    This one is really quite awesome! It has a stretchier band then Marcie in the same size. Could be the color of Marcie (I have it in Tangerine which seems snug) Hettie gives a me a nice rounded shape but not as lifted as Marcie. Could be due to the stretch lace on top too?!? Also I held them up to each other the wires seem to be identical except the cup space in Hettie is slightly more. I really think it’s super comfortable I seem to have problems with bras staying put at my IMF. It’s painful when they slide because the wires dig into my ribs, This has not given me any pain and has stayed put. I’m curious if I tried another size if it would be better or worse? But for now I’m holding onto this unless I find a better match! My adventure continues but I’m glad I have a keeper.

      So glad this works for you! Several others users have been thrilled with Hettie, too.

      BrookieG30G, Hettie looks fabulous on you! Such a beautiful bra. If it's comfortable and stays in your IMF as well, I agree you should keep it!

    MY SHAPE: projected, even top/bottom, center full, tall roots, narrow roots.

    THE TAKEAWAY: A compromise between the Cleo Marcie Balconnet Bra (6831) and the Panache Jasmine Balconnet Bra (6951)... or, Marcie on bottom, Jasmine on top, with a lovely soft lining on the inside of the bottom half of the cup as a bonus. Good projection, handles my center-fullness well. Band is TTS, stretching to ~30". Fits like a typical Cleo G cup, but a bit more forgiving than usual because of the stretch lace. If you liked the Marcie but found it too closed on top, this might be the perfect fit for ... you.

    DETAILS: There's really nothing about this bra that doesn't fit. But for my extremely nitpicky preferences, it doesn't make the cut. Both Marcie and Hettie lack the active side support sling of the Jasmine (which is good, for my center-full tissue), but they're also both two-part balconnets, with just a single vertical seam on the bottom half of the cup, and that flattens me out on the sides, creating a distinctly odd top-down view. (Which, yes, nobody but me is ever going to see. So I'll dither over this bra for a few days.)

    Still. Projected? Yes. Center fullness? It's handling it. Typically high gore and hard tack, but I've never minded that about Cleo/Panache. And I like the shape it gives me better than the shape the Jasmine does... it's just a question of whether I like it enough better to buy a new bra in this shape!

    Also, while it feels a little bit small right now, I've currently got a case of Period Boobs, so I expect this is actually a really good fit.

      Great review! I love your comparisons between this and the Marcie and Jasmine, and your comments on how it works for specific shape features like center fullness. And it looks lovely! The black and "pink" (would you call it a deep red? burgundy? violet? it really is pink and I'm colorblind?) really looks great against your skin tone.

    • chirality I'm blushing, thank you! :) I nicked the format from 100percentawesome because it's so darned helpful, I find it really easy to focus on a bra and give the lowdown. I've only recently really nailed down my shape, but the more bras I try on the more my need for projection and room at the gore for my center-full tissue becomes clear (I'm so even in terms of top and bottom that I was bewildered to try from a different angle and find that I'm SUPER center-full, lol).

      The LABEL calls it pink, so I put that down, but the effect of being under black lace makes the bra look very burgundy. It's probably 5% my lighting, but I think the Amazon photos look very similar in terms of color:

    • I know you've got a few nitpicky fit issues, but I have to say that this looks great on you! I know "Marcie basketballs" are a thing but you've got a super round shape in this - top down, it might be flattening you out on the sides, but it's honestly not visible at all in the photos :)

    • 100percentawesome It's definitely growing on me, sort of the opposite of what the fit of the 70H - Gaia » Annika Soft (553) did... which is such a bummer, since I ordered that one on eBay, and it's going to be a bigger pain to return! Haha.

    About me: 30FF/G but can comfortably wear 32F/FF. Usually, 30G is my go to. Very projected and close set with short, narrow roots and even fullness (also center full).

    When I tried the Kayla, I thought that that it was the best thing ever. But this puts Kayla to shame! The bottom of Hettie is firmer than Kayla, so it does a better job of holding my (very soft) tissue in place. I also had some slight folding of the top lace in Kayla, but with Hettie the lace lays smoothly against my body. Hettie also has lower gores than Kayla, so it feels more comfortable for my short roots. The straps and gore are both a little wide for me, but that's just part of being close set and having narrow shoulders. I really do love this bra and how comfortable it is.

    I think that the shape of this bra is nice, but I would prefer if it was slightly rounder. The color is fine and it seems to be well-constructed.

    Deep, even cups, with nice accommodation for top-fullness in the stretch lace.

    This is oddly a better fit than the 32FF I tried in the blue colorway, even though the cup volume should be the same. I'm not sure if that's due to the size or the colorway. This is a pretty perfect fit for me, I just can't grow another ounce of cup volume. If I get another, I'll get it in the next cup volume up (although I've heard that in GG+ the stretch lace is less forgiving).
