So at some point, I'll write a real review, with non-grainy pictures, but I love this bra so much I had to share. I wasn't sure about how the CHP would work for me, because I've heard that it's shallower, wider set, and more open on top than the other EM cuts. This particular model does not have pockets for cookies. The wires on this (at around 4.7 inches) are perfectly narrow and there is considerable immediate projection. The cups are fairly open on top, but they're cut very low so they should work with a variety of shapes. I would say this is on the smaller side ... for me and if it did have cookies, I would likely not be able to wear them. There is a LOT of cleavage going on with this bra. I'm used to a lot more coverage from my well-fitting bras, but I believe this is how CHP is supposed to fit? It gives a nice cakes on a plate look that would be lovely under a scoop neck. I was worried about the center gore on this bra, but it's actually not that high. It comes to around 2.1" which is really fairly standard and the wires do cross at the top.
The straps are wideset and very stretchy, but the bra is made well enough that they don't really need to do much. They're a bit annoying being so wide, but that's what I get for buying 30s when I wear a 26. It's definitely a weird strap design, because they're quite thick but yet not supportive because they're elastic on the front. Is this supposed to be for comfort?
The design of this bra is absolutely gorgeous. I love mint green so much and my pictures definitely don't do this beauty justice. The floral appliqué at the top looks high quality and is very unique. This is the kind of bra that deserves to be shown off! The back of the bra is just a plain, ballet back in the same color with a 2x3 fastener. The band is very tight for a 65 as it stretches out to a maximum of around 28.5 inches. Of course, this is still too large for me, but it means I only need to do a little alteration. I can comfortably wear the bra on it's tightest hooks and will probably wear it on the middle hooks for less active days. The band fabric is also very stretchy and the fabric is very soft (almost VS levels of band softness).
Overall, I'd definitely be interested in trying more styles in the CHP style. I appreciate the very narrow cup width, immediate projection, and Marie Antoinette cleavage.
