Since my boobs have grown slightly, I have needed new bras. I bought this bra in a relative sister size since this bra looked liked it was being discontinued - no special orders allowed - and I knew this was fine since Ewa Michalak don't really do relative wire sizing between sister sizing. So I will alter the bands down to a 26 band later.
The material is really soft, and it's one of the prettiest "nude" bras I have ever come across. The projected CH shape is one that I love also, it's not a shape that you get a lot with British bras https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Beautiful and soft, simply the wrong size. Cups/wires too wide. I'm not a fan of the bra strap design, but the bra is nice otherwise. It looks as if it would give a good shape. Fit OK in the band. I like the trims!
I bought this bra pre-worn, right here on bratabase from Galactica. The fabric is very smooth and sturdy. The colour is a deep tan. The lace at the top of the cups is dainty and pretty. The trim/detailing on the straps is actually quite bulky and textured - I'm not a fan. The straps look pretty in pictures, but not so fab in person. The little bows are also a bit superfluous.
The fit of the band and straps is great. The cups, however, are very open. It fits me like a balconette, and my nipples are right on the edge of showing. Also, the tops of the cups don't pull back in, so the cups are too big for me.
This bra fits a little better than some fo the other Ewa Ch styles. The band is perfect, straps and width of cups are excellent. The only problem is I'm a tiny bit too big for the cups. BUT the next size up will have gaping. So I think it's just gonna be a a bra that I sell to seomone else!
Way too big in the cup, would need two sizes down in this. Perhaps three! Band is not bad but perhaps my usual 30 (65) would be better. Not impressed with Ewa's very inaccurate sizing information about their own bras, but it is very well made. The fabric does pull a little oddly though so there are wrinkles on the fabric between the breasts. Colour would be fairly neutral beneath clothing but is otherwise quite dull. As I said in my review of the Cappuccino I think my bottom heavy not-full-on-top breasts need a cup size down from my other-brand size in Ewa bras otherwise I don't fill out their very forward projected shape.
This bra sometimes pokes me in the armpits and requires adjustments throughout the day. If I get it on so that it sits comfortably, it remains comfortable throughout the day.
My size in most brands is 34H, so this is one size up in the band.
Note: I am writing this review in January, 2013, several months after the bra was purchased. I have given my initial review and fitting comments based on my notes about the fit of the bra near the time of purchase. Since the bra was purchased, my breasts have grown and the bra no longer fits properly. Below are my comments on the current state of the bra:
The band on this bra has not stretched significantly while I have owned it; I can still wear it on the loosest hook. I wear this bra about once every 5 days.
For me this bra was just too big, this style seems to run big in the cups. I could wear a 70D in the HP-line and in the PL-line, but not here. It's a very comfortable bra though, with Ewa Michalak-typical comfy fabric. The center gore didn't stab me and the straps were good, too. It's a nice nude bra which still manages not to look boring https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />
Beautiful bra. A little more open on top than I gathered from the pictures. I think the band is a little loose for a 70 band and in hindsight I should have gone up 1 cup size. The shape compensates for my bottom-heavy-flat-on-top boobs which I like but I get a lot of jiggling and I don't really feel secured in the cups. I have to readjust during the day. Those thing might just be due to the wrong cup size.
Otherwise the bra is comfertable and it's held up good in wash.
