This review is for the Panache Andorra Full Cup in 34GG. My ABTF size is 32G/GG (or more) depending on projection.
* Measured from 28.5 to 32 before the wires started spreading. As a 34 label I'd say this might run a bit small. You absolutely can stretch it more - but you might distort the wire size a little.
* Very firm.
* Have a mesh inner side sling. Looks like a half cup to me.
* 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 great when I tried it on upside down and backwards, I think it stretched easily.
* The gore tacked nicely. It was tall for me, but fine. I found the separation at 7/8ths of an inch to be a little wide for me, so would want to alter them to overlap.
* 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 seams do show under a thin shirt as you can see in my pics. It does give a nice shape for me.
* The straps are long enough, but I'm quite short at 5'4.
* The sides are too high for me but that might be because they come too far back rather than actual height.
* This bra is beautiful 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.

OMGOMGOMGOMG! Wire a *tiny* bit small, so pokes a little, but IT FITS!!!!!
Update: I've shrunk. The bra is too big on me now. The wire pokes and pokes. Love that the stretch lace allowed me to wear it for much longer, but it is finally just far too big for me.

This bra is great for me although a tiny bit too tight in the band. I am using an extender for now. I've also just ordered the 36g to try a bigger band with the same volume.

This bra digs into my armpits. Ugh!

The Panache wires strike again.

I love this bra even if it doesn't fit me.
I really wanted that I could wear this bra, so I altered its wire
because, at that time, I thought the wire was a bit wider for me, and it was the only problem.
I replaced the original wire with the other wire
(it's from Lepel Iris Fullcup Bra's;
much narrower like 2cm, and much shorter)
However, after I altered it, I figured out this bra just doesn't fit me.
I should have bought 34h or 32hh size of this!
ps. The cup size is a bit smaller than usual 34gg size, I think.

It could have been a perfect bra if I bought 34h.
My size is between 34g~34gg.
I purchased Freya and C.K's unpadded bra with this one.
All of them are 34gg size.
I found that Freya's and CK's bras are a 'little' bit baggy on the upper side because of the cup shape.
On the other hand, I got quadboobs as wearing andorra full cup bra.
And its wire is surprisingly wide considering its cup style.
(I expected a U shaped wire.)
I was disappointed because I read a ton of good reviews about this bra.
I love its side pannel which makes this very supportive.
The band is snug but really comfortable.
Its fabric looks and feels nice.
If I wore 32hh with a bra extender, this bra would fit perfectly...maybe.
Anyway I'll keep this bra.
I think it will fit with alteration like narrowing wires after me losing some weights.

(Purchased new without tags - don't remember where - probably ebay)
Fit mostly when I got it about 5 months ago. Cups were too tall, but otherwise everything was fine.
Since I got it new without tags, the band did fit a lot more snugly than the other one I have. Fast forward 5 months and I've lost more weight and sometimes have to wear it on the middle eyes, depending on what part of my cycle I'm in. It may or may not have stretched out also, but I never wore it more than once every couple weeks, so I kind of doubt that's the reason it's too ... big on me now.
Wearing it tighter makes the strap placement more in my arms. Yes, I did say arms, because they're naturally far enough out of my body frame they are actually on the outsides of my armpit creases unless I pull them in.
The cups are too tall and too big. (I just need a different size.) The stretch lace makes it still wearable for when I've forgotten to wash my bras and I need a neutral-colored one. Like right now. Which is the only reason I'm not measuring it. I came to add the fit and review and figured out I forgot to add the bra to begin with. Oops. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Wire is too wide.
Center gore is too high for me and my short torso/high-set boobs.
Side wires seem like they'd be fine if they were in the right place on my body. It's hard to judge when they're that far back on me.
Whenever I wash it and take pics, I'll list it.

Well made, pretty if full coverage is your thing. Even though it is all lace, it is reasonably practical under most clothing. This one is a pinkish/coral color.
I feel the cup is small but the band is a good, firm fit (maybe runs a smidge larger than the pearl in a 34G). The wires come up awfully high on the sternum and under the armpits, and they seem to angle inward (although not as much as the pearl. I have bent the wires out at both ends as well as rounding the middle so that the fit is better so I've left out the measurement of wire width.
The band seems firm enough, almost too tight under the armpits, but it's being pulled up & away from the intramammary fold because there's not enough boob room. A 34 might be fine in an HH cup but I don't care for the amount of coverage I get on my already-short torso.
I want more lift and centering than I get in this bra.

I got this bra about a week ago online because I don't have any stores near me that sell my correct size. This is my first correct fit bra so I'm not entirely sure how tight the band is supposed to be or anything. When I first got it, the band was very tight but I could still fit two fingers underneath so I guessed that it was probably how a correct band size was supposed to feel. It stretched a bit now and is much more comfortable and still very supportive so that's good. The cup size fits almost perfect. The top looks great, there is a ... slight gap at the bottom of the cup but it might just be because I have very wide boobs and it definitely does not affect the look or feel of the bra. The side underwire doesn't dig into my underarms, but the side of the cup does where it goes into the straps a little bit (if that makes any sense). Straps are fine and adjust well and surprisingly stay in place without digging in, I guess that's what happens when the band does all the work. The center gore lies flat, but does dig in a bit because I have no real separation between my boobs. Red marks after 8 hours of work, but I try to move the underwire closer to the sides so it doesn't go up as high and that helps a little. It's not unbearable, just annoying mostly. Other than that this bra looks very pretty, is very supportive and is pretty comfy all things considered. I just hope the lace on this bra will last a long time because lace isn't known for durability. All in all, good purchase.
