    Used to fit

    I bought this bra on eBay, and could not tell from the pictures exactly how beautiful it is. I thought it would be kind of plain, but the polka dots and the embroidery on the straps (so, they aren't fully adjustable for those who need it) add some unique qualities for the bra. This is not my grandma's white bra, and I feel amazing wearing it! I was concerned with the seams and the shape until I put a shirt on over - it gives a wonderful, uplifted shape under clothing. This is my first 30J bra (I actually got all four 30J Curvy Kates I ordered today ... - it's like christmas!!), and I think I have found my band size. In the past when I've tried 30 bands, they seemed to cut off my breathing a bit. Looking back, it is probably because the cup was never quite large enough. The center was a bit tight against my sternum, thanks to me being full in the middle, but I pushed the wires down the canal (there was a bit of room near the armpit) and now it is much more comfortable. I have only worn this a couple hours, not all day, but it is looking like the Princess will be one of my every-day favorites!

    I always come back to the Princess even though the fit is a little difficult to achieve. I find that if it fits in the bottom of the cup, then I have a lot of gaping at the top, if it fits at the top of the cup, then it's time for a larger size. The wires are wide on this CK model but I don't find much difference between the HH and the J - I'd rather have them too wide than sitting on breast tissue. Also, I love the colorway of bright pink with the burgundy ribbon.

      How are the straps for you? It seems like most of my gaping is caused by the straps being set too wide.

    • I actually do okay with the straps and I think it may be due to my outer fullness vs having no inner fullness. I get most of my gaping towards the center. I do okay with CK straps, which is one of the reasons why I keep buying them over and over. Lately, I can't keep Panache up at all. They're too wide plus they don't adjust short enough for me and I constantly have to tug them back up.

    Everything I hate about bras wrapped up in one item. Scratchy fabric, wires that won't stay in my IMF, gaping at the top, and a gore that presses on my breast tissue.

    I was quite happy with this bra when I got it- I actually wore it as wedding lingerie, even though it's perhaps an unconventional choice. I've had it for quite some time now and it's reached the end of it's lifespan, plus I've outgrown it.

    The straps are only half-adjustable, but I overcame that difficulty by sewing the adjusters in place so they didn't slide down. Princess bras do have the small hitch that the dots on them are textured, so they'll show up under a thin shirt. I'd say that it's probably one of my favourite unpadded styles which I've tried in recent years.

    This is a really pretty bra! Not a perfect fit for me (I'm usually a 32H in Freya/Panache), but I couldn't resist picking this one up in a 30J at a brastop sale, as it was the closest size available.

    Pros:
    - It fits pretty well, the cups are deep enough and the centre gore lies flat
    - The band is snug and stays in place.
    - The wires don't dig into my sides

    Cons:
    - It's not a perfectly rounded shape from the side for me, the cups come to a slight point (however, this is not very noticeable)
    - The biggest problem I have with this bra is that ... the area where the straps meet the top of the cups digs into my arms/armpits. The straps are fairly wide on my shoulders, which could be the problem, but also keeping in mind that this is a 30J and I normally wear a 32H -> the cups might be a size too big, causing the discomfort.

    Just a note about the look, this bra has a more relaxed, natural shape. I prefer the "pushed up and in" appearance of moulded bras so this is different but still looks nice - just don't expect the huge, uplifted, va-va-voom look!
