    Used to fit

    This bra fits nicely. The band is a little tight (underwire presses into my sternum), but I think it will stretch out in a few wears and be perfect.

    UPDATE: Switched to 28D

    This bra is not owned any more

    • We seem to be very similar in size and shape (I think), and I've been eyeing this bra on Amazon for a while now! I'm not sure if I should buy 28D or 28DD, though... Was there a particular reason you sized up in this one?

      I actually got this one first based on Bratabase reviews and then sized down after. The 28D fits perfect on me!

    • Ah, gotcha! The photos are if the 28DD though, right?

    • Yeah I haven't retaken photos and measured the 28D yet, but I gave the DD to a friend who's slightly bigger and the D is perfect!

    • river_wilde I just responded to your comment on my other cleo bra as well, but I've uploaded the new measurements and pics for all of my currently owned bras including this one in the 28D

    Didn't fit

    It is with both a heavy heart and a dose of frustration that I say: I think I'm giving up on Ardour.

    I first tried Masquerade's 28D, but the cups were too small. Then I tried Panache Black's version in 28DD, but the cups were too large. Then I tried Masquerade's 28DD, and it was damn near perfect -- but the lace detail on the straps was extremely uneven. So I ordered the (apparently) last remaining Masquerade Ardour in 28DD on the internet... and the cups were a touch larger/taller (still smaller than Panache Black's version, however), causing some gapping. Not a ton, but enough to make it not ... worth $80 to me. Especially given how easily the top of the cups play peekaboo with most of my necklines.

    I wanted to love it. I was determined that this was -my- bra. You know, the ONE. But I think the fact of the matter is that it is just a bit too shallow on bottom and open/tall on top for me.

    It's gorgeous and it's comfortable, and it is very high quality. It's sexy, and the mulberry color is rich and wonderful (and surprisingly not too visible through lighter clothing). But I think I'll be sending this beauty back out into the world to find an owner better suited for it.

    Live on and be glorious, Ardour.

      I have a feeling that the Panache Black Ardour in 28D could be fitting for you.

    • Merana *Sigh* ...Unfortunately, I think you may be right. Lol. I've been looking around for one with free shipping and returns, but so far I'm not having any luck.

      I keep my fingers crossed that you find one! Well, at least it looks like we might be close in what can fit us, if a cup size apart. That deserves further research:)

    • Merana I agree! Perhaps we will find that in many bras we are similar, if only a cup size apart. I will keep you posted on future bra successes and failures. :)

      We are (almost) bra size twins! I'm supposed to be a 28D, but my ribcage measurement is 26.5, so I would probably fit in a 26DD. May I know if you will be listing the bras that don't work for you in bratabase?

    • addictedtoyou Yay boob twins! I am actually returning them to Amazon for a refund, because I can't handle even a small financial loss at the moment (this bra in particular was super expensive). BUT I may list my 28D orange animal print Cleo Maddie and my 28D Cleo Zia soon, because they can't be returned (and they didn't cost me nearly as much).
