As strapless bras go, this one's okay. Not my favourite, but better than most I've tried. It's quite projected and closed on top. I think the cups run pretty true to size. The deepest part of the bra is near the centre. Empty, the bra looks kinda pointy. On, the bra looks very saggy and pointy - like a witch's nose in profile.
The band is lined with something that I think is supposed to keep in from slipping down. But unlike the silicone you find on most strapless bras, this has no stickiness to it. It's very smooth and I think it contributes to the bra wanting to ...slide down.
On the plus side, the seams in the cups are pretty low profile. I think it would be pretty invisible under most clothing.
The bra fits and doesn't slide down too, too much. I think this bra would work well under a structured dress, like some bridesmaid dresses. But for under the lightweight, cute summer clothes I was hoping to wear with it, the shape it gives is a deal-breaker. Read more 70 more words
After my old strapless (H&M) started to get too tall (and a bit too big in the band) I was looking for a new one. The boutique I visited did not have it in my usual 32F so I tried it in 32FF and it fits surprisingly well.
This is a lined, seamed, 3-piece cup which offers good projection for a strapless. It seems to work best for short-rooted people - I rarely see a lined bra that doesn't gape on top - and gives a slightly pointy shape. The band runs half a size tight - on the tighter side of comfortable for me but not painful. ...The "nude" color is just nude to the whitest of white people (I happen to be one), it has a slight yellow-ish tint and the exchangeable straps (fully adjustable) are even lighter in color.
The padding is slightly too much for my taste (the less the better - if unlined strapless bras existed I would buy them). And as usual, I cut off the bow in the middle as soon as the pictures were taken. Read more 76 more words
It ...has a high gore which I like, but may not work for a lot of people who need low gores for strapless bras.
I worry that the straps would not stay on if used--the hooks don't seem to fit as securely as seen in many other bras. However, the loops where it hooks onto the bra are much closer to the center than in many strapless bras, which is awesome! This prevents the straps from being too wideset. That was a great move on Panache's part, as many companies put them too far to the side. Read more 97 more words
Finally, a strapless that fits me! The shape of the cups is good for a rounder breast. I've been having problems fitting into strapless bras with a deeper plunge in front because the skin on the underside of my breasts is very thin, and thusly tend to take she shape of the container they are placed in. Even in cups that otherwise fit me, my breasts want to drip out of the center of the cup, causing its own unique quadboob situation. These cups are a bit pointy for my taste, which I think is largely due to the seams across the cup. I would prefer if the surface of my bras were all seamless, but I'm just picky I suppose. It's comfortable as far as strapless bras go - I'll still breathe a sigh of relief when I unhook it at the end of the day, but it passes the jumping-jack test and stays in place so I am satisfied!
This was my first fitting strapless bra. The band was taken in about .5 inches on each side when I bought it, making it more of a 29E-ish. I didn't notice it when I bought it, but the bottom of the cups wrinkle a little. Maybe if I shift a little more I'll fill it out a little better. This is a plain, nude bra, and very function focused. It came with straps, but I don't know where I put them... The cup seams are a little visible under light clothing. Band hasn't noticeably stretched, and I've felt comfortable wearing it even when I didn't need a strapless bra. It gives a little bit of a lower rounded shape, but that could be because the cups are a little big on me. Wider wires.
Anyone with large boobs will tell you finding a strapless bra that fits THEIR own boobs perfectly is HARD!
I read feedback on this bra and decided to go with the 30H. Was disappointed because the cups are way too wide for my boobs, since the cups are so stiff and fitted, my boobs just sit in the cups and support themselves instead of being supported by the cup. I think a 30G might fit better. Will try again when I have more $!
Comes with detachable multiway straps, so that is a plus. Mine is the nude color.
Nice black strapless bra, but it was not supportive (which was kind of expected). The cup shape is nice and it is well constructed. The band size seems to stretch a little more than usual for a 36. Pretty comfortable for a busty strapless bra.
Evie has three-section cup construction, and is relatively utilitarian, but still with the bow, and something about the way the sections are divided feels Parisian somehow. You can see in the photos that there’s just a smidge of wrinkling at the IMF, indicating a slightly too shallow spot at the wire, but wow, it’s close. The cup is rather closed on top, to the point of almost cutting in like @Sculptresse Dana, but it isn’t uncomfortable. When the band is adjusted (I didn’t notice when I took the photo that it was that wrinkled), it’s comfortable enough: the squeeze is there, but not in the same ...way as Dana. The band and underwires are Panache kind of firm, which is a far cry from goddessadelaide, but the wires are tightly enclosed in the channels to avoid jabbing. Normally Panache bras veer on being too tall at the gore for me, but Evie isn’t. An unexpectedly nice touch for Evie is that the hooks are rounded, instead of rectangular, which I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. I'm planning to try Evie in a 38F--will measure and review that one separately. Read more 89 more words
This bra seems well-made, but has an utilitarian look. I wish it would have a lace detail, a prettier shade of beige or at least a satiny fabric...
I needed a strapless bra for a special dress, so I bought this one. However, none of the strapless bras I tried did actually fit well.
The Evie was the most projected I tried and as I was slightly thinner it worked well enough... as long as I don't swoop and scoop much. It does quadboob on the top line. I would need it to be more open a bit, but still projected like this one. I tried several cup-band combinations but ...none was perfect. I did need a projected bra for that dress (a flowy one, so I needed the bust projection to make it look right) .
(I also tried the Cleo Koko in several sizes, which gave me a beautiful round "butt" cleavage but made my breasts very flat and cut on the outer part (near the armpits). I tried a lot of sizes and even when the cup was already a little empty it still cut near the armpit. It could have been my choice if the dress had a V-neckline. The Porcelain was worse than both these).
