    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) .

    This bra is adorable, and it's fit is "close enough" for me. I do get "quad boobs" and I dislike the short sides, but I'd put up with a lot more just for the flamingoes. What a cheerful summer bra!

    This was one of the first bras I got after getting measured a 28DD (which after self assessment I have gone down to a 28D). It is so adorable it just didn't fit me. I love the fun print. The padding is about 1/4" thick. Straps have felt like texture on the side that sits on your skin so it's not itchy and the fabric overall is very comfy. Straps are also fully adjustable. The cups give a rounded shape. Band feels tighter than other brands' 28", as per usual with the Cleo line it seems. I find that the color looks a little yellowish green in person - like a highlighter. But it is still super cute.

    I bought this for a friend so I can't really comment on the fit, as it is not my size. From the looks of it (and my own 28D), this fits similarly to Juna as expected.

    I have a wide root and shallow boobs. I do need flat cups but not extraordinary wide wires. I almost don't have any volume on top. I usually wear this bra when my boobs are smaller during the first weeks after my mestruation.

    The fabric is really soft and comfortable as the cups inside is lined with cotton. The band runs normal while the cups seem to be a little smaller then usual 28DD ones.

    Even though this bra technically does not fit, I love it. I purposely purchased a smaller size so that I could get noticeable "lift". Cleo's 30DD usually fits me just right, with some support and coverage, but very little "enhancement". A 28F would likely have fit better than the 28DD, however, I couldn't find this adorable Flamingo print anywhere in 28F. Overall, it doesn't matter that much. This bra is so cute, and soft, and fun I enjoy wearing it. I love the shaping and support, and the "quad" will show only if I wear skin tight shirts with this bra, so I don't. This bra is extremely comfortable, and lightweight, which is just what I need for the hot Arizona summer.
