|Strap width||1.3 |
Rounded shape. Fits well my boobs, I'd say they are average fullness, not very FoB or FoT. Slightly wide wires, but not uncomfortably so.
Band is quite tight and hasn't stretched out much. Was ideal when I had 27.5in ribcage, now I've gained a bit more, and in the picture I'm wearing it with an extender.

I love Marcie bras! I have three of them! They give a nice rounded lifted shape with no padding. It's amazing. As I'm in between a 28f and 28ff, this bra ran a little small. When I have good posture, the top of the cup definitely cuts in, creating a quad boob. I also have some spillage on the sides.

It didn't jab me so badly or cup up very high in the armpits which was nice. However, I don't know if that just happened because it was a size or so too small? The strap width was acceptable as well (again, because it was a little small?). I don't know, but it is really pretty, and It maybe my boobs round which not all unlined bras do.

The wires are too wide, but the gore's refreshingly narrow, and it seems like it almost fits... except I get this weird bulging in the lace section of the bra. I think I might look for a size up, otherwise this might be the comfiest unlined bra I have.

Is currently brand new and tight - I currently need an extender. 30 band is too big and slips around though, so we'll see how it goes.
It fits my even boobs great.

I'm a projected, slightly full on top 28E/F. This bra is PERFECT for me. I love the color (I currently have aquamarine) and the fit is so great that I will probably be buying one in every colorway I can find.
I would not recommend this bra for shallow breasts or full on bottom. As it is an unpadded Cleo, I will say that it is consistent with others in that the band runs a little tight (which is fine for me since my underbust measures 26") so if you're in between bands then definitely size up.

I heard and read a lot of eulogistic reviews of Cleo Marcie. And as I'm quite compatible with other Cleo balconettes, I decided to try this style in a beautiful colourway, aquamarine. Some of my Cleo bras are a little loose in the band, so I went down to a 28F.
Marcie is made of a very soft material, much more softer than Meg, Bella or Melissa which is not necessarily beneficial for the support. The colour is a very intense turquoise-blue.
The band is really tight and some days I just can't wear it without an extender. If I'll ever try an another Marcie, it'll be definitely with a ... bigger band.
I have a doubt about the cup fit. It seems OK in the center, but something strange is happening under my armpits and in the middle of the cups. I have some extra material between the strap and the underwire (under the armpit) and if I shorten the straps it disappears but the cups wrinkle especially on the smaller side. I also find the underwires extremely wide particularly in the upper part which is “falling down”. They leave their marks about 1 cm behind the breast tissue.
My other issue is the in-cup quadraboob effect and I'm not sure if it means that the cup is too big or too small. I tried to make it disappear with an extender or by loosening the straps, but it didn't change a lot. I suppose it's due to the fact that the in-cup cut is lying just over a very soft skin around the nipples.
The last complaint is a hurtful center gore, my frequent problem. I think that it's due to the tight band and maybe because the cups are a little too big (wrinkling on the sides).
The shape Marcie gives is rather rounded and it keeps my boobs near the ribcage. The support is satisfactory.
In conclusion, I'm not fully satisfied with this bra. I'm maybe not compatible with this style. If I'll ever try to “tame” Marcie again, it'll be in 30DD.

I have a shallow, wide root, and 28F fits me better than the same size in Cleo Lucy, which was too closed on top. However, I still get a "George fold" at the top of the Marcie, suggesting it's still a bit too closed/too much projection for me.
The first day, the gore was so painful that not only did I have red marks still visible the next day, but also the flesh under the skin of my sternum was really tender and sore for almost 2 days. I bent the wires away at the gore, which helped a lot. I'm also wearing it with an extender for ... now.
This bra is not the ideal shape for me, but it's really cute and I got it for 20% off, so I decided to keep it so I'd have one bra in the right size, until I found something better.
EDIT: I found something better for my wide, shallow shape - the Masquerade Alice (30+ bands only) and the Betsey Johnson Eyelet Lace demi (also 30+ only), so I gave away my Lucy to a friend with a narrower root and more projection.

I love the look of this bra. It's gorgeous, I can fit out the bottom and the top, and it doesn't cut into the tops of my boobs.
Unfortunately, it's not perfect. I don't love the shape it gives me. From the front view, it contains the sides of my boobs most effectively on the bottom and less at the top. This makes me look like my boobs are very wide at the top and small on the bottom, with no curve at all. While the material is soft and generally comfortable against my skin, it is very uncomfortable on a hot, sweaty day. The gore comes up higher than I would like, causing the wires to dig into my sternum. The straps are a little too far apart. After extended wear, I noticed that the cups are digging into my armpits. When I take the bra off at the end of the day, it leaves red marks.

Band: tight comfortable
Straps: maybe not long enough, if that's ever a problem for you. it wasn't a problem for me but it was close to being a problem. i think it could be a good thing because if/when the straps lose their stretch, you can adjust it shorter. it is fully adjustable and also the texture is ridged so the adjusters won't slide around.
Material: nice and firm. beautiful color. the lace on the bottom side is polka-dotted but do not show through my thin camis. the lace on top is a beautiful cross-hatch + ribbon.
Shape: up front and round. also good for breasts that are close together because the gore is relatively narrow.
a very comfortable bra and it doesn't hurt that it's easy on the eyes (to say the least).
Problem: too small in the cup for me nowadays...
