I recently took a road trip out to visit Jaimie at Bra Obsessed and picked up just a couple of things 😉
Jaimie had my change room ready to go before I had even arrived. So much temptation!
Her shop truly is a Polish bra lover’s paradise!
Today I’m reviewing one of my purchases from that trip, the glorious Ewa Michalak S Opium.
I knew from the moment I first saw this set that I MUST have it. Sometimes with floral prints I can take them or I can leave them, but this one was different. This one is like a gorgeous water colour painting of poppies, done in the prettiest muted shades of pinks, peaches and lavenders with pops of bright pink throughout. This colour scheme (and those pretty pink straps) make it a perfect choice for Spring and Summer.
I purchased my S Opium set in size 65GG (30GG) for the bra, with the matching full briefs in size 36. I have recently gone up a cup in my bra size due to some unfortunate weight gain that seems intent on sticking around. The 65GG is a perfect fit and for the first time in my personal Polish bra wearing history, I am able to keep the cookies (pads) in! This 65 band measures approximately 23 inches unstretched, and approximately 30″ stretched (without starting cup distortion) after several washes and wears. The band has a fairly firm feel to it.
Ewa Michalak S style bras are a favourite of mine as they keep me well anchored and provide an amazing up front and center, lifted appearance. I rotate between the lined S style and the unlined SM style, depending on the weather.
Even though S is best for me for the reasons outlined above, other ladies have their own cut preferences. My co-blogger MsDizz for example does best in the PL style and was able (by special request) to order her Opium in PL directly through Ewa Michalak. This option is at the discretion of Ewa Michalak, but if you see a bra you love that is available only in a cut that isn’t perfect for you, it doesn’t hurt to write and ask. Note though that this will make the item a final sale (not returnable) and it does cost an extra 40 PLN to have the style changed. If ordering through Bra Obsessed, you can email and enquire about the availability and cost of other cuts (all returnable when ordered through Bra Obsessed).
MsDizz ordered her PL Opium in size 65H and is modelling it for us in the picture below, without the cookies in.
The measurements for her 65H PL are approximately 23.5 inches unstretched and approximately 30.5 inches stretched and unlike me, she does not feel that the band is on the firm side. Always interesting to have different perspectives and that is part of the beauty of having not just one but EIGHT bloggers here at An Enhanced Experience.
My co-blogger Tanzilove has Opium on order in CHP cut in size 80GG and she will be showing off her CHP Opium and giving her thoughts and opinions in an upcoming review.
I do love a matching set and these panties, worn with the bra, make for such a pretty, pulled together, flirty and fun look. They are very comfortable and they don’t ride up during the day. Here is a look at the panties, both front and back.
Speaking of a pulled together look, I decided to have my nails done to match, just for fun. This is Bio Seaweed Gel polish in 67 Passionfruit. A pretty pairing, don’t you think?
I am expecting the SM Malinowy set very soon and that colour coordinates perfectly with Opium so that you can mix and match the bras and panty combinations between the two sets.
I think that deserves picking up something else to match! A new lipstick perhaps? Stay tuned for my Malinowy review to come soon and we’ll see what I can come up with.
