I couldn't resist when the Curvy Kate Unwind bralette popped up on zalando at a sale price. I had very low expectations. I had doubts that a simple bralette without wires could do much for my 32J boobs.

It turned out that it is much better than I thought. I don't have experience with other bralettes but I was surprised at how nice it looked and what a decent shape I get in it. It does not look much worse under a t-shirt than a regular bra. The support is okay for a bralette I guess. The most uplift comes from the straps. The band fits nicely and is true to size in my opinion. The "cups" are a good size for my boobs, I don't think that they have to fit differently. I get slight overspill / cleavage at the center but I expected that since there is no gore to separate my boobs. I really like the stripes on the underbust band, too bad this band just rides up. I only managed to have it look like on my pictures for like 2 minutes, then it started to roll up. It does not bother me when rolled up but it diminished the look. The fabric is lightweight and soft.

I think I would wear this bra at home, for example when I come home at late afternoon and just want to remove my regular bra but don't want to be braless during my evening. I don't think I would wear the bra to go out or do much in it. Mostly lounging, watching tv, reading, laying on couch and so on. Also I can imagine this working as a sleep bra. For daily activities I wouldn't wear it since I fear that my boobs would fall out if I move too much and I get neck pain from the strap pressure on my shoulders. While a bra with wires and a firm band can and should do 80% of work to lift the breast this bra would do much less.

A few words on the look. I absolutely love how this bra looks on me. I don't know what it is. It is nothing npecial. I don't even like black very much. But it looks kinda classy and a bit sexy? I don't know but I will keep it and update here once I have worn it a bit more.

  • This looks really nice, you are right! It tempts me to try it too!

  • Very well defined bra personality !

    You're right. One needs a bra that's just there while watching how cornflakes absorb milk on a saturday morning...

    I wear this bra now for a lazy Sunday morning. It is amazing. No discomfort. the only thing that happens with wear is the overspill at the center, so it shows like quadboob under a Shirt. it is not too bad and since I only wear it at home it does not bother me much. Also I recommend this as a sleep bra. it felt nice when I was laying down.

    Wow! Looks great on you. They did well!
    I wonder if it would work as a good alternative to my Bravissimo zara bralettes ...

  • martka00 Oh the Zara Bralette… now I want to try one of these too! I love the thick straps on them.

  • alisa I’ve got 4 of the Zara bralettes: 2 in black and 2 in lilac 😍 I wish they’d do one in rose or pale yellow 🤩

  • Does that keyhole at the base of the bra bother you? It looks like it wouldn't be comfortable.

  • I also love this bra. I sewed the top together a little more and I get a bit more uplift and no spillover, but I still get the band rolling up. I want to clone mine and make my own in pink.

    Also, I have worn this on long road trips and it is great. I love the cutout because it reduces boob sweat.

  • martka00 Omg the lilac! I wanted that one but now it is gone, they only have black or neon orange left :( I was worried that it would be too small since the biggest size they do is 32HH/J, so I never bothered. But I think if I only wear it at home quadboob wont' be such an issue. I would also love rose / pink or if they bring back the lilac :D looks like it sold well. Do you wear it instead of a regular bra or just for lounging?

    Sovavosi No it did not bother me yet. The "gore" part does not lie anywhere close to my sternum anyway (not like on the model) so it just floats. At first I was scared my boobs would "fall out" there but they didn't.

  • cupandahalf I don't think I could sew it together some more on my bra because it's already kinda small fitting. Or could I get rid of the overspill with that? It would be interesting if you could add a picture of your alternation? I'd also love the pink bra. CK has to make it for us.

    The neon orange is really neon.. personally I didn’t like it.
    Lilac is great and I bought also matching pants. It works okay under some of my white tshirts but not the thin ones so not bad...
    I wear it as a normal bra when I suffer from my reflux and during weekends. Sometimes I do also wear M&S dd bralette but it’s top like so I don’t like it too much
    I’m currently 32F/30FF in bravissimo and 30FF-G is my size to go in the bralette, so the 32HH-J might be on the small size I guess but if you’ll have a chance to try it, you should definitely give it a go.

    alisa I’ll upload pics of it after I wash it later this week.

    alisa , It looks comfy, but for a sleep bra, I have to have better separation. I am a side sleeper, and it is painful for me when my breasts flop around or, in this case, just spill out in the middle. :/

    oooh this looks like a great lounge bra!

  • alisa I added pictures of my sewed up more bra to mine: 40J/JJ - Curvy Kate » Unwind Bralette (CK011110)
