    I bought this bra for two main reasons: I needed a bra that fit (duh!) and I LOVE the color.
    It looks great on and the slightly blue-ish red suits me very well.

    I first tried Marcie in a 28H but the cup was definitely too small and caused quad-boobs.
    The 28HH is much better even though I have teensy little bit of gaping at the top and the wires are a little wide. It isn't very noticeable and doesn't bother me, I just wanted to mention it because of sizing: My shape is rather balanced but for those with more bottom-heavy breasts I suggest you try a smaller size, too. ... I think the cup is rather open at the top.

    The underwires don't come up too high and don't poke me in the armpits (I'm short and this happens a lot to me). The centre gore is okay, I really prefer lower centre gores because of my close-set breasts but it is completely wearable. The wires are comfortable enough given that they are not very padded. What I do to make underwires more comfortable is that I bend them to suit my body shape better. I can easily wear this bra the whole day without discomfort.
    Concerning the band, there are both pros and cons. It is a typical Cleo band, which means it has only two rows of hooks and eyes.
    Seriously, in a HH?! Bad Cleo! A 3 hook-and-eye band would not only be much more comfortable and supporting but also look better because it would cut in less. Still, the band is tight enough for my 27.5 inches back. I've worn this bra for a few months now and I can still use the loosest setting.

    The straps are fully adjustable (yay!) but the embroidery on the straps make it a little hard to adjust them.
    Marcie gives a great round shape and a lot of lift from the root of the breasts.
    In terms of shape, I think Cleo makes the best unpadded bras on the market.

    I experienced some weird quadraboob IN the cup but that has thankfully disappeared with wear.
    The seams and embroidery of the cup aren't very noticeable under clothes, even wearing tight t-shirts works for me.

    Even though it may sound like I'm just ranting about the Marcie, I actually love her and I'm even thinking of getting another one.
    There is room for improvement but that is mostly the underband.
    I would recommend her to anyone looking for a really beautiful bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    This a very lovely bra - pretty style, colour and shape. However, the wires just run too wide for me and, in my size (28HH/J), this is common occurrence due to pattern grading. The wires ran quite far behind my armpit and therefore left creasing under the cup, leaving me unsupported. Somehow, despite measuring as a true 28inch, the Marcie bra band has expanded to 30inch in just a few months so it is now worn on the tightest clasp. Not sure why this happened.

    I would say that this bra runs true in the cup and band. I fitted the cups well as I am quite balanced in ... breast shapes, although I need a good 'swoop and scoop' to get into this bra. The Marcie probably not suitable for a "full on the bottom" breast types either. Also, if suit plunges because you have a lot of breast tissue near the gore, I would not recommended this to you either. Despite keeping and wearing the bra as it is the best I have at the moment, the gore is very narrow, painful and a bit high for me.

    I really want this bra to work for me, but it's just not a good fit. I'll probably keep it and wear it anyway. The band is pretty good for me, not as tight as it could be but comfortable. The gore is too wide and the wires are way too wide for me. I love the color, the polka dots, the bra all around. But it's just not one for me.
    Color is a pretty aquamarine, bright and pretty. I love the straps. I like the two hooks over three.
