First : this bra looks very very good. The black fabric is soft and good quality, not totally mat but not really shinny, the lace is fantastic : soft with embroidery (not the usual cheap lingerie lace), straps looks good too, cotton lining inside the cups with removal push-up pads. It looks way better than most of the bras in the same price range, and also better than all other bras from Ewa Michalak I already own (3d Mak, 3d czarus, pl toffik, strapless toffi).
About the fit, at first, I was a bit septical because I had a very pointy and projected shape (the one you can ...see in the picture), and because wires are the same as in the PL Toffik (70dd) that are a bit too narrow and too short for me, I have to re-adjust the bra during the day, and the feeling is not the most confortable even if it is really wearable (just not the best). But, wires are much more confortable in the 3d ! I think it is due to the appex of the cups that is a bit more far appart, lower, and closer to the chest than in the PL, so the bra have a shape more close to mine, and my breast stay in place very well and very confortably ! The very pointy shape turns out to something "pointy with the bottom round" after a few days of wear and/or a wear with heavier boobs because of PMS (so more weight to push the bottom of the cup in a rounder shape ? padding that become softer ?). The center gore is very narrow and low : perfection for my body (very close set shallow breasts, need for wide wires) ! But, if you need wide wires and are more wide set than me, I don't think this bra is a good idea, I am afraid you will end up with empty cup in the center and armpit fat, or worst, wires on the side of your breasts.
This bra is low cut and show a lot of breast, gives a "cute" cleavage but not a "killer cleavage". The top of the cups is more open than in the PL and the 3d Mak, but not as much as in the first version of the 3d (Czarus and Kokietka). I think it can works for someone even, or a bit full on top or bottom, but I am afraid some fit issue will appear for someone very full on top or on bottom.
Support is absolutely perfect for me, and I am quite active. Breasts can move up and down (because nothing stop them at the top) but I find the movement confortable, absolutely not annoying or painfull.
The only thing that is not perfect for me is the band : at first it was wearable but a bit too tight. After only 3 wears, some elastics are already broken near the hooks. I think it is because the band was too tight on me and "adapt" to my body. It is not a problem if you like your bands a bit loose like me, but if you prefer a tight band I am afraid this one will broke and strech out very quickly on you.
Really one of my favorite bras ! Read more 444 more words
This bra has outstanding space for center-full, close-set breasts. Sadly, it is not available in larger sizes. I've tried the PL cut that is available in larger sizes, but the gore is slightly taller and compresses my center tissue painfully. I'd really like Ewa Michalak to expand the 3D range. It is one of the few wired bras that can accommodate center-full, close-set, petite/short-waisted breasts effectively.
Initially, with straps and the band fully extended, I thought the cup was too narrow. My soft tissue kept slinking into the cup and under the outer wire after swoop and scoop. Then, I tightened the straps a bit and fastened the ...band one hook tighter. Oops. The cup is too small. I need between 10-11 inches of depth front and center. And, this cup has 9.3". With the band tightened one hook, the wire bites under my breasts and the bottom of the cup is empty. This is a grand bra for a slightly smaller breast.
This 65 band is 2" longer than a 70 band I recently purchased. Considering this is black fabric, I'm surprised it is longer. Eva Michalak manufacturing is plagued by inconsistent band lengths. If band length is important to you, please check the raw data here before purchasing. The band is, however, more supportive than other Ewa Michalak models I've tried. I sincerely appreciate supportive bands.
This is a beautiful black bra with splashes of lace and a bit of bling at the gore. The black lace is lined with a light beige fabric which enhances the appearance of the lace. It is tasteful and elegant.
This Ewa Michalak 3D, my second Szykuś, is a true 30 band, for which I am grateful. I have a lot of Ewa Michalak 3D bras. They mostly work well for me. Sometimes the bands are outrageously tight. About half of my 3Ds came far too tight for a 30 band. This kind of inconsistency is appalling.
The center gore of almost every plunge bra of every brand is too wide and too high. Unfortunately this is true of Ewa Michalak's 3D and PL bras. I put up with it because the shape is fabulous. The bras push my breasts front and center. From the side there's a ...lot of lift with only the slightest suggestion of a point at the apex. I look thinner viewed from the front because the chest area looks narrower. The cups in 3D and PL are low coverage, compared to most UK plunge bras. I'm full on top, but overall I'm quite petite. I fill out bras for full on top shapes, but I wish the cups were lower coverage. For example, I get great shape from half cup bras of every brand I've tried - Ewa Michalak, Panache, Freya, Fauve. However, my nipples, which neither point up or down but are centered, are rarely close to the upper edge of the cup. Half cup bras are supposed to be low coverage. On me they cover as much as balconettes. The exception to this is Agent Provocateur bras, which have their own issues. Read more 142 more words
The apex of this bra is way above my natural apex, and creates a funny look. It looks like I'm carrying a shop counter in front of my body, something you could place a glass of water on. I don't get this issue with my 70E - Ewa Michalak » 3d Porcelanka (380). My best guess would be that the Szykuś' fabric is a little more stiff (maybe because it's new and my Porcelanka isn't?), or perhaps that the cups run more projected. I don't get any gapping at the top though - in fact, it's cutting in. To be honest, I don't really get what's going on, so I can just describe what I see. The shape it creates is triangular from the side.
Anyway, if you ever buy this bra, it might take a few washing/wearing cycles to break it in, and get a more natural shape.
My sister was fitted at Bra Obsessed and is deliriously happy with her 3d Szykus.
Thanks to my dear sister, I think I may soon have an Ewa Michalak that fits. Although this is not the best size, with a bit more trial and error, I may own an Ewa Michalak that fits. This gore is low like the Natori Feathers, but the Ewa Michalak 3d cup accommodates significantly more projection than Feathers' shallow cups allow.
The 65DD Szhkus cup is .8" narrower than I thought I required. Finally, I understand wider wings were absolutely poking breast tissue under my arm. This narrow cup does not poke. In fact, I can wear a 5" wire width if the gore is low and narrow, and the cup has immediate and center projection. This is incredibly helpful information.
Hoping the 65F 3D I recently ordered will feel as comfortable as this 65DD.
Its lovely designed and well made bra. Even that is 1 size too big for me and was previously used, it can still make some nice cleavage. Material is skin friendly, has extra pads to regulate the asymmetries.
The gore is really narrow and I love that. I wish the straps were a bit thicker. The band is tight even for EM. I bought the bra was all black but under the lace there's beige mesh. I'm not really a fan of the beige but other than that it's a great bra!
Me: very soft tissue; Measurements: UB 68/72 cm (26.5/28.5"), Bust 87/92 (34/36.5")
At first I wasn't really sure about the 3D style for my breasts, but now that I've got my correct size, I really love this style. It gives a really lifted, centered, projected look. I actually have nice cleavage in this bra.
The band is snug in this style and I much prefer a 70 to a 65. The cups are smooth, brushed satin and there are included pads for asymmetry. It is saved from being a boring, basic black bra by the little details which make it sexy - black lace over nude mesh on the band and little bows and jewels. The straps are very stretchy but fully adjustable.
The shape looks really goofy at first! Pointy and hilarious. But after one day of wear, the cup moulds to your breast and the shape becomes round. It looks AMAZING under clothing.
The cup volume on this bra is correct for me, but I prefer a 70DD in this style to be fully comfortable. This band is just too tight for me to be happy.
At first, I wasn't really sure about the 3D style for my soft breasts, but it has since become one of my favorite styles. It really enhances what you've got by pushing the breasts in towards the center and up with very little east-west action.
It looks a little goofy from the profile at first (there is a weird point there), but that softens after a day of ...wear and the shape becomes round. It looks amazing under shirts.
The band is quite snug and the straps are stretchy but fully adjustable. It's almost a basic black bra, but little details make it more special - the lace around the cups is lovely and there is a little jewel and bows in the center and at the straps. The black material is soft and smooth. The wires are pretty strong for this style - not too much slack.
It has included pads for extra push-up or asymmetry but the photos have been taken without them.
Fantastic bra that I reordered in my correct size.
