    70DD

    Fits

    My breasts: Narrow, tall root, I fit a 30E in Freya, and 30F in most other bras. I have quite a bit of immediate projection, which makes finding bras where the wires don't get pushed down out of my inframammary fold hard to find. My breasts are close set, with a little bit less than a pinky's width between them.

    This is a lovely bra, a little bit busy with lace for my taste, but amazingly discrete under shirts, it shows probably less than my Freya Patsy. The band is very firm, and smaller than a 32, and I am glad I chose the 70DD (32DD) than the ... 65E (30E). The band on this bra is significantly tighter than the PL Onyks of the same size (http://www.bratabase.com/bra/dladc/) that I purchased at the same time, with a stretched length that was an inch smaller. I wore it for 12+ hours, but I was feeling it at around 7 hours. It was uncomfortable enough that I took it off first thing, but not uncomfortable enough that I didn't run my errands after work. I will, however, wear it with an extender, or for shorter amounts of time, until it loosens up a bit.

    My breast roots are freakishly narrow, I guess, and the wires are still a little bit wide (less than a half inch), but its a good fit. The wires may also seem wide because the band is a bit too tight and its distorting the wires - according to my measurments, the wires for this Orchidea are the same as the Pl Onyks, so the wires should fit the same. I'll try it with an extender and see. My roots are very tall, up to my collar bone, and this bra gives me a nice shape, though not as good as the PL Onkys. The straps seem a bit stretchy, but are fully adjustable, with plenty of space to make them shorter, so no worries there. I do not have any problems with the straps being too wide and cutting into my skin. I think the straps being on more of the side than in the front help gather up my breasts and give them a more pleasant shape, instead of smooshing them - helps allow for the projection my breasts have. The cups have good immediate projection, which is great!

    So, I complained about the band a bit, but even then, I'd wear this over my Freya Patsy, and the Cleo Juna is gonna go entirely. This is not my #1 bra, but its a good fit, and looks great on.

    Here's my confession: I used the Ewa Michalak calculator, and ordered what it told me to. True story! And all 3 bras fit! I ordered 3 Ewa bras (PL Onyks, CH Onyks, and CHP Orchidea) at the same time, and they all fit nicely. I'm guessing I'll have my "regular" bra size of 30F, my Freya bra size of 30E, and my Ewa bra size of 70DD. I'm very happy with the bras from Ewa, and have no complaints, other than I didn't want to wait for them to make my bras. But they were making bras just for me. In Poland. That's worth waiting for!

    Update: I've had this bra for 4 months, and while its not my favorite bra of the 3 (it's hard to beat the PL Onyks), its a great bra. The band was tight, and now it's perfect, still on the first set of hooks. The construction has held up beautifully, it's looks just as nice now. The material hasn't snagged or pilled or anything. High quality, and so pretty. Haven't touched my poor Freya Patsy in months, it's got to be sold ...

    Beautiful solid white CHP, a perfect bridal bra for cakes on a plate decollete or even a perfect bra to dye and paint! Or if you wear white. Narrow wires, tight band, deep cups that push up and hold. Nice front & center uplift, nice round silhouette, terrific construction, all the Ewa M expectations are met is this orchid-white half cup!

    70D

    Didn't fit

    This bra is beautiful and is a very pretty "ecru" color which is just a fancy term for a off-white color that doesn't look too dirty! It feels absolutely AMAZING when I put it on and is much looser than most of my 65E bras from Ewa. Part of this is I did lose weight (but, the 65 bands were still on the tight side...), however, I think this bra is just loose. That being said it is very comfortable, though, I can't quite fill the top - esp on my smaller side and think instead of going only 2 cups down (1 cup due to decreased band size for sister sizing and 1 cup for losing weight) I should have gone down 3 cup sizes. Oh well, it still feels soooo good when I wear it and it's beautiful and a great "plain and nude" bra that I'm keeping it!

    This bra fits well except on top. The cups come up a bit too high to lay flat.

    65D

    Didn't fit

    A very pretty bra. I like the lace detailing. A very well constructed bra as always from EM. I like the shape of the CHP cut (round and uplifted but close to the chest), but I prefer the projection that the CH gives. The band runs true to size, and the cups run a bit small. I will exchange my 65D for a 60E.

    65F

    Didn't fit

    This bra is very pretty, seems more white then 'ecru', and has the widest wires that I've seen with Effuniak bras so far. This could also be because I ordered a 65F, instead of the usual 65E or DD. The width of the cups was perfection, but they were a little too big for me, both in the cup and band. I had ordered a different CHP bra in a 65E previously, and had quadboobing, so I figured I would try an F. I am going to exchange this bra for a 60F, going down both in the cup and band.

    The band goes all the way around, and is pretty comfortable. The cups are not padded, except in the construction of cup. I kind of wished that they would have had the pockets for removable padding, and I noticed that when I inserted a little foam pad that cups were flexible enough to show it a little. Very well made, nice fabric.
