Edit (21 May): SIGH! I've had this bra for, what, a month and a half, and it's already non-wearable without alteration https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The band is already completely stretched out, even though I haven't used this bra on a daily basis, more like once or twice a week. Very poor performance, if you're asking me! And as a result, of course, the band now rides up, doesn't give enough support, and the straps (all stretched out, too) are really digging into my shoulders. I have to correct this bra all the time now when I'm wearing it, and it's a huge relief to ... take it off. Definitely not good https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Changed "Quality" and "Comfort" accordingly.
What a ridiculous adventure of trial and error I have had with this bra for 5 months now! I started out with a 75FF which was waaay (I mean WAY) too large in the band, exchanged it for a 70G which I soon grew out of thanks to breast tissue remigration. Thus I ordered a 70GG, which was insanely large and stretchy in the band, and today, I finally got my 65H.
And... it fits! Thank you dear bra lord! Even here, the band is really stretchy (it stretches almost 20cm!), but luckily the starting point is snug enough, at least for now. As new, I’m wearing it on the loosest hooks, and it’s very comfortable as such. I really hope it won’t stretch out too soon...
If you’re between sizes as I am, do size down and maybe even a size below that. The band is so stretchy I think I could have ordered a 60HH and used it with an extender for a while. Then it would have been just fine, and no risk of stretching completely out of range. Quite a difference compared to the CHP Mak, which would have been insanely tight as a 65, even the 70 is still very snug after some time of wear.
As always with the CHP, I love the shape – round and uplifted, not too projected. The gore lays nice and flat and it’s not too wide for me, but does separate my close-set boobs just perfectly. The straps adjust short enough (yes!!) but are a bit stiff and thus a bit uncomfortable, although not unbearable by any means. Hopefully they’ll soften up. The support is really good.
All in all, it has been worth the almost absurd trouble to figure out my right size, because this is such a beautiful bra and the shape is like tailor-made for me. Loving it <3
