This bra might be life-changing. I've never had a proper sports bra that actually fit me before. Before, I used to just wear 2 sports bras and hope for the best. It worked, but it was very tight and my boobs would be squashed together. Peeling the things off after a sweaty workout was almost a workout in itself.
The Panache sports bra is a game-changer! There's no wires, but the cups are molded in such a way that they lift and separate my breasts. The cups hold my breasts in place and keeps them from bouncing around. There's also a J-hook at the back for more support, or ... to coordinate with your top. The neckline is high enough that my boobs won't fall out during yoga inversions. In fact, it covers enough of me that I think I'd feel comfortable wearing it without a shirt over top at the gym.
The band hugs my ribcage - my boobs don't feel like they're trying to escape beneath the band (a big problem I'd get in sm/med/lg sized bras where I'd have to size up to fit my breasts). I love the fact that there's a proper closure at the back - no more trying to wiggle out of a sweaty bra after a workout.

I am a fan of the wired and non-wired Panache Sport bras, but I am starting to like the non wired best. It stays in place better during my workouts and just seems to fit better. I can wear 30DD, 30E and 32DD pretty comfortably in these. The 30 bands are better, but the 32DD is a bit more comfortable and cups fit best. Technically speaking, I think the 30E is the best fit (my usual UK size). Try the non wired if the wired version was a problematic fit for you.

First of all, this bra has no wires, but it has clearly visible 'molds' for the cups. (They are, however, stretchy and may adapt to your shape, because there are no wires.)
All measurements of the cups were taken unstretched.
Some additional measurements:
Cup width measured vertically: 15cm.
Strap width varies between 3cm at the widest and 1.8cm at the narrowest part.
The upper part of the straps is cushioned, and they are only partially adjustable.
I will add more information as soon as I have tried and tested the bra.
Edited to add:
- It fits! I'm usually a 30E, but went for a 32DD in this style because I don't like sports bras that are too tight and hinder breathing (sports aren't fun if you can't brrreeeeaaaaathe, right?) The band width is just perfect, and it provides excellent support thanks to the 3-hook closure.
It provides good support, is pretty comfy overall, and it suits my wide root shallow boobs much better than the wired version did.

This bra supports well and is comfortable. My boobs do not bounce at all. It also gives a nice shape.
I personally prefer the wired version because it has a little more immediate projection. The wireless cups, on my breasts, collapse just a little and are slightly too small. This is, however, a very minor issue and I really enjoy this bra.

I had to size up in the cups for this to work on my wide shoulder frame. The bust points on the 32D were way to narrow for me and looked really weird. The support after sizing up is a little less than it should, but I do not run in this, I do jumping exercises and it works pretty well. If you are concerned about maxium support, stay with your usual cup size, but if you want a more traditional bra with great support for light to medium exercises then this will be great sized up in the cup. The band is super firm and doesn't feel tight on. I do need help hooking the band because it is is firm.
