I just love this set! It's sooo pretty! the pictures don't give this bra justice! the colour is so gorgeous! And the ruffles on the panty! stunning!! The bra is great and comfortable, but I think I will try a marcie in a size down, as the wires are too wide and I think it would bring my boobs a tad more centred in a 28F. The top is acually not completely flat, but you don't see this under clothing!
I did get this stunning set through an exchange from another user and I love it! Thank you so much!!
The band on this bra runs tight and doesn't appear that it will stretch quickly....currently waiting for the extenders I ordered. I can wear it this way but the cups are distorting because the band is too tight for me and the underwires dig so bad they leave bruises.
Cup shape is very open on the top, I can't get it to dig in no matter what position I try. Probably the cutest bra in my drawer at the moment. It's a true red, not orangey. Mine did need some stretching on the diagonal seam as it cut in slightly but it did ...not show under shirts and was very minor. The gore is quite narrow. Overall it fits very well. I slip some comfy cups/no peek pads in and no worries about nipple show through. Seams definately show in most of my summer shirts which I don't particularly care for...but it's pretty enough that I wear it anyway. Quality wise...there were some loose threads but nothing that looks like it's going to fall apart. It gives a very rounded, uplifted, up front shape and is more supportive than Lucy....I can jog in this one with minimal jiggle.
Edited: The extenders arrived and what a difference! The underwires no longer bruise my ribs and the cups fit perfectly with no wrinkling. I needed two positions looser than the loosest hook at first and now just one. This bra is getting a lot of wear! I don't think I would go up a band size personally, just because it will last longer this way. I think this is one bra I will actually end up buying in more colors...especially the aqua that's supposed to be coming up!! Read more 194 more words
Hey, I found a Marcie that works for me! Thankfully, no in cup quadding in this colorway. I hear that problem has been fixed with the new run of the nude ones, but the white dots on the nude colorway make it useless for me as a nude so I'm not interested in finding out first hand. Regardless, this is pretty good on me despite being recommended for FOT/tall roots, of which I'm neither. The cups do gape a little bit. Nice projection at the wire. This particular color has an extremely tight band. Not sure if that's true for all the yellow ones or if it's just mine, but I need an extender at first. BTB even asked me to verify the stretched band measurement since it's only 26.5! Full review on the blog.
The second Marcie of my collection, now in 28FF, as I've heard the "nude" colorway tended to be smaller in the cups than the other versions. It turned out, nevertheless, to be quite deep anyway, but my even boobs worked that out!
I had wanted to try the Marcie after reading about it so much, and when I saw the images of the AW15 burgundy colorway, I knew I needed it! Burgundy is pretty much my favorite color, but I didn’t yet have such colored bra. In natural lighting, it seems more like a dark purple to me, but it’s beautiful anyway. I also love the cute and unique lace pattern. Lookswise, it’s a killer! Also, the shape is amazingly rounded for an unlined bra. I rarely actually wear unpadded bras because a) I’m shy about nipples and b) the shape I get is often a bit droopy. Marcie might ...get much more use, if it wasn’t for the comfort issues. The band seemed perfectly tight enough, but now I just realized that it had ridden up a bit after a long day (then again I’m 26"). Wires are quite wide, and for me there is about 1 cm extra space towards the armpits. For me the wires don’t really cause much discomfort at the sides, but they do press into my ribs under the bust. There is something very strange happening with the center gore: it sort of tacks (or one wire does), but it is constantly twisted towards the other breast. I guess this is because of my close-set breasts; I often have problems with high gores. At least this way the wires don’t completely sit on my breast tissue (as in Cleo Juna), but the gore is still uncomfortable and digs into my sternum too hard. There is also some wrinkling/gaping in the left cup, towards which the gore is turned (which is my bigger breast actually). The right cup seems to fit fine. I have some fullness at the top, and this is the only unpadded bra I have tried that doesn’t close in at the top too much. I think that Marcie might fit me be better in 28F since the gore would be lower, wires narrower, and the open cups would still probably still accommodate me. However, I’m starting to think I’ll just have to give up on Cleo balconettes, as lovely as they are otherwise – I just cannot deal with the wires. Read more 264 more words
These cups are unfortunately too wide on me to be comfortable. These cups hate my armpits and my armpits hate them. It's a shame because the 32E Marcie is much nicer to my armpits, but the band is way too stretched out now.
I love this bra, Marcie is my best fitting bra. I feel the yellow may be a little less stretchy than the purple but for me it's comfortable it doesn't dig in.
It's a personal problem of mine but I wish I could find bras almost exactly the same as the Marcie [unlined and lined] but with a little bit of a higher gore [i have quite a bit of center fullness, the straps slightly closer [I'm petite with broad shoulders] and I wish the wires went a little higher under my arms.
