  1. Afrodyta Half Cup Soft

    Fits

    I wear Krisline softcups (balcony) bras all the time. I love their GORGEOUS embroideries. In fact, I buy Krisline bras and panties BECAUSE of their embroideries.

    When looking through bra catalogues, I have always been drawn to sheer half cups. I always wanted to wear this style of bra and swore that after I had my breasts fixed I would wear unpadded, sheer half cup bras.

    But, most reviews will state that bras of this style are wider and more shallow/less projected than softcup balconies, so I was hesitant to try them, for fear of losing money.

    Up until now, the only soft half cup/balconette that I had tried was ... my Ewa Michalak HM Wiktori. I gambled on that one because I had seen other BTB users with breasts similar to mine have success with it.

    HM Sekret Wiktori is projected enough at the wire. It fits pretty well and while I love that bra, it is too open on the top to be anything but a date night bra(my nipples fall up and out of it over time) so my quest for a soft half cup that I could wear all the time was still on.


    On my last order from MagdaBras4you in Poland, I decided that this time I would be brave. VERY brave. I ordered new styles AND new brands.

    And the bra that I am most happy that I took a risk on? This one!!

    This bra was a real fit surprise. Why? Because it is a perfect fit. PERFECT.

    The wires are narrow. In my size, at 13cm wide, the cup measures almost 2cm less across than my Ewa HM.

    The cups are projected and deep (even at the gore).

    The cups come up over my nipple and the little elastic at the top closes the cup but does not dig in or cause any quadding. The girls stay inside all day.

    This is a sexy bra that gives the uplifted apple effect but has enough comfort, support and security to wear all day every day.

    Afrodyta is a soft half cup balconette with 2 vertical seams and a side support. It is unlined and sheer.

    There is boning in the wings, but it is soft and flexible - no poking.

    Straps are perfect width for my frame. A little closer set than my HM.

    It has an inverted V-shaped gore, which I love because I am short waisted.

    Band is TTS for KL - i.e. It is size 65 and it measures 65cm un-stretched.

    Cradle, gore and band are all constructed of double-layer mesh. Light, airy and delicate but strong.

    I chose brazilian (stringo-szorty) panties to match. They are constructed of opaque sueded microfibre on the front with embroidered sheer mesh panels at the hip to match the cups of the bra. The back is made of double-layer stretch mesh (like the band of the bra) that is seamed up the middle and folded on the sides to reduce panty lines.

    They are TTS for KL panties in size S - i.e. they fit like an XS.

    KL panties are ALL notoriously small. Seriously. Size up ladies.

    But, they are some of the best panties ever in terms of quality of fabric and construction. Well worth the money and much better than EM panties. MUCH better.

    I am so happy with this set that I have already asked Magda to order another soft half cup from the Krisline Spring/Summer catalogue as well as 3 more from their Fall/Winter catalogue. I have finally found the bra of my dreams and it only costs about $50.

    Didn't fit

    My Kris Line bra showed up! Woohoo!

    I love the details. I love the little rose added to the gore. I think it's very aesthetically pleasing. (:

    Now on to the fit itself. I think the cups are too wide for my root, which is why I feel like there's just something... Off about the bra. I don't really understand why the straps sit so far off my back and almost into my armpits. Maybe that's why I don't feel as supported? It's weird.
    Theres wrinkling on my smaller side at the top of the cup, but slight digging on my larger side, but it's hard to photograph. I think this ... is the correct size for me, but I'm unhappy with the fit itself. The boning they added to the wings are also uncomfortable. They dig right into my ribs, but I don't think this is because the band is too tight, it's just the placement.
    I feel if I were to wear this bra for more than five minutes, the straps would fall off as they are also too wide.
    It's just an okay from me /:

      Very beautiful raspberry color. Sorry the fit is off. :-/

      I wonder if a different style would yield better results for you.

    • 1

      I really love the color haha, but the fit leaves more to be desired :/

      I'm not sure what other styles they sell in my size. I'd have to take another look at their catalogs.

    • I'm sorry it doesn't fit. It's lovely otherwise. Those straps look too wide set for you frame (why am I not surprised). The wire doesn't look like it fills the channel.

    • Ah, super soft tissue will act like that with the upper lace like the one on this bra (the weird, can't-quite-describe-it-wrinkling/cutting in). I've had that happen too.
      I do love the gore on this, it's reaaaally narrow! Wonderful

    • 1

      A really pretty bra, too bad about the fit :/ Wire and strap position do remind me of UK brands fit of wires and straps on me. Some bras I tried I would need much broader shoulders for it to fit properly. It also looks like there is not much uplift, cups look like they are just there covering boobs?

    • Me too. It's so pretty in real life :/
      They're ridiculous! I don't understand it haha. Could that be why the straps on my back are so far out too? Or is that just a design flaw? Hm.
      Right :/

    • brasaremean Dang my soft tissue haha. It's strange to me how it does it more noticeably on my smaller, firmer side. Odd haha.
      Yes! Very surprised with the narrow gore. It impressed me as well :)

    • alisa I felt the same.. it's like a Polish/UK hybrid haha. And yes! It does look like they're just hanging out without being lifted, doesn't it? I thought it was just me. Thanks for pointing it out because I thought I was going nuts.

    • 1

      The bigger the cups, the further out they put the straps because they are lazy. Did I show you this photo? This is where the straps need to be on my body (Comexim) vs Ewa's straps. https://imgur.com/qmuAQXq

    • Sovavosi oh my lawd, that's terrible. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    • 1

      I think that the bra is made for a wider ribcage and the strap position for broarder shoulders? But it does not make sense since the underbust size 65 it should be scaled for small ribcage. Like with my CK Victory I had, it remind me of that, http://bra.pe/Imdw/ I should have much wider shoulders for this bra.

      Also I don't understand the back view of this KL bra, I never saw straps so wide - set on the back of a bra. Looks like they would fall off a lot.

    • alisa That's the problem with most bra brands.. way too wideset of straps in the smaller bandsize range :/

      Exactly. I've never had such wideset back straps this bad before :/

    • 2

      Too bad! The color and fabric look really nice. Sometimes i think there are bras that get made that have never been tried on to a human with those measurements to see if they work...

    • 1

      Really they don't veggiechic. I think most brands don't bother trying to test every single bra size they offer, as it would be too time consuming and expensive in their minds. They just use assumptions about what the next cup up would need and go from there. Look at @Nazeli (shutter) and their scaling. The lower cup ranges ran small but by the P and R cups, they were 2-3 cups too big if not more.
      It is so frustrating!

    • 1

      veggiechic yes. It's really too bad. I had such high hopes haha. Rats!

      Exactly what Mamapagan said. They really don't test all their sizes. I know it seems impractical to a fault, but getting one person within a general size range/sister size could do worlds of good :/

    • 2

      I'm glad you received a bra. I hoped it would be good for you. What a pity...:(

    • 3

      I feel the KL style L1100 and L1101 have a lot of potential if only they would release them. From the description it wouldn't have as tall of cups in the larger cup sizes, but without wires yet still formed channels is very intriguing to me......

  3. Power Of Pink

    **So, I've got a huge update for everyone. Turns out this is too big for me by about 2 cups, possibly three! I discovered this while at work today when the bottom of that elastic band kept rolling up under the wires and then sticking between my ribs. 10/10 would NOT recommend doing this to yourself ever.
    This rolling caused my cups to collapse and get pinched under the wires as well, all while my band stayed in my IMF zone. Very, very painful. I've never worn or owned a sports bra that was wired OR padded, so I misunderstood how to gauge the fit. I stand by ... the quality and materials and such, so I'm definitely going to give this a try in a smaller size, possibly the 65KK.**




    Kris Line's new athletic line popped up on Zulily a couple of weeks ago, and I figured "What the heck?" and took the plunge. After reading reviews about how small the cup ran via Brastop, I opted to try the 65M, a cup size up from what MagdaBras4you and I were guesstimating I would wear in their soft cup size. I am not disappointed.

    I was super nervous when I took it out of the box, guys. Seriously. I haven't had a properly fitting sports bra probably ever, and my heart was pounding! I got even more nervous because it felt pretty heavy? It was weird. The material was so soft though. It looked HUGE too!

    It took me a little bit of time to measure it and such, and then on it went! I'll be honest, there might have been some tears. Never have I ever felt secure in a sports bra before that moment. The shape was pretty fantastic, not that I would have been terribly bothered either way. The support and lift this bra provides is pretty astounding. The straps are thick, which I think will help with them not digging in as I workout. The jump test passed with flying colors. While there was some jiggle, my tissue stayed quite secure. I'm sure I was smiling like an idiot the entire time I attempted this feat.

    I do have some qualms with the bra, no matter how much I'm raving about it:

    -The straps are difficult to adjust. I don't know if this was a sewing issue or whatnot, but mine look like they're almost twisted under the adjuster. I tried to adjust the fabric so it laid flat, but I think the width of the material is too wide for the adjuster. Not sure, will update if I manage to fix it.

    -Because the straps are difficult to adjust, the J-Hook is kind of sitting awkward on me. I'm not sure if I like where it is placed. It might make some exercises difficult because the hook might dig. Think sit-ups/crunches.

    -When the j-hook is connected, the armpit curve sits quite high. I anticipate rubbing. I'm hoping since the material is soft, it's not going to be awful.

    Overall, while I haven't actually done a full workout or anything in it, I anticipate good results. I'm hoping it's going to be as fantastic as I'm imagining in my head. Haha.

    I want to put a sidenote: while I have the gore measured at 5", that's actually where the underwires end. There's a mesh material that's sewn to the tops of the cups that I believe is intended to help with airflow, if you catch my drift haha. This mesh part goes up another 3", so the gore is actually 8" total.

    Ooh, also, I'm wearing this bra on the third hookset.

      Woohoo honey! I am so happy for you. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š Now I am second guessing my plan for ordering the 65KK from MagdaBras4you when it comes available.....but 65M sounds too big too/for me.... ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Eek!

    • 1

      MamaPagan Magda was guessing my size at a 65L. Since we're essentially the same size and since the cups seem to run small, I don't think you're going to have an issue with the 65M, but if you're worried about it, maybe opt for the 65L instead. I think based on other people's reviews that the 65KK will be too small for you :O

    • 1

      Also thanks ๐Ÿ˜

    • 1

      Based on the depth measurements of this one, maybe. I might go with two then- 65LL and 65M to play it safe and compare. Maybe there will be less bounce with a 65LL. (It still sounds crazy huge though!)

    • 2

      That looks great, and I love the name! I need one of these!

    • Make sure you size up Sovavosi. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    • 1

      MamaPagan Just try and remember that Kris Line has weird sizing. An M cup is more equivalent to Ewa's KK cup I believe? I hope I'm converting that correctly in my head buahaha

    • Sovavosi Thanks; yes you do! It's fab!

    • Ah I was wondering if these are wired. Might be worth a shot then!

    • 1

      Size up? I was going to get the 65J or 65JJ, based on the measurement chart.

    • DerangedDragons19 possibly in theory, but the 60L Betty fits like the 60KK Ewa so.......inconsistencies or variations due to Sports Bra?

    • brasaremean Yep! It's underwired :)

    • 1

      Sovavosi I did at least. Brastop had reviews saying the cup ran anywhere from 1-3 cups small :o

    • 1

      MamaPagan Maybe both? I really think the M would work for you :)

    • 2

      Small because it's small at the apex or short? It doesn't look that short.

    • 2

      Sovavosi, sorry but I can't answer that with confidence. Reviews literally just said cups ran small

    • 2

    • 1

      How weird. I don't know if that would apply to me though!

    • 2

      Sovavosi Very! It's tough to say. I feel like I got pretty lucky though haha. ๐Ÿคท

    • 2

      Sovavosi based on the similarity in size between DerangedDragons19 and knowing you are typically a cup to 2 cups down from me depending on style, I wouldn't think you would want smaller than a 65L honestly. Definitely not below a 65KK based on our lovely friend"s fit here. Compression pain reasons alone. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    • 2

      That seems so big ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

    • 2

      I think MamaPagan is right, Sovavosi. I'd say maybe TRY the 65KK if you're worried about the "big" factor and then take it from there ๐Ÿคท

    • 2

      DerangedDragons19 just pointed out to me that KL doesn't do a LL cup, haha so the M doesn't sound quite as crazy. ๐Ÿ˜„ Where did I see the LL?!? Ewa confusion I guess!

    • 2

      MamaPagan It's tough to keep all the lettering and sizing correct for each brand :p

    • Indeed!

    • 2

      Oh my gosh!!! I'm so happy for you!! It's so great that this fits..hmm I was thinking of trying a 65KK but I guess i'll have to size up now

    • 1

      Hey thanks!

      Absolutely size up Frazzleberry
      I seriously believe you're at least a cup size bigger than me. I'd try the 65N if I were you. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ If you play it safe, the 65M might fit, but I fear you might have quadding

    • 1

      I second that 65N Frazzleberry. Size up!!

    • 2

      Haha, MamaPagan & DerangedDragons19 I don't think I'm that brave to size up to an N, it sounds big. Lol.

      Technically my perimeter measurements are smaller than you both (even though measurements capture the bigger picture sometimes). I've also been having a rotten luck with cup depth measurements for the bras I've recently measured..so who knows really ๐Ÿ˜…

      I'll probably have to try a few more duds before I decide to take the plunge

    • 3

      Frazzleberry oh love :( you're looking at the cup letter and automatically thinking, "WHATTT?! NO WAY!" when in all reality, my 65M KL transfers, roughly into an Ewa 65L. (Boy do I hope I'm coverting that right for you guys) That's really not bad, or far off, from what you're trying. I only sized up the cup because other reviewers said to do so. I feel like you would be pleasantly surprised with a 65N.

      Meh. You've gotten rogue bras. Don't let it discourage you โค๏ธ

    • 3

      Frazzleberry Just think of it this way. If it's too big at least it will be wearable in the future while too small is just plan painful.

    • 2

      We'll see ;) it all depends on how I feel on the day I'm ordering.. it would be great if I could find a relatively cheap stock somewhere to try though..

      How are the cups structured btw? Is it cushiony like panache's sports bra or more similar to Freya's?

      Not discouraged DerangedDragons19 just a bit wary, considering I haven't tried a "true" 60KK and 65K (aside from my Perla). Thanks though :)

    • 1

      Frazzleberry, I know through Magda, you'd get their sports bras quite bit cheaper than I paid ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

      I don't know how to answer this question. I never tried Panache or Freya. All I know is that it's like a heavier, padded material that almost conforms to my tatas :) I'd put it on par with more of a cushiony feeling :p

      True, but judging by your Perla, you would have needed to have sized up anyway ๐Ÿ˜

    • 2

      Haha that is true.. A 65K in EM is equivalent to arround an L maybe? (Honestly my previous KL fit was so weird I didn't even bother to try again. I think it was a mix of shape mismatch and size issues, maybe?)

      Oh that's no problem. The cushiony feel, sounds more like around a panache, which is really great cuz I loved the feel of that one.

    • 3

      The possibility of a good sports bra is quite a lure though

    • 2

      Iโ€™m really confused on Kris Line sizes. Iโ€™d also like a sports bra or three that arenโ€™t 32 bands ๐Ÿ˜œ

    • 2

      Mmm, I want to say yes, but I can't say it with much certainty buahhaha. I truly don't really know.
      When I ordered a soft cup from Magda, we thought it best I try the KL 65L, which I believe she said was equivalent to the 65K EM. So I can infer that the 65M here is about a 65KK EM, or 60L EM.
      I think the band on this runs slightly in between a 60 and true 65 band. :)

      Isn't it though?! Never hurts to give it a whirl :)

    • 2

      This looks and sounds fantastic! Thanks for the great review. I was really curious how these would be when I was looking through their catalog.

    • 1

      veggiechic Hey no problem. I'll update it more as I actually get to exercise in it and such. I'm hoping for good things, and with how it feels, I can say with a little certainty that at least trying them is a good choice :)

    Hasn't set fit

    My first Kris Line!

    Iโ€™ve only tried it on and worn it for a few minutes, but my first impressions are good. I ordered a cup size up from my normal 42G UK size and the cups are still verging on too small, though Iโ€™m getting some lovely cakes on a plate action as a result. I love the material on the cups and band - itโ€™s soft but firm and itโ€™s not going anywhere. It works as a nude on me though the color is a bit more orange-toned than my pale, freckled self.

    The top lace is a bit scratchy, though, and it has no stretch to ... it AND it has elastic across the top of the cup so this would probably cut in on someone with taller roots. The projection at the wire is only ok and is probably why the cup seems like itโ€™s almost too small - my breast does not settle completely in to the bottom of the cup. This doesnโ€™t really bother me since Iโ€™m still getting plenty of lift and stability and Iโ€™m getting less and less picky about aspects of fit as long as the bra still gives me adequate lift and stability!

    In all, Iโ€™ll call it a win and update after a longer wear if my impressions should change at all.

    It cracks me up that they've named this "big bra" haha. Every step I'm getting a bit closer. I retook my measurements because I have lost a small amount of weight and my ribs went down nearly an inch it seems. I believe this one would fit a little better if I went down in the band/up in the cup. I've got such narrow shoulders that I'm not surprised the straps are too wide. I found it for about $29 on amazon so that's a bit of a win. I'm not a huge fan of the seam on the cup where the lace meets the padded bottom, I'm sure in certain t-shirts it'll be noticeable.

      There's a lot of Polish bras that are referred to as "big bra" instead of here we would say "full bust." Asian retailers will specifically mark stuff as "big sizes" for full bust bras or plus size clothes. Funny how the connotations of words can differ in other places!

      The only bra I that is not too wide in the straps are my Flirtelle Ellie, my Gaia Annika, and my altered Comexims (straps moved in). You may find the straps better if you can size a band down. I often prefer to where an extender than to band size up as the straps are usually wider in the bigger band.

      I tend to find the thick diagonal seam only shows when I am a wearing a half a cup size too small. Usually, when I cup up, it smooths out under most tops.

    • I'll try to see about sizing down in the band, that'll put me in the 28" range which will probably make it even harder to find.

    Alright guys. So I've done some soul searching over the past couple months, and I reached a lot of conclusions.

    One being that I needed to lose weight. Another that I was wearing the wrong bra size, and I had to get down to the bottom of the conundrum quite desperately.

    So I lost 13 pounds (and counting :] ) and went ahead and remeasured myself. I then threw everything else out the window. Everything I thought I knew about bras and the measurements and even my body. I then took those measurements and bought this gem about a month ago, and here it is today.

    It's so lovely. I ... LOVE how much more pink it was compared to the photos.
    I'm not sure if I'd say the fit is perfect, but it's pretty close. The band doesn't squeeze me like I thought it was supposed to do. Now it's like a gentle hug. I could probably get away with the 70 band, but I really like how this fits me right now.

    I think the cups might actually be borderlining on too big, but it's hard to picture why I think that way. I guess it's just me understanding my body a little better.

    I count this as a fit win because, well, it fits pretty well right now. As I continue to lose weight, I think my bra size is going to continue to change.

      So, Iโ€™m not sure how you are losing weight but I will say that when I was exercising my arms and waist I gained band size because I was more muscular. I went down in band size when I stopped as I lost muscle and got squishier.

      Iโ€™m happy you found a band size that works for you, itโ€™s so hard to do. I was doing the same thing you were and Iโ€™ve been on bratabase for three years. Itโ€™s hard to find a good fit. This is a beautiful bra and it looks really nice on you.

      cupandahalf honestly I'm just drinking a boatload more water, stretching/yoga-type posing and such for my posture, and taking a vitamin. It could be that I'm loosening my muscles and such up. I have theories haha.

      Thanks. I appreciate it. I'm very happy with the fit. :)

      And congrats on the changes :) that's really great. I know how hard it is to plan a regimen and then stick to it.
      Maybe I should start off doing some stretches and work my way up from there?

    I have been wanting a corset forever...I have also been wanting to try semi-soft bras for quite a while.

    This model was on sale so I decided to take a chance and order it. I am so glad that I did!!

    To begin, this is built like a corset that has been attached to a semi-soft bra - What I mean by that, is that all the structure of a bra is built inside, including a band/cradle and then the components of a corset are attached to it.

    The band, fastened on the tighter set of hooks fits just like all of my KL 65 bands. So, I would be inclined ... to say that it is tight for a 70.

    As for the fit of the bra part - right out of the box, the wires were narrow and the cups were deep and projected. The wires were about 1cm wider than I like and I was about 1/2 finger depth away from tacking - no small miracle. So, I bent my wires in a bit (I do this all the time with my KLs) and now I have a hard tack at the top 3/4 of the gore. The very bottom(1/2 cm) of the gore does not tack, but in a corset, I don't expect such a perfect fit. There is too much going on with adding a body piece.

    The bottom 2/3 of the cup is lined with thin corsetry foam - to me, this is the perfect middle ground between a soft bra and a padded bra. (Hurray!! I'l be buying more KL semi-softs in the very near future!!) It is covered with cotton on the inside and pretty printed matte satin knitwear on the front side.

    The top 1/3 of the cup is the gorgeous embroidered mesh that I have come to expect from KL - on this model it is 2-toned - black with smokey lavender trim to match the printed knitwear. Stunning. I get a clean, smooth line at the top of the cup and nice rounded shape from it too https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    Straps have embroidery on the top/front 1/3, so technically they're not fully adjustable, but I have always been able to pull the adjuster up over the embroidery. Despite being someone who likes her straps short and tight, on my KL bras, I don't need to do this...but I have confirmed that it can be done.

    The gore has a small black chiffon bow with a clear crystal charm.

    The front body of the corset is shirred black mesh on the sides coming into a center panel of printed knitwear. This has a very slimming, hour-glass figure-creating effect. The bottom is trimmed with the same embroidered mesh as the top 1/3 of the bra.

    The back has a full length 2 column hook and eye closure. The sides are matte black knitwear(nice strong powerful stretch) and the center panel, where the hooks are, is the printed knitwear.

    Garters/Stocking attachments are adjustable and removable.

    The matching Brazil panties (in Poland, they call these stringo-szorty) are gorgeous, with matching embroideries and knitwear, in perfect size and cut as all KL panties are!!

    Thank you to MagdaBras4you for helping me to get this stunningly beautiful piece of Kris Line lingerie https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    Didn't fit

    This is another gorgeous soft aqua embroidered soft cup bra. It's a 3 piece cup of embroidered mesh. Bottom of the cup is lined with ultrafine lining mesh. Top panel is left sheer and it has white accents in the embroidery. There is fine, soft elastic running along the top of the cup to allow for more upper fullness. If it isn't stretched, it creates a pretty shirred edge effect.

    This is the 3rd KL soft cup style I've tried (in both 65G and 65GG) and they all fit (and measure) differently.

    Apparently, Ewa Michalak and Comexim aren't the only inconsistent ones lol

    This one is by far the ... widest and shallower of the 3. I don't get a tack (finger width away) and I get some lower cup wrinkling and a little empty cup action on the sides where the wire is too wide.

    The bra is otherwise very comfortable. And the quality is top shelf.

    Krislines have lower wing heights and longer bands than my EMs. A 65 band is a 65 cm unstretched. As someone between 65 and 70, I love it.

    I'll be keeping this bra because, despite the fit issues, it is comfortable and absolutely beautiful. Until EM starts offering embroidered styles, I'll be ordering from KL when something catches my eye.

    I have to thank MagdaBras4you for getting me this bra set.
    Her expertise, patience and customer service is more than excellent.

    P.S. I have listed the 65GG for sale.

    For those interested to compare cup shape and width of this bra vs an Ewa Michalak BM in the same size:

      Update: I took matters into my own hands. I had a sneaking suspicion that there was ample cup volume here, just that it was spread too wide.

      So...I carefully, slowly, bit by bit, BENT the underwires into much more of a U-shape (i.e. I brought it into a 14.5cm width cup) and presto! Bra softly tacks now. Then I did it with my other one and that one tacks too. Sometimes, you know, you just gotta be brave lol

    This bra is drop dead gorgeous. I am not one who usually buys matching panties but if I could find ones to match this bra I would. Its a deep crimson red with beautiful flower details. This is my first unlined bra from Kris Line. It runs true to size unlike their padded bras. The fit is almost perfect, the gore is nice and thin, not causing any discomfort. Wires are narrow and the cups are deep. I do get slight wrinkling on my smaller breast but not enough to fuss with. The top of the cups have a strip of elastic which helps them to stay in place even on my smaller breast. The straps are quite short I had to extend mine all the way to be comfortable. I am 5ft 7in with a long torso and low set breast so if you are tall you might have problems with Kris Line straps.

    Hasn't set fit

    kate166 recently did a review of an unlined Comexim half cup, and we kind of came to the conclusion the unlined Polish half cups don't get nearly enough attention on this website. So I will try to do my part to rectify this by reviewing this unlined Kris Line half cup.

    First off, it's a beauty! It reminds me of the embroidered Aubade half cups I used to wear back in the days when I still fit into them. They were flimsy little things, but beautiful! This Kris Line number is far less flimsy, and at least as beautiful, so that's a win for me. The ... cups are made out of fine, stable tule with an abstract floral pattern embroidered onto it, and the color is a gorgeous deep aubergine. The embroidery also covers the front part of the band and the straps, which is a nice touch.

    Technically, it fits, but there are some issues.

    First of all, it's a 65 band. I normally (and according to every calculator, should) wear a size 70, but this 65 band feels quite roomy. I also got one in a 70 band in my order, and that band was exactly the same length. Maybe this 65 bra is labeled incorrectly, or Kris Line may not be the most size consistent brand. Anyway, the band isn't horizontal in the back, but I don't think it's supposed to be; even when I let out the straps fully the band curves up in the back. It doesn't ride up during the day, so I'm going to go with it.

    The cups are very narrow and deep, deeper and more narrow than any Ewa or Comexim I've ever tried, so all you super narrow ladies out there, this may be an interesting option for you! Normally half cups give me a very rounded (or even flattened, when they are too shallow) profile, but this model is so deep that it gives me a slight, vintage looking peak. I quite like this look under tight turtlenecks.

    The narrowness is exacerbated by a couple of pretty aggressive side slings (the darker part on the outer area of the cup is the side sling). This pushes the breast tissue even more front and center than the narrow wires already do. For me, the side sling is too aggressive; even though the cup fits me width wise, the side sling pushes my breasts too far in and up, especially on the bottom part (I don't know if you can see this in the pictures, but from the side the wire seems to be sitting a little below my IMF. It is not. The side sling is just pushing my breast tissue up within the cup). It does give a very lifted front and center profile, and it doesn't show at all under clothes, so I may leave it, but if it bothers me I may take the side sling out.

    What I particularly like is that this model is a true half cup, that is, the top of the cups create an almost fully horizontal line across my body. Ewa half cups have this too, but Comexim half cups have a much higher side wing, which makes them almost look like plunges on my very short boobs.

    The 65FF cup is a smidge small at the moment, but I am anticipating some more weight loss, so I'll keep it (it was the last size available and heavily discounted).

    Last little thing: the lace at the very top of the cup curves out a tiny bit, due to elastic band sewn along the top edge of the cup. This make the top edge appear a little bumpy under clothes.

    In all, I like it a lot, and I strongly suggest people who need very narrow and deep bras to consider this as a half cup option. It also comes in several other pretty colours!

    • Looks cute, sure it does ! Yet the back.. Kind of kills it. I mean, deep narrow cups could benefit even more from a solid wide back & wings that would evenly distribute the load on the outer side of underwires without risk of excessive spread.

    • Weirdly enough, the back is much better when I wear the band less tight! This also mostly fixes the issue with the tight side slings, I guess the wires were bent out of shape by my fastening the bra too tightly.

      I'm wearing it on the outer most hooks now, and it doesn't ride up. I don't know why, but this band feels much looser than it is.

    • I tried 2 Krisline half cups: Afrodyta and Tiffany. Afrodyta was wonderfully narrow and deep, so I ordered Tiffany. Tiffany arrived and was a wide shallow nightmare. Ive had many Krislines and none of them had backs like this. They are consistently looser than ALL other Polish 65s though (with Kinga coming right behind).

    • Very pretty! I like the look of bras like this, but I would guess that the texture of the lace might show under clothing. How did you feel the actual cups look under clothing, was the texture visible?

      Iโ€™ve also had some bras that feel weirdly large in the band, but in actuality they arenโ€™t. How is the stretch on the band? I just tried one that definitely felt big at first, but the band was extremely firm, so it was fine as it didnโ€™t move around.

      Itโ€™s so frustrating though when bands come in inconsistent, so you donโ€™t know what size to order. I have had this happen with Freya quite a bit. Hopefully you just got a fluke here.

    • Charlotteke ,
      Tightening the hooks narrows the wings/band and they loose torsion momentum I guess. IMHO this should have been a 3 hooks at least.

      Reason why 4, 5 and more hooks backs seldom ride up and tolerate a wider spectrum of band mis-fits before taking the elevator.

    • 1

      to me it looks like a design flaw in the bra. The straps a set very wide in the front and quite narrow in the back, so they're pulling on the band at an acute angle and causing the distortion you're experiencing. I think this explains why when you loosened up the band, the problem was not as exaggerated, as it changed the angle at which the straps were pulling on the band.

      I could be completely wrong though :)
      just my two cents

    • 1

      AGBras that's a bummer! It sounds like Kris Line is not a very consistent brand. A local bra store has stopped selling several Polish brands for that reason. Oh well, yay for online ordering with free returns!

      belleandblues the embroidery is quite flat and doesn't show much under clothes, with the exception of the top edge, but it isn't worse than most of my unlined bras. I usually find that the seams show a little through thin or clingy fabrics.
      The band stretches quite a lot, yet it's firm. The stretchiness had me confused at first, but it's actually fine on the outer hook. Which is good because it will last me longer this way.

      femineaaeterna you're absolutely right, a 3 hook band would have been so much better. Also, the band quickly narrows down from the wing, which makes it very low on the sides. I'm not particularly squishy, but this style of band gives me a bit of a roll. I wish brands would think about this more, but especially in my current size range they rarely do. 3 hook bands I've only encountered in the G and up cup range.

      thelittleone I hadn't thought of it, but I guess you're right! The straps are set at the very outside of the cup in the from (which I like), but they should have been set wider in the back as well.

    • Charlotteke ,
      Thnaks for the extensive contribution ! I so much love to learn from seaspned bra users.

      My 5 cents on bra visibility. Most of time I can not afford it. To the opposite indeed.

      However, a nice well fitted cute bra is a definitive visual asset when "guessed" or "flashed" under appropriate clothes. I perceive it as a visual clue that all is there, taken care of, in potentially serviceable condition. And logically go for it under the right circumstances.

      Even if the fashion police puts me on their heads-list, bra lines can be a huge meanwhile modest seduction factor, kind of the stripes one could proudly wear on the shouder pads of an uniform shirt.

    • Great review! And what a gorgeous bra.

      I have a KrisLine half cup that's too small for me, but I really do love the look and I wish it fit me. I'll keep my eyes open for more of their half cups.

    This is a gorgeous lively aqua colored bra! Sadly it doesnโ€™t fit. Wires are too wide and straps too far apart for me. Band is a nice and firm for a 30. Fabric is very beautiful. Center gore is nice and narrow. Straps are quite long if youโ€™re on the taller or lower boobed side. Elastic meets a coordinating non stretch section along the front of the strap. If youโ€™re short or high boobed they arenโ€™t going to adjust short enough for you. It does give a lovely shape if Kris Line is for you.

    70G

    Didn't fit

    My shape: FOB, soft tissue, narrow shoulders and roots, projected. My perfect bra is Ewa Michalak BM style

    I bought this about a month and a half ago, when I saw that Zulily was having a Kris Line sale. I don't know much about the brand, but I know it's Polish and they seem to follow the same sizing guidelines as Ewa Michalak, for the most part. I researched them a bit before finally deciding on this bikini top in size 70G, which would be UK 32G/US 23i, my normal size. There's hardly any data on Kris Line bikinis, so I had to gauge what size to get based ... on the bra measurements that have been added here.
    Anyways, I finally received the bikini today, after much anticipation. Maybe I had FINALLY found a well-fitting bikini top! When I opened the plastic it was wrapped in and saw how small the cups were, my heart sank. You know that feeling... like you KNOW it isn't gonna fit, you can just tell my looking at it! But then you think, well, maybe looks are deceiving and you try it on with your hopes up, only to have them dashed to the ground when you see breast tissue spilling out of the front, center, sides, everywhere on the too-small cup. How in the heck could this be a UK 32G?? There's no way, it must be mislabeled or something, or Kris Line runs at least 2 sizes smaller in the cup for their bikinis or something.

    Yeah, so that's been my morning. Not great, to be honest.

    Despite the bad fit, this bikini is super pretty! The color is a really gorgeous, deep emerald green. It really doesn't look like a full coverage style to me; the cups are pretty short, and looks more balconette-ish, but that may be because of the too-small cup size. The clasp is a golden metal snap together thing, and the straps are nice and wide. The fabric is really soft and has a sort of shine to it. Inside the cups, there's a layer of black mesh along the bottoms.

    I really want to try more Kris Line, both bras and bikinis, but now I'm at a loss as to what size I should even start with. I would definitely try this particular bikini in a larger size! It's really pretty, and I had fantasized all month about how cute it would be paired with some flower print retro high waisted bottoms!

    Ah, well. It's not to be, I guess.

    • Oh I loveddd this color from the moment it first came out. It's such a shame it didn't fit because it's a beauty. I'm sorry it didn't fit! Hopefully Magda will be able to help you out a bit? Maybe she has size ideas for Kris line!
      Really though, judging by your bikini and my sports bra, maybe ordering two cups up wouldn't be such a bad thing?

    • That's what I'm hoping! So far, in my lengthy bikini journey, I've tried many different Ava styles, (they don't fit me right, or are a shape mismatch, or something. So those are already checked off my list) I have one Dalia I ordered in size 65J that was HUGE in the cup, (I actually took it to a seamstress, but they just sewed a dart into it and it looks weird so I don't wear it) this Kris Line one that was way too small, and I have one custom Ewa Michalak that I can wear, but the straps are really wide so it gets painful after a while.
      I'm running out of Polish options! I'm hoping Magda can swoop in and save the day.

    • Oh, I forgot my first bra-fit bikini was a Comexim, and that was too small in the cup, too. I ended up selling that one a while back. I tried to order a different one last summer, and the one they sent me was so messed up, it was unwearable. The band stretched to 39 inches! and the cup was this weird blend of too large in the cup but too small in the wire?! I can't even explain it, and will never order from them again, which is a shame.
      I just can't win!

    • Oof that's too bad. I get what you mean about Ava. If my tissue was any firmer than it was, I feel like it might be difficult to get an okay shape with it. I'm not 100% okay with only two hooks too. Kind of a dilemma for me there too haha!
      That's too bad about the Dalia. Did you consider ordering a size or two down? I've not heard too much about them ha.
      I was super jello of your saint Tropez bikini. Tooooo cute. I'm sorry it doesn't fit like you were hoping :( I custom order Mamba I think it was from them in an S shape and big yikes. ๐Ÿ˜ฌThat was a long while ago though, so I can't even say what was wrong with it.
      Oh I'm sure Magda can help you out! She seems to be fairly knowledgeable :)

    • Oh god. Don't even get me started on Comexim hahahhaa. If you look at my Comexim tries you'll get a good laugh at least. Prettyyyyy dang bad haha. Every single time. It's a shame because I like a lot of their designs ๐Ÿคท

      Is it possible Zulily sold you one that failed QA? I thought they were supposed to be the equivalent of an outlet mall.

    • Oh, I'm so sorry that these bikinis do not suit you.:( I had an Emerald Beach bikini in my hands today and it really is in a beautiful color.
      The sizes of Kris Line is completely different than the size of other Polish bras. Please don't suggest GG, HH, because they are not UK sizes but only have such names. This can be compared in the size tables of the respective brands. In the UK sizes are given in inches and in Kris Line in centimeters and hence the difference. The naming of the cups is misleading. I've already put in a corverter cup size but I want to add it again.

      https://www.dropbox.com/s/33vj9ebbze78iwm/Conversion%20cup%20sizes%20Kris.jpg?dl=0

      According to him, if you wear a G-UK cup, it is I-US, GG-Kris Line and you can even be tempted to size H.

      I hope that I have dispelled your doubts about the size of Kris Line. I am willing to answer your other questions. If you are not sure, write to me at: contact@bras4you.com

    • MagdaBras4you Already emailed you! :) I sent it when I was really distraught about my swimsuit problem, hahah!
      And thank you for the conversion! What is really bad is that the label and the description on the website BOTH state they are US cup size 32i! I think it was not labeled correctly and was actually a US size 32G, which, obviously, is much too small for me.
      I know better than to order any bras or bikinis from Zulily now! They use a completely different sizing system, so it's hard for me to figure out what size is actually mine.
      I'm hoping you have some cute bikini options you can send my way! :)

    • I am glad that although I can help a little. Of course, I will look for a nice bikini and read it willingly and I will answer you as soon as I can open the mail - have some problem with the server.:(

    This style is one of the deeper/more projected at the wire and more narrow soft balcony bras that I have from Kris line.

    No wire-bending needed. It fit me right out of the box, with no wrinkling anywhere and a nice tack at the gore.

    I would be tempted to say, "I wish all KL softcups fit me like this. I wish they were all like this right out ... of the box."

    Which leads me to this: I have many KL softcup balcony bras now and they seem to follow a trend: there are those with 1 vertical seam and those with 2 vertical seams. Those that are constructed like this one, with 2 vertical seams, tend to fit like this!

    Stella is a 4 part cup construction with 3 lower panels (2 vertical seams) and 1 upper horizontal panel.

    The lower sections have a delicate embroidery and are lined in mesh.

    The upper panel is unlined and has a much more ornate embroidery. It also has a narrow colour-matched elastic that closes the top of the cup a little. I personally LOVE this elastic (I have short roots and firm tissue) but if you have tall soft roots, it could be a different case for you.

    The cradle and gore are both covered with ornate embroidery as well.

    There is a small bow with a fairy charm at the gore.

    From the inside you can see that the gore is in the inverted V-shape that I like. It dips up and is great if you are short-waisted.

    The straps have a picot trim to prevent adjuster slippage and are decorated with an embroidered panel and therefore, technically, only 1/2 adjustable, but the adjuster can be forced over the embroidery if needed to shorten the straps more.

    The band is TTS for KL - size is 65 and it measures 65cm un-stretched. It is made of a soft, matte/sueded firm knitwear. I LOVE this material for bands and panties alike. It is soft, comfortable, supportive and stretchy. It washes and retains its shape and colour very well.

    I chose Brazilian (stringo-szorty) bottoms and Magda sent me the matching garter as a BEAUTIFUL birthday gift. Both pieces are constructed beautifully from a combination of the embroidered panels, matte knitwear and opaque mesh.

    They fit as expected - i.e. small!!

    KL panties and garters fit small. I usually wear XS underwear and I always buy size Small in KL and even then they are quite snug. However, the design and construction, and therefore fit and look, of their bottoms are superb.

    This bra cost about 150 PLN - which converts to about $50 Canadian. Well worth it for such great quality and detail!! Much thanks to MagdaBras4you for helping me to purchase this set direct from Poland where Kris Line lingerie is made.

    • Really pretty! Wish it had no strip. Did you have any trouble with the strip(s) with your mom, out of curiosity?

    • Calluna no...she doesn't fill the top of the cup in Krisline 65G. In Gorsenia 65G yes. But she would quad in it even without the strip. It's more spilling out than quadding. 65H is too big. Again, she can't fill the top of the cup. She's so soft it's like pouring pudding into a ziploc. I HATE molded bras but I think she needs one...we will find out on Tuesday.

    • I do know that pudding feeling....hopefully something will work out and youโ€™ll crack the code for her. Please keep us updated...

    • Yes it's true. April is crazy about pink :) You look fantastic in it.๐Ÿ‘™๐ŸŒบ

    65G

    Didn't fit

    Today, my first Krisline order arrived. This is one that I did before I started working with Magda, and they're both discontinued styles.

    This is the first one. This is the bra that got me lusting after Krisline. I saw it on the blog Cakes on a Plate and went nuts looking for it. I finally found it on a Polish website, Jagna, and paid a hefty shipping price.

    But, it was worth it. This bra is even more beautiful in person than I ever could've hoped for.

    I have a real love affair for pink flowers, especially apple and cherry blossoms.

    This bra and panties check all ... my boxes...flowers, printed satin, embroidery and lace. Its feminine to the max. Even the straps are embroidered with pink flowers!

    The wires:
    -are narrow. Just a little wider than EM.

    The band:
    -is very TTS...I'm wearing it on the loosest hook comfortably.
    -has side boning (I like this feature in bras)
    -is firm knitwear. (Feels like itll last a long time before stretching out).


    The straps are NOT fully adjustable due to the embroidery. But, on this model I'm ok with the strap length and actually have 2" to spare.

    As for cup fit...its not perfect, but for a bra set that I love this much, I will deal.
    The cups are deep...very deep. But not quite enough so right at the center gore. This results in a soft tack.
    I also have the tiniest bit of gaping at the inner edge of the upper cup. I think this is also due to lack of depth at the gore. But, a stitch or 2 will draw it in, if I'm bothered to get that nit-picky.

    The upper cup has elastic. Not that plasticky strip that's usually used, but super soft, super narrow elastic. Elastic!! This is GENIOUS as I think itll be more forgiving for upper fullness that would get quadding with those non-stretch plastic strips.

    I ordered XS panties to match this bra - 1 tanga (Krisline calls this "stringo szorty") and 1 bikini brief.

    They fit small. They're a full size smaller than XS 34(6) panties from Ewa.
    But, they have MAJOR stretch and are absolutely beautiful in cut and quality.

    Krisline has won my heart for style and quality. Even though the fit is 95%, I'll be buying more in the future.

    I ordered 2 sizes - I'll add measures for both to Database AND I'll post the 65GG for sale to see if some other girlie girl is interested in snagging one of these discontinued beauties.

      Might get some flurries on Sunday or Monday....flurries is the โ€œf wordโ€ here. The city sold the snow plows. We canโ€™t handle the snow (except for the people who moved here from everywhere else). Iโ€™m Montreal born but I moved to Florida when I was 2.5, so moving back to Canada after 30 years away, we picked the warmest and least snowy place. Iโ€™m with Wilderness1 that 20c and under is cold, but I have acclimated a lot more since I have been here.

    • It is neg 22F here currently and we have about 20" of snow on the ground, and I love it. I could do with out the temp extreme mind you, but I absolutely love the snow. Come Sunday it's supposed to get up to 55F so my beautiful snow will turn into hard sheets of ice and slush, which won't be as fun....

    • Hate it, hate it, hate it. I'd like to live in a bikini, shorts and flipflops

    • Haha AprilGoulding. Soon. You can have that very soon. ๐Ÿ˜„ And maybe in a new KrisLine bikini!! ๐Ÿ˜

      They're not associated with the one piece though. I would think manufacturers assume a fixed underbust to hip ratio. In other words, not going to work for me unless very stretchy.

      In Atlanta the school systems are scared of embarrassing themselves like a couple of years ago during our "snowpocalypse" when the whole world laughed at us grinding to a halt with 2 inches of snow. So they canceled school 24 hours in advance for yesterday with a predicted 1.5 inches. We got no snow to play in, just kids cooped up at home! It was 45 degrees in the morning! Today however it was 23 degrees when my kiddos went to school, and that is super cold for Atlanta. I can't even imagine what some of you are facing!

    • We don't really consider it "facing" lol
      We are used to it and equipped for it. We're a hardy crowd ;)
      I just don't like it.

    • Sovavosi Damn I didn't think about that. :-( Sorry. If only Ewa did one pieces. You know she woyld factor both parts separately. .....

      In MT, School was still a go with 24" of fresh snow and 25F below, all they did was cancel the buses but kids were still expected to go to school. Snow days didn't exist. But when snow is on the ground at least 9 months out of the year, it wouldn't be much of an education system if they didn't work around it, right?

    85HH

    Hasn't set fit

    As part of my new year's resolution I want to go through my closet and measure all my older bras and list whatever doesn't fit. So I'm finally adding measurements and a review to a bikini top that I've already had around for a couple of years. This bikini is one of my favourites, but it's not getting a lot of wear (through no fault of its own, but simply because I don't have a lot of need for swimwear), so I don't have the feeling that it's stretched out.

    Regarding the construction and materials, this bikini is very good quality and looks well made. It's also looking great ... after some wear, including sun, salt and pool water. I only hand wash it, very rarely delicate machine wash. One detail that I particularly like is that the hardware is metallic and not plastic. Especially the back clip is much sturdier this way, but the strap extenders also look good quality. The straps are stretchy and they're fully adjustable. They're not too wide set and are comfortable on me. Regarding the strap length, it seems in line with most of my other bras, neither particularly short nor long. I also really like the design, I find the combination of polka dots and flower pattern to work really well with the bikini's colour scheme. I find that Kris Line has some really lovely designs.
    The cup is a balconette construction, and it's lined with white stretchy mesh. Overall the whole cup is stretchy, but it's still quite supportive. The wing comes with side boning, but it's not uncomfortable on me at all. The wires seem medium weight, neither too flexible nor too hard.

    Regarding the fit, the cups are deep but also quite wide, at 16.5cm width. The things that I particularly like about the fit is that the cups have enough immediate projection and they are short, so this model will work well for short roots. The wire is also short both at the wing and the gore. Overall the cups give a very projected but natural look - as there's not so much height to the cups there's also not a lot of vertical space where the cup could provide the lift up towards. Despite the fact that the gore is also relatively wide, the bikini doesn't create a splayed look. It is relatively supportive, but definitely nothing you'd use to run to the pool.

    The size was just a lucky guess from my side. I had seen some reviews that Kris Line runs very small, so I simply ordered the largest size that I had found in this model. The sizing as written on the sewn-in label is quite strange. I think it's intended as:
    EU/D NL/A/CH 85HH
    B/F 100HH
    UK 38
    So the UK size seems to be missing a cup size https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
    The label is also sewn backwards, which I actually only noticed now as I'm reviewing it.

    I ordered the matching tie side bikini bottoms, which I personally find also run very small and are quite skimpy. The adjustable ties do make the size a bit more flexible, but I find that they're not my favourite cut as they don't feel very secure.

    Since this is an older model and the only Kris Line I've ever tried, I don't know if the fit is the same in other similar bikinis, but overall this is was a nice find.

    70I

    Didn't fit

    So I've tried this bra before but in 70GG and it seemed to run very small in the cup and was about 2 cups too small for me. This is three cups larger than that and I will say it maybe would have fit better in 70HH but a little more room in the cup in a lounge bra is no big deal.

    70I is much better, although I find I don't quite fill out the cups, *but* everything I wrote in my other review still stands.

    The middle part does a wonderful job of separating, and the bra is extremely comfy. Now I will say I get the typical ... wireless soft bra look in this size. Pointy, bullety, etc.
    However, with a shirt on it is actually not so bad--my guess is it would be if it was form fitting, but all my shirts are baggy kind of so I have no such issues.

    The cups are supportive enough that it keeps my breasts lifted, though it's nothing spectacular.

    For a wireless, soft bra this is a great one. There is no skin on skin contact which is my main issue with wireless bras, the boobs sort of just fold inside it and it's as if I'm not wearing one, but not in this one.

    And you know, I'm actually extremely impressed with the quality of this bra. It is sturdy, the materials are soft but they HOLD and the lace doesn't feel cheap at all. The bra feels expensive even if it wasn't really (I think I paid about $50ish for it).

    *** As a side note I have to say that I was very impressed with the service from the seller (Magda from bras4you.com) as she made sure I get the size I want even if my return package was very very VERY late. Highly recommend.

      I thought their cups were just in a different sizing range. I also liked the way pointier bras looked under baggy clothes (esp winter clothes)

    • My size was 32FF when I bought first one in 32GG so I already sized up 2 cups, but I guess not enough

      If you need very detailed photos of the construction I am more than willing to send. The middle part for separation is actually genius. I don't have any Royce bras but I feel like I read some had this too? Not sure...

      It looks great on you brasaremean. And it looks comfortable not just supportive!

      I too wish they would make it in my size, especially since they do make up to an 28:21 (60O for them) and to a P cup in the larger bands (:22 tier.) Even with it running small in the cup, I have a few tiers wiggle room with that range.

      Glad this one worked out better for you, and I agree 100% MagdaBras4you is spectacular with customer service!! :-)

      Last time I asked about one out of range I was told no. They currently only offer one bra available in my range and to the 28:21, Betty in White. Even Betty in Purple wasn't offered to my range. Just because they can do them doesn't mean they will unfortunately! Yet some is better than none. :-)

      I believe they used to supply more models in the larger cups, but lower sales resulted in lower production. They are not a made to order brand, so it is logical.

    Didn't fit

    This bra is a very fun summer color, it is trendy peach, but reminds me a bit of orange sherbert. The bra has very pretty touches with lace, including floral lace half way up the straps.
    This bra didn't fit me quite right, which wasn't a total surprise, I assumed it would be one cup size too big. Thanks again to MamaPagan for sending it to me to try. It is awesome to try new brands and sizes to narrow down what works, and add in all the info for the database.
    I am close set, full on bottom, and I need a good amount of ... immediate projection. This bra has a fairly supportive feeling band. It has enough immediate projection for me. The problems I had, however, were ones that don't leave me in a rush to try this one cup size down. The sides of the cups went waaaay in to my armpits, and were very uncomfortable. I both don't quite fill the tops of the cups, yet I also get cutting in from the top of the cup. The bra also doesn't provide the level of shaping and support that Comexim does.

    First Kris Line bra I ever had, I never liked the designs. I bought it accidentally on a flea market for $4 and wanted to try it out. Surprisingly it fits and has a lot of immediate projection (or at least what I believe this is called), giving me a great boost. I will definitely look into more KL bras in the future.

    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.

      i was just thinking about Kris Line semi-soft . . having the padding only on the bottom means you have the support of padding, but not that thick line at the top of the cup that shows through t-shirts. I tried one once that was way too small in the band and keep thinking i should try another some day

    • 1

      The band is snug but I think they do +4? All the different sizing confuses me to no end! I really have to swoop and push the breast tissue into submission almost for the lace not to pucker. The joys of different bra shapes. The fitter pushed my breast tissue inward toward the center to get this one to fit. Could be my breast shape too...still learning on that one.

    • no, i knew mine would be too small, but even with the extender, the straps were too wide. 65KK - Kris Line ยป Toni Semi Soft - i've been buying Ewa Michalaks in 75, but panache in 32.

      It is funny that I didn't find Kris Line bras that tight in the smaller cup sizes (65DD/E). My 65DD - Kris Line ยป Toni Semi Soft also does a pointy shape, while the 65DD - Kris Line ยป Margerita is much shallower and fits more round, even though it being a semi-soft also, with the difference that Margerita doesn't have cookie pockets.

      I have 2 padded Kris Lines in 65HH, they are almost unwearably loose for a 65 band. For example, I think in comexim you would have to go up to a 75 band to get a comparably loose one, they are definitely not the same as my comexim 65 or even 70 bands.

    • 1

      I think that this is such a pretty and feminine bra. I love the lace and the detailing. I do agree though that it does give a slightly pointed shape but i don't think it is that bad, it is almost very 50's look. It looks lovely on you and looks to fit you perfectly . I will be looking for this bra here in Australia. Thank you for a great review.

    • Scott thank you! The lace is very pretty on this bra for sure. I hope you can find this brand! It is cotton so it is lightweight too.

    • Aaah I meant 65FF, not HH

    I think this bra is too small for me as I'm spilling out of the tops of the cups and borderline out of the bottoms too. The band is huge. I have it on the tightest hooks and I can still pull it pretty far from my body.

      Oh geez I didn't even notice the band size being so stretchy, lol! It's good to know they make sports bras though.
      So I have 2 older, worn panache Sports Bras in size 32G. Since I have 3 of them total, and don't really wear them other than on my daily walks, would you want me to send you one to try on? Keep in mind, it's been worn quite a bit, so it's going to be a little more stretched out than a brand new sports bra.
      Let me know! I'm happy to help in any bra journeys, and if the 32G fits, then at least you will have a sports bra you can wear until you can get a newer one!

    • Right, so if you wanted to give one a try, I'd say order down a band and up two cups to be safe? Magda could definitely help you if you're ever in the market :)

      Hey totally! I'd really appreciate that if you're willing! And the stretchy factor is okay because I think I'm more in between a 32 and 34 band right now haha. The 32 is too tight and the 34 too loose on the loosest hooks haha.

      mandapandarawks Regular Krisline bras do not fit small. In fact, I'd say they fit a bit generously in my size.

      Now, I have this bra in my hands (thank you DerangedDragons19 ) , so I'm comparing it to my other non-sport Krislines...

      ...because you girls know I love this stuff ๐Ÿค“

      Ok. The bra is size 75 and the band is 74cm unstretched. This is consistent with my other KLs, which at size 65, have bands measuring 64-65cm unstretched.

      Compared to EM size 65 which measures 59cm unstretched, and Gorsenia 65 which measures 61cm unstretched, yes, longer.

      But, consistent for Krisline.

      Now, the next part, stretched length is subjective, because it's hard to know when to stop, so instead of measuring I'll say this: it's less firm. Yes. Definitely less firm. It's due to the material used for the band. It's a thin, perforated material. Double-layered, but for sure not my favorite. It feels like tank top material and will surely offer awesome breathability but it is definitely relying on the elastic for structure. The band is NOT a high point on this bra.

      I love how the rest of the bra is made. Straps are thick, soft, not too wide set, great - but only half adjustable and I've got them tightened all the way. Granted, the bra is far too big for me. I like to think strap length would be scaled. The wires and gore are narrow. The cups are thick - I LOVE the cup material - and the top of the bra has a nice slight v-neck shape. The perforated band material is used between the cups and on the center of the bridge - great for sweating.

      As for cup size...definitely fits small. This one feels only 2 sizes too big for me, which would give me 65HH. I wear 65G in other Krisline bras. So, mandapandarawks I agree that KL sport seems to fit about 2 cups smaller.

      Would I buy one? I don't know. To start, I don't wear underwires in the gym. But, I like everything about this bra except the band material. Maybe they make with different band material? I'm gonna check the catalogue photos ๐Ÿ˜œ

      Wow, those cups do run small in comparison to their label size. How odd since in my experience their regular bra cups don't.
