This remains my all time favorite UK bra. I loved Masquerade bras, and was disappointed when they were discontinued. The fit is great, especially if you need the narrow wires typically found in Polish brands. The fabrics and embroidery are all miles above typical UK brands.

First of all, this bra is really pretty. I love the embroidery and the contrast trim. It has a really decent amount of projection to it, especially for a padded bra. Unfortunately, I do not have enough upper fullness to fill it out properly, which leaves an annoying ridge under my clothes. Too bad for me.

I have been quite hesitant to try Panache brand bras. I am not really sure why. I guess because all the pictures are of skinny women, I have never thought of them as a brand for larger ladies. It was only after finding bratabase and reading reviews, recommendations on here that I decided to try a Panache product and the Delphi is my first.
First off the bra is very attractive. I have the black with gold accents with matching brief. My husband says it is very regal looking. The materials seem to be of very good quality. The bra feels ... quite sturdy, no loose threads, uneven seams etc.
I really like the padded straps but I am a huge fan of thick straps so someone who likes thinner straps may not like this feature. I was hesitant to try this bra due to the fact the straps are not fully adjustable but this is not an issue at all as it offers much more room in the straps than I thought it would.
I found the cups to be a little larger than previous brands (Elomi and Curvy Kate) and smaller than Fantasie's cups in an H. The band is very firm and tight which I like. It is not uncomfortable but I did have some back-fat spilling over the band. I may have been better off with a 36 in this bra, however as I am still losing weight I am sure the band will fit me better with time. I viewed the two hooks as a potential problem but even with just two hooks the support this bra gives is amazing.
The bra gives me a very rounded profile and my breasts sit in their natural position, unlike Curvy Kate which seems to squish them towards the center. My breasts are actually minimized under clothes with this bra. The bottoms of my breasts fit the cup perfectly, so Panache's wider wires seem to suit me well. It is extremely comfortable to wear. The seam does tend to show under my scrubs/t-shirts but not nearly like the Curvy Kate tease me does.
My test of a bra is a 12 hour shift in it. I wore the Delphi last night and was seriously surprised by its comfort and durability. No back-ache at all! While the material of the bra is thick it did not feel too heavy at all. In fact I forgot I had it on. I went my entire 12 hours without having to adjust it once! The bra did not stretch out at all! My only issue is that it is so pretty, I am not sure I could ever use it as an everyday/work bra.
Overall this bra gives my full on top, extremely saggy, wide spaced and wide at the root breasts a beautiful rounded shape, better than any other bra I have tried so far. It seems to be of good quality and was extremely comfortable. Overall this is the best fitting bra I have tried so far.
