Very red (I'd say barely orange-hued true red) unpadded balconnette style with 3-part seamed cups. Bottom of cup (2 parts with vertical seam) is embroidered mesh lace with a grid pattern and flowers and is lined on the inside with a powernet kind of material. Top of cup (1 part from center gore to just under strap attachment) is lace mesh with circles and flowers and a bit of grid pattern in the background. Everything is red except for the center bow which is aqua-blue with yellow edges.
I may have found my current Cleo size. (Please note that my review is very specific to my body/boob proportions/shaping. I ... consider this bra is "fitting" for the moment, even though it technically does not.)
Cups, of course, are slightly too tall for my short boobs. Most others would be fine. Sw/scooping fills them out for the most part. (Just a little looseness on the top lace when my shoulders are not back in proper posture.)
Wires are a little narrow for me, but sw/scooping puts everything in. It is not uncomfortable upon trying on. Will report back if it is different after wearing a full day.
Center gore is a little too tall on me, but, again, it's my short boobs/torso/height that is the issue. May cause issues for me when worn longer.
Cups end much higher on me than on a typical bustline. I'm used to it.
Straps are fully adjustable and still slightly wide-set, but only because of my narrower frame width. They seem to stay put during a 5-minute trying on.
Aesthetically, I love this bra. The embroidery is enough to make the red not plain and I like the pop of contrast colors with the bow.
