This is one good looking bra. I bought it from another user to give the CHP style a try. As I suspected, it doesn't work for me at all. Right now, I suspect my SM size to be 65HH/J - 70H/HH. Knowing people suggest going up a cup size in EM's padded styles, I thought the 70HH in this bra wouldn't be too far off... except maybe big in the band. Boy, was I wrong.
I would definitely need a 65 in this bra, or a might tighter 70. The band is very loose on me and moves around a bunch. For sure, a true 70/32 band. It's made ...of a nice material though, with the usual 3 hooks.
The cups are either a size or two too big, or the completely wrong shape for my boobs. There isn't nearly enough immediate projection for me, but I suspect too much apex projection/too open on the top. If there were enough immediate projection in a smaller cup, this might work out better. But alas... it doesn't work as is, so this one is going back up for sale. Sad, because I would have appreciated a padded bra for extra warmth in the coming NE winter. Not sure there is one out there for me. Read more 103 more words
I was disappointed that this bra didn't fit. It was gorgeous and made really well. I really liked that the wires overlapped in the gore, so it was narrow enough there. I also really liked the feel of the band (once I managed to get it on... I'm not super coordinated). However, the cups cut in a lot. I'd say they were 1-2 cup sizes too small for me directly post scoop and swoop. It gave a very noticeable and awkward bulge under shirts. My measurements usually put me directly between a 26FF and 26G, so I may be getting into the 26G range, but I'd still say this runs small. It's possible that it's not open on top enough, but the style didn't seem to feel too closed off. The straps were wider than I'm used to, but it was uncomfortable or compromising in terms of fit.
I bought this bra from another member. I absolutely love this bra. The only problem is that its too big in the cups. What I mean is that I have empty space in both cups. Since my breasts are asymmetrical my left breast fills out the cup more than the right does in its cup. I tried adjusting the straps but its still too big cup size wise. I haven't figured out how I'm going to pad each side but its a bra that I am keeping. The empty space in the left cup is less than 2 cm. The empty space in the right cup is less than 4 cm. Edited to add: this is the first Ewa that I have ever owned.
After having some fit issues with CHP Ametyst in 65E, I wondered if going down one cup size would resolve my problems. I tried CHP Cappuccino in 65DD and I must admit that some issues disappeared. First, I don't see and feel a big difference in cup size between 65DD and 65E. When I saw the bra, I thought that the cups had the same volume. The fit is also similar to 65E. The cups run just a little bit lower and there is less projection. I have also a negligible quad-boob effect. The band is still very stretchy and loose, have to fasten it on the tightest hook. The underwires are the same as in Ametyst, very flexible, not very supportive, but curiously the center gore lays flat.
This was one of the bras I ordered when starting the bra journey. Turns out, this is not really a good shape for my boobs. The cups gaped a lot, even while on the left, the bra looked almost too small, as if my boob was going to pop out of it. It gaped even more on my smaller boob. I think this might just not be the right shape for full on bottom boobs. I had it returned.
I have this in a 70G as well. It's otherwise fine, but too small in the cups, so I ordered a 70GG.
It’s still the same, beautiful bra, but wtf – it has a ridiculously stretchy/large band! The band was just perfect in the 70G, so this is a bit bewildering. Even on the tightest hooks it rides up in the back and pulls the straps so close together they are able to slip between my shoulder blades. All in all a very uncomfortable combination, not to mention the lack of support. Hopefully I’ll get away by just narrowing it down... a lot. Edit: Nope. I didn't.
The weird part is that it’s still just fine at the front. The centre gore sits flat against the sternum, and the cups are just perfect (even though for some reason it looks like I’m spilling out in the middle in the picture, but that’s not the case). And I just adore the CHP shape, it’s like tailor-made for me.
I really love the CHP cut. I tried it in a 65DD (30DD) and the fit was good, but the band was way too large, even at the tightest hooks. After much waiting, my 55Fs finally arrived! They fit wonderfully and are so comfortable. The wires are a near perfect fit for my breast root. Eventually I would like to try the PL cut. I like that the gore is not too high, so it sits in a very comfortable place on my sternum. The bra itself is quite smooth under clothes and gives a really nice shape.
Such a gorgeous bra, but it doesn't fit me. I can't fasten the band without an extender, and with an extender, the cups are too big for me. The straps are only half-adjustable but they're very short, so they shouldn't cause problems for small shoulders.
Otherwise a very good bra – support is good and the shape is fabulous, the band is snug enough and doesn't seem to be too stretchy – but now I'm spilling out of the cups as my breast tissue is remigrating back into place https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
