I would tell them, first off, to BUY IT IN THE RIGHT BAND.
Just because it is there in the store, and just because it is pretty, doesn't give you any excuse to buy a band that is too loose on the widest set of hooks. Just because it fits at the middle or tightest settings is NOT a reason for purchasing it.
That is obviously all my fault, it is just incredibly difficult to find a 28 band where I am. Luckily, I have found a boutique that has 28s a plenty and will not be making purchases like this again where I am compromising with my breasts and ... the available selection.
On to the review:
-This is a BEAUTIFUL bra. I mean, gorgeous. Lovely. In pretty much every way you hope your bra will be lovely.
-The band actually runs quite snug for a 30 (which is a pro for me and anyone else in a 28 that has trouble finding them)
-Is close enough to a "peach" to be worn discreetly under clothes
-The lace, with a proper fit, is invisible
-It seems pretty sturdy
-The band is quite snug (pro and con, because if this is your true size you may have some mild discomfort at first as it stretches out)
-The top sheer lace could be of a sturdier construction, it's just so malleable from a bra that looks like it would be a supportive construction.
-The wires are TOO SHORT to effectively hold all of my breast tissue in the cups. They escape into the recesses of my armpits which simply will not do. I have to readjust the bra on occasion which isn't what I want to do. If this is an issue with the bra in the correct size and the wires just run short, this could be a huge potential issue. I have read CK's wires tend to run short.
I would recommend this to a friend if they were significantly smaller busted than I am and for whom rogue breast tissue isn't a problem. In something like a 28d I doubt the short wires would be as much of a problem as it is in an f and higher.

Too big a cup size. I wanted it to fit so badly! I think I'll try again in a 30E.

This is a gorgeous bra! Really beautiful design and shape and I like the fact that the cups are taller than a lot of Curvy Kate's. The embroidered fabric is not itchy or scratchy. Unfortunately, it's too big for me. It would've fit me when I ordered it, but by the time it got to me 6 weeks later, it was already big. I wore it twice during a temporary upward weight fluctuation before retiriring it.

I smiled when I put this bra on. This is the first bra I've ever put on that fits my size and shape. It's beautiful. Although it is a little itchy, but I don't care about that right now, and it will probably get softer after a wash, maybe? These are just my first impressions; I will update after wearing it a few times.

Band is true to size. Cup size is slightly larger than true. No padding or elastic, so it wrinkle since the cup is a 2 cup sizes too big for me.

Too small cup, Too large band.
I don't know my correct size.
I must go up two cup, and must down one band.

I bought this bra back when I wore a 30F and even then it didn't work. I think it's meant for a less FOT shape than I have. I kept it around, though, because it's such a gorgeous bra. I can't get over the beautiful flower details on the cups and straps, and I think it's just so pretty and--well--princess-y. I'd love to see it go to a good home with someone who actually wears it.

Here it goes -- my first review! I had to write, as this bra was a deceptive fit for me. I thought it was a winner, but not ready to be duped, I wore it for a few hours. After only 2 hours or so I was starting to feel discomfort from the center gore. It was poking just slightly into my breast tissue on either side. I'll be returning it and continuing the hunt for the perfect bra! There was also a slight itchiness, but that may go away with washing, who knows.

This bra is a little to small in the cup. Please see my review fir size 30FF. Even though the measurements are pretty similar to bras that fits me, I spill over in this. So it must have something to do with cup shape, or perhaps the more rigid cup edge, compared to the softer lace in Portia or Ella.
