    60KK

    Didn't fit

    S Diament Multiway (60KK) is a smooth black bra in a satin finish that comes with 3 sets of removable straps. The straps are a standard pair, a “padded for comfort” pair that are wider over the shoulders, and then a 3rd longer singular strap to use in halter style. The cups are standard S style format, with 3 lower sections and one upper horizontal section. It is lightly foam lined, and comes with removable cookies.

    Details/oddities noted:
    I have tried 9 S style bras so far, and this one is definitely unique. The cups have a lot more give to them than the others which is odd and makes ... this one a lot less supportive. The unstretched cup measures smaller than my other S style 60KK bras, yet the stretched cup measures larger than my 60L S style bras. I haven’t compared the foam density yet, but this one has different qualities for sure.

    As for fit:
    I do not rock this bra like Frazzleberry does, that is for sure!

    The cups fit almost like my 60L Zielony currently does (hugging my breasts perfectly but with a bit more spillage) *except* for the base of the cup, which is too shallow and won’t let my breasts into its sacred space. While the S style is notoriously shallow, I haven’t experienced this much lower cup resistance before, even within the same size.

    With the straps on, the cups are small but should still be wearable under most of my shirt choices, though the bottom of the cup issue is less than ideal. I planned on wearing this one without the straps, but the bra structure is not as sturdy as my other S style bras, so unfortunately the cups collapse horribly without the straps on, so that is out. (And yes, I know that it specifically states on Ewa’s site that this one is not intended to be worn strapless, but since I am able to wear my other S style bras without putting the straps over my shoulders, I figured this one would be perfect for that purpose.) I don’t use the cookies, though I wish I could with this one due to the structure issue. The extra padding should stabilize the bottom of the cups better, but unfortunately this would result in my nips sitting above the cup even without a swoop n scoop, so it is not an option.

    The plus is that the padded straps are super comfortable so that is what I'll be using. I can't try them as an X back though since I have the straps completely out in standard formation.

    My nips stick out the top of the cup with a Swoop n Scoop so I refrained from doing one, but I am not sure if this will be problematic with all day wear, so this one may ultimately become a no go like so many bras before it.

    Overall, I am not impressed with this bra enough to try it again in the 60L. I had higher expectations, but this one definitely fell short of my visions for it.

    I went overboard with the photos, trying to capture the shape difference and oddities of the fit without the straps, with the halter strap, and with the padded comfort straps. Hopefully it is helpful instead of annoying for those considering this bra.

    And for the technical aspects:
    All measurements are taken prior to trying the bra on to insure no figure is obscured by the body. I also take all flat measurements before taking the stretched cup then band measurements for the same reason.

    The band measures 22” and stretches to a max of 28.5”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 12”
    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 15”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    The cup height seemed short for this size at 8.25”, though my FC/S Belladonna Nununu was the same height. My 60Ls are all 9” tall, and the 60KK Porto was 8.5” which is more logical in comparison. The wire width is within the normal range at 6.25” wide. The gore is tall in comparison to my other S style bras at 4.25”.
    My other 60KK was 3.375”, and my 60Ls are 4” 4.5” and 4” tall. I find this odd since a taller gore typically means more stability which is not the case with this bra.

      An S that is so short. Weird! I love that though. I’m sorry it doesn’t work for you.

    • 1

      aw man that's too bad that it didn't work out :( .. I wonder if the shortness is a thing with this particular model? Looking back on my measurements, I noticed it was measured at 8.5 also...

      On another note, I also have permanent marks due to wide straps, I didn't entirely realise it until I saw the pic and was like..hey I have those lol... I also have some what seems to be permanent bruise marks from too wide wires >.>

    • 3

      I have permanent marks under my boobs from the wires rub my rib flares, marks from the gore sitting on my breast tissue, marks from too wide set straps... I feel like people don't talk about these things that happen with heavy breasts. Everyone says the marks are supposed to go away, but they just don't. I've only seen one person say that this happens, Georgie from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust.

    • 1

      Sorry this did not work out. I think all of you pictures are always very helpful because it really shows all of the angles of a bra.

    • 3

      I am assuming that the shortness has to do with the cup distortion when changing the strap positions (halter vs X back vs standard etc) so Ewa designed it shorter to lessen said distortion? That’s at least what my mental logic tells me! Maybe that is why the foam seems more flexible as well, to better accommodate the lessened horizontal volume availability?

      The shortness isn’t too much of an issue (aside from the nip slip haha) but the lack of firm structure is more alarming since the base collapses. The height may be good for you Sovavosi, but I would be concerned with the base being a big issue for you since it has even less immediate space and wants to collapse. If you want to borrow it to try out, just let me know. 💕

      Straps and wires…why must they be so body destructive? At least I know I am not alone with the permanent markings. (Thank you Frazzleberry for sharing my pain with the strap marks.)
      Aside from Panache, I never get a tack so I don’t get gore wire marks thankfully. I haven’t noticed base wire marks, though that doesn’t mean they aren’t there, just that I haven’t noticed them yet, haha.)

      I spent over two weeks without wearing straps on and it didn’t change my strap marks at all, so I can confidently say they are permanent. I assume that most women don’t talk about the marks being permanent since 80% of women are wearing the wrong size? Too big band with too small cup would result in a loose unsupportive band that wouldn’t give wire dig in and with cups too small the straps would definitely be more inset (and float off the arm area) so far less likely to produce lasting marks.

      Thank you braluv. My theory is that everyone looks for a different problem area within a bra, so the more photos the better chance of helping to answer those “visual” questions we all have, right?

      This bra was my one and only venture into S territory. I found it to be extremely jiggly and unsupportive and that's why I never tried another S.

    • 1

      Stinkmouse If mine is anything like yours, don't judge the S style on this bra! This one is not like my other S styles in fit or support. The normal S is much better.

      *I forgot to note that Kaśka discouraged me from getting this, stating it wouldn't work as well in this size range. Also, when I tried ordering it in a 60L last year I was told no.
      Why didn't I remember that? Haha!

    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:

      I have this bra and the straps popped off at some pretty inconvenient times! But it makes my boobs look great too. I wore it last night and couldn't stop looking down.

      and again, no measurements? sigh. if you actually measure the band, you can see if its an unusually stretchy one or if this is really too big a band size for you

      Take yourself out to dinner! That was so cute and yet so relatable when the girls are looking mighty fine. Beautiful bra on you! ❤️

    • 1

      PS: the soft tacking gore I have read is due to thinner wires on polish brands. I tend to overlook it but maybe ask when you email if that is okay in your size.

    • 1

      Just FYI, the padded straps may be too short to do a racerback. I need them almost all the way out to wear regularly, and since the padded part doesn't stretch I think they're a bit shorter than a normal strap.

    • 1

      Please give a quick measure before you send it back if you do , this is my size range and very little measurements are in bratabase as you know .

      It does look amazing on . I am kinda in love with my own figure in my Ewa michalak bras too ..

    • 2

      dbmamaz & Ivp I am considering measuring. I have never measured a bra before >:/ seems like a gigantic pain in the ass lol. But I do know it will benefit you guys. I'm fairly certain that this band is just very stretchy due to the material. The opium 65 band is NOTHING like this band.

    • 4

      It's not so hard! Once you get into the measurements section where you add the bra, there's guiding photos to show you how to do it for each measurement. You can do it :)

    • 4

      dbmamaz @roxanneloves bras OK I measured the bra and posted the measurements

    • yes, thanks! but 31 is pretty reasonable for a 70 band.

    • 2

      Well when I got the S Opium in a 65 band, I assumed that I needed a 70 band in the S type of bras. Guess i… should have measured the Opium >:/

    • 1

      Stinkmouse Yeah, I think that the Opium fabric is a little stretchier than most. I have it in the CHP cut, but my 70 band stretches to about 33 inches (and most of my other 72 bands are like 32 or a little under)

    • kermitdafrog21 did you mean most of your other 70 bands?

    • kermitdafrog21 the 65JJ S Opium I ordered was so tight I have no idea how I even clasped it closed. It was much tighter than my 3 other 65 bands. So… this is interesting!

    • 1

      My S opium in 70J was insanely tight, even with an extender. It measured 31.5", but the fabric was really uncomfortable for some reason. Even with an extender it felt really tight.

    • 1

      Thanks for the measurements :) I was most interested in the depth , the band looks great too .. I know now to pick a 70 band in this model and maybe a kk in the cup wonder how tall kk cups are ?

    • 1

      Oh... Well never mind then!

    • Ewa Michalak bands are just very inconsistent. I've been ordering 75 bands because I got 2 70s from her which only stretched to 30 of 30.5 inches - unwearable without an extender.

      My 75s usually need to be done on the 2nd hook right away and 3rd hook on 2nd wearing after a wash, but the SF in a 75 band was tight - but not tight enough to need an extender.

      So you kinda have to pick a band and just accept that sometimes you might need an extender or it might be on the 3rd hook right away. She does say (sometimes) on the website if its a tight band - the SF does say its tight. But even with that, the bands are inconsistent.

    Hasn't set fit

    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

    • Thank you for mentioning the flimsy straps now used. I am glad it's not just my imagination!

      The side view looks amazing. The front view makes me worry you'll fall out. 😬

    • 1

      I know right? I was like there's now way these puppies won't be trying to escape..but when doing a leaning test, I actually spill way more out of my SF than with this bra? That's not to say there isn't some amount of spillage, I think it's just that it lifts it so much and then just leaves the upper part to mostly fend for itself..XDD

      You're not alone.. idk what is even going on with the straps..

    • 1

      Wonderful review. So much potential for being a strapless. It does look great from the side profile. The straps are disappointing. I also thought the straps on my bra were kinda flimsy, but being my first EM bra, I wasn’t sure if it was normal or not.

    • 1

      My latest order (received last week) was my first to have cheap straps so it is something new for sure. My last Comexim order (or two?) had the same thin flimsy straps as well which was weird. Definitely not what you'd expect from either company.

      Glad it passed the lean test Frazzleberry!

    I will try to touch all important subjects but firstly about my shape and size: I measure as a 26G - 28F and am projected, narrow root width and FOB, soft tissue.

    Appearance I like the simple yet elegant fabric thats been used. It looks and feels well made. Not too keen on the rhinestone used in the middle but thats fine.
    It has seams and usually that doesnt bother me but I think its worth mentioning that these are very visible.

    Straps: Arent fully adjustable(I wish!) and will be too long for petites. Fortunately I can get away with it when I X it at the back ... since they are removeable. Wearing this bra strapless wont work though.
    The non adjustable parts are quite thick.

    Wire: I would say its definitely quite narrow. On the sides its not completely in my IMF but close. It goes up quite high an pokes my ribcage/underarm. Not sure if the rest of the wire sits in my IMF. Not a lot of red marks because I went up a band size.

    Depth: The projection at the apex is great, immidiate projection at the wire? not so much. The cup is a bit big and I can get away with it because of that I think

    Overall I hope that the poking wire gets less, because I think it gives an forward and upward lifted shape

    P.s: runs about a cup size smaller

      The S isn't terribly projected at the wire in this size, which is a bummer since people in the larger cups seem to love it. It's also a lot of bra for smaller frames. In theory, I like the S, but it just looks like the bra is wearing me whenever I try one.

      I think the M cut is the best overall for petite people needing wire projection and wanting a padded bra; if you can get on with the low gore, maybe you'd like that cut more.

      jlcl119 thank you! I will check the M cut out!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    75H

    Didn't fit

    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?

    • A 75 should be a 34, but Ewa has some quality assurance issues. I find that her newer models seem better about band consistency, but this is an older model. and I would wear the same cup size as UK in unlined, and 1 cup size up in lined (this is a lined model)

    • I also found this particular bra to run really stretchy in the band (mine's a 70 band). Also, if the straps keep popping off, try swapping them. I found that they always fell off when I wore them the way they came, but they stayed on much better when switched.

    75F

    Fits

    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.

      I have this bra and love it - actually. I'm wearino it right now. However, the one strap popped off 3 times on one night, probably due to unusual vigorous activity (drinking and dancing). Now I'm careful not to swing my arms around too much. Lol

    • I found the straps stay on better if you hook them toward you than away; they kept popping off for me when I was trying mine on. Very frustrating!

    • I actually tried to do that tonight, but I could not get the hooks to go in that way and I was running late. Fortunately, it was a laid back night!

    • :O I can't imagine how the straps work their way off! I haven't had any issues so far, I've been wearing around the house so I've played with my kids, but nothing really vigorous like dancing.

    65GG

    Didn't fit

    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.

      Welcome to the current trend with Ewa bras: massive inconsistency.

      Sorry this one was so terrible, but I feel your pain, as do many of the others here on BtB lately. You are not alone in your frustration, believe me. 💕

    • 1

      MamaPagan thank you 💕! I am just super confused by all that went wrong here — what should’ve been better was actually quite a bit worse!

    • 1

      Rest assured, the issue is not you for sure.

      Hopefully you can list the bra to recoup some of the money spent and it will fit someone else. Having the measurements should help in finding a match. Too bad we can't get those when we order them from Ewa.

    • Which is how we come to the limit of the actual sizing methods, a number and letters.

      So many parameters are just left over to experience, appreciation and plain luck.

      Another topic deverted to the proportion of good e-commerce fits. I recall a 1 out of 20 success rate.

      Scary, that would be just 5%.

      3D, scanners alone don't help since they only image without the touch.

      A robotic bra measurement station ? Not so silly, robots, and I know a thing or three on the topic, are also used for some very delicate/precise applications.

      And I have of them at-hand. Those inspired, let me know ;)

    • femineaaeterna wow I didn’t even know 3d scanners exist. But even so if they could measure the breast volume and compare it to the cup volume i think it’ll b very useful already

    • LOL, N14iN5 nice one about the 3D scanners, for instance with one of them Kinetics and Windows 10 it's already possible 3D scan for a few bucks at home. Which could be awesome, imagine, you upload the body model for them to e-fit. But. Estimating the mass is quite a challenge.

      I mean breast tissues are very different in not only density but firmness...

      Which is why I taught of a robot with tactile perception. Hey, not an easy deal ;)

    • femineaaeterna Off topic but. Please check out my fit request if you’re free. You’re a wonderful bra expert ahahha

    • N14iN5 , lol, gotta love your sense of humor ;)

      MamaPagan do you know if Ewa does returns at all? Or if she does if that would even be worth it (since I’d still be out shipping costs)? This bra was in her standard sizes, not a custom.

    70HH

    Didn't fit

    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.

      Just so you know, when I started on my bra journey, I thought i found as good as it gets. Then i tried a few fails, then I found another that seemed ok enough to keep (it was really cheap on amazon), and then i found some that were perfect, and then I gained weight, and then I found some more that were pretty good . . . dont give up. Its the best you have so far, but I bet you'll find better still.

    • 1

      :-) Same with me. My actual "the best" is not the one I thought that could be the best six month ago. Newest improvement: I got a Cleo Inca bra with padded straps, which are so soft, they don't cut in at all!
      (First bra- improvement: A bra that made it possible to bend my upper back and stretching my arms in ANY direction without getting my boobs squished painfully.)

      In general EM bands tend to run tighter than a lot of UK brands, but I also found the band on this bra to be weirdly stretchy

    • 1

      I've read that a lot about EM bras running tighter the U.K. brands. This has never been the case for me. I take 28 in Cleo, Freya, CK, Comexim and EM. I did find this bra a bit too stretchy in the 60 band, though.
