I was so impressed by the fit Curvy Kate Cascade provided,
that I decided to give more non-padded CK bras a go!
Jewel, which I first saw at The Photog's Brog, was one of the models I was eyeing,
so I was thrilled to find the violet/topaz colorway for sale at Brastop.com!
Since there was no 28FF available, I ordered a 30F, my second-best size...
so let's see how well it worked out right after my mother language bit, shall we?
- o fantástico Cascade, cuja review fiz aqui! -
o "bichinho" pelos soutiens de copa mole da marca começou!
Este modelo, o Jewel, na cor "violet/topaz" era um dos modelos que tinha debaixo de olho
- por culpa da minha "lingerie blogger" favorita, a The Photog's Brog! -
por isso, quando o encontrei em promoção no site Brastop.com, não resisti e encomendei um 30F!
Vamos ver quão bela é esta "jóia" ao vivo, sim?
Espero que tenham gostado!
Há vários modelos da Curvy Kate disponíveis na Bra & Company,
incluindo belíssimos modelos da nova colecção da primavera...
por isso, se moram em Lisboa ou em Viseu, espreitem e experimentem estas beldades, quiçá:
Um grande beijinho!
Jewel is a non-padded balconnet, with the usual 3 parts construction,
made of a semi-sheer lower part and topped with a sheer material!
The straps are fully adjustable and finish with a U-shaped fashion at the back!
The band fastens with 2 rows of 3 columns of hooks-and-eyes.
What caught my eye in Jewel was, with all honesty, it's looks!
I love how delicate the pairing of lilac with the light blue is, as well as the rich embroidery...
The bra is finished off with lovely tiny blue bows in the straps and the gore,
this last being additionally adorned with a lovely crystal bling!
I bought Jewel in 30F, because 28FF (my usual size) was not available.
It turned out that the band, being 60 cm (23,6 inches) long and extending to 73 cm (28,7 inches),
had to be closed in the second clasp right from the start...
so 28FF would be my ideal size!
The cups, however, with a depth of 22 cm (8,7 inches) and a width of 13,5 cm (5,3 inches),
are close to PERFECTION for my need of projection and narrow wires!
You can see a little bit of wrinkling specially in my right boob (the smaller one),
that I think the 28FF would have solved!
I get a slight inner quadding, resulting from the passage of the cup material to the top lace...
nothing too noticeable and totally invisible under clothes, so it's not an issue!
Jewel is, therefore, true to size, so I'll recommend you pick your usual size,
unless you're full on top;
you might struggle with the top lace, so consider sizing up in one cup in that case!
I love how low the wires sit on the sides,
which eliminates the dreadful armpit chafing I'm always avoiding!
The shape Jewel provides is similar to the shape I get with my beloved Lucy from Cleo:
round and uplifted, so total score!
The lace is pretty invisible under light and loose tops!
If you need projected styles with narrow wires and you're looking for a non-padded style,
Jewel might be the one!
Did this beauty tempt you?
Have you tried CURVY KATE bras yet?
Have a lovely week!
