Have you ever needed to wear a bra as outerwear, somehow? Have you tried to match your lipstick to the color or mood of the bra? That’s how I feel about Poppy. After wanting it too much since seeing it teased in April, I finally am wearing it and I do have ruby red lipstick on and I do feel as sultry and exotic as the opium poppies printed all over this bra.
Fit-wise, this is nearly exactly the same as my 40JJ - Curvy Kate » Vegas Balcony Bra (CK5601). Which means it’s close to perfect except for stretchy, low quality straps and band. Great, at least at my size, for women with shorter roots and certainly more closed off than 40JJ - Curvy Kate » Charm Babydoll (SG5207) or 38K - Curvy Kate » Sheer Joy. I have to hook the band on the last hooks so that’s a bummer, but I had the same problem with Vegas. The cups are very deep and narrow for this size: more so than Ewa Michalak. I think only Comexim makes bras with narrower wires around this size.
The most impressive thing here is the materials. A beautiful, delicate, but firm floral lace is used on the top cups, and prevents in cup quad. If 38J - Curvy Kate » Daydreamer (5401) or Vegas was a good fit but you didn’t like the in-cup quad, this is the bra for you. The top elastic is soft and doesn’t cut in to my pre-period boobs and keeps my smaller side from gapping. And, here’s the impressive part. They even used the lace on the wing. It’s so pretty!
The poppy fabric itself is softer than previous iterations of CK’s bonded reinforced fabrics so it’s much more comfortable to wear. It’s a beautiful darker purplier red, with tiny indigo accents. The pattern itself is a chintz or chinoiserie style- the height of fashion this season.
The straps were a bit too wideset with this bra after wearing it once so I did my Ewa- inspired strap fix. Now they feel super secure.
The shape is projected but rounded. It looks good with or without clothes on.
Basically I love this bra.
