I have a wide root and shallow boobs. I do need flat cups but not extraordinary wide wires. I almost don't have any volume on top.
The bra has wide harder wires which don't extend while wearing. The cup is quite shallow and open on top. Both are true to size reagarding to the Ewa-System. I usually wear 28DD/30D in british sizes but 65C fits me best at Ewa.
I have very shallow, slightly conical/tubular breasts with a wide root.
The band on this bra is a bit on the tighter side. Unstretched I measured it at 22", and fully stretched out at 28.5", so it's a bit tight on my 28-29" rib cage (though not quite as bad as my HP Ulis). I think that if I wear it with an extender though, it'll be right about perfect. The bra seems to be well-constructed and is very sturdy. Even with a lot of lace and embroidery, there are no loose threads.
The straps are very nice. They're stretchy but not too stretchy. They're a bit on the wider ...side, which is rare in my size range. There's also these little loopy bits on the edges of the straps. This makes it very difficult to adjust the strap length; on the other hand, once the length is set, it does not appear to slip at all.
The cups are near perfect for me. They're very shallow, they have an open edge, and they're fairly wide. I could stand for them to be about half an inch wider, but really, these work fine.
My biggest problem right now is that the gore digs into my sternum, which is something I'd never before encountered with a low gore. At this band tightness, I'd almost prefer the gore to be about half an inch to an inch taller. I think that it will stop digging once the band stretches out a bit (or I get an extender).
This is a very pretty bra. The black/pink contrast is fun and funky. I like the small pink silk details here and there.
This was the first @Ewa Michalak bra I purchased, before I was familiar with the fit of this brand. I wear a 30H or 32GG in most British bras (@Freya, @Fantasie, @Panache), but I found this 30H band incredibly tight. Even with an extender, I found this bra hurt my ribs. I also found the cup shallow, as I was pillowing over the top of the bra, and the wires were felt a bit narrow on my somewhat broad breasts. I think this bra would had been great in a cup and band size up (the 32H).
This is one comfortable bra! Soft on the inside, no poking or itching anywhere. The band runs snug but not enough to downsize. Cups run a bit small, I could have gone with an FF I think....but I'm breastfeeding so my size fluctuates and this fits perfectly half the time and I spill over a bit the other half. It is the opposite of the east/west look and in profile very rounded. Under a shirt would almost call it minimizing. Also very lifted. I wouldn't go running in this bra as it seems I could bounce out the top but it's ...super easy to breastfeed in because of that. Overall I am very impressed with the fit and quality of this bra. It was marked down quite a bit which is why I purchased....I really hate the gaudy colors.
Edited: The band has stretched enough so I can wear this on the tightest hook. I would order a 28 if i bought it again. And the cups are definately a size too small for me, I much prefer the fit of the FF I just got. Read more 89 more words
