Rich satinesque material and fiery mesh cut-outs. The Scantilly by Curvy Kate Rapture is a showstopper of a lingerie set.

The Scantilly Rapture, like so many designs in the range, is a bra that just screams to be seen! With sharp, plunging lines, mesh detailing, peek-a-boo elements and satin-esque textures it is a bra too beautiful to only be worn in the bedroom.

It is a bra to be revealed with the flame harness detail peeking above a low cut top or from beneath a v-neck blouse. It would look equally amazing worn beneath a sheer body or blouse. Think Villanelle in a sheer pink organza blouse with black satin, flames, and strapping poking through from beneath. That is how I will wear this bra out!

Construction

The Scantilly Rapture is half cup bra constructed from foam cups wrapping in slinky faux-satin material. The half cup design means that the cups end around half-way across the boob, just covering the nipple, with a square neckline. I would almost describe this as a low-cut version of the traditional balconette – only more overtly sexual.

The foam cups, with three vertical seems, creates a high, lifted and rounded shape to the breast. This effect of pert, rounded breasts is enhanced by the deep-v strapping detail that starts just below the collar bone and falls sharply to the cleavage.

The bra, in larger sizes such as I’m wearing, is closed by three hook and eye closures. The back band is wide and constructed from mesh with faux-satin seam details. The adjustable straps are made from the same satinesque material.

Support

Scantilly Rapture Review

With my H-cup breasts, a half cup never feels particularly supportive. It is designed to lift and show that pert, rounded silhouette. It is not designed to support. I feel that is very much the case with the Scantilly Rapture. It has amazing aesthetics but little in terms of containment.

But it is not designed to contain. It is designed to tantalise – and H cup boobs definitely jiggle and tantalise in this. The breasts do, however, remain in place in the cup so there is no fear of a nipple slip beneath that pink organza blouse.

Fit

I’m wearing a 36H in this bra and could, perhaps have sized up to a 36HH. This is due to the half-cup construction which can create a slight overspill, or double boob. I have bottom heavy breasts which are rounder and fuller beneath the nipple. If, however, your breasts are fuller at the top/above the nipple, then you definitely want to size up in the cup.

The back band is firm but comfortable in my usual 36 sizing. It sits low down the back and doesn’t ride up with wear. The central gore sits firm against my sternum without any gaping. This suggests the back band is slightly firmer than other Scantilly styles I’ve worn in the past where I have needed a 34.

Price and Comfort

If you don’t mind the jiggling of boobs not tightly harnessed, then this bra is extremely comfortable. The material feels soft and gentle against the skin. The uplifted style is not too restrictive and the strapping detail is roomy without excessive gaping.

The bra is priced at £47 with the matching high waist briefs retailing at £27. This is fairly standard for Scantilly bras which are that little more luxurious than their Curvy Kate counterparts.

You may not wear them quite as much as you would a conventional t-shirt bra, but the Scantilly range do last exceptionally well. This definitely makes them worth the money in my eyes – especially as they are such showstoppers!

    You look amazing. The underwear set is really nice aswell, it’s not as boring as most of the curvier ones you see. I love the lacy bit.

    I love the mesh on this bra and I really appreciate the wider band, too many bras I get are quite narrow and don’t sit right x
