I received this bra through MagdaBras4you about a week and a half ago (thank you Magda!!), and I've had the chance to wear it a couple times now. The BM cut is my all-time favourite, and I owned five others before I received this one (now I have seven, as I received another after this, which I will review soon lol). The Puder is absolutely beautiful in my opinion. The band is made of a silky, stretchy, satiny material, probably the same as my BM Szafirowa Pantera, and it is very comfy. Attached to the bottom of the band is some very soft and silky ...lace which hangs over the bottom edge, which is not itchy whatsoever to me, but may be bothersome to those who have sensory sensitivities. I find that the lace folds up occasionally, but this doesn't bother me (as opposed to when a longline folds up on me). The cups are fully made of lace.
As for the fit, I find it fits most similar to my Szafirowa Pantera in the band (although Puder is slightly looser to begin with, and may be slightly stretchier, as I have to wear it on the second or third hooks to begin with), and it fits most similar to my BM Porto in the cups. Both Puder and Porto fit me as if the cups are stiffer and have a slightly higher apex (horizontal seam) than my other BMs, although Puder gives me a rounder shape from the start than Porto did in the beginning.
Overall I'm pretty darn happy with this purchase, and I look forward to wearing it lots. Read more 167 more words
Puder is a gorgeous sophisticated cool toned dusty mauve with lace cups and a jersey band, it is lined in white mesh.
The promo images for this bra showed a darker contrasting set of bows, the set arrived with matching bows instead of the dark. This is fine, I thought the darker bows were more interesting, but the monotone look to the bra is really lovely.
Aesthetically, my absolute favorite part of this bra is the lace frill under the band. I wasn't sure if this would bother me, but it doesn't at all. It's very soft and doesn't really touch me unless I'm sitting and slouching. Not ticklish or ...annoying at all but it's ultra femme and I really love that detail and would enjoy it on more bras.
This bra is a little stretchier than some of my 70s have been lately so I need to wear it on the second or third set of hooks. This is okay, I don't mind, my Ewa bras tend to not stretch out much over time and I don't anticipate having to move to the last set at any point. As for fit, nothing really stands out to me. This is what I expect from a BM bra. Narrow wires that stay in place, soft stretchy lace that accommodates my tall shallow roots and my FoB shape. A comfortable workhorse of a bra that gives me a lovely round shape while being comfortable and ultra cute.
I got the matching bottoms, of course, they are true to their 38 size and fit my squat butt well with no cutting in. I thought that the lace trimmed back style that these are would be a bit fuller coverage than I ordinarily like, but they're pretty cheeky which makes me happy. The lace around the legs makes them more or less invisible under pants, which is great but I would still prefer a thong. I love Ewa's bottoms, but I don't love that she seems to only be making one style for her colorful offerings. I like to have both styles as I prefer options and want the ability to wear the bra more than once before washing. I've had some success with Hanky Panky offering their thongs in workable colors, but they're $25 or so and at that price I'd rather just buy two pairs of Ewa's coordinates. I still wish she'd made a thong for this bra, and that she had echoed the band frill along the thong trim. I adore having a ruffle butt, what a missed opportunity https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 321 more words
