I have officially fallen in love <3 Nostalgia is to die for. The dusky pink and purple florals, the elegant black lace, the baby pink bow in the centre... Appearance wise this bra exceeds all expectations. It is truly beautiful. As with most Ewa Michalak bras the quality and comfort is outstanding, and if this was a 60HH it would be perfection. Even though the gore tacks, it's a tad too big for me. But it's so beautiful I don't care and am going to wear it anyway! Thankfully it has 4 rows of hooks & eyes so I can tighten it right up. I still get a bit of riding up in the band during the day, I really really do need a 60 band. But again, it's gorgeous, so I'm happy to live with it.
Such a beautiful bra! I haven't worn foam lined cups in ages so it definitely takes some getting used to again!
The band is firm, but I've read EM bras usually have firm bands so that's to be expected I guess. It gives a really nice, round shape. I've tried many tops over it and the decorative lace trim on the top of the cups didn't show through any of them, so that's a plus! The straps are fully adjustable and it has narrow wires that actually encircle my breast roots.
Some of the cons I came across when first wearing it for an entire day (without an extender) were: The ...band would start out firm but fine. But as the day progressed it would get almost painfully tight at the bottom, digging in at the sides in particular. Like all my other bras, the bottom of the gore/band digs into my stomach, more-so if I've had a large meal. I'm pretty much used to this though since I have a stomach shelf. The pattern and/or seams on the bra may show through on tighter, very thin material tops. The spaghetti strap top I wear in my pictures shows this. I also wore a regular plain shirt over this bra and didn't really see seams, so it looks like it doesn't show under normal and thicker materials. I actually don't mind bra seams showing at all, but I know some women might not like it. I quadboob just ever so slightly on my larger breast, but it isn't visible under clothing.
Even though some of those cons look like deal-breakers, I decided to give this bra another try with an extender and it pretty much cleared up all the cons I was having save for the gore/band digging into my stomach. But all my bras do this to me so it isn't so much a problem with the bra as it is with my anatomy.
Overall, I really like this bra and hopefully, with time, I can get the band to stretch some more so I won't have to use an extender! Read more 237 more words
This bra is a pleasant surprise! I purchased it on a whim with my other brightly colored Spring bras, as I don't have many black bras on hand. It's much more gorgeous in person, as is the case with all EM bras. The large flowers really pop against the matte black, and the details make it all the more beautiful. I especially love the black lace piping vertically lined on the wing.
Fit wise, this is perfect. The band is quite stretchy but comfortable and firm (single layer of black mesh makes it more stretchy than the typical dual layer in EM bras), the cups encase all my tissue well, and the wires are perfectly narrow. My only complaint is that I wish the straps were thicker, but I generally always wish that. The material it's made of is super soft and silky -- an unexpected and welcome surprise. All in all, I'm super glad to have this in my collection now.
Such a beauty! I love the print of this bra so much. So I ordered a 75hh in this bra and they sent me a 75h. I tried it on anyways and it seemed way too small. I tried it on a couple days later and it fit pretty good, so apparently I was just having a big boob day when I got it. The band on this one is very stretchy, if it wasn't such a long wait I would return it for a 70hh as I have to wear it on the tightest hook from the start. The band isn't ...as high quality material as others (ie the kleksik band), it's one that has to be stretched firm to support. The bra is so gorg this is a sacrifice I'm willing to make. The gore does not lay flat on me but overall I'd still say it's a pretty good fit. I bought the matching thong in a 44 but these fit a bit loose, I would of been better of with a 42. I normally wear size 10 - 12 US for reference. Read more 88 more words
Lately I feel like the 65GGs have been getting a bit smaller in the cups in the S style. I have older ones that I fit into just fine still, but for my newer ones (The Nostalgia, the Diamant, and the Kleksik), they definitely don't contain my boobs as well. I have been on the cusp of GG/H for ages now, but all my older bras still fit the same as they did when I got them (since I was on the cusp then too) so it's not a matter of boob growth.
I absolutely LOVE this bra. I love everything about it! It's beautiful, comfortable, and amazing. Personally, I fell in love with it the second I saw the preview for it, and I was so excited for it. I love it just as much as I thought I would. It's a floral, which I am rarely a fan of (having done PLENTY of florals in the 90s), but this one is so pretty.
All in all, I recommend this bra very much. It's great.
This is the most gorgeous floral printed bra with beautiful details. The fit and quality are perfect as usual from Ewa Michalak, I wish I could still get it in a larger cup size though...it's now discontinued
I bought this for my mom, but I overestimated her cup size. So it's to big in the cup. She also felt that the cup and wing got to tall. But the width of the wire was just the width she needs. We are returning this bra.
