Bought this bra on a whim wanting to try a 60band because my 65s are so loose. I was pleasantly surprised that the band fit so well. The cup fits good to going from a 65FF to a 60GG (I know sister sizing is off by a cup but it was the closest size that was on the Black Friday sale) the only down side is the cup is taller then I'd like. Overall I'm very impressed and will be ordering 60bands as much as possible in the future.
Another CHP win from Ewa Michalak. The lace detailing is much more beautiful in person, and the fabric lining the cup behind the lace is a gorgeous, pearlescent taupey beige, rather than the matte beige on most of her black lace bras. The cups' lining in back is matte black, though.
As for sizing, the band is tighter than my black banded CHPs (75GG - Ewa Michalak » Chp Kabaretka (646) , 75GG - Ewa Michalak » Chp Fiołkowy Koktajl (587) , etc) have been coming out lately. It's not worthy of sizing up, but something to note. I much prefer this tighter 75 ...band, because it's still comfy and I know the bra will last longer. For the cups, I had slight quadding in my larger breast, but was remedied with more scoop and swoop, and loosening the strap on that side a bit. Not worthy of sizing up, but something to note. The shape is otherwise typical CHP.
The only thing I can fault on this bra is I'd prefer the lining on the gore 'window' be lighter to better match my skin. But I'm uber pale, so I can't fault EM for that.
Yay!!!! I'm surprised you took so long to try a 60/28 band! Most women with a heavier/larger bust pick a smaller/TTS band in comparison to people in the smaller cup range. A women with a UB of 28" and a A-DD cup generally go for 65/30 bands, while a women with a UB 28" with cup sizes E+ tend to go for the 28/60 bands. Glad you found such comfort and good fit. Perhaps one of Ewas other styles would be better as I know quite a few of her styles have nice short cups!
I'm surprised the cup depth is only 9.5" on this one! My 60FF CHP Marcepanowa Magnolia is around 9" cup depth, and it's a whole two cups smaller than yours! Regardless, I'm glad your risk paid off :)
LeProfessor I kept hearing that her 60 bands ran small but even on a brand new EM 65 band it on the third tightest out of four hooks. Plus it's so hard to find the 60 band because it's a custom order.
@sherrach898 I might need to remeasure because that does seem shallower then it should be but I was shocked at how well it fit considering I skipped a cup lol.
I usually go for 65 bands since she charges a fee and I can sew and customize it to exactly how tight I need the band. In the past I've gotten 50, 55, and 60 bands and the 50 and 55 were waaay too tight. But now, I think they run more true to size. I recently bought a 60F and it's definitely more like a 28, which is too big for me >:( And I paid the $5 extra lol
