This is the only bra I've found that fits and supports while being comfortable. The center stay fits firmly against my breastbone like it should and the underwires don't dig into my armpits. The bra gives me nice, central, rounded support. I would give it 5 stars if the styling were a little better... the seam and the contrasting piping tend to show through clothes at times. I wish they made a t-shirt bra that was just like this! Jennifer from Jacksonville, FL

Wore this today for the first time and I love it. Great support, great shape, comfortable, and so much cuter than my usual bras (I almost always buy boring nude colors so they don't show under clothes, but this has the cute white details on the nude color - love it). I'm usually borderline between 38D and 38DD, and the 38DD in this bra fits perfectly. I did have to do the "bend forward and settle the girls into the cups" technique this morning to get it to fit right -- but that makes all bras fit better! Mimi from Montgomery, MD

I am sooo fond of this brand, and especially this bra. The seams don't print through my clothing, and the nude is light enough to blend in with my skin tone. Excellent support and shape. I was only mildly irritated by the white trim that sometimes shows through, but seriously, not even enough to knock off a star. I will buy more of these, definitely. Jordan from Rapid City, SD

Runs a little small. Not the most comfortable bra, but so far better than anything I've tried. The worst part is that its now day 3 of breaking in and while the band is less stiff and more comfortable, the wire at the end of the cup under the arms is digging into my side. Keeping it because I have no other choice at this point.

Curvy Kate Response: As per Tomima's Tip, we suggest that the cups are running a cup size small. So, size up one cup size. KTara from New York

Took me a few exchanges to figure out my size, but finally zeroed in on it, and I just love this bra. Super comfortable all day, great support, gives the girls a nice rounded shape. Other reviews noted the straps fall a bit wide, and the straps peek out from tanks and sleeveless shirts, could be a problem if you have narrow shoulders, but not for me.

I don't know why I think I can wear a balconette bra. Every time I try I realize that balconettes are NOT made for big, nature-made boobs! Aside from the general styling issues, which are mine, personally, not necessarily yours, the overall fit was too small. Too tight in the band width and generally uncomfortable. Curvy Kate certainly has some scrumptious looking bras, perhaps a different size would be better suited. I normally wear a 34F. My under breast measurement is really 33 and I wear my band on the tightest setting, but in this one, I would recommend trying a band larger than normal.

Curvy Kate Response: As per Tomima's Tip, we suggest that the cups are running a cup size small. So, size up one cup size. Also, make sure to hook your bra on the last hook for a better fit. yogigrrl72

Very comfortable and very cute. I especially like how it gives a smooth profile yet still has the multi-cup construction I need for support. J from WV, USA

I have always gotten quality garments from this company. The return policy is great as well. I am thrilled with this particular bra. It is comfortable and gives the right amount of coverage to wear with a tee-shirt and not show. Gretchen from Athens, Georgia

Bought this item in white. I love this bra because 1) it's so hard to find a good bra in my size...I'm very busty, 2) it's even harder to find a bra my size in WHITE! I'm giving this bra only 4 stars because it became progressively more uncomfortable as the day went on, however, I do love this bra and it goes well under many of my shirts. I would recommend this bra to others. Brandi from Illinois

First off, I LOVE the wide set straps! They make ALL the difference, in my opinion (no digging into my shoulders, as other non-padded, thinner straps do). The band is wide enough to feel secure, and stretchy enough to move with me.This bra fits and holds my very full cups up so well, it takes lbs off my frame, and years off of my posture. I will definitely order another. I also love the low/deep plunge stance of the front V. Christine from NJ

This was my first experience buying a Curvy Kate bra. I usually wear either a 34F or a 34FF depending on the brand, so seeing the reviews, I went with the 34FF. It was way too small, so I exchanged it for a 34G. I just got that in the mail, and it's still too small. It has now been a month since I originally ordered the bra, so I'm not sure if it's worth paying for return shipping for a second time and waiting another 3 weeks. I really want to love this bra. It's super soft, comfy, and has enough padding to keep anything from poking out, but the sizing is a little ridiculous. Katie from MA

Breasts are "bulging" out over the top of my bra cups, and I don't think going up a cup size its going to fix the problem. The cut is too low. Luna

This is my new favorite bra! It's a great everyday bra. It offers the right level of support for a larger chest because of the three piece cup. The straps are wide enough that they don't really cut into your shoulders (if they do you probably need a smaller band size). I like the lining because it offers modesty without adding bulk. If I could change anything I would make the band a little bit wider. I also wish they would get rid of the white trim on the nude bra as it is very noticeable under light colored clothing.

My first two bras in this style fit beautifully. Very supportive and comfortable. My third and newest one fits but not as well. Maybe because it's so new or I lost a bit of weight without realizing it. Either way, still wonderful bras, especially for larger breasted, active women. Toni from PA

I've been using the same brand for a while and wanted to branch out. I liked the fabric of this bra and it seemed well-made. It fits true-to-size and covered well. However, because the bra is not fully molded, the overall shape followed the way my chest is going these days, which is downward, rather than the round supported look I tend to go for. The bra itself seems like a good bra, it just didn't provide me the particular look I prefer. Leann from Austin, TX

Wonderful, comfortable bra. A tiny bit big in the cups but that's because I measure between a 30FF and a 30G. Toni from Northeast PA

Very nice bra. It seems to be well constructed and made of quality products and materials. I ordered it in my normal 38F (D4). While the band size was spot on, the cups were not. The cups seem to run small and I ended up with the dreaded "quadruple boob". Not the look I was going for. Susan from Summerville, SC

I am pretty desperate to find a nice padded bra in larger sizes. When I saw this one, I decided to try it despite previous bad luck with the Curvy Kate brand. On me, the cups actually run 2 sizes too small, and the underwire between my breasts creaked terribly. The fabric under my arms also chafed very badly. I am going to exchange it for a larger cup size and hope that solves the creaking and chafing issues. Kat from USA

Comfortable, true to size and pretty. Great for shirts with low cleavage. I'd prefer the beige bra didn't have white piping for trim and that it was one color, I feel like I can't wear it with a lot of t-shirts because the white piping shows through (there's enough attention there, I don't need anything else to point out what's obvious).
