Having removable pads inside the lower half of the cups means this bra is ideal for anyone looking to resolve asymmetry. I removed the pads when trying on this bra and as it's technically too small for me I certainly won't be putting them back in again. You can see from one or two of the pics that the cups are definitely snug but the shape and uplift the bra gives me is truly second to none.
The straps are halfway adjustable and are similar in appearance to those on the PL Burgund. However I don't think these will go funny in the same way as they seem to have been constructed differently. The good news is that the straps have rings attaching them to the back band, so I have no worries of them twisting round and digging in/compromising the fit of the straps.
The band on this bra is quite stretchy. I went for the 34/75HH but have emailed Ewa today asking if it is possible to exchange for a 32/70J which I feel will serve me better in the long run. When I tried this bra on I went straight to the tightest row of hooks (there are 3 rows of 3 hooks) so I suppose it wouldn't be long before it felt too loose on me.
I am sorely tempted to get more than one of this bra. I love it that much. From its beautiful design and colour to the shape and uplift it gives me, I think this may well become my favourite Ewa Michalak bra yet.
