My shape is low set, narrow and short rooted, and soft.
This is my second Cleo Spencer in 30F. I also have the navy one. This bra is the best bra I've ever tried for lifting and centering tissue. It works better for me than Ewa Michalak's chps ever did, probably because the top edge of the cup curves back in towards the breast. It's like I have a push up on, but it's only regular padding. Vava voom! This bra is excellent for someone like me that needs immediate projection and a short cup for short roots. I think the lining along the upper cup edge would cut ...in too much if you have tall roots. I do get some bubbling on my larger side, but it's not really obvious under clothes, and it fits my smaller side great. I'd rather have a little bubbling on my larger side rather than gaping on my smaller side, so this is how most of my most-worn bras fit. It is a short long line with 3 x 3 sets of hooks. The band is a true 30" band and is a bit too stretchy for me, but I can wear it on a tighter hook. I wouldn't want a long line to be shorter anyways, as it wouldn't be comfortable on my rib cage (which flares a bit). The front bottom of the band does tend to flip up when I bend over or slouch, but it's not uncomfortable when it does. The cups have a mermaid pattern, which is cute in a grown up kind of way. The material is satiny too, so no boob tents from sticky material. The straps are wider than average and have just enough tension/support, and they are fully adjustable.
(Sorry for the blurry pictures. I have a thumb injury so it was hard to take these).
Overall this bra is excellent quality and construction for my shape. It's very very comfortable, and I think it has an excellent appearance. Read more 225 more words
My shape is low set, slightly pendulous, soft and narrow rooted.
I got this bra because of MiskiDwie s review. She's a similar size and she raved about the shape... and oh wow...the shape of this bra! Uplifting, rounding, centering. There is an elastic band edging on the cup that does cut into my boobs and the bra MAY be slightly too small, but because I have soft breasts, I have a feeling that this will not be an issue as the day wears on and my boobs settle in the cup. So far I've just tried this bra on. I have short roots, and this ...bra pushes everything up to makes it look like I actually have upper fullness. If you did have upper fullness or taller roots, this bra may cut in a bit. The cup width is slightly wider than I need, but I don't think it affects the fit very much, or at least I don't notice.
This bra has a shimmering dark navy mermaid pattern on the cups and gore area and elastic around the rest of the band. So unique! There are 3 x 3 set of hooks (I'd prefer 5, but I think they did this in an attempt to stop rolling). I find that this bra does accentuate my back rolls a bit more than I like...but maybe that's just because I gained 5 pounds in the last couple months. (Motivation to skip the snacks at night...). The straps have gold hardware, are a touch wider than your standard straps, and they adjust long enough for my tall frame. There is a mauve coloured bow in the centre of the gore.
Overall.. amazing shape, pretty mermaid pattern/colour, and great quality. Read more 181 more words
Oddly on Panache website this model is supposed to start from the 28F and not the 28E. Yet I found it in 28E on Bravissimo's website. I have the Cleo Breeze Longline Padded Balconnet (9025) in 28E and was excited to buy an other longline from Cleo. The cups are similar with the same construction in three sections and it fits almost the same. The main difference is in the band. Spencer's band is strechier than Breeze's because of the fabric. Spencer has only three hooks and I personnaly prefer the five hooks on my Breeze longline but it is only my opinion. I love the blue of this bra: it is very bright and lovely.
