    Didn't fit

    Last thing's first: Narrow wires I can handle, because all I have to do is some bending and sacrifice some of the projection (which this bra can definitely afford). But too close-together cups? What do you do for that? I'm not sure it's possible to change it.
    ---------

    I did notice, before I bought this, that Ewa bras seem to be really projected. I always believed my breasts were fairly projected, so I thought it would be a good fit. I was sort of wrong.

    Objectively, the measurements for this bra indicated that it would be a good fit. Long wires (which I thought meant wide wires), 11" depth, open ... at the top. It all seemed good. But when it's on, there are several big issues. I would say this bra is slightly too projected for me. Also, the cups are way too close together for my wider-set breasts. This causes an interesting effect. I fill out the tops perfectly, I fill out the sides perfectly, yet I don't fill out the parts of the cups closest to the gore, resulting in gaping. Another issue is that these wires are long, but not necessarily wide. I have to constantly readjust to keep my tissue inside the cups, which also contributes to the weird inner gaping. Have to say this has never happened to me before and this is the first issue I've ever had with a bra being this close together...

    And so there goes $45...

    • Theres not really much you can do about a too narrow gore :( You can always make something too big smaller, but not something too small, bigger (here the width of the gore). Except bra band I suppose, but that is adding fabric (an extender) to it.

      It would take lots of patience and some *very* careful sewing, but I think it could be possible. cut the gore down then center, add a bit more fabrics to each side if needed, and attach a front closure. I wouldn't try it on a loved bra though, best to experiment on dead ones. I'd been thinking about it because my hubby would get a kick out of a front hook bra (and I'd still have the adjustability with the hooks in the back) but I'm not finding front closures thin enough for my super close boobs.

      I considered adding fabric to the gore, but on an Ewa bra in such good condition I think it would ruin it. I posted a listing on Reddit and to my surprise it sold within an hour. Luckily I recouped 75% of what I spent.

    Didn't fit

    bought this on the FC bra swapping group, as NWOT or worn and washed once, not completely sure on that one (ive forgotten, sorry!). ive been excitedly tracking this in the mail, and it arrived today! sadly it doesn't fit https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> while the band feels fine on the loosest hook (snug but not uncomfortable), the cups are just way too big. i had been afraid of that, since it was a whole cup size up from my 80F - Ewa Michalak » Hm Szarak (140), which fit pretty well aside from the band being a hair too tight without ... an extender.

    pluses: 3 hooks, a lower gore than my HM models, suuuper soft fabric, thick comfortable straps. its also beautiful, with a a soft mauve-y satin cup and band with lace edging on the cups. there's this pretty ribbon bit on the band near the wing, and pale pink bows on the gore and straps connector. the material of the band feels very sturdy and thicker than my freya half cups, something i really appreciate.

    minus: cups is far too large or projected. i dont know if they are simply too deep, or if they are too open on the top, but there is a ton of space. the cup is 6.5 inches wide, so probably a good half an inch too wide for me. the cup depth seems about right, 11 (edited, shouldve said 11. just rechecked it for a buyer, its 11 solid) inches, so i think its probably a combo of too much volume (because its a wider cup) and the shape being too open. the straps also feel too wide, and cut into my underarm. its a shame, i love the looks of this bra! and i paid much more than im usually comfortable with when it comes to bras i cant return- boo. im sure someone else will get to love it though!
