This bra came as part of the findig my size journey. No, my boobs are not gonna get smaller, so I don't think it would ever fit. Would probably try it in a larger cup and smaller band size.

This bra looks OK. The band feels tight enough on the loosest hook, which is good, but that's about where the good fit ends. The top of the cups, while not as "closed" as the Panache Porcelain Lace, are still noticeably closed off and so I get a bit of a weird shape there when viewed from the side... but it doesn't really show under tops. The straps, as I find with all Panache/Cleo bras, don't adjust long enough (and I'm 5' 2") so they feel too tight. The sides also cut into my underarm muscle after a while. So, this bra doesn't get worn often. Great color though!
Purchased from Figleaves Summer 2013.

I purchased two of these to replace my 2 old 30DD - Panache » Porcelain Lace (5726), which have worn out and no longer fit. The new ones fit even better than the Porcelain Lace, because the band is a bit tighter and the cups are not as closed (no quadboob!). Since I am petite, most bras rub me under the underarms, but this one doesn't do so anywhere nearly as bad as my other bras. In fact I am so happy with it that I have been wearing it since receiving it earlier today, tags since removed of course. The coral color is beautiful.

This bra was the most awkward fit ever. Definitely not suited to shallow FoB breasts.

Overall, a more comfortable and better fit than the regular Porcelain for me. The band is a tiny bit firmer and doesn't stretch out as much. The cups are still pretty closed on top, but they don't cut in as much as the regular Porcelain does. I really love this bra and find it very flattering under clothing.
Edit: I recently gained a cup size and this no longer fits, but it's still a lovely bra. I might get a new one in a 30DD if I can find a good deal somewhere.

Great bra! I normally need a 30DD for my wide set boobs, but the 30D is wide enough in this bra. The color is amazing! The bra is very stretchy and comfortable. This bra is molded to push the breasts to the center. It felt weird at first since my breasts normally want to go to the sides where they are fuller, but I've gotten use to it and this is the most flattering bra to wear under knits!

This is a design that seems made for me. Unlike the Panache Porcelain, Viva's straps are sewn onto the tops of the cups, so rather than make a circle around the side of the body, they pull the cups upward onto my shoulders. This slight difference in design makes a huge difference in fit for me. The straps do not fold into my underarm tissue as they do on the regular Porcelain. The regular Porcelains straps are sewn at a 45 degree angle to the tops of the cups, while Viva's straps are at a 90 degree angle to the tops of the cups.
The ... underwires completely enclose my breast tissue, the center gore is narrow, I don't get quadra-boobs or "escape" out the sides, I get a lovely "rounded, lifted" look, and it's comfortable! It's also very pretty (I have a bright red-coral one). In photos online (I live in US but purchase from a UK boutique) this bra appears to be thicker and "heavier" than it actually is. I'm so glad I took the chance on it. It's as lightweight as a moulded bra can be (much more lightweight than my other favorite moulded bra, Soma Sensuous Sides), and even though it's moulded, it doesn't feel "padded" at all. It forms to my shape. I love it!

As you would expect the fit with this is identical to the regular Panache Porcelain (which is one of my favourite bras). The only real difference with this is the pattern on the fabric and the lace trim along the top of the cups. I don't find the lace trim shows under fabrics, so if you like the Porcelain but want something pretty with a bit more colour this is well worth considering.
