I ordered this bra because I was looking for something to give that super-uplifted, rounded cleavage that is great for scoop neck and other similar low-cut tops. I got basic black because most of my nicer tops are black or other darker colors, so if it peeked through, it wouldn't be a big deal. I like the shape of the Curvy Kate Tease Me, but I have yet to get it in the correct size, so I was hoping the Rhea would be the answer to my prayers.
I read many reviews saying the band was very firm and tight, so I ordered a 34. ... I should have gotten a 32, as I was able to wear it on the tightest hook immediately.
*Lovely materials....the bra itself is gorgeous
*The straps are not fully adjustable. I'm 5'4", so I usually need to adjust my straps quite a bit. I had to adjust these as far as they would go, and it still didn't seem enough.
*The cups are too tall. My breasts are very bottom heavy and soft, and even though these cups are supposed to lift everything up quite a bit, I felt the cup material was hiding all of the cleavage I wanted to be shown! The Curvy Kate Tease Me cups are slightly lower, which I think works better for me.
*Only 2 hooks, which doesn't feel supportive enough for me. I think the lack of hooks and the fact that the straps aren't fully adjustable makes this bra a deal-breaker. CK Tease Me has 3 hooks and fully adjustable straps.
I think I will return the bra and keep on searching for a Tease Me or other half cup bra to suit my needs.
