I'm so on the fence about this bra. There are a lot of things I like about it, and it hits all the 'fit' checkmarks. It was the best out of a pile of bras (Juna, Rhea, and the Aqua Maddie) I ordered in various sizes to try from Breakout, and my husband convinced me to keep it.
I love orange, and I love that the bra is smooth with minimal details. The band is characteristic of Panache/Cleo - tightish for a 28, and fits me ok (I feel best in tight 28s and 26s)
The thing I'm on the fence about is the shape, and the way the top of the cups looks under shirts. The top edge of the bra, while not quadding, definitely shows under snug shirts. The overall shape seems to push out wide and has a general flattening effect on me.
I wore the Freya Deco Half cup in a few sizes over a year or so? Aside from the band being too big, It always gaped in the center, near the gore, which puzzled me. Maddie fits great around the center gore, but tends to gape occasionally around the strap / opposite edge of the cup, near the wire.
If I weren't dabbling in 55-band bras from Ewa and Comexim, this would probably be my best-fitting bra, but now I don't think the shape is right for me.
Keeping it for now because it hits all the fit checkmarks, and ..orange. (=
This bra is not owned any more
