The black mesh detailing over the pink cups is stunning, and reminds me of earlier EM models (namely PL Purple); however, this model has been updated with its bright pink piping above the cups and center bow. The bright pink cups are mellowed by the black mesh, so the bra looks understated sexy. I like it a lot, and appreciate that this is feminine and sexy without venturing into whore couture.
As for sizing, the band is quite stretchy, which works in my favor, as I seem to be between EM 75 and 80 bands. The cups are TTS, and the shape is typical CHP -- round and ...perky.
Though I've never had an issue with CHP straps being too far apart (oddly, I more have an issue with PL bras when it comes to that), I did notice the strap placement more in this bra more so than any other CHP I have owned. I'm guessing this is attributed to the wider comfort straps used. I don't forsee this being an issue, but for those who have had problems with CHP strap placement, be forewarned.
All in all, another great Ewa Michalak to add to my list! Read more 89 more words

Probably one of the sultry-est, sexiest, yet practical bras I've ever seen. Unfortunately, I've grown (again!) and it never fit. 😢 I keep hanging onto it in hopes I'll fit into it once I lose the weight!
Comfort straps...swoon. Not only are the straps beautiful, but also they effortlessly distribute the weight of my heavy breasts. However, the straps are not fully adjustable. The Strap Saver invention instantly remedies my strap length concern. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
Again, I have a gore width obstacle. Comexim remedies this problem with the "narrowed gore" alteration. However, E.M. refuses to customize. Sadly, despite the beauty and support of Kabaretka, my breasts refuse the E.M. gores. Sigh.
This bra incorporates my two favorite colors-- black and fuchsia. It is adorable. The ribbon covered seams add texture and appeal while the deep pink contrasts brilliantly with the matte black knit covering the fuchsia cups. My final E.M....until she accepts requests for alterations.
I had lost faith in the CHP style after trying the Gazeta. But now I'll have to try and order one in the correct cup volume. Definitely need a cup size up in this, but it is a very pretty bra. Once this sells if special ordering is still an option I want to order a 60HH to try.
I want to like this bra more than I do, but Ewa's half cups seem to be hit or miss on me and this one just missed.
It fit acceptably and I probably would wear it if the ribbing on the cups didn't show through every single shirt I've tried with it. Maybe that's a size issue that would be fixed with some shuffling in cup size, but I'm just not interested in doing that.
