I've had my eye on the black Marcie for a long time, but with the recall and lack of stockists, getting my hands on one wasn't the easiest thing in the world. Bravissimo has had it for a while now but after they sent a return package back to me nearly two years go that put me out a bunch of money and knowing their shipping is pretty damn expensive, I was having trouble justifying the purchase. Then a few things started piling up and I was slowly convincing myself.
First, I bought this (cheap) bodystocking on Amazon and knew it would go very well with a black bra. Then I wanted to start a little DIY project that would also work best with a black bra (post definitely coming on that one). Lastly, Panache released the beautiful "burgundy" version of Marcie and of course Bravissimo carries that as well, so I knew it was time to place an order.
I'll be going over both bras in this single post since I've covered Marcie a boat load already.
It's been too long since my last post! Between work deadlines, new interests and my vacation in July, I've only lurked around the bra community without much interaction. To be fair, I haven't gotten any new bras until yesterday, but I do have a couple ideas for other posts, so it's not a very good excuse. :p
It's good to be back, though!
Getting right to it...
The Lily is no stranger to me and my blog. I've had numerous colors and sizes of it and so I initially debated on mentioning this one. However, once I tried it on, I felt like there was enough difference between this one and the others that it might be useful information for someone with a similar shape and situation.
