bought this forever ago and never wore it, finally time to review it and pass it on! Its not my favorite color scheme, but it was on sale and at the time i bought it, i fit into the sister cuts of it well, so i was after it more as a duplicate. it didnt fit me from the start, so its been in my bra drawer unloved. its not a super loud obnoxious plaid, more muted and with a faded effect in places.
the material of this bra seems very stiff, much like how my Juna was. im guessing that it would break in after a few washes, like my Rhianna. the band is firm at 33 inches, but would likely loosen with wear, so i would suggest getting your usual size and wearing an extender the first few times. the straps are half adjustable, with the back half more stretchy than the front. like most half cups, they are placed a bit wide for me, which is a huge peeve i cant usually get over. the gore seems slightly overlapped, although im not sure if that is a defect or on purpose. its a bit too high for me and presses painfully, another big no-no.
unlike most of the cleo bras, this one has no empty wire channel, the wire fills it all the way from gore to armpit. the wires are narrow at 5.5 inches, so that is a plus if you need narrow. im not sure if i do anymore, since some bras seem too narrow at 6 inches but these seem fine at 5.5. i imagine its more about the shape of the wires- these are a very U shape. the cups quad on be a little bit on my larger side, and the lace lays flat, which is a sign in the Juna family that the cups are too small.
This bra is not owned any more
