Yay!! Just received this bra like 15 minutes ago and I already love it. This just goes to show how important correct fitting is. I tried this bra in size 30D previously, and tried the original Porcelain (Panache 3376) in 28E, and they both looked awful on me because of poor fit. (See my other review here: http://bratabase.com/browse/panache/porcelain-molded-seamless-underwire-3376/28E/ )
Finally, in size 30DD I have a winner. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have a nice t-shirt bra in my size. If you've seen my other bras, you know it's been a struggle.
I hope that in the future ... Panache will choose to make this bra in band size 28 (like the original Porcelain), because this bra has to be fastened on the middle or tightest hook for me. Most of my bras are size 30, but this band is very stretchy (see measurements).
The foam lining is thin (about 1/8" ) and light -- just enough for "camouflage" as it were. The straps, comfortable; and though they look very wide set, for some reason they feel good on me and I'm not very big. Could have something to do with them being somewhat cushioned.
The lace is gorgeous and sexy, especially for a t-shirt bra! It is also very soft and non-irritating. Definitely no machine washing for this baby. The cups are very round... that t-shirt shape which is becoming an American classic (our Continental cousins don't seem to be so bothered by seams and a natural cone shape as we American girls generally are).
Summertime is here, and this should be a great item for the hot weather because the cups have a cotton blend lining and the bra overall is lightweight. My Tisha bra (Le Mystere 955), though flattering, feels like an industrial clunker next to the Porcelain Lace. I'll be having fun with this one.
Purchased from Her Room in late Spring 2010. (Incidentally, this will be my last order from this retailer for a long, long time. I will not recommend them because of customer service issues. Don't worry though! This bra is also available at Bare Necessities, Breakout Bras, and Nordstrom, among others.)
*** UPDATE ***
I've been wearing this bra for a couple weeks now and I still love it... I even ordered another one from Breakout Bras. Highly recommended.

I have wide, even breast with tall roots.
I was actually surprised this worked for me! I think there is some space in the bottom of the cup, as if it is too projected, but it doesn't seem to create a problem. There is wrinkling at the bottom of the cup that is apparent when not wearing the bra--seems to be a result of the sewing of the outside fabric to the cup; I'm not sure.
This bra doesn't seem to cut in much, if at all, to my tall roots (which is what I expected to happen!). The bra material is very nice to the touch and comfortable to wear. Gives a great shape. I love the feel of band.

I bought this in my quest for a darker nude (tan?) bra that actually fit me. And it fits me... but just not the way I'd like. I can't pinpoint what's wrong... maybe the top is slightly big (though the 30D quadboobed so I don't know) but while it's wearable, the shape it gives me is slightly odd. Plus the straps sit right on the ends of my shoulders so I spend most of my time pushing them up. As a result I haven't worn it more than the one time when I first got it. It's a comfortable bra but it just doesn't work for me.

I wanted this to be my new go to bra. I bought it in blush and it is adorable. Sadly the cups are way too small, at least one, if not two cup sizes.

I've been a fan of the Panache Porcelain for a while so when I spotted the Porcelain Lace on sale I couldn't resist. I'm not a big fan of moulded bras generally, this is one of the few I like as the moulding is fairly thin - it does not add any size at all, my overbust measurement with this bra on is exactly the same as when I'm wearing a soft cup bra. I also like that the tightly closed cup stops it from gaping if I'm leaning over or hunched over a desk. The outer cup is very smooth as is the inside, very comfortable to ... wear with no itchy fabric.
The band on this is a bit stretchier than the regular Porcelain but this isn't an issue for me as the regular one is a little snugger in the band than I really need anyway. Other than that the fit is similar to the regular porcelain, only difference with this is that the lace on the band will probably show through thin fabrics - again not really an issue for me as I'll mostly be wearing it for work and my uniform is thick enough to hide it.
ETA: I am now wishing I had paid closer attention to the fit of the band on this. It's definitely bigger than the regular Porcelain and I am already into the tightest hooks. Next time I will definitely size down to a 28 band to get more wear from the bra. Since I am stuck with this one for now, I've ordered a Rixie Clip from eBay to extend the life of this one.
