Bra Breakdown and Review: Curvy Kate Ellace, 28F & 30E

Hello readers!!  Tonight I’m breaking down my favorite unlined bra to date: Curvy Kate Ellace.  When I first set out on my ABTF journey, Curvy Kate was a relatively new brand known for an enormous size range but very poor scaling throughout that size range.  CK’s bras had wide wires, were shallow, and usually demanded a lot of upper fullness or tall roots.  As a result, the narrow and projected majority of us got the dreaded “Curvy Kate Upside Down 7s” shape.  A couple of seasons ago, Curvy Kate must have listened to customer feedback because they drastically improved the fit of
