    I put this back on after quite a while not wearing it regularly (due to becoming more FOT and projected - when I bought this I was FOB and shallow). I expected to be horrified, but the fit is actually decent. This is possibly because it was a little big for me when I first bought it and it now accommodates my slightly bigger boobs reasonably well.

    The shape I get in the Princess is actually quite nice - a rounded, lowish, teardrop sort of shape. Unlike my slightly-too-small Romances, I never saw any upside-down seven shape in this. It's also very soft ... and comfortable - I used to wear the Princess when my breasts were feeling more tender than usual, because I never seemed to feel sore during the day or when I took it off.

    Appearance-wise, I really like the colour combination of the rich, Cadbury-like purple used for the detailing and the soft lilac of the cups. It's feminine without being too twee. Even though in the past my fit in their bras has been less than stellar, I've always loved the colour combinations Curvy Kate chooses for their bras. (This is in contrast to Cleo, which seems to work much better for my shape nowadays in general - but quite often, their colours and patterns are less than appealing to me.)

    I'll be honest and say that I'm not wild about the look of this bra under fitted shirts. The raised polkadots are very visible, and the low, minimised, rounded shape works better (for me anyway) when trying to wear looser, flowy tops rather than anything very tight. I'd also love it if this bra provided a bit more lift and kept my boobs a little more front-and-centre - although the Princess isn't anywhere near as bad on this count as, say, my Panache Tango II or Evie strapless is.

    Overall, I feel like the Princess is a solid construction for Curvy Kate and I can see why it, and Portia, are the only two of their older unpadded styles to have stayed in their current collections.

    I wanted so much to love this bra. The color is a rich, dark teal, which sets off the blush ribbon nicely.

    The band is just right for a 32, and the 3-hook closure is my preference.

    The wires are wide enough, which is generally: 1) unheard of for me; 2) incredibly promising. Unfortunately, that is the highlight of my experience with the cup. I initially experienced some gaping in the top of the cup, so I thought it was too big. But no. I soon discovered the top of the cup sliding down because the cup is too shallow there. And no matter how I adjust the straps, I feel like I'm getting zero lift from the bottom of the cup.

    Overall, while nothing is painful, I'm not getting the support I need from the bra, nor am I getting any kind of shaping. I may look to try this (or a similar cut) in a 32J -- but it may also be a fundamental shape incompatibility.

    Lovely bra, and despite the deep cup, did give my very soft, very pendulous boobs a nice, rounded, front-and-center look. Unfortunately, the underwires were waaaay too wide for me (at least an inch), which meant that the wings were shoved way up into my armpits.
