Curvy Kate Moonflower Padded Plunge Bikini

Review of Curvy Kate Moonflower Padded Plunge Bikini

This is my first ever swimwear review. As I love Curvy Kate's fun, youthful designs for SS2015, I had to get my hands on their prettiest bikini of the season, the Moonflower Plunge. This is what it looks in photos online:

This is what it looks like in real life:

As you can see, I thought I was getting a pretty black bikini with nice pink trimmings and purply flower details. What I got was a black bikini with hot pink trimmings and electric blue flower details. Curvy Kate's products are such high quality and I usually like their designs, but this one just isn't for me.

Band Size: Surprisingly tight for a Curvy Kate! It is a 28 band but it stretches out to only 29". 29" is comfortably tight.

Cup Size: The 28DD bra's cups run true to size.

Cup Shape: This bra has an awful shape for me. It is too shallow at the bottoms of the cups and too projected at the tops of the cups.

Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: So-so. The gore is low as it is a plunge bra. That being said, the cups are way too far apart, even for me. 

Straps: Caution. I had to loosen the straps all the way to the loosest point in order to wear it and I am short. If you are tall or have a long torso, do not get this bikini.

Verdict: This is only 50% a good bikini. it might have the lowest rating of all the things I have reviewed.


  1. Dear Saskia
    Is it ok for you to post a picture to show the padding level of the bikini? I am searching high and low for such picture before searching.

    1. Dear Khanh,

      I no longer own the bikini, but the bikini has light padding, no push-up.
