I have mixed feelings about this bra. I like the basic look of it, but I don't think it is working for me.
The band fits ok, but it feels like it will be too loose once it breaks in. This is a struggle I have with 34" bands (I think 33" would be perfect, but I obviously can only choose between 32 and 34.). The straps are set too wide for me. This causes two problems in this bra: 1) the strap/top of cup digs into my armpit uncomfortably, and 2) I think the wires go too far back for me - the underwire extends under my arm ... nearly to my back. However, the wire seems ok between my breasts (maybe tacks a touch hard) and the bra does have enough projection at the wire for me. I get some wrinkling in the lace over my smaller breast where the lace meats the fabric of the cup. The lace also gapes a bit when I move around. I was expecting it to move with me better, but it may do better for someone with more top fullness.
Finally, I feel like the cup gives me a slightly weird shape, but I can't put my finger on what I don't like about it. I think the set of the straps cause the bra to lift more from the sides which brings the tissue towards the front. That isn't necessarily a bad thing for some people, but it gives me a pointier shape than I want.

## FIT OVERVIEW
- Band is snug and comfortable
- Gore is comfortable
- Cups are a tad too big
- Straps are fine
- Wire feels comfortable
## SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO NOW
Return (34:F), will probably try 34:E.
The bra fits really nicely but the lace top of the cup is just loose enough to cause a fold on my larger side which will show through clothes.
Wore a cookie on my smaller side in pics.
## MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION
- Backband is an ok softness poly performance knit (not a power mesh)
- Two (2) piece bottom cup is lovely french dot mesh and lined with semi-sheer nylon, not a tricot mesh, which makes the cups really comfortable.
- Top cup is a lightweight soft stretch lace
- Frame and two-piece gore are lined with a mesh tricot
- Hook & eye is standard felt-backed, not itchy

Edited to add: This review in on the pink/black color way.
I purchased this Cleo bra in a sister size as my prior experience with this brand indicated the bands ran snug. To get a good fit in this bra, I had to use the second hooks. Even then the size was odd on me -- almost too big and too small at the same time. My breasts completely filled out the lower portion of the cup. The stretchy lace at the top, however, was ever so slightly wrinkled at the top. With good posture the lace issue was not noticeable but with any movement the gaping was worse. I put on a T-shirt to see if the wrinkling was visible and to my surprise I noticed quad-boobage.
Edit #2 - With a few stitches I was able to get the lace to lie flat when I fasten the bra on the tightest hook! Fits perfectly now! Next time I will go with a 32 for sure.
- This bra's measurements have been altered
Adjusted lace at the straps to stop the slight gaping/rippling. Perfect fit now.
