I recently got another package from my bra fairy. Although my "normal" Ewa size is 75GG for padded and 75G for unpadded, I got several 75G S bras from her this time (as well as some more 75G BM styles). In theory these S bras should be a cup too small, but since I had issues with certain 75GG S styles being too tall I thought this could be a fun experiment...
MY SHAPE: Narrow, projected, short roots, close set, center full, even fullness (technically FOT but my short roots make me appear even most of the time).
FIT: This fits so well! I was nervous since this one was ...a 75G, but either this bra is an outlier that runs big or I can actually wear both sizes. I did feel like this wasn't as much "that's a lot of bra" as my other S bras, so perhaps I've just been buying a cup size too big all this time? But that still doesn't make a ton of sense because I definitely wear a 75G (and almost a 75GG) in her unpadded styles, and I feel like it's kind of an unwritten rule that Ewa's padded bras run smaller than the unpadded ones... Hm. A mystery. This one definitely fits though! The pictures don't lie, and they were taken after a 9-hour work day without any readjustment. I haven't measured yet, but it'll be interesting to see how it compares to my other bras in 75GG. As always I have one of the asymmetry cookies in my smaller (right) side to even things out. As usual on my squishy ribcage, the bottom elastic dug in a bit by the end of the day, but this will soften with wear.
APPEARANCE/QUALITY: The shape this bra gives is nice and round and projected, just like my other S bras. I love the way the floral design is almost printed on the lace instead of woven in or printed on the solid blue base, it's definitely unique. I also appreciated that there are several small stitches holding the top edge of the lace down - I have had issues with my 75GG - Ewa Michalak » S Syrena (790) because the eyelash lace always wants to fold over, but these little stitches prevent the issue entirely. The best part is the stitches are invisible - I only realized they existed because I tried to fold the lace over! The colors are lovely, very fun, sure to brighten my mood even when I'm the only one who knows what my bra looks like.
OVERALL: Another keeper from Ewa! After my experiences with this most recent package of bras from my bra fairy, I may order my S bras in 75G from now on, especially if others say they run tall/big. Read more 357 more words
I finally got my first Ewa S - and its SO pretty! I love this turquoise color and the bright floral pattern. I dont think my cell phone does it justice. When I showed it to my husband his first response was "well, it sure is colorful."
I have been told that you should go up at least a cup size in the padded EMs compared to the unpadded. My BM 70HH is too small in the cups, and my SM 70J fits in the cups but is too small in the band, so I ordered this in a 75J. I looked at the ...reviews of the Edens from 2 years ago, and saw that the bands ran tight - but this year's Eden does NOT run tight. In the pictures you see me stretching out the band when it is on its loosest setting. I am wearing it on the 2nd row in all other pictures, which is fine - and makes me glad that the bra has 4 rows rather than 3. (or is that columns? I dont know!)
The bra comes with removeable pads. In the pictures you see, i have one pad in my smaller breast and none in my larger side. However, you can see quite clearly in the side view that I have 'bubbling' . . . not quite quadding, I think, but definitely some breast tissue bubbling up above the edge of the bra. However, because of the thickness of the bra I think, you can not see this at all under a shirt. I dont love it, but I think I can live with it.
You can also see from the above shot that my larger breast is not contained in the cups as well as the smaller one. If buy another S, it will probably be a 75JJ or a 70K, to see if that works any better for me.
The bra is very comfortable. I love the wide, stretchy straps - i actually have them adjusted pretty long, which makes me wonder if they would be too short for a taller person?
On one of the side shots you can see my 'shelf' effect - i feel like my breasts are coming straight out from just below my collar bone in an unattractive way. I think this happens with all bras that support me fully, though.
I have to say, my boobs look much bigger to me in this bra. This is why I generally avoid padded bras - even that little bit of padding makes me boobs look even more ridiculously huge to me.
I wont get rid of this bra because I love it, it is close enough to fitting, and they are completely out of material. Did I mention I love it? So pretty! But I do not think I've found my perfect EM S size. Read more 393 more words
Another love. I am happy to have this one in my collection as well. A review was written for this one, comparing it to Kwiaty. Link is below I love the lace overlay, adn the colors play off of each nicely.
My perception of this was a fairly perfect fit for me (close-set, soft tissue, projected, narrow root). In the pictures, I can see a little teensy bit of a quad-boob, but that may be affected by the fact that I'd leaned over in the middle of my photo shoot
This bra is so pretty. I love the blue color with the pink and green floral lace on top of it. It's so vibrant and reminds me of Spring. The only thing is ... is I feel that the cup height is slightly shorter than my other S cut EM bras. And the band feels slightly less comfortable and a little on the tight side. I'm not sure if maybe these things are due to it being a slightly older EM style? Because of these two factors though I rarely reach for it in my drawer. I've even tried it with an extender and it still feels a bit uncomfortable. The gore also stretches and wrinkles when I wear it. And this is the only EM S cut bra that does that on me.
