    I have grown slightly out of the 28D - Curvy Kate » Ellace Balcony Bra (CK4401) so I tried the Ellace one cup size larger, and also the 28DD - Curvy Kate » Jewel Balcony Bra (CK3401) , which is said to be a similar cut as the Ellace.

    The 28DD Jewel fits great, but the 28DD Ellace does not work well. The cup is too tall, cup height is about 5.2" or 13.2cm, which is a great increase from the 28D Ellace (4.4" or 11cm) and also a lot taller than the 28DD Jewel (4.5" or 11.5cm). Why would the cup height increase ... almost 1" in the next size up? Ellace is known for being good for short roots, but this cup height appearently does not work for short-rooted people in my size.

    I wonder whether it is because of production inconsistency. Is Curvy Kate sometimes inconsistent in their bras? Did they just change the cut of Ellace? Should I exchange it for another one in the same size to see it the cup gets shorter, or should I skip Ellace and go for the sister cuts like Curvy Kate Madagascar Balcony Bra (CK3701) or Curvy Kate Bardot Balcony Bra (SG3101) to see if they fit? The sister cuts are pretty difficult to find though.

    • In the 40-ish Curvy Kate's I've tried, they have been the most consistent dimensionally. Although I have not tried Jewel, Ellace is taller, more accommodating of taller roots than Bardot, Madagascar, and Florence. Florence and Ellace are the most similar, but Florence is a bit shorter. Please know I'm speaking from the 30FF/G size of the range. It is entirely possible your sizes are built differently. Best of luck!

    • Just checked my photos: Florence is shorter than Madagascar and Bardot, too. So, for shortest cup, Florence may be a good choice.

    • Love4Pollinators Thank you very much! I will look into your suggestions. Florence looks so nice, I wish it comes in 28 band.

    • Usually black fabrics are smaller, but there was not a difference between Black Florence and Blush Florence. Purple and turquoise were dimensionally the same, too. I had hoped a black Florence would provide a slightly smaller band. Nope.

    • While I"ve never found a CK i could wear, I LOVED Panache Floris when I was a 32J. But when I gained and became a 32JJ, it doesnt fit nearly as well - too wide, poking me in the arms. Still good projection, but it didnt grow exactly the same way I did.
