Curvy Kate Response: It sounds to me that you are wearing a looser band size than you should be. If the majority of the support is not coming from the back band, and rather from the straps - this can create an odd shape because the breast are pushing the bra into a shape, rather than the bra pushing the breasts.

Curvy Kate Response: Princess is our #1 Bra worldwide! Yay! The dots will show their texture through light-weight or thin fabrics. With correct washing the fabric will definitely soften up. It is a slightly shallower fit than perhaps Emily or Romance and yes, a bust line that is fuller in the top-half may notice the lace/ribbon digging in ever so slightly so going up a cup size or 2 may be in order.
