If you are close-set/full in the middle like me, this bra may be a little much. At least for everyday wear...my hubby would be very upset if I sent it back! The detailing on this bra is incredible. There is black mesh with embroidery layered over a satin cup (a pale gold color satin in this case), and the little buttons on the center gore match the satin. The materials are very soft and luxurious, and the cups cotton-lined. The bra is surprisingly comfortable. I have just a bit of quadraboob, as it is SO plunging, but showgirl cleavage as well. I would probably benefit from something like a 28K, but that doesn't exist in this range.
This is a stunning looking bra it runs incredibly small though. Even back when this bra was supposed to fit it was massively too small and my boobs kept falling out even though they are wide set. Such a shame! Glad I got the Curvy Kate Temptress now which is exactly what I was expecting when I bought the Tempt Me - the cups of the Temptress are definitely more true to size!
I've done it, I think. I've finally found my bra that fits! It's absolutely gorgeous, the black mesh overlay the lace detailing, the bows at the strap/cup meeting, the button on the gore... Absolutely breathtaking. The band feels like heaven, soooooo comfy. The gore tacks without digging into breast tissue, and I feel so freaking sexy in it. It's a shame I'm only just discovering this after they've discontinued it, I'll have to look into the Curvy Kate brand and see if they have current bras with the same cut. <3
I knew it wasn't going to fit when I bought it. I'm discovering that my regular Curvy Kate size should be somewhere in the vicinity of 32HH/J, so ideally, I'd like a Tempt Me that was at least a cup volume, maybe two, larger than this. But they're not made, so I take what I can get. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
I've heard others say the band runs a full band size or more large. Since I'm needing the extender initially, I wonder if "full band size" is maybe an overestimate. But that will depend on how quickly it stretches out.
The cups are shallow but padded and very comfy. I especially have space at the bottom of the cup, from where my more projected breast is pushing on it to make room.
It doesn't rub or chafe, but I do have to readjust frequently -- but again, I think that's more a factor of improper size than it is an inherent problem with the bra.
This bra does not work for me because there isn't enough room in the bottom of the cups for my bottom heavy boobs. So I end up getting quadraboob. I really wanted this one to fit me because I love the button detail and the circle patterned mesh overlay. I think this bra has the potential to be a great bra, but I would need more room in the bottom of the cups. As this is the largest cup size for this band size, this one's not a keeper for me. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
I love this bra. It fit comfortably, although it does rub against my armpits slightly. It wasn't too bad. I wore it for a while and then the problem solved itself. It gives good cleavage, which is the reason I got the bra in the first place, without pushing me out of the cup. It gives good coverage and keeps me in whenever I jog, dance, and jump and it's fantastic. I am a fan of the tight bands, and I can't complain, because it's as tight as I could want it, on the loosest clasp. I would recommend it for anyone who loves showing off their breasts, and are proud of their body.
