Absolutely gorgeous bra. Visually stunning. The center bow gets swallowed up slightly by my breasts, not sure if that is because of size or closeness.
Warning: the Ewa fitting advice floating around the web does not seem to serve me well in any bra. Definitely did not need to size up 2 cups!
I originally ordered this in 70GG, but it was probably ~1 size too big even with cookies. More upper fullness probably would have helped. I conferred with Kaska at Ewa, she suggested the 70FF or 70G, depending on if I wanted to wear with cookies. As I had a bit more weight to lose, I decided to ... go with the smaller size in hopes of being able to wear it longer, even if I had to wait a little to wear it.
Have owned the bra for a while, but only worn somewhat regularly for a year or so. (It was a little small, and I wanted to lose a few more pounds before wearing it rather than risk stretching it.) Without cookies, the fit is generally good, though I might get very slight gapping after settling. Not sure if it is actually gapping because recently, the edge of the cup foam seems to be curling outward slightly, which gives the appearance of slight gapping (depending on my cycle, etc.), but does not seem to actually not fit. Not sure what that is about, but it is not visible under clothes. With cookies, I definitely quad and my areolae start trying to peek out of the bra. They are not huge for my size (I do not think?), but they do flirt with leaving lower cut bras. Good wire width. I am close set, but the gore is low enough that I am quite comfortable.
I get decent cleavage. Not much for cakes on a plate, but everything is front and center! (I have softer tissue and am deflated/very shallow up top, so no matter how I shove my tissue around, I never really get the super mounded, almost implant-like look.) Still manage to look boobilicious. End up with touching cleavage above the gore.
Not too visible under clothes, though I would avoid tight or clingy tops, especially if they are solid-colored and have no decoration. I can wear it with a striped fitted t-shirt, but it might not work if the same shirt was just one color.
I do not find the straps uncomfortably wide-set. Not sure that they are any wider than other balconettes I own.
My best fitting bras tend to be UK 32FFs, but in Ewa, I suspect I am currently closer to 70G, or in between 70FF and 70G, depending on the cut.
Caveats: I am full on bottom, somewhat soft-tissued, projected, slightly pendulous, close-set, inner fullness, need a lot of immediate projection. I have narrower roots. I am long-waisted and tall for a woman (5'8"). I have a smaller frame, am a bit deflated on top and have some looser skin. It is not super obvious, but likely affects fit slightly.
