Onto the next review! I had the chance to wear this bra for a solid 10 hours at home yesterday, which included cleaning up, washing dishes, and also laying on the couch for an extended period of time lol.

Once again, these are mostly first impressions. I've never owned or even tried an SF before this, so I was not expecting how thick the lower three panels would be! They are quite stiff. The upper panel of the folded mesh is comfy and accommodating, but I do find that the edge of the lower sections kind of protrudes a little at the horizontal seam, which is causing the slightly pointed appearance. It wasn't super obvious under the shirt I was wearing yesterday (a thick black cotton tshirt), but it may be more obvious under the typically light-coloured summer tops that I plan to wear this under the most.

My most important takeaway of this bra is that it has less immediate projection at the wire than the BM style, and this is the first bra (ever) that I've gotten such significant wrinkling and folding at the wire. I think the stiffened lower cup actually exacerbates the problem. That being said, it was not uncomfortable for me, and I didn't feel like I was getting any additional pressure or compression in the bottom of the cup because of it. This is more of an aesthetic issue than anything else for me. However, if that is a make-or-break fit issue for you, I would be wary of the SF style.

The band on this is also quite firm. It relaxed a bit throughout the day thankfully, but it's nice to have a band that runs on the smaller side rather than the larger side. I may remeasure after it is completely broken in, because when I first measured the stretched band length two days ago, I was shocked to see that it stretched to less than 26". This is probably a product of the fact that this is supposedly the smallest cup volume Ewa will make in a 60 band, compared to MamaPagan, Sovavosi, and many others who require a true 60 band but haven't been getting it because of their larger cup volumes.

In terms of appearance, I like the more nutty beige colour, which is darker than my own skin tone, but still blends well under clothing. It does look pretty velvety to me in real life, and I don't get much of that shiny flashback. Overall, it was very comfortable for me, and I'm sure I'll be getting plenty of use out of it!

    I experienced a lot of the same issues (esp wrinking at the wire) as you did with the single SF I got.
    By the end of the day, if I didn't quickly readjust and scoop&swoop, the cups would totally collapse on me.

    It is beautiful, and looks really good on you. I hadn't thought about it but yes, the stiff fabric probably does exacerbate the wrinkling. Looking at my notes, the SF does on average have a shorter band than the BM, probably again due to the stiffer fabric. It's good that you pointed that out, I wouldn't have thought to look otherwise. 😀

    It's a beautiful nude bra and looks great on you...your wrinkling at the wire(due to lack of projection right at it) is my plague also and the reason I've been avoiding this style. Maybe as the fabric in the lower cup wears and the stiffness disappipates it will allow the breast to sink in and the wrinkles will go away? I'd be interested to know.

    AprilGoulding I don't think it does very much. I have some smaller ones that I wore quite a bit and the wrinkle was always there. They were also softer than this model. It's just endemic to the style.

    I also get wrinkles in the bottom of the SF.

    It's worth noting that Ewa's models do as well. Looking at the stock photos of Princessa specifically, they all wrinkle at the wire.

    I think it's an SF issue rather than our issue.

    Well then. I guess we know what style I wont be buying;)

    Well it looks great on you. Too bad about the minor fit issues, but I hope it still gets lots of wear. Is the bottom lined then? Like thinly padded?

  • 5

    SFs are not padded. But the mesh is very rigid and structured.

  • 1

    Looks great on you! I guess the mesh collapses at the bottom because it comes up so high in the center and doesn't get pulled up by the straps.

    I accept the bottom of the cup wrinkling as a unique feature of the style, haha. If I tighten the straps, I can get rid of the wrinkle, but the trade off is usually quadding and strap pain, so I wear those wrinkles proudly. :-D

    It looks good on you!

    Thank you for the kind words everyone :) I'm so happy this review is helping others decide whether this style would work for them or not!

    Beautiful bra but I can see the issues and frustration.
