    Love Love this bra, enough depth for my central fullness, shallower on the outside with lovely firm fabric, and the perfect height for my root so no big gap / crease between the strap and the cup. Wires enclose perfectly -gore could be narrower if the wires overlapped which would improve the bra for me (like my old Marcie) but the rest of this bra is so good that its not a huge issue.
    Such a pretty bra, the navy and pink is just such a great colourway and with the little charm, this bra just seems made for me.

    30F

    Didn't fit

    First of all, I really like the design on this model! I do love most of my bras but this is one I've come to really like over time. I have 1 30E and 1 30F, for low tide and high tide, so I can wear the Erin regardless of my breast size. <3 The 30F is really comfortable, when fastened on the middle hook the band always stays in place and is comfortable throughout the day. The band is nice and snug and even though I received this bra used it's in excellent condition.

    As for design it's similar to the Cleo Lily and the ... Marcie in cup shape, but the cup is not as tall as the newer Marcie. It resembles the Lily more closely with the pink diagonal band across the cups and the ruffled edge. The Lily was my first ever fitting bra and while it is too small for me now, the Erin fills its place just as well. The cloudy dark blue actually goes well with the hot pink straps and accents, and the little white blotches with pink and green centers make for some decent flowers. I usually prefer my bras to have a more "sophisticated" or eye catching pattern, but this is cute and definitely not bad. I really like the little blue charm in the gore, gore charms are probably my favorite thing!

    Structure wise this is a fairly standard 3-part balconette from Panache with underwires, 3 rows of 2 hooks and fully adjustable straps. The fabric on the inside of the cups is the same cloudy dark blue as the outside, but lacks the flower patterns. The fabric continues up for about 13 cm until the top cup seam that stitches the outer cup fabric together with the inner fabric. 5 mm from that seam, the stitching for the pink diagonal band has been done. Above that is the cup edge with the ruffles. Ruffles and lace seem to be sort of a trademark for the Cleo styles of bras, and as far as I've gathered this is because Cleo is marketed towards younger women.

    This bra is overall a really good fit. The gore is on the wider side for me so it doesn't tack, but this doesn't make any sort of significant impact on the fit. The ruffles in the cup edge don't actually really touch my breasts unless I push the gore in so it tacks, but ruffles always point outwards anyway.

      Sovavosi Indeed! It felt like the patch notes Minecraft has for each update, so I figured I could put in the last part just for kicks.

    Another good fit for me from Cleo. I like the shape this gives me, but the ribbon the the top of the cup doesn't have the same give as the rest of the material. The lace below the ribbon kind of balloons up a bit because of this. It's not a big deal though. Very comfy and uplifted. Not the prettiest pattern, but I will probably wear this a lot any way.

    32F

    Fits

    So far so good for the Erin. I've found it fits very similarly to the Lily, if not exactly the same. The biggest difference I've noted is the scalloped edge at the top of the cups sticks up, which doesn't happen with Lily.

    The colors are much brighter than the stock photos; the pink is very bright, and there's also a little turquoise colored circular charm at the gore that hangs below the bow, which I don't see in the stock photo.
    I have to say, at first I wasn't very keen on the colors/pattern of the Erin, but in person it's actually quite pretty (and I'm not much of a pink fan).

    I also got the underwear in my usual size 14, and they fit just fine.

    • Which colorways did you try of the Lily which were identical to the Erin?

    • I'd say the parrot colorway fits the closest to the Erin, and perhaps the swan print as well.

    • Have you worn the Aqua colorway? Because I'm not sure if it's just mine, but my parrot print is most of the way to a 32FF measurement-wise, and my Aqua is more true to size (fits like my Melissa). Wondering how the swan print is?

    • I've only tried the Aqua on a few times, not properly worn it, but all of my colorways seem to be true to size, including the Swan.

    • Any updates on your Aqua comparison? (as it were, I only have the aqua and magenta) Sorry to bug you about it again!

      janearmena Please note that I am now closer to a 32FF, so I get overspill in 32F's.

      Aqua Lily: Larger breast has overspill. Band is comfortable. Gore tacks.

      Erin: Larger breast has some overspill, but a tiny bit less than the Lily. Band is comfortable. Gore tacks. The scalloped top edge of the cups does not lay flat like the Lily, but it never has even when the bra fit (see photos here: http://www.reddit.com/2whdep).

      If you have any other questions do let me know!

    Didn't fit

    A pretty good fit and really comfortable. I'm a 30FF and I have it in 32F so the band is a bit too wide but it's not bad for everyday use. There's good immediate projection and a lot of projection overall. The ribbon usually sits on my breast tissue but the part above it kind of protrudes, but it's not a big deal. Fabric is comfortable, straps are fully adjustable. I like the color. The dark blue looks like it has a slight purple tint.

    30F

    Didn't fit

    This is the closest fit I've found so far. A tiny bit of wrinkling at the sides and bottom of the cup indicating that I might need something a touch narrower and with a tiny bit more immediate projection. The gore is a little high for my personal preference, but not a deal breaker. There's a bit of loose netting at the top, but just a little and mostly on my smaller boob.

    I wish there was a way to indicate that it's *almost* a bra that fits. Because this is pretty darn close.

    (I'm projected, even, narrow rooted & average root height - for reference)

    This bra fits true to size in the band and cups.

    I'm somewhat narrow, short rooted, mostly even, and quite projected, and this bra works well for that.

    Compared to the Cleo Lily, the scalloped edge at the top of the cups sticks up a bit on the Erin. The fabric of the Erin is also a little thicker/more rigid than some of the Lily colorways.

    30FF

    Didn't fit

    I tried Cleo Erin in 30G and 30FF. I started with 30G, but it was too big all over. The lace was completely gaping at the top and there were wrinkles everywhere in the fabric. I expected to have to size down in unlined, so nbd. The 30FF was a different story. The major problem areas are all concentrated at the top part of the cup. I got what I have seen referred to on bratabase as inner-cup quadboob. This is where the lace and ribbon detailing meet the top of the cup. The lace part was cutting into my tissue where the ribbon runs through it. The ... loose top of the lace, however, was sticking up and gaping. It felt loose against my skin. The in-cup quadboob was worse on my larger side (obviously), and made for a hideous silhouette under a shirt.

    Basically, the G was too big, but the FF too small. Or maybe just a shape mismatch because there was also wrinkling of the cup at the outer edge below where the strap meets the cup. The band was the right length and the wires seemed narrow enough, but since the wires slant backwards as they go up, this was awkward for me and didn't prevent armpit poking. The width is okay, but the wires are too tall? The gore was extremely stabby at the top even though I liked how narrow it was.

    Apart from the ribbon cutting into my tissue, I was surprised at the shape of the bra after all the raves about how perfect it is for pendulous breasts and how lifted and rounded the shape is. On me, it seemed to not give any balanced shape, just a narrow, projected, somewhat pointy shape from the top, almost bullety. It wasn't terrible, but not really round enough. On my frame it made me look very strangely narrow across the chest. I felt like I had a breast reduction and the width of my boobs was greatly reduced, making my shoulders and chest look broad, which is so weird since I'm really short.

    In the end, I think the cups are too deep in the middle (maybe better to say too projected) and too closed on top. Lastly, I didn't like the thinness of the material. The bottom half of the cup, while stiff, could have been stiffer and I would have preferred the same material throughout so I got less of a jiggly feel on top. Still, the material was so thin I could tell I wouldn't be able to wear it long and be comfortable. I have trouble explaining this, but when I put my t-shirt on, I could feel my shirt material through the bra material every time I moved and that's bothersome for me. I know that's weird, but unlined bras and I just don't get along. Plus side is that it's a pretty bra. I actually adore the appearance of it.

    This bra has a tight band, and cuts into my back, and you can see this through my clothes.
