Bra Queen's Comments- Firstly a BIG Congratulations to Curvy Kate winning our Best DD+ Bra award. They are really pretty bras. I was so so excited to review them, I could wait to get my hands on them!
Sadly I found the material a little scratchy, but that may soften with some fabric softer:)
The underwire on these bras stops short under your arm pits, I assume to cater for the women who don't like the feeling of it rubbing under their armpits? BUT it is there for a reason, it comes up higher for support and to distribute the weight of your breasts evenly. So in turn it causes the underwires to really dig into your chest, not just a little I'm talking serious digging in. It is really uncomfortable, I can see the underwires coming out of these bras very quickly.

They also have-

Bra Queen's Comments- Showgirl by Curvy Kate, Thrill me and Tease me have a great shape, really comfortable and supportive. They look fantastic. I really like them and recommend them. They are a 3/4 cup or balcony cut bra therefore if you are super active during the day they may not be supportive enough and you may pop out of the top. However I could wear these all day with my 2 toddlers and still be supported and I'm pretty active. The underwires are exactly where they are suppose to be :)

#Semi Soft cup bras we are beginning to see much more of coming out of Europe and I am loving them they have the comfortable factor of a soft cup how they just mold to your natural shape and the benefits of a molded or preformed bra like providing shape.
# I love the fact that right now Curvy Kate is only available in Small Businesses who know their stuff like Debras. I hope for the small businesses they stay that way, however I have my doubts *wink* *wink*
If you are outside Australia then a highly recommend the awesome www.missfituk.com

You know, to me, neither of these looks that comfortable or well fitting. But I've been wondering about this brand for a while...

thanks for the review Renee! it's really hard when you have a small, lean frame & naturally bigger boobs. i rarely find nice, sexy looking bras. oh, and love the real looking models.

I know Bianca I love their models, that's the first thing I noticed!
The tease me & thrill bras are comfy and well fitting bras K.Line, I actually thought it was going to be vice versa. But as I said above they aren't full cups so some people wont like them.

My thoughts exactly - the later designs show they have learnt from the first ones!
don't know how long they will stay out of chain stores though :-(

I LOVE them!!!

Bought my first Curvy Kate bra last month and it's not going to be my last one!
They fit me great, lift and feel very comfortable.
They do soften a bit after first washing, however I didn't have any problem since I bought my bra anyway.

Anonymous 1, I so hope they do to, however I've heard a whisper that in Australia they are currently approaching our chain stores :(

Anonymous 2- How do the soft cups fit you?
How do the underwires feel?
Did you get a little bulge under your armpits where the underwires stop?

Thanks for your feedback guys!
