Leopard print is not suited to everyone’s tastes, especially in Poland, where we still associate with chiffon blouses from the 1980’s. However, I like it with a passion and so much so that I have a collection of ‘feline’ bras; I will resist the greene lingerie, but not leopard print. So I was very pleased when I received a package with Zoe, a spotted sexy balcony that caught my eye at the Salon Bielizny expo. And then I was even more happy when I put it on: absolutely. best. Polish. balconette. I. have. ever. had.

I will not lie: I was skeptical. Aesthetics are great, but a padded push-up? And in the cut of a balcony? It could look terribly bad with my bust (very wide root, small circumference). Yet – ladies and gentlemen, we have a success! Sure, it is more or less thanks to how the inner pockets are sewn in: instead of being at the sides and in the lining of the cups, they are sewn inside the cup at the bottom and raise the breasts from the bottom instead of pushing them from the sides, so that we do not have the pointy boob effect.
Zoe is lounge-level comfy – you put in on happy, wears it with pleasure, and take off without feeling that you are pulling a horse-collar off your chest. I chose size 70F, because the Kinga’s band are getting tighter and tighter for my taste, and it fits great fastened on the first row of hooks.
Bust is slope-shaped and is deliciously round. The gore does not tack perfectly (I will fit my pinky in that space, and my fingers – as my mother always claimed – are of a pianist), but it does not affect comfort or support in any way. Even my boyfrinf, who is already hard to impress, did and impressive ‘ooooo’. An additional bonus is that Zoe works as a strapless bra!
After removing the cookies, the effect is a bit less spectacular, but still looks very good. The cookies are quite small, which is a plus for me. The design reminds me of some popular balconies fromAgent Provocateur, which unlike Kinga does not cater to my size.
This leopard print. Well, that’s beautiful. By itself, it would not be so impressive, but with these large fuchsia bows it is already a purebred seduction tool. These are really big bows, by the way – for comparison, a standard gore bow will be half the size 🙂
Additional note: Kinga is the first popular Polish brand, in which my dimensions finally agree with the size chart! These are currently 72/94 in centimetres, and the size indicated by the chart is indeed 70F. Bravo! Most of the size charts suggest a 75C.
To match Zoe, we can get either higher or lower rise panties, the latter with straps. They cut a little into the soft tissues of the belly (and slip off the butt), but it’s nothing, I’m so delighted that it does not even bother me.
The only thing that bothers me is the lack of these delicious bows on the panties – I am seriously considering the detachment of one from the bra and sewing it onto the panties because oh, PINK BOWS, DEAR GOD, THOSE BOWS.
