This is the second bra I received from jlcl119, along with my BM Fluo. Thank you! The Lato is one of the bras I remember being on Ewa's website when I first discovered them (and apparently that was SS2012, so it's been 7 years now... holy moly), so I of course had to get my hands on it when I saw it listed, despite it being two band sizes too large.
As for the appearance, I think it's super cute. The cups and band are made of a satiny floral print on a beige base with a thin blue and beige lacey trim on the ... top of the cups, and matching blue bows at the gore and straps. The front half of the straps are made of the same patterned floral fabric. As for the fit, it's not ideal, and I'm definitely considering passing it on to someone else. The band is obviously too big, which I expected, but the cups are a tad shallow at the apex, and the gore doesn't tack on me. When I press the gore onto my sternum, I do get a fair amount of quadboob happening. I don't think the cups have quite enough depth for me, and I think the poor fit would become exacerbated if I shortened the band to a proper length for me. I do feel like I'm on the larger end of the spectrum for my usual size right now, so I can't say for sure whether it would fit better if I lost a little volume or not.
Really, my only reason for keeping this bra would be because the matching thong is so damn cute and fits me so well! I'm torn on whether to keep the set together for posterity (it is seven years old after all, so the new owner wouldn't be able to find matching bottoms anywhere if that's something they would want) or to separate the two by selling the bra and keeping the thong for myself. Then again, the thong is a size 34(6) (basically an XS), so maybe they wouldn't fit the new owner anyway. Argh!
Anyway, super cute, doesn't really fit me, thankful for the opportunity to have tried it lol.

Unfortunately, this bra runs small in the cup so it doesn't really fit me very well.This was true of my 65E as well. I was hoping it was just that bra but perhaps it's an issue with Lato in general.
Lato is pretty old at this point. I got this one from another user who I'm sure got it from yet another person, so it's been well loved and it's still in excellent shape.
As for the bra itself, it has wonderfully narrow and comfortable wires. The straps are only half adjustable, which presents issues for me most of the time, but these ones are also pretty short so I ... have no trouble with them. The materials are soft and the band is comfortable since the too small cups takes up the extra looseness I would otherwise experience with it.
When CHPs are too small for me they crush my breasts and I feel really confined, so for now this sits lonely in my drawer. I've worn it once or twice when all my other bras are dirty but it's an awful look on me and it isn't terribly comfortable.
In reality, I should relist it here but Lato is one of my favorite patterns ever and I was heartbroken when I had to sell my other one. I'm going to save this one for now just in case, even though my size doesn't actually fluctuate very much.

As someone who is: narrow, projected, very FOB, very center-heavy, widely-spaced, splayed, low-set, and short rooted, this bra is my daily workhorse. I adore this bra and I would be lost without it. It fits perfectly for my difficult shape! I get a little bit of gapping on my smaller side and I think the gore could be a smidge wider for me, especially considering my incredible center-fullness. My only complaint is that it is VERY visible underneath clothing, but I am very sad that the manufacturer doesn't make this particular version of the CHP anymore because it's absolutely a gem.

Ewa Michalak bras are my dream fit.
I ordered this bra in a 32E (last one on sale), despite the fact I normally order 30F (65F) in Ewa Michalak bras and 28FF in Freya soft cup bras. I was a bit concerned because of the larger band, but it actually fits beautifully.since Ewa bands are so tight. I'd say that this bra's band is the equivalent to a 30" Freya band, while the 30F (65F) Ewa bras are more equivalent to the 28FF Freya bands.
I have worn this bra several times since receiving it and have had no problems with the band riding up or the cups sagging ... -- the normal issues related with an excessively large band. The band has also not stretched out much compared to my Freya bras that seem to gain 1-2" within a week or two of wear.
The cups fit great -- just like my Ch 30F EM cups -- and are a flattering height. It also gives me a healthy amount of beautiful cleavage without looking like I am wearing a plunge bra. It also lifts me up at the root and gives me a bit of a rounded shape, which I love.
The stretchy, adjustable straps also stay very snug and comfortable. I'd say the Ch Lato actually has more comfortable straps than most other bras I own -- they're very smooth and soft.
I also normally have issues with the straps rubbing against my arms (I have very narrow shoulders), especially in a band a bit bigger than usual. Not with Ewa Michalak bras! Just like the other EM bras I own, this one also doesn't scrub the sides of my arms, which is amazing!
I honestly have no cons with this bra unless I'm being EXTREMELY picky, such as the detailing at the top of the cups that can be seen through thin shirts.

Such a gorgeous pattern. I love the turquoise accents.
It’s really cute and I looked at it too, but knew that it would not fit. I am sorry it’s not an ideal fit for you.
This floral pattern is so pretty. Sorry it did not work.
That's really cute, sorry it didn't work.
That's really cute, sorry it didn't work.
Love these colors, thanks for the good review.
It's so pretty and I wish it fit you better, hell I wish it fit *me* better!
If you have another bra that thong would work with I'd encourage you to keep it, it's so pretty and EM 34s are a rarity :)
Weeping. I am weeping. That bra is gorgeous AND you have a matching thong in XS?! She won't make me bottoms in xS. If that bra was my size, I'd be begging you for it. I would list the bra and if the purchaser asked about matching pants, and is willing to pay, then you may have to sell as the set. But many people don't care or won't fit an XS anyway.
