Brzoskwinka (Peach) is a discontinued CHP from 2012. The cups and main portion of the band are a peach (surprise!) satin. It's softly shimmery. The front of the band to the wings is a cantaloupe colored lace. It's the same lace used on my prototype 65E - Ewa Michalak » Hp Melon. The straps and 2x3 fastener are a pastel pink leaning peach.
The band is nice and firm. It's comfortable on the loosest set of hooks, it's just right. The straps are a good width and have a comfortable amount of stretch. They don't dig, are fully adjustable, do so easily, and stay in place. The wires ...are perfect. They don't slide, dig, or do anything they shouldn't. They encase my root well and stay put all day long. I don't notice them. The shape is great. Projected to the front and nicely rounded. The cups are a bit lower coverage and come in more than some of my other CH/Ps. The satin ribbon binding along the top edge slightly presses into my tissue causing a bit of bubbling. It isn't noticeable under a shirt and is barely noticeable without. I'm fairly even with short roots, so I'm able to wear this in my usual size. If I were FoT or tall rooted it would be too small for sure. There are no pockets for pads, not that I could wear them anyway.
It's a lovely bra in its simplicity and I'm happy to have it. Read more 135 more words
I bought this bra second hand from a long line of people who couldn't get it to fit them properly. I must be lucky! This bra fits nearly impeccably. The band is fantastically snug, which is to say hilariously tight for a 60 band. It measures ~64cm/25.5" stretched, so that's what I'm gonna use as my ideal stretched band measurement. The wire width is a little too wide for me, but I can handle it. The cups are more closed on top than recent CH/CHP styles, but somehow it works for me. It's very projected, and I actually feel like the cups soften by the end of the day so my boobs end up a little lower in profile. The gore tacks. It definitely gives Marie Antoinette-esque cakes on a plate cleavage. It's fantastic. I've ordered the CHP Marcepanowa Magnolia through Jaimie at Bra Obsessed in a 60FF, so we'll see how it goes when it gets here!
TThis shape is much more compatible with my boobs than the PL's are. Though it is too small for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I think the band runs a bit loose. This gives the nice, uplifted, narrow shape and firm support as the CH's. The bra is way more beautiful in real life - I hadn't seen the sheer lace at the wing on the site, so it was a nice surprise. The lace is slightly more orange than the cup, and it all looks very nice. The inside of the cups are pink, and the outside is soft shiny peach colored. I had thought I could use this as a 'nude-ish' bra (for opaque white tops and not completely opaque colored shirts), but it really is too bright for that (for my skin tone at least, which tends to have golden undertones, rather than pink)
This is my friend's bra, I added it here for measurements and to list it. I additionally tried it on, out of curiosity https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I remember this bra running small in cups and this one seems to confirm this. Even though it's too big in cups for me, it's not a whole cup size (it's 65FF sister size while I would normally need 65F). The band is too large but it could be wearable. I like the straps, they're very large and comfortable. The reason why it feels too big is the cups and the gore height. The gore doesn't tack, I don't quite understand why. The cups run too high under my armpits and I couldn't definitely wear it.
Unfortunately, even though this one supposedly runs small, it's much too big for me in 60FF. The cups do seem shorter than typical for a CHP. The color might work as a nude on pink undertoned (or orange undertoned skin tones). It's almost like a pastel coral color IRL. As an older style, the band runs a bit tight and the cups do not have the pads that are standard of new CHPs. The straps are fully adjustable and the cups are of the incredibly soft foam Ewa used to use. I wish this one had fit me! It's so hard to find used bras in her custom size range.
Soooo pretty; received from remula (thanks!). On my first wear, I needed an extender. But, even more quickly than is typical for EM's, the band stretched enough on that one wear that I wore it on the loosest hooks the next time. The cups are deep & open so I can get away with wearing it, but they're really one size too small. My boobs push the wires away from my body at the bottom of the wire, so I really need to ratchet down the band and it results in a little quadraboob when I move in some ways. The straps are curiously wide-set on this bra, even by EM standards. I have shoulders like a quarterback, so it's not an issue for me, but I bet it would be uncomfortable for the normal or narrower-shouldered. I should probably list it and use the cash to buy an HH, but it's such a lovely peachy pink, so comfy, and is pretty practical for most clothing applications. The CHP is my favorite style.
