    This is a great bra! I should have ordered a 30DD, but I'll use the 30D when I want a "push-up" bra! This is quite uplifting and flattering. It gives me a rounded, soft, "perky" shape that looks great under tight t-shirts. The uplift effect works beautifully under low-cut shirts. I find this to be very similar to my Cleo Lucy, however, I can't make an accurate comparison between the two bras because my Lucy is a 30DD. While the 30DD does fit better, technically, there are times when with push-up style I get with the 30D Marcie is just what I need to look and feel good without padding or bulky contour cups. One strange thing in my Marcie is that the underwires try to twist on top of each other at my sternum, and they poke me painfully when they do this. Hopefully the bra just needs to be broken in. Overall, Cleo's unlined bras are exactly what I've been searching for my whole life for unlined bras. Truly remarkable.

    Used to fit

    I love this bra. Took a bit of a risk ordering it from an eBay seller who doesn't take stuff back, but needn't have worried - it's a perfect fit and feels just right in every way. I didn't even get typical "George-wrinkles" with the Marcie (wrinkles in the thinner material in the upper part of the cups that a lot of people with wide root shallow boobs get in Cleo Georges and similar styles).
    I had read that the band runs very tight but I didn't find this to be true compared to other unpadded Cleos - so far I've only tried it on, though, so I can't say if the band would feel uncomfortable if I wore the bra for a longer time.
    (All this refers to the original, red Marcie.)

    I got this from another bratabase user and it fits so well compared to my other bras! The band is slightly too loose on the loosest hook which I attribute to previous wear. Cup on my smaller slide has minor wrinkling but appears fine under fabric. I may try to take it in along the seam between the bottom fabric and the lace to make it a smidge shallower. On me this fits much better than the b.tempted Ciao Bella Balconette in 30DD (too much space in the belly of the cup, caused wrinkling in the lace overlay) or the b.tempted b.sultry balconette in 30D (closes too quickly at the top and exaggerates my underarm tissue) or 30DD (too much space in the belly of the cup and still closes too quickly for my underarm fat). Very excited and hoping to find more bras with a similar fit in the future!

    • The 'belly' of the cup is probably what we call the apex? Is that the raspberry color? Thats the one I had - it was a particularly stretchy one

    • Yes, the apex! I was searching for the right word and it wouldn't come to me . Oh, it is the raspberry color! Good to know that I shouldn't size down if I revisit this in another color, thanks!

    • Gorgeous color on you!

    • Beautiful! Such a lovely color. Glad it fits so well!
      Totally jealous, lol, wish I could find in my size (28D/30C)!!!!

    I rarely get unlined bras -- I much prefer the shape and tiny amount of added bulk I get from molded/padded styles, haha -- but this has somehow become one of my favorite bras. It's gorgeous and fits me very well, giving a nice rounded shape. The cups are a tiny bit too small, but I got a great deal on this one and I'm too afraid to let it go for a swap! I'm just looking forward to trying the 28E/30DD when the yellow Marcie comes out. :) Also, the center gore dug into my sternum at first, but I bent the wires a little and now it's no problem.

    This bra is gorgeous. The details are impressive and so cute. The bow, the button, the lace, the polkadots. I love the look of it and hope that I can get a good fit in it.

    As it is the band is quite firm and I can probably stick with this size 30 though I am curious how well a 28 would fit. The center gore lies flat which is super great.

    The cups, well they are way too small. I am hoping to be able to work it out though.

    It fits very well for my after breast feeding boobs. I have the most volume under my nipples and soft tissue. I need middle wide hanger and cups which are not too deep. The marcie gives me a round forward and upliftet shape. I have a great cleavage with this bra.

    Of the unlined bras I own I find this one the most comfortable. Probably because it has a band under the wire in contrast with the Lucy and Kali.
    This one is also a tiny bit to narrow on my slightly bigger breast.
    The bra gives a nice shape uplifted round shape.

    Marcie's nude colorway was pretth much the closest I've been to a nude in my skin color, which was nice. The fit not so much. Through the middle it wrinkles tightly and gapes a bit along the top.
