    The wires are too wide, but it's not uncomfortable like in some other bras. Reviews say it runs loose in the band and shallow in the cups, which I found to be true, so I went a band down and a cup size up (28H as opposed to my regular 30G). In this size, my breasts fill out the front of the cups almost perfectly, no spillage anywhere. The sides are empty, but thanks to the firm padding it still supports well (almost like a side support bra, I suppose). I also don't have a problem with a lack of projection at the bottom; my boobs are resting nicely in the cups. The pink lace trim doesn't lay flat but it doesn't show through shirts like you'd think. The vertical seams are well-hidden which makes it almost invisible under clingy fabric. The shape is nicely rounded like most Cleos. Overall a good bra, I give it 7/10 boobs.

    Fit is very similar to the Cleo Sadie in 28H that I have. Construction wise, the biggest different is that the straps on the Darcy are fully adjustable, whereas on the Sadie they are not.

    The band is good and tight, if I were to wear it I would use an extender to extend by 1 hook for the first few weeks/months of wear.

    The right cup on the Darcy sits a bit too high and cuts into the front of my arm. It's not the underwire or strap, its the actual cup. (This is not an issue for me on the Sadie.) I would consider just dealing with it, but I paid $55 for Darcy, and for that price I don't want to be messing with issues like that.

    This bra will be returned, but if in the future I happen to find one for a good deal, I may consider it again.

    I have previously reviewed the Cleo Rihanna Bra, which is essentially the same bra with a different pattern.

    The Darcy fits pretty similar. I went with the same size (28H) and it worked well. Darcy does seem to be a little tighter than Rihanna. I could still wear it right away, but it will likely take some more breaking in.

    I really like the pattern on this bra. It's a little different and the colors are pretty bold. The straps are fully adjustable, which they are not on the Rihanna.
