  1. Madagascar is supposedly based on the Bardot, but more open on top and less depth at the underwire IMO. Best for short roots needing decent projection. Band is true to size. Material isn't super soft but isn't scratchy either. Thankfully the animal print is understated as it's not really "my thing" but I snagged it on Zulily for cheap and it's a really good cup shape for me. Full review on the blog!

      I love the colors on this bra, wish I had ordered one when Zulily had them. I like that the zebra print is kind of abstract looking and looks more like tye dye than animal print.

      Beautiful!!

    • amandafire thats what I thought about the print too! I never would have tried this bra if it weren't for being so cheap on zulily that one day.

    My favorite of my recent Curvy Kate buys!

    I tried to capture the bright color of this beauty, but it was really hard to get the color to convey on my phone camera as it is in person. In person, the color is brighter and a richer green. The poppy detailing is close to a burnt orange. It's truly stunning, and unlike another I have owned before.

    The band is the most stretchy of the 3 different models that I bought, and is the only one I can wear comfortably without an extender. The cups run TTS, and, while the materials doesn't much much stretch, it is accommodating ... to FoT breasts. It fits my larger breast perfectly, and is slightly loose along the top above the seam on my smaller. The wires are certainly too wide, but there isn't much wrinkling along the wires and it isn't at all noticeable under clothing. With this, I get a very round shape that is slightly minimizing and held close to my body. This will be great to wear for clothes I would otherwise fear my boobs busting out of the top.

    Bonus: on top of the great shape, the bra is crazy comfortable. I definitely recommend!

    I originally wanted to try the Curvy Kate Bardot but settled for a sister cut Madagascar because it was cheaper. I have tall roots but not a lot tissue up top, so most lined bras wrinkle at the top so I thought trying a bra intend for short roots might help. The tops of the cups still wrinkle due to me not have enough tissue in the right spots but also my tall roots are pushing against the top making it worse. Its also wrinkling slightly at the bottom due to not enough immediate projection. I wanted this bra to fit because it a beautiful color and the cups have a pretty embroidery on the top. But the shape was unflattering because it cuts into my tall roots. I would recommend this for someone with short roots and average projection.

    This bra is good for women with high set breasts. It seems to be shorter on the sides than other bras, so it is one of the few that doesn't poke my armpits. I love the colors (I have both the red/poppy color and a teal one). It's very comfortable, and seems to have the immediate projection I need to keep the bra in place. I've owned both of my Madagascar bras for a few months, and they seem to be holding up well.

    This bra is gorgeous. It's super-soft and doesn't both my sensitive skin at all. I would warn that the wire sits weird in this one's gore.

    Backwards & Upsidedown: Seems a bit snug, but otherwise fine.Moves 2/3 fingers from chest.

    Wires: Wires extend past breast tissue on side. They may be slightly too short, but short-term wear isn't painful (haven't tried long-term wear).

    Gore: Top .25 inches of gore is floating very slightly where the wires are. May be sitting slightly on breast tissue, but seems to be floating above it instead. Height is fine.

    Cups: Slight quad-boob on one side, other cup is fine, with slight gapping. Wires like to sit ... about the width of a fingertip below my inframmary fold. When I adjust them to the IF, the band below the gore digs in painfully after a few minutes.

    Straps: Strap location is fine and they are 100% adjustable. Band appears to be parallel.

    Comfort: After short-term wear (10-15 minutes?) bra feels ok. Band feels tight, wires are poking slightly (probably a tad too short). I like the shape it gives me. I do have slight back pain, but I had that before I put this on. I suspect it is because I am unused to a tight band.

    Previously when I have tried Curvy Kate bras I found them not to be a good fit as they were too wide and shallow. The Madagascar is a much better fit and gives a nice shape under clothing. The gore is slightly lower than the Panache bras I fit into best (Jasmine and Envy) so is useful for tops that are cut a bit lower. I do have some Cleo bras that I like for the rounded shape and lower gores but they are a little small in the cup as they only go up to a J and I prefer 3 hooks instead of 2.
    I am projected with average to narrow width short roots and find that the Madagascar is a good match for my shape.

    I'm surprised this bra fits me. When I got the other 30E I was sure this would cause some cutting in because of the way the top part of the cup is sewn, but it's fine for my tall roots/fot shape.
    This is more TTS than the other 30E that I got from brastop.
    For some reason, the straps are too short for me. I have them at their longest, and I can see that they're digging in; ideally I'd like to be able to lengthen them a bit, but I won't. When trying the bra on, the straps feel okay, but I don't know how it'll feel after 8+ hours. The straps do feel rather wideset. Normally this isn't an issue for me. I do think brastop was sent a bad batch from CK, as they told me out of all the Madagascars they had left this one was the only one that measured correctly (the rest measured at 30F or slightly bigger)

    Very short, projected, center full, close set, even, slightly narrow breasts....

    The pattern and embroidery are quirky as are the colors. I dislike banal and this bra is anything but banal. The lower cup is a strong, fine white mesh with printed poppy zebra stripes. The cup edge is scalloped and the fabric has poppy embroidery that reminds me of zebra grazing patterns....or spider webs. Delightfully quirky. The straps are a luminous poppy color, supportive, and .75" wide. The band has 3x3 fasteners and supports the weight of my breasts well. Pale yellow bows adorn the gore and straps.

    This bra just didn't feel comfortable; surprising when considering the favorable ... reviews to the contrary. I couldn't determine what was causing my discomfort until the doorbell rang--CK Dreamcatcher arrived. 30FF Dreamcatcher was very enlightening because it has both excellent immediate and center projection. The immediate projection in Madagascar is good, but the center projection is less than what I require for complete comfort. It also helped me see Portia has less center projection than Madagascar which may explain why I created a narrow riser for the Portia gore. Madagascar may not be the best choice for center full breasts, but it is an excellent choice for narrow, projected, short breasts.

    I may feel more comfortable in a 30G Madagascar, but only the 30FF was available at the time I ordered. And, considering the dimensions, there is a strong possibility more depth and width may create more fit issues. To date, I prefer Ellace and Florence in 30G.
