Nothing wrong with the bra itself it was just too big. Ordered a couple of sizes bc I was unfamiliar with this brand.
Excellent quality, good fit.
This is my go to bra. Didn't disappoint again. Always fits well and looks great under any clothes.

Fantastic service. Fast delivery. Size spot on. Quality brilliant.
What more could you ask for?
Great value for money.
Brastop will be my go to play for new bras in the future.

Really lovely fit, gives great support really pleased
Maria , 13/07/2015 15:38
It's a great bra, gives a good rounded shape and nice cleavage, I probably should have gone a cup up because it gives me a litle quadraboob, mostly on my bigger boob, but it's almost unnoticeable. Would definitly buy it again in another color!
Frederica Martijn, 05/07/2015 16:51
The cups were too small on this bra. I also thought the shape was not too good, and the fabric felt kind of cheap. However, you can expect that from the price as well. As a basic, black bra it is a bargain.
Anna, 05/07/2015 12:28
You will definitely need a larger size for this one, as the comments before say. I had to return this because it was just so bad.
Jade, 23/06/2015 21:10
Very nice and comfortable, you will need a size higher though.
Aneisha, 07/06/2015 10:24
Love this bra fits perfect gives me a nice shape and is very comfortable would highly recommend this bra to anyone looks good under anything love the curvy Kate range
patri, 17/05/2015 17:38
Me parece un poco justo de talla.Para mi no acaba de ser comodo del todo.Aunque esteticamente es muy bonito
Nikki, 15/03/2015 08:19
Great fit true to size curvy kate bra
Gretchen, 18/02/2015 20:38
Very cute! I always have trouble finding bras that give me some cleavage, as most for my size (32FF) go for the "lift and separate" philosophy, and I really like the way this one fits! Very comfortable, although the band seemed to run a bit small, so I'm hoping that some regular wear and a couple washes will help it relax a bit. Love it though!
Nicole Garrett, 12/01/2015 14:36
This was my first Curvy Kate and I love it so much I purchased a second one, lol! I can honestly say this style fits me better than any other bra I have tried. I plan to purchase more of them in the very near future!

margarittah, 07/01/2015 15:39
Have already reviewed some months ago, but after wearing it for a while I must admit it is really very comfortable, nice shape, nice cleavage. But still straps set too wide apart and alreadz mentioned spillage when bending down...these are the only 2 disadvantages why I still cant say "I have found my perfect bra".
Mel, 01/01/2015 02:16
A very comfy bra I'm a 34G and afrer wearing this bra I would go down a back size as I found the cups to be a bit big big unsightly but it would have looked sexier if there wasn't as much material in the cups which gives me a strange shape, completely my fault as I needed bras for my holiday and it was a last minute purchase. The bra itself is comfy it's one you can wear all the time, the design is cute and fun.
Louise, 28/12/2014 00:31
I love this bra - cup size is still a little too small for me even though I got a cup too big for me, but it feels good and looks awesome.
Aga, 21/12/2014 10:24
great support, sexy look - you don't need more ;)
Alett, 21/12/2014 09:37
Love this bra! True to size, nice to look at and it feels comfortable. I could absolutely buy more of this bra, and I will absolutely recommend this. It fitted perfectly for me! :)
Susanne, 21/12/2014 08:42
Love this bra. Very comfortable and supportive. Having a larger bust I need a good bra but like brastop prices :-)
Debbie Dexter, 16/12/2014 14:36
Fits lovely very pleased
Katarina , 15/12/2014 20:43
Very nice bra, comfortable, makes nice round shape and the cup size fits. My only complaint is that it goes too high under armpits and therefore can feel uncomfortable during day.
Karen Bennett, 14/12/2014 08:58
Love this Bra! Great fit and shape and very comfortable - would recommend!
Ewa, 14/12/2014 06:36
I love it. Comfortable and nice.
Roxi , 14/12/2014 02:14
Amazing fit. So soft, So comfortable. Feels like nothing is there. I don't even have to take my bra off after work. I wear it all day! Amazing for my posture as well.
Brinna , 10/12/2014 22:15
This is a very nice every day bra. I ordered in my regular CK size (30E) and it fits pretty well. The band is great, very supportive and exactly the right size. My only complaint is that the cup shape is a little funny. There is definitely a little extra room at the top, and the cups seem to stick out more than my actual boobs. Also, cleavage is pretty standard, there isn't really any lift. Neither of these are big enough issues to warrant exchanging though :)
Daniela , 09/12/2014 20:42
I was bit disappointed with this bra. Not so soft and not really great for larger chest.
Elaine Clements, 07/12/2014 18:06
Beautiful fit. Comfy. Great price. Love the curvy Kate range.
Georgie, 07/12/2014 11:27
I bought this bra as I like moulded bras for shape. I was disappointed with this as I found the cup too high under the armpits and the wires dug into my breast tissue at the centre (this is probably more due to having closely set boobs than he bra). However, what I was really disappointed with was the quality of the bra. In the centre the wires had been attached at different levels so that the cups came up different heights and looked wonky in the centre. Had to send back as wonky boobs are not a good look.
Jill, 02/12/2014 16:03
This is a great bra for wearing under tshirts. I like it a lot.
Tess, 30/11/2014 22:07
Looked nice but if puns the cup size came up much too big. I'm a 30HH but found the padding just made the cups bigger and my chest look huge. Returned.
Zena thomas, 30/11/2014 18:36
Just lost 21lbs in weight so needed all new underwear fitted like a dream ordered natural as we'll with undies fitted perfectly
Kathrine Pollmann Andresen, 30/11/2014 06:43
Fantastic bra. I like the very discrete pattern as well. As all patted bras the support isn't fantastic but for a patted bra it's actually quite good.
Lizzie, 24/11/2014 22:33
true fit to size, comfortable and uplifting.
Mo, 23/11/2014 06:52
Great all day bra, a good fit and comfortable to wear for such an amazing price
Paola, 23/11/2014 00:43
It has become my favorite bra! It fits perfectly, it gives my boobs a shape that I love and, most importantly, at least for me, no spillage no matter what position I'm in!
Lauren, 18/11/2014 14:14
This bra is wonderful. The shape is great, it gives good lift and is comfortable throughout the day. It gets 4/5 stars because the material for both cup and straps isn't terribly soft and the sides do dig in a bit (though that happens to me often with new bras).
I'm a 36G and it fit true to size, no wiggle room at all.
Pill, 17/11/2014 10:04
Nice fit, good sizing
Sam, 16/11/2014 15:12
Comfortable and lovely looking bra at a great price. Cannot fault it.
Jane, 16/11/2014 10:21
Excellent fit and natural shape. Good for tshirt s
Chloe, 16/11/2014 02:06
Band size is a bit tight but cup size is perfect and very comfortable
Laura, 16/11/2014 01:29
Love this bra. The fit is great and the support is just right. I have lost 31 lbs and getting just that right size has been a challenge. I went from a 36G to a 32FF. It is slightly tight, but I still have 20 lbs left to lose and it will fit just fine for quite some time.
Dee, 10/11/2014 21:04
Great bra. Fits exactly as expected. Smooth cups, supportive and covers well. Great service shipping to the USA. Will definitely order from Brastop again.
Suzanne , 09/11/2014 10:46
After losing weight at weightwatchers and exercising my bras were getting extremely painful so I got refitted at bravissimo (they are the best for fittings and they don't even touch you). I'd gone from a 32DD to a 30F/FF depending on the style.
I bought two "everyday" bras whilst I was there and spent £60. Even though I needed more it was just too costly. My friend messaged me saying "I saw this and thought of your boobs lol". She sent me details of Brastop.
The smoothie in black was my first purchase (at Brastop & of Curvy Kate) as it was reduced and looked great.
The website was really quick and simple to use. The descriptions and pictures were clear and informative. The special offers and prices blew me away, I cross checked the price with other websites and Brastop was cheaper than the others and even eBay!
The 32F fitted perfectly and was very supportive with no overspill. It washes and wears perfectly. I'd definitely buy this again and reccomend Curvy Kate to others.
The postage costs were very reasonable and I was very impressed with the customer service and speed of delivery. There are no extra costs to send back or exchange which makes buying from Brastop a smooth hassle free experience.
Since my first purchase I have bought swimwear and more bras from Brastop and spread the word that this is the place to shop.
Having bigger boobs doesn't have to cost the earth and you can still look sexy and pretty all thanks to Brastop!! 👙💗
Karen, 05/11/2014 22:35
Looked and fitted great at first, however the cups kind of folded over and creased up on themselves after a couple of hours wear - it simply isn't anywhere near supportive enough for me :(
Jess, 04/11/2014 21:04
The picture lies - even with my large breasts stuffed into a slightly too-small cup, I wasn't getting that kind of cleavage.
Lisa C, 02/11/2014 06:06
I had to return this bra as there was quite a bit of 'overspill' but that is probably due to my breasts being quite 'floppy'. May be good for firmer boobs.
Treasure , 02/11/2014 02:13
I got measured at Bravissimo (best place to get measured, they don't even use a measuring tape) and was told my actual bra size was 28H/28GG and not the 34DD that I was wearing. I always knew my bust was big for my size, especially considering I'm only 19 but when I heard this I was a little shocked because I didn't think such a size existed. Anyway I Googled it and came across brastop and had a look at their sale. My boyfriend's birthday was coming up so I thought why not use that as the perfect excuse to get a new bra to wear under the dress I bought :) so I bought the Curvy Kate in cream 28H then the black on in 28GG. The black one came up a little tight so I repackaged it, sent an email to reserve an exchange which was responded to in a couple of hours, posted the bra and received the replacement 2 days later I was so shocked by the speed and efficiency. The bras are looovely and even though it's a bit weird at first, it's nice to wear something that fits like it's meant to without looking like a granny bra (no offence to anyone) I just mean it's the correct size while still being stylish as well as affordable. Having a big chest can be a nightmare at times so it's nice to feel so supported for a change. I'm happy with my purchase and I can't wait to buy some more. Great service great site.
Kristin S, 02/11/2014 00:57
I ordered this bra to ship to the US. After waiting almost two weeks, I was excited to finally try it on. As I go to put my arm into the bra, I see the strap is broken. The seam mustve came off from the band. I only gave it two stars because BraStop customer service was quick to resolve the situation.
Even with the awesome customer service, I am now leary to order bras from international sites and also stay away from buying the Curvy Kate brand both nationally and internationally.
Mary, 02/11/2014 00:21
Absolutely love this bra! As I'm starting to learn te case with Curvy Kate is that you want to go up a band size because it fits snugly. The cup is great-- smooth, not too padded and makes me feel covered and supported!
ToniLC, 02/11/2014 00:12
This bra fits perfectly, true to size. The support is awesome! I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm definitely buying more. Thanks Brastop.com.!!
Anna, 30/10/2014 19:03
this was my first time ordering this brand and from my first impressions the bra is great overall.I ordered in my usual bra sizes (32GG) and i found that it holds great and the material is nice and sleek. the only thing bad about it was that the sides of the bra kept on rubbing up against my armpit so i think this bra isnt best for small ribbed girls like myself.
Mafalda, 29/10/2014 14:07
As a bra fitter and the owner of a 30J pair of girls, I find this bra amazing. I shoud've order a 30JJ, tho. I never expect great things for moulded bras in my size so this one was a really good surprise. perfect for tshirts and cleavages.
Rachael Lawrence, 29/10/2014 05:26
Got my usual size and the band comes up much smaller that usual. Couldn't even do it up! Had to return which is a shame because it looked really nice.
Mel, 28/10/2014 22:47
I've just tried on this bra and like others I was nervous due to comments on sizing I am a 34G and I feel this bra is true to size I've tried on a lot in Bravissimo to identify the best style for me. The bra makes me feel sexy and gives my assets a nice shape without being too in your face. I'm now considering ordering the other colours. I would recommend giving this bra a go.
Ella, 27/10/2014 17:48
Great bra. Simple fit, keeps you in, true to size in both cup and band (unlike some Curvy Kate styles). Always a special offer on it so it's definitely worth getting for a basic, everyday bra.
margarittah, 26/10/2014 16:09
ordered bigger cup size (good choice). Looks pretty, comfy, nice shape f.e. comparing to Starlet bra it doesnt go to the sides so much so front look is much better in this bra. The only disadvantage I found so far - apart from the usual at padded bras = no safety when bending down or running to catch a bus (girls just spill out easily)- is going too high on the sides. This can be uncomfortable under the armpits (wires need a bit of bending)
Elena Kozakevich, 26/10/2014 13:15
Great bra! however i should have gone to G instead of FF(my regular size), still can manage pretty well.
Very suitable for open dresses.
Joanna, 25/10/2014 20:00
Awesome bra, invisible under blouses, gives great support and creates nice cleavage. It is comfortable as a t-shirt bra but looks so much better than most of those! I usually wear 36GG, took 36G and it is perfect. I am so glad I bought both blush and black!
Amberlee, 25/10/2014 16:20
Love the look of this bra, subtle animal print but also easy to wear. Unfortunately I found that the back sizing came up very small and had to return such a shame.
Dawn Richards, 21/10/2014 22:25
This is one of the best Bra i have come across. The price was great as well .
Daniela B., 19/10/2014 18:17
First bra bought from Brastop.
This bra is very supportive.
Looks great under any type of clothing.
Beautiful cleavage too.
Kate Parry, 16/10/2014 18:00
So so so comfortable, gives a great shape and looks awesome with the matching knickers.
Janine, 14/10/2014 20:38
Nice Bra, well made, i find the cups cut into my underarms a bit, but this happens a lot for me becuase i have quite a small ribcage.
Jodie, 13/10/2014 17:07
I'd read good reviews on the curvy kate range but I'm not so sure! Whilst the bra is comfortable, I've only had it about a month and the bone already feels like it's about to pop through. That's with hand washing only too!!! I think I will be lucky if I get another month out of it so not sure I shall be purchasing another!
Liz, 12/10/2014 11:22
Like all curvy kate bras this is a brilliant fit - no 'bits' hanging over the top! Looks great too!
Elora hosey, 12/10/2014 09:29
My name is Elora and I have been using Bra Stop for some time now my last purshase was the curvy Kate smoothie balconette bra which I was very happy with until my second wear of it the underwire came out and started digging in to me. Other than that purshase Iv had no problems and will still continue to use them because I think they are fantastic for girls who are bigger and the price is great .
Fran, 12/10/2014 07:28
comfortable bra. Perfect fit. Works great under tight clothing.
Dee, 12/10/2014 00:46
Great bra. Fitted very well. Very supportive and enhanced my cleavage
shak, 12/10/2014 00:33
I felt that this bra was very comfortable and fit me perfectly I have soo much support when I wear this bra.
Emma Walton, 05/10/2014 08:50
This bra is my all time favourite this sis the second fourth time of buying and I now have it in every colour. It givea a really good finish under clothes, fantastic support and makes me feel good. I highly recommend.
Amanda Peachey, 05/10/2014 03:38
As with all "Curvy Kate" Beautiful, Comfortable and Sexy!
Lorraine , 29/09/2014 20:20
Lovely bra, gives great shape and looks great under a T-shirt. I got my normal size 28GG and it fits like a glove!
Anne , 28/09/2014 12:22
Very beautiful, but a bit small.
Hannah, 28/09/2014 09:11
This bra is comfortable and fits lovely! Excellent peice of the curvy Kate range! Thank you brastop!
Sian, 21/09/2014 11:11
lovely bra, excellent for work - four stars due to slight gap at the bottom of my smaller side
Jodie, 14/09/2014 09:32
I really liked the look of this bra- very cute! Unfortunately I ordered a size too small and the size up was only available in the nude colour. This was also very pretty but it just didn't suit the shape of my boobs- made them look unsymmetrical- was disappointed!
Emma Andrews, 14/09/2014 02:37
I had a faultless experience with BraStop.com! I received regular emails about my order to keep me in the know and the delivery of my bra was prompt. Alrhough I returned the bra as I didn't need it, they made returns easy with a free postage label and a freephone support line and I received a full refund of my bra shortly. Will definitely be buyin from this site again as value for money here is great!!
Ashley, 07/09/2014 15:54
The Curvy Kate brand is my favorite. The bra is great! It's full coverage, great support, and no falling out of the cups. I'm a 34gg and its hard to find bras to fit until my husband discovered BraStop. I've bought this brand for several years now and I've never been let down.
Eve, 31/08/2014 20:18
First bra bought from Brastop.
Arrived quickly and looks very pretty.
Is a perfect fit...extremely happy with it!
Georgie, 31/08/2014 15:41
Fantastic bra! Really supportive, an almost "push-up bra" feel. Comfortable fit with no rubbing and a nice shape. My latest Curvy Kate: I love this brand! I have at least 5 Curvy Kate bras; I would highly recommend for women who have a small back with a large cup like myself. If it fits my 32HH, it'll fit you!
Caroline , 31/08/2014 07:45
Usual curvy Kate high standard of support and appearance, good coverage in the cup but still true to size for me 34g - a really comfortable, pretty bra
Erika, 31/08/2014 03:49
Lovely looking bra. But was not a bra for my breast. True to the size...
Cierra, 31/08/2014 00:19
I personally loved this bra. It doesnt make my girls look like the ones in the picture but they still look good. Its a nice bra tk wear anywhere. And it doesnt show through my t-shirts like lacey bras do. Its a great bra.
Emma, 25/08/2014 00:08
First Curvy Kate bra I have bought and very happy with it! Was a bit nervous about the sizing due to other reviews however went with my usual size (38E) and it feels spot on. Great support and gives a nice shape/subtle cleavage - a great everyday bra and now have it in the nude too.
Lesley, 24/08/2014 21:37
First Class Service! I'm a new customer at Brastop and after struggling to find anything to fit on the high street, I thought I'd give it a go. As they have a wonderful returns policy, I ordered quite a few different sizes of the same bra and found that the 30E fitted me perfectly. I had been wearing a 32D! The bra is very comfortable, looks good and is very supportive. I only measure a 28 under bust, but found the 28 band to be too tight, so shifting to a 30 was perfect. Brilliant returns service and I was refunded within a couple of days. I love the fit of this bra so much that I have ordered another one in the blush colour. Well done Brastop, I'll be telling all my friends! Definitely my favourite bra.
cleo, 24/08/2014 09:40
It comes really small I just fall out of it and can't wear it. It's a shame because it's such a pretty bra! I'm usually a 28gg feels small in the cup
Diana Prince, 18/08/2014 17:04
This bra was too large for me compared to my normal size and also did not fit in the size down so I had to return. However the bra did feel nice.
Aisa, 17/08/2014 16:22
I also have this in BLACK & peach and love the comfort and SHAPE.
I' m a 28 DD with CK non padded bras and this is tre to the size - while I have to add 1 - 2 Cup sizes with the Tease Me series.
Rere, 17/08/2014 10:02
I got this in 32GG and it fits me very well. I usually wear a 34G but took a gamble by going a size up and a band down and it finally paid off.
lauren bonar, 17/08/2014 09:33
I love the print on this bra and it is comfy to an extent however it sits right up at the armpits so does make me feel a bit frumpy as i cant wear certian clothes when wearing it because bra sticks right out the sides if any sleevless or strappy tops
Aurora , 17/08/2014 01:46
I've previously owned this bra in nude, so I had to have it in black! My favourite bra that I've ever had! I've always had issues finding comfortable bras being size 30H, but not only does this bra look nice, it's super comfortable, supportive and looks great under clothes!
Erika, 14/08/2014 13:30
For me its not comfortable at all because the bra is all up in my armpits. Also got a space at the top, even though i usually buy curvy kate's in 30J.
Thinking about order a size down.
Laura T, 12/08/2014 14:59
Very comfortable and gives a natural uplift. Pattern very subtle. Very quick delivery also.
Mayya Tayvo, 10/08/2014 15:49
I was very pleased with the bra. Also the price was very good and delivery was quick.
Charlotte Reading, 10/08/2014 13:35
Lovely fitting bra very comfortable and supportive. The pattern is subtle but takes away the plainness of a standard t shirt bra
KellyBoo, 10/08/2014 12:41
I have both colours in this bra and it's become a firm favourite in a short space of time. Gives a lovely shape, has great uplift for my 38G's. Found the band to be a little tight initially, but I'm sure it will "give" after a few wears, just like breaking in a new pair of shoes :)
If they bring another colour out I will definitely buy.
Love Brastops fast and efficient service too.
Krystal, 09/07/2014 05:54
I Love this bra. I now own it in nude and black. The most comfortable bra I own. You know that feeling of bliss you get at the end of the day and you get to take your bra off? well, you get that WHILE wearing this bra! I highly recommend all smoothie bras! Fits true to size! love the subtle print!!! WIN!
CS , 15/10/2013 01:00
Band runs tight, but hopefully it will stretch.
Fabric pattern is pretty.
curvycat , 06/10/2013 01:00
this is a nice, well made bra, great for under t-shirts but it either has really tall cups or the cups run a little big. curvy kate bras always fit perfectly for me in a 32hh, but this bra seemed to have a little extra space at the top of the cup which i didn't like. it seemed like the bra was going really high up into my armpits. could be because my breasts are more full on the bottom than the to
annakristina , 14/09/2013 01:00
I bought the CK Smoothie in a 28GG and it is now my favourite bra! The band is perhaps slightly looser than some of my other 28s, but it fit beautifully and gives great cleavage for my wide-set breasts. Very happy!
Miss Bossy , 13/09/2013 01:00
Very nice bra! Simple, yet sexy (leopard print details), could be worn during a day as well as for any occasions. Great!
BUT provides absolutely no support and the band was killing me, even though it was not that tight! I'm 28/30 JJ/K and have ordered 30JJ as other reviewers have suggested to order smaller cup sizes, as it seemed like it was too big, so I though 30J would fit me okay, and it kind
KittyKoko , 07/07/2013 01:00
This bra is excellent, the fit is just right and it's comfy too. Tried it on expecting the size to be a bit off, as have had problems with the Curvy Kate brand before, but it is perfect.
When I wear it, I actually like my 32HH's, this is unusual as I normally see them as an annoyance that cause back ache and makes it a pain to go to the gym.
Plus my husband loved the bra too, so always a plus :
Amber , 24/10/2012 01:00
I found this bra so comfortable, a really good fit. I would recommend any one looking for a nice bra to wear under t-shirts to get this bra.

Great shape, and look!
The band is a little loose but all in all it fits lovely - the cup gives great lift. The style sets it apart too - it is almost a Bandeau appearence underneath tops, which means I have worn it under quite a few sheer tops.
