I wonder if I have a fluke. The cups are TINY! I'm sure I'll be getting a message to confirm my measurements, because the wire length, volume, and wire width are all at least a cup smaller than what's already posted here on Bratabase! My measurements are 4.5" width and 7.0" depth, and the other 30DDs average out to 5.0" width and 7.7" depth. I was actually afraid they'd be too deep based on those measurements, but holy quadboob batman!! Talk about milk-maid boobs! While I don't get cleavage (the SUPER high, painful, pointy gore prevents that) my breasts are VERY round and full looking. I swear, Curvy ... Kate accidentally put 30D cups into this bra. It has closer measurements to the 28DD than the 28E/30DD measurements already plugged into this website. But the band is exactly the same length as my 30DD Tempt Me bra. So I'm confused. I've read complaints about varied measurements even among the same bras as well as styles with Curvy Kate, so I guess they need better quality control?
Maybe it will fit better once my PMS swelling goes down, but the wires are definitely too narrow and WAY too stiff to do much adjusting to. The cups are slightly separated, and the wires come up really high in the middle, so the gore pinches a bit of tissue into my sternum, which hurts like a bi-... well, you know. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" /> Again, since the wires are really thick and stiff, I can't bend the wires away from my chest. The bra feels super tight, even though the band is definitely too large for me. I'll wait a few months before attempting any alterations, and if the cups are still too small, I guess I'll have to sell this beauty that I waited over two weeks for. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
Besides the horrid, painful fit, this bra is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BRA I HAVE EVER SEEN. IT IS SOOO PRETTY. The satin is soft, the lace on the cups is multi-layered, and the trims and findings are so elegance and Victorian, which makes me extremely happy. From the bows, to the embroidery, to the fabric selections, the company really outdid themselves with the styling of this bra. The only thing plain about it is the back half of the band. I think they could have continued the satin all the way around the bra, which would make it less stretchy, and definitely continued the lace trim all the way around the edge. But who cares about the back?? I (and my fiance) can't stop staring at the front!! The straps are also super adjustable, which is a plus, and aren't too far apart, which was a problem for me with my Tempt Me bra.
In conclusion, very beautiful, but definitely not the right shape or size (could be a fluke, maybe another 30DD in this bra would fit?) and I'll probably have to sell or exchange.
