    The lilac-lavender color is my favorite ever, bright and feminine in contrast with the cornflower-blue embroidery and delicate eyelet lace. The sheer, lacy upper portion of the cup is pretty and doesn't cut in at all to upper fullness, while the band is pleasantly firm and supportive; I also appreciate that it's a three-hook closure, which I think is more slimming and flattering in the way it sits on the back. The straps have just a hint of lavender sheen to them, which is a pretty detail and makes the bra look more expensive than it is. The shape it gives is a natural teardrop, however the wires ... are too wide for my shape and I've never worn it... still has tags attached! As I have lots of bras at the moment I'll be passing this one on... I think it would be a beautiful and versatile unlined bra for someone who'd get more use out of it than me! It's not a cleavage bra by any means, but it does an excellent job at separating and uplifting, and the balconnette cut feels secure and comfortable.

    Pros: embroidery and color are pretty. The fabric is sturdy, the band is fantastic. It fits more comfortably than my Freya Mishcha 28. I prefer 3 hooks for stability, so I appreciate that about Curvy Kate. I feel very supported in this bra, and would find it more than suitable for everyday wear were it not for the cons about to follow. I think the band would hold up well under wear, as the stretch isn't terribly dramatic.

    Cons: the straps are WAY too wide. They come up under my armpits and I'm certain there would be chafing if I wore it for a couple hours. I have quite ... a bit of projection and despite Curvy Kate being known for their shallowness, my breast tissue seems to fit well inside the cup - it doesn't give me a flattened look at all.

    The other major con is that the cups are simply too wide for me. This bra (and CK in general) are made for wide set, wide root, shallow breasts. The underwire wing went far beyond the end of my breast root. The wideness didn't seem to make a big difference under clothing, but I couldn't wear this due to discomfort, regardless.

    I also don't care for the shape this bra gave my breasts. It sort of drags them downwards - I have very soft breasts, so I need I rely heavily on my bra to shape me.

    I got this in the blue/lavender color from brastop-- will return as it does not properly fit. I think I need a 28H in Curvy Kate's unpadded styles.

    Band is great, straps adjust fully, and the color is very pretty. Other than the quad boob, this is a great bra.

    Measured brand new, after trying on for fit. When I stretch the band, I stretch it as far as it can go, so keep that in mind for my measurements.
