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."

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.

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.
