    28H

    Didn't fit

    The Rihanna bra is based on the shape and style of the Juna bra by Cleo. The Juna comes in Ivory, Nude and Black and the Rihanna is a Teal/Pink/Grey print that reminds me of a pixelated 80s video game... or a 80s watercolour. I can't place it but I like it :)

    I tried on the Juna and Rihanna in a million sizes and couldn't get the shape to work on me - puzzled the hell out of two fitters - and by luck tried on a 28H.

    I usually wear a 28 or 30 band in Cleo and in this style I most ... definitely needed the 28 band - the fabric is soft and stretchy and if you're between sizes definitely go the smaller size. The Juna model feels loose on me in a 28 band, but the Rihanna feels good in the 28. The fitter said that the Juna runs a bit large in the band due to slightly stretchy fabric.

    This shape - padded balconettes that smash your boobs to your chest and just end without a 3rd, horizontal top section - work terribly on my shape. The Juna and Rihanna was no exception.

    Both the 28GG and the 30G (my "normal" sizes) give me OK coverage but the moulded top of the cup kind of cuts in a bit leaving a lot of fleshy stuff pushed up against the lace edge in the middle but the lace kind of poofs out towards the center gore. It's a mess. And if I bent over I'd start to fall out.

    The lace edge on the Rihanna is tighter than the lace edge on the Juna. Going up a cup size gave me more coverage with the cup ending a bit higher up the breast allowing the tighter lace edge to hold me in place a bit. The Juna lace just kind of stuck upwards and didn't follow the contours of my chest at all.

    The fitter (the Juna was her favourite bra) assured me that end of the moulded cup and the lace edge soften up and sit better after a few washes. Will have to see how that goes.

    I found that in my normal size - the 28GG - the top edge of the bra just finished at a bad place on my shape.

    This is my first and only 28H in my wardrobe.

    I also find that the straps on the Juna/Rihanna very wide on my narrow shoulders. That said, this is nicely padded around the underwires so it should be comfortable to wear.


    *Update*
    I wore this for a day of shopping with my niece (a toddler) and my sister and I found I kept falling out of the top of this bra. It shows under white/pale tops. Good for a day at the office wearing black perhaps? Or on the weekend? Not a great everyday bra for me!

    • Thanks a lot for sharing your full review and comparison with other Cleo bras! I am looking forward to trying this bra but puzzled about the fit of current Cleo styles as many ladies say they all run a little different from each other.. even "style sisters" in different names/patterns. :)

    • That's true - but I think Freya, Panache, Fantastie all differ just as much. They keep the same styles but sometimes just changing the fabric can alter the fit - this fit between the Juna and the Rihanna which look and feel identical save for the pattern fabric used was a perfect example of this!

    28H

    Didn't fit

    ***Please note: For all intent and purpose this 28h bra fits but I will keep the accurate "band is too tight" until it stretches out.

    This is a comparison review between 28GG (http://bra.pe/ReB/) and 28H.

    Band length: 59.7cm
    Cup width: 14.7cm
    Cup depth: 29.5cm
    Wire length: 31.1cm
    Cup separation: 1.7cm
    Strap width: 1.9cm

    Quality: 5/5
    Comfort: 5/5
    Appearance: 5/5


    This is the only print to come along since the plaids that has really caught my attention. I had to try it on! Purchased 28GG/28H for comparison. Once upon a time I almost bought AW10's Sadie 30G in Purple Plaid (see review here: http://bra.pe/RGu/). Those cups were just a bit too small and now that I ... think of it they were quite similar to Freya's Padded Half Cups. Except there is this bit of loose lace trim on these Juna-style Cleo bras. Well, the 30G Sadie felt just a bit too small in the cup and here the 28GG Rihanna feels just like that but firmer in the band. The 28H (tighter band equivalent of a 30GG and one-cup bigger than the original Purple Plaid Sadie was made, she stopped at a G-cup!) This is my ideal fit: firm in the back, nice little lift and all-rounded shape. The lace does stick up a bit on my smaller breast but flattens underneath a t-shirt. And in a gorgeous 80's video-game type print to boot! Reds, blues, greys and white glory. I will keep an eye out for more wonderful patterns in the future now that I know my Juna-size. Next, I'm ready to try an actual Juna from the core line! :)

    Measured immediately before wearing.
    Purchased late-June 2012.

  3. This was the second bra in a 2-bra grab bag. I had requested this style because it had almost worked for me in the past in another size/color. I didn't expect to like this bra because the pattern is so far from what I'm usually drawn to, but somehow it managed to charm me. The pink, while prominent, is balanced very nicely by the black, light blue, white and grey. From a distance, the pattern is almost floral, although up close it is strikingly geometric.

    In this size the bra is quite comfortable, with none of the poking wires and painful straps that had so ... plagued me when I tried this style previously in the wrong size. I get no spillage out of the top or sides, the straps stay put but don't dig in, and the band is nice and firm. The shape is very round from every direction and I feel very supported all around. The center gore comes up quite high on my chest, higher than I am used to, so that may be a problem for some people. Fortunately, the center gore is very narrow towards the top, so even my close-set boobs aren't too bothered.

    One thing that may bother/bewilder some people is that when I tried this style previously in a too-large band and too-small cups, the lace along the tops of the cups lay flat against my breasts, while in the correct size, the lace sticks out. Strange, but true. Fortunately, it's a simple fix if you're handy with a needle & thread. And if not, the lace is not visible under heavier fabric (such as t-shirt jersey) and the bra is way too colorful to be worn under anything thinner!

    EDIT: After wearing this bra for a few hours, I think that a 32GG would be a better fit for me. This bra runs very true to size, so on my 32 inch ribcage it's a bit too loose and I have to adjust every few hours. Other than that, I pronounce this bra a marvelous success!

    30GG

    Didn't fit

    Damn it, I thought I remembered how this style used to fit me. Well, I was close, but not close enough. Band is as comfortable as I remember. It's pretty enough to suit me. But the cups are one size too small. It is pretty comfortable altogether, but I'm super close set, with zero space between, and this has a tall, very firm gore.

  6. When I tried this on yesterday I really thought it didn't fit anywhere near decently. I decided to try on my bras again and this seems to fit better than I initially thought. The cup part fits decently, but the lace part does gap, although it isn't visible under shirts. If I keep this I may try to alter the lace somehow maybe sew it into the gore a bit.

    • This actually fits you really well. It's a Juna-clone, and Juna's well known major design flaw is the gapping lace. If the lace lays flat, the bra is too small. So this is your correct size in the bra, but that lace flappin-in-the-breeze would drive me nuts too.

    30D

    Didn't fit

    I think this bra would work for me in the right size. However, it runs super small in the cup and a hair stretchy in the band. I was quadboobing out of this thing before I even tried to scoop and swoop. Afterwards I was just spilling out of it (as much as I can really spill out of anything). I think this bra would be comfy as it doesn't have side boning and the elastic is less firm than some bras. I like the padded seamed cups too. I would love to track down a Juna or Juna clone in a 30DD or even a 30E.

    This bra fits similarly to Juna. The band is fairly stretchy. The cups are fairly shallow and wide, but fortunately the strap placement is ok. My only complaint is the center gore wires are slightly pokey through the fabric.

  9. this is based off of Juna, just like Poppy. i got this as 'well loved' off braswap, after having tried the Poppy sister cut in a 34F and needing a smaller band. surprisingly, it fits pretty well! im not crazy about the color, but im also not at the point where im super picky; im just trying to pin down a shape that works still. at this point I've only worn this bra for a few hours, and will update if anything changes.

    the band on this is perfect on the loosest hooks, furthering my thoughts that i need a 32 band in some brands now, as ive ... been between a 32 and 34 band lately. the cups have a single vertical seam and give me a gently rounded shape. the straps are still too far apart for me, but i dont find them to be chafing because of how well broken in this bra is. they do still cause gaping when they get caught in my underarm, mostly near the top corner and more so on my shallower and wider right side. i get no quadboob, but like the other Juna cuts, the lace on this doesn't lay flat even if the cup does. i haven't noticed it much under shirts, but it does sit up off the skin a bit.

    the cups on this have also softened in their shape from what my brand new Poppy looks like, which i expected and am super glad about. Poppy's cups are very stiff, and its nice to know this bra will become less so with a few washes.

    i hope to alter this eventually to get the straps to a better place, so that i dont have visible gaping under clothes when i move my arms.
