    Fits

    Cleo's supposed to have fairly wide wires and Lucy good for FOB shapes, so I decided to give it a go. I think I'm pretty happy with it.

    I did not expect the fabric to be as thin as it is, though. Maybe it's just because it's white, but it's VERY thin. I can see my nipples pretty clearly through the material, and they are not much darker than the rest of my skin. It doesn't bother me much, but still, that was slightly unexpected.

    Aside from that - the band fastened without any issues; it's a bit snug but it's also brand new so that's not too ... surprising. It's not uncomfortable by any means. No real wrinkling on the cups other than a bit on my smaller breast but I've come to expect that anyway. Wires sit wide enough that they don't seem to be on any breast tissue - they're comfortable. Both the gore and the sides don't come up high enough to be annoying; still higher than I want but I guess I need to just cave and buy some plunges for low-enough gores.

    The shape is...wow. It's very high and very rounded. Like, it gives me serious "cakes on a plate" boobs. I knew that Cleo is known for high rounded shapes but I kinda didn't think my breasts were possible of the shape they're in while wearing this. Looking at the pics I took, it almost makes the front of my breasts look slightly flat, but I didn't really notice it like that while I was wearing it.

    I wish it had a three-hook enclosure instead of a two-hook, but oh well. I'll live, I suppose.

    Overall, I'm thinking this one will be a keeper. It's cute, it's comfy, and I need more than one bra that fits me properly.

    I had a really hard time keeping this bra up in my inframammary fold. At first I thought the bottom was too shallow - which is very strange since this is a highly recommended bra for Full on Bottom women - but looking back through my photos I now believe that the wires were simply too narrow for my root.

    It is very similar to the Cleo Marcie (6831) , with the exception that it's top is a bit more closed off to better fit women who lack upper fullness. I have a pretty even shape, and found that in order for this bra to fit, ... my nipple absolutely could not sit at the apex. I'm simply just not flat above my nipple; I'm round.

    Even wit my breast sitting in the cup a bit differently to accommodate that incompatibility between my breast and the cup shape, I still found that I had some quad boob at the cup rim and some wrinkling on the bottom (though this would be the first time I've ever gotten that because the lower cup was actually too big, as opposed to too shallow).

    All around I think this is a great bra for a woman who has less upper fullness, more lower fullness, and a narrower root than me. The purple color is quite pretty, and I'm sure many women will appreciate the flower patterning on the mesh as well as the flower lace in the upper panel.

    This bra seemed a cup size smaller than labeled, so quad boob was inevitable. I didn't fill out the bottom of the cup. The underwires poked my under arms. It's just too small, possibly too closed in at the top, and the cups are too wide.

    I bought this bra thinking it would not show much under shirts or t-shirts but the flowers embroidered on the bottom part of the cups really do show, so as I was looking for a reasonable alternative to a seamless t-shirt bra this was obvioulsy not a good choice. I own a Cleo Ellie in 36H and I thought by going up a cup size I would avoid the slight spillage I get in the Ellie, but this 36HH actually did not enclose my breasts at the bottom properly and the wires at the bottom next to the gore would not lie flat against my ribcage. Also, the lace at the top of the cups cut into the breast tissue giving me quadraboob effect. The band felt quite stretchy and in fact I was able to fasten the tighest hook no problem so I suppose it would strecht too much after some wear.

    I found this bra's band quite stretchy. The cups seemed to fit nicely at first but after less than five minutes, i got quadrabood effect plus the breast tissue was not well enclosed at the bottom of the cup next to the center gore. As I have put on some weight recently I decided to go up a cup size from my Cleo Ellie but I did not expect to get a poor fit in this size. Besides, I ordered this bra mainly to wear under summer clothing as an alternative to a plain nude t-shirt bra and although the fabric is very nice, I found that the flower embroidery on the botoms of the cups really do show under shirts and t-shirts. Sad to return it but changing sizes will not help to make it work for me.
