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
This is my second Cleo Lucy purchase, and the 32F in black fits pretty much identically to the red colorway I bought last year.
I'm usually a 30FF or 32F, and I prefer the 32 band in this style, as it is on the tighter side. I get perhaps a *slight* amount of quadding on my larger side when I fully swoop and scoop, but this is preferable to the extra space/wrinkling I get if I size up to the 32FF.
The shape I get in this is projected, lifted, and narrow. Not as rounded as the Cleo Marcie, but still more rounded than pointy.
I love how cute this bra is. The colour is fantastic. It's a cup size too small, but only barely (the FF is also slightly too big). Aside from that, it is comfortable and I like the rounded shape (I don't like the pointy shape). I don't have any significant complaints about this bra, only sad that I don't have the purple in a larger size.
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.
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?
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.
