I had this bra in 28E size and, with your great help, I decided that it would be a better fit (in the previous size I had, the band was extremely tight for me and the wires were a little bit pulled back). With this opportunity, I ordered along with Zia, one more bra: Cleo Bella balconnet in the same size, because the price was super ok and I wanted to experiment a little, knowing that Bella is a little more open on top.

As I said in the previous review,, I have even to slightly FOB breasts...or this is what I believed. Buying this two bras with that little difference (openness of the top part of cup) made me confused about my boobs shape..and that's because Bella fits me better than Zia in the upper cup.

There isn't major problems, as I have no quadboobs and no space left in the cup, but as the top edge is resting on my flesh, it seems to have a little tendency of slipping down(a few mm) and creating a slight wave. I thought that maybe I can't fill the top and I checked, but there is breast tissue, it fills very well. Maybe the double layer is sewn weirdly or..maybe it's about my boob shape as... with Bella I have absolutely no problem.I am going to tell more about Bella bra, in its category . It doesn't disturb me, I still think it's the best fit I've ever had, but as I mentioned, this really confused me so much. You can see in the pictures what I'm talking about and you can see that it's no big deal(it is hardly visible, in reality too). Oh, and this sign can be more obvious on my smaller boob than my bigger one.(smaller=the right one, bigger=the left one)

About underwires, I had this problem with 28E: they were pulled slightly by tight band. Now, it's better. The pictures are the same, but judging by the light red marks they leave around my chest, I can say they are wider by 1/2 cm than it should, on my bigger boob, which I find it minor thing too. I feel it doesn't change the support or anything. I'd wish the wires had aprox. the same width, only the ends would go straight up and not diagonally (the last aprox 1 cm of them in the armpit area).This would be perfect, so that I just ordered Freya Arabella to make a comparison between Cleo bras and Freya.

It looks nice on me, and even nicer under my clothes: great lift and round shape!! I'm impressed!

It's really nice sewn, the materials are great (I didn't give it a wash yet, but they feel sturdy and resistant).
