    30F

    Didn't fit

    My shape is low set, slightly pendulous, and short and narrow rooted.

    This bra came to me pre-loved but in mint condition from rachaelll (thanks). The colour is dark pink and reminds me of 65FF - Ewa Michalak » Chp Red Wine that I used to own. There is decorative lace along the front of the straps, and along the band to the clasps. The only thing is, the lace on the straps like to fold over on itself, so you have to flatten it (at least I did). The band measures to a true 30" band, but it doesn't feel overly stretchy... ... probably because of the lace that covers the band. The straps adjust long enough on my tall frame, but they are extended all the way out in the back. The shape is lovely and rounded, but obviously too small on me. (I think I had a growth spurt because the last 3 I tried were all too small). I'll save this one for my "low tide" days and for when I lose 5 pounds again. It is very reminiscent of my 30F - Panache » Porcelain Grace Sweetheart Moulded Bra (7371) . The only real difference I could see from measurements was that this ardour cup is shorter by about 0.5cm. It's a molded cup that lays smoothly and looks good under a tee, but it is slightly shallow. I actually think that the panache porcelain grace might be a little bit more projected at the wire, which may be why I can currently wear it without bubbling over (that and the additional height of the cup).

    Overall the bra is great quality, great comfort, shallow, and pretty.

      It’s so beautiful. I tried a very purple one last year. I’m sure I would have to size up too. It fit me then but I’m larger now.

    • 2

      Yeah I think you'd definitely have to size up right now Calluna . I could use a bigger size right now too, but I'm gonna hold onto this one for now anyways, because I think it would fit well if I was a bit smaller... and I fluctuate sometimes depending on my weight, so there's no point in getting rid of it.

      Backup bras for rainy days is always a good thing! It saves a lot of heartache (and backache, & breast-ache) during size changes instead of having to wait for new ones to show up.

      MamaPagan exactly! I've sold off a few bras I now regret getting rid of because I would have fit them now! Grrr. Hindsight is 50/50 as they say.

      Wilderness1 it is the same here...I kind of wish I still had my 30FF Bardot now.

      Always keep a one size valiant stash on hand! You will thank yourself later. :-D

    30F

    Hasn't set fit

    The backlog continues...

    Tried this beauty on when I was visiting a friend in Vancouver this past spring. My husband had to go over to record a podcast, so I tagged along and spent the afternoon with my friend. Among things, I tried a bunch of bras and this one was one of the better ones.

    It's very beautiful and I love the colour and lace details on the straps. At the time, I had felt like it might not have had enough projection at the wire, but looking at the pictures, it seems like maybe it's more projected than I had thought. I feel like I the gore was low enough, and my soft tissue was contained fairly well.

    I had some puffing in the 30E but the 30F was better. The band felt fine, especially after trying some really tight 30s.

    If I ever saw this one at a really good price, I would probably try to grab it. This could be the bra for off the shoulders tops...https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />

      Ardour is very very pretty bra and the colour looks great on you!

    • 1

      That is lovely and looks great on you. I love the straps.

    • Wilderness1 here is the Ardour which is the same as Porcelain Grace iirc but fancier.

    • 1

      Very pretty. I’m not a huge fan of that wide got though. I would be overlapping that bad boy.

    • 1

      Calluna, oh yes I see...it is very similar, but this one has prettier straps. I love the colour, it looks really nice on your skin tone.

    • 1

      Gorgeous!

    • 1

      That certainly is one of the nicest and most projected molded cup bras I have seen.
      I think you got this bad boy now you'd have alot more cleavage! XD

      And I totally agree cupandahalf wide gores are the number one reason why I don't purchase a bra these days!

    • 1

      Love this colour. The purple is very rich and it looks great on you!

    • Thanks everyone. It's been on my mind to try again ever since then. I feel like I was in a hurry to try stuff and disqualified it pretty fast because I was so sure that it was slipping out of my imf.

      I tried a version of this a few weeks ago in a deep purple colour. I have no idea which variation it was...Masquerade, Black, or straight Panache. I had mixed feelings about it. At the time, I felt like maybe it’s a bit shallow and is slipping, but my pictures definitely show some depth to it. It’s such a beautiful bra. If I can find it in my size at a reasonable price, I might try it again.

    Hasn't set fit

    This bra is wonderful and impressive on so many levels: wonderfully low wings, silky soft beautiful fabric, and great projection. As other reviewer's said, the band does run large and stretchy. I would encourage anyone in a large cups size to try this. This bra fits me leaps and bounds better than any other molded cup I've tried. Unfortunately, its just a wee bit small on my right side. This isn't super noticeable in pictures, but under shirts the quad boob is clearly visible. I'd try the next size up, but as a g cup is as large as this comes, I'd have to sister size up and alter the band, which seems like too much hassle at this point, and for a $79 bra.

    32FF

    Didn't fit

    For reference I'm about a 32FF in Cleo.

    I bought this bra in a 32FF and a 34F, as I read the previous line (Masquerade) ran tight in the band. However, I would say this bra runs a little generous in the band and cup. I didn't even try on the 34F, as the 32FF band was plenty stretchy (I could easily fasten it on the second hooks). Only three rows of two hooks, sadly. I always prefer a three hook band.

    I do get some gaping, but that's to be expected for a molded cup.

    The tops of the cups, where they attach to ... the straps, do cut into my underarms a bit, but not terribly so.

    This bra is invisible under a t-shirt.

    The lace on the straps and band is very pretty, but it does flip up at the front of the band for me (because of my ribs/stomach/bad posture).

    I did notice that the underwires don't match up where they meet the gore, one is shorter than the other. I've never had a bra do this, and I'm certainly surprised to see it on a $79 bra like this one. Not that big of a deal, but a little disappointing quality for the price.

    The wire width is perfect, and after wearing it a few hours it did stay in my IMF. I'd say this is a great option for a t-shirt bra for projected and fairly narrow shapes.

    I'll be trying this bra in a 30FF and 30G.

    30FF

    Didn't fit

    This is the best bra I've found to fit my FOB / immediately projected breasts. All of my bras in the past have had wrinkling by the wire due to my immediate projection and this is no different, though it's minimal (the wrinkling starts ~0.75" from the wire; in other bras, it can be much higher). The straps occasionally slip down but are not often a problem (note that with the lace detail, they are pretty wide). The bra is usually comfortable, but can sometimes cause pain around my ribs after wearing the bra for many hours. The biggest negative: one of the cups has started to curve ... out a bit at the top, so the cup doesn't sit completely flush on my skin. I've only ever handwashed my bras and always store them safely when traveling so I'm not certain why this happened.

    BTW: The reason this bra is marked as not fitting is because my boobs have shrunk since purchasing this bra and the cups are now too big on me. I can still wear the bra and it looks fine under clothing, but there is significant space between my breasts and the top of the cups. I assume that if I sized down to a 30F, the bra would fit me just fine.

    30D

    Didn't fit

    This is such a lovely bra, and I had high hopes that it would elevate an everyday molded cup t-shirt bra to a more luxurious level, however I don't find that this bra fits true to size at all.

    I ordered my normal size of 30D in two colors, Black and Nude. While in many other brands these days I wear 30DD, I have always found Panache cups to run a little larger and I am always 30D in Panache. 30 Panache bands are frequently too large on me, but in this style, the two bras I ordered were vastly different measurements. The 30D in Nude ... was a perfect band fit and felt great. The 30D in Black had a band that was 1.8" longer on the flat, and therefore it was far too big and rode up.

    The biggest problem is that the cups were so ridiculously small for me I really couldn't get a good idea of the fit other than the fact that the cups are 2-3 sizes too small. The Nude with the TTS band feels much smaller than even the 30C bras I have, and feels like a 30B-C. The Black with the oversized band can only be described as a 32B, maybe even a 32A.

    What a shame, since the design of the bra is gorgeous! Nice wide straps with lace detail, a full band with wide bottom elastic, sturdy wings with lace overlay, and a fancy little crystal charm attached to a small rose at the center front. I wouldn't be surprised if this were a Simone Perele style. The details really remind me more of a French bra. Another good thing is that these cups are definitely just molded and not padded (I wasn't clear on this prior to ordering as some sources described this as padded), since I despise padded bras.

    I am not sure if there are just some grading issues and the other cup sizes run truer to size, but I would check the measurements or make sure the bra is returnable before ordering this. Unfortunately no one else had ordered this size before, so I took a chance on it, and it didn't work out! I think this could be a lovely everyday molded bra if you can find your fit.

    32FF

    Fits

    This is my best fitting molded bra so far. I have narrow rooted, close set, highly projected breasts. This bra is super soft and supportive and fits comfortably. Definitely will be my go-to every day bra from now on.

    Gives great cleavage and a lovely smooth line. However, the wire popped out after a few months and the store wouldn't give me a refund - nor would Panache. Really disappointed because I miss wearing it!
