Picked this bra up at Nordstrom, and I have got to come right out and say it - I love this bra!! So much so that I am getting my hands on the plunge version, too.
The bra, while being full coverage, looks remarkably delicate and light. This is due to the fact that it's pretty much entirely lace, with the top panel being stretchy - perfect!
The fit is really good on me, with the band sitting quite snug (it took me a little while to get used to it) on the loosest hook, leaving me feeling secure and comfortable. My only issue is with the bit of ... elastic/lace across the band below the cups, which does not like to lay flat, tending to roll when I'm wearing the bra. If it rolls out, it's fine, but occasionally it rolls under and pinches my skin underneath it. This is definitely not a deal breaker, however, as I just make sure it's rolled out when I put it on.
This bra gives me a very natural shape, but it is very uplifted as well - I seriously can't complain. Even though I've been wearing molded bras for a long time, getting used to this shape took no time at all and I love it under most clothes!

I decided to finally try the Andorra because so many people love this bra. I've also read that people who do well in the Envy tend to have fit issues with Andorra; I fall into this category. While I don't love Envy (the bottom part of the gore is too wide), it fits me well overall and is comfortable. The Andorra was a total shape mismatch.
The cups are too shallow at the wire; this caused my breasts to be pushed up and caused quadding at the top even though I feel the volume on the bra was correct. The shallowness also caused me to have pointy, 50's ... torpedo shaped bustline. Not attractive.
Side note - I tried the Panache Clara this week as well and had the same issues with Clara as I did with Andorra; not surprising as they are based on the same cut.
Appearance wise, I thought this bra was nice. I had ordered the Andorra in the color 'Pearl'; it was very pretty & suited my skin tone.
Returning this one.
Edited to add: I have since been told Andorra runs small in the cup (which is what caused the torpedo-like shape). I will try again in a 32G.

This is the type of bra that I just had to try, cause I've heard it mentioned so often. Unfortunately it didn't work for me. I usually try on a bra and gather my initial thoughts, then wash it to wear for at least a day before writing a review, but this bra was wrong straight out of the gate.
Although the bra fit and looked lovely with its scalloped lace edging and great teal color, I did not like the way my breast looked in it. It lacked lift and shaping. It simply cradled my breast, and covered it like a hat would cover your head. No cleavage, no boosting, no shaping, it just simply covered my breast. My side profile was low and a bit pointy as well, and I really don't like that look on me.
The more bras I try the more I realize the gem I've found in Cleo bras... Namely Lily, Lucy, and Melissa (review coming soon on Melissa).

Very comfortable bra. I was measured as a 30G for a different bra, which fit pretty well, but this is far more comfortable. I have to close it on the tightest clasp, and still have a bit of room (it's secondhand though, so take that with a grain of salt), but it's the first bra I've owned that doesn't quadboob, is filled out completely, and isn't painfully tight. Love it!

This is my current go-to bra. It contains on the side and the support panel helps bring the girls forward. I'm not 100% convinced I like the shape it gives but I find that I care less and less the more I wear it because it's just so darn comfortable.

This bra is gorgeous. I love stretch lace -- I hope it holds up. I also have the bra in 32F, which I realize now is not quite as good a fit, but sometimes I'm thinner, and anyway, stretch lace makes the fit more forgiving. It gives a beautiful shape, but it took a little getting used to since I was used to droopy, too-small bras. I think this bra would be especially good for women with softer breasts, as it gives support and lift without the feeling of a lot of structure.

I wanted to love this bra. It's very pretty and definitely feels sexy. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to quite work for me. The band feels good - maybe on the tight side of snug. However, the wires are too wide for me. The underwire nearly hits my back. It isn't painful when trying on the bra, but I don't think it would be comfortable for long periods of wear. I also think I need a bit more projection at the wire. Despite the shape mismatch, it feels like it would be supportive and the seams are smooth enough to not show through clothing.
The lacy material is a little itchy/irritating, but reviews suggest this lessens after washing and wearing the bra. In my experience, that has been true for other lacy bras, so I wouldn't let that hold me back from trying it.

Purchased used. Beautiful bra - one of a few bras that seem to fit my FoB with wide roots perfectly. Center gore tacks well, with side wings high enough to enclose my breast tissue that's been pushed out from wearing the wrong size for years. Bra creates a more natural side silhouette as opposed the perfectly rounded fully lined types. Note: the horizontal seam does show under thin flowy shirts. I can only imagine the seam will even more pronounced under a tight fitting t-shirt. I am curious how long the stretch lace will last both the stretchiness and how long it will before I poke holes in it.

I have this bra in pink and it is a cup size too small on me and the back is pretty tight. A better size for me would have been 34ff. That, being said, I still wear it, although it gives me a pointy shape which I am not too fond of, but I think that is because it is both a cup and band size too small. I really like the sling this bra has and I think without it my boobs would droop.
That being said, although this bra supports my full on top boobs, they do not lift it all. I may exchange this bra.
The cup material has actually stretched some and i no longer quadboob at all. The cup fits, although the band is quite tight, I am thinking a 34F would actually be a more comfortable fit, but I have a bra extender so I wont be exchanging this, even though the pointy unlifted shape is not ideal.

I like this bra for the stretch lace with wide wires I like and need.
