Very pretty! It arrived with some of the red stitching around the red mesh panel unraveling (ugh). My boobs do not have the projected shaped necessary to fill out this bra. The wires and the bottom of the wire were great, but the top cut in and wrinkled. The band is firm, but less so than Cleo Marcie (6831) or Cleo George (5131) in 28E. This bra is awful for shallow shapes, but the shape is quite rounded and lifted under thick clothing. The fabric is stiff enough to not reveal how I feel about the ambient temperature.
How I made it fit:
Since I didn't want to deal with return shipping (or if the vendor refused the return because of the unraveled stitching), I sewed down the "George" fold, basically turning this 3-part balconette into a 2-part vertical seamed balconette and hiding the unraveling stitching. Depth- and shape-wise, it fits very similarly to my Cleo Juna (6461) in 28E. I would recommend this bra and alteration combo to any shallow ladies out there who have difficulty finding an unlined bra that fits.I definitely prefer the stiff fabric of this bra to the stretchy mesh of the Marcie. The alteration can make this bra a little more open on top than the Marcie (i.e. sometimes I quad in Marcie but not in my altered Meg), depending on how you do it. Also, it's been a couple of months and the band is still firm.
