    Didn't fit

    Noob originally called my attention to this bra with her review( http://www.bratabase.com/browse/curvy-kate/tempt-me-plunge-bra-sg4001/) And once I saw it I had to have it! I went full on MY PRECIOUS! And I scoured the inter webs. As the style is discontinued, I thought it would take some digging, but I found a secondhand one on eBay within 15 minutes. My breast shape is wide, tall full on bottom and sides and slightly shallow on top, and this seems to work quite well with it. I originally was going to order a 30E, but bratabase steered me toward the 30F. I'm not sure if curvy kate runs small, but the recommendation seemed to be about right. Any who, the first thing I noticed is how soft this bra is. The cups are really comfortable, and the straps are a good thickness. Mine was a little worn, and as a result, I snapped one of the top buttons off. I don't think that is standard though. All in all one of my more comfortable bras.

      Looks pretty good on you, maybe a little small in the cups. Yeah from my experience, the pink and black one ran really small in the cups so I'm glad you sized up at least!

      Agree a bit small in the cup, but super great lift!! Perfect if you ever have a deep or swooping shirt neckline!

      I really like this bra too! I hope there's one for the finding when I have the extra funds to get one! It looks great on you.
      I have to agree with everyone else, the cups seem too small for you. It also appears to be too shallow, it looks like there is some collapsed cup beneath your breast which is keeping the wire from being in your IMF.

    • Thank you so much guys! Wow i really needed your feedback! If anything i thought the cups were a little too big on the left boob. Do you think a cup size up or this is not the shape for me?

      This is not the shape for you. This is much too shallow for you - the underwire is obviously far below your IMF & there’s lots of empty space above the wire where the cup collapses. You are not shallow. This bra is very wide and shallow - you are projected.

      Ah, yep, now that I have the pictures larger in front of me on my computer rather than my small phone screen, I can see the very large empty area at the bottom and lower side of the cups. Agreed, definitely too shallow a shape. Too bad. :(

      I agree this bra is too shallow for you. But if you really like it, try the size up, see if you like the way that fits. Remember, if you love it and it is comfortable, it doesn't have to be a perfect fit! You just want to avoid squishing your boobs too much or the tissue could migrate!

    • Ahh good to know! Thank you all. I'm still learning what to look for in a well fitting bra. Although geez how small are these cups if I have to move up a G. Good thing I didnt buy the E cup I guess. As far as the bra being in the wrong place in relation to my IMF, is that a byproduct of putting the bra on incorrectly or a byproduct of lack of compatibility with the shape?

    • I would try the midnight/black or raspberry/charcoal if you really like this bra. I had this colorway in 28F, and it was too small but the 28FF just got taller in the cups, and really wide underwires and fit the IMF worse.

    • It's definitely not you! You could try to put the bra on perfectly as much as you want, and try to shove the bra up, but the cups will always be too shallow of a slant directly above the underwires, so the shape will never be compatible. It will forever slide down and have that empty space and wrinkles at the bottom.
      And btw, the next size up is FF, not G. :)
      Some bra cups are shaped more like < while others are shaped like C and all angles in between. You gotta find the correct slant or curve to fit the slant or curve of your breast. No amount of forcing can ever change how the bra cups were constructed! :)

    • Lol no idea how that posted twice, sorry!

      Noob thank you! I will see if maybe I can find that size
      Slava-Zone Aha! thank you so much! (Still so much to learn) I need to get it out of my head that I am rather shallow. I mean to me my chest looks tall and shallow, but that is not really the case it seems. Do you have any brand recommendations?

      Curvy Kate's bras are not all shallow EmmaOh , I've heard/seen really good things about their non-padded bras. I own their Kitty Padded Bra (discontinued) and it has a decent amount of projection and seems to have fairly stretchy cups instead of really stiff foam cups. Non-Padded cups really are the way to go in figuring out what you need in a bra and what shape you need and like the best. The constant recommendation is Cleo/Panache, Ewa Michalak, and Fantasie. Freya too of course. But Ewa & Cleo may be too narrow for you, Tutti Rouge could be an good choice. What exactly are you looking for in a bra? That could help narrow down recommendations.
      I just find bras I really like, research them on here and try them! Buy from somewhere with easy returns. I like buying off here because it's not retail price and feel more comfortable trying new bras that way. I can always re-list them if they don't fit!

      I just got the Curvy Kate Ellace and it's pretty good projection. My Cleo by Panache Marcie has really good projection. And I agree with Ewa Michalak having a good shape too.
      Stretchier materials are better for firm breasts, because you would need a bra in stiffer fabrics shaped absolutely perfectly for you, otherwise the bra will always be fighting to reshape tissue that just doesn't want to budge. The breasts will fight back and win, pushing the bra around. :P
      You may not necessarily be super projected, as there is a spectrum between shallow and projected, but the bottom of your breast can still need a lot of immediate projection regardless of overall breast depth.
      Just look at a lot of pictures on here, even if it's not in your size, to see overall cup shape and how in general it fits on breasts and how breasts sit in the cups. If there are reviews written, try to see if the person wrote about their breast shape and tissue density so you can get a verbal as well as visual idea of how certain breasts fit into the cups. It takes some time, but by looking at a lot of breasts, you can eventually recognize density and shapes, which will in turn help you match up yours and know your own shapes. Then, if someone has a similar shape or size range as you, you can follow them and maybe try the bras that worked for them! If you follow those opposite shapes and density of you, you might be able to buy the bras that weren't compatible with them as well!
      Those are a few tips and tricks to picking out bras that might work better before you even pay for them. :) There will still always be a lot of trial an error. BUT, eventually you'll have a "no" list of shapes, styles, and brands, so at least you've used process of elimination to make the list of possible bras to wade through just a bit smaller and easier to navigate. :)

      LeProfessor Thank you so much for your tips. I like things with a decent lift and not too much padding. I am still a little unsure of unlined bras. Is the only place to order Ewa from her website? I've been wanting to try hers.
      Slava-Zone Thank you so much for your help! I will be sure to spend time looking at all of the bras and all of the shapes! I took me a while to figure out mine is and I'm still not sure! Thank you so much for your help!

    • I know you can purchase Ewa from other places, I just can't remember for the life of me where. They sell them on the listings here from time to time. You might want to try a 70/32 in Ewa instead of a 65/30 because her bands tend to run tight, so I hear. I highly recommend non-padded cups for really figuring out shape, most women, including myself, are "afraid" of them and eventually find they are the best for fit and support!
      But I think you may really like Aerie bras. www.ae.com They have a wide variety of non-padded, lined, padded, and push-up. I've been wanting to try them myself but haven't gotten around to it.

    Didn't fit

    This bra did not fit at all. I bought it when I was still working out my bra size, so the band is too big, but it is also very large for a 30. The band is very stretchy and I'd recommend sizing down if you can. The cups were also too small and I had to size up two cups to get the right fit.

    It's a difficult bra to find the right fit in, but it's worth persevering as it is very comfortable in the right size. The cups are quite shallow, as I typically find in Curvy Kate bras and this results in a minimised profile.

    See my 28GG review for what I thought in of the correct size.

    This bra is not owned any more
