I was very excited to try this new style, and overall I'm quite satisfied with it. Here's some (hopefully) helpful info for those of you considering this new style: -The band runs tight! I've found that while I generally wear a 28, for some EM I can wear a 60, while other models I need a 65. I definitely would need a 65 in this model--with this 60 I have to wear a full 4 hook extender, which makes the straps far too wide for comfort. -The shape the bra gives reminds me more of the S shape than the SM or BM shapes. My breasts are very centered and ...the profile is very projected and rounded, with a bit of a peak. I personally prefer the rounded, slightly minimized appearance of the SMs, but for those of you who are S fans, you'll probably love this shape. -The bottom half of the cups are a sturdy fabric, but aren't lined or padded in anyway. The top of the cups is a very stretchy tulle like fabric. It's so stretchy, in fact, that I wonder if I wore a size smaller if I would get a more rounded shape--but in reality it would probably be too small on me. -This fits in the same size I wear in SM and BM--for S's I take a size larger Read more 117 more words
I can't quite decide if this bra is too large for me or not. The tough thing about being in between sizes is exactly that... the 65GGs really are too small. 65H....slightly too projected for my size. I was hoping getting an Sf would actually alleviate this issue that I anticipated with 65H--I had a feeling a Bm would have been too projected, but Sfs are kinda known for being less projected than Bms... not sure if it's the bra or if it's the size.
That being said, this is one of the most comfortable bras I own right now. Except for one thing--I cannot ...loosen the straps as much as I'd like to and it freaking HURTS. It's not that they're not long enough, it's that if they're any looser, the bra has no support. Or maybe it just feels that way to me.
Part of the issue is that the stretch mesh on top is not very sturdy. I kind of expected it to be though! I feel like if it were it would have done a better job.
And of course, I get the infamous wrinkling along the wire, but it's no big deal, I expected this.
Overall, not quite sure what to make of this bra. I did *just* get my period so perhaps I'm at my smallest right now. Read more 116 more words
This is a replacement for the Ewa BM Bibb that I received last week. I think this is a lovely bra. The cups are quite narrow and not too high. The gore tacks nicely. No rubbing or chafing. The top of the cup lays nicely, no gapping or quadding. I really like the cup shape, it's nice and round. Fabric nice and smooth. This bra has a nice, crisp look.
I had really high hopes for this bra, but as with the Bibi though, there is some pulling and sagging at the bottom of the cups. I feel like my breast is in there, but still pushing down, causing ...distortion at the wire. You can see the drag lines on the side view as well.
Not sure where to go from here. Would a different size help? Or is this just not a good shape match for me? Need more projection at the wire? I'm tempted to order a cup size down and see what happens. Aack!

This is a gorgeous golden beige bra with full coverage cups. Size is 70G. Construction is of very high quality. Lower cup is a shiny fabric with 3 sections; 2 vertical seams. The top, horizontal section is a stretch net. I absolutely love this bra, and it would be a perfect every day bra, but it is obviously too big for me. The band is too long and the cups are too big. I'm already on the tigthest hook.MamaPaganLeProfessor advice as to what size I should order? I am thinking I should go down the equivalent of 2 cup sizes in unpadded and 1 cup size in padded. I also have a 65G PL Chalet...I'll load photos of both for reference.
I love this bra. I will buy it in every color Ewa makes!
Previously, my only experience with Polish bras was trying on a handful of padded Comexims and Ewa Michalaks. This is my first unpadded Polish bra. I really like the rounded shape the padded bras gave me, but they kind of felt like armor since I wasn't used to wearing that much padding. This bra is the best of both worlds! It gives me a great rounded shape, but it's all me, no padding.
I just wore this for an eight hour workday, and it was comfortable all day long. The band is a little snug, ...but I'm sure it will be fine after a few wears, and I don't think I would want to make it any longer. I caught myself looking in any reflective surface I walked by today, hoping to get a glimpse of my awesome profile.
The bra it self is basic but pretty. It's a very shiny net on the bottom portion of the cup with tulle on the top. The tulle is very soft and is completely flat. There are cute little button adornments at the gore and tops of the cups, which is a nice change of pace from bows.
I think the straps might be a problem for someone that is taller than me, since I have a very short torso and they are basically completely extended. So that's something to keep an eye on.
This bra is a marvel of engineering, I don't know how she does it. I'm excited to try some of her other unpadded styles. Read more 164 more words
The lower part of the cup is a very stiff unlined fabric without any give. The band is tighter than expected, even after sizing up due to other reviews. There are small button accents on the gore and each strap, which I prefer over the typical bows. The straps have a decorative design embroidered on them which makes them stiff and not as stretchy as I'm used to from Ewa. It has the four part cup construction that is very supportive. I think with time and an extender breaking in the band would make it more comfortable, but it is at least a cup size too small for me.
After going on a crazy Ewa spending spree, I realized that I don't have a beige bra to wear under white shirts! I ordered this one from Levana Bratique; it came very quickly, which was awesome. (Ordered it on a Thursday and it came the following Monday, through USPS first class. I was pretty impressed!) Unfortunately, though it fits in the band and the gore, just like the other SF styles I have, the top of the cup didn't lay flat on my chest. I had a feeling the double layer of tulle would do that, but I wanted to test it out, just in case. I'm going ...to return this for a different BM or SF style in a beige color (probably the Apricot, since I have pale skin) with the stretch lace tops, since I have a lot of success with those styles. Other than my personal fit issues, the bra is quite lovely! It's a plain, elegant sort of beige bra, with little button details on the top of the straps and on the gore. It's well made, like all Ewa bras, and quite comfortable. I don't know if the tulle fabric along the top edge of the cup is what makes it so, but the cups seems slightly bigger. (I had gaping at the top.) Read more 110 more words
I have narrow roots, center fullness, and soft tissue, and this bra suits me pretty well. The band however seems to be quite snug. I usually wear a 30, sometimes 32 in UK bands, and if I ordered this bra again I would probably size up again to 75F. I get angry, long lasting red marks from the underwires if I wear this bra for a full day, and it feels a little constricting. I like the shape it gives me, and I don't have many bras with nursing clips (this is the nursing/KM version of this bra) so I still wear it but usually pad my sternum and under-boob area for comfort.
The cups run large. Unpadded ewa michalak styles seem to run ~1-1.5 cup sizes larger than padded styles. And if you're in between cup sizes I would recommend choosing the smaller size in this bra, because the stretch mesh at the tops of the cups stretches well, but wrinkles noticeably if you're a little small.
I am keeping this bra (for now) because it works. I love Ewa bras. The cups are a little too wide and a little too big (can't quite fill either side). On my smaller side, the strap is cinched as short as it will go and it's ok. A 70FF might be worth a try.
