This bra is great. Seriously great I love it so much. There's just one thing that bugs me but we'll get into that. This bra was from Ebay, and someone (sorry, forgot) posted the link here. I am forever grateful because this is my new favourite bra. It is second hand, but according to the seller only worn once or twice.The band actually stretches to 30 inches which is nice. It's pretty narrow near the hooks and eyes. The straps are plush and only half adjustable but are comfortable, not too wide set and don't need to be shortened for now. The bra itself is adorable. I love ...all the bows. The colour is great too. The wires are a good width and length and seem to be narrow enough for me. The gore is a decent height and tacks firmly but not painfully. I love the 3 part cup and the shape I get from it. It's very open on top and fits nicely. My biggest issue with this bra is the quality. For the most part, it's great quality. However, there are two spots in the band (probably in the same space on either size) where the stitching has come undone. It's about an inch on either side and I'm not sure the best way of fixing this. I'll probably very carefully try to replicate the zigzag stitching. I just really love the bra and I hope this doesn't impact the amount of times I can wear it. I'll post pictures of it and maybe y'all can help me decide if I should bring it to my tailor (have to go anyway) or whether I should try and fix it myself. Overall, I LOVE this bra and that's the only issue I have with it. My bigger problem now is that I want all the CHP's! Read more 200 more words
Frankly, this is a little bit too big for me. A little too high on the side, the cups are a little tall. I don't quite fill out the top on most days. However, this is a great bra for me for a few days a month when my 65Es are feeling a little too small. I fill out the cups nicely at that point and no gaping for me.
All that aside, the shape is still really nice. Up front, lifted, and round. Even when it's not quite a great fit it still gives a lovely appearance.
The band is nice and snug. Very comfortable right now on ...the loosest of three eyes. The straps are only half-adjustable :/. But, the front of them are not very stretchy and they don't really dig into me, so I do appreciate that. They're nice and thick and the sliders stay in place well. The wires are a bit high on the side, but they stay in place and they don't poke anything, so I find them comfortable.
The color is a great shade of gray. The pictures online really don't convey the hue very well, it always looks more purple or blue than it is. Those undertones are certainly present, but in reality it is absolutely unmistakably gray. And gray is beautiful.
The underwear are a 36. Nice and soft, they're a comfortable rise and don't migrate when wearing. They're slightly stretchier than the bra band, but they hold their shape well. They're not line-less, so skirts and dresses only. Read more 146 more words
I had a slightly similar problem with this one as I did with my HP Kobalt. In my 75H bras from Ewa, I would get a tiny amount of quadraboob during the day and I had to fasten the band on the tightest hooks from the beginning. I thought I'd try one band size down and one cup size larger from what I originally had hoping it would fit, but that was definitely the wrong choice.
In this one, it wasn't quite as bad as the HP Kobalt. I still get a small amount of gaping near the center gore. It isn't much at all though and is invisible ...under clothes. However, my smaller breast has a bit more noticeable gaping at the top. I am tempted to try using a pad at the bottom to see if it evens things out. I think, though, that I could be one cup smaller in this bra. The underwires are also a bit long for me and come nearly right up to the top of my armpit. Not too comfortable sadly.
As for the bra itself, the gray fabric is lovely! Perfectly soft and I love the color! I think I will try sizing down in the cup and see how that works. This bra is too amazing to pass up! The shape it gives me is also pretty phenomenal. This is the first CHP style I have tried from Ewa, and I think it is actually my favorite above the HP style. It offers the coverage and slightly less projection of the HP with the lift of the CP. Once I find my size, I think I am going to need all the colors!
Love the grey colour of it, and even if its CHP without extra pads, it can lovely covers my assymetry (usually I use 1 pad). Bra has lovely and soft band - fits perfect with no extender. Im getting small quadboobs, although theyre not too big and I can accept them comparing to some other bras, as this one gives me lovely shape I am going to keep it for now, but if someone would have 70E/65F i would consider swap!
It's a nice bra. It lokks perhaps a little bit like a bikini top. I like the color which is listed as silver grey but looks a little like dusty lilac to me. The band feels true to size.
The cups however are too big or my boobs are to soft and just lay floating at the bottom. I chose the CHP to get a little more coverage than my CH Toffik gives but the result was gaping at the top. A lot if I move my shoulders just a tiny bit forward. I'm still wondering if it's the cut or the size thats the problem. I have the Toffik in FF and it's definitely too small in the cups.
The straps are halfway adjusteable which fits me fine and I like the three rows of hooks for a change (not many of my bras have that).
What a lovely bra I can't believe I have my first bra that fits!! The Chp style is very wide, I think it's almost too wide for me (as izzylawliet predicted), but it feels comfortable, and I really like the fit. If I get the opportunity, I will definitely go for CH styles next time.
The shape I'm getting is pretty forward and rounded. You would think that such wide cups would give flat shapes, but nope! It's pretty averagely projected. I also love the seams. The vertical seams work well with lifting my breasts, ...but they don't show through your average T shirt. I feel like the top of this cup (even though it's elasticated) is quite open, which gives me a teeny gap on my smaller boob when I move around.
The band runs a little tight, stretching only to 25 inches for a 26 band. It feels snug, but I will probably get 24 bands from Ewa from now on (excluding black and lace) for my 23/24 inch ribcage and use an extender at first. Read more 87 more words
My first bra of the popular Chp style. Great depth and projection at the wire, which provides a very up-front, rounded look with great cleavage--or at least, someone would have great cleaveage if the bra fit them better, it was a bit too large on me . I lvoe the grey color and simple, classy lines of this bra.
I love love LOVE grey and want a million grey bras. This is such a great one. Unfortunately, it is not a good fit without "cookie" inserts, and this bra technically doesn't have the "pockets" for them so I just shove the cookies in and they pretty much stay until my bra-wearing day is over. It's unfortunate that this bra is not being made anymore, because it's an excellent shape for even/FOT/narrow/projected ladies.
I am so grateful to have come across this bra! It is a much simpler EM style, with three-part vertically-lined cups, subtle piping across the top of the cups, smooth, unadorned straps and two small, flat rosette bows on the center gore. It's made of gorgeous silver-grey knitwear which has the slightest satiny sheen and feels super soft against the skin. It's a very unusual color to find in a bra, and it makes for an interesting neutral option also.
Being an older CHP model from 2012, it differs from EM's newer models in that it doesn't have the optional asymmetry pads, which is just fine by me because ...the cups, being very open on top, encapsulate my boobs perfectly without, uplifting them into a perfectly round shape without any gaping or overflow. Just for reference, however, I've included one picture without pads (taken from another CHP in the same size) and one with. As compared to my other CHPs, this one gives a more compact look that's held closer to the chest. I usually love super feminine, frillier bras with lots of details, but this is a nice departure and a very practical basic option for times when something smooth and seamless is needed; however much I love my Polish padded bras, most of them show some trace of seams beneath thin, fitted shirts, so it's awesome to find one that doesn't!
The straps are only half adjustable, which I don't love, but thankfully I don't need to adjust them very much. The band firmness, gore and cup height are all pretty identical fit-wise to the newer CHP models. Read more 163 more words
This bra fits quite well on my smaller boob. I wear it with an extender as I needed whatever bra I can get because I grew out of my old ones and couldn't afford a new one. I also used this bra to figure out what size I would now need with Ewa Michalak should I order a new bra and I'll probably go for a 65JJ or a 60K next time, depending on the stretch of the band. Beatiful material, fits very comfortably, and the wire width is perfect.
