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!

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.

This is one of those bras that has me constantly sneaking peeks at my breasts throughout the day because they just look so damn good! I was worried that a CHP bra would have too much projection for me, but this bra fits like a dream. I ordered it in the equivalent of the smaller of my two "normal" cup sizes and it worked out perfectly. I've heard that the EM PL bras run small in the cup, but didn't really notice much of that here. The fabric isn't as stiff as the HP Kobalt that I tried and the bra seems to be more willing to move ... with me than the Kobalt did (though, to be fair, the Kobalt might relax a bit after wearing and washing). I love the shape this bra gives, I love how comfortable it is, in fact, the only thing I don't completely love about this bra is the lack of triple hooks in back. That's really the only thing that could make this bra better for me. Wish I could order a few more of these, but they appear to be gone in my size.
