Ewa Michalak {custom} M Opium 70D

This is the 3rd bra I’ve had in the opium wash. Sadly, this one didn’t work out for me like the CHP, and PL.

Originally I was going to order this from Aisha at Zathiya, in exchange for the opium PL that didn’t work. However Aisha didn’t get a response from Ewa about this bra, until 2 weeks later. When Aisha emailed me to let me know that Ewa still hadn’t responded to that particular email, she suggested that I email Ewa. The email was to inquire as to whether the opium bra could be made in M cut. Ewa responded to my email literally in 5 minutes. However, at that time I had an order that I just placed, so Ewa said she would add it to that order. So instead of doing an exchange to Zathiya, I ended up doing  return.

This is going to be a quick review, since this bra doesn’t fit. In a nutshell it is overall too small.


With the other opium bras, I bought a 65 band, but since this was a different cut, and I know 70D works in the M, that’s the size I went with. Unfortunately, the band only stretched to 25.5 inches. Stretching the band beyond that caused the wires  to distort. I personally would consider this band as running 2 sizes small– it’s a 70 band. but only stretches as much as a 60 band would. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this, but I consider my breasts to be low set. This was realized early on in my abtf journey, when I tried on a 30D Cleo bra, and the straps were adjusted at their longest, and were still too tight.


Surprisingly, with the straps adjusted all the way, and were still too short for me. I adjusted the straps as long as they could go, and they still felt really tight.


The boob closest to the camera is my smaller side.

The cups were also too small. Without the pads, I was almost/somewhat quadding. Even on my smaller breast. The height of the cup was only 4.75 inches. Every M bra I’ve owned has been 5 inches in cup height (the Roma & the 65DD Chaerek measure 5.1 inches). So this was 1/4 an inch too low. When 5 inches is ‘low’ that 1/4 inch makes a big difference.


For whatever reason, the pads from this bra are smaller than the normal M pads (which are the size I’ve gotten with most Ewa bras). I can’t say whether the smaller size makes a difference with the look or feel, because I don’t wear the pads.

If it was just the band that was too short, I would have decided to keep it, but it is just too small for me.


Update- 1/20/2017

I emailed Ewa about the band being too small, and she told me to return it for a replacement. She also let me know that I could get a refund for the return shipping via PayPal. I already knew this, but I thought it was nice of her to tell me. I sent the bra back (via first class for $21) Dec 16th, it was delivered Dec 19th. I emailed Ewa to see if they have received it. I wasn’t expecting it to have been processed at that point, but I wanted to let them know that it was delivered. I didn’t want it to get misplaced, with the holidays around the corner and all. Also, when I returned the bra I didn’t include any of the paperwork because my niece ripped it up. (Literally the only time I needed to return something the receipt got messed up. Meanwhile I still have the receipt from my first Ewa purchase) I also initially emailed Ewa about the bra not fitting with a different email address than I normally use (but I assume I’m the only person the ordered an M Opium). Anyway, Ewa emailed me back to let me know they received it and the replacement had been sent out, and they were giving me a store credit for my troubles.

I got the bra a little over 2 weeks later. I wore the bra twice, and for the most part, I didn’t have any complaints about the fit.

The first time I wore it, when I went to take it off to try some bras on, I noticed that on the left side the ring (connecting the back of the strap to the band) had pressed against my skin, and did hurt (once I took the bra off- before I took it off there wasn’t any pain).

The second time I wore it towards the end of the night, the bottom of the band felt too tight, on the right side. On the ‘new’ bra, the band stretches to 27 inches (unstretched its 22.25 inches). The original bra was 22 inches unstretched, and stretched to 25.5 inches (on a 70 band!). As much as I love the M cut, I keep buying 70 bands because they don’t really stretch beyond 28 inches.


When I initially put the bra on, I can feel the straps (like it’s too wideset), but I can’t feel it afterwards.  The straps are the same, I have them adjusted all the way. I think because they are thick, like the regular opium straps I have to adjust them all the way. (I have the straps on the M czekolada adjusted all the way also, and those straps are thick like the BM Naomi). I do wish that they’d completely,remade the bra, but that was probably asking too much. Plus Ewa didn’t know that the straps were too short, I didn’t mention it in the original email. I’m thinking what they did was literally just take off the band, and replace it with another band.


The shorts

I actually wore the shorts, with the bra. The shorts are cute, but I wish I’d ask for briefs or a thong. The only issue I had with the shorts, were that the bows on the front were being pressed under my scrub pants. The shorts didn’t seem to leave panty lines under my jeans.



I love the Opium color. I wish the band was made, like an inch longer,  but the band currently works. I don’t think I need an extender, since the band didn’t bother me until over 12 hours after putting it on. The straps could be longer, but I’m not got to alter them. I may ask Ewa if I can get a different bottom made in the future (now that I’m into matching bra and panties, I can see why some women buy 2 pairs of bottoms.)

Zathiya Exclusive Comexim Annika 3HC 65G

The Comexim Annika bra is an exclusive to Zathiya, that is, you can only buy it from them. When I first saw this bra, I knew I had to have it. It’s a brown bra, it will most certainly function as a nude for me, even though st somewhat darker than my skin.

The Annika bra was sold as both a plunge and a 3HC (3 piece half cup). It also come with a copper colored ribbon along the top of the cup as well as a copper bow at the gore. Truth be told, I didn’t care for the copper color, that would take away from the ‘nudeness’ of it. So when I decided to order it from Zathiya, I asked for there to be no bow, or ribbon at the top, as well as a 1cm reduction of the cup and gore *if it could be done*. Aisha responded that I could have the bra without the upper ribbon, but I had to have a bow. She said they were able to put a brown bow, instead of copper. At the time I wasn’t happy that I had to have a bow at the gore, but I’ve since received a few bras without the bow, and the bow does add “a little something” to it (and I will not be requesting any bras without the bow at the gore anymore)

When I confirmed with Aisha that I wanted the bra, I had to put down a 25% deposit, which came to about $12.75, this was excluding shipping. When the bra was received my Aisha, she sent me an invoice for the rest and the shipping (~$4). When the invoice was paid, the bra was shipped to me. The transaction went through without a hitch. Ordinarily I don’t order from Zathiya (or braobsessed), unless they have something exclusive that I want, simply because both companies rarely have anything in my size in stock. Both companies seem more aimed towards bigger cup sizes.


The band looks like it’s riding up in the profile pics, because it is. For the longest time I wore the bra with the straps adjusted to a certain level, but the last time I wore it, they felt too tight, so I loosened them. The band does stretch to almost 30 inches, essentially making it too big because my snug underbust is 28.5 inches. I don’t feel the band move when I wear this bra.


Fit wise, I think the cups are perfect. The width is 5.25 inches, and the depth is 8.25 inches. The cup heigh is 5.25, so it’s not too tall, and not too low. I do get ‘cakes on a plate’ cleavage in this bra (and pretty much all of my Comexim 3HCs.)


I’ve worn this bra a lot. I am now noticing that the tops of the cups are curved a little bit, but that is most likely due to the fact that there’s no ribbon at the top. It does bother me, because it is noticeable through shirts.


The straps were really hard to adjust. I had to use a safety pin to be able to adjust it. I don’t believe the straps have been moved in, since it wasn’t an alteration I asked for, but they don’t seem to be too wide set.


Backseam ‘Peach’ set Part 2

You can find the original set here.

So after the first set didn’t work out, I emailed Alena letting her know the top was too big, and that the bottoms were a little too big in the upper back area.

She emailed me back, with this picture and asked for measurements for 1, 2, 4, and 6. I emailed her back giving her those measurements, as well as the cup depth and width of my yellow Cleo Marcie (since it was my best fitting bra at the time). The bra and panty were sent out at no charge, since the original set didn’t fit.

When I received this set, I could see that it was different. I’ll get into that below.


The cups were definitely smaller. The cups were perfect. (But today when my breasts are apparently more FOT than normal, I’m getting some cutting in, not quite quadding.) The depth of the cups is ~7.75 inches. There is good depth at the wire. The sides of the cup come up high.

The wires are very soft and seem to stretch the cups when worn. So the width of the cup (5 inches) measures okay, but widens when stretched. There is some creaking when I press down on the wires.


The straps are a little thinner (.375 inches- .95 cm), and are attached with an O ring. The straps are wideset, but I think because they’re so thin, they don’t bother me. I haven’t actually worn this bra, but just from having it on right now, there’s no irritation whatsoever.


The closure on the band is darker than the bra (the original set had a closure that was an even match the the bra). The band is firm. The band stretches to 26.5 inches. The boning on the side of the band is a little pokey at the bottom.

This set came with the same bottom as the first set, and and extra bikini bottom.

High waist bottoms

These are definitely cut smaller than the original pair. They’re not too tight that they’re uncomfortable, however when I first put the, on I did hear the sound of thread popping. I only needed the back part to be taken in, but I don’t think I communicated that correctly to Alena. I love how the lower half looks on this piece. I think I’m too short &I don’t have enough definition in my waist to make high waisted anything to work. The top of these hit right where my waist goes in, but I don’t think they look right on me, because it’s right where my ribs are. If I were taller this would probably look better.


Low rise briefs

The briefs are really small. They cut in at the leg opening, and on my butt. I pulled the panties up for the pics, but they don’t really come that high, the top is barely above my butt crack. 😂 I won’t be wearing these because they aren’t comfortable.


I would defintely recommend buying from Alena if you’re looking to try a custom set from an indie company. It’s not cheap, but the materials make it worth the money, as does the labor, and the fact that she will try to make a set that works for you.

Freya Flourish longline 28F


I bought this after buying the parade longline, and the hopscotch longline. The hopscotch longline fits okay, but the band is too big, so when I saw this pop up on bratabase in a sister size to the hopscotch (30E), I jumped on it.

This isn’t a bra that I can say I was really interested in. I more or less wanted to try it for the size. Plus I like longlines.


I only ended up wearing this bra for around 3 hours, because the bottom of the band felt very tight on my skin. It was very uncomfortable. Luckily for me, I just so happened to be at home, so I could change before going out. To comfortably wear this, I’d need an extender. The front of the band also flips up easily.


Currently I am slightly quadding, but it may be from the bottom of the bra being too shallow at the wire. There’s almost a fingers worth of space there. The cups are also too wide. Much like the Freya fancies longline, this may be an issue of pliable wires, because the width of the cup is 5 inches (normally perfect for me). The cups run small, the depth of the cup is 8.5 inches, which is the depth of 28E/30DD.



The straps are so wideset. 😣 I rarely have the issue with straps being too wideset, but it was noticeable on this bra. It wasn’t unwearable, but it wasn’t 100% comfortable either.


The gore was too wide. It was sitting on breast tissue.

Do you own this bra or any other Freya Longline? What are your thoughts?

Freya Parade Longline 30D

This will be a short review, because I didn’t keep the bra, because it was obviously the wrong size.



As much as I want to say I bought this early in my fitting journey, I didn’t. According to bratabase, I added this bra back in January of this year (2016), so it was at least 6 months into my journey-enough to know 30D wasn’t going to work. I think part of the reason I bought this was because I’d tried on the Freya instinct half cup in size 28E, and it was too open for me (at the time. I think if I had it now, it would fit).


The cups were ridiculously small on me. There was plenty of side boob, and quad boob. The width of the cup was 4.5 inches, and the depth was 7.4 inches, so, half an inch too narrow, and about 1 inch too shallow. I believe at this time cup height was not a measurement on bratabase, but it would have been too short for me as well. My nipples were right at the top, but swooped back in.


The gore doesn’t tack, and is nowhere near tacking. At 1 inch wide, the gore would have been too wide for my close set breasts, so f it did tack, it would be sitting on breast tissue.


I don’t have any pictures of the back of the bra, but I put that the band rode up. The band stretched to 31 inches, so it was about 2.5 inches (currently), – 3 inches (back then) too big.



This bra is is very cute (just not on me), so I am definitely thinking about getting it in the correct size.


Have you tried on this bra? What did you think?

Ewa Michalak PL Opium 65E

This is part 2 of my Opium series, you can find part one (CHP) here, and part three (M) coming soon.

For this bra, I decided to go with Aisha from Zathiya ( I think it ended up being cheaper ordering from Zathiya, than directly from Ewa). For this particular order all I did was email Aisha, and tell her I wanted the Opium bra made into PL cut, since CHP has wires that are too hard for me. I asked her if I needed to leave a deposit, because that’s what I had to do when I ordered a custom Comexim. She said leaving a deposit wasn’t necessary. When the bra arrived to Aisha from Ewa, she sent me an invoice (I had asked to purchase something else that was in stock on her site, and she added that to the order)

When I received the bra, I wasn’t in love with it. As we’ll see below: (This review will be short, because I only tried the bra on twice, once when I first got it, and then again to take pics)



The main thing I didn’t like about this bra was the way the cups looked/fit. The depth of the cup was 8.5 inches, and the width was 5 inches, so it was within my range. This was the same size as the other PLs that I own, but the shape that it gave me wasn’t very nice. One thing, is that the apex of the bra was a lot higher than where my nipples are. I’d say it was off by around an inch or so- as in my nipples were lower, and more centered than the apex of the bra. The shape of the bra was relatively pointy. I do wonder if it was because my nipples weren’t close to the apex of the bra. But even so, the bottom of the cup didn’t have a curve to it the way my older Ewas do. It kind of went up like this: /   So this bra seemed shallow at the bottom (my 65E fairytale also fit the same, but that was also too big). When I emailed Aisha she told me if I sized down there woud be even less depth at the wire(something I didn’t even think about). So I opted to get this bra made in the M cut, since it works so well for me.



Please ignore the unevenness of the straps

The band stretched to 29 inches, and I don’t recall it feeling loose, Although it does look like its riding up in some of the pics.


The straps felt okay, from what I remember, but they do look like they’re wideset


The gore was nice and low, at 1.75 inches ( cm)


Freya Fancies longline 28E chilli

I decided I wanted this bra after I saw a few reviews of it. Granted, neither review put this bra in the bet light, but it’s red, and its a longline. So I “needed” it. My review will be similar to theirs, but from the prospective of someone that’s FOT (full on top)/has tall roots. The other reviews were also on this red color. I think the black is cute too, but for some reason, the white version doesn’t do anything for me.

Often times when I’m bored, I’ll search for bras, just to look. And when I become fixated on a bra, I’ll google it often, which is what I did with this bra. It seems to be $60 on just about every website, so when I saw it on amazon for $35, I jumped on it. The other reviews I read mentioned going down a cup size, but on amazon the 28DD was $60, and the 28E was $35, so I went with the 28E. The very next day after I ordered the bra, it was $36 on Bare Necessities. I did debate about whether or not to order the 28DD. I knew if I ordered it, one of them would have to get returned, and I try to cut down on the returns I need to do, so I stuck with the 28E from amazon, and prayed that it fit.

I had to iron the cups to get the creasing out, and it didn’t come out completely.

The bra came in 2 days, and much to my dismay, the bra was folded in half, and since it was packaged in a thin envelope, the cups were crushed.


Since I use my brother’s amazon prime account, I had him email Amazon to see what could be done. They originally offered a 20% refund, or a replacement. I opted for a replacement, but when my brother tried to follow the steps to get a replacement, there was only an option for a refund. I didn’t want a refund, so I decided to call about it. When I called, the woman was only able to offer me a refund since the only other available bra in that size was from the UK, and $60. I had to ask if there was some sort of partial refund I could get, since I really wanted the bra, and I was offered $10. With the $10 refund, it brought the price down to $25, so that was good enough for me, since I haven’t seen it for that cheap anywhere.

Was originally going to review this with the wires replaced, but they were too hard, so this is a review of the bra as I received it.

From the front, the bra looks really nice. From an angle the bra still looks nice. But from the side this bra doesn’t look good.


The cups are very lightly lined. They’re not thin enough to be unlined, but they’re not thick enough that I’d call it padded. (If it was unlined, it being folded the way it was from Amazon wouldn’t have been an issue). Although the cup has 4 parts, it doesn’t give a good shape. I think the shape would be considered “upside down seven”. There is no uplift with this bra. I *think* there may be good projection at the wire with this bra, but because the wires are so wide, and the cups were creased, there’s some folding of the cups.

In some of the other reviews it was recommended(?) to size down, but I’m glad I didn’t. My tall roots/FOT-ness definitely wouldn’t work in a size down. A size down would be too small overall actually. I don’t get any quadding, nor is there any cutting in. So IF you want to try this bra, and you’re FOT and/or have tall roots, stay your size, don’t size down. If you are FOB/have short roots, then you can probably size down.


The wires on this bra are extremely soft and pliable. Initially I thought they were plastic, but when I took them out of the casing I saw that they were metal, but very thin. Because the wires are so thin an pliable,  when you’re wearing the bra the wires distort, which is something mentioned in the other reviews (they said once putting the bra on the cups were wide, even though the measure narrow).  When worn the wires go very far back. I did swap the wires out for some wires I got from Sweet cup bra company, but within seconds of putting the bra on, I could feel they were too heavy (at least for this bra. The actual width of the wires/cup is 4.5, which is really .5 an inch smaller what I prefer, but as you can see above, it stretches a good amount.

The wire on the right is from Sweet cup; the wire on the left is the fancies wire. Notice the fancies wire is almost half as thick as the other wire.

A comparison of the wire that came with the bra and the wire from sweet cup


The reason why I could wear this bra with the heavier wires, is because the gore is too wide. The gore is sitting on breast tissue. When I first put the bra on, I don’t really feel it, but after a few hours it hurts (not on Cleo level, but it definitely felt better when I took the bra off). Because the gore comes up relatively high, I would need it to be overlapping for it to not cause any pain.

I do think the band is a hair too small for me, but sizing up would probably make the band too big. I could use a row, maybe 2 of an extender, but I don’t have a 5 row extender. I think the band feeling so tight could have an effect on how the cups/wires are stretching. One thing definitely worth noting, is that literally second after putting the bra on, when I bent over to put my pants on, the bottom of the band in the front flipped up, and stayed that way the whole day. I didn’t fix this because it would keep flipping back up. There isn’t any boning in the band, so the longline is more for show than function.



The straps are wideset, but it doesn’t bother me. The straps are also plain (boring), and stretchy.

As much as I dislike the wires on this bra, I do want to buy it in the pale pink that it comes in. I also want to try it in a 30DD. I wonder if a looser band would prevent the stretching of the wires.

For now, I’m recommending that anyone interested in this bra (that has narrow-average roots) wait until,you,can find this bra on sale.

Ewa Michalak CHP Opium 65DD

This will be a 3-part series on my experience with the Opium bra in 3 styles (as of now)

This will be a short review, since I didn’t wear the bra, and I ended up selling it. I owned this bra for 4 months before I  decided to sell it. I bought it with the matching shorts, so I need a bra to match. I don’t love the shorts, but I love the opium print. Hopefully I will get around to reviewing the shorts when I get a bra that fits.

I love the look of Ewa’s CHP, but on pretty much every one that I’ve owned the gore has pressed into my sternum. I’ve owned 3 CHPs, and 2 of them I sold…


As I’ve said, the gore on this bra was irritating- measuring at 2.25 inches (5.72 cm) high, and .6 inches (1.52 cm) wide. If the wires were softer, this wouldn’t have been an issue, but the wires are pretty hard, so the height and width were problematic for me. My breasts are close set (possibly center full, but I’m not completely sure), so I need a gore that is thin, and the higher it goes, the thinner it needs to get.


The cups were a little too open on the top, not enough to size down, but I would have been okay with the pads in (I hate wearing pads). If I still had the bra now, I may have liked the fit of the cups more. I’m not sure why they were too open, because in terms of measurements the bra should have been perfect– cup height 5.25 inches (13.34 cm), cup width 5 inches (12.7 cm), cup depth 8.2 inches (20.83 cm)

Smaller breast

Bigger breast


The straps are relatively wideset, but not wide enough to irritate my skin.


Ewa Michalak Braobsessed Exclsuive Fairytale bra 65DD + brief

I returned the 65E fairytale bra, and asked Jaimie for 1 cup size smaller- 65DD.  However, I didn’t respond to Jaimie when she asked me if I wanted her to add the fairytale 65DD to her current order (august), so it ended up being placed in her next order, and luckily I was able to get the last bra made out of this fabric. I say luckily, because I kept the panties, but returned the ill-fitting bra.

Jaimie let me know this bra was included in her Oct order, and it was shipped to me Nov 9th (2 days after my birthday). I don’t remember exactly how long it took, but in November all of my international packages took longer than normal to be delivered, I think I got it a little under 2 weeks.

I love it. The bra is all around comfortable.


There is no space in the cups. In the pics the cups appear slightly pointy, but the material has relaxed with wear (yes, I’ve worn this a few times, but not back to back). The height of the cup is nice and low, at 5.25 inches (a hair lower than the 65E). The depth of the cup is 8.25, which is a lot better than the 9 inch depth that the 65E had. Oddly enough the width of the cup in 65DD is bigger than that of 65E, 5.25 inches and 5 inches respectively.



The band is nice and firm. It stretches to 27.5 inches, which is 1 inch smaller than my comfortable underbust measurement, but it doesn’t feel too tight.


I didn’t have to adjust the straps with this bra as much as I did with the 65E. The straps are about halfway adjusted in these pics, but I think I loosened them up a little more after wearing. (The ribbon on the front of the straps may appear whitish, but it’s actually a very light purple, and matches the ribbon on the cups)



The gore is low (but higher that the 65E), at 1.75 inches. The cup separation is .75 inches, but I think I need something narrower. It’s not sitting on tissue, but I think a narrower gore would suit me better.


The panties

The panties are size 36

One of the things I didn’t like about this set at first was the the fabric on the panties doesn’t match (color wise) with the bra. They’re more of a bluish purple. However, I do wish I also bought the thong.

I love Ewa’s panties/thongs, as they’re very comfortable. The material is very soft. They do ride up a bit when walking around with no pants on (the pic shows how they look when I walked from my room to my balcony), but this isn’t something I’ve noticed when wearing pants. They do have a considerable amount of coverage, but they’re not “grannyish”. The gusset is diamond shaped, and the seam is visible from the front.


Panache Fontaine 30DD

I have very few of the new Panache/Cleo bras. Actually now that I think of it, I’ve owned few Panache bras other than Jasmine. The first Panache bras I had were the Loretta (plunge & balconette). I decided to try this bra for a few reasons. The main one being that I saw it actually had a low gore. Another reason was the color- I loved the ‘boldness’ of it. The third reason was because I found it for $20 on zulily, which I thought was cheap. Since I’m more or less refusing to buy from zulily, I looked around and found it cheaper on eBay.

I bought it from “Lingerie outlet store” on eBay. They have a lot of Cleo/Panache/Freya/Curvy Kate etc. for cheap. I’d bought from them in the past without issue, so I didn’t hesitate to buy this. Thankfully I had some sense when I ordered this bra, because I was going to order both colors for myself, and one for my sister. According to Lingerie outlet store’s eBay page, they ship within 24-48 hours. I ordered the bra Oct 18, by Oct 24th it still hadn’t shipped out, so I contacted them. They responded quickly by saying they had some technical issues on their end, but that my order was going to be shipped that day (10/24). By Halloween, I saw the order still hadn’t shipped, so I asked them about it again. So they said again they would ship it that day, and this time they actually did. While I wasn’t in a rush to get it, I wasn’t happy that it took them 2 weeks, and 2 messages for them to ship the bra. When I posted about this on twitter I was made aware by one of my followers that they had shipping issue with LOS as well.


On to the review:

When I searched for reviews of this bra, I came across very few, and all of them were women a lot more busty than I. So I can’t say I found the reviews helpful.

This bra was an utter fail on me. To be blunt, it fit me very much like a Freya ‘plunge balcony’ (the only successful Freya plunge balcony I’ve had was Freya ignite).


The material on the bra was very firm, not one ounce of stretch. It was Freya like in that there was visible cutting in at the top of the cup, but right at the seam, there was some space. It was also very shallow at the bottom. So with those 4 things, I was left with a very pointy appearance. The top of the cup pushed my breasts down, and gave an unfavorable appearance. I can’t say who this cup would work for, but it’s definitely not for FOT, maybe even or shallow? If I sized up, I wouldn’t have had the quadding, and I possibly would have had enough room at the bottom, but there would have been too much space where the seams meet.

This looks so bad. 😣


The gore was very low, however I forgot to measure this bra before shipping out, so I can’t say how short it was. But it was definitely lower than 2 inches.


The band felt firm.
