Didn't fit

Very short roots, projected, slightly narrow, even, close-set breasts....

Having previously tried this bra in 28G, I knew I needed a longer band to comfortably narrow the gore without creating the need for an extender. The wire channel is .75" longer than the wire. So, moving the wire as far as possible to the underarm creates a gore 2.1" tall. Still, the gore at that height is too wide. The gore narrowing alteration remains necessary. From my perspective, this gore is wide and close-set breasts will be forced to alter it.

Close-set users:
When a wire is sitting on my breasts, the cup often feels too wide. However, once the breast is free from from the wire tether, the wire lifts the breast rather than sits on top of it. And, the cup width is no longer too wide. Until I overlapped and narrowed a gore, I did not understand how profoundly the gore width effected fit for my breasts. In fact, I thought my breasts were wide-set when I started my journey 8 months ago.

Because the band is too big, there is little support. But, narrowing the gore will shorten the band by nearly an inch. Then, the band will fit more snuggly. Because the immediate projection is not enough for my breasts, there is empty space in the bottom of the cup. Compared to other molded cups, Panache Cari has good immediate projection: Lulu Tout Madeleine has better immediate projection.

This bra is easy to wear and meets my simple list of requirements for an everyday bra.
