I bought this bra on eBay, and could not tell from the pictures exactly how beautiful it is. I thought it would be kind of plain, but the polka dots and the embroidery on the straps (so, they aren't fully adjustable for those who need it) add some unique qualities for the bra. This is not my grandma's white bra, and I feel amazing wearing it! I was concerned with the seams and the shape until I put a shirt on over - it gives a wonderful, uplifted shape under clothing. This is my first 30J bra (I actually got all four 30J Curvy Kates I ordered today - it's like christmas!!), and I think I have found my band size. In the past when I've tried 30 bands, they seemed to cut off my breathing a bit. Looking back, it is probably because ...the cup was never quite large enough. The center was a bit tight against my sternum, thanks to me being full in the middle, but I pushed the wires down the canal (there was a bit of room near the armpit) and now it is much more comfortable. I have only worn this a couple hours, not all day, but it is looking like the Princess will be one of my every-day favorites! Read more 73 more words
On me, this bra is very difficult to fit. I have the red in 30F, and it's too small. Then I have the white in 30FF, and it's slightly to big, but still a better fit than the red. So in my size, the Princess bra runs small in the cup. The back band fits well.
It gives a good shape under clothes, but I find it rather uncomfortable to wear, as it's very itchy. The white more so than the red, I think. I don't think washing helped that much on the issue. Also, the little (and very cute!) velvety polka dots take colours badly, so if you have the white version, don't wear it, as I've done, under dark coloured clothes, if you want it to retain its white freshness.
I really want to love this bra. The detailing on it is so beautiful, and despite the wrinkle in the cup, it give a nice appearance under shirts. The band is very firm and feels quite supportive.
The underwires are not friendly to my sternum, and stab in at the gore. An hour of wearing this bra yesterday left my sternum red, irritated and feeling bruised even still today. I do really like that the underwires encapsulates all of my breast tissue, rather than stopping short at the armpit like Freyas do.
The cup wrinkles just slightly at the top, at the sheer panel between the lace and the bottom part of the cup. If I fold that section into the cup, so that the lace meets the solid part of the cup, the fit is perfect. So I would say this cup is just a tiny bit too big. I wonder if bending the underwires would help the fit at the sternum?
I was really hoping this bra would be the answer to all my frustrations! I had heard that this was on the small side and as I am finding most of my 28ffs seem a bit too small, thought therefore 28g in this might be perfect. But unfortunately not. Whilst the 28ff was definetely too small, the 28g wasn't right either. It was too high under my arms and I wasn't filling out the top of the cups properly (which is often the case for me - maybe because I am short???). Also the shape was a bit funny. In the 28ff the shape is really lifted and round (although it didn't fit) but in the 28g I felt my breasts were sitting too low and I had to make the strap really tight to lift them high ...enough which became a bit uncomfortable. (so far all the Curvy Kate and Flirtelle styles I have tried seem to be similar fit for me - i.e. they don't seem right! - which is unfortunate as they make really pretty styles and there bands are perfect for me) Read more 49 more words
Very pretty balconette bra. The band fits me perfectly, it seems. The cup is too small though on both boobs, definite quad boob. So this bra is definitely smaller in the cup compared to the Angel, Romance or Lottie bra. The centre gore starts out resting against my ribcage, but quickly lifts just a bit. I think this is due to the cups being slightly too small. They are wide enough but could be deeper for me. I returned this bra due to quad boob.
This is such a pretty bra! I am so sad it doesn't fit me.
I think the shape is just all wrong for me. The straps are much too wide set, and there is not enough support in the cups (in addition to them being too small) so my boobs are saggy and overflowing. The placement of the seam between the thicker, lined lower portion of the cup and the thinner, unlined upper portion hits much too low and winds up creating a sort of square shape to my boob where the lower portion goes down and then at the seam the go straight up as they press against the thinner upper portion of the cup. (Though this effect is not as bad in the Princess as in the Emily I tried on.) I honestly really ...like how the lower/outer (thicker) portion of the cup fits, but it just drops the ball above that. I think this bra will work better for someone with perkier boobs with more of their own rounded shape, and/or someone with much wider shoulders.
The bra does seem like if it fit well it would be quite comfortable. It is nice and light-feeling (although I wonder if it's too light-weight to stand up to really big boobs) and very sexy and pretty.
Like other reviewers I've seen, I suspect if I could get this several cup sizes bigger and tighten the straps up I could get it to fit much better. I would really need something like a 32LL or so for this to really fit well. Curvy Kate, your sizing makes me very sad Read more 144 more words
