I normally wear a 30G (sometimes a 28GG), but knowing from prior experience that Princess runs small I decided to err on the side of a 30GG. That turned out to be the right cup volume, and the bra is cute, but overall I'm no more impressed with the brand than I was when I was a 36K.
The wires are wearable, though a teeny bit wide for me, and the cups give my narrow/projected shape a flattened look, pushing my breasts towards my armpits.
I'm center heavy, so chose a 30 over a 28 as I expected I would need to alter the gore to compensate for exactly this problem, and I wasn't wrong, but the shape is wrong enough for me that even a gore alteration isn't going to really make it work.
It's not a bad bra, but is just not at all flattering on me. My Freyas have more lower projection so give me a better overall shape.
I'm completely over Curvy Kate bras at this point. They just don't work for me, no matter how much I might want them to.
This bra is not owned any more
