    As someone who is a bit more even than full on bottom, I find this bra to cut in a bit. It also comes up very high under my armpit, and by the end of the day, I find the wires bothersome. The band feels tighter than my other 36s. It does give a lot of support, and a more natural shape.

    Snug in the band will try with an extender and see how that works. I like the shape it gives me and hope with the extender it will fit the only issue I see with this bra.

    Okay this is an update after putting in a fit request.

    I was ready to return the bra (I had the package all set to go with my hubby when he left for work in the moring) after ordering an extender and it becoming more uncomfortable until I read this blog in one last google search to see if I could make the wires love me http://brasihate.blogspot.com/2012/01/what-to-do-with-those-pesky-wide.html now I did ... not bend the wire the same as her but with the bra on I gently but firmly bent the wires to be more friendly to my shape and can I just say......... it is Amazing! So the 36FF fits after wearing with an extender for a day and being uncomfortable because it changed the way the center gore interacted with my ribcage. I put it on with the "alteration" sans extender and it is everything I have ever dreamed of and more in a bra. AF started today and I needed to add the extender again but with some minor bending it was comfortable just like when I didn't have the extender added. So I think it is safe to say this bra fits. Yay! So if you are considering this bra things to consider are:

    -It does not stretch easily (which is good if you want your bra to last)
    -The wires suck but can be minorly manipulated to be super comfy
    -You will probably need to wear this bra with an extender for a day to help stretch (but not overstretch) the band
    -If you find the right cup fit but the band is a bit snug it might just be the right bra and it just needs some Dr. Frankenstein time
    -AF sucks

    Great fit but really uncomfortable! My breasts are narrow-rooted, short-rooted, slightly splayed, projected, and FoB. This bra fits my shape better than the 36FF - Cleo » Marcie Balconnet Bra (6831) . The Marcie had a lot of empty lace at the top that I couldn't fill out. That's not much of a problem with the Lucy; there's only a little extra space under the lace and mostly towards the center. I get a little bit of orange-in-a-glass wrinkling at the bottom, because I could use shorter and more projected cups. But that's very hard to find, and this is close enough to overlook. This ... bra lifts and brings my breasts front and center with a natural but not too pointy shape that makes me feel 10 years younger. It looks fabulous under clothes. The base peachy-pink color is nice but I'm not a fan of the bright orange embroidery. The gore tacks fully and feels firm but not too high. The wires are a good width and don't poke me under the arms at all. The straps are set awfully wide, like with many Cleos, but I can tolerate that. What I can't tolerate is the overall feeling of harshness when I wear this bra. The fabric is scratchy. The wires press the rough narrow seam at the bottom of the cup directly into my flesh. The bottom edge of the gore feels sharp, and the bottom edge of the band feels like it's pinching all around even with an extender. I wish I could stand to wear this bra because it fits well and looks good. But I just can't stand to wear it for more than a few minutes. A wash and soak in fabric softener didn't even help very much. I wish they made a bra with the same cut but softer fabric and smoother seams. Preferably with the straps not set so wide, too.

    • Sometimes things soften with washing? not sure if its worth the risk tho

    • I did wash it, and soaked in fabric softener. That helped a little with the scratchiness but the seams are still really rough.

    • I had a similar experience with the Cleo Juna: probably the best shape match and fit I have ever had in a bra, but so hellishly uncomfortable! :(

    • You could see if the fabric on the Kali is nicer to your skin? Or one of the other sister cut bras.

    • I found the Lucy intolerably itchy too, even though the Marcie and Lily don't bother me. It's unfortunate!! I've never tried the Kali.

    • I loved the shape of the Lucy, but I felt like it was trying to cut me in half. I even tried an extender and bending the wires, but it still gave me cuts where the underwire started to curve away from the gore.

    This bra seems to be a bit wider and more shallow than my current best fitting bra Cleo Lily Balconnet Bra (7351) . The cups seemed smaller than my other FFs and I got some east-west and quadding. The bra seemed to flatten me since the cup was too small and too shallow for my projected shape.

    It runs about a half cup small, great support, looks pretty.
    Some gap in top of cup,I have shallow on top breasts.
    I have worn it for about a month and it has not stretch out.
    a bit scracty at first but after a few washing it feels fine.

      You can always go to "Edit" in your bra and change the size.

    Thought it was too small but it's just the wrong cut for me. Not supportive enough for my heavy breasts. The material too thin and elastic, the seams dent into soft tissue, underwires too narrow, I can't fill the bottom of the cups. The material feels a bit scrachy.

    - Band is comfortable, and I like that this bra has a wider band on the sides
    - Underwire is about the same as the Deco—a bit wider than my breast root but not bad
    - Straps seem too wide and dig into the front of my armpit/shoulder when I move my arms forward
    - The bottom part of the cups seems to fit okay, but there is a lot of wrinkling at the top, and the top edge does not lie flat
    - The gore seems a bit tighter than I like, and it is a little too wide at the bottom, but this is not intolerable

    This bra fits pretty well. I have not worn it for a whole day yet but I like the shape it gives me. The cups are a little big at the top causing some wrinkling but not a lot. When I swoop and scoop the cups are much fuller but the tissue sneaks out as I move around. Fits pretty well. It is a step in the right direction.

    loved the width of the wires, shape it gave me and color (a very pretty bright purple) but there was such obvious quadboob I had to return it.

    This bra is great on me until the end of the night. At the end the underwire is poking into my underarm area. Otherwise very comfortable. The band may also be a bit big, however I was uncomfortable in the sister size 34G. This brand of bras seems to give me the best shape.
