Unlike my last soft bra form CK (32D - Curvy Kate » Lottie (CK1601) ) this one fits pefectly (somehow a 32D was bigger than a 32F. Go figure.) It's nice on the skin, tight just enough to enclose tissue comfortably.

I really adore this bra, but not sure it's completely right for me. It was almost a match, but had some wrinkling in the right cup. Calculators keep putting me at 32F I almost felt like I needed to size down on this one.

This is such a cute bra. I like that it's light and wispy, good for a summer day. Although it's made of plastic mesh type fabric, it's finer, softer, and more comfortable than most. The Sapphire/Amber is a nice colorway, a good deep periwinkle blue with cheerful carrot-orange ribbons. It gives a nice rounded bust appearance and, for such a thin bra, it hides headlights surprisingly effectively.
I was pretty happy with the CK Portia at my previous size, and once again, the fit is strong. Unlike most CK bras, this one has plenty of depth and there's enough immediate projection. The gore doesn't quite tack but the gap ... is minimal. Given that gore hardly ever really tacks for me, it's good enough.
The wispy lace on the cup edges is pretty forgiving for my top-fullness but the ribbon detailing can create a bit of an odd look. Although there's a smooth line along the top of the cup, there's a bit of a weird dented shape along the ribbon channel on my larger breast because the ribbon is less stretchy than the cup. This is generally only noticeable "that time of month" and is helped by loosening the strap on that side, although there's some loss of shape when I do that. I wish the ribbon itself was adjustable or stretchy.
EDIT: After wearing this a few times, I'm quadding over the course of the day. The band is also stretchier than I thought initially. Going down a band & up a cup size.

Very short, projected, slightly narrow, close set, center full, even breasts....
Thanks again to courtnelius for recommending Portia. Portia is exceptionally comfortable and fits very well compared to most of the bras I've tried. She is a "keeper." In fact, I fell asleep while wearing her and felt 100% comfortable. Impressive
Like courtnelius experienced, Portia has a more closed cup edge. This barely cuts into my soft upper tissue, but does not show under knits. This is another Curvy Kate I recommend for short, projected, narrow breasts. The closed cup is excellent for many of us. The cut of the cup ... is minimizing and holds breast tissue close to the chest.
This cup has great immediate projection and rounds projected breasts beautifully. Under shirts, this is one of my favorites because the shape is round and equally distributed-demure. Much to my surprise, this bra stays in my IMF. I will have a Dreamcatcher and Madagascar soon. Exciting to finally have bras that don't cause me to cringe just thinking about wearing them. In fact, this morning while preparing for a four hour hike in 95F+ temperatures, this was the bra I grabbed.
However, after wearing this for a few hours, it is obvious it has shallow center projection. If you have center-full breasts, Ellace and Florence will fit better. This lack of center projection causes the wire to sit on one breast during wear. This causes discomfort. Ellace and Florence designs have more space in the center.
