    Fits

    My shape is short and narrow rooted, soft, and low set. Pictures have cookies in.

    This bra is gorgeous! It has a pretty black lace that overlays a deep purple (magenta) background cup. The center gore has a nice matching purple bow, and the straps are covered with a nice dark magenta material that accents everything well. The lace wraps around all the way to the back of the bra.

    The insides of the cups are cotton, as usual, which is lovely and soft. The inside of the cups have full cookies that cover most of the inside of the bra, up to the upper seam anyways. This style of ... cookie creates a much more natual looking lift and it doesn't distort the cups as much as the chp opium and chp oksana cookies do. They are also way easier to put in, as the pocket opens to the outside instead of to the inside of the cup.

    The straps are not as stretchy as the other models I've tried (opium, cappuccino, oksana). They are fully adjustable, but I have them almost adjusted all the way out on my long frame. They are hard to adjust too, man oh man.

    The shape is uplifted but pointier than the chp. I'm guessing this will round out a bit with wear. The cups are taller than the chp also. However, even though I have short roots, this bra encloses my breasts without gaping, whereas I get a bit of upper cup gaping in the 65F chp.

    Overall excellent quality and a beautiful bra.

    edited to add: the band on this bra is pretty firm. I measured 70.5 to from the hook to the eye while pulling until wires started to distort.

      Dang you got this fast considering it was just released! Jealous. This is the exact bra I want, in this size, when I get the spare change.

      lcl0706 I ordered it around October 11th, and they sent it via DHL, so it arrived in 7 days. DHL delivery cost me $100 dollars though (unintentionally... in extra charges, fees, etc). Hope you're able to get yours! It's really beautiful in person.

      so beautiful

    • 2

      That is one seriously gorgeous bra.

    • This is one that I am really interested in, though judging from the stretched measurements, I'm pretty sure that I would need at least a 70 band. It's soooo pretty!!

    • Calluna, yes the band is not stretchy in this one at all... maybe because the lace goes all the way around? I'm not sure, but it's snug.

    Finally got my EM order from almost two months ago! This bra is just sooooooo beautiful. The magenta overlay is breathtaking! Onto the fit: this fit much better than I was expecting. The wires stayed in my IMF, as far as I could tell, the gore tacked, the cup wasn’t too tall. My boobs my not look like Gosia’s (I can dream) but I like the soft hills look. I don’t get overspill with the pads, so I might use them every once in a while. I like the straps on this one a lot, with them not being too stretchy or rigid. Weird comment: the pads appear to be small for the pockets.

    • Aside from the CHPs, the pads are small in comparison to the cup size above the K cup (at least in the 28 band), so you are not imagining it.

      Can't wait for photos and measurements on your newly arrived treasures!! :-)

    Hasn't set fit

    I sized up for this bra (my first trial of Ewa Michalak) and I think that was the right decision. Even so, I think the cup might be just cutting in a tiny bit on my larger side. The gore does tack although it is hard to see - I'm not good at taking photos of myself, and I'm very close-set. I took the bra insert (or cookie) out of the larger side and wore both on my smaller side. The inserts are long and wide but not thick. The cups are much more flexible without them. I am wearing the bra on the loosest hooks in the ... photos but I do think I will have to go to tighter hooks before long - I am more of a 30 than 32 band size. The straps are thicker than I'm used to and a bit more difficult to adjust. That's not a problem but the decorative edging does worry me a bit as I've encountered bras before where trim like this felt like a serrated knife edge and was very painful!
    I have only tried on this bra so far. I hope it proves to be comfortable as I like the look and it is giving good uplift and cleavage. Despite being a plunge it feels secure and not too skimpy which I hope will prevent my boobs trying to escape over the front. The wires seem so far to be in the right place (generally wires are too wide and go much too far into my armpit) and there is enough projection, so the bra isn't pushed down from my IMF - I hope it stays up in longer wear. There is no gap at the bottom of the cup, which is so unusual - I usually have about a finger-width of empty space there because most cups are too shallow at the bottom.
    The bra arrived in a cube-shaped cardboard box which was a surprise but didn't suffer in transit.

    60L

    Fits

    This is my second attempt with PL Dark Magenta, having tried it prior in 60KK.

    Since I was getting a lot of quadding with the 60KK I had to let go of that one, but I am a sucker for all things purple so I finally decided to order it again in a cup size up. The cup construction is 3 lower sections with two vertical seams, and one horizontal upper section. The cups are lightly foam lined, and have cookie pockets with removable almond shaped cookies for asymmetry correction or extra oomph as needed. The cups and band are black with purple lace covering them, and the ... straps have a purple ribbon that extends for the whole length of the strap. While my 60KK had the ribbon sewn on without stretching the straps first, there was very little flexibility to the straps. Luckily Ewa corrected the issue with this one so the straps are fully stretchy and comfortable.

    The band measures 22.6” and stretches to 28.75” and has a full lace band with 3 hooks and four rows of eye loops at this size.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 12.25”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 14.75”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    The cup height is 9”, width is 6.5”, and the gore .55” wide with 3.55” tall. To compare, the 60KK had a depth of 12.25” to a max of 14”, height of 8.625”, width of 6.2”, gore .63” wide with 3.25” tall. This shows the 60L has a bit more overall coverage and depth than the 60KK provided.


    As for fit, it is an improvement over the 60KK, but still not a perfect fit. The cups do fit, but I still get a bit of center spillage due to the lower gore, which is worse if I try and do a proper swoop and scoop. The gore is about 2 fingers off my sternum. Regardless of a swoop and scoop my breasts just look really wide in this bra.

    I think part of the reason is it does not push my breast up, but instead my breasts force the cups outward, so I bulge out instead of round up. The path of least resistance wins again. This could be due to my implants, the wide set straps, or a combination of both, but it just doesn’t give me the wow “pop” look like it does on Ewa’s model Gosia which was more of what I was hoping for. I know, different boobs, different results, but a girl can dream though, right? https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":-D" />

    The plus side is that I now realize why the S style gives that same look though (out instead of up) which makes it look “bulky” instead of beautiful on me. Gotta love those epiphany moments! I am really thinking that I should just avoid Ewa’s padded bras, as while I love the extra support they give, I do not find their look on me to be as appealing…..

  5. PL Dark Magenta 60KK

    PL Dark Magenta is a padded plunge bra in black with gorgeous purple lace accents. It comes with light foam lined cups, as well as removable pads for asymmetry. The cookie pockets for the pads are sewn completely into the cups, like the S style, compared to the CHP which are only sewn on the bottom of the cup.

    The band measures 22.4” to a max stretch of 28.75”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops which seem to be the standard for the larger cup range.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure ... into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 12.25”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 14”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.


    The height at the center of the cup is 8.625” making more of a full coverage cup. It consists of 4 sections, 3 lower vertical and 1 upper horizontal section. As with S Zielonny Pieprzyk 60L, this bra came with smaller cookies in comparison to the cookie pockets and the other Ewa bras I have. While I don’t use them, I know this is worth noting since many of you do use them and might be in for a shock as these cookies wouldn’t give the coverage that other ones do.

    The straps are *not* stretchy. At first I thought it was just stiff material, and then I realized the straps themselves are the same elastic stretchy straps, but that they had sewn the ribbon onto the straps while the straps were unstretched! This means that the elastic can only stretch as far as the darn ribbon, which in this case is not at all. Since the ribbon covers the whole length of the strap, it makes it difficult to adjust the strap, and at any setting other than too loose, the straps are too stiff to be comfortable. With a bit of sewing skill, I can remove this ribbon and re-sew it on partially with the straps stretched, making the ribbon similar to my Zielony.

    The center gore is set at .625” wide which seems to be about standard, and has a height of 3.25”. The wing is 4.75” and the wires are 6.2” from top to top.

    75GG

    Didn't fit

    After many years of neglecting myself in the boob department, I decided to treat myself to some new bras. I've had good experience with Ewa Michalak's bras in the past, but their calculator had me between 75 and 80 back and a GG and H cup in the 75 band. As I prefer a tighter band, I went for the 75 and went ahead to order both cup sizes in a PL style. The other bra fits marvelously, but this one is just too tight, I can barely put it on and the boobs get squished something awful. I can't really talk much about the bra as it ... doesn't fit.

    The band feels tighter than the other bra I've ordered in the same band size. Sure, it can be the tight cups, but I don't think that's the whole story. The straps are decorated with a pretty ribbon, but that reduces their stretch. The same ribbon is applied to the little bit of elastic between the strap and closure. As even the other 75 is on the tighter side on me, this little bit of lost stretch is something I'd sorely miss, had the cups been a correct size. This ribbon also makes the straps shorter.

    All of this makes me quite sad, as the bra looks amazing. This is my favorite shade of purple and it contrasts nicely with the black. Black lace with a black underlay is also something I find very pretty. Overall it looks well made, it's just that the ribbon is a thing to consider when deciding on fit.

    This bra has a design flaw where the ribbon is sewn onto the entire length of strap while the strap is unstretched. This causes the straps to not stretch at all, and they are difficult to adjust because of the thickness of the strap and ribbon. The lack of stretch causes the apex of the bra to cut into me worse than my other PLs in this size, to the point where it is unwearable for more than a couple hours. It's such a shame, this bra is one of the prettiest ones that I own.

    • UGH!! Hope you receive a refund!

    • 60s are non returnable.

    • If it is sewing error, it should be returnable. That is a serious flaw.

    • Are you thinking this is the way EM designed the straps? So sorry if that's the case. :-( :-(

    • From reading on Reddit I think that is how this one was designed intentionally.

    • Of course, I never saw those posts until after I ordered it. :)
