I have this in both the biscotti (beige) and black colorway. I've decided to only keep the beige one.
To start, I have never tried the Curvy Kate Daily Boost (CK1801) , so I can't make comparisons to that model unfortunately.
The first noticeable thing is the band is quite tight; definitely requires an extender for me (currently between 32 and 34 band size). The cup is TTS, if not a touch small. If I had any more volume, I'd definitely be quadding. The top is not stretchy at all, but still accommodating to FoT breasts. I generally get at least some amount of cut-in with all ... UK bras, and don't at all with this. The material is really soft, matte microfiber. The band has some nice detailing that keep the bra from being too boring.
I wasn't crazy about the shape without a shirt on; however, once I tried a shirt on over top it, I really get the whole 'upfront technology' CK is touting in their recent models. The shape is very round and all kinds of uplifted! The wires are a bit wide for me, and I do get some wrinkling by the wire, but it's barely noticeable in my larger breast, and it's not at all noticeable under clothes.
Ultimately, I decided to only keep the beige color, as my lingerie drawer runneth over at the moment and I only have one other 'nude' bra in my current rotation.
Notable difference between the beige and black colorway:
- the band on the black is smaller
- the wires on the beige are a touch wider
- the cups are a bit smaller on the black
- the materials, especially around the wires and band, feel smoother and less irritating on the beige compared to the black
