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. Read more 146 more words
This is one of the first bras i tried after measuring myself again and seeking advise from facebook-group called Boob or Bust - bra measuring advice. I was told to try bras in sizes 36JJ and 36K. This CK Madagascar was spot on with my bottom heavy boobs. I feel very supported and for first time in my life i dont have side or back fat with bra. Bra is very pretty and comftable to wear. I only feel slight discomfort on it in the very end of the day when i have worn it for 12+ hours. Backwards bandtest was spot on, bra stretched out only maybe 1,5 inches. Fabric feels nice and soft. I really love the print of this bra. Its best fit i have ever had.
The Madagascar is made of a lovely soft mesh, similar to the Bardot. The shape is also most similar to the Bardot or to the Jewel. It has a bit more of a closed on top shape than earlier Curvy Kates, such as the Gia, the Princess, or the Portia. It has shorter cups than those three, too. I enjoy it a lot, but it might be a bit too projected for my shape. The band is nicely firm for a 30.
I wanted this bra to fit so bad. It's such a beautiful alluring bra. The colors compliment each other perfectly. Buuuut it's too small. Like maybe 2 cups too small. Boo hoo. I get quadraboob you can just see the cup being so small its pulled and points down. Additionally my boobie tries to escape on the side of the bra cup. The bra band is on the stretchy side, it feels more like a 32 than a 30 band. I had no idea I had to size up on curvy kate but now I know. I hope and pray I can find a size on this bra.
