Some weeks ago I got my hands on two Curvy Kate Swimwear sets due to a amazon-UK malfunction: the bikini tops were sold for only 2pounds a piece! I guess I wouldn't have bought them otherwise because I doubted whether this style/cut would look nice on my small breasts.
I'm happy to tell you: YES.
I bought the two Sets Carribbean Curves and Bondi Breeze, the tops are size 30D (I'm between 30C and 30D) and the panties UK 12 because I don't like them very tight, but they are actually a bit too loose (my measurements: <100cm)
- Bondi Breeze and Carribbean Curves Bikini, padded
- Size: 30D, Pants 12
- Style: three part cup, Fullcup style
- Bandlength: 60cm
- Bandlength stretched: 69cm
- Length of wire: 20,5cm
- width of wires measured horizontally from the center gore: 12,5cm
- width of wires from end to end: 13,5cm
- center gore: wires touch each other
- straps: 18mm
- back: big bikini clasp
Super nice touch. I think the fabric is a bit tighter than other swimwear fabrics are, which I think is great. If the fabric is stretched you can't see anything through. Someone really put some thoughts into that!
I'm happy with the size, on the smaller breast it's a bit too big, but that's always the case atm.
It supports your bust very nicely and I especially like the low center gore.
I need wide wires which those Bikini Tops provide perfectly. Although usually this fullcup style doesn't often fit on smaller breasts I'm happy with the shape and support!
I really think this set is worth a try even if you are a halfcup-girl usually.
The cups are lightly padded, but really lightly. They aren't stiff and don't wear out when wet. Great job!
Straps and Band
The straps are adjustable all way and perfectly wide fot this size (18mm)
The band is perfect too: very firm and broad on the back with a bikini clasp.
The Bondie is very simple but sweet, black with pink details.
If it's just "tooo" pink for you you can easily take off the pink heart button.
The Carribbean Curves are less turquoise/Jade but more lilac blue, but really wonderful!
The panties are generous and - incredible! - count on a bit more of bum so they are cut to actually dress the whole bum. I'm thrilled!
So if you are a curvy girl you'll love those panties. The sets are really nicely cut and I guess they'll look gorgeous on pear-shaped girls!
Surprise of the Summer!
And have a go if you are known to have a problem with poking center gores. Ännchen tried them on and said she didn't even feel the center gore :)
And btw, there are three awesome reviews out there by CurvyWordy who reviewed the three CK Sets for bigger sizes: Rio Ruffle, Bondi Breeze and Caribbean Curves. :)
