Review of Cleo Marcie in 30D and 28DD.
The Cleo Marcie is one of the most popular bras in the bra fitting community. Since I had good luck with the Cleo Neve Strapless in 30D, I thought I would give the Cleo Marcie a shot. I decided to buy it in both 30D and 28DD. 30D because it worked for me in the Cleo Neve Strapless, 28DD because that is my real size. I bought the Marcie in Raspberry just to test it out.
Band Size: Very loose. The 28 band bra stretch out to 30.5" and the 30 band bra stretches out to 35". Contrary to other reviewers of the Marcie, the ones I received have loose bands. I prefer the 28 band one.
Cup Shape: This bra is for people with average or slightly shallow shapes. The wires are slightly broad. It is very open on top and is good for people who are FOT or have tall roots.
Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: Good. The cups are about as far apart as I can stand. If they were any further apart that would be bad. The gore is 2" high in both sizes and it is about as high as I can stand. It is comfortable but if it were any taller it would not be comforable.
Color: Not for me. I personally don't feel as if the Raspberry color looks good on me.
Verdict: This would have been a 100% rated bra if it were not for the color. I will return these bras later and try to get the Cleo Marcie 28DD in Candy Pink and Aquamarine. Go for this bra if you have broad roots, average to slightly below average projection. It should get extra points if you are FOT and/or have tall roots.
