    This is a very old discontinued style. You can still find it on ebay in a few (not so mainstream) sizes like 28J or 28D. But it was my first properly fitting bra so I still review it

    The colors are fun. I like to let it peek out a little under a dark tank top with spaghetti straps. But it also works with a white shirt since the light orange doesn't shine through too much.

    The cups make a very round shape. Their fabric is a bit thicker then the normal Cleo mesh which makes it looks very smooth under clothes and prevents my nipples from poking though ... even if they don't align perfectly with the seems. It felt a bit rough at first but became more comfortable washing it. The wires are incredibly firm, stiffer then all of my other bras. They don't distort at all and follow my IMF perfectly without digging in. They are also somewhat closed on top. Combined with the rigid fabric this gives excellent support without looking “full coverage”. The downside is that the is no room for size fluctuations. Sometimes I put this on with a bit of wrinkling in the morning and the cups are filled out perfectly by noon and even a bit too small after eating lunch. The band is very snug and narrow, which does horrible things to my back fat. But it feels good. It also didn't stretch significantly in the 6 month I have it now which is amazing considering that I wore it almost every day in the first couple weeks.

    • This is adorable on you!

    • Very cute. There is a navy blue and red print in the listings in the same size if you want a second colourway of it.

    • It's very pretty. Too bad it's discontinued!

    • Thank you all!

      @Calluna, thanks for making me aware of it. That is so tempting but can't really justify getting more bra at the moment (I already have over 30 with like 10 brand new ones still in the package) and I only have one pair of boobs afterall.

    This bra is one of my favorites as the lift is together and up. It has very stiff fabric and cut, so it may not be ideal for very top or bottom heavy boobs. My are fair even and soft.

    The band is nice and tight and firm and even after a few wearings, it hasn't stretched out. The straps aren't too wide apart. The gore is a little wider than I'd like. I do best with .5 inches or less, but it's not unbearable.

    Very cute print in a salmon color with magenta edging and straps.

    The Cleo Meg is the best not-quite-fitting bra I own. I put it in the "not-quite-fitting" category because it's made for someone more heavy on top than I am. It's clear even in this front view shot that there's some gaping going on at the top of the cup of my smaller breast (my left one). But this slight gaping doesn't compromise its support or the way it looks under clothing.

    So I'm extremely happy to keep it. The print is gorgeous. I can't believe I didn't find it attractive the first time I saw it in pictures. I wish Cleo would make bras in more prints of ... this type instead of going with dots or other prints that are not as elegant as this one.

    Band is very true-to-size and perfectly snug and comfy on the first hook.

    To reduce the gaping of the left cup, I have to shorten the left strap quite a bit more than the right one. It's the first time I have to do this to that extent but it works for me.

    Placement is good and they're fully adjustable.

    I love the red accents! It goes so well with the midnight blue and it gives the bra a little something extra.

    I just HAD to have this bra in the navy & red print when I was starting my bra trek. Cleo Natasha was my first true bra and I was jazzed over how well it fit, and figured this was similar enough and so damned gorgeous. It's plenty gorgeous, but too big for me most of the time. When I can fit it, I don't like the pointy shape and how the top ribbon cuts into what upper fullness I have. This bra also plays meanly with many of my shirts, the seams, wrinkles and ribbon making lines galore. The wires are too wide and leaves a lot ... of empty room in the sides. The gore is too tall and I'm very aware of it while wearing Meg, if not in a degree of pain later in the day. Meg has the infamous hard Cleo wires. I also feel very exposed in sheer bras, but that's just a personal issue. An altered 30dd fit my volume better most days, but every other fit issue remained.

    The band seems like a tight 28, but certainly not a 26. The materials seem like they'll last a while.

    I want to alter this to give a rounder shape once I have more sewing practice, but until then it's a cautionary tale in my bra drawer that gets worn around home every so often.

    This bra is altered and it is MUCH smaller than the measurements suggest. I think it would fit a 26E/F or 28DD/E well because of how small the band is and how shallow the cups fit. The alterations are not noticeable at all, but they are 100% there! Good workmanship for whoever did them originally, but unfortunately not a bra for me.

    The bra is really cute, I took a chance on the 28F because I got it on sale for an amazing price. I'm usually a 30/32 and was hoping this would work with an extender, but I think I would have to use a couple extenders to make it work. I sold this before I had a chance to measure, so I'm not sure if it was a small band or true to size, just know it wasn't working for me. The cups did fit really well though, I might order another in a 32DD maybe, will have to check measurements to figure out what size to try.

    Very cute, well-fitting bra. The band is nice and firm and the cups generally fit well. My only problem is that the top of the cups cuts in slightly too sharply, which causes slight wrinking in the apex of the cup on my larger side.

    This bra! SO GREAT! Lift the girls and puts 'em together, which is just what I need! Definitely one or two cup sizes too big, but I think I need to find the right cup size so I can see how this fits then! Can you tell I like this bra? I just realized I've been writing exclamation marks like crazy! :P Love this bra. :) Oh, and I've got two of these.

    After trying the Meg in 28E, I had such high hopes for the 28F. The 28E cut into the top of my boobs and prominently displayed my armpit fat. Since I love the bird print of this bra, I was hoping the 28F would be perfect. The wires are wide enough for me, but there are a whole host of other issues.

    The 28F still manages to cut into the tops of my boobs. As an added bonus, my smaller boob can't fill out the top of the cup, causing some wrinkling. Perhaps if the bra were made of softer material, it could be ok. But, the fabric is pretty stiff (not uncomfortably), so it's not as forgiving.
