I wrote a pretty thorough review of this same bra in a different size (34G - Curvy Kate » Ellace Balcony Bra (CK4401) ) so this one will be shorter.
The band was way too big, to an absurd degree. I immediately fastened it on the tightest hooks and it was still loose. The cups of this 34GG were indistinguishable from the 34G I tried on at the same time. Despite all the hype that this bra should basically be exactly what I'm looking for shape-wise, I found it kind of mediocre. The band was loose, the wires too wide, the cups wrinkled on top, cups ... were a bit tall, straps too wide-set. None of these were really drastic, but it adds up to a bra that I'll be returning to Amazon. I think if it had fit properly, it would definitely be a keeper - all the materials were comfortable, and I love the sturdy elastic at the bottom. I do hope they change the stretch lace in future versions; it's much stretchier than the material of the cup and this mismatch makes the bra prone to in-cup quadding.
I tried on the Crimson color way, and it was beautiful - a nice burgundy color without any purple undertones. The elastic at the bottom of the band is a contrasting champagne color on the black version of this bra, but on this version it all matches.
