Well, this one is better for me than the Princess or the Emily, but it still doesn't work.
It is a bit more supportive because the lower section of the cup is a nice firm satin material, and this is a larger amount of the cup than the lace part. Also the seam runs diagonally from low in the middle to high on the sides (just inside the strap attachment point) so it doesn't have the "square" effect that the Princess and especially the Emily did.
The cups seem a little wider than on the others too. The band is made of fairly stretchy mesh and is not ... very supportive.
It is quite comfortable for a fancy bra that doesn't really fit me, though! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" /> Other than the fact that the straps are too narrow and dig in, that is.
Overall, Curvy Kate bras will be best for those with fairly perky boobs who don't need a lot of lift. And they don't really work well in the upper end of the size range. Again, it's possible that if I could get this in like a 32L or so it would fit better, but that's less clear than with the Princess.
I like the pink stitching on the black part, it would be nice if there was some pink in the lace cup edging too.

Curvy Kate Lottie Pink/Flowers 34K
I like the print - it's totally my style https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> Actually this one was the best out of the bunch! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_surprised.gif" alt=":O" /> Shocking isn’t it? But then “best”--- among bad bras.
Usual CK issues striked like unstable construction, weak wires and the band--- worst quality band there are on the bra market, really!
I did take the bra out of the parcel and then I saw it… the band looked like that: http://www.flickr.com/photos/96373516@N07/sets/72157634562101922/ !!!
And this was before I even tried it on! I thought this happens only if one wears the bra for a while. I complained, returned it and got full refund!
The biggerst problem (besides the bad quality band) is that the wires are not supportive enough to fully support a 32K / 34K bust :/
Why, why are those CK bras sooooo cute?!

I was optimistic about this one, but it doesn't seem to fit quite right, which is disappointing because I love the look of Lotties, and the colour is very nice. It's quite comfortable. It feels like a true 34 band, which is nice. I'll be wearing this for now, but I will probably list it soon enough.

I will write a review of this bra for my blog in due course but for now here is a brief summary.
I LOVE this bra - it is so simple and pretty. I was longing for it to work for me.
The top half of the cups are made from a sheer fabric with an embroidered edge which is very sexy. The candy pink bows and stitching are a girlie contrast to the elegant black and bring a bit of fun to the bra. The fabrics used are of high quality and feel wonderfully soft but durable.
The band is reasonably firm and the section between the ... cups is not stretchy.
The straps are fully adjustable and have circular rings attaching them to the bra's band. There are three rows of three hooks and eyes.
Sadly it was no good for me in 34K as it was still a smidge too small in the cups and cut into my upper breast tissue. Interestingly, however, the cups were too wide, meaning that yet again I had found a bra which was too shallow for me. Also the band was much too big for me and I wore the bra on the tightest hooks straight away.
Interestingly I had to have the straps on the 34K adjusted almost fully, but perhaps this was because I found the band too loose. Also there was no gap between the cups on the central gore, whereas with the 32K there was a definite gap. This will have affected the positioning of my breasts within each bra.
