Curvy Kate Smoothie Balcony Underwire Bra
Sexy and comfy
I love this bra! I have tried about 50 bras before I found this one. I really wanted a comfy yet sexy bra and this is it! I can wear it all day without it bothering me.
I ordered a 34F in black and 34FF in the rasberry color to see which fit better. The band of the black was HUGE. I thought someone had stretched it out or it was incorrectly sized. The 34 band on the rasberry was perfect. The FF fit better anyways, so I sent the black back.
I have heavy dense breasts that tend to fall to the bottom of the cup and need a lot of support, so I am difficult to fit. If I size down, the underwire doesn't fit correctly. Balconette bras work best for me so I don't have that funky empty space in the top of the bra. This bra fits like a glove. If you have the same problem, then look at my recommendations and let me save you some trouble.

I have been desperately searching for a nude T-shirt bra in my size for over a year since it is nearly impossible to find one in a 32HH. When I saw this bra offered in blush, I ordered one. Now I wish I had taken a chance and ordered two! It fits perfectly. The foam lining prevents show-through and support without adding bulk. The jaquard animal print, and even the little bows and jewel accent do not show through my white T-shirts. I. Love. This. Bra. If they have your size and you are hard to fit like me, do yourself a favor and buy two--at least!

Wanted to love this
I agree with the other reviewer that the sizing is too big. I fell in love with this bra(in blush) when I saw it on Curvy Kate's website months ago. I waited and waited for it to come out, and as soon as I saw it here I bought it without a second thought. Unfortunately, Curvy Kate's inconsistent sizing has led to a huge disappointment.
Last week, I'd ordered the Curvy Kate Daily Boost Style in a size 36DD(my usual, I've been properly fitted) and it was *comically* small. I mean, I was spilling out of it, not a good look at all. So I sized up in this to a 36E, and I'm able to stick my entire hand in the cup with it on. I do believe that even in a 36DD this would be way too big. I'm thankful that I'm able to order from a US site, I almost ordered from a UK site because I was so impatient for this to come out. My advice to ladies considering trying out Curvy Kate bras would be to order from a site with a good return policy like Bare Necessities and avoid having to pay exorbitant return shipping to British retailers.
That said, this bra looks lovely. The leopard print is subtle and playful, the material is soft and has a nice feel to it. The construction is solid, however there is not enough side support. Overall, with a heavy heart I have to advise my fellow DD+ ladies to pass on this one.

Nice for the price but not sized right
I was sad but this had to go back I'm a 32DDD but this was way to big around and I've never bought anything smaller across all the brands that Bare Necessities carries. Too bad because it was cute!
