Amazon can be a great one-stop shop for a lot of things, but it turns out that premium imported lingerie is not one of them. Certain coveted brands like Ewa Michalak aren't even available on Amazon, and even for the lingerie brands that are, the customer experience is lacking compared to a specialized store.
If you're in the market for a bra with the perfect fit, let’s have a look at 3 reasons why you should skip Amazon altogether and what to do instead!
The first thing you might be thinking is that you’ve found Ewa Michalak (EM) bras on Amazon before. But you just can’t seem to find them again.
Unfortunately, whatever EM bras you find on Amazon aren’t the real deal and should be avoided at all costs. The seller you bought the bras from probably was discovered and taken off Amazon.
The thing is, for a product to be sold on Amazon, it needs a universal product identifier. These identifiers are the bar codes you typically see on products and the associated number (GTIN) underneath.
It’s not uncommon for some businesses not to have these types of codes. These sorts of companies tend to be private-label brands and those that handmake their products - enter Ewa Michalak.
All Ewa Michalak bras are handmade in Poland for the ultimate quality guaranteed!
Without going into too much detail, businesses without GTINs can apply for an exemption, but it is an awkward process. Plus, Amazon requires some sort of label when shipping, so they add one for a fee of $0.55 per product.
You might be thinking, is it not easier to get those GTINs and just be done with all the hassle? Maybe so, but it’ll cost even more.
Depending on how many bras Ewa Michalak wanted to sell (which I imagine is a lot), they could be paying up to $12,000 to get started and then a $2000 annual fee to keep their GTINs.
It may seem like pocket change in the grand scheme of things, but all these extra costs mean the price of EM bras will have to go up to compensate.
I don’t know about you, but many people will search around for the best price for what they’re looking for. So if Amazon is more expensive than other EM-selling sites, most people will go with the cheaper option. I know I would.
When you have the choice of spending more money for an EM bra or get a better price from a small business like ours, there’s no question.
Polish bras are worth every penny for their top notch quality, and bra quality is especially important big-busted women. Large cup bras are put to the test more than smaller bras.
But you want to make sure you have the right cup and band size. So when buying a non-US bra, you have to tackle European/UK sizing and figure out how to convert to US.
That sounds like a lot of work, right?
This is where small businesses like ours come in. Whereas Amazon can only give recommendations based on your search, our team is ready and waiting to help you find the perfect bra style for your shape, your breast tissue, and your needs.
I think most of us would choose a personal recommendation over something suggested by a computer because we tend to trust human suggestions more.
It’s why so many of us ask the waiter at a new restaurant what their favorite dish is that they highly recommend. They’ve tried and tested the dishes and know from experience which dishes are liked most by diners.
That’s what a small business like ours prides itself in — individualized recommendations and a personal touch.
Do you think Amazon’s (sometimes included) size chart will really tell you what sizing is best for you? Sure, Amazon can be a good place read customer reviews and comments, but that’s too easily influenced by customers accidentally buying the wrong size from the get-go.
Annoyingly, converting from European bra sizes to US isn’t always an easy thing. It depends on the brand and how they run, so Amazon customers are on their own in figuring out which style and size to order. At Miseczki, we include both the US size equivalent and the brand's native sizing for all of our product pages to make this a bit easier for you.
There are reasons why small business experts are the only choice when it comes to finding the dream bra. Women want something comfortable and looking good is an added bonus. Our most recommended bra, the SF Nibynic hits both right on the head, and it’s easy to see why it’s a bestseller.
If you're unsure about your size and need a place to get started, there are some amazingly accurate bra sizing calculators online to make sure you and your girls are happy!
Or even better, get in contact with our friendly expert customer support to get the exceptional and personal bra shopping experience you deserve! We'll provide virtual fitting advice to make sure your new bra is the right size for the shape your breasts, the band is snug on your chest, and that you love every single detail, from the cups to the straps.
Now, there isn’t a customer support service out there that doesn’t have its issues, but often this info of concern or complaint isn’t passed on to the sellers or packaging departments.
Without getting into the nooks and crannies of Amazon customer support, it’s worth knowing how effective your complaints actually are for lasting change .
Your complaints and concerns may not even make it back to the seller, depending on their chosen fulfillment type.
If they’ve chosen Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA), this means Amazon takes control of all aspects of the selling process, including customer services and returns. In other words, it’s very unlikely the seller will hear your voice.
According to customerservicescoreboard.com, many Amazon customers have found a dip in the quality of customer support. And, one poor soul was bounced between Amazon and the seller so long they missed the 30 days returns window.
This is why dealing with smaller customer service teams like ours gives you the feeling that your concerns and complaints will be listened to, and you’ll be treated seriously and fairly.
You want to be confident when buying things online that you’ll be taken care of quickly and efficiently if a return or exchange needs to happen. (Which hopefully won’t need to happen!)
This type of customer support is precisely what bra customers deserve. Buying bras online can be a bit of a gamble, and so is getting the right size. That’s why our expert customer support team is ready and waiting to help guide you into finding the perfect bra for you.
And you can be sure you’ll be properly listened to if you have concerns instead of being brushed aside.
Plus, picking a small business means shipping your delicate bra with USPS First Class Mail. Now, this might seem like any other courier, but the perk of delivering your bra through First Class is that its van friends will all be 3.5oz or less.
So, no being squished by a heavy toy or tv!
Now that you know why choosing to buy your bras from sites other than Amazon is in your best interest, you’re probably wondering what Ewa Michalak is and why you need to buy their fabulous Polish bras!
Ewa Michalak is a premium bra manufacturer in Łódź, Poland, specializing in gorgeous and supportive bras for women with bigger breasts.
With their narrow wires and sturdy boning structure, these bras actually provide more support than many American brands. So, it’s easy to see why these bras are one of the most popular lingerie options from Poland!
And because Ewa Michalak specializes in bras with deep cups regardless of band size, you can be confident you’ll find the perfect size for your ladies. And that they won’t be planning The Great Escape anytime soon either!
Before diving into our collection of Ewa Michalak bras, it’s worth noting that Ewa Michalak uses a letter system to categorize their bras. You may have seen them before and haven’t given it much notice.
Ewa labels their bras after the style of the cups, using letters like BM, S, and SF. It may not affect your chosen bra but if you need some guidance, check out this guide first!
The BM balconette bra is an unpadded bra known for narrow wires and greater projection for fuller busts. This style is available in a wide range of band and cup sizes in multiple lace colors: black, beige, white, blush pink, and even emerald. The BM is also avaialable in the "Bibi" black lace colorway which comes with sexy, removable harness straps - wear it with the straps or without! Across all lace colorways, the cups are topped with gorgeous, stretch lace that extends above the edge of the cups, for a fairly full coverage fit without feeling like your girls are swallowed whole by the bra. BM Balconettes are finished with beautiful embellishments such as bows on the straps and jewel details at the center gore.
The lovely and supportive BM Balconette style.
Meaning ‘smooth’ in Polish, this minimalist, unmolded full coverage bra is perfect for daily wear. Each cup is made of a shiny opaque finish on the bottom, and the top of the cup is made of a stretch, sheer elastin tulle fabric.

Meaning ‘like nothing’ in Polish, it’s easy to see why this is our best seller and one we highly recommend!
