This is my first Curvy Kate bra and I'm not too enthusiastic to try more. I love the style and the color but the fit is far from ideal. It looks slightly darker than in the pictures and the light blue is more pale.
It is hard to tell if the cups are the wrong shape or just a bit too small. It feels like they have less depth at the bottom which squishes my boobs to the center. So that the gore lifts away from my sternum and the stretch lace is getting stretched a lot. Overall the cup volume is like a 28E/F compared to my Cleo ... and Freya bras. There is no quadding or cutting in and the shape looks very round and lifted under clothes. But the cups feel pretty snug. I really feel the elastic ribbon at the top and I am sure it would be cutting in if my breast tissue wasn't super firm. There is also a noticeable amount of pressure at the sides where my boobs try to be wider then the bra allows them to be.
The wires are the same shape as the ones in the Cleo Marcie but not as stiff. Which makes them fit slightly wider but they don't poke me anywhere. The band could be tighter. I tried it on middle hook but this makes the wires too wide and the cups feel even smaller. I expected the light blue elastic at the bottom to be somewhat stiff (at least it looked stiff to me) but it is actually very soft and comfy.
I can't say much about the quality but the whole thing feels stretchier then my other bras. Which is also why think a 28FF would be too unsupportive in the cups. I am still keeping this one hoping that the cups will stretch out a little but also because it was quite cheap and the shape under clothes looks really nice.
I had the straps too short in the pictures which caused the band to ride up.
The cups fit better with an extender but then the straps are too wide set.

My shape (still figuring it out a bit): Average root width, tall roots, projected, even fullness, very soft breast tissue.
This bra is very nearly perfect. The wire width is good, the projection is good, the band is good. It is very comfortable to wear, and very pretty with a touch of sexiness. Shape-wise it is not quite there for me - while it is very accommodating to tall roots (its stretch lace top is forgiving and soft) the cups themselves are not quite firm enough to combat my softness. I need them to more firmly push my tissue upwards, so the lace top section has something to grip ... to. As it is, the lace folds down a little where my tall roots push it away. I also do not quite find the cups sturdy enough to hold me fully in place - this would not be a problem for firm breasts, or even mildly soft ones, but for my ultra-soft breasts it means I need to swoop and scoop a couple of times a day. It also means I don't get the round shape I want (though tall roots plus soft breasts mean that shape is v. difficult for me to achieve in an unlined bra).
With all that having been said, because I am like a child and this bra is that perfect combo of pretty plus sexy, I am keeping it. The fit issues are more aesthetic than anything else and I do love the look of the whole thing.
