    After reading the reviews here, I opted to go for a bra that would be one cupsize smaller than my usual size - 28H. And it really fits! I get a teeny weeny bit of quadraboob when I breathe in deeply, but otherwise the top of the bra sits flat against the top of my boob and sometimes it even feels a bit empty.

    The front-on shape I get from it is splendid - the bra really puts your boobs out there and all of a sudden, I looked much narrower in the chest area than I usually do, which was a definite plus. The side-view is, however, not ... really that awesome. The shape is a but odd, even though I decided I kind of liked it after a while. But I have to choose my shirts carefully, which isn't the case with my favourite bras.

    This is also the first-ever bra in which I've experienced a puckering - I just don't fill in the top front part of the bra properly, even though the top ribbon, only a few centimetres further back, sits firmly on my boob-tissue and cuts in when I breathe in deeply.

    All in all, the Meg is truly a beautiful, firm and well-made bra, but its shape is (at least for me) so odd that I can't squeeze myself into the cups. I am keeping this one, but will probably not be buying bras of this cut in the future.

    --- EDIT ---

    I've had the Meg for a year and I have grown to like it a lot! It makes my boobs look perky and pushes them forward - also, for some odd reason, they actually look smaller.

    The puckering hasn't gone away, but I hardly notice it anymore. Also, it must be something about Meg specifically, not the other bras in this shape, because I've recently tried on a Zia, which, in my opinion, is of a similar cut, and there was no puckering at all.

    Perfect fit with extender. I agree that this bra runs large in cup (I usually need 30H in Cleo). Most narrow and projected english bra I ever had. Good for short roots.

    This bra was too closed off on top but had too much volume at the upper front of the cup for my tall but shallow-on-top breasts.

    It is a nice, subdued design coming from Cleo's land-of-neons. The cups run about a full size large, and the band is looser than other unpadded Cleos.

    I've tried the Cleo Meg in both 28GG and 28H, and ultimately kept the 28H because the cups on the 28GG were giving me a distorted shape (not rounded like I prefer) and I was spilling out of the sides of the cup. Although I get some space at the top part of the cup I will never be able to fill (this happened in both sizes), the 28H was the better fit.

    Here's my take on the bra:

    Cups - I have breasts that are neither full on top nor bottom, they would be considered even. As mentioned by other reviewers, this bra would work best with full on ... top ladies. On me, although there's wrinkling on the top portion, the rest of the cup is doing a great job at supporting. The material of the cups is very sturdy and lifts your breasts front and centre, with very little effort!

    Centre gore - digs in a little and sits on some tissue as I am close set (not going to be an every day bra for me, probably a once a week bra)

    Band - the band feels true to a 28. It's stretchy enough that the cups don't grind on your ribs if you have less fluff in your underbust.

    Straps - fully adjustable and soft. No problems with it digging in. The straps are ribbed so the adjuster stays put.

    Appearance - Very, very cute. I love the bird theme and finishings and splashes of red all around.

    Overall, it's a comfortable bra to kick around in after work while wearing a loose tank top and is a welcome addition to my regular rotation. While I should probably stay away from similar cup shapes from Cleo, I don't regret keeping this one. If you are considering this bra, I would say it is true to size, however, make sure the cup shape is right for you!
