Bra Review: Cleo Marcie, 28FF – a summertime classic.

Cleo Marcie is a 3 part balconette bra by Panache that has been around for eons and been reviewed many times.  It’s generally the first bra recommended for full on top shapes or tall rooted breasts, and I am neither of those.  I am even-to-full on bottom, with very short roots.  But I have always loved the Marcie for it’s simplicity and rounded shape, and for the fact that it’s available in a lot of colors.  I recently acquired the summery yellow colorway, and while it’s not a perfect fit, it’s darn close and there’s still plenty to love about Marcie.

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak CHP Gazeta, 65F

For most of you reading this, the Gazeta needs no introduction.  Gazeta translates to “newspaper” and was a wildly popular bra by Ewa Michalak back when it was first released.  Despite several reviews stating the band runs tight and the bra overall was terribly uncomfortable, it remained popular due to its uniqueness.  Gazeta is a padded half cup made from a newspaper print fabric, with black piping, ruffles and little red hearts as accents.  I missed out on the original run of Gazeta, and it’s been discontinued for quite some time due to the apparent loss of the fabric source.  I

Bra Review: Claudette Dessous, 28G

Happy weekend lovelies!  Today I’m reviewing another UK bra I’ve found an acceptable fit in.  I’m happy to add it to my unlined bra collection, as summer is approaching and my padded bras will just be too freaking hot for our 100+ degree days and high humidity.  Claudette Dessous is available in a rainbow of colors, and mine is Sandstone and Navy from SS2013.  I’ve been told Claudette changes the fit of this bra about every season.  While I’ve never tried another color to personally speak to this, it’s a bit discouraging because depending on which Dessous you get your

Bikini Review: Comexim Pin Up Girl half cup, 60J

Swimsuit season is rapidly approaching us here in the United States, and as all small band/larger bust ladies know, bikinis are the ultimate nemesis.  I grew up insanely jealous of my girlfriends who could waltz into Target or wherever and pick up a cute triangle halter top bikini for $20.  I tried and tried, but my chest wasn’t having it.  I spent countless summers sad and deflated, falling out of my tops, tying them as tight as humanly possible and then lying perfectly still by the water, not daring to move and suffer a wardrobe malfunction.  Once I learned that

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak SM Summertime, 65FF

Happy Friday lovely readers!  Today I’m reviewing another SM style from Ewa Michalak.  It fits similarly to my SM Kusidelko, with a few notable differences.  Let’s jump right in with some pictures! Look at how pretty and summery it is!  The name is very fitting.  Worth noting:  I got this bra secondhand and the ivory bows that are usually on the straps are missing.  I love the floral embroidery and the colors used.  I was hoping it would function as a nude unlined bra, something my wardrobe is still conspicuously lacking, however the embroidery and pastel colors show through my

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak CH Cherry

CH Cherry is a brand new bra for Ewa Michalak and the first CH cut she has released in a long time.  This cut is slightly narrower and more projected than the CHP and while both work on me, I prefer the CH.  It’s a cut that’s in hot demand and for whatever reason, Ewa rarely/if ever makes them anymore.  Even by special request, she’s more apt to custom make a bra as a CHP than a CH.  While the differences are subtle in my size range, they’re enough to make me wish the CH style was in regular production. I’ve

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak SM Kusidelko, 65FF

Good morning!  The SM Kusidelko is a very sexy, unlined, nude and black illusion bra that I’ve had my eyes on for quite some time.  I was stalking a listing over at Bratabase for a couple of months, but couldn’t afford it and it finally sold from underneath my feet.  I was so sad.  Eventually I couldn’t help myself anymore and even though it’s a discontinued style, I asked Ewa if she could still make the bra for me in a 65FF.  They had enough fabric around and obliged, so I consider myself pretty lucky to have this baby. SM is

Bra Review: Comexim Luna, 60HH

As promised, today I am writing about the lovely Luna I was lucky enough to grab secondhand.  Comexim Luna is a long discontinued style, and looks exactly how its name implies.  Luna means “moon,” and this bra is very unique.  The moon print on the fabric is unlike any other bra I’ve ever seen!  It’s topped with an ivory lace trim and small, sweet bows.  It’s become one of my favorite bras, despite its less than perfect fit. From the front, all looks well.  Just look at that amazing moon print!!  Ahhh, I love it.  Seriously.  I also love the ivory

Bra Review: Comexim Elena half cup, 60HH

Well it’s about time I wrote another review!  Usually I am not absent for a month, but the holidays caught up with me.  Apologies to my lovely readers.  As for the bra: is there anything Comexim can’t do??  I think not.  Today’s gem is the Elena Half Cup, with a specific modification.  Typically Elena is made as a single seamed half cup pattern, which is clearly seen in the stock photos.  This cut doesn’t work well for my shape, so I asked the dear Anna if she could possibly make one in the 2 seam cut, so that the dimensions

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak CHP Groszki I Róże, 65F

Today’s review is another EM half cup.  The vertical seam pattern looks just like Comexim’s half cups and these narrow, projected 3 part half cups continue to work well for my shape.  I was super excited for the chance to get my hands on this set, as it’s gorgeous and been discontinued for quite some time.  This is the most unique bra I own to date.  I love the mint color and black and pink lace/flower accent, and I love that I was able to get the matching undies in my size.  Finally I have a matching set!  I’m not
