This is another Ewa Michalak bra with an annoyingly tight band. Ewa's pulldown size options now use UK band sizes, so this 65 band was supposed to be equivalent to a 30 band. It measures 28" stretched! 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 about 30 bras I can wear without an extender. Most of my everyday bras are Ewa Michalak 3D bras. They don't have excessively tight bands. The 3D Satine forces me to reach for an extender.
Other than ...the band, Satine's fit is typical for 3D. The boobs are forward and center. The profile is projected, with a subtle peak. The 3D Satine's gore is just about short enough for me. The cups are low coverage. The clear, light beige color is pretty on its own and works as a nude for me. These features do not outweigh the discomfort caused by the absurdly tight band. I would've returned this bra, but it costs $20 US to ship a bra back to Poland.
I picked this up wanting to try the 3D style. I seem to fit well in a 65F at Ewa (in the S/SM anyway) but an E may be more suitable for me. The woman that owned this previously (she sold it to me NWT) said the cups ran very big and were probably closer to an E, so I got it. She was right, this is an E. I don't know if it was sewn incorrectly, mislabeled, or if this bra just runs large but it's a really great fit. The band is nice and tight. It's comfortable. Since it's a new bra, I use an extender, but ...I do not have to. The straps are comfortable and not overly stretchy. The wires are probably a tad on the wider side. They sit in my fold along the bottom, but there is a bit of space between my tissue and the wire on the side. Not a lot, not enough to be uncomfortable. Frankly I probably wouldn't even have noticed it if it weren't for the other Ewa models I have. Without the inserts, it is perfect. I fill the cups perfectly, the gore tacks beautifully, and it gives a nice lifted and rounded shape. With the inserts, holy mother of cleavage, and these are just asymmetry correcting inserts, not even push up pads, but wow, breast pillows all day! With them, I do get a bit of quadding but nothing noticeable under clothing except perhaps the tightest of tops. I do stay contained all day, no spillage through the center but I must say that I do prefer the higher gore of the S/SM models. I have soft tissue and wide set breasts and I just feel more comfortable with the higher ones. Perhaps I'd get used to the shorter gore with time and more wears. I just haven't worn a low gore since my days trapped in the matrix as a Victoria's Secret regular. I guess I'll find out, because I'm keeping this bra. It's nice that it does double duty for me as a nude basic and an enhancer. I do want to note that I have an Ewa S model in a 65F. I need the inserts in that otherwise I get a small bit of gaping. This 65DD without the inserts fits the same as the 65F with them. This is part of what makes me believe this bra is absolutely an E and not a DD. Looks wise it's pretty. It's not anything spectacular, but the beige is a nice tone that seems based on gold rather than yellow or pink. I like the little copper beads on the gore, and the lace overlay is really nice.

This bra is an awesome fit for me. I love the plunge - it actually comfortably accommodates my close-set breasts. It works great for my shallow tissue, and the removable pads are great for balancing unevenness. This bra is a treat to wear.
Unfortunately too small, despite the lack of much quadboob- the cups are very open. Band is wonderful, a true 26". I definitely recommend this for shallow, full on bottom, small busts. This bra also has narrow set straps.
By my measurements (and how it fits), 3D Satine runs about 1/2 cup size larger than the other 3Ds I've tried. Fortunately that works for me! It give my larger breast enough room to stay inside and yet is small enough that I don't need a pad for the smaller one. They also push my breasts together more and so I get a little better cleavage from the front.
It is also about a 1/2 size smaller in the band. I would like one more set of hooks to be fully comfortable in it.
Satine is sort ...of a shiny, peachy-yellow nude, but it is covered with lace so it tones down the shine and makes it elegant. Very lovely on my skin and also looks to be a very close match to my Bezyk underwear.
While I like this bra very much, I don't feel it is the same as the 3Ds that have the covered half-adjustable straps . . . the wires feel a little flimsier somehow and because the band is tighter, it is easy to distort them. With the very stretchy straps, I get some bounce when I walk and my breasts sit lower on my chest (so less cleavage from the side).
Overall, still a very nice bra. Read more 116 more words
This bra is in fantastic condition for being used. It's also much more beautiful in person than in any of the pictures. I normally avoid "boring" nudes (reds and yellows usually show up less under shirts anyway), but I wouldn't count the Satine as boring at all. It looks delicate and pretty while also being sturdy.
As far as the fit goes, it's too small for me at this point in my pregnancy. The cups and band are both too small for my current UK size of 30FF. I might be able to get away with it for a while with an extender and a shirt loose and thick enough to hide quadding. Even if not, I know I'll be this size again after the pregnancy. I look forward to actually trying my first 3d and will update the review when I do.
I loved this bra on photos and is really beautiful in person. The band is workable for me, even though it being a 70 and already used. The cups seem just slightly small when I put the bra on, but as I move around I have the feeling of boobs falling out. I'm guessing a 65F would do the trick for me in this style, but I'm not sure if I want cups to be this open at the top. It is freshly washed and going to listings. Has been used by previous owner, but still lots of life left in it.
This is one of the first Ewa M. bras I ordered when I was experimenting with sizing. It is one size too large for me. The cups are too tall and too wide for me. I wore it occasionally for a few months but it was never a great fit and not comfortable. It still looks nearly brand new and has not stretched much. The lace has a beautiful sheen to it, and I would say the color is a peachy beige. It comes with removable pads.
Best fitting bra with my current measurements. I've been wanting to try a 26 band, and this one a just a bit too snug on me, but I love the fit otherwise. The color looks amazing with my skin tone and seems to disappear under tight shirts enough for me. This seems to be a really good shape for me - no gaping in the top of the cup like I get with halfcup bras. Definitely recommended.
-- After breaking this one in (the band was very much too tight on me but stubbornly I continued to wear it and stretch it out) I still really like the fit, but can tell that wearing the band too tight has distorted the wires and causes wrinkling in the bottom of the cups. Stretched out band prevents the cups from gaping, which is what I seem to get with other bras. Cup size down quads, correct cup size gapes.
