Love the Bird Print. Listed as 'didn't fit' because the wires are too wide, but not uncomfortably so. I happily wear this bra and consider it a fit. Should be a 32GG now, but bought this when I was heavier. Just have to hook it in the middle now. Will adjust band smaller when it stretches out.

This is an oddly shaped bra. The wires are too wide (it's a panache, so obviously) but not by much. Then the bottom/side panels lay very stiff and flat, pushing my breast tissue inward and giving it a shape almost as though its being squeezed by a giant invisible Lego hand. I think in clothes it will be less obvious. The fabric itself is the adorable navy birds & cherry blossom print. I consider myself an FF and I'm glad I got a little bigger. There's no place for over spilled cleavage on this bra to go.

NOTE: I've already reviewed this bra in 36FF (pink coral print), so the below review is mostly copy-and-pasted from there, since there aren't many differences besides the sizing. The navy blue bird print for this particular one is absolutely gorgeous, though.
This bra has turned out to be the bra I currently look forward to wearing the most, despite owning the Cleo Lily in the same sizes -- which is typically more true to size and easier to fit. It's just very comfortable and seems to suit my even breast shape very well, even though the wires (cup width) are technically not narrow enough for them.
-I own both ... this bra and the Cleo Lily (sister cut) in the same sizes -- both 34G and 36FF. It's really clear that the Meg's cups are cut slightly deeper, almost (but not quite) enough to say it runs 1 cup size larger. I seem to be between cup sizes (34G/GG or 36FF/G), so the Meg's larger cut actually worked in my favor.
-The wires (cup width) are narrow, but not as narrow as my Lily bras in the same size. It's definitely noticeable as soon as I put it on but it hasn't bothered me, because the wires don't generally poke me (despite my extra side "padding"), and are pretty comfortable. I had to bend the wires of my 34G Lily to conform to my ribcage better, but didn't need to do so with the Meg of the same size.
-Just like the Cleo Lily and most unpadded Cleo bras, the band runs tight. My break-the-tape underbust measurement is 33" and snug is about 35", but this 34 band was slightly too tight for me. I currently wear it with an extender to make sure I am comfortable throughout the day and don't distort the underwires.
-Also like the Lily: I may technically need even more immediate projection than this bra provides, since it does slide down in the front every once in awhile -- but only by about half an inch to an inch at most. All in all, its immediate projection is good.
-I have this bra in 36FF as well (although in pink, not blue), and the main differences I noticed were the straps were slightly wider and the wings slightly taller. So going up one band size does affect both.

I'm not quite sure what it is about this bra that really doesn't work for me. It's adorable , but it's really uncomfortable. The wires are too short and wide. This bra also runs large. I wear a 34GG in every other brand and the 34G technically fits the top of my boob, no overspill. The bra does have nice projection.

I love this bra. This is my third Cleo bra, and I love all of them. For me this bra fits pretty true to size. This bra gives me a nice rounded shape, and I'm able to fill out the cups nicely. I'm sort of full all over, but maybe slightly fuller on top. The gore tacks, and the straps are in a good position. The material is a little stiff, but I think a couple of washes will do the trick.

Very cute bird print design, which is what drew me to this bra. Navy with red trim, including bra strap hardware, and white and gray bird silhouettes. Center has red bow with tiny bird silhouette charm.
Made of semi-sheer mesh, which is a little stiff, and the trim on the band is a little scratchy. These issues may go away after washing the bra.
The band fit snugly but not tightly on the loosest hook and seemed tighter than the same bra in 34GG (one cup size larger).
The cups cut into my armpits in the front a little; I needed to readjust a few times (wore for ... 20-30 minutes).
Gave an "uplifted" look different from the usual roundness of molded cup bras; it looked like my breasts were pointing up somewhat.
Apex seemed a little high and puckered, even though the top of the cup cut across my left breast, creating a "dent" that was visible with and without a shirt on over the bra. The right side had the same issue at the apex but the cup did not cut into my breast.
