Today I placed my first ever order with Ewa Michalak: the HM Gold, CH Onyx, and PL Onyks. This was only my second internet order for bras I can't try on before buying (my Panache Andorra was the first), so it is still a bit of a nerve-wrecking experience. Also, I completely guessed my size based on reviews and measurement ... comparisons here on Bratabase as well as the sizing table on the website -- I am ignoring the online calculator for the moment as I've read many a story as to how off it can be ... and as I am only beginning to figure out my size in general, I really am not sure what to expect -- I do not imagine I got my sizing right as I kind of 'averaged out' the differences and ordered all three models in the same size. I have of course read about sizing inconsistencies between the models, so this will really be an opportunity for a proper comparison. Apart from having the band size wrong -- I have seen about an equal number of accounts claiming one has to go with their UK size and ignore the European number as account claiming the opposite -- I am most worried about the cup and wire shape: the CH Onyx was listed as having measurements very similar to my Panache Andorra which, although I wasn't looking for a padded bra, is why I got intrigued to begin with. However, there seems to be consensus that Ewa Michalak bras generally have narrow wires, which makes me fear for my favourite, the HM Gold, in particular ... oh well, we'll see.
I only placed my order this morning and have so far -- 2.5 hours later -- received 6 (!) messages as to its status: a welcome message, 'e-mail added to newsletter' message, the actual order confirmation, confirmation of payment received, confirmation of order being processed, and confirmation of order being shipped. That WAS fast! With things on their way I must admit I'm getting quite excited -- fingers crossed SOMETHING will fit -- or at least point me in the right direction as to finding my fit.
