    Didn't fit

    As a preface, when I first tried the Asher, I tried a 28FF which was too small in the band since I've recently become a 30 band. The 28FF was REALLY small so I saw 30GG on sale and thought "It's just 2 cup sizes larger than 30FF which i normally wear" and while technically correct, this bra is much too big in the cups https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />

    QUALITY: As always from Panache, the quality is really good. None of the seams feel like they're going to unravel, the fabric is really sturdy, the overall structure is really solid.

    FIT: The band is really ... comfortable! I do feel like it could slide down because the cups don't fit properly and so I imagine the tension in the band isn't 100% correct for a correct fit, but I'm not keeping it so I'm not concerned. The cups are too big, my boobs fall to the bottom and fill it out nicely, but leave room for another small boob on top in the empty fabric. The cups are also comfortable, despite being much too large.
    The wires feel stiff when I hold and feel the bra, and when I compare it to my Cleo Marcie in 30FF, the wires feel a lot stiffer than the Marcie.

    DESIGN: I'm not gonna lie, this bra is quite pretty. The blue is really nice with the geometric patterns in the top lace panel. There's lace loops decoration on the edges of the straps and lower edge of the band, much like other Cleo bras, but these loops are much smaller than usual. It looks nice on the straps but might be annoying for the skin on the lower edge of the band. Next to the wire channels on the outside of the bra there's a stripe of fabric just a millimeter wide, but it's shiny and adds just a touch of detail that I really appreciate. It's subtle and I don't know how visible it is when you're wearing the bra but it looks great when it's laying next to me on my desk. The only thing I don't really like is the bow. It's wide and square and makes the bra feel wide and square. I personally prefer the small lacy bows that usually come on Cleo bras, if I end up getting this bra in my size I definitely will be replacing it.

    There's an extra layer of fuzzy fabric sewn onto half of the strap lengthwise, from the middle and down to where it meets the cup. It's there for comfort and I like that attention to detail. It wouldn't make the bra more comfortable to me though as I have the straps on max length, but I'd imagine it's nice for someone with a short torso.

    TLDR, Asher isn't as bad as I thought! But I have yet to try it in my actual size.

      30GG is technically 3 cups bigger than 28FF, because cup goes up with band size too. That's why, for example, if band is too tight in 28FF but cup is alright, you should try 30F rather than 30FF :) and so on.

      So, in this case probably your usual size 30FF would be a good fit. But I am not a professional, just figuring things out there ;) The bra indeed is beautiful, I love softies :D

      Cleo Minnie is my best fitting Cleo in a 28F. Since it is discontinued I contacted Panache and asked what a good replacement would be. They told me the Asher. For me the Asher is not a good replacement. Unstretched the band is the same length as my stretched out Minnie. Even though the Minnie still fits me in the 1st hooks the Asher is too loose in the 1st hooks and too tight in the middle hooks. Either way I hook it the band slides down and presses on my rib cage. Not sure if I need a smaller cup or it's just wrong for me. The Asher reminds me too much of Marcie which it replaced. I didn't do well in Marcie and am having the same experience with Asher.

      pierniczki you are correct! it is 3 cup sizes bigger than 28FF. But I coulnd't try this in 28G because the band was too tight. So I tried a 30 band which is comfortable, but the cups were too big :) it is a pretty bra!

      meggiecat yeah, Asher is its own thing. It can't really be compared to the Marcie in my opinion, it's somehow still very different.
