I got this in Ewa's Black Friday sale. I had read a few reviews that said it ran small, perhaps just short in the cups, but since my main complaint about some of my S bras is that they're too tall I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm also a sucker for beige bras, so I was hoping it would work as a nude for me.
MY SHAPE: Narrow, projected, short roots, close set, center full, even fullness (technically FOT but my short roots make me appear even most of the time)
FIT: This fits really well! It does indeed seem to run shorter in the cups than my ... other S bras, which means IT IS AWESOME FOR ME. Usually, even in my S bras that I deem to have a good fit, I feel like my boobs are just barely tall enough to fill them to the cup edge. This bra fit me like a second skin. There is a smooth line from breast tissue to the cup. It's like the difference between regular pants and petite pants; this is a petite bra. The band is TTS, maybe just a bit more snug than some of my other S bras but quite comfortable and supportive. The straps are fine, not too wide set. After looking at the photos, I can see it's not quite as projected as my other S bras at the wire - it wants to either wrinkle or slide out of my IMF - but it's not a deal breaker for me.
APPEARANCE/QUALITY: This gives that great S shape under clothes, very uplifted, centered, and out there. Wearing S bras - including this one - make me feel like I've had a boob job. The materials are great and understated; this is a basic beige bra, no floral lace or diamonds on this bra, but everything feels very high quality. There is a large bow with a pearl charm at the gore, but that seems to be the only decoration. The exact shade of beige is a great match for my skin. I was worried it might be too dark, after seeing some pictures, but I'm very pale (Irish descent) and I think it works for me. It would also work well for people that are too tan for Ewa's other beige offerings. I've noticed many of her beige bras are actually kind of a golden vanilla color, this is closer to the color that UK brands typically use for their beige. It reminds me a lot of the standard pantyhose that use to come in a plastic egg, they were this color too! It's slightly darker than many of the beige panties I own, but not by much. The seams are all sewn on the inside so they're very flat and don't show through clothing.
OVERALL: This bra fills a pretty big gap in my bra wardrobe - regular beige t-shirt bra! I have the 75J - Comexim » Elena Plunge Bra (315) that's been converted to a nursing bra for weekends with my kids, and this one for work.
