I was initially really hesitant about taking the plunge and buying this bra because I was unsure on sizing, but I needn't have worried. With some careful measurement and sound fitting advice I've got a perfect fit. The bra itself is beautiful, and the construction is superb. The shape the bra creates can be a little intimidating on its own, but under clothes it is magical. I am looking forward to adding a black cabaret bra to my wardrobe.

This bra is beautiful, but unfortunately didn't work for me as the band size seems to run a little large (I'm usually a 36 in WKD, but found the band on this one too loose, but not loose enough that a size down would fit). In any case, if you are lucky enough to be a perfect band fit, this bra is stunningly gorgeous, and you couldn't go far wrong as far as looks are concerned!

This is a great bullet bra, very pointy. It fits just like my 1950s bras, except its also pretty!

Being a true lover of vintage lingerie, I just had to order this one, falled in love when I saw it, and I'm even more in love with it... now that I have it! the color and fabric are exquisitely feminine and glamorous! It is absolutely true to size, and is actually the kind of shape which is perfect for my breast shape... I feel and look glamorous with it, when I wear it and it offers excellent support, despite not having underwires, which is usually impossible for me to wear... thanks What Katie did, will order more from you very soon!!

Got the DD-E cup, but sadly my girls didn't fit. Would recommend sizing up when purchasing, because it's a different fit to modern bras.

Had success with this bra where as the padded version did not work for me. Needed the same size as I wear in high street bras

Amazing bra. Unfortunatley can't fit to EU 85D, so if your regular bra size is EU85D you should wait till bigger size will be available.

utterly charmed! perfect at last...had ordered size D and too much spill over...36DD is brilliant! my man can't keep his hands off me and my sweaters look amazing!

I originally ordered this in a 34DD as recommended by the staff but had to return it for a 32DD because the first one was too big. The second fit much better around the band but the cup size seems to run small in this style bra. If I do the 'lean forward 90 degrees and tuck' maneuver it works best but I think I should have either gone another cup size up or stuck with the 34DD and just made adjustments to the band at home. It is a tricky bra to fit, absolutely gorgeous but I find the band size runs a bit smaller than the average bra, and the cup size definitely runs smaller by a full cup size. It looks fantastic and gives an incredible silhouette though. It is worth it to find the right size :).

Oops, that review wasn't ready to submit!
... Well, the band seems alright when I close it as thight as possible. The cups would fit me better if they were a size larger. However I love the extremely pointy shape it gives me. So I'll keep it but won't wear it too much because too small cups aren't really comfortable.

I got this bra in size 32F (I guess it's an American F not a British one). I wasn't sure if it would fit me because mostly full cup bras fit me best in the British size 28G
Katie says '32F is the same in the UK and the US. You're 28G size will come from a new method of bra grading used by Bravissimo, Curvy Kate etc where the underband measurement gives the band size, not the traditional add 4/5" to get the band size which we use'.

I went to the West Hollywood store to finally try on a bullet bra. The salesgirl recommended the Cabaret for me to try, and I did not expect to fall madly in love with it! The bra is so delicate but its so supportive once you put it on. I love that there is no wiring, this is most comfortable bra I've ever put on. I wear a 32DD/E, and my advice is make sure you know what size you are, for the band has no stretch. But it holds you firmly in place and gives you an amazing silhouette, raising your bust to accentuate your torso area. I'm definitely getting the peach next time. I'm officially a bullet bra lover!

I love my black Cabaret Bullet Bra - I wore it with the matching french knickers and I felt incredibly sexy! And it's such a great shape too! I may just have to save up for the peach set as well...
