My shape: Narrow, short rooted, soft with some centre fullness (but not much upper fullness). I wear a lot of 30F unlined as long as their deep enough, and 30FF lined/padded.
Design/style: This shade is somewhere between burgundy and dark pink. It's quite pretty. I'm usually not a 'pink' fan, but this one is very feminine without being a bright pink bra. the colour is richer and deeper than the picture on their website. There is a satin bow in the centre, and lace along the cups edge that gives it something extra.
Fit: Narrow, projected, rounding, lifting - ideal! Earlier in the month there is a touch of ...gaping on my smaller side near the upper edge, but later in the month it works out. This cup is quite narrow, which is awesome! It's also shorter than the 65FF - Ewa Michalak » Chp Cappuccino (317), which was about 0.5cm taller (just enough to make it unwearable for me due to gaping along the upper edges). It holds everything up but also not compressed against you - just lifted and rounded. It creates a lovely profile under a shirt. You can see some seams under a tee, but I don't pay too much attention, so I don't mind. I find the band nice and firm, and it's not uncomfortable at all. I actually forget I'm wearing it, and have been able to wear it for 14 hour days without adjusting or noticing it at all. A+ all around. Read more 142 more words
This one came to me from VioletIridescence and I really love it. I'm so grateful for the "sharing" culture here.
The colour is such a nice sophisticated shade of deep raspberry. It's pink without being too pink.
What I like about this style is that it doesn't have tape covering the vertical seams like many CHP's do.
The straps are a little too wide set, but I expect that now and just accept it. It doesn't cause me any discomfort and I'm not inclined to make any alterations.
The band is perfect for a 65. It has just 2 hooks. I find I'm often wishing for 3. I find that ...2 rows tend to be more susceptible to wear - I like to wear my band snug, and I like them wide all the way to the closure.
You can also see that, like with my 65G SM Rozmarzona, there is a TEENY bit of gaping right at the top of the cup at the lace. I tried putting cookies in the bra, and it didn't change a thing, so I just think that if it were closed off a little at the top of the cup, it would suit my shape better. I have an S -style coming in size 65FF and I'm super curious to see if I can cup-size down even in padded styles.
All that being said, I would consider it a fit and it's a gorgeous, comfortable bra that'll give a little more va-va-va voom in a sweater or an open neck blouse.
P.S. I'll upload measurements tonight. Read more 151 more words
This bra was transferred to me by Wilderness1 and arrived quickly and in really lovely condition. This is my first Ewa Michalak bra and I'm very impressed by the quality of the construction. The details are finished so neatly and it feels very sturdy and well made. It's a beautiful rich colour that I think would be really flattering on most skintones, the outer cup material is soft and silky and the inner cup fabric is a comfortable cotton jersey. The CHP really does give the 'apples in a basket' look as advertised - the shape is *very* rounded - cakes on a plate-arama.
The ...cups are very low cut, and when I s&s (with or without cookies) I have to reverse scoop to keep the nipple on my larger size from making an appearance. However, once I've done this it feels miraculously secure for everyday wear, which I guess is testament to the great cut. It does give me quadding with the cookies in, and I think if I order a CHP direct from EM I'll try a 65G. Interestingly, I'd previously searched by the cup depth and wire width measurements on my best fitting bras on Bratabase and was recommended a 65G in this very style, which I think would be a good fit for me. Lesson learnt - search by measurement is gospel. But I'm very happy with this bra generally - the size issues are really minor - and will definitely keep it https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 149 more words
This is my all-time favourite bra. The CHP cut is a perfect fit for my incredibly projected, even-to-FOT (3/5) chest. The wires are soft and comfortable, the depth is incredible and the gore soft tacks (the closest I'll get in Polish bras). I've been wearing this bra since Christmas and aside from the initial breaking in of the band I'm still on the 2nd hooks. Well worth the money, have since bought 2 more CHPs for my collection! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
The band of this bra is typical of most EM, that is to say tighter than a lot of other brands, where I can wear a 34. It has removable pads, without the pad it fits my larger breast and with one pad it fits my smaller breast. The colour is a deeper burgundy which is hard to photograph. It is a fairly standard example of EM's CHP model.
I bought this bra a a replacement for my loves CHP Groszki i roze in the same size. My breasts are average - narrow and FOB. As the forerunner the bra fits very good, the band is a bit tighter than my older model so I wear it with an extender. The shape is very rounded, I can wear this bra with low cut tops. I am still struggling a bit so find the best adjustment of straps and band. When I choose a tighter band the bra stats to hurt in my armpit, so I have to be a bit careful. The material is not so soft as the ...material from Groszki, but I guess this will get better while wearing this bra for a while. Till now the bra is creaking sometimes. I cannot say anything unexpected apart from the fact that the color is much more beautiful than in the online shop. I tried to find a comparison for a while and I guess the best description is "raspberry syrup" or something similar. It is really beautiful and I love the fact that the straps have a matching color and are not black.
The cookie pockets are a huge issue to get the cookie in and out. Slick against slick (polyester probably) is not easy plus the pocket version has changed from older models and so removal / insertion is cumbersome.
The band is quite tight and so I am waiting on an extender to see if it will help.
