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?
