    I went up a side in this but I'm still getting quadding. Maybe this is just too shallow for me.

    Sapphire/Amber colorway

    • It seems better suited for short roots and less center fullness. Great for some, but not ideal for you. Sigh.

      Yep! Thanks for taking the time to diagnose it, haha. I like that the wires are short, because they don't stab my armpits, but the center fullness is a problem.

    • The short wires are so wonderful :-)

    I swapped this bra with another bratabase user, but unfortunately it turns out to be one size too small in the cups. It's a shame because it's a very pretty bra!

    I'm affraid sizing up won't fix things, because the tops of the cup may still be too closed for me, so ut's probably a shape mis match.

    I find it hard to determine my size in CK, but I think I need at least 1 cup size larger in this brand compared to other brands.

    I looked at my other CK bras, and it turns out they are 36Gs. Those are seriously too large in the band (I altered the bands so nie they're more like 32s). The cups are also too big, but not by as much as I would expect, given that I wear a 32FF in mist other brands. Oh well.

    I'll list this one again.

    Not suitable for my shape; not enough room in the center.

    At a discounted price on Brastop, I thought to myself "why not?" and I got Portia in the SS13 Seafoam colourway, which is a beautiful greenish blue with dark fuchsia ribbon across the top of the cups. I already had the white/pink version, in the old Curvy Kate cut (wide + shallow) and I wanted to try the new one, which is deeper and narrower. Sadly, it's still not deep or narrow enough (I'd need another 0.5 cm depth and the same cut off on the sides), and I spill out the top and the pink ribbon cuts into my breasts. The band is stretchy and doesn't stay in place. In spite of the fit issues, I still kept it and I wear it around the house, as it's rather comfortable, and it's gotten lots of wear. I find CK's stretch out quite quickly, and their meshes, while nice and soft, don't last very long.

    Too wide and shallow for me. I fall out in the centre, and the gore floats. The band is too stretchy and rides up. Not enough depth at the bottom. Not enough depth anywhere, really. Still, a very pretty bra, the white/pink is definitely my favourite colourway of Portia. Simple, but cute. I'm going to try my luck at altering a 32G and see how it fits. Fingers crossed!

    This is one of the few bras that I've found with wide enough wires to encompass all of my breast tissue without having either quadboob or not being able to fill up the top of the cup. The band is a little loose, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to go down a size without extreme discomfort. I find the straps to be a little bit too wide for my frame though, and I wonder if this is because of the wider wires. I have yet to wash this bra so I am hoping that the straps soften a little after a wash or two.
