Despite this bra being a Panache build/design (Panache straps are too wide for me), I love this bra. The lace has a wonderful liner that prevents most of the itchiness. It's very supportive and, mostly, very comfortable. There are a few spots that are a bit harsh at this point, but the bra is still new and I expect them to "break in" - mostly these spots are where the straps attach. This particular Eleanor is bright red, with a teal and yellow/gold bow, and as a result is a bit much for me (it was part of a grab bag, so I didn't select the color), but ... I would absolutely buy again in a color more to my liking.
I do think the bra is a bit "plain" for a style bra like this. The only non-red is that little bow. More integration of the offset color, or choosing a more subtle offset color and using it significantly, would help with the interest of the bra. This basic bra in fleshtone or black as a "intentionally boring, subtle bra" would be fantastic.
