This was my first Ewa Michalak, and when I tried it on, I thought I hit the jackpot on the first try. No gaping! Tacking gore! Well-made and beautiful! The shape it gave me, however, was an upside-down 7. I didn't like the pointy-ness at all. And by the end of the day, I was feeling like my sides were being gripped by talons. The outer side of the wire looked like it was sitting on breast tissue on my larger side. I think, sadly, that the root on that side is just too wide for Polish bras.
I love the lower center gore, it doesnt dig into my breasts at all. I get some gapping on my smaller side, and a tiny bit on the larger side. On the loosest hook this band feels loose. I can fasten it in the tightest hook and I get less gapping, thought it feels a tiny but snug. I do love the forward lift and projection
