    This review is for SS14 model, which is a red, although I find it is more an orange red rather than true red.

    I find the band is a teeny bit snugger than my 28G orange/white Lucy, eventhough both stretches to 27.5"-28". I like my band to be snug, so I don't mind it one bit. Another thing is, I don't know if it's just me, but I feel that the underwire casing on this one is a little...thinner and flatter? I'm not sure, but that was the first thing I noticed when I held it for the first time. It feels different. Maybe it's just me.

    As for the fit, it is consistent with other Lucy I have tried, shapewise, liftwise, etc. And as I have been doing to a few other bras, I cut off the inner lining to make it completely sheer. It doesn't affect the fit one bit! I love it. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    I just got this bra and I am happy with it. It is beautiful. My under bust measurement is 70 cm (very tightly 68) and the band felt very tight. But I am sure it will stretch, though 30 would surely be more comfortable in the beginning. Lovely rounded shape and the purple color is just stunning. Under wires track my boobs almost perfectly (about 1 cm narrower would be perfect). Straps felt a tad stiff at first, but after wearing it a few days they are very comfortable. Overall I am rather pleased with Cleo Lucy.
    I also got the matching panties in size 12 (M) and they fit nicely (loose, not cutting in and stay up just fine) hips 94cm and the place where the panties sit at upper hip 90cm. I am guessing size 10 would be good aswell.

    EDIT: The band is too tight for my taste and I will need 30FF next time I buy this style.

    My first bra after getting re-sized for weight loss and discovery of the proper way to size a bra. I measure a 27.5 around my ribcage and this bra is pretty tight, I'll probably get an extender for it before wearing it regularly. Cups fit very nicely, underwire is a good width and gore sits perfectly on my chest.

    I would love to try the same bra in the sister size 30FF to see if that might help with the incredibly tight band.

    Not much lift, but still gives a very nice centered and rounded shape. A personal favorite.

    The center gore sometimes chafes at the bottom end (thin, stiff fabric) and the more loose mesh used in the upper parts of the cups can create a slight quad-boob-y bulge on softer breasts at the seam between the different materials.

    For me, the bra makes up for its slight flaws with its good fit. It's also very lightweight, and made with soft materials that conform well to more finicky breasts.

    (Review for the yellow colorway)

    Pros: I received this bra from a fellow Bratabase user. I love the sunshine-yellow color. I thought it would look gross on me, but once I put it on, I felt a little energized and quite cheery! There's even a cute pink bow at the center gore. Lucy hides nicely under clothing and gives a very natural, flattering shape and is good for "bottom-heavy" and "evenly-full" breasts. I could see this bra being heaven in the summer given the mesh fabric's breathable quality.

    Nitty gritty: straps are fully adjustable, band runs true to size. There is microfiber on the underwires (on the portion ... facing your body, of course!) and the straps--quite a nice comfort detail if you ask me!

    Cons: Unfortunately for me, Lucy was too small in the cup. To give enough slack on the straps to accommodate my larger breast caused my breasts to look ridiculously lop-sided. The lace on Lucy cut in on top on my larger breast and couldn't contain the tissue should I wiggle about or bend over. My breasts began to pull the gore apart, too, which was weird (not as in shred/wreck it, more like put strain on the poor thing). I'm sizing up a cup to see if this is worth saving/compatible for me.

    This fits my measurements perfectly - the only problem is that the wires dig in a little due to it being too tight (I'm a bit between a 28 and a 30) but otherwise it's perfect and I just throw an extender on for now!

    Used to fit

    I used to have this in 28FF and in that size, it noticeably cuts in my bigger breast, and had obvious quadding. I had to take in the centre gore to make it more open on top but doing that makes the band even tighter on my 27" ribcage. I also had spillage on the sides and the shape was somehow not that round.

    So I sold that one and got a 28G. The fit is way better. It still cuts in my bigger breast, but only when I roll my shoulder way back. For usual movements, you won't even notice it unless you stared. A 28GG would be too baggy for me. I also have no spillage in this size, and the shape is round! Perfectly round and lifted. I love it. The width of the cup (5.5") is also perfect for me. I did not experience any poking nor rubbing in the armpit. This bra is comfortable and I can see myself reaching this bra often in the near future!

    This blue version is very uncomfortable.

    Confusing because I have a Lucy in Black in 28G that fits great.

    Lucy is not a very comfortable bra though. I find the lace very scratchy.

    The cups seem slightly too big on this at first (even after swooping and scooping) but throughout the day seem to be cutting into the top of my breast tissue and leaving a quad boob effect. Not keeping this one.

    German only:
    Meine Kritikpunkte wären:
    -viel zu viel Nylon und Elasthan. Das 28-er Band lässt sich so weit ausdehen wie ein 32-er Band!
    Normalerweise sind 28-er für mich schließbar, aber untragbar. Den Lucy habe ich absichtlich ein UBB kleiner gewählt und das Gefühl, eigentlich ein 30-er Band zu tragen.
    -der Steg ist zu breit, er liegt zwar an, knickt aber in der Mitte zusammen. Stört jedoch nicht beim Tragen oder in der Optik, könnte sogar von Vorteil sein, da keine Stegbrötchen mehr.

    Mein Fazit: Ich liebe ihn! (hat man nicht erwartet, weil ich am Anfang nur gemeckert habe, stimmts? https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> Aber beim gefühlten 100. Bh steigen einfach die Ansprüche, was die Begeisterung jedoch nicht mindert)
    Für ein 28-er Band sind die Bügel erstaunlich schmal, sonst habe ich in diesem Größenberei immer Probleme mit viel zu weiten Bügeln. Diese sitzen perfekt.
