I love this bra! I was pretty excited when my Chp Milady finally showed up being that it took almost a month to get here. But it was well worth the wait.
The Milady is a delightful red color with a black lace overlay. The red is more of a deep blue-red than a bright RED red or orangey-red. The fabric has a matte sheen, similar to the red fabric of the Ewa Michalak S Wiśniówka (345). It is a more subtle choice than using a red satin fabric. There is a little black ribbon with a charm on the gore. The straps are also decorated. The ...cups are lined with soft black cotton. Overall, it is a very elegant, sexy bra.
The band snugness and length is perfect for me. I'm in between band sizes, so it's a nice change to be able to fasten this bra on the loosest hooks and have it be perfectly snug. The cups are also a good length. They go up into my armpits enough so that they reach the tissue there, but they stop short of cutting into my arms. The straps are also a good length, which is a good thing because they don't adjust all the way. They are also not set too wide, something that seems to happen a lot once you hit the G cup range. The Polish brands seem to really know what they're doing in that respect: I have found the straps to be similarly fashioned in Kris Line and Comexim. Just because you have boobs of a certain size doesn't mean you have large shoulders!
My rack feels very ~*Oo La La*~ in the Milady. It gives a lovely uplifted rounded shape, but doesn't give me in-your-face cleavage like the Freya Deco Honey (1254) does. It is a more subtle cleavage. Which is fine! I don't need to parade my cleavage around all the time. But, guys, I'm so in love with this bra that it was a shame to put a shirt on :'( I just want to parade around the house all day in just the bra, ha ha. Read more 254 more words
I would say that this bra is typical in band size (in other words, not tight like many Ewa Michalak bras) and runs about half a cup larger than most other 34H bras. This is based on the fact that I fit several 34H bras in my previous measurements, but I'm now spilling over a bit, while still not quite filling 34HH. This bra fits me almost perfectly.
The my subjective view of the size compared to other Ewa Michalak bras of a similar style is: * 38GG CH Lilia: Milady has same band; Lilia is half a cup larger * ...36GG CH Purple: Milady has same band; Purple is half a cup smaller * 36G CHP Kurczak: Milady has same band; Kurczak is half a cup smaller * 34GG CHP Mak: Milady has same band; Mak is half a cup smaller
It's a very beautiful bra. I have noticed that the lace on the top makes it unsuitable for under tight shirts, as it will be visible. It gives a lovely rounded "purple" shape for me. The straps are only partly adjustable, which could be a problem as they relax over time. There are four rows of hooks (3 hooks per row) so the band should continue to work for quite some time.

This bra is gorgeous! The dark red goes so well with the black, it feels very sexy and lovely. The fabric and even the lace are quite soft to the touch. There's a jewel at the center gore instead of the typical bows, which is quite pretty.
This is my first CHP-style bra and it's pretty nice. I'm very unused to having so much boob hanging out on the top, but I don't feel like I'm going to slip out. That said, I wouldn't choose this bra to go dancing--I'd prefer something a little sturdier and more full-coverage.
The cups are quite flimsy for being of a padded material, but again, quite comfortable. The cups are small on me by maybe a cup size, but it's close enough that I think I'll still wear it. The band is a little bit stretchier than I prefer but it came pre-owned so that makes sense.
Absolutely gorgeous bra and I intend on keeping it.
I got this bra from another user knowing the band would be too tight and having no idea about the cup fit - but to my surprise, it fits!
The band is stretched out due to being pre-loved: according to all the measurements on Bratabase, a 65 EM band is shorter than my ribcage even at full stretch. I'm not sure, if I was to order/buy another EM bra, whether I'd buy a 65 or a 70. I'm currently wearing the bra on the second row (of 4 rows) of hooks, and the band still feels firm and snug and supportive, so it clearly has a lot of life ...left in it.
The cups are pretty much a perfect volume for me. The wires are extremely firm, barely bending when the band is stretched. Looking at the red marks they leave, I think they're too narrow by a couple of mm for me - but they're not uncomfortable at all, never a single moment's pinching or rubbing or chafing. The wire height is a little short for my preference, but they're tall enough to hold everything in place so that's just a minor aesthetic quibble, really.
The gore is PERFECT. I have extremely close-set breasts, and any gore high enough to hold in my centre-heavy soft tissue inevitably ends up sitting on boob and buckling. The gore on this bra is low enough to keep out of my cleavage's way, and the moulded cups are strong enough to stop me spilling too badly.
I've marked the straps as a fit, but I did get a feeling of them being on the edge of slipping off; they never actually did, however.
I'm sure the fact it's pre-loved has a lot to do with this, but this is the most comfortable bra I've worn since finding my true size. I totally forgot I was wearing a bra! All this with a lovely, lifted, round shape that doesn't sacrifice forward projection as the price of a half cup ... !
This bra works excellently for me and I'm incredibly thankful for it. While the wires are slightly too wide by about a half inch to an inch on the sides, it's the most comfortable bra I own and gives a delightful shape. I can wear it all day without wanting to take it off, which speaks volumes.
My only two "complaints' if you want to call them that are that the straps are a bit too far to the sides and could be moved in slightly, but this does work rather well with a few of my shirts. The other complaint is that the ...band is a bit wide under the armpits, but not uncomfortably so, about a half inch to a quarter inch less material there would be fantastic.
The lace adornment is beautiful but it does show under some of my shirts, which is to be expected. I either wear a cami or just decide I don't care if people know I'm wearing a bra. This is definitely my favorite bra... I am not sure if it will be too warm for summer, I suppose we will see.
Overall, the bra, like all Ewa Michalak bras, is well constructed and sturdy while still being sexy. It gives that beautiful "cakes on a plate" look that has grown on me immensely. While I still want a bra that gives me kissing cleavage for some occasions, I enjoy the separation for everyday comfort.
*I'm marking the bra as a fit, because I could deal with the slightly too wide cups if I could find a couple more like it. I have more Ewa Michalak bras on the way, we'll see how that goes.* Read more 187 more words
I have come to the conclusion that the CHP style is not for me. I do best with half cups because I'm full on top. But I have too much projection for the bra and cannot settle into fill the bottom of the cups. The projection causes upsizing to get cup depth, the upper fullness causes upsizing to avoid quad boob. All this plus wide straps and wide wires. So the CHP is not the style for me. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
It is a gorgeous bra, just plain beautiful. But I cannot wear it.
