    I really like the look and fabric of this bra. Given that I have some neuropathy between ribs on one side, I struggle with banded bras and prefer the fit and look of a bra without a full band (no band under the cups). The Marcie barely has a band beneathe the cups but it is enough that I cannot place the wire in my IMF and wear it comfortably for long days. It's okay for occasions or an evening out, but not all day in a classroom. The Marcie's does have little thread loops to make it look like lace maybe, which doesn't hurt nearly as much as a band with real lace. I have cut up so many banded bras trying to get the annoying lace off ;-). The Marcie fits differently than the Kali and I'm at a loss to explain the difference since they are both balconettes.

    Hasn't set fit

    This fits very well overall. The band is snug but not uncomfortable and there is no quadboobing over the top. However, there is slight in-cup quadboob but nothing major and it will most likely stretch a little. The straps are soft against the skin and the fabric of the cups is not scratchy at all.

    I love this bra. It is very comfortable. The lace at the top of the cup is a bit loose, but doesn't show under tops. I do find the gore a bit high and pokey for my close set boobs. The projection is great and it gives me a nice, upfront, and rounded shape.

    This Marcie is the first Cleo that I purchased.

    Pros: It's really cute. I have it in red and I love how lacy it is.

    Cons: Extremely tight band. I cannot wear without an extender. Lots of empty space at the top of my cups. I can't tell if it's supposed to be like this though. Everything about this bra is tight and uncomfortable on me. The gore goes up higher than normal and it is painful. The width of the cups doesn't seem to be wide enough either, or maybe it's just the band is soo tight that everything is cutting into my tissue. ALSO, I am not ... a huge fan of how thin the fabric is. It feels like my nipple is bound to pop out at any second, because it's sitting awkwardly, right on the seam of the bra. (I have found this strange seam to be the case in another Cleo that I tried on at a store one time. Not sure if this is *normal* for Cleos, or what).

    Definitely not my bra! For my next Cleo purchase I will size up to a 38

    I purchased this bra in 36G while I was trying to find the best size bra for me. The 36" band in the Marcie was perfect (although I think the straps are made a little tighter in Cleo, so I might be a 34 in other brands...). However, the cups were too big for me. I will size down to an F and see if that's better because the Marcie was quite a bit bigger than my breast tissue. The center gore is very narrow which I enjoy. I will definitely try to find my proper size in this brand, and maybe get a few different colors too! :)

    This is my first bra in my "real size" after spending years in bras that just didn't fit at all. Needless to say, I'm pretty new to reviewing properly-fitting bras, but I'm actually very pleased with this one thus far.

    The band's quite snug, but not unwearable. I may pick up an extender until I get used to the snugness. My breasts are quite pendulous yet still pretty full on top, so they fill out the cups almost perfectly. There are no gaps, and I've worn the bra a full day now and the wires don't bother me at all. The straps are great, and the support/shape is, ... well, like nothing I've ever seen on my body before, hah.

    The only thing I'm not entirely happy about is the fact that the exposed top part does jiggle a bit when I move. It's probably due to my soft breast tissue. I may need to look into getting a non-balconette next.

    Update: Okay, two days wearing the bra and I'm noticing a bit of loose tissue on the side and quadboob up top after hours of wear. I think I may need a cup size larger.

    The cups are waaaay too small. Massive quadboob, the wires dig in on the sides, and the gore doesn't tack. Scooping and swooping lasts until I move, then I have to do it again.

    Extremely cute bra but sadly did not fit. Band seemed a little firmer than Lucy. Will be exchanging for a 36GG

    This bra is suuuper gorgeous - makes my boobs look amazing and nicely rounded from the side. When I put it on in the fitting room, it seemed perfect. With a little wear, I've discovered that it can get fairly painful during the day, especially sitting down at work. The underwire tends to painfully poke into the fat above it on my arm. (Sidebar - how on earth is a plus size girl supposed to figure out what's fat and what's breast tissue when scooping into cups?) Likewise, by the end of the day I'd have fairly painful pressure points at the top of the gore in front ... of my chest. However, there was spare room in the channel, and I've been able to push the wire down in front, and squoosh it in flush with the elastic in the channel on the sides, which actually mostly fixes both problems- having that elastic there helps to cushion it instead of it just being wire stabbing through mesh. I'm also hoping with wear it'll chill out a little.
    I do also wish the wings were a little larger or firmer, because on a fatter body, it does tend to squoosh in, but not in a painful way.

    On the plus side, this is the most secure I've ever felt in a bra - they're not going anywhere! It's also my first non-moulded cup, so I can't really compare that well to others of its ilk, other than that I seem to have a like 1/11 hit rate in the dressing room, and this is the best so far!

    EDIT: okay, I've since realized I was totally in the wrong size when I wrote this, an remigrated a lot, so take it with a grain of salt.
