    This bra runs small in the cups (at least in the pink spot colorway). The 28E fits more like a 28DD, or maybe halfway between a 28DD and a 28E. Major quadboob on my larger side, slight quadboob on the smaller. As far as I can tell considering that it doesn’t have enough volume for me, the wires are fairly narrow, it is somewhat projected, and the top edge of the cup curves in sharply. I do think the shape would work for me if it were the right size, so I’ll have to see if I can find another Marcie sister cut that isn’t hideous. While I’m never going to love the Cleo aesthetic, I don’t totally hate this one, which is more than I can say for most Cleo bras. I do like the charm at the center which is a cut-out of a rose, and I like the color combination as well.

    The band runs a little tight, but not extremely. It is very firm and hard to stretch, though. The straps are a little wide set, but again not enough to cause problems. The wires are quite wide and go over near my armpits, leaving space between them and the end of my breasts. I fill the bottom of the cups well but have a little trouble with the top edge, as I often do with cups of this construction. I'm fairly shallow/tall rooted and any horizontal seams cause problems - this only does a tiny bit. I see a little bit of puffiness with the mesh/embroidered top portion, but the top edge does lay flat - aided by the scalloped edge that hides the tiny amount of cutting in that may be happening.

    Overall, comfortable but nothing really special. Unless being a well-enough-fitting bra is special enough (it kind of is!). I wish the wires were narrower.

    I was not a fan of unpadded bras until I tried Cleo. This fits great for the most part and gives a nice rounded shape. The band is firm for a 28 which is great for me as I need a 26. The cups cut in the top just a little, but it's not very noticeable. Even though the gore is too high, it doesn't poke or cut in because the underwires are about 1/2" shorter than the channels so I pushed the wires towards the outside of the cups :)

    I really love the pattern of Zia bra! This one seems to be a much better fit, although I have a doubt about its wires,maybe they are wide on me?It's really comfortable and lifting, the band is very firm and I am wearing an extender sewn by me, in pictures. Without it, I get just a little quad boobs and I feel the band very very tight.I wish the wires were a little bit higher, they end sooner in the wire channel and the space left is aprox. 1 cm. This isn't big problem, it doesn't bother me, but I like higher underwires. My fullness is even to slightly full-on-bottom and my breast are just a little spaced apart than usual chest. I used to achieve this underneath-clothes look by padded bras and now I found that soft bras are much better! I am very pleased! I think I'm going to write an updated post if I keep this bra, because now it's brand new.

    I love the shape this gives my breasts. It puckers where the lace meets the fabric; I don't know if it is because I am not FOT or if it is just how the bra is made.

    Used to fit

    My first bra after measuring myself using the guide on r/abrathatfits. Overall, it fits very well and is tight and supportive enough to feel like a second skin. There are only two, very minor problems: the left hand cup digs in very slightly where it meets the strap (though I feel this may get better after gradual tissue migration) and the bottoms of the cups wrinkle very, very slightly (I think because my breast shape is even but leaning towards full on top).
