My first attempt to more structured (read: not soft cup) bras. Like many others, I was in need of a basic bra, something I could wear under white clothing and that would not show nipples. This looked perfect for that end - the lace makes it prettier than most basic bras.
The band on this bra IS stretchy. I usually buy 34 bands in Panache and Cleo (and sometimes even a 34 feels too tight for my 32'' back...), but on this 32 I can fasten on the second hook easily. I could not, however, do a 30 band. It also fits me way better on the second hook ... than on the first: this gapes on my smaller breast, which is something I wasn't that much used to since it's not as noticeable on soft cup bras. I also sized up in the cup, having read it runs shallow, and I don't regret that. While it gapes on my smaller breast, it fits PERFECT on my bigger one. I guess a pad could fix the issue.
The straps are a bit too wide-set for me, which is a new one, as I have wide shoulders.

This is a pretty bra with foam padding. It seems to put your breasts more towards the front.
The top of the bra doesn't cut into my breast tissue, but I do spill over the top, and this is far more noticeable in a shirt than with just the bra.
The band also feels a little loose, as though I would want to wear it on the second or possibly third hook. I feel like the bra "rides lower" on my body than other bras.
There is nothing uncomfortable about this bra (except it doesn't fit... but nothing pokes).
I plan to return this bra (it came in an order, I'm trying it on...)

I really love this bra. The gore was the first thing I noticed - lying flat for once! Typically the balconette design doesn't work for me, as I am fuller on top and usually spill out. The little bit of lace here helps to smooth things out and overflow is much less of a problem. I still have very minor quadding and the band feels the slightest bit tight but I know that 32 is correct for me, so I think going up a cup size will balance things just right. The underwire extends into my underarm area a little more than I'd like, but it's not painful and this is the case with any bra that actually holds all of my breast tissue, so I'm happy to accept that.
The overall quality feels and looks great, sturdy but not rigid, feminine without being too flashy for my taste.

I got this lightly used from another bratabaser, and I like this bra! It's very soft, and has just a tad more immediate projection than Freya half cups, which is perfect for me. It does not push my boobs as front and center as unlined Cleos do, but not as far to the side as Freya half cups. It gives a nicely lifted round shape.
It almost works as a t shirt bra, if not for the stupid lace that won't lie flat. Weird design choice, I'm going to cut it off.
I have a little bit of quad boob in this, so think the cups are ... on the small side compared to the unlined Cleos. I'd like to try a 32GG to see if that fits better, but maybe I'm in between cup sizes for this style. The band is quite loose compared to other Cleo styles, I can already wear it on the tightest hook. So perhaps I should track down a 30H to try next.
One other weird design choice: the straps are not fully adjustable, and I already wear them almost as tight as they go, even though I am not short at all. If you have very high set breasts, or a very short torso, the straps may not adjust short enough for you.
In all, I like it enough to keep as a basic black t-shirt bra for smaller boob days, but I'll try to find a 30H to see if that's better for me, and look into EM half cups as well inv the future.

Sadly too big, but I love the Cleo Juna (6461) that I'm determined to find the correct size!

The cup volume of this bra seems okay, but the lace trim does not lay flat. The gore is too high and digs into my sternum, and the cups cut into my armpits. It is pretty though, for a basic bra, and I like how it moves my breast tissue to the front instead of letting it hang out by my armpits.

This is a pretty bra. The band is very stretchy, and I can fasten it on the middle hooks. By fastening it on the first set of hooks, the cups "droop". The lace is set on at an odd angle, but doesn't seem to show under shirts. Anyone very full on top will likely need to go up a size, as this seems to be a better fit for bottom heavy cups.
EDIT: The cups aren't big enough in either a 32G or a 30GG - they look okay, but by the end of the day, I hurt on the sides and have overspill. I wore the 32G ... for two days, at which point I was on the tightest set of hooks with the shoulder straps bearing most of the weight. Further, after having it on a while, I get overspill. I agree with everyone - if you're full at all on top (and I'm not overly so), size up. I need to try a 30H in this bra, which I'm going to do - I think the shallower cups are will work well once I get the right size.
EDIT EDIT: I talked to a fitter at Breakout Bras, who said the Juna underwires don't go back very far under the arm - so anyone with much breast tissue on the sides isn't going to get a good fit with this bra. I asked for a credit rather than an exchange.
