I’ve got some very mixed feelings about this bra. It was bought from lcl0706 and we thought that it had a chance of fitting because it closed in quickly, making it small for a 30FF, and since I tend to be in 30Fs mostly, a small fitting 30FF had a chance. This bra mostly fits, but lacks in a few areas, but it’s so pretty and I love the purple and sheer black combination.
My shape is average to low set, narrow and shortish roots (or taller roots with deflated tissue making them functionally short still), center full and relatively close set, even to full ... on bottom, with soft and malleable pendulous tissue. I need projection at the wire but only average projection at the apex. My pendulous soft tissue is sometimes deceptive.
Back to the fit. The band is snug but not as tight as my Ellace in 30E. It’s a 3 hook whatsamadoosit. And I actually did it up right on the first try! I kinda like the support of the extra hooks but it feel like it’s an industrial band now! The wires, which don’t seem to be different from the Ellace in 30E when I lay them on top of each other or measure them, but when I put it on and secure it, are quite a bit wider than my breast tissue, and not a tiny amount, but like a finger width or more. Some of my pics illustrate this. I also feel like the side wings and edge of the cup are up in my armpit so unless my arms are in a neutral or reverse position, I get cutting in. The cups are also too big, but because of the way it closes off, I’m not sure if I can size down or not (they almost fit). I actually think I might. It’s more obviously larger on my small side, as the cup does rest nicely over my larger side, especially if I am leaning forward/over, but I can get fingers under both cups easily. And I’m not filling it up a lot more before my period, either, so it’s not really a period bra. But I get great depth at the wire and it gives me a nice supported shape, and I love the peekaboo with certain tops.
So at this point, I do like it, but of all of my new bras, it is not the best fit on me. I’m not sure if I am going to keep or if I’m going to re-list it.

This is a very sexy bra. The top of the cup is fairly closed off, almost too much so for my even fullness boobs. So if you're FOT, this is not the bra for you. It cuts in just a bit on my bigger side while simultaneously wrinkling on my smaller side. It's not a perfect fit, but these minor issues are unnoticeable under a loose tee shirt, and I wouldn't wear this bra under a tight tee shirt due to the lace and seams. I don't think going up to a 30G would solve the problem, as I'm almost certain it would ... be too deep for me.
I love the 3 hook closure and love Curvy Kate for consistently offering that in my size range, along with always offering the little finishing details that make a bra unique. The bows, oh the bows! So amazing without being overdone. The purple trim all the way around to the back! The black satin contrast on the cups and band! Yes! I'd say the band runs tight for CK, it only stretches to 29" and is wearable on the loosest hooks for me, fastenable on the middle hooks. I was worried about this since the bra was not offered online in my usual 28G. I tried the 30FF because it's really cheap on Amazon right now lol.
Being my first foray into CK bras, I'd say, based on other CK reviews, this is a very narrow and projected cup for them. I measured 5.4" wide and 10" deep. The bottom of the cup is excellent, the wires nestle right into my IMF and it has enough immediate projection for me. I don't need to readjust when I bend forward, it holds the girls in there.
This is my first unlined bra in many many years and the fabric is... meh. It could be softer, and may get softer after a washing. I will have to wear it for a day before I can tell whether my skin will get along with it. I'm impressed by the amount of lift and overall roundness I got from it. I also love the very narrow center gore - it's higher than I usually go for but I can get away with it because it's so narrow. Again, will have to see over the course of the day if it starts to dig. If I decide to return it, I don't want to wear it too much. I might keep it just for sexytimes, because it's a very sexy, very sheer black bra.
This will be a fantastic bra for many. It is just screaming for narrow to average width, projected, FOB shapes. I highly recommend it.

This bra is a stunner. I thought it looked pretty on it's own, but when worn, WOW.
I've been wanting to try this one for a while due to my short roots, and I finally got my hands on one! It does not disappoint! The top is very closed off, almost too much for my very short roots, so if you're even or FOT this won't work for you. I do get a bit of in-cup quadboob, I think partially due to the fact that I am between cup sizes and partially due to my tissue being softer after breastfeeding. If I put in my DIMR nipple covers, then ... it pretty much goes away. I love the fact that the wires are softer than the Cleo Lucy, which was my previous bra that fit my shape best. I love that the gore and wings are shorter than other balconettes that I've tried. Also, as much as I love Cleos, I HIGHLYprefer the 3 hook closure to the 2 hooks that Cleo uses (I still don't understand that?). I'd like to try the CK Ellace next maybe, as it is supposed to be like the Bardot, but with stretch lace on top!

Such a pretty bra. Too bad it didn't fit.
