I have this bra in the same size but the yellow color and they are noticeable different in size. This black version is definitely smaller in the cup. I get quadroboob on both boobs which only is a slight problem on my larger boob in the yellow one. Other than this is think it's a beautiful bra and it gives a wonderful shape, great uplift and separates my boobs which I like a lot.
The fit on this one was much better than for the 32E, but the straps still rub. I tried letting them out pretty far and tightening them up really well, but there was still some rubbing. It's unfortunate because the bra is very cute.
Unfortunately, I find myself re-adjusting throughout the day with Lucy, but I think that may be due to the wires not being wide enough for my root (especially on my right side). On the bright side, I really like the feminine look of this bra. The navy/pink/purple combination is cute, and it's comfortable to wear though not a perfect fit for me. I find the band very snug even on the loosest hook.
Due to weight loss, I lost a lot of volume in my breasts so it's extremely difficult to find a bra that is flattering. This bra is very pretty and I feel like it makes my breasts look great! Because I'm not so full on top, the tops of the cups wrinkle a bit, tightening the straps and wearing them at their widest point on my shoulders seems to alleviate this but the straps are just too wideset for me. I never considered myself to have narrow shoulders but the outside tops of the cup/bottoms of the straps cut in pretty hard unless I maintain perfect posture.
After having worn this bra in a 34DD, going down a bandsize and up a couple cups has been a godsend. (Truth be told, I think I might even be able to go up up more cupsize but it's certainly not dramatic enough to be a dealbreaker. I only get the merest shadow of quad-boob, and only with my larger breast.)
The shape I get with the Lucy is superior to ANY other bra I have EVER worn. It's perky, perfectly rounded, foward-projecting, nicely defined. Basically anything I could ever ask for in a bra. The balconette style makes for perfect coverage - I'm not a big fan of plunges, so I like the height of the center gore but the generally level cut across the top of the cups. My only complaint with this bra is very minor ...- even though the band fits, I find that the lower edge of the center gore curves inward, leaving me a small pink line across my chest. However, this may just be an issue with my bra specifically, and certainly not a problem with the Cleo line as a whole.
This time around, I went with the navy/pink colorway, which is basically adorable. I really enjoy that it has accenting embroidery, unlike other colorways which have just one color and an accenting bow. The embroidery itself is flat enough that I can wear it with all but the thinnest fabrics - it basically begins to show through around the same point that the seams themselves show. Overall, this is probably one of my favourite bras. Read more 128 more words
I just got this in the mail and I'm really disappointed. I have slight gapping at the top of my freya bra, and i heard the cleo lucy would be a better fit for me. However, when i tried this on, it's at least 2 cup sizes too small. I got a 32F, the same size as i have in freya, and i can't believe the difference. He's anyone else had this problem? Does freya run large? Iet did i get some weird mis labeled bra?
