      And it fits you great and looks pretty! It's such an awesome feeling isn't it? I am 48 and it took me until 47 to get the right size bra. Now I can't get enough...LOL

      I just had to say THANK YOU for your review of the Marcie! It's a beautiful bra and I so wanted to try it, but after also reading on your blog about your shape.... I am very glad I didn't spend the money. We are basically opposites :(

      Anyhow thanks again for your awesome reviews! I plan to check out more of them to see if I can find anything that did NOT work for you lol

    • LOL well if you ever want to see other Marcie reviews, I have had approximately 30,000 Marcies! If you need some bras that I will tell you did NOT work for me, I would definitely suggest checking out the Claudette Dessous, which I want so badly but just never works on my shape!

    Marcie was one of my best fitting bras when I was a 28DD/30D size, and I wore it all last summer. It was absolutely perfect for the hot weather! However, since my cup size gain, I decided to size up to the 28E. I had tried 28E once in the past when I was the smaller size since 28DD wasn't available, but it was way too big. Now, it fits me quite well, and even runs snug.

    I ended up picking up two more discontinued colors via eBay, but unfortunately I waited too long on the Dusty Rose and the 28E was sold out, so I decided to try ... the sister size of 30DD. I was hesitant about the 30DD because I originally felt that the 30D Marcie wasn't super secure (when that was my size), which I attributed to the band. However, the 30DD feels pretty good, although the band is 4 cm/1.5" longer. I'm not sure why this works for me now, but I'm glad it does. It feels identical to the 28E for me, but obviously the band is not as tight. I think this is a good option for me when I don't want a bra band that's super snug for comfort reasons.

    The cups measure identically between the 28E and 30DD, so this is a good example of where cups are not graded with the band (at least in this size range) and you can safely sister size without the cups changing proportions. Some of my Marcies are a little deeper in the cup than others, and this is one of the slightly deeper ones, but it basically fits the same.

    The only thing I don't love about this bra is the color. The Dusty Rose is a deeper, rosier pink mauve than I had expected. I thought it would be a softer, lighter rose pink. I also don't understand the use of taupe grey trims and hardware, as it just looks weird. A nicer pop of color would've been pale lavender, sky blue, or soft buttercup. Given that I also didn't like the color combination of the Olive/Coral that I ordered at the same time, the same designer was probably responsible for both color choices.

    Note that this is for the older version, with no printed text on the underwires.

    If you're still trying to get your hands on Marcie before she's totally gone, give the sister sizes a try. The firm bands should work if you have to size up, and you can always add an extender if you need to go one size down.

    Quadboob, loose band, not tall enough for roots. This is just not my size.

    This bra feels simultaneously too big and too small. When I first put it on, it fits okay on my smaller boob, but has gaping at the top of my larger boob. After a few minutes, the whole thing starts sliding down and then it gaps on both sides. To keep it in my imf, I have to yank it up high enough that the wings are in my armpit and the side is pushing hard into my tail of spence.

    Even if the size is the good one, it hurts me a little. I also have the cleo Lucy in the same size and it is very comfortable ! So i can't understand why it hurts.

    • Where does it hurt exactly?
      It is helpful to be more specific (:

      My own Marcie hurt at the center gore - because it was a bit too high and wide, digging in to my sternum. I used pliers to (carefully) bend the gore outwards a little. Made it much more comfortable. Hope this may help for you as well!

    • The pink Marcie runs tight, as it's one of the older colorways and Cleo used to make their bands tighter back then.
      Try using a non-stretchy extender until the band is broken in a little.

    • Thank you for the informations ! :) Now i understand. I feared that the size was not good. Yes it hurts at the center gore it's exactly the point.
      Thanks for the solutions. i will try pliers and buy an extender. :)

    • bracrastination is it just the band that runs small or the cups as well on the pink Marcie?

    • Cups as well Prettyncharmeuse

    This gave me hope that I am one step closer to finding ABTF. Unfortunately, this was not the one.

    bottom half is great. Top lace is a bit looser and the wrinkles run side to side. Meaning too closed on top? idk

    The spot where the straps meet the cup pushes my tail of spence a bit. Can get pokey.

    Fun pink/orange colorway, but the wrong shape for me -- seems to be made for full-on-top girls, and mine are full-on-the-bottom. Other than that, great fit, with that nice gentle lift-to-center that Cleos always give me.
