Now, I’m not saying that I have been having a love affair with some of my bras….but the reality is that, well, I kind of have.
Over the past month or so I have lost about 10 pounds, and my size has definitely changed a bit. What I’m finding is that I am really in need of bras in a size 38J or 38JJ. My 40’s are not feeling snug, my shoulders are hurting again, and my back keeps cracking in weird ways.
The long and short of it is that I love the look and style of my Curvy Kate bras, but other than the Emily, I cannot stand to wear them. The Portia that I got (40J) I wore once on August 8th and have not touched the bra since. My breast tissue is definitely migrating back into the right spot, and this bra just does not fit in the cup anymore. The Angel that I got (40JJ) I have also only worn once and it continues to sit in the closet. My compulsive need to immediately pop tags off of bras when I get them new is part of the reason I am stuck with the Angel.
I LOVE the Angel bra. It is so gorgeous. I love everything about it. But the lift and shape is so off for me. The reality, I think, is that Curvy Kate is not the brand for me right now. I think this means that I am swearing off Curvy Kate – at least for a while. Many others have noted that the styles don’t scale well into larger cup sizes, and I would have to agree. Perhaps if my breasts get smaller as I lose weight, Curvy Kate may be a viable option for me again. If you see another CK review from me in the next 4-6 months, slap my hands!!!
To remedy this situation, in the past couple days I have been uploading pictures to eBay to offload my ill fitting, and unworn bras. I’ve had pretty good success so far, and hopefully will have a decent amount of cash to put towards better fitting bras that won’t hang out in the closet. It breaks my heart to sell these bras, but I know that it doesn’t make sense to keep them in my closet unworn.
