    Here is the beautiful, and much coveted, S Syrena. Aka the mermaid bra. And it’s mine now. ALL MINE!! It’s been discontinued for a while now, but I’ve seen it in blogs like Big Cup Little Cup and it’s been on my mind since I first saw it. I love the colours and the eyelashe lace and everything...sigh.

    So, I never actually thought that I’d ever be able to actually own it, and I’d be coveting it for the rest of my life. But in the last year of my time on this site, I’ve made friends with other members who are close in size (and sometimes shape) to ... me. Earlier this year, I received 2 bras from Sonya to try, as they were cuts and sizes that I had not tried before. They were learning bras, with the option to buy if I had wanted. After quite some deliberation, I sent both back, and included my 28G Cleo Lily parrot print, because it was just too tight for me, and the fit wasn’t good once I added the full extender. Sniff. But her rib cage is smaller than mine, and our shapes are similar, so I swapped it for the Syrena here. I had to wait until after I tried the 65G S bras that I’d had sent to me because the 65FF CHP XOXO she sent me to try was borderline small. In addition to the Syrena, I purchased the 65FF PL Milady (review to come).

    So, the 65Gs fit a bit big for me without the cookies, but decently with the cookies when I got them mid February. This led me to want to try the Syrena in 65FF as I don’t really like to wear the cookies to make the bra fit. I need as much depth at the wire as I can get, and the cookies remove some of the immediate depth. I’m ok with the cookies on special occasions for the oomph factor, but it’s not a daily wear preference. And given that the S cut is not as deep at the wire as other cuts, I really don’t want to sacrifice the room.

    As mentioned, I’m pendulous/projected and need immediate depth. My tissue, is soft and malleable which is sometimes tricksy. Roots are average to narrow width, average to tallish, but since the tissue is soft, it’s also a bit shallow or deflated, and therefore functionally short and full on bottom, even though I’m actually a bit more even (I’m just not very full and even). Supported, I’m much more close set than I appear unsupported, and I’m fairly center full. The S cut gore is a short one, but not as short as PL, and I find that it’s a bit more closed on top compared with the CHP, which makes it a good fit for short roots.

    Let’s talk about the visuals...mermaid bra is mermaid bra. The base of the cups are teal with navy lace over top. The vertical seam ribbon cover is also navy, but the horizontal one is teal, which matches the straps, and the side wing seam cover too. Navy eyelash lace appears over the teal cup above the teal seam ribbon. The band is navy with a strip of teal contrast at the bottom. As mentioned, the straps are covered in the teal satiny crinkle ribbon, and covers a good portion of the straps, and therefore render the straps only partially adjustable. In my case, I feel like I have no problem with this. The ribbon section is pretty stretchy, and I have enough room to adjust, but some others might find it a problem. And now let’s talk about the hot pink bows. They’re always seem to be brought up in reviews and I will do the same. I have mixed feelings about them. I do like the contrast colour and I think that it’s a nice match to the colours of this bra. But I’m not sure if I am on board with the oversized bow at the gore. I think it’s a bit crushed between my boobs. The tiny ones on the straps seem ok, though I typically don’t like strap bows at all. All said, it’s a visually stunning bra, and it deserves all the coveting it gets.

    Now onto the fit. When it arrived, I was a few days shy of my period, and I had a bit of spilling, mostly on the center gore half of the cups. That said, at the same time, the 65G S fit without the cookies (I updated pics in my Mojito to show the difference)...so with that in mind, I assume that the spilling was simply from high tide swelling. Since then, the swelling has gone down a bit, but I still spill a little bit at the center. I know it’s at least partly my soft, center full tissue, but I don’t know if it’s also just a tad bit too small overall. I’m reverse scooping and it’s pretty good, but not perfect. The band is the thickest and firmest of all my Ewas...just at the lower end of my comfort range. I’m not sure if it’s the material or construction or what. I’ve tried to compare with my other Ewas and I can’t figure out what the difference is, but it is definitely different. The wires are nice and narrow, but I feel like I am slipping a little bit through the day. And they feel like they are digging in. I’m not sure if it’s a band related issue or not. I think it’s a touch too shallow for me, but it’s possible that it’s also just from being borderline small. I’m curious if I would fit the 70F any better/differently.

    I’ve got lots of cleavage, and I feel like I am pretty front and center, and lifted. Side profile makes me feel like my boobs are bigger than they are. Very much a defined profile in a snugger top. Overall, it’s a beautiful bra, and I think that it’s a decent fit for me, but it’s not perfect. To be honest, I still kinda want to see how rachaelll’s 70F M Syrena fits. I think that I prefer the look of the S from the front, as a balconette style, but the PL is ultimately more comfortable, even though a bit tall cups. Am I glad that I have this? You betcha! But I admit that I am slightly underwhelmed by the overall fit. It looks good but does not fit as comfortably as I had hoped. I wore my 70E S Szykus a lot because it was so comfortable, despite being a size and a bit small. Which kind of makes me think about the 70F/FFs.

    I’m grateful to Sonya for the trade, since it was not listed (I’d stalked her bradrobe and asked if I could swap the Lily for it). It’s really a beautiful bra, lives up to the mermaid name. I’ll update with more detailed pictures later.

    • This looks gorgeous on you!

    • Thanks! Like the Lily for you, it’s a tiny bit small even not pre period on my bigger side. I’m going to see if I can get a few new pics as those ones I put up are from the night I got the package.

    • Looks great; nice cleavage. Do things "settle" once you wear it for a while, or do you still get bubbling after you've worn it for a while?

    • Wilderness1 I have not paid attention to it yet. Maybe? Dunno.

    • By the way, I did mark the bra as “it fits” because I knew that once my boobs weren’t so swollen from my approaching period, that it would be a better fit. Even as borderline small, I know what the next size up fit is like. The 65G is a little bit big in the cups without the cookies except close to my period and the 65FF is pretty close most of the time but it’s a bit small as my boobs swell in high tide before my period. Neither fit perfect but I think that I prefer the smaller fit over the bigger fit. Anyway, so yeah, I marked it as fits.

    • I do the same and mark a bra as "it fits" as long as it comes close. I have at least one cup size difference between breasts, so if it comes close to fitting on one side, it's marked as a fit.

      Wilderness1- For me, my boobs don't settle in this. The bubbling seems to get worse and more noticeable throughout the day so that I'm trying to stuff my larger breast back in.

    • Grats, this is a lovely bra.

    • This looks so beautiful on you! Beautiful bra! Very lovely colors and detail. I think it looks really nice on the pictures with the T-shirt as well.

    • Thanks everyone!

    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. :-(

      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.

    Wow. This bra is gorgeous and the detail is incredible. I love how the sliders on the straps are an emerald green on the navy straps to match the cups, and the ribbon on the straps and wings brings it all together. The matching thong is also stunning. I have many S style bras now but the fit of this one is especially impressive. I'm not sure what it is, but I think it may have more of a lift. It is also incredibly comfortable. I was uncertain whether to buy this in a 60G or 65FF but thankfully, the 65 band is comfortable on the loosest hook. It is true to size with the S Glamour and Pl Milady, and not as loose as the S Szykus and S Szafirek (I own Szafirek in a 60 and it fits very similar to this bra).
