This bra is comfortable and well made, even though it is too small in the cup for me. The cups are lightly padded. It gives me an amazing cleavage, partly presumably because it is too small in the cups for me.
The underwire is a little high in the centre, not a problem for me, but it may be for some.
The straps appear to be set quite far apart, again not an issue for me, but may be for some.
If this came in 28K I'm sure it would be perfect for me.
I´m really happy for my Curvy Cate bras so far! This bra has a very nice color, actually the reason for buying it. I have once tried the black one, but didn´t buy it, because it was a 32E, as I usually use, but in this style to small in the cups and to big in the band. This style is a balconette and therefore, like the “Tease me” bra, you don´t get the cleavage, but more a lift. So like my other Curvy Cate bra, go up a cupsize, and down a bandsize. But amazing color, it´s even prettier in real!”
Another bra I love. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Super cute & very comfortable! This is my first Curvy Kate bra. I read another bra which suggested to order a band size down and I'm glad I did. I have this bra on the loosest band but it's still a comfortable fit and gives room for the bra to stretch over time. Since I ordered down a band size I also ordered up 2 cup sizes (following the down a band size, up a cup size rule of thumb) as another review had suggested that the Curvy Kate cup sizes run small. Another suggestion I'm glad I took! Fits just right. Not a bra for everyday t-shirt use but definitely special.
This is the Thrill me in black/white. I ordered it, because the 30GG was too big and the other 30G listed here in cobalt fits perfectly. But this colour seems to be bigger than the cobalt (I must say, I really hate that, when a colour is bigger or smaller than the other, but it's very often like that), so I also will send it back, and order a cobalt in 28GG or something like that. The band is the same as in 30GG and smaller than the cobalt.
This bra is so strange on me, yet I kind of love it. It doesn't fit at all, but it's comfy and cute, and I'm keeping it!
I bought it on a swap page in a lot, I paid less than $5 for it. I love the colors - mine is purple with teal trim, and those are 2 of my favorite colors!
Since it's secondhand, I probably won't enter measurements for this one - it is beyond stretched out. Normally I wear a 34 band, and occasionally a 32 band in some of the stretchier ones, but this is a 32 that I can easily fasten on the ...tightest hooks and it's STILL a little loose. So it's a 32 that fits like a big 36? Something in that neighborhood.
The cups give the strangest effect. My husband loves this bra, ha! It makes my boobs very wide and flat. If it weren't for the va-va-voom appearance of the bra itself and the "cakes on a plate" cleavage, it would definitely be a minimizer. Looking down at my cleavage is just this strange "where did everything go?" feeling. I did try it on with a shirt, just to see, and the lace detail at the top of the cup is actually less noticeable than you'd expect. I could possibly get away with wearing this as a regular bra with the right shirt. One little detail that I never saw in the photos or read in any reviews was the gore - I've never seen one like this. The gore actually comes up higher than the cups; the gore comes up into my cleavage and then drops about 1/4" to where the cup starts. I'll try to get a picture. It's kind of neat, doesn't bother me at all.
As for fit issues, it's definitely too shallow. I have wrinkling all the way along the wire. And the wires are too wide. And it's a big stretched out mess. BUT SO COMFORTABLE. The cups are shockingly just right; I don't know if this is some feat of engineering or what, but the edges of the cups don't gap or quad, they're just right.
This bra is all "Lisa Frank burlesque show" to observers but feels like loungewear. I feel like it appears to be a better fit than it actually is, unless you know what to look for. Read more 287 more words
This bra has not fit very well recently. It seems to have too much gaping on the bottom of the cups and since my breast are full and heavy on top it just folds the cups outward. Very pretty bra though. i wish it worked better for me but it just doesn't.
I love this bra. The ruffling at the top might be getting added to all my bras that have a tiny bit of quad boob. If it didn't have this, I wouldn't love the bra so much- but because of it my boobs look awesome- most other bras don't give the cleavage I want or have too much spillage. More for the hubby, as the ruffles and ribbons so under some shirts, and all my tanks- wish it came in white or nude without contrasting ribbon so I could wear under lighter colored shirts
