This bra is pretty (and a great bright turquoise color), but I think the full cup just isn't the right shape for me. Pros: Hurrah to Panache for a comfortable band with soft netting all the way around and long straps that adjust all the way up and down. I have a v-shaped back, and going up a band size works better for me in this bra. My underbust measures 33", but I'm more comfortable in the 36E. The lace is a bit scratchy at first, but I think it would soften up if I was going to keep it and wash it. I'm not a huge fan ... of the all-around lace that frames the cups, but that's mostly aesthetic — I think all the scallops look overwhelming on my short frame.
Even though the gore is quite narrow, it still cuts in a bit at the top and I don't think it would be comfortable for all-day wear. While the wires are very close to wide enough and long enough for my boobs, they're still sitting on a little bit of breast tissue. That's normal for me because the tissue extends all the way under my arms. I'm hoping more of it will migrate forward someday.
Panache seems to have wires that extend nice and wide to the underarms, but are pretty narrow at the base of the cup, so I get a bit orange-in-a-glass-y. It's not really enough to bother about, but combined with the other features that aren't quite right, this one is going back. The plunge Andorra works SO much better for my shape.
