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.

This is the only bra I have right now that "fits". Since I am new to proper fitting bras,I'm still uncertain if it's actually the most correct fit but it works for me. Both breasts fit fine after swoop n scoop,although since the right one is so much smaller there is a slight but very unnoticeable gap in the top of the cup. When I got the bra it was almost unbearable to wear because the band was so tight,but being new to this I though "oh that must mean I need to break it in!". It did eventually get looser and now aside from the fabric being ... itchy and rough (accidentally dried it),it fits great! I love how thin the fabric is and the lace is so lovely. I have to go buy some silk fabric to slip over the straps as they irritate my skin badly. As you can see from the pics it has already got wear on it just from being worn so much. I'm really hoping to find a bra that fits me like this one but with a softer fabric. It doesn't make my breasts look that spectacular,but it sure beats the god awful target/walmart bras I've been wearing my whole life.

This is a very pretty bra and I love the lace detailing on it. I have wide-set, shallow breasts and this bra seems to work with them, although it would be an even better fit if I was slightly more projected. The lace is very stretchy and comfortable while still looking very delicate and pretty.
The only weird thing about this bra for me is that it gives me a case of pointy boobs. The mesh side panel really brings my boobs front and center, and for some strange reason make them look pointier than I'm used to. I'm not sure I love the shape it gives me, but I'm going to try it and see how I like it.

Beautiful bra with outstanding side-support. I bought too small a size for me (it's deep purple" and I bought it very cheap to try out the size), but as soon as I can afford it I will buy an Andorra in 28something or a 30D. This bra is soft, stretchy, pretty, and comfortable, but, as far as I know, it seems to run small. This bra fits better than my Freya in 28D because the Andorra's underwires suit my shape more. I look forward to getting an Andorra in the proper size.

This bra was my first step into finding a bra that actually fits! It's comfortable, pretty, and creates an amazing shape. The only major downside is that it can look rather pointy under clothes. But other than that, it's an amazing bra.

The band is very comfy on this bra. The lace on top starts to wrinkle though, but it sits fine under most looser clothing.

Panache's 'Andorra' is one of my very first properly fitted bras. Having a 25.5'' chest, 28'' bands that run tight are as close as it gets to a proper fit in my case, at least for the time being. (I have been judged to be a 26DD/E at a recent bra fitting).
This bra is very nice.The quality of the lace is very good - it's soft, doesn't scratch or irritate my skin, and looks beautiful on. I bought the deep red 'Scarlet' version - it's much darker than in the stock photos, which I like.
Aesthetics aside, the fit of is judged by me to be satisfactory - ... for an unpadded model, the projection and side support it gives is impressive. Being a shallow/wide + tall root/wide-set/uneven silhouette type, I feel surprisingly good wearing something this revealing.
The fit of this bra is very forgiving due to the stretchy lace on top of the cups - take note if you have uneven breasts (they won't be noticeable while wearing this-the lace will be flush with both of them).
Two things I'm slightly in two minds about, which make me wonder whether this is the right model/size for me, are:
1. This is supposedly a 'full cup' model, however the cups aren't that tall. They end roughly where my Comexim half-cups would end - meaning, this fits me more like a half-cup than a full-cup. Not sure whether I should perhaps try it in 28DD (but then again, the cup could end up being too deep) - I just thought it was supposed to cover more surface area, if that makes any sense.
2. The shape this model gives me, is, as other reviewers said above, ever-so-slightly pointy. In my case, it seems to be attributable to the fact that being made of thin lace, it doesn't really disguise nipples that well. I've read that this sometimes happens with FOT silhouette types (though I consider myself FOB, so that theory could not be applicable here).

The lace keep sliding down my boob and wrinkling https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />( Otherwise the fit and comfort is spot on. I appreciate how the straps are smooth and don't have those frill things (lookin' at you, Freya). Not really a fan of the pointy shape, either.

This bra is so cute and it gives great projection with no padding. It's gorgeous and the lace is super high quality.

I initially ordered the Panache Andorra in 28E and 30D which were the closest to my size available in the sale colors I wanted. The 28E in teal fit just right in the band but was definitely too large in the cup. I sold it to another Bratabase user. The 30D in spice was too loose in the band and also just a bit large in the cup. I swapped it on r/braswap. Having tried both of these, I figured surely the 28D would be a perfect fit so I went ahead and ordered it.
It did fit, both in the band and the cup, but made me look... ... well, triangular. I'm not a huge fan of the Kim Possible boob look so sadly the 28D was promptly returned (again, forgetting to measure or take pictures.) I really love the aesthetic and the soft, stretch-lace material Andorra is made of though and hope to find something similar with a more flattering shape.
I'm wondering if the Andorra plunge cut would suit me better but seeing as it's discontinued, I'll probably never know. Oh well. The search continues.
