Got this bra from another user who had some slight discoloration on the straps. There is some discoloration, but it isn't much. I plan to get the stain out and maybe dye the bra a pale nude color - maybe. This bra is very comfortable, but the gore is too high and the wires are too wide. I am a big fan of this style though, so it's a keeper, at least for the time being.

This bra is good because it fits (I have a tall and wide root, conical/pointy shape, full on bottom) and i quite like the simplicity, though not sure about the lace
The centre gore isn't particularly comfortable.

Still on my first days of usage, can't really say all that much, but though it fits me, it hasn't won me over yet. What's keeping me from really loving it for now is the fact that the lace trimming over the cups doesn't sit straight on the breast (maybe if I were fuller on top it would) and the center gore isn't all that comfortable either. As far as cleavage goes... all my bras face the comparison with the Capella, and none is a match to the Capella cleavage, unfortunately.
Other than that, the Juna is the perfect nude shade for me and if it weren't ... for that darn lace it would be a good t-shirt bra.
Will keep wearing it though and will come back to this review after some time.

So, here I am, online shopping for bras which I always do with an open window for Bratabase, and I stumble into this review of mine from June 2012, when I bought the Juna bra in Nude. I wasn't raving much about Juna, right? Well, guess what? I'm buying another one in the exact same nude color. Two years in, I must say the Juna did win me over. It's a great everyday bra and mine has a lot of mileage by now.

The lace gaps a little near the gore, but this is normal - the rest of the cup fits nicely. Because there is just 1 seam in the cup, it can have a bit of an odd shape if you're fairly shallow and don't round the cup out very well, but I wouldn't wear this as a t-shirt bra anyway. The band is pretty stretchy, I'm wearing it on the middle hook rather than the farthest one like you're supposed to start out. The gore is almost too high, but if I slide the wires all the way to the outside, they don't bother me.

I want to love this bra. I almost do. But it barely contains my breast tissue, and the seam joint shows through a lot of my clothes. I need a t- shirt bra, and this beastly works, but I wish it were thinner.

Technically this bra fits, but it does nothing for my shape, particularly in the area of "lift". The cups are wide and shallow, which will accommodate well those of us with wide roots and shallow breasts.
The worst thing I've noticed about this bra is after a few regular wearings the center gore has warped at an angle that tilts it away from my rib cage at its bottom, and stabs into my sternum at its top. I cannot identify exactly what's wrong about this center gore, but I can tell you it's the most painful gore I've yet encountered. It is the right length and ... width for me, but the weak wires cause it to deform very quickly. Compared to my Panache bra, this Panache Cleo bra feels like it's constructed with inferior materials.
From my bra fitting experiences, I feel Juna's cups are designed fairly well for the "small" end of the "large-cup-wide-root-shallow" spectrum, where designers often assumesmaller cups sizes are also narrow at the root and/or short. However, unless you get absolutely no "side spill" ever, Juna's side wings are too short relative to the height of the cups. Also, for me, the underwires are too short.
I realize I don't have the firmest tissue (or even "firm" tissue) but balconettes often work nicely for me. As long as the underwires enclose all my breasts, and/or the side wings are tall enough to prevent side-escape, even some slightly deeper cups can work for me. This bra, which "ought" to work for me, falls short, literally, in wing height and underwire length, and the center gore is just miserable.

This is my first well fitting bra. The band is stretchy but doesn't ride up (yippee!), though it is not tight enough to really enhance (i.e. lift) my dense, low-set shallow boobs. However, it is a nice everyday bra when I don't want a little extra oomph.
When I first got it, I had to push the underwires at the center gore towards the armpit end of the channel and bend the underwires away from my body there because it dug into my sternum, but the underwires no longer bother me. After a few wears, the underwires became comfortable centered in the channel. My main complaints are visibility ... under clothing because the top edge of the padding below the lace is so thick and the underwire length/shape. This bra would fit even better for me if the underwires came up higher and more vertically under the armpits to contain my tall side boobage instead of flaring out.
I have mixed feelings about the looser band: on one hand, I do not worry about reverse letterphobia, warped underwires, warped hooks/eyes, or quad boob as much; on the other hand, a tighter band would provide better support (i.e. actually lift..). Anyway, Juna is really versatile and I would recommend it to anyone who is shallow or fuller on top unless they have a very narrow root.

Edit: I've decided this doesn't actually fit as well as I originally thought. Not sure if it's tissue migration or better awareness, but it's definitely too small in the cup. I can wear it, but only under a loose top. The 28F gapes at the top of the cup however...

The bra is great for me, since it has "nike"-sign shapes wires which follow my boob root pretty well. The wired shouldn't be narrower on the bigger side (right). The center gore or rather the wires in the center gore needed some breaking in tho. I grew out of Juna in 28DD some half year ago and 28E was harder to get comfy. Also, when I have long days at the office, the left wire starts pressing uncomfortably on my ribs but that changes over the month.
Without a top there is some unused voume in the cups near the center gore but I have almost no volume there and you can't see it when I'm dressed. As usual with this bra, the lace doesn't lie nicely on my boobies but if it would the bra would be too small.
It's quite a pity that the center gore is so high that Juna cannot be worn under low cut v-necks since I love the round shape she gives me.

I have some initial disappointment with this bra. I was hoping I could get away with it as a t-shirt bra, but its seams and the cups' edges are quite visible under shirts. The top edge of the cup seams to flare outwards where it meets the lace, and this is particularly noticeable where the vertical seam meets the edge of the cup.
The fit is ok: the band is tight but not unbearably so, and a small amount of tissue seems to be pushed into my armpit. The lace does not lie flat and is loose near the center gore and straps. However, I love the rounded shape that this bra provides, so I'll be looking for something similar in the future.
