    Used to fit

    This is my second review of a Cleo Melissa. I also own a Cleo Melissa in 28GG, which fit well when I purchased it, but I outgrew quickly. While Cleo is Panache's junior/cheap line, the construction and design of the Cleo Melissa are top-notch - great shape, fantastic reinforced seaming, sturdy materials, true-to-size and an absolutely adorable pattern.

    With many other bras, the jump from 28GG to 28H is often the tipping point into shitty pattern grading (wires mysteriously become an inch wider, cups run up way too high and shapes become all wonky). I clung onto my too-small Melissa for a couple months fearing that ... the 28H would be an awful fit.

    I needn't have worried - if anything, the pattern grading is BETTER in the 28H. The wires and cups run up just high enough to contain all of my breast tissue without engulfing my torso or poking anywhere, the wires are a great width (narrower than Freya in this size), the gore is nice and narrow and tacks without digging in. It manages to be cute and delicate while providing great support to a bigger bust.

    My only complaint is that, like ALL the Cleo bras, this only has two columns of hooks in the back, even in bigger sizes. The Melissa has a thick underband in front, I don't understand why that isn't extended to the back (especially in bigger sizes).

    Didn't fit

    This is currently my favourite bra! It's so pretty and very comfortable! The band is a tad too big for me, probably because I really need a 26 or 24 band. The center gore is still too high for my close set breasts but it's narrower than other bras I've tried and not really a problem. It gives me a wonderful rounded shape and lifts nicely. One problem I did have at first was that the straps were placed way too far apart, making the top of the cups gape. But I found an alteration on the internet to move the straps closer, which worked well! It also made the armholes a bit bigger and most of the gaping is gone now, the lace is still fluttery at times (probably because of my fob shape) but I can live with that.
