I've been searching for bras that fit for years, and I have only finally just got around to trying Ewa Michalak. I know, I know. I'm excited to report that my first attempt at an unlined Ewa is actually a pretty great fit. I just made it into the available size range with a 65F. I usually struggle with unlined seamed bras, so I was pleasantly surprised. The only slight fit issue is that the wires are a little tall under the arm for me. I had more success with this bra than the unlined Comexims I ordered at the same time, which I will also be reviewing soon. Full review of the 65F - Ewa Michalak » Sm Czarna Mgiełka (481) on my blog!
My shape is projected, full on top and centre, with tall and narrow roots, soft and self-supporting tissue, and super close-set. My usual UK size is 28FF/G depending on how open on top the bra is.
I got this bra in 65G because I have a BM Lulu Bra in the same size that has wrinkles only on my smaller boob. For some reason I always have to size up a cup in Ewa Michalak. Apart from the wrinkles (which I hope disappears when I wear it near my period), this bra fits me perfectly - the band is snug like a 28, the cups are narrow and deep, ...a bit too open on top/ centre for me, and not as tall as my BM. Hence I don't really understand why I'm having more wrinkles in this bra than in BM. The gore is also low and slightly overlapped which makes it so comfortable.
I used pasties in the fit pictures because I don't want my nipples on the internet, as the mesh is see-through (so nipples might be visible under thinner tops). It's a very elegant and sexy bra. Read more 80 more words
I love this bra. It’s the best fit I think I’ve ever accomplished in an Ewa Michalak bra, which is saying something! This bra is straight from Poland and the Ewa Michalak website. It surprisingly didn’t take very long to be manufactured and delivered. Maybe 2-3 weeks, tops.
The bra itself is made of mesh and is very sheer. I like it sheer, I had a Fantasie bra when I was a smaller size (Sienna Vertical Seam) that I loved because of the sheerness. It made it totally sexy. This bra is pretty sexy too and would be a fun little secret to wear out and about for ...sure!
It’s very comfortable. The gore tacks well, pretty firm. The band is snug but comfortable. The wires are probably pretty close to perfect on the sides, although the inside sides of the wire (the gore, etc) are probably a little too close together there. I do have some empty space between the wire at the chest and my boobs, which you can’t see in the pictures as well but can see in person. This is how EM bras fit me, and I don’t see that changing. The gore is almost too narrow on all EM bras for me!
The straps are pretty nice as well, they’re skinnier straps than what I’m used to but they’re functional. The adjust to decent lengths for me and my short torso.
The cups are 4 part, I think, with 2 vertical seams to give lift. The top of the cups are adorned with flowers, I think they may be considered embroidery, but I'm not 100% sure.
Overall, I love this bra, I love the look and I love the comfort, the only qualm I have is that it may actually be a size too big? I’m trying to lose weight right now and I’ve started going to the gym, so im worried that sooner rather than later this bra will be way too large in the cups. The top of the cups loosely sit flush, and you can see some wrinkling by where the straps meet the cups. There’s about a finger’s worth of space between the wire and my IMF at the bottom of the cup. The cup is also very deep (15.3 inches!!!) Read more 270 more words
I have wanted this one for a long time, especially after rachaelll posted it here. Ironically, this is the same bra.
The sheer black mesh is gorgeous and pretty sexy AF. I’m not sure what the details are on the cup edge...something floral? It’s smoother than it seems under snug clothes but not invisible either. Despite all of the measurements being right, the band feels tight even though I have enough room for two fingers under the band. It’s weird. The website does mention that it’s a tight band.
I’m unsure about the bra because it’s tight, but I love the sheer mesh and details as well the lightweight, breathable feel, but I’m also getting a great shape. I might see if it will relax more with a bit of wear, but perhaps not all day at work wear yet. It definitely looks good. It’s just not too comfortable for me right now.
This is my first SM bra. And it’s amazing! I was sure that it would be too closed at the top like most unpadded bras are for my slightly FoT shape, but it fits surprisingly well. I’ve been looking for the perfect sheer black bra, and this is it. It’s sexy and simple with just the right amount of details. I adore the lace and the huge bow at the center gore. The shape is nice and rounded but somewhat natural. SM Czarna doesn’t feel super supportive for me, but it’s not really a bra for heavy working days or running around anyway. It’ll be perfect for lazy ...summer days!
Unlined cups usually end up wrinkling on me but this one doesn’t at all. My breasts are slightly different shape, and the right breast fits perfectly in both the cups and wires. The more projected left one slightly tries to bulge over the center gore, and the wires are a bit too wide on that side as well. Overall, it’s definitely the best cup size for me. I also like the narrow and low center gore, as usual for EM. The straps are really wideset, but it’s not a deal breaker for me. However, the band is really big (for my 26 inch underbust). I can easily wear this on the tightest hooks and it could be firmer still. I’ll need to get the band taken in or then just sell this and buy in 60FF. And I need the matching panties!
Overall, I’m really pleasantly surprised with this bra. It’s gorgeous and (almost) fits. No I want more SM bras! Poor bank account. Read more 164 more words
I did not mean to purchase this bra because I already have it in this size. I found it on a resell app that I was not familiar with and I thought I was putting in my address and paypal details for the app, but I was actually entering them for the purchase! This is my all time favorite unlined bra, so I figured I would either keep it and have two or list it. This is an older design of the bra with several details that differ from the new one I have. The band is a see through mesh which I added a photo of next ...to the newer bra to show the band comparison. The newer band is a black fabric that's a little more rigid. The band measures shorter unstretched, which gives it a firm fit when wearing. Not as firm as the newer one I have or a PL band, but definitely more firm than the PLM band. The bow detail on the center gore is a much larger bow than the newer one. The elastic for the straps is two layers, with the top layer being similar to the elastic Ewa uses now that has the little loops coming off the edge. The bottom layer is a little wider so the loops are covered, which adds to the strength of the strap itself and keeps the adjuster ring in place well. The cup height is a little taller, which could be from wear. The wires are a tiny bit softer and shorter on the outer side. The overall construction and fit feels very similar, with the only difference I could feel being the band firmness. It's still my favorite unlined bra and I'm very impressed with the quality of this bra considering it may be a bit older. Read more 196 more words
Man this is a gorgeous bra! I've had my eye on it for a long time, and I finally received it (I ordered this almost 2 months ago). It's definitely much more supportive than her 3DM cut and the cups are pretty deep and narrow. I would say that this style runs small, because I typically wear a 55FF and this fits me pretty well in a 55G (although the cups are slightly taller than I'd prefer). The wings on this style are very tall and the straps are wideset (and also just pretty wide for the size range). The fabric on SM has no stretch, so choosing the correct size is important. The top lace is fairly firm and may cut in on FoT breasts. The band for me is true to size, and I don't see a reason to size up from your normal band size. I love this one!
Please ignore my terrible sunburn in the pics haha.
This bra is a very sheer, subtle sexy bra. The three part cup consists of one layer of sheer black micro netting. The side wings have a sheer portion that joins the thicker backband fabric. The back clasp is a 2x4 closure. The straps are a black elastic with a sheen to it as well as some scalloped edging. There little black bows where the straps meets the cup. The center gore is made of sheer mesh with a larger black bow in the center. While this fits, it feels as tho the cups are a little short for my liking. I guess I’m just used to my BM cut bras. Overall I do love this bra and will get some good use out of it.
I got another new bra. I chose a 70K because the 70 band is ideal but I've been sizing up lately to get more cup volume without having to go custom. However, I had read a few reviews suggesting that this particular bra might have tall cups so I decided to size down a cup volume since I have short roots. Unfortunately, this was a bad decision on my part because the bra is too small for me. I don't find the cups on this bra to run particularly tall at all, and they're also not very open on top, so I have some noticeable quadding. So I'd say that this bra runs TTS, and has average cup height, and the cups are somewhat closed on top.
