Didn't fit

If you are projected and close set with narrow and tall roots, you should probably avoid this bikini top. It would be far more suited to an omega shape than my teardrop, and also a much better fit for someone with firmer tissue (I don't have that at all). The band is also really tight, almost as tight as the 28s I've tried in Panache's Cleo line. Because of the tight band, I can't make perfect comments on fit. The wires are wider than I need, but the band pulled them even farther out, so I was definitely getting a weird fit to start with. As a 30F goes, the cup was somewhat shallow on bottom and closed on top. I would almost dare to call this a wider, shallower bra except that the middle part of the cup had projection to it. Just not the center near the gore; that was pretty shallow, but again my assessment there is affected by the tightness of the band. The straps also sat somewhat wide for my tiny shoulders, but that's a normal problem for me.

Note: this is a typical swim snap setup, no hooks and eyes for adjustment.

I have to say, the colorway is still gorgeous, which is why I had to try this even though I was pretty sure it wouldn't work out. Oh well. Goodbye, Panache, we are just not meant for each other.

Emerald colorway
