Kris Line are a Polish brand, stocking bras in 65-100 (30-44) bands and A-KK cups. The brand has their own sizing system – each cup in Kris Line is based on a 2cm increase, compared to a one inch difference in UK brands. They also use an I cup between HH and J. I have been curious about Kris Line for a long time, but due to being a Polish brand, their bras are often very hard to find at reasonable prices in the UK. Recently, Brastop have got quite a few older season models in stock, including a couple up to a K cup.
The first bra I decided to try was the Selena Semi-soft Balconette, a half-padded underwired bra in green. Brastop skip the I cup, so a KL 70JJ is listed as a 32K to correspond with UK cups. I am around a 30KK in UK brands at the moment, so I decided to try the 32K to get a good comparison with UK brands. The measurements of both of the bras in this post are displayed at the bottom.

Anyone remember my long-term love affair with emerald green lingerie, particularly Bravissimo’s Boudoir Beau? Well, guess what I just got? 😀
Hello, new favourite set! Yes, it’s an AW12 item which means it’ll probably go in sale imminently, but I couldn’t risk it going out of stock – God knows when the next emerald green J+ bra will come along! Please please please bra companies, more emerald green! Anyway, I’m not going to go into my usual spiel of why I love this bra, because I think it’s pretty clear. It’s emerald green, c’mon 😉 But I absolutely love the big bows on the gore and shorts, and I think the black lace details are just so sophisticated and sexy, particularly on smaller cups with no extra lining. As for the shorts, I think the fact that I own them shows that I absolutely adore them, as at £17 a pair, I’m much more the type to mix and match! In this case, I thought I might just have to treat myself!
