Used to fit

Cleo Marcie gives me a super uplifted round shape. The bottom of the cups is a bit more shallow than for example on a Cleo Alexa. However the top of the cups is very roomy which is good for my full-on-top boobs. The cups do run quite generous since I need more like a 30K / 32JJ these days, the 32J still fits.
I get some kind of in-cup-quadraboob which as far as I know is an issue that is quite common for this bra. In my case the slight in-cup-quadraboob is not visible under a t-shirt therefore I just ignore it.
The band is quite firm but I guess it tends to stretch out quite fast. The band fits well on the loosest hook but when I wear it a second time (before washing) I need to move to the middle hook.

What I didn't like:
The shoulder straps are too seperated and tend to cut into my arms. (However I have this problem with almost every bra) The edge of the straps feels razor-sharp when cutting in. (why it only gets a "meh" for comfort)
The bra could be so much more supportive if the band was wider & it would have a 3 hook fastening! Dear Cleo, please consider adding 3 -hook fastening on your GG+ cups!
So I really like the looks of this bra & the shape it gives me, but It won't become an everyday bra since I prefer wider bands + 3 hook fastening on my everyday bras.

This bra is not owned any more
