I love this bra. It is well made, but has a unique fit. If you are full chested (tend to pop out even when you have your correct cup size) you need to go up a cup or 2 in this bra. The one I had of this style before seemed small in the band but the one I received now seems correct to size. Well constructed to give a good shape. Lace section is not irritating to skin. The wires on the in general are cut low, but especially on the outsides. This is important because while the cups fit accurately, the wires will not come up high on your breast bone, but sit in about the middle of the height of your cleavage (not the top of it). The outside of the wires sits very low compared to most bras, which is fine for me because then it's not poking my armpit. However, if you have a bit of fat under your armpits that will roll over the top of that wire, it does tend to hurt. I was very pleased with the straps as well because they are stretchy and sit wide on your shoulders (because it's a balconette bra) which is great for my frame and chest size. Curvy Kate in general makes some great bras! Chelsea from Rock Hill, SC

Very pretty bra, but really didn't work for me. It seemed to fit when I first put it on, but after wearing it for a few hours, I started having 'boob shift'. The top of the cup pressed in, and I had the 4-boob thing going on. Minimal support and underwire is flimsy. Dana from California

I have very heavy breasts and find that the mesh of this bra is not the most supportive option, but it is great under light clothes! KP from California

I really love this bra. It's comfortable and cute. The only problem I have found with it is that the color started fading in it really quickly. Structurally it is still a great bra though and now it works under lighter clothes. Hannah from Pearland

I really regret not ordering this bra sooner when more sizes were available. The 30FF I ordered was unfortunately too small in the cup. The beautiful stretch Lace along the top of the cup kept me from completely popping out, but caused a concave dip and upturned breast profile do to the size issue. I would have loved to exchange for a larger cup, but unfortunately the next sizes up were unavailable on HerRoom. Other than the size issue this bra was perfect. I normally would avoid unpadded seamed bras do to the torpedo shape they give me, but the color of this bra was too tempting to pass up and it didn't disappoint. The beautifully delicate blush pink managed to flatter my pale skin tone as well as be neutral enough to substitute for a nude bra. It did however seem to have a bit of a shimmery striped pattern in person vs. the opaque appearance in the picture. Surprisingly the fit was comfortable, supportive, and shapely even with the size issue managing to give me a more rounded shape except for the unfortunate profile. No sign of the torpedo shape I usually get. The sheer mesh and lace were Luxuriously soft and smooth without needing to be washed first. The band is wide enough to offer adequate support without being so wide as to take away from the delicate aesthetic of the bra. Having a 3 Hook closure on the F+ cup sizes is a plus. The straps are long and fully adjust to suit various heights, but are firm enough that I didn't have to cinch them up to the tops of my shoulders. All in all I was very pleased with this bra and only wish I could have ordered a larger cup. My one complaint about this wonderful bra would be about how it was shipped. It arrived in a tangled mess the straps twisted and wound around the cups. At first I was worried the delicate fabric might have been damaged. Luckily it was in one piece and not as fragile as it looked. Busty Blues from MT

This is one of my very first bra purchases I have made online. I always have a hard time finding a bra that fits right in the department stores. I don't like bras with any added padding as I feel I have a large enough bust to begin with. I can honestly say that I love this bra. It fits like a glove. No added padding. Lifts the "Girlfriends" just right. Honestly, this is the best fitting bra I have ever purchased. I did have to exchange the first bra as apparently I'm not a 40D and exchanged it for the 40DD and it is perfect. The customer service team was very helpful and answered all of my questions. They are awesome. Definitely will ONLY be purchasing my lingerie from here. Jacquelyn from Chicago, Il USA

I love this bra! I have trouble finding anything in my size let alone something that is pretty and comfortable. This bra hit all my requirements and is very durable. Many times I have to buy new ones after 6 months because they stretch out due to my size I have had none of those problems with this bra. This has been one of the best bra's I have ever owned and it makes me feel pretty at the same time. I will definitely order from this brand again. Rebecca from Urbana, IL, USA

Love it! Kept it even though the cup seams cut into me a bit, creating a slightly weird shape. Not the bra's fault! I am still trying to find my new bra size. That said, I kept it because it gives excellent support & feels great. Looks fine from the front, which is much better than a bra that is too loose, which is all I have right now. I am aiming to try a similar Curvy Kate bra that comes one cup size larger when I can find, & afford it. Excellent Bra! Anne from New Jersey

It looks padded in the picture but its not. The description is accurate in that the bra is quite see through. Its very lightweight but sturdy enough to hold up the girls. It replaced my other Curvy Kate as my new favorite. I've gotten other balcony bras that claim to be but that isn't the fit. This is a line you don't have to worry about that with. My breasts are shaped in a way where a good balcony bra is one of the only fits I'm completely comfortable in. This is a great bra. Supportive, sexy and feminine. I will add that I am a 38G but using the universal bra finder got this in a 38F and I could tell that if I would have gotten the G it would have been too big. Also, if your on the taller side like me, this may a be a good bra for you because the straps seem to be a bit longer and have a nice comfortable stretch to them. Donna from Watervliet, NY

Very pretty; descent support, but not the best; center is too tall, which is a bit uncomfortable to me. CC from Long Island, NY

The fabric and color is pretty, but the underwire pokes my flesh right through the mesh fabric. Since it is this uncomfortable just trying it on, I can't imagine how unbearable it would be after a full day of wear. So disappointed because this was the most attractive bra in my order!

HerRoom Response: Your band size is probably too large. If your band is moving around your body, this friction wears down the casing covering your underwire and ultimately causes a hole for the wire to pop out. In a really bad fit, this hole can occur within a matter of hours. Try a smaller band size and a larger cup size (e.g. go from a 42D to a 40DD) and see if your bra stays in place better.
