This bra is exclusive to Bra Obsessed. I love the blue color and looked at it longingly for many months before I summoned the courage to ask Jaimie if it could be ordered as a custom PL instead of the default S, and she said yes!
MY SHAPE: Narrow, projected, short roots, close set, center full, even fullness (technically FOT but my short roots make me appear even most of the time)... Thinking I may also be low set, straps always seem barely long enough despite my short waist.
FIT: Perfect! I only own one other EM plunge (75GG - Ewa Michalak » Pl Mojito ) and I ... love the fit of that one, but I found someone selling a bunch of S style bras on Facebook so I spent a few months buying those instead. The S style Ewa Michalak bras fit me pretty well but I often wish they had just a smidge more room for my inner fullness; the PL cut embraces inner fullness. It appears to be made for people like me that have zero space between their breasts. I haven't taken the measurements for this bra yet, but the band feels right in line with all my other 75GG padded EM bras and the cups fit just like my PL Mojito. I do need to wear the cookie on my right (smaller) side, but once I do that it looks great. I wore this bra for a full 8 hours, and it was still comfortable at the end of the day. When I took it off, the red marks followed my IMF and enclosed my tissue perfectly. My comexim bras have been aggravating my rib flare recently, and some of my unlined EM bras tend to roll in that spot as well, but this one was comfortable all day long.
APPEARANCE/QUALITY: I love shades of purple/blue/green, and I'm a sucker for clothing and accessories in those shades. I fell in love with Blekitek the moment I saw it. I love to know what the names of Ewa's bras translate to in English, and "blekitek" translates to blue whiting, which looks like a small minnow-type of fish, which I thought was a strange name for lingerie... but then I tried translating Błękitek with all the special characters my US keyboard doesn't have, and it came back as just BLUE. This bra tends to look purple in photos, bordering on periwinkle blue, but in person it's a beautiful sky blue. The straps have embellishments all the way down the center, which does make it a little tricky to adjust, but they are fully adjustable with a little force. The lace has a design element that looks a bit fuzzy (see photos) - I am concerned about how durable that portion is, it seems to catch on literally everything, but only time will tell. The only thing I don't care for is the way the weave of the lace is very open near the top edge of the cup; you can see the underlying white foam pieces clearly (they're kind of shiny, like the asymmetry cookies). I'm not a huge fan of that look; I wish they'd put some white mesh behind the lace to make it look a little more finished. The visible foam looks a little cheap to me, but it's barely noticeable and honestly a very minor detraction from a lovely bra. The S style seems to come with bows at the straps (judging by photos on Bra Obsessed), mine only has the bow/jewel combo at the gore. There is a lovely little scalloped edge embellishment all the way around the top and bottom of the band, which is a nice detail that relates back to the embellishment on the straps.
I also ordered the matching briefs in my usual size 42; they run loose. The tightest part is the elastic around the waist; the leg openings are just mesh, no elastic. I'm very apple-shaped, but I think a pear-shaped person could easily size down in these particular briefs. They're not a full size too large, just on the roomy side of things since there is no elastic around the leg openings. They are made of the same light blue lace as the bra cups and a slightly darker blue mesh that matches the wings/straps.
OVERALL: A++! I am excited to own a full set that is such a lovely color and with pieces that are both incredibly comfortable. This was my first order from Bra Obsessed, and I'll be ordering from Jaimie again for sure; she was great to work with.
