My typical size is a 30E, and this was remarkably close to fitting for a 23D - yet more evidence that bra fits across brands/time are frustratingly inconsistent. The main issue was that it cut in under the arms. Really pretty bra if you're into the Rococo-era Skank aesthetic, and the single seam construction is really unique and comfy - just weird sizing. I wish Cleo would start making these again - I'd take a 30DD/E any day!

I finally got hold of a Cleo Harry unpadded halfcup bra in my sister size. Harry was the first and (so far) only unpadded halfcup ever produced by Cleo. As I love this bra style, this was a must-have.
First of all, it has same the 'oldschool' Cleo design as the other older Cleo models - George, Brooke, etc.: Sheer mesh, muted pastel colors and lots of playful embroidery and details.
The wires are similar to the Cleo balconettes (George etc.) in width and length. They touch in the middle and the center gore is quite high but not poking.
The cups are sewn of two parts with a vertical ... seam in the middle, and not particularly low-cut - they provide as much coverage on me as the Cleo balconettes do. I found I can go down one cup size due to the cut which is very open on top.
The shape it gives is quite nice - lifted and centered, but not as rounded as the balconettes. The shape is a little pointy, it looks pleasantly natural.
The band is the only letdown - it's very loose and stretchy and not nearly as firm as the George's (or Marcie's) in a 32 - I'm currently wearing it on the innermost hook and I'm planning to take it in soon.
