Stormy Fantasy ; Cleo – Minnie 70HH

cleo minnie
This July is horrible – instead of summer, we have April. Storms interluded with moments of sunlight, flowers which are either dusting or soaking wet. A month of contrasts. Just as contrasting Minnie is, about which I will tell you today.

I confess that when I got the package from the distributor and I saw Minnie inside I was surprised. It wasn’t my choice – I wanted one of the more coloristically expressive models. Later, after trying it out I noticed it shapes my breasts in a weird way. Pointy way. Sounds stormy already, doesn’t it? Pointy boobs are the unfortunate scourge in cups sewn that way (three seams).



Success from Cleo! Minnie’s gore reaches my chest. Careful readers know it’s a recurring problem for me. Minnie gets the job done which gets it a special heart and a plus from me. It’s comfortable, doesn’t cause any discomfort. Material adapts to wearer’s body, which thankfully causes the pointiness to reduce. You can easily call Minnie a lounge bra 😉


Netted top of the cup with openwrork is gorgeous and it doesn’t stretch on breasts, doesn’t graze either. Size – wise, it’s barely right – as you can see, a minimal quadraboob appears on those fuller days of the cycle. Bra’s front is stiff, the band streches like it should and we don’t have the lace on ham effect. Shoulder straps are standard Cleo pseudojaqucard elastics – they don’t graze at all.




Only two clasps on the fastening, I don’t know why, usually my sizes comes with three. Someone saved me some stretching in the morning 😉



Esthetically, Minnie is a hippie’s dream come true: it looks as if someone sprinkled  some fabric dye onto wet material, left it all for some time and then was reminded what he was supposed to do something with it. In other words – someone was inspired with ice dye 😉



Pink bow on the gore fits with cups’ color scheme. Everything fits together without crossing the edge of design madness, a disease which happens to some British designers. Wire channels feature not-too-romantic typography again – am I the only person who thinks about the trend with brand names on rubbers from boxer shorts?



Panties are typical briefs – size is how I expect it to be in the Panache family – 40 fits L and that’s it. A shame the back’s all plain; a nice decorative pattern could help it a lot . . . or just make it transparent 😉

Bra’s prize is 180 PLN – with this level of comfort and structure such a prize is acceptable.

It seems that Minnie’s new incarnations are truly a Cleo evergreen design – which version do you like the most or which one is missing for you?
