After years of feeling more than a little hard done by in the lingerie department, there is now a brand that supports all curvy girls who want to celebrate their best assets. Curvy Kate was created to rid the world of the boulder holder and offer gorgeous, pretty lingerie in D to K cup sizes.
The brand that launched three years ago has already built up a strong fan club reporting a 400% growth since the first year. Only ever using real women to model their collections, Curvy Kate’s commited to celebrating the curvy figure, with their shapely models flaunting natural F – H cup curves. The brand has already built up a name for itself in the big boob world and has a growing facebook following and twitter pages.
Product Developer, Adriana Olszewska explained why this range has been uniquely created: “Every girl wants to look good in lingerie whilst remaining comfortable and being supported. With bust sizes continuing to grow in the UK, many lingerie brands just don’t have the range of sizes to accommodate for the demand and women have to opt for the wrong cup and back sizes just to get something that fits.” She continues, ‘Very few brands offer the fashion, the fit and the size range available from Curvy Kate and the response to the brand has been astounding. Retailers have reported back to us saying many customers have tried a Curvy Kate bra and were so impressed they left the shop wearing it!’
Below are some Bra Fitting Tips from Curvy Kate.
Always start with the back band on the loosest hook, you can tighten it with wear over the months but a new bra should always start on the last hook. It needs to sit firm to give our boobs some oomph, so if you can pull it out more than 2 inches it’s far too big! If from the back the band creates an upturned ‘U’ you need to go down a back size. Check your side profile in a mirror with your arm up high. If the band is horizontal from back to front then you’ve got it right! It should be firm and fitted against your skin but still comfortable to move in.
Tighten up your straps so that two fingers can fit underneath. Only 20% of the support should come from the straps. So make sure you’re not holding the weight of the world on your shoulders – the back band should be doing most of the work and if you’re left with red marks at the end of the day, you need more support from the back band. Give your shoulders a break!
Next lean forward and give your boobs a jiggle, then scoop them in and up! Move your breast tissue away from the underwires so nothing is caught. You’ll be able to get a better idea of where things are going wrong this way.
Your wires should lay flat against your chest bone. If you’re boobs are trying to escape from the sides or from the top and your underwires are pushing out, the sizing is wrong.
