This bra definitely runs large and fits weird, but for me that makes it the best-fitting Cleo I've ever tried. If you know of any other Cleos that are like this, tell me! I want them!
I usually wear 28E in Cleo. Marcie fit my shape well, but the wires were too wide and I didn't get much lift. 28E in Breeze was much too big, there was a ton of gaping at the top of the cups. In contrast, 28DD fits just about perfectly. The wires are narrower than 28E Cleos, but because the cups seem to run large I don't have problems with spillage like I would normally have in a 28DD. For the first time I can get that round Cleo shape!
The band is normal for a 28.
I kind of want to not wear a shirt with this bra because it's so dang cute.
This is such a pretty bra. The band is nice and snug. I've had to size down to a 28F (usually a 28FF). There's still a little bit of gaping due to a slight shape mismatch but I really wanted this bra and it's not enough to show under clothing.
It's one of not many padded bras that actually fits me quite well. There is a bit of gaping on my smaller, right breast, but it's not a problem for me at all. I can spend whole day wearing this bra. Found it perfect for summer, to match with lace t-shirt!
Received the wrong size, I am a 28f or 30e. So cups are too big as the band too. But, I can say I will not order another size because the cups are too narrow and close together. I love the style and the fact that the gore and the cups come high. But viewed from the front it brings my wide rooted breasts too together and projected, which is the opposite of their natural state.
It is so pretty and fits so well and is so supportive.... and so tight in the band and so uncomfortable! The side boning is stabbing me. I added an extender which helped a little bit so I will probably keep using it. The side boning is also bending.
Not sure what to think about this style. I got the white floral from bravissimo which was perfect: tight band, comfy, looks great. Because I wanted to wear it so much, I ordered a pink floral off ebay. It's the same size bra in the same style, but the band is loose and there's no support https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
When I first saw this bra on Bravissimo's website I knew I had to order it. It is so pretty! I love the roses on the cups. The band is snug and doesn't ride up. I don't have any bulge. There are many hooks but I don't find it difficult to close it. The wires follow my breasts prefectly. The cups gap a little but it doesn't bother me and it doesn't show through shirts. In conclusion it is not a perfect fit but it's okay for me.
This is such a pretty bra. I was afraid that I wouldn't like the floral print, but I was wrong. I love it. I would highly recommend this bra. It's comfortable, beautiful and less than $50 on Amazon. That's hard to beat. I've found that with PE the longline bras work well at compensating for the cave in the middle of my chest.
