I'm not sure who decided to make a Pink Princess Plunge two seasons in a row, but I'm glad they did. I like this pink better, I feel like Elle Woods would have worn something like this.
Curvy Kate really needs to work on their quality. The elastic in this bra is too narrow and stretchy to take the force necessary to hold up large breasts. It rolls and digs into my fleshy body, requiring adjustments.
Cup is projected, narrow, and short-root friendly. Fans of Florence who want or need a lower gore will like this shape. I think this gore height is as good as it's gonna get for my cleavage. I don't think a lower gore would be supportive (even if it were manufactured) and this doesn't dig into the touching part unless I'm leaning one way or another. Asymmetry is noticeable, but not as obvious as with the Flamingo colorway.
This was edited upon a second try-on and measuring session. This is a brand-new release from Curvy Kate.
Me: Very short, narrow, roots. High set, round, pendulous uber- projected, full in center, full on top to even.
I would describe this shape as a true demi plunge in this size. When I first put it on I thought Holy Shit are those MINE?!?! Because I look so hot, I have center and cakes cleavage. To the point where I'm pretty sure it's too small (or too short for my short roots?!?!?) even though it's in my usual Curvy Kate size.
Fit: Basically the ...same as my 38J - Curvy Kate » Cabaret Plunge Bra (CK5111), very similar measurements, but with shorter cups (like an inch shorter!). The wires are softer than the Cabaret. There is in-cup quadding and slight quadding on my large side. The band was about the same size as my 38J Cabaret so I used an extender, but it immediately stretched to 40 inches when I tried it on, which with the extender felt less secure. The second time I wore it I did not use the extender and adjusted the straps up a bit, which provided a much more secure fit, but this is when I experienced a tiny bit of quadding on my large side. The straps adjust fine for me but there is embellishment on the front like on the regular Princess. Because my tissue is brought to the center and the wires are softer I push the gore out so there's not the stabilizing gore tack of the Cabaret which has Panache-style firm wires. The cups begin at my breast tissue, so there's no gapping at the strap. The shape is super round, like if Cleo Marcie Balconnet Bra (6831) was a plunge for people with incredibly short roots.
Comfort: The fabric is soft, no scratchy mesh here. The straps are also soft but a bit stretchy. I have a big problem with Cabaret and 36JJ - Curvy Kate » Bardot Balcony Bra (SG3101) because of the itchy mesh and embroidery. I have no such issues with either the dotted fabric or the soft lace and ribbon top embellishment. This bra is a delight.
Style: The ribbon pulls out a bit on the top so there are loops when I look down. I'm not too bothered by it. I like the Princess so much better in black. I don't really care about the ribbons and bows and everything because I can't see it as much in black. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />
An amazing plunge for very short narrow-to-average roots. I will be ordering it in a cup size larger and seeing how that works for me.
This plunge bra is cute and sheer. It is a soft cup with two seams. The upper is lace and the lower is mesh. The band is mesh as well. There is a subtle polka dot pattern on the mesh. The wire is shallow and the straps are wide and fully adjustable. Unfortunately, this size doesn't fit me. The gore tacks nicely on my chest but the band is too tight and although the wire seems to fit fine, the cups are wrinkly at the top and sides.
Such a pretty bra! I love the details- I would say it's best for someone with moderate immediate projection, short roots, and fairly projected, pointy breasts, based on the way it fits- and doesn't fit me. It almost works, but I have trouble keeping it in my IMF, and the wire is stretchy/flexes to the point that it can get easily distorted, which may be part of my problem with the torpedo shape I get.
Fit: I tried this sized up from my usual size of 40HH when it was too low cut on me. See the review for that size at 40HH - Curvy Kate » Princess Plunge (CK6011). By sizing up the wires became a bit too wide for me, which spread my breasts out, a look I didn’t love in this style. However, in the 40J everything was contained but still on display. The cut is close to the Cabaret or Atomic Plunge in this size with very similar measurements but with shorter, slightly less projected cups. This frees up center tissue, which is ...nice for center full folks, but if you have soft center tissue you may experience quadding. The wires and straps were softer than the Cabaret. The straps adjusted fine for me but there was embellishment on the front like on the regular Princess. I had less gore gap in this bra than in the 40HH. There was some gapping at the strap in the 40J as the cups were slightly taller. The shape was super round in both, like if the Cleo Marcie were a low-cut plunge.
Comfort: The fabric was soft, no scratchy mesh here. The straps were also soft but a bit stretchy. I had no itchy issues with either the dotted fabric or the soft lace and ribbon top embellishment. This bra was a delight.
Style: The ribbon pulled out a bit on the top so there were loops sticking out when I looked down. I was not too bothered by it. I like the Princess so much better in black. I don't really care about the ribbons and bows and everything because I can't see it as much in black.
Very short, projected, close set, even, slightly narrow breasts....
Super cute. I'm fond of black, polka dots, sheer fabrics, and texture. Princess Plunge has it all https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
Whoa. This was uncomfortable. For some reason, the CK plunges don't fit me well. When removing the bra, the wire had slid 1/2" down within a few minutes. And, I presented quadding and huge wrinkles as well as non-fill in the bottom. I surmise this cut is not immediately projected enough for me. It does have ample room for upper fullness, however. If you are full on top and slightly less projected, this may be a ...great fit!
The second time I tried this bra, there were significant wire lines along the bottom of both breasts. Although I sincerely appreciate the aesthetics of this bra, I don't comfortably fit in 32F or 30G CK 2015+ plunges. Contrast the fit of this plunge to the 30G Ellace: there is a remarkable difference despite the dimensional similarity. I can wear Ellace all day with no downward shift and no discomfort. In this size range, Ellace and Florence are more immediately projected than the plunges. For science, I'll try the 30FF and hope the cup is .2" wider than the 32F Atomic Plunge.
I shifted the cup 1/2" toward the center: this fit well from a volume perspective. But, for some reason, these plunge cuts exacerbate my need for close-set cups. It appears the plunge wires shift the breasts to the center and trap my tissue, that needs to meet in the middle, under the gore wires. Consequently, there is little lift and quite a bit of discomfort. The balconettes fit much better despite the taller gore. So, I will cling tightly to the balconettes. Read more 184 more words
