    (purchased used with alteration)

    Alteration detail: Starting at about 1/2" above top of wire channel on outsides of cups, the fold starts. At the base it is a point. At the top at the strap, about 1/2" is folded in under the strap. This, in essence, takes out about an inch at the top of the cup at the strap.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Quickie initial impression: Holy cow. I think it fits. With the alteration (dart on arm-sides of cups), I get a little quad boob. I think if I take the stitching out it will fit perfectly.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Update:
    I still haven't taken out the dart. The right cup gives me slight quadboob. I think the wires are too wide for me on this bra now.

    Time to move on to different shapes/brands.

    The band on this bra fits fine, probably a little stretchy/big for a 32. I usually wear a 34. The cups are a bit too wide for me, and possibly the wrong shape. I like the shape it gives my breasts, nice and round and lifted. Unfortunately, I don't fill the bottom of the cups so it's probably the wrong shape for me. Also, it is a bit small, the center gore does not lie flat.

    At first, this bra gave me a very weird torpedo-y kind of shape, and I did not feel like it had enough support and lift. I am even to slightly full on top, and there was too much fabric in the upper part of the cup. I altered the cups to bring the upper part of the cup (the pink part on my blue and pink bra) to meet the strap so that it would give me more lift and change the shape. It's much better now - more rounded and supportive, even though the wires are too wide for me.

    I bought this bra in "nude" to wear under a wide-neck, low-cut dress at a wedding, and it did pretty well for that.

    PROS:
    Well-made.
    The cut is perfect for wide-neck dresses -- I have quite broad shoulders and I really liked how wide-set the straps were.
    Very feminine. Doesn't feel like a 'big' bra.

    CONS:
    I ordered at least 2 cup sizes too small, a newbie mistake on my part -- but having never worn a bra that fit before, I didn't seriously believe it was possible that I needed a cup size as big as I did. A scoop and swoop brought me spilling out of the top, and I have ... bottom-heavy breasts!
    The band was a little looser than I expected -- I think if I were to reorder larger cups I would also downsize to a 30.
    Bottom-heavy as I am, the cut just wasn't good on me. I like something with a little more lift. I think that's a function of the typical Curvy Kate style, not a fault of this bra.

    I ordered a bland color because that's what I was looking for, but I'd definitely go more colorful if I did it again!

    Fit seems very similar to the @Romance. A very comfortable bra and will try the style in a smaller band/larger cup.

    I had high hopes for the Curvy Kate bras... they are SO attractive. However, the Emily did not fill these hopes for me. I'll keep looking, but this one isn't working for me.

    The band is fine and comfortable, and the cups seem to fit OK, even though they're a tad loose at the top. The issue is that the cups seem to spread my breasts wide, and I can't line my nipples up on the seams. It's as though the bra wants to sit too low on my body, with the wires not right under and encasing the breasts... the wires sit a tad lower than the breasts on my ribs.

    The fabric also feels very bouncy (I had to run downstairs to get the camera). Moreso than other bras that I have.

    It may be that for me, like Panache, this brand doesn't quite work, even though their bras are really lovely and many women love them... but I haven't given up yet!
