The Ewa Michalak PL Retro is a gorgeous basic but very beautiful bra.

It is black - plain black with no patterns or lace - but not just a regular, solid black. It has beige-coloured foam cups which are covered in a fine black mesh overlay, creating a sort of two-toned effect. It's hard to describe but the look is just great.
The straps are not overly stretchy, nor is the band. But the best news is that although the cups have softened up since I first got the bra, they have retained their shape completely and have not stretched, unlike some of the EM bras I own. I think the foam used is slightly thinner than all my other EMs; that and the fact they are only covered with the sheer mesh fabric means this bra adds less bulk to my boobs.
This bra is one I go to regularly when I want to wear something super comfortable and reliable. As it's black it goes with pretty much everything (including my big comfortable pants when it's that time to wear them!) and I don't have to worry about the colour or straps showing from underneath my clothes. It's a perfect lingerie drawer staple.
I didn't buy the matching thong originally but decided to get it with my recent order. It's really comfortable and very sexy - completely sheer! This means it doesn't hide any lumps and bumps but it does feel very special to wear something completely see through such as this.
So, this set is yet another hit by Ewa Michalak. It seems this brand cannot put a foot wrong.
