I got this bra to try to figure out my size and shape, since it was just the cost of shipping. The band is very tight on me. The straps are wide and comfortable, and I notice no gaping on the cups and fill them properly. I'm ambivalent on the decorations/colouring, and removed the teal ruffles and bows from it so that I could wear it under regular clothes. With the original decorations, it takes two tight layers to cover the lines.
After wearing it for a day, though, it became extremely uncomfortable and felt overly tight.
Fit as expected. Band runs loose, with the tighter elastic along the band, which can be painful if its tight. Cups run about 1 cup size too small. I've had several of these, in different colors and sizes. This peach and purple isn't the prettiest of the colors, but since these are discontinued, I really wanted one in a size close to mine. For me, these cups fit better than the newer Tease. The gore is very wide though, and that causes fit issues for me.
As many have said, the band is very stretchy and I'm immediately on the tightest hooks. I'm very broad shouldered and even I wish the straps were a little closer together but I can live with it as is. I get very slight gapping right by my armpits when I sit. I wear nothing but but form fitting tee's and the ruffles show but overall I do like this bra, it gives a nicoverall. I think i'm going to remove the frilly ruffle so it wont show so much under my tops
This is a fuchsia/orange colourway, the older model and fit. I read that the older ones run big in the cups and it is true. I have gaping in the upper cups. I think it can be corrected by shortening the satin ribbon.
I have the newer Thrill me bra in wine/navy (32E, sister size to 28FF) and its cups are a little bit too small for me. And this fuchsia/orange has cups too big in 28F!! I find the older bra fits more than 1 cup size bigger, I´d give it 1,5-2 cup sizes. It is very open + too big in the top. However, I altered ...it. I tightened the thread at the top and it reduced the cup volume about enough.
Other than that the bra fits well. Wires are wide enough, band is good on my 26 underbust, straps fully adjustable, and no poking anywhere. It fits fairly well on my shallow boobs.
ETA. I have realised that the wires are NOT wide enough https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> They cut in at the sides. This happens to me with all CK bras, bummer https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 87 more words
Very pretty bra! It will suite shallow boobs very well. I have the Azure/Plum one I believe, which is one of the older colours and the wires are medium wide, and not too stiff. I decided to flip them in the underwire channels since they looked a bit funny and take in the gore. Now the bra is very comfortable, especially due to the interior of the cups, the band and the straps. It gives me quadboob but you can't really tell because of the frilly stuff, so I wouldn't personally size up but if you really like this bra and have deeper boobs... definitely size up.
Me: avg projection, even fullness, wide-set, wide-rooted
WOW I love this bra! I have average projection, so I thought this bra wouldn't work, but it totally does. I love the shape this bra gives me. It actually lifts up my bust. And I really like the modest hint of cleavage this bra gives. Plus, the soft padding of the cups is soooo comfortable.
The detailing is also wonderful, which is what I love most about Curvy Kate bras. It's all so intricate and beautiful.
NOTE: after receiving this, i bent the wires a bit to be narrower and deeper. measurements do NOT reflect this- they are the before bending measurements. however, the 'how it fits' was done AFTER, because i am just doing them now https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" /> so, sorry for the confusion!
firs things first: this bra definitely isnt a technically correct fit. the band it at least a size too big and has material that isnt flattering on flabby backs, the cups overspill by 1-2 sizes, the gore only tacks because i shoved the wires into the empty armpit space, and if i hadn't bent the wires ...they would've been too wide. but i LOVE this bra!
the thrill me and tease me are always so comfortable, even in the wrong size. and theyre gorgeous, so i keep them for 'fun' bras and not functional bras. the deep purple detail is lovely against the satiny pink, and i love the ruffle at the top. im aiming to eventually get this in a more correct size, but i hardly ever see them, so this i snagged even knowing it would be wrong. i probably need a 32 or 30 band, and at least 2 cup sizes up. right now, its a very bedroom bra look, but im okay with that https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 118 more words
Love this bra even though it doesn't technically fit me. My boobs don't even have a finger's worth of space between them, so the gore does dig in a bit, but it really isn't so bad/uncomfortable and is hardly noticeable for me. If I were to purchase this bra again, I would probably go up another cup size or two as I think I am a little too projected for this model. There's a good chunk of boob that's pushed up and out of the cup that would be very noticeable if not for the lacy trim. However, my boyfriend absolutely loves the massive cakes on a plate look this gives me, so I will definitely be holding onto it!
