What a surprising bra - it's many things that I thought wouldn't work for me - some aesthetic (read: RED!), others more practical - it has very short wires which are usually a no-no for me and mean I spill out of the sides. I usually hunt for the polar opposite as I thought I needed long wires for my under-arm tissue. Weirdly I don't seem to get side-spill with this and it's remarkably comfy. It's the first Curvy Kate bra I've tried in a long time and the only one I've ever found that works for me - I wanted the Starlet so desperately ... (and so much so that I first tried it a year or two ago, only to re-order recently after some changes in my boobs in the hope it would work now, but still to no avail). This is for full on the bottom folks definitely - it's fairly closed at the top despite having quite a bit of projection and a reasonably deep apex that initially I wasn't sure about. However as it is so closed on the top my breast is somewhat redistributed to fill the space - and give me a pretty awesome cleavage (which only ever happens with Deco). I've warmed to the colour and now really like it, the design is stunning. It has the appearance of a moulded bra but is actually not - it has some light padding/shaping though so kind of functions as one in my bradrobe.
Only thing I'd change would be to have a wider band - this one is comfortable and a standard 30 but I'd always favour three hooks over two....straps are great, comfortable and a good thickness.
A suprisingly awesome bra....and just heard it's coming out in Champagne/black colourway so will prob purchase it in this colourway too...
