OUCH! The first time I wore this, the top of the wire at the gore dug into the inner side of my breast tissue and has left a dent in my skin that's still here after like 3 days! I have now bent the wires forward at the top and when I put it on it sits much more flatly on my chest rather than pushing into it. If you have problems with gores you may want to try it at home before going out and being stuck in it. Standing up straight with my arms back, it fits perfectly, but if i move my arms together the top wrinkles. I think it's a very full on top style.
My naked breast/chest perimeter is 38.5", with this bra on I measure 38", much higher on chest though. Gives great lift. I fill out bottom of cup. Lift is good enough that my nipples end up at the lace of the top cup. Wires may be to wide. Band may have been altered in some way before shipping, bought as new of Ebay, but you never now. Had to pull hard on band to get the 33" stretched measurement, and I can comfortably wear a 32F in this bra. The 32F fits better, but this 36DD allows for more projection. This 36DD has a high enough gore that the underwire do not poke my breasts like the 32F I own. Wing height is a little tall as it rubs my armpit.
This is being shipped back since it is the wrong size.
It felt too tight the first time I wore it, but after wearing it the second day, it was comfortably snug. It left red marks, but was not painful. The cups want a little bit more top fullness than I have, but otherwise this is one of the best fitting new size bras I own. The wires are a wee bit narrow, but maybe that's just because I'm not used to wearing this size of bra. I don't think it was breast tissue it was pressure against, but just my side in general. Again, not painful, just something I noticed. I felt it made me look small in the chestal area but I'm used to push up and molded giving me porn star cleavage so what do I know! I think I could benefit from going a band or cup size up. The colors are brighter irl than they are in the stock photos, and I love it. The colorway makes me feel like it's summer all over again.
I had an orange in the glass effect with this bra, where the fabric would wrinkle at the top, yet cut into my skin. Not the most ideal bra for someone with shallow breasts. Also, the line between the lace and the animal print part near the top can be seen through somewhat tight tops.
I've worn this bra a few times now, so I can actually make some worthwhile comments. This is actually one of my best fitting bras but some problems remain (whether I will ever be able to solve them is unknown)
* The wires seem too wide, I'm bulging out at the sides and they're under my arms.(this is probably partly due to the centre gore being too wide for me as well) * Unless I keep perfect posture all day, the centre wires poke into my sternum - I think I have a bruise there from slouching yesterday. * The straps are too far apart and want to saw my arms ...off. Of course, this wouldn't be such a problem if I didn't ever need to move my arms forward and it also seems to be par for the course for balconnets - can't someone make a balconnet with the straps just a smidge less wide? * The centre gore doesn't sit completely flat but that's because there just isn't enough room between my breasts for it to sit flat. * When I first put the fit in for this bra apparently I marked it as top of cup being wrinkly - to be honest, it's barely/if at all noticeable and I'd change it but I find it really difficult to figure out where to go on this site to change things once they're done.
When I was fitted at Bravissimo, for some reason she said that I should be wearing it on the smallest hook. Not only did that not make sense to me but it was damn uncomfortable so I wear it on the loosest hook - it's still firm enough for me.
All of these issues are replicated in my Cleo Juna.
I also agree with another reviewer who felt that the mesh did not match the animal print, maybe they had heaps of that mesh and needed to use it up? Read more 210 more words
This bra does not fit very well, but I absolutely love the neon-coloured animal print! I also tried the 32DD, which I had expected would fit, but the band was clearly too large, so I think I'm just going to have to accept that I now need a 30 in Cleo bras, although I don't know if it's because I'm smaller or their bands are just stretchier than they used to be. It's listed here as a Marcie-cut bra, and I suppose they are similar, but my best fit for the Marcie is a cup-size up from this one.
Love this fit. Very front and center, uplifted, for my narrow-root boobs. The 30 band in this Maya feels stretchier than my 32 band in my 32G - Cleo » Natasha Balconnet (6841). Also, this 30GG fits better than my 34FF @Cleo Meg. I can't quite fill the top of the cups in the 34FF Meg, but I don't have that problem in this 30GG. Note--I am finally finding my correct size! I've had the cup volume right for a while, I just couldn't accept that I was actually a 30 band (have gone from 34FF to 32G to now a 30GG during the last several months, even though I have measured 29" this whole time). I love the brightly colored animal print!
