- Wires are medium-low in height, which I really enjoy. Medium width. CK is never 'a lotta bra'.
- Cup fabric is a comfy satin simplex on the lower part, and a softish mesh on top.
- Straps are in a nice position, not too far to the edge.
- Gore is fairly low, not too wide and tacks well.
- Rich jewel toned color. The satin lower cup has a subtle luster. The geometric mesh has tiny random cut-outs. It's not my favorite; I'm more of a lace fan.
- True balconette shape, with a little less coverage than some otheir other styles.
- Shape is lifted and round-ish, for Curvy Kate.
- Band. Not the softest. And it has a little of that thin elastic along the edges that is tighter than the rest of the band. It's not as bad as Freya, but noticeable.
- Like all their styles, as the cup size increases, so does the upper panel of the cup. I just don't care for the way it throws off the balance of the design by expanding to 1/2 the overall cup, rather than the 1/3 it comprises in the smaller sizes.
- Virtually no ability to accommodate size fluctuations. The wires will quickly begin to dig, and the already iffy shape develops odd angles that resemble a squared-odd triangle.
- Band runs quite snug and stops at a 38.
When Do I Wear It?
Mainly as a compromise choice while I'm searching for better options in a seamed, lightweight, minimal-to-moderate coverage balconette. comfy enough for a work day and breathable in summer.
