|Panache Atlantis Solutions wire free bra, £18, Perfectly Petite Lingerie
Seller's blurb: This wire free bra is part of the "enhanced" range from Panache Atlantis Solutions. Using graduated foam cups, it offers subtle shaping and lift with a smooth finish. Available black, nude and white, in cup sizes AA-C, and from 30 for band width.
|Looks||On the peg, this bra looks like a good quality, but very simple, T-shirt bra. The fabric has a satiny sheen and the sweetheart shape of the cups looks cute. On a small-busted woman, the look is more impressive. It gives oomph: not mindblowing cleavage, but a nice roundness that's gratefully received.||4/5|
|Fit||I tested a 32AA cup size and the fit is immaculate: no straps digging in, perfect cup size and comfortable band. Just like a second skin.||5/5|
|Comfort||Comfort can't be faulted with this bra. There are no niggles at all -- in fact, I'm finding it hard to part with it on "wash day".||5/5|
|Uplift||The graduated foam cups provide a "shelf", gently lifting the bust to create a natural, but fuller looking chest.||5/5|
|VERDICT||Overall, a really great, everyday bra, offering a smooth, gently curvy look underneath clothing, as well as excellent comfort.||19/20|
