get to a KL bra fitting. Band fits much more like a 30. Still the top part is empty, there's a significant ridge where the padding ends, and the shape is so pointy... I just couldn't picture myself wearing this in real life. It's a very pretty bra and very high quality, but I would feel self conscious with these torpedo boobs.
I guessed wrong on a Zulily sale, or this bra is mis-marked, or Kris Line has serious consistency issues. I think the cup would be perfect but the band would be too tight even with an extender. Maybe an 80/85 GG/H? Colorway would be nice for fair to medium skin tones. Materials and construction are lovely. Cups are very deep at the center so I think they would be best for fuller on top boobs. Band has 4 columns of 3 hooks.
