This review is for the Panache Andorra Full Cup in 32GG. My ABTF size is 32G/GG UK (or more) depending on projection.
* Measured from 27 to 31. Clearly this runs small.
* Very firm.
* Have a mesh inner side sling.
* Very comfortable.
About me: very close set (breasts touch), very narrow roots, very projected at the wire, functionally even to full on bottom, short roots, relatively soft tissue, significant rib flares, narrow shoulders.
* The band length was really short. I actually had to wear an extender to even fasten it. I'm surprised at this based on my other experiences with Panache. The lace on the band did curl ... up on my even trying it on. I'm sure for sitting all day it would definitely curl.
* The gore tacked nicely. It was tall for me, but fine. It was narrow enough for me at .75 inches, but I still might prefer to overlay them.
* The cups seem to have the right volume for me, and the tops actually laid down perfectly. The wires are not narrow enough for me and it does not have enough immediate projection for me.
* The straps are long enough.
* The sides are a comfortable height for me.
* I like this bra even though I don't normally like lace. I love how the tops of the cups fit me. I just need a ton more immediate projection and significantly more narrow wires.

This was my first Andorra, back when I thought I was a 32 band. It is the bra that made me fall in love with the Andorra style! Alas, the cups were not deep enough, and the band was too long. I ended up being a perfect 30HH in this style! I have it in all seven colors, so yeah, I'm a bit of a fanatic about the Andorra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" /> It supports silicone like nothing else; feels like two hands lifting you up all day! Heavenly.

I would tell them that it is amazing. I've had issues finding a Panache that fits and I'm wary of full cups, so I basically just bought this from amazon on a whim, thinking I'd have to send it back. NOPE! It's perfect. The color (powder) isn't terrible, and the lace is very comfortable. No digging, perfect gore, my boobs don't leak out the sides. IT'S AMAZING. I just wish I could find more colors in my size!

I have this in the lemonade color, new to the SS15 line. I've tried this in many sizes, hoping I could get it to work for my shape without making my boobs fall flat or look too east/west or too pointy, and I finally made it work! I followed the advice of a fellow bratabase user, and bought this in a size smaller than I normally wear, and it fits great. The stretch lace is super accommodating to tissue, so it works well even though it's a smaller cup than I normally go for. The band is a bit tight, like how Panache bras always start out, but ... after some wash and wears, I'm confident it'll be just fine. The shape this provides me is very round and slightly minimized, but I'm definitely ok with appearing a bit smaller. Also of note, the straps are not bothersome at all! Even at 5'10 and with broad shoulders, Panache bras always rub my armpits raw after a few hours of wear.
I do think Panache is taking some feedback and improving the fit of their bras. The cups on the Andorra are deeper than similar years, and the wires aren't *as* wide. I'm really excited to have this work for me, because I love lace bras, and I really love the bright colors this bra has come in as of late. Now off to buy all the Andorras I can find. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />

This bra fits well, but ultimately I returned it because the horizontal seam shows through two layers of clothing, and the wings/sides itched/scratched my skin.

Omg! I love this bra! It is super comfy and fits like a dream. However, any smaller and I don't think it would fit. My bigger breast wants to quadboob but just barely doesn't however I am also on my period and just got it yesterday so it could be because of that. I recently found out that none of my bras fit me (32g, I had been putting them on wrong, breast tissue sitting under band and over sides) and only had one bra that fit. Meaning I got to go bra shopping! And this is what I found. My only concern is that it have a ... fairly open lace pattern and I worry that my nipple rings will get caught but so far that has yet to happen. Over all I couldn't be happier with this bra. I want to get more in different colors.
** Be warned, the band is very snug. If you are on the upper end of your band size I would suggest sizing up in band. I am a 32 who can wear 30 so it works ok for me but just keep that in mind

Another nice Andorra! I love the colors they come in, so beautiful! Sadly this was too large in the band and too small in the cup.

I went to a local specialty shop AND THEY SELL "NORMAL" BRANDS!!! (freya, fantasie, parfait, panache) Obviously, I was very excited to discover this place. Most specialties sell only very expensive bras. Well, I was trying on different bras, feeling like I had just won the lottery, when I came across this beauty. I was surprised a panache 32GG fit, they are such a strange brand to figure out. I am a 30 band size and will be modifying the band to be smaller. It fit well and looked good on. The straps are set a little wide but not horribly so (not as wide as the curvy kate romance bra). I can't say this bra is wonderfully comfortable, the lace is itchy, especially around the gore and side straps. It FITS though. And I'm tired of firing into the dark by ordering online! So, this is part of my collection now. I am hoping that a good wash might soften this bra out, maybe it's just been tried on too many times ya know?

This bra fits in the band but is uncomfortable because the cups are too shallow. Not the bra's fault - just not compatible with my boob shape!
