The way it fits really depends on your shape, though - the wires are a bit wide, and if you have top-heavy breasts, the top fabric will tend to cut in a bit more, making it so you may have to size up again.<br />I found the band to be about standard; you could check the stats of it on Bratabase if you want the minute details :)Christinehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08928146749204392195noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-41668187851915170682012-07-26T05:33:54.355-07:002012-07-26T05:33:54.355-07:00I&#39;m going to try Princess in blue in sizes 28H...I&#39;m going to try Princess in blue in sizes 28H and 28HH, but this post made me think if I also should try 28J.

I&#39;d heard to size down in the band and up in the cup with any of the showgirl bras which I originally took into consideration with Tease Me in 28H which was too big in the cup. The Tease Me I wanted (emerald) was unavailable in most sizes everywhere so I also got it in 30F which fits better than Project Lingeriehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18443503174373509143noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-26900363749752655562012-05-23T11:45:08.261-07:002012-05-23T11:45:08.261-07:00Thanks ladies!

I agree with Christine that Freya is rather big/stretchy in comparison to Curvy Kate.<br /><br />My point of reference: I can wear the Portia and Emily at the biggest hook in a 28, but need to modify my 28 Freyas to be tighter because the tightest hook isn&#39;t enough.Never Took Home Echttp://domesticoutlet.tumblr.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-9684382677116908732012-05-22T11:59:44.588-07:002012-05-22T11:59:44.588-07:00faustineli, I&#39;ve noticed that issue with CK my...faustineli, I&#39;ve noticed that issue with CK myself, although it&#39;s definitely not as bad as Panache for me (most Panache bras I&#39;ve tried are unwearable for me, whereas even though the CK wires are a bit wider than I like on the Princess, for example, the cups and shape are just better overall). I&#39;d like to try a few more styles of CK before I completely make a judgement on them, Christinehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08928146749204392195noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-42501409289099118182012-05-22T11:54:49.967-07:002012-05-22T11:54:49.967-07:00I wish I could give a better answer, but since the...I wish I could give a better answer, but since the cups were too big, I don&#39;t feel I can be too accurate! If I had to give an answer, I would say that the band feels a little firmer than most of the Freyas I&#39;ve tried, but not by a huge amount. I generally have found Freyas 28 bands to be too big/stretchy for me, but the Angel didn&#39;t give me that impression right away.Christinehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08928146749204392195noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-45260218705501790292012-05-22T08:36:49.930-07:002012-05-22T08:36:49.930-07:00How did you find the Angel&#39;s band to fit?

I&#39;ve found the bands to be comparable to Freya in most of the CK I&#39;ve tried, but I have no experience with the Angel.Sophisticated Pairhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/07548874262631290892noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-89908054994452571512012-05-22T06:54:11.093-07:002012-05-22T06:54:11.093-07:00Yes, I&#39;ve found that different color Decos hav...Yes, I&#39;ve found that different color Decos have different sizing, which drives me a bit nuts- can&#39;t just order and know it&#39;ll fit!<br /><br />I&#39;ve found the CK underwires are a bit wide (to underarm) and shallow for me, the opposite of Freya.

I&#39;m still curious as to how a 28J would work for me.<br /><br />I&#39;ve heard that the dye used can even affect the fit of bras, and that black is known for running smaller!

If I&#39;m not sure how wide the wires and the band will be I usually order 2 or 3 sizes in comparision.<br />In my opinion, the Curvy Kate Emily seems to be bigger because the top of the cup is very open. The CK Princess has a satin ribbon on top of the cup which seems tight tobh_loungehttp://bhlounge.denoreply@blogger.com
