This bra is labeled an HP, but on my packing slip and on some website references, it is called a CHP. It is incredibly beautiful! I would say the actual teal color is only slightly darker than it appears in my pictures. Unfortunately, it does not quite fit. Like my PL Bella, the band rides up over time, and I cannot tighten the straps (without band ride up) in order to decrease the gap at the top of the cup. The calculator on the EM website put me in the 70HH size, but I often need a smaller size than calculators suggest, probably due to my being petite/small ... boned for the curves I carry... I do think it will work during that time of month I need a little looser band and cup. In the future, I will probably order a 30-equivalent band from EM. The bands are firmer than some of my 32s in UK brands, but for me this just means I can get a few hours of wear on the tightest hook before it starts to ride up. Despite the fit problems this bra is amazingly comfortable. The lining is nice against the skin, and the lace doesn't show as much as I feared under clothing. The straps are not fully adjustable due to some gorgeous detailing, but even though I'm 5'3 I don't usually have problems with straps adjusting short/long enough.
