Used to fit
I got this bra to wear as a nude tee-shirt bra.
The design is pretty, but basic. The seams are visible through thin shirts, but the nude color is a pretty good match for my skin, so from that aspect, I still think it works nicely for sheer or light colored shirts. This material seems quite stretchy, so I'd say the band runs a bit loose-- comparable to Freya sizing.
It does look fairly nice on, and gives a good shape-- very rounded and up-front. The strap design is a positive for me: they are fully adjustable, but I can't adjust them with the straps on-- that's not really a negative to me, because the strap design (with a sort of embroidered/ stitched pattern on the top of the strap) keeps it from sliding around-- once you have it adjusted correctly, it does not loosen over time, and I never have to quickly fix it in the morning after washing because it slid around. That's a positive for me, even though it's difficult to get the straps adjusted initially.
I'd say the cups run true to Ewa size-- I need one cup size bigger than Freya, but the band is loose like Freya's (Ewa's band sizing is inconsistent, but generally I can make do with 65). These cups are not a good shape for my soft, close together breasts-- my breasts want to sit in the middle and are malleable, so I have a bit of quad-boob at the center, and empty areas at the sides-- not a good look. Conversely, I can tighten the straps a lot so this is less obvious, but then the straps will rub uncomfortably on my shoulders and will leave red marks over the entire area or rash-like bumps (they disappear within a few hours of taking the bra off, but it's still not ideal. I do have very sensitive skin, and it might be because I just have the straps adjusted too tightly to compensate, due to the non-ideal shape for my breasts).
The straps are a touch too wide for my shoulders, and all in all, I don't find this bra the most flattering for wear. It's just not a good fit for my body. I'll continue to keep it, but it's really a bra that I only wear when I need something that won't show under light shirts.
This bra is not owned any more
