|Strap width||1.2 |
The Bonnie is a sister cut of the Lucy, and as such the fit is very similar to that of the Lucy. What that means in this size (28E): FOB, very narrow wires, wide gore, average or slightly above average projection. I did notice a few small differences, however, which actually made the Bonnie work a bit better for me than the Lucy. First of all, the gore is slightly lower on the Bonnie, meaning the width is less of a problem (although it’s still not great for close-set breasts). Also, I don’t experience the same gaping in the Bonnie as I do in the Lucy, probably because ... the embroidery on top doesn’t have any stretch to it. The Bonnie is also maybe a tiny bit deeper in the cup than the Lucy.
I’m generally not too fond of pink, or of the obnoxiously loud color combinations found in the Cleo brand, but the Bonnie is more understated than some, and I actually rather like the appearance of the bra, especially the geometric embroidery that looks like a spirograph. On the less positive side, the fabric is scratchy, more so than the Lucy, and not all that comfortable on the skin.
Unfortunately, as with the Lucy, the shape of the wires does not match the shape of my IMF and digs in to my ribs painfully on the bottom outside corners, so ultimately I can’t wear it.

Love this bra. It is really a good fit if you are in between 28E and 28F.
This bra could fit someone who needs a 28 F also. The band is slightly looser than other Cleo 28 bands. And the wires seem more comfortable than the Lucy wires on my ribs. The band feels slightly bigger than Lucy's band bit not as loose as the Juna band.

This is my first correctly sized bra. It fits like a glove and holds my boobs perfectly, gathering all the flesh into the cups and keeping it there without cutting into the sides. The band is a little tight, but that is to be expected especially since it has never been washed. The cups fit, except the extra panel of lace at the top seems to bunch a little especially on my right boob which is a little smaller than my left. It doesn't make much sense because the rest of the bra up to that point and at the top of the lace fits perfectly. I think ... its because I have shallow breasts that are, if anything, a little bottom heavy and so can't fill out the top quite right. This bra doesn't even have pads and my boobs look bigger in it! My only serious complaints are that it pokes my sternum (I have a very short chest) and the straps are a bit too wide and can irritate (I have very narrow shoulders). I'm hoping that the poking will improve with washing, and I'm ignoring the wide straps for now since its actually very useful for some of the boat neck shirts I like to wear. Despite these flaws, it is much more comfortable than all of my badly fitted bras because it is soft and stays put.

I found this bra on eBay for about $20, hoping that Cleo would be a improvement since Freya doesn't seem to quite work with my shape. I was right! It is perfect for my shape and I prefer the roundness that Cleo gives. The only issue that I have is that the cups sag slightly when I slouch but the fit in the rest of the cup is spot-on. From other reviews, it might be because the embroidery isnt as elastic as other Cleo bras with the same cut. Because of this, I might try to add a touch of elastic to keep the top of the cup in place. Otherwise, I think I will stick to Cleo!
As far as looks go, it's pretty but not my cup of tea. I like the shade of pink is pretty on my skin and the embroidered flowers look better in person than they do in pictures, it's just not my style.
