    30E

    Didn't fit

    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. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":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".

    30FF

    Didn't fit

    I felt like I got torpedo boob in this bra, which is a personal preference thing. I also wasn't in love with the black and pink color combo. My friend described it at "bondage with bows."

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    Either much too FoT for me, or runs a bit large. There is no chance of me ever being able to fill out the top--I tried to capture that in the pictures.

    The lining has a nice, soft, almost luxurious texture. The underwires were kind of painful but I'm not sure why.

    I don't have much else to say--all I know is that this is now a giveaway again!

      Curvy Kate softcup bras run pretty projected and have narrow wires. They rarely work in the smaller size range :/

    • Noted! That's a shame. I thought it was worth I try since this bra was a giveaway when I got it. I have heard few good things about CK softcups., and I will remember that for next time :P Now it shall be a traveling giveaway!

      I remember seeing one (!) fit check of a 30DD person whom it actually fit. They were pretty projected, though.
      Let's hope it will find a good new home :)

    Didn't fit

    Overall, I like this bra. As with most @Curvy Kate bras, I needed to go up a cup size. This bra has a little bit of lace edging but can still be worn under most clothing. The pink detailing in the bows and stitching is a nice touch. I did, however, find this bra to be a little bit too wide for my shape. It isn't unwearable, but it is not one of my favourites for this reason.

    Didn't fit

    Amazingly, this bra fits like a much bigger cup. My best fitting bra is a Freya plunge in 32FF, and I still fit into this bra. Maybe it is mislabeled. The wires are far too short on the sides for my comfort, though.

    This is for the purple with orange ribbon. I haven't had any luck with CK soft cup bras. I've only tried it on.

    32D

    Didn't fit

    This bra is very pretty, but as my breasts are slightly lopsides one of the nips peeks out and the other doesn't. Also, the sizing is very confusing; I usually wear 32E at CK, but this one I got at 32DD and it was waaaaaay to big. I have a 32D now and it is still a *tad* too big.

    28GG

    Fits

    I own both the Lottie in black and raspberry both in a 28GG. I purchased them both at the same time. When I first received them the black fit more like a 28FF/G and was tight in the cups; however, this particular review is on the raspberry which is true to fit.
    I have owned these bras for about a year now and I have stretched them out quite a bit and worn them quite a few times. These are some of my favorite bras though and I highly recommend them

    Fits

    This bra is gorgeous, but the cups are waaaaaay too big. I'd say they are 1-2 cup sizes bigger than other bras that I own in this size. I think this model would work better for boobs that are full on top, because otherwise it's very difficult to fill the mesh area. The band and gore are perfect, though.

    The underwires on this bra are wide, and dig in a bit. The straps are too wide for me. The cups are also a tad large. The band is decently tight, though, and I like the round shape it gives. I can usually include it in my rotation without the wires bothering me too much, but it could fit a lot better.
