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! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> It's really pretty, though. I wish it fit!

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.

This bra was recommended to me because I like the Cleo Maddie (which I have in a 34F, but haven't tried in a 32FF). With a 33" snug underbust, I sometimes fit a 32FF and sometimes a 34F. I tried the Juna in both sizes.
The 34F had a few small fit issues which I described in its review. The 32FF definitely fits worse for me. The band is ok, maybe a little on the tight side of snug, but not uncomfortable. The gore tacks if I swoop and scoop. However, the cups themselves are definitely too small. IMy breasts can't sit down in them, so I get a ... lot of quadding (should be visible in pictures). This doesn't seem to be an issue of projection at the wire (which is a common problem for me), but rather just the whole cup is too small. As with the 34F, there is an o-ring on the strap between the soft, padded section of strap and the adjustable portion of the strap. Unfortunately, this bra fits me in a way that puts that o-ring at a weird spot on my shoulder that wouldn't be comfortable for all-day wear even if the rest of the bra fit.
Ultimately, this is another miss for me.

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.

**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.
