    I loved the prints that came into fashion this spring/summer. Some of my favorites were the bird prints, and of these my number one print was the swallows. I know that my dove-print dress and my swallow-print shirt are going to seem dated by the time next spring rolls around, so the idea of a swallows-print garment that I could go on wearing without looking off-trend was appealing.

    This is my first Cleo (first Panache of any kind, actually), and I knew from reviews that the fit was going to be tricky. All in all I'm pleased with it, but I have some notes.

    Size wise, I suspect I could ... probably have gone down a cup. I've got some slight wrinkling at both the bottom and the top. However, the top of the bra is a bit weirdly constructed, and it's possible a smaller cup would have squished the tops of my breasts into a deformed shape. As it is, the side silhouette I get is the strangest of any of my bras- they slope up very nicely from the bottom, but then flatten out at the top, at a 90 degree angle to my chest bone. Fortunately this isn't noticeable at all under clothes, not even tight fitting clothes- not that I'd wear Meg with anything tight, because the seams at the top show through. The shape from the front, on the other hand, is great.

    The bra isn't very supportive, my breasts bounce a bit more than I'd like (possibly a smaller cup would have partially alleviated this?). But the lift I get is incredible: my breasts have never felt so high! If the top angled/sloped up rather than flattening out like a table they might even be too high. Nevertheless it's a great feeling.

    Others have mentioned the marvelous attention to details on the Meg, and I must concur. My favourite detail is the red metal clasps on the straps, to match the red in the bird print.

    Best of all, this bra is immensely comfortable- at the end of a long day I don't want to take it off.

    Update- I've discovered this is my perfect PMS bra. For one week a month I swell up to fill Meg's cups perfectly.

    I'm normally FOB/even, but during that week before my period, my other balconettes are too snug. I bought Meg with hopes that this'll be roomy enough to deal with the swelling and counteract the digging I normally get I my upper cup elastic/band.

    Meg fits marvelously everywhere but the top of the cup as anticipated, and overall, I fill it well with room to swell up. I tried on several shirts and the wrinkling wasn't noticeable in any. I think it fits well enough, despite what Baratabase says, especially for what I intended it for

    The shape is perfect, the lift is good, and the material feels a little rough/stiff, but not so much that I can't wear it.

    This bra is the first that fit correctly :) I was worried that with my bottom heavy breasts it wouldn't work but I was wrong! I even fill out the top.

    Fits

    By far my favorite everyday bra. I love the fit, nice and high and everything pointed forward, but also very comfortable. The fabric could be a little more smooth but it isn't a big deal. The pattern and colors are a nice blend of youthful and classic, and I love that the underwires end about a half inch before the top of the wing, so they can barely be felt. Fits pretty true to size and the inward laying lace makes this great for full on bottom breasts. I would by three more if I could afford to so I would never have to live without this bra.

    Used to fit

    I thought this was a little tight and scratchy when I first got it, but it's a bit more comfortable now. The fabric is a bit stiffer than I'm used to. The shape is very up front and center, as I like it, but a bit higher than I'm used to since I don't usually wear a balconette. It keeps the cups within my narrow ribcage though, and that makes me look slimmer, which is always good. :) The shape has kind of grown on me over time, and the fabric pattern is super cute.

    I really like this bra, but I think I need to size down one cup size. The band is firm and is very true to size...mine measured exactly 32 inches when stretched. The bird print is precious and I love the contrast of the navy fabric with the red details. The seams are strategically placed and I don't really have an issue with nipple show through. The straps are a bit wide set for me but that may also be because the cup is too big for me. The bird charm on the center gore is a nice touch. This bra gives a nice uplifted shape. I have some empty space at the bottom of the cups and some wrinkling at the top, even on my larger breast so I think I will size down to a 32F.
