This bra almost fit me but had some issues. The tops of the cups were a little wrinkled although the bottoms were filled out fine. The wires were too wide, a problem I have with almost every bra. Other than these issues, the bra was a pretty good fit. I didn't get the chance to measure this bra or take a picture of the tag before I sent it back.
Beautiful bra, but I've learned that Curvy Kate bras don't work well with my breasts. They don't cut in anywhere, and give adequate support...but they give me that "upside down 7 shape". For reference, I'm pretty even (top and bottom), but have wide set, splayed breasts.
I bought this bra along with the 30H black and red version at the same time. This one fits a smidge better than the black and red one, although it is still about a cup size too big for me. I ended up ordering this same bra in 30GG and it pretty much fits me perfectly now. I really like this bra.
I have worn this one approximately 10 times, so there is some wear and tear to the bra, including some slight discoloration under the arm and a small amount of fraying on the end of one of the straps. But overall it is still in very good condition and it was only hand washed and air dried.
I have worn this bra only one time for about 10 hours. It is a very nice bra, but the cup size is about one size too big for me. I have this same bra in 30H in the plum/watermelon color and it fits better, but is still just a smidge too big, but not enough to sell, yet. The straps on this one are too wide and cut into my upper armpit which just makes it too uncomfortable to wear. I normally wear a 30GG, but decided to size up in the cup because I read the cups can run small in some Curvy Kate bras. I'm sure this would fit fine in my regular size.
I bought this bra in 30GG and it pretty much fits me perfectly now. I also have this is 30H and it's just slightly too large in the cup for me. This is one of my favorite and best fitting bras. Just about perfect all around.
I grabbed this on sale, knowing it wouldn't fit in the band, but for only AU$20 I couldn't resist. As I suspected, the band is far too tight for me -- but an extender takes care of that nicely.
The cups fit well. I get a little bit of what feels like quadboob near the gore, but I think it's actually a slight shape incompatability, the gore being too low to contain my inner fullness. When I push there, I don't get any quadboob higher up, so I think this is the right cup volume. I haven't worn it long enough to judge the wire width properly; I suspect ...they're actually too wide for me, but not to an uncomfortable degree, so for now I'm marking them as a fit.
The gore is a little too wide, but its low height means it's mostly out of my way.
The look of this bra is a little overdone for my taste. I could definitely do without the rosebud swirl things along the back of the band.
Fully adjustable straps (with side edging to stop slipping), and 3 hooks in the band, which is lovely. (I suspect I'd lose that if I sister-sized up to the 30FF?)
*Edited to add: holy irritated armpits! Having worn the bra all day, the cups are so high they're sawing off my armpit. Read more 117 more words
I've been admiring this one from afar for a while and encountered one listed on here, in a sister size from one of my recommendations. I thought it would be too small, but I took a leap of faith. It turned out to indeed be too small. It's cute though. Someday, I plan to buy one of these in a 34 JJ or so. Probably in one of the black base colour ways with purple or red.
The romance is a really pretty bra. I love the red and black together, and it has very nice details. It's comfy too, which is nice. There are a few things I don't care for-it's a little too East /West for my liking, but it's not obvious to anyone but me. And the wire doesn't go all the way up the gore, so while it tacks to where the wire stops, there's another half an inch that isn't wired and sticks out funny. Also, my husband quite likes it of course because it's partially sheer (which is why I didn't photograph myself in it). It's good quality, but I think it needs a bit of adjusting to make it the perfect bra-maybe slightly less wide wires, and definitely a longer wire that goes all the way to the top of the gore.
Seriously incredibly poor fit. The cup is a size too small, at best, and I do normally wear a 28DD. The side sling formed by the straps is pulled too tight, even when the straps are too loose. Despite that, the top edge gapes and the top portion of embroidered fabric wrinkles terribly. My breasts are forced into the center by the sides creating a cut-into quadboob effect which makes a terrible shape.
