    Lovely design and lace top detailing, snug band and more closed cups on top

    The bra is super cute and extremely comfortable. It's not a 100% perfect fit, but better than the few others I have tried. The band is snug and supportive, but the soft material makes it great for wearing for long periods of time. The cups perhaps run slightly small. I still have a small bit of spill over, but it's manageable under clothes. The cups come up to just the right height for me.

    The cup just barely gaps at the top, but I also have quad-boob in this one. The gapping goes away if the straps are clipped together at the back to mimic a racerback, but the quad-boob becomes very evident. The straps are set too far apart for my narrow shoulders, but the band itself fits very comfortably, and if the underwires didn't come up so high at the gore it would be a pretty decent fit.

    When I first got this bra I loved it. It was one of my two first 28G bras and it fit well; I was so happy with it. But after only a couple of weeks it stopped fitting so well. I think I had another breast growth. I think it was minimal, less than a cup size, but now this feels too small in the cups. Which is weird--my 30FFs, which were at first nice and roomy, now fit exactly right, but my 28Gs (excluding the Freya) are a little too tight in the cups. I've now got a slight quadboob in this, and that combined with the ... fact that the gore is a little higher and wider than I prefer makes this bra not worth keeping. It's a shame, because I only ever wore it twice.

    It's a very sturdy bra, which I like. It's got a silky smooth fabric that feels great against my skin and doesn't show through shirts. The geometric print is tasteful without being overbearing (because it's only on the lace and not the fabric). One thing I think is great is that the band is super firm, it really only stretches to 28 inches max. Really excellent bra, my boobs are just being weird, and now that I have some Comexims that fit better I'd kind of like to clear out some space in my bra drawer--but since it technically fits I don't know if I'd better keep ahold of it.

    This is such a beautiful, simple, yet elegant, basic bra. I bought this in white and its so pretty and shiny! I was struggling with what size to get since I'm pretty much in between sizes. I was worried the 28FF would be too small and cause major quad boob but I didn't want the cups to be too big and wrinkle in a 28G. I decided to go with the 28G, and it fits when I first put it on, after scooping and swooping, but as soon as I move, the lacy top part of the cups wrinkle (more so on my larger boob, oddly enough). This ... is the FIRST bra I bought that was too big, and I'm a little worried the 28FF won't fit either - I think the edge of the cups will cut into the top of my boobs. But I'm not sure. All of my other bras that measure the same depth/width in the cup seem to fit better than this.

    The lace part at the top of the cup is firm and doesn't seem to have much stretch to it, so this is one of those bras you have to get just right! I may even try a 30F, since the band on this is super tight (21" and only stretched to 28.5"). And I LOVE that there are 3 hooks and eyes on the back, this is a VERY supportive bra!! But its rather comfy for being so tight and firm. The wires are also very wide and come out all the way under my armpits, but that might be because its being stretched to the max with my 27" ribcage. I think a 30F would be a much better fit. I tightened the straps a good bit to accommodate for the cups being a tad too big, and I think that's what's causing the pointy, conical shape it's giving me. I tried a shirt on to see what it looked like and I felt like Madonna cones sticking out! Lol! But i think if i go down in cup size it may help with this problem (as I've heard this bra gives a nice, natural shape).

    I was also worried about the gore being too tall, since most bras that have a high gore on me usually bother the hell out of me. This bra measured at 2.7" or so, which is pretty tall for my close-set boobs, but surprisingly, its actually very comfortable and not a problem for me at all. I was just about to give up on balconettes for this exact reason (the Cleo Lucy and I do NOT get along)!! But I REALLY love this bra, and I am gonna be on the lookout for a 28FF/30F to possibly swap. Otherwise, I'll be listing this one to sell :( But if you can figure out your size in this bra, I would definitely recommend it!!

    1) As with most bras, the bottom of the cup is never filled completely, and I do get some digging occasionally at the top of the cup.

    2) The side panels come up too high under the arm and it does rub.

    This bra fits well and supports nicely, but the edge digs in a little too much on top for me, and gives me a little bit of quadboob. The cups are also fairly tall, which mismatches with my shorter root. I'm fairly projected and have pretty soft tissue, so this would work for someone whose tissue doesn't have a tendency to overflow. The color, design, and details are beautiful, the band is snug, but the quadboob and too-tall height makes this one a no-go for me.

    Ran quite high under the armpits, made it uncomfortable for me. Love the color, the seam between lining and mesh ran right through my nipple which is also uncomfortable for me. Triple clip in the back makes it very sturdy, and the material felt nice. Was not able to wear this for any length of time, so I have no comments on it's durability or whether it stretches out or not.

    it is gorgeous! fits well with normal posture, top of cups dig in when i push my shoulders back. the top lace detail is not stretchy. not too fond of the crystal detail because i already feel like i'll lose it, but this is a special occasion bra, so it won't have many chances to drop off. the matching brief also has the same crystal detail.
