    Feels great and very supportive! Definitely good looking. I feel like it lifts my boobs out a bit more than other bras, if that make sense. Only downside is that it's a little too big in the cups. I could easily have gone down a cup size, despite the fact that I ordered my regular CK size. Not a big enough deal to return though I don't think. I popped some light padding in the bottom and it's fine.

    My first curvy Kate purchase and it is pretty good.
    I thought this was true to size and comfortable to wear

  • 5 out of 5 stars Pamela Keys, 23/08/2015 03:39

    I love the bra, wish I had gotten the size E instead of D, beautiful color and sexy for busty size.

  • 4 out of 5 stars Lis, 10/08/2015 13:47

    The cut of this bra is very flattering, giving a lifted and slightly seperated look. The long line style and 5 hooks offer excellent support, for me the only issue is that the wire between the cups comes up much higher than I'm used to and digs into my cleavage. I ordered this bra in a 28GG and wear it on the tightest hooks, I usually wear a 30GG -so I hope this helps give an idea of the sizing.

    Great bra - definitely doesn't give the cleavage suggested, but overall, very good and would buy again.

    This is the first longline bra I've been able to fit into and it's brilliant. Great fit and looks fantastic!

    Cons: A balconette style, this does not provide breasts of iron. Neither is it a minimal bra (there's more fabric in the cups than most of my unlined everyday bras). It is quite comfortable, however, and flattering. My main gripe is that I wish the embroidery was a more subdued tone. Overall, great fit and construction. Nice fabrics.

  • 5 out of 5 stars Kay, 09/06/2015 11:33

    Excellent fit and look. Rolls slightly at the front but not noticeably or uncomfortably. Is quite difficult to do up all 6 hooks but the smooth silhouette is great!

  • 5 out of 5 stars Theresa Egleton , 07/06/2015 16:46

    Love this bra, it's so pretty and provides enough life as I find some bras in my size lift and separate rather that enhancing a cleavage unlike this one that does everything I need including flattening just under my boobs!

  • 3 out of 5 stars Wendy O, 07/06/2015 10:27

    I was surpprised that i could get a longline bra my size 34GG but i just got a 32 h just to see how it fits and it did. Although if you are abit chucky on the mid section it rolls up and not so comfy and the pattern on the bra is visible through ur cloths but i want to wear it over spanks and see how it works but its comfy though

    Great fit, super comfy  and looks great

  • 5 out of 5 stars Monika , 24/05/2015 15:53

    I absolutely agree with Sara !!!! The best bra I ever had.

  • 5 out of 5 stars Lotus, 23/05/2015 12:17

    Absolutely love it, very comfortable. The sizing is exactly how it should be!

  • 5 out of 5 stars K, 17/05/2015 02:18

    I love this bra! I'm usually a 32dd so that's what I ordered and it fit perfectly :)

  • 5 out of 5 stars Celia Rodrigues, 15/03/2015 09:00

    Great fit, wonderful embroidery, excellent back support!

  • 5 out of 5 stars Jenna , 15/03/2015 01:58

    I've never had a 'long line' bra before & this is very comfortable. I did find the hooks slightly harder to do up but I guess I'm just used to 3 hooks! Personally, I felt that the padding is unnecessary (especially in a 38GG) & would love this i unpadded.
    I love all the curvy kate bras & they are the best bras I have found for my size & the only brand I wear.
    Also, excellent value for money.

  • 5 out of 5 stars lauren hart, 08/03/2015 09:55

    This is a great bra for anyone who struggles with digging in wirWe. the long line keeps it all I'm place. Fab!!!

  • 5 out of 5 stars Sarah , 01/03/2015 13:35

    Really comfy bra fits perfectly and really great quality

  • 5 out of 5 stars Baindu Amara, 01/03/2015 00:57

    Such a beautiful item, fits well and matches the item description and more.
    I bought this bra for a special occasion and wore it under a knitted dress and didn't get that awful bra line you normally get with other bras
    Recommend item and fits well for those with big bust and a smal frame

  • 5 out of 5 stars Maddy , 22/02/2015 01:47

    This is an amazingly beautiful bra. It is very comfy and great fro my small frame as it puts changes slightly where the weight of the breasts is on my back (I'm a 28HH btw so can have some back problems which are not due to bad sizing of bra).
    The bra is comfy. However it took me a while to get the straps in the right length otherwise the bra would dig in under my armpits.
    The front part of the bra whenever I sat down or moved would roll up which was very irritating. This is the reason the bra has only got 4/5.
    The bra gives me a great shape. It is very uplifting and rounded so be careful if you do not wish too look very busty.
    Overall the bra is very pretty and perfect for in the bedroom or just everyday wear.

    I love Curvy Kate lingerie, however, for some reason although I tried two different sizes in this one, I couldn't get one to fit.  My normal Curvy Kate size was too big, and so was the size down.  So, unfortunately, this one wasn't for me :(

  • 5 out of 5 stars Martina, 24/12/2014 11:00

    This just arrived in the mail today so merry Christmas to me :-) This fits like a dream, it gives me the support I need without looking like something my grandma would wear. Sunce there aren't really any shops here in Croatia where I could get bras in my 32G (and I haven't had a proper fitting in ages), I took a bit of a gamble with this, but I'm so glad I did, hubby is going to live his Christmas present ;-)

  • 5 out of 5 stars Vinni, 09/11/2014 12:56

    I have this bra in pink and the material is different from the black. I suggest you size up in the black. On me it seems smaller than the pink one.

    Gorgeous bra, very flattering, fits well. Absolutely love the colours.
