I have shallow wide root boobs that are splayed and have been having no luck finding bras, but I think this one may actually work for me.
I really like the boost this bra gives to my boobs, the band fits well and the straps are not too uncomfortable. There is an ever so slight gap near my armpits, but it's hardly noticeable and the bra looks great under shirts.

I am so excited to find this bra. I have been unsuccessful with moulded cups due to my soft full on bottom shape. I usually have a ton of empty space in the top of the cup. This bra is different. I still have empty space on my smaller side (plus the bra arrived squished on that side so it is poking out a bit there too). However on my larger side it fits perfectly. It lifts from the root and gives a nice bit of cleavage. The shape is perfect. It is a little plungy but my soft tissue doesn't spill out into the middle. The band seems pretty firm, which is good because I had to order the 30F because the 28FF was sold out in Black and the "Nude" that they had is not nude on me. I am glad that I read the reviews that the cup runs small. I definitely would overflow a smaller cup. I am a 28F in my Bella, and Lucy, and Millie. I have the Marcie in a 30E.

For times when I want a moulded bra instead of unlined, this is the one! It doesn't make me look significantly larger, and provides my breasts with good shape. I'm still pretty new to buying bras in this size and have yet to find something that shapes as well as Maddie. It doesn't have a ballet/u-back which made me nervous at first, but it holds strong anyway. This bra gives me an uplifted look without crazy cleavage, which I really like.
Cons: it gives me a bit of back bulge (but I have yet to find a bra that is supportive that doesn't), and the lacey edging on the cups can show through shirts.

At this stage in my life, this bra is the best fitting one I own. I have breastfed two children and lost a substantial amount of weight. I refer to my breasts as basically zip bags of water. Very soft tissue, any fullness I have is on the bottom. They are also average to narrow root width and fairly close set, but not touching. This bra works for me because the molded cups are on the thicker side and very firm, with seriously forward projection. No east-west worries in this bra, at least in my size (30F). I have a friend who has this in a 32G and she's not fond of the shape it gives her, so this may be a better one for the lower volume cups.
The band fits exactly as I expect a Cleo 30 to fit, slightly more snug than Panache or Freya, but not uncomfortably so.

I thought this might be the bra for me, but it isn't .😔. It is nice and I love the appearance of the blue. The band fits well on the second hooks but the cups are too wide, the top of the sides of the cups rubs my arms. Also, the cups may be a tiny bit big, they are fine right after scooping and swooping, but it doesn't stay. And a 30e is much too small in the cups. Time to give up on this bra.

This bra is really cute and well constructed. The band fits nicely and feels comfortable. I just kind of spill out of the top some in this size. Hoping to find one that fits well, as I love it other than that.

I like this bra because it really does disappear under shirts. Where the strap is connected to the left cup irritates me for some reason, and only on that side. Other than that is comfortable and I fill it out well.

First of all, make sure you check the elastic on the wings before deciding to buy this specific bra. The elastic strips were RAZOR sharp on mine, and still dig in after wearing this bra all day though I want to assume it was a combination of the band being so stiff at first and perhaps being slightly flawed in manufacturing or something. The cups are pretty stiff as well, but this bra can conceal me in the coldest weather! The wires were a little too high for my liking, making it uncomfortable to lay down in certain positions. The shape I get is really great though, I have a lot of upper fullness so that might be part of it. No cup wrinkling on the bottom, and it gives a nice round yet slightly compacted shape. At my height the straps are way too far out to the side, and are nearly sitting in my armpits.
Eventually the band has stretched out enough that it feels comfortable, so this hasn't been too bad as my second real bra.

This was my first attempt at a bra that actually fits (along with a 30F - Freya » Deco Moulded Half Cup Bra (4232) ...so I used an average of a bunch of bra calculators (non-plus 4" ones) to get 30F (but I knew going into it that it might not fit bc a) I'm in between measurements and b) got a range of measurements from a 30FF to a 32DD. So, given this range, I think this was a pretty good first try--not perfect, but definitely close.
The Pros: smooth under clothes (with the slight exception of the trim showing under clingier fabrics). Comfortable: the ... gore tacks, doesn't poke at the top and is close enough for my close-set breasts; the underwire goes up high enough, but does not jab; straps are fully adjustable; the bra doesn't move around.
The Cons: [mostly due to the wrong size, not related necessarily to the bra itself] although the underwire sits perfectly around my outer breasts, the top of the cups where the straps meet is just a bit too wide and digs into the muscle/tendons of the inside of my shoulders/underarm area; I fill the bottom but have some gapping at the top (probably can pinch 1/2" of the cup right beside the straps); band is too tight, must wear an extender (I use 1 hook or 2 if I have to wear it for more than a few hours); the nude shade is a bit too dark for me, not a true nude for my light/pale skin tone (but might be good for medium skin tones); the straps are tan--and don't fade as much as I would prefer under strappier shirts).
I'm between a 29.5 and a 31-ish, depending on the day/time of the month, and definitely found the 32E much more comfortable than this 30F. [Although this is my first "true"-ish size bra, so it might also be a bit of a comfort issue related to the very loose, stretchy 34C bras I'm used to wearing.] Regardless, it tight enough that it cause a great deal of bulging on my back. Stretch-wise, it seems kind of stretchy, more so that than the 30F freya mentioned above (even though that's technically longer in the band, in stretchiness alone this Cleo Maddie seems proportionately more stretchy.)
