Curvy Kate Desire - A Review

Review of Curvy Kate Desire Bra





The Roxie in 28DD was my favourite Curvy Kate bra so far. I tried the Desire in 28DD but it ran one size small in the cups. I exchanged it for the Desire in 28E and it was very good.

Band Size: Excellent. It is a stretchy 28 band bra, which is exactly what I need.

Cup Size: The cups run one size small so I ordered the 28E and it was the right size for me.

Cup Shape: This bra is better than most Curvy Kates, however it is not as good as the Roxie.

Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: Good. The gore is low, but the cups could have been spaced slightly closer together.

Verdict: This is 75% a good bra. Go for this bra if you are shallow and have far apart breasts.

OMG Half-size bras at ThirdLove!





Many women in the bra fitting community have frustrations with being in between sizes. I myself have found it extremely frustrating to not know whether I should be wearing a 30C or a 30D. I can fit into a 28DD, 30C, or 30D depending on the brand and style. However, I think that when I wear a 30 band I am really a 30C½. I just went to ThirdLove and discovered that they carry half-size bras! They come in fun colours and three styles (Plunge, Balconette, and T-Shirt).








Here is their size chart. As you can see, they have an assortment of sizes not commonly carried by other bra brands.




I highly recommend ThirdLove bras to any woman who is in between cup sizes and cannot find bras elsewhere.

Curvy Kate Roxie - A Review

Review of Curvy Kate Roxie Bra





After a somewhat successful fitting in the Curvy Kate Flaunt in 28DD, I decided to try my luck with the Roxie, also in 28DD. This was an even better bras for me than the Flaunt.

Band Size: Excellent. It is a stretchy 28 band bra, which is exactly what I need.

Cup Size: The cups were the right size for me.

Cup Shape: While the cup shape is even better than the flaunt. It is neither too shallow nor too projected. The wires are wide enough for my broad roots. This bra is for someone with even fullness, whereas the Flaunt/Elegance/Wild were for people who are FOT.

Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: Okay. While the centre gore is low, the cups could have been spaced further apart. The cup spacing is further apart than the Freya Deco Plunge and closer together than any of the Betsey Johnson bras.

Verdict: This is 88% a good bra. Go for this bra if you are slightly-moderately shallow, have wide roots, average distance between breasts, and have even fullness (neither FOT nor FOB).
