I ordered this bra along with a PL and 3D in the same size (65D) just to get an idea of which style would suit me. The Cappuccino is a sexy bra which looks a bit better in person than it does in the photographs - the only thing I was slightly disappointed about is that the lace pattern on the bra I got differed from that on the EM website and from that on other users' photographs. I prefer the version on the website as I think it looks more delicate than mine, plus the flowers on the cups make it look like my boobs have eyes. ... OK, maybe that's a good thing.
In terms of fit, while the Cappuccino is probably a cup size too small for me (as were the other two bras I ordered) the CHP style is very open on top and so I can get away with wearing it in this size. The band is rather loose in comparison to the other EM bras I've tried, and a 60 band would probably have been better for my 27" ribcage. The wires don't feel quite as wide to me as the PL and 3D styles, possibly because they're a different shape - the wires on the plunges seem more like the 'swoosh' shape of the Cleo Marcie, while the CHP has a U shape like the Cleo Lily. At least, that's my current theory! The bra didn't give me a whole lot of support, which I first noticed when I walked down a flight of stairs and noticed a fair bit of jiggling going on, but it is comfortable.
While the bra is a reasonable fit on me, aside from perhaps being a little small, I wasn't hugely impressed with the shape it gave me - it's one of these 'cakes on a plate' bras which lifts you inwards and upwards rather than outwards. Being small-breasted, this can have a slightly minimising effect. Having said that, the padding on this bra is very minimal, and if I were judging the shape it gives by the standards of an unpadded bra I'd think it were pretty good. I ended up returning this bra as I wasn't quite in love with it enough to keep it, but I would like to try the CHP style again as I think it's a good fit for my shape - I'm planning to order one of the CHPs with removable padding in a 65D and a 65DD. Maybe the "Famme Fatale", if I can get over the fact it's not spelled "Femme Fatale".
