Most comfortable bra I own as far as fabric and feel. However, the top of the cup indents my breasts just the tiniest bit when I have it adjusted properly. The straps are also too far apart - again causing an issue with rubbing my arms/armpits as I move throughout the day. Disappears under t-shirts, though. So, right now, this is my go to bra.
I like this curvy kate style. Full cup, high center gore, padding, all good for a nice support. I've tried smaller and larger sizes to this one, and I was expecting this to be the right one. It happens that it is a bit too small, but the 28F is too big. It makes a slight quad bood, and there's breast tissue not enclosed on the sides. I also can't fill the bottom of the cup. I kept it anyway, maybe it will fit when I get a little bit smaller. I think this is a sad case of style mismatch and between cups size https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
This is the holy grail of underwire, gore and, band fit for me. I wanted to love this bra so much, but the rest of the fit just doesn't work for me.
Sadly, like other reviewers out there, I did not fill up the top of the bra despite filling out the bottom of the cup nicely. It also seemed like the cups were too tall for my frame, and being slightly higher set. I feel like the straps are too wide for me, though that could be a result of cup fit issues and my hatred of most straps.
The fabric is very soft, but the lace is a bit annoying. The colour ultramarine has a pink contrasting bow on the front that looks a bit cheap, but overall a pretty bra.
Moulded cup lightly padded bra. It provides a good support due to it's 'full cup' style, with high center gore and high cup.
I found it difficult to fill the bottom of the cup because it is too shallow. Also, the shape of the cup has it's deepest point in the wrong place for me, and so, even though there is no empty space to the top of the cup, there is a little unfilled space inside. Due to its shape, the bra gives a more projected look, less round (breats very visible when looking on the side, and not visible on the front), a little bit pointy.
This was not my size at all! Cups too small and band too loose. I think Curvy Kate might be a brand where I'm a 28 band and maybe an FF or even G cup. Sizing issues aside, the bra itself was made of a material I didn't find comfy, but the color and aesthetic details were all very nice. I like the look of the gore very much, the way it can stretch to accommodate different breast separations.
Ugh. This is an unimpressive bra. I like to write positive reviews, but I'm overwhelmed with negativity regarding this bra.
Cons: 1. The gore is too wide. Great for wide-set breasts, but not my close set, center-full breasts. 2. The wings are a single layer of unsupportive mesh. 3. The straps are more narrow and less supportive than the straps I adore on my 30FF and 30G Curvy Kates. 4. Assembly errors in the lace decoration yield scratchy lace on skin. These errors, from my perspective, form irritating, multi-layer, fabric points under each breast. 5. If the gore (.9") were more narrow, the cups would fit very well. Today, they produce significant puckers on each side of the gore because the gore can't lay flat on my sternum. It sits atop both breasts. Ouch.
Pros: 1. Low wings 2. Shorter wire-no poking in my armpit 3. Smooth presentation under thin knits 4. Relatively thin, soft foam cups 5. Cups did not collapse with my projected pair
This feels like a $20 bra, and it is returning to Amazon. Sigh.
