The first thing I love about this bra are the colours and the print. I don't like purple generally, but it works well with the rest of the colours, especially the orange. As typical of Cleo bras, it gives good lift and a nice rounded shape. Not really a fan of the band material, it feels like spandex. I prefer the mesh material, but that's a minor issue.
I generally wear a 30F in cleos, but according the the reviews here, it fits big. I can confirm that it does as it fits similarly size wise compared to the Lizzie I have in 30F. The band does feel slightly ...tight, but will loosen up with wear. The cups are very open on top, which is great for full on top breasts. I have no issues with the top edge cutting in. The gore pokes a lot near the end of the day, so I will probably need to bend them outwards for comfort. The straps are pretty stretchy but comfortable.
Overall, I really like this bra. I feel lucky that I was able to get it! Read more 76 more words
I took a risk getting a 30E. I'm usually 30F with Cleo. I was hoping with this open on top and at the cusp of the depth I usually require I'd be alright but I think it's really a little too small for me. I seem to be able to get away with 9.1" with narrow wires around 4.9-5.2" but not 9" I guess :/ This is a fun print, reminds me of the 70s in a good way. I wish it would have fit. Cut seems similar to the Ellis and Bella to me.
This bra does not fit me well. I think this is meant for shorter roots because I feel like the wings and cups aren't tall enough. This makes for a very unflattering fit. I also feel like I might need a bigger cup size.
The first time I saw this print months ago, I wasn't really feeling it. It slowly grew on me until the day it arrived at my door, and then when I opened it I was in love. I'm not a fan of orange/yellow, but this bra is just so pretty.
Unfortunately, i find it much more open on top than my Cleo Marcie, both in turquoise 30E and pink 30F. I feel the fit problems I get with it were very similar to fit problems I had with the Melissa in 30F - not enough projection, too open on top.
I wore it around for a bit despite ...the gaping lace, and oh man, I've never felt so round and lifted. None of my other Cleo bras make me feel this way. I'm going to try to make this bra work for this reason.
My favorite part of this bra is the fabric. No more mesh! The printed fabric is so soft and smooth - I love it after mostly wearing my Lucy and Marcie. I want to find a fitting Cleo bra in this fabric now! Read more 78 more words
I think this 30E fits exactly the same than my pink Marcie 30F. Pink Marcie is said to be all over smaller than other colour variations, so I guess the fit is identical to non-pink Marcies. ETA. The fit is not the same than in Marcie! There seems to be something going on at the bottom of cups , they might be more projected than Marcie. I´m not exactly sure what it´s about, but Marcie definitely fits me better.
The band is nice and snug, I usually need 28 but this 30 is perfect! It is 1 cm longer than the band of my pink (and little worn) Marcie, ...so not much difference.
The cups are as open on top as in Marcie, exactly the same. Which is barely enough for me, but I have long root. The shape is rounded and pushed to the center. I would prefer more lift, but it´s okay.
Straps adjust all the way like in Marcie. Strap material feels a bit more softer in Pixie.
ETA. Damn it, I have realised that the wires are too narrow for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> They press onto breast tissue on the sides. They should be about 1 cm wider. Read more 97 more words
