First foray into Ewa Michalak! Bought used from another user here. The quality is great and the materials are lovely. This is a beautiful bra. The cut works well for FoB breasts like mine and the wires are sufficiently narrow.
When I got this bra and put it on, I was confused to find that one of the cups seemed to fit well and the other seemed too big. I usually don't see a significant asymmetry between my breasts. Then I noticed that the smaller cup had been altered, very subtly, to remove some material. After some agonizing, I decided to make the symmetric alteration and now the fit is pretty good on both sides. However, I would consider the unaltered bra to be one cup size too big. Future EM bras will be 65DD...
This bra is gorgeous. As one of Ewa's older styles, the band is a bit looser than her newer ones. Fits very true to size for a HM (ie, is roughly equivalent to a padded 65F). Too big for me sadly (I wear a 65E).
this was my first foray into EM bras, and i bought it quite a while ago. i havent ever worn it a full day, ive just been too lazy to review it its gorgeous, but sadly not right for me.
the first and most glaring issue- the gore, dear god the gore! i cant do these high, hard gores. i feel like as soon as i have it on, without the straps even put on, its already painful. in fact, as i type this review, ive already had to go stuff something between me and the gore so i dont rip the damn thing ...off my body and chuck it accross the room. theres no extra channel space either, so no where to shove the gore. im not sure if the band is just too tight or what (its pretty snug) but using an extender doesnt make it less sternum puncturing, so it might just be me.
teh badn is quite snug, not painful but probably could do with a single row of the extender to not warp things. the wire width feels fine, no digging or extra space. the straps are too far apart, and any movement of my arms makes them scrape and dig, so that's a definite no go. even sitting straight with my shoulders back, the cups gape a small bit, so the straps moving definitely exacerbate that. i cant tell if the cup is too deep or just too open, but i think its just too open since everything but that top edge fits fine. its a damn shame, because vertical seam bras looked like theyd be the perfect thing for me, and theyre so hard to find! this lovely bra will be off to find a new home soon, and i'll be back on the hunt!
