My namesake bra is one of the most comfortable bras I have tried on. It feels as if I have put on one of my Panache sports bras, which are my favorites in terms of comfort and "holding" power. The padded cups have the same feel and thickness, but they are sexier and prettier than a sports bra, as they should.
The straps are large compared to other bras I have, and combined with the large band (which closes with 4 hooks!) and the sturdiness of the construction, it makes for a very "secure" bra. I can totally see myself wearing that bra everyday. But as I have tried it on for only a few minutes, I don't know about the quality in the long-term. As it is I can vouch for its excellent construction and comfort. But can you expect less from a bra designed in France ? (what, am I not allowed a little bit of patriotic love? lol)
I bought this bra in the bronze color, which looks a little bit darker than on the brand pictures, but it's a lovely color. It could have had more satin on the center part of the bra because as it is there is only satin on the outer part of the cups and it is a little bit less glamorous than what I expected.
I like that the straps are black, it is more discreet under clothing.
Unfortunately the band is so big I can close it to the last hooks and the center gore doesn't lay flat on my sternum. In addition to that, I have a small quadboob effect which means I need one cup larger. I am going to return this bra and order the same one in 28J.
I also have the high-waisted knickers in 2XL which are also a little bit big, but they are very cute and comfortable as well and I don't feel like I have put on my grandma"s panties.
