I'm finally able to write a review for this! Which is great, because it's just been sitting on my account for months, but I figured there's no sense in reviewing it based on a try-on. So, here we go.
For a strapless, it isn't bad. It's molded and really shallow at the wire as the pictures show. The material used to shape the cups is really stiff, it's soft inside, but the molding itself is almost Styrofoam like or cardboard. It's really odd to touch and makes it feel cheap almost. Like a pretend bra. It's weird. Despite being some weird thick material (I believe the other strapless was described ...as boob armor? Yeah, that's pretty accurate), I didn't find it terribly hot and sweaty. We've had massive amounts of humidity here with no rain and no breeze. It's gross and I'd rather be naked, but I was able to wear this a few times and not feel like I'm creating a swamp in my dress. The band material is the same silky smooth jersey used to make CH Toffik. It's really comfortable and soft. The wires are good, they do stretch with the bra causing the cups to become shallower than they already are. I don't think that's unusual for a strapless, and these wires are quite a bit softer than the ones Ewa normally uses. Technically, this is too small for me and the wires at the gore do not sit against my body. Right now I'm pleased with that (which is why I've been wearing it so much lately), I have a rib out and the no-contact is a nice relief since pressure causes some pain. The cups are pretty low profile, they don't peek over any of my shirts at all. Probably because they're too small, but it's a nice bonus.
Despite being too shallow for me and also too small, this is the only strapless bra I have ever had that I do not have to hike up a million times a day. I put it on in the morning and it stays there all day! It's actually really amazing to me especially since I've also been wearing an extender with it (remember, really grossly humid) making the band too big and it *still* doesn't move. For that alone I'm keeping it. Read more 271 more words
This is my first Ewa Michalak bra that I'm trying to find my true size. It's a fantastic bra but too bad it's too small for me.
PROs: - band that really tight and unstretchy that wont slip around even I jump or move around for the whole day. - The cups are made of a very stiff material that actually supported my breasts. - The center-gore is low hence it can wear as a plunge bra for deep V clothes. - Give a nice smooth profile under thin material clothing
CONs: - The silicon band makes my skin rushes red after long hour of wearing - Underwire are much wider compare to my other EM size 26F bras. - I don't know what's the cup material but my breasts sweat a lot after 2-3 hours of wearing the bra.
Expectedly, not at all a good fit on my projected, pendulous, asymmetric boobs, but passable enough to make the few dresses I need a strapless for wearable. It's super shallow at the bottom-- no way I can get it in my IMF, and I get that tell-tale too-shallow rib pain within a few minutes of putting it on. I do love the low gore because I find so many other full-busted strapless bras are too full coverage to wear with most necklines. It does provide a round, minimized shape that looks nice beneath clothes. Sigh. Strapless bras and I just can't get along, it seems!
This bra doesn't fit me. I have it in three cup size bigger than is my usual size because smaller size makes me a quadboobing. I didn't realise that bigger cups aren't a solution. Problem is that this cut doesn't fit me, cups are too close on top and I need open because I have tall roots. Because of the wrong size it's really uncomfortable to me. I would like to sell it and I'm going to add it as a listing.
30F/FF narrow and tall roots, projected, full on top
I have since learned that 65 bands from EM are too tight for me and this one was exceptionally tight, so much so that it was painful. This was also a cup too large for me as I fit best in 70E in this brand. The bottom of the cups are quite shallow and sloped, which was not a problem for me but may cause difficulties for women whose breasts have far more lower projection. Aside from these issues, this bra is a lifting champion as far as strapless bras go. In my right size I can picture this being a great strapless essential.
A pretty decent strapless bra. It's very minimal, which I like. I can wear it under a spaghetti strap tank without the bra showing, which is the point of a strapless! It's a little wide set for me, makes me look kind of broad, but this is a common problem of mine as I'm small around with a bigger cup size, plus I'm what I've read as egg shaped. But, as this is the best strapless bra I've found so far, it's going to be my main. It definitely stays up, no need to adjust every two minutes. I jumped and bent over and did jumping jacks and it stayed right where I had fastened it. The very stiff cups are a bit shallow, but the design seems to be made to push you up, without padding.
I think I am between cup sizes again, but I don't have a GG to compare it to, so I can't say for certain. This bra is a little incompatible with my shape, which is full in the centre, so I spill out a little bit/get some quadboob at times. Cups are quite shallow. Definitely minimizes. Not unwearable by any means.
This bra gives me an amazing lift, the color matches my skin, the bra stays in place and is low cut (wearable with all my clothes). I love it !
To be a totally perfect fit, I would need wires a bit wider and longer. And if I pull my shoulders behind me more than my natural posture, I get a little quadraboob on my bigger breast, but not much. I choosed to keep this bra even with theses fit issues, because I think a cup size more will gap, and this size is confotable, I can wear it a all day long.
Edit after a few wears : The band is super firm. At first, it is confortable, but after a few hours, it becomes constrictive. It can stretches up to 82cm, but feels smaller than all my other bras with the same stretched mesurment.
I am very surprised this Ewa Michalak strapless works for me. EM wires are famously narrow and their cups deep. However, in 30F (65F), it appears the cups are wider and shallower, at least in the Strapless Toffi. It is mercifully brief in its coverage. I finally have a strapless that will stay hidden beneath the skimpy clothing I need a strapless for. This abbreviated coverage contrasts strongly with similar sizes in the Wonderbra Strapless and the Gossard Strapless, which I've tried in several sizes.
The EM Strapless Toffi has stiff, moulded cups. I've had fit problems in stiff, moulded cups in some other bras, like the Fauve Rosa. ...However, the Toffi doesn't cover the huge amount of my chest that most moulded bras do.
The stiff cups and limited coverage work together to create a superbly uplifted, rounded, and cleavagey shape. I have difficulty achieving cleavage other than cakes on a plate because my boobs, while very close-set, are firm and have more fullness to the sides than the center gore. I'm still having trouble believing I've found a strapless that works for me. Read more 77 more words
