I bought this bra from Zulily with the hopes that it would be just as great as the handful of Marcies that I already had. It is quite similar but it doesn't quite do it for me. The bra was worn only to try on and has remained unworn for 2+ years. The matching briefs in size 12/M are unworn as well.

I'm pretty much at the start of my properly-fitting-bra saga, so I'm still working things out.
I've only had it for a few days but so far it seems pretty good, despite the gore being a bit too high, and even then it isn't causing any actual discomfort - I can just notice it sometimes if I shift in a weird way. I bought it online at Nordstrom on sale, and they were out of my size so I went a band size up. If I use the smallest set of hooks the band fits just fine and doesn't slide up while I wear it.
My left breast ... is larger than my right one and top heavy whereas the right is fuller on the bottom, so I'm typically prone to quad-boobing (or I guess it's tri-boobing in my case), but it only happens in this bra if I bring my shoulders back further than I do when standing normally, so I think I'm okay with it. If I went up another cup size my right boob would be drowning in it. And if I hunch my shoulders forward there's a bit of a gap on the outside of the cup, more noticeable on the right of course. Since I don't walk around like that typically I don't think I need to worry about that (but correct me if I'm mistaken!)
This is my first bra that doesn't have a molded cup, so I don't know if this is how they all are, but I really like that on the outside edge of the cup, the fabric continues up maybe half an inch further than the wire does - I feel like it holds me in, but having the wire extend that high would definitely be uncomfortable.
I don't know if it's going to stretch out/how it will wear with time since I've only had it a few days, but I'll come back and edit it all in if it's necessary. Overall I'm a fan :]
