    75F

    Fits

    Ooooooh this is nice! And it came faster than anticipated, which is a bonus.

    I tried a CHP before in 75FF, but found it underwhelming in the cleavage department. This one, however, does exactly what I expected in the first place. It gives me cakes on a plate cleavage, with a round and slightly minimised profile. To my surprise, it doesn't push my boobs outside of my frame from the front, which is another bonus.

    I've known that half cups suit me even before I discover proper bra fitting, but, since my first bra fitting successes were mainly of the unlined balcony variety, I kind of forgot how great ... half cups can be. It's nice to now have a bra option that doesn't project my boobs that far forward but up and to my chest for a change.

    The bra itself lives up to its name; it looks like something that could be on top of a pale pink wedding cake. The seams are slightly visible through clothing, but not as much as the last CHP I tried (the Noir). It's comfortable to wear, and the band is perfect. I was surprised to find it has just 2 hooks & eyes, instead of the 3 I'm used to from Ewa, but perhaps that's due to the smaller cup size?

    I'm so happy I retried the CHP. In the right size it really does amazing things for me. I have 2 Comexim half cups on the way too, so when they arrive I'll do a proper battle of the padded Polish half cups post ;-)

    ** ps: I've noticed that this bra seems to push my boobs together more than any other bra I own, more than my plunges for example. It almost seems like the gore is on my breast tissue, which is impossible, because my boobs are set quite far (3+fingers) apart. So how does that work? Is it because this bra pushes my boobs so far up? It's not uncomfortable...

      Gorgeous! I thought I had wide-set breasts until I discovered Polish bras. When lifted, I'm close-set...

    • 1

      perhaps that's it DressTheTwins. When I hand bra (that's a verb now) I can't get my boobs to touch without lifting them (well, they touch, but notbin a good way, more like they fold), but when I lift them they do get closer together. Who knew?!

      ChestyLaRue Good review, Charlotteke . Not only is this 75F CHP gorgeous, it gives you a terrific shape! I'll look forward to your battle of the Polish half cups. DressTheTwins is correct that the shape you get in a bra is the one you have to analyze for when choosing bras. By that measure, CHP is your cut!

    65E

    Didn't fit

    My shape is low set, narrow and short rooted, and slightly pendulous.

    This bra, just like my other new 65E - Ewa Michalak » Chp Oksana (1029) , fits and doesn't. The cups lift and round the breast tissue nicely, exposing the top half of the breast. i sized down from a 65F in order to wear this bra without cookies. 65F chps tend to gape slightly because I have short roots with little upper fullness. In this size, I have to stuff my larger breast into the cup, and then I get a bit of side boob spillage. As soon as I move around, my left ... nipple sticks out a bit... I'm in between a 65E and 65F apparantly... Maybe the chp just doesn't work for me after all?

    the material on this bra is soft cotton on the inside, and a soft satin-feeling cup on the outside. The upper cup is lined with lace, but the lace doesn't close off the cup edge at all. The center gore has a medium sized bow with a crystal. There are no bows on the straps. Straps adjust long enough for my low set/tall frame, and the band is snug and slighty stretchy. There are 4x2 set of hooks. The colour is a pale pink, which will probably function as a nude for me in the colder (not tanned) months.

    overall this is a pretty bra that creates good cleavage.

    70F

    Didn't fit

    So delicate, luminous, and beautiful! The details are subtle and understated: color matched lace trim along the cups and a 1/8" circular rhinestone gem dangles just below the color matched bow at the gore. This is a suitable nude for my very pale skin. The seams do show under thin knits, but they are beautiful to behold--like sun rays. Under a slightly heavier knit shirt, the seams were invisible. This CHP has cookie pockets that "load" from the inside which prevents the pocket seams from irritating breast tissue. But, inserting the cookies requires more effort. If I had not recently purchased a 70FF CHP, I would think this was too large. But, I need the immediate projection in the 70FF to avoid smooshing my tissue into the wires. Thankfully, now I know how to avoid that unpleasant sensation. :-) And, I understand why cookies yield no results for me: they simply fill the empty space in the bottom of the cup that I can't fit into.

      Looks great! I really want the BM style of the magnolia. That lace is just so gorgeous.

      It is a very lovely bra :-) I look forward to viewing photos of your E.M. BM. :-)

    70DD

    Fits

    I got this in a swap from another user.
    I'm not normally a pink girl, but I like the soft color of this bra. It doesn't function as a nude for me though, it's very much lighter than my skin and behaves like a white bra against my body. The entire bra is the same shade of powder pink. The bra, the lace, the bows. All the same, but it's very girly and quite pretty. I do not care for the rhinestone charm in the center (I will probably remove it), but that is also very simple and understated.
    This is the third entry for this bra in a ... 70DD, all three entries are for the same bra which makes the stretched band measurements really interesting to me because I could only get 29" before the wires started to distort on me. Because it goes to 29" and not the 31-32" it should I can wear this without alteration and without it riding up. It is very soft and stretchy though, and I don't know how long that will be true for. Fortunately, this is one that has four sets of eyes so yay for longevity!
    The straps are wide and fully adjustable. They're soft and comfortable and the sliders adjust easily and stay in place.
    The wires stay in my root and encase me perfectly and don't bother me at all throughout the day.
    Another CHP win for my drawer.

    60F

    Fits

    Purchased pre-owned but barely worn. So soft on the inside and outside; even the straps are soft. The colour functions as a nude bra for me. Band is firm and I can start this bra using the longest hook when wearing on my 26" underbust. Very open on top shape. I feel a great deal of outer side support that I don't normally notice in bras, as if the cups are really directing all my tissue front and center and uplifting it. The gore is low enough to not interfere with my uniboob situation. The cup height is a half-inch too short for my much larger side, so I do feel a bit of instability/exposure there, but it's not a deal breaker.

    Hasn't set fit

    This is a lovely pale pink bra with pretty lace and a rhinestone gem in the gore. There is also a large bow that I would remove but I'm not big on large bows between my boobs. :-) Also they look silly under t-shirts. The fabric is soft and there is a white cotton lining with cookies.

    I can't comment on the fit since the cups are too large and CHP is not a good fit for me.

    • If you are planning to sell rather than exchange, I might be interested -- I have been eyeing the Marcepanowa.

    • Returning to Poland seemed to challenging and I would like to sell it. I haven't sold any bras before but I think I would have to list it first?

    • I think so. I am not familiar with the process, really - I bought a bra here but have never sold one.

    • Ok I listed it :-)

    • Messaged you! :)

  7. I loooove this bra! I'd been lusting over it for months and I finally ordered it through Jaimie at Bra Obsessed back in February (I'm lucky enough to live in the same city as her)! Obviously the 60 band was custom, but she didn't charge me any extra (we're both morally opposed to Ewa charging extra for small bands). Unfortunately I can wear this on the third and fourth hooks already (the two tightest columns) so I'll be ordering all my Comexims and EM's in 55 bands from now on. I think EM is trying to make their bands more true-to-size lately, but this is just a rumour ... I've heard. No sources unfortunately. But anyway, the band still fits great even on the tightest hooks, and the material is super soft and breathable. The wire width is perfect, the cup depth, apex projection, and immediate projection are perfect, and I think this might be my HG cut! The gore tacks nice and firm, and is super narrow. The styling itself is beautiful, and I couldn't be happier! It's light enough that it functions as a nude for me (in fact it's slightly lighter than my skin tone) but it's great for wearing under lighter and slightly sheer tops. The only qualm I have (besides the band length) is that once in a blue moon, the right underwire digs into my ribs by the end of the day. I'll have to take some notes on when it happens, but I have a suspicion that it might be when I'm on my period and I'm feeling slightly more bloated/swollen/sensitive than usual. So it's probably not even the fault of the bra, it's probably just my own sensitivities.

    • Judging vom the side view I recommend you to go one cup size down in this style. A CHP is not intented to have that much coverage. It still works though, but you would have a better fit overall in the smaller size.

    • Marveille Thanks for your input, but this review is from over a year ago. I've gained a little bit of weight since I first got it so now it's the proper amount of coverage (ie. less than what these pictures show).

    I don't think I'll ever find a perfect bra, but as far as padded ones go, I think I've come as close as I'm going to get. This is the first bra where I've been gleeful after trying it on.

    The bra itself is this lovely pale peachy-pink. The top of the cups are decorated with matching lace trim, and there's a matching bow on the gore, as well as a tiny little gem. On me, the color can almost pass as a nude, which is great. The color and the simplicity of the bra itself I really like; it's not exactly sexy, rather more elegant. I approve. ... Also, it's a vertically-seamed halfcup so it just looks lovely and gives amazing cakes on a plate cleavage which I love. To quote my husband, "holy crap, you have a shelf".

    As far as the fit goes...okay, it's not a perfect fit. It is actually a bit too small in the cup; the gore doesn't quite tack (there's about a finger-width of space) and when I push it down I get some very minor quadboob on my larger breast when the inserts are in. With the inserts, however, the cups are just about the right height for my super-short roots. I can sacrifice the gore tacking for this bra. Without the inserts, the gore still doesn't quite tack but I don't get quadboob when I push it down, though the cup is also too high on my smaller breast. So, inserts are staying in. I think that if the wires were a bit firmer (I like the nice super-firm wires in Panache bras) I wouldn't have an issue with it not tacking.

    The band is a true 38 band - I measured it stretched at just over 38 inches. I think that for further EM orders I may go down to 36/80 bands. The four columns of hooks means it will be a very long time before it stretches too loose for me to wear, however. The wires are a good width, the gore is just about where I like it to be, and the sides are a good height - no armpit stabbing! Always a plus.

    As far as downsides go on this bra - the edging on the straps, while pretty, makes it difficult to adjust them (I have this problem with my 85GG - Ewa Michalak » Chp Owoce Leśne (573) as well). The other thing that was immediately noticeable to me is that the inserts themselves leave some unattractive lines and lumpiness on the front of the bra. I don't imagine this will be visible unless wearing an incredibly tight t-shirt, but even so.

    This bra makes me happy and I am happy with it.

    • Wow, this definitely looks like your best fit! So happy for you!

      (funny that your hubby was excited about the 'shelf' - i kinda hate that look on me, but what can you do)

    • 1

      Thanks! :D

      I'm not gonna lie, I kinda love the boobshelf look on me. Even if it looks almost comical because of how projected and short my boobs are. It's hilarious and great.

    • I got upset when I was trying on nice clothes for my mom's 80th birthday party, which is a fancy affair. The boob shelf does not look elegant . . . hilarious and way better than ye old saggy-boobs-in-the-belly-button, yes. But not elegant.

    • I would also recommend getting an Ewa extender if you order the 80. Sometimes they're 36 sometimes 34ish.

    • How different are their extenders? My fiolecik or whatever has been fine w a regular 3-hook one

    • I've got a big bag of extenders (cheap ones I bought on amazon to pad up an order to free shipping :P) and they fit my EMs no problem.

    60F

    Fits

    This is a great bra. It fits really well without the cookies, with just a hint of quad boob on my larger side. I think the CHP is a good style for my breasts, which are narrow rooted, very projected above the wire, bottom and centre-full and very soft. It gives a very rounded and lifted silhouette, which I like. The fabric is soft and pretty and the straps are comfortable and easily adjustable. Even though the cups are quite narrow, they are still a bit wider than I need and the wings rub into my armpits a bit. I could also go a bit tighter in the band, so a a 55FF or G might be even better.

    90F

    Didn't fit

    I made the mistake of having someone help me measure who HATES bras so my measurements were way too loose. I'll be exchanging this for a better size because it's gorgeous and will probably be super comfortable. The other 90F I received, though, fits nearly perfectly, so I wonder if this was just an *especially* stretchy band.
