Used to fit

Me: Full on top, effectively full on bottom, omega shape, round boobs, soft on outside, firm on inside, full everywhere, short roots.

Shape/fit: Projected at the apex without much pointyness. More room at the apex than the bottom of the cup, but still lots of room at the wire. Good for short/average roots. Might work for taller ones too though as the top of the cup is elasticized. Narrowest wires for this size. Gives a rounded natural shape. Similar in fit to Curvy Kate Daydreamer Balcony Bra (CK5401) but with a more forgiving cup edge. Great if you're full on top. In this size band is a little stretchier at the bottom of the band, perfect for those of us who are more A shaped/have back fat.

Gore is fairly short for a balconette, especially in this size, sides are a bit taller but not uncomfortable. Wires are firm but softer than Panache. Band is very stretchy, size down one band. Bottom cup material is strong, double-reinforced mesh. It's soft enough, but not as smooth as the Daydreamer. The elastics are also comfortable, much more so than most Curvy Kate elastics. Straps are just right- not too stiff and hard, not too stretchy. The mesh top has some stretch, and the top pink elastic is just right- it's not sewn on stretched, so it won't cut into full on top boobs.

Looks: Oh my god every bra should be like this. It's gaudy and tacky and I love it so much. I've been waiting for a year for this bra and I'm not disappointed. There's at least three different fluorescent pink colors used, lots of aqua and purple and ridiculousness. The flamingos really are what bring it over the top. I love flamingos and kitchy prints and this is my bread and butter. More bras like this please!

Support/comfort: The bottom lace is purely decorative but doesn't chafe- it's quite soft. The bra feels a tiny bit itchy in places but I haven't washed it yet. I've been wearing it for about five hours without pain at this point, meaning it's one of two bras I own I can wear. It is so supportive due to the firm mesh cup. No bouncing at all for my huge breasts. I haven't had a bra that controls them like this since I grew out of my full coverage Elomis.

Tldr: Rounded apex projection, narrow wires, good construction, comfortable, and the most supportive Curvy Kate out there, all in the most ugly-pretty package imaginable. Size down in the band. If you don't like this color, though, this one is coming out soon: http://www.lingerieinsight.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Tropics-1.jpg

    Thanks! That's me! I want to figure out how to wear it outside my clothes without shocking everyone. Maybe over a shirt!
