Used to fit
My measured size is 26FF/28F and I was a bit scared to order a bra with a 'G' in it, but I'm glad I took the risk! The fit on this is perfect for me.
Based on reviews, the band on the Cielus seemed to overall run average or even large so I ordered the 26, despite the fact that EM bras have a reputation for being small in the band. Mine stretches to exactly 26, so sub-28 banders rejoice!
I have relatively pale, yellow-toned skin and the colour seems to be a great match for my skintone. If you're like me, this is a superb nude option. If you are a bit dark or tanned I think the Toffik or Karmelki is a better match if you're concerned about that.
The cups pretty much fit perfect for me. I feel contained and I don't have any spillage at all. Even when I crouch and fling my arms around, the cups don't gape on me at all https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Despite the plunge cut, I don't have the problem of my breasts settling and falling into the middle so it is a great workhouse bra that will work under a variety of tops. The bra gives a projected look (not as much as the CHP) but the shape is actually kind of natural looking and not too round, so it seems more suited to casual wear in my opinion.
I'm... iffy about the straps honestly. It's not that they're great; they absolutely are. The ridged detail helps your straps stay in place all day and I suspect you would barely need to readjust them, ever. However... it is SO hard to readjust because of this fact! I takes a lot of force for me to change them. But luckily I probably don't have to readjust them often, so I think I'm just being nitpicky. It's not my favourite design, but it's not ugly and very functional indeed.
EDIT: The more I wear my EM bras, the more I appreciate the minor detailing and construction for them. Par example: the underwires. Many full-bust brand bras underwires are oftentimes PAINFUL to wear and dig in because they are so flat. But my Ewas all have curved underwires that fits the contour of your body so there is no digging in for me- even with a tight band. I don't need to size down in the band just to have comfy underwires and compromise on the support. Those with bony ribcages like me, rejoice! YAY for Ewa Michalak! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
