I bought the Juna thanks to reviews that it ran really shallow - my breasts are wide and shallow, so this is exactly what I need. I've had good experiences with Cleo, so I was pretty sure on this fit and quality, and I was not let down.The bra front is made of a satiny fabric that's really nice and should hide rather well under most tops. The lace is not the highest quality, but I do not find it uncomfortable. The straps are covered and somewhat thick as a result, but not obtrusively so. I guess what I'm saying is that the Juna is somewhat plain, but ... a pretty good everyday sort of bra, made nice enough that you don't feel like you're sacrificing for the sake of wanting to wear t-shirts. It's got the necessary bits and bobs, plus some extras like padding to prevent show-through.
Now, there are a few slightly unpleasant aspects to the bra. The straps are not fully adjustable, and while I don't find them problematic, others might. The lace at the top of the cups most assuredly does not lay flat. It's sewn on in such a way that it angles abruptly back towards the chest, and as the bra is low-cut, it hits my breast tissue. So the top of the lace is against my skin, and the body of the lace is formed into a fabric bubble. But it's really only noticeable if I'm looking down at my breasts, and doesn't show through clothing.The band is much larger, unstretched, than most of my other bras, so I do fear it will wear out faster. And the seam on the two-part cups is very centrally placed, and so does not hit me where my breasts are fullest. But these are minor quibbles, and while they keep the bra from being perfect, it is still a great bra.
I would definitely recommend trying out the Juna, as it is a continuity bra for Cleo. It is especially worth looking into for those with shallow breasts, since finding truly shallow bras can be a challenge sometimes!

This is a tragic mismatch with my shape. Breast tissue comes out the sides. I mostly fill the cup but have weird, almost triangular gaping in the center 1/2" of each cup. My nipples are noticeably to the outsides of where the "center" cup seam is. The wires are too narrow....it looks like it's a great fit for a lot of folks in this size range, but just not for me.
I'm not heartbroken, since I'm really looking for an unlined bra anyways.

The gore was really uncomfortable for me on this bra. I am a shallow 28D, with pretty widely spaced breasts and a pretty bony ribcage. At first when I put this bra on, I thought "oh, the gore doesn't feel too bad", but boy was I wrong! It dug into my ribcage terrible, and I couldn't even bend over without wincing in pain. I'm new to wearing bras with underwire, so I thought I should try toughing it out a bit, but this was clearly beyond anything reasonable. I couldn't wait to take it off at the end of the day.
Other than that, it fit generally fine. My shallow breasts filled the cups well, but the lace at the top of the cups didn't lay flat. While my smaller breast didn't fill the cup as well, the lace actually only showed through my shirt on the larger breast - I guess because it was pushing it up more.
Anyway, I will definitely be looking for bras with lower gores after this one.

I would like to replace this one with the correct size.

I've had this bra for a number of years, and am refraining from measuring it since it has likely stretched out/contorted in various ways. All I can say is: I did not start out on the first row of hooks upon purchasing this bra (in new condition, from Herroom). It is a very sturdy model that has survived accidental non-delicate washes, and has been through the dryer many times. Nothing has broken, poked out, worn away, or even faded (only recently have the hooks on the tightest row, aka the only row I've ever used, lost their black coating and revealed some kind of metal core). HOWEVER: I ... cannot recommend this bra to a friend with similar boobs. This is not the fault of the bra: I've just been wearing the wrong one, which is sad for me to admit because this has been my most comfortable and often-worn bra for years. Unfortunately, the quad-boobing has become harder and harder to ignore, and I've since learnt that bands rising up to squish the bottom of your breasts is not inevitable. I will have to look for a smaller band size, and a larger or differently shaped cup.
TLDR: awesome bra, wrong size and or shape.

This bra actually fits me quite well. The quality is great; the straps are incredibly soft and comfortable. The lace on the cups could be really pretty, but it doesn't lie flat, which makes it awkward. The main reason I'm unhappy with this bra is just a personal preference: I don't like the pointy shape it gives, especially since the seams on the cups are also visible through tight shirts. I would definitely recommend it if you don't mind that shape and aren't necessarily looking for a tee shirt bra!

my shape: small, even/slightly fob, shallow, wide root
most importantly, the cleo juna fits my boob shape. so far, the bra feels rather tight (surprising. most reviews say that the band is stretchy and big).
i don't like the sewing. the seams show through shirts and makes me look pointy. the lace wrinkles a lot on me, especially when my shirt moves. although the bra looks very beautiful, and i wanted it to work, i don't think my boobs are fot enough to fix the issues i have when actually wearing clothes over it.

Several bra size calculators pointed me to a 28D, so I tried the Juna based on the recommendations for more shallow shapes. It's been an interesting experience to say the least. Some observations:
-The 28 band is not comfortable for me at all. 32 bands are definitely a hit-or-miss for me. 30 bands are looking to be my best band size.
-The cup almost fits... but I get slight orange in a glass effect in the bottom of the cup. My conical shape is probably at issue here, making me too shallow for most bras.
And some personal preferences: not a fan of the seams and the pointy shape that this bra gives me!
Live and learn~

band is a bit large and very stretchy, I'm a 26 size so it rides up considerably. the center gore digs into my sternum, though I'm confident this would be easy to fix with a bit of bending. wire width is fine, the cups do run rather small, I get a lot of quadboobing in this size, will return it for the DD and the E and see which one fits better.
the bra is gorgeous and has lovely lace detailing on top of the cups which can disguise minor fit issues. makes for a nice rounded and lifted shape, very comfortable if not for the gore. minor padding, very soft fabric, good every day bra.

I bought this as an everyday comfort bra and unlike the first few 28 band bras I bought, this one fitted without feeling too tight. Perhaps I'm getting used to them and am making a better transition from my old bra size (32A).
I was quite surprised with the fit of the cups though as Cleo bras are normally a very good fit on me. The centre of the cups looked too close together and when I'd put it, on it was indeed closer than what I am underneath! I think I would have done better buying the next cup size up but sadly they didn't have it in stock so I shall stick with this one.
It is otherwise a comfortable basic everyday bra that gives a decent shape underneath a tight top.
