Description

Lots of you tell us that the black, white and nude versions of this bra are the best T-shirt bras you've ever worn so we hope you'll love it in this stunning Wine colour just as much! The microfibre fabric makes it feel really soft and silky to the touch 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 - bonus!

The new version is awful

Review published on:

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!

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.

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

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.

Very Happy!

Was a bit iffy when I purchased this bra online but boy was I wrong! Really comfy and reliable! Pretty much wear it all the time since I bought it! Gives good support and is a great everyday, all hours option! Really convenient as it is seam free so you can wear it without a second thought under more delicate clothes. Very happy with my purchase! Will buy other colors too!

Don't understand

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I love this bra, have worn them as my every day bra for the past 7 years. Little disappointed with the latest remake of the bra, I don't understand why Panache have made it with straps that unhook at the back. The bra is not designed to be a multiway cross back etc so why have it unhook, just makes it uncomfortable. Other than that I still am very happy with the bra, it fits well and is very supportive.

I have worn this bra for years and years as it’s the most flattering and comfortable t-shirt bra on the market in my size. I genuinely don’t know what I’d do without it. It had a change of fabric a few years back and the straps became clipped to allow for cross back wear. Personally I think the older version was better all round. It held its shape more and didn’t show up sweat marks etc. I have a small back so love the small straps but don’t like the fact they can be changed as they occasionally now pop out of the clips. Don’t reinvent the wheel would be my message to the manufacturer!!
