I own 3 CHP bras: Gazeta, Brzoskwinka, and the Marcepan. Compared to these, I agree that the cups on this run bigger (they're a bit taller) and the band runs very tight compared to other EMs. This is labelled as 65E/30E and it fits like a 28F. The band stretches to 27 inches, so please keep this in mind. I have a 25.5 inch underbust, so 27 is perfect for me. Although the cups are a lot taller compared to other CHPs, I feel like it is a bit more closed to on top due to the black ribbon border and the ruffles. The ruffles don't show up under ...my thick T-shirt, however. I'd say the Gazeta is better for even to full on bottom shapes, even though I would normally say that CHP is better for the not extremely FoT, even, and full on bottom shapes. As always, CHPs give a wonderful "apple" (as Ewa describes), round shape. This is definitely not a minimizing bra. The looks of this bra, of course, is AMAZING and EM bras as always are very very high quality. You can't buy bras like these in most typical full bust stores. It may be expensive, but EM is sooo worth it. I never get pokey wires and the fit is ALWAYS en pointe. Definitely one of my favourites! Read more 113 more words
*Pictures show altered strap design* Love the design of this bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Made of lovely material, also it smells a bit like old newspaper when it arrived X) Band runs snug, not sure if I could've gotten away with my true size or not. Cups definitely run one size too big, and are wide in this size. The straps feature a stringy detail where it connects to the cups, I have taken this off as it grated into my armpit, and is now really comfy. Only other problem was that the red hearts were stitched on rather shoddily so had to redo them myself.
Brand new, wear testing. Very firm band for a 65, with very little stretch. Has cute detailing at the straps that is horribly uncomfortable. Material is pretty, much prettier in person. Inside stitching is not pretty at all, I'll try and get a picture of it.
The band is snug like a Cleo 30 band. The straps are fully adjustable, that's always good. It has 4 rows of 2 hooks each.
The cups have these shiny invisible dots.
The cups are sponge molded, which is the cup that I prefer compared to the Freya Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234) kind of molded cups. The cups are perfect width for my boobs. It follows my breast crease perfectly. Just where it is supposed to be.
I've never experienced strap gate, so I could not tell if this bra's straps are too separate, I can't really comment on that.
People keep saying that this model runs one cup bigger than others, but I find that this my proper G cup size for Ewa Michalak . I certainly don't find that it runs large in the cup what so ever.
The shape is superb, it is round forward. It gives you nice cleavage and it does not show under clothes either.
Very comfy! Gives a wonderful shape -- I wish there were more CHPs around. I love it so much aesthetically, I'm probably going to buy another as a replacement. The band runs really tight in mine and the cups a tiny bit big-- it says 70C, which translates to a 32C, but I'm at the full end of 28E right now and it fits like a glove. Some parts of the detailing seem a little cheap but I haven't found anything else like it before.
This just isn't my size. Once I received it I realized my mistake in size conversion (even after thinking it was just barely in my size range). Depending on the day, I can fill out the middle and bottom of it, but my roots are far, far too short and without enough upper fullness. Perhaps I'm simply too small. No matter how I cut it this would be a full coverage, and has been on the few days I've about fit it. Once I get some more sewing practice I plan to alter the cups.
Aesthetically it's stunning. I wish I could go back in time and order a few of these and Famme Fatales. Certainly with matching briefs. Probably the only bra that would break my unwillingness to order from Ewa, I would order a re-release or similar bra in a heartbeat.
I got this one after my 70DD was kind of good but had little quads when I was selling it. Also I was wondering hot the 70E in chp without cookies would fit me - and it didnt. While the band and width in cups were perfect - it is too deep and im gapping a lot in it - one size exactly. The bra came without this big bow in the middle. Also the condition is used, however still plenty of life left.
I've been holding on to this one in the hopes that my boobs would magically change shape and then the cups wouldn't be too tall for me, because it's SUCH a great print/design. But sadly, not meant to be. Ewa's "CHP" cuts are just too tall (or possibly deep, or both) for me. Le sigh.
