It has been a long time since I've tried one of Ewa's S models. The last one I tried was what I guessed too be about a cup size too big. Despite remembering kind of liking the fit for the most part, I hadn't gotten around to trying another S for some reason. I finally decided to go ahead and try one a cup size down, and it fits quite well. It's a pattern I wasn't in love with initially, but after seeing it in person I actually really like the print, it's very subtle. Full review on my blog.
This is the second EM bra I've tried (the first was an S Colette in a 75HH) and while it is a better fit, it is definitely less comfortable. The bra is a three part cup, with a ribbon sewed onto the top seam. Unfortunately, this ribbon embellishment looks a bit odd under clothes (it creates almost a pointed look). It is a beautiful looking bra though, with a mesh animal print overlay and a light purple flower in the center of the bra. The fit of this bra is amazing! I think that the cup is actually slightly larger than that of the 75HH Colette that I tried ...(either that or I shrunk a little bit, which is also possible. We'll know when I get around to measuring I guess). I was almost quadding out of the Colette but this one perfectly contains me. The wires are narrow enough for me, and it offers great projection and lift (I think that the angle picture I have up doesn't do this bra justice). My one fit complaint would have to be the straps (I know, that's everyones complaint). The straps actually weren't an issue for me in the Colette that I tried, but these straps feel a little different somehow. I think that part of it is the material. The bra has a mesh overlay which is a little itchy on my armpit. I think that these straps might also be a little bit more wide set. Minor issues aside though, I love how this bra looks on me and its definitely a keeper! I'll just throw in a little side note on the bottoms though (which are super comfy): if you're between sizes, definitely get the smaller one! With 43 inch hips, I wish I'd gone for the large (42) rather than the XL (44). Read more 196 more words
First off, go down a band size in this bra, it runs VERY stretchy in the band. I have it fastened on the 3rd of 4 rows, but it probably should be on the tightest. On the second, it wouldnt stay in my IMF at all.
While this is technically a leopard print (despite being called panther) it is very subtle, which works for me as I am not a fan of animal prints. To me, this is just a textured navy bra. I bought it because I wanted to try a bigger S, and it was new and on sale (and i did ...not like the only other S in this batch).
So, the cups definitely fit better than my poor lovely Eden. One pad in my smaller side and none in my bigger side seems pretty good. The top view is, to my eyes, remarkably even - most of my top views you can clearly see how uneven my boobs are, so the pads do a good job.
I am not sure S is the best shape for me. On the one hand, the look under clothing is spectacular - high up and smooth. On the other hand, I just dont like the way it looks without a shirt as much. I feel like I have 'cup-of-boob' - my breasts are so soft, its like they are being held in a cup, and they almost flatten at the top, because I am so soft and there is no support on the top to shape them.
However, I suspect I will wear this a lot (until the band stretches out or I lose weight) because it does give such a solid look under clothing, and of course warm in the winter!
The lining of the bra is black cotton, the straps are nicely thick and stretchy, the pink flower is soft and made of ribbon. The band fabric feels smooth like my BM but slightly thicker, but the elastic along the bottom of the band is narrower than the BMs elastic Read more 245 more words
I love this one! Perfect color for fall and winter. I have never been a fan of animal prints, but this is so subtle, that I had to order it, I love the contrast of the light pinky lavender flower at the gore. I know alot of people said that the band ran firm, but I don't find that to be true for mine.
Another great bra from Ewa Michalak! This bra fits me quite well. It gives my soft tissue the "shape" and support that it needs. The wires are not too wide like so many are. I have slight gaping but it is not visible under clothes. The band seems slightly stretchier than my EM Beżuś (Pearl) bra, as I could hook it on the 2nd hook immediately and very quickly on to the 3rd hook. The fabric is a beautiful rich blue. The straps are slightly too wide in the sense that they cut into the corner of my armpits but the straps do not fall down and do not cause too much discomfort unless I wear it two days in a row. I'd like the gore to be a smidge taller. I am just nit-picking details that ultimately do not affect my appreciation for this bra but I like the Bezus Beżuś just enough better that it is my everyday bra.
I ordered this bra in a 70H to test the fit. I ordered a 70GG in a different S style for comparison. My usual UK size is 32GG and I do feel that in the S styles, I need to stay with the GG cup. Without the pads, the cups are definitely too large for me, as I can slide my whole hand in there. With the pads, it fits better, but since it's still too large, I don't get much upper lift. Plus, I can feel the underwires sliding down my rib cage. The band feels fine, not too large. Appearance-wise, I think the color and pattern ...is beautiful, though the large pink flower at the top of the gore is a little too big for my taste. I thought about trying to get this in my proper size, however, I've been stocking up on bras since I recently increased a cup size, and I've decided that since I already have so many new dark colored bras, that I would probably be better off finding some new beige bras for underneath lighter tops.

Fits like a UK 32H/34GG (true to size). It's another lovely, high quality bra from EM and she really appears to be stepping up her sizing consistency lately. The band has 4 columns, the straps are fully adjustable and the interior of the cups has removable cookies. My only quibble is how wide set the straps are on the S style. Although they don't cut in, they also don't offer the same stellar lift as the CHP.
The leopard print on this bra is very subtle, so much so that I didn't notice it in the stock photos on Ewa's site. It was only after reading a blog review on the bra that I saw the leopard print, but I don't mind that much. The outer fabric on this bra isn't as soft as the Colette, but the fit is a tad better. The cups are still, sadly, too small. Just a smidge, enough that I know when I get a 70H I will probably need the pads to make up some extra room. Still, due to the navy color of this, the band feels super tight which is a plus for me always. This will definitely be reordered in a cupsize up when I get the funds to do so.
I'm so happy with this and the Ewa Michalak S Eden (730) I ordered! These bras are the closest to a perfect fit I've ever experienced. They really hold my boobs out front like a shelf, which is just what I want. Without the pads, the top gapes just a tiny bit, but I'd rather keep them in anyway. I ordered 70s in these because I heard this one ran large, and I knew the Eden ran large from the one I had before. This one feels a bit tight, but it's nowhere near as tight as the S Malibu I had in a 70 band. ...I love the monochromatic leopard but i will probably be (carefully!) removing the big pink frilly thing in the center, I like the color contrast but it doesn't go with the rest of the bra to me. One difference that I noticed between this 70F and the 70FF/75Fs I owned previously is that the straps seem smaller and flimsier. When I first put it on I was afraid the strap would break, but now it doesn't seem like a problem. Read more 81 more words
