    I can't really give an accurate review of this bra, as it was way too small for me when I tried it on. My boyfriend bought me the Romance in a 32G and a 32GG, way back when I had first been measured correctly. I'm more of a 32H/HH now, but I can vouch for the Romance in the correct size - it gives a rounded shape, a little low but still nice. I also don't get any pointiness happening after a day of wear, unlike with some of my other unpadded Curvy Kate bras (the Dreamcatcher, for instance, does this on me). It feels the most open on top of any of the unpadded CK styles I've tried, and I feel like it'd be most suitable for someone with even fullness. The black and gold colourway is beautiful. In my experience the Romance runs true to size.

    I keep this bra on period-reserve when I'm PMSing and my breasts swell up a cup size. It fits fairly well then, but I definitely do not fill it completely when my hormone levels ease back to normal. Anywho, it does a good job keeping all the breast tissue in because the wires are incredibly wide. Though, if I don't do a thorough enough job scooping and swooping, the wires poke my axillary region.

    This bra gives me absolutely zero cleavage, which I guess is good under certain circumstances. I do prefer a bra to give me at least a little oomf, so I was a bit disappointed ... that a Curvy Kate bra couldn't do that (even at the peak of breast-swelling). All other signs point to the bra fitting well, so I've concluded that it's a great bra for wearing under professional button-up shirts and suits.

    **Updated Review**-01/07/2015
    While I don't usually go for unlined bras, I do have to admit that one of the benefits of wearing them is that they can still fit even after shape change or breast growth. This is what happened with me and the Romance. Basically my boobs grew and are now my old PMS size normally while my now-PMS size is closer to a 32GG in Curvy Kate sizing. Yet the bra still fits with no quadboob. The underwire is just a little closer to the forefront than it was.

    Only problem now is that I accidentally broke off one of the hooks on the loosest column because I suck at undoing 3-hook bras. So the band is on the tighter, more uncomfortable side of fit, which is poopie.

    This is such a nice looking bra, and I absolutely love the 3 rows of hooks. Sadly with my weight loss I can no longer fill the tops of the cups.

    My first impression seeing it was that the pictures don't do it justice (and it is way more see-through in person!). My first impression putting it on was that the band is very sturdy and does not have as much give as I am used to. My underbust is about 31", so it might be too tight for a real 32". My next thought was that the straps are very wide set, even for me (and I am pretty broad-shouldered for my size). My next thought was that it is a really nice looking bra, and it is sad that it looks like I just can't fill it. I tried adjusting the straps to be tighter, but it is just too big, which is a first for me as a busty girl with little ribs. I look forward to getting a better size for my body.
    It's about as comfortable as you would expect a pretty bra to be (a tad itchy) but I think after a few washings it could be better.

    This bra was comfortable for the most part. The right side fit perfectly but the left side wasn't really smooth. The straps are very comfortable, a very nice width.

    I love this bra. The band is a little snug, but supportive. It runs high under the arms, but not enough to poke. I actually like that it runs high since it encompasses any underarm chub rather nicely. The cups are lower cut that I expected, but it still provides adequate support. I have the purple & black pattern and it is gorgeous.
