    70FF

    Fits

    BM La Gloria is the last of my orders directly from EM and I finally got it today.

    The green colour is exactly the same as the one in the photos one the website. It is an absolutely beautiful forest green with brown details. In the photos, the browns look more like black, but they are definitely brown!

    Now, I don't know why in my photos it looks like the bra is a little small on me, because I feel like when it's on me it's the largest of my 70FFs I have. I think I might have taken these photos without properly scooping and swooping so it looks like ... it's small under the armpits and is sitting on my breast tissue but it's really not. I've been wearing it all day and it fits great, supportive, safe, nothing is spilling out, poking or bothering me in any way whatsoever. Also in the photos the band is sitting too low on my back I think cause I didn't adjust it. I have a very sensitive mole on my back that I have to be veeeery careful with so when I first put on a bra I have to have the band a little lower so as not to accidentally catch it. In some cases I tend to just leave the band lower if it's bothering the mole, so maybe that's what happened here as well. Point is, probably I will add new photos because these seem hasty and I barely even remember taking them cause I had a busy day!

    Anyyyyhow. Loose band again, definitely not as tight as my 70FF - Ewa Michalak » Bm Fluo. It's double layered with stretchy mesh + stretchy green fabric. I mean it's snug and it fits great but will it stretch? That remains to be seen. This just confirms my hunch that the 70 bands on EM bras are true 70s now. BM Fluo fits more like a loose 65, this is definitely a 70. I don't know what this means for 60s and 65s but I thought it was just worth noting.

    The cups have to be the deepest so far on 70FFs. Three part cups, they are lined with stronger brown mesh (more rigid) than my other BMs. The lace is stretchy at the top and so is the mesh to adjust for asymmetry. Typical BM cups that fit great.
    Now I've been wondering if I should just go for 70G because my larger side does feel a liiiittle bit squished and has some quad potential. But on my smaller side the bras all feel a little less supportive because I think it's like a few cups smaller. So I think 70FF is a good compromise to get a similar fit on both sides. But the doubt is killing me. I don't think my smaller side could even fill out the 70G :/. (For the record, my smaller side is the one with the tattoo)

    The gore tacks and the bow on the gore is huge and I absolutely love it.
    Ewa altered the straps for me to be a little bit longer. They added 10cm I believe. Just wonderful https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The bow... also wonderful. The green detail... I love it.

    Overall, I am very happy with my La Gloria. What a beautiful bra!

    edit: also, it gives me some major cleavage!
    edit: added some proper scoop and swoop photos, but now the straps seem overtightened (although they don't feel so, lol).

    Update after wearing it a while:
    I find La Gloria to have the best side support of all my BMs. The lace on top is very forgiving to size fluctuations.

      They must use more than one option on this one as all the accents on mine are definitely black not brown. How strange! Sovavosi Is yours black or brown?

      I ordered mine when it was first released, before it went out of stock and came back so maybe this is why.
      I like the brown accents, makes it very earthy!! :-)

      Oooooh I like this one. It's pretty!

      brasaremean Yeah, and I actually pulled mine out of the drawer to double check as photos can be off.

      I can't wait to see more added and find out if it's a permanent change or if you got a special one. :-)

    • 1

      At first I thought mine was black too actually, but it was kinda dark in my room. Only when I saw my photos I realised they details are actually brown lol!

      Frazzleberry it is absolutely gorgeous!

    • 2

      Mine are black too.

      I think your band looks like it is at an appropriate level. It's like an not talked about arguments between bra fitters and wearers alike, if the band should be very low in the back or straight around. Some say that the top of the band in the back should be at the same level as the bottom of the cups in the front, so even lower than what you have here! While others says a straight line around, the bottom of the band being equal level all the way around the torso.

      I try to go by this rule if I start saying things like "I feel a tiny/little bit squished" or "the cup can be a tiny/little bit smaller" than I know that I am nitpicking too much and the bra fits great and I'm just trying to double guess and confuse myself. But if I'm saying "omg this is sooo tight you can see my boob overflowing the cups through shirts!" or "ouch! that wire is causing me alot of discomfort/the elastics are digging in really bad" or "there is alot of room in the entire cup." Then that's when I know it's a legitimate bra not-fitting-right-problem and not just me nit picking my asymmetry or wanting perfection on each breast even though they are different shapes and even sitting at different levels on my torso. Maybe this'll help you figure out when your being too hard on yourself and your body or if it's truly a fit problem that can be fixed (without the bra being made just for your body! :-P)

      It looks great and I'm so happy you've found bras that you love the fit of.

      This bra is stunning on you!

      Thanks veggiechic

      LeProfessor I know, the doubt is unbearable. Constantly second guessing. I feel perfectly fine in it though.
      I think it's cause I spent a shitload of money on these bras (like more than I should have, probably), I keep expecting to have wasted that money.

    • 1

      I feel your pain brasaremean. I think all of us do, but they are addicting!

    • 1

      This is beautiful! Personally I've never regretted sizing up to fit the big boob. If I try to compromise (a bit too small for bigger side, a bit too big for smaller size) neither cup/wire sits securely and I just end up feeling cranky with the whole thing. If I fit my larger boob really perfectly the bra stays in place better and I can position the smaller one more easily as well.

    • 1

      This bra is so beautiful. If I could still order through EM, I would order this bra in a heartbeat (but alas, her DHL shipping costs make that impossible for me in Cnd). From the pictures, it looks like the fit is really good. Would you get the support you need from a larger cup or do you think it compromise cup support?

    • 1

      wendybien it is absolutely beautiful, I'd even say out of the bunch I ordered it's the prettiest!

      Wilderness1 I think I'd have to reeeeeally tighten the strap to get any support on the smaller side as even right now I feel it's not being supported enough.

    • 1

      Wilderness1 Look into Broad Lingerie! She's based in Toronto, and carries Ewa bras in her store, and can order them for you! Doing so may save you the crazy shipping costs from ordering direct.
      Also, this bra is so so pretty! Is it the same lace she used in the BM Crazy? I have that one and it's one of my favorites!

    • mandapandarawks Yes, same lace as Crazy :-)

    • Wilderness1 here is the reply that I got from Broad Longerie. I had asked them if they'd received any fitting feedback on the BM Cabernet so far, and also if they knew what was coming in over the next few months, questioning whether Baklazan, Porto, or Rubin were among them.

      "So sorry for the delay! So far we're finding the BM Cabernet to run a little big in the band compared to most Ewa Michalak bras, but the cups are accurate. So if you're between band sizes you may want to go to the smaller size.

      As for winter orders, we have the BM La Gloria on order due to arrive in late December. We likely won't be ordering the Porto or Baklazan as they are too similar to the BM Cabernet, but we may order the Rubin (or something else if Ewa releases something new) later for February-ish!"

      So it's possible that you can get the La Gloria from them if you like. They can put you on a call/email list for when it comes, like they did for me with Cabernet. I just can't afford it now. I spent my saved up bra money on a couple of used Ewas to test the styles and sizing, so I have started to save again but I'm only halfway to total, which I think was something like $125 after tax and shipping outside of Ontario.

      Hope this helps!

    • Looks great on you. I wouldn't worry about band stretching as the ones with the fabic are stretching out less than the mesh ones (at least in my case). Also as far as the band does not ride up its fine.
      Cannot wait for mine!

    • Calluna I want the Cabernet so bad but literally no one in EU will ship it to me, and from elsewhere the shipping is insane.

      martka00 That's been my experience too but it's a short experience so I'm still wary. Fingers crossed! Bibi Black and Bibi Bezova Perla both stretched out beyond being able to wear them.
      Are you getting La Gloria too? Very curious about the black vs brown details!

    • brasaremean honestly I didn’t find my bras to stretch out but I do wear looser bands as I can’t squeeze myself due to reflux. I only recently moved on again to band 65 as I’ve been exercising and noticed some underbust reduction. I still have many bras in 70 and find them not to ride up (my underbust is 73cm snug, 69cm right and 75loose). I have hardly any 70 band bra that does ride up (panache are the only ones and one Comexim, so I tend to avoid wearing them now).

      I hope my Gloria have black accents as I can’t imagine it with brown ones ;(

    • 1

      The brown is barely distinguishable from black except in photos, honestly. I kinda like it, it's unusual!

    • Well we will see! My order is still processing :(

    • Yes this one took forever!

    • I wish she release now the harness thing. Would be perfect as a gift for Christmas 😂🙈

    • 1

      brasaremean I love the brown accents! It gives the bra an earthy nature feel and I really like that. :-)

    • 1

      Yes earthy would be the word I'd use. Reminds me of an actual forest!

    • Thanks mandapandarawks an Calluna . I'll check them out and see what prices are like, etc.

    • Wilderness1 the price of the Cabernet shipped to BC was $125 and change. You might also check out Forever Yours Lingerie in Langley, BC. They offer a first time order discount of 15%, however I don't know if they are going to be getting either La Gloria or Cabernet. They do have some sizes of Absynt left and some basics. I have not tried to email them about the Ewas that they are getting. I keep hoping that I will get to the mainland and try stuff on in person and ask. But it's been difficult to get over lately.

    • Calluna that's still pretty pricey! Especially compared to how much I used to pay for an EM direct. Most of her cuts don't work very well for me for some reason, so I'm a little gunshy on spending a huge amount of money on this one, but I do love it. I've never tried her BM cut. I'd rather try one used first for fitting purposes, and order new if I can be sure it would fit... We'll see I guess...Thanks again though :)

    • Honestly, I agree and I am too, but knowing that I can return it is huge for me, especially as I have never tried a BM before. I keep searching for a BM on the listings in my size range and price range. The only ones that I have found are super old listings. I think that even if you order from Levana Bratique, it's about the same after currency conversion. The other option is to order from Ewa and have it sent to someone in the states who will send it to you.

    The cup construction of La Gloria is the typical BM style, with 2 lower vertical sections (1 seam) and 1 upper horizontal section, with a wedge area that connects the straps to the cups securely. The upper horizontal section is always made of a stretch lace, and this particular model has the upper lace section lined as well, which can vary by model. This lining doesn’t provide bulk, just modesty so you can’t see the nipples through the bra but does not stop them from showing through a shirt on a cold day. The BM style bra is not padded and provides full and separated coverage.

    The ... band measures 22.875” and stretches to 29”. It has the standard 3 hooks with 4 rows of eye loops.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 12.5”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 15.75”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    The cup width is 6”, gore 0.5” wide and 4.15” tall, and wing of 4.75”.

    While I didn’t try La Gloria in a 60K, I do have BM Crazy in that size which is the same lace and seemingly same liner, just with hot pink accents instead of black. To compare, Crazy had a 21.75”-29.75” band, 12.25”-15” cup depth, height of 9.25”, gore 0.6” and 4.15” width and height, and a 5” wing. This shows that my La Gloria has a firmer band and a lower wing, which is surprising, but the cup difference is logical in increase.

    As for fit, the cups are perfectly hugging and the gore is just under 1 finger off the sternum which is standard for me. This one fits a lot better than its counterpart, BM Crazy, which is surprising as I anticipated it to fit the same since the lace and lining are the same. The mesh lining behind the stretch lace seems firmer than with Crazy, but not as firm as with Sofia.

    I got this on Thursday as well, but I was tired and didn’t add it. I think my is also a bit brownish brasaremean! It’s a stunning bra, and I definitely like the Bm cut for when I need to appear smaller. It is really comfy, and feels like it’s not there. The one downside is that it doesn’t feel as secure, but I was expecting that. All in all - extremely satisfied with it.

    • Ah! Weird, right? That some got black and some of us got brown! So odd.

    • I would love one with brown instead of black. I love Earthy tones!! I am so jealous of you two.
      Mine had the same coverage as normal which is much lower than yours for sure. I thought most of them that I've seen did?

      I would actually suggest trying a cup size down, as this one looks great on you but does look a bit too big to me. Based on what you stated in the review and how it looks, I am confident that you would be happier with the fit in a 60JJ, as it would provide less coverage and a much more secure feeling for sure. But if you are happy with the fit and feel at this size, by all means, it's great and doable. :-D

      Can't wait to see the measurements added!! (Please please please & the other new ones too!! :-) )

    • 1

      I definitely agree with cup size down now that I see pics.
      Maybe you can ask about the brown one, MamaPagan ?

    • I did ask brasaremean. Kaska said it wasn't an option. :-( You two just got the right seamstress who snuck it in! I shall live vicariously in envy through you two. I can't get all the good ones though, right? It's only fair that some slip by!

    • 1

      That is so weird!

      I ordered la Gloria from Forever Yours and I'm the opposite of you, MamaPagan - I'm praying its NOT with brown lol

      I ordered it in 65F after reading to cup size down.

      I also ordered 70E for my Mom in this style as well as 2 sizes in Oksana.

      This is an "adventure" I'll be sure to log during Christmas week when she arrives.

      That woman measures 29" under bust but INSISTS she needs a 34 band. She says she gets bulges when she tries a 32. I'm convinced she's wearing bras with super narrow bands and too-low wings. We shall see...

      I ordered her 32's in the EMs and wont let her see the tags lol

      Whether we keep them or not, I'll photo and measure them all for the database.

    • 1

      If you ordered from Forever Yours I don't think they will be brown.

      I wanted to order the matching Panties but now I'm scared they will be black lol

    • 2

      brasaremean You'll just have to send Kaska an email with a photo of your bra and say, "my panties must match my bra please. Somewhere in your shop there's a seamstress who used brown trim on my La Gloria bra. Ask her to sew my knickers!" Lol

    • 1

      That's not a bad idea AprilGoulding!
      @brasaremean I wouldn't word it exactly like that, but maybe ask what seamstress did your bra and specifically request she make the panties maybe? Wouldn't want to get her in trouble for deviating from the standard.

      When I asked Kaska, it was one of those "would it be possible to get La Gloria with brown instead of black base and trim, for a woodsy/earth tone bra?" She said no, it's not available. (No brown base may be the key to my no though, as she did state Kawa for example had a black base not brown.) I also had asked about the reverse, with Kawa having a green base like Zielony, and Fioletowy with a green base, & Zielony with purple instead of black lace. No to all those as well. (No green base firm enough is available for unlined bras, green with purple overlay would look dull.....wait....what? I love those colors together!!!) I think I often test the Ewa customization boundries! :-D

      I eagerly await your holiday adventure AprilGoulding : -) I hope everything fits perfectly all around!

    • 2

      That's pretty funny there's a seamstress out there sneaking in brown base into a black base bra. Lol

      MamaPagan brasaremean - oh my, yes. I do see how my wording might get someone in trouble :/

      The Newfie in me is loud and proud in it - we use colloquial speech that's often interpreted as abrupt or rude, when really not meant to be ;)

      @mamapagen I love green with purple too. It's kinda mermaid-ish :)

      @mamapagen Could you tell me, please, how the Wersal sizes compared to La Gloria? I am pretty certain you have them both...

      I'm always looking out for the little guy and even if it wouldn't be an issue, I just figure if I was told no but it's been done, someone might get dinged for doing it which we don't want, especially when we like the changes being done!! :-)

      Mermaid colors, yes!! Add the right shade of blue into the mix and we'd be set! (Like Wersal-that shade would blend beautifully with the purple and green!!)

      I think Wersal fits pretty comparable to La Gloria, except it only has 3 hooksets instead of the standard 4 on most Ewa bras. Cup wise, thry are the same though.

    • MamaPagan brasaremean I know that I could go down a cup size, but considering that I’m at my lowest point right now (there’s about a cup size difference between lowest and biggest), and still growing, I don’t want a bra that will only last me a month. (Funny thing - I could barely get my hand in the cup to scoop and swoop, so I took the photos half scoop. I realized it after taking the bra off, and seeing the wire markings out of my IMF)

    • You know your body better than we do, so indeed, follow your instincts. :-)

    • MamaPagan Thanks for the suggestion tho!

    • You're welcome : -)

    65FF

    Hasn't set fit

    Wow I’m obsessed with how gorgeous this set is. I actually gasped when I saw it. The color combo with the shiny lace is just a dream come true for me. I’d never tried the BM cut but I couldn’t resist that emerald green color. I was so torn over sizing as it is recommended to size down in the cup. At first I ordered the 65F, but then changed it to 65FF. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to fill out the cups, but I do and it gives some unexpected cleavage. I really love the depth at the wire. I had read that the BM ... gives a more “natural” and I’d agree with that. My biggest concern is that the straps are only halfway adjustable! This is an issue for me because I already need to tighten the straps as much as I can to get enough lift for my pendulous shape. Once the straps begin to stretch, I won’t be able to tighten them much further at all. That is my reasoning for the comfort being good rather than excellent. Overall La Gloria is a gorgeous set and I can see it selling out quickly.
