    So the first time I had tried this on in a shop I fell in love with the Juna! Really liked the half cup pattern and how my boobs looked in it.

    Remember that Panache bras tend to run at least one or even two sizes smaller than freya brands, so sizing up from freya in your usual band size is necessary. I wear 28d in freya but 28dd/e in panache. The cleo maddie however does not need sizing up as they tend to run large.

    The wires lay flat against my sternum but not the Central gore. I quad boob slightly in the left cup (shown in picture) but okay in the right cup. The lace trims don't lie flat against my skin but this is not a problem. In terms of appearance it definitely gives a good uplift although the vertical seems are just slightly see-through under tops.

    Very comfortable to wear - I can definitely see this as an everyday bra! In terms of quality - panache and freya are still superior to the cleo range...!

    • Did you try a 28E for comparison?
      Juna runs small in the cup and the quadboob situation looks quite notable, way more than would be tolerable in a well-fitting bra.

    Alright, perhaps single vertically seamed bras aren't entirely a lost cause on me. I suppose they just need wearing in, so long as they're the right depth.

    I bought this well used, not too stretched out. This fit me much better than the brand new 30D Juna, and the flattened seam meant that there wasn't extra room along the seam.

    It's not a perfect fit on me. It's a little too closed on top for me. The lace wrinkles, but only in the bottom half of the lace. The top half lies flat. It's no quadboob, but my roots are clearly a bit too tall for the cups.

    The ... width is still good, the straps are still good, and the band has stretched enough that I'm wearing this on the second hooks straight off. The gore initially put pressure on my sternum that wasn't uncomfortable but very noticeable. Fortunately, the wires are flexible enough that I could bend the wires away while wearing the bra. I've found that occasionally I need to rebend the gore outwards, no more than once a day, but it's not a problem.

    Honestly, this bra is so comfortable, I'll probably keep buying it going forward, even if the cups aren't perfect for me. It fits well enough otherwise.

    This is a very nice bra, the fabric feels luxurious and of good quality. I am not fond of the lace because it is not positioned very well in relation to the cup. It doesn't affect the look of the bra under clothes. The wires poked me very badly, it was painful to wear the bra for even just 5 minutes, but it was the wrong size. I'm sure if you were the correct size it would be fine. I just need wider cups.
    All in all, I recommend this bra, just make sure to get the correct size.

    • Don't forget to scoop and swoop! I can clearly see breast tissue that is not in the cup, but under your arms behind the cup. Which was why it hurt do badly.

    If molded cups just aren't workin' out for you and you want something more structured than an unpadded balconnet, Juna might be for you.
    I read this bra is great for shallow breasts. I am full on top with average projection and it works for me as well: the open-on-top construction that makes it good for shallow gals also keeps it from cutting in on me!
    The 28DD doesn't quite get all my tissue on the sides, but one cup size up in a sister cut (28E Darcy) fits me quite nicely.

    The cups definitely run small. I'm a 28C/28D and the 28DD is very close to fitting me. Aside from the lace edge doing it's own thing (due to poor design), the only issue I have is that the center of the cup is too deep for me. I'm a bit more shallow than this bra.
    I might fit the 28D if the wires don't get too much more narrow in a smaller size. Not sure if I'll bother though since I'm unsure about the shape this bra gives and the annoying lace that doesn't lay flat.

    Very comfortable and gives me a nice rounded shape from the side. I think the cup is too small, but I'm having a hard time telling due to the thickness of the padding/lining. It isn't padded like a push-up, but the opaque part of the cup has a thick padding that feels kind of like memory foam. The top definitely cuts in to my breast, though the lace provides some camouflage. I can't tell if I'm filling out the bottom part of the cup completely, though it definitely looks more projected than my breasts normally do on their own. It also makes my breasts look even taller than they already are.
    This bra does feel and look very nice, albeit in that Victoria's Secret big boobs pushing out of a bra way. The fabric is very soft and silky, and the padded front straps are very comfy too.

    I think I am right on the edge for 28DD/28E with this bra. The lace very nearly sits flat, which would apparently indicate that the bra is too small, but that is only on my larger breast, so I think I'll stick with this size. The major issue I have with this bras (and all my bras so far) is that the wires need to come a little higher to hold in my side-boob. It looks very nice under clothes, though.

    This is a good everyday bra. It was tricky to find the right fit - if the lace is lying flat, the bra is probably too small. If the lace doesn't quite lay flat, the bra probably fits (seems strange, but it is a good rule of thumb for this bra). What I like about this bra: in my size (28DD) the top is open enough and doesn't cup into my breast tissue.
