    UPDATE: After Strapgate (lol), I've come to the conclusion that this bra does NOT fit as intended. The cup is too large and isn't supposed to be as full coverage as it is on me. I'll probably still wear it with the straps "too tight" (as it's fairly comfortable and looks good under clothes), but it technically does not fit and is for someone with larger breasts than mine.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW: I have . . . . difficult boobs. They are very soft tissue, FOB, absolutely empty on top, narrow root and somewhat close-set. My boobs invariably fall to the middle where a high gore pokes ... them and a low gore can't keep them contained in the cup. Balconettes are almost always too wide in the straps (narrow shoulders too, of course). They need to be lifted, but not too much (projection-wise) or they completely flatten out on top.

    This bra AMAZINGLY fits all of these problems simultaneously. The gore is low, but the cups are designed in such a way as to catch the fullness (squashiness?) in the middle and keep it up and "in" (for lack of a better description). It also curves around over the top in such a way that it feels neither open nor closed (both of which are a problem with my breast shape) but I feel will work for a wide variety of breasts.

    The band is firm but not crazy firm like the Ewa lace bands are and there are 4 pairs of hooks in case of stretch.

    Additionally, I have pretty tender skin (the reason the Cleo Lucy (5851) didn't work for me is the scratchy fabric). The cups are lined in soft cotton and the straps and elastic were soft out of the box.

    My two caveats are: 1) this fabric, while beautiful, is akin to a dotted swiss - meaning the pattern is raised and can be seen under a thin or tight shirt. I will be ordering several more in smooth fabric. 2) The straps are NOT fully adjustable. They work okay for me but I already have them pretty much all shortened up so if you need them shorter, you'll have to alter it.

  2. This bra is so beautiful. I am currently obsessed with mint green and I had to have it. Ideally I would have wanted a 34J but they don't make that size in this bra. I went with the 36HH because I have a couple PL's in that size. I find that I need 34's (unless the band has a lace overlay ie PL Violet) in EM bras because my PLs quickly became too loose. The PL's don't quite work for me because I spill in the middle as the day goes on. This bra is everything that I wished the PL's would be. The cup size is ... perfect and I would recommend getting the S bra in your PL size. This is one of the few bras that I don't get the orange in a glass effect. The shape is very round and not at all torpedo slope like some others have found in the S style. I think if you get that shape it is most likely the wrong size. There are four rows of hooks and I started on the second one which was to be expected since I wanted a 34. On the negative side the straps on this bra are not fully adjustable. I needed tighter straps so I quickly fixed that by taking an inch off of the straps. An easy sewing fix and if you can't sew a cheap alteration to get done. Now the cups are perfect with no gaping and no quading. One final note, the polka dots on this bra are raised. This may be a problem for those who wear very fitted shirts as the dots show through.

    I got this lightly used (worn twice and hand washed). I knew the band would be tight, but I need the smallest possible gore. The bratabase measurements of various sizes indicate that the gores in 65 bands are lower than the gores in 70 bands. Fortunately, the 2 hook extender I have on hand fits it. It fits well with the extender and the gore is barely acceptable, so this was a good call.

    Update: I wore this riding hard all day in a horse clinic (12 hours; in the arena at speed and on rocky, hilly trails, on my big moving horse). Worked beautifully, and I had princess boobs all day. <3

    Name means "puff" in English.

    I love this bra. It is absolutely beautiful! However, as EM's usually do, the wires run narrow. This did not fit me, but I will miss it.

  5. This is one of my best-fitting S style bras. The gore doesn't quite track, but it's not as bad as my Satine by a long shot. I just love the uplift in the S styles though. So flattering.

    I could do without the raised polka dots on this, though. It's become a winter-only bra, because I can only wear it under a sweater.

  6. This bra is beautiful! Seafoam green cups with white polka dots, beautiful mint lace, cream satin ribbons, oh my! The cups are well constructed, with sturdy materials and great care. Unfortunately, the cups are just too big for me. I think that this style probably runs 1/2 cup size small, since I can almost get away with it. However, I think that this bra is probably best for someone in a UK28FF, or maybe someone on the fuller side of 28F.

    The S cut, as I have found, does not really suit my breasts very well. First of all according to Ewa's website, it is for "difficult" breasts which I do not really have. The wires are very very stiff and supportive, which is what holds everything together. I actually prefer softer wires, my ribcage is rather bony and it is more comfortable when a wire is both flexible and semi supportive.

    The cut of the cups seem to suit narrow, projected and full on bottom shapes best. I am the opposite of all of these! Regardless of shape, the bra still looks pretty good on me.

    The band on this bra is very firm. I would say follow Ewa guidelines on band size. For me, the 60 band would probably have been perfect (for 59 cm ribs), the band rides up slightly on the tightest hook.
