I'll have to review this again in a few months for sure, but as of right now, with a few modifications I have never had a bra look like this on my body before.

The pictures I took made me REALLY see my own shape, what I'm supposed to look like in a bra and what support is supposed to feel like. I learned that I don't like too tall a gore, which led to me learning how to modify gores and wires and I bought some meshy athletic fabric that's coming for me to pad a little bit behind the gore and behind another itchy spot. I learned that I had quilting soap in the back of my closet and that you can use that for bras!

The uncomfortable parts: I've worn sports bras for... pretty much my entire bra life. So having a real band is taking some getting used to. The gore itches like mercy and I'm not quite sure why, I'm hoping it was excess soap but I'm going to probably sew a tiny thing on the inside to protect my skin from it, and I'm going to bend the wires a bit so it isn't touching as hard. The part where the bra cup turns into the strap has some lace that itches as well so if you have super sensitive skin you might have to do a little modification of this bra.

I don't know what it'll be like in six months, but as of 3/17/2017, Panache is getting some money from me.

  • So beautiful on you! Hope the mesh helps; itchy is not an adjective I want associated with my bra ;-)

    Thank you so much! I'm kind of body-negative toward myself, and seriously, posting this bra to this site and to the ABraThatFits Reddit was an amazing experience.

  • <3 <3 Let the love flow :-) :-)

    Looks beautiful! Congratulations on finding a bra that makes you feel good about yourself! It's amazing how a properly fitting bra can lift your spirits and give you a nice confidence boost! As time goes on, you may start to get more used to lace and mesh and snug bands. Good luck with your future purchases!

  • Congrats on finding a bra that brings out your beauty! I too have issues with scratchy bits, but can usually address them in one or more of the following ways:
    --When "clear" thread is cut too long, it pokes. Carefully trimming back those unruly threads works wonders.
    --Bra tags can be tacked down to not poke and rub with a well placed stitch or two.
    --Rough new fabrics can be given a helping hand at break in with a gentle application of a fine grit sandpaper or emery board. This should be VERY done judiciously so as not to ruin your garments.
    --Pharmacies sell something called "moleskin" in the foot care section that is soft/plush and can be applied over areas like gores that may be too stiff/uncomfortable in a new bra. There is usually an adhesive backing but if you aren't handy with sewing, this can be a real boon.
    --I have gone as low tech as overlaying a problematic part of a new bra with a piece of whatever soft fabric of have laying around, then settling myself into it. This won't work as well when it warms up but I'll worry about that when winter ends. :)
    Enjoy you bra journey!!

Looks GREAT, just a little tight from being new. Otherwise I am so happy with this bra. I haven't worn it for a full day yet, but I'm hopeful.
