FYI: I am evenly full to FoT, very wide set and a bit splayed, on the shallow side, with short roots.
WOW. This is such a different, but near PERFECT fit! I am so surprised!
I bought this from another bratabaser, still with tags on, and it is my first attempt at a Cleo.
I had heard that Cleos are more narrow and projected than my usual half cup Freyas, but the measurements were not far off from my best fitting bras. However, the look this bra gives me is wildly different! It is the first bra that manages to push my super wide set boobs inside my frame. The gore is narrower than I'm used to, but especially under striped clothes (see pics) it is good to have my boobs a bit closer together and inside my frame, as they tend to make me look super wide and massive on top with other bras.
The bra has a lot more projection than say my Freya Marvel (which is great on me but a smidge shallow), and when I look down at my boobs they are definitely sticking out much more. Much to my surprise, I could get all my side breast tissue in these narrow wires with some proper swooping & scooping, and even though the wires are narrow for me, they are not uncomfortable.
From the side, this gives me the green, elf shoe shape you guys are raving about, and I agree it is a good profile! Well fitting bras usually give me super round shapes, so this is a new experience for me.
The cup fabric is sturdy and non stretchy, much like my beloved Marvel, and feels very supportive. The mesh upper part fits very well, not a quadraboob in sight (which was my fear with this bra), and no gaping whatsoever. I only see a teeny tiny wrinkle in the mesh right where the mesh meets the cup, but this seems a construction rather than a fit issue (see pic). The band is also perfect; tight but comfortable.
In all, I am very impressed with this one! It is a great bra for under clothes that normally make me look wide, and because it pushes my boobs close together, it even gives me a bit more cleavage, which is also rare for me. However, under other clothes I miss my hourglass shape a little, as my wide boobs balance out my wide hips, but oh well, I have plenty of bras for that look already.
I am really suprised that this good fit can give me such a different look than my other well fitting bras! My husband even noticed the difference, although he thinks it makes my boobs look small (which is not a good thing in his book https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />.
