this is a beautiful bra and looks great on but even within 5 minutes of wearing the front wires would dig in to my chest painfully and I had to take it off. They are very stretchy and don't have great support. I will be returning these bras unfortunately as they are just too uncomfortable
I have the Clara bra in the silver grey and love it. It fits beautifully and gives me a nice shape. It has washed well and stayed soft. However, I ordered exactly the same size in the pale blue as it was in the sale and was disappointed when it came. The sides are deeper and so it digs in under my arms. When I compare the two bras the pale blue one is around half cm to 1cm deeper under the arms than the silver grey. Additionally, although the cups fit, they seem to give a rounder shape which didn't look quite so good. When I spoke to someone on customer services she suggested that as different colours had come out at different times then perhaps the style had been ever so slightly changed. It was a real shame as I thought I could pick up a bargain in the sale. I would have given this a 5 star rating if it was just for the silver grey one but have knocked off a star due to these problems. Whilst I understand companies might change a style why not give it a new name so that once we find a style that works we can have confidence when ordering the same again.
I tried this one in the store after seeing it and I loved it, it has a beautiful mix of lace and a metallic purple. However, after wearing it for a day I found that the stretchy lace detail at the top of each cup didn’t hold the shape at all and seemed to bulge and spill out.
Amazing purchase. I can't recommend it enough! It is quite true to size and the design is very flattering. Gives great shape & support.
The Clara bra is a lovely style, very supportive and looks high quality and durable. Unfortunately it was completely wrong for me, the band was tight, and while the cups fitted, they squashed my breasts against my chest in a wide shape, rather than out of the front. I bought it for the sling/forward facing effect, but sadly it didn't do that for me.
At last! The struggle to find a bra that is supportive enough but also gives a nice round shape rather than that horrid maternal looking triangle effect is over... I’m between 30F and 32E but in this bra definitely go for the smaller band size. I’d say this bra is true to size in the cups. My only tiny criticism would be that the straps could be wider as they are holding up a lot!
Love this bra. Sizes perfectly and fits like a dream. Although the fabric is dainty, it's super supportive.
Fabulous rounded upfront shape. Such a great supportive bra that you can forget you're wearing because of how comfortable it is. Love it so much....Please tell Panache they should use this to base more styles on.
