It is really hard to find a bra which fits me in both the back and the cup. In the case, the cup is too small. There is spillage though and I think I could have tried a GG, but the band in the 28GG was way too big. Even on this one the back is too big - it's not so big that it is unwearable, but I have to fasten it on the tightest setting already. And even on the tightest hooks, I can fit my hand under the sides and it rides up my back. My back is 25", so finding a bra that fits ... my bust and back is difficult. The wiring at the centre of the bra does tend to dig in a bit, but compared to others I have tried it is not too uncomfortable. A smaller back and bigger cup size would provide more support and a less flattened out shape, if this existed in a 26H I think it would be perfect. As it is the back is too big and the cup only just fits half of my breast, it's very literally a "half cup", so my nipples sometimes pop out of the top! Overall the fit is not good, but I love everything else about it.
edit - sadly this is now completely unwearable as the double-boob effect has reached new levels of terribleness! It's really unfortunate because it's a gorgeous bra and "true" balconettes are a great shape for me. I really wish the bands in this bra were smaller as then I would try a 28GG or even 28H, but there is no point trying a new size when the bands are so loose.

I really wanted to love this bra. I really, really did. But the center gore of pretty much every Cleo bra I've tried has dug painfully into my sternum, even if I bend out the wires. Plus I don't get the lift I want out of it.
This bra fit okay for a brief period of time, but it was short-lived. The straps are too thin for my tastes, they slid down my shoulders, and I never felt supported at all. While the measurements are similar to my Freya Deco, this one always felt more poorly constructed and like it was just barely holding me up.

I was never a fan of this bra so I didn't wear it much. I'm very full on the sides and the vertical seaming did nothing to help pull the tissue forward and center. Instead, I appeared to splay out. Did not care for the molded cups either. I felt it ran a bit small in the cup. If you are FOB or your nipples are lower it might not be an issue for you.

Not a lot of projection. Firm feel to all the components, comfortable. The shape is VERY round, good under button up shirts but not a very natural look - depends on your preferences.

This bra was close but not quite for me. After reading advice on Amazon saying to size up in the cup and seeing that a returnable 28G was on sale, I ordered it.
The good: comfy fabric, "cakes on a plate" cleavage, it fit everywhere except:
The bad: It came up too high on the outer cup/strap region to be comfortable. Also, the band was a little loose and it felt overall less supportive than my 28FF Cleo Lilys. Finally, the wires are too wide on me, but wires are always too wide on me.
If I get the chance to try a cheap, returnable 28FF Juna I probably will, as that might solve both problems. Or it might just replace "cakes on a plate" with megaquad.
FWIW, I am even with center fullness, some projection and narrow roots.

First day wearing it feels too tight, but afterwards its alright. I'm inbetween sizes 28FF / 28G so I bought the 28G to fit for the larger breast, so the smaller side has a slight gap when I raise my arm (due to the position of the bra straps being too close to my arm/armpit). No quad boob effect this way though, so I'm happy.
- This bra fabric feels nice/smooth and has round padded cups.
- The band fits snug and its fairly comfortable.
- The balconnet style bra straps are too far apart and feels like it was designed for wider shoulders so then on at 28 band it doesn't fit that great.
- The lace lining on the top doesn't lay flat so I ended up sewing part of it to make it more taut to wrap around the top part of breasts (without having to wear the bra with 1 cup size smaller)

I really like this bra! It gives a nice, rounded shape, and is super comfortable. The material is really soft, and the lace adds a cute touch to a basic t-shirt bra.
I also own this in a 28FF but I got some quad-boobing in that size but that issue is resolved in the 28G.
I would say the 28G fits me pretty well, except for the wires are maybe a cm or two too wide, but as the rest of the bra fits me well and gives me a nice shape, I can live with that.
One thing is that the lace does not lie flat when the bra is the correct size. I believe it is supposed to look like this. It looks a little odd as is, but under clothes it isn't noticeable. If the lace lies flat, it means that you are getting some quad boob that the lace masks.

This is the bra I reach for the most on an everyday basis.
It's so comfortable, and it's also pretty, which I really love about it. Sometimes DD+ bras can feel like really intense engineering, which I really appreciate sometimes, but this bra just feels so comfortable and pretty that I will actually be picking up another one in the ivory (I have the black). This is one of the few bras I plan to purchase regularly.
The shape is really nice - the lace at the top holds me in nicely, and the band is supportive but not too tight. I do get a hint of quadboob, almost more of a hint of square shape, but it's still really flattering even from the side. It's also so fricken comfortable that I can totally reconcile myself with a little bit of overflow. The lace also makes it really forgiving, especially for when breasts fluctuate over the course of a month.

Very comfy, just wrong cup size. It's great but I don't quite fill it out on the top, and I don't think it would be nice to alter the cups...

This bra is a very soft material so the fact that it comes way under my arm/goes next to that little area where my chest turns into my armpit, isn't a problem. If the fabric were scratchy at all, it would hurt a lot. the cups go way under my armpit. The band appears to run pretty big because it is riding up a little in the back after wearing it around for very much time. The lace doesn't lay super flat/wrinkles, but apparently that is normal for this bra? If I stand with good posture, I don't have much wrinkling at all. The straps are definitely too far apart for my narrow shoulders, but you could get away with pushing the straps inward a little since the fabric is so soft without it pinching under your arm. I do like the shape of my boobs in this bra, quite round, but not that well lifted because the band is too big and the straps won't adjust short enough.
