      What a beautiful bra and it looks great on you! You may need a cup size up but maybe not. Looks like it might quad a teensy bit on your one side but it's really not that bad. Did you try under a shirt?

    • Thank you Roxanne. It is such a lovely bra, I do want to keep it! I did try it under my knit top and I thought it looked great. I've been over-analyzing the fit of it and can't make up my mind if the cup is too small or if I'm just not sure how it's supposed to look. I would hate to have to go through the trouble of exchanging it for an F cup and that turns to be too large!

      Ooh I love that bold floral print! I agree with your suspicion that it is small for you. It's a balconnet not a plunge, and your boobs aren't meant to be smooshed together like that, so this means you could use more room in the cup! Hopefully it will fit just right at 1 cup size larger.

    • Yes, wendybien, I do think it may be too small a cup. I think that I will exchange it for the 28F. I love the floral print too in this longline style, so pretty! I will do a picture update when I receive the new bra.

      ceah Gorgeous on you!!!!

    • Thanks Love4Pollinators. That's a very sweet thing to say!

    • Looks gorgeous, but I agree with others, too small,cup. But if you needed a "sexy" bra, it looks amazing!

    34FF

    Didn't fit

    I had heard Breeze ran small in the band and somewhat large in the cups. So I was looking for a sister size, from my regular 30GG/H to a 32G or 34FF.

    First tried this bra in a sale, when the only sister size left was a 36F. Not a big surprise that that didn't work out (36F - Cleo » Breeze (9025)) but I as I really loved the design and rounded profile, I wanted to try a smaller backsize.

    In this 34FF, the fit is definitely much better than in 36F - although a 32G(G?) probably would've worked as well. I'm now wearing it on the ... second row of hooks. So for my shape (tall roots, upper fullness) Breeze doesn't seem to run large in the cups. And maybe one size small-ish in the band?

    About the band, this is actually longer than in other longline bras I've tried (Freya Flourish & Crush, Fauve Bronte). This means (for me) that the band also doesn't flip up as much, which is great. And the length means a nice smoothed silhouette under clothes, without bulges.

    Cup wise I could maybe get away with a bigger size, but there's no real quadding. Some minor discomfort where the sides are kind of poking into my armpits (which seems to be caused by the side boning? Luckily much less of a problem than in the 36F).

    Edit: forgot about the straps; they are not my favorite. Pretty narrow, kind of wide set and more rigid than I prefer.

    Guess Breeze still won't be an everyday bra for me, but I really love the design and it gives some good special occasion cleavage!
    Matching shorts are a nice fit in a size 14, for my larger 42 inch hips / butt.

      Looks lovely on you!! It's such beautiful print but I can get used to longlines.
      I found that some Cleos I need 34D and some 32DD in cups (yeah, they're sister sizes but there was better or worst fit ) and I've tried breeze in 34D and 32DD where both in a band were tts and 32DD had better fitting in the cups.

    • 1

      Looks fantastic on you! Great cleavage going on :)

    • Thanks martka00 and roxanney (:

      And yeah, sister sizing tends to work out differently for different brands and sizes, IMO. Guess it still mostly comes down to trail and error 🤔

    30FF

    Didn't fit

    This bra had me excited for months and now I managed to get it for free with my Bravissimo reward points.

    Pros:
    - bra looks awesome (the straps, the shape it gives, the way the flowers look like a galaxy)
    - bra is supportive and well built
    - band is snug and easy to do up
    - straps are adjustable enough for me
    - cups are the right distance apart for me

    Cons:
    - it might be to narrow, projected and closed at the neckline for some. As I'm full on top, it just about works
    - at the sides, the boning at the bottom digs in, which I hope will stop happening but may just be ... because I am chubby!
    - there's slight digging in at my sternum which may be because of my somewhat splayed boobs. The bra comes up quite high at the centre. It is not a half cup but a balconette style with tall cups (which generally work for me)

    I'm keeping this bra as it's beautiful. I don't think it's going to be an everyday bra, but my boyfriend already loves it as it looks kinda like flower nebulas. For a longline it is well worth the £29 that Bravissimo is selling it for!

    • So tempted, even though I look awful in longlines due to being short waisted and carrying my weight in the middle

    30FF

    Hasn't set fit

    I'm going to start off by mentioning that Breeze runs 1 size too big in the cup. I'm a 32H cup size wise in other bras from Cleo, but a 30H in Breeze. Ultimately, I tailor the band down to a 26-24. My review is based off the wear of Breeze with and without alterations.

    The gore hugs my sternum tightly. 0% floating away. The cups are substantially firm and supportive. They have a nice round profile. No hint of cone whatsoever!

    The material of the straps are comfortable and don't dig into my skin. *happy dance*

    The fabric below the cups is quite stiff with no give, no stretch; ... which further provides ultimate support. The quality is immensely impressive, I'll tell you that. Admittedly, I've slept in Breeze for over a month and it still looks brand new! Overall, I find this bra supportive, cute, high quality and durable.

    The straps aren't fully adjustable. I find the straps are too long for me even on the tightest setting.

    With 6 hooks, Breeze is one hook too long for my short torso, as it awkwardly hits my ribs; causing discomfort when I bend a certain way. (I heard it's 5 hooks for smaller cups)


    TL;DR
    --------
    PROS:
    - Supportive
    - Durable
    - Comfortable straps
    - Firm Round cups
    - Back support

    CONS:
    - Straps aren't fully adjustable
    - Slight east/west look
    - A bit too long for shorter torsos
    - Visible under tight clothing
    - Cup are a tad more separated than I prefer

    • Is this ok for immediate projection?

    • Pine21 My breasts are fairly projected and it worked well for me. The cups are on the tall side which somewhat gives a bit of a minimizing effect, projection wise.

    Fits

    Cleo's longline styles are great. I had to go down a cup size in this style. Print is cute. The longline part doesn't flip up or curl. Wires are slightly narrower than I'd like, but I put up with it because it's so hard to find a good longline. Cleavage is awesome, as usual with Cleo padded styles.

    You'd think going by my measurements that this would be a cup size too small, and while it is a hair on the small side, I'm happy with how it fits.

    30DD

    Fits

    I have average-width, even breasts with tallish roots.

    There is a very flexible plastic boning in each side seam of the band to help it stay in place and not scrunch up. Seems to work well because I do not recall any problems with the band riding up on my first wear!

    Interestingly, the underwires are softer and more flexible than virtually all other underwire bras I have tried. Might replace them with firmer wires one day, if nothing else to see how the fit changes.

    For some reason, the left cup gapes at the top while I have no trouble filling the right cup. I have never had fit issues with one breast being larger than the other, nor have I ever noticed that one might be larger, so I wonder if the cups weren't sewn evenly/some other manufacturing error. It drives me insane but this bra is too cute to give up, I love it so much!

    Great Bra for lots of immediate projection. Fits like a 28F. Band is looser than I'd like- I need to fasten on the tightest hooks. It's really pretty.

    • Beautiful on you!!

    • Thanks! I really like this bra. :)

    • This bra definitely runs a full cup large! That was always my favorite colorway.

      Just another quick comment after checking the measurements you added. I have this bra in a 28F and the cups are definitely not 5.5" wide. Are you sure that's accurate?

    • 1

      I just double checked and changed it from 14 to 13 cm. It is definitely closer to 13 cm when I measure the between the inner edges of the underwire. Thanks!

    • Sonya No problem, thanks for checking!

    • ack, that bra makes me want to lose 50 lb!

    • Wow, you're right, Sonya ! That is some impressive projection right above the wire. Glad you found this gorgeous bra.

    • Thanks! :) I am so happy to be learning what to look for in order to find a bra that fits properly. I wish it was easier to find tiny band sizes though. My ribs are only 25". This bra in still slightly loose on the tightest hooks.

    Didn't fit

    First of all, I wish all bras were made with such strong fabric! I loved how firm the band fabric was.....except it runs small. :( I could barely get it fastened. It doesn't come any bigger, so I'm sized out.

    The cup is projected for a half cup, tall, open on top and has room for center fullness. I gape and would probably risk trying a size down if this came in a 40 band.

    The straps are pretty skinny for a full bust bra. It's so gorgeous, I wish it fit.

    EDIT: Forgot to add..the gore from top to bottom of underwire is 4.5"

    28H

    Didn't fit

    Definitely one of the better longlines I've come across!

    This Cleo longline has more projection than the Comexim longlines I've tried on in the past. But unfortunately, the bra is in the wrong size for me anyway so it's a bit too small.

    Band runs tight! I usually wear 26 bands and this 28 band fits me perfectly.

    The cups are tall and run a cup size large (estimate) so this 28H bra is more like a 26HH/J really. The centre gore wires did poke in after a while since they come up a bit high.

    Really well made, I just wish they had released it in a bigger size range :(

    28DD

    Fits

    This bra is so pretty but I can't decide if it fits well enough.

    I don't get any quadding but the gore is only lightly tacking. On the sides I don't find it's sitting on any tissue, so I don't think that's the issue. I'm thinking it might be that the gore is too wide, a shape mismatch, or a the cups are slightly too small (unfortunately I sized down since I think a 28E might be too big based on others reviews).

    After trying a cleo mimi in 28E I've realized I need to size up so looking to exchange.

    • Do you find this bra to be more closed or open on top?

    • I would definitely say its more closed off but not extremely so. I'm not sure if it would work for very tall roots
