I've had some experiences with Ewa Michalak before. I bought a second-hand 65F S Truskawki when I wore a 30F and realized it was way too small. My friend with 30E boobs currently fits it perfectly. Next I bought a 65FF CHP, also secondhand, and while it seemed to fit well I didn't feel terribly supported.
This bra, though, fits really well.
At first I was skeptical about the 70 band, but the measurements looked more like a typical 30 band so I decided to take the plunge, and I'm really glad I did. The band does stretch to 31 inches (due, I imagine, to ...the bra being second-hand) but it honestly fits very nice and snug--I think it stretches as needed.
The cups work really well for me. The wires are deliciously narrow, meaning I can accept projection a little under 10 inches. The shape suits me nicely, so even-to-FOT girls, this bra may be for you.
I've been lusting after PL bras from Ewa for a while, as I love low gores, but honestly this one is so narrow that I don't mind the height at all.
My boobs look AMAZING in this bra. It's this beautiful lift--the circles-sticking-out-from-your-chest look--which I really love and try to find. It also gives a nice amount of cleavage. However, it's also very smooth--the lace doesn't really show up under tops, and the cups fit my breasts well, so this bra works just as well as a T-shirt bra as it does for a going-out bra.
I looove the pattern and coloring. Off-white and lacey can look granda-ish and boring, but this is so delicate and lovely, even my boyfriend (who hates this style of bra) told me he really loves it. I'm also in love with the little gold charm at the center.
The bra came without any removable pads, although it had the pockets for them. I don't think it would have fit as well with the pads since it suited my breasts so well without them. Right now it fits both breasts very well but if my larger breast grows it will be a tiny bit too small on that size, but it's perfect at the moment.
My only complain would be that the underwire on the sides comes up higher than I am used to. It isn't painful or pinching but I'm aware of it because I usually prefer bras with lower wings.
Overall, this bra rates an A from me. I love it! I think in the future I'm going to keep an eye out from 65G S-style bras from Ewa Michalak. Read more 323 more words
This is a wonderful surprise. I had previously tried a 65FF Ewa Michalak S Porcelanka and found it too small in the cups, but the band was a great fit. I anticipated this 70F S would be too large, but it fits perfectly. The gore height is low enough that the cup separation does not poke, and yet, high enough that it doesn't press into my xyphoid process. The cups fit excellently without the asymmetry pads, the wires perfectly follow my root, and I don't quad. Delightful!
Edit: After wearing narrow projected cups for two months, my tissue became very close-set and center full. Because of the tissue shift, the gore was both too wide and too tall. And, the wires pushed out of my IMF because there wasn't enough space for my center fullness. Sigh.
The 70F Ewa Michalak S Satine bra fits well without the removable pads. The center gore is 2.25" high, though. I've come to the sad conclusion that a center gore much higher than 1.5" is too high to be comfortable for my close set breasts on my petite frame.
At the recommendation of the Ewa Michalak product description, I sized up in the band to a 70 (UK 32). I have to fasten the bra on the tightest hooks. The band isn't loose on the loosest hooks. Rather, by fastening the 70F on the tightest hooks, I distort/stretch the wires wide enough to enclose my side tissue. (I can ...stretch the band to 30.5," but I stretch much harder than most people when measuring a bra.)
If I decide to put up with the center gore height, I will reorder this in a 65FF (UK 30FF) so I can fasten it on the loosest hooks. The wire width will be the same as in the 70F, but the wires will take up more of the total band length in the 65FF. I believe this would give me the same stretched out wire width while on the loosest hooks, making it a longer lived bra for my purposes. But I'm increasingly reluctant to wear center gores higher than 1.5" becuase of the bruising on my sternum.
The S Satine color is a nice alternative to the greenish, grayish beige that is so often sold as a "nude" in lingerie. Ewa Michalak describes this color as "cocoa beige," but in food terms I would describe it as a peachy sugar cookie. The S Satine is a clear, peachy beige color that works well on me as a nude. This is a good reason to rebuy it in a different size. I don't know whether to do that or wait for an EM plunge in this color, though.
Edited to add: I bought a whole bunch of Ewa Michalak 3D bras in 65F after I bought this S model in 70F. The 65F 3D bras all had center gores half an inch to 3/4" shorter than this S bra. In addition the 3D cups are lower coverage. Both characteristics suit me. Read more 257 more words
I wish the S cut was more reliable with its sizing. I have an S Ptys in this size that fits great, but this does not. The band is definitely too big, so it rides up in the back and the gore is nowhere close to tacking. BUT I'll wear it anyway, at least until I can get a better fitting replacement in a similar color. Gotta have something to wear with a white t-shirt. The shape it gives is still pretty nice - I like the bombshell feeling I get in an S bra. It would just be more supportive with a tighter band.
Fits like a 34GG/36G so the band is too big for me and I think the cups would border on too small if I had the band altered. I honestly didn't expect it to fit because I typically wear 32H in the deep Cleo styles, 75-80J/K in Comexim and 75H/HH in Ewa Michalak - so I guess it's pretty true to size. Pretty in a subtle way; serves well as a tshirt bra under light/thin fabrics in spite of the lace. Very comfy. Noteworthy: very narrow gore and 4 columns of hooks. Quality materials and construction. It's not quite the centered shape of the CHPs that I prefer but it's good for lift & support.
I normally buy 65G but the Ewa website recommended going up in band size for the S Satine so I got a 70FF instead. The band is fine but the cups are a bit smaller than the cups on an average 65G. Being a 70FF (sister size of 65G) the cups should be the same, so I'm unsure if this is just an issue related to this particular bra model or what. Anyway, the cups would be ok for my smaller side, but I get a bit too much quad with my larger side. I estimate they are about 1/2 cup size smaller than I would have expected.
Love this bra. It's a few cups sizes too small for me but I don't really mind. Made out of soft fabrics, I really love the quality fabrics Ewa Michalak use despite the size inconsistencies.
It's the perfect "nude" bra for me since it has more yellow/gold tones in the colour rather than pinky tones. It;s overlaid with pale lace to make it more interesting than just a skin-tone bra.
Band seems to run tight for a 30 band, which is good for me since I usually wear 26 bands, but I will still probably take the band in at some point. The bra has 4 rows of 3 hooks.
Cups are too small for me but because of this the wires are actually ok on me instead of being too wide, like in my normal size range (26J/JJ). It does give me a quadboob effect but since this is a plunge bra it's not that bad.
Very pretty bra, the pale gold works well on my skin tone as a "nude" colour. slightly too big, but fixed while wearing the removable pads. Worth the money and wait.
EDIT - My boobs are (for some reason) getting bigger and the fit is now perfect! I'm in love with it. I will definitely be buying another! My best fitting/most comfortable/best shape giving bra. I can wear it all day without any pain of discomfort and the shape it gives me is gorgeous. I will also be buying more of Ewa's other "S" cut bras.
I like how much uplift this bra gives me. I do have to wear it with layers as the seam shows underneath, but that's not a huge deal.
The pattern does show under closely fitted clothes, but with the layers that doesn't really matter.
This bra really does have the right amount of cup width and projection.
I was afraid when I saw it online that my soft breasts, center heavy breasts would fall out the middle of it, but the bra keeps them well-contained the whole day. Sometimes I like readjusting in the middle of the day, but it is definitely not necessarily.
