This bra arrived with a faulty hook and eye (one was sewn upside down, making the first set of hooks unusable). I can wear it okay on the second set, and it wasn't something I felt warranted a return, but I contacted EM on their Facebook page, just to make them aware.
Gotta say, I'm impressed with their response. Kaska replied right away and offered to make and ship a new one completely. I couldn't really accept in good conscience (it's easily fixable and I don't need two of the same bra), but we made another arrangement and I have to say I'm very pleased. Excellent customer service, ...IMO. I will definitely feel more confident about ordering again in the future.
As for the bra itself, I like the fit! I ordered my usual size that matched what was in the drop-down box, and it seems TTS. The lace trim is a little itchy, but hopefully it'll soften up with wear and a few washings. Great projection, narrow wires, straps are wide but not annoying. I think I could do with the wings being a tad higher (my tail of spence is larger on the right side for some reason, so things tend to poke there even if the left side feels fine), but it's not too bad. Very firm gore tack, hoping that will soften up a bit as well.
Appearance wise, this is adorable! The little buttons instead of bows are perfect, and are a big reason I chose this model to start with. The CHP cut gives me great lift, cakes type cleavage, and a nive smooth look under clothing. Due to the lace, it definitely shows under clingy shirts, but it would probably be an okay t-shirt bra for me.
All in all, while not an ideal first time ordering experience, I'm generally pleased. It's such a cute bra, and I'm thrilled to have it. Read more 209 more words
CHP Myszka is what you would get if CHP Stalowka and SM Guzik hooked up and had offspring. For a little bit, this was available early through Bra Obsessed and I ordered it in January. It came to me a few weeks ago but I've held off on reviewing it for a few reasons. Well, one big reason actually. The bra is messed up. The top embroidery is sewn entirely too tight and it creates an unlovely squared off shape that you can see in the pictures. In addition to this loafy boob, I was quadding out at the center and it was visible through shirts. I gave this ...bra a fair shot. Wore, washed, stretched, nope still square. So I emailed Jaimie and I emailed Kaska with pictures.
I knew Jaimie would give me excellent customer service and she did, I'll tell you about that in a minute.
Ewa's customer service though, well, I didn't know how that would go over. I've never had an issue with them myself, but I've also never had a problem with an item. Ewa is notoriously arrogant and has a reputation of blaming the customer for any fit issues and I wanted to see how they would handle this. Kaska immediately picked up on the fit issue. Outright told me it was an error and that if I sent it back to them that they would try to fix it or sew a new one for me. In addition to that they would ship it back at no cost and give me free shipping on my next order and apologized several times for the inconvenience. Awesome.
Since I didn't buy it direct from them, I went through Jaimie to get it taken care of. She set it up so that I did not have to send my faulty bra back at all, she got Ewa's team to make me a new one at no cost to anyone and I got to keep this one for spare parts. Go, Jaimie!
I am not the only one that had this specific issue with this specific bra. A friend had the same bra with the same fit problem. Her pictures looked just like mine! So, obviously there was an off batch made. Okay, fine. But the way they handled my friend was completely not the way they handled me. They did not own up to their error (the SAME error mind you) but instead accused her of ordering/wearing the wrong size. Wtf? Thankfully, she also ordered hers though Jaimie so Jaimie worked her magic and got her a new one as well. Seriously though, I don't understand.......
Anyway. As for the bra itself, the band is true to a 65, stretchy and comfortable jersey. The straps are wide and comfortable. They are fully adjustable and do so easily. The wires are narrow and short and standard for this size in the CHP. The shape this specific bra gives was poor, but I do have a replacement that I'll review at a later time that is a better example of a CHP. Read more 398 more words
I'm in love with this cut! It gives me a nice rounded shape compared to the S cut and on Kaska's advice I went from a 100 to a 95 in the band size and it stretches to a comfortable size which makes the cups sit better on my chest. Overall, a lovely bra and the CHP is my new favorite shape. What else can I say? Ewa has done it again and I splurged and got the matching thong panties to go with. I will enjoy wearing this bra!
This bra runs a bit taller and shallower than is typical for a CHP. The band also runs small, but feels like it will stretch out quickly. It gives great cakes on a plate cleavage, but it doesn't stay in my IMF like all of my others. The jersey is very soft and comfortable. The matching stringi is amazing, and I highly recommend it. Seriously, the most comfortable pair of underwear I own!
This bra fits like a typical 65G CHP. It gives a great rounded shape and has lots of projection at the wire. The wires are narrow and the straps are nice and thick.
The lace on this bra is rather cumbersome, however, and can be seen through thin shirts. It is just too much lace for me. I may remove the lace to see if it improves the appearance of the bra under clothing.
I got this bra second hand but it's still in pretty good shape. It gives the usual projected and wonderfully round shape that Ewa CHPs are famous for. I love the aesthetics of it too. At this point in time, I would probably fit a 60GG better as this bra is perfect on my smaller side but slightly small on my larger side. It's definitely wearable, though, and still comfortable. I do wish the straps were a bit closer set. The band is very true to size and the straps are easily adjustable and comfortable.
I love the colors and CHP style is my favorite. It holds my girls secure while giving me an extra oomph even without cookies. The only issue is that sometimes I need to rearrange the lace on top of the cups to make it laying flat under fitting clothes. This bra shows up a bit under tight fitting clothes anyway.
Myszka is so bloody comfortable. I'm not sure why, but so far it sticks out as having the softest inner-cup fabric.
Onto the cups. Similar to my Syrena, the original owner received this Myszka with the lace on the left cup sewn too tight. Thankfully it seems to only be the lace and not the cup (unlike Syrena). Until I fix or remove the lace, this means that the left cup runs a good size or more small and the top sort of looks like a muffin top effect. Maybe some other fit issues with the left cup, but I can't say. If it wasn't for the lace ...issue I'd have marked "quality" higher (but I also probably wouldn't have even gotten this bra) The right side seems to fit just like my 55FF CHP Office, which fits typical to CHPs. Awesome immediate projection, maybe a touch wide for me though snugly narrow (oddly, only with CHPs, the flesh right underneath the wires always aches until I swoop & scoop, even though it's well past my main breasts. Post S&S I have no discomfort.).
The wires and gore seem to come up a little shorter - maybe 1/8" - compared to my Office. The straps aren't chafing and are fully adjustable. The lace does show through thin shirts. The band seemed a little tight, enough to hook it a column or two looser than usual on an extender. Not tight enough to make sizing up worth it IMO.
Unsurprisingly, this looks much better in person! Just the little things cameras don't pick up make me love how it looks, the fabrics, shades and decorations ( silver buttons!) seem to fit together so much better than they did in pictures. This seems to be the rule with EM and maybe Comexim as well, that it will look better in person. The gray isn't cool enough to turn straight blue on my warm toned skin, like some grays do. I wish the briefs were still available, but I can't expect it from a discontinued model. The loops attached (and are sewn onto) the buttons on the straps are an excellent alternative to just loops connecting the straps and bra - no extra chafing! The loops add an extra layering challenge with tank tops and spaghetti strap though, I'm not sure I have a single sleeveless shirt that covers them. Read more 289 more words
I knew I was going to get this bra at some point; big fan of greys and the overall look is interesting without being at all feminine. The lines and buttons remind me of a tuxedo, almost. It's like being more than utilitarian but not boring. Overall very comfortable, and the only way I like wearing a molded/padded bra; with seams.
Cookie pockets (and inserts) available to add more oomph but I usually have just one in to correct asymmetry.
