The first thing I noticed about this bra is that the mesh is nowhere near as soft as Cleo's. It doesn't feel as nice on my skin, but it's not so rough that it's uncomfortable. Just something to be aware of if your skin is particularly sensitive. It's also much more sheer, by which I mean *completely* sheer. And shamelessly fluorescent green! I'm half surprised it doesn't glow in the dark.
The band is perfectly true to size -- it stretches to exactly 75cm (30in) which is too loose for me, but close enough on the tightest hook. I may have to alter it after like a year, depending ... on how quickly it stretches, but it works for now.
The 30C cups are definitely too small. The 30D fits much better, I think mostly because the cups are taller, which cuts in less. It wrinkles a bit on my smaller breast, but looks like a decent fit otherwise. I'm also very happy about how narrow the cups are, about 11cm in both sizes Perfect.
I appreciate the plain black straps, and the fact that the cups are fairly smooth under clothes, because it means I can match the bra with any black panties and wear it with most of my tops. Speaking of panties, I got the matching thong in both S and XS as well (why not?). I would NOT recommend it. The mesh fabric in the XS lies smooth on me, but the black elastic waistband digs in enough to be slightly uncomfortable. On the S, the elastic is just the right level of snug, but the mesh is visibly wrinkly, and the crotch is longer than it really needs to be. Weird. Honestly not worth the matchy-matchy happiness.
Either way, I'll definitely be keeping the 30D bra and probably the XS thong.
