Slovianka Lingerie – Fantazja 70F
Shape may disappoint girls who prefer the perfect, apple-round boobs effect – the bra is designed to give a natural, low shape. That is definitely something to work on.
I had my doubts regarding the band – Slovianka’s brafitter put me into 70F, which fitted really nice in the store, but after 4-5 wears I had t switch to the second row of hooks. If you wash the bra in cold water the band comes right back to its original measurements, but I wanted to try a 65 to see if it will fit better. I had to be helped by two people to hook the 65 band, so as you can fathom it didn’t fit me better 😉 If you are between sizes choose the bigger band.
F is the first cup that fits me – E was way too small. I’d suggest to go for a cup that corresponds with your British size if you are small-boobed (as in E for E and D for D).
The lace doesn’t bleed colour which I was very afraid of. I was told by the Slovianka team that it is a special Italian fabric which simply cannot bleed or dye any of your other laundered items. Unlike many Polish and British products the lace on Fantazja is very soft, delicate, not even slightly scratching – I would compare it to a very thin jacquard.
The fastening is slippery – it likes to cause some trouble while hooking it and you might want to do it a few times to get an idea how to do it. Label says you need to wash the bra by hand in 30 degrees Celcius but as a lazy little shit I disregarded that advice. Nothing was destroyed when I laundered the set in the washing machine. To be honest I am waiting for any bra to come out of the washing machine ruined, since even my silk Mimi Holliday survived such treatment.
When it comes to bottoms Slovianka offers pretty briefs – if you are wide-hipped you might want to go size up. I have them in Large and they are minimally too small in waist, but not small enough to make it an issue. The back part has only one seam and no elastic on the bottom part of the lace so no VPLs for us.
