This is another Ewa Michalak bra that has an annoyingly tight band. It is under 28" stretched, without distorting the cups. I wish this company's 65 bands would be consistently tight, consistently true to size, like my preferred 30" stretched, or consistently anything. I could wear an extender, but I shouldn't have to. I have enough bras I can wear without an extender that I don't reach for overly tight bras like the M Syrena.
Other problems with this bra stem from the cut itself. The M cut was marketed as bringing the breasts even more front and center than her 3D or PL bras. I suppose this is true for me. However, the fit is otherwise subpar. I altered the straps to be closer together in front. They still don't feel as comfortable as those of my dozen or so 3Ds or my two PLs. If I look at the back view, the straps veer outward, toward the sides of my body, rather than going straight down or drawing closer together where the hooks and eyes are. If I wore an extender with the M Syrena, this would make the straps widen even more in back.
Another feature I dislike in the M cut is the low wings. I want higher wings in Ewa Michalak bras, not lower. I would be happy if all my 3Ds had an inch or two extra height in the wings. I think my PLs are a little better for me in this regard.
I do admire the M Syrena's looks. The blue and green coloring evokes mermaids and peacocks. The gore is just about short enough for me. The cups are, as promised, low-coverage. I welcome these features. They do not, however, outweigh the discomfort and suboptimal appearance caused by the M cut's differences from 3D and PL. I would've returned this bra, but it costs $20 US to ship a bra back to Poland.
