Description

Lots of you tell us that this is the best T-shirt bra you've ever worn. It’s moulded and lightly padded so it gives a really smooth, rounded shape (as well as the extra job of covering your nipples!). The microfibre fabric makes it feel soft and silky and the seam-free wings and padded hook and eye make it super-comfortable to wear. You can even change the straps to wear it as a crossover back if you prefer a racerback look or find your straps sometimes slip off your shoulders - bonus!

Doesn't fit

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

The cup is too small, or too flat, or both. My boobs don't really fit in there. The bra is flattening them and pushing the flesh outside.

Dreadful bra

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I have worn the porcelain elan balconette bra for years and it was faultless. I recently bought a new one , was fitted in a shop and recommended a larger cup size (sad face). The new bra is truly awful. I agree with everything the two previous reviewers say. The cups sit awkwardly, the wires dig in viciously enough to cause considerable pain. Shame on the manufacturer

New style is so disappointing

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I agree with others... this was my go-to style for years but the new style is no match. For me the fit is ok but it is the quality that is so disappointing. Like others after a couple of washes the top of the cups have turned outwards so they are no longer smooth at all. I've moved on to Freya Idol instead.

The new version is awful

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I've had my pair of new-style Porcelain bras for a few months now, so I thought I'd weigh in on the discussion of the new style. It sucks. I could never have imagined feeling so genuinely gutted about a bra. Bravissimo should change the description, because this style used to be the 'best t-shirt bra we've ever worn', but this is NOT THE SAME BRA. Literally everything that was good about it has changed. The straps are wider and uncomfortable, not the soft and elegant straps they used to be. The way they are attached to the cup is also very different: it used to be a smooth transition with the strap kind of continuing along the side, now they are just sewn together. The shape of the cups is weird and not as flattering, certainly not as comfortable as before. The material is more stiff and the fabric more shiny. After a few washes, the cups on both of my new-style bras began to lose their shape so that the edges are turned outward and are showing under every t-shirt. Sweat and water stains now show very easily. This is NOT the same bra and I am sorry, but they are not equivalent. The original was perfect, this is a fraud. Gutted!

Don’t fix what isn’t broken!!

As a 36G I have loved this bra for years as a day to day staple and have owned dozens. Since this last update with the crossover straps it’s just not the same, not as comfortable, feels less secure as the straps pop off sometimes and the thicker padding in the moulded cups leave odd lumps and bumps under your clothes now. Had to return them and now on the hunt for a new T-shirt bra. Please bring the old one back Panache!!

I'm in love

I'm in love with this bra! As a HHish cup, I have a tough time finding smooth, moulded bras but this one fits perfectly (well, as close as I can get, anyway) and lifts nicely! I highly recommend it and will definitely be getting more! I usually wear a 34HH (depending on brand and style) and the 36H fit great. A HH would be better as there is the slightest bit of fullness at the top but as the bra stretches, it won't be a problem.

Great service, great bra!

I popped into the Brighton store to find a simple smooth bra that could also be worn with a racer back style...and this was the beauty the very helpful assistant found for me. I'm glad I asked as it was out the back. At first glance, it's not much to look at but it felt soft. Once on, I was thrilled with the natural shape and lift it gave me. The straps are fine, I haven't had any issues with them. I also love the equally soft shorts-style knickers. I am now buying it in another colour. Thanks Bravissimo!

Really disappointed that Bravissimo changed the shoulder straps

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

I used to love the Panache bra. It was my favourite... but not anymore. Bravissimo changed the shoulder straps from padded straps to a simple elastic ones. The straps now sink into your shoulder and leave marks (and hurt) like any other bra. Why??? Really disappointing.
