When I went to Zoe and Company in Concord, New Hampshire, I said I was only interested in checking out bras with patterns, lace, or sexy designs. Thus, when I left with the Curvy Kate Daily Boost, my purchase was totally ironic. The Daily Boost is a basic bra in the truest sense of the phrase. Increasingly, I feel as if I don't need nude bras as much as I think I do. I'm happy with my seams, visible colors, and sassy texture. However, I've worn my Daily Boost constantly since I bought it. (Also, please excuse my weird tan lines!) ~
On me, the Daily Boost creates a versatile decolletage. It fits like a plunge contour bra, without the "rolled together effect" of a bra like the Deco or the Ewa Michalak plunges. This fit, the sans-push up plunge, is a great accomplishment. It allows me to wear tops and dresses that don't usually work with any other contour styles. For instance, my "Sookie" dress:
Tada, no "baby's bottom" cleavage! Just minimal coverage for a v-neck. I've noticed that the bras that leave me uncovered must anchor my breast tissue somewhere, usually at the sides. Interestingly, the Daily Boost reminded me of the half cup I reviewed from Bravissimo. To restrict movement, the bra has a larger side than I'd ultimately prefer. I should also disclose: I currently have pretty narrow breasts. Narrow-wire brands, like Freya or Ewa Michalak, leave me happy as a clam. I also realize that this might not always be the case and that many, many full busted women do benefit from the ole side-grab. So far, I've gotten a lot of use out of this bra and the neckline it gives. Plus, how could you resist the adorable contrast trim?
- With almost any style from Curvy Kate I've tried, I need the larger end of my size. Lately, I've been around a 30FF/28G-GG and I certainly needed the GG here.
- The cups are relatively shallow on the Daily Boost. I like that, but I do need to adjust myself down into them when I put this bra on in the morning.
- The band was firm, but "opened up" nicely after a few wears and a wash.
