Thank you for your feedback.
I was extremely surprised to purchase a bra online and have it fit so well right off the bat.
I was looking for a great fitting bra without lining and with straps that stay up on my shoulders.
First bra in years that I've been able to find that fits me well.

    I really liked everything about this bra except that the cups were at least a size too small. Since my measurements indicate that this is what I should be, there's a chance this bra runs small. However, my size recently changed, so I'm still learning what works. If you are considering this one, I'd order the size you normally wear and the next cup size up. The band is perfect--stretchy enough to be comfortable all day--but if you like a firm band, you might consider going down a band size.

    Best suited for:
    Petite
    Narrow shoulders
    Full on bottom to balanced
    Those with skin that is sensitive to lace
    Those who need average-to-narrow wires and shallow cups
    Someone looking for a daily wear type bra

    For me, perfect would be this bra with deeper cups. I like the fact that the straps are placed narrow enough not to chafe or fall down, the wires aren't too tall, and there's no scratchy lace to contend with. Hopefully, all those things I love about it still apply when I purchase the bigger size.

    I ordered almost $1,000 worth of bras in different sizes from Amazon and this was the ONE that I kept. It was the only one that fit me well. I've had and breastfed two babies, so I have a lot of excess skin and "droopy-ness" and this bra does a great job of lifting and bringing it all to the center. I will say that the underwire does somewhat dig into my skin under my arms, but I'm a 32GG and I'm not sure there's a bra out there that wouldn't dig into my skin in someway. It's also very pretty. First bra in years that I've been able to find that fits me well.

    Size: 34GColor: Black Verified Purchase
    Like a lot of ladies out there, I just recently went to get sized by a store that carries higher than a DDD. Turns out I'm a 34G, who knew? Anyway - I tried on a lot of bras at the store but wasn't 100% pleased with the shape or the way the cups fit or the wire stabbing me in the armpit. So I read a ton of reviews and decided to take a chance on the Idina Balconnet. And I'm in love! The fit is perfect. The band stays put, flush against my skin, all day long and the cups have a natural shape (not a Madonna-esque cone) and movement to them. I don't look like I'm wearing a cast on my chest.

    I'm petite with narrow shoulders. The straps stay put, don't slide off, and don't dig in. The underwire goes wide toward my armpit, but in a comfortable way and keeps everything in place. None of that annoying muffin-top affect under your arm.

    Plus, the look is just sexy! A warning to those ladies out there who might be more modest in their undergarments, the fabric is thin and sheer. You can see through the lace. I didn't count it as a negative, but some might, so I'm trying to be honest.

    Recently, I have been looking for higher quality bras that give good support. I am short-waisted, so I prefer lift, and I am not small-chested. I started researching UK/European sizing, which is supposed to be more consistent than US sizing (I would usually wear a 36D/DD in American bras, but they rarely fit perfectly or provided the right support). There are a number of sites that will be helpful if you search for things like "a bra that fits" that will instruct you on how to measure correctly, in order to get good suggestions for compatible bras for your breast shape and position. Those sites recommended a 36FF, 38F, and other "sister sizes" for me in UK sizes.

    I like this bra because it fits high on the sides with no wrinkling, rolling or bulging. This also provides good side support. The wires are strong. The cups are stretchy on top to accommodate minor size changes (I am recently recovering from a long-term injury and expect to lose weight, since I am getting back into being active), but the cups themselves are non-stretchy and sewn with multiple panels for shaping. This bra has proved amazing when I've worn it for dressier occasions, when it's okay to show a little cleavage. I'd like to try the plunge version to see if it supports, but to a lesser degree that would be more everyday appropriate.

    I am still working out my size, but this bra seems to work okay. The seams are somewhat visible and the soft cup does show your nipples if you would be cold. It's a pretty thin layered soft cup. The shape is somewhat odd. Not totally rounded, but not really cone shaped. I debated returning it but decide to keep it. Wondering if I should have just returned... The pink color is cute though!

    IMO the cups run a bit smaller than other Panache bras...band size was right on par for me. I have a small frame, so the shoulder straps feel a bit wide for me, but I find that to be a typical issue for me with other brands as well. The seams on the cup do show through lighter-weight clothing - so that is a bummer (not as much as the Andorra style though), but that is to be expected in a non-molded style. Very happy with the quality of Panache, I'm much more comfortable and happier since being professionally fitted and actually knowing my size (and I'm not talking about Victoria's Secret or department store fitting...get a REAL fitting at a lingerie boutique by a trained person).

    I already had this bra in black so I knew it would work in this beautiful creamy nude shade. The bra has just the right amount of stretch to keep everything in its place. Highly recommended for amazing support but it is also very pretty and feminine as well.
