The EM Amorek is my favorite Ewa Michalak bra. Like, ever. I mean, come on- there’s a freakin’ heart in the center instead of a bow. The set reminds me of cinnamon hearts, flowers, and little teddy bears holding hearts that say “Hug Me”. If Valentine’s day was lingerie, it would be the Amorek set.
I actually bought this set several months ago and saved it for today.
Now, before I begin, I had a huge, elaborate shoot planned with a hired photographer and I even got roses to have in the shoot, but the only ones that matched the colors on the bra were on death row and died before shoot day. I couldn’t use the wilted roses (what could be more romantic than holding dead foliage against me?) and I ate all of the cinnamon hearts, but I do have a detailed review for you to hopefully compensate:
In typical Ewa Michalak fashion, the band is quite snug. I ordered a 32 to allow for breathing, and my usual EM cup size of C.
The bra is comfortable, just like most EM bras, and is supportive without being restricting. The band is double-lined, accounting for the snugness, and the cups are sheer with satin tape stitched over the seams.
Th 3DM model has fairly short wires and doesn’t come up very high in the center gore, meaning that the wires dug into my sternum, so that took a bit of breaking in.
Amorek is true to size, if not ever so slightly smaller than the padded styles. This could also be because of the non-stretch lace that’s attached to the top of the cup.
I love the contrasting red stitching, the little details like the heart on the center gore and on the back of the thong, and the satin on top of the underwire channeling.
The shape given is the classic EM nonpadded shape, uplifted and natural. I’m more partial to rounded shapes, so the natural look doesn’t do a whole lot for my boobs and from some angles it looks like I’m not wearing a bra at all.
My only other gripe is that on the thong, they’ve trimmed the top with the same non-stretch lace as the cups, so it requires some shimmying to get it on and off if I don’t want to tear anything.
I love this bra. It’s not something to wear under a fitted top, but it’s super cute and comfortable. I’m very pleased with it, but I will say that unless EM releases some other amazing non-padded designs, I won’t be buying another any time soon solely because of the shape.
Whether you like V-day or not, I hope you’re having a great one!
