Used to fit
I. LOVE. THIS. BRA. Holy moly. I was not one of the women who thought that this bra was gorgeous in photos. But that color, and that eyelash lace, when you put it on your body it is GORG. As soon as I put this bra on I was ordering the bottoms to go with it. This is the best fitting bra I have ever had.
The 4-part cup is heaven. So much immediate projection, that wire does not budge from my IMF. The width of the cup is spot on for me. I get a beautiful naturally rounded shape from this bra, not a spherical one that Cleo is known for. The top is quite closed off, not quite as much as my CK Bardot, but pretty close. You're going to need very FOB breasts or short roots to make this one work.
If I'm being 100% honest the cup is a teeny hair too small, but you can hardly notice. I have very short roots and it still just barely cuts in sometimes, but not enough that you can tell or that it bothers me. I also get a little bit of wrinkling near the stitching at the top of the cup, but not because it's too big, it seems like a tiny construction flaw maybe? As started in another review, the wires (at least in this size) are shorter than the wire channels by over half an inch, even though the side boning is as tall as the channels. It doesn't bother me, but I find it weird. The sides are quite tall, and that may bother many people, but I don't even notice. I think I am rather low set in addition to having short roots. My tissue starts almost below armpit level. Ideally I would have a slightly narrower or lower gore, because the wires sit on a tiny bit of tissue right at the center, but this doesn't bother me.
This bra may have single-handedly converted me to longlines. It took a couple minutes to get used to it, but I adore the extra security. My breasts aren't going anywhere in this thing. Honestly this bra is so comfortable I didn't even want to take it off to measure it.
