So this bra has been languishing in my drawer for months, due to it's terrible fit. Same issues that can be seen in a handful of other user's pictures here: tons of gaping at the top of the cup, a weird sort of orange in a glass effect at the bottom with the lace all distorted, and a simultaneously saggy and pointy appearance.
Not to rehash strapgate all over again BUT...
I moved the straps inward and the difference in fit, appearance and support is ridiculous. So much better. Where there was tons of gaping before, I actually get some quadboob now. The shape is more subtly rounded and the weirdness happening at the bottom of the cup is pretty much gone. I think I could stand to have a bit more immediate projection in the cup but it's not glaringly apparent.
Is this a perfect fit? No. But it's wearable and now I know the strap alteration works on the lacy bras.

The lace on the Bezyk is not quite as stretchy as that on the SM Trefl (which I have in 70J as well). I noticed with this one that the lace on the tops of the cups was a bit more "open", and not snug against my breast tissue like it is on the Trefl.
Overall though, this bra does fit! I think it's absolutely gorgeous - what right does a nude bra have looking this fabulous? https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
The wires are narrow, with lots of projection, as is to be expected with an Ewa bra. The band fits true to size. Another thing I love about the Ewa bras is that the straps don't feel like they're trying to saw my arms off - this one is no different - I can wear it all day, and experience no rubbing/chaffing at the armpits. It's a very comfortable and functional bra! Gives the same wonderful rounded shape as my Trefl https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

So this is the first bra that I can say fits really good! The center gore doesn't tack but I have close set boobs so I might never have a gore that tacks and if I were to size up i might get a better fit but the cups might end up too big :/ I get an AMAZING shape and lift with this. I have soft breasts so I'm quite happy that the lace isn't as stretchy as the Andorra. The wires sit perfectly on my infra mammary fold. I forgot to mention that this was a bra from another Bratabase user. The band is very comfortable on me. It's not too big. I do get a bit of gaping at the top of the cup by the straps but it's not noticeable under clothes and I don't think it affects my fit much. All in all I'm very happy with my first Ewa bra and can't wait to try out more bras from her in the future!

I got this bra second hand from another bratabaser who had worn it a few times. I already owned a Bezyk in a different size (too large), and if you're interested, you can see my review of that bra. 65L - Ewa Michalak » Sm Beżyk
Firstly, a few basic facts about the construction in this size. The bra has fully adjustable straps, with a raised pattern on the strap which helps to make it more stable and hold the adjustment slide in place. The cup in this size is made from 2 vertical sections with another horizontally attached to the top, and a triangle of ... fabric joining the top section and the straps. It fastens with 3 rows of 4 columns of hooks.
My view on the appearance of the bra is just the same as when I got my first one. I love it! The pale apricot beige acts as a nude bra on my fair skin, and I really like the sheer, single layer lace cups. The lace will show up under a thin shirt, but isn't noticeable under light coloured clothing which is a little thicker.
Regarding the fit; the band of the bra is a bit too long on me, and seems to walk around on my back a bit with wear, even on the firmest hook. However, my preference is for a snug 28 band (or I may wear some 26 bands if they were more readily available), so this isn't a tremendous surprise to me. Because the band is super stretchy, I do feel like you could get comfortable support in the bra even if not stretched to its maximum length. The cups are a little too small for me in terms of depth; the lace cuts in a bit and creates an unusual shape, and I have a bit of cutting in on the top. Possibly one cup size up would be better, but it seems like this style is discontinued, and I know that Ewa Michalak is not known for consistency between styles, so I'm not sure if that would be my best size in all SM cuts. I still have a bit of empty space at the top of the cup, because my root isn't tall enough to fill the entire height. The straps are too far apart for me, and the bra actually performs noticeably better if I hold the straps further out (on my arms) at shoulder height. I also have my normal band construction problem with EM bras, in that there are huge loose sections at the top of the band between the cup and the straps at the rear. Very simply, 3 hooks isn't enough to hold the band even with such an open, deep cup on my ribcage. This does mean I seem to have zero wire spring, and the wires will move away from my body. However, it's the first bra I've tried in a long time where the wire width is spot on! I'm not sure if this is because there's no tension on the top of the cup or not, but it is quite pleasant.
Overall, this bra is wearable for me, and would probably be a bit more wearable if I shortened the band. I'd prefer a fit which is a bit more supportive, but this is what I expected from the bra based on my experience with other EM models- good wire width, okay cup depth, straps set too far apart, and utterly incompatible band construction.

This is my first EM bra and I was hoping for a better result. I went with a 32J because I have been having some quadboob issues with my 32HH Panache Jasmine. It's a very pretty, well-constructed bra, but I don't think the cup fabric is supportive enough. maybe it's just the wrong size for me.
I figured the band would be tight, so I knew an extender would be necessary. I didn't want to get a 34 because the few 34s I have ride up. I can't even hook this bra without an extender. (my ribcage measures from 33" loose to 30.75 super tight)
The cups have a ... lot of wrinkling along the top edge of the cup, maybe I should have gone a cup size down. I could sew a few small darts to fix this, but I don't know if I'm keeping it.
The bra is more of a beige color in real life, for some reason in pictures it looks more ivory. It's very pretty.
The single layer of lace is very delicate and looks nice on, but to me, it doesn't feel very supportive, especially on the underside of the cups. This is my biggest issue: there is a weird in-cup quadboob going on, along the center of both breasts. It's like the weight of my boobs is weighing down the lace. I tried to get a picture of it, but was not successful. Since it's happening in between my boobs, along the the underside, it doesn't show with a top on, but I am afraid the cup will give out completely in a short amount of time.
It feels a bit rough to the touch and after wearing it for about 30 minutes, the straps/edge of the cups, along the front of my arms, are cutting in.
The band did feel comfortable (with the extender) and the shape of the wires was nice, but they are just a bit too narrow for me, especially on my larger left side. The wire on the right was almost perfect, just could be a smidge wider.
The gore tacked nicely and the height was great for me, my breasts are very close together and lots of bras come up too high for me.
