    70GG

    Hasn't set fit

    When I was in Kraków, Poland for work recently, I wanted to visit a store where I could try on some Polish bras 'in the flesh'. Didn't have much spare time so I could only visit 1 shop for max. 1 hour.. Some googling led me to *Brafitteria*.

    I was somewhat disappointed when it turned out they mostly sold regular / UK brands like Freya, Gossard, Cleo and Panache.. No Avocado or other Polish brands. But luckily they did also have a small collection of Ewa Michalak! My experience with EM so far was limited to the two bras I already owned (70H - Ewa Michalak » ... S Turkusowe Kwiaty (703) and 70GG - Ewa Michalak » Pl Kicia Szałowa and I had never tried any unlined EM bras.

    I was especially excited to try Czarna Mgielka, as I've coveted that bra for years but was never sure which size to order.. and semi-cautious because I'd read about scratchy fabric / tight band, high wings and possible stabby gore; making me want to try it on first. The Brafitteria store had Czarna in 70H (too big) and 70G (too small). So a classic Goldilocks moment 💁🏼 but very useful to determine my size and confirming that the rest of the issues I could deal with. So YES I still want Czarna and I'll probably order it soon in 70GG!

    Anyway, back to (edit: not Ty Wiesz but) Ja Wiem..: I had _not_ expected to fall for this bra. I'd seen it around on EM's website but I dismissed it as too boudoir (and too expensive to justify buying just for occasional wear) - and I didn't like the rhinestones. But at the Brafitteria store it was one of few bras in my size, so I did try it on and... WOW, epic uplift! This bra felt great, almost like it was made to measure. No straps chafing my armpits (hallelujah!), no wrinkling, comfy band, wires pretty much perfectly matched my IMF.. And I actually really liked the design. Very pale powder pink with contrasting black seam finishing, like a ballerina gone bad girl 😉

    So, because I had allowed myself to get one bra as a souvenir from Poland, I bought the set!

    I've worn it frequently over the past few weeks, with good results. This bra is really well-constructed and very comfortable. The 70 band fits snugly on the second (out of 4) set of eyes. Same as my other EM's in a 70 back, that I've been wearing on the 2nd hook from the start and progressed to the 3rd hooks on thinner days or between washings. Fine by me and as I've found Ewa's bands to be pretty stretchy-but-sturdy, I wouldn't go for a 65.

    So in this bra's shoulder/armpit area, I don't know what magic they used but the straps do not bother my armpits - at all. On my first EM (Kwiaty, S style) the straps were wayyy too wide set and I've altered them since. On Kicia, my second (PL style) it was better, but on this SM the strap placement is awesome. Hoping Ewa will apply this to more future bras! Also, the wires are nice and low under my armpits! Chafing straps and poking wires often bother me, but this really is a happy-armpit-bra 🙂 Yay!

    However this bra is probably 95% but not 100% perfect, some small issues considering projection / size:
    The wires are quite narrow (feels like a smidge too narrow, perhaps?). After wearing, the wire marks on the side do align well with my breast root / IMF but under my boobs, the marks are a bit too low. This is often an issue for me (and usually much worse), with buckling / folds & 'orange in a glass' in bras with insufficient projection. In this bra, the projection angle is a bit weird actually. It doesn't project forward (like a 90' angle) but more upward (like a 50' angle), if that makes sense? I believe this is also what makes the wire slide down a bit. I'd almost consider a 70H for projection - and because on my bigger side, there's some in-cup quadding next to the black seams, where the powder pink fabric has more 'give' than the seam. But the cups in this size are already quite tall on me (the straps will definitely show under anything other than high-necked shirts) and the 70H Czarna was definitely big, confirming that 70GG is probably the best size for me in unlined Ewa's.

    Oh and I also bought the matching strappy briefs, which look amazing on (with many laces & straps, great design!) and fit very well in size 40. So far I've experienced Ewa's briefs and thongs to run pretty generous, as in other brands like C'Kate, Gossard etc. I normally wear 14 (42) and sometimes even upsize to 16 (44).

    So all in all, some nitpicking issues aside, Ja Wiem is great and I'm very happy with this unexpected purchase from Poland!


    P.S: Sadly the rhinestone adornments cannot be easily removed like I'd hoped, as they are actually part of the sliders to adjust the upper straps. Guess I'll have to get used to them or attach new sliders. Removing the straps is also an option but IMO this would make the bra less special?

      Thank you for the comprehensive review. I'm impressed with the lift you're getting, too.

    • Great review. How do you feel about those doubled straps in the back??

    • 3

      I suspect that doubled, harness-y type detail of the straps at the back is actually what is preventing the bra straps from bothering your armpit. It probably results in the straps sitting on your shoulders in a more comfortable position as they are angled more toward the center of your back.

    • I believe the SM runs super shallow like that in order to lift the breasts higher - some people get amazing uplift in it, esp for FOT firm types, iir

    • 1

      Looks beautiful on you! This particular bra never appealed to me either, until I saw your review and pics. I especially love the back strap detail - it really does look like it makes a big difference in comfort. The more even division of tension along the back of the band is so simple and brilliant if it directs straps and pressure to more comfortable positions. I wish she made it an option on all her bras now!

    • 1

      wendybien , Stinkmouse & chirality , you're probably right I hadn't even realized! How the back straps are probably making a difference in the way the tension is distributed. So yes I really like the look and feel of this doubled back strap 😊

    • 1

      And oops, browsing EM's site to see if there's more of this double back strap glory bras: I just realized this is Ja Wiem, not Ty Wiesz.. The black&white picture on Ewa's site confused me 😬 Edited review with the right bra name!

    • LOL thats so funny - my first notification of update on this bra took me to the old one and the second notification came here

    I love this bra! I missed out on Ty Wiesz which would have been my first choice but only because I think the tan would be a little more flattering then the pink. It's so sexy in a classy way. It is made to the usual Ewa standards and both the bra and the brief fit perfectly.

    Pros:
    Super gorgeous, great quality, comfortable, low gore, spaghetti straps are fully adjustable, straps are pulled in a little because of how they're done on the back, lots of bows and sparkles, and it lays relatively flat under clothes.

    Cons:
    Seems shallower at the wire, straps are almost a smidge too long.

      Wowza!!! Gorgeous!!

    • Love4Pollinators Thanks! It's definitely a stunner.

    • After seeing 1347854 of ty wiesz recently, I feel like my one should stay with me.. it's so sexy but then.. who will look at it beside me?! It's typical bra to show off to partner. Or maybe I'm just crazy and should wear it anyway?;)

      Btw, it looks great on you!

    • 2

      martka00 yes, wear it anyway! I think wearing an awesome (and / or sexy) bra under clothes makes me feel good (: don't wear it for a partner, wear it for you!

      And gratiat it looks great 👌🏼 seems we had similar fit issues but yes overall this bra is seriously amazing!!

    • 1

      martka00 I think you should wear it anyway! It's a super secure bra so great for everyday. Also, at least in my case, I find that wearing bras like this makes me feel awesome about myself.

      bubblegum Thanks! I hope Ewa comes out with other SMs like this.

    • 1

      Amazing! The pink still looks great on you. I'm jealous. I wanted the Ty Wiesz SO bad, but I also missed out :'( I will probably have to mourn the loss forever because I just don't think the Ja Wiem would look good on me.

      I guess I'm going to give it a go soon :) thank you ladies for encouraging me

    Hasn't set fit

    Edit - I am disappointed that the cups in this bra in this size are NOT 4 part.
    Gorgeous bra. Very sexy but does not look sexy on me at all. The band was very loose and is comfortable on the tightest set of hooks. The fabric is some sort of magical flimsy mesh. I feel I am too heavy handed (and boobed) for a bra this delicate. I am sad to have to send it back - the doubled straps in the back are heavenly.

      This is gorgeous on you, too. 4-part cups are so supportive. Perhaps Ewa Michalak will create a similar model with 4-part cups. Sigh.

    • Love4Pollinators thank you for your compliments. EM's website has a lot of pics of this bra and some of them the bra has 4 sections. I assumed in my size that it would be. Guess that's what I get for assuming!

    • 1

      Oh that's frustrating....especially considering the cost and wait!!!

    • 3

      You're one size off from the 4 part cups. In a 65 band, K is where it switches

    Didn't fit

    I lusted after this bra the first time I saw it and when it went on sale at Zathyia I decided to pull the trigger. The SM cut by Ewa Michalak is new to me and it is achieving great lift but I have some other fit issues due to the mesh not having any stretch and the cup design - not apparent in my pictures is the puddling of side breast tissue on my larger side and also if you look closely the underwires are not in my IMF which means this cut is too shallow for me OR the mesh will not allow my tissue to the bottom. Nevertheless I can still find times to wear it and hopefully by summer I have dropped a couple more pounds and I won't be as squished in. Emojis are for modesty - not as brave as some of you! 🌸💐🌸

      This is one of my favorite SMs! However I think you have the Ja Wiem, which is the pink version of Ty Weisz. :)

    • 1

      But I agree with gratiat , it looks like Ja wiem.
      Looks great on you !! I also own this beauty and almost sold it but now theres no way Id so! its very sexy and comfortable piece of art *_*

    • 1

      Yeah, SM is too shallow at the wire - somewhat intentionally, as it pushes the breasts higher

    • 2

      Oops! I will fix the bra - thank you everyone! I thought bratabase would catch me...saw other pink ones under this name but could be my eyes lol

    • 1

      I didn't realize I posted twice-oops. I thought my first one didn't post. I find the SM to run shallow in general, especially at the wire.

    • 1

      Yes very shallow but it pushes everything up but for me it caused side boob tissue to escape on my larger side.

    • martka00 That's just it! I have never seen this design anywhere else and also it's probably not going to be around too much longer so I figure I'll keep it...the mesh is so ethereal like it's misty. Beautiful design.

    • 1

      do you have pants as well? i got myself but i think i need to get size smaller :D they look sexy as well

    • I actually only got the bra martka00 but you are right about it being a beautiful set!

    • Hope you dont mind me asking, how do you find BM Bibi the new one? is it true to size? i

    • martka00 Yes the BM Bibi is true to size plus the stretch lace is much more forgiving and also comfy.

    • it looks also like it doesnt have huge coverage! so im hoping that mine also will be little less, as it vary between different BMs! thanks dear! :)

    • martka00 Sure! I am kind of between sizes because of my asymmetry so my smaller side got more coverage than my larger in the Bibi. I always waffle on going down a size as I know my small side will say wheeee but my larger side can be crammed a little but with the stretch lace all is good :)

    • 2

      Ive grown recently a little and my bm 65f is quadboobing now :O but I cant size up as that would be too big definitely.
      I was asking as i got before BM Magnolia and Klejnot and both had full coverage comparing to Szmaragd, Bordeaux and Chaberek as these 3 expose my small boobs nicely.
      Damn I love this cut and I wish all of them fits the same!

    • 1

      Looks great on you! Reeaally love the look of this bra <3 even if it is a bit shallow at the wire.
      Funnily when I reviewed mine I had the exact same mix-up of the name 😉

      Also interesting to see the scaling in sizes of this style; your 95E definitely seems to have less coverage than my 70GG - for me Ja Wiem is great as well but a little too tall.. Would still be SOOO nice if Ewa offered alterations like lowered cups, as Comexim does!

    • 1

      bubblegum Oh ya you did get more coverage! Interesting! This is the only bra I've tried that although shallow gives me some upper fullness from my pendulous full on bottom shape and mostly fit except a small amount of side boob escape.

    This bra is really sexy with these straps. I must admit, it looks really nice and fits quite good.
    I don't know why some bras has so wide straps and some of them like Ja wiem and Rozowa mgielka are just perfect for me. Also they're not too long, so ladies with low boobs may struggle I guess.
    The straps on my boobs should be adjusted differently, however this doesn't look nice, so I have to find the fit for both somewhere in the middle.
    Wires are again very comfortable like in mgielka, fit perfect around my boobs
    Cup depth, unfortunately this is the place where troubles are ... coming. It's not like this bra is one size too big. It's only like 1/3 too big on my bigger side and 1/2 on smaller. It's a acceptable actually. The shape that Ja wiem gives is deifinietly better than Rozowa Mgielka (I wish mgielka gives this shape so I'd keep it) but still not as good as my BMs (gosh I'm in love with bm style so much ❤️❤️).
    The band is comfortable, not tight not loose - perfect!
    Overall I'm very pleased with this bra but it's just too sexy, I have no use of it as my bf lives far away and we see each other not too often.. So I have no use of it and keep it for just looking at it there's no point.
    It's really nice and worth to try it on

    • Wish you had this when were swapping :P So beautiful, but I wouldn't really have much use for it either. Still very tempting, but I'm sure someone will grab it soon.

    • Yeah it arrived after unfortunately :(
      But I agree if you wouldn't have much use of it there's no point coz it's too beautiful to stay in the wardrobe

    This bra was the reason why I placed my last order. At the first try I was a little bit disappointed. Not because of the look, but because of the fit. Even if I had read more reviews of “Ty wiesz” before purchasing, I wouldn’t be able to predict all the issues. Happily they're not important enough to send the bra back.

    The band – it’s just a little bit looser than most of my other bras, I wear it on the second hook out of 4. Otherwise, it’s very comfortable.

    The cups – this is where I am disappointed. My only SM bra, czarna mgielka, has become one of ... my favourites. It gives a very rounded and natural shape which I love. I supposed that other SM bras would give a similar shape but the both I recently ordered definitely don’t.
    The shape is pointy and the bottom of the cup is shallow, definitely not suitable for those who need projection. Since my breast tissue is kind of “malleable”, this is not a major problem, but the result is this pointy shape which reminds me of the 3DM Pompadour.
    If find the cups particularly low in this bra. It’s not perfect for my breast (I have a little quad boob), but it goes well with the design of the bra.

    The straps – as already mentioned in many reviews of its twin “Ty wiesz”, “Ja wiem” has very long straps, certainly because of the double strap feature on the back. I think that the straps length should have been adjusted to this but it seems that the adjustable part of the straps has a regular length.

    These issues affect a little bit the fit, but the bra is so beautiful that I’m definitely going to keep it. I love the light rose tulle. This colour matches my skin tone even better than the nude "Ty wiesz". I would love to wear it under white tops but I will certainly never dare :D

    A very sexy bra with beautiful rhinestone accents! Reminds me of many gorgeous pieces by brands like Dita von Teese and Marlies Dekkers that I've admired from afar but unfortunately been sized out of. Graphic black lines over pale pink tulle, which fortunately doesn't read as overtly "pink" on pale skin. The straps are only half adjustable, but are noticeably more narrow-set than other SMs, perhaps because of the double-strap configuration in the back. The shape, sadly, is not as rounded as some of my other SMs.

    LOVE THIS BRA. The cups are kinda tall, and since I'm high set, it gives an interesting cup fit. I have at least 1/2" space between my IMF and the wires (cant move the bra up, its already in my armpits) and since the cups are so sheer it looks a bit strange.
