Short, omega shaped, center full, close set, slightly narrow, projected, even breasts....
This is my final wired bra for awhile. My breasts are screaming, "NO more wires." And, this bra demonstrates what works for them and what causes them pain.
Attractions: *Fantastic space in the bottom of the cup *Supportive, soft lace *Firm mesh lined wings *3x4 fasteners *Narrow wires *Space for taller roots and upper fullness
Detractions: *Gore base width (unless it is a uniwire, it is too wide for me) *Too tall for my shorties
I prefer this lace to Ewa's mesh. The lace is softer and more beautiful. The matching elastics, lace, and embellishments create a very elegant bra. The band makes me smile: it is supportive. ...My typical experience with E.M. bras includes 2x4 fasteners, but this SM has 3x4 fasteners https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> Additonally, I typically find E.M. straps too wide. And, although they are wide, they didn't rub or poke uncomfortably as others have.
This is an elegant, supportive, comfortable Ewa Michalak creation. If I had a method to remedy the gore base width issue, I would surely keep her. Alas, she will support other breasts. Read more 82 more words
The shape of this bra is almost a perfect match for me. It stays in my IMF so well that before hooking the bra, I can slide the front of the bra in place and have it stay there without the straps on. Unfortunately, there is a decent amount of gapping at the top (which I didn't expect due to how well my SM Trefl in the same size fits me). Tightening the straps helps a bit, but the lace still doesn't lie completely flat. Hopefully I'll be able to fill it out during larger portions of the month because I'd hate to have to get rid of it
Love this bra. It is so gorgeous and comfortable. It is definitely stretchier than my other SM bra and gives a different shape - a bit more natural, perhaps a bit rounder, but not as lifted. The only problem I have with this bra is that it rides down under the cups although the band is tight and firm.
I got this after buying an 80GG S Ptys that fits fantastic, and this is too big in the band and the cup. Turns out the Ptys runs small, where this is true to size. Which is unfortunate, because aside from sizing issues, this bra is really pretty, comfortable, and supportive. Lots of projection, which is just what I need. I'd buy it again in a smaller size.
I bought this bra from another Bratabase user along with an SM Trefl, also in 65J.
This is another beautiful bra from Ewa Michalak. The color is a creamy white/beige with some pearly shine to it. The band material is quite soft, while the cups are a little rougher, but not itchy. Definitely softer than the Trefl.
The fit is a bit off for me though, and I'm not quite sure why. The tops of the cups are a little loose and don't lay flat. There's also this weird indented quadding going on near the gore and out towards the apex of the cup. The gore doesn't fully tack on ...me, even when I scoop away from the gore (I have a lot of center fullness and SM's are too shallow for me there). There also seems to be slightly less immediate projection on this one when I compare it to the Trefl. It's no where near as bad as my 65H Wrozka is in terms of fit, but it has slightly similar problems.
The band feels like a 28 UK band (which I like). The wires are nice, narrow and more U shaped. Because of that, I find them much less irritating than my 28HH Lily and Marcie wires.
Unfortunately though, this one will be resold, as we're not quite compatible for some reason. Read more 115 more words
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 a very nice unlined nice bra, but it was simply a disaster for my shape. Bratabase's fit questionnaire only offers two choices: can fill bottom or can't fill bottom of cup. "Creates bizarre ziggurat effect by carving multiple divots into bottom of breast" would be the most accurate description. Similarly, I had to choose between gapping and quadboob on top. This did both simultaneously, unless I tightened the straps so far I couldn't feel my arms.
Now, this bra seems to fit great on a lot of other people here, so it's clearly just me, but, wow, no.
All that said, I loved the band. If Ewa would put this band on a CHP and move her straps in at least an inch, I'd have my perfect bra.
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet- it's my favourite bra!
The look is quite vintagey- sort of a 1940's or 50's vibe, really beautiful. The colour is beige, different to the creamy colour it appears to be on the EM website photos. It makes a great basic bra, though it doesn't completely disappear under thin tops the way a plain seamless beige would. The seams are almost flat, and the lace is so pretty I don't mind if the pattern is slightly visible under certain fabrics.
The band is very tight- I used an extender for the first 2-3 wears.
The fit is amazing, the top of the lace ...seems like it was painted onto my bigger boob, and there's only slight gaping on my smaller boob. It's one of only 3 bras (all EM's) that I'm 100% comfortable with both when I'm PMS'ing and when I'm not.
I saved the best for last- the shape! Perfection- round but not too round, amaaazing lift, centered as can be. I feel like it's not shaping my breasts so much as lifting them into the natural shape they'd have in a world without gravity. Moon boobs! Read more 84 more words
