So, almost all unlined Curvy Kate bras in this size range are narrow, projected, and FOT, but not all equally so. The Princess is actually slightly less projected than other unlined CKs I’ve tried, including its sister cut the Portia – while it still works fine for my above average projection, I can see it working for someone with average projection as well (not for shallow shapes, though). Also, while I get vertical creases near the straps in most unlined CKs due to the fact that they are FOT and I am even, in the Princess I only get it on my smaller side; on the larger side it is a visually perfect fit. So I would say this is one of Curvy Kate’s more versatile cuts, in the sense that the demand for FOT and projection is less extreme, and I am not surprised it is the brand’s top seller.

The downsides of this bra are 1) the lace at the top is super scratchy, way more so than any other unlined bra I’ve tried, although it does go away somewhat with wear; 2) My nipples often end up being in the sheer upper part, which can be uncomfortable if they brush up against something. It also has a bit less center fullness than the Portia. But overall I still find it pretty comfortable, and the fact that the night/silver color combination is gorgeous doesn’t hurt. The band fits true to size.
