    30FF

    Fit

    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.

    30J

    Fit

    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!

    I have a full review of this bra on my blog http://curvywordy.blogspot.com/2012/01/curvy-kate-princess-in-wine-and-in.html

    In summary it is a lovely bra but sadly it was not a good fit for me in band or cup in the sizes I tried. I am hoping to try other sizes though as I think my correct fit is still out there somewhere!

    It's a very pretty style with polka dot cups (the dots have a velvety feel to them which is very tactile) and the lower half of the cups is double lined for extra support.

    The cups were too wide for me - my preference is definitely for a narrower but deeper cup.

    The central gore laid flat on me and the underwires did not poke at all.

    Overall a very comfortable bra despite being the wrong size.

    28G

    Didn't fit

    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)

    28DD

    Fit

    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?

    30G

    Didn't fit

    This bra is absolutely lovely, but I wish it was comfortable! The front of my armpits were so sore after wearing it for a few hours! The underwire was also too wide for my breasts. The look of the bra is beautiful, but unfortunately, I would not wear it under most clothing as the material appears bumpy and uneven from the lace. All in all, good bra to wear if you know you'll be taking it off immediately..which I guess isn't a good bra to wear at all!

    36G

    Fit

    I *think* I may have finally found my Holy Grail in bras! I recently got fitted at a local boutique (Nordies had me in a DD for YEARS and so I thought discomfort was normal) and found out I was a 36G. I found this beautiful Lilac/Orchid on eBay for 25 dollars from a Store Seller and figured I would try it. I was very skeptical at first due to a lot of bra bloggers saying they were having trouble with fit but I'm so glad I took the chance!

    The fit, is PERFECT (I think, I'm new to this whole proper fitting bra game eek!) I love the natural but uplifted shape it gives and you wouldn't know it by looking at it but it is very very supportive. I can wear it all day and not even know it's on, no poking, ... no strap slippage. I put it on in the morning and never have to tug or pull or readjust anything throughout the day. The color, a gorgeous light purple with contrasting embroidery that goes from light to dark purple and a dark purple ribbon, has a very fairytale look to it. The fabric is really soft but the flocked dots DO tend to pick up any color so I have to be very careful if I choose to where it with a dark color and if anyone knows how to fix this please let me know. Also, strap adjustment, the straps are adjustable. It takes a little patience to do it, but be very careful and you can slowly wiggle up and down without harming your straps :)

    Overall, it's a great fitting and gorgeous bra that I would recommend, but I do have one lone tenny tiny problem with it. I feel like the wires on the side could be a smidge taller. Again, I'm new to proper fitting bras so maybe it's just in my head and it really is a perfect fit. I'm going to ask for Fitting Help and see what everyone else says and then I will revise my review.
