This bra is comfortable. That's the first thing I noticed. It lifts and centers the breasts a lot. I think the lift is what makes it feel comfortable. My breasts feel supported! I like the color and the thicker fabric feels sturdier than mesh.
I would say this is a good bra for women who like to keep their breasts within their frame, if that makes sense. Mine aren't that big or wide--or naturally centered, for that matter--so this extreme front-and-center position looks weird to me. Plus it gives me a really pointy profile because the cups are so deep.
I'm ... still undecided about keeping it because of this. On the one hand, it's pretty and comfy and supportive so I want to see if the pointy-ness will relax with wash and wear. On the other hand, I know that the depth has a lot to do with the shape and that can't be changed... unless I alter it. I'll be reading this obsessively for a while to see if I can muster the courage to try to alter it: http://brasihate.blogspot.com/2012/08/how-to-make-pointy-bra-round.html?m=1

Oh, pregnancy... My boobs are growing and this is my first new bra. I'm holding off on buying Polish bras because they'll take so long to get here that I may have changed sizes by then. *sigh* So it's the cheapest Cleos I can find on Amazon for now.
I normally have narrowish, projected, soft/squishy, FOB, low-set boobs. Preggo hormones are causing more upper fullness (whoa!) and about 1.5 cup size increase so far at 13 weeks.
The Minnie is a pretty good fit! The band is a little loose and rides up a tad, but I will grow into it. The gore is a smidge wide and sits on ... my tissue, but it's not that bad. The width is perfect on the left and about 0.5cm too narrow on the right. The shape is fine - rounded from the side but a little weird from the front, sort of low and wide (or at least more so than my beloved Comexim plunges). I get in-cup quadding AND empty lace at the top - my soft boobs don't have enough support to fill the top.
Even with all the little problems, it's still a really nice bra and it's wonderful to be in a correctly-sized bra for the first time in a month!
Update: now at 16 weeks, I'm bubbling out of the top. Hope this fits for a while longer!

I think I need a larger cup as mine runneth over. Ribbon straps are kind of rough at first. Straps cannot be easily adjusted while wearing. Not a fan of the cup seam - it runs across nipples. I also do not like the torpedo shape it gives me.

I really wanted this bra to work for me. I started out with the 34F and my full-on-bottom breasts just couldn't fill the top of the cups. My breasts fill the top of these cups, except the veeery top edge of the lace kind of flares out (see detail picture). Also, after wearing for about 10 minutes, the band was feeling a little on the tight side, but I assume that's something that would stretch over time. Like pretty much all bras, the straps didn't get as long as I need them for my long torso (hopefully that's something that would stretch over time) and the material where the cup meets the strap scratched my armpits (but not as bad as w/ the 34F, or with the other Cleo bras I've tried on this week). Again, hopefully something that would soften up over time.
