This was my first 28D bra after I got fitted! I was so excited and thought I'd buy this online as there was a sale.
I absolutely love the bright orange colour with the cute and sexy details to it! It fits me really well but will not fit someone who is top heavy. So shallow breasted ladies with a wide root/bottom heavy will probably find that this fits like a glove!
The only thing is that the bra is Abit stiff and the wires dig in a little..but then I'm quite bony so prolly not a problem if you have some padding..!
The bra definitely looks seemless and give a good shape under t shirts! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Update: I have worn this bra many times now and it is definitely comfortable. There are some slight gap underneath the right cup though as my tught Breast is smaller than the left. The wires no longer dig in and the bra comfortably holds up my girls https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
Alas, another disappointing fit experience with Curvy Kate! I've wanted to wear their bras for ages but had a rather painful Showgirl bra a few years ago (I think it was a 30DD) and have shied away since. But...but...they're so cute! So I tried again with Starlet in 30F and 30FF.
(Note: I'm not standing off-kilter or anything in my photos; I have scoliosis, which gives me a high hip, protruding/twisted ribcage, and attendant issues. Thanks for understanding!)
Both bras left me with pretty serious orange in a glass syndrome, though it was, strangely enough, more pronounced in the 30F than this, the 30FF. I don't even know where to ...go with that. Obviously both will be sent back, and I've no idea where to go from here!
The straps seem to be a bit wide-set, but it's not too awful for me, but I have a pretty pronounced dip that seems to keep most straps in the right place (and as I've recently begun lifting weights again, this will probably only get 'better').
The fit is nice and firm even though, as always, I prefer a tighter band; sometimes I suspect that due to the spinal deformity, the tissue on my right breast tends to migrate back into the wing unless the band itself is tight. If anyone else has scoliosis of any degree, I'd love to hear your experiences with bra fitting, too!
It's a shame; this is a pretty bra in a molded smooth cup of all things; I really don't like unmolded bras and prefer the shape and modesty they provide. I also have to say that I'm not terribly fond of the cut of this bra—the cups seem large to me and cover too much, if that makes sense. It seems I'm shallow-breasted, though, and perhaps this just is not the cut for me?
So...what do I do? Perhaps try the same cups in a 28 band? Or is this just the wrong bra for me? Read more 221 more words
I love the color and the details. It fits on top and in the middle...but the bottom is not projected enough and the bottom of the cup buckles. I think this is better for more even-full breasts with not a lot of projection.
This bra gives a ton of lift and has a fairly strong band compares to the unlined styles (not a lot of stretch probably due to the moulded cups). It fits a little wonky. I don't think there's enough depth for my projection and it was kind of a struggle though the day to keep things sitting correctly. It fit better than CK Daily Dream for me though. I believe it's discontinued (?) so there weren't a lot of options for trying different sister sizing or changes for cup/band. It was super flattering while wearing a shrug over a fitted camisole though. The wings felt a little high for my short torso. The underwire channels are probably about an inch longer than the underwire itself which seems to contribute to the wonky fit. The star charm at the gore is super cute and none of the style details interfere with any tops. It's close to being good for me, but I find it overall just okay.
Starlet CK2501 in 30J Adding bra in for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database. ☺ Starlet is a padded bra with molded cups. The color is Tigerlily, which is a dark peach. The pattern is diamond shapes in the same color, so quite subtle.
The band measures 23” to a max of 28.5” making it tight even for a 28”, and not at all doable as a 30 band. It has 3 hooks and 3 rows of eyes
Cup depth was 12.25” as measured by hovering the cup between the knees and placing the tape measure into the cup without any resistance, to a max of 12.5” stretched over the knee, so basically no stretch to them. This is not a true to size bra based on these measurements and has less depth than the Portia Ribbon 30H bra I used to have.
The band fits well, the gore tacks fine, and the straps are fully adjustable. This bra style is best for outer fullness, not center fullness. The cups are fully moulded and lightly padded. The straps are set wide in the front and cut into my shoulders due to my narrow set shoulders. It almost feels as if my tissue puddles into the middle of the bra and I don't fill out the outer portions of the cup. This was a great experience to demonstrate how different styles and designs can look on the same body. Finding the right one is hard work, but a learning experience!
