Ewa Michalak PL Zielony Pieprzyk in 65FF

Hi guys! I'm sure some of you may remember my review(s) of the Ewa Michalak S Syrena. The Syrena was my first dabble in Ewa Michalak. I loved the green with the navy lace and it's still one of my favourite bras to wear. Fast forward almost a year, and I see the S Zielony Pieprzyk in a newsletter Jaimie at Bra Obsessed sent out. Even though the base colors are the same as the Syrena, it has polka dots. So, you know, it was different enough for me to justify ordering. I thought it was a fitting way to end my first year in a relationship with Ewa Michalak. This model normally comes in the S style but I special ordered it in a PL, something that can be done with most Ewa bras either through Ewa directly or through a retailer like Bra Obsessed or Zathiya. I'm still digging my S models but I love the low gore and wires and most importantly the cleavage the PL gives me.

Some of Ewa's models come with the option for briefs or thongs, some briefs only, some thong only. I haven't asked her yet if she would make a thong into a brief or vice versa. This bra does come with brief only. It has elasticated leg holes otherwise I would have asked Ewa if she would accommodate a request for a thong. A brief without elastic legholes is gonna right up my butt anyway, might as well make it by design. The polka dot lace covers the cups up till the top seam where there is a pretty, chunky lace trim followed by bare cup. The seams are covered in black satin tape and there's a row of the floral lace on the wings of the cups followed by green satin tape. The band is black and the gore is see-through, creating a little peak-a-boo effect. The straps are my favorite kind with green satin tape scrunched up over them. This is of course fully adjustable, just takes a little patience (or, alternatively, sheer strength and will power). In the interest of full disclosure, I did photoshop these images but purely for purposes of color correction. I got as close as I could: my camera doesn't want to cooperate lately. I tried, you guys. I'm so sorry for the piss yellow walls. If I can remember how to selectively color balance I'll replace the photos.

This is the most accurate color wise. It's a little bluer in real life but here you can see the cup design and the low gore. This is without pads.

Without pads. You can see this model is a little rounder than the last few PLs I've tried. I'm okay with either shape. The polka dots on this cup are the perfect size between twee and obnoxious and you can see how the wing (as well as the gore) is made of green mesh backed by green.

Without pads. The cups fit perfectly without the pads. I get no quadding and a perfect shape as well as unmatched support. As usual, the gore is a soft tack but I find that to be more comfortable then an extremely hard tack anyway. The wires are nice and low on the sides and don't poke, harass, rub or otherwise harm my poor innocent armpits. The band is a little on the stretchy side for me, stretching to 30.5 inches. That's completely true to size and I don't find it riding up or too uncomfortable.

And this is what the bra looks like with pads in. I get touching cleavage as my boobs settle in. With the pads, however, there is not enough room for my center fullness so I get a touch of cleavage. I anticipated this since the PL cut is barely projected enough at the center for me anyway.

This photo is pretty true color wise as well. The gore has a little folded over fabric detail that's topped with a signature big floppy bow. I love this design so much. It's super comfortable and makes me feel super wonderful.

I ordered the matching briefs in a 38. They are beautiful (all of Ewa's coords are). I think they are relatively true to size, but they fit a little funky on me. I have a feeling that's because they're too 'tall' and hit my belly in an awkward spot, leading them to either fold or slouch down. They're still pretty comfy and not too full coverage which I appreciate. Best of all, they barely show or ride up over pants.

This bra is a classic beauty that I reach to again and again. What's not to love? It looks beautiful, fits beautifully, and makes me feel beautiful. That's a winner in my book.
