The Cleo Kayla is a really, really pretty bra, and for the most part, I really like to wear it. The stretch lace does a great job of encapsulating my soft tissue, full on top breasts, which is always a plus. The underwires are too wide, but that's something I've found is consistent with bras from British companies. In terms of quality, Kayla is decent, but I wouldn't say that it's a bra that'll last for an exceptionally long time. I'd say that I take pretty good care of my bras (hand washing them, not wearing them back to back), and I've just now reached the last set ... of hooks after a little over a year and a half of owning the Kayla; I have some bras that I've had for longer and worn about as much that are only on the first or middle set of hooks. Also, the bad does feel a bit flimsy, even when it's tight. The straps are very thin compared to most bras I have and are incredibly flimsy. Luckily, this doesn't bother me too much, but I could see how it could.
In terms of shape, the Kayla is very round for a non padded bra, which is exceptionally important to me as I love having boobs to the sky cleavage and a round, round, round profile (both not quite there for Kayla but are acceptable for my high standards) and basically live in Freya Deco Vibes. The Kayla is comparable to the Cleo Lily in this regard, in my opinion.
Mostly, I like the fit of my Kayla. One thing that I notice with it, though, is that my boobs tend to move away from the center after I've worn it, which is strange because in bras with lower gores like the Freya Deco Vibe, for instance, they move towards the center. I've attached some pictures of this.

Me: very projected and narrow-rooted, even to FOT, center-full, soft tissue.
By all measures, this one fits. It fits better than any of my other bras. The gore tacks gorgeously, and the cups are great on the sides and top. The depth seems perfect at the apex and the top. (This is the only Cleo deep enough for me.) The cups have a little wrinkling in the bottom near the underwire, smoothing out as they approach the apex.
As well as it appears to fit... it's just not particularly comfortable. I keep putting it on then taking it off to put on something that doesn't fit as well but I like better: Cleo Blake, CK Portia, etc. I also like the Cleo Kayla in 30GG better even though it's pretty obviously too big for me. It's not as supportive because it's too big, but the band feels better.
Maybe there are subtle fit issues going on here that I can't detect with the naked eye, but can only feel.

I'm so glad that this was recommended to me! I have close set, very projected, even breasts with narrow and short roots, so I've struggled mainly with depth and wire size on past bras. The wires on this are narrow and they aren't the shortest, but they're short enough that this is comfortable and not digging into my armpits. Because I'm close set, the center gore digs into one of my breasts a little, but I've had that problem with most non-plunge bras. The straps on this are a little wide for me, which causes a small amount of gaping at the top, but overall I love the fit.
