The bra looks a lot better in person than it does in photos. The cups and gore have black net going over them and the interplay between the black and the purple looks great. The back is black rather than purple. The straps have a ruffled detail on them that makes them less boring than regular straps.
The padding seems to be the standard Cleo padding, it is similar to the Juna. However, I find that it is quite obvious where the top of the cup ends if I'm wearing a light t-shirt over it. The detailing on the top od the cup doesn't help
The band on this bra is true to size. I'm 28" around the ribs and this 28G is quite tight on me, as it should be. However, I've also noticed that the band is quite thin at the back, and this combination makes it a little uncomfortable; I'm hopeful that once the bra stretches out a little it will be a bit more comfy.
I think Freya suits me better than cleo. The wires are a little wider than they should be for my shape and this allows some of my breast tissue to hang around near my armpits.
Although this is technically a half cup, I think it offers more coverage than most of the half, cups that are out there, it's more 2/3 than 1/2. I like this because all the half-cups I have tried before seemed to offer less support than this one. The cups are pretty open on top, which is good for my breast shape since closed cups ten to cut into my breast tissue and give me quadboob.
The straps are quite thin compared to what I'm used to. They have this ruffled detail on them wich makes them quite cute, and it isn't noticeable under shirts, but it makes it much harder to adjust them. This could be viewed as a good or a bad thing. On one hand, it is hard to adjust them at first, on the other hand, they are more likely to remain at the proper length once you have adjusted them.
I think my bra sustained a little mistreatment before it got to me (this was an online order). The padding near the bottom of the left cup seems to have a bit of a crease that should not be there. It doesn't seem to affect the shape of the bra. It is hardly even noticeable when I look at it but I can feel it quite well. I decided to keep it despite this because I got it on a sale and it doesn't seem to affect the fit.
