PanacheClara Bra


4.2 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 84 reviewsRead all reviews


This opulent full cup bra is one of our best-selling styles. It offers good support without being too covering and gives a rounded, forward-facing shape thanks to the internal side sling. The all-over stretch lace moulds to your unique shape so it’s a great option for those of us who have one boob bigger than the other (which is most of us!).

Perfect but flawed

I think I've probably reviewed this bra before. I had a fitting at the Solihull shop when I was in England in April because my size has fluctuated with my general weight. I love the Clara bra and I've had four before. My fitter, wonderful as always, was actually quite taken aback at how well the bra in fitted me. I was as happy as can be but it wasn't in stock in the cream that I wanted, so it was sent to me at my home in France free of charge. I was pleased and impressed. Unfortunately after about three wearings, a wire poked out. I sent it back, it was decided it was a manufacturing fault and I was sent a replacement. The same thing happened again. I sent it back again, but pointed out that at 12 euros a time, I was spending nearly enough for another bra. So my postage for this one return was reimbursed, plus the price of the bra. I actually would have chosen to have another one in blush pink had I been asked, but as it is, I was 12 euro out of pocket and still no new bra. It won't put me off, however - this is still my favourite style and I have faith that the same thing won't happen again!

Eye came loose three times!

I have a few of the Clara style and needed an update. Upon ordering the usual size it was clear that I needed a slight size change. The bra is still lovely and a perfect fit, once I adjusted the size. However, after three attempts and 5 mins wear the eye that the hook goes into came loose out of the stitching. I cannot fault Bravissimo customer service they have been wonderful, however I have had to give up on this style, which is the best I have ever found. It would have been nice if Panache had looked into the issue and responded. There is definitely a quality issue as my other Clara bras are old and are still fully intact. Now I am in search of a new style....

One of my favourites

I love the Clara, and so far have had a total five (!) in different colourways - nude being my latest purchase. I've always taken a cup size up from e.g. Panache Jasmine or unpadded Cleo bras, so I'm not sure if I'd call it true to size (if there is such a thing - I'm often a 30F, but wear also at least two other sizes, depending on the brand!) It's a very light shade of beige, so might be too bright for darker complexions. It has the same lux lace feel as the other colours imho, but surprisingly it fits a bit differently than the other two Claras I have & wear regularly (black/grey & cobalt blue) - the cups seem a tiny bit larger and for some reason the centre gore isn't entirely comfortable (never had this issue with the other bras). I hope this disappears with wear. About the briefs, as mentioned by another reviewer - I have those for Panache Jasmine in a size 12, so took the same size here and they are at least a size larger.

New style briefs

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

I’ve reveiwed Clara before and nothing’s changed! I love it, I own an indecent amount of them, the grey and cream is beautiful. It’s the briefs I need to tell you about! They have changed style, they now have a seam up the back and the elastic round the legs is much slacker, making them smoother under clothes. The side is wider too. But the sizing is way out, much bigger, much much bigger! I mean on my normal 16 they are a good 3” bigger. I had to make an unnecessary trip back to the store because I didn’t try on, why would I, I own many pairs already. Panache could have informed Bravissimo of the change! The positive side is I am now a size 14! Beware girls, if you love your briefs to match your bra go for a smaller brief on this colour way.

Lovely bra but .....

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

This is such a lovely bra. I have it in various colours but this time I bought it in Ivory. It’s a lovely fit and feels very supportive. I’ve only worn it a few times but both wires have come out under my arms making it uncomfortable to wear. Very disappointing as I usually love them.

Wires came out

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I loved this bra, purchased Ivory; wore a handful of times and the wire came out. Spoke to a very helpful assistant who said that as I had machine washed it that it was probably down to me. As I loved it and it fitted so well I purchased another, again in ivory, 3rd wear the wires came out again (this time hand washed!) I have also got this in Heather with no wire problems.

I was interested to read Sonia's review of 29/5/18 re a wire becoming loose. I bought the same bra on 15/4/18 and exactly the same has happened to me. It has now been returned for exchange. There clearly seems to be a design fault with this bra? This is quite disappointing Bravissimo and would like to hear your view?

Just bought this in nude and it’s fantastic, wore it last night and you couldn’t see a thing with my top on.. was a bit snug but I’m sure it will stretch in time
