  1. Band is quite tight....I can fasten it, but when wearing the bra all day I prefer to use an extender to extend by one hook.

    The cups are just a tiny bit too big for me, but I fear going to an FF would give me the quad look. If I do a larger "scoop" than normal I am able to fill the cups, so I guess it probably actually fits fine. I had to put a small ankle sock in the cup of my slightly smaller side to even out the asymmetry, but after doing that it fits nicely.

    The center gore doesn't quite touch my sternum (it ... sits out enough that I can slide my pinky finger in), but even so it still gives a very good amount of support. If I push the gore in so it is touching my sternum, I found that it actually makes the cups fit just about perfect. (I'm wondering if the center gore could be bent slightly in, much the same way as some people bend wires away from their body.)

    The straps are set pretty far apart, on the edges of the cups. As I have narrow rounded shoulders this design isn't ideal for me... I haven't had a strap slip yet, however I definitely feel potential for slippage. For a full day's wear I use my normal "strap holder" accessory in the back, which makes it work fine.

    Profile view is very nice, with a great lift and rounded shape. View from the front is not wide at all. The seams can tend to show through certain shirts, but are invisible with others. I found several t-shirts in my closet that would work fine with it, so it is definitely a candidate for a t-shirt bra, at least for certain shirts. Also worth mentioning is that the colored stitching at the top of the cup is fairly flat, I didn't have any problems with it showing through the shirts I tried it with.

    UPDATE: The Ariana has become one of my favorite bras. I can wear it all day and never have to "adjust" things. I have slightly bent the wires in the gore area in towards my sternum, and this has helped with the non-touching gore. Very comfortable and a great shape. Really like this bra!!!!

    Fits

    I bought this bra because it is the same as the Leila which fitted me amazingly.

    The Ariana fits me very well also. It's very comfortable and encases all my side tissue. Love the thin foam padding as it gives a great shape! It gives me nice cleavage too.

    As in the photos, there is minor wrinkling on my smaller right breast, but it's not a problem for me. One complaint is that I do have to adjust myself at least once during the day. I think the fabric may be a little stretchy for me.

    A great one for wide shallow breasts! :)

    Fits

    (This is my first bra since losing a few pounds which must have been completely breast weight)

    This is my first bra at this new size, and it fits great. It supports my breasts and gives a sexy cleavage that is more subtle than two breasts mashed together in a fake bum sort of look.

    There is no gap at the top of the bra, even when I lay down or or lean forward. (My smaller breast has a bit of a gap, but a small insert pad will hopefully fix this.) The top of the bra lays flat against my breast, with no quad boob (at least right ... out of the bag, and it doesn't appear quad boob will develop during the day by falling out or settling).

    This bra is very comfortable. It doesn't dig in anywhere and I don't feel the need to bend the underwires at all.

    The underwire encompasses my breast fully and doesn't go too far around my side either.

    The band is a little loose, but after reading on here that people thought it was a tight band, I think I really just need the equivalent of a 26 band. I wanted to fasten it on the middle or tightest hook immediately, but I will leave it on the loosest and see how much it rides up sp that I don't stretch it out too fast.

    It is really nice having a bra that properly fits again (well, fits the one boob properly. But that's my best option for now). I'm still quite surprised how a five pound weight loss translates to a 2-3 cup down size.

    32FF

    Didn't fit

    Ordered three sizes for comparison. Find other reviews here: 30FF (http://bra.pe/SmX/) and 32G (http://bra.pe/SmZ/).

    This bra is available 28-38 D-G. Cleo's current season I find fitting more consistently true to G-cup in size than previously. See: Lucy SS12-Yellow 30G (http://bra.pe/R4D/) and Alexa 30G (http://bra.pe/R2w/).

    My anticipated size 30G was out of stock so I decided to play with the sizing a bit and see if anything else might work well. Based on one review I thought instead of the cup fitting well that it might even be a bit larger so maybe one size down could work.

    The 30FF band is nice and ... fitted but the cup is just a bit smaller and seems a true FF. 32FF is nearly a perfect bra save the fact I went straight away to the last hook. And based on all my research as well as personal experience Cleo bras are known for being stretchy. Sasha (http://bra.pe/S1A/) stretched out to the final hook in 6 months! :( 32G is of course too big in the band for me although the cup is okay if just a tiny bit wider than necessary. I wouldn't say it is uncomfortable. If it were made in a slightly smaller equivalent of say 30GG I would likely be hard-pressed to decide between a 30G and imaginary-30GG in this style. It covers more on top, for sure.

    Side wings are actually quite low and remain a pretty perfect and comfortable height throughout all three bra sizes. Cups give a beautiful rounded shape on all three. Straps are the same exact width at 1.6cm. The only small difference I found between the three was the 30FF gore width is about .2cm wider, very negligible but worthy of pointing out.

    Although highly likely to be too-small-in-the-cup I wish I could find a 30G and 28G ("sister" to 30FF) for comparison. I hope to find at least find a brand new 30G and hope it fits the best. :)

    Super disappointed to find out from customer service that Figleaves only stocked 28 D-F and 30 D-FF totally missing out on 3 cup sizes! :( :(

    Purchased & Returned early-May '12 from Figleaves. Measured unstretched.

    28E

    Didn't fit

    Despite bratabase indicating that this bra "didn't fit", I'd say it fits pretty well. The band is extremely tight, coming in at 22" unstretched! It is more comfortable with an extender for me. The top of the cups fit very well. There is a bit of side boob/under arm fat, which I think might mean it's a little narrow? Or perhaps the side wings are too low. I am not sure. I do like bras with a little padding like this one, as I have large nipples. I am shallow-ish, wide rooted, and bottom heavy.
    This bra is not itchy or irritating anywhere.

    Update 12/28/15: yes, the cups are ... a little narrow. The side boob was diminished by loosening the straps, but I can still feel the end of the outer edge of the wires press into my side boob. I think going up a cup would make the cup overall too wide. Maybe I'll try to stretch the wire. The rest of the bra fits great!

    Update: widened the wires a bit and now the bra fits like a dream. Great shape. I'm committed to the bra and got the matching underwear :-)

    Update 9 may 2016: I think the cups are too low on the outsides. I'm still getting a teeny bit of side boob. The wires are wide enough now but still a bit of spillage

    Didn't fit

    The cups are way too big on me. I think if this came in 28C it would fit me, as the shape isn't too much of an issue. I'd say if you're on the smaller side of 28D, it would be too big. The band and the wires are okay.

    A really cute bra with a cute design. It fits very nicely over my breasts, and makes them look more alive.

    28F

    Didn't fit

    I bought this bra because I read that it was the same cut as the Cleo Rihanna, which was slightly too small for me in 28E. Sadly this one is too big, the cups aren't filled at the top and come up too high on my chest. If you have fuller-on-top breasts, this may work well for you.

    • Do you still have the bra? If you do, I might be interested in buying it :) I find it very hard to get a hold of padded/lined bras in 28F, which I believe is my usual size. The fact that you suspect this bra to be good for full on top boobs made me even more interested, as I have super full-on-top boobs! :)
