Frustration/Impulse purchase right after receiving 28G Tango, and the next day Tango was 2 sizes too small. Was watching this one, and kind of interested in the colourway but suddenly finding nothing fit at all, sealed the deal.
Like Tango ll, the top is too closed off and pushes into my tall roots, and cup rides down into my side heavy breasts that were just ...getting by with the little bit of space this style affords. Unlike the extremely round Tango plunge, these cups are wide & super shallow on the side. However there tons of nice depth at the wire and lower cup volume here, yet gore stabs for no apparent reason? At least it's not mad at my functionally FOB short breasts, I'll take it.
Net is rough, unsure how breathable it is in this high humidity. The lace on top has sleek embroidery with smooth threads; it does not stretch at all but has a barely stretchy elastic inside upper band. Upper band is supper small compared to the amount of upper or apex volume I have, it kind of pulls the cups into a bad position so will be removing/adjusting this silly thing STAT.

I will admit that I'm not keen on the aesthetic of this style, but the fit and support is great. It's a fuller coverage plunge, a bit Elomi Matilda-esque, with 4-part cups. The shape it gives is separated and contained within each cup with a decent amount of projection. It is made of rigid, non-stretch laminated mesh with top cup embroidery; the fit can feel quite neat, especially along the neckline if your breast tissue is fuller and firmer like mine. The brand has a fit tip on their site to suggest using the j-hook if you experience this digging in along the neckline, and I agree it ...definitely helps improve the fit. It isn't something I'd generally buy based on the look of it, and the fact it's fuller coverage which I'm not a fan of on myself, but I feel like it's a great addition to Curvy Kate's range and may become one of those bras I keep in my rotation for practicality. I also really like the cross-over centre front; I sit at a desk most of my day and this little feature makes it pretty much a bandless bra so is really comfy on my upper stomach!
