I was assisted in the Leeds store (Paula, from your Liverpool store) by a lady who said she was the same size as I am and when I described the shape I prefer, she totally understood that too, as she said she prefers the same. Something that pushes you in and up. She went away and the Cleo Sofia was one of those she chose. I love the lace panel over the front, as a fluctuate massively within a month. The panel stops any overspill. I wear sports bras for about 90% of my job, as I’m a Pilates and Yoga teacher and this bra felt similar to a sports bra in its shape and style. I’d love jewel coloured versions of this too, please, Bravissimo! Paula was brilliant and also seemed to recognise my style too, bringing me choices that I would pick for myself.
My one and only issue (and the reason for not giving 5 stars) is that the straps are not as fully adjustable as other bras I wear. I’ve a very small frame and had to get my sewing kit out to shorten the straps a little, otherwise the weight of my boobs in the underwire can leave me with crushed ribs. If they adjusted to a shorter length this would make this bra the best one I’ve ever bought!
