So today’s review is another EM, and a lovely gray half cup at that. This was graciously loaned to me by a friend, and I didn’t have time to take my usual studio pictures for this review before I needed to send it back. So, you’ll have to pardon my kitchen in the background. But I wanted to compare and contrast this bra to my previous CH Biszkopty review, as it is a slightly different cut and one cup size smaller.
Well now, isn’t she lovely! I’ve always wanted a gray bra. The vertical seamed construction is identical, but the CHP cut is supposed to be slightly wider and shallower than the CH cut. I actually find this bra narrower than my Biszkopty. That could be due to the smaller cup size. At any rate, in my size range, I don’t think there’s much difference between the CH and CHP cuts. The band runs snug, stretching to around 28″ but since I wear a lot of 28 bands and my underbust measures 27.5, I didn’t find this to be an issue.
From the side view, you can see how the profile of this bra is utter perfection on me. There’s no hint of quadding (this is my smaller side) and the wires line up perfectly with my root.
Look at that low coverage and lovely cleavage. I’m obsessed. As a side note – my boobs are set quite low on my chest. So low, in fact, that all this cleavage still hides under even a V neck shirt! To take the girls out on the town in this bra, I would need to find a superlow V neck or wrap shirt of some kind. For those of you set higher on your chest, this is most definitely a show-off, date night bra 🙂
Here’s where we start to see the only minor fit issue I could find, if I were to nitpic. My left side is slightly bigger than my right side, and there’s a hint of quadding – more like “bubbling” if you will. It appears the CH/CHP style is a tossup for me – do I want a tiny bit of bubbling, or a tiny bit of gapping?
Here’s another shot – if I push my left side slightly outwards, it’s easier to see the bubbling. That said, I took this bra for quite the test drive when I had it. I wore it during a photoshoot that involved lots of bending over, climbing, and even lying on my stomach on the ground. I took my kids trick or treating in it. Not once did I have to readjust. So while the low coverage, cleavage-y cut of the bra takes some getting used to at first, I didn’t fall out of it once.
I’d consider this little experiment a success! I owe my friend many thanks for giving me the chance to borrow and review it. I have 2 more 65F Ewa bras in on their way to me, and hopefully they turn out to be keepers as well!
