My shape is short and narrow rooted, soft, and low set. All pictures are with cookies in.
This bra has a black lace over a beige underlining. The straps are their standard straps that are seen on some of the other models. They are a little stretchy but still provide full lift. Straps are also fully adjustable. They do sit over my tail of spence, as most bras do, but I don't find them irritating. They have a nice soft inner lining on the straps that makes them comfortable.
The cups come with cookie pockets and cookies, which are set in the lower bottom half of the cup (not over ...the entire cup like EMs pl). I'd almost consider the cookies half cookies. I did try putting two cookies in one side to deal with my asymmetry, but it was too hard to stuff 2 cookies into one pocket, and it gave the bottom of the cup an odd shape, which you can see in one of the pictures. All pictures are shown with a cookie pocket on my right side.
The shape this bra provides is rounded, uplifted, and exposed on the top of the breast. I love the CHP shape, and it looks great under a tshirt. Unfortunately, I probably could have gone with a 65E in this bra, as I do get some small gaping on my right side (and a teensy bit on my left). I would have preferred to wear this bra without cookies. The cups are just slightly a couple mm taller in this bra compared to the chp opium I also got.
The band is nice and snug, and fits my 28"-29" rib cage well on the loosest hook (I can comfortably hook it on the second, but I don't like to overstretch bands).
Overall great quality as always, but wish I'd sized down to the 65E to get better cleavage without cookies. For comparison, the Pl I ordered in 65F fits without gaping. Read more 219 more words
Ewa is always making the same bra over and over again. Beige (sometimes other coloured) cups with black lace over it, and a black band. And unfortunately, I keep falling for her tricks! I now own Magqiue, Cappacino, Noir, Famme Fatale.. just to name a few. The fit of this bra is comparable to other EM bras of this cut and size. The band is nice and firm, it is quite tight as a "30", would be better on someone who is a "28". I can get away with wearing this one without altering the band on the tighter hooks currently as a 26 which prefers ...looser bands. The gore is on the slightly shorter side of Chp bras in this size. I usually see them 2.0-2.6 inches. At 2.3, it is still fairly comfortable and wearable for my close set breasts, but too high to give any cleavage on me. I may need to narrow the gore in the future, but so far I've only tried on the bra and it felt ok. The cups are pretty open, but not as open as cups without any sort of edging. The straps placement is typical as well. It is a little too far apart for my frame, but should suit someone built with a little larger just fine, as the size was intended for. The right strap is actually sewn like 1mm farther than the left one, but that one is my smaller breast, causing gaping if I slouch. I will definitely be moving in the straps a little bit, maybe 3-4mm for comfort while maintaining as much of the same fit as possible. Overall, I really do like this bra! It's utterly gorgeous, gives great lift. If you are considering getting a Polish bra, the Chp Oksana would be a great choice if you need open cups, vertical seams, and around 28F in UK size.

Another great EM bra! I love the way it looks and it's comfy too. The band is nice and snug and the straps feel good and are easy to adjust. I just wish the straps were closer together so they wouldn't bug my armpits. I think this bra might run a smidge small since my larger side is quadding very slightly with the cookie removed. The fit on my smaller side is perfect with the cookie in. I got this at Custom Curves in Dartmouth, N.S. It is wonderful to have a local shop that provides Comexim and Ewa Michalak bras in small band sizes.
This is really such a pretty bra! And,not at all what I was expecting for a "padded" bra - without the cookies in, I would consider it to be more like a moulded bra (in thickness at least). It's super.
The lace is pretty and soft and the details on the wings and straps are nice.
The gore is REALLY nice - it's sheer and has a bezel set crystal hanging under a small black satin bow.
The only negative is how the cookies go in. The pocket is like a folded over pillow sham. However, I don't think most people would be taking them out and putting them back in on a daily basis, so it wouldn't deter me from buying the bra.
I bought this bra in 2 sizes - 70DD and 75D - for my Mom to try. I'm just adding them here for data. But....I'd be tempted to buy it from a fellow user if it came up in my size https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
My shape is low set, narrow and short rooted, soft, and slightly pendulous.
This bra fits and it doesn't. I usually fit 30F bras, but I sized down from my 65F - Ewa Michalak » Chp Oksana because I had to wear a cookie on my smaller side in that size. In this 65E, my larger side barely squishes into the cup. I have to tug the cup up over my nipple and then I still get a little side boob escaping. As soon as I move around much, my left nipple sticks out of the cup. It mostly fits my smaller side, but the wings and ...wires could be higher in order to cover the side boob completely. I do love the rounded, uplifted shape though! I actually have the appearance of upper fullness in this size, which is completely due to the bra's uplifting effect (because I don't have upper fullness normally). I'm in between sizes, so it's either going to be slightly too big or slightly too small, and I prefer slightely too small because I hate gaping in the cups. I think I could have handled the 65F if I had more upper fullness/taller roots to fill the open cups with.
The lace is classic and elegant looking. It reminds me of antique lace actually. The lace ends just at the wings on this bra, and then the back of the band is a solid black elastic. The band is fairly snug in this bra, which is perfect for me, but others may need to size up. There's 2 x 4 set of hooks, so lots of room to tighten the bra if needed. There's a small black satin bow on each of the straps and also on the gore, and there is a small crystal also on the gore.
Overall this is a beautiful bra with great cleavage abilities.
I found this bra really comfortable (even giving me slight cakes-on-a-plate cleavage!) but the straps are awfully wide set and I have to angle them in to stay up on my fairly muscular shoulders. Angling the straps in causes a minor gap in the cup near the gore. I found the band to be really stretchy - I probably could hook it on the last hook, but didn’t because I really want it to last. On me, it is a little more full coverage than it is on the models, but that is because of my short roots. However, I still manage to fill it out and make it look good.😄
This is a pretty and comfortable bra. It fits exactly as expected. While I like the fit of CHPs, I do find the straps to be widely placed for my narrow frame. Perhaps wider placed than some of EM's other styles?? Speaking of straps, these are nice ones- easy to adjust, softly brushed on the underside and with pretty scalloped lace edges and satin ribbon details. Thank you Custom Curves in Dartmouth, N.S. for carrying small band EM bras!
Classic polish bras, no pictures do this bra justice. It drips of elegance and makes me feel posh just giving it a good look. So many small details that are greater than the sum of it's parts - the dusky peach that is the base colour of the cup as well as the ribbon along the wings and first 3 1/2" of the straps. Part of the gore has a sheer and see-through detail that's topped by black bow-tie and a clear gemstone (that enhances the bra's sophistication, I'm shocked at the gem not looking cheap or garish), and through the transparent mesh at the bottom is a ...black 'X' of the same lace that billows along the bridge that it leads to and then tops the cups. 4 columns of eyes instead of the typical 3 Sadly, by the time I let myself buy this off Bratabase it was too small for me. It was less open on top than I'd hoped, which can make a bra more flexible in allowing for a larger size by 1/2-1 size in my experience (and with soft tissue & usually about even fullness). It did seem to run small by a cup size judging by my 55Gs, 55FFs & other sizes from Ewa that are mostly S, CHP and otherwise plunge and half-cups. Read more 113 more words
This is a great bra for my narrow/tall roots, even, center full, projected boobs. The wires sit right in my IMF with no extra space even on the sides. The only fit issue I've noticed so far is the band - it's pretty stretchy, so even though it gives great shape I don't feel supported. (I heard EM bands tended to be tight, so I sized up. Clearly that wasn't good advice for me.) It gives a very lifted, cakes-on-a-plate cleavage. Overall, it is a beautiful, high-quality bra.
