Curvy Kate Review & Giveaway

I've been a big fan of the Curvy Kate Showgirl collection for a while which is pretty glamorous so I was on the look out for a more casual day/weekend style bra from Curvy Kate.Curvy Kate kindly provided me with a pretty set to review but before I get in to that I'm going to give you some background information on the brand. Launched in July 2009, Curvy Kate offers a collection of D – K cup lingerie designed specifically for the fuller bust. They are passionate about fit and every garment is tried and tested on naturally fuller busted women with only the best fitting designs go into their collections.

The Lottie lingerie set is lovely and spring like with the bright pink hues and floral print but you can also get it in black and white if you're feeling a little less adventurous. I normally get black sets so the Lottie is a colourful addition to my underwear selection.

I got my regular size in the bra and it fitted perfectly, other reviews online suggested sizing up if you are a very rounded/full shape so I recommend doing a little research before you try a new brand. I like the support that the thick straps give and they don't dig in it all. There are also three hooks on the back which I always find far more comfortable than two. I felt very secure in this set and it gives me a nice subtle shape under clothes.

The bow and embroidery on the bra and the small slits on the sides of the briefs are all very pretty details and add to the feminine feel. Both the top half of the bra and the briefs are super sheer so I didn't want to shock the people who read my blog with images of me in the set but I can confirm that the set is very nice on and flatters my shape.

Overall I'm very pleased with the set. Curvy Kate cater for people with a young, fashion conscious outlook  which you don't normally find in underwear that caters for bigger cup sizes. It's also great that they start at a 28" back as I know many D+ brands start at 30-32.
It's well worth following Curvy Kate on Twitter as they run a #FridayFreebie competition every week where they give away a set. Curvy Kate have also kindly offered to provide a set for one lucky winner here on Fat Frocks to enter just fill in the rafflecopter form below, simple. (UK only sorry)

  7. This is such a gorgeous set! I love that they start at 28, because my ribs are truly the smallest part of my body (and I always lose weight there first, because I obviously wouldn't want it to go from my tummy or thighs instead. Grrrr.) and it is so hard to find a bra that is snug enough there, but doesn't leave me spilling out of the cup.

  52. Just love this set - the pretty pink bows just add to the aesthetically pleasing pieces! It also helps that 'Lottie' is made in my 2 favourite colours - Hot Pink & Lilac! The lace detail is definitely the icing on the cake! A great collection for summer or even that romantic getaway! This is the set to have in your collection
