- Center gore comfort:
- Underwires dig into sternum, because they are too high
- Strap separation:
- Are too far apart
- Band fit:
- The back of the bra is not at the same level as the front (rides up)
- Cup's width:
- There is empty fabric on the sides (Cup too wide)

The Envy is a stylish unlined bra with plenty of projection at the base and center. I wanted to love this bra, particularly since it has an arched band at the gore (non-continuous band), which is great for my stomach pain problem (most full bands can make me feel sick at certain times of the day from even light pressure under the gore). The stretch lace is extremely soft and comfortable, while the lower part of the cup lifts and holds strong with double layered mesh. Still, there are a few glaring reasons why this bra isn't for me, at least not in this size:
It's not a bullet bra, but for me it comes close! My tall roots combined with a lack of upper fullness/firmness make the apex of the bra point out in a shape I can't deal with. I have this problem in a lot of brands, but both the Envy and the Jasmine have had too much point to them for my aesthetic preference.
I get 5.5" inches for cup width, but the wires do go all the way back, practically behind my armpits, so it feels even wider. I know my ribcage isn't the design standard, but this is weird!
3) Center gore
The gore on the Envy, as with many other Panache bras, hits me right in the sternum. Ouch!
The band was surprisingly a little loose for a Panache 32, so I do plan on trying this bra again in a 30F just for "science". A cup size down may make the pointy issue a little less noticeable.
