Appearance-wise this is one of my favourite bras - the red is such a gorgeous, summery shade. It has pretty red lace detail at the sides and bottom of the band, and the straps are all red in comparison to the stripy red/white straps on the plunge style. The bra looks more vibrant in real life than it does on the website.
The band runs rather tight (as it does in the plunge version) so it's worth sizing up in this style. The straps are also quite widely-spaced, even as someone who rarely has problems with wide-set straps; because of this I tend to wear the straps angled slightly ... inward, which creates a very slight gap at the top of the cups. Perfectly wearable for me, but I'd imagine this could be a problem for people with narrower shoulders. Aside from that I really like the CHP style and the shape it gives - round and uplifted with a decent amount of cleavage. While the cups are technically too wide for me, for some reason that bothers me less in this style than it does in the plunges, perhaps due to the shape and/or flexibility of the wires. This style also comes with fairly thin removable pads, which is nice for a subtle boost! It's sometimes advised to size down a cup in the CHP in comparison with the PL and 3D styles, but I wear the same size in all three; I didn't get quadboob in the 65D as its so open on top but it was much less supportive.
