So... I think my life just changed forever. My 34J breasts are very soft, FOB, with lots of immediate projection and (I think) narrow roots. This is my first Polish bra. Everything about it is perfect. My breasts look round and up-front, yet somehow seem slightly minimized. No quadding. The wires are staying in my IMF (a first!), and the wire ends aren't stabbing me under the arm. Nothing hurts!
For me, the lace and seams are smooth enough that the SM Triumpf can serve as a T-shirt bra, but your mileage may vary.
For reference, *everything else* stabs my underarms, especially Cleo Lucy & similar... I have permanent darker coloration where wire ends have scarred me. The wires of Panache Jasmine, Envy, and Clara end up two full inches below my IMF within an hour. Curvy Kate's Ellace gives me horrifying in-cup quadding due to my soft tissue. Until today, my best fit was Cleo Hettie in 34J.
Amazing bra, my best fit ever! I never felt so sexy AND comfortable at the same time in a bra.
My shape: I have short roots, average to narrow width, close-set and center heavy breast, FOB or even (not sure avout that one). On my, this bra fits the same as 30GG - Cleo » Hettie Balconnet Bra (9011) , except it is lower cut.
The cups of this bra are made of beautiful lace. It is not too textured so it does not show too much under thin t-shirts. The cups are a perfect depth for me. It is quire rare that I find a bra ...with enough bottom and center projection!
The wires are narrow, in fact I never tought such narrow wires would fit me so well. They are flexible (maybe as flexible as Freya) and quire short. These two factors add a lot of comfort, no poking under my arms. The gore is lower than any balconette bra I know. I find it is a good mid-point between balconette and plunges. It gives a beautiful and natural looking clevage and a round shape.
The band is snug, but it looks like it will strech out after a couple of washes.
The straps are bulky...sad. They are also wide-set, however they do not cut under my arms.
This bra is amazingly comfortable, I got it NWT, but it feels as comfy as a bra that has been worn a lot. This is a big + for the sensitive person I am! Read more 147 more words
I took a chance on this one, since I'm newly obsessed with EM and my 75DD - Ewa Michalak » 3d Szykuś (423) is currently my favorite thing. The quality and details are of course awesome. The lace cup is a really pretty floral pattern that looks like it would be itchy, but it's actually really smooth and soft on the inside. I love the bows and the little crystal gem on the gore. The straps are wide-set but have the stretch I love. I found the 80 band comfortable - the band material has some stretch, but not too much. If my boobs ...were just a little bit bigger, I would probably love this bra. Unfortunately, the cups are just way too deep for me. I was almost able to fill out the cup on my larger side, but had some pretty serious gaping on my smaller side. I don't think I quite managed to fill out the bottom either. The gore tacks, but digs into my sternum. I love my 3d, but I don't think the Sm style is right for my shape. Read more 83 more words
Is a teensy bit large in the cup for me, causing the shape to be more pointy than round. Band is comfy and overall is a lovely bra.
Is beautifully cool to wear on hot days, but I found I had to adjust fairly often. Not sure what this means about the fit...... Argh. Wish there were a brick and mortar store so I could try Ewas on and nail down my actual size without so much expense!!! Would love some input from you seasoned ladies for a properly fitting bra newbie like myself!!
My shape: Projected, short rooted, even/functionally full on bottom, somewhat narrow, soft tissue.
This bra fits probably closer to a 30GG, or maybe a 30G if you have a lot of upper fullness.
I have major fit issues with this bra. The cups are simultaneously too large (can't fill the tops/major gapping), and too small (very shallow near the sides of the gore at the bottom). Definitely won't be keeping this one, sadly.
I ordered this because my correct size, 65H, is special order and I thought the sister size, not special order, might work instead. I was pleasantly surprised that the straps were narrower set than my 65H SM. The band was a bit big, as expected, but the cups were also a bit big, which was odd. I liked the narrower wires than the 65H, but it seemed like there was a bit less immediate projection. My centre fullness had the same issues with the bottom of the cup that I have in the 65H, but this is worse.
Otherwise, quality, shape, and fit are all standard and lovely! I was expecting the lace to be scratchy, but it totally isn't.
My fit needs: projected, immediately projected, slightly narrow, fob with tall roots (functionally even), very close set, very center full. From my first direct em purchase and it's a dud. It would be a good fit (narrow and projected with enough coverage) but I have some wrinkling at the bottom because it's not immediately projected enough for me.
The lace is a bit rough and not flexible, but if you get the size right it is a very beautiful bra. Great option with good projection and narrow wires. Will look for more Ewa Michalak options based on this one!
The band is tighter than for other bras I have this band size or even one size down for some bras. Glad I sized up for the band. Cup size though is a bit smaller, so I would not have needed to size down for the cup, but still fits ok.
During my quest for an unlined, beige-colored bra, I happened upon a bratabase listing for the Sm Triumf in a 65F. I was a little concerned about the sizing -- I had this weird idea that Ewa Michalak would be a brand for which sizing would be difficult to figure out. The measurements looked good, of course, but I like a FIRM 28 band, and I was hesitant to take the plunge on a 65 band when my best-fitting bras are 60HH Comexims.
People say to size up in the band for Ewa Michalak. At the very least, for this bra, it holds true.
I ...should mention that the fit is not PERFECT perfect -- I have a little bit of wrinkling at the top of the left cup, and the straps are SO LONG that I have to shorten this all of the way (although, full disclosure, I'm kind of short, so this might be a selling point for someone taller than me). All-in-all, though, this is a gorgeous bra that fits incredibly well and is exactly what I was looking for! Read more 78 more words
