This is one of my first non-molded bras, and I'm getting used to the feeling of it. I don't like that I can see my nipples through it, and that the seams are visible under my shirts, but that's par for the course for this type of bra. The cup on my smaller boob is perfect, but there's a bit of a cutting into the larger breast. I may need to size up to a G in this bra. It's comfortable, but the straps are a bit too wide apart for my more narrow shoulders.
When I first got this bra I loved it. It was one of my two first 28G bras and it fit well; I was so happy with it. But after only a couple of weeks it stopped fitting so well. I think I had another breast growth. I think it was minimal, less than a cup size, but now this feels too small in the cups. Which is weird--my 30FFs, which were at first nice and roomy, now fit exactly right, but my 28Gs (excluding the Freya) are a little too tight in the cups. I've now got a slight quadboob in this, and that combined with the ...fact that the gore is a little higher and wider than I prefer makes this bra not worth keeping. It's a shame, because I only ever wore it twice.
It's a very sturdy bra, which I like. It's got a silky smooth fabric that feels great against my skin and doesn't show through shirts. The geometric print is tasteful without being overbearing (because it's only on the lace and not the fabric). One thing I think is great is that the band is super firm, it really only stretches to 28 inches max. Really excellent bra, my boobs are just being weird, and now that I have some Comexims that fit better I'd kind of like to clear out some space in my bra drawer--but since it technically fits I don't know if I'd better keep ahold of it.

This is my second GIA. This is a gorgeous, quality bra. The color is nicely darker and purpler than on the picture. The shape and size is a typical CK bra, so that you may want to go up at least one cup size, the band is true to size though. I'm between 32/34 size, and I could fasten it on the tightest hook from the first wear. As a result, it doesn't work for me. I should have bought 32jj or k for the better fit.
Tried both a 32FF and a 34FF because they were the sizes on sale, and I wasn't really sure about fit with Curvy Kate yet anyway so I thought it'd help give me a ballpark. The 34FF definitely fit better, but wrinkled a lot along the middle of the cup and had a slight quad-boob going on the top for me. I'm guessing it's simply too deep for me, because the cup width should be good.
It was the first bra I've tried on in a long while that I could visibly see the straps tended to pull closer together in back and didn't seem too inclined to slip off my shoulders, which was really nice. Without wearing it in, though, I can't tell for sure if it would have stayed on my shoulders or not. And I could tell if it did start to slip off, it would make the fit even worse, so I'm not going to try it at this time.
This is so pretty for a black bra! This one is slightly less breathable than the other CK's I got in this batch, mainly because the bottom of the cup isn't mesh but is instead a very sturdy black fabric. This one's a bit weird in that I get a little collapsing just on the bottom. It doesn't feel like it's not filled, just like the fabric is collapsing on itself a little. Other than that, it seems to fit fine. Except the fact that the mesh-y-er fabric just before the strap bubbles out just a little? It bubbles out right at the seem but comes back down by the outer edge of the fabric and sits flush with my boob. So I'm not really sure that's a fit issue... ?
The straps were to wide. So the straps kept sliding off the shoulders. The band was to tight until I got done with the measurements for the database. Then the band fit. Pretty but without support. To wide for a narrow set of breasts.
Here I attempted to sister size the Curvy Kate-Gia Balcony Bra. The band is so small that even with an extender it is to tight for comfort. There is no support. The straps cut into my armpit. And with my full on top breasts there is unused fabric in the bottom/side of the cup.
