I'm in love with this bra! I was so worried that the band would be too tight, or the cups too big, or the straps too wide after my (really long) wait, but everything is pretty much perfect. The band does run a bit tight, and the cups are more closed off than is standard for a CHP. If you have tall roots or upper fullness, size up. They're also a bit stiffer than the other CHPs I own which will make them less flexible in fit. I can't wear this with the removable pads, but I don't think I could size up in the cups without gaping due to my lack of upper fullness. The lift provided by this bra is (as is typical for the style) quite impressive. I really don't know how Ewa does it!
This bra is beautiful in every way possible! It's my first EM and most certainly won't be my last! The fabric is SO soft. I love how firm the band is. I never thought I could get cleavage like this from a well fitting bra. It's a bit small on my larger breast with the cookies in, but my boobs are currently hormonal. I think I could use a tiny bit more projection. I must admit I was surprised by how thick the bra feels (though I haven't tried it without the padding yet). I'm so used to wearing unlined bras. The gore is perfect for my splayed ...shape (a rarity). The straps could definitely be less wide-set; I have to tighten them a lot and angle them in so they don't slip off my shoulders. I was worried the detailing on the cups would stick out a lot under tops, but that's not the case. I'd recommend this bra to those who are looking for immediate projection, narrow wires, and cakes on a plate cleavage. The cups are open on top, but curve in slightly at the edge. I also have the matching panties in size 36 (small). I've never owned such comfy underwear! It fits perfectly and doesn't ride up at all on my wedgie-inclined butt. After all my research and waiting.. it's stunning and it fits. In summation, I feel victorious! Read more 126 more words
I ordered this when it was on promo. The navy jersey material that makes up the bulk of the bra is soft, smooth, and comfortable. The color leans purple, only slightly. The lace trim and straps are a really soft pink (the straps are the same elastic also used on my 65E - Ewa Michalak » Chp Colette (CUSTOM) ). The pom poms used as the accent are a bit darker than the lace. They are sturdy and not fluffy delicate things.
The band is comfortable and TTS/small-ish. It stretches to 28.5" which is pretty usual for my 65 bands. I wear it on the loosest set of ...eyes (out of four) and I'm well supported. The straps are wide and fully adjustable. They are slightly wide-set and may eat the armpits, or slip off of, someone with a narrower frame. The adjusters move easily and do not work their way out of place. The wires are narrow and follow my root very well. They are comfortable and don't rub or slide at all.
The cups are more closed on top than most other CH/Ps. They come in rather abruptly and those that are more full on top my want to go up from their regular CH/P size. I have short roots, so this isn't a problem for me. With the pads you can see a bit of digging in on my larger, left side because of the cut off. This isn't noticeable through a shirt and I wouldn't want to size up.
The underwear are soft and comfortable. They have a nice moderately low rise and do not cut in anywhere. However, there is an issue with my pairs. They're tagged 38s. Which is fine, the two pair I have are actually running small (they measure the same as my 34 Lawenda bottoms), but I ordered 36s. Read more 198 more words
Omg.. I love this bra! It is so pretty, fabulous and incredibly flattering. There's already some amazing reviews on here so I'll try to keep it brief.
The band runs tight! It is more like a 28 band and with the long row of eyes, I can wear it comfortably on one of the inner eyes for needing a 26 band. I'm not sure if that would apply to every single bra, since there's a lot of variation according to measurements on here. Straps are a bit too wide set for me, but that can be easily fixed. The cups suit my shallow FoT shape, this is the typical size I go to for in most Ewa bras and it fits as expected. The gore is narrower than some of the other halfcups, so I am fairly pleased I wont have to alter the width since my roots touch. The only thing I had to do was push the wires towards the armpits, to lower where the wires hit me at the gore.
Klaudyna is such a beauty! It’s pretty, feminine and stylish. The lace looked like a creamy white color in the online images, but it’s pale pink in reality. I would have liked the cream as well, but this is definitely more unique! The center gore is decorated by pale lilac flower details which I adore.
This is my first CHP style. I ended up going with size 60FF which fits me well (or slightly on the smaller side) in the S style. Klaudyna is said to run more closed on top than other CHPs, but it is still definitely roomier than the S cut in the same size. I ...am somewhat FoT, and the cups would still accommodate more tissue than I have. I could probably size down in the more open CHPs. Klaudyna gives a great shape and a really amazing cakes-on-a-plate cleavage. My boobs are rarely this high!
There’s a bit of gaping at the top of the cups if I’m not standing straight, but overall it’s a pretty good fit. The wires could be couple millimeters more narrow, but they’re close to perfect. The band is rather tight for 60, and fits my 26 inch ribcage well on the second set of hooks (out of four). The center gore is quite low for a half cup style, which is great news for my close-set breasts. It tacks perfectly without cutting into my boobs or causing any discomfort. Yay!
If I could change one thing about this bra, it would be the strap placement. The straps are quite far to the sides and although they don’t dig into my armpits, I feel that the cups would fit better if the straps were located more towards the center. The wires feel rather firm for a Polish bra. They are also slightly pressing into my ribs under my breasts, and I don’t know why. This bra cannot possibly be too shallow. It felt a bit better when I wore it with the pads, so I guess that the cups are slightly on the bigger side. I hope that Klaudyna will soften up a bit with wear, since it's absolutely gorgeous!
Pictures are taken without the pads.
Edit June 2016: Nope, the pads don't help. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The wires are nevertheless digging into my ribs. I think I'll need to let this one go. Read more 286 more words
This bra is my FAV Ewa so far!!! I LOVE this bra! And I'm not a big fan of blue, but the soft pink trim and lace overlaying the blue is a PERFECT combo! So pretty! I normally wear a 65FF in the CHP mainly because it's the easier (ahem, lazier...lol) size for me to order than requesting a custom size. But I ordered this bra thru Jaimie at Bra Obsessed and she did all the legwork for me. BTW, I HIGHLY recommend going thru her if you've been interested in ordering Polish/Ewa Michalak (she also has Comexim and Anna Pardal on hand) but have been intimidated by ...the whole ordering process. She is amazing!! And she was SPOT ON with her fit advice and size suggestions for each model I ordered! She suggested I try the 60 band since I'm a true 28, and convinced me to give the 60G a go (good thing about ordering thru her - she does exchanges and returns!!!!).
The 65FF was always a nice fit for me, tho the band was always a bit loose and eventually the back would start to ride up. I also felt like the cups were maybe just a hair too small and if I coughed or sneezed too hard my nipples would pop out!! But the 60G fits like a glove!!!! It's perfect! I'm so happy I decided to take her advice and suggestions!
The cups do feel a bit roomier than I would've expected with the 65FF (I assumed the 60G would be the same) but they add a bit of fullness and give a wonderful lift, and amazing cleavage!! I was easily able to hook the band on the first set of hooks and still get a nice, snug fit. The straps seem to be placed a little better (more inward) on this model than my other EM 60 bands. The gore tacks nicely and isn't bothersome at all.
I really don't have a single complaint or issue with this bra.....yet. I haven't worn it tho, other than to try on. So I'll have to update my review after a full day's wear https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> I also got the matching briefs in an 8 (36) and they look like the perfect size! This set is ADORABLE (and comfy)! And I know I'll be wearing it out!! I'm so happy I found something that works so well and ISN'T Victoria's Secret!!! This bra was worth every penny!!
UPDATE: Finally tried this bra out and wore it all day and night...painfully so, unfortunately https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The gore dug into my sternum something fierce! I still have the nasty indentation mark and it's been hours since I took it off. I never encountered this problem before with my other CHP cuts, so I'm assuming it's due to the 60 band. I would love to swap this out for my usual 65FF!! I feel like the 60G cup is just a hair too big and the band too tight. There isn't any gaping but I feel more secure in the 65FF. I really do NOT wanna sell this bra, it's hands down my fav CHP bra!! But it just isn't working for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 442 more words
I love CHPs, HC, and the Sophisticate cuts. I love the open top, and I usually size down a cup size in the EM CHP to get a little more BAM. This one is from EM's newer collection and we (AEE) lovingly call this the Snow White bra. I love the combination of the navy with the palest pink. I will link a review of this bra on our blog written by yoomee below. If you have any questions not answered in the post, please feel free to let me know https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
This Bra: 75G, Bought used from Reddit Bra Swap My Size: 34G/ 32GG in UK sizes (My snug band measurement is 33" -inches). My Bust Shape/ Type: Pendulous, Inner Fullness/ Even-ish, Avg Proj (I think?), Breasts are very close/touching when supported (due to size & inner fullness).
Pros: Very supportive Great projection Accommodates my inner fullness perfectly--great depth Quality, soft fabric
Cons: Wires come up too high on the side and can be painful, especially when sitting. The wires are just slightly too wide. Seems to create uniboob ppearance under clothes--we'll see.
So finally got my EM Klaudyna.. Its so lovely and so soft! i was so happy when I received it today.. Until I've tried it.. Band is quite tight, the wires dig into my chest..even if i use extender. Just.. it doesnt feel right on me. On the larger brest looks perfect, on the smaller, weird. like it fits but doesn't at the same time. Such a shame as i really wanted it to work. Gives better cleavage than my Owoce Lesne.
My Stats: FOB, projected, close set, firm and dense tissue. Size: Normally 28FF, got this in a 28FF (didn't size up even though it's padded, I believe there wasn't a 28G/30FF available)
Bra Stats Appearance: 3 part blue half cup bra with white lace overlay and pale pink pom poms (I removed the pom poms because I hated any gore details at the time). As others have mentioned, this looks very much like a Snow White bra.
Cups: deep projected cups with narrow wires. The cups are a good fit for my FOB shape. The wires are a bit hard compared to my other EM bras.
Band: very tight! I usually wear this with an extender as the loosest set of hooks are too tight
Gore: gore is of mid height and tacks. Bit of hard tack.
Shape Under Clothing: round shape, definitely cakes on a plate cleavage. I don't feel my breasts stick out as much in the CHP as the PL or S shape. I feel they are closer to my body.
