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.
