    I measure 29 inches under the bust and usually wear 28-30 bands. My 30 bands have been feeling too tight recently, so I wanted a more comfortable and looser band. Unfortunately, this band is very loose. I want to say that it is loose for a 32, but it really is true to size and very stretchy. However, this bra only goes up to an H cup and I fear a 30H would be too small in the cups. This bra is too wide for my boobs, probably because my frame is not a 32-band frame. The depth is perfect. Center gores rarely lie flat on my full ... in the center breasts, but this one does very comfortably. I quadboob a bit in the middle of the bra, and gape a bit on the sides towards the top because I have shallow tissue on the sides of my breasts. I wish this bra was a little lower-cut. I think that a 30H would feel better on my armpits and migrated tissue, but I have a feeling I would quadboob quite a bit. This bra is definitely not for my shape, but it still looks great under clothes and alone. This bra provides the most coverage out of all of my bras, but still provides some lovely cleavage. I don't have any other bras in a fun print so I feel like I really need this bra even though it's not perfect. It is very comfortable and soft. The material comfort outweighs the slight backache I have from wearing a loose band. I may invest in a rixie clip or alter the band. Tightening the band may exasperate the wideness issue I have with this bra.

    This bra is officially a clone of the Juna, but I have a Juna, and two flamingo print Darcies, all in size 32H, and there are two very clear differences in this particular size and colour.
    The Juna has only one vertical seam on each cup, but both my flamingo Darcies have two seams (I've uploaded some photos to show this). I think this makes the cup more projected - it doesn't crumple at the base on me, which foam bras in general do, and the Juna does.
    The Juna also has only half-adjustable straps, because the straps are made of two sections joined by a metal ring. The Darcy straps have no ring, so they can be adjusted over the whole length.
    It's a pity this bra was discontinued, as it fits me well (though a 30HH would have been even better if they'd made it, as long as it had the 2-seamed shape).

    Nearly identical fit to Cleo Juna. I'd hoped it would work for me, but Cleo and I still don't really get along.

    Absolutely adorable though! I love the flamingo print, and the yellow-green and pink color combo. A really fun, playful look.

    A good T-shirt bra for me; very much like the Juna. Same fit, only cuter. Runs larger in the band than the unpadded Cleos so I ought to have sized down to a 30HH because it will stretch out. Wires are also quite a bit wider than the unpadded styles.
    Only 2 hooks, which is stupid in this cup size - but it manages to lift and support VERY well.
    Many people struggle with the lace along the top of the cups, but my boobs are round enough that I don't.
    Cups also have plenty of immediate projection.
    Flamingos are adorable, and the straps are cute.

    Used to fit

    Bought this one from a fellow Bratabasian. Cut & sized like the Juna (which I like very much) but suffers from the same issue as my Panache Andorra full-cups: the wires seem a little too short for the channel resulting in a weird crease where the fabric pulls the underwire channel towards the front. In the Andorras, I thought it was because the cups were too small (they are) but the Darcy fits better, so that's not it. I don't know if it's just this particular bra, or if this is a common condition in the Panache line; it is much less significant on my Juna's. Other than that, it's cute, comfy and surprisingly practical given the busy colorway & lace along the top of the cups. I like that it's lined, gives good shape, feels supportive. I wish it had 3-4 hooks & a tad more lift. Could do with an HH maybe.
    A keeper.

    Good everyday t-shirt bra, but with a few flaws. As many people have mentioned about this and other Cleo Juna variants, the lace along the top of the cup does not lie flat when the cup is the correct size. Also, the straps are a bit wide-set for me, and rub along my arms. The cups seem to run true to size, and so does the band. The wires do not poke. The fabric is soft and smooth, and the light lining/padding makes it comfortable to wear.

    the first time i saw this bra i knew i had to have it! i love the print, its so pretty! i would say it is similiar to rihanna and ellie but the cups are a bit different, kinda higher on the side, on the armpit, which is better for my armpit fat. it makes my boobs look a lot bigger than they normally are though (bigger than the rihanna and ellie as well). i havent worn it a lot yet so i cant say that much more about.

    This is a nice bra. I feel the cups are on the verge of being too separate for me. Also, the cups are a bit too small for me. The fabric is lovely and comfortable though!

    I also think the band is a bit too long for me and I really need more than just two hooks at the back for more band stability. The band just keeps riding up in the back.

    Just not for me.
