Such a pretty bra, very summery as the name implies. Snug band and narrow wires. Doesn't quite work as a completely nude bra on me, but still lovely. The cups are deep and more accommodating to FOT shapes than the Kusidelko, as it lacks the lace trim on the upper cups. So happy I was able to snag this one secondhand.
I've wanted this *exact* bra for ages now. I have the CHP style and I love it, but I had no idea I'd get a chance to have this one! I almost missed out. I'm glad I didn't, but this bra isn't as perfect as I had hoped. Aesthetically, it's gorgeous. I love the embroidery and the sheer cups with the crosshatch fabric. This bra is missing two bows on the straps so maybe if I motivate myself I'll replace them. It's second hand, worn but in pretty decent condition. The band is a smidge loose on me. It stretches to 30.5 and I prefer a snugger 29ish ...measurement but 30.5 isn't bad for pre-owned. I could hook it on the 2nd row but it's not that bad. Band is nice and supportive. The cups aren't too wide and fit my roots as perfectly as a bra will. I fill the cups almost perfectly with just a little sticking up of the embroidery on top. No biggy, it's not noticeable under clothes and it lays flat most of the time. The gore is very narrow-the wires overlap-and is a firm tack. The shape is so lovely: uplifted with a nice peak but not pointy. This would be my all time favourite bra ever if not for the stupid straps. They are ridiculously thin-less than half an inch wide- and stretchy. I have to have them as short as possible for them to work. Because of how thin and stretchy they are they tend to dig in and flip over and just be obnoxious. However, it's totally worth it for this bra. I've wanted it for so long, I'm not going to let some flimsy straps defeat me. Overall, this might be my new favourite summer bra. Read more 188 more words
This is so pretty. The soft apricot and celadon green embroidery on the beige background is vintage girly. I could see my grandmother wearing this set, and I mean that in the best way. The crosshatch pattern on an otherwise plain looking band is a really nice subtle touch. The band is nice and snug at 65. Three columns, boo. I wonder how Ewa and her team decide what bras get three and what ones get four. The wires are exactly in my fold and pretty much hug my root. I have no complaints here. The shape is nice and green. Up front and lifted. The straps ...:/ I hate them so much. They're not nearly as nice as the ones that were on my 65DD - Ewa Michalak » Hm Summer Time (why, Ewa?! Why use a different elastic?!). They are sooooo stretchy and thin. These are worse than the ones on my 65F - Ewa Michalak » Sm Czarna Mgiełka (481) that I also loathe. I have the adjusters sitting on my traps already just to keep the sucker in place. They are heavily embroidered, so they're very difficult to adjust. The bright side of that is they stay put. If I knew how to replace them, I so would. I love the bra in spite of the terrible and uncomfortable straps.
Size 36 bottoms for my 38" bum and 31" hip bones. Super comfy and wicked cute. I really do love her underwear.
Edit: Ewa sent me a set of straps like those used on the CHP version of this bra. They are not embroidered, they're thicker, and they're significantly more comfortable. I replaced them in June of 2016. Read more 179 more words
I added this bra to my last order at the very last moment. I am so happy they still have some fabric left and they agreed to sew it for me. I’ve always wanted this bra, but it has never come out in my size at the time (65E). I didn’t want to custom order it in 3DM as I’m not fan of this style and HM has a very hurtful gore. I ordered two SMs because I really like my SM Czarna Mgielka for its shape. It actually turned out that both have slightly different shape. Even if SM Summer Time is different, I pretty like it. Compared ...to Mgielka and Ja wiem, it has slightly higher cups. This gives an incredible – for an unpadded bra – uplift. I’m really surprised that the cups give such a pointy shape and they are quite shallow on the bottom near the gore. All the reviews I’ve read show a very rounded and natural shape. The apex seems very projected and the cup edge is a little bit closed which causes this particular shape. Now I’m not sure if they changed something in the SM construction or it’s just my boobs.
I’m very happy it comes with the same straps that Pralinka and not the original ones. Beside of the esthetical criteria, they are less stretchy. Read more 114 more words
This bra is gorgeous, and I'm sure if you love Ewa's SM cut, it will be wonderful for you.
Sadly for me, I need more coverage at the top of the cup and a taller gore. Since my breasts are very close set and center heavy, they just fall out the center of the bra and cause quad boob.
Bra is fairly loose at the top of the cup, which I like, but may not be as ideal for an FoB shape.
Wires are pretty narrow, colors and pattern are gorgeous.
If I could keep my stubborn boobs in the cups, I wouldn't dream of parting with it, but it just doesn't suit me since I've got so much loose skin from weight loss. I think soft tissue may do just fine in this bra, provided that soft tissue is not paired with excessive amounts of loose skin.

Typical strap slippage.
Extra full to omega shape friendly, give or take for other fit factors.
Breasts are not compressed into totally flat disks in this, or forced to jut out unnaturally flattened at some idiotic angle, creating fucktons of quadding across the land.
If that sounds weird, don't worry about it. Those who can relate, rejoice.
I had expected a lot since I saw this bra. But when I got this, I was even not sure it fits or not. It squashes? flattenes? boobs a bit near the nipples having some gap at the same time. May be fits better tall rooted, firm and fot breasts, not my short rooted, soft and pendulous breasts. This reminds me of Panache Ariza because of the shape it gives (and the beuatiful embroidery too)
However the bra itself is just wonderful. It looks sturdy, beautiful and gives great support. The gore is very narrow. The bands fit like a typical ewa 80 /uk 34~36.
edit : I found the gore floating a bit. Yep. It is definitely too shallow for me.
I wish I understood why my breasts love the S and not the SM. I don't think it's just seamed vs. padding. Something is going on with the fundamental shape.
Ewa gets a lot of credit for her deep cups, and overall that's accurate, but I think compared to a bra with similar measurements (say, my 32FF Panache Jasmine, with the same cup width and depth but a taller gore), there is a...steeper cup? It's not exactly less projection right at the wire so much as a higher horizontal seam, so that more of the cup is "bottom" and less "top," which gives the illusion that my breasts aren't ...full enough on top to fill it. Except that's laughable if you look at literally ANY of my other bra photos.
This bra also lacks center fullness. As with Comexim plunges, my nipples are lying way closer to my sternum than the cup of the bra wants them to. But if I were to go up a cup size to get more depth, these straps would be off my shoulders, onto my upper arms.
The result? Simultaneous gaping and in-cup quad boob.
So while this seems to be the right SIZE for me (at this point in the arc of my shifting weight, sigh), it seems to be the wrong CUT for me.
CHPs continue to be my gold standard bra (though I'm once again between sizes). I am going to try an SF or BM next, once I scrape up the patience and funds. Read more 142 more words
Bought this bra in a sister size once it was already discontinued. Absolutely so in love with the delicate floral embroidery and satin bows... it's a nude bra worthy of a lovely woodland nymph https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The mix of caramel colors are neutral but oh so beautiful. The band is expectedly less firm than my usual 30, but otherwise it fits my shape really well.
