    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.

    I love love love this bra BUT goddamn, it's pointy!
    It fits almost perfectly, just the tiniest amount of wrinkling in the nipple area, but only when I'm not standing straight up. It's just super pointy.
    The side support paneling is super, comforting? Same with the tightness of the band. It's hard to describe how amazing this bra feels. Putting it on was almost like a relief! I love the color and the fabric is PERFECT. Seriously, I don't want to take it off. Ever.
    ARGH! Why is it sooooo pointy? I am so torn on this bra. I LOVE IT, but I don't like how pointy it is. I tried it with a bunch of t-shirts and just can't do it. I don't mind regular pointy, but this is like WHOA pointy. It's also juuuust too small for me to add some nipple covers to try and even it out.
    I guess I could try it in 28FF? Not sure though.

    • I think it looks really good on you. Scrumptious colourway. As for pointy? Nahhhh. Just your imagination. I have this same bra in a 40F and I love *love* *LOVE* it. I agree, it is very comfortable and supportive. I do think the band runs tight. Sadly, I'm starting to quad out, and a 40 band is now too big for me. I've been looking into replacing it with the plunge version, with appropriate cup- and band- size adjustments.

      But then again, if I could find a Triumph Doreen Non-wired Bra at a good price, I'd buy it without a second thought.

    • It's absolutely my favorite color and I'm really kinda sad about the bra.. Even if the pointiness is in my head, it's still there and would bother me wearing it in public.
      I'm still thinking about keeping the bra, but it's $37 and that's expensive for me for a bra. I'm planning on trying it tomorrow with more flowy tops and forcing nipple covers in there.. but I'm not holding out much hope.

    • Yea, I get that. Money's money, and when you're spending hard-earned money, you'd better be very happy with what you've bought. If I were you, I'd not even try making it work. You'll always feel uncomfortable with it, just *knowing* it's pointy, even if you can somehow obscure that.

      Too many times I've fallen into that same trap, and eventually I'd stop wearing or using whatever it was.

      Didn't they discontinue the andorra plunge version? I only have the balconette/full cup style, in a couple of colors.

      That said, this bra in 32FF gives me a more 'natural' shaped silhouette rather than the very rounded modern t-shirt bra shape that has been popular for a while now. However, I prefer the 'natural' shaping given that's the appearance my boobs tend to take on in shape when left to their own devices. If I ever run into a person who has an issue with this sort of shape doesn't have to look at my boobs! ;)

      Maybe they did discontinue it. I've seen them around, though. I'm with you about shape. I am completely over the round mound boobs look. That's why I *love* unlined/unpadded bras, because of the more natural shaping and the ability of the breast to move, and to show the movement.

    • 1

      I think that boobies in all their many shapes and sizes should be accepted. We get but one life and the body we showed up in is what we have to work with, why not embrace the beauty of differences instead of trying to conform everyone to a particular standard. If I had a Tardis, I'd go back and prevent whoever decided that all boobs should be conformed into the t-shirt bra shape from actually making it happen. And then I'd eliminate Hitler, before doing a bunch of other stuff.

    • From my experience (but I've read it elsewhere too) the shape could get somewhat rounder if you size up one cup from your usual Panache size. I didn't get along with the side slings but shapewise the one cup up worked out for me.
      Certainly it would be easier to fit in the nipple covers in a higher size. But before you go for this option I would consider if more cup width would be OK for you fitwise.

    • I added photos of me wearing nipple covers in the bra in a thick sweater. Wearing them helped but I still feel like I'm perpetually showing off headlights, even though I'm not.
      I am going to look into a higher size for the full cup option, but the cup width is perfect in this size, so I'm not 100% sold on the idea. (Unless there are free returns) I've also decided to grab a Plunge version because I was told that cut is slightly more round and if it's discontinued I gotta try it while I can find my size!
      I usually like the more natural look for breasts, but this doesn't look natural to me, it looks forced. I'll keep an eye on this size on amazon too in case the price goes down considerably, then I might snatch it up and wear it on lazy days.

    I have very cone-like projection to begin with, and this bra just seems to emphasize that. There isn't enough projection in the bottom of the cup for me. The lace on top cuts into and flattens my tissue. So sad. This bra is gorgeous, especially in the bluebell shade.

    At first it felt a little loose but comfortable, but soon felt unsuportive and squashed.

    Band was so tight and straps were so short that upon trying it on for the first time I pulled a muscle in my back. I got somewhat used to it (without any damage) and moved the straps to be the longest. It's very beautiful but I'll be looking for a slightly bigger one -- maybe a 30F.

    This was a strong recommendation from the bra recommendation engine.

    I am even fullness and average on the shallow/projected scale with wideish roots. The wires don't go out far enough for me, but it's not too much of an issue. Other than that this bra fits well and is very pretty. The lace does a decent job at containing nipples.

    A few months ago I tried this bra from Amazon. It fit perfectly except that it was too pointy for me, so I returned it. Once I returned it, I regretted returning it and have been on the look-out for another one that wasn't orange, red, or pink.

    This one came in the mail today and I couldn't be happier!
    It feels like a breast hug, not a bra. It fits me perfectly and it's totally not as pointy as I thought it was. It's actually not even very pointy at all. The only tiny complaint I have is that the fabric is a tad itchy. Nothing bad, just noticeable. I'll probably soak it in conditioner a couple times and see if that fixes it. It's not even something I'll care about if it doesn't change because it's seriously the most perfect bra for my boobs.

    The Panache Andorra would make my boobs smile, you know, if they could.

      I wouldn't use conditioner -- it damages fabric fibres and degrades elastics. Often the culprit isn't the fabric itself, but rather the "sizing" that is present in almost all new cloth. To get rid of that, better just wash the bra with a liquid laundry cleaner (especially at lower temperatures powder can leaves residue which, again, isn't great for delicate fabrics and elastics, nor does it help much with sensitivities).

    • OH! Thank you! I thought conditioner would be the easier-on-fabric version of fabric softener. I will just have to make sure to wash this bra a little bit more regularly.
      Thanks for the heads up!

    • It might be easier on fabric and a little evry now and then probably won't do any harm, but in the long run it will still cause built-up of substances that are not necessarily good for elastics. Either way, I would still try to get rid of the sizing first and see how it feels then :)

    • Thanks for the advice! It's really not super scratchy, so I won't be using anything except soap on it.

    This is the second bra I have in this model. I feel more secure in this bra than any other model. It does minimize the boobs a bit and makes them a bit pointy, but it lifts well and holds them in. Very tight, secure band that keeps it's firmness. Firmer, heavier tissue may fill out the bra more and make it less pointy, as the material is pretty stretchy.

    I should have got this in 28FF - it's definitely too small, but the stretchy lace makes it wearable. It's a tiny bit too shallow for me, but just a bit. The side support panels seem to help prevent the extra space I usually have at the outside of cups. The gore is digging in a bit - I think it would be more comfortable if it was higher.
    This gives a "green" shape (bit pointy, ski-slope effect). I like it fine.
    The straps are set narrow enough for me, hurray!
    I thought the color was going to be closer to coral, but got it anyway because it was a good sale. It is a gorgeous bright pink.

    ETA: After bending the gore, this fits really well. Apparently this is just a modification I will have to do for gores of this height.

    Pros: This bra offers fantastic side support. The bra in general offers fantastic support, so much that I feel myself standing straighter. In fact, I'd say the bra forces better posture on my part. I guess this is what it feels like to have the bra support the breasts instead of my shoulders and back doing the work.

    Cons: I really wanted to like this bra. However, it lends a somewhat conical profile to my breasts. The apex of the bra and of my breasts align perfectly so that, beneath clothing, I end up with Howard Hughes/sweater girl look. I suspect that my breasts do not project enough or ... that I simply don't have enough volume. It does look more rounded if I wear a half-cup insert. When I went down a cup to the sister size 30DD, the smaller cup generated a slight quad-boob effect at the same time as an even more pronounced bullet bra look. The lace could be a bit better made. It is fraying a little bit already. And it gets itchy as the day goes on.

    Because the bra provides such great support, I'm not willing to part with this bra. Although I won't be able to wear it with my usual t-shirts, it's a great bra to wear at home lounging around or underneath something that's less form-fitting. So, yes, I'm keeping it and will likely get another one when this needs to be replaced.
