[New Post] Lingerie Review: Curvy Kate ‘Portia’ Balconette Bra Set

really like how light the material feels against the body; I imagine this would be a perfect summer bra – supportive yet still lightweight and without any extra bulk or padding.

wallflower-to-socialbutterfly asked: Hi, I wonder if you can help me. I've recently dropped a band size, and am now struggling to find bras in my size. I'm a 30FF (UK) and I find balconette styles suit me best. I'm looking at up to £30 at most (poor student unfortunately!) I love pretty, vintage-y styles, but as long as they're not boring plain colours I'm not too fussy! I can't think of anything else, I hope this is enough info! Thank you x

Parfait by Affinitas is in your price range. Some Bravissimo styles are too. But if you can spend even $10 more, you’ll have access to Curvy Kate, Panache, Cleo by Panache, Masquerade by Panache, and Freya. A lot of full bust brands actually specialize in balconette styles, so this shouldn’t be a hard thing to find. You can also take advantage of sales for all these brands which would definitely put their products in your price range.

Brastop.com is a great place for big name bras in this size and price range!!! I will never stop telling people about brastop.

I don’t begrude anyone buying bras on sale. I totally get what it’s like to be on a budget, and I dig a good sale myself. But BraStop (which is owned by the same people who make Curvy Kate) undercuts its own retailers by selling new bras just above wholesale price. A Sophisticated Pair talked about that here.

Obviously, retailers can’t compete with that kind of cut rate pricing (after all, they have things like light bills to pay). So if you’ve ever wondered why your favorite independent boutique doesn’t stock Curvy Kate, this is probably why.

Of course, it doesn’t have to affect any of your purchasing decisions at all, but it is good info to know. Especially because I think most consumers are unaware of this kind of “behind the scenes” stuff that affects who sells what and why.

[New] Lingerie Review: Curvy Kate ‘Portia’ Balconette Bra Set

Upon receipt, my first impressions of the bra were that it’s very well-constructed. The mesh felt wonderful to the touch, not stiff or scratchy.
