    It fits!! This is the first bra I've gotten that actually fits without any need for alteration! Plus, I really like the rounded shape it gives me, and the color is an awesome electric blue (Malibue Blue).

    The Lucy runs true to size, with a tight band, wide wires, medium height gore, and a classical 3-part balcony shape. It worked well on my wide root shallow boobs with medium projection. I am even shaped and the Lucy is known to work well on full-on-bottom to even; but it will cut in on full-on-top boobs.

    Comparing the two colors I own, I noticed that the band runs stretchier on the yellow than on the navy. It might have something to do with the dyeing process: Fabrics in dark colors always run a bit tighter/less stretchy than brighter dyes.
    Also, the yellow one is a little bit more closed on top (the lace part is tighter), so it's cutting in slightly.

    I loved the feel and look of the bra. Especially being the first unlined one I've tried. However, my breasts didn't quite fill the top, since it wrinkles, even after scooping and swooping. It doesn't quite have the tall sides to take in the underarm bulge, either. I really wish this fit, its so pretty and comfortable.

    This bra is used, but still firm and like new for me to use. The lace is a little stiff but not to annoying. The bra color is not faded, like some bra lace gets when it's been used and washed. But I've found that the Cleo Lucy is the most inconsistent shaped bra EVER! So try at least 3 of one size before you know if that size doesn't work for you, I had to, and I'm glad I did.

    This bra was a recommendation from someone on the ABTF facebook page. I never thought an unlined bra would fit comfortably and look nice on me, but I'm so delighted I was wrong. This bra is comfortable, gives a nice shape, and is pretty.

    Doesn't make me look pointy or give strange shape as other unlined have done. Love the look of this bra. The fabric, design, construction- everything! After wearing this all day I did find myself having to fix my tissue in the cups. Gore started to dig into center/close set tissue. Also, the cups aren't too small, yet the line of stitching where the lace is sewn to the top part of the cup slightly digs in & gives an (unnoticeable with a shirt on) slight quad effect. Maybe a 32D would help with this? Not sure if my tall roots are "pulling" the fabric too tight?
    Edit to add: I think the cups aren't close enough for me, but still a great bra that I've been wearing in regular rotation this summer !

    Oh, how I wanted the Lucy to fit. I had a lot of hope in this bra.

    The most important thing to note (for me), that I wish I had known ahead of time, was that where the mesh meets lace on the cup, would create a quadboob, making the portion covered with lace looked oddly puffed up, even though I still had some wrinkling at the very top of the cup. No amount of swoop and scoop could make this bra enclose the breast tissue near my underarm (tail of spence). The cups just did not come up high enough and give the type of inward/forward support ... I need, while at the same time, it rubbed that area painfully, even while just wearing it a short time.

    The band on this black 30DD was significantly tighter and less stretchy than the band on the 30E in Malibu Blue. The tighter band fit snugly on the loosest hook and felt like it'd probably be the right size for me. (It is worth mentioning, I am still a beginner on the bra search journey. I have found that 30 bands really vary significantly between brands. While Natori fit snugly, Freya and Panache seem like I should consider sizing down to a 28.)

    It's a pretty little bra, definitely not built to create cleavage. At this point, I believe I have wide-set, splayed, wide-root, pendulous, fuller on bottom (or equal, when bent over....but with deflated upper breast tissue that's almost non-existent when standing), shallow (because of the extent of the ptosis and the size I was to begin with) breasts. I have recently come to understand that the 32 B/C push up bras I have been wearing for 20 years have created a rather pronounced bulge of tissue between underarm and breast (tail of spence). Any cup in my recommended sizes, that doesn't pull that tissue in, is going to be too big in the cup.

    I'm giving up the on Cleo Lucy. It just is not the right style and shape for me. This one is going back to Amazon and the obsessive quest will continue...

    • This is the exact problem I had with Lucy too. I really wanted this one to work and tried it in a multitude of sizes. When I finally got the "right" size, that bulge at the lace/mesh seam was a heartbreaker. Sorry this happened to you too!
      Your description of your boobs sounds almost identical to what I think mine are. It has been frustrating and horribly time consuming but with Amazon prime I have persevered!

    • It's so frustrating with these boobs! Did you finally find something that you really liked?

    • In cup quad is that problem, and it's quite common with all Cleo unlined bras. Marcie was the worst offender for me. Your tail of spence doesn't need to be in a bra, it's not in any of mine. If I had a bra wide and tall enough to enclose it, it would be far too wide and tall for my roots. You look like you could get along with a Curvy Kate Bardot. If you can track down the discontinued black and purple colorway, it will be much cheaper than the new red and black one.

    • sereneindeed, Cleo maddie, Cleo Andorra plunge, freya long lines and some half cups. Parfait by affinitas Charlotte. It's all so individual to each of us! the women here are a great help. Good luck!

    This is the first bra I've tried in out-of-matrix sizing. I've used a few reputable bra size calculators and they seem to think I'm a 28E/30DD. Well, I can say that the construction and detailing on the bra is very pretty, but does not fit. I fill out the bottom nicely, but there's major wrinkling near the straps, lots of gaping at the top of the cup.
