    Used to fit

    I have even to slightly FoT breasts but they are super squishy and slightly splayed. This bra works pretty well for me, being a bit too small but not enough to cause problems. The cups have a little bit of puckering and a little bit of quading as well as being slightly too far apart from each other. The gore width doesn't hurt, only leaves marks that last for days (as per all of Cleo's bras) so that's how I know it's slightly too wide.
    The colorway I got is super pretty even though I'm not very girly and it being coral and deep, saturated pink. It looks feminine without being high maintenance looking, princess-ey or childish. I still want to try the Lilly in 28F though because the Swan print is super pretty!

    • Does pinching the gore closer help with the fit?

    • I don't think there is room to do that. The wire channels are already as close together as they can be.
      I think I just need narrower channels that are still close together or a lower gore or overlapping wire channels.

    Beautiful bra, too shallow on bottom for me, very stiff underwire.

    Very pretty! It arrived with some of the red stitching around the red mesh panel unraveling (ugh). My boobs do not have the projected shaped necessary to fill out this bra. The wires and the bottom of the wire were great, but the top cut in and wrinkled. The band is firm, but less so than Cleo Marcie (6831) or Cleo George (5131) in 28E. This bra is awful for shallow shapes, but the shape is quite rounded and lifted under thick clothing. The fabric is stiff enough to not reveal how I feel about the ambient temperature.

    How I made it fit:

    Since I didn't ... want to deal with return shipping (or if the vendor refused the return because of the unraveled stitching), I sewed down the "George" fold, basically turning this 3-part balconette into a 2-part vertical seamed balconette and hiding the unraveling stitching. Depth- and shape-wise, it fits very similarly to my Cleo Juna (6461) in 28E. I would recommend this bra and alteration combo to any shallow ladies out there who have difficulty finding an unlined bra that fits.I definitely prefer the stiff fabric of this bra to the stretchy mesh of the Marcie. The alteration can make this bra a little more open on top than the Marcie (i.e. sometimes I quad in Marcie but not in my altered Meg), depending on how you do it. Also, it's been a couple of months and the band is still firm.

    The band is very firm. I prefer this (as I measure 26" as tight as possible) but it may be uncomfortable for true 28 bands. I also would not recommend this bra for shallow girls, which is common in this size range. I have an unusual amount of projection for this size range and am pretty even in terms of fullness and still have difficulties filling out the top, which is a shame because I absolutely love this pattern. The lace is very stiff so it would definitely be noticebale if there was any more wrinkling than I currently experience. I wish they would make a Juna cut with the Meg pattern! Anyway, this bra is 100% for full on top girls, which is rare in this size range so shallow or full on bottom girls should probably steer clear.

    This cut of Cleo doesn't work for my boobs. My boobs seem to be shallow, so I fill out the bottom of the cup but I get a lot of gaping at the top of the cup. This bra would work better for someone fuller on top.
