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.
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.
