    What more can I say that hasn't already been said about Marcie? Basic balconnet, good for upper fullness, can also work for other shapes. I'm pretty even and Marcie works for me.

    This one is perfect for my larger side but too big for my smaller one. It's still wearable; the wire is just slightly annoying on that side. I'm getting a 28FF soon that will hopefully be better (with an extender).

    A minor thing I noticed that I haven't before is that the gore is either too high, too wide, or both. It soft-tacks and can sit painfully on breast tissue if I forget to push it back into the cups. I notice that if I press down on the gore, the cups appear fuller.

    The lace and the polka dots on the cups are cute but will show up under white shirts.

    The gore was too wide for me, and the cups were a bit too tall (and therefore I had emptiness in the top/ middle cups).

    I'm undecided about the gaping on top, but it is otherwise comfortable. I will write a full review once I decide.

    Bought from a bratabase user for $32 who wrote: "Worn twice and handwashed. Excellent condition."

    Hasn't set fit

    I bought this in 30FF and 30G and the 30G fits much better. My boobs quadboob in the 30FF. Again, the cups pull the band into being way too tight.

    I bought this before I found Polish bras, and it was the smallest band available locally. It's not projected enough for me, and I really need a 28 band. The wires come up too high under my arms, and the gore digs into my sternum. However, it's still a pretty bra, and I like wearing it when I don't want a lined/padded bra.

    This is my first unpadded bra. I was worried if the bp being seen on clothes, but it wasn't, which was very pleasing.

    The fabric is very smooth. The band is very tight at first but it stretches really well, so there was no problem putting it on. And the soft fabric of straps is also one thing that I love about this bra.

    It's been a couple of months wearing this bra. And it's too small now. Quadboob when I scoop-and-swoop. And the band is riding up in the back. But it's all because my size has been changed into 28H, I guess. Before, it fitted quite nice!

    The Marcie is my best-fitting and favorite everyday Cleo unlined bra... I absolutely love the high, perfectly round, ideal shape it gives without any extra padding... it seems to help make your waist look smaller and the general silhouette of your body somewhat slimmer from the front. All the aspects of good fit are there, and in addition, it's super comfortable and one of those bras you forget you're wearing. I have both the beige, a beautiful and practical toffee color, and the burgundy, which is more of an eggplant-wine shade with a color contrast bow.

    Update: After several wears, I have noticed that I do get slight in-cup quadding in both the beige and burgundy colorways. While not visible beneath clothes, it is something to note and a similar problem I've experienced with other Cleo bras like the Lily.

    • OMG that incup qudding drives me NUTS. I think its even more obvious in my size (or maybe my boobs are squishier). I feel like its visible through all clothing, just about. Do you see it through most clothing?

    • You'd think with enough people having problems with in cup quad in Marcie, Panache would take notice.

    • lcl0706 Right? It's definitely been a common issue with so many of the different colors and in so many sizes. They can't possibly be oblivious to it, can they? /sigh

      @dbmamaz Yeh, it's super annoying. I'm relieved it's a lot smoother with an extender because the quadding on the black one was so ridiculous that I thought I would have to sell it asap. That was the main one I had been trying to get my hands on, too.
      Luckily, I wear a lot of loose/oversized/flowey tops, so the only thing I usually worry about it color showing through. The quadding is a little visible under form fitting tops, but because the lace also tends to show through at that point, it kind of gets blended into the apparent mess going on under my shirt, lol. I mean, despite its problems, I wear Marcie the most out of all my bras, so as long as long as the in-cup quadding isn't extreme, it hasn't bothered me enough to avoid wearing them.

    • I think mine is worse. and the band is already too loose. I am tempted to try a J cup (my standard) but otoh, why? this is so bad its even visible clearly through a light blouse I tried to wear it with, and through a stretch fleece over a knit turtle neck! Maybe i should have sent it back to Panache and told them its substandard

    • Evadne it's so frustrating because I tried a 28FF in the nude, couldn't believe I got my hands on a nude one. Correct cup volume, gorgeous despite not working as a nude on me, and in-cup quad. Couldn't stand it. Had to sell. :(

    • esp frustrating because the marcie is such a great shape for so many people. I wonder if they DO know?

    Cleo's semi-sheer classic in bright raspberry with a polka-dotted little white bow on the center gore. The upper cups are made of non-elastic lace. Straps are fully adjustable and fairly wide set. The shape is pretty round and the bra not too covering.

    I ordered this size together with a 30F as I had a slight quadboob tendency on my purple 30F - Cleo » Marcie Balconnet Bra (6831). This proved unnecessary however as the 30F fits pretty well and I got some noticeable gaping on the upper lace in this bigger size.
