This is by far the best fitting Curvy Kate bra that I have found so far. While I love the Tease Me, the bands have given me trouble. The 28 fits more like a 26 and the 30 fits more like a 32. The gap in sizing in the Thrill me bra isn't nearly as bad. This 28 band fits more like a 30 and I have to wear it on the tightest hook row. The cleavage is a perfect, not too much. Many complaints have been about ability to wear under clothes. I have yet to find a bra in ... my size (28HH) that does not show under tank tops. Living in Texas this means I either have to alter my tank tops, which never come out fitting right anywhere else, or deal with my bra straps showing. I prefer the latter. At least these are a pretty color and have cute bows. So what if I look like "that mom" of my kid. Tell the bra industry to start making bras for larger cup sizes on thin people to be worn under clothes. Tell the fashion industry to start making clothes that fit in the bust readily and affordably available to the general public. Enough for my rant.
I wear alot of loose boyfriend style or small men's off shoulder type shirts. The ribbon is not very noticeable with these. A long necklace gives amazing "seatbelt cleavage" so it doesn't look like I'm wearing a sportsbra or "uniboob" effect. It also allows for a thin frame with large breasts to be able to wear non-form fitting clothing without looking 15 pounds heavier. Long heavy pendant necklaces rock. Other than small men's tshirts, my "uniform" is black tank tops or cheap black v or scoopneck fitted tshirts from Ross junior's department. I own 20 of each. The ribbon is noticeable, the scoop or v-neck shows collar bones but doesn't go crazy with cleavage, and this bra, unlike the illfitting VS dream angels push ups I used to wear before learning there is more to life than DDD. For those who are thin with large bust, things like collar bones on fitted clothing and "seatbelt cleavage" from necklaces on looser clothing can equate 15 lbs. Seriously. On the tight fitting clothes it so nice to finally have a bra that doesn't give me bra bulge, armpit fat, back fat, etc, from miscplace breast tissue. For years I have HATED the back fat effect under fitted clothing because my bra band was too big and my cup size too small. This bra does a tremendous job with helping that. Its still a little loose in the band but its better than I've experienced yet.
