    Fits

    So, I finally got the Lily to try in 28F (and was super excited). It's not perfect on me. The band is wonderfully tight (stretching to only 26.5 inches). The cups are very narrow and projected for the size range, but they're a bit too wide and tall at the very tops for me. I get a tiny bit of gaping at the top and the straps are definitely too wide. The gore is almost too wide, but it's workable. I do absolutely love the shape this gives! I didn't really believe that my breasts would go into this shape without moulding, so this may become my go to bra despite its issues. Cleo Lily lovers, do you have any advice?

    Used to fit

    I have this bra in the parrot print. The band runs tight, it's probably closer to fitting like a 26 band. It's a lot more closed on top than the Hettie, but upper fullness is still needed to make the upper section lay flat since it doesn't stretch. Overall I was disappointed with this one. I expected it to be more projected. It does have some immediate depth, but it's not enough. It's not comfortable because it feels like it's really smushing my boobs. I imagine this is what in cup quadding is. It gives me a very lifted, round, and super minimized shape. I don't appreciate how minimizing it is. This was one of the bras that made me realize I needed to delve into Polish bra.

    I wish I could order this bra in a plunge style; every fit issue seems to be due to the gore sitting too high on my chest, and even with that problem it is currently one of my most comfortable bras. The 'orange in a glass' issue is because the gore height limits how high the cups can sit - aside from the wrinkling, they contain and support very well. The tops of the cups do gap easily from trying to sit the straps closer together, but it seems to be more due to soft breast tissue and a full-on-bottom shape; the wire width is perfect, and a smaller cup size would have the wire sitting on breast tissue. I would definitely try more Cleo styles in future, since the band is snug enough to fit a 26, at least on the tightest hook, so riding up is minimal compared to other 28s I've tried.

    I can wear this bra with an extender until the band stretches a little bit. I have the navy print with birds. It is a very cute bra. I really like this bra. It seems to run small but thank God not as small, as the Cleo Melissa. I can't wear the 28F Cleo Melissa. The band is too and even with an extender I get in cup quad boob. 28FF Cleo Melissa was too big when I tried it on. What's the deal?

    The Lily is a tricky model for me. 28E has been my trusty Cleo size for a while now and my first Lily was in a 28E. I thought it fit OK when I first got it. The only issue I noticed was that the wires/wings were quite short on the sides, allowing some tissue to escape. However, as time went on I noticed the cups cut into my larger breast a lot and were causing quadboob, so I decided to try a 28F.

    I think I'm just not the right shape for this bra. This 28F "fits" -- the volume is about right, there's no wrinkling/quadboob, etc., but ... it looks too full-coverage on me. I don't think it's the fit that Panache intended. I believe Lily is supposed to be a lower-cut model, but I just don't like the armpit fat effect it gave me! The top of the cup is not very stretchy either and it doesn't allow for much fullness. I fill out a 30DD Marcie perfectly, but I quad out of the Lily in the equivalent size. It's not obvious due to the dark material, but I don't completely fill the bottom of the cup, indicating it's indeed a little too large.

    As far as general info, the band is on the stretchier side of a 28. The material is very comfortable. Unfortunately, it does feature the signature super painful Cleo gore that will need to be broken in.

    Gorgeous bra. Confirms I'm definitely a 28 band but too small in the cup for me - quadra-boobing. I would say this is more due to me being between F/FF than the sizing of this particular bra.
