NOTE: I previously reviewed this exact same bra but in 34G. So the below review will mostly be the same, with minor changes to match this size.
This bra has turned out to be absolutely great for my narrow-rooted, projected, pendulous and evenly-shaped breasts. It is comfy and the shape and support it provides is just what I wanted. Like the Cleo Meg, it tends to bring everything front-and-center, with good uplift. Unlike the Cleo Meg, however, the cups are more true-to-size here -- no excess space at the apex/upper areas. It's possible that some people would need one cup size up in the Lily compared to their Meg ... size.
A few things to note:
-I am very extremely narrow-rooted, so even this bra is technically not narrow enough for me. The underwires (cup width) are still about a whole inch wider than I need. But I don't notice this in everyday wear; they don't poke me and are generally comfortable.
-Like most unpadded Cleo bras, the band runs pretty tight. My break-the-tape underbust measurement is 33" and snug is about 35", so this same bra in a 34 band was too tight for me. 36 is just about right. I can easily wear it on the second set of hooks, but I haven't needed to.
-I may technically need even more immediate projection than this bra provides, since it does slide down in the front every once in awhile -- but only by about half an inch to an inch at most. All in all, its immediate projection is good.
-As mentioned in my review of the 34G, the straps of this 36FF are slightly wider and the wings slightly taller than in 34G.
-If you are significantly full-on-top instead of more even, this bra's ribbon-across-the-cup design may cut in for you. It's great on my smaller breast, but it ever-so-slightly cuts in across the larger (fuller) one.
