This is my first multi part cup bra. I was desperate for a bra that fits. The closest I had was Elomi Bijoux, and others recommended the Cate. Cate gets a lot of great reviews. For me, even with the pretty lace, it feels a little, well, industrial. The band is power mesh, so it doesn't stretch a lot. On the plus side, this makes a very supportive bra. On the minus side, if you have sensitive skin, you may not feel as comfortable in this one. I am close set, pendulous, and have wide roots. This bra fits me very well and keeps me well projected, which was quite a surprise to me at first. The shape it gives me is like that of a 1950's bullet bra. Under clothes, my shape looks fine, so no worries there. Others commented that the lace did not show through clothing. I have some tops that the lace absolutely shows or the horizontal seam shows, so I'm quick to change either the top or the bra, in that case. I will be wearing it more often during winter, when I don't need to think about such things. Overall, I like it, but would not buy another.

    I have learned to stop caring about a seam or two showing, as I massively prefer non-padded bras and molded bra's rarely work for anyone. I just learned to accept the seams. Atleast what's showing through my shirts is a seam instead of a gaping cups and "rolls of fat" which are only made by wearing a badly fitting bra. But alot of the time I find the seams simply don't show and because I'm looking at it myself, it looks ways more noticeable to me and not to the rest of the world!
    I'm confident you will find more and better fitting bra's that you prefer to wear more often!

  • Check out Goddess Keira and Kayla. They are the same cut as Elomi's Cate/Caitlyn (and the companies share a corporate parent) but have been coming out with some really fun and bold patterns lately. Note that Goddess uses US bra sizing, so your UK 34F would be a US 34G. I know that doesn't take care of your biggest issues with the bra but I know how you feel about Cate's, uhm, aesthetic.
