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.

The cups are very shallow, I can't fill the bottom of the bra. But it creates very nice cleavage and it's a perfect bra for deep-v-neckline. The band is quite snug, but not uncomfortable. After more then 2 years of very regular wear ( about 12-15 month I had just 2-3 fitting bras) and regular wash it still looks well, not like new, but quite nice. The cups still keep their shape.

The band of this bra ( exactly in nude colorway) is very snug. First time I had to wear it with extender. Now ( after 2 years of regular wear) it became completely comfortable, and sometimes I even need to use the second hooks. I can't fill the bottom of the bra as it's too shallow. But it creates very nice cleavage and it's a perfect bra for deep-v-neckline.

My shape, as best I can tell right now:
-full in center
Takeaway: Not a good fit for this shape. Issues were with center fullness and soft tissue.
I have lost a lot of weight, so when I put a bra on and I'm lifted up properly, I'm finding that what look like smaller boobs end up being a larger cup size than I would have thought.
Here is a description of the fit:
-the outsides were tall enough
-the band fit true to size (I had to put it on the second hook as the bra is defective and is missing an eye on the ... first hook, but I don't think this affected the fit too drastically)
-cups are too wide on the side, just a little
-the seam on the inner portion on the cup plus the wider cup separation posed a challenge. After immediately adjusting, I'd get a quadboob. Seconds later, my soft tissue settled into the cups, with the bra flattening my breasts out into a 'sports bra' kind of effect. No thanks! I'll stick to my old bras over this.
I've got a photo of the seam on the cup that was giving me trouble, so you can know what I'm talking about.
Quality: I mean... I got a defective one. It's missing an eye on the first hook. The third hook is actually sewn on unevenly. Defective hook aside, there are loose threads here and there. It's clearly sister sized down in the underwires/cups. The material is decent- feels good against the skin both inside and out. If it's good for your shape, then see if you can get it on sale as I did.
Comfort: To be fair to Cleo, even as a poor fit, it didn't poke or prod me, which is a big concern of mine as I have sensitive skin and little padding on my sternum. Straps are quite 'springy' but have decent strength to them. Keep in mind that they are 1/2inch wide. Sometimes straps that thin can feel like razor wire but I didn't notice that- much larger breasts may have a different opinion, of course.
Appearance: It's a decent basic. There's a tiny ribbon at the center gore with a little heart charm (if that's what you'd call it...) sewn onto it. Straps have tiny black polka dots on them. The bottom seam of the band and the top seam of the cups have a small scalloped lace edge. I'm putting defects aside when I rate appearance here.
Hopefully this review helps someone! I am a bit new to this.
So if you have a shape similar to mine, you might want to give this one a pass.

I enjoy the simple look of this bra. Previously Neve has fitted me well, but since weight loss there're fitting problems. It seems that this newer Neve has the same good quality as my first Neve had years ago. Although slightly longer band? To me the band isn't supportive enough so straps dig in a bit and feel a little awkward. All in all, this is light and really supportive and well made.

Certainly plung-y, but doesn't quite fit right.

The cups are not as wide or closed on top as the Jude. The Cleo Jude is really not made for women who are close-set, even or FOT, or have any center fullness. And I don't think it would be good for someone who is shallow because it's too closed off on the top of the cups.
I prefer the Cleo Neve even though it is too tall and wide.
The band is really snug which is good if you are 26"-27" underbust like I am. I can fit 2 fingers and a whole hand underneath the band.
I have ... the coral color which is pretty. Fully adjustable straps, which is very nice. I like the tiny gore with 2 little bows. Too bad I can't wear this bra. The tops of the cups are so wide and tall that the straps and the cups go into my armpits.
Which is uncomfortable and painful. It's too shallow for me also. It seems to be the opposite of the Freya Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234).
The Freya Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234) is almost too narrow and too projected and too FOT with no room in the bottom of the cups or the center of the cups.
The Cleo Neve has too little room in the bottom of the cups too. But that's the only thing I can think of that that the Cleo Neve and Freya Deco have in common. In all other aspects they seem the opposite to me.

I've already reviewed this bra twice, once in hot pink and another time for the coral color, both were 30Fs. The one I'm reviewing now is a coral one in 28FF and its exactly the same except for a tighter band. I wore it with an extender for a while and while I can wear it without the extender now (and probably could have before too, but with just a little less comfort) I think I'm going to keep the extender on it, a 30 band in this bra is tight enough to still be very snug and supportive.
