I am 26" under and 33" around. Very close together breasts so I need plunges like this bra! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Would be a 26F but usually happy enough in 30DD or 28s of some sort.
Some people have mentioned the cups being weirdly tall but I didn't notice a difference on this style versus the other plunges.
Fits just like the Wild bra, but a bit sturdier so I wear this one more often. Soft material. Low gore with cute buttons. Nice and tight band. No push-up padding. I think I generally would need a 28E as a sister size, but the cups seem to run small in this style and other Curvy Kates so I like a 28F.
I am majorly spilling out of this bra, which may be why I love the "shape" it gives my breasts. I don't think the moulded cup is working for me, as my breast never fills the bottom bit of the cup and I end up with a fold/crease.
I love the shape and it's quite comfortable. I do think one cup size up would fit better. I quadboob out of it, but it takes part of the day as everything moves for that to happen. Definitely doesn't fit the way I initially thought it did, which is disappointing, because it's very pretty, and otherwise very comfy, and I do like it.
One thing I've noticed is that the band stretches on this bra. It's comfortable, but maybe a little loose as a result. I think a size down would be better. A 30 band for me, not 32, which is what Bratabase suggests I should be in.
First of all, I love the appearance of this bra, and I got it for only $12 on eBay. Unfortunately, while it looks great at first glance from the front, it just isn't the right shape for me. My tissue is even-full on top and bottom-and there isn't enough immediate projection in the cups, especially at the bottom, where I get a tiny bit of orange in a glass effect over the course of the day, while my breasts quadboob out the top. It gives really nice cleavage, however, I just have to adjust a lot during the day to avoid looking strange and being uncomfortable.
The band ...is a little looser, and I can easily wear it on the tightest hooks if I want. The center gore floats a tiny bit, and is too wide, so it rests on breast tissue. I think I have too much center fullness for the height of the gore, because I tend to overspill a lot in that area of the bra. Perhaps plunges aren't for me, which is unfortunate since my torso is short, and my choices seem to be a ogre that is too high or a gore that is too low.
I also have to fasten the straps nearly to the shortest they go, and in fact can wear it with them adjusted all the way, though I wish I didn't need to. As usual, they are too wide set for me.
All in all, a lovely bra, but too shallow for my shape. It'll have to do until I find something better, though. Read more 155 more words
Really pretty bra that I kept even though it doesn't fit that well. The band doesn't fit and the cups are too small! It just didn't fit me well enough to provide adequate support so I never really wore this bra. Too bad because it's beautiful!
Too small and too shallow for me! I would guess I'd need approximately two cup sizes up to fit my breasts in, but the shape would still not work for me. However, it does give awesome cleavage. Definitely a bedroom bra.
Band: I got a 28J instead of my usual size in CK, 30H or 30HH, because I had read that this bra runs big in the band. Unfortunately I probably would have been better off with a 30HH- I had to use an extender to be able to wear this and still breathe! I CAN wear it on the loosest hook, but when I do the gore and wires under my armpits start to get distorted/stretch out- clearly not a good fit.
Shape: I was expecting a nice "purple" cleavage push up shape (@BrasIHate's purple shape: http://brasihate.blogspot.com/2012/01/what-exactly-is-good-shape.html), but for some reason this bra gives ...me a "blue shape". Maybe my boobs are too wide set and full on the bottom, this might be better for someone with closer set boobs that are more full on top.
Cups: The cups are really weird for me. The wires are so wide they extend well beyond my armpits into my sides, and there's a lot of gaping right below the straps on the upper corners of the cups. If I swoop and scoop I do fill the cups, but after even a minute of wearing the weight of my boobs sort of pushes the cup material down and to the side. I think I need more support on the side of the cups and narrower wires. A balcony shape fits me much better, sadly I guess I should avoid plunges.
Appearance: All that being said, this is a lovely bra. The lace overlay on top of the sateen material is sexy and cute, and I love the little button on the gore. I wish this one had worked out for me! Read more 177 more words
This is a gorgeous bra. I love the design and the fabric. It is soft and comfortable. Unfortunately, it gives me quad-boob. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Also, because my boobs don't quite fit into the cups, the bra's satin parts get a wrinkly look to them when I am wearing it. Would better suit someone else! Totally gorgeous when not on me. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />
Fill out the bottom comfortably, but bra gapes at the top. There's a lot of empty space under where the straps join the cup, where I don't have any breast tissue. There's also a bit of gaping in the cups at the bottom centre near the gore, though I get a nice bit of cleavage further up.The band is very stretchy, and the last hook is slightly too loose.
