    Very short-waisted, center full, close set, somewhat narrow, immediately projected, shallow apex projection,...

    Of the four recent Curvy Kate purchases (32G Princess, 32F Atomic, 32FF Atomic, and 30GG Portia), Portia fits my breast characteristics most comfortably. Comparing measurements, the comfort is likely attributable to Portia's .25" wider wire and a slightly narrower lower gore.

    Still, CK's gore width remains too wide despite my "sizing up." And, I instinctively choose wireless bras over wired bras because wires HURT my unpadded ribs.

    Overall, the short wing height works well for my very short-waisted body. But, the materials in CK Ellace are so much softer and easier to wear. Additionally, I prefer the support of Ellace's band.

      That is lovely, and looks like not a bad fit if it wasn't for the gore. Sorry it doesn't work for you.

      I really liked the saturated aqua. It fit well enough I should have just kept it, but I thought I could purchase one from a Bratabase user. Someone purchased it before I could ;-)

      Such a gorgeous color! Sorry the gore didn't work for you. :-(

      I fix the gore problem by sewing it. It adds extra depth for my insane central fullness - not sure it would be a good solution for you, if the cup fits well otherwise...

    • BlackieBird It is so strange for me. When I have narrowed the gore, the cup becomes too narrow. My breasts are not, apparently, as narrow as many of our users' breasts.

    I like Curvy Kate Portia because it's adorable - light, frilly, frothy - and it's lightweight, which is great for summer. The mesh is fine and comfortable. The only problem is it doesn't suuuuper match my shape. I'm too center-full; on smaller sizes, I quad out, and on this size, which is much too wide in the cups, I kind of warp in toward the center. I also get some in-cup quadding along the seam. It's a bit too plungy and shallow, I guess. But it's not a terrible fit, and it's comfortable; it has quite short wings for the cup size, so it doesn't dig into my armpits the way some bras at the 30G/GG size range do (cough Cleos cough) do.

    • This looks so much more comfortable than the 32F! You needed more space :-) Glad you tried another size and can still enjoy the shorter wings :-)

      Yes, this one is way better! Still not the best shape but the size was definitely a big part of the issue.

    This is a copy in another colorway of a bra I already own: 30GG - Curvy Kate » Portia Balcony Bra (CK4001)

    I purchased this pre-owned. The ribbon in the middle is undone, but otherwise it's in good condition. It fits as well as my Lime/Rose one, so I can let go of the myth that Lime/Rose fits differently!

    The band on this bra is very stretchy and runs slightly large I think. So if you like your bands tight, probably size down. The cup seems true to size though.

    This bra is a great shape for my very projected full on bottom boobs :) Although it doesn't give a very rounded shape so if that's what you're looking for this probably isn't the bra for you.

    I think this bra is very pretty, all the colours are really nice and it has cute details. Though it's quite visible under some tighter clothing.

    I rarely enjoy unpadded, unmolded bras, and this was no exception. I've been branching out in search of more comfortable, cheaper, numerous, easier to access, whatever, but this isn't it.

    It's a very pretty bra, and the band & straps are dynamite. I love a wide band, 3 hooks, wide straps.

    I didn't find the cups very supportive, and the gore, while it did tack, also involved the underwires stabbing me in the sternum.

    Shorter wires in the front and slightly more supportive cups would make it perfect.

    Used to fit

    Needed to size up for fit with the ribbon and my full-on-top breasts. Sizing up caused the wires to become too wide right at the top and sacrificed support.
