    This band runs snug! I wonder if I got a mislabeled bra, as most Cleo's are not this tight. Anyway, I think Cleo's finally got itself a more shallow-friendly plunge bra. The shape it gave me reminded me of the Freya Deco (4234) (cleavage!). The coral is a lovely shade, and there's a sweet double bow at the center gore.

    This bra looks beautiful under shirts. I like that the straps are thin, so I can wear it under a tank top without looking like I am wearing a "saddle" bra. I like it more than most molded bras because it doesn't add a lot of bulkiness. Its very comfortable as well. I have read some reviews saying they felt like they would fall out the middle but I do NOT have that issue. Again, beautiful shape without having to wear additional layers to hide any bumps or lines.

      This looks fantastic! It is encouraging to read your tissue doesn't fall to the center. How do the wires feel?

    • This bra looks great on you! It's giving you the kind of cleavage the Freya Deco is supposed to provide. I'm glad for you you found a more comfortable alternative to the Deco. Thanks for your reviews.

    • This does look gorgeous on you!

    What a strangely shaped little bra. The band is definitely tight for a 30 - for once it's a 30 band I ordered based on reviews saying it runs tight and I don't regret it - it most definitely runs very tight. I personally like having tight bands, and I do feel this is material that will stretch fairly easily. The other Cleos I've tried - Juna and Jude - were not this tight in the band, I needed 28 bands in those.

    PROS: Coral color is pretty and the little bow detail on the gore is cute. Material is very soft, cups are ... molded but not overly stiff. Straps are fully adjustable.

    CONS: The shape... is so weird... something about the top of the cups doesn't agree with me. It gaps on both sides but it's like they are too tall rather than too big. I feel like this bra is asking for fullness on top that I just don't have, and I'd do better with shorter cups. I could not have gone down a cup size though. If I really scoop & swoop I fill out the top briefly, but my boobs settle back down into the cups and the gapping returns. Also, there's a small bit of empty space down the inside edges of the cups, where it's like the bra material floats away from my breast. I believe I've stumbled upon a bra that has cups set too close together for my boobs. The wires are hella wide, and it's insanely shallow. Like, I had an inch of wrinkling in the bottoms of these cups.

    I'd highly recommend this as THE t-shirt bra to try for those with wide roots, a shallow shape, even or FOT, and close set boobs. I can see why it's called the anti-Deco.

    • I have splayed-set shallow breasts and am bottom-heavy...but I don't get empty space in the bra. Of course, the bra could run differently in a 36 band than a 30?
      (I did not know Neve and Deco were archenemies! I wear them both.)

    • I can believe the Cleo Neve's cups are too tall for you. I find Cleo's cups in general to be higher coverage than I want. This has been my experience with most UK brands.

    • faustineli hey, if they work for you they work! They're just totally different shapes. To me the Deco is narrow & deep and the Neve is wide & shallow.

      learningaboutbras it's so weird... I have about 1/2" of bra cup, from the top where the straps are attached all the way down the inside edge of the cup to the gore, that is not touching my skin. On either side. I'm gonna have to post a picture or something. I definitely fill out the bottom, sides, and middle of the cups, it's just the inside edge. But then I look on the outside edges and I don't think I'd want them any shorter or narrower - they don't rub my armpits like my Charlotte-from-armpit-hell did. This is not something my Jude does, and don't think my Juna does it but my Juna is a complete shape mismatch so there's that.

      lcl0706 I keep hearing that Deco is narrow and deep, and I feel like it is a bit narrow. As for depth, I don't get the ZOMG cleavage some do, but I fill the cups fine- unlike most of Freya's other bras. Headscratcher.
      I recommend trying Neve on for almost anyone who's a 28 band even if it's a shoot-the-moon scenario because goshdarnit those bands are *tight*.

    • Yes, it is tight. My UB is 27.5" and I probably could have done a 28G, maybe even a 28FF, but I would have needed an extender for the first couple of wears. As it is, this 30 band stretches to 28.5" and I've got it comfortably hooked on the loosest hook and have worn it all day. The band should last me a while. I can see how a 28 band would be great for someone who has troubles with 28 bands being too loose.

    32F

    Hasn't set fit

    I think the Neve bands run tight. I managed to fit into a 30G, but the cup was a bit big and the band was so snug it seemed ridiculous (although I could fit it on me). I opted for the 32F and am happy with my choice. This bra gives GREAT cleavage and a smooth appearance under thin tees. I would agree with another review that says the cleavage given is similar to the Freya Deco's, but because the fabric is a touch thinner, it doesn't stick away from the chest.

    I own the Peach Neve and I love the color choice. The little bow and charm are a nice touch! It's an adorable and functional bra.

  5. I'm cautiously going to proclaim this size a success! It gives me a much better look under clothes than the size 30D did -- so it appears that my theory about the cup depth was correct (see my review here: 30D - Cleo ยป Neve Plunge T-shirt Bra (7196) ). I definitely feel, based on personal experience, that this is the bra for ladies who cannot wear the Freya Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234) due to shape incompatibility.

    I really like the extra coverage of this at the top too. After having kids it just feels better to keep everything held up and in, haha... even when you have a smaller chest like I do! Definitely recommend this bra but you have to be extra careful about the sizing. Remember to check the Bratabase measurements!!

    28E

    Didn't fit

    Pros:
    Plush and comfortable material
    Cups conform to the tops of my breasts well. No gaping, unlike the Deco or many other popular plunges

    Neutral:
    The band of the coral version is VERY firm; I almost couldn't wear it at first. Thankfully, it also stretched within the first week of wear. It's still a pretty firm 28. The black version is not quite as firm, though! The cups are wide and shallow, so you might consider going up a cup size.

    Cons:
    The straps are typical Cleo, too wide-set and can irritate my armpits
    The cups are a little too tall

    With good scooping & scooping, I can get some pretty impressive cleavage with this bra. My bigger left side quads a little, but a 28F would probably be too tall for my frame and in this case I'd rather have the cleavage :)

    FINALLY a bra that actually fits me and doesn't give me a quad boob! I really love this bra, particularly because it brings my girls together and creates some cleavage as I have wide set boobs that never meet! It stays in place the whole day and doesn't move about! However, I still have the feeling of 'Oh, I'm wearing a bra!'. This is because the band is very very short and I'm only able to wear it on the last hook (I know its supposed to be like that but it's pretty uncomfortable). Due to the tight band, my back fat sticks out when I wear this bra sadly so I don't actually reach for it very often. The top of the bra shows through my t-shirts which is a boo because the whole world can see my bra no matter how much breast tissue I stuff into the cups to reduce the outline of the bra... Otherwise, it's great a GREAT bra and I recommend this to ladies with larger girls like me!

      A bra band should only be as tight as needed (to prevent it from riding up or otherwise moving about), NOT as tight as possible. Also, unlike bra bands, ribcages do not come in fixed 5cm/2" increments. Not only that, but also the amount of "squish", as well as, for example, how much your ribcage expands with breathing, and how projected/heavy your breasts are (relatively) determine how tight you can COMFORTABLY wear your bras. Finally, if a bra has even slightly flexible wires, wearing it one set of hooks looser or tighter can make a lot of difference in terms of cup shape. Anyway, whatever your bra band feels like, it should not be uncomfortably tight. If it does, try an extender. It may be just a matter of breaking in, in which case you can move to the last set of hooks later on, or maybe this band really just is a tiny bit too tight for comfort :)

      I will echo the band should be snug but not too uncomfortably tight. Imagine trying to wear that for 8-10 hours? It will be bothersome in no time. Go up in the band and the cups will fit better too. They distort on too tight bands.

      I'm glad you like the Cleo Neve! It's a great bra.

    • MilkAndHoney It may be a matter of breaking in - I only got the bra a couple of months ago so I'll probably have to wear it more! Thanks so much for the helpful advice! :)

      roxannelovesbras Thats really true - it's my first time buying Cleo by Panache bras so I went with my normal sizing... I'll probably get an extender or go up a band size for this particular brand! Thanks so much for the advice! ^_^

    Didn't fit

    Almost a perfect fit! My breasts have moderate projection, more or less even fullness, and slightly wide roots. If I completely scoop and swoop, I have a slight quad-boob, but my tissue is soft so I can adjust to fix the problem. I think a 30FF would be a better fit, but I'm still quite happy with this bra. I also think the projection is a little shallow for me, but in a t-shirt bra I'm willing to compromise.

  9. Neve is not a Cleo Jude (5846). Let's start with that.
    I have no way to remember exactly why Jude didn't fit me to have a comparison to be made, but it made me a guadboob and there was too much empty in the bottom even that I am a bottom-heavy. Neve comes somewhere in the middle of that and a more basic t-shirt bra.

    Cups were wide yet really comfortable for my shallowness. Cups weren't too high in the armpit, and the strap position is quite wide (which is what I like, but many might not). Smooth, soft and light.
    The band could be even more narrow, but this is already nice and tight.
    Simple and effective. Oh, an the coral just got me.

    This bra is brilliant for my shallow, wide rooted breasts and is one of only a few bras that can give me a decent cleavage and has a low enough gore to go under any low cut tops/dresses. It's sits really well and encloses me completely and I feel supported and does give a good rounded smooth shape under clothes but it is still a shallow shape. Therefore, I usually wear it with fairly low plunging necklines but would sometimes rather wear my Bravissimo Satine with a medium shallow plunge or my Cleo Maddie for a low but rounded/square neckline for a little more of a projected shape as I am already pretty shallow, but is till looks good under a tight fitting top of any neckline.
