    Fits

    This seems to have a smaller band than others I've purchased in the same size. If I were to buy it again I would have gone up a band size. Boning along the wings prevents this long line from rolling up like others do.

    ABOUT THIS BRA:
    This is an unpadded, mini-longline with wired half-cups.

    Purchasing:
    * $41.17 on Amazon with free Prime shipping & returns (not Amazon Wardrobe)
    * not available in neutral colors (only hot pink, acid coral, and bright blue)

    Band:
    * One layer of stretch mesh outside boning (between boning and clasps).
    * Band between cup/wire and wing boning constructed of non-stretch lace lined with non-stretch mesh.
    * Elastic at top of band.
    * Wing support: boning.
    * Full band - band straight under wires (a short longline, will not provide waist shaping)
    * Back close with 3 columns of hooks.
    * Extra seaming (not boning) beneath each apex to prevent rolling/bunching. (spoiler: fails).

    Straps:
    * smooth elastic without outer lacy ... ridges
    * soft (don't stand up on their own)
    * full adjust
    * straight back (not leotard)

    Cups:
    * 3-seam (4-piece) half-cup (top edge is diagonal, not horizontal, so I can't call this a balconette)
    * unpadded, stiff underwire
    * Upper panel is non-stretch mesh with dot embroidery.
    * Lower panels are non-stretch lace.
    * The entire cup is lined with a non-stretch mesh.
    * Soft cups (no padding or molding).


    ABOUT ME: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
    * average projection
    * average-set (one finger width of space between breasts)
    * very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
    * even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
    * short root height, average vertical placement
    * mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
    * conical shape (but will squish to round)
    * full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
    * petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
    * front (anterior) rib flares


    FIT

    Band:
    * length: difficult to fasten (tight) but once on is comfy and stays in place with wear
    * wings: too short, boobs escape
    * After bending over, the band scrunches up in front because there is no boning there.
    * Unable to smooth my rib flares.

    Gore: Comfortable, tacks, good spacing, height fine.

    Straps:
    * too far apart, slip
    * adjust short enough

    Cups:
    * Wires wide enough (SO RARE).
    * Smooth line at top of cup on larger breast. (Tiny wrinkles on smaller breast -- acceptable.)
    * Bottom of cup filled (enough immediate projection at the wire).
    * Apex fits (not too deep, too shallow, nor off-center).
    * Gives a wide, oval, breasts-in-the-armpits shape.
    * Upper, outer edge of cup cuts into tail of Spence.
    * Lace is scratchy.


    Assessment & Plan
    * Band & cups fit. Straps too wide and cups cut into tail of Spence. Unattractive shaping. Front of mini-longline band scrunches up due to lack of boning.
    * Longlines without boning don't stay put. Don't bother with them.
    * Stop trying half-cup styles -- the wide-set straps slip and rub on my tail of Spence.

    Fit

    About me: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
    * average projection
    * wide-set (3 fingers width of space between breasts)
    * very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
    * even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
    * short root height, average vertical placement
    * mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)

    * petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
    * front (anterior) rib flares

    Band:
    * length: fits
    * wings: barely high enough
    * no axillary skin spillage
    * Smooths my rib flares nicely.

    Gore: Comfortable, tacks, good spacing, height fine.

    Cups:
    * Cups far too big. Fabric only covers breasts (with gapping) and provides no shaping.
    * Wires wide enough (SO RARE).
    * Bottom of cup filled (enough immediate projection at the wire).
    * Upper, outer edge of cup cuts into tail of Spence.

    Straps:
    * not too far apart
    * adjust short enough

    Comfort & Fit Summary
    * I tried this bra because it looked pretty in pictures. The mini-longline band is very flattering (accents my narrow ribcage).
    * I chose this size based off a measurements search (cup depth & wire width) here on bratabase. The cups were wide enough, but far too big, so this style may be too projected for me.
    * Think about trying a 32E or 32F. According to measurements table, as cup size drops in this range, cup depth decreases but cup width stays the same.

    Didn't fit

    This was my first attempt at a longline bra. I got it in acid coral which is basically neon orange. I liked the material, but the fit wasn't right for me. The band is on the tight side of snug. I have mixed feelings about the longline aspect - it isn't bad, but the side boning digs into my ribs. The gore is good for me, but the cups are a little small and give me some quad-boob. I think the cups are too deep and narrow for me. The underwire digs into my armpit - I'm not sure if that is because of the height or the width.

    30E

    Fits

    This bra is comfortable and gives a nice rounded shape. I have some projection at the bottom and this bra works well for that. I have tall, shallow roots and the top does not cut in. The negative: I am not sure why but this bra causes me major side and side/back fat/spillage. When I go to put the bra on, before I fasten the hooks, the cup wires feel either too narrow or too u shape for my shape. Even though the width cup measurements seem like they should be fine for me. For now I am saying it fits but not really sure.

    Hasn't set fit

    I really have wanted a bralette and try this bra. I found it inexpensively so I took out the wires. The cup isn’t as perky now but it’s a lot more comfortable for me. I don’t fall out of the center (or get stabbed by the gore anymore). I am quite center heavy with a supportive bra and projected and narrow. I might end up taking out the boning as well but haven’t decided yet. It’s a bright blue. Quite a statement! My torso also might just be too short for long lines ;(

    I love this bra, it's cute and the longline style it super comfy. The only problem is that both the underwire and the extra boning on the side comes up too high and poke me in the arm pits. Everything other than that is perfect. Iv'e tried five or six Cleo bras and this is the first one that the cup fits my amount of breast tissue perfectly. I am seriously considering keeping it and trimming the wires.

    Didn't fit

    Another day, another mail order bra fail. But I expected it, since I ordered it based on misjudging the fit of Panache Ava. First off, the cups are obviously just too big. But even if I sized down in the cup, I suspect I'd still contend with what I think is lack of immediate projection. I'm very newly learning about this by looking at others' pictures here, realizing all underwires sit way down below my breasts, and never experiencing lift in unlined bras (and I only wear unlined.) Although in the side pic the wire seems to be at the edge of my breast, and not in my ... armpit, I think it is too wide. I believe that the sliding-down-the-ribcage thing has been masking too-wide wires/too-deep cups. (Also, the other wire is definitely further out into my armpit.) I am a total newbie to diagnosing wires, and can't tell whether these are too high, but I think so, ever since someone introduced me to "short roots" yesterday. Same as how I describe the wire width -- wire height doesn't look incredibly problematic (except from the side) because it's just sitting too low. I can say the bra wire is uncomfortable pretty much all over. Although I know I'd come closer in 28E or 30DD, I'm going to post this for a fit check because its problems are the same as 70%of bras I've tried. I used to think of this as categorically as "all bras make my breasts wide" but I'm now I'm beginning to see that cup width, wire height, and strap placement, and other factors are at play. Many wired and seamed bras give me virtually no shaping benefit over my braless/braletted breasts, yet without the comfort and natural feel of those options. Lose-lose.

    30E

    Didn't fit

    The bra fits enough for me to use it and I adore the electric blue with lime green accents. The cups aren't completely full though, making it not fit me exactly as I would like it to. It's also a little itchy with the lace and the wire being so prominent, especially with a perfectly snug band. I now know how I fit in a Cleo longline and will hopefully fit perfectly in a 30DD.
