I saw this bra on Ewa Michalak's Facebook and immediately sent an email asking for it. I stupidly ordered it in a size too small, but other than that I love it so much! Since it's currently not available, I'm going to hold on to it despite being a smidge too small.
Pros: Gorgeous lace, big bows, firm band, removable cleavage straps, full adjustable regular straps.
Cons: Won't be 'nude' on everyone, too small (my fault), lace has loose threads all over.
This bra is so super cute! Who doesn't love cats? The print is nice and crisp and the bow on the gore matches it perfectly. I'm so glad I got my hands on this bra. Comexim narrowed the strap width for me.
Pros: Super soft fabric, cat print, awesome immediate depth, comfortable cups, narrow set straps, tts band, super comfortable
Cons: Way too expensive, customer service was just okay (I've been spoiled by Bra Obsessed)
I bought the thong as the matching coord and I'd say if you're between sizes size up.
I was so excited to see Dreams and Underthings had her Etsy up! I reached out to her to ask some questions before ordering in regards to sizing and alterations. The band runs true to size but the cups run small so size up if you're between sizes, and she shortens straps! I wasn't sure how short to go on the straps so I asked for them to be 1.5 inches shorter but I erred too far on the side of caution-I'm extremely short and always need short straps.
I'll have a full review on my blog, but here's the pros: Uk sizing-no more s/m/l. The band is true to ...size and very comfy. I don't think I'm built for midline/longline bras as it flips up but it's still super comfy. Cups-my breasts fit perfectly in the cups and don't slip down into the band to find more room. The gore doesn't tack but I expected that. My breasts are still separated and there's no quad if I push the gore down. Straps-thin but supportive. Construction-very nice and sturdy. Cups are lined and there is a lining in the front.
Cons: The cups are a little wide. Not the end of the world really, doesn't affect fit too much and they're out of my armpits but I would love to see a narrower cup. Maybe I can ask for that as an alteration?
All in all, this is a very comfortable and surprisingly supportive bralette for a very affordable price. I would love to see some quirky prints like food or animals and I plan on buying a shortlined one soon since I figure that'll be the best fit for me. Read more 167 more words
I was trying to space my reviews out but I failed. I just love this bra so much I thought I was going to burst if I didn't share it. Unfortunately for me, the band runs a size tight and I need two hooks on an extender to wear it. I know you aren't supposed to wear extenders when you post pictures here but I can't even fasten it without them. The pink strap bows have been swapped for white ones and those two things are pretty much the only negatives I have to say about this bra. Very bridal-vibey-I think it's all the pastel pink and white. ...The thong is also a winner. It's got a very wide band and looks very comfortable. The cups on this bra are narrow and deep and fit me perfectly. I wish the band ran true to size as that's the only flaw I can find in this bra and wearing an extender pushes the strap width to the limits of my comfort. It's absolutely lovely and I can't wait to wear it. As always, full review on my blog. Read more 79 more words
This bra took way too long to get to me, and as it turns out, the seller lived just a city over from where I normally reside! I probably would have gotten it last Monday if I wasn't at school. This bra isn't my favourite aesthetics wise-I would like it better without the lace. However, it's a CHP, cheap, and my size. At first I thought this bra felt cheap because of the materials on the cups and the thinness of the foam but the more I touch the fabric it feels more silky than slippery and the thinner foam still gives the same great support the Stalowka ...does with its heavy duty foam. Aside from the lace, this bra can do no wrong. The shape, to quote Josh from Drake and Josh is "spherical. SPHERICAL!" That was literally the first thing I thought of when I put it on. The straps are nice and plush, although others might think they're too wide-they are. Wires follow my root as perfectly as I'll get and don't harass my armpits and they touch at the very top.. The coverage is nice and low, providing me with some absolutely lovely cleavage. The band is firm: this is one thing I noticed that has remained constant in both my CHPs. Size up a band if you're closer to a true 30 than a 29 or 28. I'm going to wear this with an extender until I break it in. There are pockets for pads, but the seller didn't include any which is fine because the cups would have been too small. Another small gripe is the bow at the front is a little wonky and sometimes pokes up out of my lower cut shirt. I also figured out that those bulges are probably my tail of Spence and they don't really belong in the cup, not that they stay when I scoop them in. All in all a great bra at a great price, and unless someone has a CHP in a 65FF for trade and covets this one, I'll keep it. Read more 240 more words
I love this bra! I missed out on Ty Wiesz which would have been my first choice but only because I think the tan would be a little more flattering then the pink. It's so sexy in a classy way. It is made to the usual Ewa standards and both the bra and the brief fit perfectly.
Pros: Super gorgeous, great quality, comfortable, low gore, spaghetti straps are fully adjustable, straps are pulled in a little because of how they're done on the back, lots of bows and sparkles, and it lays relatively flat under clothes.
Cons: Seems shallower at the wire, straps are almost a smidge too long.
I'll be honest: I have no idea what the difference is between the CH and the CHP cuts. I googled it and I can tell something is different between the two I just can't put my fingers on it. I got it off of reddit I believe and it is in great condition. I was wary about how boring I thought it would be since it's "just a nude" but wow-Ewa has a way with bras. It's quite pretty in real life but not too distracting or decorated to not work under a lighter shirt. I love the buttons instead of bows. I can't figure out the ...wrinkles in the cup because I fill it pretty much perfectly. The immediate projection is pretty spot on for me as are the wires. The band is still comfortable snug and the straps are nice and thick and comfy. I get some amazing cleavage out of this, especially with the pads in. I have tall roots, so I almost never get cakes on a plate in a well fitting bra. The gore is low and non-stabby. The cups are nice and low cut as are the wings. No armpit harassment there. The shape is kind of wide from the front, projected from the side and very round. It's a very comfortable bra and pretty much disappears under my clothes. It's a perfect fit, perfect shape, and perfect nude. What more could I ask for? Read more 134 more words
I've loved the Summer Time ever since I first laid eyes on it, but I missed out on the lovely unlined style. I also missed out the first time Jaimie from Bra Obsessed was offering a limited run, and when she offered it one more time, I knew that it was no coincidence and I needed to get on it. I ordered this originally in an S style but Jaimie was totally cool when I changed my mind at the last minute and luckily had this last CHP in stock. Yay. It's absolutely gorgeous and I'm so glad I finally jumped on it. There are a few loose ...threads, but nothing major. The band doesn't have the checked fabric on it like other models did and the bow is different. The band is so silky soft and strong feeling and just luxurious. Band stretches to about 29.5 and is very comfy. The straps are a little stretchy and difficult to adjust but I'm glad they're a little thinner than my other CHP in the same size. This is the first CHP style with pads, and they're SO difficult to put it/take out. Not sure why the hole for them has to be on the inside and smaller than they are. That's my biggest complaint. It fits fine with the pads, the right, more difficult side, gaps a little without them but it's still wearable. The width is perfect and the wires aren't too long and don't poke. The wings don't peak out from lower cut shirts. Very nice immediate projection and a lovely shape. The lace is only attached to the cups at the seams and I can poke my finger between the lace and foam. The lace does show under tighter shirts but it's so pretty I don't mind. The colour is a nice complement to my olive skin and it almost looks like there's no foam at all.The shape is, as expected, very round, uplifted and perfect. I ordered the thong in a 40 but received the brief instead. I emailed Jaimie about it but the brief is very soft, pretty and true to size. I accidentally ordered a size too big but it runs tight I'd say. All in all, I love this bra sooo much and I'm so glad I finally got the chance to own a Summer Time. I'd still love to try the unlined style if I can ever get my hands on one.
Edit: I wore this bra out. I was so wrong. I don't know if it's my period or what but the wings/wires harass my poor armpits. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Nothing too major, just enough to be a little irritating. Won't stop me from wearing it though.
Edit: No further problems. No more armpit harassment, I assume it's from my period but since it hasn't happened since I'm not sure. Also, Jaimie has agreed to send me the thong and let me keep the brief since it was her mistake: she wrote down figi instead of stringi. I offered to send it back but she was very gracious and said that was not necessary. This is why I like working with Jaimie because her customer service is exemplary. Read more 431 more words
I've wanted this *exact* bra for ages now. I have the CHP style and I love it, but I had no idea I'd get a chance to have this one! I almost missed out. I'm glad I didn't, but this bra isn't as perfect as I had hoped. Aesthetically, it's gorgeous. I love the embroidery and the sheer cups with the crosshatch fabric. This bra is missing two bows on the straps so maybe if I motivate myself I'll replace them. It's second hand, worn but in pretty decent condition. The band is a smidge loose on me. It stretches to 30.5 and I prefer a snugger 29ish ...measurement but 30.5 isn't bad for pre-owned. I could hook it on the 2nd row but it's not that bad. Band is nice and supportive. The cups aren't too wide and fit my roots as perfectly as a bra will. I fill the cups almost perfectly with just a little sticking up of the embroidery on top. No biggy, it's not noticeable under clothes and it lays flat most of the time. The gore is very narrow-the wires overlap-and is a firm tack. The shape is so lovely: uplifted with a nice peak but not pointy. This would be my all time favourite bra ever if not for the stupid straps. They are ridiculously thin-less than half an inch wide- and stretchy. I have to have them as short as possible for them to work. Because of how thin and stretchy they are they tend to dig in and flip over and just be obnoxious. However, it's totally worth it for this bra. I've wanted it for so long, I'm not going to let some flimsy straps defeat me. Overall, this might be my new favourite summer bra. Read more 188 more words
