    It's a Gazeta! It's a Gazeta! It's a Gazeta! I'm a lucky girl indeed! Band runs small, cups run either taller or about a half size-ish big. Overall I find it comfortable, others may disagree. Immediate projection is good, the wires are a little wider than other CH/Ps, and I don't care! It's a Gazeta!

      I'm so envious of your bradrobe! I wonder if all Gazetas run a fraction large, or just this particular one? Are EM cups usually TTS/a little on the small side?

    • 2

      slowb I've had two Gazetas and they were both large in the cup and small in the band.

      What a lovely bra. Looks wonderful on you and looks to fit you perfectly.

      slowb I've tried 5 EM half cups. The Lawenda 65F runs big in both band and cup. The Stalowka 65F ran small in band and TTS cups. Gazeta runs small band, big-ish cups. My CH Bizkopty 65FF ran small in the cups, the band was altered. The CH Cherry 65FF ran enormous everywhere. I think it's kinda hit and miss unfortunately.

    75J

    Didn't fit

    Very first impression - this could be a great thing!

    Fit - I wear a 32 band in Panache but a 75 band in EM because sometimes they run tight - yeah, this runs tight. I can fasten this on the loosest hook, whereas most 75s I tighten right away on the 2nd hook, and soon on the 3rd. Definitely consider going up a band for this.

    This is supposed to be a roomier cup - but not so much, for me? Well, my BMs occasionally quad a little on my bigger side, too - but this was a small day. I'm hoping it ... will stretch out a little - and I failed to try it with a shirt to see if the quadding is visible - but definitely there was a small amount of quadding on my bigger side.

    Note - some pics are taken in the mirror and some are not, but the red tag is on my larger side in all pictures.

    I did loosen the straps a bit to accommodate my slight quadding. Now, i'm short (5'2, almost) but my breasts are low-set . . these straps are almost all the way let out. Could be an issue for tall people who dont have very high-set breasts.

    Fabric, as other reviewers mention, is definitely thicker and stiffer than, for example, the fabric in my BMs (which are all single-layer BMs). It feels coarser than my beloved Floris, possibly thicker. I do like a firm fabric. The stretchy fabric on the top portion of the cup is very light and sheer feeling - almost like tights? The cloth is doubled over so the top of the cup is basically a fold, which obviously can cut in a bit.

    The buttons kinda freak me out - i want to unbutton them lol. But I suppose they are interesting!

    Definitely high and round. Really curious how this will hold up over time.

      Thanks for the back photo! Those straps don't look too wide set at all which is what I'm always afraid of. They might actually work out really well for me-the plunge cut usually doesn't work for me because of how far apart they are on the back. I keep meaning to give this a try but then I see something shiny or brightly coloured. It looks great on you besides the little quad and I hope that goes away once you break the bra in.

    • 1

      I havent tried any plunges - i'm so soft I can fall out of anything w less than 4 inches of gore. and i dont seem to have trouble w wide-set straps. I must have wide shoulder compared to the circumference of my underbust.

    • 3

      You review was great :) I think that the EM website suggested that it was compared in cup to a bm and looking at the measurements it looks to be so but your not the first review to say it runs a bit smaller in the cup compared to the bm . I am worried though about the one I ordered in a 70 hopefully I can breathe ,we will see.

      You pointed out details like the buttons I didn't notice before and the folded over stretch tulle upper cup . The buttons at least are easy to remove if they end up driving you nuts lol .

      Looks really good on you and you don't get that wrinkly strap thing ..but the main thing will be how does it feel after a few wearings . I can never tell if I like a bra until I wear it a while . I hope it works for you it looks like a great everyday bra that you should be able to put on and then not think about all day (my dream bra i.e. not sure it exists) sure does match your skin tone well too.

    • 1

      Thanks Ivp!

      I tell you, i still think that picture from underneath looks creepy. It seems really weird - like, it looks like my breasts connect above the gore? idk, something about that freaks me out. it just looks wrong

    • 3

      Ok, after my first all-day wear - well, I got sweaty within an hour of putting it on - summer. So the band was a little uncomfortable, but not bad, really.

      The bra is slightly too small for me, but reverse-swooping does stop the quadding.

      I feel like this elastic material really does a good job of keeping the girls IN the bra, like they cant climb out because they've got a lid on them. The shirt I wore wouldnt show quad, so its hard to know about that.

      Also, because the girls are not able to climb, it is not a cleavage bra at all. I mean, its not super-high coverage- i wore my lowest cut top and you could only see the bra if you looked straight down - but my boobs stayed somewhat separate from each other - which is GOOD for me. It means less sweat, less rash. My boobs basically touch, so keeping them apart is normally what I want a bra to do.

      Still hoping it stretches out a bit more, or, you know, i lose some weight lol

    70K

    Fits

    My first BM bra and it's amazing! I think this bra is really made for my breast shape (tall roots, deep projected narrow very center full breasts) and the 70K seems like the best size for me in this bra. The band fits like it should, quite snug but I can fit 2 fingers under it. I think it is true to size for a 70 band, stretching to 82cm (32inch). The wires are narrow and I don't have empty fabric on the sides for once. The cups are very deep and projected and offer room where I need it. The gore tacks and lies flat. So it's ... great to notice that if a bra like BM Antonina that offers enough center room and projection the gore will tack.

    What I noticed compared to my 70K - Ewa Michalak » Sf Gładzioch Beż (849) that the cups are taller and there is more coverage. This is a good thing for me since I have breast tissue that comes of very high and many bras cut in. I also noticed that the gore and the wings are a little bit taller than on my SF. This makes it more supportive for me. The shoulder straps are wide but don't adjust long enough. It's just okay when I have them on the loosest possible setting, but they should not be any shorter!

    The shape of this bra is very front and center and projected. I really like this because in my opinion it looks better on my body shape than if my boobs are east - west and wide looking in a bra. From the side my boobs look a bit pointy in profile... almost a bit like a torpedo boob (just a bit) and I'm not sure if I am 100% comfortable with it. I used to hate this look when I was at a bigger bra size because it made my boobs even bigger looking but now I'm okay with it.

    The material on this bra is amazing. Online pictures make the lace appear quite bulky and it looks like it would be itchy, but it isn't. The cream white lace on top is super soft and thin (not flimsy) and stretchy. The lower cup is lined with a non stretchy beige colored mesh and the upper cup is lined with a stretchy beige lace. So the upper section of the bra does fully stretch and adjust to the shape of the breast. Also there is no elastic band at the edge of the cups so no cutting in. Yay!

    I only wore the bra for a short time but it felt very supportive. I did not have to adjust my boobs nor did I feel any pain from the bra so far. I will update here once I have worn it a few times.

      Thanks everyone! I'm really happy with the bra. It held up well over 7 hours of wear today.

    • 7 hours, that is an excellent report!

    • 3

      Yes it is. The bra is a win! I think that the uplift declines a bit over the day… Overall the shape is more natural in the bra. It still feels supportive. I got some red marks from the straps, but no shoulder pain so far. I think that the wires and band do most of the work like they should… but with boobs my size there will be always significant weight left on shoulder straps too. I'm just glad there was no pain yet!

    I can see why everyone raves about Ewa Michalak bras. This one's great! The band is snug but the fabric is really comfortable. The cups give me a nice rounded shape with good lift. It brings my breasts front and centre, which I like. The bra comes with removable cookies, which corrects my minor asymmetry. Why don't all bras come with removable cookies? These things are fantastic!

    Hasn't set fit

    All of my best-fitting bras are Ewa Michalak, so I was SO excited when she released a new swimsuit set! I know everyone has a different ideal in mind when it comes to bikini tops, so I'll start by saying that I personally prefer something lightly padded that will give a nice lifted shape and a little cleavage while still feeling secure overall. Happily, this top really delivers in each of those areas! It does an excellent job of lifting and centering just like the S cut bras, and the cleavage is pretty spectacular depending on whether or not you choose to use the pads. At the same ... time, I would be totally comfortable running down the beach in this without worrying that I would accidentally scandalize an innocent bystander https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> It feels sturdy, comfortable and very well-constructed. But, be forewarned-- the straps are on the stretchy side, and while I don't mind personally, I wonder if it might pose a problem in larger cup sizes.

    The color is a borderline-neon reddish pink with a slight orangey undertone. I was unprepared for how bright it is in real life! If you're looking for something that will stand out at the pool or beach, this is definitely it. In truth, pink is not my first choice and I wish the color was a little less vicious, but against the graphic black trim that lines the vertical seams and crosses over itself almost in a corset-like way at the gore, it actually makes for a beautiful and interesting design. As for the small removable straps, I personally really don't care for them and will be wearing this bikini without. Maybe for a vacation with my boyfriend they'd be fine, but otherwise I feel like they make the top look a little too much like bondage-inspired lingerie to be wearing comfortably around family and friends https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I do however love the little fabric tie at the back and think it's a really cute way to hide the bra's hook and eye closures.

    I didn't end up ordering the matching bottoms because I wasn't sure about how high-waisted they are, but I think this top would be equally cute with solid black bottoms as well.

      Lovely! I think it looks more like a bathing suit on you than it did on the EM models.

    • 1

      Thanks! Yeah, it can be difficult to tell from the photos sometimes but thankfully it definitely looks like swim fabric in person rather than a regular bra.

    • But i also focus on the models closest to my size (I'm wearing 75JJ in S's ) and i think anything that big looks like . . underwear no matter what

    • Oh wow, this is such a great design! I am so fascinated by the black lines on this. Super cool! I can understand why you'd be a little wary of wearing the extra straps around the beach though - I'd probably feel the same way lol.
      This looks great though! That tie back is adorable!

    • 1

      It looks great, I really like the black ribbons. Ewa said it's a true swim fabric, it comes from Italy.

      Are these still 3 part cups despite of 3 vertical trims?

    • vesela_krava yes, the seams look like the normal 3 part cup construction. It fits exactly like a regular S bra in the same size :)

    • I wish she would make a swimsuit based on the 3D cut. I might even be willing to brave a bikini in public if she did.

    • 1

      I ordered the bottoms mainly because with the free shipping it was worth it to check them out. I have a butt, so I can pull them down and wear them not high waisted. I'm 5'7" with a long torso though, so I don't know if that made a difference. They actually aren't too high though. They're really cute. I planned to wear them only with black bottoms, but I actually like the bottoms. I had to get a cup size down but such an upgrade from VS! Much cuter than in pics

    80KK

    Didn't fit

    Finally it's here! I should have ordered this sooner.... This is my best fitting bra at this moment. Love the sturdyness of the material and the way Ewa has the top part made: stretchy but supporting. I put it on and wore it a whole day. It fits me so much better than the 85jj... Weird how I started out wearing 85j and now I'm so much more happy with this 80kk. Fitwise this bra still doesn't tack...no quadbood, nice band, good fitting wires and hopefully the straps won't fold. The straps are a bit short, this is them on the longest setting. The FB style provides a ... very nice round and uplifted shape and makes me feel confident and supported, the S styles I own do not give me the support and I don't feel that confident with them being so open on the top part. So not sure whether I'm keeping the Opium which also arrived today...
    Eventhough the Tanya is a fancy bra this will be my new everyday work bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    • Wow, looks great!

      Btw, it is apparently not necessary for the gore to tack on the FB bra. She has a note in many of the models: "It may happen that the bridge will not it stick to the chest but the cut is not an absolute requirement."

    • Gorgeous and looks lovely on you!

    • This looks fantastic on you! :)

    CH Cherry is the first CH Ewa has made in some time. I didn't particularly care for the looks of it when it was released, but since the CH can't be beat in terms of immediate projection in my size, I did not hesitate to purchase it.
    This is hands down the most projected bra I have. I have six (?) other CHs and they don't even come close. I believe Ewa tweaked her pattern, she must have, because this bra could show movies.
    Cherry is a deep dark red, really similar to a just under-ripe Bing cherry, with a black mesh overlay. The mesh is netted with dots. The ... band is black powermesh. The cup straps and the shoulder straps are fully adjustable and made of the cheapest elastic on the planet. The entire bra is finished off with red bows, a giant one in the center and smaller ones on the straps.

    It seems quite a few people got loose bands with the Cherry. I didn't. Mine stretches to about 29" and works for me on the loosest or second set (of four) of hooks.
    The shoulder straps are stupid. They are so very thin and too stretchy. They are cheap and they look it. They're fully adjustable, but they are almost impossible to adjust. Once in place, they stay there but getting them in place is a chore. They are initially itchy, but that goes away. I wore the bra for an entire day with the straps as is, they do more or less stop being annoying, but I have to over-tighten them and they leave awful red marks on me. I have straps to replace them with and I plan on doing that before I wear the bra again.
    The cups are very open and very projected. So, the bra seems big. I have to wear the pad on my right side. In my pics I have both pads in, but it's unnecessary on my left side and actually causes the cup to be too small so I just wear the one. I couldn't size down, but I wasn't expecting it to be so open when I ordered it. The cup pretty much comes out from the wire parallel to the floor, it's amazing actually and definitely presents the bust. Because the projection is insane and my roots are short, there is not a whole lot of cleavage going on for me, which is fine.
    The wires are very comfortable. Even with the pads taking up space, they do not make their way out of my IMF. They are narrow and awesome.
    The cup straps, I don't think I care for them. I can't get them to lay flat and not twist. I also can't adjust them to a length where they are lying against my skin but not cutting into my inner fullness. I just can't find that sweet spot with them. I believe most of those issues are from breast shape. I have very short roots so I am functionally FoB. The cup straps are laying across muscle for the majority of their length and not across breast tissue. I've seen the bra on women that are more FoT and the straps look a lot nicer. I was considering removing them, but my husband really likes them so I'll keep them, they aren't uncomfortable so it isn't a problem. If I could figure out a way to make them detachable, that would be great.

    I bought the underwear in a 38. They fit well, a little loose at the waist, but just right at the back. They are comfortable, but come up a bit high, hitting just below my belly button.

    YOU GUYS I'VE FINALLY DONE IT! I'VE GOTTEN THE PERFECT BIKINI!

    This is what I've dreamed of for over a year now. I can't believe it finally happened!

    So before I get all gushy, I wanted to put the measurements of the high waist bottoms I ordered since there's no option to input measurements for panties or bottoms here. I ordered a size 42, and these are taken laying flat:
    Waist: 13.6 inches
    Widest part (at hips-ish): 17 inches
    Top to bottom: 13.3 inches

    So the bottoms are way cute, but they don't cover my whole booty! I was disappointed by that; they are sort of high-cut in the back, which I'm not a ... fan of. I like my whole booty to be covered. I emailed my local seamstress, and she said she could add a ruffle along the bottom edge, so I think I'm going to do that, just because it makes me feel more comfortable to have that extra bit of coverage. (It sorta felt like I was walking around with a wedgie when I tried them on. The ruffle won't eliminate that, I realize, but at least I'll feel more "covered" while wearing them!)

    Now to the top. Lemme just get my fangirling out of the way off the bat. It's SO much cuter in person. THERE'S SPARKLES! I didn't even see those on the photos Ewa has on her site. It's like swirly sparkles that sort of dash randomly across the fabric. SO GIRLY I LOVE IT! The colors are SO might brighter in person, too. The pink reminds me of the BM Fluo color. The orange is like a mix between neon orange and bright coral. It's lovely. The back clasp has the little hook ruffle cover thing, too.

    As for fit, the top edge is a tiny bit gappy for me, but I expected that. The only bras that lay flat for me are my BMs, and I can't really expect a swimsuit to be made with stretch lace like a bra. This top fits so much better than my custom Saint Tropez. The straps aren't as wide, and the top lays down much better. The quality is simply magnificent.

    I am so so glad I ordered this. I was having serious buyer's remorse because of the price, but I got it right away on the first day of the sale, so it was a bit cheaper anyways. It's worth it because now I won't have to order anotehr swimsuit ever again! So worth it. I'm in love.

    I seriously hope everyone else who ordered it loves it as much as I do.

    • This is awesome! I am so happy for you!!! 💕

    • It's gorgeous. Congratulations!

    Forewarning: This review includes descriptions and pictures of erotic wear on my body, including explicit descriptions of female anatomy and theoretical sexual activities.

    Onto the sexy stuff! This review is going to be a 3-in-1 overview of the SMN Fetysz Czarny (I'm just gonna shorten it to "Fetysz" in this review), the Why not? briefs, and the Why not? harness. Once again, these are more my first impressions than an actual review. PS: You can see all the photos including those of the briefs and the harness if you go to the full review page, rather than just expanding the adventure on the front page.

    Let's start with the ... bra! I have already owned the closely related SM Ty Wiesz for a while now, and gotten a handful of use out of it, so I'll be comparing the Fetysz to that mostly. First of all, I love the black mesh, and I love the black straps over the cups, which have a super unique placement, and are easy to adjust (check out Ewa's video on this bra's page on her website on how to adjust it!). The only thing I need to be wary of when adjusting them is to not tighten them too much, otherwise it creates creases and bulges in my breasts that could potentially translate through clothing. The adjusters also show a bit through clothing, but it's not too noticeable under thicker sweaters or layers. Compared to the Ty Wiesz, I love that this bra has thinner shoulder straps, but maintains the V strap attachment in the back. I think the thinner shoulder straps blend in better with the overall aesthetic for this bra. This band is really comfortable. It started out pretty short and firm, but after just a couple hours of wear it has relaxed. I am most impressed, however, by the overall projection of these cups! Take a look at my photos, especially the angle and side pics. I am shocked at how much projection this bra has, both at the apex of the cups, and at the wire. So it's definitely a more natural shape that it gives me, rather than compressing me slightly and giving me a very round appearance like a lot of my BM's do and like my Ty Wiesz does. I've been wearing this bra today for a solid 5 hours or so, and before writing this, I took my shirt off to check the fit after several hours of wear, and there were no wrinkles or folding near the wire. Outstanding! Take note if you're someone who needs this level of projection. Overall, very happy with this bra.

    Next, we have the Why not? briefs and harness. My first thought is, strappy sexy delightfulness! I got this set in size 36, but I'm sure you can special order it smaller or larger than the listed sizes if needed. I have a very ample butt, and I find that a lot of underwear cuts into my buttocks, thus creating unsightly panty lines under clothing. However, seeing as there are so many straps on this set, plus a distinct lack of any fabric covering my buttocks, I figured I'd go for the smallest size to cater to my small waist (I have about a 25" waist, vs. 38" (ish) hips at my widest point). The topmost horizontal straps on the briefs, that sit just at the top of my hipbone, are juuuust short enough for me if I tighten them as far as they will go. However, it would be a super easy alteration to shorten these straps further if I want to in the future. The only part that is not adjustable is the brief part itself. This fits me well. Now, I know what you're all wanting to know. "Where does the crotch fabric end??" For me, it covers most of my vulva, and stops just short of my vaginal opening. So my clitoris is covered, but I could theoretically have vaginal intercourse (and also pee!) without having to move these briefs. I haven't tried either of these activities yet, but I'm pretty confident that it can be done. As you'll see in my pictures, the briefs came with a size tag attached to the end of the crotch fabric on the inside. I thought that was pretty unsightly, and maybe also uncomfortable to keep it attached while wearing these briefs, so I cut the thread that was attaching it and removed it. I did the same for the size tag that was attached to the back of the harness. Speaking of which, not much to say except that everything's adjustable once again (I looked up pics on Ewa's website to figure out how to attach it to the briefs), and yay straps! Even if this set doesn't get a ton of use like my day-to-day underwear, it was only like $35 CAD during the Black Friday sale, so totally worth it IMO.

    Overall, I'm super happy with this purchase, and look very much forward to getting more use out of it!

      Wonderfully thorough review, as always. I'd like to thank you for the panty details, as I was quite curious, but wouldn't have asked. :-D
      Looks like the perfect date night pairing!!

      excellent review! Bra looks great. I did try it before but didn't really like it. I love the fetysz panties tho and im sure i'm going to love my Why Not? one even more :D they should arrive this week - cannot wait!

      Thanks for the review - I only bought the panties but its good to know what to expect! I bought a different SM that was on sale in a 75K - the one with the triangles of black lace over the bottom. Cant wait until they arrive! Hopefully the panties work on my more apple-shaped body, too. and i'll be ready to remove that awkward tag lol

    • brasaremean No, the straps are not detachable.

      Thanks sherrach898 I've ordered this bra three times so far and keep changing my mind and changing my order, driving Kaska crazy! Mostly I was afraid it wouldn't be deep enough in the cup (and there was so little information on this bra) but your review sounds promising!

    Hasn't set fit

    I'm so happy that I finally got this bra! I loved the SF Szaron, with its muted tones, and hated the FB Myszerej, with its hot pink trim - but since they used the same base fabric, I asked for and was granted a custom FB with the Szaron styling. Because I've discovered that the FB is actually the most comfortable bra I've found.

    Well, the first order was a fail - they sent me a standard Myszerej. So we did an exchange - they shipping first, actually! And now I have my nice, muted bra.

    The band is a bit tight ... - hopefully it'll stretch out a little, eventually! The first FB I had was very lightly used, but I think it had been washed in the washing machine, which may be why the band was not so tight. Not that I'll do that!

    Anyways, just like my last FB, the Tanya, these cups seem slightly big on me. There's a bit of loose fabric on my smaller size, even tho its stretch lace. But I'm thrilled to finally have a bra that stays in place - FB is the only one now. I adjust it less than any other bra I own. Which is why i've splurged to up my collection to three of them.

    Anyways, very firm band, very firm lower cup - 2 fabrics but they are not actually attached, like i can pull them away from each other between the seams. The gray lace also has a white lining, but its stretchy. The straps again have the locking clips so the adjuster does not slide. The straps, as usual, have very little spare for me. I am only 5'2, but my breasts are very low set - my imf is at the bottom of my ribcage.

    I suppose some ppl would think it boring, but you know, sometimes its nice to have something that can be worn under light colors without showing!

      Added a clothed pic - its a nice blend w the shirt I'm wearing today! Subtle in the best way lol. You can see the slightly odd peak of the bra well in this shirt - its a rayon knit, so very clingy. Quite a matronly look - but it doesnt bother me. I mean, my daughter turns 26 next month, I'm definitely old enough to be a gramma. Might never happen, but I'm old enough!

    Hasn't set fit

    Isnt this the prettiest thing? I dont think of myself as being in to gold ribbon type things, but i LOVE this bra.

    The Rokoko was only ever really available in the HP style, but apparently Ewa also made a few Ss. I got this on her in-stock clearance, and it was labeled with a pattern number, not as Rokoko, but i figured it out.

    This is my first time going up this high in a cup. I had outgrown my 32K and 34JJ Ss and PL, and hoped this would work. It is definitely a touch big. I fill the cup except ... for the last bit of the upper edge of the cup - and this was with the cookies in. I might add another cookie, at least on the smaller side, or see if the cotton lining shrinks a little after washing. As you can see, its not particularly obvious under clothing. Well, the bad fit, I mean. The pattern, yes lol

    I swear I took 2 more pictures - from above and in more natural light - but I guess my phone was playing tricks on me.

    I really wonder if this is a bit big because its a one-off, or if the jump up in cup is a large jump, or if I've lost a little weight. I already bought a NWOT 75K from someone in the states, so maybe I'll have more insight in a week.

    Final answer is its SOOOO pretty that I will keep it and wear it as long as I can handle! Its nice to have some bras that are slightly big so I dont have to panic about outgrowing all my bras.

    • Looks so lovely! Glad you love it and is nearly perfect fit.
      The one I have for sale doesn't have th gold ribbon on straps :( that's shame as it looks way better with it! Also your one has such vivid colours like turquoise- is that the colour of the bra or is just the lighting ? Mine is icy/sky blue

    • huh, martka00 , thats interesting. I was at first thinking the other rokoko pics were just kinda faded - i mean, there's a sheer layer over the cups so its easy for the light to be odd - but the band and straps are really more turquoise than all the HP pics are.

      Maybe I shouldnt have called it a Rokoko? its so close tho

    • the HP doesnt have the gold straps either. Its really a uniquely lovely bra lol. I swear it tempts me to NOT try to exercise more and eat less carbs lol

      I must say your version is prettier 😂 And I think it's still Rokoko! So no need rename it I guess 🙈

      Huh. Finally looked up the word rokoko - its a design movement.

      " Rococo artists and architects used a more jocular, florid, and graceful approach to the Baroque. Their style was ornate and used light colours, asymmetrical designs, curves, and gold"

    • LOL silly kindle

    • So put it on this morning after the first wash. Seemed still too big so I put a second cookie in. Then I messed w my hair and put on my deodorant, and then the bra looked like it was almost too small - it wasnt tacking! I took out some pads and it still was fitting snugly. then I reverse-swooped and suddenly its gapping in the center.

      So the shape of this bra seems very different from my others - maybe its the scaling? Sort of awkward here!

    Didn't fit

    My shape is short and narrow rooted, soft, and low set. All pictures are with cookies in.

    This bra has a black lace over a beige underlining. The straps are their standard straps that are seen on some of the other models. They are a little stretchy but still provide full lift. Straps are also fully adjustable. They do sit over my tail of spence, as most bras do, but I don't find them irritating. They have a nice soft inner lining on the straps that makes them comfortable.

    The cups come with cookie pockets and cookies, which are set in the lower bottom half of the cup (not over ... the entire cup like EMs pl). I'd almost consider the cookies half cookies. I did try putting two cookies in one side to deal with my asymmetry, but it was too hard to stuff 2 cookies into one pocket, and it gave the bottom of the cup an odd shape, which you can see in one of the pictures. All pictures are shown with a cookie pocket on my right side.

    The shape this bra provides is rounded, uplifted, and exposed on the top of the breast. I love the CHP shape, and it looks great under a tshirt. Unfortunately, I probably could have gone with a 65E in this bra, as I do get some small gaping on my right side (and a teensy bit on my left). I would have preferred to wear this bra without cookies. The cups are just slightly a couple mm taller in this bra compared to the chp opium I also got.

    The band is nice and snug, and fits my 28"-29" rib cage well on the loosest hook (I can comfortably hook it on the second, but I don't like to overstretch bands).

    Overall great quality as always, but wish I'd sized down to the 65E to get better cleavage without cookies. For comparison, the Pl I ordered in 65F fits without gaping.

    • 1

      MamaPagan , no it's not a peekaboo gore, but that would have been cute. There's a black bow with a little diamond gem. The material extends through the gore so that the black lace shows over the beige background. Hope that made sense, lol.

    70GG

    Didn't fit

    When I was in Kraków, Poland for work recently, I wanted to visit a store where I could try on some Polish bras 'in the flesh'. Didn't have much spare time so I could only visit 1 shop for max. 1 hour.. Some googling led me to *Brafitteria*.

    I was somewhat disappointed when it turned out they mostly sold regular / UK brands like Freya, Gossard, Cleo and Panache.. No Avocado or other Polish brands. But luckily they did also have a small collection of Ewa Michalak! My experience with EM so far was limited to the two bras I already owned (70H - Ewa Michalak » ... S Turkusowe Kwiaty (703) and 70GG - Ewa Michalak » Pl Kicia Szałowa and I had never tried any unlined EM bras.

    I was especially excited to try Czarna Mgielka, as I've coveted that bra for years but was never sure which size to order.. and semi-cautious because I'd read about scratchy fabric / tight band, high wings and possible stabby gore; making me want to try it on first. The Brafitteria store had Czarna in 70H (too big) and 70G (too small). So a classic Goldilocks moment 💁🏼 but very useful to determine my size and confirming that the rest of the issues I could deal with. So YES I still want Czarna and I'll probably order it soon in 70GG!

    Anyway, back to (edit: not Ty Wiesz but) Ja Wiem..: I had _not_ expected to fall for this bra. I'd seen it around on EM's website but I dismissed it as too boudoir (and too expensive to justify buying just for occasional wear) - and I didn't like the rhinestones. But at the Brafitteria store it was one of few bras in my size, so I did try it on and... WOW, epic uplift! This bra felt great, almost like it was made to measure. No straps chafing my armpits (hallelujah!), no wrinkling, comfy band, wires pretty much perfectly matched my IMF.. And I actually really liked the design. Very pale powder pink with contrasting black seam finishing, like a ballerina gone bad girl 😉

    So, because I had allowed myself to get one bra as a souvenir from Poland, I bought the set!

    I've worn it frequently over the past few weeks, with good results. This bra is really well-constructed and very comfortable. The 70 band fits snugly on the second (out of 4) set of eyes. Same as my other EM's in a 70 back, that I've been wearing on the 2nd hook from the start and progressed to the 3rd hooks on thinner days or between washings. Fine by me and as I've found Ewa's bands to be pretty stretchy-but-sturdy, I wouldn't go for a 65.

    So in this bra's shoulder/armpit area, I don't know what magic they used but the straps do not bother my armpits - at all. On my first EM (Kwiaty, S style) the straps were wayyy too wide set and I've altered them since. On Kicia, my second (PL style) it was better, but on this SM the strap placement is awesome. Hoping Ewa will apply this to more future bras! Also, the wires are nice and low under my armpits! Chafing straps and poking wires often bother me, but this really is a happy-armpit-bra 🙂 Yay!

    However this bra is probably 95% but not 100% perfect, some small issues considering projection / size:
    The wires are quite narrow (feels like a smidge too narrow, perhaps?). After wearing, the wire marks on the side do align well with my breast root / IMF but under my boobs, the marks are a bit too low. This is often an issue for me (and usually much worse), with buckling / folds & 'orange in a glass' in bras with insufficient projection. In this bra, the projection angle is a bit weird actually. It doesn't project forward (like a 90' angle) but more upward (like a 50' angle), if that makes sense? I believe this is also what makes the wire slide down a bit. I'd almost consider a 70H for projection - and because on my bigger side, there's some in-cup quadding next to the black seams, where the powder pink fabric has more 'give' than the seam. But the cups in this size are already quite tall on me (the straps will definitely show under anything other than high-necked shirts) and the 70H Czarna was definitely big, confirming that 70GG is probably the best size for me in unlined Ewa's.

    Oh and I also bought the matching strappy briefs, which look amazing on (with many laces & straps, great design!) and fit very well in size 40. So far I've experienced Ewa's briefs and thongs to run pretty generous, as in other brands like C'Kate, Gossard etc. I normally wear 14 (42) and sometimes even upsize to 16 (44).

    So all in all, some nitpicking issues aside, Ja Wiem is great and I'm very happy with this unexpected purchase from Poland!


    P.S: Sadly the rhinestone adornments cannot be easily removed like I'd hoped, as they are actually part of the sliders to adjust the upper straps. Guess I'll have to get used to them or attach new sliders. Removing the straps is also an option but IMO this would make the bra less special?

      Thank you for the comprehensive review. I'm impressed with the lift you're getting, too.

    • Great review. How do you feel about those doubled straps in the back??

    • 3

      I suspect that doubled, harness-y type detail of the straps at the back is actually what is preventing the bra straps from bothering your armpit. It probably results in the straps sitting on your shoulders in a more comfortable position as they are angled more toward the center of your back.

    • I believe the SM runs super shallow like that in order to lift the breasts higher - some people get amazing uplift in it, esp for FOT firm types, iir

    • 1

      Looks beautiful on you! This particular bra never appealed to me either, until I saw your review and pics. I especially love the back strap detail - it really does look like it makes a big difference in comfort. The more even division of tension along the back of the band is so simple and brilliant if it directs straps and pressure to more comfortable positions. I wish she made it an option on all her bras now!

    • 1

      wendybien , Stinkmouse & chirality , you're probably right I hadn't even realized! How the back straps are probably making a difference in the way the tension is distributed. So yes I really like the look and feel of this doubled back strap 😊

      And oops, browsing EM's site to see if there's more of this double back strap glory bras: I just realized this is Ja Wiem, not Ty Wiesz.. The black&white picture on Ewa's site confused me 😬 Edited review with the right bra name!

    Hasn't set fit

    When this bra came out, i thought the triangle of black lace looked weird on this bra, and I was not at all interested in it. I only bought it because I was buying the Why Not harness panties and wanted something to coordinate, and this was on sale in my size, so . . why not.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this bra!

    First of all, i understand now why the black lace looks out of place - they arent fully attached. They are attached along the bottom seam, and then there are straps from the top that you need to attach somewhere. I ... had my husband attach them on me, and he chose what he thought looked the best. I think it looks more symmetrical on me than on Ewa's models - maybe because i'm short? IDk. But definitely coordinates well in the back with the panty

    The front of the bra has eyes at the bottom - the attached straps were able to connect nicely to the Why Not panty - ok, not hugely flattering on me, but my belly is definitely not my strong point.

    Fit-wise, seems like a pretty standard SM - i admit I didnt take any pics myself, just cropped hubby's pics (hopefully enough)

    The panties tho - yeah, I tried those on once by myself and i was glad - very complicated! Took me a while to figure out what went where! Hubby again helped me adjust the straps to look their best. We didnt play with the harness part so I cant say anything about that, but this outfit was a hit lol

    I saw this bra on Ewa Michalak's Facebook and immediately sent an email asking for it. I stupidly ordered it in a size too small, but other than that I love it so much! Since it's currently not available, I'm going to hold on to it despite being a smidge too small.

    Pros: Gorgeous lace, big bows, firm band, removable cleavage straps, full adjustable regular straps.

    Cons: Won't be 'nude' on everyone, too small (my fault), lace has loose threads all over.

      LeProfessor Yes, it comes with the straps in a convenient little pouch!

      pumkinswife I love the SM! I would recommend starting with a BM or an SF cut first. The fabric is a little thing and hide nipples better.

      This is one of my favorite bras that Ewa Michalak has recently released. I hope she continues to use more embroidery in the future!

    65GG

    Fits

    I don't ever want to wear another bra. I adore this Bm Szmaragd, it's comfortable, subtly sexy, understated, well-made, accomodating to asymmetry and varying fullness throughout one's cycle. It's so reliable and kind I half expected it to ask me how my day was when I took it off last night.
    I want every single one now! I'm honestly still a bit in shock - it's hard to believe the comfort of wires that are narrow enough, a band that supports without being tight, and a bra that feels attractive but isn't at all garish or risque.

    I was lucky enough to ... acquire this bra (brand new with tags) in a sale from Anya99 , who was incredibly helpful and knowlegeable about her "inventory". I would never have suspected a 65GG would be the right size for me in any bra (though it does seem more and more like bra sizes are useful only to estimate the correct size within particular brands and even cuts. It's a depressing thing when you get one bra to fit and then realize you'll have to keep going through the process of trial and error with each new brand or style you try. This realization had made me even more aware of the importance of adding measurements, reviews and pictures here, particularly for new styles. I am so lucky to be able to benefit from the experience and experiments of this entire community). The Ewa Michalak website does say to size down in the Bm, and I'm certainly glad I didn't let my worries about the size deter me from trying this bra. For comparison, I will include that I found a Comexim plunge in 65M to fit, but Comexim 3HCs in 65M and 65N were both too small in the cups (probably due to lack of immediate projection). I purchased 2 CHPs in the same sale from Anya99: 60HH - Ewa Michalak » Chp Klaudyna (747) and 60HH - Ewa Michalak » Chp Owoce Leśne (573) , both of which also fit quite well. It's possible that the CHPs would be better in a 60J or 65HH, but I've lost 40 pounds this year and am working on losing another 25 or so, so it seems best to err on the side slightly too small than too big or eventual gaping. Plus, this is the largest size in a 65 band offered for the Bm style before a custom fee is required (and 60 bands are all custom), so it's a good size to stick with as long as it fits!

    This bra is beautiful, comfortable and very suited to soft tissue, close set breasts and center heaviness. Plus it has immediate projection aplenty. The bottom of the gore is only 1.2" wide (see my picture of this detail) and this seems to help drastically as far as avoiding falling out of cups into the center. I think the shape is quite natural but still nicely rounded.

      Wow, that is gorgeous. Reminds me of how my BM Naomi fits me. Makes me think maybe I should try one of those!

    • also, grats on the weight loss. I've been steadily gaining, but heading in to menopause and eating my way through school right now. I dont think weight loss is in the cards in the near future.

      BM is also currently my favorite EM style; I currently own a 75F that is way too big in the band and also too small in the cups and it's still one of my favorite bras. Can't wait to get my Naomi!!

      My usual EM size is more like 70/GG, though I think I could take a 65 and am sometimes tempted because the 70 is so comfy right out of the box... so that the equivalent of a 70FF works even as well as it does is impressive.

      Beautiful on you and great fit! Once you try EM it's hard not to want all their bras...every. single. one. :)

      I'm so thrilled that all 3 bras fit you so well!! And a giant, sincere thank you to both you and love4pollinators for the very kind words. You ladies are the best! ☺

      Congrats on finding bras that you love! EM is the best thing that ever happened to my boobs. The BM and SF cuts are my favorite for comfort and fit, but I like to rock the S and PL styles when I want super-cleavage, even though they aren't technically my best fit. I understand what you mean about wanting all the bras - I have 9 of them, with another on order...and this is just since April of this year. :-) Oops!

      Looks amazing, and I love the color. Glad it's so comfortable!

      LadyInBlue that makes me hopeful for my incoming Sf...!

    • 2

      I have the beige and the black SFs and I'm waiting on that purple one. I love my SFs! The SF style gives me a little more "oomph" than the BM style, but they are both equally comfortable, IMO. The seams seam to be a tad more prominent, but I really don't care - with my 32GGs, I think everyone has figured out that I'm probably wearing a bra. LOL

      chirality, thanks for your lower gore measurement!!! That dimension is critical for me, too. I'll follow your lead and post photos of lower gore measurements, too :-) :-)

    • 1

      Love4Pollinators I'm trying to do this too, FYI.

    • rainbrasspetals and @chiarilty Some of my bras have 1" differences in lower gore width when I stretch the band. Whoa. So, now I'm trying to stretch the band while I measure.

    • 1

      It seems like it would be best to do it while wearing the bra for most accurate measurement :|a

    • 1

      Love4Pollinators rainbrasspetals Yay! I'm so excited you're going to try to measure your lower gores too!
      I never even thought about stretch though! I'm sure this has a big impact but I'm not sure what the best way to incorporate that into the measurement would be. I think it might be kind of hard to take the measurement, and definitely hard to photograph it, while wearing - but I'll give it a shot myself and try to add pics of the wearing bra gore measurements as I wear my bras for comparison.

      However, I wonder if the stretch ratio figure, since it's based on the stretched and unstretched band measurements could be used to estimate the degree of stretch for the gore? It would be helpful if that winds up being useful because if we do the measurement while wearing the bra I think there will be some variation due to how tight we like our bands and such, which could be more confusing... as well as difficulty with measuring in the exact same place, since the landmarks to measure from would be hidden against the skin. So I'll also have a look at the stretch ratio when I compare the wearing and bra only measurements for the lower gore.

    • 1

      I'll measure unstretched and stretched as well as multiply the unstretched by the stretch ratio and plan to see the stretched lower gore width :-) Math is beautiful :-)

    • oho, clever.

    I ordered this one through Bra Obsessed. I'm SO happy to finally own a fiery bright red bra that fits! My first picture of the bra looks more orange than it really is. I wasn't sure if it would have the red and white polka dot bows like the M Scarlet. I'm really glad it doesn't. It only has one small bow on the gore. I was told that the CHP can't be made with shiny cups like the BM Bibi Scarlet. The front side of the band and the embroidery are shiny though. Something I noticed quickly was that the straps on this bra aren't as thick as my other CHP's. I'm happy about this because the straps will be easier to hide. Though, the strap on my larger side was rolling a bit. The gore doesn't tack perfectly; the very top of it lifts up a bit. But it doesn't rest on any tissue and I find the bra very comfortable. From now on I will buy 65 bands through EM.

      This looks really good on you! Would you considering adding measurements? I'm wondering how it fits compared to other Chps.

    • Love the fit and fabric: beautiful!!

    • 2

      Thanks so much!! :) I have always felt a nice red bra is a lingerie essential. I will measure it as soon as I can!

    • Wow, that bra is gorgeous!! Fits you very well!

    • KBoo_21 Thank you!! This is my best fitting bra right now and it's even more exciting because it's so pretty :D

    I love this bra! The teal blue with the black looks amazing. It is a deep plunge cut and can give a lot of cleavage. It fits great with or without cookies, I will upload some photos without cookies later. This is the best fit I've gotten from an EM bra so far. Also the plunge cut kind of reminds me of the VS bras I used to wear, but this is a much better fit with narrower wires and deeper cups than any VS bra.

    65FF

    Fits

    WOW!!!!!!! And, OMG....WOW!!! Lol! This bra is BEYOND sexy!!! I love it! I wasn't sure if the 65FF would fit as nicely after not having the same luck with the Czarna Mgielka and Kusidelko in a 65FF. And with my Wanilla being a perfect fit in the 60G, I wasn't sure what to expect. But this bra fits like a glove!! Like it was made for my girls https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I was only able to upload a couple pics, the site wasn't cooperating. I've been having a lot of trouble lately trying to upload my pics. It's been taking forever, or it says ... the site is under maintenance. I'll try again a little later.

    I will say, tho, I thought this bra was more of a pink color. But it's not. It's def a tannish nude, like the Kusidelko and Nana Bezowa. I was a bit upset when I took the bra out of the package and noticed one of the rhinestones was missing on the adjustable strap - not like Ewa to slip up like that. But no biggie. I did have to tighten the straps a great deal, they seemed a bit longer than usual, but I think it has to do with the design of the back of the straps. I also had to hook the band on the second to last hook. The band seems a bit stretchier than usual, but it could just be me. The width of the wires are perfect, the depth of the cups are perfect. The gore tacks nicely and isn't a problem. I really have no complaints about this bra at all. And it was surprisingly very comfy!!! I only tried it on for a few minutes, though. But such a lovely bra, and it gives a nice shape as well. Very very pleased https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I also bought the matching briefs with this, and I didn't have the same luck with those. They were too big and baggy for me, seemed a bit on the larger side for a 36.

    But I highly recommend this bra!!! If you're really looking for something SUPER sexy, stylish, supportive AND comfy, this is that bra!!!!

      It looks incredible on you!

      This is absolutely gorgeous on you! Ugh to have the upper fullness to make something like this look good... Oh well, Ewa will probably come out with more bondagey ones since these have done so well.

      Thank you ladies :) If you've been considering purchasing this bra, DO IT!!! Haha!!! So far, everyone I've seen it on looks amazing! And the little straps above the cup are adjustable, so it could definitely work with less upper pole, I would think. This is my absolute FAV EM bra right now!!!!!

    • 1

      It's so amazing!!! And looks great on you!
      I've read somewhere that it runs smaller, is it true?

    • 1

      Thank you :) I wouldn't say that it runs small, but true to size. I usually wear a 65FF in EM, and this was no different. Other EM bras I've tried (SM unlined) in a 65FF didn't fit as nicely and perfectly as this one does.

    • oh such shame! i love it so much but have to pass on it :(
