    I ordered this bra along with Zia (30DD), one more bra: Cleo Bella balconnet in the same size, because the price was super ok and I wanted to experiment a little, knowing that Bella is a little more open on top.

    As I said in the previous reviews http://bra.pe/SDQq/ and http://bra.pe/SDQw/, , I have even to slightly FOB breasts...or this is what I believed. Buying this two bras with that little difference (openness of the top part of cup) made me confused about my boobs shape..and that's because Bella fits me better than Zia in the upper cup.

    As you can see in the pics, ... the fit is really great!! I fill completely the entire cup, its bottom, its top. The outer edge of the top isn't resting on my flesh like the Zia's and the lace forms no slight wrinkles.

    The appearance under clothes is soooo beautiful!! My chest never looked that great in an unpadded bra, seriously. Even my mother couldn't believe that I bought soft bra (without padding). Shape is very round and lifted and it looks like the bra is enhacing the size.

    Underwires:I have this problem with Zia too (Bella has identical wires), and I concluded that I will have it with the majority of Cleo bra: judging from the light red marks they leave around my chest, I can say they are wider by 1/2 cm than it should, on my bigger boob. I find it to be minor thing as I feel it doesn't change the support or anything. I'd wish the wires had aprox the same width, only the ends would go straight up and not diagonally (the last aprox 1 cm of them in the armpit area).This would be perfect, so that I just ordered Freya Arabella to make a comparison between Cleo bras and Freya's.


    Also, the materials are excellent, very sturdy and resistant.

    Used to fit

    This bra is an unpadded balconette. The print is beautiful, bright and colorful. The upper part of the cups is lacy turquoise with yellow embroidery.

    The shape and cut is NOT exactly the same as the Marcie. Underwire and band construction are similar, but Bella has an additional seam in the upper lace section of the cup, which makes it more closed on top.

    I have even fulness and the lace wrinkled a little when I put it on (Libby described this as 'George-wrinkles', after the Cleo George Balconette (5731), the first Cleo bra with this cut). I get no wrinkles on the Marcie though.

    Also, Bella seems to have a bit more cup depth than the Marcie, so it's ever-so-slightly more 'tubular shaped'.

    Perfect fit! Love the design, and it is very comfortable. The only issue is I am not used to a high centre gore (since I was mostly wearing plunge bras with a thin centre gore). Other than that, I LOVE this bra.

    It fits a bit better now, so I've kept this one. While I still don't fill the thinner part of the cups at the top 100 per cent, my boobs fill the bottom of the cups fine now. Under a shirt it looks fine.
    I absolutely agree with bracrastination , by the way. Bella and Marcie are definitely different and the Marcie would by my no. 1 recommendation for wide root shallow boobs among unpadded Cleos.
    (In the Marcie this size fits me as if it was made for me, and right before my period my blue 30DD Marcie is even a bit small at the top.)

    Didn't fit

    This is such a fun bra! If only the wires were a little longer I think it would be a perfect fit for me. I adjusted the straps to be as long as possible, and they're comfortable but very snug. I could use another 1/2-1 inch of length on them. This bra provides a nice round shape and it seems very solidly constructed. The satiny print used for the cups has essentially no stretch to it, and the aqua fabric used in the wings is double layered. The netting at the top of the cups is also doubled and the top layer is embroidered with doves and butterflies.
