Currently, without going down to 26 band (I have 24in snug underbust) this is my best fit. I fill the cups well in this one and it doesn't dig in at the sternum or rise up over my boobs. As usual the wire will overlap one boob because of how close set they are.

This was the first bra that I actually LOVED and which started my love for soft cups!
It's fun and it gives an amazing, rounded, natural shape!

This is my best-fitting bra. It has fully-adjustable straps for my short frame, The band is quite snug on the loosest hook, the stretchy lower cup accommodates my differently-sized, deflated, soft, full-on-bottom tissue, providing a nice round shape. And the lace top cup lays flat with no gaping! But the gore is a bit too wide and a bit too short. The wire on my bigger side gets pushed onto my breast tissue, wich tries to escape the lace upper cup where it meete the gore. I get a wee bit of quad-boob where the undercup meets the lace. My tissue is soft enough that it escapes the ... lace as i move about walking, so i find myself adjusting during the day. Perhaps my FOB breasts force it down because it does not have a full band, has narrow straps and only has two hooks? Also, the material on the underwires is very scratchy. Excepting the issue of gravity and just how much a bra with these construction issues can provide all-day support, the comfort issues may well resolve after it breaks in.

Itchy and Scratchy material felt very rough on my skin; left red marks. Top of the cups were gaping as well. Material so thin your nipples show through clothing when you get cold or sneeze. O.O

The Cleo Lucy in a 28FF only stretches to about 28" (not 29" like bratabase data suggests, some of the data is probably from older, well-loved bras). Sounds typical for Panache, so I should have payed attention before I bought this!
The purple colorway is gorgeous, and the little details on the bra are very pretty. I've found that some of the embroidery on the cups shows through a thin t-shirt just enough to annoy me, but that's not a big deal most of the time. The cups lift and round quite well; the fabric is stiff and very secure. I'm a fan of the up front and rounded ... look that this gives.
The gore is my only real complaint about this bra. It is too wide for me, but it also folds over on itself because it is so unstable! I don't think this would be a problem for someone with more separate boobs than mine; also, the instability of the gore means that alterations should be super simple.
Those who want to use an extender, be warned: the hooks are closer together on this (and the other 28 band Panache bras I've tried) than on the average bra.

This is the wrong shape for me. The Marcie fits me perfectly. I have a lot of center fullness that isnt contained by this bra, I quadboob out of this because I'm more even - full on top than full on bottom. I'd prefer the wires to be higher under my arms. I'm not keen on the shape it gives me. Also the bottom of the cup doesnt really wrinkle but doesn't feel quite right.

I love this bra. It is the best fitting bra I own.

This fits wonderfully... like it was made for me. I'm definitely going to have to get more than one. I got this in the neon orange color. Only the embroidery is orange, the rest of the bra is a soft pink color. The band is a firm 28, but seems quite stretchy, and the wires are plenty wide. The lace on the tops of the cups lays much flatter on me than some of the other cleo balconettes (Lily and Ellis).

The band of this bra is on the tight side, I think a 30 band would have been tight enough for me and I use an extender for now. On the other hand I had a Lucy in 30F which stretched out very fast but that was the pink/white color way so I don't know if I will have the same issue with this one (purple).
Apart from the band this bra fits me well and gives a nice rounded shape. For the first few wears the underwire under my left arm (where my wider boob is) poked me but now that it's broken in I don't have any discomfort.

The 28FF is great for those who need a wide underwire. This works well for a medium projection. The band does feel like it runs tighter/smaller than something like a Freya, but having the right cup size ( and also not in the black color) helps to increase the comfort level. I only just received this today, so I'm not sure how the wear and tear is on it.
