Such a soft and lovely bra! Inside of cup is lined with a warm eggshell type beige. The bra is such an unusual color and the embroidery is so lovely! The ribbon detail is very pretty on this one, in the delicate pink.
The 70 band on this bra is perfect. I am thinking I should go back to 70 bands in Ewa, since I've had a lot more too-big 75s than I have too-small 70s, at this point. The cups, tho, verge on being too small. I have 2 Ss in 75JJ (sister size to this), and my Panterra fits on smaller days but the Magique fits on bigger days. I was honestly hoping for another 'bigger days' bra, as I seem to keep gaining no matter what - and some reveiwers said that this bra ran tall on them, making it effectively larger - but not this one, for me. Looks like another smaller-days S.
Again, only tried it on once, about a week ago, and will probably update after more wearing
Oooooh - what a beauty! Sometimes I feel that EM is just recycling the same bra with different fabric, but Glamour changes it up a bit with lace and ribbon. The color is hard to pin down - its not brown or gray or mauve or taupe, but a soft and classy un-color; all of the above. The shiny stretch base fabric is covered with a layer of sheer net lace up to the top cup seam, where it is met with a zig-zag stitch-attached narrow satin pink ribbon, and a band of complimentary patterned geometric lace across the top of the cup is anchored by that same ...ribbon at the seam. The shiny un-color base is visible for the very top 1/2 inch. I should note that the net on the bottom part has an 'exploding flower' design and the tips are not attached, so they pop up, adding an interesting dimensional almost 'sparkle' effect. Similarly, the band of lace along the top section is not attached and it will fold down under a top if not adjusted to lie flat when dressing. The pink ribbon plunges at the gore for a nice effect, and is repeated up the first 6" of the straps. A mini-bow complements it all at the gore. Its all very classy and retro and suits the name! Size-wise, this bra is cut small in this size range. Compared to my S Kicia and other perfect fit 75F's, it is about a half-cup too small without the cookies and my larger boob bulges out. It fits similarly to my S Szykus. Manageable with reverse S&S: hello Marilyn! I'm a 32FF UK, so a 70FF/75F normally. The wires are very narrow. The band is also short for a 75, measuring only 80cm (31.5") fully stretched - and this is not a new bra, so it has loosened some. The ribbon is attached firmly and could create some in-cup quad for those who are more FOT. Glamour is, like most EM top of the line bras, exceptionally soft and comfortable to wear with zero adjustments for me all day. If she comes around used in a size up, I'm all over it because I want this look in my bradrobe forever! Read more 266 more words
I found someone on one of the Facebook swap groups selling a ton of EM and Comexim bras in my size (many new with tags), and I couldn't resist! My first package was mostly Ewa's S cut bras, but I will hopefully be getting some SM and BM styles from her as soon as my bank account recovers, ha. Maybe some Comexims too. We'll see.
Glamour was one of those bras that I had often looked at and thought how pretty it looked, but I just wasn't sure I NEEDED it like I need a good beige bra, t shirt bra, black bra, etc. This was a bit of ...an impulse buy for me. I'm not sure I ever would've had the nerve to buy it full price, but I'm so glad I bought it because it is BEAUTIFUL in person.
My general shape is: short roots, even fullness (but functionally FOB in some styles due to shortness), narrow, soft, very center full with no separation at all.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this cut, but I really like it! My one tiny quibble is I think the cups are just a smidge too tall for me, maybe 1/4" or so, but it's not a huge deal. I got this bra in my usual 75GG and the fit is pretty good; I do need to fasten it on the 2nd or 3rd set of hooks (out of 4) to get the proper support. I tried it at first on the loosest hooks, but got a small amount of gapping; changing to tighter hooks solves that problem for me. I got four S-cut bras in this package, and the Glamour seems to have slightly taller cups or some other very minor difference I can't pinpoint. Normally in Ewa Michalak bras that come with the asymmetry pads I only need to wear one on my smaller side, but I like the fit of this particular bra better with both pads. My other S bras and my PL bra are fine with just one pad. Overall, I did have some reservations and considered listing this one because it was still NWT when I got it, but now that I've been wearing it for several hours my breasts have settled into the cups and it looks perfect, no gaps at all. Holy moly, the uplift here is unreal! I feel like I've had a boob job when I look in the mirror. I guess I see why this is a popular style!
I think my boobs are slightly more center full than this cut really anticipated; I actually get a little quadding near the gore (which is a soft tack), but because it's pretty much buried down in my cleavage it's not noticeable under clothes and it doesn't bother me comfort-wise. The impression I get looking down at my boobs is that this bra is made for boobs a bit more separated than mine are... it's like you can see the fullest part of my breast doesn't quite line up with the fullest part of the cup as you look down, if that makes sense. It still puts everything front and center though, which I appreciate - my general body shape looks much thinner when things are all out front rather than flattened/minimized. The straps are a bit wide-set for me and cut into me a little where they join the cup, but that's pretty standard for me and not unique to this bra.
As far as the materials/construction, it's even prettier in person than I realized. The satin edge of the cup is so soft, I just want to stroke it all day (which will probably attract some unwanted attention at work). Everything feels expensive and luxurious... except the weird pink pompoms at the gore. I appreciate they're "different," but I don't quite feel like they match the rest of the bra. Perhaps it was meant to evoke the marabou trim on glamorous Old Hollywood actresses' dressing gowns? That's my best guess, although it reminds me more of kindergarten art projects. The lace on the cup is a nice art deco starburst-type design, and I love the way the pink ribbon makes a peekaboo shape at the gore. The pink ribbon is also on the front of the straps, which is a nice touch. I didn't realize the lace above the pink ribbon on the cup isn't held down in any way, and it does occasionally fold over itself under my shirt and make a lump.
Overall, I probably won't wear this one much just because the lace does show under thin shirts, but it's definitely on the shortlist for "most beautiful undergarments I own." When I talk about beautiful Polish lingerie to convert my friends, this is probably one of the bras I'll show them. Read more 693 more words
This may be my best fit yet. It feels so good to have a snug band. I think 55G will be my go-to size in Ewa Michalak. Because it has 4 rows of hooks and fits on the loosest ones, I think this bra will last me a really long time. I feel really well-supported, the bra is gorgeous, and it gives a great shape (rounded with a subtle point). Straps are comfy, a bit stretchy, and adjustable half-way. No quad boob or gaping when I remove the cookie on my larger side and leave it in on my smaller side. Cups are still slightly wide for me. I'm dying to try a CH- I think it will be perfect.
Oh ewa... why do you attatch the straps that far? I received this yester day and it took a day for altering the straps and gore by myself. I have not had many S s but this has so far the widest strap set and widest gore imo. The gore is not that wide actually but feel wide because of the pink ribbon trim on it.
Positive things are.. it is much beautiful in person and has the most rounded shape among all the EMs I've tried. Almost Deco shape?! And it's soooo comfortable(of course after altering) thanks to the soft material.
This is a quick review after one day wearing. I will fill up more later. Read more 73 more words
So this is my first time with an S cut from EM; I'd read it was a good idea to go up one cup size to get the depth needed, but I don't think I needed to. I experience a small amount of gap at the top of the cups without the corrective cookie pads. The cookie pads completely correct it in my larger breast, the smaller one still has it. The area of the cups near the gore is fine, sits flush as expected; the gap starts about 3" from the straps, similar to the Freya @Deco.
The wire width is perfect tho', so maybe the S cut ...won't ever give me a perfect fit, which is ok. This one is pretty damn close, and with the CHP and BM cuts giving me a perfect fit I'm not really complaining.
As for the look/feel, it's so nice to have a neutral bra that's not plain or one color. (Similarly, why I love the Panache Envy.) This one certainly does look glamorous; it has a wonderful vintage asthetic, with wee pompons on the lace bow at the center. I feel like this bra was designed with the classic 1940s movie star in a fancy robe/bedroom accoutrements look in mind.
This is only with a few minutes wearing/testing it out, so I'll be certain to update my review with longer wear if an issue presents itself.
As a note the matching panties run slightly small/tight, probably due to the lace construction. They too have the adorable pompons. Read more 146 more words
This is my new favorite bra! It is so unbelievably comfortable and the lift it gives is amazing! This is strangely my best fitting S cut (I also have the Szykus and the Bezus). The cups on the Glamour feel slightly taller and deeper than the Szykus and the Bezus which works for my body perfectly. I've recently ordered 4 other S cuts and am hoping that they fit more like this one! The color of this bra is a lavender-ish grey and it is SO pretty. This bra is sturdy and well made … and very unique looking! LOVE this bra!
I think that the S cut might be my best fit (even the Sykus and Bezus which feel a bit smaller work better for my body than any other bra I've purchased). I used to buy Comexim only, but now I think I will stock up on some more EM bras!
So gorgeous in person. Slightly more open on top than my Colette, which makes the gapping on my smaller breast slightly more noticeable but still not problematic thanks to the cookies. The fabric is super soft and the band stretches comfortably.
Not sure if this is the correct place for this, but it's worth noting that the briefs that match fit kinda strangely. The waistband has relatively little stretch but sits higher than the widest part of my hips. Once they're on they're fine, but definitely don't size down.
I decided very quickly to order this bra because I was seduced by the delicate design, new for this brand. Then I kind of regretted, because I thought it was dull but I it was too late to cancel the order and it’s always useful to have an S bra in the drawer. Useless to say that I’m pleasantly surprised! First off, it’s important to note that the quality is really exceptional for an EM bra and I’ve really had a lot of them since the beginning of the brand (lately I was wearing my HP Czarny so the progress is all the more remarkable to me). The material used in ...the band and the cups is a great quality thick satin that I haven’t even seen in any Masquerade bra. The cups are covered with a shiny lace which I’m not really fan of but it’s rather consistent if terms of design. The straps are also shiny, covered with the same pale pink ribbon that the cups. The little pompoms on the gore are survivors of Finezja and Bambino. The band is TTS, perfect on the first hook (out of 4). The straps are functionally fully adjustable even if there’s a ribbon on the front part. They are shorter (as in the S Opium from the same order) than those in Pralinka and Letnia noc, which is fine for me, the sliders don't have to stay on my shoulders where I can feel them. The cups seem to run higher under my armpits than my other Ss, but when I put two bras together, they’re identical. As they are a tiny bit deeper than my other bras in this cut, it could explain this feeling. The cup fit is consistent though. As I’m very happy with the quality, I’m considering buying the matching bottom at the next order.
This bra fits me beautifully and gives me a great shape. As with other S cuts of EM bras, the gore is slightly too short, which allows my soft, center-full tissue to pool in the middle a bit. The bra itself is gorgeous and girly (but not too much). I am so happy I bought this bra!
