Cleo Neve - A Review

Review of the Cleo Neve Bra

I have own just about every Cleo bra that I have wanted to own. The only thing I still don't have is a Cleo Marcie in 28DD in a color that I actually like. However, since Cleo has discontinued the Marcie in 28D and 28DD, I cannot hope for future Cleo Marcies in my size in a good color. However, the Cleo Neve does come in a size that I can wear and comes in a bunch of colors that I like. I found this bra listed on Bratabase for only $15 and I had to buy it. 

Band Size: This bra runs small in the band. The 28DD Cleo Neve stretches out to only 27" so I got the bra in 30D instead. This one is supposed to stretch out to only 29.5" but in reality it is 30.5". Still, it is a good length for me.

Cup Size: A lot of reviews have said that this bra runs small in the cup, and it may indeed run small in the cup in larger cup letters. However, the 30D Cleo Neve runs true to size in the cup.

Cup Shape: This bra is about as perfect as it can get for me in shape. It caters to my tall roots, is moderately broad wired and moderately shallow.

Cup Spacing and Center Gore: This bra has a low gore and the correct amount of spacing in between the cups for me.

Color: I did not think I could wear coral but it is not a terrible color for me. Still though, I will be buying the Cleo Koko (a Neve clone) in a better color for me.

Straps: Straps adjust long enough for me, but I have to adjust them almost all the way to the loosest setting, which is not a good sign for people who have much longer torsos than me. I am short, and I have an average length torso for someone of my height. If you are taller than me and have an average length torso for your height, you will need to adjust the straps all the way to the loosest setting. If you're tall and have an average length torso for your height, you might be out of luck.

Verdict: This bra gets almost 100% because it fits perfectly in every way, but coral is not the best color in the world for me. I will definitely be looking out for this bra (and its clone, the Koko) in better colors for me in the future.
