    Used to fit

    I love the Panache Porcelain model and I'm pretty sure Maddie draws much inspiration from that iconic t-shirt bra. Maddie is indeed very, very much like the Panache Porcelain Viva; with a a few small differences in shaping and details. First of all, typical to Cleo, the band is stretchier. After my experience with Juna's incredibly unstable band, I ordered 28 in Maddie, instead of my usual 30. Maddie's cups are, again, quite like Porcelain Viva, but Maddie's cups are "open" (similar to Juna only in this respect). Also, Maddie's cups are definitely "padded". If they were even the slightest bit thicker they would feel bulky to me. (I prefer the very lightly lined Porcelain cups). It's highly likely that I will buy more Maddies, but I think the 30DD size will be work better at keeping my boobs from migrating out the sides of the cups. Maddie's band is firmer an tighter than Juna's and overall it feels more supportive.

    I normally wear a 30D, and based on reviews went one band size down and one cup size up with the Maddie. The cups are STILL too small, which is incredible to me. The band fits comfortably even if it seems to be riding up a bit in the photo (that's from me desperately yanking on the straps trying to give more space to the top of the cups so I could lie to myself about it fitting), and the cups are incredibly soft, so I'd be willing to try a 28F if not for the fact the gore is too wide as well. It sits flat, but has to push my breast tissue out of the way to do so, which only serves to cause even more quadboob toward the center of the cup.
    All of this is a shame, because the bra is VERY comfortable otherwise, looks quite well constructed to last a long time, and I am still on a quest for a skin-tone t-shirt bra that fits just right.

    • Like you, the gore was too wide for me also. If you are open to wireless options, Wacoal How Perfect wireless has space for center projection, rounds beautifully, and is surprisingly supportive. Its band, however, runs small. And, if you have projected breasts, sizing up in the band helps, too.

    • The Maddie's way too shallow for you to fit in this size I think. Do you have breast tissue UNDER the gore? If not, sizing up to 28F could still work. I have a Simone Perele foam cup (caresse 3D, in case you're interested, but it is much pricier than Cleos unfortunately) in which I shamelessly sized up to a cup volume that's technically way too big, but it works to get the projection I need at the center. The sides of the cup are empty but since it's foam that's not visible and causes no discomfort.

    • wendybien , when I first started trying on bras at the beginning of my proper fit journey, I tried on a Simone Perele foam cup and it felt absolutely amazing and looked great, but the 30 band was loose and that was on the tightest hook. The lack of band support just isn't worth the price point. I'd rather save up for a 65F or 70E Comexim.

    • oh, sorry, I just ended up going off on a tangent there to give an example of how I had sized up to fit into a bra that is technically more shallow than my shape calls for. I didn't mean that I wanted to recommend the SP for you. What I was suggesting was trying a 28F in this Cleo Maddie, because it looked to me like the main problem was a lack of space on the inner upper quadrant rather than a wide gore. The Maddie's gore isn't very wide at all.

    • My breasts are quite close together. Any gore wider than .5" is sitting on my breast tissue if it is taller than a plunge.

    • Maddie has a strange shape as far as I'm concerned. The cups are very wide and shallow, yet the sides are short, so it seems to be designed to push everything out the sides. 28DD - Cleo » Maddie Moulded T-shirt Bra (7201) In addition to the wide, shallow cups, the center gore is SO wide and the straps are ridiculously far apart. It must be designed for larger rib cages.

    Review is based on a trial, not on long-term wear. But! The bra fit me well, one of my best two. 28dd, which I wear usually, was way too small in the cups, so I sized up to 28E. The band is nice and tight. The cups may turn out to be a problem in the long run: when I stand up straight, they lie very flat against my breasts, but if I inhale extensively or start bending, the quadboob steps in. But it's a nice smooth look for everything I've tried this bra with, and the moulded cup gives a great lift.

    Not enough immediate projection, and a little too small.

    I have yet to actually go out and wear it, but from how it feels and looks like just trying it on is surprising. It feels very nice, if only a bit tight because of the unstretched band. The gore lies flat. And I'm pretty sure that it encompasses my breast tissue entirely. It holds my bigger breast almost perfectly, and just a tad bigger on my smaller breast. But I cannot comment on how it wears yet.

    • I think this looks much better, probably should've looked before leaving the other comment lol. I think if you loosened the straps it would fit wonderfully. They're obviously overtightened. I used to over tighten my straps quite a lot. It's a hard habit to quite after wear bras so long with bands too large and cups too small.

    • The straps fell down any looser. Some small corps were really loose bans, and some were tighter. This was always a loose and stretchy band, and a band too big anyway. The shape worked well though on this E cup part of my nipple would show and certain times of the month hence the F cup too. As with many bras, the apex of the cup sits too low on me

    I have quite a bit of separation (3 fingers) between boobs and they are quite shallow (and fairly even vertically, but slightly FOB), so this bra fits very well with the exception of the gore, which doesn't tack even when wearing the band at sufficient tightness. The band is too wide, which means it needed a bit of modification to fit to said sufficient tightness...achieved this by sewing the loop portion of a bra extender to the band next to the existing loops.

    I have to adjust it every 6-8 hours, but otherwise not a huge problem. Straps are perfect.

    This was a story of so close, yet so far. If it had the same width as my Masquerade Hestia, it'd be my new best. Buuut it's so wide it wraps around my ribcage and the straps are obviously too wide-set as well. The cups were wide and shallow, but had enough volume and I loved that they have nice immediate depth, and sat correctly in my IMF. Really a shame about the width. The band seemed a bit stretchy, but not impossibly so, also I sometimes buy a 30DD and alter the band down a couple inches, so not really a deal-breaker.

    November 2015: Not sure why I never uploaded pictures of me wearing this... Darn. But so far, the Maddie has been my tried and true bra and I now wear it in 28FF and it fits perfectly. :)


    Original Review: When I first bought this bra, it fit almost perfectly. The straps were really wide in the front, so if I wasn't standing perfectly erect, my armpits press the cups forward and they gap a tiny bit next to my arms. But other than that, the band was nice and firm, I filled the cups well, and they encased my tissue on the sides well.

    Now, ... the same gaping occurs, but I quadboob at the center of the cups. When I first swoop and scoop, I am exploding out of the cups, but due to the band stretching out and the before mentioned gaping due to too-wide straps, my breasts end up slipped into my armpits. I have remeasured my breasts, and retried on my bras, and they definitely do fit differently. Curvy Kate Tempt Me in 28E used to be too big, and now it just fits. The Kensie Corselette bra used to gap a tiny bit and now it doesn't. Cleo Marcie is a bit too small. Freya Ashlee half-cup in 30DD (with an altered band) is too small.

    I'm not quite sure where to go from here. After looking at other bra measurements, I don't know if I need to upgrade to a 28F or stay a 28E. Cleo bras seem a bit smaller than other brands, so maybe I'll size up in Cleo but stay a 28E for now in other bras. I haven't had much success outside Cleo Maddie and Marcie with my shape, so I'm still searching for other bras that fit well from other brands.
