It fits well and checks all the boxes, but I'm not thrilled with the shape it provides. Also, there is too much fabric in the wings -- they poke into my armpits a little. It's not a dealbreaker, but it itches sometimes.

I think this bra fits fairly well. The cups are narrow enough, the gore tacks, and I get almost enough projection (but not quite enough on the larger left side, where I get some squashing to the side). This seems a bit stretchy for a 32 band, and I needed to start out on the second hole. It looks great from the front, and it gives good support and fairly good lift. Still, I find the silhouette it generates a bit odd and droopy. This is exacerbated as the hours go by, and I end up with an upside down 7 by the end of the day (The pictures I've submitted so far don't really show that.). I think the shape has something to do with the material Curvy Kate uses, as well as the fact that the bottom panel isn't quite large enough to keep lifting the same way throughout the day. I've been wearing the bra, but only with baggier clothes because I'm a bit self-conscious about the shape.
I'm full on bottom, but I'm not sure this is a specifically full on bottom bra since I can tell the lace is a little bit looser than I'd prefer on top. It's not bad, and it doesn't leave me unsupported. It's just not perfect. Also, I think the lacy part is a little too big -- I'd prefer a bigger bottom panel that covers my nipples and smaller upper panels. Still, it's one of the better fits I've found.
I do have one fit problem that I haven't faced before, perhaps because I've been wearing bras too low. It's not quite that the underwire pokes, but I do get fabric from the wings that digs a bit into my armpits. I think maybe the wings are a little higher than I'd prefer.
