This bra could be perfect if it wasn't for the horrible straps, the straps support no weight at all, they stretch and roll and cut in horribly. I wish it had straps like Panache's jasmine. The band also has this tiny bit of elastic around the bottom that doesn't stretch as much as back panel so cuts in even when it's too big. I'd rather the back panel stretch less and the under elastic stretch more. It would help it look smoother and distribute weight better.
My first Ewa Michalak bra, so I was unsure which cup size to go for and seem to have opted one size too large (probably due to my previous bra, 38K - Royce » Charlotte Nursing Bra (822) sizing smaller than it should). Despite this I feel I am more than adequately supported and feel comfortable wearing this in public. The construction seems sturdy and the bra feels very comfortable even at first wear. The padded cup feels strange to tuck away while feeding but does not pose a problem, and clips back to the strap very easily compared to most nursing bras I have worn. The centre gore seems slightly taller than in the picture, but given that I am at the higher end of the cup scale that's hardly surprising.
The bra is supportive, comfortable, and gives a very pleasing shape. I would certainly buy this again, although obviously I would size down to 85JJ next time.
I love this bra all except the straps, which are a nightmare! Am I the only one with this issue? No matter how long or shortened they are, they roll so they are so thin and dig like no tomorrow. In the 80k they did this as well. I do not care for straps that are so stretchy, I plan to replace or see on something less stretchy. Now this is not to say I need super padded straps that are extra wide, just very minimal stretch in a strap. The cups seem like they run larger then my 75KK - Ewa ...Michalak » S Pieprzyk (473) this could seem even more so because the straps stretch, and the straps are barely long enough on that one for me.
The quality overall is high not factoring the straps, although the Klik Klak nursing clips are the best and easy one-handing.. The black cotton lined bra is covered in a stretchy satin finish bathing suit like material over a thin padding that doesn't stretch, just enough to conceal prominent yet sensitive nipples. I'm hoping it will be more supportive and comfortable with minimal stretch, non-rolling straps. Most nursing bras have a huge amount of stretch and don't provide good support while being so high in the gore and straps so wide you have to forget about ever wearing anything but the highest neck tops and dresses possible. Hard enough finding them in my size let alone look nice. By far the best and only pre-made nursing bra I've come across in my size range. Please fix the straps Ewa! I want to buy a ton of these bras with better straps. Read more 182 more words
