    Very short, projected, slightly narrow, close set, center full, even breasts....

    This is Bardot....improved. The band!! Ellace has a firm piece of peach elastic to which the cups and lace are sewn. This elastic dramatically improves the weight distribution of my breasts. In Bardot, the wire "dug in" under my most projected breast. Ellace's elastic prevents that pain. Wow.

    Although I don't yet have a reliable method to measure this, Ellace feels more immediately projected than Bardot. However, this feeling may be more closely related to the weight distributing effect of the firm, peach elastic. Whatever it is, Ellace feels more supportive than Bardot.

    Ellace's fabrics are softer and smoother. Mesh ... is not my favorite, but Ellace's mesh is soft! Not quite as soft as the mesh Lejaby Mellisia band, but considerably softer than Bardot. I would not recommend Bardot to those with fabric sensitivities, but Ellace may be acceptable.

    The stretch lace across the top of the cup may be a problem for soft breast tissue. My shorties present in-cup quadding at the seam. However, this may be caused by my prominent nipple sitting above the apex. I would prefer a stretch lace with elasticity more closely resembling the mesh lower cup. That may come in Ellace 2.0 ;-) This is one detraction, but it won't prevent me from wearing this very comfortable, supportive bra.

    Ellace can accommodate taller roots than Bardot because the cup is .5" taller and the top of the cup is stretch lace rather than mesh. However, Ellace remains a wonderful option for short-rooted, projected breasts.

    The 2nd 30G Bardot I ordered will be returned and replaced with another 30G Ellace. :-)

      This looks good on you! Do you find that the cups run true to size?

    • They feel very true to size. However, if you have tall roots, you may need to size up.

    • Thanks! As someone who's still trying to find my ideal size, I think I may try a 30FF based on your review. I'm also short-rooted.

    • I'm curious how a 30FF would fit, too. I look forward to your review!! :-) :-) I have the straps tightened more than they should be. A 30FF may fit me, too. :-)

      Nevermind, it's "not available to purchase in your region" - solves that!

      You are saved...."not available in your region."

      Love4Pollinators and lcl0706 , the two of you are such terrible influences on money I don't have... but I am grateful for your insight, experience, and guidance. :)

      thanks for the review! nice to hear something nice about a curvy kate :)

      I do think you'd be much more comfortable in this in a 30FF.

      I also loved this bra but it was a bit wobbly on my 40HH breasts. You can also try the Curvy Kate Florence Balcony Bra (CK8001), which I found to fit exactly like the Ellace but with a non-stretch top portion.

      Wonderful look on you. Just another bra I would love to have but does not come in my size.

    The Great Amazon Prime Wardrobe Try-On, Part 3
    My shape: full on bottom, soft tissue, narrow shoulders/roots.
    Fit and Appearance: See review I did for 30GG Ellace, which fit me the best by far. :) This size was woefully too small and quaddy, which I sort of knew when I chose it as part of my Prime Wardrobe box. I figured it couldn't hurt to get more measurements.

    This almost worked for me, but alas! I get this weird gaping at the very top of the wing under my underarm area. Not gaping at the side of the boob (which would mean the cup was too wide) just gaping at the very top stretchy part of the wing. It was so bizarre, I've never had that problem before. Finally, through trial and error I figured out it was because the straps are simply set too wide. If I put the straps inward, the problem disappears. So sad because otherwise this bra is a good fit with lots of immediate projection.

    I went up a cup size (and down a band) because the 32F seemed to have a lot of promise for my deep/narrow/center-full shape (especially for a Curvy Kate), but this 30G seems hardly any deeper.

    Used to fit

    I was encouraged to try a 30FF: it did not fit. So, I ordered another 30G.

    Here is the review from the 1st 30G review:
