Very first impression - this could be a great thing!
Fit - I wear a 32 band in Panache but a 75 band in EM because sometimes they run tight - yeah, this runs tight. I can fasten this on the loosest hook, whereas most 75s I tighten right away on the 2nd hook, and soon on the 3rd. Definitely consider going up a band for this.
This is supposed to be a roomier cup - but not so much, for me? Well, my BMs occasionally quad a little on my bigger side, too - but this was a small day. I'm hoping it ... will stretch out a little - and I failed to try it with a shirt to see if the quadding is visible - but definitely there was a small amount of quadding on my bigger side.
Note - some pics are taken in the mirror and some are not, but the red tag is on my larger side in all pictures.
I did loosen the straps a bit to accommodate my slight quadding. Now, i'm short (5'2, almost) but my breasts are low-set . . these straps are almost all the way let out. Could be an issue for tall people who dont have very high-set breasts.
Fabric, as other reviewers mention, is definitely thicker and stiffer than, for example, the fabric in my BMs (which are all single-layer BMs). It feels coarser than my beloved Floris, possibly thicker. I do like a firm fabric. The stretchy fabric on the top portion of the cup is very light and sheer feeling - almost like tights? The cloth is doubled over so the top of the cup is basically a fold, which obviously can cut in a bit.
The buttons kinda freak me out - i want to unbutton them lol. But I suppose they are interesting!
Definitely high and round. Really curious how this will hold up over time.

I'm so happy that I finally got this bra! I loved the SF Szaron, with its muted tones, and hated the FB Myszerej, with its hot pink trim - but since they used the same base fabric, I asked for and was granted a custom FB with the Szaron styling. Because I've discovered that the FB is actually the most comfortable bra I've found.
Well, the first order was a fail - they sent me a standard Myszerej. So we did an exchange - they shipping first, actually! And now I have my nice, muted bra.
The band is a bit tight ... - hopefully it'll stretch out a little, eventually! The first FB I had was very lightly used, but I think it had been washed in the washing machine, which may be why the band was not so tight. Not that I'll do that!
Anyways, just like my last FB, the Tanya, these cups seem slightly big on me. There's a bit of loose fabric on my smaller size, even tho its stretch lace. But I'm thrilled to finally have a bra that stays in place - FB is the only one now. I adjust it less than any other bra I own. Which is why i've splurged to up my collection to three of them.
Anyways, very firm band, very firm lower cup - 2 fabrics but they are not actually attached, like i can pull them away from each other between the seams. The gray lace also has a white lining, but its stretchy. The straps again have the locking clips so the adjuster does not slide. The straps, as usual, have very little spare for me. I am only 5'2, but my breasts are very low set - my imf is at the bottom of my ribcage.
I suppose some ppl would think it boring, but you know, sometimes its nice to have something that can be worn under light colors without showing!

Isnt this the prettiest thing? I dont think of myself as being in to gold ribbon type things, but i LOVE this bra.
The Rokoko was only ever really available in the HP style, but apparently Ewa also made a few Ss. I got this on her in-stock clearance, and it was labeled with a pattern number, not as Rokoko, but i figured it out.
This is my first time going up this high in a cup. I had outgrown my 32K and 34JJ Ss and PL, and hoped this would work. It is definitely a touch big. I fill the cup except ... for the last bit of the upper edge of the cup - and this was with the cookies in. I might add another cookie, at least on the smaller side, or see if the cotton lining shrinks a little after washing. As you can see, its not particularly obvious under clothing. Well, the bad fit, I mean. The pattern, yes lol
I swear I took 2 more pictures - from above and in more natural light - but I guess my phone was playing tricks on me.
I really wonder if this is a bit big because its a one-off, or if the jump up in cup is a large jump, or if I've lost a little weight. I already bought a NWOT 75K from someone in the states, so maybe I'll have more insight in a week.
Final answer is its SOOOO pretty that I will keep it and wear it as long as I can handle! Its nice to have some bras that are slightly big so I dont have to panic about outgrowing all my bras.

I have been wanting this bra for a long time, and I'm so glad I finally got it!
The band is a bit big on me, but I bought the 75 because it was reduced price. The bra fits just like my Naomi, which is my easiest fit Ewa bra. The top black lace is stretchier than the Naomi and I dont think will provide much support or jiggle-reduction, but i'm not too worried.
There is some wrinkling - it seems like its caused by the lining not being as stretchy as the lace portion. I assume it will ease after a few wash and ... wears.
Obviously i didnt tighten up the straps, but I was just trying to get a few quick pictures. I showed my hubby briefly (he was barely awake) and he liked it - which was both good and groan-worthy. I'd shown him this when it came out and he said only if I really wanted it. I showed it last time it was on a clear-out-the-stock sale, and he again was not particularly excited. Now that he sees it on me, he really likes it lol
Very glad to have this!

When this bra came out, i thought the triangle of black lace looked weird on this bra, and I was not at all interested in it. I only bought it because I was buying the Why Not harness panties and wanted something to coordinate, and this was on sale in my size, so . . why not.
I was pleasantly surprised by this bra!
First of all, i understand now why the black lace looks out of place - they arent fully attached. They are attached along the bottom seam, and then there are straps from the top that you need to attach somewhere. I ... had my husband attach them on me, and he chose what he thought looked the best. I think it looks more symmetrical on me than on Ewa's models - maybe because i'm short? IDk. But definitely coordinates well in the back with the panty
The front of the bra has eyes at the bottom - the attached straps were able to connect nicely to the Why Not panty - ok, not hugely flattering on me, but my belly is definitely not my strong point.
Fit-wise, seems like a pretty standard SM - i admit I didnt take any pics myself, just cropped hubby's pics (hopefully enough)
The panties tho - yeah, I tried those on once by myself and i was glad - very complicated! Took me a while to figure out what went where! Hubby again helped me adjust the straps to look their best. We didnt play with the harness part so I cant say anything about that, but this outfit was a hit lol

PURPLE!!! Its so lovely! My camera did not do it justice, lovely lace, and the solid fabric is embossed with a floral pattern.
These cups seem slightly smaller than the beige one, and the band fits better.
FB is currently my most comfortable bra, best fit.

One of the 3 used bras I picked up on Facebook.
OMG I LOVE THIS BRA!! I'm SO excited that I got to try another European brand and . . . and it FITS me!!
Ok, This will also need to be on 2nd hook right away, but thats fine. This is slightly loose on the top - but that generally doesnt bother me. Otherwise it FITS! Great support, narrow wires, nice and deep! And I LOVE the color - not generally a huge yellow fan but i do love this very light lemony yellow and the sweet little embroidered flowers . .. LOVE this bra!! Totally makes this purchase worth it!

I'll have to update after i've worn it - it came in right before the holiday rush and I tried it on like a week ago and havent put it on since!
I do remember that the band is too big, already on . . . 2nd or 3rd hook? The first SF I got, 75 was the right band size, but it no longer is.
The cups fit well, I was happy about that.
Hubby commented that he really liked the color of this bra - and thats unusual for him to comment. It is a darker shade of wine/purple. really nice! Looking forward to wearing it!
oops, looks like i have to post from here even tho i didnt put the pics in yet - should be up pretty soon.

I have no idea why I waited so long to try the Tango. Just last week, someone on facebook mentioned that Tango fit bigger than Jasmine for them. I'm on the verge of out growing my 32JJ Jasmine and even my 32JJ Floris is getting small. So I found this on clearance on Amazon, with prime shipping and free returns (have you used an amazon locker for returns yet? So sweet! I have a locker about a mile from my house!)
Yes. Yes this DOES fit bigger than the jasmine. It looks like a much better shape for my full-all-over omega boobs. ... I mean, there's some wrinkling, and some gapping at the top, but we big girls cant be so picky. If there's no quadding and good support and no pain, its a win!
Sorta tempted to buy the "Heather Ombre" which is a dusty purple, but I think I'll wait and see if my weight drops. After all, I have a 75K S rokoko coming from Ewa and I'm in negotiations to buy a (probably) never-worn 75K S Mojito, so I should be ok for a bit.

So, this is the first time I've tried a Comexim. I was always curious, but what I'd seen of larger sizes did not really appeal to me - the shape looked more flat and wide than EM's in my size range. But when this showed up in about my size at a very reasonable price, i had to try it.
Fabric - a very interesting lace pattern. I dont think I've seen anything like it. Its not stretchy and its slightly itchy, hopefully that will wash out. The band is very stretchy. While it does stretch to about 34 inches, I ... only had it on the 2nd set of hooks, because its reasonably firm.
Wires are really quite narrow. I tried to take another picture showing where the wires are with my fingers, but really you can tell because the wires are where it changes from sheer lace to solid black. They dont go in to my arm pit and my boobs are visibly bulging out of them, meaning they create a good backstop for my boobs so they dont go trying to escape in to my armpits. BUT the wires are softer than I'm used to, so if I pull more armpit flab in, it doesnt really seem to stay.
Also I think the soft wires may be contributing to the odd shape mismatch in the front.
Size. I THINK it fits? At first it seemed huge, but then I tightened the straps a LOT. which could mean its supposed to fit like a half-cup and i'm wearing it pulled up like a not-half-cup? Or maybe the straps are really long? Of course, because of the placement, the strap buckle on my smaller side comes way up to my shoulder, which promises to be uncomfortable.
Shape. Shape is weird. I cant figure out what I think.
In the front, the shape looks completely different on the two sides of my body. The cup seems to come up much higher on my smaller boob, which sort of makes sense, except that thats not how my boobs fit in other bras. Even tho my boobs are always different sizes.
There is a weird flattened area on my bigger boob (not far from where the flattened area is when I wear my 70J - Ewa Michalak » Sm Fiolecik (642) - which makes me think my bigger boob has a flat area?) . . . but the bra makes my boobs look pretty crazy round under a shirt. Of course, often that amazing roundness is the first thing to go when fabrics stretch, but still.
The weirdest part of the fit is at the top of the cup near my armpit, on the smaller side. There is just a ton of extra fabric. I tried to take a picture of me pinching that extra fabric, but I didnt realize the picture didnt take until I was already changed. But I DO have a picture where I dropped a little tub of lip balm in to the extra fabric. It looks kinda like its digging in to my boob, but its not. Its just hanging out in this pocket of extra fabric. There's also a side picture where you can see how much wrinkling there is in that same part of the bra.
So, what do I think? I have no idea. Advice? Comments?
