Beautiful and super comfy. The gore is a bit high, but i didn't really start to notice it until the very end of a 12 hr day. I do need to alter the band to make it smaller and I will liked alter the lace on my smaller breast to make it lie flat. The slight wrinkling on that breast isn't noticeable under a shirt but it bothers me to see I think i will alter it, should be an easy fix. After more wear, the wires are too wide. I still love the fit, but I do notice a feeling of less support or looseness from the wire width but not enough to cause any wrinkling or pain.

Cleo and I get along pretty well. I got this new online but non returnable so I got a 32 E because a few of the cleos I tried were too small in the 30 band. I wish I had gotten the 30 instead because I haven't gotten as much wear out of it as I am used to with my Lily.

Beautiful bra. Very comfortable. Almost perfect for my shallow breasts except I can't quiet fill the cup. Might be fixed by sizing down the cup but I don't have the lower size to test. I would probably keep it regardless of the cup except for the shape is odd for me. Breasts are lifted which is nice but also pulled in to a point where it minimizes the look of my size. Still a pretty shape just a different look for me.

The unpadded, unlined Cleo Bella Balconnet Bra surprised me. Bella pushes the girls very front and center. Looking at the bra's front view, you can see almost no side bulge from my boobs. That means more volume near the center gore. My Fauve half cup bras similarly create a lot of volume in the cleavage zone, but most half cup bras I've tried do not. Cleo Marcie doesn't, at least on me.
The thing about Marcie that is unusual for a balconnet, at least on my wide rooted, somewhat shallow shape, is its semi-spherical profile. Before I tried on Bella, I thought its profile would resemble Marcie's. I ... have many half cup bras, partly because I like that very rounded profile.
You could describe the side view as pointier than Marcie's but you could also describe the effect as one of superb lift and projection. I have a lot of half cup bras, so I'm used to that very rounded, somewhat minimized side view. Bella pushes my breasts out and away from the body.
I tried this in a 32E because the Nordstrom Rack I visited didn't have 30F. I'm returning it because I can comfortably wear it on the tightest hooks.
