This bra almost didn't fit, but it does fit. It best caters to people who have broad roots, medium height or short roots, with average projection and a conical shape. If you feel like the Cleo Marcie and/or the Cleo Hettie are too narrow in the wires for you, this might work.
I tried this on knowing it probably wouldn't fit. It's a 30D, and I'd need at least a 30DD. It's a cute bra. And for the price I paid, I wish I found my size. The straps seem kind of wide. There was some quad boob at the top, but some space at the bottom. I don't know if a bigger size would have made it fit better.
This bra was my least favorite buy. Such an odd fit! I bought the padded and unpadded version. The padded created quadboob. It was too small for me at the time. The unpadded though... my breasts didnt fill the bottom because it was too close to my skin, overflowed the top and created like muffins. I was a 32F at the time as well. 32E now, still a weird fit. Idk whats up with this bra. Im FOB as well.
This bra is soft and pretty. I love the light grey color and the pink bow. The straps are shiny!
I think it fits true to size. Unfortunately, the whole thing is just too wide for me. The wires are about an inch beyond my breast tissue on the sides, the gore is a touch too wide, and the straps are in my armpits. I get way too much side coverage and the front is only covered on accident because everything about the bra is too large on me. My nipples are in the lace top portion of the cup and I almost have quadboob after scooping and swooping. ...I also get wrinkles in the bottom. I thought maybe I just had the front pulled down too low but put pulling it up feels wrong- after I scoop and swoop again, it creeps back down anyway.
I would say that the cups are shallow friendly which is nice to see in a non-foam bra.
Overall, this is lovely and I'm glad I got to try it! Unfortunately the shape mismatch and scaling will make me hesitate to try these again in the future.
First impression: This is a wide bra. The band is wide (yes!), the straps are wide (yes!), the wires are wide (no!), the gore is wide (no!), everything is wide.
This is a true to size 30 band. I stretched it (fairly hard) to 78cm (30.7") and I can easily fit a fist under the band on the loosest hook. It doesn't seem to ride up too much though so I didn't mark the band as too loose.
The cups run small. I think they fit me volume-wise but are too wide and too closed on top, especially near the centre gore. It wrinkles a little on my smaller boob and ...quads in the middle on my bigger boob, though it's not terribly obvious.
I'm actually surprised by how much I like the colour. It's a very light ashy grey. I don't care for the pinstriped pink bow (which is also quite wide) or the heart-shaped white trim on the seam between the opaque and mesh sections (which shows under thin tops). The overall look is fairly plain but not ugly.
It's a reasonably comfortable bra but not a perfect fit and I don't think it flatters my bust. I'll hang on to it for now and see how it holds up. Read more 99 more words
The band on this bra fits really tight and to actually wear it, I need an extender. I think part of the issue is that the cut of this bra is all wrong for me. It is wide in the cup but really shallow. I am full on bottom, but this gives me a quad-boob effect. I needed a bigger band and maybe a higher cup size. I bought this because I was measured in a boutique as 38g, but parfait bras are a little small for me. On bratabase, it measures me as a 38gg overall and a 38g in Panache, which is the brand that fits me best thus far. This one fits even smaller than my other parfait bras, which are pretty snug. When I measure the band, it does have good stretch, but I may have stretched it out a bit by using an extender. Overall, I hate this bra, but the bra itself is cute. I've only had the bra about 4 weeks.
It's overall a great shape, and for a soft cup, gives me some awesome cleavage, but I ordered at least one cup size too small. Maybe two.. I don't know if it runs small, or if I miss-orderd, because I was going off my favorite bra, but that's the only one I own that fits, so maybe it just runs small.
