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 already 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 132 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 . 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 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 164 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.
ORIGINAL REVIEW OCTOBER 2015: I've been struggling with quad-boob for so long that it's kind of refreshing to have the opposite problem: a bit of gapping at the top of the cup. I'm, I'm not full enough on top for this bra! That's never happened to me! It's a small gap, and I can fill it by inhaling, and the bra is otherwise comfortable and a good fit, so it's going right into the collection. The trend in my tissue migration has been to fill out even more on top/front, so if that continues, this bra will be a perfect fit.
The material is soft and jersey-like, with ...firm padding (including removable pads, which I'll be wearing on this one). The bra has nice, wide, removable straps, like the discontinued Chp models. It also comes with standard straps to swap in. The straps are removable on both sides, so the bra could be worn as a strapless or criss-crossed. I haven't tried it in those configurations.
REVISED REVIEW MAY 2017: Of all my Ewa Michalak S's, this is the one that has continued to fit the best as I grew in projection, probably because it was a little big to begin with. Read more 99 more words
I bought this bra predominantly for its functionality rather than for appearances or fit (although both of those are important as well), and it certainly serves in that regard. It comes with both extra-wide padded comfort straps and regular straps (half- and fully-adjustable respectively), plus one slightly longer strap for the halterneck conversion. Those backless shirts are yours for the taking with this baby! The bra looks nice enough as well, the seams are very hidden and don't poke out through clothing, the gore detail is minimal (a diamante, which explains the name!) and all up it's a great plain black functional bra.
My biggest disappointment with the Diament ...is the quality of the bra - not in terms of the manufacturing which is up to EM's usual high standards, but of the materials used. The outside of the cups are a rough felt-feeling material, the cookie pockets are a saving grace otherwise it would be much more uncomfortable to wear. Nothing like the gorgeous satiny cups of my 70GG - Ewa Michalak » S Przeplatanki (716). I'm also amazed at how stretchy the band is - I put it on and it had regular tension on the loosest hooks, then when I went to scoop-and-swoop it was riding up like crazy at the front, re-clipped the band and I went straight to the 3rd hooks! I think this is a material issue as well, to the point that I would recommend sizing down in the band.
In terms of the technical fit on me, I found that the cups ran a bit big (compared to my 70H - Ewa Michalak » S Marcepanowa Magnolia (695) bought at the same time) and even the most thorough scoop wouldn't fill them, even with the cookies. The gore floats at the top but I'm way too centre-projected to get a tacking gore in the S cut. I could probably do with a cup size down, but I think the gore would become too problematic at that point. In the halter position however these issues aren't hugely noticeable, and that's the only way I plan on wearing this bra. Read more 251 more words
