    I'll be honest: I have no idea what the difference is between the CH and the CHP cuts. I googled it and I can tell something is different between the two I just can't put my fingers on it. I got it off of reddit I believe and it is in great condition. I was wary about how boring I thought it would be since it's "just a nude" but wow-Ewa has a way with bras. It's quite pretty in real life but not too distracting or decorated to not work under a lighter shirt. I love the buttons instead of bows. I can't figure out the ... wrinkles in the cup because I fill it pretty much perfectly. The immediate projection is pretty spot on for me as are the wires. The band is still comfortable snug and the straps are nice and thick and comfy. I get some amazing cleavage out of this, especially with the pads in. I have tall roots, so I almost never get cakes on a plate in a well fitting bra. The gore is low and non-stabby. The cups are nice and low cut as are the wings. No armpit harassment there. The shape is kind of wide from the front, projected from the side and very round. It's a very comfortable bra and pretty much disappears under my clothes. It's a perfect fit, perfect shape, and perfect nude. What more could I ask for?

      CH is a projected (boobs out front) half cup, and HP is a (now discontinued) half cup that brought boobs closer to the chest. The CHP is a hybrid of the CH and HP styles. The HP has been discontinued for a few years since the release of the CHP.

      BumbleBean That makes complete sense. I was surprised by the amount of forward projection.

      So pretty for a "basic" and it looks great on you! :)

    I love this bra so much! It's incredibly narrow and projected with a round shape and low coverage. If you can never find narrow enough wires, look at the CH shape. It hides well under thin t-shirts and works well with almost any neckline. I get amazing cleavage in this. It's very open on top, and would be compatible with tall roots. The straps and band are both thin, which I like for wearing under summery shirts. The band runs a tiny bit more than a full size small. I love this bra!

      I love the Ch cut so hard, I want them all.
      It looks great on you!

    • Thanks! I really really like it! Too bad it's discontinued :/ I love how all of the cup is projected forward and works so well with my natural shape.

    Very short, projected, slightly narrow, center full, close set, even breasts...

    A beautiful man wanted to buy our (daughter and me) lunch. It must have been the bra. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />

    For months, I have wanted a CH: the most immediately projected Ewa Michalak model. The Ch Cherry was available as were condemning reports of its dimensions and durability. I waited. Thank you, vesela_krava for offering Ch Karmelki here!! 80E is a sister size of 65G. After hours researching the measurement tables, I knew a larger band would yield wider cups in a sister size. ... Predictably, the band is a bit big. However, I wore it for four hours, including inside the Children's Museum, and it moved upward one inch. Impressive. This is the first Ewa Michalak that is both short enough and projected enough for my breasts. My only hope is Ewa Michalak produces more Ch models...AND narrows and overlaps gores. Who am I kidding? The narrowing and overlapping alterations will happen only in an alternate universe.

    Still this bra's gore is too wide. But, it appears the alteration will work perfectly. The cup will open and there will be room for cookies in these empty cookie pockets.

    Sincerely, I hope Comexim creates a Ch-like halfcup soon. Comexim beige cookie pocket lining is fabulously soft. Their wires more forgiving. And, their numerous alterations/cusomizations are free....er....have been free. Soon, Comexim will, understandably, charge for alterations. Until then, I will cherish this Ch Karmelki <3

    EDIT: After I narrowed and overlapped the gore, the weight of my breasts shifted. This caused the wire to dig into what I guess is a rib flare. So, I'm removing the alteration and using a "riser" (narrower slice of a thick, hemp cloth diaper insert) to lift the gore. This allows the force to tranfer from the wires into the riser and onto my sternum in a 1/4" wide area. This "riser" is helping reduce gore discomfort in several other bras, too.

    If I were honest with myself, this might just be a half cup too big on me. I normally wear a 30G in UK bras (freya, etc). The band on this runs incredibly tight. It is quite comfortable on me for the first few hours then after a while it starts to dig in. So the 70 in this bra fits more like a 65, in my opinion. Regardless, it is incredibly comfortable and made of delightfully soft materials. It comes with two pads to fix asymmetry, which is quite useful since my right one is slightly smaller. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    My only gripe is ... that due to the cup construction, a lot of weight is on the straps, causing them to dig in if I have them pulled up as tight as I'd like. I also wish the straps were .5-1" over more . They don't chaff my arms, but I am concerned with a lot of movement that they will. Perhaps I'll have to do some bra surgery.

    I'm wondering about the cup size... I'm concerned that if I went down a cup size I'd get a quad boob effect. But maybe I'd feel like I'm more supported? Who knows. I'm still figuring out my Ewa sizing https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    I like this bra quite a lot so far! The beige is a close match to my skin tone, and the detailing makes it cute but doesn't interfere with it being a basic nude bra.

    The top of the cup on my bigger breast cuts in just a little bit after swooping and scooping (without the pads in) and with the pads in this bra is too small. I think I may be between sizes in Ewa Michalak, because that is the opposite of my problem with the PL Mak (with that, with the pads fits perfectly, without is wearable but just a TAD too small).

    The projection ... this bra gives is MIND BLOWING! I like my boobs to look their size, and this bra is doing a great job of not minimizing anything! At the same time, it isn't adding any bulk either.

    The band is very stretchy, and although I wear it on the loosest hook to try to make it last as long as possible, it fits most comfortably on the tightest. I don't think the band will last very long, and next time I order this bra I might get a 26K or KK instead, to extend the life of the bra.

    I can't say too much about the comfort yet, because I just got it this morning, but so far it's awesome!

  7. I was lucky after reading countless online reviews, to guess my Ewa size exactly. And what a payoff! This bra fits like it was made for me.

    In a 65 (30) band, it's nice and firm. Even a couple months after purchase, I haven't felt the need to switch hooks once, so I suspect it's not very stretchy.

    The cups are deep and hold you face forward-I didn't realize how necessary deep cups were to me until I compared this bra to a bra with shallow and wide cups.

    The color normally falls into a category that I call "non-nude nudes" but I was so won over by the delicate detailing ... and the rich color, that I went ahead and bought it anyway. It does not function as a nude bra for me, but it is beautiful nonetheless.

    The construction is good. With so much detailing (on the straps, on the wings) there's plenty of opportunity for a loose thread here or there, but I didn't find any.

    The only thing I don't like is a slight tendency to feel "jiggly." Maybe it's a by-product of wearing bras that don't fit, but I like feeling held just a little closer to my chest. As I understand, Ewa's HP bras do this, and that's where I'll be headed next.

    The band on this is way too tight for me. It's supposed to be a 65, but it seems more like a tight 60. I can fasten it using an extender with 4 hooks, but even then it's tighter than I like. Cups are filled out well, though I feel like they might be a bit smaller than a regular 65G cup. The profile from the front is a bit wider than I like. (This also makes it seem like my boobs are getting in the way of my arms when I try to do stuff.) I like the bra, but it's just not for me.

    Love! The cup is really too small for me, so it's probably true to size. Fantastic fit otherwise. Very comfortable.

    It's sad it doesn't fit me, I need shallower cup without this projection. The bra is so well made, cotton lined and very comfortable. The band runs small and I had to wear it with an extender
