    Okay, seeing as I've just got this bra (I literally just picked it up) I'll probably add some more stuff later, once the shine wears off.

    Off the bat, I will say, I definitely understand what you all mean by the narrow wires. Do you see how it's not stretching all the way to my back? I am amazed. lol. The band seems firm enough, but it also feels like there's more room to stretch. It has a measurement of 22 inches not stretched and 29 inches stretched. I'm somewhere around a 28 (for reference) and it feels pretty comfortable to me.

    The gore tacks, but it doesn't press in ... painfully as some brands can do (I don't really feel it actually), and there's also some overlapping of the wires. I guess this contributes to it tacking fully, rather than just having one wire tack.

    The cup height also doesn't feel uncomfortable. What I will say however, is those straps! Initially when I put them on there were on the slackest setting, I drew them up slightly because (and this is one point of contention with the bra) it didn't feel as if it were holding me up? Like my breasts honestly felt they were see-sawing... That I think is my major gripe with the bra. I don't feel there's much support with this. My second issue are those darn straps. As I said before, i tightened them (juuuust) slightly, but then I had to angle them inwards because the were wide (I think wider than my Jasmine from Panache). Now generally, this is a thing I do with straps, but after angling them inwards they felt like there were cutting in :/

    Granted all in all, it's not a bad bra, and I'd say it fits ^_^. I could deal with the straps. I love the wires. It's just the support that's bugging me.

    Just a side mention .. I like that little charm at the gore. It's a cute touch.

    ---

    Just a note on the measurements I entered for the cup depth. Both the maximum and minimum cup depth were recorded. Maximum cup depth was measured by stretching the cup over the knee. This was recorded at 15.75 inches. The minimum cup depth was measured by hovering the cup between the knees and hanging the tape measure. This was recorded at 13 inches.

    • Welcone to the joys and frustrations of Ewa bras! I can say that the straps used to really bother me but after a few months I actually got used to them and now they aren't a bother. For additional support, try a middle hookset and see if that helps. Also, you'll get more lift in the cups when you can adjust the straps a bit more, but it may take some time to adjust to the wideset strap placement first. Once able to do that, the cups will feel more supportive. :-)

      MamaPagan, I can see that happening with the straps (it not being a bother after a while) because the material is pretty soft (so is that lace..I can't stop touching it).

      Ah yes, I'll try that with the band and once the straps feel a bit more comfortable I'll do that.

      Thanks!

    • 1

      You're welcome :-)

    • In my experience, the single layer EM bands do stretch out faster and more than double layered ones. Maybe it's just me though, I get really bothered by a loose band because I feel like it's not as supportive.

      As for the straps, they cut in and bother me the first time I wear the bra, but then I get used to it (and I think it softens up). After a wash or two the irritation completely goes away. I really really think it's the scallop-y edges on the bra where the actual discomfort comes from.

      That being said you are right that this bra doesn't look very supportive on you. Would you say you have firmer tissue rather than soft? Maybe the SF cut would suit you better?

    • And also, the half lace BMs do not have any lining. The full lace ones do and that might make a ton of difference when it comes to support!

    • 1

      brasaremean I think because I'm somewhere between a 28-29 back. The band doesn't bother me too much..but then we'll see after I wear it for a while and how it stretches. After taking on this bra and putting on my Jasmine it made the Jasmine feel really loose and uncomfortable.

      I can live with the straps but it's good to know they soften.

      I think I do have soft tissue (how do you tell though?), that's why I'm thinking of the SF. Thanks.

      Part of it could also be because of how the straps/band were adjusted. Everything was pretty much on the loosest level. I've since adjusted it and it seems to be a little better now, but I'm leaning towards trying the SF and seeing how that works.

      I'm pretty happy how this turned out though. There are a couple of fit issues I had before that got solved with this bra.

    • 1

      brasaremean double typing here.. didn't see your last comment. Ooh that works then also. So I can probably also try a full lace option.

      Thanks!

      The SF cups have a lot more structure, think Jasmine. However I will say that they feel like they have less immediate projection than the BMs (or Jasmine).
      Now I only tried one SF bra and I'm not even close in size to you so I'm useless with any information, however I know both MamaPagan and Sovavosi are about your size and they have some SFs reviewed (along with photos of the inside of the cup to show the structure).

      Overall I would say that SFs have more support than BMs but they also come with some different issues (for me).

      That's how it goes, every next bra gets you closer to that optimal (if not perfect) fit.

    • Since I already interjected on the BM vs SF post, I won't repeat myself here, haha.

      I do agree with brasaremean, though!

    • 1

      I don't notice the difference in support between the BM and SF because I have firm tissue. You can tell if your tissue is firm or not from how it behaves when you smoosh it... my boobs have the same shape regardless of what bra I put them in. They don't quad when a bra is too small, I just get a slight indentation.

      The S had the most support that I could feel, it's like boob lockdown... except that it's so shallow on the bottom. :(

    • 1

      Kk, hmm..so I think in my long term plans (I'll try the SF and one of the all over lace ones to see which one works best). Thanks brasaremean , MamaPagan.

      @Sovavosi , aah I see. Not sure if I'll be trying the S but having them under lockdown does have their own appeal. Lol. Thanks!

      I think it's safe to say I soft tissue then

    • You're welcome :-)

      And I second Sovavosi with the S style lockdown. It is a great period and ovulation bra.

    • Aaah I didn't even think about that! They're always very tender around that time and the least bit of bounce makes it hurt.

    • 1

      That's one of the wonderful things about this community. We can brainstorm and come up with some awesome ideas and theories! :-D

      Working together is a glorious thing.

    • Frazzleberry maybe this is dumb but tentatively, judging from how this bra fits the few other users in your exact size and how similar-cut bras fit others in closeish sizes, I find you are getting quite a bit more coverage than the design intends. Combined with the fact I see a tiny bit of wrinkling around the edges/underneath and the fact you say you don't feel secure, I wonder if this is not one cup volume too large for you. Maybe going down one cup would pose other problems, I'm not sure, but maybe worth considering? As I said last week sizing up in the cup can be a totally valid bra hack (and one I am rocking at this very second as I sit here in my overly-shallow-but-fits-comfortably-in-2-cups-over-my-usual-size Passionata Brooklyn :-D). But since you're having trouble with the strap placement and feeling unsupported, in this case a smaller cup volume could be worth a look, because those two problems are pretty typical of a too-large cup.

    • Any thoughts on the above MamaPagan ? I imagine based on your past comments that you've more often been thwarted by EM cups being too small or snug since you are at the outer edge of their size chart already, but in the styles where you've gotten a fit, you probably have a pretty good eye for how much coverage and support would indicate optimal volume.

    • wendybien that is a thought, but honestly (and I'm not one to generally overshoot cup sizes) I think if i went down a cup it may be too small :/, but then I'm not familiar with Ewa's sizing. I'll go look back at the measurements. I will say this though after adjusting the the straps (I adjusted the straps - it was really loose at the time- and the band) it wasn't that bad.

    • 1

      whenever my next bra adventure comes I'll put that down as one of my options, I guess that would be around a 65JJ... And I'll see which way is the best to go

      I'll be wearing it for the full day tomorrow, so I suppose any support issues should show itself then..

    • wendybien I do tend to get a good/great/sometimes perfect fit in Ewa's BM 60KK, and based on what Frazzleberry explained and what I see, I am confident the fit will be better for her with tightening the straps a bit and trying a tighter hookset, though I obviously can't guarantee a perfect fit as a result. :-D

      A few months back I was having major skin sensitivity issues and had to loosen all my straps completely as well as my bands. Instant no support, and wrinkling at the bottom of the cup similar to what she is experiencing. Half an inch tightened and the wrinkles disappear, a bit more with the band at a secure setting, and I get the lift you see on Ewa models, but I don't like my straps that tight. Add my permanent shoulder grooves that hold the straps in place and I don't need them tighter to keep them on my shoulders. Off topic, sorry.

      I have several BMs I tried in a 60K and 60KK, and while the 60Ks looked like they fit, the gore was way off my sternum. The 60KK BMs that I have that are a bit too small and cut in at the top are more due to the lace not having as much give and me having taller breast tissue than the stretch lace on those models can accommodate. I may try those models in a 60L at some point, but I am not sure it would help.

      Point being that while yes, she may be able to fit in a cup size down, the result may be no tack and less support as was with my experience.

      When trying Ewa bras (Polish bras in general) after UK ones, the strap placement does take some time to adjust to and we tend to wear the straps looser than we should as a result.

      Honestly, @Frazzleberry's breasts look bigger to me than mine do, so I'd be leery about suggesting a smaller cup than I wear. I do see validity in everything you said, but the bra measurements seem normal for this cup/band combo in comparison to my 60KKs, so I would be more apt to suggest like brasaremean did and say try the full lace BMs for for reinforcement and the SF style as well for added support.

      That doesn't mean Frazzleberry that you couldn't try a size down if it's available and returnable. Doing so for me (several times) helped put my mind at ease about size and fit, and the realization my breasts are too soft to create the rounded mounds in a smaller size, but quad instead.

    • Frazzleberry Sorry, I was typing a book worthy reply when your comment came in so I missed it until now.
      I can't wait to hear the update on support and comfort after tomorrow's wear! :-)

    • am I the only one who does not see any pictures?

    • No, but if you go to the photos of the size up there you will see some photos, it's the only set in this size

    • She chose not to link them dbmamaz, but as brasaremean stated, they are visible under the bra's main page.

      yes, this notification brought me to the page, looks good!

      I was browsing Ewa's site, as usual :-D, and I must say that even her models get that wrinkling on the base of the cup. Plus the BM is a fuller coverage bra so it is supposed to provide more coverage than her SM or plunge styles for example.
      Two perfect examples:

    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.

    • It's the beige one! When you mentioned Tulip, I assumed it would be Tulipan which is the black one.

      Do you find this one to be more comfortable than the full lace BMs? For me these half lace ones have been every time.

      It looks like a great fit, so woohoo! :-)

    • MamaPagan I haven't worn it much longer than a few minutes yet, but it felt really comfy! I'll wear it all day after I move that pesky elastic strap over, and get back with you. :)

    • I eagerly await an update :-)

      This was one of the first Ewa's I owned (but in 70J, I think) - I loved it and was so sad when I outgrew it

    Ahhhh, here it is. My precious.
    75F - Ewa Michalak » Bm Bibi Beżowa Perła (533) fit me well even when the band was loose and the wires really odd, and the cup too shallow. I still loved wearing that bra just cause it's soooo damn comfortable.
    70G is not any different.

    It fits about the same (if not better--more coverage, more space at the wire, more better). There is slight loose lace on top of my smaller side, but nothing to worry about.

    Per Kaska at EM, half-lace Bibis run smaller in the cup, about half a size. I don't think that applies to Bezova Perla, it feels as roomy as my Antonina, but it definitely does apply to 70G - Ewa Michalak » Bm Bibi Czarny Tulipan (521) which I will review next.

      In this size it definitely does! I had a 75F and it wasn't nearly as much coverage DarianaWheeland

      The half lace BMs are my bra bliss! It's wierd that Kaska told you they run a half cup smaller, since she told me they were just slightly smaller earlier this year. To me, it really jyst feels more like the upper lace is a bit more closed in but the cups fit/feel the same as the full lace BMs otherwise, definitely not a half or even a quarter cup difference in the ones I've tried. I think it may be dependent on the seamstress that's making them though, which is why we see subtle variations in fit throughout the BM (& other) lines maybe?
      Either way, as long as they are comfortable and fit, it's all the matters right? :-) They do look great on you!

      "The full lace BM bras have slightly deeper cups that the half lace BM bras (I actually don't know why...) but the difference is usually about half a size."

      Her exact words. Maybe at these regular size ranges it's like this, while it varies in at the end of the size spectrum.

    • 1

      I believed you, I just don't know why she would say different things, but you might be right about it being a standard size vs the custom size range. You'd figure they would be consistent. I wonder if the half a cup is based on what other customers have told her? That could be why you didn't experience it either on this one, as it varies by bra and person? I wonder if we will ever be able to figure the Ewa puzzle out, haha! Darn it, we will try though, won't we? :-D

    • 1

      Whenever there's human factor involved (such as seamstresses) there will be inconsistencies, at least I think that is the most obvious explanation.

      I agree, but I still like to think we can solve the puzzle and figure it all out, haha! I like my puzzles!!

    75F

    Fits

    This is a variation on the previous Ewa Michalak bra I ordered, 80E - Ewa Michalak » Bm Bibi Black (1000) , in a peachy nude colour.

    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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />).

    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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />.

    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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />. 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.

    • This was one of my first 2 ewas, and my first BM, and I adored it!

      Yes it is not only beautiful but also very supportive. I wonder if I'm imagining it being more supportive than the lacy BM or if that's a real thing.

    • I LOVE the half lace BMs-they are my bra bliss. They fit better than the full lace BMs(which don't tack),sand so supportive and comfy that I can almost forget I am wearing a bra. I do love the full lace BMs and the SFs, but these half lace BMs are pure bliss!

      Yes right! I'm wearing it rn and am not itching to take it off. It really is a lot of difference compared to the Bibi Black. Now I'm torn between ordering the black one like this, or SF Kicia!

      I have Tulipan (the black one) and it is bra perfection. Bianca (White one) & Fuksja (black with purple) are the same. You can't go wrong with them!

    • 2

      Oh wow, the lace on Fuksja is precious! So gorgeous

    • It really is! I think it's the same lace as on PL Dark Magenta. I am a total sucker for all things Purple. (And Green, & Blue......)

      Want some bright coloured ones as I've totally missed out on Absynt :( I'm surprised there's no more of these half-lace (didn't know that's what you call them) bras in different colours...
      I ordered Rubin, Blueberry, Fluo and Baklazan today... Trying really hard not to spend any more money, and reasoning with myself Porto and Baklazan are very similar anyway...

    • I am hoping for more as well. She had a gorgeous blue one last year that i missed out on, & there's a few others in the database from prior years, but it doesn't look like she does nearly as many as the full lace BMs. I have Scarlet on order , which only leaves this one for me to get. Hopefully Zenith will be one, though it may be a SF instead (along with a padded version or two.)

    • brasaremean check out Forever Yours Lingerie in Langley, BC. I saw that they had Absynt recently, though I have not checked sizes lately. The new Rubin is hot pink and black (and also my maiden/family name).

    • Calluna thank you for this. I will try to order it however it doesn't seem to be accepting my billing address at all since they don't ship to where I live. Sigh.

    • Maybe give them a call or email?

    75FF

    Fits

    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.

    Me: short & narrow roots, center full, close set, pendulous, petite, short waisted, low set, fairly even fullness, narrow shoulders, soft

    • Ewa's SF style is similar to the BM, but has the bottom of the cup reinforced with a stiffer lining to give more lift and support. It has the same upper stretch lace and is not padded. It might be what you are looking for. More rounded, less of the natural (matronly) look.

    • 1

      Thank you for the tip on the SF style, @ MamaPagan. I think that a firmer bottom cup would help a lot. Seems like my breasts are too heavy for the fabric and pushing the cup down at the wire. Maybe if my tissue was more firm, it would work better. I mean, this is very wearable, but still searching for perfection....

    • the SM is also firmer, sheer. but the stretchy ones are easier fits.

    • 2

      Just wanted to post an update. I decided to send this one back and try the SF Gładzioch (Gladys). I'll report back once it arrives. Appreciate the guidance I get here!

    Didn't fit

    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.

  7. 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.

      Looks pretty good! And it is a pretty beige bra. Glad this worked for you after all that waiting :)

    • 1

      Oh, and the wires seem to be more comfortable than my Panache wires, too! I dont find it 'amazingly round' as some people say - but its nice enough under a shirt

    • 2

      Looks great!

      Btw, the EM unpadded bras aren't really known for being "amazingly round" -- that's the magic of the padded bras. :)

    • Oh, thanks BumbleBean - i hadnt noticed that difference. I still cant imagine wearing a padded bra. I've gotten used to the idea that my breasts are actually somewhat more projected than round, but I hate to add ANY volume to them at all

    • That's a nice looking bra you look good in it.

    • thanks KateWild - but I outgrew it and sold it to someone else. I really did love it

    100GG

    Didn't fit

    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.

    70E

    Fits

    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.

      That looks lovely on you! I had my eye on this one as a nude but snatched up a Karmelki instead. Might have to revisit this one in the future.

    • 2

      Thanks! I would definitely recommend it for anyone with very pale skin.

    65H

    Hasn't set fit

    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.
