This bra tecnically fits perfectly!
The wirewidth is acually perfect (wich is very unusual for me!), the strap placement is great, the strappy thing above the cup is easy to adjust and feels comfortable, the cup is nicely low under the arm, the cup is very low covering, wich is hard to find for me, as I seem to have very short roots. So this is all just perfect!
BUT.. under my bigger boob the wire sits painfully on my rib :/ I'm not sure why and I hope it will go away with some wearing and washing!

This bra is not owned any more

    I think it is hurting because the cup is really a bit too small and the whole bra therefore is riding down on you. This bra is called a half cup but is designed to have more coverage than this. The side pics in particular show how the cup is really failing to contain enough of the breast mass to remain stable and not dig or hurt. I think it is really a shallower shape than what would perfectly fit your ultra projected anatomy, so to get a comfortable, workable fit you would be forced to size up. If you just want to use it as a boudoir bra, for photos or for a very brief period you could use those under-the-wire pads, I think they are called Pambra or something? But really I would recommend a less shallow shape cup or larger size if you love this shape.

  • Thx wendybien ! I was thinking of sending this back and exchanging it for a bigger size, but I am afraid there is gonna be gapping then :/ or what do you think?

    I think it's the opposite, actually. The bra is too projected for you. The CH is the most projected of all the Ewa Michalak shapes, and particularly, a lot of people had trouble with the CH Cherry, because it was even more projected than other CH.

    Are you wearing any cookies? I think that if you aren't, maybe you could go one cup size up, and stock some cookies in the cups, see how that turns out and if prevents gaping. I agree that normally this bra is of higher coverage, and it may look as the wires are too narrow (I could be wrong) and there is too much armpit exposed. However, in the end, comfort is the most important thing. I think that the fit doesn't look horrible by any stretch, so if you like it, I would stick to it. You could try the cup size up and decide between the two, and that would be my advice.

  • I think a size up will likely be too big, but if you pad it with cookies it might work well. The sizing on this bra has been a conundrum for a lot of people. It's a shame because this bra is what made me fall in love with EM. It was the most amazing bra fit (although way too small in the cup) I'd ever seen. You look like you're probably in between the 65E and 65F judging on how I've seen it look on myself and another user that tried multiple sizes for it. I should be getting mine it what I hope to be the correct size within the week. Good luck to you because this is such a gorgeous bra.

  • Veritas thx for your suggestions! I don't think it is too projected, it does slip out of my IMF on my bigger side (it's great on my smaller side)
    I am not wearing any cookies but I would have to on the smaller side. I think my bigger side is like 1/2 a size to big for this size, but I m afraid I would not get any cleavage in a bigger size anymore :/
    The thing is by the time the bigger bra is made I csn not exchange this one anymore :/

    @girl333 yes thats why I m afraid of getting anotherone made.. I am afraid it Will end up totslly differant :/
    Good luck with yours and fingers crossed it fits! :)

    If you want PetiteCollegiate has all 3 sizes up so you can see what I mean by my thinking you'll be inbetween sizes. I also have pictures up of myself in her 55FF that ran super large. I've had some tissue migration since taking them, so the quadding is much worse. I did have Jaimie email them to make me a 55G that fit as closely to a chp 55GG as possible. I'll get my bra Tuesday at the latest, so I'll let you know how it worked. I was like you with it though. It was the best fit ever, but too small. I wasn't sure if one cup or two cups up would solve the problem. Everyone that's tried it seems to find incredible inconsistency with it and the cup seems to run at least a little large. If I didn't love it so much I wouldn't be trying so desperately to make it work. Gee sorry for long rant. I have a lot to say about this bra!

    I also doubt it is too projected, I think it's the opposite. Projection is an allover thing, so although many EM cups are narrow compared to their depth, if the shape is too "blunt" i.e. rounding or flattening at the front of the cup many people will need more room there at the apex in order to get the whole boob into it properly.

    Also, I know Bratabase doesn't always offer a representative sample but if you look at the user photos, the ones who seem to have gotten the best fit are people whose upper pole is somewhat shallow (even if they are FOB overall).

    Given how tall the most projected part of your boobs is, I don't see how you would get any significant gaping by sizing up, especially if you use cookies on your smaller side. Also, a couple millimeters of gape in a foam cup is not a fit problem that would make a bra hard to wear, whereas a cup that's genuinely too small or shallow will be hard to wear comfortably and feel secure in.

    thank you wendybien for your suggestions! I decided earlier that day too keep it, as I found out that when I pull the cookie pocket under the underwire /between the wire and my boob, there is no pressure anymore and it is really comfortable this way! :)
    I wore it all night for drinks and dancing and did not have to adjust it once and I totally forgot about it! :) So I am really glad I finally made up my mind and kept it! :)

  • oh clever! So you basically found a way to use the cookie pocket as a wire pad?

  • Yes exactly! :)

    BronteBeach I'm glad you can make this work for you. Wait times for Ewa are torture! It looks like it fits you pretty well.
