Avocado Essentia NF 65E

So… As you will see shortly, this bra is added on to my list of Polish (European) bras that don’t fit.


The NF style is mentioned as being: “Shape NF (Natural Firm) for natural uplifted shape: breasts gathered from the sides and uplifted. horizontal cup seam curved near the bridge for extra depth, closed cup edge (cage-cup)”

The band

The band feels firm, but also feels like it’s riding up. Unstretched its 23.5 inches ( cm), and stretched its 29.5 inches (cm). My comfortable underbust measurement is 28.5 inches (72.39 cm). So it’s about an inch bigger than what I need. The band is a different material from the rest of the bra. It’s thicker (I don’t believe it was 2 pieces of fabric, but I didn’t check before I sent the bra back)


The cups

The cups remind me of Freya cups. They’re closed on top, but there was wrinkling at the seam, so I wouldn’t be able to size down in this bra. The sides of the cup come up rather high. There is also some space between my breast and the wire, as well as space near the sides of the cup. Oddly enough the bra feels like it’s too wide, but it only measures 5 inches (12.7 cm) wide.

This bra won’t work on FOT (without some cutting in), and it won’t work on FOB because theres no depth at the wire. I’m thinking it could probably work on shallow breasts, or maybe for even breasts.

The straps

The straps feel very stretchy, and it almsot makes them feel like they’re to tight. But I am able to wear the bra with the straps adjusted a good amount. If I adjust the straps at the loosest, there’s a lot of wrinkling in the cup.  The straps are also fully adjustable.

The gore

The gore is very high on me, and it pokes. It definitely feels pokey even being worn for a short amount of time.

I don’t have additional pictures of the bra because I initially wasn’t planning on returning the bra. I thought to myself “I’ll just keep it because it’s an ‘okay’ bra” but then I remembered that I paid $40 for each bra and realized if I paid that much for an “okay” bra from Amazon, I’d return it without a second thought. I did debate on whether or not to sell the bra, but I don’t think anyone would buy such a ‘basic’ bra for $40. A lot of the Avocado bras I see on bratabase are a lot more fancy, and they’re selling for around $30-$40. Plus with how Ill-fitting the bra is on me, I can see this bra not being sold for a while.
