My first issue was that the size chart for this brand said I was a different size than what ended up fitting. The first day with the correct size, it was quite uncomfortable. There's a thick seam further back on the band from where the wire ends. It kept pinching and poking me. After breaking it for a couple days, now it's great. My advice, go up a band and cup size because their chart is wrong. EAL from New York, NY, USA

It is a very pretty bra; unfortunately the low plunge did not contain me whenever I bent over. The cup size seemed smaller than the Fantasie brand I've been buying.. Nancy from Aliso Viejo, CA

LOVE this bra. I've been wearing a 32DDD from Victorias Secret and because it was too small, my breasts were actually hurting pretty bad. A day after wearing this and it completely went away. I should be in a 32E, but since the note at the bottom said to go up a cup size, I got the 32F and its perfect. It covers my entire breast (even the side boob wrinkles by my arms!!). The stitching is a little rougher than other bras I've had so if you have sensitive skin-this may not be for you. Otherwise, it's an awesome and comfortable bra and pretty cute :) Emily B from Connecticut

It is cute and sexy in a subtly way by having the animal print that is very close to the background color. It also covers and supports for larger bust sizes. It is a bra that can be used by women with smaller breasts and women with larger breasts. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Finding bras that are less expensive and fit me is quite a challenge. As a young professional I often struggle with finding suitable bras for work and play. Heroom has a wide variety, especially in my size. This bra allows for work and play. I can easily take it form the office, to happy hour with clients and feel confident about it, instead of self conscious. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Great smooth t-shirt bra. It has a low gore, which gives great cleavage . It is seamless under tops. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I struggle with molded cups and this is not an exception. I have some gaping towards the top of the cup near the bra strap and some of my center fullness seems to be pushing out the shape of the cup into an odd shape.

Curvy Kate Response: With a molded cup, if you are shallow, you may encounter gaping at the top of the cup. You should consider sizing down in bras with a molded cup. KP from California

This bra is so pretty that the photos do not do it justice. The cups have a nice, rounded shape and the under wires are close set in the front. I loved the bra and I thought the wider band was comfortable and supportive. Stacye from East Grand Forks, MN

This bra fit great! After wearing it for a while, the cups lipped/protruded outward at the seams between the breasts and looked horrible under t-shirts because it was visible underneath all blouses. Carol from Jacksonville, FL

This bra is a great everyday t-shirt bra! I am a 32D in Wacoal and the 32D in this bra fit perfectly. It is very comfortable and seems to be very well made! Hannah from Dallas, TX

I somehow miss the note that said this bra runs small in the cup size and because it's discontinued I can't exchange it. HOWEVER, I fixed the issue of it being too small with a bra band extender. I usually wear a 30FF or its sister size 32F, and found that this solved the problem by making it more of a 32FF. It still doesn't fit "perfectly" but it is much more "accommodating" now, if you know what I mean. The center still doesn't touch my sternum but I feel like I can breathe regularly now. Just wanted to share my tip if this happened to anyone else! Very pretty bra! McKenna from Hayward, CA

This is a very pretty bra, but it had really full cups for a balconette. It was basically a full-coverage bra on me, which does not fit me correctly, as any sort of top movement creates gaps at the top of my breasts and looks very unnatural under clothing. There was nothing wrong with the bra itself, it was just the wrong cut for me. Lia from Garner, NC USA

While I find that most Curvy Kate bras fit a bit snugger than other brands for my universal size and that is typically okay, this one is almost too uncomfortable. The fabric used for the band is rough and I am aware of the bra at all times. The straps, while they stay put, have enough decoration on the edges that they are also a bit rough. The shape it gives is alright, but I have preferred other Curvy Kate bras more. Ginger from Oklahoma USA

I love this bra! I am 5'5'' and weigh 160. I have been in between a 32 and 34 for a few months. I am really glad I went with the 32. It is snug, but not painful. I fill the cups completely, my right breast is a little larger and puffs up out of the cup slightly, but I always wear camis under my shirts, so that hasn't been a problem. This is the perfect simple black bra that makes you feel a little special. This was my first Curvy Kate, and it will not be my last. Hannah from Chicago/IL/USA

I am short with very full breasts and need a lot of support . I initially tried my usual size, 36FF, but the cups were way too small and the center didn't come close to touching my chest. The band felt just right and quite supportive with three rows of hooks. I moved up to the 36G and whoa - it's comically huge. Still supportive, though, to the point where I'm spilling over the top, even while there are huge gaps in the sides of the cups where I don't even come close to filling them. Not sure who this bra is made for, but it definitely isn't me. Sherri from NC

I never review anything, but I had to review this bra! I love it!! And that means a lot for me. I usually walk away without buying anything, and typically in tears. It's always hit and miss when I order online and there is always atleast one this to complain about, but when I received this bra and put it on I was instantly in love! It fits so well and looks great under a t-shirt. It is comfortable and adjusts all the way to the front for my short shoulders. The only complaint I have is how high it hits under the armpit. It irritated me to begin with, but now that I am used to it, I don't notice it. I would definitely recommend this bra! Ashlee from MIDVALE

Great bra! I have been bra shopping online for a month now, a few returns. Been pretty unhappy. Came to this site, decided on this bra, worked right away! It's molded and firm which I wanted but not hard and chunky, which is nice. It's not pointy. Fits great on my rib cage. Smooth under shirts, and nice cleavage. It's sooo hard to find a nice 34 E bra that isn't flimsy and this one does the job :) I shall shop Curvy Kate and this website from now on! Lauren from Colorado

This is my favorite bra (so far). Gives me a nice shape without being too pointy and actually aims my breasts forward instead of to the sides. It doesn't show under my clothes at all. Katelin from Ohio

I LOVE THIS! This is the first bra I have tried that doesn't hurt my prominent rib cage. It is so comfortable and actually provides me with lift! It also makes my uneven chest look even. LOVE IT! Krista

While it is beautifully made, it has a poor fit. Even with universal sizing, I felt like the cups were still too small and it did not have enough built in support. It definitely could not be an all day type of bra. Maybe I have gone up a cup size?

Curvy Kate Response: We are sorry to hear about your difficulty with fitting CK2401. Unfortunately we do not make a larger cup size than a 34H in this style, however we could recommend that you try Curvy Kate Daily Boost Balconette Bra CK1801 Dianne from NC, USA
