Since I had such great luck with the Curvy Kate Soda Pop, I thought I would give the Ritzy a try. The Curvy Kate Ritzy has the same cut as the Soda Pop and I thought it would be another great colorful addition to my Curvy Kate collection. I bought the Ritzy in Ruby Spice and it is a very pretty bra for all seasons. Let's see how it holds up to my scrutiny:
Band Size: Stretchy band as usual. It is a 28 band that stretches out to 30".
Cup Size: The 28DD bra's cups run true to size.
Cup Shape: I had high hopes coming into this bra review, as the Soda Pop fit me so well. The Soda Pop is my second best fitting Curvy Kate bra ever, and the prettiest in my opinion. The cup construction for the Ritzy is almost the same as the Soda Pop...they are both half cup bras with vertical seams. However, this bra has just a tad too much projection for me. It's a great bra for people who are FOT and have average projection.
Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: So-so. The gore is still really high and uncomfortable.
Verdict: I'm going to have to give this bra a 63% rating, which means it goes into the return pile. Generally I like to have bras that rate 75% or higher. This bra is good for people who are FOT, have average projection, and don't mind a pokey gore.
I would like to add that this will be the last Curvy Kate bra review I do in a long time. My plan was to try and review all of the Curvy Kate styles that I liked and then move onto another brand. This was the final Curvy Kate bra that intrigued me, so it is now time for a break from Curvy Kate and from bra reviews in general. I will still post petite fashion news on this blog, and sometime later this summer I will do a review series on a different lingerie brand. Thank you to all you wonderful people who read my blog.
