    This is my first non-VS bra. Based on my measurements, I was suggested to be a 36GG, but that was absurdly large on me (trying multiple styles), so finally reached 34FF as the right size for me. This bra does a great job of lifting and holding my slightly splayed breasts up front - so much so that it actually pushes them close enough that the gore is a bit too high (which has never been an issue for me, even with the other bras I've tried in the last few weeks) and it digs in a bit. So far it's not serious enough to be a problem. Also, the shape feels little torpedo-y to me, but I think I'm also just used to very little support, thus a more "settled" shape. I think this would be a great bra for anyone who wants a "high and perky" shape.

      congrats! yeah, the Marcie shape is very special. you either love it or hate it. But, having found this, hopefully you can start finding more in your correct size!

    • It looks on the verge of being too small, but Marcie is a very full-on-top shape so sometimes people who are not so full-on-top find it a bit pointy

    • dbmamaz I think that's accurate - I'm definitely maxing out the cups, and even my smaller side (right) is filling out the cup completely, which is unusual. I'd previously tried the Maddie, but it cut in slightly at the top so I was recommended to try Marcie instead.

    • dbmamaz Oops, not the Maddie, the LUCY. My bad.

    This is the first bra that I really loved the look of AND it fit me better than most, but honestly it's not the best. I think it's because it pushes my boobs up too high, so they take on more of a spherical shape. It feels a little tight between the outside underwire and the shoulder strap.

    However, the gore nestles perfectly between my boobs and I'm a sucker for the blue ribbon/red button detail.

    Haven't worn it enough to know if it will stretch out.

    I should have ordered a 34G. I'm sending this one back. This bra looks pretty good other than that, to the best of my knowledge. My breast tissue is overflowing at the top all the way to the side wire. The structure of the bra seems fairly similar to Panache Envy but with narrower wires and obviously a less deep cup. When I get a 34G in this style, we'll see how that one does.

    I love Marcie's. And that, is that.

    Okay, well maybe I should note that I am really a 32G, but I got such a good deal on two 34FF's (which included a PURPLE ONE). I like having the loose band for bloated and uncomfortable days. I also have a 32G, and it does get uncomfortable after a couple hours, my 34FF's don't. Well, the band goes up, but it doesn't dig.

    I tired the Marci and a few other sister cuts to see if any would vary enough to fit me. Unfortunately, none worked :( The pink color is very pretty and vibrant, and i like the blue button and bow combo on the gore. Polka dot mesh is right up my alley!

    The Marcie I got a 34FF in, because (from what I remember) the 34F I tried on a while ago didn’t work, nor did a 36E.The band is firm, but ive found Cleos relax after a short while and feel okay. The gore feels very uncomfortable and presses down hard enough to ... leave a mark. The cup is baggy at the top lace half, and also near the center of the cup. The straps get caught in my armpits and make the cup feel like it pushes forward and further exacerbates the gaping.

    Ive only recently discovered im more of a "large shallow" shape, so its likely nothing in this family will work for me. Hopefully i can pass this along to someone who can find a better fit with it!

    I am in love with this bra! It gives a fantastic rounded shape and the aquamarine color is beautiful. The underwires dig into my sternum a bit but I've yet to find a bra that doesn't, and the band is a touch on the tight side but nothing that an extender can't take care of while it stretches out.

    One of my best fitting bras, another Nordstrom Rack find. Everything about it is almost perfect, except for the gore. It lays flat against my chest, but it is too high for my close boobs. It's been getting better as I've been getting used to it, but I have a sore red mark at the end of the day :/

    That being said, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the shape it gives me. Perky and rounded and Gorgeous!

    If anybody finds me this exact bra with a slightly lower gore I will be forever in your debt.

    Can't wear this bra more than once a week or it cuts into my underarm flesh to the point of wearing off the top layer of skin, not pleasant. Think the wires might be too narrow for me but the fact that the wires are so low is the main issue as far as I can tell.

    Apart from the cups not fitting it gives a nice shape and the material is comfortable/not scratchy.
