This non-wired style from Panache is pretty on the outside, and super comfy on the inside! The lace-covered mesh cups are lined with soft jersey fabric and it has six rows of hooks, so you can adjust the fit to feel as secure as you’d like to.
This is a pretty and comfortable wireless bra. You will get a decent uplift and a definite cleavage. I bought this based on reviews for after a lumpectomy but had to go and buy the Ava soft cup instead. Why? When you put the bra on it lifts and brings together your boobs into a cleavage. After my operation this was really uncomfortable as this put a 2 direction strain on the wound. Also the seams on this went right over my scar. If you have had a biopsy you will have a sense of where the scar will be so study the close up photo. It says it is smooth but there was enough seam for it to irritate me as soon as the dressings were off. I think because it pulls you up and in, this bra is tight under the armpit where my arm hurt most post op (sentinel node). Lastly and (doh) i was lucky that the lump came from my larger boob so I dropped a size. i had a brilliant fitting with Steph in Cardiff and found the Freya idol most comfortable once you are back out and abut.
I have 3 different types of arthritis my shoulders are in constant pain, have taken to staying at home and leaving off the bra. At 38gg guess you know what that is like. So nice to be free of wires and not pulled up so much. As a non underwired bra this is very good. Will save the wired bras for special occasions only. All so tried the sleep bra at bravissamo it's heaven.
I am delighted to have found this bra. After a lumpectomy and about to undergo radiotherapy I need a really comfortable non-underwired bra and this one is the best yet. The lace is lovely but the lining is completely smooth so it doesn't irritate my wound. I have gone up a back size and I was really pleased to see the multiple hook settings so I will be able to tighten it when all has settled down and I'm not so sensitive. The shape is not bad, the support is good and best of all I can hardly feel I'm wearing it. Fantastic.
I've wanted a pretty, comfortable and easy to wear non-wired bra for ages, and this looked like it - on the picture! However, on me, it looked awful.I tried the 34G and the 36F. There was little or no support, and if I adjusted the straps to hitch up my boobs, the back rose up - which means that basically the bra just doesn't fit. In addition, the cups make the bust a very odd shape, saggy and pointed [if that's possible!] The 36F was even worse - absolutely no support. I think this bra is one for people with tiny backs and whose boobs aren't bigger than about DD or so.Disappointed!
I bought this a back size up from my usual bras (I'm a 32J and I bought this in a 34J) as I wanted something a bit more comfy for when I'm just slobbing round the house. I usually wear underwired bras - always fitted in person at the shop - but I feel very 'formal' in them. I thought it would look awful, but what would it matter as I'd be indoors. Well! It's so comfy and the shape it gives me is, actually, really nice. I'm sure the Bravissimo staff would say it's not fitted properly on me but for what I needed it for: just brilliant. Just ordered another one!
I was finding underwire bras were getting too uncomfortable during pregnancy and had my doubts that a soft cup bra could offer adequate support. I am thrilled with this bra, the support is much greater than I had expected, although the shape is not the same as with an underwire a tight tee shirt still looks great. I am so pleased that I can expect to be comfortable throughout the rest of my pregnancy.
I have had problems with Panache underwires in the past but thought I'd give this a try as I was going in to hospital and wanted some gentle support through my stay. I ordered my usual size however it was far too tight in the back and the cups were undersized, giving the double boob effect. Setting those issues aside, it didn't offer much support. The hooks were also a bit pokey which seemed to be independent of the ill fit. I wore it a few times out of desperation as I didn't have anything else, but now that I'm recovered it'll go to donation. If you can get fitted in person it could work well.
I bought this to relax in the evening or for the day under baggier tops. As it happens, the fit is flattering enough for reasonably close fitting tops - though probably not anything revealing! It won't suit ladies who mind looking a bit pointy or triangular. It does push my boobs closer together than I'm used to (I usually wear a full cup). This is the only one of the current soft cup bras that I found comfortable after a few minutes wear - but everyone's different.
