    *Size*: runs a size small
    I would recommend getting a size up in band in this style. I'm a generic 28E and, after looking at the measurements, I got a 30E offline. Luckily, my intuition was correct and it fits. The darcy runs about a size too small in the cup and band.

    *Fit*: perfect for my wide-rooted, pointy boobs
    This bra fits my wide-rooted, pointy boobs very well, best out of all the ones I have tried so far. After scooping and swooping, it keeps all my boob in the cups without any shifting, it doesn't gape or quadboob at the top, and it is fill up all the ... way to the underwires. My boobs have a little distance between them in the middle, so the gore tacks easily and doesn't cut into my breasts, and it doesn't stab me in the sternum either! I have to put the band on the smallest hook since I'm normally a 28 and this is kind of a stretchy bra, but it runs very small so it's actually perfect. Doesn't migrate up my back. Since it's a balconette it tends to want to cut into my peck-boob fat on the sides, but I'm not holding that against it since it's my fault I bought another balconette knowing that I have very narrow shoulders.

    *Comfort*: nice daily bra
    Very comfortable bra. The fabric is smooth, the straps are wide and sturdy, and the lace actually doesn't itch. The lining on the inside of the cups is soft and the inside seem is covered with satin so it doesn't itch. My only issue is one that I have with every padded bra.....they're so damn hot! Ugh! If its warm out I end up sweating in between and on the sides of my boobs. Ah well, otherwise its very comfortable. However, if you have a problem with gores stabbing you I would suggest bending the very top of the middle underwires a bit. If I sit up straight or stand up it isn't a problem, but if I slouch (hem hem whoops) it kinda hurts, so I bent them ever so slightly and it feels much better to sit lazily now.

    *Appearance*: cute!
    Very pretty. I got the black and red and white one, which has a heart and dot pattern all around, red lace along the tops of the cup, a black bow in the middle, and black straps and lining. I think I'll chop the bow off though because I hate bows.

    *Quality*: excellent
    This bra is very well made. All of the stitches are intact, there is lining inside the cups AND the band, the lace is evenly sewn and sits flat against the breast, the straps are sturdy, the underwire is made of strong metal, the hooks are well-anchored, and the patterned fabric sticks and stretches to the form of the bra without wrinkling. The tag doesn't even itch.

    *Stretch*:
    The band is pretty stretchy, but not nearly as stretchy as my Cleo Bonnie. The elastic in the band seems a bit heavier duty and the patterned fabric seems to restrict some of the stretching. Again, this band runs small so don't plan on stretching the thing a lot to fit.

    *Wear*:
    So far, don't know. Will Update.

    *Final Judgement*:
    Awesome!! Very good bra, with the exception of some slight inaccuracies in sizing. Works great for my wide-root, pointy boobs. Would probably work even better for someone with slightly wider shoulders.

    One of my best fitting bras. My usual size of 28e was sadly it too small in the cup. I couldn't find a 28f, so settled for a 30e. I'm wearing it on the tightest hook already, but the cups are perfection.

    I love the color scheme and flamingo print!

    I accidentally ordered the wrong size. Of the four that came in the grab bag that I ordered the wrong size of, this one fit the best. The cups are just too small. I wouldn't have chosen this particular pattern, but hey...it is kind of fun. I am going to buy this bra in the right size.
