Ewa Michalak SM Cukiereczek 65FF

Like the lovely SM Summer Time (review is coming up-I started writing one but it disappeared because I am technologically impaired), I've wanted the SM Cukiereczek since I saw it. It's sheer, it's got giant bows and beautiful pink flower embroider. What's not to love? I am a member of the Facebook group "Clothes for Boobs Buy/Sell/Chat/Share Page" and I saw a member had posted a picture of an HM Cukiereczek back in December or so of 2015. It was new with tags and I knew it was a long shot but I asked if it was still available. It was(!) so I went ahead and contacted the seller to purchase it. To make a long story short, unfortunately the seller could not find this new with tags HM Cukiereczek but she had a practically brand new Cukiereczek in the SM style and would I like that instead? I agreed because any Cukiereczek is better then none. I am glad I was able to get the SM instead of the HM style (although I would like to try it) because after reading reviews on other HMs and this version I saw that the gores tended to be higher than usually works for me. I would have been wicked bummed if this bra didn't fit me but luckily it does! It's a perfect fit and in near perfect quality, besides some loose threads, some pen marks, and a couple pulled hooks that took a few minutes to fix.

I love the SM style so much you guys. The SM is the unlined version of the padded S style which is a balconette. This one is slightly different then the SM Summer Time I own in very important to me ways. Mainly the straps: on my SM Summer Time, the straps are awful and stretchy and thin. They bite me because of how thin they are, but because they're so stretchy I have to adjust them all the way short and even then they're almost too short. On the Cukiereczek, the straps are nice and wide. They have little frills on the edges so they don't slip. The adjusters are metal and a little lighter than the tan of the straps. The band is really slim where it hooks and I wish it was just a tad wider. The material for the band is really satiny and sooo lovely. It is similar in feel to that of my CHP Summer Time band. There is a double layer of fabric on the wings and gore. The wires are the perfect width for me. They feel too narrow when I put my breasts into the cups as I'm putting it on but when I fasten the band they stretch to fit my roots perfectly. The wires are short and overlap at the gore making it very narrow. It is also rather low. The construction of the cups is absolutely brilliant: it is seamed, but the seam work is done on the inside so it gives a very smooth impression under clothes. I hear that the Wanilla is done the same way and I hope to confirm it any day now! The colours in these photos are pretty true to life. I was able to catch the last of the daylight.

I swear the bra does not make me look lopsided. It's just the photo, but I can't find what happened to the others and the light is gone. I get very subtle cleavage in this. I don't mind this at all and it's perfect for tank tops or other lower cut tops hat get a lot of wear in the summer months. The bows end up really high on my shoulders with how high I have to shorten the straps. I wish they were smaller although they don't appear to show under clothes. I forgot to mention this on my CHP Summer Time review but Ewa's team does an incredible job with pattern matching. On both bras the embroidery is perfectly mirror image to the other side.

I love the shape the SMs give. Uplifted, almost round but with a lovely perky apex. It is maybe a smidge flattening to my upper tissue on my larger side but it's not too noticeable. Do not let those bulges alarm you. I was cursed with prominent tails of spences (tails of spence? tail of spenci?) especially on my larger side. 

So nice I had to show it twice! You can see the slight flattening I mentioned in the bottom picture. The band is nice and wide but the wires and wings are low enough to stay out of my armpit. The straps are wideset as is my usual complaint but they don't really bother me.

The back is a boring tan. I wish there were some of the flowers or something but we can't have everything.

Here's a close-up of the clever strap placement (and embroidery). Instead of being attached directly to the top of the cup it's attached to a triangle piece instead. I am not 100% sure so don't quote me on this but I think that this is to help distribute the weight. It also provides a nice appearance in my opinion.

How it looks under a cheapo Walmart shirt. I want to say that that is an embroidered flower and not my nipple on the lighter side but I'm honestly not sure. I would assume flower since they are bright pink and the shirt is thin. The seams are relatively hidden but the embroidery is not.

Lovely shape again. Projected for sure. It's more of a front and center than out to the sides.

And a close up. Even though it's heavily embroidered I'm really happy with how much it hides. This shirt is pretty thin so I think I'd have even less of a problem in one of my regular shirts.

I really really love the SM style from Ewa Michalak. It's so sheer and perfect for summer. My next SM will be the Bra Obsessed exclusive Wanilla and I can't wait. This Cukiereczek is no longer available from Ewa Michalak's website but you might get lucky somewhere else. If you are looking to order directly, Ewa has plenty of SM styles available here.


  1. LOVE the embroidery! This looks lovely!

    1. Thanks! It's the same pattern as the Summer Time embroidery-only the colour schemes are different. Definitely a bra worth having.
