    I tried the Cleo Hettie first, but it was a shape mismatch. Too closed on top, giving me a torpedo shape. I had heard the Marcie needs a lot of top fullness, and I would have to agree. I can't quite fill the tops. BUT, it's close enough that I can fix it with a little tack. I'm quite happy with this Marcie in other respects. The material is a soft mesh and the cups are topped with a non-stretch lace. The polka dot pattern is subtle and cute, and the straps have ribbing on the tops for visual interest. The band seems to hold in place pretty ... well and there is still some, but less slippage out of my IMF.

    The Marcie and Hettie are able to hoist my heavy boobs for good uplift. The Marcie gives a nice round shape. (Looks like a kidney in the dusky rose https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_neutral.gif" alt=":|" /> ) It gives almost too much vavoom for me - my boobs are higher than I'm used to for sure!

    I will either keep this one or exchange it for a different colorway if I can find one in my size.

      Unless you need the bra wires to be that wide, I bet you could size down one cup size and still be comfy. I find Marcie to be quite generous in the cup in this size range.

    • Oops! I didn't mean to submit this as an adventure. Seems to be no way to delete, so enjoy my bland review! :)

    • cupandahalf Thanks for the tip! I have free returns on this one from Amazon, so maybe I will try it a cup size down.

    Brings the girls up to new heights. Material is a bit scratchy. The seam for the underwire on the right side has a weird sharp edge that cuts my arm every time I try this bra on. I can't decide if it's tight or if all the bras I've owned up to this point have just been too loose in the band. I think I could go up a cup size if they made a K.

    I think the 36J Marcie is about as close to perfect as I'm going to get. I might try it in a 38J to see if that will help stop the wire from poking into my sides. It might also help if I pull the underwire up further in the channel on the sides (and lower in the center gore) so it doesn't end in the middle of my side boob.

    The shape I get from this bra is fantastic! And it's the first bra I've owned that doesn't slip down my rib cage as soon as I put it on--it sits right where it's supposed ... to and holds my breasts where I like them to be. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> And best of all, it doesn't quadboob on my full-on-bottom-and-also-on-top boobs. Well...it doesn't quadboob *much*...it fits my smaller breast but my larger one is always SOL. And even the slight quadboobing on the larger one isn't really noticable, it's miles better than my other bras.

    Aside from the pokey underwire, there's one other problem: the straps. They're too far apart so they fold in on themselves in a weird, mildly unpleasant way. However, this is a structural issue for all bras that fit me reasonably, including my other Cleo and my Ewa Michalak. I don't think there's a solution to that issue because if the straps were attached closer to the front of the bra rather than towards my armpits, it would sort of divide my not-so-firm breasts and press the outer portion of them into my armpits rather than toward the front. I believe this is an inconvenience those of us with very large breasts just have to deal with when it comes to bras that fit. Just my two cents.

    The general consensus is that Marcie is good for full-on-top shapes, but I also recommend giving it a try if you're more even shaped but somewhat projected. Wish it came in a JJ.

    Very comfortable, but maybe should have gotten a 38HH. Give a nice shape

    This bra is very comfortable but you will jiggle jiggle jiggle when you walk. The straps and band are very stretchy. I'm already wearing it on the middle set of hooks after 3 wears. Now the cups fit a bit differently then when I originally purchased the bra. I now have lots of wrinkling at the top but it is not noticeable with a shirt on.
