    Didn't fit

    Owned in Plum/Watermellon and White/China Blue colourway.

    Despite the wires being too wide, the bra is generally good for my breast type, being very open in the upper section.

    Most of the time, it is too big for me. But during the two weeks before menstruation, it fits me very wel, while the smaller bras become too small.

      Yikes, so tall! Depending on how large the cups were on you, a smaller size should have shorter cups.

    • Larger breasts are also"taller" so if you had been large enough to fill the original cup depth, your underboob crease would have been lower and the wires would have sat much lower on your body. I wouldn't advise taking in the cups on wired bras by more than an inch or two because otherwise you will run into the same problem--wires wider and much taller than you want.

      FYI, this model is Curvy Kate Romance!
      I had it as well, indeed it's less tall in a smaller size:

    The wire was way too narrow for me. I could barely wait to get it off.

    This bra I bought while in between sizes, or to be more precise, working out which size I generally would wear in different makes. A beautiful bra in dark grey with light mint green embroidery. I especially love the button-like detailing between the cups, on the band. It fits me perfectly, apart from the roominess in the cups. It is just too much loose fabric on the top of the cups. I don't know if it is my lack of projection or wrong shape, but the bra definitely looks big in the cups halfway up.
    Initially, I think, I didn't really know how a soft three-piece cup bra ... should fit after a decade of wearing mostly moulded T-shirt bras (in the wrong sizes https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> ).
    For me the strap width is ideal - I prefer wide straps for everyday wear - somehow feels more secure. Straps are fully adjustable and good lenght for my hight (5'2" / 158cm). Band is true to size, works fine on the loosest hook. With this size, maybe the wings could be higher, but it's not a problem.
    This style has virtually no cup separation at the top of the gore and not much at the bottom either, which is definitely a good thing for me.
    Update: Now with some tissue migration I fill in the cups, I'd say the real size would be 30E for FOB shapes. Excellent style for short roots, close together projected breasts.

    Didn't fit

    While I do like the design / look of this bra, the fit is not great.

    A bit too east-west for me and the straps set are too far apart, which makes them chafe my armpits.
    The top of the cups slightly cut into my boobs, sometimes visible under clothing.

    As I'm finding bras that fit me better, I find myself wearing this less.

    Plum / watermelon colorway

    CK bras always fit me a little weird - this one gets a bit wrinkly at the bottom but not enough to say that it's too big. It's otherwise comfortable.

    Really, really disappointed with this bra.

    It is super cute, and the embroidery on the front is really pretty, but it just does not work as a bra. I'm glad I got it on a sale, because I can't even wear it

    The shape it gives, instead of a nice rounded "wow, boobs are being lifted" kind of shape, is a weird wedge shape with a heavy push to the center (of the chest, not the breasts). The bra flattens out the sides of my boobs and is generally just not attractive on.

    The fabric is itchy and uncomfortable, straps cut, and the top of the fabric doesn't tack down right. It puckers and cuts in and then flares out at the very top of the cups.

    The gorge tacks nicely, but the wires are placed too far apart and extend too far into the armpits to work.

    The strap separation being too far apart for me with curvy kate is more of a problem because the rosettes are a coarse material and chafe

    32G

    Didn't fit

    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.
