The Curvy Kate Bra For Big Busts

The Curvy Kate bra for big busts is a relative newcomer on the large cup bras scene but has become a real contender in a very short space of time. It started off as a general lingerie retailer specialising in the fuller figure and then developed it's own range in 2009.

Because they understood the concept of comfortable bras for large busted women and aimed for quality, with a modern twist, Curvy Kate Bras understandably became very popular, very quickly.

The Curvy Kate Bra for Big Busts

Please note, because of the size of the Curvy Kate Lingerie range and to make the readability and download speeds better I have split the review into two pages. This page purely deals with their balcony bras with some Curvy Kate nightwear additions.

The Current Curvy Kate Bra Range

If you take the quality as read, the real attraction of this selection is the variety of vibrant colours that are available. 

Unfortunately I cannot show them all but have chosen a variety as examples. I do not list every size available, simply the highest cup size in each band width. The ranges normally always start at a D cup.

Like many of you, I am also a fan of matching underwear so rather than just simply show the brassiere, I like to show pictures with the accompanying under-crackers, or lingerie, if you prefer.

Curvy Kate Balcony Bras

The majority of bras sold are the balcony or balconette style, so no big surprise that there is a big selection here. Indeed, this page deals exclusively with that style.

Princess

Tease Me

The Tease Me Curvy Kate bra

The Curvy Kate Princess bra is one of their most established and best selling ranges. It is a balcony style and there are five attractive colours including the traditional black, nude and white as well as Tiger Lily (above left) and Night Silver (Blue polka dots).

The size range starts at a D cup and goes up to is 28K - 40K, 42G - 44G. They also come with matching shorts or thong. The thong is essentially see through but the shorts have a modesty panel.

The Tease Me Curvy Kate bra for big busts is also a long standing balcony style although frustratingly it may now possibly be discontinued. This black and gold. It has a vertical 3 part seam cup and a very attractive interwoven ribbon along the top of the cup.

It has the same construction as the discontinued Thrill Me range and many bloggers like it because it does not cover a lot of their chest or give a massive cleavage, so downplays their size. The sizes run 28J-30J, 32HH, 34H, 36GG, 38G. There is a frilly thong (shown) or briefs.

If you are tempted, read a very good, comprehensive review on the Tease Me bra by the blogger voluptuously thin. Obviously all reviews are subjective but she gave it high marks and rated it her second favourite, which is a seriously impressive from a quality blogger on large cup bras.

Ellace

The Dreamcatcher

The Dreamcatcher bra in biscotti colour

The Ellace bra range is relatively new but has been nominated as one of CK's Essentials range. It is often just sold in black / champagne but there are also crimson red, latte and white variations. So far I have only seen the colour black being sold but I am sure you will find others soon. Cup sizes are (UK) 28-40D-K, 42-44D-G. It is an unpadded, stretch lace balcony bra. With matching Brazilian briefs.

The Dreamcatcher bra has the same large cup bra sizes as the Gia range above. Just like the Gia, it also has a matching thong or briefs. It is available in four colours: Black, Biscotti (as shown), Rose (scarlet), Petrol Blue and Frost (turquoise). 

Both of these styles are what the Curvy Kate bra folks call 'continuity lines', so that means they will continue to manufacture them for the foreseeable future. Which will please many of you because seeing a favourite style discontinued is very frustrating.

I enjoyed a very good review of the Gia bra by a blogger called Ann (34HH) at The Curves Have It which is a good read if you are considering that style.

Curvy Kate Portia

A 2nd Portion

The Portia bra from Curvy Kate Lingerie

The enormously attractive and popular Curvy Kate Portia bra range is unsurprisingly another continuity line. This means you get a full range of sizes 28K - 40K and a great selection of colours. There is the lime / rose (shown), the black / pink, the white / pink, the spice / show (orange), the Seamfoam / pink (sky blue) and the watermelon / plum (salmon) also shown above.

The ribbon trim and eyelet lace make it stand out and the colour blends are fabulous and well worth checking out.

It is not padded or moulded but it is sheer. All naturally come with matching briefs or thong.

As an aside - Portia is the heroine of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. She was beautiful, gracious, intelligent, quick witted, tactful and rich - sound familiar? I wish!

Lola

Ritzy

The Ritzy Curvy Kate Bra for Big Busts

The Lola style Curvy Kate bra is available in two colour schemes. Ivory / gold (as above) or black / boysenberry. The sizing is straightforward, 28K - 40K. The actual construction is the same as the popular Daily Boost style below.

The Ritzy Curvy Kate bra for big busts does not have the K cup but still extends up to a very respectable 28J - 38J cup size. There is also a diamante drop pendant on both the brassiere and thong or briefs for a little extra glamour. The Ritzy is available in either ruby red, berry black/blush or black/copper.

The exciting aspect of these two balcony styles is that they both also have babydoll nighties available too - please see the right hand column.

Bardot

Bardot SG3101 Berry Copper UW Balcony Bra

The Daily Boost Curvy Kate bra is described in their own literature as perfect for everyday wear. That just about sums it up. It has far less fancy frills and whistles but it has the smooth shape and basic colours that we all need in our wardrobes. It comes in black, white, nude or mocha. 

As the black, white and nude colours are well understood I have shown the mocha, which is rather lovely and will suit many skin tones as well as Autumn (Fall) clothes. 

It is a 'continuity line', so it will be around for a while and is sized 28K - 40K

By contrast the Bardot style is a one-off. It is only available in the one colour a 'berry copper' on the lower cup. Not exactly simple size range but 30D-J, 32D-K, 34 - 34D-JJ, 36-40D-K. It is also available with short with integral suspender / garter belt and as a babydoll.

I am unsure what Brigitte would think of this set but I am sure she would have rocked it.

Feeling Romantic?

Romance Bra from Curvy Kate

The Romance sadly is hard to find nowadays. In UK 28-40D-K (D-N in US sizes) these are proper large cup bras for big busts. If you like your bras to be pretty as well as functional, the Romance has contrast embroidered swirls and delicate bow detailing.

Finally, the Cascade style Curvy Kate bra. The main colour seemed to be a topaz blue but this appears to recently have morphed into a Pacific Blue. There is also a good chance you might still find the green 'pixie'. It is sized (UK) up to 28-38K, then  - 40J, 42F and 44G. There are accompanying shorts or thong. 


Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan

Curvy kate bras for big boobs

The Curvy Kate underwear folks created a real stir in the large cup bras market when they launched their 'star in a bra' competition for DD plus women.

They then used the winners and 'runners up' to star in their marketing campaigns. The 4 x ladies in the photo to the left are not (or were not) models.

Of course the wonderful advantage is that these ladies (whilst slim) are genuine big busted women so unlike many of the stock pictures of other brands of large cup bras, you actually get to see what the lingerie looks like on actual big boobs. The ladies (from the left) are a 28HH, 30FF, 30GG and 30G.

Whilst it is great that they start at a 28 back size, do not be put off if you are a fuller figure, they also go right up to a 44 in many ranges.

Material Facts

Curvy Kate Bras for Big Boobs

A regular feature on the Curvy Kate bra is small ribbons where the cup meets the strap and / or on the central gore, so I do not tend to mention these.

It is worth briefly mentioning that the majority of these brassieres all have a similar fabric mix: 85% polyamide and 15% elastene.

Polyamides have high strength, abrasion resistance and resilience which means they account for about 95% of all womens' hosiery.

Elastene is better known by the trade name spandex, lycra or dorlastan and gives fabric the ability to stretch and flex.



Sizing

Please note this is a British brand so the sizes are typical UK sizes. 

Whilst Curvy Kate Bras go up to genuinely large bust sizes in all their ranges, a special mention go to their 'continuity' styles which are generally 28K - 40K and then 42G - 44G.

For those big busted but smaller build ladies with back sizes of 28 band you will love how many varieties go right up to a K cup.


Curvy Kate Nightwear

Curvy Kate Babydoll - Ritzy

Curvy Kate Nightwear Ritzy Babydoll
BraStop (UK)

The Curvy Kate Nightwear range has a choice of three babydoll nighties. The important issue is that they incorporate an actual large cup bra so they genuinely fit large busted women.

The sizes are not even based on standard dress sizes but again based on cup sizes and run 28K - 40K.

Above is the black (with almond pinstripes) Ritzy babydoll nightie and below is the ivory / gold Lola variation. The Lola also comes in (crimson) boysenberry / black colour and the Ritzy has a Ruby red alternative.

Both these Curvy Kate nightwear styles have balcony bras incorporated within them. As third alternative you could opt for a plunge bra version, the Roxie, which is featured on the other Curvy Kate bras for big boobs page.

Of course both have a choice of briefs or a thong too in all three styles.

Curvy Kate Babydoll - Lola

There is a very good discussion on these babydoll nighties with large cup bras by someone I consider to be one of the best bloggers on big bras at brasIhate.

It is a particularly interesting article because she demonstrates how different breast shapes affect the fit. So what might suit one woman may not be suitable for another, with the very same bra size.


Discontinued

A perennial problem for bloggers is that the Lingerie companies suddenly drop styles with no notice. I think these have now been discontinued:

The popular Gia bra in boysenberry and blackGia
The Eden Rose Curvy Kate BraEden
Wonderland Curvy Kate BraWonderland

You can still find these but the range will be limited, so if you particularly like them buy them quick.
