    Portia Ribbon 28K Fuschia-

    Adding bra in for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database. ☺

    Portia Ribbon is an underwired soft cup (not padded) bra available in a variety of colors. It is similar to Princess in that there is an interwoven ribbon on the top of the cups, but the pattern of the cups on Portia is crossed thatched lines instead of velvet dots.

    I have found Curvy Kate quality to be lacking often, and this one tops the cake for horrible quality for sure.

    With a band that measured 31.5” flat and stretched to ... 45” there is no doubt that is bra is not a true 28K. Seriously. I tried to shorten it, but that failed horribly as there was just too much extra band, and caused too much bunching. I ruined the bra when I attempted to remove this stitching, so the holes in the band on the photos is a result of my attempting to remove my shortening stitch and not how I received the bra, not that it matters since the bra was useless to me either way.

    Cup depth was 12” as measured by hovering the cup between the knees and placing the tape measure into the cup without any resistance, to a max of 14.5” stretched over the knee.

    The bra tag said 28K, the label said 28K UK, and the strap label that Curvy Kate does said 28K. As this was a clearance bra from Breakout Bras, I couldn’t return it, but was very disappointed that they sent it when it was clearly not the size. (I ordered 4 bras, so it was obvious that this one didn’t match, so who ever filled my order should be fired for inability to paying attention to detail….and they have permanently lost my business because of this.) While this isn’t the only quality issue I have experienced with Curvy Kate bras, it is the most significant one.

    If I was to take a guess as to the actual size for this bra, I’d assume somewhere around a 38G, and obviously not a 28K.
