The pictures don't capture this well at all, but this bra looks like it was painted onto my bigger (left) side and wrinkles only very slightly on my smaller side. I love the way it fits, lifts, and gives a very flattering and attractive shape. I am so happy that I got this bra in a trade!
I forget what this bra is supposed to be diagnostic of but I think it is ideal for my shape. Full on bottom? Even? Hippogriff?
Also, the cups are less than a half inch wider than my tissue on the sides, so I call that a win.

I'm not entirely sure what's going on with this one. The band fits great. The gore is lower than my Cleo Lily, which is a huge relief. Surprisingly, the cup is perfect on my right boob and wrinkly on my left. I thought any size difference between my boobs was negligible but I guess Lucy doesn't think so. The cups also feel like they're just a tiny bit too wide. [Edit: this is negligible.] Regardless, it's comfortable and seems like a decent enough fit, so I will be keeping this one.
Edit: or maybe not. I got another Lucy in 28D which is a better compromise for both boobs imo, with only the slightest quad on the right.
Edit 2: Actually, I'm not sure about that anymore. The 28D is fine on my left boob and quads on the right. The 28DD is fine on my right boob and wrinkles on the left. Which one fits better overall seems to vary by time of month so I might just keep both.

The wires and straps were quite wide. I had quad boob after swooping and scooping, and wrinkles were the nipples meet the cup. The pink colourway is lovely, but she just wasn't the gal for me.

The cups in this bra are definitely too deep for me. I have shallow breasts and I probably should have purchased the 28d, although I'm still not quite sure it would suit my shape. The top lace portion wrinkled and there were slight wrinkles around the cup. I tried doing the scoop method and everything I could to try to fill it, but it just wouldn't fill. It's mainly in the top portion that I am lacking in. It's my first 28 band, so I guess I have to expect some failure while searching for the right bra! Everything else seemed to fit fine and it's a gorgeous bra. It is just too bad because I purchased it from the UK (I am from the US) and would rather not have to pay to return. So, if you are at all hesitant about sizing and you have shallow breasts, go for the smaller size!

I tried the 30DD and this one. I don't know which one fit worse, which makes me sad. I really wanted this one to work.
The 30DD was too big in the cup and the tightness of the band was alright. After trying to fit my breast tissue into the cup, I could see the wrinkling at the top for both breasts, and there was the bulge under my arms.
Whereas the cup and the band were too tight. I got quadboobing immediately after scooping and swooping, and the bulge under my arms was quite prominent.
I'm very sad, as I was looking forward to trying this bra and hoping it would be a great fit.

This bra was fantastic when I was 28DD, good for my even, tall, shallow boobs. Too small in the cups for me now, the top line cuts in and I spill out. Such a vibrant pretty colour scheme and the lower cups are lined with a soft mesh inlay.

I tried this on in my calculated size 28DD and (as I imagined) the cups were too big. My boobs are shallow with a wide root so that may be why. The cups were flat in some positions but as soon as I bring my arms together in front of me the gapping would appear. Otherwise the bra itself is very pretty. It's not very good for everyday wear as the lace shows up bumpy under thinner/jersey fabrics and my nipples still poke out. I found the band to be slightly tight while wearing it for 20 minutes so I would imagine it would be uncomfortable after a whole day of wear. As the bra is made of lace, it is slightly itchy especially around the center gore. The center gore may also be slightly wide for me. The straps are fully adjustable which is always great!

The wires are the perfect width. and the band is quite firm, perhaps overly so. The gore ever so slightly doesn't tack, but the width is exactly right for me. However, the top edge of the bra cuts in along my larger breast, and maybe along the smaller as well. I am fairly even, so I can't tell if this is a shape or size issue. Also, I have a hard time keeping my nipples under the seams, and the bra gives me a slightly downward-pointed shape under clothes. I realized that this is because the bra's apex is lower than my natural apex, which points to the bra being too small.
I am going to keep monitoring the fit throughout my cycle, as well as try a more open Cleo in a similar size.

I have the Coral color. I feel kind of smashed while wearing this bra. This bra is just too small for me. I really like the color though.

I bought this along with the Cleos Lily and Marcie in a first attempt at figuring out my shape. The Lucy is quite a nice-looking bra, a balconette style like the Lily and Marcie, but it seems to be a bit wider and shallower than the other two bras. It's also known as a bra more suited to full-on-bottom shapes.
On me, however, this bra was so wrong it's a little hard for me to review it properly! It slid down my chest as soon as I put it on, as if my boobs were repelling it. After I hoiked it up into the right place in my inframammary ... fold, I found I got a very bizarre triple boob effect from the seams. It was obviously a cup size too small so that might be part of the problem - yet the Marcie in this size was also too small yet didn't have quite such a violent reaction to my boobs! On the plus side, the gore is shorter and less annoying than the higher gores of the Marcie and Lily.
Although this is one of the weirdest bras I've ever tried on, at some point I'd still like to try it in a cup size larger just so I can be sure it's the style of the bra that's wrong and not just the size. Certainly a nice everyday bra if it suits your shape.
