A while back now, Ewa Michalak released the BM cut, an unpadded style featuring a stretch lace upper – a construction which I am always a huge fan of! So, of course, I had to try it out for myself. One style I was particularly lusting after was the BM Gwiezdny Pył, so I was overjoyed when one reader very kindly bought it off my wishlist. Here’s how I found it!
The Curvy Kate Carmen is a bra that I absolutely fell for as soon as the first promotional pictures were released. I’ve longed for a longline bra ever since they came into fashion a few years back, and when I saw it at the start of 2014, I knew I had to get it, even if it was a Thrill Me-style squeeze. When I discovered the Carmen would be available in 28-38 D-J, well…
…I knew it was meant to be. This is the Carmen Longline (32J) and Thong (14) in Rose Mix, the first colourway this set was released in. I’ve owned this set for about a year now, and I am still just as in love with it as I was when I first saw it. Continue reading
Kris Line are a Polish large-cup lingerie brand, stocking a wide range of sizes in both padded and unpadded styles. They pride themselves on providing high quality, well-fitting lingerie, using top European materials, laces and embroidery. They produce a variety of styles, including basic pieces, fashion styles, nursing bras, nightwear and swimwear. I have tried Kris Line before, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to find a large enough cup from UK stockists. However, I was lucky enough to meet the Kris Line team at Moda in August, and as well as enabling me to see all of their lovely AW14 and SS15 collections, they also emailed me a while afterwards, offering to send me something to review – which of course, I gladly accepted!
After some discussion about what size I would need (currently 70K/KK in Ewa Michalak, 65O/P in Comexim, 30K in most UK brands), we decided to go for a size 65L. So, I was sent the lovely Eva set in a 65L & Medium. Continue reading
Avocado are a Polish brand that I have reviewed previously on the blog, and one that I think many UK readers have been curious about since they introduced international delivery. When I last tried Avocado, I found my closest fit was a 70L, though I would ideally wear a 65M/N if it was made. Avocado very kindly sent me another two bras to try out, which is what I’ll be reviewing today!
My last Ewa Michalak review was of the S Wiśniówka over a year ago, and while I adored the bra and found it both stunning and supportive, my boobs grew and I stopped fitting into it seemingly immediately. While I have longed for more EMs ever since then, not knowing which size I’d need, the possibility of size inconsistencies, and the price of custom ordering kept putting me off. That is, until I saw some of the amazing styles that had been released, and last year’s SM Burek on sale. So, taking a risk, I ordered two bras in a 70K.
This is the absolutely stunning SM Burek. I have been in love with this bra ever since I first saw it, and looking at these pictures, I don’t think it’s hard to explain why! Larger-cupped versions of bras can easily end up losing their delicate appearance, but this bra manages to stay beautifully sweet and romantic in every size. Continue reading
