This is my first EM bra, sent to me by VioletIridescence. It's a beautiful, well-made bra, with a gorgeous burgundy color and nice lace detailing. Unfortunately, I underestimated how much weight I'd lost and overestimated my size, and it's about 1 or 2 cup sizes too big for me. I fill out the bottom of the cup nicely, as it has enough immediate projection for my short-rooted, even to FoB breasts, and the wires were a good width for my narrow roots. However, the tops of the cups were very empty, though seemed to generally follow the slope of my breast, indicating to me that ...it was more of a size issue than a shape issue. I don't think I know enough about shapes yet to draw any conclusion about what shapes this bra would work for.
This was also pretty tight for a 65/30 band, stretching to only about 28 inches. My snug underbust measures 27.5 inches, and I had to use an extender on the tightest hook (basically add 1 row of hooks) for it to feel comfortable. It's definitely closer to a 28 band in my opinion.
I'll be passing this bra along but my EM bra journey continues. Read more 96 more words
Unfortunately, this bra was about one cup size too big on me and had some wrinkling on the top. Beyond that it was an amazing bra. You just can't beat the quality on the Ewa Michalak bras so it's sad that I'll be returning this one.
I'm normally not a fan of sheer cups but I wanted to at least give one from Ewa Michalak a try. I have to say that it wasn't at all itchy and looked amazing on (despite it being too big). The band felt very secure and comfortable and the lacy detail is just exquisite.
Because there isn't any padding in this one it doesn't quite give you as much volume up front as the other Ewa Michalak padded bras so that might be a good option if you're trying to squeeze into a shirt/dress that you can't normally wear (but just to be clear it's NOT a minimizer bra and your shape still looks amazing in it!).
This bra is absolutely beautiful-- elegant swirls of creme and burgundy embroidery and delicate small bows. Very "Renaissance princess" https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The HM cut is a rare and fantastic mix of immediate projection with very open-on-top cups. The way it lifts and shapes my even-to-FoT boobs into a nice round shape is unparalleled! Unfortunately, this bra runs tight in the band and stretches only to my underbust measurement (28"), so I will need at least one hook of an extender to wear it without wire distortion. The straps are wide-set, but non-irritating on my shoulders.
I was really excited about the prospects of an unlined half-cup. Sadly the fit is not as perfect as I would like but better then expected. Going into this I knew the gore was going to be super high but it didn't bother me as much as I anticipated. The band on this model runs a full band and a half tight making it impossible to wear without an extender. The straps are wide set and only half adjustable. I anticipate having to shorten the straps someday as well as the soft front part to twist up. This is an absolutely gorgeous bra though. The embroidery is lovely ...and the cups fit pretty well despite the gore. The cups are tall but I have the tissue to fill them. Sadly this gives an odd, smushed shape that's particularly noticeable under clothes. This bra was a bargain though and I do like unlined bras so I will keep this handy even though it is less then ideal. I know it sounds like I have a lot of negative things to say about this bra but I do like it. I can make it fit almost perfectly with the extender and it'll be nice layering under not so tight clothes like sweaters and things come fall. I would love if Ewa updated this style with a shorter gore and started making unlined half-cups again. Read more 124 more words
This bra was size 80f originally so I had to cut some of the band off. Reattaching the straps was quite easy, as a "pattern" I used other bra HM Finezja. At the moment bra is almost perfect fit ,it's a little bit too small on bigger, left breast - the under wire is poking a little (is too narrow). I love HM bras.
Great bra - the band is perfect for my 72cm underbust. Cup h is one size too bighttps://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Bra gives lovely round shape, more natural then padded Ewa Michalak bras. It's very comfortable - I can wear it all day..
This bra is just amazing! I love the colour. Design is adorable: the bra hasn't got only two colours (burgund and white), but there is one more, really light pink/beige (it depends on lighting), I didn't see this on promotional pictures. The center gore is 9 cm high. I don't like high center gores, but I'd forgive this bra, if it was fit. My breast doesn't look good in this bra. I think it's bra for fuller bust and thin underbust. Every non-padded bra gives me pointy shape. HM Burgund doesn't, but cup width is too narrow for me, unfortunately.
