I found this NWT very inexpensively on Ebay and thought I would give it a shot, as I love my Cleo Marcies but have had trouble finding a good size in Lily since it's been discontinued. Previously I tried a 30G aqua and a 30FF magenta, and neither seemed to work. This fits nicely with a couple hooks of an extender to start out, as my underbust is 28" and this one runs quite firm in the band, so I find the shape is optimal when it's not being pulled to max tension. I think my best size would be 30FF, the same as I take in ... Cleo Marcie and Alexa.
I don't love the colorway at all (especially the neon orange straps) but I'm totally willing to overlook that because the uplift, centering and rounding this bra provides is just magical! It makes your frame look narrower from the front, and from the side it gives a beautiful globe-like profile. It feels very contained and secure, at the same time that it provides a very subtle cakes on a plate effect, almost like an unlined half cup would. There is excellent depth at the bottom of the cup and near the center gore, the fabric is smooth under shirts (even if the color is more difficult to disguise), and it's comfortable to wear all day. Overall, it's a great fit for my narrowish/projected and even shape, and I think it will be a great workhorse bra for me.

Like the shape, lift, and firmness (stiffer fabric). Not a lot of projection, not pointing a little up or down - basically a round shape. Like the look under clothes, good for buttoned work shirts as well as t-shirts. New favorite bra for sure.

Perfect fit for projected, even, narrow breasts. This is my favorite bra.
The band is rather tight. The cups are made of a not-too-stretchy material (yay) and it's not lacy (double yay).
I love the shape this bra gives - the 3-part cut gives a lot of lift and pushes the breasts forward. It does seem to have a little bit of the center-seam quad-boobing effect, but it's not visible under even my tight tank tops.

This bra works really well with my breast shape! I feel like the girls are happy when I wear this bra. It makes my boobs look AWESOME and way perkier than I ever thought possible, especially under shirts!
Cons- the 28 band is a little too tight for me, but I might need some adjusting to a tighter band in general from the 34Cs I was wearing before. Also, the straps are a little wide for my frame. It's a little too soon to judge how uncomfortable that will be with daily wear.
Other cons noticed - Wires are less than an inch too wide for me, but not really too bothersome. Wing comes up a little too high, but weirdly only noticeable and irritating on the right side. Some wrinkling in the bottom of the left cup, but I noticed I wasn't situating the bra exactly on my underbust line.
However, I HAVE gotten used to the 28 band, or it stretched out a bit. Either way, the band size no longer feels too tight.

Fits me well except on my larger breast, in that case I have a little stray tissue on the outside. Overall I really like this bra though.

In general, people say Cleo Meg is a tricky fit, you either get quadboobs or the top is too loose, but Cleo Lily is much easier to fit for most people. It is on the contrary for me. I can fit nicely in Cleo Meg, albeit a little space on top of my smaller boob, but otherwise it is fine. In Cleo Lily, I have quadboobs. Under loose top it won't show, but with tight shirts, if I pull my shoulders to fix my posture to stand straighter, you can see the quadding.
I find the top of Cleo Lily is a bit too closed for my boobs. I ... would say I am even, leaning to FoT. The sides are also a little low for me, Cleo Marcie is higher. As for the wires, although I find the Lily and Marcie are of the same width (5.5"), somehow I feel that Lily wires go further behind my back than Marcie.
I would say Lily would suit people who have FoB boobs, just like Cleo Lucy. Other than that, the shape, strap placement, etc are of the usual quality of Cleo. The fabric of Lily is softer than Meg.

I would tell my friend that they should buy this bra because it is wonderfully comfortable and absolutely beautiful.
