  1. Short version-
    Like the standard Porcelain, the band is not continuous, and the cups are seamless and molded. The contour material is a good deal thinner than an EM plunge or Freya Deco or padded half-cup, which has its ups and downs (feels lighter, but less nipple modesty). Fully adjustable straps!

    This bra stays in place during the day, and I had only a bit of spillage towards the middle after several hours (so far true of all plunge bras I’ve tried, because my tissue is on the soft side). The band is what I would call an ‘average’ 32, does not come up tight as many Panache bras do, ... but not as stretchy as the Freya bras I’ve worn. The straps did not seem as widely set as the standard Porcelain, but one’s mileage may vary. The cups fit just right in a 32G (what I wear in the majority of bras).

    There is fabric at the bottom of the cup where it doesn’t curve out at all, but this seems to be the design to provide support. It didn’t feel like the orange-in-a-glass effect which I get with some bras that have very little room at the bottom of the cup. The fabric doesn’t fold over, just tacks against the skin. It may not be for everyone, but suited me just fine and was calibrated for the appropriate size.

    Smooth and sleek, this works great for me under fitted or knit tops. The Porcelain Plunge doesn’t give my breasts a ton of lift or projection, but the shape is pretty round and front-and-center.

    38GG

    Didn't fit

    I purchased this bra in nude.

    Ever since finding out I was wearing a too small bra, I have been craving a nice plunge bra to wear as I had several in my too small size. Sadly, finding them in a 38GG can be rather tricky. So, when I found this bra I was excited!

    First off, it's a very nice bra too look at, though nothing fancy, and comfortable on.

    The straps only adjust on half the strap, which while slightly annoying, wasn't a big deal. I was able to have them at a comfortable length.

    The band was nice and firm, but comfortable. It felt very good on.

    I found myself ... feeling a bit odd about the cups. When I first put it on and scooped the ladies in, I thought it fit with just the slightest bit of gaping. However, after having it on for a little while, my breasts settled in, and the cups started to buckle and wrinkle like nobody's business. It still looked nice under shirts and the like, but just looking at the bra on me showed it clearly was too large. Which, I have to say, was odd to me, considering every other 38GG I've tried has fit quite nicely.

    So, I returned this bra and have requested a size 38G in exchange. We'll see how that goes.

    This bra is still lovely, and I would recommend it.

    28FF

    Didn't fit

    I decided to give the Panache Porcelain range another try after how awful the original porcelain bra fit on me, and this is just as disappointing. The main problem with the porcelain range is that the under-wires swoop down way too low and dig into my ribs. I've tried hiking the bra up, but it always ends up poking my ribs again. It's somehow both too small at the top of the cup and too large at the bottom, which I think is the shape of the wires again

    Purchased for $39 USD from Figleaves in November 2012, retails for $59 in the US @ bareneccesities.

    32E

    Didn't fit

    Pros:
    I really like a material of this bra: it's smooth and soft. Padding is thin, it prevents nipple showing, but it doesn't feel like a mini version of bullet-proof vest. The shade of nude is quite fair, which is good for me, because I'm very pale, but it could be problem under white button-downs for girls with darker skin tones.
    It's the only bra I ever tried which wires don't create any discomfort, so I definitely recommend it to girls who need wider wires. It's not only width of the cup - it's wires shape.
    Good lift and support.

    Cons:
    For me it's the shape of the cups. If they were more ... open and low it could be my Holy Grail in the bra world, but cups are quite tall and have a shape that suggests that they designed to encase more breast tissue in the top of the cup and in the middle of the chest. I have rather oval breasts which are very wide compared to their other dimensions, so this shape doesn't work for me. The bra lifts my breasts and pushes them to the middle, but there is still not enough breast tissue to fill the top of the cup. And tightening straps doesn't help because top of the cup just tries to cut into my pectoral muscle (but it's very firm, so all I've got from this attempt was a strange bubble near the top of the cup).
    So if you are like me - skip it. If you are wide, but not oval in the root - this bra could be for you.
    And it's boring.

    I'm going to try altering the cups, so they become more open. Wish me luck.

    UPD Done. Performed by seamstress, who removed the piping from the edge of the cups, then cut them, so they became more open and sew the piping back. It worked like a charm, so if you have the similar fit issue with this bra and can't return it that is the option to consider.

    28FF

    Didn't fit

    I love this bra. It is very comfortable and supportive and gives great shape. It is a little small in the centre, i.e. near where the cups meet in the centre my breasts bulge over the cup a little, butit doesnt show a bump under clothes, so I wear it anyway. Is a good everyday bra. Nothing fancy to look at, but good, everyday bra especially for under tight tops.

    It is nice and firm - i think a true 28

    Update - i bought this bra at the bginning of my bratabase journey and have since tried soooo many more bras but recently bought another one of these as i haven´t really found anything else that fits as well as this. It isn´t perfect - there is still some bulge in the centre but as i have tried more bras i realise this happens alll the time for me and at least this is supportive and comfortable. I would love to have something prettier and more fashionable but this is still the bra that I wear most often.

    30G

    Didn't fit

    This bra definitely fits me better than the porcelain in 30FF but I don't think the bottom of the cups are totally filled on this one. I'm wondering if I should give up on the porcelain bra as this is the third one I've tried and none of them seem perfect. This one is the closest I have come but it doesn't fit me perfectly. You can't tell under shirts, but it makes the lower half or my breast an odd shape since I'm not filling the cup. This doesn't happen to me with the Cleo Neve, but that bra is discontinued and I can't find a nude color in my size. Also I would like a bra that is a little more minimizing than that bra is.

      From an engineer's perspective, these cups collapse at the bottom because the wires sit too far apart. The mass of a breast needs to fit in curve of the wire as opposed to the right or left of the curve. Many bras would have fit me if the base of the wires were closer together. Alas, the overwhelming majority of bras set the wires 2" + apart at the base.

      Love4Pollinators that makes so much sense... it's hard trying but to figure out what my shape is, I don't know much about it and so trying bras has been trial and error. it would make sense why cleo neve fits better because the cups are closer together on that bra.

    Didn't fit

    PROS:
    Its a nice looking bra
    The straps are the comfiest I've ever tried; they have a lovely cushioning.
    Good side support, no east west shape.
    CONS: The band was riding up and fabric weirdly wrinkling at the back despite being hard to fasten :/
    Just didn't fit my splayed, full shape, left bust was bulging over cup
    Did not feel lifted or supported, the cups feel quite flimsy actually, for a moulded bra,
    Very empty and flat looking middle under t-shirt, like the Bermuda triangle between my boobs ;(
    I think I need a bra that lifts and hugs more so that the gap between my splayed boobs is hidden.

    • Ok, like a bermuda triangle between my boobs - you mean you WANT your boobs to look like one continuous 'bosom' instead of 2 separate breasts? I mean, breasts are supposed to have space between them? A little bit of cleavage is fine, but a properly fitted bra makes your breasts look like 2 separate mounds. I mean, a sports bra will make you look more like single mound, but its not usually considered a desirable look? and no cleavage there either.

    • LOL ...no... just don't want them to look flat or empty in the middle. I will have to take a pic in white shirt I guess... but I can see it :/
      Two separate mounds are fine in some bras but this one just looks weird and empty to me

      I'm willing to bet it's a major shape mismatch, since this bra is one of the shallowest bras on the planet and its very uncommon to be shallow at a 36FF.

    • lcl0706 thank you. Yes, seems just totally wrong shape for me :/ maybe too narrow cups as well.. I kind of like them a bit shallow though, to hold them in more firmly, if that makes sense :/

    Didn't fit

    The regular porcelain didn't fit me- the top dug in and sizing up didn't help, but I heard this one might just work. I was looking for a black bra where the straps wouldn't be too obvious with black spaghetti strap tanks.

    This bra is designed for really shallow breasts. The underwires are really wide- too wide for me. The top of the bra doesn't dig in, and has some give. The band is true to size, maybe even a little snug.

    I get some orange in the glass effect- I think probably because the wires are wide, and the bottom of the cups are really shallow.

    If it wasn't for the cup width and the shallowness, I'd say it's a pretty good bra. The straps aren't too wide, and the material is smooth.

    Fits

    This one fits fairly well in the cup but the underwire is a bit wider than my breast. The band size is perfect so the bra stays wear it should throughout the day and it looks great under clothes, but after wearing it awhile the wire digs into my rib along the outer edge and is a little uncomfortable.

    Too wide for my medium to narrow roots. Too shallow for my bottom heavy projected boobs. Very smooth and soft. Great for a tshirt bra.
