My first EM. Fabulous job shipping so quickly, immodestmouse. Thanks!!
It's altered to a 55GG, so the band is a bit too tight (as expected) and the straps are a little too wide set (kind of expected). Otherwise, I like it!
Edit to add - I have moved the straps in about 2cm on the front side only, since writing my original review. I plan on updating m blog sometime before I die to show how I did the alteration. It much improved the lift I get from this bra and added a degree of cakes cleavage that comes in handy sometimes!
This was my first Ewa bra, and I am hooked! It is amazing -- great support, no poking, no jabbing, super supportive and well-constructed band, and perfect colour for my pasty pale self.
I am bottom-heavy with pretty bad asymmetry and this is the FIRST bra I've worn that can fill out my small side as well as not quadboob or gap ontop -- two issues I have often in moulded cups.
I highly recommend that ladies considering Ewa bras do NOT buy this in a band size down as they usually must in Freya bras or other brands that run large in the band. Ewa bras, in my experience, run perfect to size -- this bra band was 23" unstretched brand new -- and do not need to be sized down to fit.
This is the CH Biszkopty, for some reason it didn't show up on the list, and when I tried to add it, it said it was already listed This could be it! The cups are very close together, which I like both to give the shape I want, and to fit my close set boobs. I know many people have all sorts of thumb rules of how EM bras fit, but I've got to say, I find this to run quite true to size. Maybe a slightly snugger band? Which is fine with me, I measure 33.5", so snugish 34's are good for me ...(I realize this is in fact a 36, silly me tried it on, and was so thrilled that I took of the tag, before trying the 75HH which I had ordered for comparison, which was in fact a better fit. *sigh* - so I close this on tightest hook, and will alter it if needed when/if it stretches) The shape that it creates* is exactly what I want: Front center, and 'outwards' rather than horizontally boobs on chest, or vertical boobs on chest (Eh, don't know if I explain properly, but many bras give wide boobs, and then some, push-up's and that sort of thing, also puts a lot of boob on the chest, but upwards toward the collar bone. I prefer to have them take up as little space as possible on the body, and go outwards instead) I got the most plain bra I could, as I like to wear white dresses etc, and this is perfect: I quite liked the looks of the Toffik, but I think it would have been too dark for me, and this is my skin tone almost exactly. It has very narrow wires, which is perfect! It is perhaps ½-1" too narrow on my left boob (the biggest) and ½-1" too wide for my right boob (the smallest - even with pad to correct asymmetri), so I would say that is pretty perfect! In other bras, it is ½-1" too wide on the big boob, and several inches too wide on the other! I was a little surprised by the material for the bras: I had hard so much about how luxurious they felt etc., and I didn't find that - I don't know what it is, it seems the thin padding is made of some material that makes a rustling sound when you touch it? But other than that, it is fine, the quality seems good, and even for the most 'boring' bra they had, it is quite cute! Decorated straps (fully adjustable), which also helps them stay in place, bows on the top of the cup and on the center gore, a little floral-lace with gold threads along the edge of the cup. I love it! And the band is soo comfortable! Very wide under the arms and all the way to the straps, gives good side support, and control some back-rolls, and then it plunges down a bit to the 3 hooks, so you don't need to worry that it will be seen under top which has a scoop on the back.
*There is a strange fold on it right now, which distorts the shape it could give, so let me get back to you on that one! Read more 446 more words
Love at first wear This is a pretty perfect fit! Awesome projection, narrow wires, narrow gore, versatile pale beige color that works nicely as a nude for me. Interestingly, there are some substantial differences between this older model CH and the newer CHs I've tried (Cherry and Zielony Pieprezek):
-cups are TTS, fitting in the same volume I wear in CHP (CH Cherry in particular was huge in the cups) -cups are slightly lower coverage, displaying the upper half of the breast nicely while still feeling secure -straps don't feel as wideset (and I don't get that bothersome gap near the straps) -generally better uplift/cakes on a plate action as a result of the cups fitting properly -narrower straps (than Zielony Pieprezk anyway)
I would order more custom CHs in a heartbeat if I knew they would fit like this, but I'm not sure that's the case!
I can't decide whether I prefer the fit on this one or the 85C. I'll have to try both a couple more times now that I've got my extender in -- the band is juuuuuust a smidge too small as it is, but it'll be fine with some wear. My current feeling is that the 85D is a bit wider in the wire and that works better for me. The 85C seemed borderline too narrow on me.
This is not the prettiest Ewa bra in the universe -- I mean, it's beige -- but it's very well-made and sturdy. And, more importantly, it makes my boobs look amazing. It ...makes me look like I am not a card-carrying member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee. It ALMOST gives me cleavage but not quite.
The cups fit me quite well, although there's a little gapping at the top of the cup when my posture isn't perfect. Pretty sure that's just my lot in life with this type of cup. The biggest fit problem for me is that the gore is quite narrow and my boobs are quite wide-apart. This isn't really a huge issue, because they're totally happy to be nudged a bit more to center, and it looks pretty awesome.
So yes, it's not a perfect fit. But it makes my boobs look so good *I don't care*. Actually it also makes me look so much bustier than normal I'm a little uncomfortable wearing it out of the house at the moment. Which, when you're my size, is KIND OF AWESOME. Read more 150 more words
This is my first properly fitting EM CH-style bra, the previous being the CH Lato, which had a too loose band. Since I now have a couple of CHPs that fit perfectly, reviewing this one is easier. Now, the shape I get with the CH Biszkopty is uncannily like the one I get with my Belle Modeste custom made overbust corset. Very rounded, very uplifted and quite narrow from the front. I don't see much difference to the CHPs, but may be because in this big cupsize the fine points of construction are lost. The basic model works magnificently, however. Pros: - Ewa has obviously patented the gravity-defying ...support. And thank goodness for that! - The shape (rounded, perky) knocks just about anyone off their feet - simply perfection - Soft materials all over - Very sturdy band. Now this is what I'd call "tight". Hope it'll hold its shape better than the Ch Lato, which had a sadly stretchy band. - Good, neutral powder colour, disappears under light shirts.
Cons: - In JJ cup the bra is indeed sturdy. It may distract those who subconsciously want a bralette. Beware, the Biszkopty is IMO padded a bit more thickly than the other padded EMs. Read more 100 more words
My shape: Projected, narrow, shorter roots, even/functionally full on bottom, soft tissue. Cleo Lily fits me best.
This fits pretty much like a 30G with the cookies in. Without the cookies, I have a fair amount of gaping at the top of both cups, and it's pretty noticeable under shirts since the cups are more rigid/straight than the unlined bras I usually wear. The wires are wider than I'd like, and the straps do cut into my tail of spence a bit.
This bra is the most beautiful beige bra I have seen and it gives me a shape no other bra has been able to give: in Ewa's words like "apples in a basket" (which is pretty amazing considering my breasts are on the smaller side with not much upper fullness). So, if you have always dreamed of a really lifted, round shape - this is for you! Before trying EM's bras, I had always thougth shape like this just wouldn't be possible for breasts like mine.
I have owned this for maybe two years and the bra has held it's shape quite well, the band hasn't really stretched, the ...only noticeable thing is the slight creasing in front. This is the size that the calculator on EM's website suggested me and this size has worked for me in all other shapes I have tried (3dm, CHP, MP). There are removable pads for correction of assymmetry and the straps stay really well in place after adjusting due to strap material.
The cups are quite deep and suited for lower fullness - this may not work for someone with shallow breasts. Because the cups are really open on top, my lesser upper fullness is no problem. The band is looser than in the 3dm, CHP and MP models I own, but I can wear it on the tightest hooks - I would say it fits like a looser 28-band in other brands. It fits comfortably and all in all, I don't really have anything to complain about this bra! Despite the seaming, it works really well even under tight shirts. Read more 158 more words
This bra is pretty much perfect for me. The wires are narrow but not as much so as the Comexim I have which is a bit too narrow; the depth and space at the bottom of the cup are perfect while the cups are low enough to give nice cleavage; the straps are fully adjustable; and the band isn't extremely tight but feels firm and supportive. The only thing I would change about this one would be three hooks instead of two, but that's just personal preference.
I have trouble finding bras that have enough depth at the bottom/middle of the cups without coming up far too high on my chest or becoming too wide, so I wish I had more of these CH style bras, but I'm always hesitant to order from Ewa Michalak directly with everything I've heard about sizing inconsistencies.
Pretty much my perfect nude bra! Based on measurements here (and that fact that I have no upper pole tissue), I suspect I could size down to the DD without issue but I am happy with this fit.
The lace that edges just over the top of the cup hides the seams so I can wear this under a thin shirt. The shape it gives my breasts is very nice, high and round. The straps are fully adjustable and have embroidery to keep the hardware from slipping. I LOVE the included pads to hide the asymmetry of my smaller breast.
Overall, I think this band felt fairly stretchy on, but when I stretched it for a measurement it was not so it is very comfortable.
