Bra band runs quite tight, it's meant to be a 28 band but stretches to 26 inches, which is apparently quite usual with Ewa Michalak bras. Cups are too small for me though so can't really make an assessment on fit but I have heard that Ewa Michalak PLs run small in the cup.
Bra made out of nice, soft materials, as per usual from Ewa Michalak. The lace and the deep red colour go well together.
Compared to the other PLs (e.g., Ewa Michalak Pl Cielisty (42)), this bra has more cup height and also seems more closed on top (slightly cutting in). It didn't suit my wide root shallow boobs as well as the other PLs did.
Measured after about 2 months of wear. Band seems to have stretched out fairly quickly. It has 4 rows of hooks and I'm already using the 3rd row. The straps would NOT stay up on my shoulders (wish I'd taken a picture to show how wide they were set before I altered them) but are comfortable after moving in approx. 1.5" each.
This was my 2nd plunge; the first was a wild guess at sizing and was painfully too small so going off this bra alone, I would say it's not my favorite style. I feel, not exactly pointy, but oddly shaped. It looks just fine underneath fitted clothes however and there is no spillage towards the middle. Still, I much prefer the appearance of a CHP.
Beautiful, but definitely too small. Band feels fine on the middle hooks, would consider buying a smaller backsize (ie, my usual) as I think this would stretch a bit because of the fabrics. Cups are obviously too small. Can't say how it would fit, as it really didn't fit me.
*EDIT* Since losing a fair bit of weight, this bra now fits a lot lot better! Previously I was wearing a 32H, but I've gone down to a 30G/GG. This means that the cups are perfect now! The band is definitely too big on me, I'm considering altering it smaller as I love the shape this bra gives me. Despite ...being at least 2 sizes too big in the band, it doesn't move around during the day too much.
The cups are fine without the pads in, but I can add them to give that extra va-va-voom if desired. On my smallest days, there is a little big of gaping near the strap, but that's partly due to my breast shape more than the cups being too big.
The straps are well spaced, not too far set on my average-to-wide shoulders. The wires are a little narrow, but with a little re-adjusting during the day my boobs stay in place despite the huge band.
This is a beautiful bra, very happy I kept it! Read more 114 more words
I was expecting this to fit similar to the 70JJ PL Stalwolka I got, but found the band on this to be a bit stretchier, and the cups gave a slightly different/odd shape. Overall though, the bra is lovely, and fits well enough to keep!
I love how the straps on the Ewa bras don't seem to be plotting to dislocate my arms from my shoulder sockets, rather, they're set narrow enough to not interfere with any normal movement throughout the day https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I finally got this bra in the mail and boy was I excited. I was super nervous about it because I heard when people order the PL version they needed an extra size up but I ordered the same size as my HP. It fits really well (without the extra cookie pad things). I guess if I wanted extra cleavage that the boys so much love (aka quadboob) I could use the extra pads to get it which is nice to know. It fits perfectly though. I was worried it would be too tight and it is tight, but, not tight enough to ...use an extender. I think I again got lucky. I fill the cups completely and they encase all my tissue. I think I'm officially converted to extra narrow wires for life! Those narrow wire bras feel sooooooo much better than anything else I ever thought felt good. It is every bit as sexy in person as it is online. Love the deep red and black lace. I'm really excited to finally have "sexy" bra! I wore it for a few hours and so far it feels super comfortable so I can't wait to wear it more! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I need to remove the asymmetry pads from this one for everyday use. The pads push my boobs up too high and reduces the coverage. I get a tiny bit of quadraboob with them in. Taking them out, though, makes this bra fit pretty perfectly.
The band on this one seems closer to the size of my PL Turkus as opposed to my PL Stalowka. Like the Turkus, this one is a bit stretchy and definitely larger than the same band size on the Stalowka. I love the stretchier bands when I am having one of those days wear I want the best comfort possible.
This bra is beautiful (lace over the red base), but will probably be one of my special occasion bras. I just don't like much lace for everyday bras. It irritates my skin a bit more.
