I tried this bra on briefly during my lunch break. The band is VERY tight. It is probably too tight but I much prefer that to being too loose. The lace on the upper cups is NOT lined. It is also VERY delicate. I do not anticipate this bra will last very long before I tear the lace. I will have to try my best to not make any adjustments in this bra. I am not sure why they decided to not line the lace of this bra - it really should be lined. I feel like I have a very slight quad in this bra but I think my hormones might currently be affecting the fit. The pattern of the cups is alright but not as cute as I had expected. I feel the bra looks much better on EM's models than it does on me. The pink pom pom in between my massive mammaries is a cute little touch
My shape: semi-conical, splayed, narrow width, tall shallow roots. My breasts don't conform to bra shapes very well and are quite short.
SF Szaron is a light greyish-blue with baby pink straps and ribbons, and a pink pompom on the gore. The pattern reminds me of spring. I didn’t notice the pompom on the gore when I saw the photos on the models. I find it interesting, but odd. It’s a giant pink dot on my sternum!
It is a little different fit wise than my SF Pin-up in that the cups are wider, 6.3” as opposed to 6.1”. The gore is lower, 3.8”, and narrower, with a slight overlap ...visible from the back side only. The wings are higher. The bra’s straps are set too wide for me, and with the higher wings are a bit more chafing near my armpits. Despite this, it is a spectacularly comfortable bra. When I first tried it on I got terrible wrinkling at the outer edge of the cup and I thought it was more shallow than the other SFs. They seem to have mostly disappeared after the first wash. I’m really happy with this bra! Read more 84 more words
SF Szaron is a grayish blue patterned SF style bra, with peachy pink trim/accents and a pink pompom at the gore. As with all the SFs, the upper section is stretchy allowing for asymmetry and variation in size. In this model and size (60L) the cup construction consists of 3 lower sections with two vertical seams, an upper horizontal unlined stretch lace section above the horizontal seam, and the Ewa signature outer wedge that connects the straps to the cups securely. The SF style is not padded, but the bottom of the cup is stiffened for more support.
I ordered this one from the amazing MagdaBras4you...who offers excellent pricing and service for almost all the Polish bra brands. The SF is my current favorite style by Ewa (alternating between the SF and BM depending on my hormones, haha) and with a recent size change, I was trying to build up my SF stock in my current size. While I am not a fan of pink, I do like the grayish blue color and pattern of this bra. I previously tried it in 60KK, which when it fit was quite comfortable. It is reviewed separately.
As for fit, the gore sits 1.5 fingers off the sternum but the cups are otherwise comfortable and perfect to me. The band is oddly comfy on the tightest hook set, as I expected to be on a middle setting with it being under 27” stretched. No matter, as long as it’s comfy then I am happy, and I have yet to experience any Ewa bra band stretching out, so I am not concerned with it loosing its tension. I like that the upper lace isn’t tulle lined like most of the SF/BM bras are. I feel this adds a bit more femininity to the bra, though I’m not sure why I view it that way.
I can’t say for sure (as I’m honestly too lazy to pull the 60KK out of storage) but I swear that the trim and straps are a different color now compared to the 60KK I got last year. I thought the prior was more pink, while this one is definitely a peachy pink, with the offsetting pompom still being straight pink. I’m not sure if this change is just in my mind and failed memory, or due to the changing of the straps from the wonderful thicker straps to the current thinner flimsy straps that have been on my last two orders.
Now for the technicals: All measurements are taken prior to trying the bra on to insure no figure is obscured by the body. I also take all flat measurements before taking the stretched cup then band measurements for the same reason.
The band measures 22” and stretches to a max of 26.75”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops. Yes, this band only stretches to 26.75”! While I love this fact, I know this would be quite problematic for anyone who needs a true 28 band.
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: 12.5” 2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 15.25”
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.

This bra is a pretty muted color combination of light and dark grey, white, and pastel pink. The quality of the bra is excellent. There is stretch lace across the top, with a stiff material across the rest of the cup. It seems like it would provide great shaping in the correct cup size. I was very excited to buy this bra from Stinkmouse. Unfortunately, as mentioned in my review of my 65JJ Pin-Up, I lost cup volume suddenly between ordering and receiving bras, so the cups are way too big. This bra band is also stretchier than the pin-up, stretching to 31 inches. ...I find that a band stretching to 30 or a little under is my ideal. This band immediately felt like it was sliding up my back, even on the tightest hooks. This makes me continue to feel nervous about which band size to order in the future from Ewa, it seems like I might have to make the decision on a style by style basis based on other people's reviews of the band. A true 60 band would be too tight, but a stretchy 65 band doesn't work for me either. Don't you all just wish once we figured out our size you could order bras and they would fit! So despite adding to bra science I still feel confused. I am definitely going to wait a while before I order more bras to see if my current size is staying for a while. Read more 144 more words
Another round of EM bras to try! These are all what I could find in my sizes for sale in the US, do somewhat limited. All of the 75Fs on these have three hooks instead of the 2 on the SF Iris, which I prefer but I think it kinda wierd?? All are without extenders, like the Iris I feel like I'm between a 75 and an 80 band.
So I actually love the look of this bra, with the exception of the pink pom pom on the gore. I go back on forth on whether it's cute or weird lol!
When I first put this on I like the ...look better than the SF Iris, and I like the 3 hooks and wider straps. I have about an underwires width if empty space on the side of the cups and some wrinkling in the bottom. I think if I size down for width it may end up being too shallow and have worse wrinkling maybe?? I'd probably wear with an extender until it's broken in a bit. The colors are so pretty but again I'm torn on the fit! I'm gonna need to wear it for a day and see what I think. Read more 94 more words
Too small in the cups again. Got a bit of quadding https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I've just got to mention how SOFT the fabric of this bra is against my skin. The fabric is the SAME on the inside. It's crazy, crazy soft. I love it. The band fit comfortably. I think it makes it more like a 65 band.
Szaron is classified as a Semi Soft bra (aka Semi Padded), though it has no padding what so ever. The logic is that the material is stiffer, and thus EM considers this padded, which it clearly is not. If you are looking for a padded bra, this is not for you. If you are looking for a supportive bra, then this one is perfect for you. Aside from the misleading description of the SF bras on EM’s website, this bra style is quite nice. The color on the cups is a light blueish grey with white and pale pink accents. It also have a pink pompom ...at the gore. Personally, I’d prefer it to not have the pompom. The upper lace is stretchy which allows for fluctuations in fullness as well as asymmetry.
The band measures 22.75” to a max of 29.5” and has 3 hooks with 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”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 15”
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.
At best, I get a soft tack in my SFs at this point on lower tide days, and no tack at all at higher tide. So far, Ewa is not willing to do an SFs in a 60L, so I make do with the 60KKs. They do fit for the most part and are comfortable. I do find the SF to be more supportive (less jiggly) than the BM style, which is definitely more comfortable.
