This bra is very cute in person. It has the look of denim and the pattern is not rough but rather textured, still softer though. The measurements for the wires are of the actual wire length because I can slide the wires in the bra to give me .75" of space at the gore or wings I'd I so choose. I moved them to give me space at the gore, which still didn't tack. I just ordered a size up, have others experienced this in this style because it's not very padded/semi soft. The band is very stretchy. I measure a 31 and bought a 30 band, it ...feels fine but for those who like a very tight band, size down in larger cups H+. I'd expect cups under H to have a truer band. I still get a good amount of quad on both my larger and smaller boob. I hope the 30J will give the 11.5" laying perm. even though my 90° is 14" because im semi soft. If it doesn't fit, I'm going to get over my camera shyness and do a fit request. The wires are medium/narrow which is what I am although I wouldn't mind them narrower, but perhaps not until I fix this severe t.migration in my armpits and back considering I was in a 34DD 😳. The wires I have to make sure I pull up all the way because of my high set bust, I wonder if it'll stay that way, but I still had quads so I still had to size up. The interior is comfortable even though the seams, seem like they would be uncomfortable. The cup height was not bad on my short roots, that might change in the J, plus I have center fullness. The replacement will be here Wed, I will let you all know then, hopefully no fit issues.

This bra is perfect for me .I have been looking for this fit for about a year after I became to big for freya . Spent hundreds on all kinds recommended biggest waste of money was ELOMI brand people kept telling me to try different styles uhh what a waste any way curvy Kate just arrived today and its perfect perfect perfect I'll let you know if things change shift stretch or loose support as the week goes on but I'm feeling fantastic and loving this curvy Kate brand 😊😊
First impression, oh my God I think they've done it! This is what I've been waiting for in a padded bra in an H+ cup. I've had such trouble with CK in the past but boy am I glad I stuck it out. Gore height is perfect and holds them in place. The padding is soft (not stiff like deco) and the three part cup keeps the boobs from splaying out too far (looking at you Fantasie Rebecca). Sizing is consistent with other CK styles. I'm almost always a 34HH in all the CKs Ive tried. I just havent kept most of them because of ...bad shape and too much fabrc in my armpit. CK seems to be changing their fit to be perfect for my shape! It's a dream come true. I've always loved their asthetic and this bra is no exception. I will buy future colorways and the Daily Dream when it comes out. Pretty sure its the same bra, just a basic version. And for the doubters, the only similarity this has to the Daily boost is the soft materials used. The cup shape is completely different and wonderful. So wonderful that I posted pics for the first time (shirt on, not that confident yet). Update: Had this bra for a couple weeks now and I find that I am reaching for it a lot. I try not to wear it two days in a row but I've definitely worn it 7or 8 times already. I do have to adjust sometimes but thats just me being a perfectionist. I'm FOT and they move around a bit but never quad. This bra produces nice cleavage and did I mention the comfort? Can't wait until the Daily dream comes out in July. Hope I don't run this one into the ground by then. Read more 202 more words
Yes! The bra came early and I'm so excited that it fits, I pushed the wires to give me .75" at the gore it still doesn't tack, but I have close set boobs so I expected that. When I did push it in I only had at most 4mm of overflow so still good besides it's not there when not tacked. Because this is CK the wires are wider than I need but not too much and I do have 1 finger of space if I pull it all the way up to my IMF and 1.5 fingers when my boobs push them down. the cups are also ...a touch too tall. Despite all of this it is the best fit I have gotten to date, so I'm a little teary eyed lol. I can actually keep this bra because: *I'm not quadding out of it unbelievably *the wires aren't so firm that I have to reverse scoop or risk marks due to my center fullness *the straps aren't so tight my arms lose circulation * and best of all... the cups aren't so tall that the bra is stupidly too big and too small (〒︿〒) I am happy but I still haven't found the perfect one yet.
Please check the actual measurements page because the measurements shown and my personal measurements are different due to them being averaged (as of one now I'm the only measurement). So far so good with this bra. IT'S SUPER COMFY. I mean they could do more to make it more comfortable but this bra feels so nice and soft on my boobs, so I actually like wearing it. The padding gives support and a nice shape under the shirt. I find the cup fit a little odd as it takes some rearranging to fit into the determined shape, but once there they seem to stay pretty good.
I do ...get the orange in a glass effect where some of the bra on the bottom goes to waste because it's impossibly shallow, and of course the cup is too tall and there's a bit of extra material on the sides too. This bra could lose some weight https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />
If I should encounter any other issues with this bra past the hour I've worn it, I will update. I am curious as to if a bigger size would be an even better fit but then I might really have too much bra. I'm also curious how a size down would fit, just for curiosity's sake. They just need to have a bit more inner room near the gore for a better fit (i.e. the gore would tack if they did, right now its a few cm away but not too bad). Also there's a lot of bra on the sides but it doesn't really bother me. Possible new favorite bra right here https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Also, I saw that they were planning to remake the Daily Boost range and I'm betting it will be based off this bra.
Disappointed that this bra is more of a light indigo denim color than the bright one in the stock pictures.
I'd like to see this bra be more projected. It's not bad but it's still better suited for someone a little more shallow than me I think. I notice that if I lay back the gore tacks easily and my boobs fill the empty space on the sides. As long as CK continues to improve I think they've got an ok start here. Read more 278 more words
Another bra I snagged during a Zulily sale, and yet another bra that isn't narrow or projected enough for me :') I'm getting closer to a good fit, though. I'm guessing I need around 14cm in width and somewhere upwards of 27cm depth. Hopefully Polish bras will work for me; I'm still waiting for my Comexim order to cross the ocean and fall into my loving arms. I also really want to try more Cleos.
Anyway! On to the bra itself. It's much prettier in person than in pictures. I got the Denim pattern, and the material on the cups is designed to have a faux denim look, but ...the color itself has a slight purplish hue to it. They are also (thankfully) not made out of denim, but a soft, lightly padded foam material that is pretty comfortable. The trim is a cutesy little polka design in purple, blue, and yellow that wasn't readily noticible in the pics on Zulily. It makes the bra feel youthful and summery. At 73cm stretched, the band is a bit loose for me, and has the standard 3 rows of 3 hooks. It's true the cups aren't narrow enough for me, but they're not trying to wrap around my back either (squinting at you, ck princess). It's always hard for me to tell in foam or padded cups, but I think I'm getting a bit of empty space at the bottom. I've definitely got some center quadding, because the bra closes off rather quickly and I have tall, center-full breasts. There's also this strange wrinkling at the center of the left cup, but I'm thinking that's just the result of loose top fabric? The gore tacks at the bottom, but sort of floats at the top. I believe this is due to the wire channels having a good bit of extra space in them. I try to shimmy the wires more into the gore, but it seems like my breasts push them back out towards the wings during wear, haha.
The bra is very comfy for daily wear, even given it's lack of proper fit. My breast tissue is soft-ish and well-behaved, and I don't have particularly sensitive skin, so a majority of fit issues aren't painful or irritating for me. I'm pretty happy with it, all things considered, especially given how cheap it was. Read more 283 more words
This bra was extremely pleasantly surprising. Narrower wires and cut-and-sew cup construction, which accomodates more projection than the vast majority of UK padded bras I've tried. The shape is *perfectly* round with gentle cleavage... very flattering under fitted clothing. I wouldn't mind if the little purple bows, just like those on the CK Bardot, happen to peak out from beneath a tank top, they're a lovely detail https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I appreciate the unusual combination of the purple ribbons with the casual denim fabric, however I have to say the pastel polka-dot fabric is kind of juvenile and cheap-looking if you look at it up close. Oh well, it's still very cute as a whole, and the matching panty makes for an adorable and aesthetically presentable set, even though this bra is so incredibly soft it's been designated as my instant go-to "comfort" bra for long days. If you are considering this model, also look into CK's new Daily Dream as they're supposedly the same cut. I'm thrilled with this one!
This bra was a great fit. Sadly, the one I received from Brastop was defective and it had to go back. I didn't get a chance to measure it before sending it back. I normally wear a 30G in most brands, but always a different size in Curvy Kate. In this, I needed a 30GG. The denim print is really a nice change for me and I wish I could have kept it. It had just the right amount of padding and good lift without any cutting or overflow. I was surprised because the cups seemed high on me, but at the same time, gaping was minimal. The ...Denim colorway (old season) actually fit me better than the Navy dot colorway (new season) that I tried in the same size. The Navy had excess space under the armpit and more "strap gap".
I have to rate this bra "poor" for quality because of the 3 defects it had: 1. The top horizontal padded section of the cup above the seam was dented in and sewn badly. There was no way it would lie flat and it showed through my shirts like a layer of quadboob. 2. The band beneath the cup (there's only about 1cm) was sewn unevenly so one side was longer than the other. 3. The inner bottom cup section on one side was sewn poorly so that the outer material had wrinkles/bunches in it. It was only that one section of the one cup. Read more 138 more words
