My stats: 26GG/H according to the ABTF calculator, slightly FOT, firm tissue, tall and narrow roots, center full, close set and functionally high set.
The look: I'm completely biased to ewa's sheer mesh embroidered bras. This has been on my wishlist since I first found EM, unfortunately it was long discontinued by then. I somehow managed to scoop it up on braswap with the matching panties! The cups are plain black mesh embroidered with pink flowers and green leaves. The straps and hardware are black, the straps have small black bows and the center gore has a very large dusty pink bow. It's a gorgeous color.
The fit: The ...band fits like a 60/27 band as expected of "vintage" ewas. The cups fit me well, the straps are too wide and the center gore digs in a bit. The wires are super narrow and perfect and the immediate projection is insane on this.
Ratings and overall inpression: The quality is supurb as is normal with ewa, the design is gorgeous, the construction is great except for the straps, it's very supportive and the cups feel like they were molded to my boobs.

This is such a pretty bra! It's my first Ewa and I was really impressed by how different this is than UK bras. The cups are definitely narrower and the back part of the wire goes straight up on an angle instead of making a curved shape--which is great because this part usually digs in under my armpit, this style holds the side of my breast perfectly in place.
There is definitely more depth in this cup--13.5 inches as opposed to about 12.5 which is normal to see in this size. If you are full all around in a 30J this will definitely work for you. The band ...is stretchy, but not too stretchy, and even though it stretches all the way to 32 inches, I can still wear it on the last hook and I have a 29 inch ribcage. The top of the lace may be a little loose on top for women who are full on bottom, but I think if you have soft breast tissue or full breasts, this will be great for you.
Comfortable fabric, secure straps. The only negative for me is that the straps, which are thicker where they meet the cup, dig into my armpits a bit, but as I have been wearing in the bra the discomfort is waning. Read more 111 more words
I bought this bra off another Bratabase user at a steal, since it had a minor factory defect (one strap sewn in reversed at the back). I'm handy with a needle and had no problems correcting this.
Unfortunately, the bra does not quite fit. It's the same size (75H) as the S Porcelanka I own, and yet it cuts in at the top, giving me quad boobs. The band is also significantly firmer than the Porcelanka. That's not a big deal, I could wear it with a bra extender until the band stretches about a centimeter. However, there's nothing to be done ...about the fit at the top.
At first, I thought the Margot ran a half cup small, but now that I'm trying it on again for this review, I think it's incompatible with my even-fullness breast shape. The Porcelanka is much more open at the top so I get nicely rounded cleavage. This bra is a little more modest, attempting to cover more of my breast tissue ... with disastrous results.
In other respects, the Margot runs true to size. The narrow wires encase the bottom curves of my breast, there's plenty of projection, the gore doesn't stab at me. Other reviewers have mentioned how it's a sheer bra that still manages to be discreet with cleverly placed embroidered flowers; this is completely true. One last point: the mesh material of the cups is sturdy, not stretchy or fragile. I had no issue with comfort but it's possible someone with very sensitive skin might be irritated by that mesh.
It's overall a lovely and well designed bra, just not the one for me.
I find the wires on the SM cut are too wide for me, and the straps are too far apart. Otherwise, the band is a standard EM 34, somewhere between a 32 and 34, and the shape it provides it as described -- to the center of the chest with a slight point. Beautiful, but the SM and I don't get along.
First experience with an EM SM bra. While I do like the shape it provides, I just couldn't get comfortable in this bra. The straps were too far apart, and the wires are too wide. I couldn't fill out the cups on the bottom because of the wider wires, and I found myself adjusting the bra to fit comfortably all day. Overall, this just isn't the model for me.
The Margot is the bra that made me realise the world of DD+ cups was So Much Better than the matrix and its sea of foam cups I'd been hating, but thinking I was trapped in, for years.
The bra is just as, if not more beautiful than, its promotional photos promise. The mesh is incredibly sheer, the embroidery delicate but cannily placed to provide a slightly anchoring top edge and also hide any peekaboo nipples. (Seriously. It's amazing.) I'm not a fan of bows on bras in general, simply because they're everywhere, but there's something about the boldness of the oversized burgundy bow on this one's gore ...that appeals to me.
In this size range the cups have only a single vertical seam. Fully adjustable straps. I'd read that the band on the Margot runs extremely firm, but in fact I find it one of the loosest/stretchiest of my EM bras -- but I've also heard EM bands have been running increasingly firm/tight lately, so perhaps the Margot was simply the first of that trend. Four columns of hooks on the band -- hallelujah!
Low and narrow gore is wonderful news for those with close-set breasts, but may not be overly friendly to those with very soft tissue or loose skin.
Gives a very forward, lifted and rounded shape. I'm totally addicted.
This was my second shot at trying an Ewa Michalak bra and the results are good! The band fits comfortably snug and the cups fit like a glove. I wore it today and I didn't have any discomfort, especially with the gore since my boobs sit close together. On this bra, it sits low enough that it doesn't cause any problems. I'm also full on top and generally have issues with the top edge cutting in, but the cups on this bra are more open and has less coverage than other bras I own, so there was no problem.
The support is good and the shape is fantastic. There's some lift and the shape is rounded.
