This is my new all-time favorite bra. Everything about it is outstanding. The band fits perfectly, the wires are the perfect width and height, the cup depth is perfect, and get this -- even the straps are in an acceptably comfortable spot. Plus, there's enough uplift to make my saggy, FoB boobs look pretty freakin' amazing. The addition of the pad inserts (which I am wearing in the pictures) just give me a little extra oomph when I want it. The cups still fit great without the pads. Also, I LOVE polka dots! I finally have a bra with polka dots, plus I love red and black together.
I ... don't really have much else to say besides the fact that I'm in love with the S cut! I did not feel this passionate about it when I was a larger size. I used to have 70JJ - Ewa Michalak » S Porcelanka and 75J - Ewa Michalak » S Fiołek , which were both on the verge of being too small for me at the time. I began wearing the PL cut in size 75JJ shortly after, so now I'm 2 band/cup sizes smaller than before. The cup construction is slightly different in the larger cup sizes (70JJ+/sister sizes is where it starts, I suspect.) The cups are made with 4 part in that size range, whereas in this 65JJ - Ewa Michalak » S Pieprzyk (473) the cups are made of only 3 parts. The 4 part construction actually makes the cup shape more round, which I kind of missed in this size. In the larger sizes, I had more fit issues (wires too high under my arms, straps too far apart, cups too far apart.) However, all of these issues were barely to non-existant in my new size, thankfully! I will definitely be getting more S bras when the new designs are released.

So pretty. Sad it didn't fit my shape. Dang you, Ewa.

This bra was purchased used while attempting to determine my Ewa Michalak size. Size wise, this bra was a miss.
My measurements at time of purchase: 27 inch snug underbust (68.6 cm), 26 inch tight (66 cm) and 41 inch bust (104 cm). For reference on the EM website this puts me at a 65H and a 28JJ using ABTF calculator. Though, I believe I was around a 65J (according to EM) when I measured in centimeters instead of introducing error by approximating/rounding/converting. Going forward I'll use the size by ABTF.
The band rides up a good amount. Again, I did buy it used so I don't know ... how stretched it was. The shoulder straps hit my armpit area, but it isn't as uncomfortable as my Braology bra or any of my Freyas. It is only uncomfortable if I'm laying down, which I don't do much of while wearing this bra.
The gore almost tacks, but due to my asymmetry from ribcage I'm not sure if I'll ever have a fully fitting gore unless it's really short.
The bra is gorgeous. I don't normally do red but this bra makes me break out of my color comfort zone. It's also very well made and the quality is apparent.
My one complaint that makes me hesitant to wear the bra is that when my arm (or anything) rubs against the side of the cups it sounds like someone is crinkling cellophane. It's a little weird.
I'lol probably keep it around. It's nice looking, and almost fits. I'm not too picky on fit.
