As regular readers will know, I do love my Freya Deco bras! The moulded cups, the low gore… and yet it stops at a 36GG, and I need a 36H, oh the misery! However, I may have found a Polish substitute – the S Wodzianka by Ewa Michalak, size 38HH/20.
The gore is a little higher than that of the Deco, but the enviable shape it gives me is reminiscent of the Deco.
The cups are extremely solid, more so than the Deco. However, my bust shape is completely suited to it, and it’s a really flawless fit on me. I have been wearing it for several months now, and it’s a fantastic bra.
The straps are slightly padded, and half adjustable. I only needed to adjust them a tiny bit when wearing the bra, and so hopefully smaller shouldered will still be ok with this style.
The band has three hooks and eyes – a huge tick for me!
The unusual and beautiful pattern on the cups is printed on, but it gives the illusion of being textured. The cups come with removable pads to help correct asymmetry or give that little boost. I wear it without them, and they were very easy to remove and are undetectable.
The bra and the extremely comfortable knickers are both spot on fit wise. Every single set I’ve tried recently has been pretty much perfect, and I’m really starting to falling head over heels with Ewa!
The hold ups worn in my review can be seen in this post.
If you would like to try the S Wodzianka by Ewa Michalak and your size is not available, then email Ewa to ask for one to be made. The sizing chart here and Bratabase should be able to help you figure out your size. Personally, I wear a band and two cups up from my Panache and Curvy Kate bras, but there is no formula. If you want to work out the currency, use the code ‘PLN’ (Polish Zlotys) to help you figure it out.
I recommend Ewa to almost everyone, as the range of bras and the presence of padding is larger sizes just makes them so perfect. Have you tried them, or do you want to try an Ewa?
