The bras straps are too tight and has little stretch. The bra also seems very flimsy and the bone is sticking me under the arm. There is also a space on the outer side of the strap
I'm quite small busted and a bit insecure about that, but this bra gives a lovely forward facing and uplifting shape without being pointy. Excellent fitting thanks to the staff in store; I had no idea I was anything near the size they put me in, but it's perfect. Very happy with my first purchase, soon to be followed by many more :)
I have several of these 'Marcie' bras, and just love the support and 'up front' shape it gives me. Having lost 2 stone over the past 18 months, I have gone down a cup size to 32GG, but I'm glad that this bra still gives me a pointy 'full' look. I can wear the bra all day & night and forget that I am wearing it. I love the nude colour, as it is pretty, and not boring like a lot of nude bras can be. Even in the nude colour I feel like I have "va va voom" wearing this bra!! It's the best bra I have ever bought & worn, and the price is reasonable too - more bright colours though please!!
I have purchased this bra several times in multiple colors and sizes. When I gained weight or lost weight, I would buy this bra in a different size and it would still work wonders. The very first time I bought this bra, it lasted about two years, maybe three. It is incredibly flattering in both the chest and the back. Compared to my others bras, I would say this might even make me look like I weigh less too! There really isn't much to say about this bra that is negative, other than I wouldn't recommend doing any gym related activity in it and you must, must, must hand wash every single time due to its delicate nature. I have literally become obsessed with this bra shape. I love the design...very stylish and sexy. If they ever stopped carrying it, I would be devastated.
This was the suggestion of the lady in the shop after I'd tried what seemed like every other 'nude' bra available. Panache Tango balconette my usual 'go to' style was out of stock and I was desperate...Several weeks on from purchase (usually when a different style gets dumped) - I still love this delicate yet amazingly supportive bra, can't believe how comfortable this is. I agree with other reviewers of larger cup size it works really well for us. I chose not to go down a cup size but cups are generous. More 'forward' fitting than Tango, more supportive than Urban Rose. Works better with a lower neckline and OK with fairly light summer fabrics, the dots can show a bit but not as much as Tango 'leaves'. I Love this bra - please make nicer briefs to match with decent coverage for tums and bums. Thanks ladies for all other reviews which I find really helpful.
I was sceptical when I saw how comparatively flimsy the Marcie is compared to some of my other bras, but once I got the sizing right (I had to size down - I usually wear a 36HH or 38H but the 36H was perfect in this style) I was impressed. The polka dots and lace trim are so pretty and that flimsiness is actually a big reason why I now love the bra - it's nice to have one in my collection that doesn't feel comically huge and over-engineered. Of course, this involves a trade-off and I do find that after wearing all day, the thin straps dig into my shoulders more than on my Alana bras. But for such a pretty bra and nice shape, I'll put up with that. Let's face it, we big boobed girls know that they're a pain in the back and shoulder at the best of times.
I just love these bras. I have almost every color of it and just about to order the nude one again as i wore it so much its fallen apart. I love the shape the bra gives me and feel so comfy in them. Plus it is really suppotive, although its quite lacy everything stays where it should be, even during a trampoline session with the kids.
This is my favorite bra I have ever bought! I ended up getting it in all colors. Just recently the wire came out of two of the bras; but that is probably due to me wearing them so much and being awful at washing them correctly. But overall this bra is fantastic!
