I bought the bra in a size 30G. Excellent quality, fit and support for the price. Arrived within time of delivery.

I ordered two Curcy Kate bras in the same size (38G). One fit me like a glove and this one for some reason was way too large in the cup area, I had to return it.

It actually fits! Read on Herroom that it ran a size too big in the cup, which seems to be a trend with Curvy Kate, and am usually a D4, so ordered a 28G - - - it FITS! Have had so many fit issues in the past, but got a Ellace bra in the same size and they just fit.
It's soft and comfortable, the seams do show a bit through clothing, especially if it's form-fitting, but not so much so that it bugs me. It's really cute, soft, and the underwire doesn't dig in.
Really recommend it!

AGONIZING on larger cups sizes. I wear a 38k, and the straps are far far too thin to comfortably support my bust. I had red welts carved into my shoulders from wearing it less than 5min. The Elastic folded over and started really digging in. Right now, I have wads of carefully folded 1/4 inch thick paper towel pads to act as a buffer--still not comfortable, but wearable, and my bra isn't going to leave bruises.
Technically, I'm an O cup, and this bra (aside from the straps) fits beautifully. In other words, the cups do appear to run slightly large. If you're a true K cup, perhaps a JJ or even a J would be a better fit? Honestly though--- unless you've got buffers/ bra strap pads, and are willing to use them EVERY time you wear this bra, I wouldn't recommend for anything past an H. It hurts too much. Quality materials and construction, but poor strap choice make this bra unsuitable and downright PAINFUL for larger cup sizes.
DDD/F and under will probably find the bra quite comfortable. The Biscotti color is a lovely golden/camel beige nude--darker and with more of a yellow tone than what appears on the model.

Unfortunately this isn't a bra for me. The cup was ginormous and at a JJ it was way too big. I love the flirtelle range and the JJ fits perfectly but not the Curvy Kate I'm afraid. But that's the best thing about brastop, it's returnable.
The only bad thing I have to say is that when I opened the bag, there was a black mark on the right cup, so I wouldn't have kept it even if it had of fitted to be honest. I've never had that problem with brastop before.
I'll stick to flirtelle and I just love my go to bra so much I've bought four

I'm not sure if the manufacturing is just very inconsistent with this bra or what. I should be right about a 32FF/G at the moment (my size is in flux as I'm in the process of losing weight). I recently tried on a Chantelle bra in 32H(32FF) and it fit fairly well. I also had another 32FF in this order that more or less fit.
Several other reviewers say their CK Daily Dream bras ran large in the cup but that was the opposite of my experience! Both bras I ordered in 32FF were super small in the cup! At least two cup sizes too small. I looked like a sausage spilling out of its casing! I am super disappointed and if CK is really this inconsistent in their sizing I am sad to say I'll be avoiding them entirely in the future.

I’m a 34 GG and this bra fits well

This bra just didn't fit right. I have the Daily Dream Padded Balconette Bra Indigo which fits me perfectly, and I bought this in the same size, but it just does not fit me. I am full on top and I think that is the problem with this bra. The top of the bra and the centre gore did not sit flat. I shall be returning this item.

Ordered this in 38JJ, I've tried so many and the cup was too small in all of them.
Then I stumbled across this bra and I now have the black one too.
For balconete bras in my size they offer nice cleavage and are smooth under my cloths.
They have loosened around the band + I can feel some days i'm constantly readjusting myself, the straps are small and curl under the weight, i feel I can bounce about if I don't tighten the straps a bit tighter than normal
......But..... I do still wear them all the time ., . . . .
I've recently returned the pink in a 36K as the band was too small (much smaller than the slightly loose 38Jj's I have)
In The 38K the cup gaped + there was no support (even tightening the straps more than I normally do) although the wire placement of the K cup felt better than where my wire sits under my arm in the JJ.
I'm now waiting on a 38Jj in pink for summer,
I will be trying there other bras too.

This bra fits well and is comfortable to wear. I have not had any issues with the straps but like another reviewer said, I did get some pilling between the outer layer and the moulding. Thankfully, the pilling hasn't been excessive so I still can wear the bra.

HInt: if u ordered ur usual size, and yet the cup(s) seem(s) oddly large, tighten the shoulder straps :-)
I LOVE this bra!!! :-) :-) :-) Curvy Kate’s Daily Dream is the only “T-shirt bra” that actually fits my 38K boobs AND is very comfy! :-) :-) :-) The other day, while wearing one of my Daily Dream bras, I had to bend over & pick something up off of the floor. After straightening up? I ACTUALLY did not have to “re-seat” my boobs!!!!
One warning: if u have a top/dress which is JUST large enough in the bust to fit you, the Daily Dream might make that top/dress slightly too tight, owing to its padding :-( The rest of the time, the Daily Dream’s padding is AWESOME, as it means no-one can see bra cup attributes (such as seams, etc.) through one’s clothes, AND, the padding really helps to hold up one’s boobs, so that less weight is on the shoulder straps :-)

Haven't had Curvy Kate for some years so tried again (looking for a moulded or smooth bra). Seem to be tight in the back and huge in the cups! Victory was the same (I'm bottom-heavy so maybe that's why?) Will try smaller cup - a HH or even H!

I loved the fit of this bra but unfortunately the strap broke, like tore, after only owning it for roughly 2 weeks. I handwash, don't dry my bras, and I don't wash super often so it couldn't have been that. Was VERY disappointed. :/ Must be cheap material or a fluke.

Wow, I hate to be a "Debbie Downer" but I have not had the same experience as the other reviewers. I bought this in a 38JJ and a 38K because of the sizing issues mentioned. I kept both as I wear the larger during that time of the month. While the bra is nice to look at, it is NOT comfortable. The band under the bust literally CUTS into my skin and the shoulder straps are so flimsy and thin that they curl into a tube that cuts into my shoulders. On top of that, there seem to be some strange pilling happening between the outer fabric and the moulding inside. Curvy Kate has recently made some changes in production as I had the EXACT same issue with the Ellace I ordered. Correct size, but the under bust band cut me and the shoulder straps were flimsy. I don't have this issue with my older, more sturdy Curvy Kate Bras like the Princess or the Dreamcatcher. Overall, VERY DISAPPOINTED.

I was so pleased the first time I found this bra a few years ago. I have a few of these in various colours and always wear them. They are true to size, gives a great shape and very comfortable. The best bra I have ever had and I will always buy these.
Thomae Akritidou , 24/05/2016 05:53
I love this set so much because it's so so comfy, nice and true to size. I would recommend it to anybody!!!
Jayne Reed, 22/11/2015 03:38
Brilliant bra, very supportive and comfortable. I find it difficult to find a bra that fits as I'm a 32JJ, this is perfect. It's excellent quality and gives gorgeous shape, my boobs look awesome and I feel great.
Kalia, 28/09/2015 08:52
It is great. It fits me better than my fav bra, so now I need more of this :) And my boobs are big, so if you in doubt, try it. Very comfortable and nice shape, easy to wash - dry during the night. I love it
Raeleen Agate, 27/09/2015 08:06
I'm a size 32k and have struggled recently to find a comfortable bra. After reading the reviews on this one, I thought I'd give it a go. Couldn't be more pleased with it. Fits lovely, holds everything in place. And doesn't dig in anywhere. Well worth it ladies.
Michelle Buckland, 14/09/2015 22:15
I kept hearing that padded bras are awesome but with my 38Ks I'd really not wanted to risk it. Finally decided to give this one a go and I'm in love. Fits like a dream and doesn't add more bulk, everything is just sitting nicely. Will definitely buy more

If someone had told me even a month ago, that I'd be recommending a padded bra for a bust my size, I would've laughed at you. I never understood why a large busted lady would want to add to it with padding, but after reading recommendations of this style on another site, I figured I had nothing to lose except for my usual scratchy fabric, wire-stabby bra. This bra is a revelation. It's soft, comfortable and the padding, instead of adding to my already large bust, somehow manages to make it look neater and smaller while giving amazing support. I'm now the proud owner of 2 biscotti and 1 black in this style, as well as the denim Arizona style and can't see me going back to non padded for everyday wear.
If you have doubts, I would say try it and if it doesn't work for you, send it back and you've lost nothing.
