I bought this bra becauase I needed a really plunging bra to go with a low cut shirt. This bra basically does the job.
It's lightly padded and the material is quite soft, like a t-shirt.
The sizing feels really similar to the 30E, but the 30E gave me a double boob and this one didn't. It also gives a nice rounded shape.
Some things I didn't like:
- The colour. I'm not a huge fan of magenta, but I thought it was better than the grey.
- The top embroidery, just doesn't look elegant. I don't think black and magenta go together.
One thing that confused me was that of all the pictures of I've seen of this bra, the models have amazing cleavage and I didn't when I tried it on. I did get a double boob effect with the 30E, but I don't think that's the same as having a proper cleavage.
As usual, Cleo fits my shallow/wide-rooted shape well (I'm also a good fit in Cleo Koko Mode Moulded Plunge Bra (7806) and 34D - Cleo » Neve Plunge T-shirt Bra (7196) ). This is not a very padded bra, there's just enough padding to not be "nipply", and the fabric is very soft, like t-shirt material. VERY deep plunge but the fact that my boobs are very widely spaced means I'm not at risk of falling out of the bra (though also means I don't get cleavage), if you were closer-set or less shallow it might be a poor fit. Band is very stretchy, I could possibly have got away with a 30E. I'm not mad about the foofy embroidery at the top, but I'm going to keep it for any occasion where I wear a top that needs a really really deep plunge and it's not a fancy enough occasion to break out my Myla silk plunge bra.
Band: Fits well. Wires: Slightly low and wide, but padding in the cup seems to compensate. Gore: Tacks on the top but gaps slightly on the bottom? It's a plunge bra. Should I worry about this? It's not floating way off my sternum, anyway. Cup: I think I'm a little center full. This bra fits but if I stand straight with my shoulders back there's slight quad boobing. If I slouch there's a little gap. Straps: Comfortable. Comfort: It's not 100% perfect but it's pretty decent? Thinking about keeping this one. I'm not sure how much of that is gore relief, though.
I think this is a really pretty bra. The band is stretchy enough for me to fit a full hand underneath, but doesn't seem to ride up. The cups seem to be right size, but not the right shape. They cut into my breast tissue at the top. The shape underneath clothing is also a little funky. The wires also poke a little in the center. I'm still deciding whether this bra is worth keeping or not.
This band's so loose, it's ridiculous. Even on the tightest hook, it's very loose around my torso. It gives me quad-boobs of course and it feels as if I'm about to spill out at every second, though I believe that has more to do with my breast shape than size.
Does not fit. I am forever having to stuff myself back into it, Im always falling out of it. When I first put it on it doesnt offer any cleavage, my breasts are flattened and wide apart, as soon as I move even a little my chest starts to pop out and I get the dreaded quadraboob. It isnt even sexy breast spillage, just ill fitting bra spillage. I clearly got the wrong cup size in this bra
