I have been lucky enough to have three of this coveted model pass through my hands.
None of them have been an ideal fit until now, I guess the third time really is a charm.
This bra in this size does not share any of the issues I had with either my 65F - Ewa Michalak » Chp Gazeta (447) or my 70D - Ewa Michalak » Chp Gazeta (447) . It was comfortable from the moment I received it without my having to alter it in any way.
True to the other two bras, this one runs about two bands tight. I get a stretched measurement ... of 28-29" which is ideal for me and makes this fit as my other 65E CHPs without any help from me.
Aesthetically, I love this bra. I'm a huge bookworm and anything with print, literary references, or books is me.
Again, I don't love the hearts, but I do love that they are everywhere.
The band is small, as my other two were.
The cups are narrow and deep enough for me.
Wires are low profile and the gore is comfortable.
The straps are okay. I prefer thicker ones, but these aren't bad.
The little bungee at the strap front doesn't bother me in this size so it can stay. It is stretchy though and I lose a touch of lift leaving them there, but I'm okay with that.
Shape is rounded with decent cakes on a plate cleavage. Not as much as some of my other CHPs because of the straps though.
This is an older model, so it doesn't have cookies or the pockets for them. I am right on the edge of a 65E/65F these days so I couldn't wear them anyhow.
Obviously I love this bra, I've bought it three times!
I'd love to see it come back, or something similar anyway. We need more book/newspaper bras.

I took Ewa's warning on the website to heart and decided to size up in the band on this bra . . . and I'm glad I did. I would say the bra I received runs about a half-size small in the band. There is some inconsistency however, because the 70C I ordered prior to this ran an entire size small. My recommendation would be to stick with your normal band size if you are on the smaller end of the range and to go up if you are in the middle ... to larger end of the range.
Unlike some of the other recent CHPs (Ametyst, Cappuccino, etc), the wires on this bra are VERY strong. Even just trying to pull them with my fingers is difficult - they are very thick and have a nice wide casing around them. So this affects the fit in small ways. First, I think it contributes to the feeling of band tightness. Second, the cups feel deeper and narrower than other CHPs because the wires do not move out at all when you fasten the bra (you can see in the side view picture the wires are still straight up). Effectively, this makes the cup feel about a half-size larger than normal. I think can still make it work (the cups mould to you more after wearing), but it should be noted. I might try a 70D if I decide it is still too large after washing.
Also, the straps are very stretchy IMO. I have to tighten them up quite a lot in order to get a normal strap tension. However, they are fully adjustable so it should be okay for most people.
Now on to the famous fabric! I like this bra because sometimes I like to change it up from a sleek, minimalist style and this is anything but that. This bra is all the things! It is antiqued newsprint fabric, with transparent shiny dots, and lace and ruffles and bows and hearts and it's just FUN to wear. BTW, the lace lays flat under shirts.
The matching underwear runs a little tight also as an FYI. I am literally right between size 36 and 38 and sizing up is definitely recommended.
EDIT: I bought a pair of 40s in the briefs just to see and they fit perfectly! Size up!

Ladies, the next Gazeta just arrived on bratabase! The bra is lovely. As mentioned in other reviews, the band is tighter - although I need only 1 extra set of eyes so its not that bad. The bra is in perfect size, theres no quadboobs like in my 70DD - Ewa Michalak » Chp Stalówka (307) , but shame that I dont get the same effect that I have with 70DD - Ewa Michalak » Ch Owoce Leśne (573) . However, I still love the set! The panties are so cute but very low. Overall, would be very nice to see more bras with 'gazeta' print as it gives something new to each wardrobe!
