Bra Review: Ewa Michalak CH Onyks, 65F

Today I’m reviewing the 4th and final Ewa Michalak CH/CHP I’ve been able to try on so far.  That is, until my CHP Groszki I Róże gets here next week 😉 On display today is a 65F CH Onyks.  It’s a solid black bra with completely convertible straps, allowing it to be worn cross back and strapless.  I was excited to get my hands on this one because despite my massive bra collection, I do not own a single solid black bra!  Let’s take a look at her, shall we? From the front – not too bad!  I like the button

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak CHP Lawenda, 65F

Oh, my, goodness.  This bra is b-e-a-utiful and I’m so happy I stumbled across it secondhand, in pristine condition.  I’m in love with it for many reasons, but I just have to point out that it’s purple!!  If you’ve read my blog at all, you’ll know I’m a big sucker for purple.  This is the 3rd purple bra I’ve reviewed.  I no longer own the other two because I’ve gotten exceedingly picky about fit, so of course I had to remedy that.  Along came the Lawenda.  Enough chatter, let’s get to her. Just, wow!  First of all, I’m going to point out

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak CHP Stalówka, 65F

So today’s review is another EM, and a lovely gray half cup at that.  This was graciously loaned to me by a friend, and I didn’t have time to take my usual studio pictures for this review before I needed to send it back.  So, you’ll have to pardon my kitchen in the background.  But I wanted to compare and contrast this bra to my previous CH Biszkopty review, as it is a slightly different cut and one cup size smaller. Well now, isn’t she lovely!  I’ve always wanted a gray bra.  The vertical seamed construction is identical, but the

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak CH Biszkopty, 55GG (altered)

Today I’m changing brands!  I’ve discovered a new half cup style, and I really like it.  Ewa Michalak (EH-vah mee-HAHL-ack, in case you were wondering how to say it) is the other major player in the Polish bra scene.  I had never tried any EM bras due to the fact that in my size range, their cups tend to measure wider than I need.  But I got my hands on a couple of CH cut bras, and am pleasantly surprised.  The CH cut is Ewa’s narrowest, most projected padded half cup style.  It is discontinued so the bras I manage to acquire and

Bra Review: Curvy Kate Jewel 28FF

Switching gears today to my latest unlined acquisition.  I’m a sucker for purple and have long thought this bra was very beautiful, but Curvy Kate and I don’t always get along, shapewise.  Their bras in the past have been quite wide and shallow.  But Jewel is a somewhat newer style for them, and after reading enough reviews and checking measurements on Bratabase I decided she might be worth a shot and Amazon had the last one in a size that may work for me.  So, what’s a girl to do? Try it, of course!!  Ok, so I have my Bardot in

Bra Review: Comexim Brigitte 60HH, and a word about body acceptance

Friendly reminder before I get too far into this review – you can always click on the pictures in my post to make them larger and see more detail 🙂 Comexim Brigitte is a gorgeous pale pink and black bra that has been around for a little while now, and I’ve loved her since I first laid eyes on her many months ago.  I needed her in my life.  This is my kind of girly bra.  I’m not a sucker for pink, but this is pink done right.  This is subtle pink, and the intricate black damask pattern adds a hint

Bra Review: Comexim Sonia half cup, 60J

Some of my fellow bra-fanatics may be aware that my beloved Comexim has come out with 4 new styles for this fall season!  Exciting times ahead!  I instantly fell in love with the navy eyelash lace pattern and the peach-and-gray lace pattern.  Recently, I got my hands on the peach and gray, named Sonia, and it is just as beautiful in person as I expected! Just look at her <3 First of all, the color is fantastic on my naturally warm-toned skin.  The peach is much more subtle than I expected, and incredibly, this bra works as a nude on me.

Bra Review: Cleo Lily 28FF, Parrot print

Today we’re going to take a brief look at one of my favorite bras to date, the parrot-printed colorway of Cleo’s Lily.  Much of what I previously wrote in my Aqua Lily 30FF review can be repeated here, so I won’t bore you with the same information.  But there’s a very important note I want to make here:  Lily was manufactured in 4 colorways – Aqua/Pink, Magenta/Orange, Parrot Print, and Swan Print.  The printed styles of Lily run bigger than the solid styles, by almost an entire cup volume.  I would say, from experience, Parrot and Swan run 3/4 cup bigger than

Bra Review: Freya Phoebe, 28FF

Look at me go, 2 reviews in one day.  And it’s another Freya for you!  Now we’re looking at the Freya Phoebe.  I’m assuming it is an older style for Freya and I could find very little information on it.  But I was on the hunt for a nude unlined bra, it was on eBay, so I took a shot.  You can still find a few Phoebes left for yourself! Not too bad!!  The color nude is a pretty close match to my skin, which I appreciate because most nude bras are too pale and pink-toned for me.  I went

Bra Review: Freya Arabella, 28FF

So I’ve been a little obsessed with the aesthetics of this bra ever since I discovered its existence.  Most Freyas I have tried have given me a pointy shape and the “Freya pucker” at the top of the cup, where the bra seems to ask for some tissue I just don’t have.  But when I came across this beauty on Reddit’s Bra Swap sub, for a very reasonable price, I couldn’t help myself.  It is pre-owned and shows some signs of wear, but still in good shape overall.  Enough rambling, let’s take a look at her. Just…. wow.  This is
