I received this bra from Sonya as a swap for my S Syrena a little while ago, and I finally got a chance to wear it for a full day recently. The biggest surprise to me was the band. I was a little unsure if this band would be too big for me, as I prefer something that only stretches to around 26-26.5". Having said that, I can wear this bra on the second set of hooks and it is perfectly secure and comfortable. I think this is utterly ridiculous, considering it's a "30 band", but it works in my favour. So for y'all who ... are reading up on and considering the M cut, just know that you should sister size up at least one, if not two band sizes. Other than that, it fits the same as my M Chaberek; narrow-medium wire width, and lots of immediate and apex projection. It gives me quite a projected silhouette, which I'm not as much a fan of these days (I prefer a more minimized and close-to-the-chest silhouette), but it works well for when I want that look. The only slight quibble I have with it is that the ribbon that is sewn over the horizontal cup seam seems to give the cup itself a little bit of "quad-boob", but it's not severe enough for me to be bothered.
Overall, I'm quite happy with this trade, as I love the look of Syrena, but I just didn't wear my S anymore because it's so big for my frame. The M works much better for me, and is more in proportion with my figure.

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.

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. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />

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.
