Clothing Review: Urkye Mala Czerwona

Hey y’all! Exam week is over, and that means plenty of time to devote to blogging 🙂 My first post of the summer will be a review of the GORGEOUS Mala dress from Urkye! Urkye is a Polish company that makes clothing designed for boobs, so you can buy the size for your waist, and then indicate your bustiness, similar to Pepperberry, BiuBiu, or any other company designing clothes for boobs. Urkye has “bust levels” of o, oo, ooo, or o/oo, oo/ooo for stretchy clothing.

Under the dress I’m wearing my 28K PL Mak, because I figured Polish bras should be worn under Polish dresses. I tried it on with a British bra underneath, and it looked good then too, but I feel like the bust is cut for the projection of a Polish bra.

This was my first purchase from any full bust clothing company, and I have to say, I’m hooked! The dress is made of a stretchy material, and before buying it I probably would’ve said, “Why would I buy stretchy clothing cut for curves, when I can squeeze into the clothing at the mall?” but it really does make a difference! Mostly in that the armholes don’t stretch, and weird excess fabric doesn’t get bunched up at my waist! It’s really worth it, and I definitely will be buying more of my clothing, including stretchy casual things, from full bust companies.

My measurements at the time were 40″-28″-40″, which put me at sort of an awkward place on the Urkye charts. My waist was in between sizes 36 and 38, but my boobs were at the very very top end of the 38ooo. I decided that since it was a stretchy dress, I would size down to get a tight fit on the waist, and went with the 36oo/ooo. And I’m glad I did! Honestly, I could’ve taken a 34 in the waist, but then the hips and boobs would’ve been too small. If you’re thinking about sizing down in this dress, I would go for it. I also wouldn’t worry if your bust measurement is a bit off the charts, as mine were, and I still had plenty of room.

The dress was surprisingly flattering. I expected to need to wear shapewear with this every time I wore it, but in the pictures in this post, I am shapewear free, and as you can see it is surprisingly flattering for such a fitted garment!

Not the best picture of my posture or face in the world… oh well 😛

View from the back- very curve hugging, definitely not enough space in the butt to go down a size!

It’s a very versatile dress too. It could easily be sexy-ed up for a date by wearing a cleavage enhancing bra underneath, or made professional with a blazer and modest heels. It could even be layered with a turtleneck under it for colder weather or worn casually with sandals (once I hem it! 😛 )! There are a ton of options for this dress, which I love.

The one thing that I don’t love about this dress, but that I expected when I ordered it, is that it’s too long for me. I’m only 5’3″, and as such, longer dresses kind of make me look stumpy unless I’m wearing heels. But when do I wear heels in real life? Almost never. Really only when I’m going out dancing or on a fancy date, and for both of those occasions I’d still want a shorter dress. So I’m going to hem this dress, and this is what it looks like when it’s a length I like (more like mid thigh):

Shortened!

Shortened!

Shortening this dress does eliminate some of it’s versatility, because it would no longer be appropriate for an office or fancier setting, but for where I am in life right now and where I would wear this dress, this makes way more sense for my life! I would only be wearing this in casual settings, or settings where I’m playing up sex appeal, so shorter is better for both of those.

The best part of having something that is designed for busty women is that for once in my life my bra ISN’T SHOWING THROUGH THE ARMHOLES OF SOMETHING SLEEVELESS! Do you guys know how hard that is to come by?! I think you must, if you’re wearing a properly fitted bra and ever try to buy sleeveless clothing.

Overall, I am insanely pleased with this dress, and even after shipping from Poland it was a little less than $50, so not completely unreasonable for something that actually, you know, fits boobs.

  1. It looks awesome! I definitely think it makes sense to hem it for now and you can always order another one if you want it for more formal settings– it’s good to know you have a staple that could work if you need it 🙂

  2. Oh no, I had been thinking of ordering this for weeks and now I will just have to (and I just bought a bunch of bikinis and should really stop spending right now). It really IS a pretty and practical dress, isn’t it? Great review, very informative text and love the pics too!

  3. The dress looks super cute on you, both shortened and regular! Love that red color, especially. 🙂 I agree that you can definitely size down in the dress if you’re between sizes as this is what I did. My bust measurement put me more in the 40ooo range, but I took the gamble on the 38ooo and was very happy.

  4. You look awesome in Mala ❤
    Do you by any chance know how it compares in sizing to kieska? How tight is the fit and how deep is the neckline? I have kieska in 38ooo and it isn't really super tight on me.

    • Thank you! This is the only clothing from Urkye I have, so I can’t reaaaaally compare the fit, but the neckline can be modest or revealing, depending on what bra you’re wearing and what look you’re going for. In the pictures above I’m wearing a PL bra, but if I wore 2 bras or added pads to the PL then I would get a lot of cleavage! It’s maybe one hand from my collarbone? So not too low cut. If you wanted the dress to be super tight, then I would size down, possibly even 2 sizes, because I was in between sizes and went for the smaller of the two (and just prayed the bust would fit) and it still isn’t a very tight fit. I think it’s a flattering fit, but it’s much looser than what I expected it to be after sizing down!

      • Thank you for your answer 🙂
        Another question then…
        I have 2 inches more than you in overbust, do you think there’s room for that in the 36 ooo? 🙂

    • I think that another 2″ would fit in fine, because this isn’t very tight on me! It would probably lead to a more revealing fit, though. Not something that I’d be opposed to, but if they main place you would wear it would be a professional environment or something (as opposed to me, who’d be wearing it to parties), then you might want to err on the side of caution and size up. But if you’re okay with a little tightness, I think another 2 inches would fit!

      • This is useful information, thank you ❤ For this I will disclose some polish trivia 🙂 The ł in poland is pronounced like w, so the thing you're wearing is actually Mawa dress 🙂
