My shape: narrow/average root width, tall roots, projected/very projected, immediate projection, even fullness.
The cups on this bra are an excellent fit on me - they are narrow and deep (very deep!) where I need it, while the stretch lace top works well with my tall roots. These days I'm neither as soft nor as shallow above the apex as I used to be; if I were, I would not be able to fill out the lace top of this bra. So if you have tall, shallow roots, or are FOB, I'd skip this one.
I get a very forward projecting, round shape in this bra which I *love*.
The ... band is too big (I'm a solid 30 back these days), but I got Kayla in a 32 for less than £10 new on Amazon so I'm not fussed. At some point I'll take it to a tailor and have the band shortened, but given that I'm small busted this is not a priority.
I bought this bra because I heard that the cups are similar to Cleo Blake (my best fit, and first perfect fit). Previously I had been buying 28F/30E in shallower cuts, but I tried Cleo Blake on a whim in a 30DD and its fit on me made me realise I am a projected/very projected 30DD. Kayla is deeper and narrower than Blake, and that I fill it perfectly confirms my suspicions.
Appearance-wise Kayla is cute. I have the white abstract print with white and purple lace, it's a little loud for my usual tastes but the classic Cleo details make it more fun than fussy - neon pink scalloping and hooks, purple sliders, purple bow at gore and purple thread through the lace. Given how comfortable it is and how good it makes me feel, I'd wear regardless of appearance. Definitely a new favourite.
