Wow. It’s been a while since I bought a Curvy Kate bra, and now I remember why I like them. The shape of this is phenomenal on me- round and sexy, no upside down 7 or pointy look like on most of my Elomis.
Size wise this fits me almost perfectly. There is very slight orange in a glass at the bottom of the cup, but otherwise my larger side is contained, the wires are nice and narrow, and the cup is very deep at the apex, but still rounded. The sides are slightly too tall, but I mostly feel this on my smaller side where there is less weight and pull from my breasts to drag the side into the appropriate position.
The shape of the bra itself is very much a low balconette- cups are fairly straight across from a surprisingly low gore. I thought it would fit like the old Bardot style but it does not- the top is shorter and more open, which works even better for me. Folks with tall roots might still find it a tad too closed however. In this size it’s definitely built for short, narrow roots, and maybe for folks who are narrow and fob.
The band feels true to size and comfortable. The mesh is firm and umstretchy. The embroidery is soft.
Comfort wise- cons: straps, other elastic. CK just insists on crappy narrow elastics, which is stupid because the straps aren’t supportive enough in this size. and the armpit and, to some extent, the band can dig in. Pros- the mesh, embroidery, and satin are all very soft and nice. The babydoll skirt is heavier weight and feels airy but not staticky.
It also just looks so nice on me. The embroidery is less of a hot pink and more of a purple-pink. The embroidery itself, and the charm at the gore, are very sweet. I love the bra portion, and feel like I would like the babydoll but in a different form where I would actually wear it.
Alterations I will make- cut the babydoll off and repurpose it sewed to a Torrid bralette I like (that is incredibly comfortable so I can lounge around the house or in bed it it). Fix the armpit and change the straps out for a pair of super comfortable Comexim or Elomi straps I have laying around.
