I was excited to try Curvy Kate and this bra did not disappoint. It fits really well and is quite comfortable. I have it in Berry, and it is a pretty wine/cranberry colour with lovely lace details. It feels supportive and looks flattering. Straps adjust easily. It fits very true to size, both in the cups and band. I get just a hint of quad boob on one side- not enough to bug me. This one is a keeper.

Love it! I got a 28 instead of 30, so I added an extender, but this fits me perfect in the cups, better than my 30f. 28f which of it was a 30 would be an e, is just right for me on this bra because it runs true to size and is open on top. Being fot, I usually have to size up.

28F has the same issues as 28E, but doesn't gape that badly, I coul get rid of that gape if I removed the straps closer to the center. However, the cups are too narrow and cut into my left breast painfully.

November 2015: Haha, I guess that as I continue to find bras that fit me more and more, the more and more lazy I become about leaving a review. I mean, if it fits near perfectly, what more is there to say?!
I guess a few tiny fit issues: the wires are like a quarter of an inch too narrow and/or a bit too stiff. When I first pull the wires back as I swoop and scoop, it fits perfectly, but the wires are very stiff and don't want to bend out of shape, so eventually they relax back to their rigid shape ... and sit right on the edge between my breast root and chest wall, where I'd rather have it sit right behind it. The cup depth/projection fits my left side perfectly, but for some reason, even with a cookie added to the right side, there's like an eight of an inch gap right over my apex. Maybe the cup lace/seam is just shaped a tiny bit weirdly? This bra gives me a great shape under shirts, and gives me a slightly narrower profile from the front view than the Maddie. It does a good job at pushing my wide-set tissue forward and up. If you compare my Maddie 28FF angle view and this bra's angle view, you can see I have more projection here. My side view pictures is weird, I must have been arching my back or something, because I get more side projection as well but it's hard to see that. Maddie is still my all-time favorite, mostly because slightly too-wide wires is more comfortable than slightly too narrow, but this is definitely my second favorite bra. I bought this bra on a trip to The Pencil Test in Portland, OR (if you live within a few hundred miles, go there!!! Just look at the Yelp rating and reviews!! ) because it's the only place that carries 28 bands that are reasonably priced in a billion mile radius (well and cuz the reviews.. the owner is a BOOB GODDESS) and found this on the sale rack for, like, $30-ish I think. I went there thinking I'd get the Charlotte in 28FF and ended up walking away with this instead! The fabric is very luxurious, and the color is such a rich red, I LOVE IT. My husband loves it. Win!! I've only had this bra for a little less than half a year, but I'm already on the second hook. This and the Maddie are my only fitting bras that have fit me for the last 6 months or so, so they're both quickly wearing out. My boobs need to stop growing!! (And I need to stop sitting on my as 24/7 on the computer and gaining weight, hehe, eating green only gets you so far...)
Sorry the review was a very large and unorganized block.

This bra runs small. I am still figuring out what size I wear, but this bra is still smaller than other brands in the same size. That being said, I still didn't really have a bad "quad boob" they were just completely hanging out... So I think since this bra is a balcony it is a lot more open on the top side of the cup- preventing quad boob. Pretty bra though!
