    This is probably the best fitting bra I own now.
    My problem with it is the shape. It gives me a bit of a downward 7 shape, unless I adjust just perfectly in which case I can get more of an upward 7 shape. My nipples show through the mesh, so it's not even the shape being manipulated into the upside down 7 for me(the actual shape appears more even to FoB), it's the seam of the bra. 0_0

    If I push my tissue down and adjust more, instead of letting it fall into the cups, I can adjust the seams to be more of a perky shape.
    That's kind of ... annoying, and annoys me more than the fit of this bra (which is near perfect) makes me happy. Lol

    As for fit, I'm not sure if this would work for wide roots, but I'm guessing it's aimed more towards average. The wires are still a little wide for me, but I have an unusual shape and would otherwise need really narrow wires. Overall, the wires are the best I've tried aside from a Gossard Phoebe 30E I just received, but the cup depth doesn't work for me in that, of course. :(

    Cup depth in this bra is just about perfect. I feel like I could use maybe like a centimeter or two more xD so no big deal.
    The band is tight enough, but not too tight. It feels stretchy.
    I feel like this one is maybe best for even shapes.

    The gore has little separation, which works well for me.

    Appearance wise, I have mixed feelings. The bra is both very dainty (silk-like material, bows) and unappealing to me. Not ugly, just not all the colors, frills and lace that I normally go for. I think my taste in bras is super extravagant though.

    This seems like it'd at least be much more practical than what I normally go for, which is what I was aiming for.
    Fabric is also extremely silky feeling and comfortable.

    My biggest complaint is that shape. This is my first CK, so I can't speak for them all, but I think this would work well for more perky people, even, or FoB. I'm slightly even/slightly FoT with my left side, and it doesn't look like I'm being supported, but again, I actually am, it's just that my shape puts the seam in a weird area unless I spend forever adjusting. I'm slightly tuberous, so I just lack that bottom fullness and it makes me sad because if the seam were different, this would be my new go-to.

    I haven't worn it a full day yet, so I don't know if my adjusting will stay put or if it'll somehow go back to the unpleasant shape. I imagine it wouldn't, because if tissue were to move it shouldn't move upward unless I bent over and the cups and/or band were too big.
    I'll edit once I've worn it longer.

    Edit: Wore it longer. This bra makes me remember how much I hate my boobs. I guess it didn't fulfill it's purpose :p Just no way a good fit for even mildly tuberous people unless you're comfortable with showing your true shape. Most of what I own is to shape my boobs and make me look like I actually developed. This shows my actual shape and doesn't even make them appear lifted because of where the seam lies (which is probably partly due to being under developed). Blah. Why. :[ This bra literally depresses me.


    Edit2: Looking back, this bra was way too wide for me, which likely resulted in some of that dreadful shape.
    At the time, 5.6" was the narrowest I'd had trying out my new size. Now I know I need 4.8-5.3".

    This review is for the black and pink colour. This bra is amazingly comfortable for me and gives an excellent shape. Absolutely no digging in at all. I have also tried it in the raspberry colour, and that one was too big, so I think I must have been very fortunate that the black one fits me so well.

    • I think the fit difference may be a bit of an issue for Curvy Kate. I ordered two of the exact same bra, same time, received them, and they fit totally differently from each other.

    This bra looks very pretty on the Curvy Kate model and even on the lingerie bloggers, but I guess it's completely wrong for me. I can hook on the innermost hooks which means I probably need a 28 band size instead. The mesh portion is kind of open on top which produces some wrinkling unless I perform more scooping and adjusting than usual. The fabric section of the cups is much thicker than the mesh, producing a triangular shape on my full on the bottom breasts. The details, while pretty, will not go with many of my clothes as they show through the clothing. I have since returned this bra.

    The only real problem with this bra is that it gives a very pointy shape and there is empty fabric it the tips of the cups.

    I´m really not sure if the wires are wide enough, but I think they are adequate. I´m going to alter the cups because I like this bra´s appearance so much. The cut is not good for me, so another size would not be good, I think. And there are not really other sizes left, I think they´re not producing this model anymore.

    One thing that I really wonder. The straps don´t stretch much at all! It was a real surprise.

    EDIT1. I have to say that the band runs snug! I normally need 28, and this 30 is tight enough for me even after some use. The band is not very stretchy, same thing with the straps.
