- Center gore comfort:
- Underwires dig into sternum, because they are too high
- Strap separation:
- Are too far apart
- Top of the cup:
- Wrinkles, can't quite fill it
- Band fit:
- I can fasten it, but it feels too tight

This was my first attempt at a bra that actually fits (along with a 30F - Freya » Deco Moulded Half Cup Bra (4232) ...so I used an average of a bunch of bra calculators (non-plus 4" ones) to get 30F (but I knew going into it that it might not fit bc a) I'm in between measurements and b) got a range of measurements from a 30FF to a 32DD. So, given this range, I think this was a pretty good first try--not perfect, but definitely close.
The Pros: smooth under clothes (with the slight exception of the trim showing under clingier fabrics). Comfortable: the gore tacks, doesn't poke at the top and is close enough for my close-set breasts; the underwire goes up high enough, but does not jab; straps are fully adjustable; the bra doesn't move around.
The Cons: [mostly due to the wrong size, not related necessarily to the bra itself] although the underwire sits perfectly around my outer breasts, the top of the cups where the straps meet is just a bit too wide and digs into the muscle/tendons of the inside of my shoulders/underarm area; I fill the bottom but have some gapping at the top (probably can pinch 1/2" of the cup right beside the straps); band is too tight, must wear an extender (I use 1 hook or 2 if I have to wear it for more than a few hours); the nude shade is a bit too dark for me, not a true nude for my light/pale skin tone (but might be good for medium skin tones); the straps are tan--and don't fade as much as I would prefer under strappier shirts).
I'm between a 29.5 and a 31-ish, depending on the day/time of the month, and definitely found the 32E much more comfortable than this 30F. [Although this is my first "true"-ish size bra, so it might also be a bit of a comfort issue related to the very loose, stretchy 34C bras I'm used to wearing.] Regardless, it tight enough that it cause a great deal of bulging on my back. Stretch-wise, it seems kind of stretchy, more so that than the 30F freya mentioned above (even though that's technically longer in the band, in stretchiness alone this Cleo Maddie seems proportionately more stretchy.)
