This is one of two bras that I got from another seller...she was offering both at extremely reasonable prices because they were heavily used, and this one she actually refunded some of my money as she noticed a bit more wear on the band than originally thought...so that was very nice. I opted for this one because I’d had no experience with this cut before, and there were a few SMs in the listings in 70E that I was interested in, but I had been a bit worried about the cup depth. And I was right to be. It’s a little bit small. This bra is borderline too ... small for me. Especially pre-period aka high tide.
The black lace is beautiful but I feel like maybe it’s not super soft.. it’s not scratchy or anything, but it’s thicker and firmer than I was expecting. The band on this one is shot, so I can’t really comment on it, but I gather from the visible wear that it was probably a stretchy knitwear one. The button bow at the gore and straps are cute, but I think that the strap ones are a little annoying as they don’t tend to lie flat and can poke out of tanks and camisoles.
The shape from the front is lovely and I appreciate the lower neckline and gore. I also still have a fair amount of cleavage in the bra, even though it’s not a plunge. The side shape is ok...you can see the slight spilling and slight upside down 7 shape, and in both front and side views, you can see the wrinkles at the wire. Based on my separate post about this bra and the wrinkles, it’s possible it’s just too shallow, although I do have wire marks lining up with my roots pretty well, but it’s possible that it is from being a little smaller than I need and it’s shape on me. It’s a looser more natural but still somewhat rounded, I think.
As is quite common with Ewas, and small bands in particular, I find that the straps are a bit too wide for me, but they are on the edge of my comfort zone. I’d definitely like to see straps be less wide set in her bras.
Aside from the minor issues with the fit, I’ll hold on to this bra for a bit because it’s almost a good fit and I got it at a stellar price.
For my shape, narrowish and tallish roots that are soft, deflated, and pendulous which push me towards functionally short and even to full on bottom, this style sort of works. It’s not projected at the wire enough, though were I in a 65FF, I might feel like the apex depth is ok (and immediate depth might be better). It’s hard to tell in bras that don’t quite bit though. I’ve got my sights set on some BMs to try when I have enough money to buy one as I think I might have better luck with it than the SM.
I’m happy that I tried this, and it was a valuable purchase in my ongoing quest to learn more about Ewa Michalak bras by experience. I’m not sure if I will try it in a cup size up or not, but it’s a possibility.
