I bought this bra on the assumption that the fit would be close to the Cleo George Balconette (http://bratabase.com/browse/cleo/george-balconette-5731/28E/) since that what it seemed to look like in the photos I've seen. I actually hesitated on getting this bra because personally, I'm not a fan of the colour purple, but the flower pattern on it kind of grew on me.
The band fits great, stretchier than the George, but not stretchy enough to need to go down a band size.
The cups seem a bit too small I think. When I tried on the bra, it felt fine, very comfortable in fact. The issue I had was the shape, it gave me a round shape but I think it was because the cups were slightly flattening. When I pull my elbows back, I get a double boob effect (although it's not too much).
I will try this bra in 28F and report back with results.
I got this bra to wear as an unpadded "nude" bra to wear under sheer tops, since I find beige bras boring, generally. The very light mottled floral and lilac background function well as a near-nude.
I had heard that the Cleo Lucy (5851) and sister-cuts would cut in for my even-fullness shape. However, my tall root was my salvation here - my tissue up top is shallow enough that the bra does not cut in at all. Unfortunately the rest of the fit is less good. The gore and wires are too wide. The wires slip around in their channels and get a little pokey. The band is quite stretchy, and I find it fairly loose even on the smallest hook. I will probably take in the gore, which should improve many of these fit issues.
Cleo Frances fits best of all the Cleos I've tried so far - no wrinkling in the upper half of the cups, the band is not as tight as George's and it gives a very nice shape. And as a plus: I love the colours. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
