Throwback Thursday Review: Curvy Kate Portia Black/Pink

It’s Throwback Thursday, and boy do we have a cracker for you today. It’s hard to believe that the gorgeous Carrie reviewed the Curvy Kate Portia Black/Pink bra as far back as 3 September 2010 – but here it is, and it’s still on sale at

Curvy Kate Portia Black/Pink

Product description: Portia Black Pink balconette bra styled in semi-sheer mesh underwired cups with a subtle detailing. Bottom part of the cup is double lined for added uplift while the top of the cup is beautifully embroidered and embellished with intertwined ribbon. The back wings of this Curvy Kate bra have been designed with firm mesh for comfort and support.

My size: 30HH

Fit: Being a balconette bra, it gives a very natural shape to the breast and is very comfy to wear. The 30HH is a perfect fit for me so I would definitely recommend ordering your actual size for this bra.

Materials: Polyamide Elastane

Colour: Mostly black with a lovely pink ribbon through the top of the cup. This bra also comes in a wide range of colours too. Teal/Lemon, Coral/Aqua, Navy/Lime, Purple/Pink and Black/Yellow.

Comfort: This bra is nice and firm but very comfy at the same time. I can walk around all day at work or while shopping and not have to think about my bra or have to put my boobs back in the bra (I hate having to do that, don’t you?).

Occasion: I had a day off today and wore this bra while shopping then making the dinner. I would say that it is perfect for everyday wear on any occasion.

The briefs: The thong is on the small side again, as you can see in the picture of me above, it is slightly digging in at the sides. While ordering your brief, you might want to get one or even two sizes up on this one so if you are a 10, you might want to go for a 12 or 14. I hear, though, that Curvy Kate are aware of this and the new Curvy Kate range should be slightly bigger made… yay!

Value: Considering the prices right now on the Portia range, you can’t beat that value. A great bra!

Price: the price is currently £27, but if you use the code CLASSICS before 12 May, you’ll get 10% off!

Rating: I would rate this bra 5 out of 5. I know, wow, again!!
