Hasn't set fit

Bought this for picky teenager. It's a petite-framed, fuller coverage bralette made from 2 layers of super soft, medium weight fine knit cotton. The straps are 15" long but these are in 2 parts, the first half on the front is 7" long and has soft lace trim sewn onto it, in the back is a .65" wide lingerie satin strap with a j-hook so the bralette can convert to racerback. Sneaaaky, I didn't know that it could do this.Very nice surprise as it's a hard to find feature in a bra.

All the seams are expertly bound with the same quality of elastic sandwiched inside, with double row of zigzag stitching pressing them neatly down. The underband is some kind of 1" wide elastic encased completely by the facing cotton knit. Both the top and bottom of the cotton casing are stitched securely to prevent the band from rubbing or the elastic from wearing through it. I'm impressed by all the thoughtful touches that went into designing this wireless bra!

No bubbling, rippling or weird unevenness when the bralette is at rest, or being stretched anywhere. Dalis doesn't bind in, wow. Somebody got heard or paid to figure this one out. Yeah, we're still kinda salty about the lack of consistency of elastic ease among the textile choices of curvy kate, freya, and panache/cleo styles.

The cup has a central vertical dart which is stitched to the inner layer with a miniscule 1/16" straight seamline, that has some stretch to avoid inducing in-cup quadding. This lower cup dart seam is 4" long, so if one has a shorter than average bottom cup depth (length from inframammary fold to nips) the cup might have pointiness above the fullest part of a breast. I did get the cup dart seam to stretch to just under 5" so Dalis should be ok for moderately projected, evenly full shapes.
The gore and wing height are pretty good coverage, however some of this is the lace trimming. It's a forgiving edging to smooth things out but not a really supportive material in itself. I find this gives me a more subtle 'side muffin' silhouette since my boobs grow fullest from the underarm and side area so usually tend to squish out of a bra there. YMMV I wouldn't classify it spanx levels of control, but the streamling it does is, is not nothing either.

I'm thinking hard about things to kvetch about here. I think that the pattern could have a little more gathering from where the bottom of the cup darts begin to give the lower inner cup more space, and lower inner breast somewhere to be. Since it's easy to get squished in a bralette, especially one that's cut a little taller like this one.

Honestly we're both impressed, and really hope that more colourways and prints come out in Dalis.
