    Oh good god this was painful! The tightness of the band is something i could deal with, but the tips of the underwires all dug into my ribs. (and that was without breathing in). I like the embroidery and bow details. The cups are just too deep and too narrow for me. I'm quite disappointed with the dimensions of the cups, i had planned to buy more from their range as they have such pretty colours.

    • I guess I should've read your review before trying the Ella bra and Flirtelle's Petal. I too really like the way CK's bras look but ran into the same problem: painful. I even tried an extender, though I never really thought the band was too tight, and actually it made the tips of the underwires dig in even more as the band rode up my back.

      While the experience was a painful exercise in futility it's comforting to know I wasn't the only one who ran into this problem.

    I thought this bra would fit me the worst out of the Curvy Kate bras I ordered, but it's not as poor as the others. I think the smaller difference between the two fabrics, that of the solid portion at the bottom and the mesh at the top, aids it's fit. The top still wrinkles and gapes a lot, the wires are too wide for me, and the straps are too wide set so they cut into my arms/armpits. The bottom of the cups is filled and until the diagonal line, it fits pretty well. The embroidery is beautiful, though, and I love the color scheme.

    This feels like a bra that fits--the band feels comfortable and I fill out the cups--but it gives me torpedo boobs like nobody's business.

    First bra bought after measuring myself 29/33. The cup seems good, but the band is way too small. I cannot close the band without an extender. The gore portion also pushes in far too much. The far separation of the straps was also bothersome. Otherwise, this bra was beautiful and I really wished it would fit me!

    Nice, cute bra. Soft, comfortable material. Wires are comfortable. Cups are a little bit separate.
