After I tried the Parfait Adriana, I became interested in trying more bralettes from Parfait. Dalis is another great bralette from their current collection and is sold in bra sizing. However, note that this is really meant to be a comfort bralette, so the expectation is that this is great for wearing around the house, but wouldn't provide the kind of shaping, support, and coverage you might want for wearing outside of the house. With that in mind, let's talk about Dalis!

Dalis is made from a supersoft modal blend, which is pretty different from the nylon, mesh, and lace you typically find in the bralette world. The entire bra except the lace trim on the cups and straps is made from the same fabric, which is silky and comfortable against the skin. The construction is a little reminiscent of Adriana, but Parfait has made a few changes here. The band is a wide piece of elastic encased in a channel. Note that the first Dalis I ordered had a problem with the elastic immediately creasing within the casing, while the second one I ordered did not. I have no idea how or why this happened as they seem to be made exactly the same way. The band is firm yet comfortable, and feels TTS. In this size, there are three hooks, which you never see in a bralette in this size range.

The cups are set onto a curved piece above the band, acting as a cradle. The cups have a long bottom dart to the center of the cup, and the cups are rather small, with lace creating the center gore portion. The main thing is that the cups fit differently from Adriana, and seem to run a size small. 30DD feels too small for me, and I think that 30E would be better. This was the opposite of my experience with Adriana, where I ended up sizing down in the cup because the V neckline was cut too high. So, unless you are pretty shallow, I would keep your normal band size and go up one cup size. I also found that the seam of the cup didn't quite sit at the right place on my body, but this is a minor issue as I plan to just wear this at home anyway.

There is a lot of lace trim on the bra, so if you are into a clean, minimal aesthetic, this might be too much lace for you. However, the lace is soft, comfortable, and helps add detail to an otherwise simple bralette. The lace extends onto both sides of the straps as well as along the upper edge of the band in the back. There are no other trims.

This is a super comfortable bralette that actually provides support for small band sizes. While I can't speak to if this will provide enough support for larger breasts, it's a great option for small band people who can't fit into standard alphanumeric options designed for 32+ bands.

(Due to the construction, the cup is extremely difficult to measure. Note that cup measurements are just an approximation, you will get different results if you measure the cups differently.)
