Me: very soft tissue; Measurements: UB 68/72 cm (26.5/28.5"), Bust 87/92 (34/36.5")
Band: Quite tight! I'm glad I sized up to a 70 because it barely stretches to 71 cm. Mesh is firm and the wings are high. I probably couldn't even fasten a 65, and I don't think a 75 would be out of line here. Definitely size up.
Cups: Runs small. Feels stiffer than the other 3D bras I own. This has the effect of really collecting and holding the breasts very securely - less bounce but still excellent cleavage. Cups run small and seem to ...be lower in height (which I like - more breast exposed). I normally pad my smaller breast, but I don't here (and it fits fine) and I get some quadboob on the larger side. I've ordered a larger cup size to see if it fits better.
I think the stiffer cups also change the shape a little bit - normally the 3D is quite pointy until it is worn bit but this one has a more subtle, rounded shape right out of the box.
Wires: Flexible, but not too much. Very comfortable.
Straps: stretchy and adjustable over the whole length.
Fabric: A true deep red covered with lace. Seams are covered in shiny black trim which lays flat under shirts. Maybe it is cliche but I really love a red and black color combination so it is already one of my favorites. It could be considered scratchy for people with sensitive skin.
Overall, I LOVE this bra. The matching briefs are nice, though the elastic is a little tight at the top and the ruffles make it somewhat bulky under tight clothing.
Although this bra isn't a perfect fit for me it is super comfy and one of my most worn bras. The band is true to size for a 30 instead of tight like many EMs and the cups run true to size. It also gives a very nice rounded but more natural shape.
Overall this is a great day to day bra (unless your shirt is white due to the colours!)
I wear this bra with 2 or 3 hooks extension because the band is very tight but I didn't want to have the trouble to exchange the bra to 70C. Even with a full extenter there is no problem with the straps, the bra fits exactly almost too small. The fastener has bad quality, it breaks up in the edges. The horizontal seam is quite visible under thin shirts but okay under my everyday wear. The straps are a little bit problematic in my left armpit wheee my usual problem is located but I do not mind. The shape is quite good for my FOB breasts, not as goog as in the MP cut but more rounded. Sometimes I put the bra back to the drawer for a while because I mislike the shape and when I grab it again I really like the shape.
This bra was one of three I ordered in different styles from Ewa Michalak - a PL, a 3D and a CHP, all in 65D. I used the calculator as a starting point for my size, which gave me 65DD (a sister size to the 28E I normally wear) but decided to size down a cup because using my leaning measurement normally overestimates.
In my case it seems that the calculator was accurate after all, as this bra was a cup size too small even without the removable pads. The cups are quite wide so I had a fair bit of empty space at the sides, while also quadboobing ...into the centre (not visible very well in the photographs, as the bulging was near the gore rather than at the top of the cups) - almost as if the cups were set too wide for me. The band is firm and does seem to run a bit tight for a 30 band, though I wonder how quickly it would stretch out since even after just trying it on a couple of times it seemed a bit looser. The cups are quite flat and shallow, I guess partly designed that way for cleavage.
I'm planning to try this style in a cup size up at some point - not totally sure whether the issues I had with this bra would be solved in a larger cup size, but EM bras are so pretty it's worth a try! Read more 136 more words
I love this bra!! The wires are wider than I need but the bra is firm enough to behave itself and not wrinkle or anything. The pads are also great, it fits nicely without them in but having them just gives a pleasant extra boost to my chest. Very similar in fit to the 3D Ivette I have in the same size. The center gore did dig in for the first week at the top, not sure why, but it doesn't bother me anymore.
I love this bra! It fits like a 28C, great for wide and shallow. The cups are fairly short, too. There are four columns of hooks, so it will last longer. Band runs about a size small, close to a 28. Initially the gore was digging in (I usually have problems with low gores), but bending them outward a little fixed the problem. The ladybug pattern is gorgeous and the matching undies are beautiful.
This is a pretty bra and very well made. It runs tight in the band, so I got a 65 (30") when I measure a 28" band. The cups fit well and have removable padding, which is nice because my breasts are quite different sizes. I removed the pad from one side and put it into the other and it's perfect. The underwire is one of the most comfortable I've had. Overall, love the bra.
