I bought this from another user here. I had been wanting to try a 60 band from Ewa as well as a 3DM model after having such good luck with my 3D Satine. This was both of those things in one bra, why not? The previous owner warned that the band was tight, even for a 60, and boy was she right! It is toight like a tiger, this one is. I'm comfortably between band sizes in UK bras and can do with either a 28 or a 30. I'm still experimenting with Polish but I've acquired quite a few and I think I'm good with a 65. It ...really feels as though all of my 65s are really 29s which is ideal for me. Anyway, this was really too small in the band for me. I could fasten it, but It was painful and the wire distortion was out of this world. All lower projection was stretched across my ribs and not at the breast and it was horrible. Luckily I have extenders! I need one with this bra and I need the whole length of it. With the extender it's beautiful!
With the extender: The band is comfortably snug and everything is as it should be. The band itself is firm and doesn't have much stretch. The straps are comfortable and are an appropriate length. They are not ridiculously stretchy, thankfully. The cups fit really well. I'm near to quadding on my larger left side, and I may during my period, but right now it's fine. My smaller right side has a nearly perfect fit. I find the lace in the cups on this pretty stretchy and it seems to accommodate slight size differences well. They're also cut quite low, but do a great job of keeping everything in place. The shape is great. Front, center, and lifted just as any other EM soft cup I've tried. The gore is comfortable and low. I have soft tissue and I do not spill out of this. I'm really surprised, but that lower gore, which really doesn't do anything to be honest, seems to work all right for me. That said, I think I do prefer the higher gore on the S/SM models. They don't do a better job of containing me, I just feel more contained and therefore more comfortable. Though I will probably continue to buy the other models for myself if the price is right, I love any Ewa at this point. Read more 299 more words
The design of this appears to be similar to the PL and 3D style. It's a 3-part cup, but it's unpadded.
The wires are wide.
It's is comfortable to wear. However, it doesn't do much for me. The shape it gives is - say - very natural. Not nearly as pushed-up-and-together and rounded as in the Ewa Michalak PL/3D styles.
Also, the straps are very wide-set and I didn't feel I got much support from the construction - neither from the band, nor from the cups. The cups alternated between cutting in and gaping, depending on the posture of my shoulders.
One more word about the band: This was a big letdown. I ...have not experienced this in an EM bra before. I'm certainly not a friend of buy-EM-bras-according-to-your-inch-size, so I went with a 70(32)D instead of 30DD. It always fit me well (underbust: 28" tight/30" comfy). However, the 32 band in the Trefl felt much too loose! There were no evident signs of bad fit (the band did not ride up), I felt it didn't offer me any support. I'd probably need a 30 band in this particular style because its band runs so stretchy. Read more 81 more words
The fabric feels very soft and it seems to be a comfortable bra (I haven't really worn it yet), despite the fact that when I tried it on, the centre gore poked into my sternum. I'm not sure my measurements show this, but the wires are fairly wide for a bra this size. When I put it on and the band stretches, they become a good bit wider than those of a 30DD Cleo George. I don't get a perfectly round shape in this bra (as I do in Cleos or Fauve HCs). It's a bit pointy, but I like it. Apparently, the Trefl doesn't push my boobs forward as ...much as Ewa M. plunges do, either. I don't mind this, either, because even at my breast size, the PL's effect can be a bit much in everyday situations. The band is much more stretchy than older Ewa M. 70 bands (I only ever wore those bras with an extension). It stays in place when I close it in the widest setting, however. Aesthetically I'm not too pleased with the little rhinestone embellishment at the centre gore. I think it makes the bra look cheap. You can't take if off, however, without taking off the bow as well, so it's probably going to stay on. Read more 103 more words
I love this bra! Everyone who recommended Polish bras to me was 100% right. This works with my shape much better than anything else I've tried. The band is comfortably tight (for my 25 inch ribcage) and the cups allow for my projection and don't gape at the top. I might prefer if the wires were a tiny bit narrower and the cups were a tiny bit deeper. Once I bent the wires narrower the fit is even more improved. The gore pokes a little bit, but I have an incredibly bony sternum so that's to be expected. I love the way this bra looks. The black lace is classy and sexy. It doesn't show under clothes. This bra does minimize my breasts a bit and it gives a more natural shape. Overall, I might want a half cups size up, but this is still amazing.
This is a stunning bra. It runs snugger than other models (ie. the SM Summertime I bought in 60FF) but is still very comfortable for me. The straps are set a little wider than I'm used to, but that's okay. The only thing I'll have to get used to is the shape. For me, since I got one of the biggest sizes in the 3DM cut, it feels a little east-west for me, like the cups are just a touch too spread for my breasts. But that's my only qualm. The other thing is, this model is cut VERY low, and it's meant to be that way! It's not a high support bra, just for casual outfits or a date night where you won't be too active.
It's a very well constructed bra, especially for how little coverage it provides. Even a cup size too small, my boobs stayed separated and lifted and didn't fall out of the cups unless I bent over and jiggled after doing a few jumping jacks. That really impressed me. Sadly, it's just a tad small so it was cutting on the inner part of the cups.
The design is beautiful, a kind of modern geometric lace pattern with some bling at the gore. The material was soft and comfortable.
