Used to fit
I persisted with this bra until I found the best fit in the style because I absolutely adore the look. It's got a slight retro feel to it, and it's stretchy, nude lace. Just lovely to look at and practical enough that it works for everyday wear under nearly all outfits.
I tried this on in store in my normal Panache/Cleo size (30G) and the top edge of the cup pinched right into my soft breast tissue - possibly the worst case of quad boob I've seen in years! In 1 cup size up, this is a pretty good fit.
The fit mirrors the fit of the Panache Tango (but without the ugly fern fabric). Unfortunately, even though the lace used in the Idina (search for Indina on Figleaves - they have it spelt differently) nice and stretchy, the edging trim along the top of the bra counteracts any stretch in the top half of the cup.
The profile is a little wide for me (same as Tango), but the underwires don't bother me at all (must be using the new, shorter Panache underwires) and theres only a tiny bit of unfilled fabric under my arms. It's a natural look, rounded but not too uplifted.
I've worn this under slightly see-through, stretchy knits tops and it's not quite as invisible as a moulded, nude bra. But it's probably the closest thing to a tshirt bra.
Go up a cup size with this one. I recommend it. Oh and the briefs are firm, secure and awesome (and follow the slightly retro look)!
