Cate in the guava colorway is bright and festive. It is not ornate, but pretty enough and quite comfortable. I personally don't like the shape it gives, though.
Cate has smooth, satiny bottoms with non-stretch lace uppers with a pattern of tall arches. The gore is a breathable mesh. The straps are ridged on the top surface, felted below. They are fully adjustable, but keep in mind that when tightened, the ridges on the top wrap around to the bottom, which may be uncomfortable if you have sensitivities. The cup of the cups is more triangular on top, giving quite full coverage. Cate also appears to have more fabric in the upper cup than some other models, leading to a lower apex. On me, this leads to a cone shape that I can certainly do without. Cate also is wider in the cup and gives a wider profile than the Morgan or Kim.

I previously tried the 36J - Cleo » Hettie Balconnet Bra (9011), and was somewhat horrified by how pointy it was. I thought maybe if I sized down in the cup it would pull things in a little. It did... a little. I am learning that my breasts are so projected and so soft that they will just expand forward into all the depth any cup will offer. They would be happy to go straight out for six inches, it would seem. A smaller cup corrals them a little and forces them to take a nicer shape. But in this case, not enough. The cups seem to fit, but maybe I could go even smaller. Just no real reason to do it, since I have Panache Jasmine and Thea that already work much better for me.

This bra is made for projection everywhere, it seems. I've got pretty even vertical fullness, and I filled out the bottom, but it was just slightly loose on the top cups. The issue I had with this one was scratchiness. It was scratchy on top of the shoulders, under the band where the material curled kept wanting to curl under, and especially near the armpits, where the material bunched up. The mesh of the cups was not the softest, either, and the material was sheer. Maybe because the cups were so large, it didn't lift me up much and let me fall out to the sides more than I like. I could try down a cup size, but I probably will just send it back.
