This is one band size up from the S Opium I just tried and one cup volume up. I still had to remove the pads. Unfortunately this bra is comfortable on the tightest hooks alreadyhttps://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> this material seems to be much more stretchy than the material in the opium band.
The straps popped off 4x while I was just trying to adjust myself into this contraption. I flipped the straps from right side to left side so I would be hooking them in backwards and they have not popped off again. Yet.
This shape is stupefying. I seriously want to to take ...myself out to dinner. I hope I invite myself in afterwards, too.
I do not sense any quadboob. The gore is not tacking very firmly compared to what I've grown accustomed too from panache and Cleo. But my other EM bras do not tack that firmly, either. Is this some sort of common knowledge?
I love the matte fabric of this bra. And I have waited my whole life for cushioned straps like these. I'm so serious. I can't wait to show them to my husband. He has told me that I need something like this for a very long time.
I really do not want to part with this bra. At all. But it's on the tightest hook already. Guess it's time to email Aisha and ask for a 65KK. Lord D: Read more 134 more words
The S Diament Multiway in this cup range is a 4 part construction, with three vertical panels on the lower half and an upper horizontal section. It fully padded and also comes with extra pads/cookies for asymmetry or if you want that extra oomph in your wardrobe https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> [I personally did not use the cookies because I was quadding when I wore them]. A pair of thick comfort straps are supplied. Which I can attest are comfortable however, they are not fully adjustable due to their nature, so if you're short, you may have some problems with that one. The bra also ...comes with three regular straps (I suppose two are for the cross-back and one is for the halter style?). I will say however, that the straps do not seem up to the regular EM quality and they feel rather thin and it is not what I've come to expect from the brand.
Both the minimum and maximum cup depth were taken for this bra, but I usually add the maximum cup depth in the measurements table. These were measured at 14.5 inches and 12.3 inches respectively. The maximum cup depth was measured by stretching the cup over the knee and the minimum cup depth by hovering the cup between the knees and hanging the tape measure and recording that value. I should probably mention that measuring the cup depths were a bit tricky. for me, when it comes to a padded bra, so there is some room for error here.
The band measures 23 inches not stretched and 27.5 inches stretched. This is also probably one of the few bras I can hook on the last hook (the least tightest one) without any issues. Yaaaay. As with all EM bras, there are four columns of hooks.
I was hoping (even though I expected it not to) this bra could double as a strapless (I know, I know, it was not advertised as such, but hey...it could have been possible) but I wouldn't recommend it. This bra, gives an incredible amount of lift at the bottom section (maybe because of the 2 vertical seams plus the padded nature of the bra?)...but it kinds of just leaves the upper part to flop wherever it wishes to, I guess that's in part due to my soft tissue..lol..this is why the straps comes in handy. To help give that section some structure. I must say there isn't any noticeable quadding, which i consider a win, well as long as i don't force tack. But let's face it, that gore is not going to be tacking any time soon. It's a common issue with my bras, so I mostly ignore it.
I also notice, that when compared to the unlined bras, there's a whole lot more uncovered tissue..so what this means is that you can expect some jiggling at the top..the bottom section is quite firm and holds the breast in place however.
One odd thing about the fit that I've noticed with a preliminary try-on however, is that towards the side/corner/near to the straps..but not the strap gap..if that makes any sense..there is some amount of empty space. I don't see if I'm standing regularly, but it does appear at times. I could always put in the pads, but then I'll be quadding. I haven't worn it for any length of time to determine if this will be a problem..but for now it's fine, I guess.
I ordered this bra through MagdaBras4you and her service, as always, was good (^_^) . She kept us informed every step of the way Read more 495 more words
I think EM is making her bands tighter all around, as I used to wear a 70HH in S model bras, but now even a 75H is far too tight. The 80GG is just a *wee* bit loose, but I've discovered I much prefer EM bras to be a bit too loose over too tight, as they tend to fit oddly and the wires become extremely uncomfortable when the band is too tight.
I owened a PL Onyks years ago, but my boobs have since grown several cup sizes and I have sold it elsewhere. When I saw this bra come out, with its beautiful matte black padding and ...dreamy comfort straps, I knew it must be mine.
The cups on this fit perfectly (as much as I love my CHPs, the fit on S model bras have always moulded to my chest best. guess my breasts fall into the "difficult" category), However, I have figured out that this bra fits me best with the pad out of the right side cup, which holds my larger breast.
*Tip to those who have issues with the comfort straps!* Try loosening the strap and taking out the pads, if the bra has them. I thought I'd have to get rid of this bra when I first received it, as I couldn't get the damn strap on the right side to remain attached for anything, but when I loosened the strap itself and then took out the cookie, the strap stayed put without issue. Thank gods, because the padded strap is wonderful.
I also appreciate the simply jeweled decal in the middle, rather than some of the more ridiculously sized and misplaced decals they've had as of late.The last couple of EM bras I've purchased, I immediately cut off the decal because mega sized bows/antique granny broaches/pastel pom-poms are not really my jam.
Otherwise, the shape I get from this is lovely and pert, if not a little pointy. I find it's best to wear this model bra with looser fitting clothes, as it definitely accentuates my chest quite a bit, esp. compared to my Comexim plunges. With tighter clothing, I feel like this bra adds some bulk and non-existent lbs. to my figure, but that could be all in my head. Read more 267 more words
So I'd read that attaching/detaching the straps was an issue with this model (as in, incredibly difficult), looks like that's been solved. Tho' I will say that inserting the hook toward your center rather than away makes them more stable. They came attached facing the other way and kept popping off as I attempted to put on the bra.
As with the other S I've tried, I sized up in the cup to get enough depth, but I've got a slight shape mismatch at the top; just don't have the upper fullness the bra wants. The cookie inserts pretty much clear up the issue on my larger breast, there ...is still a wee amount on the smaller. It's not unlike what I experienced with the Freya 36G - Freya » Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234) , but with less coverage. It's not a deal breaker here, but I will most likely steer clear of S cuts in the future unless I can try one on before buying since wire width and depth at the wire are otherwise perfect, so I'm not sure going with my usual cup size would fix the issue.
Not that I have really any exposed back or halterneck tops, but now I have a good reason to get one. Also, I like the racerback option, since the straps on this bra are a bit further apart than I'm used to and I have tiny shoulders. In the usual configuration the straps placement was okay but close to too wide territory.
Will update this review should I encounter other issues or points of note. Read more 158 more words
This is a lovely multi-way bra that gives me a rounded sort of centered and uplifted shape with great cleavage. I got a lot of attention the night I wore it https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />. The fabric is soft and it was very comfortable. It comes with 2 sets of straps plus one for a halter neck. One set is wide and the other is a more standard width. I'm not a fan of wide or halter but it is a nice option.
Unfortunately I have two issues with it. I'm a UK 34G and was unsure what size to order. After a bunch ...of research I ordered the 75H and it is not quite right. The band is very stretchy and I had to start on the tightest hooks. The cup almost fits but gaps at the top. The only way I can wear it is to tighten the straps a lot and cross them in the back or clip them. They popped off several times probably because they were so tight.
I don't know if a smaller size would be better. A 70 band looks to be much too small but maybe it is as stretchy as this one?
This bra is a so fantastically comfortable. I am narrow and short rooted, even to FOT but functionally FOB to even due to roots, center full with soft tissue and moderate projection. This bra fits me to perfection - after wearing for 9 hours it was just as dreamy as when I put it on. The fabrics are all soft, smooth and sturdy; the design is great with details like wide band elastic for comfort. The multiway comes with two sets of straps - one set is partially adjustable comfort straps, which have the standard 0.75" wide flat strap behind the shoulder and a padded, tapered portion going ...over the shoulder to the cup that goes up to 1.25" at widest. The other set of straps includes two fully adjustable standard length 0.75" straps for regular straps or racer back, and a long strap for a halter neck. The strap connection is sturdy, I've heard some others have experienced slippage with vigorous activity but so far no problems here. The shape is, as Ewa Michalak describes, rounded with a slight peak; with the removable cookies in I have really fabulous cleavage. Without the cookies I just have great cleavage https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> This is my first Ewa Michalak S cut, but will definitely not be my last. The stretched band is the same as my BM Szmaragd was when new, but this bra feels comfortable without an extender than BM did. I still use an extender for full day wearing. The gore is slightly wider than BM Szmaragd or SM Czarna Mgielka as it does not overlap at the wires. Read more 166 more words
This bra is beautiful, elegant, soft and black with a dainty gore detailing. Ewa’s multiway hooks are different, and her straps now click on easier, though the lace on them feels firmer and slightly itchier — maybe that will amends with washing? The bra itself is lovely.
Disappointed does not begin to cover how I feel about the fit of this bra. I eagerly waited 6 weeks for something that doesn’t fit me in any way. I have another Ewa multiway in 60H, where the only issue was a too tight band. I ordered 65GG to maintain cup size (or slightly shrink it by Ewa’s standards) while giving me ...a comfy band. However, this bra is so, so much worse in terms of fit.
These photos were taken with cookies in, and still I am far from fitting the cups. The band is so tight and itchy that it is painful and hard to breathe. The wires go back too far on my body, the straps are too wide, and the bra is painfully cutting into my underarms. With or without cookies, I am not filling the bottom, and my boobs are pushing the wires down and away from my body. The wires are painfully digging in under each boob, and gore is painfully digging in because it is too high. Overall, it is a complete fit flop. Read more 119 more words
It's very comfortable and it's really close to fitting, so much so that I may have the band altered to make it fit. I swear I ordered 65 J but checking back on everying it's showing I ordered 70 HH. I had been told by multiple people to size up so I didn't worry about it. The band is super stretchy I can fit both fists in it on the smallest hook. The straps are changeable and I can make them crisscross or even use as a halter. I've got some center fullness as well as bottom fullness. I've recently tried some full cup bras and they are just way too big on top so, haven't had much luck. I'm starting to think this is the best it's going to get for me.
This bra is definitely the comfiest one I own (likely because I've grown again so it's the closest one I have to fitting).
The band is a little stretchier than most 32 bands, stretching to about 32.5 inches. I love the padded straps. Straps have never bugged be before, but I guess I didn't realize what I was missing out on. They are bordering on unwearably wide, though. I also had to swap the straps from the way they came so that the openings face inward in the front. They kept falling off the other way, but I haven't had an issue since switching the two straps.
The cups fit a little smaller than I expected, but again it's possible that I've just grown more than I realized.
Lifts beautifully. I love this bra, and I love that you can change the straps. Only thing that I don't like is the super stretchy band, there are four rows and I prefer to wear it at the second tightest hook for best fit.
