    Used to fit

    This bra is a dream. It keeps up with me as an active mom of three young children. As I have been wearing this bra for 6 months I still find it my favorite. Due to the lack of space between my boobs the bra folds in the middle but does not gouge my sternum. When it folds it stays in the middle and does not walk over to the larger bust side whereas most of the other bra brands travel to the larger side.

    • what color do you have? You dont get the in-cup quad? Mine digs in at the seam and makes a horrible shape. reasonably comfy, tho

    • My suggestion is that if you are getting the in-cup quad then you need a size larger in the cup. I have the yellow that is posted in the picture.

    • I couldnt see the picture yesterday? I have heard the yellow doesnt do that as badly as the raspberry, which is what I have. I do notice it doesnt do that on my smaller side, so yes, maybe i need to go up a cup size. But honestly I'm not sure I'd try it again.

    I was very disappointed because the band is huge - I was told that the bands run really small and I should go up a size. Its too loose even on the tighest hook.

    The bra is fairly supportive and rounded, but clearly does not fit my breasts either - there is gapping on the top on both sides (even my big side).

    I'll post a fit request to try to figure out if I should reorder and in what size.

    Okay, the 34HH is definitely too small in the cups (see side pictures), but I think this bra will work for me if I can find the right size. The sizing issue is not Cleo's fault; it's just that I'm still trying to figure out my size. I've read that the Marcie actually runs a little large in the cups.

    As many others have noted, the shape is nice and round, and it's a good bra for someone with even/on-top fullness. The stretchy lace is very accommodating. And yet I really like how contained I feel, which is probably a result of the strong ... wires, good side support, and nice shaping from the lower part of the cups. It gives me a lovely side profile, no east/west issues.

    For me the straps were easy to adjust to the length I needed, and doing so greatly improved the shape/lift - possibly a sign that I could do with a smaller band?

    The only thing I have to complain about is the wires. This bra most definitely pokes, and it's hard to know how much to attribute to sizing issues. I have center-heavy, fairly close set breasts, and while the gore works to keep them apart (and actually tacks, a thing which I had never experienced before!), it also hurts. The top wires of the gore dig quite badly into my sternum - so much so that I will get tiny stab wounds if I wear it all day. On the sides, the wires may be a tiny bit wide for me, but they are definitely too high. I get some underarm poking which can be quite uncomfortable.

    Finally, looks: hot pink is usually not really my style, but I really like the contrasting bow and the polka dots on the mesh. I was very surprised by how pretty I felt in this bra. It's my husband's favorite at the moment! Should be even better in the right size.
