After much success with the Cleo Marcie, I decided that I needed some more "neutral" bras, so I decided to do some hunting. I have very full on top breasts, so I was recommended the Curvy Kate Emily. I had never tried anything by Curvy Kate before so I was excited to finally try it out.
Sizing/Fit (Band) - I measure about 31 inches around my underbust, so with bandsizes, I can easily go between 30 and 32 inch bands. On this one, I decided to go with the 32, that turned out to be perfect! It wasn't too tight in the slightest, yet it didn't ride up.
Sizing/Fit (Cup) - I had heard from a few other reviews that many Curvy Kate unpadded bras ran a little small, but I went ahead and ordered my usual size of 32H, and it turned out to be a perfect choice. I had no gaping at the top, yet no quadboob. The profile was nice and round, but not 'in your face' like many molded bras (at least for me). This bra seems pretty forgiving, so I would recommend this as a starter bra for the Curvy Kate brand. The only thing I would say about this bra problem wise is the wide underwires. My breast tissue ended way sooner than the underwires did, but it wasn't uncomfortable in the slightest.
Appearance/Comfort - This bra is beautiful. There have been a lot of complaints about this bra looking too 'mature' but I have to disagree. Even for my eighteen year old tastes. The embroidery is very detailed and I love the satin bows on the center and on each strap. The fabric is also very soft and breathable.
