    28E

    Didn't fit

    The lace laid flat (not a good sign with the Cleo Juna (6461) models), and I had an orange-in-a-glass effect. The wires were really wide, and squeaked when I moved. The straps were also very wide set, and I din't really like the shape it gave me underneath clothes; the seams really showed. I returned it in the end.

    It's So Pretty.

    I want it to work... but it doesn't want to work.

    I ordered it, comparing it to my http://www.bratabase.com/bra/dhvih/ La Senza fabulous bra... but the shape is slightly different and the Cleo seems to cover more boob than the La Senza does... making the cup a marginal fit rather than a good fit. Really, just a tiny bit of quad boob with some imagination.

    I considered ordering a 28FF instead, that would solve the cup issues, but it wouldn't solve the band issues. I have a 25.5in underbust, and normally 28 bands work really well (I'm not very fleshy, so there's not much to 'compress', so 28 bands work like a dream despite measuring sub-28). I'd need a 26 in this bra, and that of course doesn't exist. Even though I WANT to convince myself that this is 'fine'. It will end up somewhere over my shoulders before the end of the day.

    Bye bye Cara! (And bye bye all other Juna-lookalikes with all your prettiness!)

  3. This was another i picked up from a used ebay lot. Unfortunately it's too small in the cup. I would say this band is definitely larger than other Cleo bands i've tried but it may be because it's used.

    Didn't fit

    With my upper fullness, this bra could have been a bit of a challenge because of the lace section at the top. Thankfully that isn't an issue. The front seam definitely does show through clothing, even with a few light layers, but considering this bra is pretty comfortable I don't let it bother me. The elastic isn't as sharp on this bra for some reason, though I think that the break-in period will eventually cause the slight red marks on my back and shoulders to go away.

    I was so hoping this would fit, and at first I thought it did. But the gore just rides so uncomfortably high that it leaves red marks on my breasts. Ouch.

    Band was so tight and yet the top of the cup wasn't full. This style isn't compatible with my full on the bottom breasts.

    Didn't fit

    As Cleo Juna (6461) , this one is soft and lovely to wear. The materials are good and colour's just so pretty.

    How ever, doesn't meet the width of my breasts. But there isn't remaining empty space in the cup, so the shape isn't too projected, which seems to be usual problem with unfitting bras. The lace on the edge doesn't get wrinkly and smoothes the edge - sure, it can be seen trough sheen blouse, as like the colours too, but that's of course nothing to worry about with basic clothing.

    The shoulder straps are slender yet sturdy.

    32E

    Didn't fit

    I tried my sister size of 32E in the Cleo Cara because it was a good price from Bare Necessities. The 32 band is not tight at all on the tightest hooks. I felt the underwires were a tad too narrow on the sides for me. This is a very pastel bra, so if you like pastels, you'll love this. The lace at the top of the cups reminded me of Panache Juna's. I do like the very round profile that derives from the vertical seams. Each cup has one vertical seam. I will return this bra because pastels aren't my thing, and the band is just too loose, even on the tightest hooks. I prefer pure white or icy colors to pastels.

    I was fitted for this bra at Bravissimo a few days ago, in the shop it seemed to fit perfectly on the loosest hook but when I tried it on today I had to go for the middle hook and had quadboob. I'll try again after my period and see how it is then https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
