I received this as a gift, thinking that it would fit but the cups were much too large so I decided to take them in. Overall though this bra isn't very friendly if you're on the short side because the sides will reach up into the high heavens.
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.

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.
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.
