The inside of the cups is horridly sloppy, with those black ugly stitches out in the open like nobody's business. I love the newspaper print and overall design of this bra, it's very unique - but unfortunately the fit isn't great. Which is weird, because other CHP's in the same size are perfect. The straps are too-wide set, a problem which I never ever encountered in any bra, be it Ewa's CHP or any other. This fucks up the fit and comfort of this bra for me. I still wear it occasionally because it's so pretty, but can't manage to keep it on more than a couple hours. I should sell it on really, but I'm sentimental and I like pretty things.
I would estimate that this is similar to a UK 36G. Compared to other CHPs I've tried, it runs tighter in the band and bigger (taller) in the cups. While the bigger cups don't cause any pain or unsightly wrinkles, I don't get the typical padded halfcup effect of pushing up and to the front.
The triangle that attaches the straps to the cups (see detail photo) is a little uncomfortable when it rubs on your skin.
I really really want to love this bra. It is adorable, and supportive, and comfortable. It fits me almost perfectly. But the "almost" is pretty disappointing for me. It is slightly snug in the band on me, but it feels okay when I put it on. But the longer I wear it, the more the band starts to pinch. By the end of the day, I have to keep running my finger under it to try and alleviate the discomfort, and I have deep red marks every day I wear it. I don't know if it's because I'm fat, or because the elastic ...edging is poorly designed, or both, (I tend to think both) but it is a bit sad. I would definitely buy another Ewa Michalak bra, but I would also make VERY sure that it didn't have the two narrow bands of elastic before I did. Otherwise, the bra has been great. It fits well, holds my boobs EXACTLY where they should be, and has straps that don't slip down. The wires are exactly the right shape. It is also really durable. I have had it for three months, and it has not stretched out at all. My roommate even put it through the drier accidentally, and while some of the decorations and trim curl oddly now when I'm not wearing it, the fit is still exactly the same! I would definitely reccommend this to a person with a similar breast shape to me, especially if they have less sensitive skin than me. Read more 160 more words
This is a gorgeous bra and it works well for my close set boobs. The only issue I had was the piece of fabric that connected the strap to the cup. I took that off and re-attached the strap directly to the bra. I think it gives better support and doesn't rub against my skin. Like all EM bras this one is right but with an extender it's fine.
I bought this bra in this size because my CH bras in 65G were now too small, and the S bras I had bought in 65GG were a good fit, but this bra is just too much too big for me to wear. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":-(" /> The wires are wider than I'm used to in EM bras, so the straps rub under my arms, and I have nowhere near enough upper fullness to fill it out, so the cup wrinkles to the point where I think it's visible under my clothes. I really wish this one worked for me, but I think I'd need it at least one cup size smaller.
I got this size as I'd heard that the Gazeta ran with a tight band and big cups. Nope, this fits exactly like a 70D should on my normal 65E/60F breasts: too small in the cup and too loose in the band. I'll probably sell this.
Dude. I totally love this bra. I fell in love with the pattern FOREVER ago. I used to work on my high school's newspaper and then got my degree in English lit. This print was right up my alley. Like I've said in other reviews, I'm not much of a fan of Ewa's customer service and extra VAT that they have been charging as of late, so I definitely prefer to purchase from other bratabasers.
That said, this bra is awesome. The details are really nice, and it gives me a fantastic shape. I'm not sure which I love more-the Gazeta or the Rokoko. Both give me ...awesome looking boobs too, which is great. My husband is a big fan of them, though he thinks the print on the Gazeta is silly.
But what does he know. He's a dude. Right now the Gazeta wins in that I can wear it after struggling to FINALLY get those darn straps to move. I'd read someone else's review saying the straps were only half adjustable, but I got it to fully adjust. Necessary for someone who is short, short waisted, and has high set breasts. Annoyingly, the Rokoko is only half adjustable, so I can't wear it til my mom (yay mom!) fixes it for me.
Anyway, love this bra, love all of the Ewa's I've tried so far, and I highly recommend them. You know, just as long as you're not dealing with the actual company. Much better that way. I just wish more people my mom's size would put some bras up for sale! It's a lot to ask for, considering they have to be custom made, but a gal can hope! Read more 174 more words
I was very enthusiastic about this bra when I ordered it, and really hoped it would fit, but unfortunately it didn't.
Comfort-wise, it was fairly disappointing - the ribbon underneath the cups was very scratchy, even as I only tried on the bra. The way this ribbon was sewn to the cups was also weird - it wasn't a continuous seam, but rather periodic short very thick seams, like the ones you have under coat buttons. Those things pressing on the skin are not very comfortable..
One thing that could be useful for those who need very close set cups was that in the gore, the wires from ...the two cups were overlapping.
I was also not so thrilled to see the style in person - in the photos it looked interesting and cute, with the pattern, the hearts, the shiny dots and everything. But in person, it just seemed like too much - don't get me wrong, the quality was great, as expected from EM. All the details were pretty and well made. But I would have liked to see maybe only the little hearts on a plain black style, or only the newspaper print as swimwear. Read more 91 more words
