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 (http://www.investinyourchest.co.uk/ewa-michalak-revisited). 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.
