Cleo Marcie is a great stepping stone for me in terms of finding a great fitting bra. It gives a nice lift and a rounded shape that I have been hoping for. I do have some slight issues with the gore and the sides of the bra. For the former, the gore does ride up a bit when I move around. It may be because I have a more narrower "boob valley"....but I also can't deny that I do get sweaty quite easily (especially since it's summer right now). You can say it's partially my fault too. For the latter, I do think I need a longer underwire ... to capture whatever escapes near my armpit. Maybe it's just an insecurity for me because it's a natural part of my body (since I'm quite pudgy at the moment). Anyway, Cleo Marcie is a great bra for me. No wrinkling seen anyway. And I have no issues with the straps falling down.
Some hindsight, I am even for my right breast but my left leans on the FoT-shape. I do have tall roots, which I think why this bra really works for me. I am quite pendulous and I have uneven sizes. My left is a bit bigger than the right. Also, what's great about the Marcie is that it truly lifts up my boobs. I have them quite low on the chest so the lift it gives me tears me up in happiness. I also love how it's giving me centred lift. I have my babies naturally pointing to east and west so it's another praise for this bra.
I do hope to fine a lined/panned version of this bra as I hope to have something a bit more substantial to wear while at work. The unlined nature of the bra does worry me in terms of stretching despite of its good structure.
edit: after years of unnotice, I am actually FoT-shaped on my left and that it is the bigger side. Duly corrected by Mar. 2019

This bra definitely DOES NOT fit, and never did. I was really new at bra fitting when I bought it so I wasn't sure what a proper bra was meant to be. The shape was all wrong, and it was too big all over.

I'm surprised how well this fits, actually. I have full-on-bottom breasts and was warned that Marcie rarely works for my breast shape. I don't fill the top, but it's no worse than in the Cleo Izzy, Cleo Minnie or Panache Floris. In fact, I think I fill out the top of these cups better than I did in those three other bras. Also, the material where the cup meets strap doesn't dig into my armpits as badly as on other bras I've tried in my search for a bra that fits.
I'm going to try the next size down (34E) and see if that's a winner.

Just the TINIEST bit of quad boob. Here's hoping a 34FF does the trick...

This is my BEST fitting bra. I got it yesterday and only wore it once so far. I ordered it in my regular size and at first, thought the cups were too small because I'm used to full cups in unpadded (but not sheer) fabric - after checking everything twice, it definitely fits - though I'm going to get one in a cup size larger just to make 100% sure and also for that time of the month (which is, of course, now). So keep in mind, I might be a tad swollen at the time of this review https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
I ordered this ... in candy pink on deep discount. Just FYI, I'm close set, full on top, very projected and very short (my height, that is). I was worried that this bra would be unbearably itchy but it's actually quite nice to wear when it's hot out because it's so sheer! The temp was in the 90s today and I didn't get any boob sweat. I will say though that at the end of the day, the wings of the bra started to get uncomfortable and scratchy on the sides. The band is definitely tight so I wore this with an extender. I didn't want to size up because I read that it stretches out fast.
I know everyone loves the fabric of this bra, but to me it's a con. It feels flimsy! It's insanely pretty to look at but doesn't feel very supportive. There's also a tiny bit of slack? on the sides of the bra (where my breast tissue meets my armpit on the top and sides) where I feel like the fabric could be a little firmer. I'm not sure if that's the cut of the bra or my shape? I feel like it doesn't support that area - although if it were firmer there, I might get more of a torpedo boob shape and bulging armpit fat. (I hope I'm making sense?)
Anyway, the cups fit great - no wrinkling anywhere! The gore tacks but isn't as firm as I'd like it to be - there's maybe a centimeter of give and I prefer it to be so tight it leaves marks (haha). While I was rushing around today I did feel my boobs jiggle more than I'm used to and after inspecting this bra after wearing it all day, I'm afraid the fabric just won't hold up for very long! It already looks like I've worn it a handful of times when it's only been one (albeit, busy and sweaty) day. All in all, I'm happy with this bra but will be looking for something in the same cut but in a firmer yet still stretchy fabric.

I was told this bra wouldn't work with shallow breasts, and it didn't. The top of the cup gaped too much. The place where the strap and the cup meet was rough and *really* irritated my skin as soon as I put it on. Too bad, it's a really cute bra.

The Marcie is just so, so pretty. Unlike others, I didn't find the band too tight, but I usually size up in Panache anyway... It's also a bit too high in the cups, so I can't wear it with some of my deeper v-necks, but, as of now, it's my best fitting bra.
