Finally, no disappointment or: yey to the Curvy Kate Smoothie!

This summer was one of disappointments, and I’m not talking about the weather here. The bra I was looking forward to the most, the Cleo Marcie, was simply catastrophic as was the much anticipated Curvy Kate Daily Boost. I started two reviews on them but could not bring myself to post them. Sometimes even I am tired of nagging.

So I tried not to have any high hopes concerning the next long awaited novelty, “the world’s first moulded bra up to a J-cup” also known as Curvy Kate Smoothie. Usually Curvy Kate bras seem to run rather small in the cup so I thought I’m way out of their sizing, since the J is only a 30J (65J) and I guess I need a 32JJ in the usual CK-styles and a 32J in most Panache bras.

Yesterday I had the chance to finally try the bra at a lingerie store in Berlin-Mitte; since I was adviced to take a smaller band size than usually, I went for said 30J and – surprise! – it was quite a good fit. The band stretched from 66cm/26 inches to 83cm/32.5 inches though, so it’s definitely more of a 32 band than a 30.

The thing about the band size is a little annoying but yey to the larger cups! (Why not rename it, Curvy Kate?! Produce some smaller band sizes and you could offer that style in a 28K and advertise it accordingly as world’s first moulded bra up to a K-cup… Winking smile)

Apart from the band size I found nothing to complain about, even the form the bra gives is nice and round. I really hope it will become a success and close a bit of the market gap. Especially younger girls are often very selfconscious about their breasts and look for a bra without seams and with padding, that’s not pushing the breasts to the side or make them look pointy. (See my blog post about the high demand for T-shirt bras)

And then I would love to see this style in other colours and designs!

What do you think about the style? Have you already tried it?
