|Strap width||1.8 |
This was my first attempt at getting a proper size/shape, and I got two cup sizes (this was the larger cup--notes 30GG had 0.75" between the hooks/slightly wider band in back and only partially adjustable straps, 30G had 0.5" between hooks and fully adjustable straps).
I think this bra is best for those with breasts that are more in front/have more fullness towards the front (more even upper fullness), or that are willing to be guided that way. Lift/support was great.
My dense, splayed breasts get flattened on the sides of the cup, and I get some sort of weird in-cup cutting in on the sides (*below* where the ... lace starts), and then there's a bit of gaping toward the center since I'm more wide-set. The latter would be acceptable, but even letting the straps out all the way didn't give enough room to relieve the squashed in sides, and so I didn't get the typical Marcie-shape. Wires may also be slightly too narrow for me.
I might come back to this later if I have trouble finding a fit, as it looks like with a dart between the straps and the wires all the wrinkling/cutting in/squashed sides might go away--even the lace lays flat, even by the gore! Ie, it's possible the straps need to be further toward the sides to work for me. For now, I think I'm going to try Cleo Lucy/Kali and hope it will give the same lift/support/shape without trying to direct everything so far forward (and hope the issue I had with Marcie isn't something common in the construction between the two).

Having some issues with this bra, it is still a relatively good fit.
I like the girly color, cute style and felted shoulder straps. Don't wear it a lot because it's not ideal on me.
While Marcie is quite FOT friendly, I still have a bit of bulge on top, almost quadding. Perhaps I should go up a size.
Also the center gore pokes a bit - would prefer a lower gore. Bending the wires helped somewhat.
The straps are a bit too wide set, but don't chafe too much.
However my biggest problem is the band - when I first bought this bra it was a well fitting 30 band. After wearing it a handful of times, the band has stretched a LOT and now (after +6 months and only occasionally wearing it, maybe twice a month?) I'm down to the tightest hook. Seems strange as I normally don't experience much stretch in my bra bands. Always wash them by hand (:

I no longer own this particular bra but I own another one in the same size and color which I have reviewed.

This is the second time I've owned the pink Marcie in this size. It has always been one of the two bras I could count on to "fit" but was never comfortable for very long. That still holds true... for the most part.
This time around, I'm coming back to it after losing some weight. Combining that with general variance in bras, it doesn't fit as well as my last one did. The cups gape a bit at the top, which hadn't been an issue before. The band is a tad tighter than I would like, but that will change with wear. One thing that hasn't changed is the discomfort the wires can cause under the arms. I wish it weren't so difficult to find bras with wires shorter than 4" while also being a narrow U shape (along with all the other requirements I need for a bra to fit, of course).
Once my camera arrives in the mail, I'll take better pictures and write a more detailed review on my blog.

I like this bra, but it is not the most comfortable (I'm used to less high wires now) and under mid-tight shirts it *looks* like I have quadboob because the thin fabric doesn't hold in all my tissue. Atm on the rag I'm a bit larger than normal and the cup is a bit too small on the left, but still too big on the right.
- Update May 2015 - The little thread dots on the cup have started pilling. I wear this bra regularly and it's the perfect color under a turquoise shirt I have with lace at the top (so the bra matches the lace). It does get uncomfortable, especially under the arms, by the end of a day. But a solid place in my closet!

I got this because my 30G Marcie is slightly on the small side during times of the month when I'm fuller. Turns out, I don't need a full cup size bigger, as this is both too wide (30G is perfect) and there's some wrinkling at the top and sides. I find the underwires very bitey, probably because of their width. Still, it's an ok fit, and I've kept it as a laundry day/the previously mentioned fuller days problem/emergency kind of bra. I thought the pink colourway would look horrible on me (I have pale skin with reddish undertones which clashes easily with pinks), but it's actually pretty cute. It does show through white shirts, though.

Well made bra, very pink! It has a bow pattern at the top of the cups. The band is firm.
The gore is quite high and wide, but no more than other cleo bras.

Bought this in a 30GG because even though my usual bra size seems to be around 26J right now, I hear you go one size down for unpadded and since this is not available in 26 band and I couldn't find it in a 28 band I settled for a 30 band which i am going to take in.
I find the underwires very wide, and as a result they poke me a lot, like EM bras. Luckily they are less pointy wires than Ewas so it hurts a lot less. However the wires are so wide they are almost stretching onto my back - not the most comfy ... thing ever. However with my full on top boobs, I find it very hard to find many unpadded ones that work, as most of the ones I have tried on have not fit at the top, as the top detail usually cuts in even on bras that have cup sizes that exceed mine. This Marcie bra is very good for those with firm full on top boobs, and it gives a nice, very rounded appearance, unlike many of the other unpadded bras I have tried.
Band seems pretty true to size, if a bit bigger? I have no idea since it is too big for me anyway.
It's made out of a very soft material and feels nice against the skin, and the detailing on the bra is stunning https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
If you have full on top boobs which haven't got tiny narrow roots and you want a rounded effect then I would recommend this bra for you https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
