CH Cherry is the first CH Ewa has made in some time. I didn't particularly care for the looks of it when it was released, but since the CH can't be beat in terms of immediate projection in my size, I did not hesitate to purchase it.
This is hands down the most projected bra I have. I have six (?) other CHs and they don't even come close. I believe Ewa tweaked her pattern, she must have, because this bra could show movies.
Cherry is a deep dark red, really similar to a just under-ripe Bing cherry, with a black mesh overlay. The mesh is netted with dots. The ... band is black powermesh. The cup straps and the shoulder straps are fully adjustable and made of the cheapest elastic on the planet. The entire bra is finished off with red bows, a giant one in the center and smaller ones on the straps.
It seems quite a few people got loose bands with the Cherry. I didn't. Mine stretches to about 29" and works for me on the loosest or second set (of four) of hooks.
The shoulder straps are stupid. They are so very thin and too stretchy. They are cheap and they look it. They're fully adjustable, but they are almost impossible to adjust. Once in place, they stay there but getting them in place is a chore. They are initially itchy, but that goes away. I wore the bra for an entire day with the straps as is, they do more or less stop being annoying, but I have to over-tighten them and they leave awful red marks on me. I have straps to replace them with and I plan on doing that before I wear the bra again.
The cups are very open and very projected. So, the bra seems big. I have to wear the pad on my right side. In my pics I have both pads in, but it's unnecessary on my left side and actually causes the cup to be too small so I just wear the one. I couldn't size down, but I wasn't expecting it to be so open when I ordered it. The cup pretty much comes out from the wire parallel to the floor, it's amazing actually and definitely presents the bust. Because the projection is insane and my roots are short, there is not a whole lot of cleavage going on for me, which is fine.
The wires are very comfortable. Even with the pads taking up space, they do not make their way out of my IMF. They are narrow and awesome.
The cup straps, I don't think I care for them. I can't get them to lay flat and not twist. I also can't adjust them to a length where they are lying against my skin but not cutting into my inner fullness. I just can't find that sweet spot with them. I believe most of those issues are from breast shape. I have very short roots so I am functionally FoB. The cup straps are laying across muscle for the majority of their length and not across breast tissue. I've seen the bra on women that are more FoT and the straps look a lot nicer. I was considering removing them, but my husband really likes them so I'll keep them, they aren't uncomfortable so it isn't a problem. If I could figure out a way to make them detachable, that would be great.
I bought the underwear in a 38. They fit well, a little loose at the waist, but just right at the back. They are comfortable, but come up a bit high, hitting just below my belly button.

I bought this bra mostly because of the spaghetti straps, otherwise I wasn’t enthralled by the design. Actually the stock photos don’t do it justice. It’s a very elegant bra. It reminds me of the CH Purple that I still regret not having bought. I think it’s even more beautiful and thoroughly designed.
The cut is a perfect copy of the Onyks - narrow wires and open cup. The cup volume is typical for this cut, the band is TTS.
I like the contrast between the black, shiny elements (straps, band, the satin ribbon on and under the cups) and the mat material on the cups. The cups (probably rose) ... are overlaid with a black lace that gives them an elegant purple colour. As always, I find the central bow too big and rather kitsch
Unfortunately, it’s not as comfortable as Syrena. I would like to curse the person who designed these straps and punish her by obliging to adjust them every day to the end of time! They are UNADJUSTABLE without additional tools (they should provide them with the bra). The problem is the sliders are thinner than the straps (also in the spaghetti straps), which makes it really hard to move it. I also find the straps are too thin for this size, hard and overall uncomfortable (which also reminds me of the Onyks). That being said, the band, even though not as soft as in Syrena, is pretty nice and firm.
It feels quite strange to have these additional straps, I’ll have to get used to feel them on the upper part on my breast. I would prefer the sliders less visible or no sliders at all. I'm not sure yet if I'll dare to wear this bra outside with the spaghetti straps showing off.
I actually haven’t decided yet if I’ll keep it (the statistics say I will, I’ve never sent back any of my EM bra so far).
EDIT: I added measurements and they confirm that this bra has very narrow underwires, the narrower of all the CHs I've owned (I took the measure 3 times). Happily there's enough depth in the cup for the breast tissue. That is actually typical for this style which gives a very projected shape.

This bra tecnically fits perfectly!
The wirewidth is acually perfect (wich is very unusual for me!), the strap placement is great, the strappy thing above the cup is easy to adjust and feels comfortable, the cup is nicely low under the arm, the cup is very low covering, wich is hard to find for me, as I seem to have very short roots. So this is all just perfect!
BUT.. under my bigger boob the wire sits painfully on my rib :/ I'm not sure why and I hope it will go away with some wearing and washing!

It's really comfortable and I instantly fell in love with the aesthetic. It is low coverage, which makes me wonder if a larger cup size would be better, but it's not bothersome because the top is very open. Plus it might become too projected and open on top in a larger size. The pictures of everyone else wearing it looks a lot more covered up lol.. Still, I have never seen my profile look so projected. I need more bras that push out my boobs the way this bra does. It has excellent depth at the wire.

This was my attempt at finding an EM bra that was sexy, trendy, and would actually fit without the cookies. The cups are too open on top for my squishy breasts and the extra straps don't stay in place like they are supposed to. I really just can't justify keeping this bra when I would not be able to wear it even for a day. I love how it looks though! Aesthetically, it is exactly what I am looking for but in reality it's not meant to be mine.

I *had* to have this bra because of the little boob strap thingies...but I probably should have just invested in a different bra instead. The cups on this bra run a little bit bigger than previous versions of the CH cut, I find. I had worn Onyx and Lilia in 65F, but this was too big so I exchanged it for a 65E. The cups initially fit a little large on me as well. Because there was extra space in the cups, I was able to move the straps in 1 cm and then the size of the cups fit perfectly. Another thing ... I had to alter were the positioning of the boob straps. My breast tissue is quite flat and high, so the placement where it was originally didn't flatter me. It kept slipping down since I don't have a top of boob where it can rest on. I ended up moving these straps upward of about 2cm, and now it looks a lot better. One last alteration I had to do in order to make this bra fit me better was narrow the gore. The gore on this bra is fairly wide for an Ewa bra, though narrower than most other brands. The band on this bra is true to size for a '30', but firm. I have yet to alter the band.
Overall, I would recommend this bra for someone with fairly projected boobs, with the root height that is medium to short.
