I have finally found the size and styles that seem to work for me. When I first got this bra, it was very snug in the band (like the other Cleos I have). An extender helped the first few weeks, as did washing it.
However, even though it was almost right, it was very loose on the upper cup (but the projection and depth were spot on, if that makes sense). I read some comments on fit issues with the Meg/Lily, where it was recommended to push the wires down in the channels so that they are pushed away from the center and more towards the outside. Genius! Gapping is gone! My breasts are very close together as well as full and soft in the center, so I'm guessing that getting those wires out of the way lets them settle into place. I went a step further when tacking down the wires and tacked together the top of the gore. On the Meg, I actually folded it in two so that the cups are practically touching at the top. It stiffened the channel where there are no wires and let my breasts settle more into place. It looks a little odd if the bra is just laying there, but really can't be seen when it is being worn (since my breast are so close together). I do believe my breasts would be happiest if the wires overlapped, but this works. With the outside wires up higher, it also helps keep the tissue from sliding out into the arm pit and stay more forward.
I am very happy with the way this bra fits now. Almost like it was made for me. Plus, it is supportive and practically disappears under clothes.
An added bonus of Cleo is that the colors and styles are fun. I have spent most of my life with very limited options. I didn't realize, either, how much my husband hated nude bras until I got my first Cleo!!
