Curvy Kate bras - question for the bra experts!

I've just ordered a couple of Curvy Kate bras online after hearing some really good reviews of the brand, and I'm a bit surprised at how little support there is in the ones I ordered (Princess & Gemma) I'm a 36K but the straps are so wide set and very thin, I'm jiggling around in them and the top of the bra feels loose. (I think they will both have to go back). I really like the look of them though and they feel comfortable on, are all of their range like this, or shall I try some other styles from them?

I'm used to wearing the Elomi Caitlyn bras though so maybe this is just too much of a difference style wise. Can anyone recommend any good styles to try that might give a bit more support for massive boobs? Freya used to be brilliant but the newer styles are uncomfortable around the rib cage for me, ditto Bravissimo own brand bras. Thank you!

I've only tried the daily boost and found them to be good. Possibly try them?

Curvy Kate's "sister" brand (cheaper I think!) is flirtelle
Had success with this recently in a 34K which is my usual size

And this is an improved cut with some kind of up and forward technology that might work

I have that Madagascar style in the link and it's OK but in general I have the same issue with CK bras, they just don't feel very supportive.

Have you tried Fantasie bras? I like the side support styles for projection and support.

I am a fan of Fauve bras - the shape seems to work well on my 32G norks...

I had a lovely one that was very supportive to start with, and quite tight in the band compared to others, but it soon lost it's hold. Although, to be fair, most bras seem to konk out easily, but I'm a 38J (albeit rather pert for my size) so maybe it's the load that's the problem for me, combined with being rather active at times and therefore a tad bouncy blush

I find them vey unreliable in their uniformity - I'm 30F, and I have a bra in that size which is perfect, and one which is too big. I the bough a bikini from them, and it was massively too small.

I have a few Curvy Kate bras and they're all different sizes! 90% of the time the back sizes seem to come up a bit generous but I bought a babydoll in my usual back size and couldn't even nearly fasten it. The cups are all over the place. Some are really good, some are pointy, some are too tight at the top, some are baggy. I have a padded one (Tease Me, maybe) that pushes my boobs up right under my chin, but I wouldn't wear it day-to-day as there's not a lot of actual support, they bounce around everywhere.

Why do they not do beautiful fauve bras starting at a 28.
So unfair.
I want beautiful 28g bras.

I'm not a fan of curvy kate. Their sizing is mental and nothing I've ordered has decent support.
I'm finding this with bravissimo too.
I either wrinkling at the bottom of the cup or digging in between the cups.
Freya used to be my staple, but after three months of my latest batch all the little elastic bits are hanging out.
