I ordered this one from LaBella Intimates, which is based in Florida and owned by a wonderful Latvian* woman named Santa! She’s been very flexible and understanding when I’ve returned bras that didn’t fit right, which eventually landed me on this one. Her prices are a little higher than other UK or Polish sellers, but honestly I didn’t mind at all. Her customer service is A+++ so that made it worth it.
The bra fits great! I almost feel like it fits even better than my other 75K - Kris Line » Fortuna Biustonosz Soft (6414) because the band stretches more and the cups seem a ... little roomier (even though black is notorious for being snugger/smaller!)
It’s the same great quality and appearance of my other Fortuna bra except in black, which I tend to prefer. Only complaint on quality is that this one was recently manufactured and it had a lot of strings and fuzzies still sticking out on it when it came. The fuzzies were easy to remove and I’ll have to carefully clip the loose strings later on.
Seems comfortable at first (short) wear, but will need some slight adjustments. I’m sure the side boning will end up bothering me so I have a feeling those will be removed to add more comfort. The wires don’t bother me and neither does the gore.
As for the overall fit on me, the cups are nice and deep and I fill them nicely. My left boob quads a bit, so I will probably end up removing the elastic along the top so the cups are less closed like I did on my beige Fortuna. The gore does not completely tack; it’s maybe a pinky away. I’m hopeful that if I remove the elastic, it’ll give a tiny bit more space in the cups and the gore might actually tack. (It seemed to work for my beige one.)
I’m happy with this bra and excited to be adding it into my rotation! I’m a total Polish bra convert and looooving it.
UPDATE 1: Side boning was removed. Ended up not needing to remove the elastic on top of the cups because it’s a thinner elastic than the beige Fortuna had (the elastic on this one is similar or the same as my Scheherazade bra). Gore tacks better once things settle. Great bra! My only complaint now is that it creaks like crazy. 🥴 Hopefully it’ll stop once the bra gets washed and worn a bit more.
UPDATE 2: (3/23/21) The band is now 76cm resting and 89.5cm stretched. Kris Line bands seem to stretch a lot over time, but that’s the benefit of having 4 sets of hooks, I guess!
