Oh Marcie, what has happened to you, we used to be such good friends, but now you're just awkward and odd when we meet.

Where do I start with this bra??? ( in the beige colour way)
Wires are good, the right width and height for me, but my last Marcie had crossed wires giving an amazingly narrow gore which seems sadly to no longer be the case.
Band - to me seems not quite as tight as other new 32's but definately firm enough.
Straps as before nice non scratchy material next to the skin, seamed part way along for some reason but this doesn't stop the adjuster.
Cup/shape well this is where the issues start, I don't know why, I prev had a pink Marcie which I loved in 32H but I am now smaller, 32GG is the right size, but the pull of the strap continues straight down to the wire, this would be fine if it included the side bit of the wire but it doesn't so there is a strange dent sort of in front of where the side sling would be if there was one with breast tissue bulging both in front of and behind the pull. The seam between the balconette and the lace top is too closed in so again there is a dent and bulging either side, and as my nipples is to the outside of my apex ( centre full) this gives a very square look to the front of the bra. Add to this some excess fabric at the upper outer cup and I think I will stick with my Minnie / Erin. Sadly Beige Marcie is not for me right now

    Oh, dear, thats really too bad. I was so hoping that the construction of the beige and black would be better than the raspberry. I do see that pull you are talking about, but on me its not nearly as bad as the dent where the lace and cup are seamed.

    I read somewhere that there was a recall for some of the beige and black Marcies. I can't look it up right now, but you might find some info somewhere online.

  • It was on a comment here, but i just googled and didnt find anything

  • Gosh, the bras only arrived with me 2 days ago!
    Thank you for that I am not on twitter so would not have seen it but was going to return the bra anyway.

  • So I just checked the Bravissimo website and Marcie is no longer available in Beige or Black!

  • Haha I dont do twitter either. They havent been on amazon either. Sucks for them, though. that sounds like a lot of wasted stock - and they probably dont want to let it go cheap because it'll lower the opinion of their brand

  • oh I hope they can sort it out and don't just give up on it.For now though, Minnie is my favourite bra!

    For quicker reference to other users, you could update your bra and indicate that this one was a beige one :)

    yes, actually, this review inspired me to go figure out how to add color to bras - go to your bra and click "Edit" and under "Additional Information" there's a place for it.

  • I think I have just done that Jj, please tell me if it didn't work, I am not very technically minded!

    Yes, I can see it!

  • Thank you for finding it, Hootymyboobs ! I remembered ProperlyFitted was involved in some way, but I didn't have time to look for it earlier.

  • BumbleBean Hootymyboobs Haha yes...I'm the worst. I meant to comment that on here too :)

  • ProperlyFitted No way you're the worst! I thought it was awesome that you spoke up and got answers for the people! :)
