    Shape: round, projected, even to FoB, close set, on the narrow end of average root width.

    Holy heck, Cleo, what's with the stretchy bands lately? This is the second new colorway with a ridiculously stretchy 30 band I've had to send back (the first was a Cleo Marcie in Bluebell). It's SO stretchy you guys. I could fasten this on the tightest (!!) hook right from the get go. All the fit pictures are of the band on the tightest hook - it's a mess otherwise. On the loosest hook, there is so much gapping and wrinkling in the cup, the gore pops up off my sternum if ... I move in any direction that isn't chest forward, and the band is creeping up my back. If I move to the tightest hook, it greatly reduces the gapping and wrinkling in the cups, but it's not perfect (note the pronounced wrinkling at the bottom of the cups). The pros are that the shape is nice and rounded, the fabric is soft and comfy, and this colorway is just the best - turquoise and black look excellent together.

    I'm returning and grabbing a 28F to see if that fixes the fit issues, otherwise, too bad.

      Itnis amazing how different the bands are now. Skye is very stretchy. I observed the wires distort easily, too. Admittedly, however, the bras are significantly more comfortable to me now.

      Love4Pollinators it's so weird! Cleo used to be known for super firm bands. For the upcoming Della floral print & Piper longline I'm going to size down to 28F right from the start. My hope is that the bands will be *consistently* stretchy, because if not - so frustrating.

    • Love it!!! I need to get one soon *_*

    • I had the same issue with the pink Blake. I started out on the tightest hooks and it was still too big!

      I also let my 30E go to grab a 28F band... Love the blue though!

      Oooh but I love the blue colorway so much more than the pink one. This is a very nice combo. I too am desperately awaiting the Piper release as well.

    • This reminds me of the color way on one of the tutti bras

    • revisa Yup, this is like a more athleisure take on the powder/blue noir TR Nichole :)

    • Id say that it reminds me about Claudette Fishnet set ;)

    I almost gave up on buying more Cleos after I got bored of my Lucy - as it is way too loose now on me and I stopped wearing it after I start buying Comexims and EM. However, when I saw Blake in the preview it made me to think that I could give a try as it looks very simple. It was great choice - better than my Hettie that I was in love but again is too loose on me - so im trying to sell it and get it in 32DD or 30E instead.
    Blake has so great materials! like a new better Cleo! Fabric feels ... so good quality and is very soft. Also, I love the combination with beige trim. The only think that I don't like is the bow with animal print.
    It gives obviously rounded shape, the wires are narrow enough and works well on me.
    The band is bit loose, I could close it on the second set hooks however the loosest set feels comfortable and supportive enough. The band unfortunately is made of 1 layer of mesh - so I think that it may stretch out with the time..
    the straps are not too wide - feels like my EM BM Szmaragd, also are fuly adjustable.
    Overall Im very happy with the purchase and Ill be trying to get it in new blue version *_*

    • Where did you get it from? I was trying to find it online, but I couldn't really find any place selling it except for figleaves!

    The band on this bra fits looser than other Cleo unlined bras I have tried - very sad.

    It fits well when I swoop and scoop, but the tissue tends to escape. I think a tighter band would help that. Unfortunately the company I bought from is out of 28Fs - I think that size would be better for me. The band isn't horribly loose or anything, to be clear - if I bought this bra for like $20 used, I'd probably be satisfied. But since I'm buying it new and paying almost retail price, I'm a bit more picky about fit.

    Anyway though, this is the Cleo I've always wanted - minimal design (minus the Leopard bow), great shape, slightly less bright color. I want to keep it.

    Listing it so hopefully someone will take it before I rip the tags off and wear it anyway.

    This bra currently cuts a little on the top of my boobs. However, as I am on my period I will retry it when I am in a less full week.

    Re-tested it: on a less full week only the top elastic cuts a little, but nothing uncomfortable or ugly. I have loosened the straps and this helps.

    It gives a natural but lifted shape. Looks very streamlined and very nice. I love the look when I wish to wear something simple.
