Bras I Want

There’s a few bras I want. See of these bras, I can’t find in my size, and some I can’t afford. 😥

Cleo Marcie

i don’t know if this bra would actually fit me, but I’m looking for either a 28dd, or a 28e.

Cleo Lucy

again, I’m not sure which size I would need. The black 30dd fit me, but the white 300dd was a little too big. So again, either a 28dd, or a 28e

Cleo Darcy

There’s a 99% chance that this bra won’t fit me! as I believe it’s better for shallow women! but I want it.

I assume I’d need a 28e

I couldn’t even tell you what size I would need in this bra.

Just because it’s houndstooth. Size. 30dd

Speaking of houndstooth… I absolutely love houndstooth.

Now this set below, I actually ordered last week, Wednesday, but I never received an email from the seller confirming the price, so, I guess, technically I didn’t order it.

It’s possibly not the right size either. It’s a 65E, which some sites say is 30dd, and some say it’s 30d. So we need to keep our fingers crossed and hope it’s a 30dd, otherwise it won’t fit. 🙏🏾

And yes, I ordered the panties too. In size M, which I’m hoping fits like xs. 😳

Update: okay, so I spoke too soon. I received the shipping confirmation for the set above literally a few hours after this post. It’s coming from Japan so hopefully I get it in two weeks or so.

Cleo Lucy black & white 30dd comparison

I’ve read many times on bratabase that the Cleo Lucy bra in black, as well as a lot of other bras in black, run smaller. I bought the Lucy in both black and white in size 30dd. The white didn’t fit, but the black did. Click on the picture for the reviews.

 

This post is going to be mostly pictures.

First things first, the tags are completely different. The font styles are different. The black tag has ‘Cleo’ in all capitals, but the white tag has it in all lower case letters.

The way the sizes are labeled on the tags is different as well. The white tag also has the washing instructions with the sizes, but the black one doesn’t.

  

Cups:

You can see that the double lined portion of the cup on the white bra comes up higher than it does on the black part.

The gore:

With the top lined up:

Where the cup meets the strap:

When the bands are lined up.

The bands:

With the bottom of the band lined up

The top of the bands lined up.

The part of the band with the ‘eye’ is longer on the white.

The part if the band with the hook is slightly longer on the black.

Overall the white Lucy was just bigger. I wonder if the bras were made at different factories, or if they’re from different seasons.

I didn’t take any measurements for the differences, although I should have. But it’s too late now, because the white bra has been returned.

White Lucy bra

Black Lucy bra

Cleo Lucy white 30dd

Color: White

About the bra:

its a white bra made of both lace and mesh. In the 30dd the bottom half of the bra is 2 pieces of fabric, while the top is one. This is a multi-cup bra, featuring one horizontal seam, and one vertical seam, separating the bra cup into three parts.

The upper part of the lace and has a floral design.

The lower part has small flowers randomly placed throughout.

The very top of the cup has a small circular design, which is also present on my Cleo Minnie bra.

the gore has a small bow, the only bow on the whole bra.

has nice thin straps.

This is a cute, simple, yet not boring bra.

The review:

The Lucy bra in white fits drastically different in the white color, versus the black color.

I got it from Amazon when they were having their prime day deals, and it was relatively cheap, so I got both black and white.

This bra is too big. It looks ‘okay’ from the front,

But there is wrinkling throughout the cup

There is a good amount of space at the top.

The gore didn’t tack, there was actually enough room for me to put one finger down there.

side profile was ok, but you can see the wrinkling.

The side profile with my cami on isn’t a good look.

This is will be returned. I initially bought it so I could dye it brown, but I don’t feel like being bothered to go through with an exchange.

The review:

I probably made a mistake by wearing this bra for the first time on a day when I had to work. I wore this bra for almost 12 hours, and I found myself wanting to rip it off at around 7:30pm. During the course of my workday, every so often I found myself adjusting the bra. I’ve been wearing 32Cs for years, so I’m not used to such a tight fitting band.

But I wore this to work because I knew I was going to keep it. I got it from Amazon when they were having their prime day deals, so it was relatively cheap.

This is probably the only bra that I only that fits correctly, or comes close to fitting correctly.

There was very little gaping. One of my, breasts is smaller than the other one, so there was some room.

The side profile was ok, I prefer a little more rounder, but it seems like it’s my natural shape.

 

The upper part of the cup, and the seams were visible in the tank I wore above, but not on the dress I wore to work (which was a little thicker).

the biggest issue I had with this bra today, was there was something about the wire on my smaller side that kep irritating the side of my breast. It almost felt like there was something pointy sticking out of the side of the underwire. I ended up getting a red mark, which will turn into a dark mark soon. 😔

The dark marks outside of the black circle are irritation marks from wearing 32Cs.

Circled area is area of (current) irritation
