    Firstly I want to thank the lovely Scharminkeltje for forwarding this to me from Poland. Along with my recently acquired Lawenda, I feel like the Burek truly completes my collection and I can now stop buying bras! (Hehe, if only I didn't know myself better...) Everything I've read about this bra's embroidery... magical, whimsical, fairytale deep green vines and pale pink flowers over a transparent nude tulle base... is totally true. It's exquisitely gorgeous in the most understated way. Secondly, like my 65G - Ewa Michalak » Sm Malinka (392) and 32F - Ewa Michalak » Sm Summer Time (554), Burek definitely belongs to ... the subset of SMs that's more accommodating to a more full on top/center full shape. It's very uplifting and gives a nice natural rounded shape, at the same time being incredibly lightweight to wear. The embroidery definitely shows beneath thin shirts, but that's excusable for a garment so beautiful. Lastly, the grading of this bra seemed to lend itself really well to taking in the band (I altered it to approximately a 30FF), whereas with other brands, shortening the band on a sister size can mean that the gore or wires are still too wide. Luckily that wasn't the case here! I'm in love with this bra. If anyone has any matching bottoms they'd like to sell, I'd be thrilled to buy them https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

      Wow! So jealous! That's the prettiest of all EMs good you found it!

    • Burek was my first Ewa and my first SM. It's still my favorite.
      Where did you find it?

    • jlcl119 It was lightly used off of Allegro, I couldn't possibly pass it up!

    • VioletIridescence will you message me your method for taking in the cups on your Malinka? I had a Nana that is about 1/2 cup too big and I passed it along to my mom, but if I can make it work I'm going to take it back!

    • Sure can!

      wow, it's such a beauty! <3

    • Beautiful!

      So so beautiful if I had to get a "beige" bra this would be one I could give up my hate of them for ..not that it should even be in the same class as a boring old beige bra . This looks like a fairy bra perhaps a wood nymph . how do I get one of these magical bras ;) sigh seems doubtful but at least I know it lends itself to alterations and I am getting good at those .

    • I love this bra, it's one of the Ewa's I'll likely never be lucky enough to find... but I said that about Gazeta too and managed to get one of them! So I keep my eyes peeled now and then for it!

      Holy crap, triple comment there. Oops. Silly internet.

      Thanks everyone! This is exactly why I wish Ewa would consider re-manufacturing some of her bras! So many beautiful designs it's a shame they get discontinued after one season!

      This bra is stunning! And it looks absolutely beautiful on you. :)

    A little about my boobs first. I'm high set, projected, with tall narrow roots, I look FoB when standing and thought I was for a really long time but I'm actually even to slightly FoT when bent over, I'm wide set with little center fullness, I have soft tissue, with a lot of muscle that screws up calculators.

    I bought this second-hand on a whim. I thought it was gorgeous and frankly bought it on looks alone being completely unfamiliar with the brand. Boy, am I glad I have little impulse control. This turned out to be "the bra", the one I compare to all others. This is my ... holy grail bra.

    First, look at it. It's stunningly beautiful. It's whimsical, it's sophisticated, it's elfy. That's right, elfy. I want to frolic through forests and climb trees in bare feet and this bra.

    Okay, with that out of my system I should probably discuss fit.

    As I said, I bought this second-hand, but I really don't think it was used, if so it wasn't much, because the band was still tight tight tight when I got it. I have a tight 27" and comfortable 29" underbust and like a loose 28 (or an extender) or a tight 30. This 65 feels like what I imagine a 29 would. It's snug and supportive, stays put, and disappears against my bony ribcage. It's a perfect band for me on the loosest hook.
    The cups fit me really well. Standing up straight with shoulders where they should be they are perfect. The wires are in my fold and perfectly follow my root. The gore keeps my soft tissue from escaping anywhere and tacks nicely. If I slouch I get a bit of gaping near the inner gore where I have no fullness. The bra expects some there, I think, but I just don't have it. That gap doesn't bother me. As I said, it's only upon slouching (which I shouldn't be doing anyway), isn't noticeable under clothes, and is minimal anyway. The SM model is not made in an E cup, and I don't think it would fit me if it were since the rest of the cup is filled nicely even when the inner gap is present, I bet I'd quad right out of it.
    The straps are nice and fully adjustable, I just find the whole thing very comfortable.

    I wear this bra as often as I can while also wanting to hoard it forever and ever. It's my favorite bra, my introduction to Polish bras and their wonderfully narrow underwires, and the death of my bank account.

    By the way, Burek supposedly translates to mongrel. What an odd name for a gorgeous thing.

    I was establishing my size in Ewa Michalak's brand and ordered the same bra in 75G and 75FF. The 75G is a perfect fit, the 75FF is too small in the cup causing quad boob effect. The bra is gorgeous with pale pink and deep green embroidery on sheer tulle. The SM construction provides very good lift and support to even heavy and soft breast tissue. Adorable.

    I simply adore the HM, and quite frankly I was really gutted to hear that it would be replaced by the SM. I was very sceptical about the fit of the SM, it looked more like a balconette and not like a halfcup, and in general, balconettes just don’t work for me. They give me quadboob and a pointy shape.

    The SM Burek, however, was so beautiful and the shape in the pictures looked better than that of the SM Trefl that I decided to give it a chance. Unfortunately, I was right in my doubts. The SM Burek doesn’t have a tight seam at the top of the ... cup, so I don’t exactly quadboob (just almost), but instead, the lace at the top flattens my breasts. This could be a good thing support-wise, but due to the construction of the cup, the result is a pair of pointy boobs with almost empty fabric at the tip of the cup. The cups just don’t work with my round breasts, and the shape is really not flattering – it’s pointy and doesn’t give the uplift I want but rather presses my breasts downwards. A huge letdown compared to the HM’s compact, upflifted and round shape https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    Here's a comparison of the shape I get from the HM, which suits my shape naturally, and SM, which doesn’t: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16490226/sm_vs_hm.png

    The band is snug but not uncomfortably tight, I can fasten it on the loosest hooks as new and it would probably stretch pretty soon. The cups are true to size, I think. The straps are broad, soft and not very stretchy, so probably very comfortable. The wires are narrower than in the HM, which isn’t a problem for me, rather the contrary.

    So all in all, it’s a superbly beautiful bra and technically it’s an okay fit for me. However, the shape is such a turnoff for me that I’ll be listing this straight away – I know I won’t be using it anyway.

    Baaww, I miss the HM https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    MY SHAPE: Narrow, projected, short roots, close set, center full, even fullness (technically FOT but my short roots make me appear even most of the time)

    FIT: This fits really well! Like my other SM bras, I have to adjust this one very carefully when I put it on or I get the slightest hind of quadding on my larger side. Once I'm adjusted properly, everything looks great, this bra just doesn't leave a whole lot of room for error! Shape is rounded and compact with a little jiggle up top given how open it is. I get a little gaping on my smaller side, but that's to be ... expected and it doesn't show through clothing so I don't really care. It's a very comfortable bra. The shape is similar to Ewa's S bra shape, but a bit more compact.

    APPEARANCE/QUALITY: Obviously it's stunningly gorgeous. This is probably one of the prettiest bras I own, it's very striking. The pinky-beige band accents the pink flower embroidery perfectly, and the dark green leaves/vines look almost like tattoos because the beige mesh disappears on my skin tone.

    OVERALL: This one is really a stunner, and I'm glad I was able to find one in my size so long after it had been discontinued! It feels elegant and special.

    I have soft, narrow-rooted and projected breasts. This is a very low-coverage bra, with a low gore. The shape it gives is spherical, apple-round boobs. In my experience, EM's padded bras run loose, and the sheer bras are usually snug; this is the tightest of all bras I've tried, though not enough to size up (I find it comfortable).

    The cups are good in width (maybe a centimetre too wide), but I would like a little more volume. My soft tissue sometimes spills over in the middle, and over the top. The bottom of the cups are either too shallow or too small; whichever it is, after a while ... my breasts creep up to find more room, and leave an empty space above the wires. The top part of the cups is also too flat, or the inward angle is too sharp, and it flattens my boobs and give them a weird rectangular shape unless I let the straps out almost all the way. It's not uncomfortable, it's just not ideal.

    The bra itself is gorgeous; the cups are completely sheer, with some of the most beautiful floral embroidery I have ever laid eyes on. The colours are all muted, dusky pinks, dark green, even the beige has a little grey mixed in. The embroidery is very pokey so it's not great under thinner knits. It certainly creates cleavage so I can see it working well with plunging necklines.

    It's not perfect for me because of my soft tissue, and I'd like more coverage, but agh it's so pretty I've decided to keep it. It's definitely not an all-day, everyday bra, but it's more of an occasion/special outfit/bedroom bra anyway. Also, ugh, gorgeous.

    SO FREAKING PRETTY. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I wish it fit me. Too small in the cups and too tight in the band. Not enough immediate projection at the bottom and center.
