    32JJ

    Didn't fit

    Very Pretty bra! I love the red color and the polka dots! 32JJ is the best size for me in the bra. The band fits a bit small for the size, but I like that since I'm between a 30 and a 32 band. I don't like that the wires are once again to wide for me on this bra. It does not fit correctly. I find that the cups are taller than on the average CK bra but not as tall as on the Victory (tallest CK bra). The Problem is as always the same: that the CK bras offer lots of space at the sides but ... not enough at the center where I need it the most. The gore does not lie flat and I think that breast tissue would escape from the cups during the day. It also does not feel as supportive as other bras in the same size range from Bravissimo or even Ewa Michalak. I recommend CK bras if you are compatible with the shape they offer (short, wide rather shallow cups) and only then I think that the bra would be supportive enough in the + J cup range. It is not for me sadly.

    • Have you considered bending the wires to make the cups narrower and deeper?

    I really love the look of this Curvy Kate Balconette and wanted to love it but the fit is just not a match for me. I need WAY more immediate projection, so it should be good for someone more shallow. And that might bring the seams up enough to cover someone's nipples, too, just not mine. The quadboob + wrinkling was also surprising for me. So this one just isn't for me.

    My shape: close set, center full, full on bottom, average/narrow width roots, tall shallow roots, semi soft tissue.

    I love the way this bra looks, love the polka dot design and the criss-cross detail at the gore. I am super bummed this bra doesn't fit at all.

    First of all, I really need to remeasure myself since it's been a while, but I don't think sizing down in this style would work. The cups are a bit closed off on top, they curve inward a little too much for me and cut into my tall shallow roots. So I still get a quad boob effect even though the cups ... are too big for me. I can't fill them out at all. There's too much space at the apex for me and I get a bullet type shape (could just be because it's too big). There's lots of space on the sides, but not enough in the middle.

    The band is okay on first and second set of hooks, but even with little bit of stretch the cups and wires distort so much! Not sure if this is a manufacturing defect or not, my other Curvy Kate bras don't have wires like this. Although this is a 32" band size, it did not stretch to this at all. It stretches to just over 30" okay.

    Overall, big disappointment, too big, too closed off on top, hated the shape, so this is going back.

      All my CK bras have fit issues... I have tall roots and soft tissue and tops of the cups always cut in. Shape varies from 'ok' to 'upside down 7'. I wonder if their padded balconies would fit me but I gave up on their unpadded styles

    • 1

      I totally get what your saying! While I love the fit of the Ellace on me, it's definitely not as uplifted and round as my Ewa Michalak bras for instance, they're sort of magic, lol :D I haven't tried their padded bras either, only a few unlined styles.

    Not a fan of the white and the polka dots are embroidered so I think they would show through a shirt. Its got these plastic bits on the front of the straps, I honestly don't understand why they're there at all. The gore has a cut out area and when I sit some fat pops out, not so much that I would how through a shirt or anything but I don't get the point of it and I think if I wore the bra for long enough it would start hurting. There's nothing explicitly wrong with this bra but I feel like its not great quality.

    30DD

    This bra both looks nice on my anatomy, & in the way it's designed. A rather modern yet playfully retro daily piece.
    From looks alone, one would think it better than others I've altered from very different sizes than my bra size, yet feels absolutely horrible in pretty much every way. Everything I'd seen from this style on others prior to purchase, made it seem that my wide short roots would have been a match in heaven here-yet starting to think this style is not for anyone's shape at all?

    Oversized, yet stingy and cramped. Top Spot does not lift, it flattens everything in ... it's path.

    While the band and straps are loosened, it still digs, cuts, binds and slices it's miserable way though my underbust. It stabs my sternum, pinches upper bust as it's too narrow diagonally, then cup crinkles down from being too tall which itches around areola, and even binds in around armpits.
    Tightening the straps altered the appearance, mainly by increasing vertical indentation from stress lines on the sides, instead of the usual wrinkles & complete flattening of the lower cup horizontally (not sure why raising the cup half an inch does this).

    So far the only thing worse I've ever worn is the Cleo Piper, which probably left me with bone bruises. The pain lasted over a month from only trying it on a moment. Still Top Spot is very cute, and I can't help but try it from time to time hoping I've lost some weight and maybe this time it will work.

    Nope!

    The bra fits in that the cups contain my boobs quite well, and they don't cut into breast tissue. It looks really good from the front, but when you look from the side, it makes my boobs look weirdly pointy. Adjusting the straps squish the breasts and worsens the shape. Unfortunately, the bra makes my boobs look incredibly small.
    The band size is nice and snug and the underwires don't dig into the ribcage.

    The spot pattern and mesh look very pretty and sexy, so I'm going to keep the bra and see how I can work with the shape it gives me.

    Edit: Trying this bra one more time and I figured out why it makes my boobs look weird.
    Adjusting the straps short enough so they don't fall of my shoulders pushes the tissue so much into the center of my frame that it looks off. I have very wide-set boobs, which is a shape I am used to. Seeing my girls in the middle of my chest just looks unusual.

    I am so, so sad that this didn't fit! The side sweeps down which prevents that discomfort you can get around the armpit when you have a smaller back size and big boobs. The edging at the bottom of the band does flap up if you slouch, but other than that it is such a beautiful bra.

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    The Curvy Kate Top Spot was a random style I came across on Amazon, and the positive reviews encouraged me to give it a try. I also thought that the sporty look was rather unique and different from the rest of my collection. I ordered my normal Curvy Kate size of 30DD since their 28 bands are super tight, and found that while the band worked well, the cups were far too deep and tall for me.

    The band is firm and snug, and could easily be mistaken for a 28 in another brand. It is very comfortable on me, I felt that the wide shadow ... elastic at the bottom of the band added to this supportive feel, as the wings are not particularly wide and are made from standard firm powermesh. The cradle is made from stretch matte interlock with a crossover keyhole design at the center gore which adds some interest. The rest of the trims are simple, with a plain, fully adjustable elastic strap, and leotard back. There are no bows or other trims on this style. Both the band and cradle were well made and comfortable on me. I only wish that the cups had worked out as well!

    Unfortunately, the cups run very tall and very deep on me. It's really hard for me to tell what size to try in Curvy Kate, as Lifestyle ran incredibly shallow, Florence runs somewhere between shallow and TTS, Ellace is TTS but FOT, Princess Plunge is TTS, and Princess Balcony is very deep. This is very comparable to Princess Balcony, which is far too deep for me in my normal 30DD. I can tell from the cup shape that the upper cup is rather shelf-like and set rather horizontally onto the bottom cup, which indicates this is for FOT styles. The bottom cup is double layer mesh with polka dot embroidery, similar to Cleo Marcie. The upper cup is single layer polka dot mesh with the same shadow elastic used on the bottom band. It has a nice amount of give and is not terribly tight, so I think it will be fairly flexible for tall roots, but the main issue is making sure you fit the shape of the upper cup .

    The other recurring problem with Curvy Kate bras is that the wire is much shorter than I like at the outer cup. While it's not entirely short enough for tissue to escape out the sides, it just doesn't feel that secure to me. I don't like bras where the wire length is shorter than the cup depth, but unfortunately many CK bras are designed with these proportions.

    Top Spot is a cute style for those who like lightweight mesh bras like Marcie, but need more projection and taller cups, and don't mind shorter wires at the sides. It's a nice bra but unfortunately didn't suit me.

    Obviously much too small. Hard to tell what the fit should be like.
