    This bra is absolutely gorgeous! I have it in lavender, and it is about the prettiest colored bra I own. The fabric is thin and fairly soft (not cottony soft, but soft for a lace bra). The lace detailing is very fine, and not very scratchy (unlike the Curvy Kate Princess, which can be a little abrasive to sensitive skin). The lace around the top of the cup and the underwire is incredibly feminine.

    I wish this bra fit me, but unfortunately the cup size is too small. I know that the Emily runs a bit large, and I think that is definitely true-- I am a 28FF in ... most bras, and this bra is a 28F. It almost fits, however like many of us, one of my ladies is a bit larger than the other, and in this bra that is too much of an issue. Because the cup size was a bit too small, the gore didn't sit flat against my chest and there was a great deal of quad-boob for that boob, and a very small amount of quad boob for her smaller sister. I expect, however, that in the proper size the gore would rest flat on my sternum.

    I like the shape the bra creates, ignoring the quad-boob for a moment-- the style is a bit plunge-y to me, and it creates a bit of cleavage. Not a lot, but just a nice little teardrop mound. Again, in the proper size, I think I would like the natural shape it creates.

    The band is reasonable, though I wish it was a little firmer. The Curvy Kate Princess I have is quite a bit firmer than this one--the fabric seems slightly more elastic-y by comparison. I think it's a good fit for a 28, but I tend to prefer slightly more firm 28 bands. It has two hooks--I wish there were three, however it looks like FF and G cups in the 28 band size DO have three hooks. I think this would make the bra a little more secure.

    Overall, I like the feel and shape of this bra. I desperately wish it fit. I wore it for a few hours an evening, and because the cups were too small it definitely wasn't something I could just ignore. I have ordered this bra in a 28FF, and look forward to wearing it.

    This bra is simply gorgeous and fits me quite well, even though it's thin and nipples can be an issue if I don't swoop and scoop enough. I am even fullness and average on the shallow/projected scale with wideish roots. This gapes at the top a bit, more so now that I've owned it for longer (I'm on the middle hook) so I'd recommend it for those a bit more FoT because I don't feel that supported in it.

    I've only worn it for about 15 minutes now, but the size is spot on, even though I was sure it'd be a little too small cupwise. I really like the vibrant colour, and the little bows on the top of the cups.
    The band is great this far, even though I probably will have to take it in later. The shoulder straps, however are too far apart for me, and they are very elastic, wich make them dig in into the shoulder... I've tried to loosen them, but then I don't get such a good support and the preasure on the sternum gets a little uncomfortable. Perhaps this would have worked better with boobs that are not as heavy?
    I thought this could have been a nice everyday bra, but because of the straps, I doubt it.

    Back when I was an F cup still, I loved this bra. Of the CK bras I own, it's been the most generous in cup stretchiness as I've put weight back on and gone up in cup size.

    It no longer fits AT ALL in the cups, but, thanks to my good experience with it when it did, I'm probably going to buy another Emily bra in my new size.

    The wires really dig in to my sternum and left a bruise after 4 or 5 hours of wear. I think bending the wires so they curve around my body will help fix the problem (if not, bending the wire away from the sternum definitely will). The top of the cup wrinkles a bit— I'm not sure if I need to go down a size or the bra is just wrong for my breast shape.

    Also, this is on the tighter end of 28 bands!

    My first ever bra that FITS! I'm so excited! I got this initially in 32DD (hello from Asia, the land of clueless when it comes to bras) and in Coral. It was gorgeous, but too big in the band for me. Exchanged it for 28F in Midnight, which is pretty much perfect. I think this is the end of my bra straps falling off my shoulders due to band riding up! No quadboobs either, which is pretty much a first!

    I love the lace that's so pretty and soft, and the gold details are just gorgeous. We don't get these in this part of the world. Anything above a B cup automatically looks like granny bras, the lace designs are frequently awful, and they don't even come in anything smaller than 34 backs.

    The only thing I think this bra lacks is more lift, but as a delicate, sheer, lacy thing, I think this is pretty much as good as it gets.

    Pros: This bra is SUPER cute, and a really pretty color. It's the first bra I've had where the wires are actually wide enough to get the whole boob (instead of squeezing tissue into the armpit). I think I fill the bottom of the cup well.

    Cons: The top lace half gets wrinkly (not sure if this is by design, or because I don't have enough breast tissue on top), and with the added lace design, this will be hard to wear with a tight-fitting shirt. The straps seem just a little far apart, it sometimes feels like they might slip off my shoulders, but it's never actually happened. ... The biggest issue is that the band is TIGHT. I think it's too tight, because it hurts my sternum at times and leaves a pretty red mark after I take it off.

    Overall: This bra is definitely tighter than I would like, sometimes to a point where it is uncomfortable. I'm still going to keep it because it fits my breasts better than the rest of my bras (which doesn't say much). The wrinkled lace up top might be an issue, I may see if I can alter it by stitching the corners down.
