The very best adjective I could think of to describe this bra would be "decadent." The materials remind me of a period dress out of Anna Karenina or some sort of historical drama about European aristocracy In the promotional pictures it appeared more of a true violet, which is what prompted me to to originally buy it, as purple is my ultimate favorite color-- in general but especially in lingerie! In person it's actually a saturated burgundy overlaid with magenta scalloped lace, dark pink ribbons, and a dangling pearl charm identical to that of the S Orzechowa Pralinka. A frilly, semi-sheer trim ...(which oddly reminds me of the texture of a sea anemone?) lines the band and cups. I was afraid all these fanciful details would make the bra super impractical for causal use, but impressively enough it's completely smooth even under my inexpensive jersey t-shirts. The soft inner cup lining and satiny band are so comfortable that I forget I'm wearing a bra during the day, however I did have to hook it on the second setting straight out of the box. I have to admit that the S style is my least favorite shape-wise and can sometimes appear torpedo-ish in profile, although this one definitely gives a comparably rounder and more flattering shape beneath shirts and dresses than does my Syrena in the same size. It's a fun and vibrant bra in a frivolous sort of way! Read more 138 more words
Such a stunning bra. Pictures don't exactly capture the true colour of it. I find the band tts fairly firm but I am also coming from wearing 34 bands on my 29" underbust. The beautiful feminine touches Ewa michalak is known for don't disappoint with this one. The delicate frills and the bottom of the band as well as the top of the cups give the gorgeous magenta satin a vintage vibe. The pearl dangle on the gore ties everything together in a beautiful turn of the century(19th) vibe. I wore it all day Christmas and it's extremely comfortable. I also bought the matching stringi (thong) which is ...gorgeous I didn't wear it yet as I had a skirt on that day but having tried it it seems quite comfortable and tts in the 36. Not quite as stretchy as the Letnia Noc thong. So happy I didn't hesitate and bought this one as it sold on quite quickly. I could've worn a 70J too but I'm starting to enjoy a nice firm band glad I decided to order custom. I am disappointed that Ewa doesn't just make my size without being custom so unfortunately I won't always be splurging on the correct band size. 65JJ seems to be my perfect S size Read more 116 more words
A gorgeous bra but not for tshirts due to the lacy ruffle and lace trim at the top of the cups. Fits like a 32H/34GG, so true to size. Very well made, as usual. Straps are wide set, fully adjustable. Interior of cups has removable cookies.
