    I think it's safe to say, I've found my holy grail of bras! I've found my brand! I've found my style! I've found...the one! The S styled bras fit dead on for me! So full of win!

    This bra is a fabulous nude bra and I plan to purchase another just like it. It lifts and keeps my bust front and center while giving fantastic cleavage. The fabric overlay on the cup is delicate (much like pantyhose) and can easily snag on rough fabric, so beware. The straps are smooth and fully adjustable. The cup encases my breasts without any irritation near the armpit area where the strap meets ... the cup. The wires are nice and narrow. I found this band smaller than my other 65 band sized bras from EM. This is not an issue for me since most my EM's in 65 start off on the tightest hooks (I hate special ordering). There are three columns and two rows of bra hooks on the backband. The band is not too stretchy or too firm, and feels oh so heavenly. There's a cute satin bow with a pearl accent on the center gore. All pictures were taken without the cookies.

      Looks fab! I ordered 2 of them myself and cannot wait until they get here. So glad you had great success! :)

      (Evadne, check out that color! Woo hoo!)

    • Ok, so I just have to ask . . . you dont fall out the center of it at all? I wouldnt be able to stay in that at all. I guess you probably have firmer boobs than I do?

      I don't want to be a party pooper, and I would never tell someone not to wear any bra they loved if it makes them happy, but I think technically you need the next cup size. This is definitely intended as a low cut style but not THAT low cut. With very firm boobs (young/dense tissue, or augmented folks) you often don't quad or spill in the obvious way the way softer-tissued ladies do, but you still need support, and a too-small cup that does not contain as much of the breast as the designer intended will not provide that support.

      dbmamaz The gore on the S bra in her size is quite lower than in our size range. You can't really compare how hers fits to one in your size.

      Can you pretty please post the bra's measurements? Thanks!

    • Yes, you can get excellent containment even with a superlow gore--however the cups do have to cup enough of the boob volume to keep the girls stable.

      A true half (demi) cup achieves this by coming up a liiiittle bit higher in the middle, but being extremely low cut all along the top. Plunges can be extremely low in the middle but achieve good containment by going up a little higher along the outer quadrant.

      wendybien The OP never mentioned her boobs not feeling stable or supported. If she's happy with the fit, that's all that's important. Her review was very happy and optimistic about this bra.

    • 2

      BumbleBean People very, very frequently post happy and optimistic reviews only to be disappointed later on because they took off the tags, but later realized that the fit wasn't good after all. I regularly go through the ordeal of ordering bras from overseas as well and if I posted pics of something that had a potential fit issue I didn't realize, I would most certainly appreciate other users politely pointing that out!

      I don't poke round looking for reviews to respond to, but this was posted to the community as an adventure, so I assumed that OP would consider it useful info to take on board as she sees fit. She is clearly an adult who can make her own choices and decide for herself if in fact she wants to keep a bra or whether she wants to try a larger cup.

      I am not criticizing her or her choices or anything personal, just responding to a bra adventure in a manner that is intended to be helpful. This is, after all, a bra fitting site, not a purely social forum where the only appropriate response to "I got this thing to wear and I'm excited" is "you look lovely, yay!"

    • Do you feel like this one runs any smaller than your other EMs that are the same size? I've ordered this in my usual 70FF and am worried it might run a little small.

    • I just got this in my normal EM size of a 65f and it's too small for me...very minimal coverage. Can you please add measurements since this would be my preferred size in the bra? Thanks :)

    • My EM BM perla I thought was a great fit when I got it, but I do fall out of it. And the gore is only a half inch shorter than my floris? Is that right?

      But its comfortable, so I still wear it sometimes. But i've learned I cant actually wear it under low-cut tops, because then when I'm falling out the bra, I'm also falling out of the shirt . . and i'm way too old for that! But i'm very, very soft.

    • I think it is reasonable to keep your EM perla, dbmamaz .It's definitely possible to wear something that fits less securely than the designer intended--most people can make it work, wearing it for short periods of time or on occasions they won't be doing anything more active than sitting around. But obviously that does make the bra less versatile and you're limited in how much wear you can get out of it. I had a couple lower balconnets that fit like that (sort of fit, but lacked stability and coverage) when I first got them and I was definitely bummed that I could not wear them all day with a low cut shirt or for an evening event where I'd have to move around normally, carry my 2 year old and so on. If I had a semi-active day my boobs just climbed out and then I had quadding bad enough that you could see it through my clothes. Now that my boobs have shrunk those bras actually are my best fit but it's certainly true that if I'd stayed the same size, I just wouldn't have gotten as much use out of them.

      dbmamaz I actually don't fall out of the middle at all. I feel contained without having any overflow.

      wendybien I think the lighting sometimes makes them look way rounder than in person. In this bra I actually have a ever so slight space along the edge of the cup. I have an EM Toffic plunge bra that is in a 65G and is too big in the cup for me. I think if I size up I'll have an even larger gap and the armpit area would be uncomfortable. And I totally agree with you on needing support. Us augmented ladies need the support as well since nothing's worse than a bottomed out implant.

      CurvyCandy in comparison to my other EMs, mainly my SM Wróżka, the cup covers the same, but the band fits smaller. I find with EM bras it's a crap-shoot as to how tight of a band you get.

      *currently working on getting the measurements up along with a few other pics. For reference my nipple sits just under where the three part cup converges in the center.

    • I was wondering if you are wearing the assymetry pads that came with the bra in the pictures? I find that with the pads in I am getting quite a bit of quad boob. I am contemplating getting the 65ff.

    • disneymom I actually didn't have any in when I took these pictures.

      Thanks for replying! It helps so much and gives me hope that a 65ff would be a better choice for me :)

    • Happy2BraShop, can you comment at all about the seams on this bra? Are they visible under t-shirts? I have several of the Ewa Michalak S Porcelanka (369) bras, which I love, but the seams show up too much for my liking under solid light colored t-shirts. I'm curious if the S Orzechowa Pralinka is any better...

    • pinkwonder They do show up ever so slightly. The thinner the shirt, the more it shows. I usually wear a thin flesh colored cotton tank (cheap ones from forever21 or similar clothing store) under to better disguise the seams. But this one isn't quite as bad as some of the other pieced cup bras I've had.

    This is a great, supportive t-shirt bra. The material is comfortable, forgivng of asymmetry, and a suitable "nude" for pale skin. The cup height works well for my very short roots. My first Ewa Michalak was a 65FF S Porcelanka: it was too small everywhere. This 65FF S Pralinka is also too small for me, but allows more immediate projection than the 65FF S Porcelanka. Within three minutes, however, the wires were pressing uncomfortably on my ribs. However, I'm concerned a 65G will fit better in every dimension except cup height. This is a recurring problem for me: when my short, projected breasts have enough width and immediate projection at the wire, the cup height is too tall.

    This was my first bra from Ewa Michalak. I was unsure of my sizing and chose S Orzechowa Pralinka because the band was said to be really tight so maybe I wouldn’t need a custom order. Also, I didn’t really have a nude bra. I sized up from my average UK size 28FF as the Polish bras are usually described to run smaller.
    Esthetically, S Orzechowa Pralinka is very pretty for a beige bra. It has a beautiful pearl center gore detail and a lovely soft, subtly shiny fabric that works very well for my skin tone. Unfortunately, although the band may be tight for a 65, it’s still ... way too big for my 26" underbust. I also get some gaping in at the top of the cups, especially near the center gore (although I have center fullness). Wearing the pads doesn’t really help the issue. I thought that I could make this bra work by tightening the straps and wearing it on the tighter hooks. It would still function pretty well as a T-shirt bra, but after seeing how much better the S fits me in 60FF, I think I’ll let this one go. As a lover of colors, lace and florals, I don’t feel that I need a nude bra that almost fits.

    This is my second Pralinka in the same size and I'm two for two. See my original review here-> http://bra.pe/XOzI/

    This one fits like the first one with the exception that it's a teeny-weeny bit bigger in the band. I also feel the cup height in the center of the cup comes up ever so slightly higher than my original bra. But it fits amazing well and is comfortable out of the box. This color nude works very well for me. All pics taken for this bra were taken without the cookies. I do have to say with all the inconsistency in size within EM, I'm pleasantly shocked that this was pretty much an identical bra to my first one.
