Beautiful bra with such neat accents! I love the color combo. The appearance is very similar to my beloved Emily (which, sad day, no longer fits).
I was hoping this would fit because it has quite a decent depth to it, but it's definitely too tall for my boobs! I fill out the bottom, but I lack the upper fullness to fill the top. This might be more suited to a medium projected 28GG who is more FOT (I'm normally closer to 30F/FF, FOB and medium+ projected).
The band is what shocked me the most (and it's the reason I've decided not to just try to alter the bra). It is on par with the tightness of the 28 Cleos I recently ordered. I thought CK ran looser, but apparently not in this case. The wires start to distort at around 26-27 inches. I could barely get it on without the extender.
I don't know what I was thinking by going down to a 30 band, I am in between 32 and 34. I guess I just wanted the Romance Bra Really,Really badly. I have to wear 2 bra extenders to fit in this and the underwire is way too wide, the cups way too big. Overall a bad investment in my part https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Pretty though.
So the band of a new 28F would be way. too. small. I got this 2nd hand from a friend who found it too stretched out...I'm a biggish 30/small 32 generally but since it was a trade it was worth a shot.
In the cup it is pretty much perfect. The shape could be a touch better, the Princess model is a better shape on me I think, the seam kinda leads to a minor oddity if I'm inspecting closely, but it's supportive and fits adn no quadboob (horray). The back is too tight without an extender, but it's fastenable, just kind of awful after about an hour and a half. It's probably the size of a tight 30 by now.
I wouldn't likely buy one new, definitely not in this size. In a sister size though if ti was on sale yeah I might.
I wore this bra for most of today and it's delightfully comfortable while looking great. I get that weird upsidedown 7 shape from it a bit, but I don't really care about that so much. As long as it keeps the back pain away, I don't care too much about shape. The gore seems a little too narrow for me? As I move side to side, there are empty spaces on either side of the gore.
I love this bra. There's a little wrinkling and weirdness in the top half of the cup, but it's only noticeable in thin shirts. I LOVE the purple color and the appliqué pattern. Overall it's comfortable, the fabric is soft, but it gives good support and a nice round shape. This is my first Curvy Kate bra, and I might have to try some other styles.
