I have been encouraged to try Cleo bras because of my wide and shallow breasts. I need long underwires, and I've found that seamed cups provide by far the best "lift" and support. I have a couple of 28DD Panache bras in which the cups are too small, so I decided to try an E in Cleo Alexa. The underwires are perfect and the center gore is perfect. I fully fill out the bottom of the cups, and they give me great uplift. Unfortunately, there is a lot of extra material left over on the top of the cups (the fuchsia lace part). Sewing a simple seam in the cups makes them perfect, but, of course, I'd prefer not to have to alter my bras. The underwires, the support, and the fit of the bottom part of these cups does encourage me to try more Cleo bras, I just wish it was possible to try one on before buying... Shani A from Phoenix AZ

This bra fits perfectly. My shoulders feel no pressure or pull whatsoever. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I've just received this bra in the mail; it is very pretty and the band is supportive albeit tight (it is new after all). What ruins the bra for me is that the straps dig into my shoulders and it hurts (and yes, I did have them on the loosest setting before trying the bra on). I am a US 38J, which is 38GG according to Panache; I thought getting the size matched just right would leave me with a perfectly-fitting bra, but that is not the case. Same issue with the Panache Alexa bra :(.

Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback! Disappointed to hear about the issue with the straps. The main support of the bra comes from the correct underband and only 10% comes from the straps. You might want to try going down a band size to 36, in some cases changing the band size can relieve the pressure on the straps. If you are looking for thicker straps, check out our Sculptresse by Panache line. Bra straps in that line tend to be a bit thicker and have some extra felt padding. Rosie from New York, NY

I love this bra! It looks really pretty in real life, the pictures don't do it justice. Great support, even with just two hooks in back, which i was pleasantly surprised to find out. As far as price, it's no more expensive than anything you'd find at a certain store in the mall, but of way better quality. If you like paisley print and are on the hunt for a bra that actually fits, get this. You won't be disappointed. just someone ;)

This bra is very pretty, nice fabric, etc. I rated it a 3 because the fit is so off. While the band fits like my other Cleo bras the cups were very, very generous. They gave me good lift but I didn't even begin to fill them out. Such a surprise because I have so many other Cleo bras in a 28G. I returned it for a 28FF and may have to go to a 28F.

Yay! A pretty, comfortable and supportive bra, not garish, just right. I bought this bra last month at a department store and had the straps shortened a few centimeters (why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. I would have given it 5 stars had the straps been adjustable from the back to the front. With this shortening it's perfect). I run between a 32F and a 32G depending on the brand, this one being a 32ff. This bra fits perfect in the cups and the straps are pretty and thus has been a nice addition to wear with thin strapped shirts/dresses. I tend to spill out of bras if the separation in the middle is not high enough, I don't have this problem with this bra, hurray! I tend to order the more expensive bras on this site to be sure I get quality, however, don't let its price fool you, it is just as good as the upper end priced bras. I was lucky and got mine on sale for about half the selling price which was nice and unexpected at the chic store from which I purchased it, still at this price on HerRoom, it is a great bra.
