    Used to fit

    Cleo Bella arrived yesterday and it was comfortable enough to immediately put on and wear out! I don't usually have enough confidence to wear a bra until I've tried it on twice.

    Really pretty. The yellow butterflies and aqua back are my favorite design elements. The shape is similar to the Ellis, but more closed on top. The closed-on-top aspect can offer an odd shape when combined with the usual Cleo front, center, lifted approach. Since I have a short root, it really works for me.

    The gore tacks perfectly, but I didn't need to do any bending outward at the gore tips. The wires are slightly wide ... for me, but since they angle lower, I don't get any armpit stabbing, so it's ok. I'm pretty assymetrical, so I have some slight gapping on my smaller side, and some slight quadding on my larger side, but that's about as good as it gets for me without an alteration. The gapping is less significant than it is in my Cleo Ellis or my Cleo Lily Parrot colorway (don't have gapping in Lily Aqua). The band is more immediately comfortable on the loosest hook than the Melissa or the Ellis were on first wear.

    As far as fit, this is my 2nd favorite after the Melissa. As far as shape, third after Melissa, then Lily. As far as aesthetic, 2nd favorite after Ellis. As far as comfort, this is second after the Cleo Lily, but I get the feeling it will be my favorite after a wash. Overall, this is a great addition. I feel extremely supported and cradled in this bra. It makes me happy to wear it.

    Beautiful bra. Band is tight, as it always is with Cleo. I prefer to buy my regular size and wear an extender for a bit as Cleo's bands stretch fairly quickly in my experience. So far it's very comfortable, gore tacks but doesn't dig in, straps adjust to a good length (though I'm worried they may be a tad bit too wide, will see after longer wear). It definitely has more room for projection than I'm used to, but I don't seem to have a problem filling it out on my larger breast. The silhouette is a tiny but pointer than I'd prefer, but it's not a huge ... problem. Overall, good fit, and I'm very happy with it. With the more projected cups, I'd say this actually fits somewhere between a 32F and FF, but as I'm between sizes it's not an issue for me. Will update after long wear.

    Update: So after wearing for a couple of hours, the straps are indeed a bit too wide, I'm getting a little chafing in the armpit area but this is a problem in most of the bras I've tried, it's not too bad in this particular bra. I actually think the cups are too large now, my smaller breast is swimming in it, and I've noticed that my larger breast has some wrinkling and gaping that weren't apparent when I tried it on. Thinking about trying this in a 32E instead, but I'm afraid those cups will be too small.
