Used to fit
Love this bra! Can't believe how high it gets my boobs! Magic! Also how cute it is!
Straps are borderline too short. I have to size up in the band in Cleo to get a comfortable fit. Of course I wish it had 3 columns of hooks, but it's firm enough even in a 38 to stay in place.
My go-to for looks -- not comfort.
Update a year+ later, I still love it, just now graduated to the 2nd set of hooks even though lots of wear.
Only issue with Cleo is the top lace panel is not sewn to the same tightness as the bottom of the cup, meaning a seam line is readily apparent, total bummer.
2-year update: still own, wear and love this bra. Lengthened the straps. Band still fits great because of weight gain. Am in between cups in cleo so these are loose on top by the end of the day, even though I took in the top lace on my smaller side.
Have begun to crack the code on why panache fits and feels the way it does: their wires are of a guage like 8x heavier than any other brand's. No wonder they are so uncomfortable! and support so well!
3 year update: am finally retiring this bra, have repurchased in the same size and am using this one as a sewing pattern. Just wanted to note that in 3 years of heavy wear I went from an extender to just the last set of hooks, never stretched more than that (caveat i did gain some weight in that time period, my UB went up .5"). So: wow on that sturdy elastic, Cleo, and here's to the power of washing your bra every few wears and gently.
