Surprised by this bra as I typically do not buy soft cup bras but like the Fantasie one I own I could not pass up the print. The fit is comfortable while giving me a nice projected shape. The gore sits flat on my sternum (yay!) and the band fits comfortably. I am surprised there is not more of this brand in the database. Another great Polish brand bra for uplifting, projecting and giving a round shape. Like Ewa, the wires are closer set and more narrow to help lift and project the breast. I think this is an engineering marvel when they do lift my girls like that!
This was my first Nessa bra and I purchased it because it was on sale. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> So I didn't have any high hopes, having had an earlier disappointment with Avocado. I have the Flame/taupe colour version, which is rather striking irl (looks weird in pics). Imagine my joy when this bra turned out to be almost in par with Ewa Michalak! The fit is very consistent (I have 3 Nessa bras now), the band runs true to size and is quite tight. Nessa has this lovely, wide and soft strap material, which I absolutely love. Also, the straps are more to the ...center in the front as compared to EM S, Sm and Pl models. The overall cut is classic, more generic in appearance than EM bras, but the cups are comfortably shaped and the materials (mesh and lace in this case) soft and high quality. The cup sizing is gravitating towards small, so if you're on the upper limit of your known cup size, do size up for Nessa. The only minus I can think of with this bra (and its sister models "Soft", all sharing the same cut) is that it gives me a very slight but clear horizontal nipple peak line in profile as opposed to the clearly uplifted one you get with EM bras. As I prefer the perky profile, it's a significant minus. But as an everyday bra, under clothes, this is a great one. Read more 139 more words
This is from my shopping trip to Poland! Feel free to send me a message if you want any more info on that. For reference, I believe that I had short, narrow roots with a very projected, omega shape. My best Cleo fit is the Meg then Marcie/Melissa.
This in my mind fits similarly to the Selena that I also listed, except in a gray color with fern-embroidery. Straps are soft and stretchy, so I feel like I have to adjust them farther than usual. Same slight east-west look, slight tear-drop shape, would be good as an everyday bra I think but not if you want a va-voom look.The 75 is just a smidge too loose for me on the first hook, and testing the tensity vs the Selena, this one is softer and stretches much more easily. If you like the firmness of Cleos, you might just want to do the 70 and extender for this one.
