This is a great bra, honestly. Only two things: the vertical seam will show under some shirts, and (on me) the lace at the top of the cup gapes slightly. Otherwise, this was worth the money. Naomi from New York

Great support, brings the girls up front. This bra gives a round shape which I prefer. However on my smaller frame the center comes up to high and can irritate. The band could really use a third hook though as it has some serious give after a day or two of wear. Very little show through unless shirt is very tight or very thin. Gives great lift and a good utility bra. Handles me chasing a toddler with no slips or surprise pop outs at all. Jacquelyn from Aurora,CO

This bra is amazing. It sits flat against my sternum, it doesn't hurt at all around my ribs, it gets my breasts out in front of me so I have full range of motion in my arms, and the open top gives enough flexibility in size to accommodate my full cup size difference between breasts. Incidentally, it makes my breasts look amazing. Amy from Oregon

I ordered this bra awhile back, after successfully purchasing and comfortably wearing the Marcie bra, but I kept forgetting to review. It is cute and, although the seams so show a little under very tight things, it's pretty discreet. However, under certain white and light coloured shirts, the lace detail along the top of the cups appears almost black. The cups themselves are better suited for wider breasts, and although I did like the rounded shape the cups gave, they do not offer the best support. The straps slip (I have a narrow back and sloping shoulders) and for some reason the band is not very tight. Although I am a 32 band, which I ordered, I've had the bra on the tightest setting ever since I bought it. I really want to like the bra; it's cute and gives a good shape, but it's just not that comfortable. All of the other bras I've purchased from this line fit perfectly, except for this one. The center gore is also a little wide in comparison to the other bras I purchased from Cleo by Panache. Perhaps I simply ordered the wrong style for my build. Francesca from USA

I Love this site! The bras are gorgeous, this bra fits well all day. The center boning I'd a little high, but I got used to it. I plan to buy notes they are true to size and very feminine! Niki from North Carolina

The wire literally cut into my skin on the inside of my breasts, at the top. I'm thinking that the wires are too high for me, although I've had other bras with a very similar cut. Very disappointing. I could not wear this bra more than one time. A very expensive trial. Teresa from Irvine, CA

The bra is very pretty and fits well in the back and side. However, the center front is rather tall and could be a problem on a petite frame. Jessica from Cincinnati, OH, United States

First let me say I was super excited to find a cute bra in my size. It is usually very difficult to find a bra with large cups and a smaller waist band. I love that this bra fits well under my tank tops without showing over the top, although as other reviews stated you can see the seams and the lace through thinner shirts. While I am happy with this bra I have a few issues with it. It provides a certain amount of lift, but the straps do not support the weight of my chest. The straps are very small and they dig and cause pain in my shoulders. It would be more ideal if they were thicker or padded. When I wear it it literally makes my chest look like a shelf. The other issue I have is with the underwires. The underwire that comes up in the middle digs into my chest and my breasts (when I lay on my side), and the underwire under the arm digs as well. Overall I give this bra 3 stars. It is super cute and may work well for smaller (than H) cup sizes but there are some definite issues with comfort. I am very pleased with the fit (I am having some issues with the band and straps but I am still getting used to the bra and adjusting it as needed). If you have bigger breasts like me you may want to look into a more comfortable option. Ashley from Cleveland, OH, USA

This is a great, comfortable bra. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the bra isn't completely smooth under T-shirts. Cleo 30E is pretty much the only bra size I've found that actually fits me, and this one fits true to size. Annie from New Jersey

I really love the fit of the bra. However, the seam down the center can show through thinner/more fitted clothes. If it were a seamless bra, it would be perfect! Ginny

This bra is very versatile and can be worn with many different types of tops. The band fits very well. The only problem I really have had is that the tag of the bra actually can get pokey. The shape is a very round, even shape. The cup is also very rounded, so there is no "point" with the cups. I'm not sure if I'm wild about this shape, but it is very comfortable. I would not recommend this bra shape for shallow breasts. The straps are not the most comfortable I have experienced. They do seem to be very sturdy for their width, however. The cups I have had a few issues with. Although they fit for the most part, I still find that I have a bit of "quad-boob" after wearing them for a couple of hours or longer, but it's not too bad. The gore of the bra, when the bra is properly adjusted, does lie on the sternum. The only other issue I have had is that the underwires tend to poke me underneath my arms on the sides. I believe this is due to the shape of the bra. If you have breasts that point outwards, this bra is very good at shaping your breasts back towards your chest. One of the things I really like about this bra is the lift. This bra gives incredible lift, even with the issues I have had with the cups. It is also very sturdy and holds up all day. Despite the issues, this is an excellent everyday bra that is very versatile. JL Green from USA

Fantastic bra. It's comfortable, its soft, it's affordable. I can wear this bra all day and not even notice I'm wearing a bra. Would definitely recommend this bra! Kimberly from Sacremento/CA/USA

I was fitted in a 34G and I love it. It comes up quite high in the middle for me but it's not overly uncomfortable for everyday wear. The fitter originally estimated my size to be a 36F (which i also assumed) but had to decrease my band size and up my cup size to make this bra fit properly. This is my first bra that fits properly and I'm very happy with my purchase. kesha from CO

This is a truly great bra! For the longest time I've been looking for an "everyday" bra that is comfortable, supportive, and can be worn under t-shirts, and Juna is that bra. I got this in the gorgeous strawberry color and it's fabulous for summer. This bra gives "push up" as "lift" instead of "squash" and those are the hardest bras for me to find. My only complaint about this is that the sides are not as tall as I would like, but I can't take off a star for that, because this bra is not designed to have tall sides. For those of you who, like me, have to buy before trying because of limited availability in sizing, if you want more than "demi" coverage in Juna go up a cup size. These cups are fairly shallow and short. Shani A from Phoenix AZ

This is a great push-up bra, which is difficult to do in my size (34F). The cup size runs a little small. It is also comfortable. Sarah from United States

Bra fits well, is comfortable and has good support. I really needed a good everyday bra in a 28GG, this was one of the only ones in nude so I ordered it. The part where the lace attaches to the cup shows through your clothes. Panache, please make a t-shirt bra in 28GG! Momom from Missouri

I ordered the Juna in two sizes; 32F and 30G. The bands on my other Cleo bras run tight, so I was expecting the same from the Juno. (My favorite bra is Marcie in 32F... fits like a glove.) Unfortunately, the band and cups were too small when I tried on the 32F. The lace on the top of the bra laid flat, but only because I was spilling out a bit. The 30G fit appropriately, but the lace and the seam on the front made the bra look a bit "lumpy" under clothing. The lace no longer laid flat for me with the bigger size. The construction, straps and fabric were all wonderful. I just don't think this bra worked well for my bust shape.

Cleo by Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback and for being a loyal customer! There is always a chance that not every bra fits every customer and maybe this molded version wasn’t the perfect bra for you however seeing your feedback about lumpy cups and the lace not laying flat, I would recommend trying a size 30FF and seeing how that would fit. I think it might work better for you! Liz from Bloomfield, MI

I tried this bra in two band sizes - 30E and 32DD. The 32DD almost fit, but the cups didn't fit quite right. The 30E fits much better. It is amazingly supportive for a demi! This is also the first balconette style that I've been able to wear. Still, I have some complaints. Even though I was quite enamored at first, after wearing it a few times, I find that the center gore gets rather painful towards the end of the day (leaving red marks on my skin). Also, the hooks in the back are quite irritating and itchy (never had this problem before). In addition, the vertical seams on the cups show through most of my tops. Lastly, the shaping is more projected than I'm used to, so my breasts look smaller form the front, but slightly bigger from a side profile (this isn't so much a complaint as an observation.) In general, I think this is a beautiful and supportive bra, but the issues I'm having make me think it is really not worth the money.

Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback! Style 6461 Juna Balconnet is really a truly balconnet style that offer “milkmaid” cleavage look. It really gets those girls up! Disappointed to hear about the other comfort issues, but I wonder if you “broke” the bra in after wearing and washing it. Sometimes it takes a few wears just like with shoes!

This is a great basic style for those of us who are past a D cup but not "plus size", and I love the fashion colors and styles. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This bra is great except for a few factors. The seems on the cup and where the lace meet the cup show up through on almost every shirt I tried to wear it with. Another issue is that the straps are not fully adjustable. For me this means they are just not quite short enough for my torso. I am sad to have to send it back because it is also very comfortable but it is just not for someone who is 5'2. lauren

I originally purchased this bra in a 32GG, the straps were too loose so I sent it back for a tighter bandwidth. Received the 30GG and the bandwidth fit perfectly, but my breast were bulging out of the cup. Just sent it back a second time for 30H. I'm hoping this will fit me better. t from pittsburgh

Lovely bra. I had to return it because the band width was too big. Normally 32 inch band widths fit me perfectly, but, this was just too big. Aside from that, I loved the bra. T

Pretty, smooth, and fantastic for my small rib cage. Would give it a 5 if there were no lace on top-- I still have to wear my Panache Porcelain 30D for full coverage under tighter jersey knits. (Though the cups on the Cleo actually fit better.) Aimee from Providence

Too small! This was a suggestion by Herroom for lifting shallow, mature breasts. I am usually a very full D, or a slightly scant DD. This bra, while very pretty, caused me to bubble out from all sides and the top. I really couldn't wear it. MommaDunne from Ashburn VA
