The long awaited Andorra review!
While at Intimacy in Chicago, I purchased the Panache Andorra full cup bra in both black ($65) and the stunning lagoon ($62) color.
The Andorra is available in bands 28-40, cups D-J.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
Anyhoo… I bought both in a 40J…..There are many things I love about this bra, but lets have a look first.
Unfortunately, my camera does not capture the true Lagoon color, but the stock photo from Panache surely does. The 4th picture is to show you the true gorgeousness of the lace upper cup.
FEATURES: Fully adjustable straps, stretch lace upper cup, lined lower cup with lace on the outside. Banded bra, with lace detail on band and on lower half of straps. Pretty bow detail at center gore. Firm, comfortable band.
FIT: The Andorra is a great fit! What is really great about this bra is the stretch lace upper cup! I’ve mentioned more than once that my right breast is a smidge bigger than my left….thankfully, with the stretch lace, this isn’t noticeable at all. I am able to fit both cups without any gaping, spillage, or double boobing. I think that this is a great style for women with small differences in breast size, and it also accommodates different shapes nicely too. The Andorra comes up shorter on the sides, and I think I would have liked just a little more coverage, BUT it does not poke me under my arms very much. The straps are fairly wide set (which is somewhat troublesome at times), but they are supportive and do their job nicely. Between the black and the lagoon, the fit is spot on (although I might say that the black is a little bit more snug in all areas in comparison).
SUPPORT and SHAPE: The support of the Andorra is amazing for my heavy breasts! It is a wonderful balconette shape, and it has side slings to project breast tissue forward. I love the rounded shape that the Andorra gives me. Seriously, the lift and support of this bra cannot be beat. The band is firm and comfortable which I have heard is pretty standard for Panache bras.
OTHER THOUGHTS: I really, really love this bra. It is definitely my favorite bra that I have purchased thus far. It is sexy, feminine, and made sooo very well. I feel very supported and stylish in the Andorra in either color (and I am desperately pining for the same in the gorgeous purple that is on eBay!). The black took a couple wears to break in as it was definitely more snug than the lagoon….but the lagoon is super comfortable without having to be broken in – I am wearing it right now!
I would definitely recommend the Andorra to anyone that wants a beautiful, well supporting bra!
And, it disappears quite well under clothing!
