Of my recent Curvy Kate purchases, I was looking forward to this one the most -- stretch lace, forward facing technically, gold band all sound like it makes for an amazing bra. However, this one was the most disappointing both in terms of fit and aesthetics.
The band is really tight, so much so I wouldn't be able to wear it without an extender at least for awhile. The cups are also really large; I might benefit from a cup size down, but I doubt I'd try it. The wires are much too wide for my shape, and the bottoms of the cup are shallow, leading to great wrinkling by the wires. All this combines to provide a shape that is best described as 'rounded torpedo'.
The stretch lace is *quite stretchy*,which I'm happy to see Curvy Kate utilizing in their bras, but it ends up looking sloppy somehow.
I applaud CK for their attempt to branch out in their bras, but this is one that will require some work before it's perfected. Well...for me, anyway.
This bra is not owned any more
