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 !
