This is a seriously beautiful bra. Throw in a high level of comfort and it may now be my favorite. Nordstrom.com marked it down to $50.98 USD and I jumped right on it. They have a few sizes left, and the matching panty is still available in small and medium for $25.40.
The color Ink is as dark a blue as it can be without being quite black. I'd call it a blue-black. The hardware and charm are a brassy gold tone, so it's like a navy blazer with brass buttons but ultra feminine without being fussy. This bra is very ...well made. If I'd paid $85 for it I'd think it was worth it, and at $51 it's a steal. I love how the stretch lace is matched symmetrically and the larger roses in the lace are placed on the 4-part cups where they enhance the whole design. All the fabrics are ultra soft. The wires are on the narrower side for Panache but I have no problem scooping all my tissue into the cups and it stays there. Wires are typically Panache firm, not harsh imo but then I'm not bothered by most Panache wires (Envy did poke me a bit).
The only downside to this bra is that it's so soft it loses a bit of support. The narrow straps are very stretchy; combined with the tall sides it means I can't shorten them more to get the girls up higher because then the sides of the cup will cut into my arms. I am happy with my shape wearing this though and as I said it is super-comfortable. The cups have plenty of room for immediate and center projection and the stretch lace is quite accommodating. The band is soft stretch satin with wider elastic at the top and bottom and in fact is quite stretchy. I often need an extender when I wear 34 bands but this is perfect without one.
I see that Quinn will be available in a chocolate colorway this fall. I hope Panache will continue this in more colors. I could really use one in ivory. Are you listening Panache? Read more 271 more words
My only wish is that this bra was cheaper (I paid $82.00 USD for it) and that it had come out sooner! It's really comfortable - the material is soft, silky, and very forgiving, from the band that doesn't cut into my squish to the stretch lace top of the cups that don't cut into my tissue. Love this bra - I wouldn't have paid $82.00 for it if I didn't. It's CUTE, too! The cut-out is super sexy.
