A few months ago, I tried out and reviewed the BM Gwiezdny Pył by Ewa Michalak in a 70JJ. However, not long after I bought it, the BM Miętusek was released, and (surprise surprise) I fell in love all over again! Given that I found the Gwiezdny Pył still had a little room in the cups, and knowing that black colourways frequently run smaller than lighter colourways, I decided the try out the Miętusek in a 70J.
The pastel colours of the Miętusek are reminiscent of ice cream, macarons and candy floss. The mint colour is light and fresh, and the baby pink bow on the gore adds just the perfect touch! Since I wasn’t 100% sure that the bra was going to fit me, I decided not to order the matching briefs, so I’m wearing the bra here with a pair of F&F brazilian briefs (which I think match quite well!). Luckily for me, this size fits beautifully.
Unlike the Gwiezdny Pył, which was primarily constructed with laminate fabric, the Miętusek is the same wonderfully soft stretch lace all over, with an inner cup layer of white mesh to add support. While these fabrics make it very comfortable, it also means it’s slightly more generous size-wise than the Gwiezdny Pył, and I find this cup size to fit me fine.
The construction and fit is near identical to my 70JJ Gwiezdny Pył, with some obvious slight changes in wire lengths/width due to the smaller cup size. As I found before, the wires are close-set and average-to-low at the gore and sides, which I find perfect for me.
As with the Gwiezdny Pył, I find this style gives quite a rounded-but-natural shape – still quite uplifted, but not quite so much as my S/SM bras, for example. As this is a smaller cup size than my other BM (and of course, all of my S/SM bras), the wires are even narrower than my other Ewa Michalak bras.
I find the wires to be incredibly narrow on me, to the point of being nearly too narrow (!), so this is definitely one of my narrowest, deepest bras. So, for those who need narrow wires, this could be a great choice (though simultaneously, if you already find EM’s wires tend to be on the narrow side for you, this might be one to avoid).
The BM Miętusek fastens with three sets of hooks and eyes, with the standard three columns of eyes to increase the bra’s lifespan. The straps are fully adjustable, and are attached as a U-shaped back (my preferred choice). I find the band to be on the firm side for a 32, stretching to about 31 inches.
I found this bra to have lots of lower fullness with a high placed apex, so I think this would fit those with more lower fullness well. However, the all-over gentle stretchiness of the bra gives some leeway in sizing (particularly on top), so as long as you require narrow and deep cups, this may be worth trying for many breast types.
I find the amount of coverage perfect for me, and is comparable to most unpadded bras I own (if not slightly lower coverage). One thing I did notice compared to my other BM was how much of a narrow gore it has – it is much closer set, with the wires diverging much more gradually towards the bottom. I am not sure why this difference is, but as someone who is more close-set towards my underbust than most bras accommodate for, it is much appreciated.
Overall this is an absolutely beautiful, wonderfully comfortable bra, and I am so glad to have it in my wardrobe. For comparison, I am currently wearing a 30K in most UK bras (30JJ in Panache, 32J in padded Curvy Kate bras) and a 70K in Ewa Michalak S/SM styles, so for those who need narrow wires and deep cups, I would definitely recommend trying the BM in 1-2 cups down from your S/SM size (depending on fabric choice).
