Bra Review: Ewa Michalak Mleczny Strapless, 65G

My neverending search for the perfect – nay, wearable – strapless has led me to the Mleczny by EM.  I bought this secondhand on r/braswap.  Here’s the rundown on strapless bras: by design, they need to be wide and shallow.  Why?  Well, 80% of your bra’s support indeed needs to come from the band.  But imagine taking a narrow, projected bra and removing the straps.  Unless those cups are made of steel, they aren’t going to stay up.  Narrow projected bras bring your breasts in from the sides and out in front of your body.  Without straps to hold the tops

Bra Review: Comexim Veronique half cup, 60HH

Today I have another Comexim half cup to review, and this time it’s the cute and girly Veronique.  Veronique is offered on the website as a plunge, but Anna is aware of my half cup obsession lately and made Veronique as a half cup.  Interestingly enough, this is a single half cup construction, which is how Victoria is marketed and what I thought I’d be getting with Victoria.  It’s probably better that I didn’t, because Veronique – as sweet as she is – doesn’t quite work for me.  It’s possible it’s related to the cut, so let’s explore why. From

Bra Review: Comexim Victoria Half Cup, 60HH

Look at me go – I changed my background for the next few posts!  I’m winning in life right now.  Today’s review is a lovely new beige-and-navy-lace Comexim design, and mine is a half cup.  Victoria can also be made in a plunge, if you request when you order. Originally I thought Victoria was supposed to be a single-seamed half cup, but mine arrived and is a 2 part cup cut identically to my Sonia.  I ordered Victoria one cup size smaller based on how wide and roomy the Sonia is on me.  This was a good decision.  Victoria is a win

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 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: 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
