I've seen some people having issues with spillage, and I do too. Not too bad, but I have to pay attention if I bend over too far. Oops, gotta put the nips back! XD Other than that, fits great and is so pretty https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I wanted the pink/black colorway, but ended up with the gold/black. Band seems pretty TTS, maybe a little tight actually, contrary to the loose reviews I've seen. I wear a 30, so 28 with an extender fits ok, albeit a tiny bit tight. After some wear, it should be fine. Cups, on the other hand, seem to run ...quite small. I wear a G-GG, which would be a 28GG-H. HH doesn't cover as much as I would like, but that may be just the style. It gives me weird fit issues: the cups seem really wide and extend really far back into my armpits, and it gives my boobs a weird, short look. Like, instead of being two O's, my boobs look more like ovals. I thought this meant the cups were too small, but maybe it means they're too big? Any suggestions? I'd like to try this in a 28J/30HH, or a 28H/30GG. Read more 96 more words
I measure 29 inches underbust, so I usually wear 30 bands, but I'm glad I went with the 28 for this one. It fits perfectly on the loosest hooks. Following others advice, I did size up in the cup for this too.
I have very wide set, bottom heavy boobs, so plunges aren't fantastic for me. However, the wide set cups fit my shape pretty well. This probably wouldn't work for someone with close set boobs as the cups are very far apart.
I can't quite fill the top of the cups, but wouldn't size down, as I would spill out the ...middle. I do get a little quad-boob when I move my arms around, but nothing too bad. I don't get the fantastic cleavage some do in this bra. But it does bring my boobs forward pretty well. I find during the day I end up with some empty space at the bottom of the cup, but this isn't noticeable under clothing, and doesn't affect the fit for me.
The cups are quite revealing, lots of my chest is exposed, so I'm not sure how it would hold up doing a lot of moving around. It is a nice change though, often G+ bras look huge.
The cups are fairly tall near the straps, and do rub a little under my arms. The wings are visible under some lower armed tops, and the straps are quite far apart.
I can't wear this bra for very long though. Every time I bend over, my boobs make an escape out the middle. So it's good for lounging around in, but doesn't really work as an everyday bra. Read more 174 more words
This is probably at least a size too small, but the cup edge doesn't cut in. I found it quite comfortable until I put on a bit of weight recently and now it's a bit tight in the band. Bizarrely I also own this in a 32F which fits about the same. One size up only sits further back under my armpits and higher on my breast. Cup is quite shallow.
Quite pleased with the fit of this bra, except that the straps are a bit too wide set. That's a recurring problem for me though. My boobs are quite close together and fuller on top - this bra definetely gives some cleavage. So maybe not for everyday wear.
As with most Curvy Kates, buy a larger cupsize than usual. Normally I'm more of an 32E, in CK I'm 32F, leaning towards 32FF.. I did get my normal band size (32/70) and this fits well. Haven't worn this bra much so can't comment on stretching / washing / wear and tear.
Currently this bra is on the small side and it gives some push, but not yet in the quad boob zone. As I haven't been able to excercise much (knee injury) I'm planning to get back to doing some sports - expect to lose a small amount of weight - it should fit perfectly then.
Band: pretty firm. I have 26" ribcage and it feels nice and snug. Cups: underwires are not very curved, and the cups are pretty shallow. The lace details on the cups show under tight or thin shirts. The center gore is wide.
Technically this bra "fits" other than maybe a tad too wide gores, but something doesn't seem right on me.. Not quite sure but perhaps it's the shape.
This is such a beautiful bra, but I think it's just not meant for my boobs. Based on reviews I sized down in the band and up in the cup (from my regular 32E to a 30FF, and I really do think this is the right size for me but the shape just doesn't work. I'm usually wary of plunges because I have soft breasts, but I wanted to try this one because I read that its good for shallow breasts. It IS shallow, and part of the fit problems I'm having might be because its a bit too shallow but mostly I think this isn't working because ...the cups are too far apart for me. If I just hold the cup up to my boob in encloses all of my breasttissue. When I'm wearing the bra, though, I have empty space on the sides of the cups and quadboob in the middle (a problem that's made worse by my soft breasts.
Other than person fit, this is a great bra. The blue with the black lace is gorgeous, and the inside lining is super soft. Also, the wider straps are great. Only real quality complaint is that the buttons on gore don't seem to be as secure as the could be. Read more 104 more words
I have shallow, full on the sides breasts that are weirdly close together. This bra gives me cleavage! The underwires are wide enough and the cups are shaped exactly the same way I am. This bra is supportive and gorgeous. Only complaints: My torso is narrower than the bra is. I'd love if the gore were even narrower (keep it a plunge!) and if the straps attached to the cups closer together at the front.
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.
