This review is for the Bluebell colorway. It's an incredibly pretty shade of pale bluish lavender, but no sooner than the mailman delivered it to me and was on his way back down the driveway, I got to work removing the horrible bright orange trims that (in my opinion) clashed horrendously with the beautiful color! I replaced the gore bow with a lavender one and am satisfied with the finished result" alt=":)" /> Unfortunately the strap adjusters and hooks are still an obnoxious shade of orange, but you can't tell from the front so it doesn't personally bother me.

As for the fit, the band on this colorway definitely runs loose. My snug underbust is 28," but I have only ever purchased unlined Cleo bras in a 30 band because a 28 is usually way too restricting and uncomfortable. After reading jlcl119 's review, I decided to size down though and am so glad I did... it's perfect on the loosest hook. That said, I really hope it doesn't stretch out quickly. I've owned Marcie in a couple different colorways now, but have forgotten how phenomenal the shape is! Super round and lifted, lightweight and perfect beneath clothes. The wires sit and stay in my IMF, and the lace is filled out nicely without any wrinkling or overflow. There's the tiniest hint of in-cup quadding near where the three cup panels connect, but I think that's just due to the difference in firmness between the lower and upper parts of the cup. As it doesn't show under tops, it's negligible to me. Overall I'm very happy with this bra and look forward to getting lots of use out of it" alt=":)" />

    I love the changes you made with the trim and the bow, I think it's so much prettier this way! Looks great!

    I reordered this in a 28F when I found it on sale and I did the exact same thing you did. That trim was horrid, and I replaced my bow with a giant white one.

  • agcn589 Thanks! jlcl119 Oh, I really like the combo with the white bow too! No idea what motivated the choice of that terrible orange trim, but then again Cleo's design choices are sometimes a little inexplicable, for sure!
