My shape: narrow/average root width, tall roots, projected/very projected, immediate projection, even fullness.
This bra is only *just* deep enough in the cups for me, and I suspect that post-ovulation it will be too small. I think it is somewhat flatter than Cleo Blake and Kayla, especially the top section. It is narrow/average width. On me, it gives me a naturally rounded, low, slightly minimised shape - a 'my boobs but better' kinda shape. I'm interested to compare this one to the blue colourway, to see if the blue is any deeper. As it is, this is not my favourite bra (maybe it slightly squashes me?) but it is ... comfortable, and a good option for me to wear under shirts that otherwise strain at the chest or on smaller days. I bought it because I heard it is a deep-cupped bra, and I'd say that's true.
The cups are tall, but I wouldn't recommend this one for anyone with upper-fullness due to the flatness described above (the cups don't close particularly, but rather slowly lose depth above the apex, and are firm enough to squish). Do recommend to tall rooted people though, there's a good chance that it'll fit like it does on me. The band is firm in the lilac colourway.
The design of this bra is lovely - the lilac, neon pink and yellow are an unusual colour combination and the lace is pretty. It sorta makes me think of sports luxe. The pink especially is a wee bit bright for me, but I'm pale AF. On darker skinned people I imagine it would look A+. The purple is deeper/darker than Cleo's promotional pictures show, not at all pastel in tone.

I've got the two colours at home. The blue looks just a little bit lighter but I think that's because it's brighter than the purple. The yellow and red accents are bright, but not really neon like the purple version. I just uploaded a photo of the blue next to the purple to show the difference.
The blue one is so cute, I’m always hunting for it at a decent price in my size! The purple is so much more neon than stock pics suggest but I’ve co w to adore it too, and the slightly minimised look I get in it, it’s a bra I ofte wear when I’m feeling particularly cheerful lol!
I love the colours so much too ! All my favourite colours in these two bras. And I haven't found a better shape than this.
I just got the blue for £17 on Bravissimo. It's on sale right now and they have 30DD too. But it's only visible if you search by size. I couldn't find it any other way.
Ace, I've ordered it. Thanks for the tip! Does Skye run maybe half a cup big in your size? Any other styles you've tried that worked? I need ultra projected 30DDs (or 30DDs that most people find 'run large'), Cleo Skye and Kayla are my best fits, Hettie is decent, Blake cuts in a wee bit but I love it and it has all the depth I need.
I'd say it runs a bit big for its cup size, yes, but I'm extremely projected and close to the upper limit for my cup size so it fits very well. I've got a 34D and a 32DD and the 32DD is a little bit shallower, 34D is perfect.
This is my first Cleo so I haven't tried any other yet. I like the style of Kayla, Lily and Blake. Lily looks a little bit shallower and Kayla too FoT for me from reviews, so I don't know.
