PanachePorcelain Elan Balconette Bra


3.7 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 94 reviewsRead all reviews


Lots of you tell us that this is the best T-shirt bra you've ever worn. It’s molded 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!

Please Bring Back The Old Style

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

After bra hunting for years, I was ecstatic when I discovered Panache Elan and have worn this almost daily for years. I have a small back and this was the only bra that fit me so well. I used to restock my supply every few months. Please, please bring back the old style. The new style just doesn't cut it. The top part of the cup did not keep it's shape after a few washes and the overall fit is just such a disappointment. It also doesn't sit as well and is a lot bulkier. Please, please Panache, bring the old style back! Please!

So Disappointed with New Style

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I read some reviews recently on the Porcelain Elan moulded bra and despite warnings of a change for the worse, I ordered a couple online after not buying it when fitted in the store. I am really surprised to find I agree with the negative reviews on the newly updated fit. This used to be my wardrobe staple bra! So sorry I will be returning my recent order, the new style is dreadful! The fit is not rounded like it used to be, the quality of the fabric is not excellent like it used to be, what a disappointment! I hope Panache will take on board all of the feedback on this bra, and that the old style and fit will be brought back.

So soft

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

Such a smooth soft material. Nice sleek shape and good support. I would absolutely love this bra if it weren't for not being able to get the wire to sit right against my rids... Can not seem to get comfortable in it because of that... Very sad.

Just what I wanted!

I have been looking for a bra for months that is simple and gives me a nice shape. This is it! It’s lovely and smooth, giving you a nice rounded shape rather than being pointy! Also doesn’t make me look huge which many bras do.

Panache response was disappointing!

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

This bra used to be a staple of mine. It was the best thing I owned as a large breasted woman. The new style is horrendous and I agree with my fellow wearers. I wrote to Panache for an answer and the response I got was that they've made the changes for 'smoother appearance', 'better hanger appeal' and 'more premium look'. If these are what you are prioritizing, it doesn't seem like your bras are 'crafted for fit'. Happy to broadcast the email I got somewhere.

Disappointed in the change

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

This was my favourite bra, then it changed. The new fabric and style is not as good. I found the top of the bra curled outwards after a few washes. I thought it was just me, and made sure they did not go in the machine or dryer, made no difference. Very disappointed.

Very comfortable and gives a good shape

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

This Elan bra is very comfortable. I find moulded bras the best as they are comfortable, give a good shape and are supportive. Whenever I try a non-moulded bra I always find them uncomfortable with less padding round the wire and I immediately revert to the moulded bras again. I wish the moulded bras could have printed patterns on them so they could look pretty and more special as they are quite plain.

Doesn't fit

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.
