Lingerie | Be my Valentine: Panache Porcelain Grace and Panache Black Ardour 30F review


Valentine's day is aaaaalmost here, 
and for all lingerie lovers that's the perfect excuse to wear, talk and breathe gorgeous bras!
Therefore, I decided to review two bras from Panache Lingerie, that are just perfect for the occasion!

Panache Lingerie is, in my opinion, the most consistent UK lingerie brand;
I own a lot of models from this brand, including some of my most worn bras ever!
The models I'll be reviewing today are fine examples of that:
Porcelain Grace Sweetheart moulded bra from the main line 
and Ardour Sweetheart moulded bra from the Panache Black (former masquerade) line!

I own two Porcelain Grace bras - a indigo blue one, which I've shown previously -
and a scarlet one I'll be showing in this post, both in 30F!
I also own a 30F black Ardour, which is basically an upgrade of the Porcelain Grace!

Both models are awesome t-shirt bras and I wear all the 3 bras A LOT!
Let's discover what makes these bras so special, right after my mother language bit, shall we?


O Dia dos Namorados está quase aí e, independentemente do vosso estado civil,
é praticamente impossível para as amantes de "lingerie" ignorar os belos modelos
que as marcas vão apresentando para nos tentar!

Neste sentido, resolvi fazer uma "review" de dois modelos fantásticos da marca Panache,
que podem encontrar na loja de lingerie e bra Fitting Dama de Copas!
Para o fazer fiz uma mini sessão fotográfica mais intimista e romântica;
não haverá vídeo, pois penso que as fotos falarão por si!

Os soutiens desta publicação são dois modelos "t-shirt bra" com decote em formato de coração,
e que oferecem uma aparência lisa sob as roupas e um formato de peito redondo e favorecedor:
o Porcelain Grace, num vermelho "scarlet" (que também tenho em azul indigo, como mostrei aqui!),
e o Ardour, em preto, ambos no tamanho 30F!
São os soutiens que mais uso de toda a minha (bela) coleccção e funcionam com praticamente todas as roupas:
um EXCELENTE investimento!

Aqui fica, por isso, a sugestão:
se ainda não têm o vosso soutien perfeito para o Dia dos Namorados podem encontrá-lo na Dama de Copas,
que estará aberta amanhã das 11h às 19h!
O modelo Ardour, em particular, foi lançado numa nova cor fabulosa: "burnt red",
além de existir em preto e em bege!

Conseguirão resistir???

Deixo-vos com as fotos detalhadas no resto da publicação!
Desejo-vos um excelente fim-de-semana e um Dia dos Namorados fantástico, se o celebrarem!

Beijinhos!


CONSTRUCTION

The Porcelain Grace and the Ardour are both moulded t-shirt bras!


The straps of the Porcelain Grace are fully adjustable, while the Ardour's are only semi-adjustable!
Their bands fasten with 2 rows of 3 columns of hooks-and-eyes! 


APPEARANCE

Porcelain Grace is a utility t-shirt bra, and, therefore, is very simple!
The only details are the same color dotting and geometrical print in the satin-like fabric!



Ardour, however, is a prettified version of Porcelain Grace,
featuring gorgeous, yet discreet, lace detailing at the inner part of the straps and the whole band,
and a elegant rose bud and small crystal details at the center gore!


The hardware is in contrasting gold.
It's not something overwhelming, but it's a perfect upgrade for a simple t-shirt bra!


FIT

Both bras feel true to size!
Both bands were, when they first arrived,  about 64 cm (25,2 inches) and stretched to 69 cm (27,2 inches).
Since I've worn these bras for a bit now, I'm currently wearing them at the second hook!


The cups are moderately deep 
- Porcelain Grace has 22 cm (8,7 inches) and Ardour has 22,2 cm (8,7 inches) of depth -
and are suitable for FoB and even breast!
They are a bit tall, and might not be suitable for short roots though!
(That's not my case, so these bras work fine in terms of height!)


Unfortunately, they are a bit too wide for my frame: both having 14 cm (5,5 inches) of width!
This accounts for a bit of armpit chaffing, the only fit problem I get with these bras...
Except for this, these are PERFECT moulded t-shirt bras for me!


As you can see, these bras offer an aweeeeeesome round and uplifted shape,
allowing for a glimpse of cleavage, with his heart shaped form, 
putting the breasts up and center!
They are perfectly smooth under tight tops and favor most of the clothes!


CONCLUSIONS

Round, smooth and cleavagey, these bras are nice bets if you want a t-shirt bra,
and need some projection (as most t-shirt bras tend to be too shallow!).
They'll work better if you're even to FoB, 
since these bras offer a rather nice immediate projection!
The only issues for some girls might be the medium width wires...
that might be tricky for those needing narrow wires,
and the somehow high cups...that might not be short roots friendly!

They're both available in sizes 28-38 D-G!

Are you wearing a special Valentine's Day bra tomorrow? Which one?
