    Used to fit

    I'm not sure how I forgot to review Maddie as it was one of the first Cleo bras I ever tried in my size of 28DD, and one of the first that fit me in this new size. At the time, I found the band to be comfortably snug and was impressed with the lift and rounded shape that the cups gave me, but thought the wide strap placement was a bit irritating by the arms. I later tried a 28E when I still measured 28DD and it was predictably too big.

    Now, this bra is laughably short on me, and I've found that there is not ... enough projection even though the openness of the cup does allow it to accommodate a bit more fullness, making it a good choice for hormonal fluctuations. It no longer gives me the nice rounded shape I used to get, though I get pretty impressive Marie Antoinette cleavage since it only covers half my breasts in my current size. I tried to order this again in 28E, but Amazon accidentally sent me an entirely different bra, so I guess it's not meant to be.

    After trying on more bras with this kind of shape, I've concluded that bras with short, open cups, a low gore, and wide set straps don't work well on me. These bras tend to run shallow in cup shape, but while they sit nicely when I'm standing up straight, the wide set straps and open cups gap whenever I move. So, while 28E would have more projection and taller cups, the width of the strap placement would still cause this problem to happen. This bra is shallow-friendly and good for tall roots, and can accommodate varying amounts of upper fullness. The cups are quite wide so the proportions are difficult for narrow frames or narrow roots.

    I remember trying this style and Lexi at the same time, but ended up preferring this style. Though both fit similarly, Lexi had a really visible top edge that was obvious under clothing. The lace upper cup trim on Maddie is a little more subtle, though it appears wider.

    The main theme of Maddie is contrasting texture, and the main fabric of this bra is a shadow stripe with textured ribbing that is echoed in the strap elastic (same elastic as Hettie). I like that the fabric has visual texture but doesn't show under clothing, and is soft to touch. The cups are a little thick for my tastes and are a little firmer than other molded T-shirt type bras in my collection. I really liked the firm band on this style, as it is made from the same stretch body fabric and lined with powermesh, so it is extra firm and stable despite the wings being on the narrow side. Other than the lace on the upper cup, the only decoration is a simple button at the gore covered in textured fabric.

    I'm unsure if I will give Maddie another try knowing what I know now about cup shapes that suit my body. Though this bra runs a little small on me, it does give a nice push up effect, so I might still pull this out of the collection every once in a while for special outfits, but it isn't suitable as an everyday T-shirt bra for me.

    This bra is too small. I also don't think it's well suited for breasts with immediate projection either.

    • Sonya , you are correct Cleo Maddie is not known for lots of space right above the wire.

    This is a wonderful T-Shirt bra for support and round shaping. My only problem with it is the straps are set SO WIDE. This is not noticeable under clothing, although it can irritate my skin when the weather is hot. I hate "traditional" push up bras that are stuffed with awkward padding. This bra is lined, but not padded, and its shape gives me what I would like from a "push-up" bra without adding bulk. Because my bras size is so small, every extra bit of padding/bulk/adornment gets in the way of "natural" shaping. Maddie is similar to my favorite bra ever, Panache Porcelain, but Maddie is better for low-cut clothing.

    This makes my boobs look great! Only caveat is that I need to have impeccable posture or else this gapes at the top of the cups, creating visible lines underneath shirts. The straps can get a little irritating after a day of wear, which is something I've never experienced before.

    This is probably the best bra I've owned. The only thing I don't like is that the straps are a set a bit far apart so they aren't hidden easily under some tops.

    This bra is more comfortable than the Cleo Juna, but is still the wrong shape for me. First off, it runs half a cup volume too small. Second, the bra is designed for someone with horizontally oriented breasts and mine are vertically oriented. Third, while the straps were long enough for me, I had to set them at the loosest setting. This makes me question how it would fit on someone who is taller than me or has a longer torso. I am short and have an average length torso for my height. I don't like the cobalt color of the bra.

    This is my first bra that is my proper size (and not a 34A I'm trying to squish myself into). I think the band is a little stretchier than I would prefer, even on the tightest hook. I love the wide wires, as I have a wide base. I can tell this bra won't give me a boob-ache like my old bras. I can actually get this bra's straps and bands tight enough to support my boobs without it riding up or digging into my tissue.

    Pros: Gore tacks and does not dig into my sternum. Wire doesn't dig into armpit.

    The only con is that there is a strange little uncomfortable stitching right where the left band attaches to the cup. It's not happening on my right boob, so maybe it's due to my left/right being different sizes.

    Edit - after months and months of wear, I can confirm that the itching was temporary and went away within the first few washes.

    Gore poked at first, but has since become more comfortable. The band and wires are much more comfortable comparatively speaking to other unlined cleos. Definitely shallow friendly.
