I've had this bra for months now, but I completely forgot to add it to Bratabase. Oops.
First of all, I am full on top. My roots are wide and short. I'm splayed and pendulous as well. I'm currently wearing Panache 40Ks altered down to a 36L and Bravissimo 36Ls, so it's no surprise that this doesn't fit me anymore. I grew out of this after only wearing it a couple times and stashed it in my closet and forgot about it until right now.
I find the fit of this to be identical to the fit I get in the 36JJ ...- Flirtelle » Lena Padded Bra (FL6811). The Flirtelle padded bras are the same cut as the Daily Boost. I'm not sure if the newer Flirtelle models will be based on the Daily Boost or the updated Daily Dream.
In both bras I get a super round and uplifted shape. They're probably my ideal in terms of how a bra should look on me. They feel amazing and don't dig in anywhere. I think the Daily Boost cut is perfect for my specific breast shape and checks all the boxes on my "bra requirement" list. I feel like some people would consider it too wide and too shallow towards the middle. This is perfect for my splayed and wide tissue but I can understand why others would hate it.
The only bad thing is that the Daily Boost leaves no room to grow. I can still get away with wearing the Lena on occasion, but this one is way too small and gives me a super pointy and droopy shape from my boobs pulling it down. The straps are also much stretchier on the Daily Boost in comparison to the Lena, so it lets me down even more.
I still wear this under some tops because I find that in Pennsylvania winters, unpadded bras don't provide enough nipple coverage or warmth.
I'll definitely be replacing this with a 38K or 40K. Please head over to my review of the Flirtelle Lena for more fit specifics and pictures of me in the Lena. Read more 254 more words
This bra was very firm in the back, which is certainly a plus for me with my 27" underbust. I actually started this out on the loosest hook for once. Unlike what other women have said, I found it to me more than spacious enough in the cup with a lovely shape and soft padding. Straps are too wide for my shoulders, but this is a common theme.
Bra looks great underneath thin tops and other fussy outfits as the seams are almost invisible.
After owning the bra for several months, I have noticed that the underwires have been designed for someone who is wider than me. A lot wider. ...The wires extend all the way back & around to the flat portion of my back. Also, as a colour comment, placing the white trim on the nude bra & the nude trim on the white bra seems to defeat the purpose of t-shirt, as being busty, my shirts are nearly always stretched & the trim can be quite visible. The bra itself is still in good shape, but I think this style would work better in a size which isn't at the bottom of the band sizes & top of the cup sizes, if the crazy width of my underwires is anything to go by.
This was my first foray into Curvy Kate bras and I want to run back to my beloved Freya!
First, the good. The Daily Boost is a very sturdily made bra; it's hard to describe, but it has the feel of a bra that would last a long time. There's nothing flimsy about it. The 28 band runs about average with other 28s I've worn, neither exceptionally firm, nor loose.
It's a very 'practical' looking bra. Black with gray piping and a little gray bow at the center gore. Even the bow is 'practical' looking, as if the bra really needed to scream, "I'm not for decoration or sexiness!" ...It's could've been cuter. A little cute never hurt anyone.
The seams show just a tiny bit under my t-shirts and probably would fully show in anything very tight. It is not quite a t-shirt bra.
Now, all that said, I'm pretty sure this bra is the complete wrong shape for me. The cups are shallow and somewhat wide. While they don't cut in, or give me quadra-boob, I am forever adjustiing and re-adjusting as my narrow, close-set boobs refuse to work with the cup shape given. Oftentimes, there's is empty space at the apex of the cups, other times it's more towards the center. I wonder if a 28FF might have been better, but the shape seems so wrong, I doubt it.
I think I'll just be buying the Tease Me from Curvy Kate and leaving the rest of their line alone. Read more 141 more words
Bought this bra and only wore it to try it on. This is a very nice basic bra the size is just way too small for me it was so small my breast looked extremely squished and separated! Can't really say about the fit because since it was super small for me it was super uncomfortable.
I love this bra so much, though I have to admit it's not the absolute most perfect fit. It seems to be more designed for women with breasts further apart than mine, as the straps are almost too wide for me and the top of the cups dig in very slightly on my center-full breasts. The quality is impeccable - thick foam cups in a 4 part construction and so very comfortable to wear. I also think the basic, clean look of it is quite sexy! The band is not as stretchy as the Tease Me bras which is good. Fits true to size in the band but maybe a little small in the cups. I would go up a cup size.
This bra is too small for me--I get the "orange in a glass" effect. Padded Curvy Kates run smaller than their unpadded versions.
The material feels nice and the padding is soft and comfortable against the skin.
I don't know why this bra gets so much hate for being ugly, I think it looks nice. Simple and basic with just a touch of contrast to keep it from being boring. I like the gray accents and the flat bows. Don't get me wrong, I love my bright colors and fun prints, but so many bras are overly feminine it's nice to have something different!
I'm really hoping this bra works for me in the next cup up. The fabric is so smooth that this thing is a dream to wear, and it looks like it would be a great t-shirt bra--no lace or other details to show through thin fabric. Unfortunately, it's a bit small for me (gore doesn't quite tack, spilling out of the cups), but it seems to fit true to size.
It gives great lift and shape to my very soft, very pendulous boobs.
I could wear this bra all day! The wire sits flat and secure around my rib cage with nothing digging in. There is no spillage if I bend over, and it has a little bit of a give so I don't feel constricted.
The stitching on the cups can stand out against thin t-shirts and the white detailing makes it imperfect for white shirts, but a thin tank top underneath can solve both problems.
