PanachePorcelain Elan Balconette Bra


3.6 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 98 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!

I ordered this bra based on reviews and colour I wanted. I felt disappointed when it arrived as it was plain which I knew but looked enormous. It was underwhelming looking but when it was on gave a perfect shape and hold underneath the dress I wanted to wear it with. This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn and can see it becoming a favourite everyday bra.

I love these bras I have 6 of them but the last one I bought the stitching came away at the underwire part. Very disappointing as I’d only had it for 4 weeks and the wire cut my skin had to throw it out. I don’t normally write reviews but given that I obtained an injury from this bra I feel it’s justified.

So comfy but shows up stains!

This bra is so comfortable for everyday wear and gives a perfect rounded shape. I had trouble finding a bra that wouldn't give me the 'four boob' look but this one worked. The only disappointment is that it shows up stains, in particular sweat stains which is not good in these warmer months and retracts somewhat from the good feeling of wearing a well-fitting bra.

The only bra I ever want to wear (but I loved the old straps!)

I've had two of these in black and nude for five or so years, and just bought another one in blue. It is still my absolute favourite, to the extent that if this line is ever discontinued, my quality of life will be seriously affected. Will order another black and nude and a wine one soon. I have tried many, many other styles, and nothing ever comes close to the comfort, support and fit of this one. It is also reasonably elegant and I can wear it under all of my deep V tops. However, I do agree with other reviewers that the shoulder straps used to be prettier and more comfortable. We'll have to petition Panache to change them back.

This is the first time I've worn a t-shirt bra and not spilled out over the top or had excessive "back fat". I honestly love this bra as it doesn't show through a tight fitting top and I'm coming back to purchase in another colour! Seriously in LOVE.

I have this in nude and blue and it is so comfy and I wear it everyday. The blue is really pretty. I struggled with a style I liked and this bra gives a longer look rather than the old bra I had, the idol, which pushed me out to the side a lot. It's just really comfy and gives good support AND SHAPING (very important to me)

What have you done to the Porcelain bra!

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I went shopping for my usual Porcelain bra and they told me this was the new addition: but what have they done to it! The old style Porcelain bra was perfect and has been a staple addition to my wardrobe for years! The straps on this new one are a cheaper material and are so much wider- not a great choice for wearing under summer top at all. The material shows up more stains so they look old after about 5 minutes of wearing regardless of how carefully you wash it. Please bring back the old design or at least incorporate the old thinner and comfy strap design! so disappointed with this. Now I dont have any bras that are comfortable to wear.

All time favorite bra!

This has been my favorite bra for years now. It fits perfectly under a t-shirt or any clothing, it gives great separation and a smooth, forward looking shape without being pointy. I was very sad I couldn't find something similar in a nursing style, so had to forget them for 2 years. Now I'm back to them, however still not fitting perfectly into an H cup in my new, almost-after-nursing body. Please, please make bigger cups (and nursing style as well)!
