Used to fit

My measurements for reference: snug 32, BTT 30.5, standing 38.5, leaning 41, lying 39. Pendulous, projected, narrowish shortish root, FOB/even (I think). I have a lot of outside fullness.

Well, this is a very cute little bra. I like the parrot print, which is actually much more subdued than my crazy neon Lucy or yellow Marcie. It's a very lightweight mesh construction, but damn, it does the job. Why can't every bra just lift like this? All my Cleos do provide a great profile, but this one is the best so far.

The band is comfortably snug on the loosest hooks, not like my Marcie which still practically cuts me in half after six months wear. The wires are pretty much the perfect width. The gore tacks. The straps are nicely placed and fully adjustable. I fill the cups nicely, although I have to swoop and scoop more enthusiastically on my smaller side.

There is virtually no wrinkling in the bottom of the cups. The most amazing thing, though (to me), is that they don't ride down at all throughout the day. I guess I finally got the magic combination of wire width and projection. I think this is why I find this bra much more comfortable than either Lucy or Marcie, because the wires don't move around and cause chafing. They don't seem to be any more padded or anything. The band under the cups doesn't even curl up. That might just be a first for me.

Alas, it is not perfect." alt=":(" /> Thanks to the combination of Cleo construction and my soft tissue, I still get the in-cup quad boob going on. I wish Cleo would figure this out and fix it. People with squishy boobs deserve better!

Except for that, I do love this bra. I think it is my best fit so far. So of course they're discontinuing it. Story of my life." alt=":)" />

    Along with the Panache Jasmine, the Lily was the best fit I had until I tried the Panache Envy. (All in 30FF, so we're pretty close in size.)

    Lily's wires ride down a bit on me (my biggest bra-fitting challenge), but my Envy wires don't budge all day, due to sufficient depth at the bottom of the cups. (The Envy is similar in construction to the Jasmine, which does ride down on me a bit, except for having that extra projection at the bottom.)

    So Envy and Jasmine might be worth a try, if you haven't already.

  • I actually do have an Envy in 32F which fits really well, too. (I'm a terrible slacker about adding my bras into Bratabase.) The shape is great right when I put it on. The only thing I find is that the material is a little too stretchy and tends to lose shape over the day. The Envy cut with stiffer fabric, but still the stretch lace on top, would probably be the best of all possible worlds.

    Also, there's a Jasmine I'm watching on eBay, but I sort of promised my husband I wouldn't buy any more bras before Christmas. ha ha
