Which bras are similar to Curvy Kate balconettes?

I'm looking for a nude bra for summer.

I usually wear Curvy Kate Princess or Dreamcatcher (bizarre name for a bra!) but don't think they're smooth enough to wear under something thin. Can anyone suggest something similar?

These seem to be a style that suits me, although the straps are a fraction wide but I think that's what you get with a balconette. Happy to be advised differently.

Freya do a good range of balcony bras including smoother options. Ultimo too. And I've had some smooth balcony bras from Bravissimo but their sizing is very off so you need to take time in the shop

I should say I also wear Curvy Kate :-)

Curvy Kate smoothie or daily dream?

Thanks Woodling. I'll start with a look at Freya, although I think I did try one a while back and didn't keep it.
Can't get to a Bravissimo unfortunately.

Sorry Ollivander, didn't see your post. Will have a look at those Curvy Kates too. Haven't noticed their more sensible options.

Cleo - they're a 'younger ' line of Panache, I think, and have that lovely rounded and well supported style Curvy Kate has

PS Don't like Bravissimo own brand range - wrong shape

I wear Curvy Kate and the Cleo Juna suits me too. You can get them at site called My Curves and Me. It's a Panache outlet.

Thanks everyone. Had a quick look on Brastop and Figleaves this morning but got a bit I overwhelmed.
Will try in a more focussed way later.
