    Fits

    I have been wanting this bra for a long time, and I'm so glad I finally got it!

    The band is a bit big on me, but I bought the 75 because it was reduced price. The bra fits just like my Naomi, which is my easiest fit Ewa bra. The top black lace is stretchier than the Naomi and I dont think will provide much support or jiggle-reduction, but i'm not too worried.

    There is some wrinkling - it seems like its caused by the lining not being as stretchy as the lace portion. I assume it will ease after a few wash and ... wears.

    Obviously i didnt tighten up the straps, but I was just trying to get a few quick pictures. I showed my hubby briefly (he was barely awake) and he liked it - which was both good and groan-worthy. I'd shown him this when it came out and he said only if I really wanted it. I showed it last time it was on a clear-out-the-stock sale, and he again was not particularly excited. Now that he sees it on me, he really likes it lol

    Very glad to have this!

  2. Knowing Bibi Black runs a little roomy in the cup (and stretches out in the cup too!), I purchased it in 70FF.
    Size wise, it's somewhere between my 70FFs and Antonina, really neither here nor there.

    Honestly I am satisfied with the way this one fits except for one thing. The shape I get is a lot pointier than what I got in 80E - Ewa Michalak » Bm Bibi Black (1000) . I'm not sure why exactly but I will say that I am over hating the pointy shape. It's just how it is. It also doesn't look awful under a shirt so all's good.

    The cups are ... your regular three part cups with the top being stretchy lace. The lace on Bibis is very sturdy, but VERY stretchy and I think these bras are really the best out there for cyclical changes! The lace just adapts so well, but without bubbling (too much at least). The cups on these are also a little sturdier than some of my other BMs.

    The band is snug but in my experience, the single layer bands stretch out after a couple of wears, so we will see what happens. My 80E seems to have flimsier mesh than my 70FF, so maybe they changed materials? Not sure. I noticed the same with my Bibi Bezova Perlas but it could just be I don't remember so well how the bra was out of the package.

    The gore on Bibi Black is what sold me on EM bras and as usual, it tacks perfectly, doesn't bother me at all. The wires are very comfy in general.

    I probably wouldn't have purchased Bibi Black again if not for Black Friday sale. I think it's a very elegant black bra, it's not boring because the lace gives it that oomph that I find so many black/nude bras miss.
    Bibi Black comes with the little straps you can attach to convert it to a strappy bra. I will say that I don't like even trying on these straps because (even after careful placement to avoid this) they cut into my tissue fiercely after a minute or two. Actually the straps on this one are what's keeping me from buying one of the SMN bras! They are nothing like the straps on 34E - Bravissimo » Dina Bra (LN578) but a lot harder than them.

    Overall, happy with my purchase, and knowing this bra stretches out in both the cup and the band I think it was a good decision to get it in 70FF.

      I don't really see the super pointy, I think it looks good on you. Maybe not as round as the 80E, perhaps because this one is molding to you better? Sometimes our shape is naturally pointy. 😐

    • 2

      Yes I think that could be it. The 80E is slightly too large in the cup for me... Sister sizing is whack in EM bras honestly.

    • 1

      I also think it looks great on you. And yes, Ewa sister sizing is wonky!!

    70E

    Didn't fit

    This bra has been in my radar for quite some time. Yesterday, I was able to go to Forever Yours Lingerie in Langley, BC as I was visiting friends and spent several hours trying on lots of bras. This is the one that came home with me, but there were 4 altogether that were my top contenders. I will eventually get the bras I tried added, with pictures and reviews, though I didn’t measure any of them. It’s kind of awkward to do in store.

    Anyway, this one really got my attention after seeing it reviewed on the Big Cup Little Cup blog. It’s a basic black lace ... bra with beige mesh underneath, so it looks sheer but it is not. That said, the stretch lace on top is not lined like the regular BMs. This bra is a hybrid of the full lace and half lace BM. It’s a full lace BM, but it’s got the thicker stretch lace upper that the half lace BMs have. This one also has added loops to attach the extra/decorative straps to. I found them far easier to use with this bra than the PL Cappuccinowy I had, however I’m still not sure which orientation is correct. As they cut into my soft tissue, I am not fussed over them, to be perfectly honest. The reason why I chose this bra is that I really want a good everyday black workhorse bra. I’ve got a few, none of which are perfect, for a variety of reasons, however, this one allowed me to list one of the less ideal ones.

    Now onto fit. I actually tried this in two sizes, and it wasn’t until I was trying on everything I had narrowed down with the matching bottoms that I asked to see if a smaller size was going to fit better, because I was initially trying the 70F, and my small side had a bit of loose fabric, unlike the Wersal and Malachit 70Fs (and the Zmierzch SF) so I tried the 70E. I had remembered that some people find that this bra fits a little bit bigger than the others. This one is *almost* to small. It’s like borderline. I need a size in between. It’s definitely a little lower cut for a BM and I do have a little puffing on my big side. But between the 70F fitting ok on big boob and wrinkling from excess fabric and the 70E slightly puffing, we both agreed that this was the better fit, and that as the lace relaxes with wear and washing, I might settle into the cups a little bit more. It’s also a slightly narrower cup and the straps fit slightly closer together and don’t ride the pits as much. The size equivalent of the other Ewas I tried were definitely too small. This one is only a weensy bit, and I got matching bottoms. I’m pretty pleased with my purchase. It really was a hard call with the others.

      I think this looks really good on you. It may be a just a touch small on your larger side, but your smaller side is a great fit. I prefer to fit to my smaller side (I know, you're supposed to fit to the larger size). I hate gaping... Nice find, and can't wait to see what else you tried there!

    • 2

      Yes, I completely agree. I think that it’s entirely dependent on how the larger side or smaller side fits and the construction of the bra that dictates if I can tolerate the gapping or the puffing. That’s why I went with this one instead. But the 65F in Ice Blue BM and Fruit SF were definitely too small. I definitely needed a size up in both.

      Gorgeous!

    • Thanks everyone! I was nervous with the size down, but in this case, it’s preferable to be a little small on my big side than too big on my small side.

    • 1

      Really beautiful! And I enjoyed seeing what else you tried on as well 😊

    • I still have more to add. Some of the styles need adding still.

    • I’ve added a few more pictures, including one with the straps.

    • I’m having a few doubts that I’m in the right size after wearing it a few times now. I’m definitely pushing it on my big boob side. I spill out on my bigger side when I’m leaning over, and my center spilling is noticeable. I knew going into this size that it’s a little bit too small, but in retrospect, I think I might need the 70F. Especially as it will be more forgiving with high tide.

    65GG

    Fits

    My shape: Projected, narrow, shorter roots, even/functionally full on bottom, soft tissue. Cleo Lily fits me best.

    I'm currently about a 30G, and I'd say this bra fits pretty close to that. The stretch lace seems fairly forgiving, though, so this may work for a 30GG?

    I've avoided stretch lace Ewa bras until now because I've always gotten in-cup quadding with stretch lace in other brands (I imagine because I have very soft tissue). I'm happy to say that I don't get any in-cup quadding in this!

    However, I won't be keeping this because it just isn't comfortable. The straps cut into my tail of spence pretty badly (as do most EM's on me), and for some reason they feel like they're digging into my shoulders, even though it doesn't look like it. Pity.

    Fits

    My first try of the BM cut from Ewa Michalak . I think I could have gone up one cup size but alas, I'm always trying to fit both my large and my smaller side and struggle on which cup to get especially with a soft cup because they are about 3/4 cup difference. Thankfully the lace is stretchy and accommodates my larger side even though I really do think an F would have been better. It's not terrible by any means and I can see the asymmetry way easier in a soft cup compared to anything with padding but sometimes you just don't want ... that extra little bit under your clothes so that you can be a little less boobalicious that day! Ewa, as usual, is narrow wires and projected and even in a soft cup she has managed to achieve a great fit in my size range. Unlike Gorsenia which likes to gape along the edge of the cup, this bra hugs and I suspect it's due to the elasticity and stretch of the lace Ewa chose for this bra. Now I'm sold on these bra types...need more...hoping she comes out with some new styles soon and includes BM. The straps are really a nice accessory - they clip into the center at the top of the gore (see photo) and have little rings on the straps to clip into. They fit a little differently on each side of me due to my asymmetry.

    Another home run by Ewa I'd say. Now to see how she wears for a full day!

      so pretty! i almost got one during her clearance sale a few weeks ago, but after watching all day, someone bought it just before I made up my mind!

    • Thanks dbmamaz ! The one that got away? I think you can order regular price now? Not sure as she seems to be running out of sizes on some.

      have you ever tried fitting the larger side and using a silicone cookie? I resisted for a long while, but it really makes a huge difference. I find the fit on my larger side is now perfect and with the padding on the smaller side to fill out the cup, all my fit issues from assymetry just disappear! The silicone with really tapered edges at the bottom of the cup works even in most non-padded bras without any noticeable bumps. Plus, after wearing the silicone for a couple months, it shifts in its plastic to create a smoother shape. It took a little getting used to - to suddenly be that much bigger on my smaller side - but it really is worth trying!

    • 2

      Yet another beautiful bra on you! I love the BM style. It's definitely one of my favorites for every day. I can wear it from morning until bedtime without it bothering me. I hope it's as comfortable for you!

      roxannelovesbras This looks great on you! Thank you for the review, I've had my eye on this one and was hoping to see others post photos of it. Is it just one layer of the black stretch lace, no backing?

      maddy2596 Do you have a brand of silicone cookie to recommend? I have a full cup size difference and would love something compatible with an unpadded bra.

    • 2

      eryoptical Black lace but Ewa has put a beige toned tulle layer behind it. It helps to hide nipples and provides some support. The topmost part of the cup is just black lace for the see through effect. She thinks of everything :)

      I use Commando Takeouts. They are a good full cup size and I usually use then "upside down" on the bottom of the cup with a litte fold. I can't wear them directly on my nipple without a piece of fabric between the plastic and my nipple, but they are otherwise quite comfortable. My cat tried to eat them when I first got them, so I make sure they are in a drawer - but I only usually need one. They are a little pointier than I would like, so I have to "play" with them a little to make sure they look right. It took a few wearings to "reshape" them and soften the edges, but they are pretty good now. I am wearing them in the following bra photos:

      http://bra.pe/XVKJ/

      http://bra.pe/XUxH/

      I will try to add photos with the cookie to the rest of my bras today. When you look closely, you can see the difference in shape. My smaller side is not at projected at the apex necessarily looks different. But it works for me!

      I just added photos (need to be approved) with cookies for Emprientes, Gaias, CK, Ava, Kinga, Flirtelle, Comexim, and Impimi. Hopefully it helps!

    60FF

    Didn't fit

    This bra was ordered from Broad Lingerie in Toronto during the Black Friday sale. I had been lusting after this bra after seeing it online - it looks so sexy in all of the promotional photos. I found this bra to be a bit of a letdown, I prefer the look and the fit of SM Czarna Mgielka.

    Declaimer - I ordered this bra before I tried the BM Baklazan in 65F, which proved to be too small. I knew that when this bra arrived, it would likely also be too small.
    I experienced the same fit issues with the bra as the Baklazan, namely, the cups ... are too small and not projected enough. My breasts are firm enough that there is no in-cup quadding, but I do feel very compressed.

    The band on this bra is a firm 60 and feels very secure. I would certainly suggest that other ladies who need a true 28 choose a 60 band in this bra. Unlike the Baklazan which had a lace band (and was very firm), this band is just a single layer of knitwear and will likely stretch over time.

    The tulle lining at the bottom of the cups appears to have zero stretch, while the lace lining the top of the cup is very stretchy. This helps to disguise the ill-fit of this bra, and would likely be very accommodating for size changes, providing that the bottom of the cup has enough depth.

    The adjustable spaghetti steps on this bra looked really cute in the EM photos, but in real life don't add much to the bra in this size range. In fact, I like how this bra looks online much better than in real life. Without the straps, the bra looks like a pretty basic black bra - its nothing special. I do not think I would reorder this bra in a larger size, I would rather have a brighter coloured BM (maybe La Gloria?!)

    Sam from Broad Lingerie is nice enough to allow me to exchange this bra for another, larger BM. If you are Canadian and looking for a local store to order EM through - I would highly recommend Sam. She is excellent and very personable. However, she did warn me that it takes about 8 weeks for custom orders (like a 60 band) to be delivered. I believe that she allows exchanges for all standardized size EM bras, and exchanges for custom bras that are in styles that she sells in the store - like the BM bibi black.

    • Bummer! Sorry it didn't fit. :-/

      At least I could add some data MamaPagan! There is not much info available about the very bottom of the BM size range. Hopefully it will help someone else who's thinking about ordering this size.

    • You are 100% correct rachaelll. Each and every bra is valuable data regardless of fit and for that I am thankful for both the fits and the fails. (Though we all want the fits far more than the fails!! :-D)

    • Sorry it was a disappointment for you - I loved mine! I still wear it sometimes even tho its a tad small - tho less, now that i have other strappy ewas.

      dbmamaz I saw your review of this bra when I was researching which size to buy. It looks amazing on you! I think if I had a little more volume (and cleavage!), this bra would look much better.

      You know what would be hilarious? I used to live in Toronto, and I always make a trip to Broad when I visit. Depending on my bra needs next time I go, I may snatch up this exact bra because AFAIK I'm basically their only customer who wears 60FF lmao ;)

    • 1

      You could probably let Sam know. She’d probably reserve it for you sherrach898. It’s didn’t realize that you were not in Toronto anymore. I wish I was close enough to get to Broad....but I’m pretty much as far west as you can get...so far west that I’m on an island. Lol.

    • 2

      sherrach898 too funny! I believe that I first saw the recommendation for broad in one of your reviews for a 60ff BM. There are not many available in the size range and yours were so detailed and helpful.

    • 1

      Calluna I don't know that I really need this bra enough to reserve it, but should the fates align next time I'm at the boutique, I may choose to snatch it up lol. rachaelll I'm so glad my reviews were helpful to you! :)

    I wanted to try an Ewa Michalak bra and selected this one from advice from Jaimie over at Bra Obsessed. She suggested that I go up a band and cup size from my normal size.

    The good:
    This bra is the first bra I’ve tried that doesn’t have cloth rubbing against my armpit.
    The straps can adjust more than any Curvy Kate or Panache bra I’ve ever tried.
    The material is super soft, even though it looks scratchy.
    It’s quite beautiful.

    The bad:
    This bra is not designed for my shape at all. I can stick a hand in the top on both sides. The bottom still shows wrinkles, which has always been a bad sign for me of too shallow.
    The band is bigger than I would like, I can fasten it on the second tightest hook to start, and there are four columns of three hooks on this bra.

    I wish this bra would have worked, since it feels quite comfortable.

    • so weird, I just got this in a 75J and its a super awesome fit for me. Sorry it didnt work

    • Sigh. Thankful the material is soft. Hope you find a better fit soon!

    • I'm surprised anyone suggested going up a cup size in the BM. That bra is so tall & deep! A lot of people have to size down a cup in it. I find it fairly shallow at the bottom too though. It's not a horrible fit on me but there are better fits out there.

    • lcl0706 She said "In your size range, most go up two cups in padded bras and one cup in unpadded bras." From everything I've read about Ewa bras recently, it seems like the brand is highly inconsistent.

    • Oh, yeah, i missed that up-a-cup bit. I wear the same size in panache and ewa unlined.

    This fits almost exactly like my other stretchy Ewa Michalak BM. I like the nude lining with the black lace, kinda faking being see through. The additional straps are cute and fun!

    70F

    Didn't fit

    I tried this one on initially and when I went to try it on with the bottoms, I noticed the small wrinkling in my small boob. I asked her if I could try a cup size smaller, since I had heard that this one runs a little bit deeper than the regular BMs. I ended up going with the 70E which is a tiny bit small. This one is a tiny bit big. I opted for the smaller one as I felt like the upper lace is likely to stretch and relax more with wear and I’d rather it be smaller than too big. My pictures don’t fully capture the small boob side wrinkles.

    It’s a really good daily black bra. I felt like I really need a size in between.

    • I have the black and red BM - Flamenco - and can confirm that that one IS deeper than the other BMs I have in the same size. I think this one is like Flamenco. Great for me to know, because Flamenco is the only BM that fits me.

    • Yeah, this one and Flamenco are supposed to fit the same.

    The BM is a four part construction, with the lower section divided in two parts, an upper stretched lace section, and a triangular section at the upper-side connecting the straps to the lower and upper section. This a full lace BM, so the lower section is also lined.

    For the measurements, both the minimum cup depth was measured by hovering the cup between the knees and hanging the tape measure. This was recorded at 12 inches. The maximum cup depth was measured by stretching the cup over the knee. This was recorded at 14 inches. Not stretched the band measures 22.3 inches while stretched it measures 27.2 inches. I'm ... somewhere between a 28 and 30 in UK measurements, and hooking this bra on the 3rd loosest hookset works fine for me.

    I love this bra, I think it's in my top 3 favourite bras right now. It gives great lift, (probably the best out of all my EM bras), the gore lies flat, and there's little to no overspill.

    Side Note: I'm all tuckered out from writing two other reviews just now (takes little to nothing to get me tired these days), so I'll probably add more details later.
