  1. I've found the perfect bra for me! Ok, well maybe I could do with a 28H because the cups are a little on the small side, but the fabric is so stretchy that it doesn't matter. I feel like this bra was made for me - the shape is perfect. I have bottom-heavy, high-nippled, wide boobs and it's hard to fit them into anything (the deco also works well, but the band is too big). But this fits like a dream! And it is very comfortable - no poking wires, no rough seams. The fabric is very stretchy and yet supportive.

    The best thing, for me anyway, is ... the band. Most people seem to need to go up a bandsize in this bra - I usually have the opposite problem as being 25" around my ribcage, 28 band bras are to big on me. This one is by far the best fit I've ever had - it's more like a 27 than a 28, and I can wear it on the middle or loosest hooks which is a first! If you usually buy a 28 you'll probably find this band is too tight, but for those who need an ever-elusive 26, this is a good compromise. I currently have this in berry and white.

    Pros:
    - high quality
    - stretchy fabric
    - subtly sexy
    - small band size good for those who need a 26 or less

    Cons:
    - cups a bit on the small side, go up 1 or 2 cupsizes
    - band will be too tight for those who usually fit a 28
    - will not be flattering on all breast shapes

    edit - I've requested fitting help with this as I've grown in both breasts and it no longer feels as comfortable. I still love it though!

    • Can you tell me how the pink and the white compare? I have it in pearl, black, and purple; the black runs a full cup size smaller than the pearl, and the purple is smaller than pearl too. I want to get a berry but I don't know how it compares! Are yours different from each other at all?

      Thank you!

    • The white is definitely smaller than the pink in this size. I can't wear either any more, but of the two the white is more like a G than a GG. I would say the berry (pink) is a true GG.

    • Thank you!

  2. This is the bra that I would recommend for a woman trying to find her first correctly fitted bra online.

    It's extremely supportive and probably provides the most perky shape of all my bras. It's almost a little retro! However there are no stiff seams at the nipple so it's not overtly pointy.

    The lace on the top of the cup is very stretchy. The band is firm but also very stretchy and moves as you breathe nicely.

    I can wear this bra in a few sizes and there are no obvious fitting flaws. It's the most forgiving bra I've tried. The lace is firm but stretchy and won't dig in. But in the 30G (my standard bra size) this is the most comfortable.

    That's why I'd recommend it to a first timer desperately trying to self fit and paying a small fortune in online returns: you'll get close to your perfect size and still be able to wear the Andora comfortably. For your 2nd bra you can work on something more exacting in the fitting department!

    • Oh this explains it! I'm not the only one getting away with fitting Andorra in different sizes :D I thought it was just me. I could never get away with other bras like this. It's truly superior yes!

    • 1

      I am in a place where there are no brick and mortar shops. I can order online, but returning is next to impossible. I was very discouraged when I first ordered a range of sizes in another bra and none of them fit. I got them on a sale but still. I read online reviews that said that the Andorra was quite forgiving but was still uncertain. Your recommendation helped me make up my mind (as someone desperately trying to self fit) and I have not regretted it. I ordered two sizes and they both fit. And for myself, I like the perky shape as well. In the future, I might experiment with some other bras, but I will definitely order this again. Or I might also try the other elastic lace Panache models.

      Thank you for a good recommendation.

    Didn't fit

    I THINK I MAY HAVE FOUND MY HOLY GRAIL BRA! Or I'm a lot closer, anyway. I have never experienced a fit so perfect.
    I fill the cups completely with the top edge making a smooth line, and the center gore lies flat against my sternum. The band never rides up even though I can fit a whole fist under it.
    Whether what I have spilling out the sides -- as you can see in the back shot -- is escaped breast tissue or just fat, is debatable. But the underwire's placement is comfortable. My only concern so far is they way ... my belly causes the lace on the bottom edges of the cups to curl up at the bottom (you can see this in the front shot). I am open to suggestions on what to do about that.
    I must also note that is comfortable lying down, which is important to me because I like to recline in order to relax. In my current living situation, that usually means just lying in bed.
    Thank you, Bratabase! The last time I tried to get measured at a store, the woman doing so pronounced me a "big B." I had to take off my shirt to prove to her that I was wearing (and pushing out the center gore on) a DD-cup and she practically fell over in shock. Who knows how long getting to this size/cut combination would have taken without this website.

      Omg. What was she trying to throw you in??? A 40B?????? I'm so happy you're finally comfortable and supported. You should see the way people look at me when I say I'm a 28D/DD...and I'm flat chested!

      I have avoided trying the andora because of that lace/belly issue. I try to only buy bras with a smooth bottom edge

      I've had luck cutting the lace off the bottom of bra bands.

      LeProfessor "Throw you in", is the perfect phrase for it. She tried to toss drakefish chest in some (any) thing then collect her paycheck! This is why I give the side eye to so many "fitters."

    • 1

      I'm glad you found a fit that works well for you! It's a great feeling after so many mis-fits! I also have the same problem with bottom lace because my ribcage flares out. I'm not sure there's an answer. I just try to ignore it.

    • 2

      Me too EmmaOh , lol. Very few fitters actually know what they're doing. I also wanted to note that I am quite thin and lace that extends from the bottom of bras curls up from my tummy too! I agree with Brash5 , I just try to ignore it. It's not like it is visible under clothing.
      And hey, at least your 'holy grail' is still in production! Mine has been discontinued a LONG time (Mimi Holliday 28D & Claudette). Lol

    • I'm short-waisted (although I'm also 5'10") and honestly thought the lace would bug me - but it doesn't. It does curl up sometimes but I don't notice at all. It's also my holy grail bra.

    General comments:

    This is the first bra I've ever tried that actually fits me perfectly. The band is nice and snug at the loosest hook, the wires encircle my breasts comfortably as they should , the cups are well filled out without wrinkling, spilling or cutting in anywhere, the shape they give me is natural but nice and rounded and not too East-West for a change, in short: everything is perfect!

    Bra description:

    A handsome full-cup bra made out of black stretch lace partly underlined with a sheer, very smooth, non-stretch mesh. The whole appearance is quite delicate and subtly sheer. The 'side support slings' on the inside of the cups ... are made out the same smooth, sheer mesh material that is folded double so there's no rough, bumpy or overlocked edge touching the breasts.

    Fit:

    As said, the fit of this bra is the best I've ever had of any bra. The band closes snugly without feeling constricting at the loosest hook, a very first for me. The centre gore stays lies nice and flat. The underwires are suitably wide (but not overly so) and they feel very comfortable. Apparently, a correctly fitting band DOES make all the difference ;)

    The cups give me a good shape, nothing dramatic, but I'm very happy with it. It's definitely the best I've ever had from a non-padded bra: supported and nicely rounded. I particularly like how my breasts are finally facing FORWARD, instead of their usual East-West. The stretch lace at the top of the cups is forgiving and does not cut in. Although I haven't worn it for very long yet, I feel can comfortably wear this bra despite my fluctuating size (breastfeeding).

    The only thing to watch out for in this bra is to not tighten the straps too much. Pull them too tight ant the 'side support sling' will cause a slightly odd shape in the cups: a kind of indentation at the edge of the sling. My 'pear-shaped' breasts (relatively wide base topped with a puffy areola) actually HAVE an indentation at that point naturally so maybe this is something that isn't very noticeable in other breast shapes, but I though I'd mention it anyway.

    Appearance:

    On me it is indeed a very full cup. I like the look and I'm not concerned with the lace showing under low-cut shirts as it's definitely pretty enough and I prefer seeing lace over cleavage anyway, but if that is not your thing then this is maybe not the bra for you. The bra is pretty and delicate and I just cannot believe how lovely and round my breasts look in it!

    Conclusion:

    My favourite bra ever! Okay, so I haven't been around in the proper bra size world for that long as this is only my first 'real' bra, but it certainly is a good start ;)

    Edited To Add:
    I have now also added drop-cup nursing clasps to this bra which makes it even more perfect.

    • What exactly now again was your problem with Andorra later on?

    • Andorra cuts in along the cup edge. Also, it gives me a pointy shape when seen from the side, even though the cups seem half empty.

      I should probably update the fit info I've provided here, because I've come to find the band too snug for comfort too.

    28E

    Didn't fit

    I have a 27 inch snug underbust and 33.2 inch leaning bust measurement and the calculator said I was a 28E/F. I think I have tall, shallow, narrow roots. Centre full, splayed, projected and even fullness. I have never really worn proper bras before but after reading through abrathatfits and letting my tissue finish migrating with snug sports bras, I got this and two others from amazon. And it fits (IMO) really quite well. The cups are slightly to wide for me, and is perhaps a teensy bit too projected, but now I can use this to work out the sort of measurements I need (somewhere in the ... ballpark of 4.6-4.8 width cups, depending on the gore width, and a depth of 7.6-8.1) The gore is fine and not too wide, despite me being quite close set. I'd definitely recommend this for those who are even fullness and have a decent amount of projection, as it'd probably fit weirdly if you're full on top or have tall, not particularly shallow roots. Be aware it gives you a natural 'pointy' shape and is made of stretchy lace. No rounded cups here, though it has pockets in the cups for padding or whatever. If you have other bras you should pinpoint the fit issues, check their measurements on here and work out what you should try next. (Just because the calculator said you were such and such doesn't mean you should get that size on every brand and style of bra and it'll fit you with no issues!) anyway...This is a great bra, and I'm very happy to wear it. Just wish I knew it was sheer beforehand *cries* and could get it in heather. I had my heart set on that colour but they're all sold out. Any idea if they'll make more of them?

    *edit* I have no idea what I was thinking. Actually, I do, I wasn't.
    This Is waaaay to wide for me, by about an inch and a half on each side. The depth is good though. A shame because it is really quite pwetty.

    34E

    Didn't fit

    I'm at the beginning of my bra fitting journey, trying to sort out my proper size with help from Bratabase, Reddit's ABraThatFits, and many wonderful bra bloggers. I figure it's time to stop lurking and join the community! I will try to get pics before I return the Andorra. I own 2 ancient Body by VS 34DDs, which I now know do not remotely fit, and I just acquired a Claudette Dessous 34F and a Panache Andorra Full Cup 34E. I need to get over my social anxiety and body insecurity and check out my local Nordstrom's to try on different brands/sizes.

    This bra is insanely comfortable! The only ... complaint I have is the profile shape I get, which from bottom to nipple is shaped slightly 'beaky' and compressed to a point. It's not the cute retro kind of point either, it's more of a compressed mammogram kinda point, but then the profile from the nipple up is a nice rounded yet contained shape, with no cleavage (but my breast shape makes it very hard to get cleavage, to my dismay, and I'm super full on top). I think this bottom beaky shape occurs because of Andorra's horizontal seam in combination with my natural shape. I should note that the second time I wore Andorra, the shape wasn't nearly as pointy. Otherwise, I feel comfortably contained, breasts are held close to the body, fabric feels soft and silky, everything feels locked in and secure (but I have firm tissue, so I don't have much jiggle to contend with) and very uplifted. I could see Andorra being a great everyday bra, and especially good for helping prevent button gape on non-stretch shirts, or to lessen the 'boob tent' effect of a flowy top. I wonder if the beaky profile is lessened for people who have a more even or full on bottom shape?

    I'm pretty sure the 34E Mineral Blue Full Cup Andorra is a cup size too small for me. I need to take pics and ask for fit advice. The comfy stretch lace makes it so there isn't any bubbling over at the top. The color is more green/teal than the warm blue I expected, but still very pretty, and I like the color on the lace pattern cups, as I feel the light color interwoven with the "Mineral Blue" base color makes it more interesting and sophisticated. When I first put it on, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to close the band on the largest hook. I wore it for half an hour, laughed at the crazy shape the bottom half of the cups gave me, and took it off with the thought that I'd need a 36 band for sure, and possibly a larger cup. I was thinking maybe the profile wouldn't look so bizarre if I sized up, as I've read that this bra can look very pointy if it's too small. A day or so later I tried it on again to get some measurements, and surprisingly it felt a lot more comfortable! The band no longer felt too tight, but nice and secure on the largest hook, with no back fat spillage. Also, the shape wasn't nearly as 'beaky' and compressed in profile as it was for the first half hour of wear. Weird. I guess some bras really do have a kind of break-in period?

      I also get a "beak" shape in all Panache unlined bras, unless they have only vertical seams. I got this shape when I was young and very firm with more breast height/upper fullness and I get it now I'm old, postbabies and very soft! The only thing that hasn't changed about my shape is that I'm projected with all my fullness on the inner side of the breast, and although gravity conceals it, my boob structure is technically rather conical if you're looking from the side. I think most Panache cups are seamed in a way that does not accommodate that. If you aren't hung up on designs being super trendy, Fantasie has some full cups that are perfectly shaped to match this breast shape--look for the ones that have straps which aren't too far apart.

    • Interesting! I wonder why some of us get that 'beak' shape in Panache's unlined bras? As I was reading your response, my first thought was, "Aha! It must be because of firm tissue!" and then as I continued reading, I realized that you still get the beak shape after changes in your tissue softness. Maybe it's due to having a projected and conical breast structure?

      Thank you for the tip about Fantasie's full cups, and also to look for vertically seamed Panache bras. I would love to find a bra as comfortably soft to wear and yet still secure feeling as the Andorra, but minus the beak profile! I hope the Fantasie bras are as comfortable as the Andorra. I'm just figuring out what bra shapes will work best with my body. Trends are not very important to me; my priorities are comfort, along with looking nice (to me, 'nice' is not super pointy or east/west) under clothing. It's just a bonus if the bra happens to be what I consider pretty.

    • 2

      I think fundamentally "beak shape" occurs when some or all of your upper breast is not able to conform to the angle and shape of the relatively flattened Panache upper cup shape. (This can seem misleading because "flattened upper cup" doesn't mean FLAT upper boob surface from apex to cup edge: you can have super round boobs and still fit in there just fine as long as your tissue is located where the cup has room for it.) So anyone who has a taller breast shape than the cup, OR a higher breast apex, OR more upper-inner or upper-outer quadrant fullness than the cup does in your size range, is going to end up with this funny shape.

    • Thanks again for your thoughtful comments on the "beak shape" phenomenon! I didn't realize that there is such a large amount of variables that can affect bra fitting! I'm amazed at the wealth of knowledge in this community, and glad to see this is a place free from body shaming. I really should take pics to accompany my review, and also to post under Fitting Help.

      You're welcome! Yes, a wealth of knowledge is what happens when you get a large number of bra obsessed people in the same place ;-) And I'm glad to say there is no body shaming allowed at all!

    The Andorra Full Cup fits me almost perfectly and it gives my bust good lift and projection. The underwire is almost too long in the outer perimeter and after wearing for a day it almost started to bug me near my underarms,. Fortunately for me "almost" doesn't count so the fit is perfect. Another almost problem is due to an optical illusion when trying the bra on. When I look in the mirror with just the bra on it looks like there is too much east-west action. But put a t-shirt on and east-west is gone with the wind and my chest looks fabulous. This is my best bra since my recent bra-enlightenment. I was clueless before but now I am found. Thanks to Bratabase and bra bloggers of the world for sharing your wisdom!

  9. Finally, a fitting bra! Boob twin, this one is a YES. Scoop one up if you can still find them on discount sites.

    I tried this on when it arrived and I refuse to take it off just to measure it so I'll do that another day. It is firm but comfortable in the band, supportive, brings my boobs forward, doesn't smush them flat, and feels great!

    The only downsides:

    The shape it gives is pointy. For me, this is not an issue, but I know some people are dead set on a rounded shape. I think it looks just fine under a t-shirt but if you are more into foam moulded bras, this might be too big a first step in the other direction.

    Also, the label is super itchy. I don't like cutting off bra labels so for now I have the tags tucked so they dangle down my back below the band.

    I'm sure I'll have more thoughts as I begin to break this in.

      Yea, I'm with you on this one. I love my Andorra. Personally, I like the shape it gives me.

      I like my Andorra's as well, but it took a while before they didn't make every inch of skin the bras come in contact with ITCHY. I don't know if it's something they treat the bras with before they go out to retailers or what, but boobs, where the band touches the sides and back, and to a lesser extent where the straps are worn being itchy as heck makes it hard not to start scratching like crazy while in public places and no off-to-the-side area to do some covert scratching.

    38HH

    Fits

    This bra has trumped my 38HH Cleo Lucy as my best fitting bra. Thanks to the recommendation of an active bratabase/abtf user I went to Nordstrom to try this bra today. It fit like a dream and there was no way I was leaving the store without it! I think I have a mental aversion to the words "full cup" but this still manages to look super cute, even in a simple color like "Pearl". If you have a wide breast root, definitely try this bra. The band rolls up a bit on me under the cups, but that doesn't effect the fit really. It just can't be helped because of all my weird squishy fat from my 90 pound (and still going) weightloss in the last year and a half. Happy boobs!
