    Didn't fit

    My stats for reference:

    5'3, 28G.5, FOT, tall and narrow roots, center full, projected, average to high set, short torso, 25" waist.

    This bra is absolutely adorable! The blue is super rich and would be flattering for many skin tones, unlike the cotton candy pink color. I don't think the green bow at the center gore is very complementary, but it's not terrible. The eyelash lace at the bottom of the front would definitely curl over if I sat down in it for too long. I wonder if I can iron lingerie?

    The band definitely runs super snug in this. It seems like it would fit someone directly ... between a 26 and 28 band. The cups fit like most cleos which are touted for being FOT-friendly (even though this bra is generally recommended as a FOB bra); they dig into my upper boobs, creating some serious quadboob. The cups are too wide and shallow for me, the wire is sitting about .5" below my lowest IMF, so my boobs are fighting their way to the top. I may not have had such severe quadding if I was shallower. The wires sit about 1" away from the end of my root. So overall, I have the polar opposite of orange-in-a-glass (is there a term for that?). The longline hits just above my waist, which is good because I have almost no space between my ribs and hips. I was so worried that this longline would dig in and hurt, I'm pleasantly surprised by this bra. The waist is definitely snug, so if you have a larger waist in proportion to your band size, this bra isn't for you.

      Such a beautiful color!
      I love the look of Piper and have been tempted to buy one, but yeah I've heard this is apparently a 'hard to fit' style?

      Too bad because it's gorgeous.

    • bubblegum I know, right? It's so beautiful, but it fits practically no one. I had to take it off after less than 15 minutes of wear from the straps rubbing and the wide gore. Thank god I didn't take the tags off for my "trial period". I'll probably have to list it :(

      From what I've read, this one is more FOB friendly/short root friendly compared to some other Cleos (Marcie, etc). I've seen it fit a number of people well, but it does have a specific fit. It's quite a pretty bra, so it's too bad it didn't work for you.

      I think the longline also makes it a bit tricky, even if the cups fit well. You have to have enough torso for the length, and your torso has to taper in the right way. I think other color ways have a shorter extension, which might accommodate people who are short or short waisted.

      That color is lovely and looks nice with your skin. Pity it was not a better match for your shape.

      Wilderness1 Yeah, I heard that too, but the cups fit almost identically to the 30FF cleo marcie I tried. I'm super bummed that it didn't fit though :(

    • AllyBra I agree wholeheartedly. I'm short with a short torso and it just wasn't for me. I think it would work for someone who is FOB and short rooted, with a long torso and an hourglass shape. So, basically a lingerie model, lol. Thanks for telling me about the other colors being shorter! I might look into them, but I love the blue so much.
