This is the smallest BM bra Ewa makes, and it is actually scaled pretty nicely for the smaller sizes! I really adore the colour of this bra. It is a very nice shade of mint, but the camera does not capture that. Unfortunately, this bra does not suit my shape very well, so I have returned it, but will give my two cents on it for anyone interested in this in the smaller range.
First of all, the band runs really tight. I stretched it to about 27.5 inches on the largest hook, and there are 4 sets of them. It felt pretty ... good on the 2nd to largest hook for me for 25 inch ribs, but that was because I had some problems with the underwires.
The underwires on this bra are extremely narrow. It is narrower than any of the other Ewa styles I've tried, with a width of about 4.8". They are also very stiff, which provide excellent support and do not really spring out when worn, which contributes also to the narrowness of the cups. Since my roots are a bit wider than this, it causes slight distortion in the wires to press in at the ends when I try to fit my boob in it, which is painful and uncomfortable.
The cups are also made for slightly shorter roots, with a bit more projection, I believe. The upper piece, while extremely stretchy and forgiving, really wants to sit slightly more horizontal than almost completely vertical. As a result, it sort of scrunches downwards on me and can wrinkle the apex a bit. The apex of the cups are slightly too deep for me. You can see the slight wrinkling there from not being able to fill it out, which gets worse as I wear it because the top stretch lace wants to lay differently.
Overall, this is a very nice bra that would suit someone else much more. On me, I feel like its not very supportive or comfortable. According to Ewa, it is supposed to do wonders for 'soft and less firm breasts', which I believe seeing the results on other women.
For anyone considering the matching thong, I found that they were absolutely HUGE for a size 36. The fullest part of my bum is ~35.5 inches which puts me in a 36 according to their size chart, but I have seen larger women take this size too. I would have probably needed a 32 in this if they made it.
