Hasn't set fit
I finally got my first Ewa S - and its SO pretty! I love this turquoise color and the bright floral pattern. I dont think my cell phone does it justice. When I showed it to my husband his first response was "well, it sure is colorful."
I have been told that you should go up at least a cup size in the padded EMs compared to the unpadded. My BM 70HH is too small in the cups, and my SM 70J fits in the cups but is too small in the band, so I ordered this in a 75J. I looked at the reviews of the Edens from 2 years ago, and saw that the bands ran tight - but this year's Eden does NOT run tight. In the pictures you see me stretching out the band when it is on its loosest setting. I am wearing it on the 2nd row in all other pictures, which is fine - and makes me glad that the bra has 4 rows rather than 3. (or is that columns? I dont know!)
The bra comes with removeable pads. In the pictures you see, i have one pad in my smaller breast and none in my larger side. However, you can see quite clearly in the side view that I have 'bubbling' . . . not quite quadding, I think, but definitely some breast tissue bubbling up above the edge of the bra. However, because of the thickness of the bra I think, you can not see this at all under a shirt. I dont love it, but I think I can live with it.
You can also see from the above shot that my larger breast is not contained in the cups as well as the smaller one. If buy another S, it will probably be a 75JJ or a 70K, to see if that works any better for me.
The bra is very comfortable. I love the wide, stretchy straps - i actually have them adjusted pretty long, which makes me wonder if they would be too short for a taller person?
On one of the side shots you can see my 'shelf' effect - i feel like my breasts are coming straight out from just below my collar bone in an unattractive way. I think this happens with all bras that support me fully, though.
I have to say, my boobs look much bigger to me in this bra. This is why I generally avoid padded bras - even that little bit of padding makes me boobs look even more ridiculously huge to me.
I wont get rid of this bra because I love it, it is close enough to fitting, and they are completely out of material. Did I mention I love it? So pretty! But I do not think I've found my perfect EM S size.
