The saga of me posting bra reviews instead of writing my final papers continues...
This was my first BM bra, and I'm sad to say I really don't like it as much as my other Ewa Michalak bras. I'm not close-set, but I have a pretty bony ribcage, so high gores bother me pretty badly and this bra is no exception. I've never worn it for a whole day because the gore digs in so much. I have short roots, so the full-coverage style gives me some gapping (wrinkling, in this case) at the top and digs into my armpits a little. The cup fits well on my bigger ...side but is a little big on my smaller side. Despite the issues and discomfort, this bra is sooooo pretty! I adore the floral patterned ribbon detailing and it's just such a cute aesthetic. The fabric is also really soft and silky. I have the matching thong in a 36 (I have a 23.5" waist and 35.5" hips) and, as usual, it's a little saggy in the butt area/the thong part is just a little too "long" if that makes sense, but the mesh in the front makes it super sexy! I'll upload pictures of it when I get a chance.
I think if you like the BM cut, this is a great bra. I'm pretty disappointed that it doesn't suit me, since basically the only bras Ewa makes anymore are the unpadded ones. I have SMN longings, so I'm hoping that that cut's slightly shorter gore will work better. Read more 149 more words
My stats: 26H/HH according to the ABTF calculator, slightly FOT, firm tissue, tall and narrow roots, center full, close set and functionally high set.
The look: This bra is so cute! It's a typical BM made of bright red stretchy fabric with white polka dots. The lower cup is lined with stable white mesh and the upper cup is made up of white stretch mesh covered by red stretch lace. It has floral print ruched ribbon on the straps. The ribbon covers about 1/3 of the full strap length. A thinner ribbon with the same print makes up the bows at the gore and straps. The gore has ...a sheer white mesh panel. The hooks and eyes are the same color as the base red, the rings and sliders on the straps are white. The matching thong is made up of the same bright red spotted fabric as the bra and has a sheere mesh panel in the front. It has thin bows that match that of the grore and straps on either side of the mesh panel and the back.
The fit: This is probably my best technical fit in an unlined bra right now. The gore tacks, albiet uncomfortably because the gore is too high and wide for my close-set breasts. The band is slightly loose but was not when I originally got it, that could be because I got it 6 months ago (unlikely that it would stretch out so quickly, I take very good care of my bras) or because I was more of a 28 band when I got it. The cups fit very well, the width and depth are great. My only issues are the gore width/height and Ewa's typical wide strap placement.
Overall impression and rating: 4/5 stars, the look of the bra is adorable, the quality is amazing. It fits me well aside from the gore. I think a 60G or 55GG would be better as the gore height would lower dramatically and the stretch lace upper cup could handle the extra volume since the cup would be technically too small.
