This bra is pretty for something I would consider a basic everyday bra. The cups are made of a nice soft lace with a reinforced bottom panels and an inner side panel to help push the breasts forward I guess. It gives a really nice natural shape.
The bra fits really nicely as well. It's a full cup, so I don't have that cutting in issue I generally have with some of my other bras.
I actually bought the 30E first, but when I pulled my elbows back I was bulging at the top, but not too much. The 30E also gave me a ...pointier shape. I wasn't sure if this size would be too big, but it turned out to be just slightly bigger and it worked for me.
Edit: After wearing this bra all day and to the club, I'm finding the centre wires are really poking into my chest. I'm assuming it's because I have wide breasts or it's just the style of the bra. Anyway, it's just something to keep in mind.
Edit2: I just wanted to update my review again since I've been wearing this bra for a while now. I have to say it is my favourite bra and if the style becomes discontinued I will cry. I still have the problem with the centre gore poking after a long day, but it's not as bad now. If you generally have a problem with the cups cutting into you, I don't think you will with this one. The soft lace stretches to your shape which I think is great. Read more 166 more words
This bra fits well in theory, there is nothing "wrong" with the fit, but it gives me very pointy and somehow odd shape which I don´t like https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The shape is even pointier that I get in the plunge version.
Other than that, it is a good bra. No poking anywhere, it is very comfortable. Normally I wear 28F, but this has a snug band and 30 band is okay for me. I did have to size up in the cup (to 30F), because I got massive quadboob in 30E. The straps are fully adjustable. The wires are wide enough for ...me ( I need average - wider wires) and they are not too flexible, they keep their shape https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
The colour I just love, I think I got this bra because of the colour... Caribbean blue that is.
EDIT. I have some wrinkles at the bottom of the cups. They do go away if I tighten the straps, but then the side panels pull my breasts and the shape is more strange.
EDIT 2. I changed the fitting status because I do get quadboob during PMS. Even non-PMS the top lace flattens my boobs and even if it is technically not real quadboob, it shows that the cup is too small at the top. Read more 118 more words
When I originally bought this, it was my first non padded bra and the first full cup I'd worn in years. I love the colour, stretch and feel of this bra. I was scared to get a full cup bra as I'm FoT and have had terrible luck with enclosed bras. This however was just right with the stretch.
It no longer fits me and the pictures are pictures I took recently so they don't show how it looked when it fit perfectly.
Some things this bra really got right for me: The height of the wing is perfect. No rubbing. The gore doesn't dig in or separate too much.
Little things I don't like is the lace at the bottom rolls up and the band has always been a tad snug.
As for now, I think I would need to get a band and cup size up but I'm not 100% sure till I try.
The Andorra is a very pretty full cup option featuring beautiful two tone lace (with stretch in the upper cup). The scarlet colorway is far more pink as on the promo pics or bratabase photos, but I think it would suite warmer skin tones as well as colder ones.
Sadly this bra didn't fit me. The cups were slightly smaller as on other 30F Panache bras I tried and so there was a little bit of quadboob. Furthermore the side sling turned out not to be my best friend, but out of the 4 Panache models with this feature I tried this was the one were it ...was less obvious. It gave me a somewhat pointy teardrop shape. I can only agree with other reviewers that shape and fit improve going up one cup size. The shape was rounder in the 30FF - Panache » Andorra Full Cup (5675), but didn't work out for me either as the side slings caused visible indents in this size.
Nevertheless I think this could be a very comfy bra in my size range for those who get along with the side slings. Read more 84 more words
I really like this bra - it's probably my first one that "fits." That said, I've found that the lace can be quite painful around my armpit area. I'm very short (5ft,1.53m), and I have pretty high set boobs so this is a common problem. My boobs look a little pointy in this bra, but I don't mind. The lace at the top is very forgiving which I like. I get a tiny quad boob on my period, but no one can see because of how the bra is shaped/stretchy lace.
I don't think I can really give this bra a fair review, as I spent 8 hours wearing it with the top of the centre gore digging into me - the bruise took over a week to fade! The nicest thing I can say about it is that it gives my boobs a better shape than the 30E, which I also own.

I ordered this bra in ivory and teal and I really love the colour combination. I think the embroidery is very pretty and I think the style of it gives it a classy look compared to other Curvy Kate bras (which I would describe as a more fun look). The swirls instead of bows on the centre gore and the straps is a nice change of style. Style wise I think it's great, although I have the say the ...swirls on the straps were scratchy on the skin when I hold out my arms in front of me.
The band fits like other 30 bands I own and I found it nice and firm. The only issue of fit I had is with the cups. I put in my fit assessment that it give a smooth line along the top, but to be honest, I think it's slightly too tight on the top and I would prefer something a bit more roomy there. I think this style might work better for those who are fuller on the bottom. Read more 100 more words
