I just HAD to try this bra when I found it on braswap, and was glad it was a bigger cup because I've had bad experiences with CK running small in the cups.
When I first opened the package, after I got over how pretty it is, I thought it was going to be too big but it is actually Almost too small. It looks too big when off, I think, because of all the material in the armpits.. it rubs me the wrong way :/ When I loosen the straps it helps a little.
It's a little shallow but not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I don't think I can keep it though :/ which is a shame because it's awesome cleavage, and I love the 3 hook closure.
Very pretty bra. Unfortunately, I ordered this as a sister size to a 34GG, but it did not work for me, I've tried several other Curvy Kates in the interim, and they just don't seem to work for me. Wore it once for a few hours, but it wasn't for me.
The Curvy Kate Tempt Me was comfortable and well-made. I like the combination of the red satiny fabric with the black mesh and embroidery, plus the cute buttons on the front. It seems to run about a half cup size small, although I'm not 100% sure of my size right now. The center gore is low, and the wires don't rise up too high or poke under the arms. Unfortunately, plunge styles just don't work for my shape; my boobs always fall out into the middle of the bra and leave empty space at the bottom, no matter the size of the bra.
The band is stretchy, but not as crazy as some of the other Showgirls I’ve tried on, so I started with a 32, although the 30 may work better now. The cups are three-part padded foam, and the seams are covered up on the front with the lace overlay, nicely done!
Unfortunately, the bottom of the cup is extremely shallow, so my breasts, which are bottom-heavy, leave an empty space there. This pushes them up some so that they do not use the entire cup of the bra, and more distressingly, pop out at the top. I had heard this bra runs small, so I ordered ...a cup size up (32GG). Obviously too small: I didn’t fill the bottom, but overflowed the top. I returned it for a size two up (32H), and I didn’t pop out quite as much, but the bra was still too small across the top of the cup, and there was the dreaded fabric fold on the bottom. I’ve seen this in other pictures, and I wonder if it’s a necessary evil to get that cleavage. In any case, I gave up and didn’t get a size up (32HH), because I didn’t think the under-fold would go away. This problem did not go away with wears/washes.
I don’t recommend jumping around in this bra, but it works decently if your day doesn’t involve a bunch of running. The bra not working with my shape and not giving enough support may have corrupted my data, though. It’s really a shame I didn’t have any luck with this shape- apparently Curvy Kate’s Elegance continuity line and Wild for this fall also use the same construction. I recommend you size up, and don’t get your hopes up for this bra if you are full on the bottom. Read more 197 more words
