Wow, I love this bra! Even though my experience with Ewa Michalak bras was fairly limited up to this point (having only tried PL and S styles), I decided to take a chance on this brand new style, and I'm so glad I did! This is one of the best fitting bras I've had in a long time.
First, the construction: The cups are a stiffer, non-stretch material on the bottom, with 2 vertical seams. One seam is pretty much in the center of the cup, and the other is a little bit closer to the gore. The top part of the cup is a stretch mesh, with ... no seam or embellishment at the very top of the cup, so it lays nice and flat - perfect for my tall roots and FoT shape. I can wear a 30 or a 32 UK band, depending on the stretch and I feel this band is perfect for me on the loosest hook. There are 4 sets of hooks, so combined with the fairly firm band, I should get a long time of wear from this bra. The straps are fully adjustable.
Onto the fit: Almost perfect! The gore is a soft tack, but the support is great. The cups are deep enough by the gore to accommodate my center fullness. And, as I mentioned before, the top of the cup lays nice and flat. I wore this to an outdoor art festival in the heat, and it was comfortable and kept my boobs from being a sweaty mess. The pictures I posted are after wearing the bra for 14 hours, and I didn't have to make any major adjustments all day. Any redness around the straps is not due to strap irritation, it's actually sunburn from apparently not applying sunblock well enough by my bikini straps (oops!).
Long story short, this bra is a wonderful feat of bra engineering! I will definitely be getting it in black, and I hope EM makes it in other colors/patterns!
