The prize that failed

A few weeks ago I won a bra set from Curvy Kate, they run on the twitter page every friday a #FreebieFriday, a set they give away to a random winner, I never win anything! So when I won this I was so excited to get it and see if it could break my bad luck with Curvy Kate streak, unfortunately my breasts haven't had the best of times with CK bras which slightly annoys me because I always love what come out each season from them. So I was so hoping that the Gia would work as well on me as it does my mother (managed to fit her into one a bit back and she finds it very comfy) 

When it arrived I carefully ripped open the package in excitement and there it was, I loved the purple and the little details were fab! I couldn't wait to get it on, so upstairs I went stripped down to my pants and slipped on the set. 

Both the bra and the pants as you can see have small square bows with a tiny square diamonte which I think is really cute, and I love the rather geometric embroidered section on both the top half of the cup and the band at the font of the pants.  

Now, first impressions can be very deceiving and in this case they were, while it may look like a good fit (the pants were perfect I asked for a 16 knowing they ran small) the small task of walking around the room and the bra failed. Breast tissue escaped from the top and the bra felt like it was slipping down all over.

As I thought and when I contacted Curvy Kate, I sent them some photos to try and show them as much as I could about the fit, we had the same ideas on why the bra didn't seem to fit, my shape doesn't suit this bra, not the bra's fault and not mine, just somethings aren't meant to be together. Because I am considered to be pretty full on top and very close set tends to be why me and Curvy Kate don't get along, which is rather odd because they seem to fit better on people of similar fullness :(. So the lovely Himare at Curvy Kate, offered to send me out a style that should work for my shape, which meant that the lovely Gia is now back with Curvy Kate :( 

This was obviously a freebee, and it hasn't affected my thoughts in any way, I really do think the bra is beautiful, construction and colour, in fact this is a bra my mum owns and she does really like it and gets along with it. Unfortunately though not all bras are going to work for me, I do hope that some of the Curvy Kate range will though because they always bring out some stunning bras! 

*You can purchase this bra from many retailers I found it on Brastop retailing at £29 for the bra and £15 for the brief*
