I won't comment on how pretty this bra is. That much is obvious, and has been observed numerous times already. But this bra is also supportive and comfortable (relative to others of equal support). It doesn't strap you down like a mini-corset, but it keeps you up at an attractive height while still allowing freedom of movement and a natural look and feel which is what I like about it. I just received the third andorra lace bra I've purchased in the last couple of years, and there's a reason it's the only bra I've ever purchased more than once. These bras are, for me, in the expensive range so I'm not casual about acquiring them. The lace material is stretchy, but doesn't allow my breasts to spill over on the top where the lace is free of lining as some bras do, creating a quadraboob effect. That's the most common problem I have with bras. The shape is rounded, but not dome-like, having a slight, natural looking fall-off point in profile with none of those little poochy ridges you often get along the horizontal seam of a 3-part cup. I'ts also light and more breathable than other lace, synthetic material bras. You don't feel as encased and restricted in hot weather. The various seams and the sling on the side in combination with the elasticity of the fabric can, however, create some odd bulges in certain places, but it would only be a problem if you were wearing a skin-tight tee shirt or something, and may not even occur for those blessed with more modestly sized breasts.
As far a color, I bought my third Andorra Lace in tangerine, because it was on sale. I think this color is on the way out, but if any of you are considering it, be aware it is not as displayed. It's a dayglow neon orange-pink color. Not my usual thing, but I kind of like it. It'll look cute peeking out from under the shoulder of a black tank. I like that panache makes this bra in fun colors up into the larger sizes. As many of you may have experienced, lots of manufactures cut off the availability of those pretty colors around an H or F, leaving those more endowed with simple (and boring) tan, black, and white. WHY??? No idea. but this baby is offered in new shades every year! BUT not every fun shade goes up into the bigger sizes. Not cool, panache. Big girls wanna have fun too!
All in all, great bra. BUY ONE!
