I fell in love with this bra as soon as I saw it!! Love at first sight!! I received an email from Ewa with a special offer on this bra and instantly purchased the set with matching thongs (in a Small/36). So adorable!! I'm a sucker for the corset look and LOVE the lace-up ribbon on the cups (and panties), with the polka dots and delicate Lace trim...cute cute cute!! The straps are also adorable, and different than your typical, everyday bra strap, with the contrasting pink ribbon interwoven throughout.
Now onto the technical stuff. Looks like a perfect fit! But I'm not really sure, something seems, or ...feels, a bit off. It's been quite some time since I've worn Ewa. I've been Victoria's Secret's spokeswoman for the past 2 years and have worn nothing else. But we all know the "evils" behind Vicky. I feel like their Demi bras are great and fit almost perfectly! But anything with a little padding and the cups are entirely too wide, and too shallow, for me. And I wanted something cute for summer. The cup width is just about perfect, I have the band on the second to last hook, the straps seem a bit too far out but nothing major. I do have them tightened about halfway and they are digging into my sunburned shoulders (ouch). But the gore tacks nicely, no quadboob going on and the cups seem to fit just right. But I feel like they might be just a tad too roomy. I know if I take the padding out they will definitely gape. I think I have to just break it in and see. It's def tighter than what I'm used to and a bit uncomfortable. I'm hoping it won't be as bad the more I wear it. I'll have to update after a full day's wear. Or maybe try another size? I'm not quite sure. But one thing I noticed that is a def plus - the wires overlap just a tad, which is perfect for my close-set boobs! Yay for overlapping wires!! Lol!
Adding bra in for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database, but since I did measure it, I decided to add it anyway.
CHP XoXo is a padded half cup bra. It has light foam lined cups with additional removable pads, which EM states is for the correction of Asymmetry. The pockets for these pads are sewn on the curve of the wire and not across the depth of the cup. The color of this bra is pale pink with micro black dots and a faux corset lace up on the cups, and has ...a white cotton liner. The XoXo is also available in other styles, such as the S which looks the same except has an added 4th horizontal section across the top of the cup for additional coverage and support.
The band measures 25.5” to a max of 36” and has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.
The cup depth is 12.5” (measured by hovering the cup between the knees and placing the tape measure into the cup without any resistance) and stretches to 14” over the knee without the cookies in. There are 3 vertical parts to the cup and a pocket for the removable pads.
I love the way Ewa Michalak CHPs fit. They lift and centre beautifully and give a streamlined look from the front and a full, rounded side profile. I think this one fits a smidge bigger than expected, both in the band and cup, so I need to wear the cookies with it and fasten on the tightest hooks. I like the way it looks and feels, though. It's a cute style, though perhaps not practical because of the contrast piping. The straps are comfy, easily adjustable and not too stretchy. They are a little wide set for my narrow frame, but not bothersome. The bra fabric is not the softest I've felt, but definitely not rough either, and the cookie pockets are lined with super soft cotton. My breasts are very soft and pendulous, centre and bottom-full, narrow and short rooted with lots of projection just above the wire.
