I was about to update this about 3 days ago... Less than a month later the band has appropriately stretched out enough so an extender is completely unnecessary and I'm comfortably wearing on the first hooks. This is definitely an "everyday bra" I would say I wear on average 1-3 times per week (depending on outfits) and handwashed after 1-2 wears!

***Please note: For all intent and purpose this bra fits but I will keep the accurate "band is too tight" until it stretches out.
Thanks to Bratabase members I am now aware of the "George/Lizzie/Eleanor/Alexa/Sasha Family" bras which all carry a ... similar shape. I can't believe I'm a year behind on Eleanor! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> Last year I was dying over Bravissimo's Exclusive Green and Purple versions but didn't believe the bra would fit me properly because of bad luck with Cleo's Jude (http://bra.pe/ROx/) and Alex (http://bra.pe/RHr/). I weep now that I didn't try them! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
Quality: 4/5 (arrived with some loose embroidery)
I had nearly given up on most soft cups giving me a nicely rounded shape but thank goodness for Cleo balconette's! Wonderfully soft material in a lovely bright red shade. So far this bra is a bit tight in the 28 band but as I've experienced with my other Cleo's the 30 tends to wear out fast in just a few months and I am left feeling like I should have sized down. I plan on wearing this with a red extender (so it doesn't easily show) for a while until the bra really stretches so I can "normally" wear it on the first or second hook. This is definitely a test!!
Why I bought a 28gg instead of a 30g:
See 28gg Lucy (http://bra.pe/RcB/) and 30gg Sasha (http://bra.pe/RSU/).
Measured immediately before wearing.
Purchased mid-June 2012.
