So, after a long long debate, I sent Sonya both of the bras she sent me to try, with the option to buy. I had the hardest time with the 30G (65HH) Comexim Jade, because I loved the colour and look, and the fit was almost perfect. In the end, I opted to try a Comexim with alterations because I felt like the cups were too tall. And I’d hoped for something that I didn’t need to use an extender for. I spotted this one in her profile. I felt like it might be a better option since it kind of has a similar aesthetic ...to the Jade. So, since I like the fit and comfort of my 65FF PL Zlote Oko so much, and the measurements are close, I just knew I would be more comfortable and happier with it. I bought this when I sent her bras back and included my Cleo Lily for swap for her 65FF S Syrena.
So I said that it’s similar to the Jade. It is and it is not. It’s a solid cup with black lace over top. The base of the cups are a matte red instead of vibrant satiny green, the straps have a bit of red ribbon weaving through (which makes them not fully adjustable, which is not a problem for me), and a lower gore with a rounded ribbony jewel thing. The cups have cookie pockets and are lined with cotton. The cups themselves are softer and more flexible than the Jade/Comexim plunge and a tad shorter too, which is a weensy bit too tall for me still, but more manageable than the standard Comexim plunge height. The band stretches nicely to 29.5” whereas the Jade was a wee bit shy of 29” (which is my lowest comfortable stretched band measurement) and needed a set of hooks from an extender for long term comfort wear. To be honest, I miss the vibrant green from the Jade. The red of the Milady is nice but just isn’t the same.
The cups of this one feel like they’re a little bit smaller than the Zlote Oko. Measurements wise, they should not, but I have worn cookies with the Zlote Oko before, but I don’t think I can with this one. My center full tissue definitely spills more just before my period, which is when I took my pictures, but not as much afterwards. I might try to get some additional low tide pics in as well. The fit is pretty much like the Zlote Oko, but the band is less stretched out. I’m still unsure if I like the overall appearance on me or not. From a comfort level, it’s definitely more comfortable than the Jade, since the cups are lower and not in my armpit so much, and cups are lighter and squishier. The immediate projection is a bit more as well. I feel like it’s even more comfortable than the S bras I have, though my old 70E S Szykus was comfortable, so I might just need a 70 in the S cuts instead of 65.
Anyway, I’m still pretty happy with this, and patiently await the arrival of another 65FF PL coming from Korea. I definitely like the comfort and fit of the PL even if it might not ideally be best suited for soft, center full tissue. I definitely feel like it’s good for my even to fob pendulous breasts.

Beautiful bra! Since I usually wear a 60FF in EM bras, I was worried it would be too big. While the band is true to size, it is loose on me (a quick alteration will fix that) and the cups fit quite well. In fact, I had to remove the cookie from my larger side as it was too small with it in. The cups do look a bit tall on my short breasts, but it doesn't bother me. I feel like this model gives a lot of Y-cleavage. Straps are comfy and adjustable until the little bows. This bra does a good job of lifting and shaping my FOB, centre-full, immediately projected, narrow rooted and very soft breasts.
Hands, down, Ewa Michalak bras are the best fit that I've tried. I don't even have to swoop and scoop my breasts into the cups... From the moment I put it on, it's already perfect. The. Best. Fit.
Unfortunately, I outgrew my 65Gs and my size has been fluctuating a lot lately (up 1 to 2 cup sizes since then). When the new designs came out, I knew I had to have this, and it really is a beautiful bra. The first time I put it on, it was slightly pointy along the middle seam of the cup. One wash, though, and it settled into the usual rounded PL shape.
A very, *very* pretty bra that seems very "clunky", but I guess you can't expect a lot else from a moulded and padded bra. The band feels very stretchy on this one, and ended up being too big for my 28 back. Meanwhile the cups also seem somewhat bigger than a DD, strange especially considering how Ewa PLs tend to be reviewed as running small in the cups (I figure this might be because they sewed it wrong or it was a wrongly tagged 30E). Back when I was a 28E the cups gaped yet when I migrated towards a 28F/30E it started to fit alright, but still with the pads in.
Hurray, it fits! It is practically the same model as the Pl Cappuccino, in the way it looks, only the lace is slightly different. As with the Pl Cappuccino, I find the band a bit stretchy which makes it a little more loose than it could be on me, but so far, it is not really a problem!
I'm just doing the conscientious thing and entering this bra which is going to my sister. It doesn't fit me at all, but I didn't expect it to either, as she's about 7 cup sizes smaller than I am, so consider that when looking at my fit, which I put in to the best of my knowledge based on the bra.
I can comment on the appearance though, which is fabulous! I love the black lacy overlay on the red cup- it's very classy. The bra comes with the extra push-up inserts which are fairly standard for Ewa PL models these days. The straps are only half adjustable, though I think if you were really stubborn you could take the bow off the strap and push it down over the fabric part. The band seems a little snug for a 28 band, but not overly so.
Finally, my Ewa Michalak order has arrived! I have previously tried two other EM bras that were too small, so I used them as a basis for ordering 60GG. The wires on a PL 60G were perfect, but they are a tiny bit too wide on this 60GG. I have an extremely narrow root, so there is nothing to be done about this. It's about one (of my tiny) finger's width too wide, but loads better than typical brands like freya, even!
This bra is absolutely gorgeous. I chose it because I LOVE red, and I wanted something a little prettier. You know, for those days where you just ...NEED to be wearing a gorgeous bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> This bra did NOT disappoint! The red material is actually kind of fake-halloween-costume looking, but the lace that covers it is beautiful. The red peeks through the lace in a really elegant way. The straps also have red ribbon and eyelet detailing, which is a nice touch. There is a lovely little gem attached at the gore. The band in the back is just plain black -- no problem there!
This bra comes with pads for asymmetry. I think I am one of the strange women who DOESN'T need asymmetry correction, so I tried the bra with both in and with both out. With both in, the band feels almost too tight, but that makes sense, as that would make the cup volume smaller. Without, the cups gape a teeny bit when I roll my shoulders forward, but standing normally, I fill it out completely.
Otherwise, it fits like a dream! The profile is very different than I am used to, very up-and-center shape. Even my PL in 60G didn't give such a dramatic shape. I only tried it with a t-shirt on, but I am sure it will look kick ass with an hourglassy-shape dress!
I do want to point out for those trying to figure out their EM size, I typically wear 28G in other brands. In my experience, the EM PLs run about a cup size small, depending on your breast shape/density. Read more 246 more words
The straps are extremely short. I mean, I'm done with Ewa, I'm just dying in every bra from her. Cleavage is nice, the band is really short (bear in mind, it's secondhanded, still pretty firm). I like the aesthetics, my quest for long straps continue https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
