I got this bra from Sonya - thank you!
This is my second bra in this size and it's the black colourway. I sort of spoiled the surprise for myself by snatching the magenta one up on sale. While they both are a great fit (best so far, along with my 30FF - Panache » Loretta Plunge (6686) ) this colour, while measuring tighter, feels the perfect amount of snug. The wires rode down after an hour or so and threw everything out of alignment, but I hiked it back up and felt comfortable again.
This is still being made as far as I know ... which is good news since the Loretta is discontinued. It seems to be out of stock in my size almost everywhere but it might just be about to release a new season.
I noticed in the pictures that the lace on the band wants to flip up, so I guess I'll just let it https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
Both colours fit exactly the same in the cup - laying flat across the top, enough projection, extra space in the bottom and sides, gapping in the straps when I slouch. This one is a little easier to move in, but that might be I hiked it back up when it slid down whereas when the magenta one slid down I reacted with confusion and eventually changed.
All in all Panache has been a series of wins for now - could be I find something without these small issues farther down the road but quite happy and comfy https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> not a sleep bra by any means but a sexy, natural-looking everyday bra. Hopefully they'll last a long time, and when my size is back in stock for a decent price I am hoping to get a pearl or nude-to-beige colour.

The upper lace section is very stretchy, so it is forgiving for full on top boobs. It does cut in on my boobs though, but that's because the bra is small for my size. I should have gone for 28G instead. On me the shape is pointy, but not so much under a shirt. The band is firm. The centre gore lies flat on my sternum. The straps are adjustable all the way, so that's nice. All in all it's a lovely bra if you got it in your correct size.

I have two of these in 28FF and I like them! This one is the magenta colourway. I'm in love with the cute stretch lace and satin bow and the "perky" shape I get. This is supposedly a full cup bra but doesn't feel stuffy. The two colours measure and feel a bit differently - this one had much stiffer underwires and rode down, making it feel a little too snug despite measuring an inch longer laid flat. I lasted an hour or two before changing to the black one. Maybe it will bend around my ribcage.
Even though there is room at the bottom and sides the ... bra gives lots of lift and has my breasts right where I'd like them to be. There's something going on above the lace, but I'm not sure it's quadboob so much as just chest tissue. After some reading I wonder if I have short roots. Another telltale sign of short roots seems to be the gapping I have at the straps when I roll my shoulders forward.
This has a nice low profile under a tshirt.
The centre gore is a little itchy - just the magenta one as far as I can tell! The lace on the band flips up, which I don't notice until I take pictures.

This is a pretty nice bra. The lace is a little scratchy (but it's new) and it contains things pretty well considering it's a thin and lacy bra. It fits my smaller breast really well but is a bit too small on my larger one and cuts in. The shape it gives me is slightly pointy, but not too bad. I will keep an eye out for the 28G to come on sale on Amazon and will be keeping this one in hopes of losing a few pounds.

This bra looks very delicate and feminine. The lace cups are half lined, so though the lace is a bit stretchy the cups don't have too much give. It's comfortable, and very flattering, not even a little itchy. Usually I need to bend underwires for them to follow the curve of my breast, with PE if the wires aren't right on top of each other the gore is usually too wide, but the underwires in this bra were surprisingly tensile. The wires shaped to the cure naturally and didn't require extra persuasion from me. I will definitely be buying this bra in all the colors.

Extreme torpedo appearance. My breasts are projected, center-full and FoT and this bra was very unflattering. Wires were too wide, the bottom appeared underfilled, and tissue was almost bursting out of the top.
I also found the band to be tighter than I prefer but not unwearable.

This bra is probably my best fitting and most comfortable at the moment. This Black Andorra is slightly larger in the band and the cups than the Spice colourway (strange, I know), but that makes it suuuuper comfortable! The gore tacks well, it gives me a great shape (not super pointy), the wires are a great width for me, the straps stay on for the most part, and I love having two fuller-coverage bras when I just wanna feel really secure.

This is the Spice colourway. I bought this and the Black colourway from SFYS in Toronto when they were on clearance for half price, because SFYS won't be stocking the Andorra Full Cup anymore (strange, I know). The band is wonderfully snug, but the cups are just slightly too small for me in this colourway (again, strange that it would run smaller in band and cup than the Black colourway!) so it makes it feel overall just a little bit too small. I can cope, though. This also means that this colourway is slightly pointier than my Black. Everything else is fantastic though. I particularly like how the straps are positioned closer-set than my other bras.

This is possibly one of the comfiest underwired bras I have ever worn, second only to the Panache Sports bra. The cups fit very nicely and give me a forward projecting shape without widening my torso, which is always something I'm looking for in a good bra. The band is not as firm as I normally like, but still doesn't slip out of place and is very comfortable. Not sure how quickly this bra will stretch out, but if it does I'm wearing it on the largest hook so it's okay. The fabric is SO soft and comfortable, the only thing I'm really aware ... of when wearing this bra are the wires, but that's pretty normal for me. The bra is wonderfully made, with straps that are comfortably wide yet still look nice. My only minor complaint with it is the shape--it gives me more of a pointed, "natural boob" look and doesn't lift quite as much as I normally prefer, but these aren't really bad things. I normally prefer more rounded shapes, but often find that they widen my torso, so this is a nice change. It's very natural and flattering, sort of the bra-equivalent of a "my lips but better" lipstick. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
Mind you, the shape issue is a VERY minor problem for me. The bra is comfy, fits and supports well and keeps everything where it should be, and overall I'm very happy. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
