I've had this bra for almost 2 years, only got around to reviewing it now!
Trying to follow alidieux' example to be a better contributor here and actually ADD to the database (:
Was super motivated to take measurements as well, but of course I can't find my measuring tape anywhere right now..
So, actually have to admit I haven't ... worn Zenith a lot - this was my first bra in Ewa's SF style, and I'm still not sure it's my friend.
In other Ewa styles I hover around size 70GG - I have an SM (70GG - Ewa Michalak » Sm Ja Wiem... (755) ), S (70H - Ewa Michalak » S Turkusowe Kwiaty (703) )
an SMn (70GG - Ewa Michalak » Smn W Sieci (1326) ) and PL (70GG - Ewa Michalak » Pl Kicia Szałowa ) which all work well for me, and a BM (70G - Ewa Michalak » Bm La Gloria (1173) ) in 70G that I do wear often, though it is a tad small.
This SF in 70GG has a bit of the Goldilocks complex for me - where I might prefer an inbetween size as it seems borderline too tall / large?
There's some wrinkling in the bottom cups, which I'm not sure is due to lack of projection / orange-in-a-glass or too-largeness. On my smaller side there's some excess fabric in the upper cup. Larger side does seem to fit properly. The 70G might have been sliiightly small, like my BM, but as I generally prefer that in bras; perhaps I should have sized down after all (like Ewa does advise in it's description).
While the stretch lace is forgiving and the general fit seems acceptable, the cups come up pretty high and the gore does poke my sternum (for the record, I am sensitive to higher gores, would not be an issue for everyone). Also as I've generally come to expect in (EM and most other) bras, the straps are too wide-set for me - after a day of wear they do irritate my armpit area.
I do very much like the design; I adore this particular color scheme of animal-meets-aqua/green/blue.
The general appearance and sturdy construction of Zenith makes me wish it fit me better / more comfortably!
The matching briefs do fit my 110cm / 43 inch hips/butt in a size M/40, but I could also have worn a 42/L.
As I don't reach for this bra regularly (think I've worn it about 6 times in 2 years?) I'm still contemplating whether to keep or sell this set...
Or to try and increase wearability & comfort by bending the gore outwards with pliers, as I've successfully done on other bras (like my 70H Ewa S Kwiaty) - and possibly move the straps inwards as well. Decisions, decisions (;
