I’ve been looking forward to ordering a few Ewa Michalak bras for some time now. Somehow, though, it escaped my notice that the non-padded bra styles don’t come in my size 😦 This is a big letdown for me: I really, really, really, really prefer unpadded bras.
I know some people say that padded cups don’t add bulk. But when I went from a Le Mystere Tisha bra to an Empreinte Zoe, I went down a whole shirt size. I saw the difference and also felt much lighter and more free. Effuniak cups are, at least, much thinner than most padded or contour cups, and they are seamed, so I can expect good support. Still, I am deeply disappointed.
I am also a little concerned because I am have been scanning through photos on Balkonetka, and often very large breasts do not seem well-supported in Effuniak bras. I am seeing a lot of low breasts, but I am also seeing a lot of women in what appear to be the wrong sized bra.
I wonder f the nature of purchasing from Effuniak makes people more likely to keep a bra that doesn’t really fit? After all, we have the wait, and the anticipation, and if it doesn’t fit, a potential wait of more and more months. I think some people might decide to keep their hard-won bra, even if it’s a bit big.
In any case, I will be ordering a few bras just as soon as I can figureout my size. Stay tuned!
