    I had a Lucy in a 28G which was cutting in and wanted to check if a bigger size would help that. The 28GG still cuts in at the top along with all the other issues I had with the bra.

    I am even, narrow and projected. The Cleo Lily works well on me; the Lucy really does not.

    The cups are way too tall and too wide on me. I think the band is a little small on me as well, which made the gore quite stabby as well.

    ~Purple colourway, SS2013~
    Also see my review in Pink/white, 30G, from SS2011: http://bra.pe/XIJO/

    Heh I'm stumped. This Lucy fits much better than my pink and white 30G Lucy. I don't even understand. I'm mostly going to be comparing the differences in this review so check out the previous one if you're interested. Pictures forthcoming.

    First major difference: the upper section is much more closed in the purple than in the pink when the straps are comfortably adjusted. Purple fits me almost like a second skin, just like my Marcie (bra.pe/XJIc/). It does have the potential for quadboob on my larger breast but only if I push my shoulders back ... a whole lot.

    Second: the bottom has enough projection and the bra doesn't slide down. The elastic on this one is also more comfortable for some reason. I am using an extender right now but I was able to wear it fairly comfortably without the extender. I do prefer looser bands and straps and I don't want to stretch this one out too quickly.

    Other differences from 30G - straps are thicker, wider and more padded. The hooks at the back are spaced further apart (but still only two https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> whai Cleooo).

    Soft lace, attractive garment.

    The fit wasn't quite right -- the wires felt pretty good, but some quadboob on my fuller side and possibly tissue squished into my armpits. Will return in exchange for trying the 28H.

    Description: a navy blue unlined 3-part constructed cup with white/pink/purple embroidery at the cup's edge. Straps are fully adjustable.

    Pros: this bra fits me like a *glove.* I love the support and comfort of the bra! Cleo gives me a natural "my-boobs-but-better" shape and is good for everyday wear. There's a good mix of forward/side projection to mimic natural gravity-defying boobs. The undersides of the wires/straps also have a soft microfiber to prevent chafing and rubbing--a small detail I greatly appreciate.

    Cons: The band does need to be broken in a bit before I can wear it comfortably (hooray for extenders!) for an extended period of time. The straps also ... get larger once you hit GG+ on the Cleo bras and I'm not quite sure why I need these gargantuan straps on my 28GG :\ I could do just fine with the straps on the 28G, kthx

    One last personal gripe: I HATEHATEHATE the cutesy detailing at the edge of the cup. It's a mixture of white/pink/lavender flowers and cutesy polka-dots along the edges. I can sew down the polka-dots, but I'm stuck with the cutesy colored embroidery (not my thing). I wish they would have kept it a solid color similar to the colorway like the embroidery on the Cleo Lucy in purple, yellow, black, and white.

    Very stretchy band and wide wires, otherwise it's so comfy!

    Used to fit

    I absolutely love this bra. I got it in pink and in black and I do think the pink one runs a tad bigger than the black one. It hasn't streatched out and it gives my boobs a really good look because it gives them a lift few other bras manage to do. The band runs a bit bigger than your average 28-band but for me it's not a problem.

    SS12 Bravissimo Exclusive "Lime" Fashion color version. I had to exchange the original purchase measured in this review for quality, received an identical in same size reviewed here: 28GG ().

    Band length: 59.9cm
    Cup width: 14.3cm
    Cup depth: 29.0cm
    Wire length: 28.1cm
    Cup separation: 2.5cm
    Strap width: 1.8cm

    Quality: 3/5 (is very supportive yet delicate... will survive the entire summer season?)
    Comfort: 5/5
    Appearance: 5/5

    I am super pleased to say the fit is 100% identical on this bra to the current widely available SS12 Yellow version. Sometimes there is a slight fluctuation in the actual bra make so I decided to try both a 30g (http://bra.pe/RdB/) and 28gg just like Lucy in Yellow. Please see my fit review for Yellow 28gg here: (http://bra.pe/RcB/).

    The color is quite difficult to capture on camera. It is perhaps best described as a "fluorescent green highlighter" color. I am in love.

    Measured immediately before wearing.
    Purchased mid-June 2012 from Bravissimo.

    Review for "White" continuity color.

    Band length: 57.1cm
    Cup width: 14.4cm
    Cup depth: 29.0cm
    Wire length: 28.8cm
    Cup separation: 2.7cm
    Strap width: 1.8cm

    Quality: 2/5
    Comfort: 4/5 (1-star deducted for cutting-in shape, makes me feel less comfy overall)
    Appearance: 4/5 (same as above)

    I liked both Yellow and Lime Lucy so much from the current SS12 season I figured I may as well continue collecting and pick up the regular continuity versions too. Lucy in "White" measured about 2cm smaller in the band than the others (Yellow 28GG: http://bra.pe/RcB/ and Lime 28GG: http://bra.pe/Rdt/). Initially I had to add an extender but after wearing for a few minutes I realized I could take the extender ... off and fasten it regularly on the first hook. This one fits just as well as the other two. My only qualm is the cutting-in effect that Alexa (http://bra.pe/R2w/) is known for. I just don't get why this bra would have it and the other two wouldn't. Maybe I received a slightly irregular one. Either way, it has to go back for now. I hope to try the Black version and then attempt the White again from another store soon.

    Measured immediately before wearing.
    Purchased & Returned early-July 2012.
