This bra fits true to size in the band and about a cup size large.
I'm somewhat narrow, short rooted, mostly even, and quite projected, and this bra works very well for that.
I have this in a cup size smaller than what I usually wear, and that seems to work pretty well.
Because of how the top of the cup is shaped, I do get some odd puckering, but this bra is pretty known for that.

I got the bra preloved. This is an adorable bra, but its a little too big for me. The band had been a little stretched out (and it is quite comfortable as a stretched out 30). I ended up getting one in a 32E and it fits much better. I'm not sure if it is because the cup runs as large as they say, or because my boobs are smaller than I thought. The wire digs in under my arms, not sure why. It seems to be in the right place width wise, its not too high and I don't have any boob escaping over it. It just digs in. If I keep adjusting it eventually it stops and it doesn't bother me for the rest of the day, but it still seems odd. All in all a well made bra, and good for my shape, just a little too big.

I really like this bra. There's a touch of wrinkling at the deepest point of the cup on my smaller boob, but nothing that would affect the fit. The top doesn't show under shirts the same way the scalloped top of the Cleo Lily does, which is a definite plus. A lot of people have complained about the line at the top and how it cuts in too quickly but I've found it great for my boob shape. There's a tiny bit of wrinkling at the bottom of the cups but only if you scrutinize them - maybe there's a little more room there than I have at the bottom of my boobs. Very comfortable EXCEPT that the cups are a little too wide, which is irritating. The bird print is beautiful!

The top part of the cup just wrinkles a tiny bit for me. It is good enough to wear and does not show.
I got this on my regular 30:8 size, the cups are just like my other Cleo bras I've tried. The cups fit me just fine regarding width and depth https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
The band of this bra is pretty good, I feel that if I got this bra in a 28 it would be uncomfortably tight.
I really like how perky and round this bra makes my boobs look!
I cut the inner lining of this bra because I wanted to make it sheer! I find that it did not affect the fit of this bra.

I have finally found the size and styles that seem to work for me. When I first got this bra, it was very snug in the band (like the other Cleos I have). An extender helped the first few weeks, as did washing it.
However, even though it was almost right, it was very loose on the upper cup (but the projection and depth were spot on, if that makes sense). I read some comments on fit issues with the Meg/Lily, where it was recommended to push the wires down in the channels so that they are pushed away from the center and more ... towards the outside. Genius! Gapping is gone! My breasts are very close together as well as full and soft in the center, so I'm guessing that getting those wires out of the way lets them settle into place. I went a step further when tacking down the wires and tacked together the top of the gore. On the Meg, I actually folded it in two so that the cups are practically touching at the top. It stiffened the channel where there are no wires and let my breasts settle more into place. It looks a little odd if the bra is just laying there, but really can't be seen when it is being worn (since my breast are so close together). I do believe my breasts would be happiest if the wires overlapped, but this works. With the outside wires up higher, it also helps keep the tissue from sliding out into the arm pit and stay more forward.
I am very happy with the way this bra fits now. Almost like it was made for me. Plus, it is supportive and practically disappears under clothes.
An added bonus of Cleo is that the colors and styles are fun. I have spent most of my life with very limited options. I didn't realize, either, how much my husband hated nude bras until I got my first Cleo!!

I am even/average projection/firm, and on me the bird-print Meg fits perfectly from underwire up to the horizontal seam, and the top edge of the cup is also just right, and the wire width is fine. But then there's that odd little bubble in the fabric in between the horizontal seam and the top edge that makes me wonder exactly what breast shape this bra is designed for, with that extra space combined with the super-closed top of the cup. It's the oddest cut I've ever tried in an unlined bra.
It actually fits me a lot better than I expected, with just a little bit of the looseness ... in the top section for which the Meg is notorious. It's fine under thicker tops, although I wouldn't try it under anything tight/clingy.
I was never exactly sure what people meant by an "elf-shoe shape" when it came to bras until I put on the Meg, which combines a perky lower half and an almost flattened top when in silhouette. Now I get it! Again, it looks okay under thicker tops/layers.
For $20 nonreturnable, I'll keep it and wear it. The bird print is lovely; I only wish the bra was less unforgiving in the cut of that top panel.

As with the other 30F - Cleo » Zia Balconnet (6851) bras I've tried, this has a lot of forward projection. This bra is very rounded and so my FOB breasts leave a little wrinkling at the top. The straps were long enough this time and overall the bra seems very comfortable. However, I am uncomfortable with the forward projection and will most likely not keep this bra.

I found this bra on sale on Zulily, and loving the print, and not finding anything that said how it fit, I decided to give it a whirl. Mistake...
So, with that said- This bra is not meant for those even a little FoB. But, due to the to, which comes in close quite sharply, it is (likely- I cant say for sure) equally ill-suited for those vaguely more FoT. In my not-so-educated opinion, it requires a very round and even shape- almost as if designed for girls with breasts that are more like globes rather than the average lumps most of us have.
Also, I can't really imagine it ever working well for a short girl- I'm 5'1, and the underwires were right IN my armpits.
Quite depressing- I find it so beautiful, but there's no way it'll ever work for me.
