|Strap width||1.5 |
MY SHAPE: round, projected, even, close set, on the narrow end of average root width.
THE TAKEAWAY: Best for shallower breasts or breasts that don't need much immediate depth. Full cup + stretch lace on top half is quite accommodating and I think would work well for the whole range of vertical fullness. High gore is no bueno for close set busts. Band is stretchy, consider sister sizing down if possible.
DETAILS: Partly because the fit issues in my 30E - Panache » Clara Full Cup Bra (7255) have become much harder to ignore since I've had a slew of really good fits lately, and partly just ... for fun, I decided to size up in the cup and give the Clara another shot in the new AW16 Slate/Teal colorway. My hope with sizing up in the cup is that I might get a smidge more depth and that would alleviate the bottom of the cup wrinkling I get in the 30E. No dice. While I daresay the top of the cup actually looks better (I get a touch of quadboobing in the 30E, but none in the 30F), everything else is all wrong: the wires are about 1/2" too wide, the gore is waaaay too tall and does not play nice with my center fullness, and what's with the fact that my nipples are STILL in the sheer portion of the cup? For real, what's with that?
Clara, you're elegant AF, but you just won't work for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

The band is tight enough for used 30, but I'd be more happy with 28 band. The cups are true to size, but not very projected at the bottom. Upper part of the cups is made of very thin and stretchy lace, so it accommodates perfectly to my breast shape. It's very comfy if you have some weight fluctuations or other size changes. The shape is not perfectly round, it's closer to natural. I like the color and nice lace, but the gore is too high.

I got this bra from a lovely btb member https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
The band is altered, so keep this in mind when looking at the measurements!
In terms of fit:
Altered band is perfect, but the cup is too small for at least one cup! The wires are pushed down a lot and my nipples are both at the edge of popping out and I get some incup quadding when wearing without the cotton pads. I placed them centered over my nipples, so you can see.. they are not where they are supposed to be in a full cup bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
I am planning on trying this bra a size up, as it's soo beautiful and the material is just soo soft and perfect! <3

Beautiful bra. Shallow at the very bottom - I went up to a 30f from a 30e, hoping that it might give a bit more projection, but it doesn't. The actual cup is now more comfortable though! I was quadboobing in the 30e, but it didn't really show due to the lace at the top of the cup being stretchy.
I still have a wedge of wrinkle at the bottom of the cup where my breasts are pushing the bra down. It's honestly not enough to make me send this back. It doesn't show under my shirts, and now that I'm a cup size up & my boobs can breathe a bit, I don't care.
This is supposed supposed to be pretty close to the same cut as the Andorra. I think I've been reading over at r/abrathatfits that the Andorra is more shallow than Clara.
TLDR: Beautiful. Forgiving lace top. Bottom of cup is shallow, not projected.

For reference I’m fob with slight to average projection and centre full. This is the first bra I’ve ever gotten that fits this well! I ended up getting it in a 30F which is my sister size as I was worried 28band would be too tight. After swooping and scooping its great, best fit I’ve ever had apart from the gore which is a tad too tall, and the bra itself is super cute in black. The upper half being stretch lace made it accommodating and to be honest if I got this in my true size it might’ve been a bit better. Though the fabric is a little itchy I’m sure it’ll be more comfortable the more it’s washed and worn.

Other than the gore width (I need it a tiny bit narrower) this is the perfect fit for me. I have above average projection, narrow and tall roots, and I’m close set and full on bottom.

This bra just hugs you. It has great support for a soft cup bra, is super comfortable, and makes me feel super sexy!

This is a secondhand bra, so that was not a big surprise for me that the band is stretch out for my measurements. To tell the truth, even new Clara is rather lose in 30 band for me.
But the cups fit good and give me naturally round shape. And I love this bra so much that I'm ready to alter the band if it is necessary. It is necessary and i will make the band fit.
The color is close to my perfect nude, but the lace is very visible under the white t-shirt.
I have the same bra in pale pink and this one in nude. I can't compare the bands, but the cups fit the same in both

The Clara in Cream/Nude has a slightly longer band than my Blush Pink Clara - it's a better band fit for me and the gore is a bit less pokey - but still too high for my liking. The lace on this version isn't contrasting, which makes this colourway less exciting, but it does disappear under white t shirts! I have tallish roots, even projection, center fullness and I'm low set. The cups don't come up high enough for me in this size - my nipples are above the apex .... so I think I need to try it in a 32F/30FF.
