    Didn't like the feel of this style, maybe it's the brand. Felt stiff and cheap.

    EDIT: This now cuts in considerably at the top and is painful to wear.


    I like this bra. I'm moderately full, but I think someone very full on top would have a problem with this. The yellow is cheerful. The gore on this bra is too wide, but I live with it (and in the case of the black, I took it in, which also opened up the top of the cups).

    After a few months of ownership, this was my best fitting bra. "I'll just buy it in different colors and I'll never have to try another style again!", I thought. Not so fast. The cups on the ... black Lucy seem larger than the yellow, although this is partially because the black is a full 1/4" wider at the bottom of the gore than the yellow or the pink versions. The navy with pink lace version actually is larger in the cup than the yellow. I took the gore in on both the black and the navy, which helps.

    I also think that some retailers report this as "runs small" because of the lace at the top - it doesn't have much give (hence the "ski slope" effect I mentioned above). I realized that regardless of color, the lace does flatten you out a bit if you have any fullness at all. It's not uncomfortable, however, not noticeable under clothes, and I believe it stretches out just a bit with wear. The top of the cup aside, I don't believe the bra does run small.

    It pokes a lot, but I think it's because it is the wrong size for me. It's really pretty though, and I like it.

    I got it in the orange trim because that was the cheapest version (it was just a bonus that that happens to be my favorite color) - thinking it was just orange trim on white, but it's actually bright orange on a very light peach - so much cuter than I expected!
    In terms of fit:
    On the up side the gore is low enough, narrow enough, and I actually think I don't need to alter this bra!
    On the down side, the cups are still a little wider than I'd like them, so the straps do sit almost in my armpits. The band could stand to be a little tighter, ... but I think a 28 would be a bit too small.
    Still, this is the ONLY bra I have ever worn that didn't require a needle and thread to fix, so the pros outweigh the cons. I think I'm in love. :)

    EDIT: I've come to realize this bra HAS TO be mislabeled. I have another Lucy in 30H that is a full cup size smaller. I think the fault is with this bra, not that one, and that it is probably actually a 30HH.

    I've slightly outgrown this bra, which is a shame because it was one of my favorites!

    Measure 28HH (28 comfortably tight band, 40 leaning bust); round breast shape; close set; and equally full on bottom and full on top. Trying 30H in Cleo Lucy (blue) and Cleo Marcie (pink).

    Tried a 30H because I was told the wires looked distorted in the 28HH Cleo Marcie I tried from too small a band. Also heard that Cleo run quite tight in their unpadded bras. I also wanted to see if the wires would be better a larger band.

    Sadly, the wires are still very wide (please stop pattern grading Cleo!) but not enough to make the cups collapse as in the 28HH which is great news. The ... wires are quite soft and flexible and I would normally prefer something much firmer to contain tissue. Moreover, while the straps are a little wide on my shoulders, it isn't too uncomfortable (or, at least, I've had worse) and the straps are soft underneath. The profile is wonderful and a typical round, uplifted Cleo look. The lace is stunning and I love the colour and quality. Despite being close-set, the gore is not too painful although is a little skewed off onto the breast due to being in the way! It cuts in slightly at the top on one of my breasts (the larger one) but, after trying on the Cleo Marcie, I think this is a shape rather than size issue due to having more tissue up top than the right as Cleo Lucy is a classic full on bottom bra / Cleo Marcie classic full on top bra.

    I think I agree that Cleo unpadded bras might run tighter than normal in the band but, unfortunately, this has not worked out in my favour or is not tight enough for me. Even on the tightest clasp, the band rises a lot at the back so I'm going to have to return it despite everything else being great.

    My breasts are a weird shape; The top part of the cup lays flat against my breast tissue, but the bottom of the cup drops an inch lower underneath from where my boobs are. I, personally would like the underwire to rest right where the root of the bottom of the breast tissue is...You know, UNDER my boobs to support them. It just gives my breast a weird shape.

    The band was suprisingly loose. I need to wear it on the tightest hooks. Even then, it still seems to ride up just a tad.

    This is a beautiful bra! Who of us larger sized women can resist a yellow bra with pink bow and super feminine sheer cups???? Not me!! The band is supportive and straps hold my boobs, very well fitting bra and material is nice. This bra just makes you happy, wearing it!!

    edit: I love this bra, went back and got it in the pink as well... for a sheer bra, you wouldn't think it is as supportive or comfortable as it is, but it IS!!

    The link is to my review of older colors of Lucy.

    The new Navy/Pink version is even better than the old colors. It now has more space in the top edge (a little more space than the white in the sister size 28HH, and TONS more space than the coral in the same sister size 28HH). So I don't need to alter the center gore in the navy to make it fit.
