The band is snug and tight as expected from Panache. The cup fabric is as firm as usual, and keeps all the breast tissue comfortably placed. The straps... Aren't too far apart, but could definitely be a little closer together. The straps rub on my tail of spence a bit and they feel a little coarse, but the coarseness can be attributed to the ruffle pattern on the sides. Unless I'm very active in this bra I don't think the straps will be much of an issue. The straps are however a little narrow, but that's to be expected from Cleo bras.
The gore on the other hand ... isn't narrow enough, as the width is a little over 2 cm and my limit usually is at exactly 1.9 or 2 cm. So as a result it rests ever-so-slightly on my inner breast tissue which causes it to poke out from the chest. It's not far, but it's enough to make the fit not perfect.
The shape is a 3-part balconette cup with the straps attached to the main 1st part. The overall look becomes rounded and just a smidge pointy. There's a little bit of extra space at the very top which in't very visible from the front.
The look of the bra is that of a Cleo one, with the diagonal band across the cup and ruffles on top. I wish I had the matching brief to make this look even cuter!
The shape, feel, quality and look is overall quite good. Like with most bras I have I feel very cute in this, and I'd definitely recommend the same model to anyone with a similar shape.
The cups are wrinkling a little bit in the bottom of the cups. I'm not entirely certain if this is due to size or breast roots, or perhaps fullness.
