First off, I love this bra. It is the prettiest bra I have ever owned. I have no idea why it's referred to as a "plunge", when it pretty clearly is not. Even still, it looks fantastic.
Overall, I love the look it gives me-- slightly less rounded than the Cleo Lucy, with a very slight point, sort of a vintage shape. It fits me decently, but like with all bras, there is slight wrinkling in the upper lace portion for my left breast, as it is slightly smaller. This is not noticeable under clothes, and barely noticeable even without clothes. Also, this bra is slightly more projected than ... my Lucy, but only slightly-- I was finding that it was slipping about a .5-1" out of my IMF.
I realized that my shape is this, and some parts of it are counter-intuitive: my roots are wide, short, and low, plus I'm extra projected, bottom-full, and very flat on top. So, I need a bra that is wide enough, for sure, but most bras that are wide tend to be shallow. As a result, I'll have bras that are wide enough, but that I am gradually pushing away from my body, by the end of the day. Fortunately, even regardless of this, the Marianna still looks beautiful, and is very comfortable, so it's a keeper.
I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll have this issue with a lot of bras. Still, I will press onward for an even better fit.
