    Used to fit

    This bra has upped my standard for quality and looks. The fabric is solid, and does not catch like some of the other bras I own. It holds it's shape quite well, without feeling overly stiff or scratchy. The straps have a nice plush lining, and the band extends just far enough below the cups to make it nice and stable. The bright blue berries print and red cloud mesh are cute and cheeky while being totally different from the standard pink frills and lace in most lingerie. The Melissa gives great forward projection and a fairly rounded profile, without creating an unnatural ... silhouette

    Previous reviews said that the band runs tiny on the Cleo Melissa, so I was worried that being a larger 28 band, I would find it stifling. I find it runs actually quite true to size, both in the band and cup. I was also concerned that the wires would be too wide, since all my other bras are Freya/Ewa Michalak, but I think the wires are actually the perfect width - some of my bras may actually be a smidge too narrow. It doesn't poke anywhere, and has a nice narrow centre gore.

    I do have a couple complaints and concerns, though. While the very solid mesh at the top is good for shaping, it does not have much room for variation in size. The bra fits perfectly right now, but if I go up or down even a tiny bit in size, I am concerned that it will not fit as well. Also, I don't know what it is about the shape, but I find there is a bit more pressure on the straps in this bra than in others. It might be partly due to only having two hooks in the back - I prefer three.
