    I don't know if this fits. It feels kinda okay, but the cups cut into my armpits, does that mean the straps are too wide? I don't think I have any quadboob, ut my breasts are much farther apart than they are in any other bra.

    Used to fit

    So like the other Emily, this one is more true to 28 band-which is odd for any CK bras. As with the other, I had to have the band manually entered because it is apparently wrong-but again, while it *can* stretch to 29," it begins to warp as it does so. I do not count the extra stretch when it's clearly warping the bra if you pull it too much. I think part of the issue with measuring the band is that many people count that extra stretch anyway, perhaps because they're not aware that it's warping the bra, or perhaps because they figure that it can in ... fact stretch that much. Doesn't make it good for the bra though.

    The cup on this Emily is perfect. I'd say it fits like my 28H Romance, but with a less stretchy band. Comfier than the 28H, likely because a too small cup can make a band seem tighter than it is. In reality, the bands of the two stretch the same amount (as they should, since they're the same bra in another color and a cup size up), but it doesn't bother my fit because it fits in the cup.

    It's a very interesting and intricate bra. I am fairly impressed actually because you don't see this much intricacy from CK usually. I don't believe they have any other bras in their current collection that are quite as intricate-though the Dare and Daisy chain are closer than the rest of them. I like it, though I am not in love with the funny taupey colored detailing. The blue is very pretty though.

    For $9, I couldn't pass it up (obviously!). It'll get worn for sure, even if it's not my favorite bra. So far it's pretty comfy, but I haven't worn it for very long yet.

    I can't stand this bra. I got a band size down because it stretches and one cup up because I read that people who are full on top should size up. When I first tried it on it fit but as I wore it into the day I coud feel my boobs spilling out of the cups. The wires run past my armpit and I cannot fill the cups toward the sides. After a few hours the material gets really uncomfortable and the bra always shifts from when I first put it on and the cups cut into my armpits. I also don't like that the center gore is extended with non wire material up. I am full on top and it gets itchy. It also gives a pointed boob effect. The only positive point is that although the straps are far apart, they have a good grip and don't fall down. I don't recommend this bra to people who have a close set chest since the cups are really wide.

    The back seems normal to large for a 28. The cups are on the large side, too.

    It is very soft and comfortable to wear. the central gore is too wide for me, as is the placement of the straps.

    I'm starting to get confused by my curvy kate size. I thought this bra fit well for the first couple days, but then realized that it gives my boobs a sad shape. Then I realized my nipples (which aren't particularly high set on my breasts at all) sit right in the middle of the sheer section, flattening the top of my cheat. I think going a cup up to a 28J would be perfect, but i'm not sure. I think for the emily to fit me well I need to make sure my notes sit more our less on the seam, or else the fullest part of my breast will be getting flattened by the top section. This is a problem I've been having ever since losing track of my size, and I can't tell what my cup size is going to be.
