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.

This bra does not fit me (too large in the cup by 2 cups), so it is difficult to review on fit.
The band on this one runs quite snug - about a half-size small - so if you are on the upper end of the band size, I would go up. I would say this runs more like a 65F-FF in Ewa (or a Cleo 65FFish according to measurements).
This bra is quite pretty to me. It is not really beige or cream, but more of a light peachy color - shiny fabric but covered in lace so it is more elegant. The little bow and jewel between the breasts is understated and pretty. The straps are wide and stable. The lace on the cups does not show underneath shirts and the seams on the cups are very flat.
It comes with pockets and pads for asymmetry correction (not all S bras do), so that is a nice touch.
