For background, I have a 33" loose underbust/32" snug underbust, so I sometimes fit into a 32FF and sometimes in a 34F depending on the bra. I couldn't find the Cleo Skye in 34F, so I only tried it in 32FF.

I picked up the Cleo Skye fully expecting it not to work for me because I see it recommended for full-on-top shapes and I thought I was full-on-bottom, but I was surprised. It fits me quite well. The band stretches enough to be comfortable for me. The gore tacks slightly harder than I'd prefer, but I have definitely experienced worse. The cups fit me well and give me a slightly rounded, natural shape. The seams don't appear to show through my shirt, but nipples may because they don't fall behind a seam and the fabric is thin. I think the light fabric will be especially nice for staying cool in the heat of summer. Finally, I often have trouble with Cleo and Panache bras digging into my armpit area, but this bra doesn't seem to do that. Again, I think the fabric helps here - it does come up into the area that often gets irritated, but the fabric is soft and doesn't feel like it is digging in. Overall, the Cleo Skye was definitely a pleasant surprise.

I have mixed feelings about the color combo. I don't hate it, but it feels a bit tweeny and I think the bright pink straps may show through lighter fabrics. However, I like the fit enough that I'm keeping the bra anyway.

Update: After wearing this bra consistently for a while, the gore feels much better. It seems to have softened up and become more comfortable. This is definitely my go-to bra now.

  • I love the colours!! It looks great on you.

  • If the gore feels super firm you can use just one row of an extender to make the band more comfy until you break it in. I find a painful gore is caused by either a too tight band or a too wide gore and the extender generally helps a lot.
