I’ve been meaning to do this post for a while- a fact made quite clear as it’s still summer in the photos. The Burek , while only available in some remaining sizes, is now available in a few other similar versions, the Cukiereczek and the Summer Time, are available in a full range of sizes.
The Burek is one of my favorite bras based on its looks alone.It’s beautiful, and nerdily enough, reminds me of Tolkein. Fit-wise, the cups are a touch too large for me on my biggest days, which means that I’ll be giving them a little alteration to make them fit. The shape is the classic EM round-but-natural, and is passable under tight tops.
The band, a 65 (30), could easily be a 28 and is double-lined in fabric, which gave it a much sturdier feel than a lot of the powermesh bras that I have.The cups, in all their prettiness, are actually not that visible under something tight. They are, however, kind of gapey on me even in the smaller size (which I also bought). This is probably because they’re so open at the top and I need something a little more closed.
Support-wise, this bra is amazing. The wires are nice and sturdy, and the previously mentioned double-lined band is just swell at keeping everything in place.
Officially, this is the first Ewa Michalak bra I’ve tried. I do have several others now, but this was the one that started it all. Initially attracted by the look of it, I soon came to realize why everyone loved Polish bras so much. The detailing, quality, and general price points, in my opinion, are superior to most UK brands.
Give this bra a shot if you have narrow roots, enjoy a snug band, and a plunging neckline- or if you like the look of the bra in general. Trust me, you’re not alone.
Until next time,
