    Didn't fit

    The Magique is here! The bra I've been coveting for months since it was first teased! And .. . uh . . might not be my favorite. Isnt that always the way it works?

    First off, the band is too big. Significantly bigger than the 4 other Ewa Michalak 75s I own. BUT . . . someone asked a few months ago, when we were examining pictures, if the gore is adjustable - because the gore is laces instead of cloth. Someone said no . . . but they were WRONG!!

    the first time I put the bra on, I was crestfallen at how ... loose it was on the second-to-last set of hooks. But i took it off and cinched up the gore and tied the excess in a slip knot. All the pictures are taken with the gore cinched up, but the measurements are taken after I took out the knot and redistributed the gore's lacings. It looks like only about a half inch difference in stretched length, but at least after that it fit firmly on the 3rd hook.

    Plus I've always wondered how that would change the fit for me . . . well, actually, this bra is looking a tad too big? I have one pad on my smaller side and none on my bigger, but smaller side is still gapping a good deal. I do sometimes wear 2 pads on my smaller side, so thats not too big a deal. But I wonder if cinching the gore opened up the cups more - thats what other ppl said would happen if you sewed a gore like that. It changes the angle, making it more center-full friendly. But maybe too much this time?

    Ok, the look of the bra - I totally fell in love with the look of the lace when I saw it on line. Too bad my camera didnt take very good pictures of it. It is lovely . . . but I have to admit, I dont love the shade of the backing. Its a fairly dark, mocha-ish tan. Not really a great color on my bluish pale skin.

    Comfort? Not washed yet, not really worn yet. the lining fabric feels less soft than other Ss I have - could be because its not washed yet. But i wonder if its a cotton blend instead of cotton? I do think sometimes the linings shrink slightly when I wash them, but if its a blend, it might not.

    So . . yeah, not as glowing a review as I expected lol! Anticipation seems to sometimes sour me! Honestly wondering if I really should send it back for a 70JJ instead.

    • I'm not sure if it was just a fluke, but I actually found my 70JJ to fit a bit small in the cup (but also big in the band like yours) so a 70JJ may be too small for you

      Try it on with some tight clothing and see if the cups gaping is evident, if not maybe you can wing it.

      I wouldn't be surprised this is EM's manufacturing inconsistency.

      I see you marked the bra as having alterations. If it is only the center gore you changed, maybe you could remove the mark, omit the measurement and indicate in the review. I say this because when a bra is marked as having alterations, its measurements don't get averaged, so the general entry has less data. In your case in particular I think the alterations do not really affect fit so this bra would be pretty much "standard" fit.

    • Thanks, JJ, I wasnt aware of that. I'll try to change it.

      kermitdafrog21 did you try cinching up the gore like I did and see if it helps any?

    • No, I haven't tried that yet. I imagine it will help a bit, but I'm not sure it will help enough for it to be big enough in the cup (though I don't want to go through returning it to Poland, so it'll have to do lol). But when I put up pictures later tonight, I'll probably take them with the gore both ways for comparison

    • btw, I gained a bit more - this is now my only really comfy PMS bra. Still way too big in the band, tho - on the tightest hook, except first wear after washing. I still hope to sell it eventually.
