    I have never really loved Cleo's Unlined bras and never really got the obsession that surrounds them. I am happy to say that has changed. I absolutely love the Cleo Hettie. I am very pleased that I gave unlined Cleo's another chance. I also recently got another model of Cleo as well that I love. The only issue is that the bands are very stretchy on the newer Cleos, all the old Cleo's I always thought felt too tight even in a 32 band, despite measuring close to TTS. The Hettie's band in 32DD is actually longer than a 34D Lily. I have a full review on my blog along with a bit of a comparison to Lily.

    • Helpful comparisons! Have you tried Blake?

    • annabellynn yes, I actually got Blake a few days ago, and it is a pretty good fit, but a bit more closed off. I will review it soon.

    When I ordered the Hettie, I had to decide between a 32DD and a 30E. Both fit well in the cups, but the 30E felt a little too tight to be comfortable, so - knowing that Cleo bands usually stay tight for long - I went with the 32DD.
    After a just few weeks of occasional wear (and washing) the band has loosened up considerably. The bra slips around on the loosest set of hooks, rides up my back and feels unstable. So, I'm already on the middle hooks now and probably need to switch to the tightest hooks soon.

    I'm planning to take in the band so this isn't ... a dealbreaker for me. However, be aware that Hettie might loosen up sooner than other unpadded Cleos. If you're between sizes, consider buying the smaller size and using an extender during the first few wears.

    The fabric used for the band is different from, e.g., the Cleo Marcie's. It's not sturdy power mesh, but a softer fabric that has more stretch to it. It snaps back after wash, but stretches out after a couple hours of wear again.

    This bra actually fit except for the center gore digging into my sternum. I bent the wires back a bit and still was uncomfortable. Also felt like the wires were digging in under my breasts or like the band was too tight. Based on regular and stretched band measurements, the band isn't any shorter than other ones that felt comfortable, so I am wondering if it is just the wires being stiff. Although, I did wear this bra around the house for a while, which I haven't with the others.

    Have thought about trying a 34d but it seems like the band would be too tight.. thoughts?

    • I may be completely wrong, but in the last two pictures it looks as though you are quaking where the lace meets the rest of the cup. I wonder if the cup is too small perhaps?

      I agree to what EmmaOh said that bra looks little too small, however 32E might be too large - you could try 30F instead? I owned one in 30E, forced myself to wear it and hated it. The wires were so uncomfortable, the gore was digging in and band was bit itchy, leaving bad red marks. I had also in 34D, and didnt fit well.

    • Definitely looks like in cup quadding to me.
