    30E

    Fits

    I bought this bra in a 34D and altered the band down to a 30E.
    What can I say ... the bra is just amazing. It gives a perfect shape (rounded and slightly uplifted), it's an awesome halfcup shape - not too high-coverage, so it's great for summer and tank tops.
    The padding is thin and soft, which makes it super comfortable to wear.
    The turquoise color is pretty cute too.

    It's a pity Cleo discontinued this cut. Masquerade has two sister-cut-models (Masquerade Georgiana (5471) and Masquerade Angie Balconnet Bra (7171)) but the padding on both is stiffer and I'm not too fond of their designs.
    This bra's measurements have been altered

      can we see pics? i'm curious about the alterations!

    • 1

      Hey there :)
      I don't have any before-pics, but the alterations I made are pretty simple. I just altered the band using this awesome how-to by Hagane: http://www.bratabase.com/adventures/entry/1560/
      Instead of sewing by hand I used a sewing machine. That's it. :)

      I might consider adding some pictures later ;)

    • Oh i see! I always wondered how that was done. I'm too scared I'd screw it up with my shaky hands. ><

    This Cleo bra is very cute and soft. The double seams on the cups give a really flattering shape. Since I got this bra used, the band was really stretched out, but I wore it with a rixie clip until I eventually altered it back down to a 28. Ever since I done that, the right cup gaps due to a smaller boob, but not before which was strange.

    I wish they continued this bra in other colours! It's really comfy (except the gore is too wide and tall for me).

    Didn't fit

    I loved this bra while it still fit me. It's very comfortable, and it gave me a divine shape. The top of the cups shows through thin shirts (because of the ribbons and other decorations), but that's the only fault I could find with this bra. Because the cups are cut so open at the top I could still wear it when I became a 30D. I'd say if you have wide root shallow breasts and you can still find a Charlie in your size, grab it.
    I wish Cleo still made this so I could get one in my new size.

    28F

    Didn't fit

    I really love this bra, the colour is gorgeous, it is short under my arms and the gore is thin enough for me.

    The only problem is that I need to size up and I can't find it in an ff, and the straps are not fully adjustable.
