Lingerie | Curvy Kate Florence in 30F review

Curvy Kate has been slowly but steadily winning my heart over with it's unpadded bras!
First, it was jade Cascade...then the gorgeous lilac and blue Jewel...
and now, the gorgeous S/S 2016 collection new shade of Florence: pacific blue
is the newest addiction to my Spring bra-drobe!
How candy is it?!

Since 30 was the smallest band available, I picked a 30Fmy second best UK bra size after 28FF!
You can see how it worked out checking my full review after the jump!

Na saga de vos trazer opções de soutiens para que encontrem "o tal" no tamanho certo,
apresento-vos mais um modelo de copa mole da Curvy Kate:o Florence em "pacific blue",
disponível nos tamanhos 30 a 40 de costas e copas D à J!

Adorei a tonalidade primaveril do azul, a renda florida romântica e os detalhes em verde menta, adoráveis...
O Florence é um soutien extremamente confortável e que dá um formato natural e levantado ao peito!
Podem encontrá-lo numa Bra&Company perto de vocês, em Lisboa ou em Viseu!

Podem ver como fica em carne e osso no resto das fotografias da publicação!
Espero que gostem!

Aqui entre nós, já são donas de algum soutien Curvy Kate? Qual?

Um grande beijinho e um bom resto de semana!


Florence is a non-padded 3 part balconnet, 
made of semi-sheer and semi-stretchable material except for the top lace part, which is non-stretchable!

The straps are fully adjustable, 
while the band fastens with 2 rows of 3 columns of hooks-and-eyes, in an U-shaped back. 


The lovely blue shade, paired with the delicate mint green details, is adorable!

The flower embroidery adds for a little romance,
along with the delicate mint bows and the little cute flower button at the gore!

For the record, in case you're loving every bit of this bra, 
you might want to know that Florence also exists in continuity colors black and blush 
and in pansy, a nice purple shade!


Like I said before, I had to pick the 30F, 
because Florence doesn't exist in 28FF, which would be the ideal size!

With a band of 60 cm (23,6 inches) extending to 78 cm (30,7 inches),
I had to fasten the band in the second set of hooks-and-eyes right away! 

Cups wise, Florence is pretty much perfect:
it has a cup depth of 24 cm (9,5 inches), which accommodates my projection,
and a nice width of 13,2 cm (5,2 inches), narrow roots friendly!

I also love the fact that the wing is so low at the sides, that there's no armpit chafing happening!
That, along with the soft wires and materials, makes Florence a very comfortable bra!

The top lace panel is not stretchable and has a thick fabric lining on top,
so girls missing upper fullness might face wrinkling,
while FoT (full on top) ones might experience cutting in!

The shape Florence provides is very natural and uplifted, with a slight peak!


Florence is, therefore, true to size, so I'll recommend you pick your usual size,
unless you're full on top: you might consider sizing up one cup size!

Girls needing projected styles with narrow wires
and fans of slightly minimizing uplifted shapes, might wanna give this boy a try!

It's available in sizes 30-40 from D-J cups!

You can get your Florence in many colorways
at eBay, House of Fraser, AmazonFigleaves and Kaleidoscope for awesome prices!
If you loved the purple one, you can still find it at Kohl's!

Does this beauty tempt you?

  2. Fica-te maravilhosamente! A cor é linda!
    Quem me dera ter um sutiã que me assenta-se tão bem como esse. Simplesmente esta coisa toda dos sutiãs é um dos meu "ponto fracos" ou daquilo que eu menos gosto de comprar. Body issues...

    Beijinhos, Edna
