Didn't fit

What a strangely shaped little bra. The band is definitely tight for a 30 - for once it's a 30 band I ordered based on reviews saying it runs tight and I don't regret it - it most definitely runs very tight. I personally like having tight bands, and I do feel this is material that will stretch fairly easily. The other Cleos I've tried - Juna and Jude - were not this tight in the band, I needed 28 bands in those.

PROS: Coral color is pretty and the little bow detail on the gore is cute. Material is very soft, cups are molded but not overly stiff. Straps are fully adjustable.

CONS: The shape... is so weird... something about the top of the cups doesn't agree with me. It gaps on both sides but it's like they are too tall rather than too big. I feel like this bra is asking for fullness on top that I just don't have, and I'd do better with shorter cups. I could not have gone down a cup size though. If I really scoop & swoop I fill out the top briefly, but my boobs settle back down into the cups and the gapping returns. Also, there's a small bit of empty space down the inside edges of the cups, where it's like the bra material floats away from my breast. I believe I've stumbled upon a bra that has cups set too close together for my boobs. The wires are hella wide, and it's insanely shallow. Like, I had an inch of wrinkling in the bottoms of these cups.

I'd highly recommend this as THE t-shirt bra to try for those with wide roots, a shallow shape, even or FOT, and close set boobs. I can see why it's called the anti-Deco.

  • I have splayed-set shallow breasts and am bottom-heavy...but I don't get empty space in the bra. Of course, the bra could run differently in a 36 band than a 30?
    (I did not know Neve and Deco were archenemies! I wear them both.)

  • I can believe the Cleo Neve's cups are too tall for you. I find Cleo's cups in general to be higher coverage than I want. This has been my experience with most UK brands.

  • faustineli hey, if they work for you they work! They're just totally different shapes. To me the Deco is narrow & deep and the Neve is wide & shallow.

    learningaboutbras it's so weird... I have about 1/2" of bra cup, from the top where the straps are attached all the way down the inside edge of the cup to the gore, that is not touching my skin. On either side. I'm gonna have to post a picture or something. I definitely fill out the bottom, sides, and middle of the cups, it's just the inside edge. But then I look on the outside edges and I don't think I'd want them any shorter or narrower - they don't rub my armpits like my Charlotte-from-armpit-hell did. This is not something my Jude does, and don't think my Juna does it but my Juna is a complete shape mismatch so there's that.

    lcl0706 I keep hearing that Deco is narrow and deep, and I feel like it is a bit narrow. As for depth, I don't get the ZOMG cleavage some do, but I fill the cups fine- unlike most of Freya's other bras. Headscratcher.
    I recommend trying Neve on for almost anyone who's a 28 band even if it's a shoot-the-moon scenario because goshdarnit those bands are *tight*.

  • Yes, it is tight. My UB is 27.5" and I probably could have done a 28G, maybe even a 28FF, but I would have needed an extender for the first couple of wears. As it is, this 30 band stretches to 28.5" and I've got it comfortably hooked on the loosest hook and have worn it all day. The band should last me a while. I can see how a 28 band would be great for someone who has troubles with 28 bands being too loose.
