I remember the day that I spotted BM Kleks on the Ewa Michalak website.
It is described on the site as follows:
What’s left after Ink run out in the inkwell? – blot of ink => Kleks 😉
Do you happen to like dark-coloured underwear but feel fed up with black bras? …so there’s a bra ideal for you.
Bra made of fine elastic lace in deep navy blue with black knitwear underlayer will definitely meet your expectations.
I was intrigued. That colour! That perfect, mysterious shade of midnight blue. As dark as the night sky, as deep as the darkest secret. I was hooked. I wanted it. Except that Kleks is currently offered in BM style only. The BM style, in case you don’t know, is an unpadded balconette bra with stretch lace on the top section of the cups. If you are unfamiliar with the various styles, click HERE and read our blog post on this subject. I have a thing for S and SM style bras, but I don’t have a thing for BM style bras. So, I tried to just not look at the BM Kleks but oh that colour! As dark as my very heart! It was calling me. I needed it. So I did what any reasonable woman would do. I wrote to Kaska who takes care of emails at Ewa Michalak and I begged to have Kleks made as an S style ….and my wish was granted! Note: style change requests are at the sole discretion of Ewa Michalak, cost an additional 40 PLN and will make the item a final sale (not returnable).
You might notice that the stock picture of this bra in BM style shows bows on the shoulder straps and mine has only the bow at the gore. They are described on the site as ‘bows with bijou pendants just like stars in cloudy sky brighten this murky colour.’ I wanted those shoulder stars so I was a bit sad to see that they had not been included on my S Kleks, but beggars can’t always be choosers and when you deviate from the original, sometimes there can be changes. I will try to survive without my shoulder stars.
My custom S Kleks is in size 30GG. The cups fit me well and in typical fashion for S style in that size. The band measures approximately 25 inches unstretched and approximately 30 inches stretched without cup distortion and feels comfortable on my 27″ rib cage. I will say though that I can stretch it to 32 without much trouble although there was wire distortion present. Ladies who like their bands extra firm may want to take that into consideration.
If you read my blog posts regularly you will know that I am a sucker for a matching set. I only like full brief style panties and I really prefer elastic around the leg band. That style has been in short supply lately in the newest EM offerings but I have to admit that the appearance of these panties with the black tulle peeking out from beneath the blue lace is pretty much to die for. I ordered the Klek full briefs in my usual size 36. They fit well and I love this look, even though it isn’t my top style for comfort.
Here is the stock picture:
And here is a close-up of mine. See what I mean about that black tulle peeking out from under that navy lace? Just beautiful. ❤
Kleks is a welcome addition to my collection with its unexpected and unusual dark colour combination. I do adore it, even without all of its stars, and am looking forward to wearing it once the weather cools. (In hot weather, I prefer the cooler, unlined SM style bras).
At time of writing, Kleks is still available on the Ewa Michalak site as a BM style bra. The matching panties are currently available as well, offered in both full brief and thong styles. Have you made this pretty set part of your collection?
