Oh hello SC! You gave me lots of help on another thread, but I can't find the thread now grr. I have a CHP style, but it is a bit small, and I have got a bit fatter, so can't tell from that if it is just small anyway in the cup or if it is because I ordered the wrong size to start with. You suggested I probably need a 28GG, maybe a G, I am wearing a 30ff but my ribs are small, 27". I do however hate it when bras are really tight as it gives me back pain, hence the 30s. The EM bra is a 30FF and the band does seem fine, it is black though, and black always comes up smaller, also as the cup is too small that will be making a difference with the band won't it? I always wear Freya bras, but they do give me an East west shape rather than a front shape which suits me better. Breast shape is quite round naturally, but I bf for years and years and I am an old gimmer, so they have dropped somewhat! I want that fabulous Polish scaffolding!
Which chp is it? And which s are you considering. I have a similar trapez on just now and it's a very soft band which I definitely wouldn't size up in. If you are fairly rounded with top fullness I'd be inclined towards the 28gg. You can always pop an extender in if you need to let it loosen a bit. However that said the 30g will be a standard size therefore returnable and taking a band in a couple of inches is pretty easy too
I have the CHP Cappuccino. The S styles I like are the S Trustkawski z malinami (!) And the S Teczowe kfiaty. There is a red and white bra I like a lot too, and green one CHP musisztomiec , (may have mis-spelled that!) I like the green colour. I like the high waist pants that go with the Teczowe kfiaty but can't find them on the website, and when i emailed them i got vague response that left me none the wiser!
I do have a few chp, but I prefer the shape of the S overall. The PL is pretty good too.
I'm going to order the tecz..... too - and the red and white one. And maybe the trustkawski....and I'm thinking an S karmelki too as I need a newnude bra. There's a thread over on chat just now about the Joseph Rowntree poverty research and one of their assumptions is women buy 6 bras a year and folk think that seems outrageously high...I could buy that in one Ewa expedition
Could you pm me the name please? Then I will send them a request. Do you think those high waist pants are just not available? I checked the website quite regularly but they have never appeared. I got the pants to go with the CP bra and they are a really good fit, they don't dig in round the bottom.
Oh thanks. When I emailed, the response was along the lines of "order them and we will send them" but there seems to be no way or ordering them. I will check my emails and see just what the bloke said, in case it makes more sense to you!
it says "if you can make that order and than separately you can order those panties when they will be available" .....!!! The "that order" bit refers to the bra, as I wanted to order them together to avoid two lots of postage.
I think that from reading reviews the newer bras in their ranges tend to be a little more reliable in terms of band size - some of their older ones were really narrow. Which could explain yours Sorrel?
I have the CH Karmelki and it's my go-to nude bra. I've yet to try an S shapes as I'm currently banned from ordering due to a slight disagreement over returns
Comexim seem to be about three cups smaller than your usual size. For my first order I used their chart to work out my size (I'm a UK 30GG) and ordered three bras, all 70K. They were ginormous. Taking Stat's advice, I've now ordered a 30J!
Their chart thing makes me a 28HH snug fit or a 30 H comfy fit, this is based on 27 underbust, 36 over standing with a bra on. My brain is hurting trying to work that out, they don't skip all double letters do they? As they have the HH? So Do they just do single letters until H? eg. DD= their E, E would be their F, F would be G, G would be H and GG HH? That sounds about right actually, given that I am in a 30FF but probably need a G. However if they run big then maybe I should just order a G?
