I've heard Flirtelle is made by Curvy Kate and this bra looked to be the same cut as my beloved Arizona so I decided to give it a try. Since I found the the band to loosen quickly on my 34HH Arizona I went with 32J for this bra. The bra is the same cut and the band materials look to be the same. It did loosen quickly but the wire under my right breast can be uncomfortable sometimes. That is a problem area for me for I have pain there sometimes so for me I'll stick with 34's in the future. For others you might want to ... size down a band especially if you are in between bands. The padding on this is a nice soft padding the same as Arizona. I also have the CK Daily Dream and that padding is stiffer. I much prefer the softer padding of this bra as it provides a rounder shape and molds to the breast better. The lace at the top of the cup sticks out a little but it is very soft so it lays flat under clothes. I'm not crazy about the look of the lace at the top of the cup. However the bra does give a nice shape under clothes so thats more important. I'm very impressed with my first experience with Flirtelle. I'd say the sizing is consistent with Curvy Kate. These bras are so affordable too even with shipping to the US. I've actually just ordered 3 more Flirtelle padded styles (34HH) that just came out for a great price. The colors and style are more to my liking too. I'm so glad to finally have padded bra options.

Appearance and Construction:
The construction seems passable. The bra is made from a smooth polyamide, nylon mesh which stretches over the thinly padded cups in the front. The inside is a contoured, lightly-seamed foam that is not uncomfortable.
The underwires are thin and are medium width- not "U" shaped, but not wide, either.
Both the band and wires have give that allows them to stretch under moderate force.
The straps are made of shiny, ruched elastic with a satin weave and are quite stretchy. The width of the straps is very thin. Each strap has a single, narrow slider which is difficult to adjust.
The closure has 3 ... columns with 3 eyes each.
The band was much too small for me and I was unable to complete the closure. Despite the amount of stretch, I feel that an extender would not make a substantial difference in the fit.
Because the cup depth is shallow, it does not allow my projected breast shape enough room, and I spill out over the top of the cups.
While the gore is thin, my breasts are closely set and it does not separate them adequately enough.
The thin straps are quite wide set, and press into the furthest reaches of my (narrow) shoulders.
I feel like different sizing would be appropriate. I will be returning this bra.
