Panache Sport (non wired and wired) are my favorite bras so far. They are so comfortable and fit so nicely. I pretty much wear them as a T-shirt bra. They work pretty well as sports bras, too. There's a clip on the straps for extra support when needed.
My only complaint is that they're too high up to wear v-neck and other lower-cut clothes.

These are fantastic!! I used to be the one wearing a sports bra over a regular bra with a stretchy bandeau over top just to be able to run. This bra is great! Not much bounce and I don't feel like my chest is squished nor that they're going to slip out the top or under the band.

Short, projected, close set, center full, omega shaped, slightly narrow, even breasts....
This is my second sports bra. The first was a 30G Shock Absorber 4490. I've been happy with my Shock Absorber, but I needed one more sports bra to lessen my laundry frequency. Thanks to letstalkaboutbras I was compelled to try Panache Sport's 7341.
The materials are supportive. The construction appears to be good quality. The seams do not chafe or bind. The j-hook is easy to fasten while wearing. The staps are thoughtfully padded over the shoulders. And, the padding is sufficient to shroud prominent nipples. Yes!
I like it, but ... this is a "lot of bra." It is 100 degrees F today. I perspire just thinking about wearing this. I would choose the Shock Absorber everytime during summer over this Panache because of the padding. For winter, this Panache will be great. But, in summer,....phew...I'm perspiring.
The design better accommodates taller roots than Shock Absorber 4490. And, because of the space for taller roots, my narrower breast bounces more in Panache 7341 than S.A. 4490. But, the bounce does not hurt and I can freely exercise. My wider breast is perfectly encapsulated and I risk discomfort if I size down. So, I'll tolerate a bit of bouce and continue jumping around.
For the price I paid, I'm content. However, I would be unhappy had I paid full retail considering the excellent results I've had with a less expensive S.A. 4490.
Overall, this is a comfortable sports bra and my breasts celebrate the lack of wire

Last year, I found this bra in 30G to be an excellent fit, much better than the Panache Sport Sports Bra (5021)](model:11622) . See 30G - Panache Sport » Non Wired Sports Bra (7341) for a comparison review of the wired/wireless versions.
At that time, I tried a 30FF and found it to be too small (see 30FF - Panache Sport » Non Wired Sports Bra (7341)). I was spilling over the gore. The 30G was a better fit all over, although the cups were wide, and it had enough coverage for my upper fullness without conflicting with my short roots. It ... also gave me a really nice, rounded shape under clothes.
I have since lost weight and have been sizing down in all my bras from 30G to 30FF. I ordered this bra assuming it would fit in line with my new size. However, I have also had some shape changes and loss in upper fullness. This time, the 30FF still seems too big. The gore tacks fine and the cups feel comfortable at the bottom, but there is a load of empty space at the top. I can pinch a handful of material beneath the straps and across the chest. It also gives an unpleasant east/west pointy appearance.
I have tried it on a couple times and hope that these issues will be resolved by going down one more cup size and not that this bra is now a shape mismatch for me. I need a sports bra right away and would hate to have to start from scratch.
I still have a new 30G version in black geoprint that fits me very similarly to this 30FF in floral/gray, with just a tad more room in the cup. I wonder if the new colorways run larger in the cup? Even though my underbust size has decreased since last year (28.5 snug from about 29.5), the 30" band is still comfortable and supportive.
A lingering issue that repeats from the 30G is that the straps don't adjust short enough. The j-hook helps with that, but just another 1/4" of space would have been nice.
As for the appearance and quality of this bra, I really wanted the coral/gray colorway, but couldn't find a good price in my size. So I kind of settled for the floral/gray one (neither of these are "gray", but more slate blue, by the way), and when it arrived I was very happy with the it. It's a little over the top girly, but it's pretty and it's going to be under my workout clothes anyway, in which I will feel distinctly un-pretty, so why not? Also there were no pics on Bratabase of this colorway, so I've added some.
Notes on quality: In the photos, you may notice some buckling along the front seams of the bra material. I think they are all like this. Also sometimes it feels like the material comes away from the foam towards the band/bottom of the cup, like the outer material shifts, but I only notice it when I take it off and feel it, not when wearing. Again I have found that the interior foam of the cups seems to crease very easily inside, even when it fits well. That's annoying for me because I like my bras to stay in great shape for a long time. It doesn't appear to affect fit or comfort.

I normally wear a 30G in most bras. When I was shopping for a Panache Sports bra, I was recommended 30FF because the cups run roomy. In my experience, this is not the case for the 30FF - Panache Sport » Non Wired Sports Bra (7341) .
I had a lot of fit issues with this bra that people had difficulty helping me to diagnose. The first issue was that the gore was not separating me well and my larger side was especially overflowing (or pushing behind the gore, which is effectively just a piece of soft foam in this bra). Secondly, there was considerable wrinkling ... at the bottom of the cups where I couldn't fill it out and the band felt a little too snug. When I took the bra off, the wrinkles were still showing in the foam. I called the retailer I bought it from and they suggested that going up a cup and/or band would not help.
I could not figure out if it was a shape mismatch or just too small. I went up a cup to my normal size (30G) and that was a better fit.
I have since determined that the cup wrinkling wasn't so much a shape issue as the fact that I'm short/high-set and had to pull the bra up into my IMF better. Since the band is tighter than usual for a 30, it stays up well once it's in place. The rest was the too-small cup.
I'll leave a full review on the 30G model.
