Perfectly Purple in Curvy Kate’s Gia

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the bras I tried while looking for my size in Curvy Kate Gia (full post here). While I didn’t keep any of them, trying them made me more confident about the size I would need. So, when I saw AW13’s Purple/Black colourway on sale at Brastop a couple of months ago, I decided to give her another chance.

Finding My Size in Curvy Kate’s Gia

Curvy Kate are a fairly young brand in the full-bust world, but they are constantly coming out with new styles and revamping the older ones. The Gia is a style that was introduced in Autumn 2012, and I’ve been eyeing it since. However, at the start of my bra-fitting journey, I had found that I did not get along with many of Curvy Kate’s earlier styles, and with plenty of other bras that fit me at a 30JJ, I saw no reason to take a risk…until I went up to a 30K/KK about a year ago, and suddenly found that my options became much more limited. So, seeing it on sale in August last year, I decided to try out both the Seafoam and Cherry/Blush colourways. This is mostly a quick comparison of the bras I tried while looking for a good fit, so won’t be quite as detailed as my usual reviews.
