    The ribbons are definitely too long, but it's easy to fix with two stitches. I need a slightly narrower gore, but the bra still fits. The tops of the cups have actual elastic sewn along them to keep them from gaping and it stretches nicely to avoid overspill.

    Fuschia colorway

    I always had issues with CK's fit; cups too wide and too shallow, shoulder straps too far apart, almost no immediate projection... One of my first (post-bravangelization) bras was an unlined 30FF Curvy Kate, which I did like, oblivious to some of the previously mentioned fit issues. Once I grew out of it and started wearing 30G-GG's, CK's were my yearning-for-but-won't-ever-fit brand. Now that I've lost weight, and since I heard they tweaked the fit of their bras to make them narrower (yay!), I decided to give them a shot again with my beloved Portia in white.

    Unfortunately, the fit is as off as always. I've heard different things ... about the changes, that the unlined bras are not very different from the old ones, and since this is a continuity colourway, I don't know if it's a pre- or post-fit overhaul bra. The wires are still flimsy and too wide, there's quite a bit of loose fabric both at the sides and top *and* bottom of the cup, the shape is very upside-down seven, and the elastic and decorative pink ribbon at the top of the cups are on the verge of cutting in (while the mesh fabric is wrinkling!) The straps also come out in my armpits and will probably chafe the skin.

    However, it's so pretty (the embroideries! The ribbons and bows! The cute and yet elegant style! And I normally hate white). I've owned several Portias in various sizes, with plans of altering, but I've never come around to it. I quickly bent the wires of this one narrower to follow the shape of my ribcage, and it certainly sits/feels better now. I may also move the straps in just a little, if I keep it. (So pretty!)

    Love this bra. However if your measurements are similar to mine on my profile, size down in the band and up in the cup to a 28G. I went for 30FF as it was $25 cheaper on amazon when i bought it, haha. Other than the band, fits like a dream!

    I really like the look of this bra, but I don't really have the upper fullness to make it work. The wires are wide enough for me, and the cup has good immediate projection to accommodate my lower fullness, but the top lace section wrinkles badly and so gives me an odd shape.

    I found the band in this bra quite stretchy; my 32E stretched out so quickly I'm already on the last hooks to feel comfortably supported.

    30FF fits well! 32FF was much too big. I own in Seafoam/Pink.
