The lace trim on the cups stands straight up/out on me and shows under shirts in a really stupid way. The center gore digs in and the underwire pokes me under the arms, too. You ladies aren't kidding when you talk about shape mismatches. I'm narrow and projected, this bra spreads me out and pokes. Too bad, 'cause I love the print!
I love the pattern and style of this bra. Unfortunately, I think it might be too shallow at the bottom of the cups for my boobs, regardless of what size I try it in. This particular size was a bit too loose in the band, and I couldn't quite fill up the top of the cups, especially the section where the lace edge attaches to the top of the cup; the lace edge just flopped around and wasn't held in place by my boobs.
bought this forever ago and never wore it, finally time to review it and pass it on! Its not my favorite color scheme, but it was on sale and at the time i bought it, i fit into the sister cuts of it well, so i was after it more as a duplicate. it didnt fit me from the start, so its been in my bra drawer unloved. its not a super loud obnoxious plaid, more muted and with a faded effect in places.
the material of this bra seems very stiff, much like how my Juna was. im guessing that it would break in after a few washes, ...like my Rhianna. the band is firm at 33 inches, but would likely loosen with wear, so i would suggest getting your usual size and wearing an extender the first few times. the straps are half adjustable, with the back half more stretchy than the front. like most half cups, they are placed a bit wide for me, which is a huge peeve i cant usually get over. the gore seems slightly overlapped, although im not sure if that is a defect or on purpose. its a bit too high for me and presses painfully, another big no-no.
unlike most of the cleo bras, this one has no empty wire channel, the wire fills it all the way from gore to armpit. the wires are narrow at 5.5 inches, so that is a plus if you need narrow. im not sure if i do anymore, since some bras seem too narrow at 6 inches but these seem fine at 5.5. i imagine its more about the shape of the wires- these are a very U shape. the cups quad on be a little bit on my larger side, and the lace lays flat, which is a sign in the Juna family that the cups are too small.

I am not in love with this pattern, as especially for Cleo it seems a bit old and not as high quality as some of their other patterns. It does look better in person than in pictures, and the bra itself is very comfortable. I feel that with the little lace trim it would be good for full on top boobs, or even boobs with less deflated tissue than mine, but even though it doesn't look super flattering for my full on bottom boobs it is pretty good. The shape it gives is fairly rounded and works well under clothes. I got this bra when I was first trying to figure out my size, and thought it was too big because I hadn't learned how to stoop and scoop. That adjustment made a huge difference, but sadly I also hadn't learned the importance of handwashing and air drying yet either, so it is not so true to size any more.
This one is just a smidgen too big. I'm thinking most Panache styles must run small, so it isn't massively too big -- the lace at the top of the cup just sort of sticks up and there's a little bulge under the arms. As such, the shape isn't overly flattering but I've had worse.
I love this bra! Bought it on a whim as it's a sister size to my measured 30G. It's cute, and it seems to fit my FOB breasts fairly well. There are many minor fit issues- the lace does not stay flat, I feel like the band will stretch out quickly, and there is maybe a smidge not enough room in the bottom. Overall though, none of these things is an extreme mis fit so I'm inclined to call it good.
Cute as anything! Purple plaid with complementary purple lace, edgings, and striped bow.
I love this bra, but it's still not a right fit for my typical fit problems. I will keep it for now.
CUP DEPTH: Fine, but a tiny bit too front-projected for my boobs. CUP HEIGHT: Slightly too tall still. The lace part gets floppy and if I cut it off, the bra would appear to fit better. My boobs are just too short, as usual. STRAPS: Too wide, as usual. They seem to stay put for the most part, though. WIRES: Too narrow at rest, but if I sw/scoop, they seem fine. And they're sturdy. BAND: I can fasten it ...without acrobatics, but still a little tight on me. I'm wearing it with an extender that adds 1/2 to 1" to the length, depending on what part of my cycle I'm in. LOOKS: Adorable print. Nerd girlie.
OVERALL: I kinda love this bra. It's very cute and padded enough to deal with headlights. May take the lace off as it doesn't lie flat and shows under some tops. I don't think I'll alter it, though that would help the cup height and strap issues. I think it will fit without an extender soon (combo of me losing girth + band stretching from use). I'm hoping I won't have to size down to a 34FF any time soon.
I love how perky it makes my boobs look. Read more 123 more words
Fits me really well! The 28DD - Cleo » Juna (6461) was a little small and had a weird too-rounded shape to it so my breasts didn't completely fill the bottom portion of the cup - this doesn't have that issue. The cups seem like they're shaped exactly like I am, including the wire width. The straps are padded, comfortable, and thin, which helps the whole bra feel daintier. The band fits tts on the largest hook and doesn't dig in, so I know I'm going to get a lot of wear out of it. The color and pattern is pretty and fun, so when I ...wear this I kind of want to show it off to everybody (of course that isn't possible, but my husband is tired of me showing it to him!). There are some scratchy/pressure points that begin to irritate me after a days wear, including at the top of the gore. The lace at the top of the cups could also be lighter and softer, but it only begins to bug me after 8 hours of wear, so it's not a big deal. Read more 81 more words
