This is a sturdy bra. It's out of my first EM order and I can't get over how impressed I am. Nothing flimsy or cut-rate about it. The wings are so well reinforced and the overall construction is really very good. The fabric on the Kobalt, which I ordered in a 30FF and 30G, is extremely stiff out of the box. I'm curious how much it will relax after wearing and washing. Hopefully it will relax a little, since I'd like it to conform just a tiny bit more to my shape. Still, this is definitely a keeper. The greyish blue color and the pattern of the fabric are really lovely. The shape is a little odd currently, with the way it shoves my breasts forward through the center, like it's trying to pour them out of a spout, though I think that's more to do with the way the bra was folded for shipping. Pretty sure about that. Still, it looks wonderful and I have been completely won over by all the EM bras in my order.
Size-wise, I wasn't sure what to do for my purchase. I heard that the PL bras run small in the cup, but I thought that the HPs, HMs, and maybe CHPs would work better for me, so those are the bras I tried. I can't compare PL sizing to the non-PL bras that I bought, but I can say that I fit the HP and CHP in the smaller of my two "normal" sizes and went down one cup size from there for the HM (though I will be trying the HM in my regular size. The one I bought is a bit small in the cups). Personally, I thought that the HP Kobalt ran fairly true to size in the cup. The 30 (65) band was nice and snug for my 27" rib cage. It could have been a little tighter, but I don't know that I'd want to go down to a smaller band since I'm afraid that that might be uncomfortable on my ribs.
