    About me: size 30FF/G or 32F/FF but most comfortable in 30G. Very projected, close set breasts with short and narrow roots. Even vertical fullness and center full. Best fitting bra is Cleo Hettie in 30G.

    I think that this is the one! I'm so sad that this bra is discontinued because it is my best fit yet! The gore is low enough that it actually tacks and only digs into my breast a little (I have this happen with pretty much anything that isn't a plunge, and my tissue is too soft and center full for plunges to really work on me). I don't have any quadding, ... and the cups give me a completely round and uplifted shape that reminds me of a grapefruit.

    The only thing that I dislike about this bra is the color. The blue and pink are a just too cotton candy/bubblegum for me, so I'd like to dye this to a darker color if possible. I'm pretty young, but I've never been super girly (I prefer things that are more delicate and feminine) so this is just my preference.

      Wonderful! You may fit Curvy Kate Daydreamer and Vegas, too. But, their aesthetics may not appeal either ;-) However, if you prefer narrower bands and narrower straps, Cleo is your brand.

    • Love4Pollinators Thanks for the recommendations! I've always had a problem with how CK bras look, but I actually like the Daydreamer a lot. I've been on the hunt for a yellow bra for a while now, so I'm hoping that one in my size will turn up.

      Sometimes these models are confusing: Dreamcatcher comes in yellow, but Daydreaner does not....yet. Daydreamer has more center projection and narrower wires than Dreamcatcher.

      Lily comes in difference prints too. There is a navy one with small parrots.

      Bella and Ellis are very very similar shaped also to Lily

      Love4Pollinators sorry, my reading comprehension is clearly not the best today. The daydreamer isn't too bad though. It's difficult to find bras like this, so I'll take what I can get.

      revisa i actually just bought the parrot print lily and I'm waiting for it to arrive! I really like that print so I'm super excited. I have the Ellis in 32F and I like it, but it's a little too small so I'm trying to find a 32FF or 30G. I just got the Pixie (supposed to be similar to Ellis) in 30G today and I love it :)
      Is the Bella by Cleo?

    • 2

      Bella is by Cleo too. I'm trying to think which other ones I've tried that were very similar. My parrots lily has lasted forever

    • zygonsbzygons I have confused them several times myself and I cannot attribute the confusion to reading comprehension. ;-) The bra names cause identical "dream and sleep" associations which I have not yet rectified. Geez.

    Me: narrow, projected, FoT, close-set, center-full, soft tissue.

    Good feeling of support. I see more fit issues than I feel. Gore a finger-width of tacking. In-cup quadding along the cup seams (the joys of soft tissue), center-quadding. Cups seem to be open enough, and band feels nice and firm. I adore the colors. Up a cup size or 2 would probably be a better fit, but this bra is discontinued so it's impossible to find.

    This bra fits true to size in the band and the cups.

    I'm somewhat narrow, short rooted, mostly even, and quite projected, and this bra works very well for that.

    This bra fits true to size in the band and a little small in the cups (compared to the other colorways), but not enough for me to size up.

    I was so excited to finally find a Lily in my size, as it seems to be a very popular option in my size range. This bra was slightly too large in the cup, I think my ideal size would be a 28G. However, my breasts are also a very strange shape in this bra--I've attached photos trying to show this, but the outer sides of the cup are completely flat, while my breasts are slung forward and centered--its quite a strange look, and one I can't imagine most people get in the Lily. I'm not sure why I'm having this issue, perhaps it is due to my heavy breasts or very soft tissue, but those are just guesses. I had the same issue with the 28G - Cleo » Minnie Balconnet Bra (7431) . Its rather disappointing, because I love everything else about this bra--great colors, comfortable, and great proportions on cup width and wing height.

    • Hmm. I had the same thing happen to me. I wonder if it's just because the cup is too big or something?

    • Me, too. For me, it was very off-putting. But, the round globes this bra creates are beautiful :-)

      I wish! I didn't mind the flattened sides (it was nice having my breasts straight in front of me) so much, but a combination of the cup being too big and deep and my root being too short made the shape pointy for me. And I don't think it would have been fixed in a smaller size. Though I would like to try sometime. I loved the uplift I got in this bra and it looks so lovely on most people.

    This magenta is larger in band and cup than my 30G aqua. The band is perfect for me, same as my 30FF magenta, but the cups are too large (very loose on top). This is frustrating because I have a 30FF magenta, and the cups are just a wee bit too small than is proper for me in that one. Oh well!

    Bought at the beginning of my bra-fitting journey while still figuring out my shape before moving to Polish brands. At the time it was probably the first bra that managed to stay in my IMF, and I loved, loved, loved the profile view, which is absolutely perfectly round and super ideal; it seems to lift the bust in a way that makes your waist more visible by comparison. However, this bra no longer fits as I have lost a little weight and therefore the upper tissue needed to fill it out completely. The aqua blue and pepto-bismol pink reminds me of the 1950's... it's bright, fun, happy and very youthful looking, and though I appreciate that aesthetic I tend to stick with EM's more subdued-colored SM cuts these days.

    Initially I had problems with my Cleos when I first got them - the straps seemed to want to cut my arms off and the centre gores seemed too wide. I guess I've grown into them because they're now my favourite bras and I no longer have those issues.

    As with all of my Cleos, the wires are possibly a bit wide for my chest but they're comfortable and leagues ahead of anything else I've tried.

    So obviously this bra is too big. I ordered it on a whim a good while back because it was cheap and I was figuring out my size.

    Weirdly, the gore on this one feels fine, but the gore on my 30FF digs into my sternum uncomfortably. Not sure why.

    It's comfy, and not absurdly too big. I think I'm going to keep it around in preparation for the next time my breasts grow (as I sadly suspect they will continue to do).

    EDIT: Boobs have since grown, bra now fits excellently. Pictures now out of date.

    Used to fit

    Just arrived - Aqua, 1 cup size up from my Magenta - seems like Lily is pretty forgiving size-wise since I can fit both of these. Many say Aqua runs small in cup or band: seems to me like band is tighter than my 30FF, cups are definitely bigger (which is what I wanted, obviously). will update. Barely wrinkles a smidgen at the top on my smaller breast, but eliminates the little wrinkles I was getting where the cups meet the underwire. Guess I need to face my new size!
