Read the reviews before buying and went up one cup size. NOT ENOUGH! Usually a consistent 36DDD, ordered one cup size larger. Tried on the bra and had major spillage. Too bad as I loved the pink color. Returned bra and asked for TWO cup sizes larger, or 36G. Was contacted by herroom that 36G was not available in pink and offered yellow. Very happy with the color and fit of replacement bra! Great shape, positioning, and support. Happy from North Richland Hills, TX USA

It's a great fit for me, lies flat under basically everything, and comes in adorable colors. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Creates full, rounded, separated bust. No bounce, very comfortable! Submitted from TheUndies.com

I love this bra. The fit is great. It gives me a nice round uplifted look. My only wish would be for this to come in better colors. The ones available are not very good for my wardrobe. Black or nude would be far more applicable. Carrie from Iowa

Fits nicely. Supports well even while active. Very comfortable. Impressed and very happy with my purchase! Jessica Ann from Montrose Colorado USA

I expected to really like this bra but alas, it wasn't for me. Compared to the Cleo Lucy the Marcie has a higher center gore which doesn't work for my shape. ie: the center gore digs into breast tissue even though the fit seemed good. Detterbees from Brockton, MA, U.S. A.

I recommend sizing up in the cup, but even though the bra I own is technically a bit too small in the cups, I love it. It gives me such incredible uplift (because it's a bit tight). The tops of the cups stretch, so even though they aren't the perfect fit, they don't cut into my tissue or cause jiggles. I get really lifted, rounded, forward shaping - and it looks great!

This bra is GREAT. It gives my breasts a wonderful rounded shape, and lifts them up nicely. Most bras on me have gaps in the bottom of the cup, and tend to shift down, pushing my breasts down against my chest. But this bra holds them up and keeps them in place all day long. My only complaint is that the underwire is very uncomfortable in the armpits. So much so that I tacked a bit of soft padding covered in flannel onto one side. I also find the straps to be uncomfortable and the band to be narrow. If they added a touch of foam padding to the underwire and made the band be wider, this would be the Perfect Bra.

This bra runs small in the cup, I recommend sizing up by one cup size. Otherwise, I really love this bra. It is comfortable, straps and band do not ride up or down. The construction really gives my breasts a wonderful, round shape and lift that I haven't had in forever. The biggest difference I see from my previous bras is that this bra pulls the girls back to the center of my torso and makes me look slimmer - my chest no longer looks wider than my shoulders. My only complaint is that from the profile, my breasts are really protruded. But then again, I like that they are no longer wider than my chest from the front view, and I'm not sure how I could get it both ways successfully! Sue from Washington, DC

This was more like a push up bra which I don't need. I had to send it back. JD from AZ

I've been trying to find the right size for so long. This bra is wonderful, although for some reason I now have two panache bras of different cup sizes and both fit? I don't know what that is about. Anyway, this bra gives a nice round shape and is not itchy. Definitely worth the money! Catherine from Ohio

This was a very uncomfortable bra. The stitches in the back and the hooks felt like they were made of Velcro. It was so bad I can only hope I received a dud, but I'm wary of trying another and having to return it again. It just seemed very cheaply made. I couldn't wear it for very long so I'll be returning it. I also felt the band and straps could have been wider considering the weight they're holding up. Stephanie from Philadelphia, PA USA

This was one of the most uncomfortable bras I've ever tried on. The stitching around the hooks made the fabric very stiff which caused it to scratch my skin. It felt like I was wearing velcro on my back. I may need to go down a band size, but I'm reluctant to try this bra again. I'll definitely be returning it.

Cleo by Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback! We are disappointed to hear that you weren’t pleased with the bra. Marcie balconnet bra is a super cute style that offers great uplift and support. It’s a possible that because it wasn’t a perfect fit, the bra didn’t feel good on. We recommend consulting HerRoom's Bra Fitting Advice Page prior to making any purchases. Stephanie from Philadelphia, PA USA

I LOVE this bra! I have a terrible time finding bras that support me and give me great shape and this one does both beautifully! PLEASE get more colors in! (I would also like this in nude--I'm having a terrible time finding one!) Jeanna from La Vista, NE

This bra is very well made and beautiful. Absolutely great for a 'night in' (husband gives enthusiastic approval of set). This gives beautiful shape but in the interest of being thorough, here are my niggling points: 1) cups are a bit wide so as to give a small amount of extra fabric sticking out on the sides. I have full, round breasts but do have implants and this may not be a problem with natural breasts. I range between a 30DD and 30E. Maybe this would be a non-issue with the DD but then I felt I may have had an overly forward, almost minimizing look. 2) Fabric does show under knits, 3) I have to 'tuck' my lady bits past the lace so as to minimize show through. 4) The lace is a bit itchy but this may give with time. This bra is wider than the Lucy in the cups (some say they have to order up with the Lucy). Overall supportive and very gorgeous, just not a t-shirt bra for me. Hotmama from Kirkland, WA

I love this bra! It's so nice to be able to wear a sexy bra that lifts and separates "the girls" nicely. Jeanna from La Vista, NE

I have had a lot of trouble finding a bra that fits correctly. Cleo is amazing! I have very full "girls" but never feel like I'm going to fall out, straps are thick enough for support, too. I TOTALLY forget I am wearing this bra - that's how awesome it is for me. Mercedes from KS

I'm madly in love with this bra. Being short (4'10"), thin (28) and fairly busty(DDD), I've had a hard time finding bras that fit just right. This is the first and now I want it in every color. I'm giddy. It's supportive, cute/sexy, comfortable, and didn't show through clothes nearly as much as I thought it would (even when cold). If you are on the fence, just get it. Ria from Spokane, Wa

Cleo bras are a favorite of mine due to the adorable sexy styles and the tight fit on the band. This one does not disappoint. Love the color red and the swiss dots. The blue bow with button is awesome too. I feel this runs a little small in the cups but not enough to go up a full size. I can only give this 4 stars though because I feel that a FF should really have a three clasp closure not a two. This bra can be worn under a tshirt that is darker in color without any issues. Very sexy and comfy because of the nice tight band. Molly from St. Louis, MO

The pictures don't do this bra justice. Cleo by Panache has designed another winner with the Marcie bra, a red-hot number (blue-red, not yellow-red!) that offers the same round shape to the bust that that their Lucy bra does. The lace at the top of the cups is just lovely, and the cute little button with the navy bow makes it perfect. This might just be my new favorite bra. Karen
