The CH is my favorite padded cut. It's so comfortable and has such potential to be totally sexy. When I grew out of my DD I was pretty upset, but Ewa still had this E in her shop so I scooped it up. It's still soft, it's still comfortable, everything that I said before still stands, except this one fits.
If you look at the pictures, DD vs this E, you can see that the cleavage in this one is so ...much more dramatic even though this is a cup size larger.
ETA: This is borderline small when I took these pictures. You can see my left side bubbling up on the side shot, even without the pads. I get very swollen the week before my period which will generally bump me up a cup, this is when the pictures were taken and this is how all my 65Es fit at this point in the month. I expect this to fit like my other 65Es the rest of the month. I just wanted to pop that disclaimer in here because the photos do make it look too small. Read more 107 more words
The bra. It's really nice. Obviously pieced well and sewn with care. I have the 65DD and it's a good look. Nice round up front profile. My gore doesn't quite tack though, and I'm not sure if it's overall just a tad too small or if it's lacking enough projection along the gore. I also totally have period boobs right now and this may fit better next week. Either way, if I put the pads in, I'd spill right out. It's really comfortable, like almost Comexim level. Cleavage is like "whoa". Seriously, my boobs look amazing and I feel a little Mulan Rouge. The band is snug on the ...loosest of four eyes without being tight and the straps feel nice. The front of them is padded and thick. They're really soft and distribute support wonderfully well. The back of the straps are stretchy and seem to keep the adjuster in place decently. They are only half adjustable, which is annoying for me because I'm high set. I'll have to alter them at some point, but not yet.
Okay, so briefs, size 38.
~38" wide hip ~31" hipbone ~24" natural waist ~28" underbust
I'm fairly long-waisted for 5'4" and these come up to the bottom of the bra band. It just shows the tiniest bit of skin between the gore and the top of the briefs. They are soft and comfortable and don't dig anywhere. They have mild flattening qualities in the front panel, but nothing like real shapewear. They're a bit difficult to tug on, the top has that thick elastic and it didn't want to pass over my bum. But once on, they're fine. They come off fine too. They are *warm*. Totally inappropriate for current weather, so they're going in my drawer for now.
I'm not really a pink girl. Especially not a hot pink girl, but I like this. The black netting really tones it down and it's more of a juicy raspberry color than an "OH MY EYES" hue.
Update 12/20/2015: Unfortunately this bra no longer fits me well. I've gotten firmer and this bra does not accommodate that at the wire. The gore doesn't even pretend to tack and my breasts do the best they can to climb out of the cups. My breasts are pushing the bra down out of my IMF and it sits on my ribs and causes pain. I'm collapsing the cup at the bottom and the band feels too tight. I have gained just enough size and enough firmness so that the DDs I could previously make work need to go to a new home. On the bright side, I was able to order this in a 65E, so I will still have this lovely set.
