Panache's 'Andorra' is one of my very first properly fitted bras. Having a 25.5'' chest, 28'' bands that run tight are as close as it gets to a proper fit in my case, at least for the time being. (I have been judged to be a 26DD/E at a recent bra fitting).
This bra is very nice.The quality of the lace is very good - it's soft, doesn't scratch or irritate my skin, and looks beautiful on. I bought the deep red 'Scarlet' version - it's much darker than in the stock photos, which I like.
Aesthetics aside, the fit of is judged by me to be satisfactory - for an unpadded model, the projection and side support it gives is impressive. Being a shallow/wide + tall root/wide-set/uneven silhouette type, I feel surprisingly good wearing something this revealing.
The fit of this bra is very forgiving due to the stretchy lace on top of the cups - take note if you have uneven breasts (they won't be noticeable while wearing this-the lace will be flush with both of them).
Two things I'm slightly in two minds about, which make me wonder whether this is the right model/size for me, are:
1. This is supposedly a 'full cup' model, however the cups aren't that tall. They end roughly where my Comexim half-cups would end - meaning, this fits me more like a half-cup than a full-cup. Not sure whether I should perhaps try it in 28DD (but then again, the cup could end up being too deep) - I just thought it was supposed to cover more surface area, if that makes any sense.
2. The shape this model gives me, is, as other reviewers said above, ever-so-slightly pointy. In my case, it seems to be attributable to the fact that being made of thin lace, it doesn't really disguise nipples that well. I've read that this sometimes happens with FOT silhouette types (though I consider myself FOB, so that theory could not be applicable here).
