I love this bra! The teal blue with the black looks amazing. It is a deep plunge cut and can give a lot of cleavage. It fits great with or without cookies, I will upload some photos without cookies later. This is the best fit I've gotten from an EM bra so far. Also the plunge cut kind of reminds me of the VS bras I used to wear, but this is a much better fit with narrower wires and deeper cups than any VS bra.
I'd previously avoided Ewa's PL cut, assuming it would be too wide and shallow at the wire on me with too tall cups. But but but... this is a bra I missed out on as it was discontinued prior to me finding ABTF, and it was long on my "love this and will never have it" list. I'm so over taller gores, I've gravitated towards short gores (and looser bands) lately. When I first got bras that fit I was all about super snug bands and lots of separation. I don't know if I'm becoming more sensitive with age or what lol, but all ...my 28 bands feel like they're suffocating me lately even though my measurements haven't changed, and I have been shoving cotton balls between my sternum and my balconettes. So when this popped up for sale on here, I thought well why the hell not!
Turns out it works pretty well on me! Yeah it's a little tall/big on my smaller side, but I hate using cookies so I deal with it. I don't find it slipping out of my IMF, at least not uncomfortably so, and I'm over super narrow wires too. Just because I *can* wear 4.8" wires doesn't mean I have to, nor do I want to, nor do I need my boobs THAT front and center 24/7. This bra is very comfortable, beautiful, I don't spill out the center, my boobs don't touch in the middle (which also drives me crazy), and that makes it a win in my book. Now I want the PL Lovely, the PL Dark Magenta, the SM Tattoo, and the new M cut she has out.... and I also want to win the lottery!! Read more 187 more words
This bra is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures don't do it justice. The mint with black lace overlay is both sexy and sweet. There's a beautiful black satin bow on the center gore with gem detailing. The straps are black with a smooth finish and fully adjustable. The cups are a very deep plunge and where the strap meets the cup doesn't bother my armpits at all and also has a small black satin bow. The backband is quite stretchy and I have to wear this on the tightest set of hooks. There are two rows and four columns of hooks on the backband.
*All pictures were taken with the cookies in the cups.
I recently needed to upgrade to a larger cup size due to my bust increasing in size. This bra is absolutely lovely! This bra fits very well with nice narrow under wires and plenty of projection. Most of this review will be a comparison between the 65FF and 65G.
In this size 65G the side wings are made out of an opaque sturdy stretch fabric as opposed to the sheer doubled up fabric of the 65FF. I find this works much better and provides a much smoother fit along the back band. The 65G also has wider elastic on the straps vs the 65FF. I also find in comparison the back band on the 65G is shorter than the 65FF and I can wear this on the loosest set of hooks with a firm fit. This 65G has four columns and two rows of hooks on the backband.

I've worn this bra all day and I have many good things to say about it.
First off, I was a tiny bit concerned that 65E would be too small. Ewa's calculators generally give me 70D/70DD, so for me, I think her calculator mostly works. So far I'm assuming my size range is safest using her calculators, and I've read a lot of others who wear bigger sizes having issues with it.
With that said, between uncertainty about my size and what I've heard about inconsistencies, I was really concerned about ordering directly from EM's site. With what I received, I would definitely order again.
I decided on 65E in this ...and Paris Paris (that's actually what was left), thinking, it'd be better to wear an extender than have a band that's possibly too big. I'm happy with my decision, because this in 70DD would have been...meh. Paris as well.
I did order a 65F in Kleksik and I'm not super fond of the fit. I think if I'd size up in this it would only work with the pads. In the photos I've added, I kept the pads in and there's very minor quad when I move my shoulders a certain way, mostly due to the cups being a tiny bit too far apart. Otherwise, I'm not bothered by it at all and I really enjoy the fit. I am positive that taking the pads out would make the quad stop altogether.
Cups are up front and centered, wires are very narrow. This bra is heaven for my boobs.
Padding is similar to my Comexims, maybe a tad more stiff but nothing like...Deco-esque, or old VS pushup, moulded -stiff.
Band is decently stretchy. It's un/fortunate, but today after receiving my Ewas, I can confirm what a lot of other people are saying about their sizes and bras usually being somewhat inconsistent. I saw in reviews that this band is stretchy, and it is, but mine isn't overly so. I'd say it stretches to 29", 30" max. I lucked out.
The thong is stretchy, thankfully since at one point I changed my order to a 36, and then changed it again to 38, but received the 36. It fits perfectly. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
The shape I get from this bra isn't the same as my Lawenda Ch(I guess that's what's called "cakes on a plate"?), but it is actually very similar. With the pads, I'm pushed up and get perfect amount of cleavage. That is, not over done.
Straps are fully adjustable and comfortable. Cups are lined with, I believe just a simple but soft cotton. I forgot I was wearing this a few times today, which is always nice.
Band is a stretchy, but I feel, higher quality, soft/silky mesh. I wanted to talk about that material on the thong also, and bring up something I notice about Ewa/Comexim thongs as opposed to other thongs I've bought from stores in the US- especially mesh or lace.
If you're not a believer in thongs simply because of their comfort level as opposed to appearance, give a Polish thong a try. Idk if anyone agrees, but so far they don't seem to use thin, scratchy/rough material, or tight elastic in the bum area as I've experienced with many VS and department store thongs. G-strings are pretty much what I stick to from US stores, in a size up to make sure any elastic isn't cutting me because whydeargodno.
The Ewa and Comexim bottoms I have are..maybe oddly long-ish, but they don't ride up, scratch or cut me. I think the design and fabrics they use are very common sense and I, and my body, appreciate it.
And that's all the semi weird talk.
I find the band supportive enough in my size, and comfortable.
Appearance-wise, the cups are a light teal (?), with black (cute)floral lace overlay, a mesh band, small black strap bows, lighter blue inner cups, and a bigger black center bow with rhinestones in a circular pattern, surrounding blue ribbon in the center of the black bow.
My boyfriend said it made him want to wear a tuxedo, so uh. Fancy? Haha. I guess it's a little "fancy". I was thinking chic, but the floral lace is really cute, so it's not totally fancy/mature/whateveridk.
The thong is the silky-ish mesh in the back and hips, with the light teal in the center and the same rhinestones in a circular pattern in the center top.
The shape the bra gives is rounded, projected, and uplifted as mentioned.
So far, comfort and appearance get 10/10 from me. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> it's not a perfect fit due to the cup separation (the wires touch, but the actual cups are a little far apart. Have a feeling I may do better with an S but I think they start at 65F-which I think would only work in unlined :, ( ), but other than that..fit is 9/10.
So pretty much. Another perfect bra. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I'd recommend this to anyone needing narrow wires. These seem the perfect width, so I imagine they're pretty narrow indeed. xD Someone needing projection , and tbh, I feel like this bra could work with many different shapes. I'm shallower on top, have long roots, and have an even shape with tissue mostly all directly behind the nipple ">", and this still gives me a round uplifted shape. My left side is bigger and leaning more towards FoT, right side smaller/more FoB, and I do good with most FoB friendly bras. I don't think I'd recommend for super FoT, unless you consider sizing up perhaps because I feel like the cups are somewhat closed on top. Not positive, but those are my nooby opinions. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":p" />
Edit: Also wanted to note that I didn't experience any issues with strap placement, but I also have slightly broad shoulders. I think this should be ok unless you have much narrower shoulders. I will measure the distance shortly. Read more 880 more words
It fits just like my other pl (Zlote Oko) I received. Nice centered shape due to the nice narrow wires. I am not sure why but the gore on this one bothers me slightly more, maybe because the band is tighter. I like the lace overlay but I not really fond of the baby blue color. I took the pictures of this bra with the inserts which add a nice boost creating cakes on plate cleavage. With the insert the bra is sightly to small, so they are only for special events. I wish EM had more pl styles or the 3DM came in larger sizes.
This is a gorgeous bra. I need to put a pad in the right side to correct assimitry. The wire on the right side also digs in under my arm for some unknown reason. I feel I want more cup coverage tho. The band is too tight and I am using an extender. I still haven't found my perfect bra. I think my Anna Pardal has a smaller underwire? Will continue to try other brands and styles.
Ewa Michalak only makes my proper band size as a custom order so I purchased this bra one band size up with the intention of altering it. This is the first bra I’ve purchased from Ewa Michalak and I struggled to figure out exactly what size to order. I think I would have had more success with this bra if I had purchased it in a 70J and then shortened the band or probably a 65JJ if I custom ordered it.
This bra is very beautiful and I’d love to buy it in another size, but it just doesn’t fit me correctly enough to justify trying to alter more ...than the band with my limited sewing ability. The underwires are a bit too wide (though they are much better than the rest of the brands I’ve tried so far!), the band is of course too big (which is obviously my fault) and the shoulder straps are a bit too far apart which makes it sit funny on me (I think this is what is causing the gaping in the photos). Still though, It’s definitely a high quality bra and would fit someone else very well! Read more 86 more words
After several attempts of making EM's PL bras work for me, I think this one is as good as it gets.
As mentioned in earlier reviews, the band is definitely quite stretchy in this. Not as stretchy as my 70HH - Ewa Michalak » S Siódme Niebo , in that I need to size down in the band, but definitely not on par with other EM PLs, which I've found to run the most tight.
- uplifted shape - projection like whoa - comfy, but firm wires (as great as S model bras fit on me, the wires can be painful on the rib-cage by end of ...day) - probably as close to cleavage as is possible for my soft tissue - b-e-a-utiful teal color on this baby - no straps or wires threatening my armpits at all
- boobs don't feel super secure and locked in, so I continually check to make sure I'm contained in the boob holder - cups fold out a bit, which distorts shape (remedied with a tight tank top/cami to smooth things out, which I always wear under clothes anyway) - gaping on smaller side
I'm not very familiar with PL styles, so I'm unsure if I should consider this my PL size. The most recent PL I tried was 75HH - Ewa Michalak » Pl Słowianki (506) , and the band was too tight and my boobs leapt from it after 15 min of wear. So either fit has improved, or this one is an anomaly (or maybe some combo of both?).
I think if I get used to the feeling such a low gore provides, I will get a lot of use with this. I've found it fits best after a couple hours of wear when my girls settle properly into the cups.
