Ewa Michalak – Well Made Polish Lingerie and Why You Need It in Your Wardrobe Right Now

If you follow Forever Yours Lingerie on Facebook or Instagram (and we hope that you do!), you might know by now that we are obsessed with Polish-made bras – the brand Ewa Michalak specifically – and we want you to be too.

But why? What’s all the hype about? Let us pour you some tea and tell you all about it. Then you can fall in love with lingerie designed by women, produced by women and made especially for women.

That right there kind of says it all. We should all be wearing bras and panties that are designed and produced by the very people who know them best – women! Of course, there are fabulous men in the lingerie industry making magical things happen, but Ewa Michalak remains ahead of the curve when it comes to well-fitting, properly sized and on-trend pieces.

Ewa Michalak is a shining example of how small business principles can be used and still allow a brand to become an international success. All of their products are made to order and produced locally in Poland, instead of relying on cheaper outsourcing. This aspect is key when it comes to some of our favourite things about this brand, namely their sizing.

Sizing is one of the biggest defining factors when it comes to our devotion to Ewa Michalak. Because everything is locally made to order this allows for little variances in the sizing of each style. How many times have you tried on a brand you like in one size, only to find that the next time the cups are too big or the band is too tight? Super frustrating and Ewa Michalak gets that.

Hand in hand with consistent production is how they categorize their styles. Each style is given a category (S, BM, PL, FB, etc. which can be found on their website and in most of our product descriptions) to help you select the fit that works best for you. So if you feel amazing in one SM style, all other SM-made styles should make you feel equally thrilled.

Beyond consistent sizing and style production, there is an endless availability of actual sizes. Not everyone is a 34DD (but we love you all the same if you are <3 ) and their selections reflect the vast variances in the human body. Ewa Michalak makes harder to find sizes or shapes: a wider back and smaller cup sizes, or a smaller back and full bust, and everything in between. Basically, if you have a body, any shape or size, they will work to fit you. They will make custom sizes for an extra fee and these can be ordered from them directly.

 

Additionally, Ewa Michalak offers removable insert pads for breast asymmetry. We know that so many women are self-conscious about this, and it is fantastic for them to know that there is a company out there that makes bras specifically for them and their perfectly unique breasts.

Okay, so their bras fit great. What else? How about bras that make you feel sexy and confident? Bras you want to show off? Style and fashion is another reason we’re bewitched by this Polish brand.

Ewa Michalak designs a large variety of styles – there is literally something for everyone. Also, they are extremely progressive in their styling; they beat out a lot of other brands with the strappy trend and the tattoo look. They are supportive and fashionable, feminine and functional; no need to compromise.

 

And then there’s comfort! Ewa Michalak bras are comfortable from your first wear. They might be a little bit like your favourite pair of shoes; a quick trip around the block to break them in and make them your own. But then you feel them soften up and you feel cozy, secure and ready to hit the town. Yes, we’re still talking about the bras. In the right style for your shape, a bra should feel like you’re wearing nothing at all and this brand provides that feeling for so many people who try it.

 

Now any bra this magical should cost you an entire paycheque, right? Nope! Ewa Michalak pieces are ridiculously affordable with most styles priced under $100 CAD.

So Polish women are making well-fitting, stylish, comfortable and inclusive bras because they understand bodies and the struggles of finding a good bra that you are excited to wear. What’s not to love about Ewa Michalak?!

Get Your Best Beach Body Ever – How to Rock The Best Swimsuits This Summer

If you clicked on this hoping to find the latest fitness or diet trends, you might be disappointed. While we want you to feel your very best on the beach this year, this has nothing to do with crunches or kale. Of course, being healthy is awesome – but feeling confident in a bathing suit is all about the right fit and staying true to you.

You can find a hundred articles about how to find the right bathing suit for you (and they’ll probably link you to a meal and exercise plan too) but why should you avoid patterns or bright colours just because solids could be more slimming. Black looks great on everyone – but what if your soul screams for rainbows? You might look banging in a plunge bikini top – but what if a high-neck style is calling your name?

Just because someone else is telling you what should be best for you doesn’t mean that it is right for you. That’s the beauty of being true to you – you ultimately get to decide!

We at Forever Yours Lingerie believe that the best way to get a bikini body is to take your body – yes the one you have right now, curves, bumps, stretch marks and all – and put a bikini on it. Voila! Bikini body. Obviously, confidence and self-love is an ever-evolving process and not all of us are there yet (hello gorgeous cover-ups and maxi skirts!) but you should always love what you wear regardless of where you are in your body love journey.

Now, there are some things to consider when looking at the fit of your swimsuit to keep you feeling comfortable and confident.

  1. If you have a larger bust and/or prefer extra support, many brands offer bra cup sized bikini, tankini, and one piece options. Because of the underwire and cup sizing, it is always a good idea to be professionally fit to make sure that you are well supported, comfortable and that your suit will last.
  2. All swimsuits will stretch out in the water. When looking for the right fit, allow the bathing suit to be a little bt snug against you. Snug does not mean too tight, uncomfortable or painful! Honour your body and know what’s right for you. But a long-lasting fit will do you best if you plan for the fabric to stretch out.
  3. Consider the fabric of the suit. What do you plan to do in it? Any swimsuit will be perfect for lounging or tanning but if you plan to be in chlorinated water, be mindful of your choice. Look for a suit with a higher polyester content (one that is preferably chlorine resistant) and lower spandex/lycra mix. Hot tubs will always be rough on any suit: high heat and chlorine will break down the structure of the fabric. It is best to use an older and worn down suit in a hot tub.
  4. Don’t rule out design details just because of your body shape – high cut legs and ruching can be flattering on everyone!
  5. Try everything on. Okay, maybe not everything, but don’t go into a shopping session close-minded. You never know what style might surprise you. Just because you’ve only worn sporty one pieces for years or you’ve been told that you can only pull off a boyshorts, that doesn’t mean there isn’t something different and exciting out there for you.

Colours, patterns, every style imaginable, regular and plus sizing – there are so many options available to help you find your very best beach body. Take the dive today and find your perfect fit.

Not Your Grandmother’s Bra Store

Picture this: A frustrated woman is shopping at a trendy lingerie store in her local mall. She is surrounded by a pile of 20 or so bras that looked cute on the hanger, but WILL NOT support her beautiful bust. The ill-fitting contraptions she’s trying are pinching, puckering and poking her in all the wrong ways. She sighs.  She knows there are places that might cater to her needs but cannot fathom the fact that she – a modern, fashionable woman – should have to settle for her grandmother’s full support bra. Sound familiar?
