I was so looking forward to this bra, but because of my weight fluctuations I wanted to test a large cup size to see if that would
help with the quadboob issues I have had in the past. I measured myself and used Ewa's size calculator, the bra I purchased is the size which was recommended using my current measurements.
Fitting: Unfortunately the band is way too large for me, the back strap has quite a lot of stretch. The cups gape a little at the top even with the additional padding, which you can hopefully see in the pictures. I tested it with and without the pads, and ... even tried lacing the centre gore tighter but this didn't help at all and made it sit somewhat strangely on my body. I have very pendulous breasts, with most of the breast tissue at the end of my breasts so this might also contribute to the gaping at the top.
This bra is very beautiful and despite the fitting issue, I can still wear the bra as the gaping isn't super noticeable with certain fabrics.
I won't be returning the bra as Ewa's store goes on holidays soon for a few weeks and I don't want to be without a bra in the meanwhile. I might try a different style bra in the future but hopefully this review is still helpful... I still think that because the wires on Ewa bras tend to be quite narrow these fit me better than most of the bras available from major companies or from stores like figleaves in the UK. I still haven't been able to get a perfect fit with an Ewa bra, but I love the look and comfort of the ones I have purchased even with the minor issues I have experience - I still really like her bras.
