Festive Red Lingerie & Cleo Marcie Review
Red lingerie must be the most gifted shade of underwear. Not surprising, considering men love to buy it for their special woman in their life and women feel pretty darn good wearing it. Red lingerie defines seduction and luxury and as such deserves to be given the gift wrapped treatment on more occasions than Valentines. Being a fantastically festive colour, Christmas is the perfect excuse.

I’m usually a 28H in both Freya and Masquerade, but I’m finding with Cleo a 28GG fits much better. So, judging by my experience with Cleo’s Meg in a 28H, I ordered the 28GG for the Marcie. It fits perfectly!
The band is just how I like it, firm but not overbearing. The back fastening is only double hook and eye but it works very well and isn’t narrow. The style is balcony which cuts nicely over my bust. It’s not full covering so allows a nice shelf of cleavage. The straps are ribbed, which I love, and they’re wide enough without looking frumpy.
I liken Marcie to Cleo’s best selling Lucy. The cup fitting is very similar with the same three sections and lace panel. Where Lucy has flowers Marcie has spots which I love. The centre bow also has the addition of a cute tiny button. What’s different in the bra structure is the band which continues around the whole bra beneath the under wiring, providing additional support to the front. I think it makes it look a lot more attractive too.
I fell in love with Marcie ever since I first saw it online but I was wary about how it would fit considering some reviews I’d read. My experience has been extremely positive which I’m relieved to report. Something I had to do with my Cleo Lucy was amend the centre gore by stitching it closer together to fit my close set boobs. I haven’t needed to do this with Marcie which is just perfect. The band is as I’d expect and the bra is just really good fitting; it looks good and feels great to wear. I fully recommend you give this one a go!
Have you asked Santa for anything red this Christmas? Or do you prefer another colour?
