I’m switching gears today to show you my favorite unlined bra, the Lily by Cleo, a Panache sub-brand. Lily has been discontinued but was available in a variety of fun, trendy colors and patterns. Cleo’s unlined bras – Marcie, Lucy, Lucy’s replacement Kali, and Lily’s replacement Erin – are known for giving incredible lift and a very rounded “apple” shape. I own Lily in size 30FF. Let’s check her out in action:
Lily is almost a perfect fit on me. I have a little bit of extra fabric at the top of the cup on my smaller breast, but it’s nothing I can’t live with. Lily works best for narrow rooted, evenly full breasts, especially ones with short roots. Since I tick all those boxes, it would make sense she’s a good fit on me.
The wire width on the sides is a little wider than Comexim bras, but still a good width for me:
And the aqua and pink color combination really pops against my tan skin:
I also appreciate how Lily’s fabric is stiffer than lace but not itchy against my skin. She’s lightweight for hot summer days, yet not sheer. I’m not a fan of the pattern on Erin, and unfortunately it doesn’t look like Cleo will be continuing any form of the Lily or Erin cut for their AW2015 collection. You can still find this exact bra on eBay, other sizes on eBay, some Magenta and Orange sizes on eBay, and a few Swan sizes on eBay. There are also a few Erin versions on eBay as well! Ebay is your friend when it comes to the Lily and Erin cut!
