My shape is short and narrow rooted, soft, and low set.
This bra has a smooth polyester outer cup with a cotton inner cup. The straps and gore have tasteful little pink bows. 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 straps are fully adjustable, and I do find them a little bit stretchy; not so much that you can't get some lift though. 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 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.
This bra is so much prettier in person. I was a little nervous about the flowers but it's so much better in person! The only thing is one cup fits differently than the other. Or at least that's how it looks. Not enough for a fit check but will check both cups measurements once I take it off LOL
This bra style has lovely vibrant colours, and Ewa's usual high quality. The cups are very projected, both bottom and middle of the cup and very open on top, so the bra is friendly for top fullness. The cups are lined with cotton and have cookie pockets (removable cookies included). The band is made from two layers of thick jersey and mesh and the band feels very stable. The wires are relatively narrow, although the cup width of 17.2cm is higher than the average cup width of EM's in this size. The fit is true to size, but at least from my experience the CHP cut runs larger than the other Ewa cuts. The fit is not right for me, so I'll be listing it.
My shape: semi-conical, splayed, narrow width, tall shallow roots. My breasts don't conform to bra shapes very well and are quite short.
The band on this CHP is far stretchier and longer than any other EM bra that I've tried thus far. My snug underbust hovers around 26.5 to 26.75 inches, and this bra I could easily clasp on the 3rd column of hooks to start. A CHP on me is full coverage, and that's ok. The cups on this CHP are more flexible than the CHP Noir, and curve back toward my body easier. This makes the cups far less noticeable under a shirt. The insides of the ...cups are also lined and fairly soft.
The wings on this bra are also quite high, around 5 inches. While not uncomfortable under the armpit, this is higher than any other EM bra I've tried and higher than I'd like. This places the bows right in the crook of my armpit. The wires are a 1/8" wider than my other 60J EM bras. They don't go all the way to the outside edge of the channel.
This bra is far more comfortable than the CHP Noir. Read more 84 more words
So, as a Comexim 3HC lover (narrower and more projected the better), after holding out on trying Ewa Michalak for a long time due to fear of straps being placed too wide, I finally took the plunge to try out this CHP when I saw a listing in my size and price range. And wow, am I glad I did - I think this is my new HG fit! The projection in this 65F EM CHP is better than a 65G or 70F in a Comexim 3HC, it's now my second favorite bra after my Comexim 3HC Beauty in 70F (which appears to be cut more like a ...70G from comparison to other styles). The projection is legendary for a reason. I was pleased to also find the straps are just within my narrow shoulders' tolerance range, not in my armpits as I feared. And I mean, it's just a gorgeous bra - bright, feminine, but not too obnoxious or twee for my tastes. Oh, plus, the cookies/cookie pockets - I'm in love. For the first time in my life my right and left boobs can enjoy the same fit!!! I seriously underestimated how much I'd love that. One downside: the cups are a tiny, tiny bit this side of too big for me, and I'm currently at the higher end of the weight range I fluctuate within. Meaning, left boob is a perfect fit with maybe a tiny bit of extra wiggle room, but right boob needs like 1 1/2 cookies to be where it needs to (I currently have 2 stuffed in the cookie pocket which looks a tiny bit weird if you look close maybe, but invisible if not looking for it). But overall, amazing cleavage, finally fun color that fits, can't complain, and a great first experience with an Ewa Michalak bra. I'm curious about the quadding I might see in a 65E, but I think it could potentially still be a good fit in this cut, especially at the slightly lower end of the weight range within which I fluctuate (thanks 5'1" body for +/- 5 lbs making life such an adventure). Any thoughts on that? Read more 253 more words
Yay! I'm happy to have a CHP Opium that fits again. Thanks for the trade, Wilderness! I need to fasten it on the tightest hooks since the band is a little loose, but the cups fit well. I love the super round and lifted shape of CHPs. The cut works really well with my short, projected breasts. It is comfy and flattering and I love it.
I bought this and the Ch Cherry to review on my blog, and alas, neither of them fit. This one is a mystery to me, as it has similar cup depth as most of my well fitting bras. I think it's just the fact that it's so low-coverage, it makes me quad. I need a 65DD. Hopefully I can sell and replace them both before they're gone =/ I was so excited to add reviews for these.
A gorgeous bra, and my first Ewa Michalak...and my wallet might be in trouble, because I love it a lot!
I think it is pretty much a perfect fit, the best fitting bra I've had yet! I have breasts with immediate projection and tall shallow roots that are also very close set. Other half cups sometimes gape on me, but I get no gaping with this, woohoo! And the gore is nice and narrow as well as very short. The band feels true to size to me (equivalent to a 30 band).
The cookies aren't necessary for a good fit for me, but they do give a bit of extra oomph, so I might wear them sometimes with a low cut neckline. The outer fabric has a silky feeling, and the inside of the cups is a soft cotton.
This is an excellent bra. I absolutely love it. It fits perfectly with the left cookie removed and the right one in. It is soft and pretty and gives a nice, curvy look. It feels really snug and secure and I love that. I feel that there is room for my FOB breasts at the bottom, and even though my breasts are very shallow at the roots, there is zero gaping at the top, even with hunching. The seams show in t-shirts, though. I love that the band is snug for a 28 (60). By the end of the day, the gore is digging into my sternum and causing pain, so I am going to try and bend the wires out a bit.
