I love this bra in every way except that I think I need a 34G instead of GG. Although Curvy Kate is known for stretchy bands, it seems that in recent years they have gotten less stretchy. Their cup sizing used to run small, and it appears that it runs more true to size now.
I have also lost weight (& thus breast volume) and gotten fitter, so it seems my ribcage has gotten more muscular & thus thicker.
For me, the vertical seams provide such nice support and a rounded shape. I feel quite secure in this bra, and it's really pretty, too! This G cup is juuuuust on the edge of being too small, but it works for most days.
This is a pretty bra, but it's a push-up bra with no immediate depth at the wire. My breast shape is projected, soft tissue, narrow root, even, with centre fullness. It doesn't look too bad in the photos, but it feels like this bra pushes my soft squishy boobs up towards my chin. The center gore doesn't tack but sits pretty far off my sternum and rests on my centre breast tissue.
This bra is very good quality and it's very cute. The cups are two separate pieces. The inner piece is foam with two vertical seams. The outer piece is a very pretty decorative flower lace. The lace is soft rather than scratchy. The straps are wide and fully adjustable. The band is a sheer mesh. However, this particular size does not fit me. For me, the band was much too tight and the center gore dug into my chest. The gore didn't tack; I could fit my finger between it and my chest. The wires dug in under my breasts but I believe that is because of the band. I will do another review when I exchange this bra for one that fits.
This is a very strange bra. The outer layer is seamed like a balconette but the inner layer is a 3-piece half cup. I'm not sure what the purpose of doing that was. It spreads out and flattens my breasts against my chest wall and also sits very low. It does feel very comfortable, but the shape is very bad. This is definitely an attempt at a bra to give cakes-on-a-plate cleavage but it doesn't give me much. This is probably the least projected my boobs have ever looked in a seamed bra. Perhaps if you want a sexy minimizer this one is for you.
