I'd say this bra would work well for someone needing fairly narrow wires and immediate projection, along with a lot of upper fullness (which I don't have).
I'm even to full on bottom, projected, fairly narrow, and pendulous. I'd say the band and the wires are a good fit for me. The band does stretch to 33", but it's plenty firm, and I wouldn't size down. The major issue for me is the cups have a lot of empty space at the top. I'm not sure if the cups simply run large, or if the bra just wants a lot more upper fullness than I have. I'd really need to try a 32F to know for sure.
This bra is DEFINITELY for the FOT/tall rooted ladies. I'm even height and full all-over (3/5-6 on the fullness chart) and I get some serious gaping which is visible under clothing, yet I also get some in-cup quadding. The straps are also a lot wider than I'm used to with Cleo, so I get some odd gaping between the strap and the wire - then, since the wires are fairly flexible, I get more of a nike-swoosh shaped wire which makes my tissue do all sorts of weird things. If the problem was only the gaping mesh cup I'd try and alter it, but all of this together is a bit of a dealbreaker for me.
The bra is reasonably pretty and comfortable otherwise though, although not the highest quality (I had some loose threads on the design on the mesh cup) - it's certainly projected enough!
This bra looks great and feels very firm across the band - I could probably go up a size. There isn't so much support at the top so I'm pouring out of this one - great looks but not so much support. Another bra that has those annoying stitches in the straps preventing the wearer from making the straps really tight so I'll have to alter it - wish they wouldn't do this! Otherwise I love the look, colour, pattern and fun pink straps.
Really excellent shape. I don't have enough upper fullness to totally get rid of the bit of gaping, but it's a great bra throughout my cycle as it accomodates a little extra room when needed. I don't worry about the gaping as it's not severe nor does it show through clothing. I notice there's also room for me towards the center, so I imagine this would be good for those with extra center fullness.
I tried this bra on at a boutique. I don't have enough upper fullness to fill the cup and all of my tissue is shoved toward the gore. It looks weird, it's too much. I think I need a bit more projection everywhere but esp at the wire. I tried on a 34ff which was good in terms of immediate projection but had so much more loose fabric at the top.
Lottie is sturdy with lots of projection. The wires about average width, maybe a bit on the narrow side. The printed non-lace part of the upper cup is almost velvety. The upper section does close off sharply and has no stretch at all. I have an almost ridiculous amount of upper fullness, so I had about 2 cups worth of quadboob just from being squished out of the upper cup. The lower cup gives a lot of lift. The band is a very soft silky material, not like the scratchy powermesh they used in Cleo Lucy Balconnet Bra (5851) and Cleo Marcie Balconnet Bra (6831) . I didn't wear it long as I am returning it, so I can't say how it holds up or adjusts with time. The structure was similar to Cleo Millie Balconnet Bra (7231) .
