A good Cleo bra. Runs a bit loose in the band and a tiny bit big in the cups for a 30DD. I so wish it came in 28E, because it would fit me a lot better, but I can live with 30DD because it's so cute. The mesh is very soft and comfortable and the combination of the aqua and black is very attractive.

My boobs: I am tall rooted, slightly narrow and projected up to my apex, shallow above the apex. Soft tissue.
This bra: fits really nicely! I sized down as I read here that this bra runs big in the cups, and that is definitely true. The depth of mine is 8.5, which I think is about a half cup size bigger than most 30DDs. As I usually do well in 30Es that run slightly small, I thought I'd give this one a try and I am so glad I did. It works very well for my shape. There is good depth at the wire and good overall projection. The ... top section works well with my tall shallow-ish roots because the black ribbon closes the cup somewhat more than Marcie. I don't find the black ribbon cuts in at all. It also makes my boobs look round, which never happens to me. Plus it is very comfortable, the fabric is soft All in all, I want to panic buy as many of these in this size as I can because I adore the look and fit of this one but it is discontinued :/
The wire on my bigger size is too narrow for me, I switched it out for a wire from a worn out Marcie in a cup up and it works like a dream now. (All measurements are from the unaltered side.)

Shape: round, projected, even, close set, on the narrow end of average root width.
I tried this in my usual size, 30E - Cleo » Blake Balconnet Bra (9151), and left a detailed review. I ordered this one before I wrote the 30E review and realized that my fit issues were primarily due to band being way too stretchy and NOT the cup size being too big. Cup is definitely too small (gore won't tack) and the band is just as ridiculously stretchy as the 30E I tried. Fingers crossed that the 28F is the *one true fit* in this bra for me!
Bra friends, sister size down in the turquoise colorway if you like a firm band! I've heard rumors that the cerise also has a stretchy band, so keep that in mind as well when shopping deals on the dc'd colorway https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
