This bra is about a cup size too big for me and at least a band size too big too - it rides up even on the tightest hook. I think a 30 J would be better, however, I think I'll experiment with plunges in the future because I would like a more lifted centered look. That said, The shape I get from this CHP isn't bad at all.
As they are too big - I had to tighten the straps all the way. It didn't hel - you see how streachy they are.
I totally get why they don't do this style in larger sizes - I feel ... it would colapse under bigger breasts, and under mine it's kind of borderline happening. In the picture you see the fold near the wire - this is what I mean.
The cups are not very nice too touch from the outside, they actually make a shhiiishhhhhhhhhh sound when I go over them with my hands or when I move around in a tight top.
But the are quite comfy from the inside - I understand now why some women say that with Ewa they sometimes forget that they are wearing a bra.
I knew the 32 would be too loose for me and it is. It's about the same kind of loose like a 32 freya antoinette.
The edges of the band, much like the antoinette are qiute scratcy - this is why I could never forget to be wearing this bra. - This got better with wear!
I tried it on the loosest hook and it was too loose, however I discovered something quite odd. They were stingy with the material that covers the metal clasps - when I moved around I could feel the clasps hurting my skin. This was corrected with moving to tighter hooks. However, I have no idea how I would solve this is fthe band fit on the last hook.
Other than that, the band doesn't create much bulging in the back.
Semi adjustable - not a plus for me. But when adjusted, they stay put. Streatchy too. Quite comfy otherwise.
I was suprised at how far up they went - kind of pokey under my underarms. - This doesn't get better with wear.
The gore LAYS FLAT. It is quite high so It needed some getting used to - but, but this alone is a first for me - very narrow underwires and a biggest plus for me.
They show. They really really show. No tight tops or thin knitware with this one. Im wearing a cami and a cardigan and I can stil see them.
Maybe it's just that I'm not used to seeing vertycal seems.
Most like Cleo Lucy - not as mindblowingly uplifting like some other styles, but nice, round shape. Not as centered as I'd like, but far from east- west look.
I was afraid the padding would add bulk to the chest, but actually it's quite the same as the unpadded Lucy.
I felt the PL style is more supportive. I can't judge this fairly because It's too big so I get the jiggle. More supportive than Cleo Lucy though.
Disclamer: I would have *NEVER* bought this one if it wasn't on sale.
"Meh" would be a compliment.
I think it actually looks quite cheap. A bit like a little peasant girl going for the roll in the hay. I don't think my boyfriend will apreciate this either.
The quality of the material isn't nearly as good as the pl burgund I have tried.
The pale blue color is really not me, but I figured I could remove the horrible lace details (the lace trim is really f*ugly IMHO) and use it as a T-shirt bra that could work even under white shirts..
Guess what? No can do. The lace is sowed in like there's no tomorrow so it can't be done without damaging the bra. Even if I did manage to do it - this wouldn't go well under a shirt because of the seams.
I can't return it but I might list it on Bratabase for exchange. It's wearable for PMS. Quite comfy too - fell asleep in it watching tv, didn't hurt me at all.
