Fantastic bra! Padding is light and flexible; lace is non-irritating, shape is round and uplifted. The color is a bit different from what I expected: the promo photos seemed to show a neon yellow with slight green tinge; however, in person the background color is closer to chartreuse. The straps and lace are somewhere between salmon and watermelon. The cup seams lie very flat and are discreet.

One question though: why, oh why, do Panache/Cleo stubbornly continue to skimp on their straps?? Reviews on here are loaded with complaints about the straps. On practically every Panache/Cleo bra I have had, the straps have to be let out all the way. On this bra, the straps adjust barely long enough to even be wearable, and I am only 5' 2"! (Note: Straps were unwearable as is -- see update below.)

Otherwise, the fit of this bra is fantastic -- band and cups are both perfect. This is quite possibly the best-fitting bra I've ever worn and definitely in the top 2 or 3.

Darcy is a variant of the "wildly popular" Cleo Juna (6461) and I will buy Juna and its clones again.

*** UPDATE ***
I ended up having to lengthen the straps on this bra by attaching an additional piece of strapping at the back. I happened to have an old unwearable VS bra with pink straps that matched, so I used pieces of them. So, now my Cleo Darcy has back straps with VS's logo all over them!

I have other Juna reviews here: 30DD - Cleo » Juna (6461) and here: 28DD - Cleo » Juna Balconnet Bra (6461) .
