    Why must Gores be the Bain of my bra-existance?! By all logical accounts, this should be the best gore. Its close/touching/overlapping and its Super Short! While I've got barely any volume left, I'm very close set, and if I had more they'd be very center-full. I guess I'm center deflated?? Anyway. Not sure what I can do as I love love loveeee this bra and don't want to let it go. A friend recently told me I have ribs that are dented/flared/something like that. Maybe that's part of my problem? I've been at this for years and comexim is my main squeeze and I have bras that both fit and are comfy. I can't complain. My body has changed so much and its like I'm on round 2 of finding my size. I know many women who have large busts and are so uncomfortable trying to find a bra that fits, nevermind comfortable so I know I shouldn't complain.

      I have a rib flare too and gores often poke me. Wearing a band size larger or using an extender helps, but then the band starts riding up :S. Bending the wires to better fit my ribcage also helps

    • This journey can be exasperating. Such a beauty on you!

    This bra is a little loose on the looses hook but has plenty of life left! It is a beautiful bra and solidifies my idea that 65E is my ideal size in this brand! I wish they made those... This style is a little bit shallow but really puts me front and center, which I really like!

    The cups are a little too large for me, or maybe just too tall. The bottom of the cups fit my breasts well, but the top of the cups has some empty space. The apex is about 0.5 inch too tall. I'm not sure how much the tall cups contributed to the fit problems or whether sizing down one cup would help, because 65D will likely be too shallow on the bottom. I probably will wait till I gain a little more weight and see if it will work better. But if the cups get any taller I would have to say goodbye to EM.

    EDIT: Tried it on again today and found that the empty space wasn't that bad. There is no gaping; it is more like the apex is slightly empty because it does not align with my breast shape.

  4. I love this bra! It's low-coverage (more or less), very comfy and gives a great centered and rounded shape.
    The band is slightly tighter than the Ewa Michalak 3d Porcelanka (380), but not enough to go up a band size.

    For reference: My underbust measurements are 27" tight, 29" comfy and I'm wearing a 30E in UK brands.

  5. I ordered the 65F (30F in UK sizing) Ewa Michalak 3D Szafirek hoping it would have low coverage cups as do most of the 3Ds I've tried. It does! EM's 3Ds typically combine super low gores and minimal coverage cups that suit my petite frame and close-set breasts. Even among plunge bras, a 1.5" center gore is unusually low.

    The bright navy lace is lovely. EM includes removable pads for asymmetry. Since my boobs are fairly symmetrical, and the cups are the right size without the pads, I'll wear the Szafirek without the removable pads.

    I officially have a bra addiction! I've always been curious about Ewa Michalak bras as they are so revered in the bra-fitting community, but I've been reluctant to deal with the shipping from Poland, weird processing fees, etc., plus my size is widely available from UK manufacturers. Also, my favorite models (Lato, Miedziak, etc.) always sell out in my size once I fall in love with them! When I saw the new Szafirek on sale, I decided I had to try it.

    My package arrived on the exact date the website predicted (I'm in the midwest US) and I am really pleased. The bra is even more beautiful in ... person and feels very high-quality. The cups are stiff, providing a lovely shape, and are lined with very comfortable soft cotton. The straps are fully adjustable and stiff to adjust; they will not slide around!

    My only issue with the bra is the band. I was surprised to see that it only stretches to 71cm before the wires distort because the band feels so stretchy -- I already prefer it on the tightest hooks. My ribcage measurement fluctuates but I'm generally 66cm snug and 62-63cm tight, which puts me on the 60/65 line for EM bras. I'm just surprised because many firm 30 bands (e.g. Cleo) are fine on me. I think this bra might be a better fit in a 60DD or 60E -- this cup volume fits me by British standards, but I do wonder how it would look with a little less coverage, more Polish style :)
