Don't know yet about durability, but this is the BEST combination of mildly sexy and supportive for larger sizes! perfect band fit, good grip not too loose, support where it should be. A word about Curvy Kate... Just discovered recently the cup sizes run small compared to some other brands. I wear anywhere from 34DDD (Lilyette - tends to run large) but often 34F. Needed to buy 34FF for a good fit. If the fit is off try a cup size up. Anonymous from Antioch, CA

Help... I really love Curvy Kate but need a bra that will fit. I love the demi and balconette styles... but I am a different size in different brands. How do I know what size I will be? I bought another Curvy Kate bra - it looks great but, as with most demis or balconettes, after about 10 minutes my breasts start getting squeezed out the top so I look like I have 4 breasts within an hour or so. Perfect fit at first 10 minutes! Is it the style, size, or what? Help! I need to make a purchase soon!

Curvy Kate Response: It sounds like you could do with going up a cup size - possibly up to a 34FF. One way to help with finding a bra that will fit, I suggest you take advantage of Herroom's Know Your Breast bra finder and when you figure that out, plug it in to their Universal Cup Size to see how your bra size would carry over brand to brand.

This bra is so. cute. It's also comfortable and the fit was spot on. However, it gave me major torpedo boobs...and made me very sad. It has to go back.

Curvy Kate Response: We are sorry to hear that you had an issue with the shaping of this style - usually feedback like this normally indicates that perhaps you would need to go down a back size and up a cup size - to give your breasts the support on the under band they need to be lifted up onto the chest wall. Alternatively, you could try the Daily Boost Balconette Bra CK1801 - the foam lining of this bra gives great support and shaping. Rachel

Pretty bra, but too small of cup and not enough support for size 36DDD! Sent this back.

Curvy Kate Response: Perhaps the Curvy Kate Gia Balconette Bra CK2101 would work better as they both have a lower 1/2 cup that is 100% laminated polyester thus very supportive. Diana from VA

I cannot seem to find anything Demi in my size. Any suggestions?

Curvy Kate Response: Check out the bras in the Princess, Emily, Romace, Gia and Portia collections. They are all made in your size. Tam from Hesperia, Ca

Everything about this bra was wonderful...until I tried it on. The size was correct as the cup and band fit perfectly. But, the bra was so far into my armpit it left indentations for hours after trying it on. Are Curvy Kate bras not meant for short women?? The top/side part of the cup that comes down was so ridiculously uncomfortable that putting my arms down by my sides was near to impossible. I love all of the styles and I really want to give CK my business. I plan to try one other style, the CK1801. I really hope it fits better.

HerRoom Response: Being petite, you need to be careful to select bras with shorter underwires. Demi bra choices will work best for you. Tam from Hesperia, Ca

The cup fit so well but the band was a little tight. It still fits but next time I will get next next size up for the band. I love it anyway! Maddy from Il, USA
