This a very lovely bra - pretty style, colour and shape. However, the wires just run too wide for me and, in my size (28HH/J), this is common occurrence due to pattern grading. The wires ran quite far behind my armpit and therefore left creasing under the cup, leaving me unsupported. Somehow, despite measuring as a true 28inch, the Marcie bra band has expanded to 30inch in just a few months so it is now worn on the tightest clasp. Not sure why this happened.
I would say that this bra runs true in the cup and band. I fitted the cups well as I am quite balanced in breast shapes, although I need a good 'swoop and scoop' to get into this bra. The Marcie probably not suitable for a "full on the bottom" breast types either. Also, if suit plunges because you have a lot of breast tissue near the gore, I would not recommended this to you either. Despite keeping and wearing the bra as it is the best I have at the moment, the gore is very narrow, painful and a bit high for me.
This bra is not owned any more
