      That tight band worries me! I just ordered 2 32s - I wear 32 in most bras, and their website said 32, but I'm worried my 'tight' measurement was TOO tight

    • 1

      It will depend on the bra I think. I have a 32 ewa that is stretchy and have owned others that tried to suffocate me.

    The band of this bra is extremely stretchy, so even if it says 58cm ling flat, it rides up my 58-59 cm ribcage and doesn't hug at all. I had to use the rixie clip as far as it went to get an ok fit. I think the straps are wrong and really meant for the MP model, and have emailed Ewa about it, but haven't recieved an answer yet, but the stock photo definately show thicker straps. They are also extremely elastic, i had to adjust them all the way and could still fit both my clenched fists underneath...
    Cups a tiny bit small, but I think going up would be too big.
    Lovely colour otherwise, the pictures are quite near the acctual colour.

    I'll take better pictures for the blog later on.

    65GG

    Didn't fit

    This bra was a slight disappointment. After discovering my Holy Grail S Pieprzyk 65GG, I thought -- or at least hoped -- I could order S's and extenders and get the same great fit. Not so much.

    By Bratabase measurements, these bras ARE identical except for the Kleksik's less-stretchy band. But there's a dimension we don't measure here that makes all the difference: cup height. The bottom center seam on this bra is an entire centimeter taller than on the Pieprzyk in the same size.

    Do the math: 1 cm per cup X 2 cups = 2 cm = 0.80 inch, or almost an entire cup size. That is NOT ... an acceptable margin of error. And in fact, these cup dimensions -- including that bottom seam -- are almost identical to my Comexim Irish Coffee in 70J, one cup volume larger.

    So which one is true to size and which one mismade? I don't know, because we don't take that dimension here. So in theory I have to keep playing Ewa Roulette. (In practice, I discovered the 70FF CHP, and am even more in love, so eff this cut.)

    I also realized several wears in that altering the straps may compensate for the center gaping the too-tall cup is causing. The straps are attached at more or less a 45 degree angle from the corner of the cup. On a hunch, I pinned them so they emerge vertically from the top edge. As you can see from the two angle shots, almost all the gape disappears. I have a similar but smaller gape issue with my 75FF SM bras and was going to have my tailor take those in at the gore, but now I'm thinking they can all be fixed this way....stay tuned.

    Now, as for the bra itself, the colors are gorgeous. I should have realized, of course, that on me the full-blown rose at the gore would be a pressed flower, but it's still pretty despite being squished. The band runs tighter than average; I had trouble closing this even with an extender for the first several wears. (I've lost 10 lbs., though, so hard to say how much of the change is me vs. the bra.) The real drawback is the texture; the super-smooth jersey actually makes the seams MORE visible under clothing, rather than less, since there's no other texture to distract the eye. This is, for me at least, a sweater-only bra.

    • Weird. All but the pinned straps one were approved a few hours ago. They should be visible.

    • 1

      I agree, we should definitely account for height! I have a really short torso, so tall cups can ruin an entire bra unfortunately. I'm sorry you had this problem. : (

    • I refreshed twice and cnat see them. are you sure you included them on the fit request? there are so many little spots to click on . . .

      Her pictures are associated with the bra dbmamaz , just not with her profile. At least I assume they are her photos (?)

      I'd be the last to contradict you about the intrinsic value of cup height measurements as I have just edged into a size range where I bump into the opposite issue with almost all UK bras (cups not tall enough). However, I believe Jj has mentioned that every time a new measurement is added to the table, it leads to a drop in the number of users willing to enter any measurements at all since the longer the table and the more data is requested, the more off-putting it is to them. I find that a compelling consideration.

    • 1

      It's a good point that more data is more burdensome. It's just an interesting quirk of these two bras -- same maker, same size, same season, same cut, DRASTICALLY different fit because of this one feature. At least, that's the only difference I can find, and I've been poking at this bra for two months.

      As for the photos, they're definitely visible from multiple different perspectives, but it's hard for me to tell when I'm logged in what the issue is. Sorry! It all looks right to me.

    • thanks I see - associate w the bra but not the review

    • ack - now i see it on the review too. So odd. I looked several times. sorry to leave all this random noise!

    • No problem. Possible it was me, with the multi-stage photo upload. Who knows! Hope it's helpful.

  4. I will come back and add more, but quickly...this bra's band is very small. I did a measurement of around 25.5 inches. The blue knit fabric is gorgeous. I don't find that the straps are thin or stretchy.

    Updated on Jan 27, 2015 Flag this


    • Is this one a lined or unlined fabric? The S is a cut I haven't gotten my hands on yet to try from Ewa, but I have heard it is good for projection. I have a BM Aqua I got here now that is super comfy but the fabric is stretchy enough that it doesn't give my favorite shilouette or uplift. The vertical seams on the HMs I got here give me a strangely square shape from the sides (though again, very comfy and wow super sexy from the front view)...looking forward to your review :). So nice to read reviews from someone near my size! Thanks for doing them.

    • The S cut is basically the PL with a higher gore :) It's padded and comes with the removable pads. I really want to try a HM cut! Interesting that the side shape isn't as good as the front

    I actually adore this bra. Based on other reports, I really lucked out with it because apparently most people have trouble with a few things that I didn't have trouble with (strap width too small and band too small, both are perfect for me) at all. From the sound of it, I got one that was actually made correctly while many got a bra that was not right.

    I love the deep blue color. It is so pretty. The bra is really comfortable, and I like the cute little peach rose thing in the middle. I didn't think I would and I fully anticipated cutting it off, but I think it stands out and looks nice.

    The only reason I can't recommend this bra to other people is because there are so many women reporting fit issues with it that who knows what you might end up with. It's also out of stock too now so there's that.

  6. Wow!
    This is a dream bra. I would like this in every possible colorway, please!
    I understand reviews of the fit have been mixed, but it's perfect for me. I would say it runs true to size.
    Simply stunning color and lovely smooth finish; very comfy. Wish Santa would bring me matching bottoms.

    • I love my kieslik too..except the tiny band. Well, the band is a pain to get on but it doesn't feel too firm when it's on.

    • 1

      Yay! I'm so glad this fits well on you! Even with an extender, the fit was just off on me. Wear it all the time, because the color and padding are both a dream and it deserves to be basically worn ragged. :D

    65FF

    Hasn't set fit

    The Kleksik is more navy and less purple than in the Ewa Michalak product photos. The satiny cups are silky smooth. The cotton lining is black. The straps are unusually delicate looking, less than half an inch in width. I was meant to get the MP version of the Kleksik in 65FF. The S 65FF is, not surprisingly, too big in the cups. Since the S cut is meant for soft tissue prone to falling out of plunges and low coverage bras, the higher coverage cups and wings of this S Kleksik make sense. I have the opposite problem, however, which is why I stick to super low gores and as low coverage cups as I can get. In most cases, that means Ewa Michalak's 3D and the more recent MP cuts.

    • Did you order MP and receive the S?
      I've been comparing the MP I ordered to the MP in the sister size and measurements seem far off.
      Wonder if I received an S.

    • Also, I know this is an old review, but I'm trying to figure out what's up with such different measurements. Lol

    • Yes, I ordered the MP Kleksik but received the S. The same thing happened a few months earlier, when I ordered the MP Truskawki Z Malinami. Ewa Michalak's company ignored all my attempts to correct the Truskawki situation. To this day they haven't responded to any of my emails on the subject. I swapped the S for the same size MP with Madinic22, who had received the MP instead of the S she ordered.

      However, Ewa Michalak did correct the MP Kleksik situation. In the MP Kleksik order, I had ordered two other bras. The 3D Paris Paris I ordered was two cup sizes off from what I ordered. When I emailed them about the two out of three bras being wrong, Dominik responded right away. Very shortly thereafter, Ewa Michalak herself emailed me, asking for photos. When I sent photos, including tags and the picture of the S Kleksik beneath the MP Truskawki, she assured me she would send the correct bras as soon as she received my returns and then reimburse me for shipping. She did as she promised, so now I have everything I ordered.

    • Queequeg0925, I can believe your suspicion is correct. It is quite possible you received the S instead of the MP.

    This bra is one that many people said came super pointy. I thought the same, but as in wore and was washed the pointy eased up. It definitely had a higher apex point than all my other EM. In the wrong size, totally ok and I could make it work. In the right size I think it wouldn't have been wearable with my shape.

    After one wear for a couple hours, the outer material of the cup started pilling severely. I tried to change the shirt but the cup was instantly getting little bobbles all over it. I sent the bra back to Ewa with a complaint form, and received a full refund.

    75H

    Didn't fit

    Based on my own experience, and what I've read of others', there is definitely something a bit off with the fit of this bra. The band is very tight, and I can't wear it for longer than a few minutes without an extender. Also, the cups are a bit off, as there is some gaping on my smaller side that is not present with the other 34H S model I have. It feels like the wires are more narrow, which may have something to do with this, as the cup would have more depth and forward projection(?). Just a guess. By far the most annoying aspect of the ... fit of this has to do with the section of material which connects the hooks and eyes to the band. On mine, the ends of the material are extremely scratchy and irritate the hell out of me. I snipped the end a bit, so it's just the soft and plush material of the bra, rather than the scratchy bit rubbing against my skin. This is a complete anomaly, as I've never had this issue with an EM bra before. I'm curious to know if others had the same issue, or if it was just something off with mine. Additionally, I cut off the middle decal rose thing, because it was too odd and distracting for me.

    All of this is a shame, because the color is friggin' gorgeous, and the padding of the bra is the softest I've ever felt. It's almost like memory foam, and feels incredible. I'm definitely curious to read other people's reviews on here to see if other people experience the same issues as I and others have.

    • I didn't have the problem with the itchy but, and can't compare fitwise to any other EM bra since this was my first one. However, there was a seriositet problem with my straps, they were super stretchy and only 1cm thick (the bra was 65F and even if the support is supposed to come from the band, it's kind of nice when the straps do their part of the job as well) and got an email from EM that these straps were OK.
      Also I found the band to be way too stretchy to support enough.

    • They must have used a different kind of strap for yours, because the ones on mine are not that extraordinarily stretchy. They are thinner than I would like (appox. 2 cm), but I wouldn't say they're problematic.

      There definitely seems to be something off with this bra, just in general.
