Didn't fit

Well, this was my SECOND attempt at the Marcie, and my FOURTH attempt at Cleo....I think it's safe to say we will not be getting along. I'm so bummed, because I really wanted this bra to work. It's just so cute and feminine, and simple. It would make a perfect summer bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The fabric is so light and airy, and the colors are fun and girly.

I first tried the Marcie in a 28FF, def too small in the cups. The top lace part of the cups were digging in and causing some quad boob (they're not very forgiving and stretchy, but much more so than the Lucy). So I thought the Marcie might work better with my even shape. Sadly, it did not. I decided to try a 28G next thinking the cups would fit much better and the top of the cups would lay perfectly against my boobs without digging in. It's not AS bad as the 28FF, but still digging in some. If I scoop n swoop it's even worse. It looks great from the front, but from the side/angle its a hot mess. It's such a horrible shape mismatch. Even worse when I put on a shirt!! Like a pointed, quad boob, squished mess. Lol. I'm not really sure, but it's just not gonna work.

The wires are def wider than I expected for being only one cup size up and came too far out under my arm. The gore digs into my sternum and the height is just too tall for my comfort. The straps don't seem to be placed right for my shape, too far apart. And the whole bra in general was just very uncomfortable to wear, and even put on. I had a heck of a time trying to loosen the straps and could barely get them to budge. It was way too difficult to adjust and actually hurt my hand.

I was thinking maybe if I tried a 28GG, or even a 30G I might get this to work, but I'd rather just concede at this point. It's just not gonna happen, Cleo and I are not meant to be https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
