This seems to be one of the bras Cuvy Kate decided to make deeper and narrower (yay for me). Wires are really narrow for a curvy Kate (similar to comexim) but this is the only 36FF I've tried, all others are 32/34 G+ Band is a little loose because I sister sized up to get it cheap but it's comfortable and I can take it in later. Gore could be a bit shorter but it's not uncomfortable, I'm just too close set. Slightly pointed cups, doesn't bother me and will certainly soften with washing but if you like snow globe boobs (nothing wrong with that!) keep that in mind. ... Peachy gold color is beautiful next to the ivory. Not a huge fan of the swirly design but it could be worse
Wide-ish straps and great 3 hook closure.
EDIT: observations after wearing this a few times (bought a second since it was dirt cheap): Band is definitely too big. I wear it on the tightest hook and it's stretchy. I don't think it's riding up but I'm very aware of how it feels throughout the day. I don't feel locked and loaded like in my other bras. But I'm a 32/34 so I expected it to be big and plan to take it in. I'd say it's probably a stretchy true-to-size band. If you like them tight maybe consider sizing down. Wings itch/irritate me by the wire tips. I think the cup is a smidge wide but that it's mostly caused by the fabric and my ridiculously delicate skin, exacerbated by this frigid winter. (It's warmer in Alaska than Michigan right now!) Straps are way too stretchy for this size range. I know only like 10-20% of the support should come from the straps, but that's still some pretty heavy lifting and they just aren't up to it. Luckily the strapping I bought for my double has minimal stretch. I think I could benefit from taking in the gore, both because I'm close set and to change the shape of the bra a little, bringing the cups more front and center. The top of the gore already has wires touching so it would just be 1/2"-1" or so at the bottom of the gore. This will also help the band issue. Read more 269 more words
This bra and my boobs don't have much in common. Maybe it's too wide for me, or maybe the cups are too large or shaped differently than my boobs. It doesn't feel too big, but the wrinkling on the cups says otherwise.
As soon as I saw Lola in person, I knew she wasn't going to work for me. The wires are nice and narrow, but the apex of the cup is very high up, where the black cup meets the trim. This might work for someone full on top, but it didn't work for my projected full on bottom breasts. The band is VERY firm. This bra would easily work for someone who is a 26. The straps are a bit wide on my frame and the gore is a bit wide for my close together breasts. Lola, because of the high apex, creates a very retro shape that I don't care for. The cups are pointy even unfilled. The design is cute though and if you are more compatible with the shape this could be a great bra for you.
I really wanted to love this bra -actually I always feel that way with Curvy Kate and it never works out for us. The band is a bit loose but not so much that I couldn't wear it. The cups are too large for me though, with a lot of empty space at the top and with the padding the combo looks more unnatural than it should under clothes. The seams don't show badly under clothes which is great and the design is pretty. The shape is relatively natural, lifted of course, not pointy but not the overly rounded shape that some padded bras give. The material is very soft as well
the band on this bra fit comfortably but the cups were way too large - much larger than any other 30D bra I've tried/own. Maybe this brand just runs large. I bought the bra online and ended up returning it.
In love! This bra does give me a really projected and slightly weird shape, the outer fabric bunches up slightly at the top, and I fold the fabric inside over a little (something I seem to do in all padded styles) but overall, it's an extremely comfortable bra that I don't half fall out of. I think the cup may be a little too stiff in certain places which is why I get a slightly weird shape in it (not enough give around bottom or sides probably which makes me bulge more on top than usual) but overall, I love wearing it. It's definitely more comfortable than the 30K and the cups fit much better.
I normally wear a 32J but have this in a 32JJ. The band is a fine size - after a few wears I have to tighten to the middle hooks. The cups . . . I think they fit, but the shape is just very strange.
I feel like I have great projection in this bra. When I feel underneath my bra, there is this great feel of lots of tissue held up - which I love. The gore is lower than most of mine, so I actually get a bit of cleavage in this bra and ...could theoretically wear it under low-cut shirts
Right now it is winter, and I'm liking the warmth of the padding and liking the fact that I can wear this under 2 layers of thick warmth . . . because that way you cant quite see how weird the shape is. But come summer I suspect this bra will languish in my drawers.
The shape is squared-off from one angle and pointy from another. The texture of the top-half is unpleasant (tho I think it looks nice). I cant help but think that, if I were wearing this bra under a t-shirt, random people would ask me what is wrong with my boobs - because it looks like . .. idk, not human. Angular and bizarre shape.
