    Used to fit

    This is the first time I've bought a bra from Ewa Michalak and the experience is a good one. The bra itself is great, I bought it because I'm kind of looking for a nude bra to wear under thinner white t-shirts.

    It's a pretty basic balconette bra with some nice touches. The straps are fully adjustable and have nice detailing as well as the top edges of the cups. What makes this different from bras I've tried so far is that the seams run vertically on the cups, and there are 4 rows of eyes on the closure.

    In terms of fit, it fit me pretty ... well, although I have a tiny bit of gaping on my larger side which is strange. It gave a really rounded shape which I'm not at all used to considering all my seamed bras thus far have given me an uplifted, but more natural shape.

    It did fail my thin white t-shirt test since I was able to see all the seams and also the top edge of the cup. I'll be saving this bra for looser fitting cotton blouses. One thing I really didn't like was the straps. Although the detailing is really pretty, it made it really difficult to adjust the straps.

    Note on Ewa Sizing:
    I've heard that Ewa Michalak bras fit tighter in the band than most bras, and many have suggested sizing up. Cheryl from Invest in Your Chest mentioned in her review that the 65F fits like a Freya 28F ( I basically followed her lead and ordered a 65F and 65FF both to try since I've fitted 28 in Freyas in the past, and the band (for this model anyway) fits great.

    • How does this size compare to a 30DDD? Is it the same or is the F cup the same as a DDDD cup? The cup depth measurement of 8.9" would suggest this is the same as a USA G/DDDD. I've been contemplating ordering this bra but I don't use UK sizing since it's not the same as far as cup letter goes (E.M. never got back to me regarding their size conversion =/ ) If I may give an example...if a Freya Deco fits me on the smallest hook tightly in a 28F/G (DDDD), what would that be with this bra?

    • I generally don't use US sizing because I generally buy British brand bras, so I'll do my best to compare. Since a US G = US DDDD then I'm assuming a US F = US DDD. Judging by the size chart here a US F = UK E and US G = UK F. I currently do not own any bras in UK 30E/US 30F/US 30DDD that fit correctly. This particular size fits a bit narrower than the 65FF, but I haven't actually worn it out and about so I will update my review when I do so.

      As for the band size itself. Of all the Freya bras I've owned, I've always had the 28 band size fit me on the loosest hook, and this bra fits me on the loosest hook at band size 65. If you're on the tightest hook (I'm assuming brand new and not worn down to the tightest hook), you may need to go a band size down. I've heard Deco fits bigger in the cup than most Freya bras as well, and since I don't own any Deco bras it's hard for me to judge which size you should get. What I would recommend is find your UK size and order some bras using that size (it'll show UK sizing when you change the language to English), and a couple other sizes in that range. The reality is the only way to figure out if something fits is to try it on. If something doesn't fit, you can always return it.

      Oh, I also wanted to note that it's possible to get a band size under UK 28/EU 60, but it needs to be special ordered and there's no return on those bras. I also think it takes about a month to make the bra as well.

      I really hope that helps.

    • I should probably clarify, by "I currently do not own any bras in UK 30E/US 30F/US 30DDD that fit correctly.", I mean that that size is too small for me thus far.
