Another really cute unpadded bra that really and truly fits! The other was my 30D - Cleo » Lucy (5851) , back when I could still wear a 30D. I was so happy they decided to offer a few of their 3-part cups in B and C sizes and I hope they'll bring them back.
Anyway, the Izzy is true to (Cleo) form. Short straps, tight band, excellent cup shape and lift. Truth be told, due to the band tightness I should probably be wearing a 32B in this particular model (and its clones) but I really don't want to do yet another ... return/exchange. Also, according to the measurements table here on Bratabase, the 32 bands seem to measure 2" larger on average than the 30s. This makes sense and it also means that they would probably be a bit too large for me. So I'll wear this one with an extender until it loosens up.
Bratabase will tell me this bra doesn't fit because in the fit assessment I checked off that the straps don't adjust long enough and the band feels too tight. However, I consider this a fitting bra because it's easy enough for me to lengthen the straps and add a band extender if I wish.**
Interestingly, when I put on my extender, the straps no longer seemed so constrictive. It looks like the strap lengthening probably won't be necessary.
