I have a 30DD in this, the 30 band I need on the tightest hook, and the cups had a little bit of quadding, and I had some side boob. Judging from that, I decided I needed a 28F and I was correct. When I first put this bra on, it felt great. The band is comfortable on the loosest hook, I fill out the cups properly, and the wires are a tiny bit wider than the DD which feels better.
I had purchased this bra on advice after asking about t-shirt bras for my shallow, wider rooted breasts. I knew Cleo ran small in the band and my 28DD/E ones were quite tight, so I went with 30DD. It's perfect. The gore tacks, the straps don't want to fall down, there's no pressure anywhere, there's no quadboob on my larger breast and no gaping at all.
Pulling out some older bras I know dont work for help to see where to go next. Center gore angles outward and sits on breast tissue. Bottom of the cups are a bit empty, and wires are definitely too wide. It gets pushed down out of my IMF as the day goes on. It cuts into my left breast pretty significantly, and even digs on my towards the middle. Hoping this will help nail down my shape so I know where to go next. I'm definitely center full, pretty sure roots are on the narrower side of average. Think my vertical root height may be on the shorter side of average, and I know I'm short waisted. This makes an interesting combo and I'm really having trouble finding bras I like that fit well.
I just really like the way this bra feels upon trying. It's comfortable, the band is really snug but not too tight. I can almost forget that I am wearing a bra!
I think it's an almost perfect fit except for the fact that the cup widths are a tiny bit wide for me. Other than that, the bra gives overall good structure and support to my boobs, and I like its pretty colour and design. The light padding also helps to give boobs an overall natural rounded look which I like very much.
There's just a little something I noticed about the 'shape' at the top of the ...cups. While the cups are really smooth and nicely round, but because it is lined at the top with lace, the connection between the cup and the lace creates this slight indent (this was the only word I could think of lol). Thus, it causes a slight quad boob effect but not because the cups cut into breast tissue. Rather, I think it's the way the lace and the padded cups connect. It seems like this indent may not be so apparent under tees and tanks as compared to just examining the bra on its own, so perhaps it won't be an issue? Will continue wearing the bra and see how that goes. Right now I am more preoccupied with being all excited about finding a bra that fits this well. Lol. Read more 133 more words
This bra simply just does not fit me. The cups are definitely too small. It also feels like I'm being squished to the front and center in a really weird way. I'm guessing a well fitting cup would fix that issue, along with the poorly fitting straps and band.
I guess on the plus side the strap sliders/adjusters won't slip out of place. And they're fully adjustable.
It's a sexy bra and well made. I bought it when I was measuring as a 32f, hearing that the cups run small (that statement was true in my case). However, the fit just didn't seem to work for me because of the lace looking loose and the straps felt too wide. Now that I'm measuring as a 32g, I still wear it and really like the appearance. I get some quadding but the lace is no longer a problem and the strap width feels better. I think this is a bra where you have to play around with the sizing to get the fit that you prefer. The gore does seem a little tall to me. But the cups are nicely projected for FoB.
I'm not in love with this bra but it's a pretty decent fit for me. It is definitely better than other bras I've owned previous to this and the B.sultry. The wrinkled lace really bothers me, but other than that the cups fit perfectly. It's a little wide, strap-wise and I've noticed that I have to re-adjust every now and then during the day. I'm editing this 7 months in and have noticed that since I have lost weight, it does not fit me as well. I'm shallow and this bra is slightly to projected for me. I can still wear it, but I figured I'd share my thoughts.
