I tried a few different sister fits of the Bella, but unfortunately none of them work for me. Its absolutely gorgeous though, im so sad! it has to be one of the prettiest bras ive seen- i especially love the teal mesh with yellow embroidery at the top. The colors are very spring-like and young without feeling little-girl.
The band feels firm, and ive come to understand that cleo bands tend to feel very tight at first but then relax and are comfortably snug. I can see where the shape of these Cleos get such rave reviews- im definitely brought very in and up! Its almost a little ridiculous =P The cups gape at the top and in general seem to have too much space. Im not surprised, as i don't have much upper fullness (large-shallow is a term ive recently learned for my shape). There's also space near the apex.
The gore does dig, and feel uncomfortable, but its not as bad as the Marcie. The gore also seems to not want to lay flat- it makes a little point instead, if that makes sense? i can poke it down and it will lay flat, but as i haven't worn it other than to try it on, i can say if it would work its way back out. The straps are of course a little too far apart, and dig a bit into my arm pits. Its a balconnet, so i figured that would be the case.
in a perfect world- this design would be on something more like the Juna so i could wear it! a girl can dream https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
