Currently I am low on “fun” funds and can’t buy new bras, so what do I do? Bury myself in useless tasks to occupy my bra brain! Haha!
When I win the lottery ☺, one of the things I want to do is buy every bra model in every style and every available size from Ewa Michalak. Wouldn’t it be ... awesome to have every single size variation for a full brand line, all measured by the same person so you have a consistency in variation added to our database? Well, it sounded good to me, so of course I opted to calculate just how many bras that would be…….
If I don’t include the ones I know are on their way out (less than 20 bra sizes listed as standard) the remaining models equal 147. Taking each style (CHP, HM, BM etc) and multiplying the total available models in each style by the maximum sizes available for that model (standard and custom sizes listed plus additional ones I know they will do but don’t advertize) then adding each of those together, the max total I get is 15463. This of course isn’t a 100% accurate number, as some models aren’t available in all the usual range for the style, etc, but it gives you a general idea of the total number of models/sizes that Ewa offers.
To enter them all, at a rate of 20 per day would take 773.15 days to enter or just over 2 years. Measurements, photos, reviews for additional information/detail specifics at 20 bras per day would be time consuming in and of itself, so I can’t imagine doing more than that every day…..
……take that 15463 and multiply that by the “average” bra price of $50 (realizing that several including custom sizes, FB, and the Babydolls are much higher but just a ballpark average for this purpose) and you get $773,150.00 for the bras……to get 1 each of every size available in every model/style Ewa has to offer would be three quarters of a million dollars. If we average that higher to $60 per bra (closer to what my size requires) then we’re looking at $927,780.00 or basically a million $.
Then if we add the 133 variations of panties multiplied by the average size range, you have a total of 1231 panty options, averaging $20 ea for a total of $24,620.00 to buy every panty model in every size available.
Add shipping (no idea how to guestimate this) and import fees (which will vary depending on how many bras/panties are shipped and filtered through customs on any given day) and I am sure it would be very close to a million dollars (or a lot more if factoring in the higher $60/bra figure) to accomplish this goal, haha. That is not even factoring in the PayPal payment requirement and associated fees (6% from Ewa and 4% from Paypal), or the removal of VAT 23% tax if shipped to a business address. How much would 1.5 tons of bra weight cost to ship? (Based on approx 11 pounds for 50 bras shipped (which would vary by size and padded vs unpadded) so 15,463 bras would be approx 3,401.86 pounds, plus panties, so round up estimation of 3,500 pounds or 1.5 tons) I would imagine the cost from Poland to the US would be substantial……
All I can say is how impressed I am with these figures, and the diversity that Ewa is offering us.
Within the models, you find anywhere from a 24 (50) band all the way up to a 60 (140) band, and cups from a AA up to a P (UK O) or 19 different band sizes and 23 different cup tiers. While this isn’t all inclusive of every style, it is a very impressive range available.
I realize this is seemingly useless information to most, but I know those of you who share in my love for the technical/statistical/mathematical/nerdy side of our bra life will appreciate this post!
