    This is really small! I was bummed because I just submitted my measurements into the r/abrathatfits calculator, and I came up with 32FF as my size. Obviously this style bra doesn't fit, because it was too tight in the band and my boobs were popping out of the top! :( It's really pretty, though. I wish it fit!

      Cleos all run tight in the band, and I think most people have to go up a cup in the Juna. If you want to try again, maybe a 34FF will fit you better?

      And welcome to the site! :)

    • Thanks! I'm sort of obsessed with finding the right bra now, hahah! This site is amazing!
      And thanks for the recommendation!

    • The Juna isn't one of the Cleos that run tight in the band; it's a padded style and the unlined Cleos are the ones that generally run tight.

      That said, it's a shallow-cupped bra that runs a cup size or two small. I have average projection and usually wear 30FF in Cleo, but I have a tiny bit of overflow in the Juna even in 30G.

    • my newest juna in 32FF was a bit snug until it broke in with the help of an extender. that being said, im between a 34 and 32 band, and it just goes to 32, so i would call the band true to size. its definitely on the shallow side though, so that is more likely the issue making it seem too small. have you tried the band on upside down so the cups are out of the equation?

    • I need to research this stuff a bit better before I order from a UK site! I wish I had somebody near by that could tell me what the heck my shape is, or even somewhere I could just try bras on. I had my hubs help me do the five measurement thing for r/abrathatfits, and I drove an hour outside of town to a specialty bra boutique that's supposed to be really good. The lady there measured me at a 36DDD, and the bra I bought from her fits nicely, but after a while the center part digs into my belly fat when I sit down. Still, it's better than what I had been wearing before. I'm just confused because I know that the underbust measurement is supposed to be the band measurement, right? My measurements are:
      underbust snug: 32" underbust tight 30" bust standing 39" bust leaning down 42" bust laying down 41"

    • I've never heard of the upside down thing before coledarling ! I'll try that, though the cups are still wayyy too small.

    • oh gosh a 36DDD sounds like she used the +4 method on you. did you ever post on /abrathatfits an ask there? it looks like the cal says to start with 32FF/G, maybe youre closer to a 32G. which would mean Juna would probably have to be sized up a few cups to work, and that may make it too wide.

    • yes the cups will probably be too small, i agree. but at least it will tell you if the band size is closer to correct, and thats a huge help!

    • The lady at the boutique was older, so more than likely she did use the +4 method. Arghhhh!
      I'm not married to the idea of having a Juna, or even the balconnet style bra. I just want something that fits and doesn't make my boobs push out to the sides. Before my recent bra adventures, I had always worn a 36DD in whatever full coverage styles I could find. Quad boob city for sure.

    • i feel you, im still on the journey of finding "the one" bra. getting close though! :) we have to keep on trucking, one day the bra prince will come!

    • I personally size up in the band for the Juna because I think the band still runs a bit small. I don't have a problem with the cups being small at all (I got with my regular cup size), but I'm shallow, so they're right for my shape.

    Fits

    This is a really great everyday bra, and it is pretty and functional. It is a two part construction seamed balconette bra with light padding. It provides nipple coverage. The seams do not show as much as I thought they would, and they are unnoticeable under a patterned shirt. The seams are more apparent under light colored solid shirts.

    The lace does not lay perfectly flat when a proper fit is achieved. I got out a needle and thread and hand tacked the lace down to my liking, however my picture on Bratabase is before I altered the lace.

    The band is stretchy. It stretched an inch longer (33" on a 32 band) when I bought it new.

    The cups are shallow and open on top. Good for shallow breasts, even breasts and full on top breasts, in my opinion.

    My one complaint about Cleo and Panache bras is that the straps are not long enough to use a racerback clip, and may be problematic for someone with a long torso or low set breasts.

    Used to fit

    Good fit. Very comfortable, with firm support.
    Vertical seams slightly visible under knit tops. Lace edging also visible on smaller side, where it ripples.
    Excellent rounded, forward shape without looking dramatically big. On larger side, line where padded cup ends combines with upper fullness to create some quadraboob — wish cups came up slightly higher. Tissue spills out a bit on larger side at underarm, due to height of underwire. Underwires just barely encapsulate breast on larger side.

    Nude colorway

    Used to fit

    **UPDATE** ive taken to wearing this with an extender for an extra inch of band until it breaks in. this still keeps the band level, and also fixes the cups seeming too wide. they were being pulled too wide by the over tight band, and now i find their 5.5inch width pretty perfect! it still hasn't broken in a ton as far as fabric stiffness goes, and the material of the straps isnt very comfortable, but those are minor issues.

    i picked this up NWT on ebay because i liked how the Rhianna in 32FF i have fits, and this seems to fit a little differently. the cups gape ... slightly and the straps arent as comfortable, so im guessing it needs to be broken in more (since the Rhianna i got was quite used). the material on the outside of the cups is very swimsuit like and smooth, which is nice. the color is a SUPER intense strawberry like the name implies, and i like the contrasting navy bow on the gore.

    the band has already loosened slightly, and felt just a hair too snug on the first wear, so i would suggest giving it a wear or two as it relaxes quickly. the cups gape slightly, but i expected that given that its a molded cup. like all of the Juna cuts, the lace wont lay flat with a proper fit, but i haven't noticed it showing under clothing. the straps are a little too far apart, like the Rhianna, but not unbearable. i think if i moved them, i could get rid of much of the gaping.

    like Rhianna, the wires on this are awesomely narrow! still a tiny bit too wide, and judging from the marks it leaves, it might be a it too shallow at the bottom because it scoots down my ribcage a hair. neither of those are a big issue for me, and i find it quite comfortable aside from the stiffness of the cups, which i hope will break in with time. im not into wearing such rigid cups, but it seems they may be my only option as unlined bras tend to be cut in a way that isnt good with my shape.

    I heard this was a good bra for shallow breasts, but unfortunately it's not for me. It runs seemingly a full cup size small, and the 32FF gave me extraordinary quadboob. The 32G fit, but didn't sort out other problems. Good things: the material is nice to touch, the cup is smooth and great for t-shirts. Bad things: possibly Cleo's wires are just too narrow for me, but what I really couldn't tolerate was the tall gore pressing in very painfully. I tried padding it, but that made the cups stand away from my chest. If I'd liked the bra more, I would have tried bending the wires away, but as I wasn't wowed and I have bras that aren't actively painful to wear, I returned it.

    The wires are too tall for me at the center gore, but I may alter them because I can't bring myself to return this bra. I just love the eyelet design on the lace, and the small ribbon at the center of the gore has tiny little circles to match it. The attention to detail really shows! The lace at the top of the cups is supposed to be loose, but I may alter it as well because it shows through shirts. The lace doesn't show as much as the vertical seams on the cups, though.

    Much like the Freya half cups, there's some spare fabric at the outer ends of the underwires that help prevent pit stabbing. The underwire creaks a little bit on this one for me, but it's not constant or overtly obvious as it was when I tried the Cleo Lucy (5851) . Overall, this bra does well on my shallow shape, I may just need to make a few tiny alterations to it in order to really love it.
