I'm still a rookie, so take my observations with a grain of salt. 😊
My personal negatives : - The gore keeps moving on top of my breast tissue, I can't even get it to stay in my IMF for a minute. The rest of the underwire stays in place and the band is okay as well. I don't know if that's a cup seperation issue or a gore placement/height problem. I'm pretty sure I have inner fullness and close-set breasts, so that makes this tricky. - Also the straps are placed a little too far apart. I have to keep a very good posture or my shoulder push against the ...straps which distorts the cups and causes gaping.
Overall it's still one of my better fitting bras since I have the gore thing in all my other bras too, but this band is a little tighter and more comfortable throughout the day. It's also very pretty. I have to wear it on the third/second to last hook though, so I might sister size down next time, but I'm held back a little because the straps might be even further apart and of course the wires would be wider as well (right?). I was actually advised by Ewa's employee to size up because this model runs tight, but I think I could have gotten my usual band size of 28/60, since I'm technically a 26/55.
I hope this review is useful and I did it right. 😊 Read more 134 more words
This bra is beautiful, comfortable, and fits well. I'm not sure if I like the pink bows, but the blue/green fabric is gorgeous. The band runs small, of which I was aware and actually wanted. The straps are easily adjusted. As with most EM bras, the straps are very wide-set, which results in them ending up in the front of my armpits. The cups are slightly wider than I need as well. I think a 60FF would be an even better fit for me. I so love the cookie pockets that come standard with EM bras. It improves the fit immensely for me as I have close to a cup size difference between breasts.
This bra was such a disappointment for me. Based on my experience with the M cut in a 65E, I thought this would be perfect. Going up a cup completely changed the fit for me. I had gaping and quadding in the same cup, the cups were taller, and it overall made me unhappy. I wore this for about 7 hours to see if I could ignore any issues or if they would magically resolve and they did not (of course). I kept looking down my shirt to make sure I wasn't falling out on my left side. That isn't something I want to do constantly, so this bra has found a new home and I'm keeping the S.
For a bra that is supposed to be rather shallow, there is awesome immediate projection. This is a good compromise between the S (which I find too tall) and the 3D (which I find too shallow). The shape is nice and round with low profile cups and an ultra low gore. The cups are too small for me and I'll be reordering in a 65F.
Well, the bra looks nice, all details are really well made and so on. I took 70DD as this is my usual size in EM when getting 3d and CH/CHP. I found this one running tight in the band and in the cups, I would say is more as 65DD than 70DD - even if the measurement are more on the 70dd side, the bra is just smaller. If I will ever try it again, will go for 70E.
The M cut is one of the only plunges that fits my short roots and immediate projection decently. Usually plunges are way too tall for me and gape at the top. It also gives nice cleavage, which usually doesn't happen with how far apart my breasts are spaced.
As others have said, this is a beautiful color combination. Some have called it a mermaid bra, even my husband who doesn't read any bra websites.
When this bra appeared in the sale section on bratabase I could not resist. I usually wear padded Ewas in 65D with one or two hooks of extender but I heard this model to be very tight, so I gave the sister size a try. It works out fine, the band is stable on the loosest hook and feels rather tight than loose. I definitely recommend to go for the bigger band in this model. Cupwise as always for Ewa bras, the bra fits my high set FOB breasts very well. It seems to be slightly smaller than M Magique and does not show up that easy when wearing low ...cut tops. As Magique this is the Ewa bra that gives my breasts the smallest amount of push but the most depth seen from the side. I prefer wearing this style with pullovers or to work rather than summer tops. In terms of comfort I really like the M cut. There is no tendency to cut in my breast muscle which is a high risk on Ewas other models when I go to 70 bands. The design is absolutely beautiful. I eyed on this bra since it was released but I could never bring myself to buying it (style and I am rather sad that Ewas green bra looks rather blue) but I am really happy that I could get it here for a reasonable price.

This is another Ewa Michalak bra that has an annoyingly tight band. It is under 28" stretched, without distorting the cups. I wish this company's 65 bands would be consistently tight, consistently true to size, like my preferred 30" stretched, or consistently anything. I could wear an extender, but I shouldn't have to. I have enough bras I can wear without an extender that I don't reach for overly tight bras like the M Syrena.
Other problems with this bra stem from the cut itself. The M cut was marketed as bringing the breasts even more front and center than her 3D or PL bras. I suppose this is ...true for me. However, the fit is otherwise subpar. I altered the straps to be closer together in front. They still don't feel as comfortable as those of my dozen or so 3Ds or my two PLs. If I look at the back view, the straps veer outward, toward the sides of my body, rather than going straight down or drawing closer together where the hooks and eyes are. If I wore an extender with the M Syrena, this would make the straps widen even more in back.
Another feature I dislike in the M cut is the low wings. I want higher wings in Ewa Michalak bras, not lower. I would be happy if all my 3Ds had an inch or two extra height in the wings. I think my PLs are a little better for me in this regard.
I do admire the M Syrena's looks. The blue and green coloring evokes mermaids and peacocks. The gore is just about short enough for me. The cups are, as promised, low-coverage. I welcome these features. They do not, however, outweigh the discomfort and suboptimal appearance caused by the M cut's differences from 3D and PL. I would've returned this bra, but it costs $20 US to ship a bra back to Poland.
It looks like this isn't a 100% technical fit, but I'm pretty much in love with this bra. The thing I'm the most bummed about (but knew before buying - totally on me) is that Ewa sent it out to the first owner with a big defect . . the left ribbon was sewn far too tightly. Even with an attempted fix it's too tight on the cup. It doesn't effect how the cup feels since attempted fix and seems to only effect the outside of the cup and the profile. (edit - it does make the cup smaller) It looks awful under almost every shirt of mine, ...even the ones that hide the regular detailing.
Anyhow, this is a tight band. Possibly a 26 or very close to it on the loosest hook. Gorgeous design. Quality materials that should make it harder to love the Syrena to death. 4 rows of hooks is a truely great touch on Ewa's.
The wires are a bit wide for me and will start to bite in after a full day (and do hurt a bit if I fall asleep in it. Pretty sure there's some user error in there though . . .and it's still better than Cleo gores) The low gore will start to make the skin under the top/right above itch a bit too - I think it somehow manages to shift around on my chest a bit. Or maybe boob sweat? It tacks fully and leaves lines from fitting snugly in to place. Anyhow, all this tends to come after hours of wear and I haven't had any problem wearing it out for my busy days.
I think it fits TTS, but my other two ewas are too small and too large. The straps are wider than I would like, but my broad shoulders save the day in conjunction with the straps not shifting around (a pleasant surprise). It also gives fantastic uplift, the kind I've always wanted but not been able to get.
Otherwise? It's gorgeous (on me!), it's comfortable and it FITS ME. I wish I felt comfortable purchasing from EM, as I would love to own more of the company's bras and this was on my radar since it's release. Until then, I'll keep lurking here, BraSwap and perpetually plan a Comexim order.
The band on this runs very tight, more like a 26 maybe 24, so you may want to band size up if you are a true 28. I'd say the wire width is average, it's a little too wide for my narrow roots but not too bad. It is also somewhat closed on top, I have even fullness and tall roots and found it to still fit despite this. If you are very FOT, it might not work though. It's also somewhat projected. I bought this in a swap, so I don't know if there was customization to add this, but mine came with removable cookies and cookie pockets.
