The name on this means “green pepper” which I don’t feel is appropriate. It looks nothing like my most hated vegetable. This bra is a beautiful hunter green overlaid with black lace and a huge black bow.
I am trying the S cut again because the gore doesn’t tack on my 60J - Ewa Michalak » S Syrena (790) . It is difficult to know if it is a shape mismatch or too small from one data point. The gore tacks on this one and I feel more comfortable in the slightly deeper cups. The cup depth is the same as the 60J - ...Ewa Michalak » Chp Arlekin Bra (1152) (11.75”) that I have in one cup size smaller, so it demonstrates what Ewa means “runs large in the cup” for the other bra.
This bra is very tall on me, but because of the closed cups, it fits. The only gaping is due to the straps being set too wide. The cup height increased .25” from the 60J model. Looking at the 60L model’s height, it is safe to assume that cup height increases .25” for every cup size, at least in in the J+ range. For short breasts, it feels like a balancing act between cup height and cup depth, and my tissue doesn’t allow me to compromise on depth. The cups still feel a little small but going up another size will make it too tall.
The band on this feels tighter than my other 60s even though it stretches to about the same length, around 29”. I experience some wrinkling of the cup on the bottom outside curve, near the armpit. Despite this cut being known for its shallowness it has managed to stay in my IMF.
This cut seems to be tricky for short breasts. There are better cuts out there but I like having more options, and it looks fine under a shirt. Read more 215 more words
The S Zielony Pieprzyk is a padded balconette style bra in a Deep Hunter Green with black lace. The cups are lightly foam lined plus they have removable pads that are labeled by EM for the correction of asymmetry. The pockets for the pads in this bra are sewn completely into the bottom of the cup, unlike the CHP style which is only sewn on the curve of the wire and not across the depth of the cup. The color of this bra is spectacular, and the pictures do not do it justice at all.
The band measures 23.25” with a max stretch of ...29.5”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.
Cup Depth as measured by: 1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance. This measurement is: 12.75”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 14”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
The cups are 9” in height at the center of the cup, and consist of 4 sections-3 lower vertical and 1 upper horizontal. The removable pads that were included were quite small in comparison to the size of the pockets & to my other Ewa padded bras. While I don’t use these removable pads, I know this could be a concern for those who need to use them, as they wouldn’t fill the space nearly as well as a larger cookie would. The straps are wide set, which is a common issue. It has a deep green ribbon on the front 2/3rd of the strap, which was sewn on while the strap was stretched making it accommodating. The back 1/3rd of the strap doesn’t have this ribbon and is fully stretchable. If you read my PL Dark Magenta review, you’ll understand why I mention this as a key point.
The center gore is set at a max of .57” and the wires touch at the top then slightly overlap mid-gore before separating into the two cups. The height at the gore is 4”. The wires are 6” from top to top, and the wing height is 4.9”. For the 70K, the center gore was .625”, so slightly wider without the mid-gore overlap, but the height, wires, and wing were the same.
This bra is added for data purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database, but since I did measure it, I decided to add it anyway.

The band measures 25.5” to a max of 35” with 3 hooks and 4 rows of eyes.
The cup depth measures 12.5” (as measured by hovering the cup between the knees and placing the tape measure into the cup without any resistance) and stretches to 14” over the knee without the cookies. The cup construction consists of 4 sections -3 vertical parts to the bottom with 1 horizontal part on the top and a pocket for the removable pads at this size.
This bra fits fairly well, although the cup is a bit small so I end up with very /slight/ quad boobing. It's probably the best fitting bra I own, although the center gore does not lie flat. It's quite comfortable and keeps my boobs from moving too much throughout the day. I like it quite a lot
My best fitting bra's are the Ewa Michalak S-series, so as expected, this also fits well. The band is very tight, but I'll always wear it with an extender for the first while. The colour is a beautiful deep emerald green, with polka-dotted mesh on top, and a ribbon in the middle.
I've also bought the matching bottoms in size 38 (my normal jeans size is 27, pants size 38) and its a bit loose, but very comfortable. Not sure if the 36 would be better or if its just the shape.
