The band is really big.
It has good projection, but not quite enough immediate projection for me to be perfect.
The gore is very high, just like other Panache and Cleo.
The fabric is okay, but the overall feel of the bra I think only really works if you're a bit smaller. I don't like 2-hook bras and the straps are very narrow so it doesn't feel supportive enough for me.
On some days I can wear this, others I quad out of it, and some other days the top wrinkles on me. But the band rides up if I wear it and the fabric makes marks into my skin which is unpleasant and the bra is not very comfortable to wear.

My 34J boobs are very soft, balanced/FOB, with lots of immediate projection and (I think) narrow roots. Hettie is one of only three bras I've tried that more or less stay in my IMF, and it's quite comfortable. For me, the Hettie gives a more natural shape rather than the very round shape Cleo is famous for, but not pointy.
In my size, the top half of the cup has a layer of mesh behind the lace. ( I think this is a feature in GG and up.) Smaller cup sizes just have one layer of stretch lace. Other folks with very soft breasts have reported in-cup quadding from the stretch-lace-only version. I don't have any in-cup quadding in the 34J, and my boobs are very prone to that. (I can't make Curvy Kate Ellace work at all for this reason.)
UPDATE: Sadly, I do have some quadding at the top of the cup after a few wears. Still serviceable, but not a good fit.
