I love this bra so much! It's incredibly narrow and projected with a round shape and low coverage. If you can never find narrow enough wires, look at the CH shape. It hides well under thin t-shirts and works well with almost any neckline. I get amazing cleavage in this. It's very open on top, and would be compatible with tall roots. The straps and band are both thin, which I like for wearing under summery shirts. The band runs a tiny bit more than a full size small. I love this bra!
I was lucky after reading countless online reviews, to guess my Ewa size exactly. And what a payoff! This bra fits like it was made for me.
In a 65 (30) band, it's nice and firm. Even a couple months after purchase, I haven't felt the need to switch hooks once, so I suspect it's not very stretchy.
The cups are deep and hold you face forward-I didn't realize how necessary deep cups were to me until I compared this bra to a bra with shallow and wide cups.
The color normally falls into a category that I call "non-nude nudes" but I was so won over by the delicate detailing ...and the rich color, that I went ahead and bought it anyway. It does not function as a nude bra for me, but it is beautiful nonetheless.
The construction is good. With so much detailing (on the straps, on the wings) there's plenty of opportunity for a loose thread here or there, but I didn't find any.
The only thing I don't like is a slight tendency to feel "jiggly." Maybe it's a by-product of wearing bras that don't fit, but I like feeling held just a little closer to my chest. As I understand, Ewa's HP bras do this, and that's where I'll be headed next. Read more 105 more words
I am completely addicted to EM bras and CH Karmelki is one of my favourite. The colour is very practical, perfect under white clothes. The quality is excellent, maybe excepting the straps which I would prefer to be a little bit wider and elegant, these are a little bit too stretchy. The CH style gives a very projected and uplifted shape, this is a very good construction. The band is rather tight, sometimes I wear it with one hook of bra extender. The cups run normal for this style.
This bra is so pretty, but I made the mistake of thinking it was European sizing and it's a cup size too big. It looks very well made, though, and I love that the straps are textured so they don't loosen over time.
This is a beautifully made and high quality bra that can still function as a basic nude bra under most shirts. I love all the little lace and button details.
This is my first Ewa Michalak bra, so I didn’t expect to get my size right on the first try, but I came pretty close. I usually wear a 30E. The band on this bra was much too tight for me, more like a small 28 than a 30. The cups do seem true to size (28F/30E), and have somewhat narrow wires. I have moderately shallow breasts, so the wires on this bra are really close to fitting properly. I think next time I will size up the cup to get the wire width I need, so the included pads are a great option if the cups gap a little (or of course for asymmetry). The open tops of the cups on this bra work wonderfully for me. It gives a great rounded, front-and-center shape.
I love the Ch cut so hard, I want them all.
It looks great on you!
Thanks! I really really like it! Too bad it's discontinued :/ I love how all of the cup is projected forward and works so well with my natural shape.
