I was lucky enough to buy this off another BTB user instead of direct from Poland. I've only ever tried EM's padded bras in a 65FF. I LOVE the CHP cuts, but the PL Rapsodia I tried was def too small. So I wasn't sure if the 65G in the SM style would work or not, but I was mainly curious just to see HOW the SM cut worked for me. I LOATHE pointy boobs, much like the shape that ALL Freya unlined bras give. But with the exception of my Chantelle C Chic Sexy Plunge, every unlined bra I've ever tried either gave a very unflattering shape ...or was just extremely uncomfortable and itchy. But I LOVE EM's unlined bras!!! I'm so happy I finally found unlined bras that give such a wonderful, rounded, lifted shape!!
But with regards to the Nana, can I just say....HOLY SEXY, Batman!!!! OMG, super hot!! I really wish this bra fit, it was very close, but just a tad too big. I was getting some wrinkling in the bottom under my IMF, and on the sides under my arms. But everything else fit perfectly. The gore tacked nicely and wasn't bothersome at all. The top lace edge of the cups lay perfectly on my boobs without any gaping or digging in. The straps were just right, the band was nice and snug for a 65 (but you may want to size up in the band if you're a true 30, I'm 27" in my underbust and I was able to wear this on the first set of hooks!). My mom is between a 30/32 band and she just couldn't hook this one at all, she wanted to try it so badly. Haha. But I def recommend sizing up in the band.
Just wearing this bra makes you feel super sexy, and confident! It's empowering, and just makes me feel so feminine. I ALWAYS wear padded bras, and never knew I could achieve such a fantastic shape with an unlined bra. I am in love with EM's SM cut now!! I just ordered 2 more off their website, but in a 65FF, so I'm hoping they fit perfectly! I ordered the SM Czarna Mgielka and SM Kusidelko (which is the closest thing to the Nana that they had, pairing the sheer nude against the black trim). I'm so excited to try them!! Def high quality, ingeniously well-constructed and fabulous appearance!!! Read more 298 more words
This bra is available in three styles: SM Nana bezowa (beige mesh), SM Pompadour malinowa (red mesh), SM Czarna Mgiełka (black mesh).
The Mesh fabric is just one piece of fabric, but stable enough to provide support for my breast size. I altered it to a 70FF (band length 63cm unstretched) as this bra wasn´t available any more in my usual size (70F for SM). I altered the cups by tucking the bottom part in (about 1cm) and ended up with a pretty good fit. The SM cut is far less supportive than the padded S styles and does not provide a lot of cleavage, but sepperates the ...breasts nicely. I would also not recommend to buy it for very low necklines, as the bow does show a little bit due to its size.
Sizing: I wear 30FF in my UK bras and 28G in most Freya bras. For the S Style 65FF did work out perfectly and I will probably also try 65FF in the future for the SM styles (I prefer a very snug band). If you usualy need wide wires, I would totaly settle for my method and size up about 2 cross sizes and just alter the band, as the cup, wires and strap position are proportinal wider.
Undies:I bought the Thong for this style in my usual EU36 size and got the same fit as size UK8 in my Freya or Fauve briefs/thongs. The design is very fancy, but not suitable for drawer storage, as the ruffles and the big back bow get all wrinkled.
So I took a gamble and ordered this as a 70 band was not available. Holy hell of a sexy bra!!! My hubby is going to love it. I thought it would be a cup size too large but it fits!!! I was leery about ordering a non padded bra but ordered this fir bedroom attire. I had tried another SM in a 70J with no success. It was too large in the cup but this is perfect! It gives a great rounded, projected profile. The mesh material is the perfect nude color. Maybe the mesh helps with holding the girls up as the previous SM I tried was a soft lace? I've only tried it on so I may update my review once I've had a chance to wear it.
The left cup on this fit me awesome, but the right did not. I temporarily took in the band and tightened the cup and I just couldn't get it to look nice. It's an absolutely gorgeous bra and I'm pretty upset that it was so close to working without actually fitting. I'd love to get my hands on my size or a better sister size.
This bra is so pretty! I am really sad that it doesn't suit my shape. Like other SM models I've tried, it is too shallow near the gore for my breasts, which have a lot of center fullness. I also seem to be between sizes in this style. The 70K that I usually wear in padded S and PL styles is a bit too big, and this is a little too small.
Wow...definitely the sexiest bra I've ever owned! Also my first foray into the SM cut, and overall pretty successful. The band is a little tight for me (as expected), so I'm breaking it in with an extender, but I only need one extra hook. Wire width is still a bit wider than I prefer, but it's definitely manageable. The biggest problem is that the straps are pretty wide set - even more so than the S cut I have. (At least it seems that way. It could be that these straps have a wider strip of fabric where they attach and that's why they feel wider.) They do rub my armpits a bit, but it's better than it was the first day. Overall, this is one of my best fitting bras, and I love, love, love the look!
This bra is hands down the sexiest thing I have ever worn. The cups appear a dusty mauve on their own, but are made of an incredibly sheer mesh that nearly dissappears against my skin, leaving only the black outlines framing my breasts. It gives me a very up-high, cleavagey projected look that still looks quite natural. I think Miss Underpinnings had it right when she described it as "makes it look look there's a lot LESS bra, and a lot MORE girl".
This bra has the same stellar quality and attention to detail we've come to expect from Ewa Michalak. The band is longer ...but less stretchy than other Ewa bras I've tried. The straps are completely adjustable, and there's no digging in anywhere.
The SM Nana runs about a cup size large (as compared to padded Ewa Michalak styles) and a band size small. My "usual" size at Ewa Michalak and other brands is 60H/28H, and this bra fits perfectly in a 65G. It has four sets of hooks in the back, and I wear it on the loosest or second-loosest set.
Because I sized down in the cup, the wires are VERY narrow. I'd say the wires are just right, but I do have to be quite careful to scoop properly, as there is NO room between the end of my root and where the wires start.
Ewa Michalak's bras tend to lean towards "sexy" in their design, but this one crosses headlong over to "oh-you-naughty-girl!". Don't get me wrong, it's naughty in a stylish, empowering way - this bra makes me feel like a burlesque superstar. (And the briefs aren't bad either...) Also it's a great example that a bra targeted to big-busted women doesn't have to look like a slightly modified sports bra. The Nana is positively wispy in appearance, but gives a very good support and shape. Pros: - ethereal - Hot, hot, hot design! Reserve this to your bedroom conquest moments (or well, use it if you just want to feel very femininely strong) - great shape (all the SMs work for me) - good support
Cons: - band is very tight. This is actually not a minus IMO, but beware when buying
