I’ve seen this bra on bra blogs in the past and always loved the print and design but, never actually thought I would own it because it was old news by the time I saw it.
This is definitely a granny floral though I love the colours. I like that it is not like the sexy boudoir stuff that they’ve been doing lately. I love the peach satin strip lining the cup edge and straps.
As for the fit…I had initially liked the S cut but when I was in between the 65FF and 65G I was concerned about the immediate depth and the very aggressive uplift. I ...avoided the S until I saw this one listed. This one is better. I think it’s maybe a bit deeper and my weight loss perhaps makes it fit better.
I do wish it had a set of cookies as I feel like it is borderline big for me now. I was down about 10 pounds when I got it initially, and about 15 pounds now. I feel like I could use the little boost. The band is fairly stretchy or stretched out. I can definitely get it done up a set of hooks in.
I do like this bra though. Read more 100 more words
My first Ewa S bra. I waited literally months for this thing! Surprisingly a better fit than I thought it would be. The band is TTS. It possibly has more room at the wire than other S bras? It is too tall in the cups for my smaller side, but I don't think I could size down. Such is life with short roots. Full write up on the blog.
This is a good-fitting, supportive, quality bra. I have to hunch a lot to get any gaping and the bra looks and feels like it gives a decent amount of projection. I don't feel like it is taking my breasts and flattening them out like the Comexim Rita and Adore. I love the built-in cookie holders. The inner lining of this bra is softer than the Comexims too. I also love that the band is small for a 28 as I have a 25" ribcage. The look of the bra is pretty good- not necessarily my favourite pattern but not bad. The straps are pretty wide-set, but OK. Also, I had to adjust them to their tightest setting even though I'm not really petit. The seams are somewhat visible with thin t-shirts. The shape it gives is just a little bit pointy, but not bad. It gives a nice amount of cleavage.
This bra is so pretty! It's possibly one of my favorite designs/color palettes from Ewa Michalak. I was expecting the straps and hooks on the back to be white, but they are actually a very very pale pink! It's so pretty next to the peach color in the bra. I was worried that the ribbon across the top would cut in like the Comexims I've tried with ribbon along the edge… but it doesn't cut in at all! It's slightly more closed off, but I feel like it actually keeps my boobs in place a little better. It doesn't create any quad boob at all. The fabric is super soft and luxurious feeling and the bra is super comfortable - I almost forget that I'm wearing it! I LOVE this bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I love this bra! It is beautiful, extremely soft, and does a great job of keeping everything front and center. The pictures I took don't really illustrate just how well this bra pulls everything up and out! I ordered this bra through Zathiya Lingerie just so I could start trying out EM's bras. Directly converting my size would give me a 70J, and unfortunately they didn't have anything in that size, so I went for the sister size of 75HH. As I expected, this bra was a bit big in the band for me. It's not horribly big but I can wear it on the last set of hooks ...right out of the bag (I almost considered keeping it because I could make it work I think, but then I remembered the price and figured I may as well get something that fits). The band is fairly stretchy though it seems to run a little bit small. The cups, which should be the same volume as I usually wear, also run a bit small. I might go up a cup size but its not horribly quadding so I may not (if anyone wants to give me their two cents on this, feel free!) However if you're functionally full on top, I would definitely go up a size! The straps are very wide set and I expected them to be an issue, but they aren't at all! They basically sit outside of my breast tissue and come up diagonally so that they sit very well on my shoulders. The wires are also very narrow, which is perfect for me. I think that this bra would be perfect (or almost perfect) if I had ordered it in the correct size. Read more 178 more words
This is literally the only S cut bra that I have had that actually fit correctly. I feel like this one has a lot more depth at the wire with shorter cups than average. I have no other S to compare with it as they don't usually fit me well, but I do distinctly remember never being able to keep the wires in my IMF. This is an exception. It stays put, it looks nice, and it's extremely comfortable. I would like to see more S cuts using this pattern in my size range but I'm too afraid this one was an anomaly and don't want to waste my money.
I love this bra, but it’s too small for me sadly. The cups in Colette seem a bit more closed on top than in other S bras because of the unstretchy ribbon. I am slightly FoT and get quite a lot of quadboob here, even without the pads. But I guess that this might be partly because of the tighter band as well. Also, my previous 60FF S bra fits well but is already too small if I put the pads in. I ordered this in 55G because my most of my 60/28 bands are a bit loose. This one is definitely tighter than what I’m used to, and ...it stretches exactly to my comfortably tight ribcage measurement. I’ve only tried this on shortly, so I’m not sure how well it would work in a longer wear. I'd probably need to start out with an extender. I liked the print in the online images, but I adore it in person. To me it looks like a mixture of an impressionist painting and a sepia-toned vintage photograph that is brightened up by the coral color. I love coral! Together with the ribbons and the creamy lace, it’s a lot of things going on but it all just works so well together. This bra looks perfect! I also got the thong in size 36. They are equally gorgeous and I love the cut. However, these seem a bit stretchier than other EM panties I have in the same size.
I will definitely reorder Colette in a bigger size at some point, because I don’t think I can live without this bra in my life. (Pictures are taken without the pads.) Read more 167 more words
This bra fits me like an absolute dream! It's one of my favorite S bras. This one is extremely round and the fabric is so soft. The ribbon makes it a bit closed on top so it doesn't gape at all. I find the print to look a little bit odd irl, but once I put it on I was so thrilled with the fit I didn't care.
I absolutely love this one! The colors are gorgeous, and the coral contrast is perfect. I reach for this one at least once a week. That is saying a lot considering that I have over 40 Polish bras. lol.
Amazing projection and fit. Ordered directly from EM Outlet and received in 4 days via DHL. Material is soo pretty and super soft. Sad matching panties are gone https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
The floral pattern has a very vintage look to it - it's very pretty.
Thanks carrythedollhouse . Agreed with the vintage which is probably why I like it so much.
I adore that updated vintage look! So pretty!
Thank you confused ! I have a matching pair of high waisted bottoms but they’re too large for me. The previous owner cinched the waist in some so they fit but, it’s not a full alteration so the proportions are still a bit off (I knew that they had done a quickie job on the bottoms so I was ok with that).
