Today we’re going to take a brief look at one of my favorite bras to date, the parrot-printed colorway of Cleo’s Lily. Much of what I previously wrote in my Aqua Lily 30FF review can be repeated here, so I won’t bore you with the same information. But there’s a very important note I want to make here: Lily was manufactured in 4 colorways – Aqua/Pink, Magenta/Orange, Parrot Print, and Swan Print. The printed styles of Lily run bigger than the solid styles, by almost an entire cup volume. I would say, from experience, Parrot and Swan run 3/4 cup bigger than my Aqua Lily. I have Swan in a 30FF, and I will review it later and explain the alterations to the cup I had to make for it to be workable. My Parrot print is a 28FF, a full cup size down from my Aqua 30FF, but fits quite well. Let’s take a look at this cutie:
I like the parrot print more than I thought I would. It’s unique, without being obnoxious.
As per usual for Cleo bras, the shape is fantastic. Lifted and round. But it’s the side profile I get from this Lily that I’m in looooove with.
Seriously, as my friend PetiteCollegiate put it, it’s a basketball beauty. You can tell that my left breast is really close to wanting to jump out of the top or side of the cup, but it’s not enough so that I have to re-adjust all of the time.
The fit of this Parrot has left me to wonder if I should pursue a 28FF Swan print, rather than my current 30FF, but I did at one point own a 30F Swan print and I felt it was a bit small. So if you find yourself lusting after a Lily (and who wouldn’t??), just keep in mind the fit notes I have mentioned here. And as always, YMMV! Since Lily has been long discontinued, she is tough to find sometimes, but eBay is your friend. There are a few sizes left here, a 30FF here, more Aqua ones here, Magenta here, and my favorite Swan print here. There’s also a few panties left!
