Cleo Juna in 28DD and 28E - A Review

Review of the Cleo Juna bra in 28DD and 28E

The Cleo Juna is another one of the popular Cleo bras. Since I absolutely love the fit of the Neve Strapless, the Marcie, and the Koko Icon, I wanted to branch out and go for the Cleo Juna too. After trying on both the 28DD and the 28E, I am more confused than ever and may need your help.

Band Size: Loose but that's how I prefer it. Both 28 band bras stretch out to 30".

Cup Size: I feel like the 28DD might be almost too small. The 28E might also be a tad too big. I don't know, and that's why I need your input. The lace wrinkles in the 28E, but is perfect in the 28DD.

Cup Shape: Not terrible but not great either. I feel that this bra is for people who have short and broad roots. There's a ton of horizontal space in the cups of the bra and the wires are very broad. With the 28DD I felt like there was almost not enough vertical coverage.

Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: I wish the cups were actually a tad closer together and that the center gore was a lot lower. It's not causing pain, but it is less than optimally comfortable. It would be more comfortable if I had more bodyfat.

Color: Not for me. I want to get this bra in Ivory.

Verdict: ??? I can't give a good verdict on this bra as I feel that I need to figure out which size suits me better and get the bra in Ivory. I will return these bras as soon. Go for this bra if you have very broad roots, shorter than average roots, moderate shallowness, and don't mind a high pokey gore.

Cleo Koko Icon - A Review

Review of the Cleo Koko Icon Bra

After having great luck with the Cleo Neve Strapless in 30D and the Cleo Marcie in 28DD, I decided to order a Neve Strapless clone in a more sensible color. Enter the Cleo Koko Icon, a wonderfully practical bra in beige. Unsurprisingly, it fit exactly the way I had hoped.

Band Size: Very firm. Stretches out to 29" which is what I like in a 30 band bra. For my regular bras should stretch out to 30" or 30.5" but I prefer my strapless bras to only stretch out to 28" or 29".

Cup Size: Unlike the regular Cleo Neve/Koko, the cups run true to size.

Cup Shape: This bra is shallow and has extremely broad wires. It's great for those who are shallow and have broad roots.

Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: Good. The gore is low and there is decent spacing between the cups for my far apart spaced breasts.

Verdict: 100% because the wires are just a tad narrower than the Cleo Neve Strapless. Great for the classically shallow, broad rooted, and tall rooted.
