Ewa Michalak S Kleksik Bra 34KK/75KK

Shortly before Christmas, I placed an order with Polish lingerie brand Ewa Michalak as they were having a sale. I ordered as many bras as I could in my size (or sister sizes) as I was very short of bras that fitted properly. One of the bras I bought was the S Kleksik:

This bra appealed to me as it was navy blue, which is a great option as an alternative to black. I opted for the bra in my current Ewa Michalak size: 34KK/75KK. Unfortunately the matching navy briefs were not available, so I improvised by teaming the bra with the briefs from my Jagodzianki set, which is made from a similar navy coloured fabric.

In these photos I have teamed my lingerie with my black Prague Lady Microfiber Opaque Hold-ups from The Big Tights Company (it would have been the perfect match if they made them in navy, but seeing as they don’t black is the next best option) and black platform stiletto heels from Primark.

Ewa Michalak’s S bras are lightly padded balconettes. They are a great choice for women with softer breast tissue as they have a higher central gore than the PL style, meaning that the breast is more encapsulated within the cup and so there is less chance of breast spillage.

The S Kleksik is quite a simple-looking bra that is made from a soft satin-like plain navy fabric, and the inside of the bra’s cups are lined with a black cotton material. There is pretty navy lace along the bottom edge of the band to add a bit of interest, and there’s a large rose made out of pale pink ribbon on the central gore.

The S Kleksik is a lightly foam padded balconette bra with removable pads in the lower half of the cups. These pads are intended to help correct the appearance of asymmetrical breasts. Please note I am wearing the pads in these pictures as they offer a bit of additional stability to the cups, but they do make them a fraction too small for me so you can see a hint of quadboob in some of my photos. The cups are made from four part construction and therefore give an excellent shape and superb support to the breasts.

The 75/34 band runs rather tight, so as you can see I am wearing an extender in these photos. That said, I find I can take the extender off after a few hours’ wear, so the band is not overly tight. It fastens with three rows of three hooks and eyes. 

The straps are fully adjustable and have embellishments down the edges to stop the adjuster from moving with wear. I find them very comfortable, despite it looking like they may be digging into my shoulders in some of my photos. Believe me – I would not wear a bra that was uncomfortable, so please be assured that I do not find the straps a problem at all.

One of my favourite things about Ewa Michalak bras are the narrow underwires. The S Kleksik’s wires fit perfectly around my breast tissue and do not cut in at all. The central gore is also very narrow and it sits flat against my sternum. The wires do not run too high under my arms so they don’t dig in or cause irritation. The bra holds my breast tissue at the front of my body and gives me a fantastic rounded shape. As you can see from my photos, the bra gives me a great cleavage and my boobs quite happily stay in place all day without the need for readjusting.

I do like to have the matching bottoms with my bras but in this instance I think the Jagodzianki briefs work pretty well as the next best option. You can buy the Kleksik briefs here and the thong here.

If you are looking for a dark-coloured bra then the S Kleksik is a great alternative to black; I highly recommend it.

    Funny how a plain bra can look so sexy! But that’s Ewa Michalak for you – such a clever designer. I’ve got this bra and it’s one of my favourites.

    You wear it well as always but I've never been into navy underwear.. I kind of can't get past that whole school gym-knickers thing!!btw- It was me who posted a bit ago about squatting poses on blogs, it is something I'm aware of on shoots, it's actually not unusual for the model to have one pic where she crouches down. I guess it adds visual variety, plus it's useful to get more of an idea of what clothes will be like day-to-day when you wear them. I've often looked at myself straight on in the mirror and everything's in place, only to find that people tell me that while serving at the café I work at, an 'on the house' treat was served with the latte wen I bent over to set it on the table. Sorry if it sounds 'peculiar' to you. But it's not like I was asking you to touch your toes or anything!Belle x

      Ah, I get what you mean re the gym knickers. I had to wear red at one school and then maroon at the next! Not good. However these knickers are nothing like those and they are made from lovely soft materials and gorgeous lace, so for me at least there is no correlation.Thanks for explaining about the 'squat' pose you mentioned previously. Maybe it's something that happens on professional shoots – although I maintain that I have never, ever seen it myself – but I am not a model so such pictures will not appear here. By the way…I can very easily touch my toes 😉

    I seriously need to try this brand! Every time I see one of your reviews I'm like, yep gotta try them out. I always have trouble finding a bra where the central gore sits against my chest. As my breasts are so close together when I do find bras which do there isn't enough support in the cups. I may have to take a look at their website and take the plunge. Another great review Caroline and a gorgeous set, love the colours x

      Thank you for your lovely comment, Mayah. I think you would LOVE Ewa Michalak bras, so we definitely have to get you sorted! Try going to Bratabase and entering your measurements – you may even find some EMs in your size range for sale so that you can try them out. It really makes a huge difference to one's posture and even how you feel about yourself when you are wearing the right bra size so it is something worth taking the time to find out. x

      Fair enough; I think it's good to have a wide range of different lingerie options in my wardrobe as there is a time and a place for pretty much everything 🙂
