    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!

    Magenta/Orange colorway

    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.

    I bought this in Bravissimo's exclusive colourway (cobalt blue), and I feel like the fit is consistent with other colourways. Same uplifted, rounded shape. Good for my FoT boobs. Wires don't poke on me. It is comfortable to wear the whole day. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    30F/FF, FoT, tall and narrow root

    This bra is awesome. It really helped me figure out that I am definitely full on top. This gives my breasts a wonderful lifted and rounded shape that I never thought possible in an unlined bra. The cup is slightly too large and the wires slightly too wide. The band is a teensy bit too tight but is fine with part of an extender.

    However, I hate pink. There's also yellow and bright blue. I seriously cannot wait until the beige and black versions I've heard about come out. I like elegant and sexy styles as opposed to the fun brights and prints this brand is notorious for.

    I bought this in the color raspberry. The bra has for me a good projection, as I do need deep cups. Altough I do have a little wrinkling at the top since I'm more FoB, but below a shirt it is not noticeable.

    I wear this Marcie a lot more than my 28G - Cleo » Marcie (6831) because it is more comfortable.

    At the end of the day I don't feel like taking it off, usually when I wear 28G I feel it gets too tight after all my daily eating.

    The main difference to my 28G is only the comfort of the band, the cups are pretty much the same for me in both cases.

    This is one of my traveling bras because it is so comfortable that I can sleep in it.

    I think that this bra is so good on me and so comfortable that it is hard to say much more than that. Wearing this bra I can forget about boobs that makes the bra subject uneventful https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
