    I'm amazed at how comfortable this bra is. I generally have a hard time with soft cup and unlined bras because the wires can be a bit stiff compared to a moulded cup bra. However, this bra has pretty forgiving wires that wrap comfortably around my boobs without grinding against my ribs anywhere. The wires are less than a cm too wide at the top, which is a pass for me in terms of wire width. The shape it gives is rounded but relaxed. The profile it gives me is not very projected which leads me to think that the comfort of this bra lies in the fact that it's simply cupping my boobs and harnessing them without trying to gather or force it into a terribly unnatural or unusual shape. So far I've only worn it for a couple of hours, but the gore height is rather borderline tolerable like my 28H - Freya » Tara (4601). Any higher or wider and this bra's cup comfort would be completely negated by the gore discomfort.

    See my other review of the same bra. I bought two for dying purposes, but I'm selling both as they are too small.

    I need to size down a few sizes in this as I usually wear padded bras which fit differently. this is really pretty but im just too small for it. It never fit even when i first got it as it was a gift.

    I didn't really do much research on the 28H Emily prior to purchasing via Zulily not long ago, but I suppose I should have.

    See, I wear a 28H in the Romance, and even though I'm between 28H and 30GG right now (preferring either loose 28s or tight 30s, since my underbust is 29"), I figured it'd probably have a stretchy enough band since I can still wear the Romance.

    The band is a bit tight. I apparently have one that was made properly (I say 'properly' because 28's should only stretch to 28," but CK is known for much stretchier bands) because the system noticed that the band only ... stretches to 28." Now, it technically *can* stretch a bit further, but I don't like to include extra stretch measurements if it means that the bra is warping. I can fasten it just fine with my 29" underbust, but it starts to warp the wires, so I don't really count it as stretching to 29."

    The real problem though, is the cup. I should have been fine in the H because my Romance still fits me in the cup just fine (I did check prior to ordering the single H cup), but the cup is in fact too small. It doesn't matter too much to me since it's not really noticeable through clothing, but it is annoying. I really only bought this one (I actually bought two of them) for dying purposes, because I am dying (ha, see what I did there?) for some jewel toned bras, and people aren't really making them. My plans for these two stark white Emily's are ruby red and forrest green. My next white bra will be a nice aubergine color (think ModCloth's I Love Your Dress in Plum).

    So, all in all, it's pretty now, but will be prettier when I get through with it. Comfort level is really just meh, since it's too small, but no big deal. It'll do.

    UPDATE 8/4: Okay so I just realized how horrible the shape is for me! Wow. Thanks, photos! Glad I didn't pay much for these cause they're kind of awful on me, and the wires are far, far too wide.

    I really like this bra, except for the straps. I have very narrow shoulders (disproportionately small,even) and the straps have to be tightened on every bra, although now that I know my band size a bit better, I don't usually have straps falling off all the time, at least! With this bra, the straps end up almost in my armpit, but everything else seems fairly good-much, much better than my old 32DDs and DDDs ever did! The band is a little loose, but not terribly so, although it may stretch more with more wear. (I've worn it all day maybe three or four days since it came in the mail) I don't get my usual dreaded quadboob, so that's a huge relief for me! The color is lovely and the embroidery is gorgeous. I got it for $20 on eBay, so I can deal with the straps being a little wide-they aren't chafing, and possibly on someone with less tiny shoulders they would fit better.

    Acquired this bra by exchange on Bratabase in the hopes that it would be big enough in the cups, and it's actually a lot bigger than most of the HH's and J's by Panache that I just got, and certainly much bigger than the Curvy Kate Thrill Me bra in 28HH. I'm keeping it even though I get a bit of quad boobing because it's still comfortable and keeps my breasts in place; with most bras, they shift around during the day, but this one stays put.

    Pros: Comfortable.
    Super pretty color range- this one is bright red and orange. I've never had a red bra before! And I wear ... a lot of pink, and it doesn't show under my pink shirts :)
    Looks a lot higher quality in person than in pictures.
    Cups run big- but it might be a bad thing for some people!


    Cons: Straps a little too far apart for me.
    Cups run big- might be a pro, though!
    Lace along the top of the cups is a little frilly and doesn't lie quite flat. It makes the bra pretty visible under a shirt.
    Compared to my other bras, I feel like the quality of the fabric isn't quite as nice.
    Wide wires- they go considerably beyond where my breast tissue ends. They also aren't as well padded as on my Freya bras. No side support underwiring, but that always pokes me painfully anyway.

    very nice bra. It is a little different from the 28HH, i guess they are from a different batch? The hooks and eyes are the same colour as the material in the 28H, and white in the HH... also the lining is more silky in the H.

    As for the fit, the wires and the straps are a teeny bit wide - after removing i can see the wire mark about 2 inches away from where my breast tissues ends, but it is very comfortable and i don't feel a burning desire to rip it off after a couple of hours.

    I think that CK is not the right brand for me, as they have a number of not-quite-there on the fit (everything seems to be much wider than i need, gore, strap separation, wires )
