Midnight feast: Curvy Kate’s Tempt Me in blue reviewed

Curvy Kate Tempt Me Midnight BraTempt Me is far and away my favourite from Curvy Kate‘s unstoppable Showgirl collection, and since reviewing the scarlet colourway a while back I’ve been dying to get my hands on the new Midnight Blue colour…. until this week, when a Curvy Kate shaped parcel landed on my desk. The mailroom, I suspect, is on to me…

First things first. I usually review all bras in what I think of as my ‘starting point’ – a 30G. This is to create a relative ‘standard’ by which to judge bras, to make bra shopping easier for anyone using my reviews as a tool (*hello!*).  Fit is, however, not standardised – so it’s important to remember your ‘right size’ will fluctuate, depending on brand, style and cut. Having recently reviewed Tempt Me however, I know already it runs small in the cup. Instead of making the same miss twice, I went for the 30GG this time.

And oh my G-cups… I love it. My lingerie style isn’t usually this, er, obvious; but for Tempt Me I can make an exception. The blue and black together are a stroke of genius: rich, luxe and flattering without being cliched – this bra is a treat for the eyes and the cleavage. Oh, the cleavage…

The GG cup was exactly the right call, giving the a perfectly uplifted and fitted (and yowzers) cleavage without any quadraboob. The extremely low scooped center is extremely comfortable (for me as a flared ribbed girl, at least), and gives the illusion of your boobs being suspended almost in mid-air. The back is decently firm (I could take a notch tighter, but it’s not enough to make me crave a 28 back) and for what looks like a wholly impractical bedroom bra, it’s extremely soft and comfortable on.  Topped off with pretty satin bows and buttons – and some wonderfully silly suspender pants-  this is a perfect bra to cheer you up as the darkness closes in. All I need is an open fire (or effective central heating, let’s be real…), a glass of wine and a scrabble set, and I’m set for winter. LOVE.

Tempt Me in Midnight Blue is widely available in sizes 28-30 D-J, 32 D-HH, 34 D-H, 36 D-GG, 38 D-G.

    Glad that bra that good for you, it’s really pretty )

    Could you please tell me, compared to Deco, how much smaller Tempt Me runs? And how shape of the cups and width of wires differs?

    When I first saw that bra I was drooling. I can’t afford it at the moment but as soon as I can I will grab it.
