I purchased this bra from a Zulily sale and I had to do some guesswork with the size cause I couldn't find very much info. I ended up choosing this 70G, which is technically an index size smaller than what I usually wear (:8, FF UK). I was really surprised when I tried it on and the cup was far too large! It has mostly empty space at the top and a little wrinkling at the bottom, so i think it might fit someone who is a 32FF-ish with more taller roots than me (mine are extremely short). The band is definitely true to size tho, not small ... like other Polish brands--it stretches right to 32. I would love to try Samanta again in a cup size down, because this bra is so beautiful.
It has side boning and a side sling in the cups. The shape is spread a bit wider and shallower than other Polish bras, looks like it would give a rounded shape held closer to the chest. It seems like it is closed on top, with a strip of elastic sewn at the top of the cup (although I've seen someone remove that with a seam ripper before). It's a stiffer mesh that's definitely strong enough to give shape to soft breasts. The embroidery is absolutely beautiful, and the bra is a deep bordeaux type red. The straps are half adjustable because there is padding halfway up them. 2 hooks in the back, the wider spaced type, think Freya not Cleo. Very narrow gore--the wires come about as close as possible without overlapping. Cute little gold "S" insignia in the center. It comes in a cute little box, which is something I've seen Polish brands such as Gorsenia and Kris Line do and I really like that, it just makes it feel very special I guess.
Sadly I will have to sell it, but I will definitely be purchasing Samanta again, I can't wait to have a bra this pretty that fits me!
