This bra was a gamble. I normally wear a 30 band but this 32 seems to fit fine. I wear it on the middle set of hooks and it is decently tight enough, though not as tight as my 30 bras. I think I'm forgetting how sister sizing up works, but I think this 32E size is equivalent to a 30F band? The cup fits great. I wasn't sure if it would work because I keep reading everywhere that Marcie is for upper fullness and I identify more with having even fullness. But it seems to work for me so I'm not sure what's going on exactly. I haven't come across a Cleo unlined bra that hasn't worked for me (in the correct size, anyway.)

  • Cleo bands tend to run tight. You are correct 32E is the sister size of 30F. Do you identify as having even fullness when you're wearing a bra or when you're not wearing a bra? The fullness thing is based on how your breasts tend to look in a bra. Paradoxically, it's something you tend to learn after you find bras that fit pretty well.

  • I always thought fullness was based on how your breasts look while leaning 90 degrees at the waist while bra less. My nipples point towards the ground while doing this so I've read that means even fullness. At least that's what the Reddit community explains.

    Yes, leaning parallel to the ground can give some information about fullness on top vs. on bottom. I believe in our size range it tends to be less useful than for those in the 30H range. The blogger at came up with the idea, and she was in the 30H range at the time. The blogger is an extreme FoT shape, and her best friend is apparently an extreme FoB. The 90 degree leaning over test is more useful for those at the extreme end of FoT or FoB.

    The more subtle manifestations of FoT or FoB appear when boobs are in bras. If Cleo Marcie works well for you, then you may be even, or perhaps you underestimated your upper fullness. Does the Cleo Lucy's cups work well for you, too? As you probably already know, Lucy will work for FoB breasts that don't find a good fit in Marcie. If both Marcie and Lucy work well for you, you probably have even fullness.
