I don't ever want to wear another bra. I adore this Bm Szmaragd, it's comfortable, subtly sexy, understated, well-made, accomodating to asymmetry and varying fullness throughout one's cycle. It's so reliable and kind I half expected it to ask me how my day was when I took it off last night. I want every single one now! I'm honestly still a bit in shock - it's hard to believe the comfort of wires that are narrow enough, a band that supports without being tight, and a bra that feels attractive but isn't at all garish or risque.
I was lucky enough to ...acquire this bra (brand new with tags) in a sale from Anya99 , who was incredibly helpful and knowlegeable about her "inventory". I would never have suspected a 65GG would be the right size for me in any bra (though it does seem more and more like bra sizes are useful only to estimate the correct size within particular brands and even cuts. It's a depressing thing when you get one bra to fit and then realize you'll have to keep going through the process of trial and error with each new brand or style you try. This realization had made me even more aware of the importance of adding measurements, reviews and pictures here, particularly for new styles. I am so lucky to be able to benefit from the experience and experiments of this entire community). The Ewa Michalak website does say to size down in the Bm, and I'm certainly glad I didn't let my worries about the size deter me from trying this bra. For comparison, I will include that I found a Comexim plunge in 65M to fit, but Comexim 3HCs in 65M and 65N were both too small in the cups (probably due to lack of immediate projection). I purchased 2 CHPs in the same sale from Anya99: 60HH - Ewa Michalak » Chp Klaudyna (747) and 60HH - Ewa Michalak » Chp Owoce Leśne (573) , both of which also fit quite well. It's possible that the CHPs would be better in a 60J or 65HH, but I've lost 40 pounds this year and am working on losing another 25 or so, so it seems best to err on the side slightly too small than too big or eventual gaping. Plus, this is the largest size in a 65 band offered for the Bm style before a custom fee is required (and 60 bands are all custom), so it's a good size to stick with as long as it fits!
This bra is beautiful, comfortable and very suited to soft tissue, close set breasts and center heaviness. Plus it has immediate projection aplenty. The bottom of the gore is only 1.2" wide (see my picture of this detail) and this seems to help drastically as far as avoiding falling out of cups into the center. I think the shape is quite natural but still nicely rounded.
OH MY GOD! this is just perfect. Both, the bra and the panties. I cant be more happy than Im now! I had this feeling that the set will arrive either today or tomorrow and it came in the best time *_* First of all is so hot outside, and my office feels like steam room, then I had to stay longer because we are having a control from goverment for three days on site. so yaaaaaaay So this is the second Szmaragd that I own currently, and NO, I am NOT going to sell my 'too small' 70DD that im quadding slightly and the gore is bit painful. ...My plan was to keep only one of them, but now I decided that both 65F and 70DD are staying with me. This is the only bra (probably theres no other bra that I want to own two the same ones). Anyway thank you Evadne for passing this set to me - I love you! As mentioned in previous review - I adore the colour of it on my 'milky' skin. The wires are my favourite width - 13cm - I was complaining about it with 70DD as I felt like theyre bit too narrow when the bra on, but the marks actually are behind my boobs. Also the gore is more comfy than in 70DD The cup depth is perfect - 22cm works well in this style with 13cm wires. Theres no quadding on gapping - this lace adjust beautifully to my smaller breast The band is little be more snug than my 70 - well thats obvious - however I can wear it without extender - but just to save a life for this bra I will be putting extra row from extender Straps are good, but because the band is minimally too tight theyre also minimally too wide - however they do not sit in my armpits and do not cause discomfort I got this with panties in 36 and theyre perfect! feels like theyre bigger than other panties that I've tried. Also they do not cut in my fatty belly and theyre little lower than Stalowka pants that I used to own - theyre also little bit higher than gazeta panties So yes, I am so glad to own this beauty in 2 pieces now *_* I am soooooooo happy!
So this is another bra that I've loved ever since it came out, was on my wishlist for years, and then popped up on /r/braswap in my sister size about six months ago. Of course I had to snatch it up! Luckily the seller also lived in Toronto at the time, so I actually arranged for an in-person transaction. This wasn't the first time I've done an in-person transaction, and every time has been a success! The bra fitting and swapping community is so nice
Anyway, I've only worn this once or twice because the band is too loose for me. If I'm feeling ...confident in my sewing abilities I will take the band in so that I can wear it more often! I love the design of this bra. The forest green lace, the magenta bows... just stunning! And of course, I love the shape this bra gives me: very round and natural, and so comfortable because of the stretch lace! I find that even though this is my sister size (my other two BM's fit perfectly in 60FF), this one runs a bit larger in the cups. Maybe the cups will be pulled tighter if I take the band in. Regardless, I will hoard this bra for a very long time no matter how often I actually wear it hahaha. Read more 118 more words
I was going to review this one later as I should be busy doing my research.. yeaaah sure EM bras totally destroyed my day today So this is the number 4 bra from the order. And this is the most successful one! First of all - I must admit that is the most beautiful EM bra from all that I ever owned! At the first time when I saw it on the website I didnt like it too much, I thoutgh that this green wont go well with my pale skin.. I was so wrong and just after couple ...of weeks I started to regret that I didnt buy it - jut because I got lovely dark green dress from H&M that looks so good on my pale skin and with my blond hair. Also, this bra wasnt planned with current order actually as I really wanted to try other bras - and was thinking that Ill get it if Chaberek will be successful - then week before my order was depatched ive noticed that Szmaragd was in outlet section in my size! Ive already missed few bras from outlet section, so I couldnt let this one to go as well and simply just added to my order *_* The wires are narrow - just 12.5cm - same as in my chaberek I wouldnt mind them being slightly wider but still after Ive tested this bra for around 30 min, theyre good enough and dont lie on my boobs - im not sure how this will work when walking. The gore is low and little painful just after I put it on, however the pain goes away after couple of mins The cups are little too small - perfect on smaller breast but for bigger theres tiny quad although the lace is kind of stretchy so it doesnt dig into the boob and definietly it is not noticeble under clothes. And the most important it gives me nice rounded shape + nice cleavage with my FOT and taller roots. Same situation as with chaberek - I can fol the lace to inside of the cup and get nice plunge as the gore is quite low *_* The band is true to size, snug but comfortable and I dont need extender, it has also 2x4 set. Straps are not as perfect as in my new Comexims but theyre also good enough and it wont hurt my armpits - however with some tank tops it wont work. Theyre fully adjustable - however theres some extra ribbon on the front part to make it more beautiful but I think that is also possible to shorten it with this part. well, definietly it was worth to pay 189pln for this bra and trully Im not going to regret it as probably Id with any other one! Now is time to find matchin bottoms (any ideas? I don't want EMs as they would dig in as theyre too high.. ) Read more 394 more words
My shape: semi-conical, splayed, narrow width, tall shallow roots. My breasts don't conform to bra shapes very well and are quite short.
I love this bra, it reminds me so much of the Panache Andorra, except without the super wide and painful gore. It has the same hard wires that I remember from Panache as well. The stretch lace is very soft and doesn't fight with my natural pointy shape. Under clothing the shape I get is more natural looking than a ball. The cups on this bra are very tall, but because of the stretch lace they lay flat against my shallow upper section. This bra seems like it would be able to accommodate a variety of shapes. I find it pretty amazing that a bra with such hard wires can actually be so comfortable.
If there wasn’t the Szamargd, I would probably never try the BM cut. I didn’t know what to expect in terms of fit as there are very few reviews in my size range, I was afraid the cups would be too big. I was also afraid about the cup shape after reading Jlcl119’s review. First of all, this bra is gorgeous, mainly because of the deep colour but also thanks to the beautiful lace. The red/burgundy bows make a nice contrast with the bra and it makes me think of Christmas tree When it comes to the fit, I’m not sure what to think about ...it. I was unable to show on the photos what is wrong. Overall the fit is rather good but there are some minor issues. This bra is hard to put on – it’s hard to place the wires in the IMF and to place correctly the lining under the lace of the upper cup part. They say on their website that the cup edge is stretchy in this style and you may need to size down. Well, the cup edge is not stretchy at all. This causes a tiny quad boob that I can accept, even though it shows a little under the clothes. This quad boob goes along with a tiny, diagonal, "freya like" wrinkling. The shape it gives is rather triangular than rounded. The support is great and the bra is extremely comfortable. The band isn’t very tight, I could probably wear it on the second hook but the first is OK. Since I switched to the bigger sizes (to me it’s a big 65e), I face the problem that so many of you are already familiar with – the straps placement. I’m OK with the straps wide set in the front, they don’t bother me. What is annoying, it’s the straps wide set in the back. I feel like they’re going to fall off my shoulder at any time. When you look at the back photo, you can see how wide they are set… Ewa used to say that this problem is due to the too tight band and/or too big cup, but this is not the case in my bra. I have the same issue with Mgielka. Despite of these issues, I’m overall happy that I tried this style and am now looking forward to try some new models.
EDIT I tried to stretch the lace when not wearing the bra and it does stretch, but I doesn't seem enough for me when I put it on. Read more 317 more words
This bra is a great example of why sizing down tall bras for short breasts doesn't always work. The top of this bra is completely filled out with no gaps, but the bottom is too small and squeezing my larger breast. The top also feels like it's cutting into my tissue, even though it's not super tight. I will review the 60J - Ewa Michalak » Bm Szmaragd (794) after wearing it for a bit longer. It is a better to err on too big rather than too small.
I am usually a 32FF in UK brands (snug 32.5", BTT 30", standing 39", leaning 45", laying 40"); I'm pendulous, soft, FOT but short rooted so functionally pretty even, narrow, projected omega shape, and center-full. This bra is the best fit I've tried yet! [Edited to add: I've gone back to add or correct details after regular wearing for three months.] The band is a bit tight at 30.5" stretched when new, and I think that is the only thing about the fit of this bra that isn't perfect for me, though it's fine with an extender for an extra hook; the stretched measurement is more like ...31.5" before the wires distort. The gore tacks; the lowish height and overlapping wires at the top are great for comfort for my close-ish, centerfull boobs. The straps are a nicely wide partially adjustable emerald green satin backed with soft cottony black; they're sewn with a zig zag stitch giving the straps some texture. There's also simple black... eyelash? - lace on the edges of the straps, and magenta bows on straps and gore. The cups are a beautiful emerald green stretch lace backed with a stretchy black mesh on the upper section of the cup and firmer black fabric backing the lower sections; I would actually prefer this bra viaually without the black mesh, but it is still lovely. I have a tiny bit of unnoticeable quadding on my larger breast, but the smaller fits perfectly. The wires are narrow (though not quite narrow enough due to omega shape, but comfortable) and sit perfectly in my IMF without sliding down. Shape wise I think this is quite rounded, with some lift but not as much as S/SM. The BM style is pretty full coverage - similar to Panache Clara full cup, but with a lower gore.
