I'm torn between wanting to wear this bra ALL THE TIME, and wanting to never wear it so it lasts forever.
It's beautiful. Perfectly vintage, it seems like something my grandmother might have worn under her wedding dress.
It's incredibly comfortable. It lifts amazingly but naturally- it doesn't push my breasts into an unnatural shape as it lifts them, but rather creates the shape I get when I lift my breasts with my hands to try and figure out what they'd look like if they weren't droopy (also called "what my breasts could have been if I'd worn a bra to ballet classes in my teens"). This natural shaping causes ... one odd effect- the size difference between my breasts is more pronounced here than in any other bra. I don't really mind this, because it doesn't show under clothes. Another thing that doesn't show under clothes is that I spill into the center, but this is true of every plunge, and is less a fit issue than a soft tissue issue (rhyme unintended). The fact that I love and feel so great in this bra despite these issues speaks volumes about how amazing it is.
I feel like "my first Ewa Michalak" is a rite of passage in the bra community. I'm definitely a convert.
