This is one of those times where it's important to note the colorway in review because it ends up fitting differently from the rest.
Duck Egg Clara is indeed an abberation in fit compared to all the other colorways. It does have more room at the bottom, the wires do fit all right in my IMF where they belong, unlike with Heather or Slate/Teal. It is probably too much to hope Panache would go back to this particular cut on further Clara colors, as overall I rather enjoy the look of Clara, and the bottoms are just great (unlike Jasmine, sadface).
With Clara I get a not outrageous but lifted, round appearance, and not exactly east-west but further separated look than Envy or Jasmine.

So lately Clara has had some lovely colors come out and a few months back I tried on Duck Egg blue because I read a review somewhere that noted it had more depth at the bottom than previous models.
I've tried on that colorway twice now, as well as Heather and Steel Blue. I can confirm that specifically Duck Egg blue has more depth than the other two, and probably all the previous models. (Got such a great deal on the Heather colorway I couldn't pass it up.)
Still, the Heather is comfortable and supportive. The color combo is lovely; something more than just a neutral. It sits just below ... my IMF with a little cup wrinkling and I have a slight triboob on one side in all three colorways. It's hardly noticeable, unless I'm looking for it. I've worn it a couple of full days without discomfort.
The bottoms are comfy, too! This is a damn shame seeing as how I am not a fan of the Jasmine bottoms where the Jasmine bras fit me so well. It's like I can have one or the other with Panache.
At some point (I guess soon?) I will go ahead and grab the Duck Egg colorway, because looks crazy good on me with my eye/skin coloration. I was not as thrilled with the Steel blue colorway on me as expected, so ultimately I'll take a pass knowing there's a shape mismatch anyway.

Fits like a dram. First time I've ever had a bra gore lie flat as someone with close set breasts. High and round. Feels a bit too formal a shape for under loose, draping clothing. Wish this shape was available with less lace.
I own in Olive/Black, Dove Silver or Grey or something, and Ice Blue. All needed a couple of washes to get rid of the starch before they were comfortable enough to wear all day, but since that's happened I've been able to fall asleep in them.

My current everyday bra and favorite. I own this bra in black and white and I love both the shape it gives me (centered, uplifted but not like two cakes on a plate) and the comfort – it literally is the only bra of mine that I can comfortably wear for an 11 hour day.

Too shallow at the bottom; not enough immediate projection.
