My shape: full on bottom, soft tissue, narrow shoulders/roots. Appearance: Very well-constructed, shiny satin beige bra with stretchy lace top of the cups. I love the little pearl charm at the gore, but it could be an issue showing up under shirts. The fabric is really smooth and soft! This is perfect for hot summer days. I included pictures of me wearing it under a light blue tank top so you could see that it doesn't show up underneath light colored tops. (Except the strap where it sticks out. Not much I can do about that, hah!) Fit: I've had mostly successes with the BM styles, and this one is no ...different. It's the first half satin, half stretchy lace style I have tried, and it fits quite well. As always, I have issues with the fabric and strap digging into my armpit on one side, so I will probably move the elastic over so it isn't as bothersome. Overall, for a "plain" beige bra, this one is very nice! I ordered this one from Levana Bratique; she calls it the "Tulip" bra.It seriously only took two days to get here once I ordered it. I love that I can get Ewa bras so fast in the US. Read more 98 more words
I ordered this one in 75F. It fits beautifully, but the issue with Bibi Black I had was that the band stretched out very fast and now it rides up even on the tightest hooks. That being said, this one fits tighter than that on the loosest, but we shall see how it stretches out. I think I would not mind if it stretched out a little bit because then it'd cover me on those 'everything is too tight' days ...during my period. Also, in this review I will mostly compare it to the other Bibi I already have, because I have no other EM bras atm. For reference, my larger side is the one where the tag is.
The bra is... a beautiful peachy colour. My photos really don't do it justice. I wouldn't say it suits my skin tone as a nude that well but it's not too bright and it is pretty much invisible under a light coloured shirt. I didn't notice any extreme nipple showing through the bra either. There is a very cute pearl pendant over the bow at the gore. So fitting and not tacky at all!
The lace is soft and very stretchy, making it perfect for my asymmetry, and the cups are pretty sturdy. The horizontal seam where lace starts cuts is on my larger side a little bit, I expect this to stretch out a little as well, as it did on the Bibi Black. If not, that's okay as it's really not visible under clothing unless you know what to look for. The seams in general do show a little bit under very tight or thin shirts. I think I do prefer the solid lower part of the cup over the lacy one of the Bibi Black. It just feels more supportive (and makes me very happy ).
Wires are firm, narrow, but very comfortable for me. They follow my imf perfectly. I do expect some sliding down on my smaller side... it's just a necessary evil to fit my larger side I think.
The gore tacks perfectly, doesn't cut in to either side and is pretty much a golden standard for how all the gores ever should be if that was my decision .
The straps are honestly a little too wide set, but I'm used to it as it's the same as Bibi Black. The scallop-y edges of the straps are what bothers me personally, they rub against my skin and it can get pretty irritated, but again, this is what I experienced with the Bibi Black. After a while and a couple of washes it got better. The straps are a little short too. I did ask for them to be longer as I'm pretty low set, but idk if that change went through and I don't have my other bra to cross-reference right now. Unlike Bibi Black, I do not have strap gap with this one.
What I like about both my Bibis is that they give this... not-really-round-but-not-pointy-either shape. Breasts just look natural. Hopefully it is the same with all BM (and SF) bras as I'm about to make another order . I think this EM size might be the one, and it only took two tries!
Update: 3 weeks in, I have to fasten it on the third row of hooks. I do think Ewa bands run tight at first, however they also stretch out very fast. I suggest getting the equivalent of your UK band size in Ewa bands, at least in BM line. Read more 515 more words
Oh, where to begin! First, this is a new bra I ordered after trying this in a 70G I purchased through another user. It was a bit stretched out, but I liked it enough to try it brand new. Thank you to mandapandarawks who suggested Levana boutique. I ordered a new one there and as very pleased with the service and fast shipping. The 70G was sold out, so Judy suggested the sister size since the band runs tight anyway. It was an excellent suggestion. I compared the sizing for the stretched out 70G and the 75FF and they are remarkably similar. No regrets on ...that.
Bra arrived today and at first blush, it seems like an excellent fit. Wire and gore are quite narrow, nice low wings, straps stay on just fine. Projection is there. Color is nice and a good match for my skin tone. Pretty lace, you get it. Shows a little under a t-shirt, but nothing awful.
I do have a couple of things nagging me about this bra, however. First, I'm not 100% sure about the shape. I feel like it looked a little matronly under my top. Secondly, I'm getting a tiny bit of wrinkling in the bottom of the cup near the gore.
I kind of think maybe I'm in need of a little firmer cup fabric? Undecided if this is "the one" I suspect I could do better.

I bought this as well as a BM Naomi at the same time. I'm not sure which bra is the outlier for an Ewa bra. It is as if the Naomi is a size smaller than this bra I am full on bottom, short rooted and very center full with touching breasts in a bra which means little room for a gore. All gores taller than about 1 1/2 " are a problem for me. So having said that, this gore is about as good as it gets for me, barely presses on one breast and is not uncomfortable which means it ...is accommodating my center fullness pretty well. Immediate projection is good. Wire width is slightly too wide on me, about 5" is optimum for me. I have very slight wrinkling under my arm at the side of the cup only on my smaller breast. I think the band fits TTS. Stretchy lace on top is nice. I have very slightly wrinkling under it on my smaller side. Others have commented that they find the wires kind of hard on Ewa's BM's. I don't mind them. They feel a lot better than the Cleos. I've not tried on enough Ewas to be able to compare with her other styles. Definitely one of my best fits so far.
This is a lovely, simple, easy-to-fit beige bra. The fabric is very stretchy, making the band fit as I would expect from a 32. The cups have enough give to be flexible in sizing as well - I do think this bra is too small for my larger side, but the quadding is mellow and the cup manages to hold the breast well anyways.
While this is really 'just a beige bra' I do find it lovely - the sheer lace, the little center bow, all in all this bra makes me think I could feel happy and confident wearing this under a light colored top.
Of course the seams are slightly visible under a t-shirt (and that is a thick t-shirt), but nothing too distracting or loud.
Fit: Similar to Sculptresse Chi-chi Full Cup Bra (7695) but narrow and just as soft. The wires are so narrow. They rest on the edge or maybe just on my breast tissue, but they are a little flexible so they don't pinch. The shape is round but pushed out so my breast tissue isn't squished into a ball. The lace stretches and the base doesn't much. I have in cup quadding and probably one size up would fit best but they do not make that size in the BM. The gore is fairly low so the touching part of my breasts ...don't push it out much. My breasts do push the cup down at the bottom but instead of the wire coming out of my IMF, they hang slightly over the wire. I don't mind this as it is their natural shape and I still get plenty of lift. There is a slight feeling though that the wires are struggling to hold the weight up, especially when I don't sit up straight, and I feel the bra slightly collapsing. There are 4 rows of three hooks and eyes so the band is quite adjustable.
Comfort: Everything is very soft, from the lace on the top to the mesh of the band. Nothing digs or cuts in. This is probably my most comfortable bra.
Style: The lace is nice. It's a very acceptable beige bra. The color is just right for my skin, very light and shiny.
I almost kept this bra for my smaller days, but when I tried it on one last time when I slouched or bent over the wires at the sides of the cup would bend out with the weight of my breasts, causing them to jab me in my arm. I'm so sad other bra companies don't use these narrow wires for their larger sizes, besides, to some extent, Curvy Kate. Read more 221 more words
This is my first unlined EM bra, and I have to say I really like it! The band runs pretty tight for a 32, but as I'm in between 30 and 32 it works really well for me. I may wear it with an extender just to break it in, but it's not too bad. The cups fit like a dream and are very comfortable. Soft, satiny material with a very soft stretch lace on top, very forgiving for shape, IMO. The EM website said this cut was perfect for people with soft breasts, and I'd have to agree - mine seem very happy in this material. I ...don't think it's as full coverage as one might expect from this cut, and it feels nice and conservative without being matronly or too boring. I needed a good summer nude and this fits the bill perfectly.
The wings are high, but comfortable for me; they don't seem to cut into any pudge too badly. The wire channels are very close at the top, sort of overlapping at the gore, which I love, but I've pushed the wires down in their channels a bit just so they reach the ends up in the wings (things are more comfy for me this way, with my annoyingly prominent ToS). The gore tacks VERY firmly on me, so that may get bent a bit to make it more comfortable, but it's nice and low as well; I tend to get closer set towards the top, so any higher and it would be sitting on breast tissue.
Little bows as adornments, as usual, but there's a little pearl dangly charm at the gore as well. Nothing too fancy, but it's better than just a plain bow. Nothing else other than the scalloped edging and the lace, but I don't think it's too boring. The shiny fabric makes it feel more luxe than it would otherwise be, I think.
I'm still getting used to wearing wires after many years of ill-fitting Barely There bras and a stubborn belief that I was very flat-chested, so most of the time I'm still hyper aware of my bras (the tighter bands, the wires themselves, etc), and it's hard for me to forget I'm wearing one, but there were definitely times with this one that I could forget about it. I'd like to try the SM cut as well, but right now I'm very impressed with the BM even though I'm toward the bottom of the size range it comes in. Read more 310 more words
Beautiful "peaches and cream" nude color. Great for pale skin and for wearing under light colored fabrics. Material is soft to the body. Band doesn't offer as much stretch as @Ewa Michalak bras in black do. Perfect for narrow rooted breasts with projection. Would definitely repurchase but in size 60HH as the band is too big.
I bought this bra from Broad Lingerie in Toronto, ON. They do carry this style regularly, but normally starting from a higher band size. This size was a special order for someone else, and it didn't end up working out for them, so I lucked out! I had been wanting an unlined, "nude" bra for myself, and originally I was hesitant because of the stretch lace upper section, but it's actually quite unnoticeable under 98% of my shirts. The bra is made up of a shiny knit fabric for all the sections except the upper, which is made out of a floral stretch lace. The stretch lace is amazingly ...soft and conforms to any sort of size fluctuations. I think my breasts have recently been a little bigger than usual, so I'm almost on the cusp of having to size up for my polish bras (from 55G/60FF to 55GG/60G in the unlined styles, and up one more cup for the padded styles). I've actually been getting a little bit of in-cup quadding in this bra because of the difference in materials (the stiffer knit fabric vs. the stretch lace), but it hasn't bothered me too much yet. Hopefully I don't grow anymore or it would become a problem. The band has four columns of hooks, which is awesome, and I fluctuate between the first and third sets of hooks depending on whether it's been washed recently, whether I'm a little bloated from my period, etc. The gore tacks and is short and really comfy. The cups are really comfy and I don't know how the heck they do it but this bra gives me the most rounded, uplifted shape ever. The cups have really good apex depth and also pretty good immediate depth at the wire. The straps are set slightly wide, but I deal with it fine enough. It's not ideal, but it's also not a deal breaker for me. The straps don't bother my armpits at all. The straps are smooth and have average stretchiness (not like my crazy-stretchy SM Summertime straps...).
Overall, great bra, and great experience at Broad Lingerie! Read more 243 more words
I am evenly round in shape with a touch of FOB and I am fairly wide set - I have yet to encounter a gore too wide for me. I also have narrow shoulders, very soft tissue, and narrow roots.
I love this bra but the straps are just too wide set for my narrow shoulders. Plus, I'm between band sizes and this is the larger so it only fits on the tightest hooks. I love the materials, especially for the price. The straps are also as extended as far as possible and I am only 5'7". The lace covers my assymetry ...very well and the shape is very round with just a hint of pointiness. I tried the sister size down 65GG, but the wires were ever so slightly too narrow for me so I got poked. With soft tissue, this was agony. I had a 65H made for me, but the cups are too big - possibly alterable - and somehow the straps are wider than the 65GG. I will enter the 65H next with full measurements.
Alas, the quest goes on for a soft cup bra that fits and feels comfortable, yet gives a rounder shape and doesn't cover every inch of skin! Read more 110 more words
