Beautiful (By Not bad)

This bra is beautiful! It is everything you could ask for in a bra. Lightly padded so no show through and soft not scratchy lace around the waist. Sadly I will have to return it. I just lost some weight unfortunately in the bust and even the small is too big. UGH!

I like it, it’s a pretty bra, but it’s a little flimsy (By Madeleine Eve)

This bra feels like it’s going to last maybe four or five wears and then the elastic will just give out. I don’t have big boobs at all, but this bra really isn’t up to holding anything up. But it is a pretty bra and quite comfortable. I just wish the fabrics/elastic felt more durable. Might be the last time I get cosabella.

Love This Bra… (By Jennifer G)

This is a great bra. It does everything a good bra is supposed to do. It lifts, separates, supports, and gives you a really natural and youthful shape. I’ve liked this style for years and was really excited to see it looking a bit different. The embellishment is really pretty and makes the bra a bit more sturdy compared to it’s older style, which of course is also an added benefit. I noticed it washed a bit better. I’m just all around happy with this. It took me years to find the perfect bra. I’ve narrowed it down to three particular ones and this style has always been the one I’ve found myself wearing most. I always feel really attractive in it.

I bought this one to wear under white shirts and then-shirts, but it didn’t lay flat enough, and was too visible.

Comfortable enough and nice shape under cotton shirts (By Peep)

Cups are a smidge big in 34D, but perhaps they’re supposed to be that way. Comfortable enough and nice shape under cotton shirts. I find the comfort devotion by maidenform to be more comfortable and opt to wear it over the push-up bra. This push up does make the girls look bigger and is great for going out in:)

Cleo Women’s Marcie Balconette Bra Customer Reviews

Perfect Fit! (By E Schroeck)

As a big busted gal, I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I just figured out my true bra size at age 32. After reading several websites and blogs (www.butterflycollection.ca, http://brasihate.blogspot.com/, et.), I decided to try out a few bras that might fit me better than the 36DD bra VS had been putting me in for many years. I went to my local specialty bra shop to find smaller bands and larger cups. The minute I put this bra on, I felt like a new woman! I was fitted perfectly into a 32F and can’t imagine wearing anything poorly fitted ever again. I have since bought 6 bras in my appropriate size (mind you, all brands fit differently, so try on before you buy if possible.) The Marcie is by far my favorite. I love how it is snug in the band. I also love how it creates a rounded, full look for my breasts. As a thin and busty girl, this is my go-to bra. It is comfortable, stylish, sexy and makes me look soooo much better in my clothes. Thank you Panache!

Great support, but not so great comfort (By Lauren C)

When I first tried this on I was so excited because it was a perfect fit. The lift and support is great, even considering it is only a 2 hook closure, and I was not spilling out. The shape is equally as nice — round but not overly projected out and there is still some cleavage. However, after wearing it for a few days I find it is not the most comfortable. The band easily "curls" up and digs while the center gore squeaks a bit with movement and is rough against my skin. My hope is that with wear it will "soften" a bit and get more comfortable. Because the fit is so great I am still giving 4 stars.

Never thought I’d love an unmolded bra so much! (By Angel)

LOVE this bra. It is definitely the best fitting bra I’ve ever owned, and while it isn’t exactly perfect, it absolutely can’t be beat at this price! If you have breasts, you definitely should purchase this bra.

PROS:
-Tons of uplift! Seriously! (My boobs are actually PERKY in this sucker, and I NEVER thought that’d happen.)
-Sturdy yet breathable fabric, perfect for these scorching summer days. (Just for perspective here, I work in an non-airconditioned warehouse, and I experience absolutely NO boob sweat – thanks, Cleo!)
-SUCH a pretty color. I was dubious about it at first, since all my bras up until this point have been nude colored – but I really love having the bright blue, even though I have to wear a cami sometimes, because it makes a girl feel a little special to have "a pretty secret". Plus with a color like this, a brave enough girl could really rock the "intentionally displayed bra strap" look!
-The lace doesn’t show under t-shirts. Even t-shirts with really thin material!
-Nice deep cups and narrow underwires (which is perfect for me personally)

CONS:
-If you’re a little bit "fluffy", like me, the underwires might poke you in your armpit "fluff" for a couple days. Occasionally readjusting the wire inside its fabric helps.
-The band is a little bit tighter than I’m used to, which makes the pokey underwires even pokier. I wore an extender for the first week or so until the fabric relaxed a little, and then I didn’t need it anymore.
-If you’re not a "full on top" sort of a gal, the lacey part on top is probably not going to tack. I have very little upper pole volume and so I have a lot of extra space up there, yet somehow it still doesn’t show under my t-shirts!

(Plus, I could definitely custom tailor this with a few tiny stitches. But so far, it hasn’t been enough of a problem for me to do that.)
-The clasp is only two hooks. As a larger busted girl, it would be really awesome to have the support of a wider three-hook band. However, the if I put it on properly, it doesn’t dig in or give me back fat, so again it’s not too big of an issue. It would just be really nice if the band was wider.

Favorite new bra! (By Katie Polansky)

The Marcie gives the wonderful, round, uplifted shape I’ve been looking for. I wear a 30J in the Cleo Lucy, but since the Marcie is more open on top the 30HH fits perfectly. I have slightly full on top, close-set breasts with a slightly wide root and this bra fits like a dream!

Pretty color, great fit (By Trudy26)

I bought this pink bra despite its color, not because of it, but just adore the bright pink in person. It’s a vibrant, deep pink, so it works on super-fair, pastel-averse people like me just fine.

The fit is lovely as well. GREAT for those with a projected shape. I’m surprised at the number of reviewers recommending this bra to those who are full on bottom, since I think the generous top section would suit only those who are full on top, or have balanced fullness with a lot of firm upper breast tissue, like me. Also, while some note that the band’s a little small, I disagree–order your usual size. Marcie’s pretty stretchy, in a supportive sort of way, and sizing up in the band just creates problems. I’m a 28H but ordered a 30GG to start, based on the fit of an older, firmer Cleo style from years past. I wasn’t happy with the shape the 30GG Marcie gave me–it was a little droopy/round. The band was a touch too large, but I didn’t expect the 28H to make much difference with the cup shape, so I almost didn’t exchange it. Turns out, the 28H made a WORLD of difference. The droopiness vanished, and the bra was suddenly super flattering. If you find you’re not getting the uplift everyone talks about with Marcie, try sizing down in the band–it should help!

My only complaint is that the gore is very high, so it can get a little uncomfortable on my breastbone after a while. Note that this is fairly full-coverage; I can’t get away with low-cut tops and this bra.

Flattering AND comfortable (By Joanna K.)

I always struggle to find cute nightgowns that are flattering and comfortable. Most are cheaply made and are not meant for women with a chest. This one, however, is. It’s an all-around winner in my book. The top fits perfectly (38 D), it’s flattering for someone with curves and it’s comfortable to be worn as normal sleep ware. The lacy top has a soft lining and the straps don’t dig in. I plan on buying a lot more from this company in the future!

Very billowy (By Allan McNally)

A bit large with lots of fabric. I’m 5’3, 115 lbs and the small was large all over, especially in the chest. It doesn’t look like in the picture. Regardless, it had two large imperfections in the back where threads were coming out, and a hole was forming. Returned it.

cute retro vintage feel, comfortable, runs a tiny bit small maybe (factoring in its style) but worth it! (By Diana)

Really like this one. Very cute and sort of a vintage retro feel. Even as a balconnette type, the fit is snug, a little more than another I have in the same size. But not at all uncomfortable…. I’m being fussy here. I wish I could have tried both on to know how much diff there would be sizing up one cup. That said, this is very stunning and pairs amazingly with the stripe hype thong. ;)

A bit too snug (By Jennifer Penn)

This bra is a bit too snug compared to other makers 36DD. It will fit, but it is a pull to get it hooked and then it cuts in around the armpits due to the tightness. I will have to get an extension for the hooks to be able to wear it, but it is a Very cute bra!

Ouch! (By Jen)

This bra is adorable and the cups fit like a dream but the band is a bit tighter than any of my other 36DD which causes a pinching under my armpit where the underwire is located. I’m going to make an extender for the band and then I should be able to wear it.

Just what I needed (By Jane Taylor)

Super cute, fits great. It’s very comfortable and just a really great bra, glad i purchased and i will be buying from Betsey Johnson again

great purchase (By Jessica)

Very nice! Material is slinky and soft and the bow is not ostentatious like I had feared. Larger busted women may have an issue with the cup size as it is designed as a kinda catch all for cup sizes (I am a B and have room). I however, amd my husband, are very pleased. Shipping was also prompt.

Feels great, fits great! (By Vicki P)

Good fabric and great adjustable straps – even the G-string strap can slide around for the perfect fit for your bum! I am all around very pleased with this product. The only thing I want to say for others possibly buying it is that the slit up the side in the picture seems to only be a few inches long, but it in fact goes up almost all the way to the ribbon under the bra part. I was nicely surprised at this because a longer slit is what I had wanted in the first place!
I am a petite female (5’3", I wear anywhere between size 0-3 for pants, and fit comfortably into a C cup bra) and the small/medium size for this babydoll and g-string fit me perfectly.

So worth it! (By darcey55)

I was getting frustrated that every expensive lingerie item I own from VS never fit well or looked quite right and decided to try something (a lot) less expensive. This was perfect! So much bang for your buck – pun intended. It doesn’t even look cheap which was my main concern. I will be back to try more items from Just Sexy!

Comfy but Overstretches (By Vanessa Paniccia)

The first day that I wore this bra, I thought it was amazing. I noticed that it fit perfectly on the loosest set of hooks. After a week of wear, I noticed that I had to use the smallest set of clips in order to prevent the back from riding up. That’s right, after only 1 week of wear, the band stretched out so much that I needed to use the smallest set of hooks. I had hoped that this bra would last me a while, but with the way it stretched so quickly, I am pretty sure it won’t last very long. In light of this, I would suggest ordering down a band size and up a cup size. Too bad that as a 30D that’s not an option for me because this doesn’t come in a 28DD. It’s cute otherwise.

Good for a Different Shape? (By ealaw)

This item is probably not good if your breasts are relatively close together. The center gore was too wide for me and the fullest parts of the cup were too far apart, more to the sides.

Similar to VS secret embrace (By LAH)

I’ve been trying to find the perfect bra ever since Victoria’s Secret stopped making the secret embrace. I like the push-up style, but a lot of push up bras have far to much padding. The padding in this bra is perfect. It provides lift, but isn’t designed to add a cup size. The style of the band helps prevent the “roll” look that a lot of bras cause. I haven’t had the bra long enough to comment on how long it will last, but at half the cost of a VS bra, I feel like it is a great product at a great price.

BEST BRA EVER!!!!! (By T Deason)

My most prized part of my wardrobe is my lingerie first to my shoes! And among the plethora of pretties that I have THIS one is now my favorite! It’s comfy yet still a sassy piece! Great for everyday wear even to the gym! I bought it in black at Dillard’s (bored and disillusioned with everything “sexy” at VS), and fell in love with it’s fit, material, shape, and feel. So, I decided I wanted one in a soft nude and went online to get this one. I recommend trying one on at Dillard’s first to get your size for this particular bra. It does NOT size up like most bras! I am very tall and very thin, but I have broad shoulders and frame-my breasts aren’t naturally too close together and I have trouble finding bras with cups that are well placed on the correct band size without looking like my breasts are pouring out of the sides with a gap left in the cup, HA! I usually find myself stuck with a 36 band and smaller cup just to get the right spacing between cups when I’m a 32! This bra is amazing! It fit’s perfectly! But not in the size I would have assumed like the others! Finally one that properly fits to me! Go take some time, try one on and order it from Amazon-it’s cheaper here! LOVE!

accute allergic reaction (By KJ)

I bought this bra in 2 different colours because it was a great fit, practical and yet quite pretty. After wearing each of them once I noticed that the elastic sides had stretched abnormally out of shape and were bagging, but worst of all I have had an accute allergic reaction to my skin at the area of the bras’ under-padding and I have been in agony for a week with serious irritation that has nearly driven me insane and required medication.
After research, I note that there has been another customer review with an allergic reaction to a similar b.tempt’d bra which makes me wonder how many other people have experienced this but not reported it.
Wacoal you need to carry out some research into the materials you use for under-padding, I would not wish this reaction (agony) on anyone.

Very comfortable (By LY)

Really love this bra. This is the only one that I am willing to pay for at full price without any sales or discounts. It is very comfortable, and the underwire doesn’t hurt or dig in. I love how it is so smooth, light-weight, and doesn’t show under shirts. I also am a 30 band size, as many 32 bands are too big and ride up, and the band for this bra doesn’t stretch as much as other brands. The quality is also much better than my VS bras and can last a long time. There is some padding, but it works for me since I’m small.

Soft and comfortable, but fit is off (By John & Amanda)

I like this bra, but the cups are just way way too small. My measurements are underbust=29″ and bust=34″ so I ordered a 30D. The band fits, the material is nice, I like the straps and the color, but if the cups are too small and I can’t wear it, then none of that other stuff matters. I exchanged it for a 30DD, so hopefully that fits and I’ll update when I receive that one.

Update: I got a cup size bigger than I should be and it fits much better, but still fits a little weird. It’s like the cups are too far apart, but pushes everything toward the center, causing spillage. I have to adjust it often. However, it is very soft and comfortable! Wow. It does not feel like and underwire bra. Hopefully with a few wears and washes, the bra will soften and the fit will improve.

I think this would be good for a low cut looser shirt because it gives nice cleavage. But, I don’t like the shape and extra size it give with a fitted shirt.

Very comfy, but.. (By Angela D)

I truly wanted to love this bra. I got a 30DD, and it fit amazingly. The second fit, though, I noticed that it had stretched out quite a lot. By the time I got to wearing it for the 5th time, mind you once a week in rotation with other bras, it was completely unwearable.

I’m very disappointed, because the bra was so comfy and gave me the support I needed. I’m not sure if it’s a one off or if all the b.tempt’d are like this, but since I could only wear it a handful of times this gets a 3 star review. :/
