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.
