This bra is for sure too big for me.
I have now tried every size other than the one I likely need in this cut or sister cut (28DD, 28E & 28FF). I love the darker colorways and really think this fabric is cute! Should have gone with my gut and strayed from this size, but I couldn't help it!
Anyone with a 28F in this or a sister cut care to trade?!

I have swan colorway, and that was love from the first sight. The band is true to size, but the cups run bigger ( at least 1 cup bigger) and I have wrinkling at the top. I'm going to alter the cups ( to make them smaller) but even with this problem bra looks very nice and gives very round form under clothes.

I owned this bra in 28F previously, but it was always slightly too small, which is why I preferred my 28F Parrot Print Lily. Now it's my 28FF Aqua that fits better out of the two. It was previously owned, so the band has been stretched, and I wear it on the tightest hook. Other than that, it's great. Great wire width, shape, gore tacks, straps mostly stay put. Overall a great bra.

I've discovered that this, the Parrot Print Lily, runs slightly larger in the cups than the solid-prints (ie. the Aqua). I also bought this second-hand from someone, so the band is stretched and I'm wearing it on the tightest hooks. Other than that, it fits fantastically, gore tacks, cups are smooth and round, wire width is great. All around a fantastic bra. I first owned it in 28F and when I grew out of it I knew I had to get one in 28FF.

Fits just like my 28FF - Cleo » Lily Balconnet Bra (7351) did, only slightly more open in the top section as the Swan print is known to be. You can reference my Parrot review for all the nitty gritty details, as I don't have much different to say about this one.

I love the bright colours of this bra but unfortunately the Lily no longer seems to be my perfect bra. This aqua version seems a little bigger than the parrot print one, leaving wrinkles in the top part of the bra.

I have this bra in the swan print. I want to love it. It has the potential to be perfect.
The band is nice and snug, which I like.
For reference I have a wide root, low set, full on the bottom breasts that herroom defines as "settled."
This bra I think has cups that are designed for a more forward projecting narrow root.
After several "swoop and scoop"s I can get it to work and have everything stay in place, but it just isn't really designed in my opinion for wide rooted girls who don't have a tremendous amount of forward projection. If I altered it a tad, it ... could potentially be a wonderful fit, but I think my root is just too wide and I have too much auxiliary tissue trying to get stuffed in a bra not made for that purpose.
As said, though, the band is nice and snug, the wires will stay in place, the shape is just wrong for me. I will probably keep it though, because it is adorable and maybe it will be kinder to my roots when "broken in."
The cups are entirely to close and high for me. I am swooping and sxooping ALL DAY and its a shame because it's darling. Cleo just probably isn't the brand for my type of breasts.

Love the aqua and pink Cleo Lily, but the band runs tight! It only stretches to 28" (I was hoping for 29" like the data here suggested), so I have to wear it with an extender. Other than that, the Lily is a great fit for my soft, projected boobs. Gives a nice, rounded, lifted shape, and is mostly invisible under a thin t-shirt. The lace has no give to it, but that means that the shape does not distort throughout the day. Gore is very narrow and stable (far better than the gore on the Lucy in the same size, which is wider and somewhat unstable for me).
The only cons that I've seen so far are that the tags are somewhat itchy (though, in the humid 90F heat, everything feels itchy) and the hooks are so close together that my extender doesn't fit them properly (they're the same width apart as the hooks on my Ewa Michalak S bra!). Straps are also somewhat wide, but I never felt them slipping.

The top most of the cup digs into my breast tissue and a little of the lacey bit below it has empty space. I'm gonna try it in a 28G but I really hate the colour. I love pink. But it just doesn't work for me. I wish Cleo but thicken their straps at least for FF and up. Marcie, Lucy, Minnie, Lily all have fairly thin straps. It's also a little wide for me. and my breasts are a bit close set for it.
