As soon I got this baby home, I snapped a pic of it and sent it to the boyfriend with the caption, "I hope you like this, because it's never coming off my body." Holy moly, what a gorgeous bra. The pics online truly do not do it justice. The cups have a similar lace pattern as the Ewa Michalak Pl Orange (545) , but this one feels more subtle and, in my opinion, better -- likely because the pattern is the same color as the rest of the lace. The metallic sheen is not obnoxious at all, and can only be noticed as metallic in ... certain light. The bra is almost luminescent. Words may be failing me, but trust when I say it's GORGEOUS.
As for sizing, I agree with a previous review that the band is very stretchy. I tend to run somewhere between a 75 and 80 in EM bands, and this feels just a touch too loose than I'd prefer it starting out. It doesn't ride up, praise be to Ewa, but it doesn't feel as firm as I'd like it. The cups fit true to size for an S model. The straps, a gorgeous mint green, which play perfectly with the aqua blue of the cups, are fully adjustable -- thank you EM! I hope she keeps up making her straps fully adjustable, as they are appreciated.
I also bought the matching briefs with this, and they run TTS for other EM panties I've purchased. The fit is closer to a short than brief. If you're debating whether or not to get the matching panty, honestly I'd say to pass. They're fine and comfortable and all that, but I wish they had more of the beautiful lace rather than being mostly the matte fabric on the band of the bra. I don't regret buying them, but EM has done better.
