I tried this on in a shop so don't have measurements or photos, but think it actually fitted. Went up one cup size from usual 28ff, and at first though 28g was still a bit small, but I think it is just because I am not used to this much cleavage, but i wasn't really falling out of it and wasn't quad boob, just quite a low cut bra. Inspite of being very low and creating lots of cleavage it still felt really comfy and supportive. However, having finally found something that fits, the style is just so not me! I am quite a conservative person, so just don't think red and leopard print plunge is really something i could wear! Was very compfy bra though, and for others wanting something sexy but still supportive and stylish (not completely trashy!) I would recommend it.
I got this bra in a swap from littlegirllies, and it's amazing. It's comfortable, pretty, and it fits. I think this could easily become my new favorite bra (although I have 2 Elomis ordered and on the way, so don't hold me to that.)
The only issue I've seen so far, is that even though the bottom of the cup is filled out, it still wrinkles. If I press on the bottom of the cup with my thumb, there's a spot about 3/4" above the underwire in the center of the cup that refuses to budge. Whenever I put pressure on it, it seems to want to fold in rather than fill out. So that seems like a design issue, but definitely not a dealbreaker!
The pink on the bra is a deep raspberry colour, it's very pretty. The materials are very soft, and despite the shallow shape, the bra doesn't collapse at the bottom of the cup. I really like the very low gore, especially in this size.
This bra was too small and too shallow for me from the beginning, so I've only worn it a few times and it's been sitting in my drawer for a while now. I cut the label out, though, I don't remember exactly but I think it was scratchy. I did keep the bra's bag, so I'm sure about the size. The colour bled a bit on the ribbon on the strap and there is slight coloration on the wing as well.
Contrary to what everyone else has been saying about Curvy Kate plunge styles, this bra actually runs true to size! I usually wear a 28DD and I ordered a 28E because everybody on the internet has been saying that it runs small. The 28E is slightly too big. I gapes at the top if I bend forward. The wires are just slightly too wide, however, this is preferable to having too narrow wires. The band is the right size.
This is a lovely bra-I'm not usually a leopard print gal, but it's really pretty, and I got it for a steal on eBay. I had read the shape was similar to Curvy Kate's Tempt Me, and since my 28HH in that one was a touch small in the cups and my tissue couldn't get to the bottom due to lack of space there, I got the 28J. I fill it much more perfectly, so that part worked. The leopard mesh seems a little looser than the smooth cup, though, and wrinkles even with the cup filled-maybe a defect on mine, not sure. The only problem is, when ...I won this bra a month ago, I didn't know how narrow and semi projected by breasts were, and this bra is definitely too wide and shallow for my shape. Also, because my root starts high on my chest and I have a short torso, the sides come up a bit too high, although I kind of expected this, since all my bras seem to do this. The straps are also too wide set for my narrow shoulders and frame. HOWEVER, it does give nice cleavage, and is a decently sexy bedroom/low cut top bra, so I'll probably keep it until I can afford some Comexim bras or something similar. My only issue with the design is that, under smooth tops, the lace is bulky and shows through, but most of the time, that won't matter. If you are the right shape, this bra is definitely a winner-sexy to the max and just a bit edgy. The band feels relatively snug for Curvy Kate, although I have a feeling it will stretch out and end up too big if I wear it too often, although since it's more of a special occasion bra, that probably won't happen as quickly.

This bra is so adorable but probably the strangest bra I own. The material does not have any business being molded into the cups of a bra. It folds inside-out and it's just....weird. Foamy and weak? I can't explain it. But anyway, that isn't very important.
The bra is very spread open on top so it is easy to fall out if you're in the wrong size. The band seems slightly tighter than necessary but I haven't worn it too often so maybe it will weaken a bit. I may suggest it to a 26-band wearer. MAAAYBE.
Cups are very weak and thick, as mentioned. Of course, this bra shows ...under clothes. However, it is cute...and cute is impractical 90% of the time. The cups are shallow, as the other styles similar to this bra are. You will likely get a wrinkle at the bottom.
Center gore is nice and low. Great for close set boobs.
Gives ~ok cleavage. Why not "good?" Because the material is super weak and the cups are cut so wide on top and center that there isn't anything really pushing you up in in the middle. You just hang there, exposed and that's your cleavage.
I probably could have used a 28E because I don't fill out the bottom of the cups and the underwire seems to far from my lower tissue, but I took the advice of sizing up a cup. Straps are very comfortable and soft. Band is strong. Read more 133 more words
There is about an inch gap along the bottom of cup that I can't fill and a gap along the sides where the wire is too wide. There isn't any gaping on the top though, so I'm not sure if going down a cup size would help. I also am not sure if the cup folding at the bottom means the band is too tight, or if it just "orange in glass" from the cup being the wrong shape for my projection.
I ended up sending this bra back, because although i believe this to be the closest to my "correct" size in the showgirl line, it still felt wrong and more unflattering than the 34e tempt me i have which feels a cup size too small and a band size too large. Ive heard that the wild is supposed to have the same cut as the tempt me, so im basing my comparison of the two of them on that.
The band on this closed on the last hook, but it felt painful and cutting. Perhaps it would have stretched after a while, seeing as the general consensus is they ...do, but then i feel like it would be back in the territory of too stretchy to support. I'm thinking it more of an issue with the particular material its made of, that it either gives a ton or fits technically correct but irritates. Im am confused then, as to what band size i should get, as the 34 needs to be on the tightest hook for me to wear it.
The cup feels like it's wide enough to contain my breast tissue on the sides (unlike the 34e i have, which definitely cuts in after a while), but i don't actually get much cleavage and seem to have to re adjust more often. I also get some gaping at the top outer corners. I wonder if it's because the cup has more room and doesn't press my chest and hold it back like the smaller one, so it leaves room for movement and settling. Of course, this means that from the side it do get a good shape, and not the minimized one that i get in the smaller cup (from it pressing back). So, in the right cup size, this is actually wrong for my shallow, wide set, bottom heavy shape. weh
Style wise this isn't really my bag, I'm not a fan of animal print. I do feel it keeps from looking trashy, because it's a sheer print over a deeper scarlet, not a bright red. I also love that its paired with a rich creme-gold, as opposed to black, it's more elegant and less boudoir. if it were just those two and no animal print, i would have probably liked it more. I especially love the bow details and how the satiny red fabric continues onto the wing before becoming the red mesh of the band.
If you can fit these bras, i would say go for it because they are pretty well made and when they fit, comfortable. Read more 325 more words
