I really had high hopes for this bra, considering I have had good luck with the cleo Maddie, and this was supposed to be an updated version. The cups are really small on this and much more enclosed than the Maddie. I'm not sure if a cup size up would fix this problem or if it's just the wrong cut for me. It did not feel similar to the Maddie, other than they are both molded balconet bras, but they are cut very differently to me.
I've recently loss some weight that's affected how all of my bras fit - that is to say, they don't. I bought this from another bratabase user and it fits! At least as well as I expected it too. I like the appearance and the quality - standard Cleo insides and materials. The bra gives a nice rounded uplifted shape, and is not visible under the t-shirt I tried it with. The band could have been a little tighter (it rides up on the loosest hook) and is definitely looser than the 30-bands on the Marice and Riley that I have, but not as loose as the Juna's. ...The wires sit right on my IMF and as long as I stand up straight and scoop&swoop like I'm supposed to it's a perfect fit. Anything else, however...and I've got some gaping on the outer upper corners (which you can't see through a shirt, so that's good) and/or a little quadding near the gore on my bigger breast. I am still getting to know these new boobs, and I'm having trouble filling out cups in general, so it's hard for me to judge/compare the cup size. My gut feeling is that the cup is smaller than on the Juna 30E (gaping much less severe on the Lexi) but if it's not (I haven't checked the numbers) at least the shape is infinitely better for me, so that's a win. Definitely keeping this one! Read more 133 more words
