This bra (the black with gold) is a bit tighter in the band than my Emily (blush) in the same size. I have only tried one romance and one Emily, so I don't know if it's due to the shape or the colour, since black bras can be a bit tighter.
I can comfortable put in on with no bulging or sliding around of my breasts. The band is probably too tight. I can wear it, but for a whole day it would be too tight. A size bigger would definately be too loose though, so I'll wear this with an extender until it stretches. I'm also ... in the process of losing weight, and I think that losing just a few kilos will make the band more comfortable.
The center gore is not too high, which I love, since I usually have a problem with it. It doesn't dig in and it sits (very) flat against me. My boobs sit close, but my breastbone doesnt have any tissue or fat on it, so it does press a bit to hard on the bone. This is because the band is a little tight. It doesn't dig in.
The wings has an excellent height and don't cut me at the armpit/arm (where the strap is attached) as many bras do. It's lower than the Emily which do cut me there (in case you have the Emily and you're looking to buy the romance).
When I lie down on my back the boobs do escape some towards the armpit, but generally they actually stay in place mostly.
I think it's true to size. The 32 band is a little too tight and I measure 33", so that seems reasonable. The cups don't cut in and they are not too deep and not too shallow.
My bigger boob is slightly more pointy than my smaller, but it's barely noticeable, and I think it's due to the cup size being barely big enough of my bigger boob. A cup size bigger would be too big though. A too small cup can make the breasts look pointy in the Curvy Kate. I really really don't like the pointy shape at all, but the slight pointy-ness is acceptable and will probably change when the bra has been washed a few times and most likely also with future weightloss.
