    This is probably the first seamed bra I tried that didn't end up giving me mild to major quad boob, didn't immediately feel itchy or painful anywhere else, and basically just seems to fit in terms of the cup shape and size. I really like the shape I get from it, but as someone else mentioned, the underwire is oddly short. It's working to my advantage a little, because the gore is really too high for me and at first I was finding after an hour or two I'd end up with itchy red marks on the skin between the breasts. So I've pushed the ... wires towards the armpits instead. Mostly this is working out, but I was finding that long periods of wear end up bothering me there now, especially if I'm moving more, but I find this more tolerable and easier to avoid than where it was pressing on my chest. But the cups otherwise seem to encase all breast tissue, so that's been great for me. It also confirms that my shape is more even-to-FOT, rather than FOB like I originally assumed.

    I'd tried the 36E because it was a sister size to the 34F that is likely my actual size, and the 36E was available so I could easily check it out, unlike the 34F. I'm keeping it because it *was* on sale, but I've also ordered a 34F to try to see if that fit is even better. The 36 band is definitely large on me, and I found the Cleo Lily I got in 34 seemed to fit much better in the band (if not the cup). So I'm hopeful that the 34F will work even better.

    I was told the band of this bra is running tight. Therefore I bought a 36E instead of a 34F, but now it is too loose even on the tightest hook.
    I would not recommend going a band up with this bra, but instead using an extender if it fits to tight in the beginning.

    This bra works for me, even if it might not be a perfect fit.
    I have asymmetric boobies, so the cups are a hint too small on my bigger breast and also slightly too big for the smaller one.
    Adjusting the straps can't fix it completly and going up 1 size causes wrinkling at the top and poking wires. So I guess I am just between the sizes.

    It is pretty. The lace shows through under tees. The straps do not adjust long enough for me. I will not wear or keep this bra as it cuts into my breast tissue on the sides and the straps cut in to my shoulders due to lack of length.

    I bought this in a sister size of mine, with the intention of altering it. The Aquamarine colourway is gorgeous! It's that perfect colour right in between blue and green. So precious.

    Everything fits perfectly except the band is way, way too large. I love how easy it is to sister size up in Cleos: the cup measurements are the exact same as in 30G, only the band is bigger. The alteration should be done in a jiffy. I'll come back to review it further once I get it done.

    I don't understand the fit of this bra. I heard the band ran small so I ordered my sister size 36E when I usually wear 34F. The band fit comfortably on the loosest hook. The bottom 2/3's of the cup fits great but the lace on the top 1/3 seems like it was transplanted from a larger cup. The top of the cup is baggy for lack of a better term. It could be easily fixed with a tuck and a few stitches. However, the wire is weird too. It's like someone chopped off 1/2 inch of the wire before sewing ... it in. It moves around and leaves a gap either at the gore or the outer edge of the cup. The shape I get (if I ignore the problems) is awesome! Uplifted and perfectly rounded. The color is a bright beautiful red. The bottom of the cup is two pieces of polka dotted red on red mesh. The top 1/3 of the cup is an absolutely beautiful soft lace with bow, scallop and crosshatch embroidery detail. The center gore sports a cute navy satin bow with a tiny red button. The straps are fully adjustable elastic with crochet detail, but they are the thinnest straps I've seen on a bra in this size range. The sides are red power mesh cut into a leotard back. In wish the sides were a bit wider as I've got a bit of side boob escape. Pending a fit request I may or may not keep this bra as I paid full price for it. I bought the adorable matching briefs too & they fit great so it would be a shame if I didn't keep the set.

    • Hello, I've got Cleo Marcie in 34F. The band is little too tight (I'm using extender), so I'm considering buy 36E. How was the band? Compared to other bras?

    • The 36E band fit like my other panache 34F bands. I'd trade you if yours is brand new. I've only worn mine for review pics and then a few hours.

    • I'm using it, because I need bra. It's great fit but it feel a little bit tight. I've got a problem with band, because when I find bra with cups that fit I'm between sizes in bands...
      Do you think 34F will work better for you?

    • Yes. Every time I've sister sized to a 36E in bras that are cut the same as other 34F's I own I feel like it fits funny. The cups don't feel quite as supportive.

    • I don't know where are you from, but I bought my Marcie here for really good price: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B008OH7IQK/ref=asc_df_B008OH7IQK11816773?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=googlecouk06-21&linkCode=asn&creative=22206&creativeASIN=B008OH7IQK
      And now it's even cheaper! Damn, I'll have to wait :)
