Cute bra with nice shape, but too large; I don't quite fill the top of the cup. The lace on top sticks up exaggerating the effect--maybe someone who filled out the cups better would have it laying flat, but then maybe not. Probably not great under tight-fitting shirts because of the lace.
This bra gives you cleavage galore. Breasts are very much shoved together at the front and projected from the sides outward and upward. It has kept its shape fairly well with moderate wearings. It shows through light-colored shirts quite easily, and the top line shows through thin shirts very easily as well. It is fairly comfortable, though the wires press against my ribs at the side, and I wish the gore was just a tiny bit higher. It makes my somewhat aging boobs look pretty good.
This bra is clearly the wrong size for me! However, ith an extender it fits me comfortable enough to wear (although, sometimes the underwire gets up in my armpits). The cups are soft w no padding, which I like. It is very pretty for a "hanging out at home" bra.
I really like the shape this bra gives, rounded and supported without being too lifted. The material is very comfortable, and the gore is narrow enough not to bother my close set breasts. A couple gripes with this bra; the underwires are a bit high under the arm (though this is a usual problem for me), the straps aren't fully adjustable, and like most Cleo bras, there are only two hooks, even at larger cup sizes. Also, a lot of people have noted that they cannot fill out the lace at the top, and I have this problem as well. However, as this lace ...is not structurally part of the bra, and is more an accent, I don't consider this to be a fit issue; rather, the designers should have tightened the lace at the top a bit. I think anyone who could fill out the lace would be bulging over the padded portion of the cup. Even though the gaping lace doesn't show under a shirt, it bothered me enough that I just tacked it down near the straps, and you can't tell that there has been any change made.
Love this bra- fits like a dream. I find similarly shaped bras by freya can gape across the top, but this is perfect and gives a lovely shape. Very supportive and doesn't dig in at all. Could be considered slightly on the smaller side of a 28E.
UPDATED- slightly bigger boobs now...doesn't fit so well unsurprisingly...cuts into breast a little. Can still wear it at certain times of the month, but I'd need a cup size up now.
