The Cleo Blake I received runs bigger than the bra it's based on, the Cleo Marcie. I've been a very consistent 28FF cup in Marcie and her clones, so this is something of a surprise. The measurements seem about the same, perhaps it's the cup height or maybe the fabric has more stretch? FWIW, I have short, narrow roots and inner fullness.
The bra itself is a blue toned pink/red. The cup is made from 2 layers of knit fabric, with a "pebbled" effect on the outer layer, and a smooth inner layer. Unlike Marcie, the upper part of the cup is made from the same fabric as the lower cup, which may be less "in-cup-quad" prone than the lace on most Marcie Clones. The top of the cup is sewn to a piece of pinkish beige elastic, which means that the top of the cup has a smidgen of stretch. YMMV if very FOT or tall rooted.
The band also seems biggish for Cleo.
I haven't yet decided whether I'll return or exchange it for a 28F.
This bra is not owned any more
