Ellace appears to be one of those bras people either love or hate. I fall closer to love, but I understand why some may fall into the hate category. It's beautiful, IMO, and confortable - 2 major plusses in my book - but is bouncy as all get out. The fabrics are soft and smooth and very lightweight ("flimsy" I have heard it called), but that endears it to me. I have always had kind of industrial bras until recently, and I love the delicate airiness of Ellace, especially now in the summer. Plus, it actually has enough and the right kind of projection for me, able to ... lift, but also round. The roundness also charms me. It's not as molded as, say a Cleo bra, but rather swoops gracefully down with a cute upturned nose at the end. At least on me - even, but functionally with short roots and FOB. And the wings are low and the wires don't poke my armpits - yay!!
It bounces. It does. But I love it, and choose to turn a blind eye.

This is for the Latte colorway.
This is by far the best Curvy Kate I've ever tried (I've tried a lot, and they've all been varying degrees of abysmal on me).
The cups are very deep. I'm actually struggling to fill them - the stretch lace isn't really being pulled taut at all, even on my larger side.
The gore is wide, and distorts easily - fastening the band causes it to tilt to one side. It's not uncomfortable, and I'm super close set so high gores never lay flat on me anyway, but this feels sort of flimsy/cheaply designed.
The material is very soft. Combined with the deep cups, I'm getting ... essentially no lift in this bra. The shape is fairly round on my larger side, but my breasts are low set, so it's not all that flattering. Despite the fact that I measure around a 34HH, I'm going to try this in a cup size down and see what happens. I'm hoping less depth and filling up the upper cup more will result in a better shape.
The bra is very comfy. The wires are narrow, and not nearly as firm as Panache. The bottom elastic is quite thick, and so it fits firmer.
Probably the main reason I am reordering this bra is the color. The Latte is a few shades darker than the typical 'nude/beige' that most bra companies offer, and while it's not a great match, it's probably the closest I've gotten yet to finding a 'nude' bra for my skin color.
