Bra fitting help » Do you think this bra fits or is it worth sizing down a cup?
Ewa Michalak » Chp Marcepanowa Magnolia (694) » 60H 28:11
Likely mismatch with my breast type/shape. Need more immediate projection at bottom of cup and larger band size/cup (i.e. 65H).
Alterations to consider: added depth at bottom of cup (1cm), overlapping gore, and moving straps in (2cm).
Slight gaping on my smaller breast (right one). I don’t know whether it’s because I lack some fullness on top, or whether it is because the cup size is too big.
This is my first Polish bra (was a gift from a very kind and helpful person to work out what size I am). I want to make an order to Comexim or Ewa at the end of this month, or sooner, so I would like any feedback pls on what size I should get/possible alterations that might help me

I think its lovely on you! We usually recommend sizing the bra to your bigger size. You can always add a pad to the bottom of the cup on your smaller size. Is it comfortable?

I'm thinking it may be on the smaller side as well, but not 2 cups IMO.
The CHP generally is built for low-ish coverage. You appear to be pretty 'dense/full', and the cup depth is a couple cm. less than your breast perimeter, which could indicate the need to size up 1 cup (depth needs differ from person to person though).
We could write a book about Ewa's strap placement haha, so yes - some DIY-alterations may be needed for you to wear something around this size comfortably in her bras. Positioning the straps more inward will definitely get rid of the minor gaping on your smaller side, but will probably also cause some quadding on the larger breast!
I'd guess you could do well in an Ewa 60HH or a 65H (how does the band feel on you? measurements seem quite tight). An alternative option may definitely be Comexim - they do offer alterations like straps moved in, extra depth at the wire et cetera.
Depending on what country you're in, it may be worthwhile to first order an unaltered Comexim through BreakOutBras (US based) or LACE lingerie (EU based) to determine what alterations you may need!

It looks too small to me by two cup sizes at least. The gore is floating and you have less coverage than I'd expect in a good fit (just generally - I'm not certain how much coverage CHPs typically give).
What alterations have been made to the bra?
