|Strap width||1.9 |
This was SO tight the first time I tried it on. Ugh. After seeing the band measurement, I now know why. It stretches over time, though. Armpit fat hangs out the sides, and and the underwires sit significantly lower than my breast fold. It squashes my breasts as well. I think it's a little wider than my breast tissue.

I agree with the other reviewer about this bra -- it gives great shape, and fits deeply at the gore. It's an odd sensation, since I'm used to mashing my boobs down into DDs*. But, the effect is very pretty. I do notice one little wrinkle in the lace section along the top of the right cup, but I think that has more to do with a slight miss in construction, rather than cup size. The band is snug but comfortable on the first row of hooks and the straps are a good balance of width for comfort and style. Overall, it feels a little stiff, but I ... don't expect complete comfort from such a decorative bra.
(*This is my first correctly sized bra, I've been wearing 36 D/DD for 5 years, 36C before that, and wondering what the heck is wrong with my boobs for never fitting well in what's offered at the standard stores. Low and behold: Saved by correct sizing!)
**Con: After wearing the bra for two days, I think that the gore is a little too wide for me and not padded enough. I have abrasions on the inside flesh of my boobs on both sides. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

What a lovely summer bra! This, like the Cleo Melissa, Meg and Natasha, fits deep through the centre and provides a lot of support. I sized up in the back (the band is quite firm) and up in the cup (as is the way with Cleo, I've found) and the fit is fantastic. Front-and-centre, lifted, well-supported. I do love this bra shape. I hope that Cleo continues to make bras of this quality, with this shape, for quite a while.
