After using the bra intervention method I went to the professional at Bravissimo who fitted me out with this Rococo Charm Bra by Bravissimo and this Patsy Floral Half Cup Bra by Freya.
They are both lovely and fit nicely but they are no good for tight vests or tshirts as the seams/embroidery show through. Is there such a thing as a nude, seam free balconette bra for a 32 F? I've seen the Cleo Juna mentioned but it looks like it has seams too. Any ideas? It needs to be balconette as there is not much filling up top.

I was coming on to recommend the Cleo Juna but it does have seams. I find it fine under a t shirt but I do have to size up in the cup.

Good to hear that you're not seeing the seams and interesting about sizing up. I hadn't heard that before.

I wear the Cleo Juna under t-shirts and it's fine. Haven't needed to size up though.

There is a freya deco half cup now - not the normal one.

Try panache. I am a 32E and wear their "Porcelaine" style. It's full-ish, might work for you, but I am sure they do a proper balconnette style too.

Curvy kate do the starlet and the smoothie, which might work.

Curvy Kate Daily Boost is another good option.

I'm going to try the Freya Deco, Curvy Kate Starlet and the Panache Porcelain. They all look minimal and what I've been searching for. Thank you.

The Freya Deco strapless is more balconette style than the other Freyas but has a wider back strap with that sticky silicone on it. The Honey is good but not for light/white t-shirts as i don't think they have a nude version this year.

I have found the Curvy Kate Starlet not great under tight shirts and it runs large in the cup, hope you haven't already ordered confused.

No, I won't order until tomorrow when I've had a good look at all the suggestions. What is wrong with the look of the Starlet sinning?

I have the panache superbra in the black and the white, it has seams, but they don't seem to show and it is very comfy and supportive.

Sadly nearly all the sizes are out of stock here, but you might get lucky elsewhere-ebay is sometimes good.

You can visibly see the bows (I did take them off though) and the trim on the top of the cup and the straps seem to be very bulky and lumpy. You can also see the criss-crossing under thinner t-shirts but if i'm wearing such a thin shirt I tend to be layering it under a jumper or something. I find the best for me is the Fantasie Ava smile.

Panache Idina - the lace doesn't show as it's flat material.

The Fantasie smoothing balconette one is FAB! Get the non-moulded cup one though! Totally invisible and fab uplifted shape. I love it so much I wear the 30E even though I'm really a 28 back blush
