The shape I get from the Cleo Marcie is wonderfully rounded, front and side. Its reputation is well earned, I feel. This colorway is clear and vibrant. It reminds me of ads for Caribbean beaches with their incredible turquoise and blue water. That is, in fact, a big part of why I bought this.

I wear a 30F in most bras, but in the turquoise Cleo Marcie, I wear a 30FF. The sides are high enough only if I go up a cup size because Cleos in general, and certainly the Marcie in particular, have somewhat low sides. For someone like me, with ample fullness on the sides, higher wires on the sides prevent bulging under my arms. The problem is exacerbated by the firmness of my tissue, which is not easily corraled.

Though I have a lot of side fullness, there is only about 1/8" between my breasts. I haven't worn a center gore higher than 1.5" in months. Occasionally I wear a bra with a 2" gore, which is considered low, but that is suboptimal. I haven't actually worn the gorgeous turquoise Cleo Marcie out of the house, which is a shame.

I know lots of women with different types of fitting issues find success with the Marcie. My main issues arise from having lots of firm, full tissue on the sides. In terms of full on top versus full on bottom, in a bra my boobs behave full on top. Out of a bra, they look even to full on top. My root is medium wide. The Cleo Marcie is wide enough for me. I wish they would come out with a Cleo Marcie with a 1.5" gore, in the red, turquoise, purple colors they've already used.
