I have a wide root and shallow boobs. I do need flat cups but not extraordinary wide wires. I almost don't have any volume on top.
The bra has wide soft wires which extend while wearing. The band is quite tight but true to size regardig to the Ewa-System.I'd compare it with a 30 band of Cleos unpadded styles. The cup is shallow and open on top. Both cup and band are true to size.
Really beautiful bra. I like that is has narrow wires, a wider band, and low-cut cups under the arms. When I first got the bra about 7 months ago, I didn't really fill out the cups...or I just filled out one side and used two pads from an old bra to even out the appearance of the other side. Since then, it seems I've had some tissue migration and now the top actually cuts in on both sides. Since it's so open on top, though, I will still wear it occasionally. It also cut in painfully on my ribs under the cups before but now feels fine. It still cuts in on the fronts of my armpits, though.
I got this one from Nsm to replace my 80FF which is too large in the band (both due to stretching and my increasing preference for tighter bands). I really could use a 70H, but because EM's are so open on top & deep, I can get away without noticeable quadraboob. CHP is my favorite style and this color combo is beautiful. I love that it has 4 sets of hooks (all Ewa's should, considering how quickly they stretch).
This bra is gorgeous! It wasn't quite a perfect fit (band one size too big) but I was going to keep it anyway, since it's so pretty, and was "doable" with me. However, I was able to get my hands on the same bra in 70J, so I'll be letting go of this one!
Wow, this is pretty. I feel better-looking when I have this on. I used the suggested sizing from the manufacturer's website for my first order and it worked - although the band stretched a fair bit after a few wearings AND I like a tight band so I'd order a 75G if I was to brave the crazy sizing "system" and order it again. (Measurements were added after wearing several times.) On the first wear, it was firm on the loosest hooks. It took only a few wears to be most comfortable on the 3rd set; fortunately, there is another set left. It's not terribly practical, ...what with the lace overlay and seaming, but did I mention it's pretty? It is extremely comfortable and seems very well made. 3-part vertical seams. 4 - count 'em - FOUR columns of hooks. That's like a unicorn: rare & beautiful. Final analysis: Excellent support, good lift. Glad I got lucky. Matching thong gorgeous. Update: after wearing maybe a half-dozen more times, it's too loose on the last set of hooks https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Dunno if I'll try to find someone to alter it or if I'll list. Update #2ish: I traded with Nsm for a 70G Onyx and 70GG Koktajl, which are both one cup too small, but workable and the bands are perfect on the loosest hooks. I will be sure to stick to 70's or 75's with smaller measurements in EM's in the future, because I've noticed how much they stretch after a few wearings. I will use extenders the first few times if necessary. Note to self (and others). Read more 175 more words
NOTE: I bought this bra used, so the measurements aren't for a new bra.
According to the previous measurements, I thought this one would be a perfect fit, but apparently the band has stretched out a fair amount and is way too big on me now. It rides up at the back and does not give the proper support it's supposed to. I will have to alter it before being really able to wear it.
As I guessed, the cups are just right and the CHP is clearly the shape for me. Loving it!
The straps adjust all the way, which is always a big plus.
I tried this one on to see what it would look like and to find out what size I needed. The band was definitely too big. Even on the tightest hook it would ride up. It felt as a quite comfortable bra and it was very pretty, but the cups gaped at the top of my breasts. As with the CHP Cappuccino I tried, this is not the right shape for my full on bottom breasts.
As I've been going through a bra size change, I simply bought a new Chp Koktajl in my new size. The bra is just as stellar as before! I've said it all before, but here it is again:
- looks: OMG, was my DH's comment, after he rolled in his tongue from the floor and wiped the drool off his chin. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> HP Koktajl's colour + lace is hot but yet still sophisticated and above all, it looks classy in the "Imported!Expensive!" sort of way, execpt that EM bras are very purse-friendly. - shape: rounder than EM plunges, but very front-and-center and gorgeously uplifted. Looks like million bucks under any shirt. - support: solid. No other definition required. - comfort: like all EM bras, the lining/material of the cups is silky soft against the skin and while the straps are sturdy, they don't dig in or scratch. - quality: outstanding. As usual, the sewing is immaculate. This is really a super bra. Get yours while you still can.
