The Cleo Jude is a moulded cup, plunge bra, similar to the Deco in that. However, the similarities to the Deco end there. While the Deco has a rounded, uplifting shape (causing my bust to look artificial), the Jude allows a more natural shape. When first seeing this, I thought I would love the bra, as I strongly prefer a natural shape.
Unfortunately, the fit of this bra just isn't up to snuff. After one wearing, I'm already tightening the band and still not finding the kind of support I'd like. I'm left with a feel that the support comes more from compression than from uplifting. Perhaps this is due to the cups being a touch too small, but it's not available beyond a G. I'd expect a larger chest/ribcage to find a better fit, and if between sizes or near the tighter edge of your size, get a smaller band.
The straps irritate the front/side of my arms, when they reach to go over my shoulders. This is typical for Panache (and Panache designed) bras. Additionally, when I reach, the underwires poke my underarms painfully. This is not typical of Panache bras for me.
I love the natural shape of this bra, and I appreciate how the lines are smooth under clothing (even the slight lace trim at the top of the cups hide easily under clothes). I'd like a less stretchy/tighter band, and of course I'd like a Freya shape rather than Panache shape.
