Short, projected, slightly narrow, close set, center full, even breasts....
Two tenths of an inch more cup width and a narrower gore, and I would keep this bra. This is a comfortable Cleo bra; a first for me. The fabric is lightweight, slightly stretchy, and soft. However, the cup width is .2" too narrow. Sigh. Strangely, when a cup is too narrow, not only do I feel discomfort under my arm, but also the pain radiates into the center of my breasts. This is not a sensation I can tolerate for more than a few minutes.
Please note: the band will stretch beyond 31". However, the wires distort at ... 31". I have a 28" underbust and sized up to the 32" to eliminate wire distortion. If you don't require maximum immediate projection, the distortion may not bother you. I may have a slight omega shape to my breasts and need as much immediate projection as I can find.
This band is too big because I receive very little support. But, when supported by a band more appropriate for a 28" underbust, my breasts become very close-set from top to bottom. To date, I've found one wired bra that can both support my breasts and has a narrow enough gore. And, the support from a too-large-band is less than I receive from some wireless options. Wireless is my preference until I can find a gore narrow enough.
Despite my affection for Cleo's choice of fabric and the excellent immediate and center (near the gore) projection, this lovely will journey back to the vendor.
