This bra is amazing. Plenty of immediate and centre projection in the cup, gore tacks but doesn't dig, the cups are entirely* stretch lace so fit a variety of shapes happily, they also have a peach coloured mesh backing so they're not too sheer (although might look a bit strange if light peach isn't a nude for you). Wires generally stay in my IMF, which isn't a small feat for me! The material itself feels lovely on the cups and the band, the size tag is a tiny bit annoying as it's quite thick. The Petrol colour is also lovely, a subtle navy that's a bit warmer than the photos.
(ETA: Not entirely, but more forgiving than most Panache bras I've tried. Similar to Cleo Blake)
The centre gore is very wide especially at the bottom - this is a perfect shape for me and my splayed breasts, but if yours are close together this will likely be problematic. The shape under clothes is quite natural, a little bit minimised but not too much, and also forward pointy but not ridiculously pushed together. The straps are quite thin, I find them very comfortable but may not be ideal for heavier busts.
The wings on this bra are high - I think it's the boundary point of where they start being problematic for me. The cut of the cups/straps also makes my Tail of Spence quite prominent, this doesn't bother me personally though. The wires are also on the wider side of my comfort zone, I'd say the regular Panache width (narrow-to-average).
Band definitely is TTS, a tiny bit tight on first wear but not to the point of discomfort. I'd be inclined to say the cups run a bit small - I get a smidge of quadding as I'm more FOT, and could probably do with a cup size up but it's not bad enough to bother me. The elastic on the top of the cup isn't tight enough to cause any problems here, fortunately.
Overall, definitely recommend for even fullness, even if centre fullness is an issue.
