Curvy Kate Emily 28dd

I bought this bra from Uplift.com. The link was posted on ABTF. The bra was 80% off and I ended up paying about $9 +shipping. I also bought a curvy Kate princess also 28dd and also for $9.

I was hoping it fit, and it does. But not perfectly. Well the cups fit…

Color: teal/white

Style: soft cup

The review: this is a bra that I actually wore. I wore it today at work.

This is how it looked with my top on:




Without top:






The view from the back looks too tight. I may try this on with an extender, but I think that’ll make the cups a little bit bigger.


I do think that the sides come up too high.


I also think the wire is a little too far back.


There is a pinch of space in the lace on the smaller breast.


The gore was very uncomfortable after a few hours. *something I’ve been dealing with lately with these soft bras. I put 2 pieces of tissue to soften the pain, and it kind of helped.




I took this bra of as soon as I got home and you can see the marks it left.


Indentation from the tissue.



The wire does look a little far back


Pushing the tissue back to confirm the wire is too far back.

Freya Ignite 28dd

Color: yellow

About the bra: This is one of the bras I got from a member of A bra that fits, she purchased them for me from Debenhams. Every time I’ve seen this bra on a website, I’ve always looked at it as being a yellow bra with black clusters on it.

But in actuality, there are colors other than black.

There are a few shades of pink, a blue, and a pale greenish blue color

There’s a black bow at the top of the gore.

There is also a black bow where the cup meets the straps.

The straps

There is some sort of stitching detail throughout the bra.

I just want to mention, that while this bra is a bright yellow, my pictures make it look brighter than it actually is. The picture of the bow by the straps, is the most accurate in color, since I didn’t have the flash on. The fabric has four way stretch, but it’s not overly stretchy.

The review:

When I first saw this bra in person, I thought, ‘oh my goodness, this is so cute, I’m glad I ordered it’. And then I tried it on and realized the cups were too small, 😥 I think I have a fear of buying E cups, since my breasts aren’t particularly big. And given the fact that some of my 30DDs are too big, I always think that E cups will be too big. But with this bra, I definitely should have gotten a 28E. I did have both sizes in my cart initially, but I decided to go with the DD. It’s not grossly too small but I do quad in it. I am in the process of trading with an ‘a bra that fits’ member for the 28E.

Smaller breast

An aerial view of the quadding. It even quads on my smaller breasts. So I know it’s too small.

Its so pointy from the side. Hopefully the 28E is less pointy.

View of the back. This is one of the few bras where I have a picture of the back. It’s so hard to take that pic by myself. I just wanted to show that I think the straps are adjusted too long, because the band looks so low on my back.

I can’t wait to get the 28E. I want to see hoe the fit of that differed from this. With this particular bra, I think the strap is very tight. I don’t know if it’s because the cups are too small or not. But if I were to keep this bra, I would definitely need to wear an extender with it.

Freya Pansy 28dd

I got a few bras from Debenhams, because a bratabase user was so kind to order them for me (the particular bras I wanted were on the original Debenhams site, but not the US version). This was my first time trying out Freya bras.

Color: Midnight

About the bra:

It has a beautiful floral design consisting of blacks, blues, white, purples and yellows.

The gore has a bow that is black and blue.

There is a cute little scalloped design on the black lace (which is stretchy).

The lace looks different on the pictures in the models.

There is a cute little decoration throughout the bottom of the bra

Where the strap meets the cup, there is also a black & blue bow.

The back of the bra straps is have black and half of the floral design.

But I feel like that makes the straps only partially adjustable.

The review:

I like this bra. It’s cute. I was kind of tight when I was wearing, so I’m probably going to use my bra extenders when I wear it again.

Okay from the side view. Pointier than what I would like, but I’ll live.

I think this bra wouldn’t work on someone that’s FOT. I have a little cutting of the tissue. The lace is stretchy though.

This is the main area that was hurting me when I was wearing the bra. The ‘pain’ started about two hours after I put the bra on. I was on my way to MD, so I had no choice but to continue wearing the bra.

When I took the bra off there were marks on my skin.

I did also notice that on my bigger breast the marks left by the wire were sitting on my breast tissue, not next to it. So I’m thinking I need to either attempt to stretch the wire, slightly, or get a 28E.


This is what I wore over the bra. A cami from walmart (for only $1.68!), and a hello kitty tank also from walmart.

Because of how pointy the Freya bras are on me,  I’m hesitant to get more. I am going to attempt a Freya Arabella though.

Cleo Maya 28dd

Color: animal print

About the bra:

This bra features two different fabrics, lace and a non stretchy polyester/polyamide blend, both which have animal prints on them. I’ve see women mention they didn’t like the different animal prints, and while I can see why they would say that, I personally think it’s cute.

The upper mesh part, has pink and green stitching, and a pink serged outer seam.

The gore in the middle features a neon green bow. The green is the same as the stitching on the mesh.

It’s slightly greener in person.

The actual cups have animal print in a dark blue, blue, light green, pink, and white. Both cups have different patterns. On my particular bra the left cup has a darker color scheme than the right cup.


The band s a dark blue color, with pink at the bottom.

The straps, as well as the hook and eye closure is a beautiful coral pink.

The review:

I love this bra. When I first saw it, I said “I gotta have it!” So I bought it in a 30dd, but it didn’t fit, so I got it in a 28dd. This is the best fitting bra, next to the cleo lucy.

the gore tacks. Although I think it is a little on the high side.

There is no gapping at the top!!

This bra has a lot of uplift.


This is almost VS level of cleavage!

Another view of the cleavage.

The only thing is, I think if I gain even a little bit of weight in my breasts, I’ll start quadboobing. But when I gain weight, it goes to my lower half.

The side view, is nice, and rounded.

I personally would prefer more side coverage. The one issue I always seem to have is not enough side coverage with most bras. But most of the bras I have don’t fit.

Something I notice about {the} Cleo bras {that I own}, they seem to push everything to the front, making me look slimmer. I think most women would like this, but I’m already only about 108lbs, so I don’t really want to look slimmer. I also think it makes my breasts look smaller, which again is not something I want.

But this is a bra I will definitely keep, as long as it fits. ☺️
