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. Read more 484 more words
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 /: Read more 75 more words
**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. Read more 494 more words
I’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 I’m getting some lovely cakes on a plate action as a result. I love the material on the cups and band - it’s soft but firm and it’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 it’s almost too small - my breast does not settle completely in to the bottom of the cup. This doesn’t really bother me since I’m still getting plenty of lift and stability and I’m getting less and less picky about aspects of fit as long as the bra still gives me adequate lift and stability!
In all, I’ll call it a win and update after a longer wear if my impressions should change at all. Read more 112 more words
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.
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. Read more 126 more words
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=":)" /> Read more 442 more words
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.
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.
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! Read more 542 more words
This is a gorgeous lively aqua colored bra! Sadly it doesn’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 you’re on the taller or lower boobed side. Elastic meets a coordinating non stretch section along the front of the strap. If you’re short or high boobed they aren’t going to adjust short enough for you. It does give a lovely shape if Kris Line is for you.
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. Read more 311 more words
This is NOT a colour for the faint of heart, let me tell you.
Now, MagdaBras4you will tell you: "April LOVES pink!!" and this bra is a very, very saturated pink colour.
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. Read more 400 more words
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. Read more 317 more words
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. Read more 464 more words
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. Read more 196 more words
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. Read more 93 more words
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.
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
