I have even fullness, average projection, and roots in the averageish range. I find both the Cleo Lucy (better for FOB) and the Cleo Marcie (better for FOT) wearable, but I wish the Lucy had a bit more room in the top of the cup and the Marcie a bit less. The Lily is said to be better for breasts with even fullness, so I had high hopes for it, until I got it and realized it's just a slightly improved version of the Cleo Meg.
The navy parrot print Lily fits very similarly to the Meg in the same size (30FF), except for slightly narrower wires and less of the Meg's weird little bubble of fabric between the horizontal cup seam (which fits me smoothly) and the top of the cup (which also fits me smoothly). There's still a little bit of wrinkling in between, but not a bubble of fabric as in the Meg. The line of coral mesh that runs below the top of the cup seems like it might be cutting in the tiniest bit, but the top of the cup itself does not cut in. I think you'd need short roots, a fair amount of top-center fullness, and high-set breasts for the Lily to fit right. It's not quite as tricky to fit as the Meg, but it's still tricky.
The center gore is fine in both height and width, but the wires are too low under my arms. I'd like a couple more inches of wire under my arms in the Lily. It looks fine under clothes (rounded, with none of the Meg's "elf-shoe" effect) and I got it on sale, so I'll keep it, but I won't be buying this cut again. So my search for the perfect even fullness/average projection bra goes on!
