This is a very great bra!
I bought the Lucy on a guilty whim, because the yellow color looked so fanciful and I have long lusted for an unpadded bra to fit me. Surprisingly, the Lucy pretty much does!
This bra has fully adjustable straps, a great selection of colors, is a continuity design from Cleo, offers great lift and support, and is generally a good bra. It's given me the most up-and-front shape I've ever gotten, which is not an easy task on wide-set, wide-rooted breasts. I feel really secure in this bra, and while it's not very cleavage-y, it handily trumps the shape provided by most cleavage-inducing bras. ...
There are definitely some shortcomings, as with any bra. It's a 3-part seamed cup, which I've decided my breast shape has some issues with. Specifically, the top section does tend to bunch up a bit, because I've found that these cups are rapidly closing. My breasts don't end low enough for them, so the top of the lace will lie flat along my chest, while the fabric just below the edge makes a fabric bubble. This has not been an issue under clothing, and I've even worn this bra under very tight, very thin jersey tops. But it is a bit of a bummer as far as shirtless appearances go - I really wish I could get that 'painted on' look that larger busted ladies seem to find!
In the end, this is a bra to try - it's really beautiful, fun, and comfy! It's made for wider-set and wide breasts, and should do fine on multiple fullness levels. It will probably cause trouble on very close-set breasts and full-on-top breasts. If you fall into the 'wide' category, though, try this bra!

This bra is really, really cute and lacy, something that's hard to find in this size. It's hard to find unlined, unpadded bras - everything in small sizes seems to be push-up and padded. Those are fine, but sometimes I just want something sheer and lacy.
Now, first of all, the band and underwire fit perfectly. The band is just right for me, possibly a little bit loose, but not so much that it doesn't fit. I really appreciate that this bra runs wide in the wire - it comes up much further under my arms than a lot of bras, which makes it great ... for gathering up "extra" boob. And I am wide-set, so really, I need these wide underwires. This is great.
I fill out the bottom of the cup really well, but the top wrinkles very, very slightly on my left (bigger) boob, and more noticeably on my right (smaller) boob. If I push all the boob in carefully, I can fill the top of the cup on my left. But no amount of pushing and prodding can fill the top on the right.
It isn't that visible under clothing, so it's something I'll live with to have such a cute, lacy, comfortable bra with nice wide underwires that doesn't poke into my sides and sternum. The gore tacks perfectly on me.
It doesn't give any cleavage - it gives a very natural look, with a good amount of support. Nipples can show through if they aren't perfectly placed on the seam. But it is what it is, very cute and feminine. It's not going to be my everyday bra (I wish it could be!), but definitely a nice bra for those times when I want to feel pretty under my clothes and just want a natural appearance outside, without a bunch of pushup and padding.

Got this from a swap with mercury! Thank you!
I'm not usually one for bright colors, but the vibrant purple and splash of pink are really cute. The mesh is weirdly soft! I noticed that it completely lacks side boning, which feels a little weird and sad, but I don't think it affects fit in my case.
The fit is eh-more-or-less-okay. The wires are a smidge wide and the wings are lower than I'd like, and there's a hint of extra space up top, but it's comfy and supportive and the wrinkles dont show under clothes so I don't mind the mild wrinkling at all. The band is nicely snug around my currently 26" or so ribcage even though the numbers say that it stretches all the way to nearly 31", probably thanks to the type of elastic or something.

When I first tried Lucy, I purchased 28D and 30D as my preferred size of 28DD wasn't available. I originally decided that 30D was a good fit, but after trying and fitting dozens more bras, I realized that I don't really love the fit as much as I thought.
Visually, Lucy's cups tend to look shorter and smaller than other balconnet bras (look at photos from other users of this size and you'll see what I mean), and the fullest point is lower in the cup and more projected than what I am used to. Because of this, I really fill out the bottom of the cup, ... but the top embroidered panel ends up being a little empty. This is fine on my larger side, but creates quite a bit of gapping on my smaller side when I move. I also feel that the main cup doesn't feel as supportive as I'd like, so I thought I would try sizing up to 30DD, with 28D being far too small for me.
28D in this style was actually not too bad, although it looked like it would not work. I think this is due to the wires having enough give to open a bit instead of dig into the body, so the cups actually become a little bigger on me when the bra is worn. The soft mesh cups are also very nice and didn't cut into me and give me any overflow like a more rigid fabric would have done. Styling-wise, I like the fabric and embroidery on Lucy. Both are very comfortable for everyday wear and feel very similar to Marcie.
Ultimately, I think Lucy's proportions aren't quite built for me. After initially not being a fan of Marcie, I feel that Marcie fits me better than Lucy after a minor wire reshaping. This seems odd as I was told Lucy is for FOB and Marcie for FOT, and I feel that I lean FOB, shallow on top. Good thing there are so many options in the world of bras to choose from!

I swapped my Deco for this, hoping a 28D Lucy would be a better fit than the 28DD Lucy, maybe even as good a fit as 28D Marcie. It came new with tag, never worn and is definitely a better fit than the Deco was, so I got a good deal in that regard.
The band fits tightly, which I'm very happy about. The cups are a good fit too, but (predictably) not as perfect as Marcie. They wrinkle a bit along the horizontal seam [Edit: when not scooped fully] and I get the slightest bit of quad on my right boob. I'd say it's a bit too closed on top for me. Runs true to size and full on bottom.
I love the purple colour. This bra is close enough to fitting and comfortable enough to be a keeper.
The quadding is less severe when worn with extender. Bras, how do they work?

I think this bra is really beautiful. It's my first attempt at wearing a soft cup bra, and it's very comfortable. I don't know if I would consider it to be high quality, but it's sufficient. The shape is rather off for me, and I'm not entirely sure why yet (about to post a fitting help request!), but I so wish it weren't. Lovely -- if it fits well.

i wear a 28D and am moderately shallow, slightly conical, and slightly wide. i am average set and even.
(because of my slightly conical shape and prominent nipples, i generally steer away from unlined bras. but lucy was available on prime, and i figured that trying an unlined bra for fun would tell me some things about my shape that a molded bra would hide.)
well the bra is lovely and comfortable. i can see why people enjoy unlined bras. and the seams could hide my nipples too. the only problem... was that there were wrinkles everywhere. especially at the top, but at the bottom as well. i already knew that i was shallow and conical, so i didn't learn anything new. now i just have definite proof.

Man, I was really sure this one would fit. Instead, it has wrinkling in the bottom outside of the cups, and emptiness in the top inside. r/abrathatfits concludes that this is because of shape incompatibility.

This bra is very beautiful! Unfortunately the wires are digging in my breast tissue under my arms and the cups wrinkle a little bit. I think it's not the right shape for my breasts.
