      It's beautiful and looks so lovely on you.

      I'm getting antsy waiting for mine (in an S and an M), I've wanted it since she posted it to Facebook.
      Did you get matching bottoms?

      Nope, they were too expensive for me :( But luckily the bra looks great with navy blue panties! <3

    60FF

    Fits

    I am in love with this bra! It’s not what I ordered, though. I bought Syrena in the new M model in 60FF, mainly because I could get a 60 band without special ordering. Something got mixed up, and instead I received S Syrena in the same size. It turned out to be a lucky accident really, since the M cut would have been probably too small for me, as it was described as shallow.

    This is my second bra from Ewa Michalak after my “test bra” 65FF - Ewa Michalak » S Orzechowa Pralinka (711) , which was loose in the band and had a bit ... of gaping at the top of the cups as well. I was afraid that the 60FF would be too small, but it fits quite perfectly! With the pads in I get quadboob, but I prefer not to wear extra pads anyway. All pictures are taken without the pads.

    Syrena is just incredibly beautiful. The combination of emerald green, navy, and fuchsia is really unique and works so well. It’s difficult to capture the colors in photos (especially since I barely get any daylight during January in Finland), but they are very rich in person. I love everything about the way this bra looks, even the black and pink “Ewa Michalak” logo next to the cup. The bra feels very soft and comfortable. It gives a great cleavage and shape without being too over-the-top. Cups fit well, and the wires are quite perfect. The center gore seems to be low enough for my close-set breasts, and it even tacks. The gore is quite narrow as well: the wire channels are slightly overlapping at the top. The only moderate fit issue really is that the band feels slightly loose on my 66cm/26 inch ribcage. Luckily there are 4 rows of hooks! I think I would ideally need a 55 band from Ewa Michalak, unless the band runs super tight.

    I also got the Syrena thong in size 36. I think it fits true to size and is just as beautiful as the bra. The cut is flattering and super comfortable. Also, the big bow at the back is really cute.

    Overall, this might be my best fitting bra yet. Dammit, my bra budget will be ruined since I now want everything from Ewa Michalak!

      It's a bummer that you didn't get what you ordered, but it seems to have been a happy accident!

    • jlcl119 Yes, it turned out quite fine really. :) And now I know my S size at least. It'll be interesting to see your comparison with the M version!

    • 2

      I'm always so surprised to see how closed at the top S is in smaller cup sizes! Its so completely open on top up in the J/JJ range

      it does look great on you, tho

    65F

    Didn't fit

    I've had this bra for a couple of months now and have just worn it. It's been in my drawer while I waited for, tried on, then sold a M Syrena in a 65F. I decided to keep the S cut. Both cuts are not ideal for me for different reasons. I decided S Syrena's specific imperfections were more comfortable for me and so she stays.

    S Syrena is a padded balconette from 2015. Its name translates to "Siren" and it is a mermaid bra for sure. The cups are a shimmery emerald green covered in navy eyelash lace (the exact same lace as 65G - Comexim ... » Victoria Plunge (CUSTOM) actually. I also want to note that EM M Magique, Comexim Beauty, Comexim Sonia, and Comexim Rita are all the same lace in different colors). The bra band and straps are navy blue elastic and the seams are covered with shiny ribbon. Green on the horizontal, navy on the vertical. The green ribbon also trims out the wings and the front of the straps. The elastic on the interior of Syrena is green on the bottom. The bra is finished off with bright fuchsia bows. A big one at the gore, little ones at the straps.

    The band on this is true to average for my Ewas. It is soft and comfortable. The band is wide and distributes tension well. I am on the loosest set of four eyes.
    The straps are fully adjustable. It takes a little bit of force to get the sliders over the seam of the ribbon, but they will pop over it. They are comfortable. Not too thin, not too stretchy, and not too wide set. The sliders stay in place and don't slip down with wear.
    The wires are narrow and not pokey.
    The cups themselves are where my issue with the S lies. In my size, they are not projected enough at the wire. Apex projection is awesome, but I don't need it there, I need it below. Because my roots are also short I cannot meet the top of the cup where all the room is. I need to use pads, which makes the wire space even shallower and not able to stay in my IMF. The wires don't get shoved down far enough to hurt during the day. They will hurt if I'm sitting too much, especially if my posture is poor, they will dig into my ribs. Ordinarily this is not something that I tolerate. With 50 bras in my house, there is no reason for me to. But, Syrena is gorgeous and almost made for me in her color scheme (also not possible to have made in my beloved CHP, which would solve all my problems). There are just some bras that are worth the compromise, to me Syrena is one of them.

    The underwear, both the brief and the thong, I purchased in a 38. Because my last order ran so small I wanted to be cautious in my pick for sizes. I can fix too big, but I cannot fix too small. Luckily these are spot on. They are comfortable and don't pinch anywhere. They don't ride up or slide around. They're a moderate rise and the briefs are full coverage. The green panels in the front of both are a single layer of sheer fabric and they are both finished off with huge bows in the back.

    • I had these same problems with the 65G. Wild Muses suggested the S Collette because it seems significantly more immediately projected and is more closed on top. Hoping!

    • Yep, S is not a good cut for me. I knew that when I ordered, but it's so pretty!
      Colette is gorgeous! I have it in a CHP and it's a favorite.

    • I may wish I had requested the CHP Colette. Hoping for an unusually projected S. ;-)

    • I'll hope for you too!

    70GG

    Didn't fit

    This is a flat-out gorgeous bra - iridescent teal with a navy overlay and orchid bows.

    The fit isn't great for me. The band is too firm; 70 is supposedly the equivalent of UK32 but this fits more like a firm 30 or even a stretchy 28. The cups are too big for me; my old S models in 70FF were noticeably too small so I went ahead and skipped up 2 cup sizes, but I guess Ewa Michalak cups have more difference between them than I expected!

    I also think I may be going off the 'S' shape, it's not quite as comfy for me as the unlined models such as BM. You have to fit the shape perfectly, which I maybe don't anymore. They have a very even, round shape where I'm more pointed in the apex, maybe? It's a shame because they're cotton-lined, which is super-rare in a fitting bra, and they're great for T-shirts and stuff because they have their own structure.

    I LOVE this bra so much! I call it my "mermaid" bra lol. The navy blue, emerald green, and magenta work perfectly together. The fit is amazing! Not all of my S bras fit the same (I have 6 at the moment… two more on the way!) and I love the fit of this one. The cups are about .25" taller than some of my other S bras and the cups feel a little deeper too. I would say that the fit is very similar to the Glamour, which is great because that is currently my favorite bra that I own. I highly recommend this S style! It's gorgeous, super comfortable, and the silhouette/lift that it gives is amazing! :)

      I noticed the cups seemed a little tall compared to my 65FF - Ewa Michalak » S Jeżynka but I'm okay with that. It's such a gorgeous bra.

      Beautiful indeed. I just dont wanna start with Ewa M. because I heard that you become addicted to it with the first try and I just cannot affort that because of the lack of money.
      Nevertheless I adore beautiful art and this bra is art. Gorgeous!

    Edit: I just want to update after having it for a few weeks and wearing it a few times. I didn't think this bra would work well for me at first, but I've finally had my "angel's singing" EM moment. This bra is extremely comfy and the straps don't bother me near as much as other bras I own do. I made it through a 2 hour bus trip with this bra and the wires didn't bug me at all. In fact, I love this bra and style so much I ordered another S style because of how comfy this bra is and the great shape it gives. ... That's how much I've come to love it.
    Oh Syrena, how I so wanted to love you. I think this review might run a little long, since I want to compare this size and the next one up (just fyi). I originally tried this bra in a 65G, which almost worked and would have been totally passable if it weren't for the long stabby wires of doom it possessed. Yes, I had a minor bit of gapping but that wasn't noticeable under shirts. I decided to sell that size and move down to the next one to see if it would fix both the wires and gapping. It did, but not without other issues. First appearances are the same: this bra is gorgeous. Second appearance: holy crap this is shallow and wide. I was hoping for narrower wires because 5.4 (original 65G) is too wide for me but this bra is JUST AS WIDE. It's a size smaller and it's 5.5 inches wide! It makes the bra shallower and I'm really disappointed because I was finally hoping to have a bra with wires as narrow as my roots. Onwards. The straps seem stretchier than the 65G, although I do not have the other size to compare to. They are similarly difficult to adjust but they are set at a more comfortable width. There's almost no immediate projection so I have a little wrinkle. The gore is the same height but in this size seems too low. The cups are deep enough for me without the pads, but I don't like the wrinkle I get in the bottom of the cups so I use the pads to fix that which then makes the bra a teensy smidge small. I can deal with that. The wires seem short enough at about 9 inches and I doubt that these ones will pose an issue. The band is, again an issue and almost too tight. I have no idea why I didn't size up in band and down in cup for this bra (that would have made too much sense, I guess). I think that's it about the technical side of things. I do like the design of this bra and I am keeping it, I just wish I could have figured out how to make it work better. I think that this size would be a winner if it had more immediate projection which I think is the reason I quad ever so slightly with the pads in. It does feel comfy but not very secure, like if I go down the stairs too fast my boobs are going to escape. About the pictures: yes, I am aware that I have those little bulges on the side. I scoop and swoop them in but they don't stay. They stay in the cup in the 65G (I think because of the tall wires) but that wasn't a reason to keep the bra alone. I have no idea why they won't cooperate. Doesn't mean the cup is too small, the next size up is a smidge too big. I am also aware that my problem child right breast gaps a little. I was just too lazy to take the bra off and shorten the strap. These issues won't stop me from ordering more from EM. I feel like I've figured out what size works best for me and now I just need to try all the styles.
    Edit: Almost forgot to add that the gore overlaps, making it very narrow.

      This is what I experienced, too. My shorties could not fit near the wire which resulted in zero lift. However, I had better results in 65G with a friend's CHP and PL. I don't know if I will attempt another S because of this 65G S Syrena. :-(

    • 1

      I do love the S style and I hate to realize this but I don't think it's quite the right style for me. Totally passable decent fit, but not the 'angels singing, light from above, transcendental bra experience' I was expecting from Ewa Michalak. Oh well, that's just another excuse to buy more, right? For science

      I am just so tired of her wide set straps which cut into my underarms. What is with all thes super wide set straps? So many women complain about this, yet they never listen. I have given up on Ewa. I am going to try Commexim.

    • 1

      My Comexim Yoko is actually I think a little more wide set. I do like what Comexim has to offer and the lower prices/greater comfort but their designs just don't pull me in like Ewa's do. I know it's silly to sacrifice a perfect fit for aesthetics but I've yet to see a Comexim I absolutely need. What I do like most about Comexim is the fact that you can custom so many things, like strap width.

    • I order all Comexim with straps moved in. However, the one Comexim with standard straps is significantly more narrow than my Ewa Michalak. I so wish she would entertain customizations.

    **ALL PICTURES WERE TAKEN WITH PADS IN**
    This bra is so much more beautiful in person than online-if that's possible to believe! This bra is gorgeous. The navy and dark green really work well together. However, I think I overshot my size. While the measurements all point to this being a perfect fit, it was a little gappy at the top without the pads in (which is why I took pictures with the pads in). I think maybe a size down would be better, but then I think it would be too narrow-but let's start at the beginning! This bra is seriously beautiful. My first impression was how solid ... it seemed. The construction is pretty neat and looks built to last. The attention to detail is incredible. I like that the ribbons on the seams of the cups are two different colours. The only thing I would change would be the placement of the eyelash lace. I think it would be more striking if the eyelashy bits stuck over the cup like they do in the other shape. The band is a plain navy with ribbons on the side seam and little scallopy green trim on the bottom and a ribbon ruffled down the front of the straps. The bows on this bra are awesome. The magenta really pops and I love how big the one on the gore is. The straps don't pose a problem width wise and I'm pretty short. However, they are super difficult to adjust, even though it says fully adjustable. The front of the straps has really pretty ribbon detailing but it was causing problems getting over that seam. My solution? The rat-tail end of a rat-tail comb-just wiggle it into the loop in the adjuster and slowly ease it out. I had no problems after that. I can adjust the straps short enough (I'm 4'8") which is always nice, but I think I need to go a smidge shorter. They are very wide and super comfy and plush. I doubt this will pose a problem. Width wise, this bra seems perfect, although it's the same width as some of my bras that feel too wide. They're nice and short and don't poke me in the arm pits like some I have. The cups...the cups are weird. The sizing is weird. It's 9.5 inches (without pads), which should be a pretty good depth for me, even verging on small. However, they gap without the pads in! It's not like I don't have the breast to fill it (I have breast tissue up to my collar bone and I think a pretty even shape). Despite this quandary, if I keep the pads in and really scoop and shuffle and adjust the straps pretty short, it's a nice fit with minor gapping at the top. I think the gapping at the top is simply due to shape and how thick the cup is. The shape it gives is...not quite rounded, not quite natural, maybe a little east-west? Whatever it is, I like it, and I normally love a more natural shape like the kind an unlined Freya gives. It's very perky and young. The wires are a very firm tack and feel super supportive. The gore doesn't poke at all and it's super comfortable. The band is super tight at 28.5 inches and it barely works for me. The band is the one thing I would change. Give me just .5 more inches of stretch and 3 hooks instead of 2 (on a G cup, really?) and I'd love it. There are are 4 rows of hooks which is nice. I also ordered the thong for this model and holy crap guys, don't let the stock photo fool you. It is SHEER. Very sheer. I think it runs true to size. It's not a snug fit on me but it's not too loose. It's beautiful though. I tried to take photos of it (in my darkish room with an ipod) but I'll see if I can take better photos when the sun is out. It has 3 bows, two baby ones in the front and then a giant one in the back. It's got a little frill at the top of the band and the eyelash lace on the sides. The back/sides of the thong has the same frilly scallopy bits the bottom of the band does and the crotch area has the strap detailing on it. It feels like a very cohesive set and I feel like an absolute princess in it. Although I think it's maybe a size big, I have no plans to return it because it's wearable and I bought it for a special occasion in a week so I have no time to go through an exchange. This is a very comfortable beautiful bra and I'm so glad I bought it. And next time (because there will definitely be a next time) I'll get the same style in the next size down and compare!

    **EDIT** I shortened the straps even more and there's absolutely no gapping. I can still easily fit a finger or two under them so they aren't tight. They are now the perfect length and the best part is the cleavage! I never thought it would be possible for me to get that much cleavage in a bra that fits as perfect as this one does now. The last picture is the bra with the straps adjusted as tight as comfortable.

    **EDIT TWO** Since shortening the straps (see addendum above) I can wear the bra without the pads. However, it causes slight gapping on my smaller right side and I love the cleavage they give me so although I can wear it without the pads I choose to wear it with.

      Beautiful!!

      Beautiful! It's so hard with ewas bras sometimes cuz they are handmade and there will always be discrepancies with sizing because of it.
      It's so stunning though!

    • It really is. I think the problem with the sizing I had was in my haste to try it on, I hadn't quite figured out the optimal strap adjustment. I just added a picture showing even shorter straps and extra careful scooping and shuffling and now that I've figured it out I even get cleavage! I normally don't get cleavage, at least not this obvious. It's usually very subtle so it's nice to have variety.

    • curious why you went up to a G when most of your listed bras are Fs or DDs? Usually ppl only go up one size from their UK size? I really do wonder if it would fit better down a size. OTOH, I mound out of the top of my Ss, and you dont have much room to go up - it would be up to your collar bone!

    • All the dds and one F (not the Freya one) do not fit, despite what the pictures say. I'm trying to figure out my correct size. I was going off of the Freya which has a cup depth of a little less than 10 inches (off the top of my head). It is the only bra I have listed besides this one that I would call a perfect fit so I've been using it to figure out sizing. While the difference between my overbust and preferred band size is 7 inches, I found the F cup I tried to be too small (okay, way too small) and based on measurements users have submitted I have deduced that an FF or a G would work best, provided that they have a cup depth between 9.5 and 10 inches. This bra, with pads in and after I've adjusted, is actually a perfect fit. Since I've shortened the straps even more, I have no gaping. I could probably get away with a size down but I think with the pads it would be a tight fit and might be a touch too narrow.

    • Apparently I can't edit. I should have added that I'm not adjusting the straps just to make the cups fit, I'm just extremely extremely short with boobs all the way up so I need very very very short straps or I feel gappy and wiggly and unsupported.

    90GG

    Hasn't set fit

    This is the mermaid bra of my dreams! I haven’t bought an S bra from Ewa in a couple years, and now I’m pregnant, but I was worried the cups would be too big in a larger size. I used to wear an 85GG in the S style, but I went up to a 90GG, and it’s perfect! I always do an alteration on balconette bras because I have a short torso, and the sides come up too far into my armpits. After I did that alteration, there are no issues at all with the bra. I won’t spend over $30 on any other bra except this brand, because the shape is unlike any other, and it gives me a confidence boost whenever I wear it. A+

    Didn't fit

    I love the color and materials on this bra. The inside liner is cotton and a lot softer on me than the CHP Noir, which just has the foam. I am still trying to experiment with which EM bras will work for my shape, semi-conical with a shallow upper portion. As expected, it’s too tall for my shape. There’s a good inch or so where my breast doesn’t meet the top. The bottom of the bra is completely filled out and if I place the cookie in, the bra becomes painfully too small on my larger side. However, the top gap does fold down and under a shirt you can’t tell that there is a gap. It's still worth keeping despite the tall cups.

    Edit: after washing the bra, the top gap is less immediately noticeable. The gore is also not tacking, if I press on it then the top gap closes up.

    This bra is not owned any more
