Why I recommend this bra
After years of buying uncomfortable bras at department stores (the few times I found any on my size), and using the wrong size, I found a vocation as a professional fitter and lingerie consultant. Now I help women find the perfect bras for them for a living and I´ve learned very much about this matters over the years. I recommend the Lexi Balconette T-Shirt bra to every women asking for a seamless bra with a minimalist and sexy designs.
When a bra catches to my attention because of the pretty design, color and features, the first thing I search for is the size chart. If the bra is available in A, B and C cup and up to my size (DDD), its probably not a good design for busty women. Manufacturers usually take a “standard” B or C and then size up/down from there. This is a mistake because larger breasts need different designs to really get all the support they need. The Lexi Balconette is available from D to H cup, which means that it´s especially designed for curvy women.
Just like you guys, I always read the reviews before buying to see how other women are doing with the bra that I want. This particular model has great reviews on different online stores, and if the price is the only thing making you think twice before getting it, let me tell you that the high quality of this product make it a great investment because it´s very durable.
All about the bra
This bra combines support, comfort and prettiness flawlessly. It´s even more versatile than other T-Shirt bras that I´ve used in the past. This sexy balconette bra has light padding for coverage, a smooth look under clothing, and satin binding along top cup edge. The center panel is wide, arched and has a bow and supportive mesh lining. Available in Black and Latte, this bra will look amazing with any piece of clothes you decide to wear over it.
One thing I like about this bra is the fact that I can wear it all day without dying to take it off. Thanks to its amazing fit, your boobs will stay in place and your straps won´t fall down your shoulders even after several hours wearing it. The straps are fully adjustable, even in the larger cup sizes.
I love wearing this bra under thin tee shirts and business clothes. This is my favorite go-to bra, and I can say that it´s one the bras that I´ve worn the most. And I must say that it´s extremely well made because it maintains it shape like if it was new even after several months of usage. You can feel the high quality of the fabrics from the very first moment you try it on. This is another Panache masterpiece and I could talk about how great it is all day long. This is another must-have if you are looking for support, comfort and a beautiful design.
How does the bra fit?
Before talking about how the Lexi Balconette T-Shirt bra fits, I would like to highlight the importance of doing your research before buying any bra online. I´ve read nothing but great things about this bra, but the only recurrent negative comment is to point out the fact that it runs a little bit small in both cup and band sizes. Many women needed to order another bra on a bigger size to get a perfect fit, but once they did, the comments were always positive (4 and 5 stars reviews).
I’m a DDD (E) right at the edge of my cup size, so I ordered an F and it fitted me perfectly. I love how it adjust to my boobs keeping them up and forward all day. But to get this right fit, you need to know your exact size and look around to see how other ladies with your size are doing with it. Overall, this is a bra that I strongly recommend for larger chests.
Is the bra comfortable?
This is without a doubt one of the most comfortable bras that I posses in my inventory. I´m very picky about this feature because I simply can´t feel beautiful or sexy if I´m not comfortable with the piece of lingerie that I’m wearing. I can tell you that my self-confidence grows from the very first moment I put it on and I’m sure you guys will experience the same thing. Its extra smooth finish feels great and even after a long day it holds up its form and remains comfortable.
I’ve recommended this bra to many of my clients and they´ve all thanked me because this model right here is perfect for curvy women with big breasts. If you haven´t found a really good bra for your big girls yet I suggest you try the Lexi Balconette T-Shirt bra. I´m sure you guys will love it!
How does the bra look?
I´ve tried this bra with many different outfits and it has never let me down. It looks very good under all my t-shirts, blouses, sweaters and even thin dresses. It makes my body look really good because it brings my boobs up and forward keeping their natural shape instead of squishing them to my chest.
The design is minimalist and beautiful. They kept it simple and effective and I love that. It´s not dull like other supportive bras that I used to buy before I learned about online shopping. Quite the opposite actually, I always have fun trying new outfits with it because I know it will look great.
Where to wear this bra
I´ve always used t-shirt and balconette bras more than any other type of bra because of their versatility. I own quite a few of this but I need to highlight this model because I fell in love with it since I first saw it scrolling down Bare Necessities webpage. Like most of my bras, I gave it a try during a whole day at work and from the very first day it felt amazing. I´ve used it ever since in different occasions and different types of events under all kind of outfits and what I love the most are all the compliments about my figure that I´ve received wearing this bra.
Like I use it regularly, I take good care of it hand-washing it and never putting it in the dryer machine. This way you can be sure that it will last longer.
My bra review
Cleo by Panache offers amazing products I recommend each and every one of them. This is a wonderful brand to try new things and learn about your body´s shapes. This t-shirt bra should be in every women´s wardrobe because it gathers all the features that you´ve been searching for your whole life. Just make sure you order one in your size (remember what I told you about the cups running a little bit small!). Besides that, everything else is just wonderful!
