I love the Panache Porcelain model and I'm pretty sure Maddie draws much inspiration from that iconic t-shirt bra. Maddie is indeed very, very much like the Panache Porcelain Viva; with a a few small differences in shaping and details. First of all, typical to Cleo, the band is stretchier. After my experience with Juna's incredibly unstable band, I ordered 28 in Maddie, instead of my usual 30. Maddie's cups are, again, quite like Porcelain Viva, but Maddie's cups are "open" (similar to Juna only in this respect). Also, Maddie's cups are definitely "padded". If they were even the slightest bit thicker they would feel bulky to me. (I prefer the very lightly lined Porcelain cups). It's highly likely that I will buy more Maddies, but I think the 30DD size will be work better at keeping my boobs from migrating out the sides of the cups. Maddie's band is firmer an tighter than Juna's and overall it feels more supportive.

I normally wear a 30D, and based on reviews went one band size down and one cup size up with the Maddie. The cups are STILL too small, which is incredible to me. The band fits comfortably even if it seems to be riding up a bit in the photo (that's from me desperately yanking on the straps trying to give more space to the top of the cups so I could lie to myself about it fitting), and the cups are incredibly soft, so I'd be willing to try a 28F if not for the fact the gore is too wide as well. It sits flat, but has to push my breast tissue out of the way to do so, which only serves to cause even more quadboob toward the center of the cup.
All of this is a shame, because the bra is VERY comfortable otherwise, looks quite well constructed to last a long time, and I am still on a quest for a skin-tone t-shirt bra that fits just right.

The underwires on this bra are wide, and the cups are shallow, both of which made it a good fit for me. It also produces a noticeably lifted and rounded shape, which I was thrilled by!
Even though it's marketed as a T-shirt bra, the combination of thick padding and the lacy detail on the upper edge of the cups means that it doesn't really give a smooth appearance under thin or form-fitting tops, but works well under thicker or more structured tops. The only feature that I wasn't entirely happy with were the straps, which are very wide set.

At the time I purchased this bra, I measured 28DD and thought that Maddie in 28DD fit well but the cups were a bit shallow, so I tried to size up to 28E to see if I could get some more room in the cups. However, the 28E at the time was much too large on me. Maddie is already a wide style with wide-set straps, and in 28DD I get gapping when I move. The 28E had a bit more depth and cup height, but I couldn't fill out the upper cup and the gapping issue was much worse. This is a very shallow-friendly style and doesn't really suit my average projected shape.
I'd like to get my hands on this size again as I now measure 28E, but I also feel that this kind of open cup with wide set straps is difficult on me as the gapping issue is inevitable due to my narrow frame.

Nice bra for wide and tall roots with shallow projection.
Pros: holds shape very well, gives a flattering rounded shape under clothing, strong support
Cons: straps sit far out on the cups and can dig into armpits, wires are very stiff until the bra is well-worn, the lace border shows up under thinner fabrics

This bra was my first attempt at sizing myself. I only chose an E cup because I mistakenly thought my cups couldn’t possibly be as big as I measured, but they were. This bra has always been laughably too small for me, but I tried to force it to work briefly before I realized it was never going to be comfortable for me. At this point in time, I can only get about a third of my boob into each cup. The bra itself though is soft, durable, and cute looking, though a pretty shallow cut.

It's my go-to bra right now as my body is changing so rapidly. Sure, it's too shallow, sure it's way too wide, but it doesn't hurt me. So pah!!

Review is based on a trial, not on long-term wear. But! The bra fit me well, one of my best two. 28dd, which I wear usually, was way too small in the cups, so I sized up to 28E. The band is nice and tight. The cups may turn out to be a problem in the long run: when I stand up straight, they lie very flat against my breasts, but if I inhale extensively or start bending, the quadboob steps in. But it's a nice smooth look for everything I've tried this bra with, and the moulded cup gives a great lift.

Not enough immediate projection, and a little too small.

I have yet to actually go out and wear it, but from how it feels and looks like just trying it on is surprising. It feels very nice, if only a bit tight because of the unstretched band. The gore lies flat. And I'm pretty sure that it encompasses my breast tissue entirely. It holds my bigger breast almost perfectly, and just a tad bigger on my smaller breast. But I cannot comment on how it wears yet.
