The Lily has been one of my go-to bras for a long time. It gives a rounded shape with a slight peak and it's smooth under most clothing. I really wish they had continued to make it, and made it in neutral colors! I don't understand the decision to discontinue when it seems so popular.
I think this would make a great first unlined bra for someone who's used to molded, since the fabric is so smooth. The design is also really cute, I love the blue and pink.
The comfort is okay; a little problematic for me with my sensitive skin and sensory issues because of two things that Panache/Cleo seems consistent with: high gore and elastic around the band. The gore I can bend outward but the elastic I can't fix. I wish they would switch to a more all-over stretch fabric to distribute the weight better because the elastic really cuts in/chafes.
The fit has become more tricky as my asymmetry has gotten more pronounced--my right side has a little wrinkle at the top and the larger left side is flattened a bit. For now it doesn't seem very noticeable through clothing so I'm not terribly bothered.
IMO the wires are average width and it's one of the more rounded, projected bras that aren't Polish. I just really wish it didn't have the Elastic of Death.
