Used to fit

Yay!! Just received this bra like 15 minutes ago and I already love it. This just goes to show how important correct fitting is. I tried this bra in size 30D previously, and tried the original Porcelain (Panache 3376) in 28E, and they both looked awful on me because of poor fit. (See my other review here: http://bratabase.com/browse/panache/porcelain-molded-seamless-underwire-3376/28E/ )

Finally, in size 30DD I have a winner. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have a nice t-shirt bra in my size. If you've seen my other bras, you know it's been a struggle.

I hope that in the future Panache will choose to make this bra in band size 28 (like the original Porcelain), because this bra has to be fastened on the middle or tightest hook for me. Most of my bras are size 30, but this band is very stretchy (see measurements).

The foam lining is thin (about 1/8" ) and light -- just enough for "camouflage" as it were. The straps, comfortable; and though they look very wide set, for some reason they feel good on me and I'm not very big. Could have something to do with them being somewhat cushioned.

The lace is gorgeous and sexy, especially for a t-shirt bra! It is also very soft and non-irritating. Definitely no machine washing for this baby. The cups are very round... that t-shirt shape which is becoming an American classic (our Continental cousins don't seem to be so bothered by seams and a natural cone shape as we American girls generally are).

Summertime is here, and this should be a great item for the hot weather because the cups have a cotton blend lining and the bra overall is lightweight. My Tisha bra (Le Mystere 955), though flattering, feels like an industrial clunker next to the Porcelain Lace. I'll be having fun with this one.

Purchased from Her Room in late Spring 2010. (Incidentally, this will be my last order from this retailer for a long, long time. I will not recommend them because of customer service issues. Don't worry though! This bra is also available at Bare Necessities, Breakout Bras, and Nordstrom, among others.)

*** UPDATE ***
I've been wearing this bra for a couple weeks now and I still love it... I even ordered another one from Breakout Bras. Highly recommended.

This bra is not owned any more

    Great review of a pretty & comfy bra. I hope to own it soon too if they bring out more colors! ;) Have to agree with Herroom.com as a total nuisance having now dealt with their incompetent and snail-paced customer service for a few weeks now. Good bra find!!
