This is a really gorgeous bra that I got from Wendybien.
Lots of really nice detail even on the back of the band where it hooks.
I am narrow, short rooted with touching breasts and have a lot of center projection.
The gore is a little too wide and tall for me. The wires sit on both breasts. However they are softer and more padded than the cleo wires and so don't bother me as much. There seems to be enough immediate projection, but perhaps not enough center projection. (I'm not quite sure on that). The 2 Empreinte bras I've tried seem to be ... better on center projection, at least the gores on them come closer to tacking even when they are as tall as this gore.
The 8" high cup is a little too tall. I barely fill the upper half of the cup.
The straps do not fully adjust. Right now they are shortened all the way. I'm only 5'1" and short waisted . The portion of the strap that is not adjustable is very firm and that is nice. Makes the bra feel
very secure. I don't know if in time I might have to shorten the adjustable portion .
I think the band is small for a 30. It fits like a 30 Cleo, but smaller than a Freya 30 band.
The shape this bra gives is slightly more pointed than the round shape of a Cleo and also a little understated.
Lift isn't quite as good. Maybe the cup is a little big on me??

Found this bra for cheap so took a chance with it since I really need some nude bras. It is very short for a 30, it only stretches to 27.5 inches , so definitely size up. The band is very firm.
I normally wear a 28 , so it works okay for me.
Cup size seems to be pretty true. I normally wear 28GG or 30G.
Tops of the cup is stretch lace and cup height is only 6.75 inches which is great for my short roots.
Probably not great on tall roots or very full on top boobs.
Gore is taller than I like. With touching boobs, I have so little ... room for gore. Despite that, one wire does
tack, the other wire is slightly resting on breast tissue. I am very center full and this bra accommodates it quite
well. There is 1/2 inch elastic crisscrossed at the bottom of the gore on the reverse side, so it really grabs.
Straps adjust the entire length and are not too stretchy.
Shape is a natural understated look.
Not quite as up front and center as a Cleo. It looks quite smooth under a fitted red T-shirt. Might show more under a white or very light one.
Wires are pretty firm, close to Cleo.
I need a lot of immediate projection and this may be borderline since I do have some discomfort from the wires at the front. I don't have any orange in the glass issue though.
Wires are wide on me. I do better closer to 5"
Overall a nice, very sturdy bra with excellent lift for my heavy boobs. It is one of my better fitting ones. Still looking for the perfect fitting one though.

I bought this as well as a BM Naomi at the same time. I'm not sure which bra is the outlier for an Ewa bra.
It is as if the Naomi is a size smaller than this bra
I am full on bottom, short rooted and very center full with touching breasts in a bra which means little room for a gore. All gores taller than about 1 1/2 " are a problem for me.
So having said that, this gore is about as good as it gets for me, barely presses
on one breast and is not uncomfortable which means it ... is accommodating my center fullness pretty well.
Immediate projection is good. Wire width is slightly too wide on me, about 5" is optimum for me.
I have very slight wrinkling under my arm at the side of the cup only on my smaller breast.
I think the band fits TTS.
Stretchy lace on top is nice. I have very slightly wrinkling under it on my smaller side.
Others have commented that they find the wires kind of hard on Ewa's BM's.
I don't mind them. They feel a lot better than the Cleos. I've not tried on enough Ewas
to be able to compare with her other styles.
Definitely one of my best fits so far.

An absolutely gorgeous bra. Padding is not too heavy or stiff the way the EM Syrena is.
I have this bra out for a test run from Zathiya to try to decide if I need reduced cups and straps moved in.
I think I definitely need wires overlapped . With my touching boobs, the gore is always shifted to one breast
or the other.
This band is very short for a 60. I needed 1.5 inch in extender just to close it. My tight measurement is 26.5 and comfortable 27.5.
I have a small amount of gaping in my smaller breast .
What does everyone think? Would I do better in reduced cup and straps moved in?
This bra fits well under my arms, not too wide in the cup with the wrinkles that I've had with every UK size I've tried.

Bra fits like a balconette bra. Cup Height is 7" . This is too small on me and I have some quadding. I have been able to fit into others in this brand in an F cup, so for this brand I think this cup runs small. I'd compare it to a Cleo in cup size.
Cups are rather closed on top and probably wouldn't work on anyone full on top.
Immediate projection is good. Wires are very narrow at 4.875. I have no wrinkling in the outside of the cups under the arms the ... way I do in every other bra I've tried (except for one Anna Pardal plunge with a 5" wires).
So I guess any wire width over 5" is too much for me.
I don't think this bra is all that good for center projection, wires are sitting on breast tissue.
Perhaps in a 30 G, this would be corrected.
Straps are not fully adjustable. I'm short but there is still plenty of adjustment left so I don't think that would become
a problem .
I get really good lift, comparable to the Cleo lift . The shape is a fairly round shape.

This bra is a transfer from Wendybien. I knew it would be too big in the band since I normally wear a 28GG.
I will have to take in the band .
Another beautiful bra with gorgeous details. It is a light blush color and works well for me as a nude.
The cups are deep!!! and narrow . They really accommodate my very center full breasts well. Gore tacks pretty well considering I have touching breasts.
This is a full coverage bra, cups are a little taller than I like at 8", however they aren't wrinkling on top.
There is a ... very tiny bit of wrinkling at the apex that I think could go away when I get the band shortened.
It is a little hard to judge because I'm holding the back of the band to try to judge the fit.
The lift is good and gives an understated look in a t shirt. Seams really don't show.
Wires are very comfortable. I think this brand is rapidly going to become my favorite brand. I just wish
they weren't sooo expensive!!
I think most people would go down one or two cups in this bra because the cups are so deep.

I ordered this in the same size as my UK size(28GG). It is my first try with an unlined Comexim and it is a fail.
I have short roots, touching and center full breasts and I need a lot of immediate projection.
It is a full cup bra and I should have known that would be a problem for me. The cup is tall at 7 3/4 inches and I cannot fill the top.
The band is very stretchy . Fastening it in the loosest hook feels a little loose. I can fasten it comfortably in the innermost hook. If I was to ... order this again, I would go with a 55. The straps are also very stretchy.
This is a very light weight bra and I think it would be a dream to wear in the hot summer months.
I requested narrowed gore, overlapping wires and lowered gore by 1cm. Those alteration appear to have been done . The gore fit, while not perfect , is one of the better fits I've had. Gore tacks softly.
I do not have wrinkling in the side of the cup under the arms which I have in every bra I've ever tried , other than one Anna Pardal plunge.
Even though the depth is only 10.25 and I normally need 11" in a UK sized bra, somehow in these Polish bras, I don't seem to need as much depth.
Wires are 5 5/8 " so really not any narrower than my Cleo bras.
I will be listing this bra. I really think someone who normally wears a 30/65 would be fine in this bra because of how stretchy he band is.
- This bra's measurements have been altered
overlapping wires, narrow gore and 1cm reduced gore.

Short roots, functionally full on bottom , center full Gore is always a problem for me. Ideal gore height no more than 2 inches. I need a ton of immediate projection.
Initially I thought this might work . Wires were staying in my IMF( unusual for me) and center projection good so that I had no wires on either breast. The 5" wires are ideal for me.
But, after having it on a while, I experienced real discomfort under my arms and when I took it off I had
bright red marks where the top of the cup and where the strapswere attached to the cup was cutting into my underarms
The band runs small and is not that stretchy, so I sized up. In Cleos I wear a 28GG.
Shape is not quite as rounded as a Cleo. Pretty smooth under a darker t-shirt. On a lighter one, lace and seams visible.
My breast are dense and very heavy and this supported them well.
For reference, I sag in a Freya plunge.

I bought this at the same time I bought a BM Bibi Bezowa and this seems like it is a size smaller, especially in the band.
Band is very small for a 60. It feels comfortable on me with an 1 1/4 " extra with an extender.
I am short rooted, very center full with touching breasts in a bra and need a lot of immediate projection. My breast are very dense and heavy, so aren't overly maleable.
Gores are always a problem for me. Anything taller than about 1 1/2 " will press on one breast. This may be a function
of ... not have enough center projection. I'm just not quite sure on that.
Since the depth of this cup is a little smaller than the Bibi Bezowa, the gore is pressing slightly more on one side.
I'm definitely packed in a little tighter in this bra, but I'm not quad boobing at all. I don't think it is small enough to go one cup up. Wire width is good, I have no cup wrinkling at the side
I wonder since this is all lace (lined at the bottom) if it is cut a little smaller for support?
The brown is not as chocolate brown as it looks on my screen. It is more of a pink toned brown and the lace is a stretch lace on the upper cup. Cute little light beige polka dotted bow at the center.
So far I've tried Ewa's S, Sm, and 2 seam half cups . None were as good as this cut for me.
I don't find the wires as firm as Cleos. I know some people find them firmer than Ewa's other styles.
I can't really comment on that comparison since I've had so little experience with her other cuts.

My other try at this brand wasn't too bad although not perfect , so I thought I would try this since it was cheap.
This bra is nothing like the Charnos Betsy in 30G I've tried. It had a very firm band , firm wires and fit like a 28 Cleo in the band. That bra was sturdy. This is a more lightweight bra.
Band is very stretchy. I can fasten it in the first hook and it doesn't ride up. I also can fasten it in the last hook
and it isn't too tight. My comfortable under bust is 27.5", so I normally wear a 28 ... band. I can see that this might get too big after it is broken in. I believe it would be fine for people who normally wear a 30 band.
Straps are quite stretchy and my suspicion is that with a lot of wearing they may slip. The wires are quite narrow and cups are unusually deep (11.5") for this size. Center and immediate projection is very good.
The lace on the top of the cup is not stretchy and so it is loose on me much the way the Cleo Marcie is.
I think this bra would be good on someone more full on top than I am.
As usual the gore is an issue for me, too wide and too tall.I have touching breasts . Anything taller than 2.5 is always a problem . Wires are very comfortable, similar to Comexim wires.
