  1. Non Wired Sports Bra (7341)

    like

    34FF

    Fits

    Breast shape/characteristics: Mostly even fullness, wide set, wide rib cage, average projection, wide rooted, higher on chest. Broad shouldered and 6'0".

    I noticed there isn't much information on here about the differences between the underwired and nonwired Panache Sport. I've owned both, and so far I highly prefer the nonwired. Here's why:

    The cups are made of slightly stiff foam that better molds to the shape of my breasts and does not dig into my rib cage. The wires in the regular Sport, while supportive, gave me red marks after only an hour. While this may be a tight band issue for the original Sport, the band of the ... nonwired is actually tighter, yet leaves me mark-free.

    The cup shape of the nonwired is better-fitting. The cups have more projection and are not as open at the top. There is more depth at the bottom of the cup, making it more compatible for my slight bottom fullness. The top of the cup is higher on the chest and reduces depth gradually for a more tailored fit. Another aspect of the high rise is the higher side wing coverage, which helps contain more migrated tissue and bring it to the forefront. The regular Sport is too low cut for tall, even breasts and contributes to orange-in-glass effect, as well as not being quite as good at keeping side boob in and forward. I'm wide-rooted, so side wing support is critical for good fit.

    The higher cut of the nonwired also contributes to its superior bounce-control. While the original Sport no doubt is true to its word about eliminating most bounce, I feel like the nonwired is close at eliminating 100% of bounce. In the nonwired, my breasts are totally immobilized. Even doing jump rope, I don't feel them move at ALL. I've just gotten it so I haven't tested it with many forms of movement, but it seems to be able to reduce more bounce than the underwired. However, I do understand that it is possible the foam may lose shape over time, which I will be looking out for. So far I believe the band is firm enough that that problem won't actually become a problem more quickly than any typical underwired bra.

    May or may not be relevant, but I figured I'd add it in: the nonwired is currently cheaper than the wired and you can currently find it on Amazon for under $50, $20 cheaper than the regular underwired.

    I think Panache really did right with this bra. It supports just as well, even better than the underwired without the irritating wires. The shape is so much more compatible for even and full in bottom fullness. In the regular, I'd have to size down to make the bottom of the cup fit my shape better, while adding on the issues of smash and quadboob for my top. This is probably the best part about the nonwired: it's actually true to cupsize. If you're a 34FF, you're probably a 34FF in the nonwired Sport, regardless of FOB/FOT.

    I'm strongly considering buying another one. It's so comfortable, supportive, and better fitting. I recommend anyone who was not impressed with the underwired Sport or who wants something like the underwired with better support, to try the nonwired version.

      very helpful review, i'm excited to get mine!

    • 1

      Wow, this was a super convincing bra.

      I own and have mostly enjoyed the regular Panache Sport underwired bra, but in 30GG it's just a little bit too tight. Unfortunately since you are apparently the only person on this site or Amazon to order one (seriously, it has 3 reviews there, compared to more than 1000 for the underwired version), I had to guess at my size, but I feel like the 30GG is a little big in the cup and small in the band, so hopefully 32GG will be perfect.

      Plus, free and hassle-free returns. (I love Amazon, but usually despair about getting bras from there because my size is NEVER one of the ones on sale. Not so this time, mwahaha.)

      melifish Thank you, glad I could help.

      @rainbrasspetals The bands for sports bras tend to run on the tight side, so you probably made the right call. I'm usually a 32G but have to size up a band for a couple brands, Panache included.

    • 1

      Thanks for this review! I was only able to find the wired one locally and they didn't have my exact size in the store. In the 30 band (which is right for me), I wasn't thrilled with how much I could feel the underwires. I finally gave in and ordered one from Amazon but I did size down in the cup, which now I realize might have been the wrong thing to do. Then again, I have very soft boobs, so maybe not? Anyway, I had a hard time finding any good reviews and I'm much shorter than you are, but I hope I'll find the same 100% bounce reduction in the non-wired. I want to use it for jogging, but all the sites label it as a low-impact bra, so your input is useful.

    • This is exactly the comparison I most wanted to read. I have the wired Panache Sport Bra and the wired Panache Sport Top. I've been admiring the purple non-wired bra. I hope you update later with a detailed comparison once you've had a chance to put the non-wired one through its paces.

      littlechichend , do you have an update for us? I finally ordered the wireless Panache Sport Bra, but the Latte color I wanted was only available in 32FF. My wired Panache Sport Bra size is 30F. Your review said the wireless bra's band runs tight. From Bratabase measurements of 32F, it appears 32FF may work for me.

      I am interested to hear if you continued your wireless vs wired comparison while working out these past many months.

      learningaboutbras I've been wanting to make an update for a while now, but life got crazy busy. I actually just got a wired one a couple days ago that should be shipping soon. I want to post a more informative/helpful update once I can upload more pictures. I can tell you that I'm starting to notice my nonwired is getting a little crinkled where the cup meets the band. It's unfortunately noticeable under clothes. However, tightening the straps and going tighter on the band seems to help.

    30F

    Fits

    This review is for the Cosmic print colorway, ordered from Figleaves (I'm in the US but ordered from the UK site which saved me a good 10 bucks!). Like the black colorway in the same size and model, this one fits my narrow FOB projected breasts well with minor gapping at the top that is totally not an issue for me at all. It wicks sweat, is bounce-free, supportive, yada yada, but let's be honest, I got it for the space print, which is straight. up. GORGEOUS! The print is a pink, coral, red, navy, and white galaxy print (with shades of cranberry and purple) with navy trim ... and hot pink rings, sliders, J-hook, and piping. It was really hard to tell online if the trim was navy or black, and while the navy is super cute, I almost wish it had been black as it would match more of my workout bottoms. Minor complaint. That said, I think it would pair well with either a navy short or a plain black workout legging. I bet it would look fabulous with a dark purple or gray workout short as well. I can't stop staring at the fabric and it made me feel great wearing it. Space boobs...what's not to love??

    30G

    Didn't fit

    Eh.
    I had a bad feeling sizing down in this but I read a bunch of reviews that FOBs should size down, and the way my 30GG - Panache Sport » Sports Bra (5021) fit I felt like that had some merit so... I sent back my 30GG and got a 30G instead.

    Bad idea. If you are extremely FOB, with zero upper fullness, size down. If you are like me, FOB but with tall shallow roots, do not do it. As is obvious from the one angle photo, this bra is cutting into my chest at the collarbone fiercely. On my larger side it's pretty extreme, on ... my smaller side not as much but it's still happening.
    In some photos it doesn't look like it's happening but the thing about (any, not just sports, but sports especially) bras is, you're not stationary when you wear your bra. You move around, you raise your arms up, you pull them back, you lean forward, you lean backwards, et cetera, et cetera.
    So, moving around with this bra cutting in gets pretty damn uncomfortable at some point.

    The band is comfortably snug, and the gore is a soft tack, being pretty tall it gets to be a bit too much cause the cups are having that push up effect so I get some buttcrack cleavage into which the gore cuts in as well.

    Overall, a disaster. Maybe this bra is just not for me?

      The pattern on this one is gorgeous! Sorry it didn't fit well.

    • Yes, absolutely beautiful. I guess my shrinkage just didn't shrink enough heh

    • 1

      Yeah, I can't size down either. It's too tall but as soon as I size down or take the wires out it cuts in something fierce. IMO the wired style holds it open more than the wireless.

    • 1

      Yeah, I'm hoping it will fit at some point.... tho I don't have hope. These tall roots are annoying lol

    • I really want this color too! I really appreciate your review, because I also have tall roots but FOB, and I was thinking I might need a cup size down to provide more stability/ support, but now Im not so sure, because I don't want cutting in. I just feel like the cups are a little empty on top and that will give my boobs more room to bounce in them. Not quite sure how to get it just right. Overall these panache sports bras are tge best I have found, and I really find it amazing what a nice profile they provide under shirts.

    • Yeah unfortunately the cutting in is really uncomfortable and the size is rly restricting too

    • 2

      IMO if you want to protect against bounce, compression sports bras are probably your best bet.

    • I have the same issue ihzve 32H and I think I must go for 32GG I don’t know I confuse what did you do ? Did you keep it

    • I kept it because sending it back again was very expensive and I didn't care to do it. I'm hoping it will fit at some point.
      Honestly for me sizing down didn't work because I have a lot of side issue and really tall roots and the cups on this are just too short for that.
      If your shape is different it might work for you.

    • I post pics to 32H iam waiting to try the GG cups and I made a review

    • You should request fitting help for that one, more people would see it and help you :)

    • From where ? And if you can see and tell me thanks

    • When you go to edit your bra it will give you an option at the bottom to request fitting help.

    28F

    Fits

    For a couple of weeks now, I often don't feel so comfortable in my wired panache sports bras anymore, so I decided to give the unwired one a try and I LOVE it!! It's so comfortable and nicely tight! (I have to wear my wired ones on the tightest hook and they feel less tight than this one on the last hook!) I did wear it for lounging all day today https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
    It gives less support than the wired ones, but it's enough for my recently started cheerleading. I don't think it will be enough for gymnastics and trampoline though ... href="https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" rel="nofollow">https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
    So if you have problems with the immediate deepth of the wired one and are ok with a moderate amount of support, this is your bra!

    Edit: this is the first panache sports bra that I can wear without closing the hook in the back! This is pretty amazing for me, but if you are low set you might have problems with the strap length!

    Edit edit: wore it the second time for cheerleading today and can't wear it without hooking it up anymore :/ I guess it just stretched for a tiny bit and now it's too long https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    Best sports bra I have tried yet! The band is really firm on this one which does give after a wear so if it feels too snug on first wear give it a chance. After all, snug is better when exercising. I totally appreciate the underwires and them being padded enough for moving around without wires digging in. The back also has a hook to allow you to have a racer back if needed. The fabric at the front between the cups is also vented for breathability. I probably could have gone down one more cup size but if you're like me I am always fitting my larger side which means some room on my smaller side. Made by Panache Sport and highly recommended! 👍👊👌

      dfe98we It does. It is a little hard to find as the wires are nicely padded then the middle mesh material covers between and sits up so I had to feel to make sure.

    This is a great option if you're looking to get a Panache Sports bra at a discount. The bra is identical to the standard wired Panache Sports bra, and has tall moulded cups with narrowish wires. I would advise anyone with short roots or a full on bottom shape to size down in the cup. The wires are padded, and overall the bra is very comfortable. The fabric of the top is very swim-like, and in fact I wear it as a swimsuit pretty frequently. The band is fairly true to size, and I was hoping it would be tighter.

      I have this top, too, and I'm glad you reviewed it! I hope Panache brings it back.

    • I have this top in 30E and love it, too. As you say, it gives a put together look.

    • learningaboutbras How is the gore in relation to your center-full, close-set tissue? This is so inexpensive now and I love the concept, but the gore prevents me from purchasing it.

    • 1

      Love4Pollinators the gore is too high and wide for me, as you probably guessed. I can't feel the wires. I have trouble figuring out if the wires are in my IMF, that's how cushioned they are. It's possible the wires wouldn't cause me problems, even if I worked out in this excellent looking tank top. I'm embarrassed to say the only way I've tested this top is (1) looks, which it scores high on, (2) ease of putting on, which it scores low on, and (3) comfort while lounging or exercising. The difficulty putting it on discourages me from even trying to lounge around in it. I got it really cheap at Nordstrom Rack, though, and it looks great. I know Erica at Sophisticated Pair has worn hers a ton as a tankini top.

      Sorry I don't have a more relevant answer to your question!

  7. Non Wired Sports Bra (7341)

    Success! I am shocked that the 30F in this bra actually fits me, but it does. After losing weight, I have been sizing down to 30FF or 28G from most of my 30G bras. However, this bra in 30FF was still too big (see 30FF - Panache Sport » Non Wired Sports Bra (7341) for a full review).

    In fact, the 30FF fit much like my 30G that I also have in this bra in an older colorway. So there is a chance that the floral/gray colorway runs a little big in the cup compared with the black/geo which, in my opinion, runs true to size. ... The standard advice with Panache's *wired* sports bra is to size down in the cup. Previously, I would not have suggested this for the non-wired. Now I would say do not rule this out if you are less full on top.

    When I took the bra out of the box, I was certain it would be too small. I was surprised by, visually, how scaled down the 30F is compared to the 30FF and 30G. The measurements reflect this, saving 1/4 inch on the cup height and gore height measurements. For someone petite, high-set and short-rooted, this 1/4" makes all the difference in the fit of the bra for me. I no longer have a gaping chest panel or bunching material. The straps are also comfortable tightened pretty much all the way. I would still like a tad more length, but it's sufficient, unlike the 30FF where the straps were a little loose.

    The band feels even better (more snug) than the 30FF. I am contained in the cups and the gore separates well. There is at least 1/2 inch reduction in cup width compared with the 30FF. The side/underarm area does not reach into my armpits and I am super excited about that. Once again, the Panache Non-Wired Sport in an accurate size for me has pretty much become my best fitting bra.

    Appearance: I am pleased with the colorway/pattern even though I realize now that the straps will probably be on show a lot and they are a little bit "loud". I would have preferred solid blue straps. The east/west pointiness is also reduced by being in a better size, but it's still there for me. I wish it were just a little more rounded. It's still a fantastic appearance under clothes for a sports bra.

    Quality: My only lingering issue with this bra is that the inside of the cups easily creases towards the bottom after wearing, even just for a minute or two. This is not a projection issue. As I have tried and worn this bra in a few sizes now, I think it is to do with the construction and how the foam cup is anchored to the wireless band.

    Final notes: this bra arrived with the center of one cup a tiny bit dented right at the middle. It wasn't packed harshly and I don't know if it will loosen with time, but it's not noticeable when wearing, anyway. The wrinkles/buckling on the seams that you can see in the photos only appear when the bra is not being worn.

    Pro-tip: Short rooted and/or pendulous and those with flared ribs, do not forget to hike this bra up into your IMF before S&S to make sure it's sitting right.

    34GG

    Didn't fit

    First, a bit about me: I have even fullness, short/narrow roots, very soft tissue, and am fairly high set and close set. I wear between 70J-70K in Ewa Michalak (depending on style), and 32HH in Cleo Marcie. My UK size for brands other than Cleo is probably 32J.

    Knowing that, it probably doesn't make much sense that I am wearing a 34GG in this bra, right? Well, I've found the Panache Sport runs a bit differently than a *regular* bra. I tried it in 34H (last year before the HH & J cups were introduced), but the cups were WAY too tall and the wings were incredibly uncomfortable ... under my arms. I had empty space at the top of the cups and my underarms were being rubbed raw, so that's no good! The cup and wing height in the 34GG are much more comfortable for my somewhat high-set boobs with short roots. And honestly, the cup depth isn't off by that much. Sure, I could use a tiny bit more room, but it's not a deal breaker. I mean, this is a sports bra after all. I don't expect a perfectly flat sitting gore (which would be impossible since it's 2.5 cm wide and I am super close set!) I think if I were to actually try this bra in my actual UK size, which is around 32HH or 32J, it would be much too large. With that being said, if your boobs are anything like mine, I strongly suggest sizing down 1-2 cups if you find your actual UK size doesn't work.

    The store I got this from didn't have any 32H in stock, which is why I went with sister size 34GG. It actually worked out okay because I got this bra more for comfort daily wear rather than exercise. I was able to wear it on the loosest set of hooks for the first couple of weeks, but now I am wearing it on the 2nd and 3rd rows. Of course, I normally wear 32 bands, so this isn't a result of the band being too stretchy or anything. Some days I will still wear it on the loosest set of hooks because I DO NOT like tight bands at all, and some days I don't feel well and need a very loose band. Since I bought this bra pretty cheap, the 34 band is totally fine for now until the 3rd row of hooks is too large; however, if I do buy another one, I think ultimately 32H would be the best size for me (so I need the same band + 2 cups smaller than my UK size in this bra.)

    As I mentioned above, the cup depth is a little too small, but not so much so that I have massive amounts of quadboob or anything. It helps that the band is not super snug on me, which can exaggerate too-small cups sometimes. This bra does not fit anything like a typical balconette, so I believe it's unrealistic to expect the same measurements and fit criteria to apply. Also, as I previously mentioned, the gore is quite wide. However, the wire channels are heavily padded and are OH SO COMFY, so I don't mind at all. The gore doesn't lie flat and floats away from my chest quite a bit, but I still get enough separation to feel comfortable. No major problems with boob sweat here. I'd say this bra, at this size, fits more as a combination compression/encapsulation bra. My boobs aren't completely separate as they would be in an encapsulation bra, but they're not completely smooshed flat as they would be in a compression bra. Sure, my boobs would be completely separated if I got it in my proper size, but then the cups would be obscenely tall and would kill me under the arms. I'll gladly sacrifice a bit of cup depth for the rest of the bra to fit better. **Edit: One thing I forgot to mention -- the wires in the gore only go up about 2/3 of the way; there is no wire at the very top of the "gore" section, so that adds to what I think is an unrealistic expectation to have the gore lie completely flat. I just don't think it's *supposed* to! I've seen several people disregard this bra because the gore doesn't lie flat, but I think their expectations are just not in line for the functionality of this bra.

    The best thing about this bra is the straps. I LOVE the strap placement. It's much closer to my neck rather than towards the edge of my shoulders, so I find the straps very comfortable (plus they are padded). There's a j-hook on the back to make it into a racerback, and I use this feature occasionally when I want more support. I like how the wires/wings are lower under the arms as well, so I find I wear this bra in rotation just to help relieve any discomfort I have been feeling from underwires that are too high under my arms. I love my EMs, but they rub me raw under the arms sometimes!

    The shape the bra gives is quite nice as well. I've added pics of myself wearing just the bra itself and also with a t-shirt. The shape is nicely rounded and uplifted. I find this bra to be a great t-shirt bra, so I tend to wear it when I'm just wearing a t-shirt, if I want to be comfortable on the evenings/weekends, or if I'm doing active work and don't want to wear one of my nicer Ewa Michalak bras. All in all, it's one of my favorite bras of all-time. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

      I'm surprised the band is so loose on you! I tried a wireless 34 band when I was still primarily wearing 32 bands, and it was still SO tight! I wonder if it's different with different colorways? The one I tried was black banded, so maybe the dye make it shrink. Either way, your review is really making me jones to try this one again. I have been favoring comfort these days, and the padded straps look dreamy.

    • ginganinja Well, to be fair, my tight underbust measurement is around 29", so I could probably wear 30 bands if I wanted to. I really, really, REALLY don't like firm/tight bands, which is why I stick to 32. Hopefully that helps explain it! :)

    • ginganinja Actually, I went back and looked at some of my other measurements, and I think you might be right about the black ones being much tighter. I've had a few black ones before in a couple different sizes (I was a Panache Sport addict a year or two ago lol) and the band measurement was in fact smaller than the other colorways. I have (2) in 34GG right now, and they both stretch to about 35". One is the raspberry color seen here, and the other one is a grey one that I dyed pink. I figured that one would shrink since I soaked it in very hot water for about an hour for the dye process, but it didn't seem to affect it much.

    • Agh, I can't edit my comments, so I apologize for the incorrect link (and SO MANY responses! :) The window isn't large enough for me to see which colorway I am selecting, so I'll just leave it alone. It's in the list of bras if you want to see.

    • haha it's ok! I appreciate the information! It makes sense if your underbust is that small, and you're in a 34 band, then it'd be on the looser side. Also makes sense about the black dye. I'm always surprised at how much a difference that one factor makes in fit.

    34GG

    Didn't fit

    The bra I purchased was actually the Grey version of the Panache Sport. However, I dyed it using Jacquard iDye Poly Pink, and the pink dye + original blue/grey color resulted in purple! The pink trim also turned into a more vibrant magenta. Unfortunately, the inside of the cups and the thread are made of a different material and did not change due to the dye, but I am still pleased with the overall result of my dye experiment. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> So yes, you CAN dye the Panache Sport -- just make sure to get dye for polyester fabrics and be aware the thread and the inside of the cups will likely stay the original color. Jacquard iDye Poly can be found on Amazon if it's not available in your local fabric store.

    I love this bra! I've spent years in ill-fitting compression-style bralettes from various places but, after reading numerous rave reviews, I finally picked one of these up, and I'm so glad I did. I purchased it in black from Breakout Bras (via Amazon). The pros first:

    The good:

    -The band is veeeery comfortable. I've read many people saying it runs really tight but, as I measure under 26" comfortably and most 28's feel big on me, this one feels great. It's also a sports bra, so it should be pretty snug and secure, right? There are three hooks, and they're a little padded, so it adds an extra feeling ... of stability and comfort.

    -There is a racerback option. It cuts into my shoulders near my neck a bit, but it does feel like it might be a good option for higher impact activities.

    -It actually looks great under clothing! It could easily be worn under normal shirts and would never be suspected of being a sports bra. It does have a bit of a minimizing effect, but there is also still good definition.


    The bad(ish):

    -The F is a bit small, but I really think the FF would have too much extra room, especially at the top. The wires could be a little higher on the sides as well. The fit is close enough I don't think sizing up is necessary.

    -The center gore is a little wide, but I think I might be more close-set than I realized previously. It requires a little adjustment to get things situated properly. It doesn't really detract from the feel of the fit too much, but would be better if it were more narrow.


    Overall, I'm very happy with this bra, and would definitely consider getting a second one.

    32J

    Didn't fit

    Panache Underwired Sports bra

    It's a very comfortable bra. The padding is rather thick but it adds only 2 cm to my breast perimeter compared to a regular bra. The wires are rather wide and the cups come up rather shallow. The bra is made to push the boobs close to chest and seperate them at the same time. The gore is very wide in this bra, so it does not tack. If I would made the gore tack, then I had some light overspill because the cups are rather shallow and not tall enough for my boobs.

    I think in my size and with my shape the bra is ... not supportive enough for heavy exercise. (I would not run in it, but then I never was into running, I would rather need the bra to do light exercise and for that it will be good.)

    The straps are very thick and comfortable. The whole bra is rather nice feeling, I don't have anything to complain for now. The band runs tight and fits me just a little snug but not too tight (I can fit 2 fingers under the band but not a whole hand) I don't think I would have to size up to a 34 band. I also don't recommend sizing down, If you are between band sizes, always choose the bigger in this bra.

    It's said that the cups come up big in this bra. I agree if you have short boobs that are not very full on top it could be that you need to size down. For me it's not the case and I think that a 32JJ would be the best size for me in this bra. (I usually wear 32J or 32JJ)


    A note on the appearance and shape. The shape from the side is very round and uplifted. From the front the shape is a bit wide. My boobs look 1-2 sizes bigger in this bra. But they look very nice and round. I would feel confident in this bra. Looking good while exercising is motivation too and this bra will look very good.

    I will update here once I decided if I keep the bra and how it held up with some exercise.

      Yes I have pretty much the same experience with this bra. However on me, even though I'm a lot more FoB, sizing down to 30G didn't work either. So 30GG was slightly too large, 30G too small... overall couldn't find a right fit for me.

    • 1

      brasaremean I'm really surprised at that. I got the advice to size down also, but since my boobs are firm they aren't going to move up to fill in the space like everyone thinks. Smaller doesn't work for me either.

    • 1

      Oh mine moved up and are busting out of the bra. I was lazy to make another return so I just sort of let it go.

    • brasaremean does it work for you despite the issue?

    • 2

      I tried my bra on again today, now that my boobs are at their "normal" size again. I noticed that my regular bras gape a bit on top and don't fit as well as on my PMS-boobs.

      So there is a size difference between my PMS boobs and "normal" boobs maybe 1/2 cup size... But in this sports bra… the fit does not change. So either the bra is really 1 full cup size too small or just too shallow for my boobs and pushed them up no matter what. I think this happens with soft boobs.

      I think about keeping it. I want to start exercise ! Just light since I'm a beginner and for that it will do.

    • It does not alisa
      It's actually pretty painful, the cutting in gets worse as I move. So I gave up on it.

    • It looks a good fit other than the cleavage issue.

      But for jogging or running, try @Enell again, but you’ll have to order a custom size. That’s what I wear, a custom size, for jogging — total motion control. It is amazing.

      The woman who customizes for Enell is great. She can make straps longer or shorter, according to your need. She will customize the front and back, like for you maybe a size 1 back and size 5 front. (Mine is 5 back, 7 front.) It is fantastic. Costs about $80 US

    • 1

      alisa So sorry that this did not end up fitting you well. It does look a bit small, I agree that there should be no cleavage and it sucks that they don't have any bigger sizes that you can try.

      Maybe this bra can still be useful for lower impact exercise (if it's still comfortable?) if the returns process/shipping is too much? Or you might be able to sell it locally?

      I think you are right that these cups are shallow and wide... I think people with short roots may be able to size down, but if you're full all over or have tall roots it's not doable like you said. I also felt like the size down I tried pushed my breasts up and out because there wasn't enough "space" in the cups for them...

    • 1

      I have not returned it yet… I would have to hurry up. but I think I make it work. If I do light exercise it will do.

      brasaremean Oh no :/ I hope mine does not get painful once I start to really wear it.

      dfe98we I once had an Enell. It was a faulty size from ebay that was somewhat smaller in band than it would have been for the "bust" size. It was still pretty small and pushed my boobs flat. I don't know if I want to risk ordering for the full price if there are other options. It will cost me over 100$ because custom fees and shipping...

      braluv I keep the bra for now. I'm just starting to get into exercise so it will do and it's better than nothing.

    • brasaremean I just posted this on my sports bra adventure but it also fits here:
      "Guys I'm returning the Panache bra! Yesterday I decided to wear the bra for 30 mins after a shower. Just doing not much sitting round. It was NOT nice. I felt constricted and even a bit… out of breath and it was a relief to remove the bra!!!

      So that means that the bra is too shallow and or just too small? Or not the right bra for me! The padding felt so heavy on my chest and it just wasn't comfortable. "

      Is this how your bra felt too?

      I'm glad I have 30 days return. Bra is going back. I don't know if I am "too weak" to tolerate a compressive sports bra or the fit was bad??? I ask these weird questions but remember I never had a really really good sports bra in my life yet!

    • 1

      Yes very constricting, very difficult to breathe, but to me there was legit pain where the cups were cutting off my breasts because of the chafing, I even got some bruising.

    • brasaremean Omg that sounds horrible! :/ I felt so constricted even when I was just sitting around doing nothing. Did you find another sports bra that works for you?

    • 1

      I sorta get by with a Freya Active Sonic, it is quite tall (not ideal but....) I ordered 30GG and have no issues like the Panache one. I will add it one of these days.

    • Did you try the Kris Line one

    • Sovavosi yeah. Back in the day Panache Sports only went to H. And I remember how excited we were when Freya Active and Elomi Energise expanded to K-cup!
      Bravissimo did good, their Sports bra comes up to L-cup!

      brasaremean No I have not tried any Kris Line bra.

    • 1

      The 28 band still only goes to an H. Hey thanks Panache, I don't need to exercise. Just loose weight off my boobs and put it on my underbust, apparently.

    • 1

      Ugh I hate that. 30J is also missing for some reason, why? And it stops again at H from 36 bands...

    • 2

      Imagine one brand would just design some really amazing sports bra and then offers it in all sizes 26-44 bands A-L cup??? Of course they would stock less of the "more uncommon" sizes but when they are the only ones who offer them, they would still sell.

    • 1

      alisa That would be amazing to have a really expansive and inclusive siza range that was well made! I think (one reason) a lot of uncommon sizes don't end up selling well because lots of folks just down know what their size is or what to look for in a bra.

    • Uncommon sizes could be "on request" if they are not profitable enough... I often noticed that on Bravissimo the sizes above K-cup sold out very quickly. I hardly could ever find a 34L on sale. So I wondered if they just made fewer of those or if the demand is actually there and since many brands don't carry these sizes, they sold very well.

    30GG

    Fits

    I have been wanting to try the Panache Sport Top for a while based on good reviews, and the fact that I like their bra. I got the black colorway which has a bright pattern running down the front sides. I have read some reviews of people who use it for swimming, and it seems like it would work well for this as well as regular exercise.

    This top has the same fit at the sports bra, which I like. It provides a good amount of support, and a nice shape. The fact that there is a top on the bra makes it more challenging ... to hook the bra, there is tight fabric on top and in the way.

    I haven't worn this to the gym yet, but it feels like the same level of support as I get in their regular sports bra. As stated in other Panache Sport reviews, the band is tight and the cup runs big. For reference, I bought this in 30GG, as the 32GG I had bought recently felt big in both the band and the cup. I had to fasten the 32 on the tightest hook. I can hook the 30 on the loosest hook. I haven't done a thorough measurement of myself recently (although I need to). My under breast measurement is a 28.5 tight, and over bust is 38. I would ballpark my UK size at 30HH.

    I haven't worn this to the gym yet because I feel very exposed in it. Apparently I need to 1) get over it (haha) and 2) wear it around the house to try to get used to it. It is not any more low cut than the bra, so really not low cut, nor much cleavage. However, the top is form fitting, and I felt like it made my breasts look very large and on display. I can only imagine how they will look during jumping jacks, even with the purported 80 percent bounce reduction.... I am not sure if this is really portrayed in my pictures, maybe the black makes it look minimizing, but in real life I felt very vavavoom. I normally wear a semi tight shirt on top of my bra, but the fact that this panache sport top is tight across the bra and is also tight under the bra and all the way to the hem highlights the size difference between your overbust and underbust measurements.

    • This looks great on you!

    • Thank you for sharing your review! It looks really nice on you!! I just saw it is on sale on Nordstrom Rack and ordered a few of the sizes to try on. Glad to hear the support level is the same as the bra.

    • Glad this helped braluv . FYI I found someone selling lots of sizes on ebay for $28, that is where I ordered mine, in case anyone else is trying an inexpensive one.

    • Thanks Sonya !

    • That top looks wonderful. How long is it?

    • It really does look spectacular on you. I hope you can eventually feel comfortable enough to wear it at the gym.

    • Thanks Sovavosi and MamaPagan! I will measure it, that is a great idea.

    32GG

    Fits

    I took a risk on a Panache sport that was cheap in an adorable black, neon orange and leopard colorway, and was only available in a 32GG. The quality is nice, and the shape this bra gives is very nice. So many larger cup sports bras give strange shapes, but Panache really does a good job here.

    I normally wear a 28-30 band (preferring somewhere in between these measurements), and am around a HH or J cup (UK). Panache Sport bras are known for being tight in the band and large in the cup. I therefore assumed that this bra would fit closer to ... a 30H. I figured this would be reasonably close to what I need, especially factoring in that this is a sports bra, and some compression is OK with me. All in all I like how the bra looks on me. It is very fun, and fits reasonably well. I have to wear it on the tightest set of hooks, and although it is not riding up, for the sake of exercise support, I would prefer it even a bit tighter, which lets me know that a 30 band in this bra would work fine for me. The bra cups go up to HH in the 30 band, and I think that would be a worthwhile size for me to try.

    I feel that my breasts fit reasonably well in the cups. I am close set, and the gore doesn't tack, but I believe the gore rarely tacks in Panache Sport. More concerning to me is that I dont feel that the outer sides of my breasts, under the armpit, don't feel very contained, it seems like they could slide a tiny bit out. The wires dont extend to the end of the channels on the side, and maybe I would feel a bit more comfortable if they did go up a tiny bit higher. It is weird, I am not used to this sensation, and I am not sure it is really a problem. I guess I will find out as I truly try out wearing and exercising in it.

      I feel like there is only so much I can ask for. Lots of people say this bra hugely reduces or eliminates bounce, but I still have plenty of bounce, I think sports bras can only do so much as breasts get heavier...

    • I hear you there, haha.

    • Good bra sciencing veggiechic ! At least it sort of works out for you and you can loosen the band if you find that you have any swelling with exercise or in general. Maybe for days when you feel bloated?

      AFAIK they don't have a 30HH. I went looking for one on Amazon and the top size I could find was a 30H. That size on me did not fit 2 cup sizes too big. It was the cosmic colorway though, so maybe that one fit differently.

    • Sovavosi , good to know, I have seen 30H as well, but when I looked at the size range listed in bratabase it showed through 30HH. There is only one listed with no review, so it might be a mistake. Mysterious. I actually looked at what size you had to help me make an educated guess on whether this 32GG might fit me before I ordered it.

    • Their sizes are weird, I’m glad this one fits you.

      When I read your reviews and see the HH I was very happy but it’s no this size in their range I am 29 band and I go for 32H I write my review down I think we must contact panache to change the sizes I know it’s firm backs but it’s stretched out

      I wrote Panache about making a 28 band in larger cup sizes and they said there's no market for it. They don't care.

      This is not good they must listen to their customer we must contact inch other and complain that to start their backs smaller and bigger cups I will contact them but they don’t answer me we must do something

    Damn is it tight. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> There seems to be a very large jump in cup size from the 30E to the 28E. The shape is much different as well. It has a very FOB shape with an upward point/slope, and very shallow on the bottom half. I couldn't quite feel the bottom of the 30E, but this sits nearly an inch below my boobs! I feel like I'm escaping out the sides, underwires want to sit on breast tissue on the sides, I get major quad on top, and yet there is empty space at the super high apex! No amount ... of swooping and scooping will get my boobs to take the shape of the cup. It's almost shaped like a 7 and my boobs are an upside down seven, so completely opposite haha.

    As for the band, it is sooooo firm; it barely stretches and I have to have an extra 2 hooks of an extender for it not to kill me currently. Either my 30E REALLY stretched out, or the dark dye makes this bra run small. I do know darker colors run smaller, and I bought the 30E a long time ago so the bra could have changed over time, but this just seems to run almost 2 sizes smaller in the cups, shallower with a pointier cup shape, and really tight in the band.

    On the flip side, IT'S SO PRETTY. Oh my gosh I love the galaxy!! Usually I pass on navy (black or dark purple would have worked with this color scheme as well) but it's so dark and the galaxy is so nice, I just really love the look of this bra. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I'm on the lookout for great leggings that match!

    I don't know if I want to try a 28F, or another 30E in this bra if it really has changed over time... I already took the tags off and wore it as a t-shirt bra for a day (which btw, at least that upward pointed shape looks great under a t-shirt haha) so I guess I'm going to make it work for now. I just work out at home. It won't be an option for a lazy day bra any more, but as it stretches and I wash it, maybe it will soften up.

    Anyone else notice a difference between an older and newer Panache Sports bra? The model number is still the same... Yet to me it's so different. Hmm.

    • That’s different. I keep hearing they run a cup size too big, but the ones I’ve tried have either been the correct size or too small in the cup. I can’t comment on bands as they don’t sell a 28 anywhere close in my cup size and the 30 and 32 bands are too huge.

    • 2

      Sovavosi I followed the "cup size too big" rule on my first one so sized down in cup, but also sized up in band, so technically ended up in a sister size.
      Just looking at the measurement comparisons, and how they feel, there is a HUGE overall volume difference between one cup size. I shouldn't have half the cup empty in one and then exploding out the next!
      Thanks for your input. :)

    This doesn't fit me as it is two band sizes too big. However, it works well enough during seated exercises that it doesn't seem to matter. I use this while rowing and it manages to keep my boobs separated and the sweat from pooling underneath them. The cups are generous and run a little bit large. This bra also chafes my armpit area a lot less than my 30J - Freya Active » Underwired Sports Bra (4002) despite it being meant for a wider rib cage. A great sports bra, it just needs more sizes.

      Panache is far superior to Freya sport IMO. It feels like all these companies are saying unless you are of a certain size range you don’t get to exercise, and that’s wrong.

    • 1

      I think only Elomi and Bravissimo make bras that might fit me. I was going to try them because I'd really like them for more active outside time this summer.

      I think it's probably hard to design bigger bra cup sizes, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't try. Especially since sports bras don't need the same aesthetics that other bras might

    32E

    Didn't fit

    Short roots, projected, center full, close set, slightly narrow, omega shape, short waisted,....

    The band is a bit short. You may want to size up. My under bust is 28" and the 30FF was too tight for breathing https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />

    This size fits much better than I anticipated. The cups fit my short-waisted physique well. In several other sports bras, my one complaint was the cup digging into a tendon in front of my shoulder. 32E is one size smaller than I usually wear and my tendon is happy.

    However, this smaller size creates a different issue. My lymph nodes begin screaming within a few ... minutes from compression. The cup doesn't quite accommodate my full on bottom tissue. So, it spills over into the gore and into my underarm. Because this is wire free, the gore spill is comfortable and acceptable. However, the underarm spill and subsequent compression hurts.

    Because my exercise is often short in duration, the discomfort may be tolerable. Certainly, the bounce is minimal which is my primary concern.

    This bra is the most projected wireless bra I have encountered. However, like many wireless bras and several wired bras, the cup collapses and the band digs in while I sit. For me, this really is an "exercise only" bra. The shape is round and my prominent nipples are shrouded. Although I won't choose to wear this all day, I can create an impressive list of reasons why someone else would want to wear it all day.

    When I first saw this bra, & its promise of 83% less bounce-reduction, was available in my size, I had little faith it would live up to this promise, or be as comfortable as it promises to be either. Wow, was I wrong! I can jump up & down in this thing, & my boobs barely move at all, which is a mean feat given their lack of fullness after a series of weight fluctuations, making them susceptible to escaping the confines of some bras, although definitely not this one. While it's less flattering than my other bras as far as silhouette under clothing goes, ... it's more than acceptable to wear under a t-shirt when going to the grocery store or similar, in my opinion, & it's my everyday bra due to the comfort it offers in addition to its ability to keep the 'girls' under control while running errands, doing the housework, etc.

    Much to my sorrow, my poor, long-suffering bra recently popped an underwire, so I'm now looking for a replacement in my current size, & had forgotten how expensive these bras are when they're not on sale. I got mine at a reduced price because it was a former season's colours, & my old school colours too, so I'm hoping my luck is a bit better this time & I can pick up a bargain again, but in a far nicer colour.

  19. Non Wired Sports Bra (7341)

    32G

    Fits

    32G/GG - 30GG/H - Projected - FOB+CF - Tall+Average Roots - Soft Tissue,
    --------------

    Ordered this one recently as I have been trying bras consistently for quite a while now, on my never ending hunt for the one unicorn bra that will be comfortable to wear for every day, I thought I might try a sportsbra for a change (And hoping a fitting sports bra would motivate me to go for runs again lol)


    First of all, I love the design of this bra. I love the color combo. And I love the build in J-Hooks. I love the look the most when the straps are hooked to a ... Racerback.
    If I wear the racerback bra to often it gets painfull tho as there's too much pressure on the nerves and trapezius muscle that sit right on the neck. Maybe the bands don't adjust long enough too, as you can see I can only wear the racerback when the bands are adjusted to max lenght.

    I like that they offer a unwired version because wires are very often uncomfy for me. The Cups are padded and very spacious unlike a compressing sports bra.
    It's overall pretty supportive and unlike the compressing sportsbra I've been wearing up until now my breasttissue doesn't try to find a way out, everything sits in the cup savely and doesn't slip under the band, quad or squeezes out on the sides.


    The paint on the plastic J-hooks comes off super easy, the first time I closed the hooks a chunk of the orange color came off. Not a big issue but it's a thing I'd try to avoid if I was a bra maker.

    I'm practically living in this sportsbra now until I find (or make) my unicorn bra.

      It's good that it's supportive! I wonder if a 32GG might work even better--the fact you don't get full coverage and that the straps feel "short" despite not being super tall or low-set suggests to me that the cup may be a bit smaller or shallower than ideal? Since they've been making this one for so long it is usually possible to find past season colors at very good prices...

  20. Sports Bra (5021)

    I've tried the wired Panache Sports bra before, but the size was all off... so naturally it left me with a bad impression.
    I will say that in 30GG I don't think it's half bad.

    First and most important -- the gore in this bra tacks on me. It's a soft tack but it's the most tack I've ever gotten in a wired sports bra so I'll take it.
    The wires seem kind of sharp though, I can't quite figure out why. Like on the outside, they actually have sharp edges. Not sure how good or safe this is for the bra. The wire channels are mega cushioned on the inside, ... so if they are sharp there, I can't tell.

    The cups do run a little bit larger. I find I can't quite fill out the apex of the bra, and not because it's small as the cups don't feel compressing or tight or uncomfortable in any way. I'd say half a cup too large. For higher set breasts/short roots it might be a full cup as the cups are extremely tall. For me, I find if I slouch the fit goes all off, I can't at all fill out the top of the cup. So I guess I should just not slouch.
    I don't know if I'd fit into a 30G is the main issue I'm having doubts about returning this, mainly because I think it would be short on the sides. Maybe someday in the future in which case I will just purchase another one cause screw it.
    The bra looks nice under a shirt, no pointy, but rather a nice rounded shape. I quite like it. In 30GG for me I fear it wouldn't be very good for anything other than light running/yoga etc. Just cause it's that tiny pinch too large.
    Another thing, taking measurements for this bra is really difficult so take mine regarding cup depth/width/height with a grain of salt.

    The band I'd say runs very tts. I've seen complaints about the band being tight and maybe it's a colourway thing, but I find this one to be comfortably tight.

    So overall I'm pretty pleased with this bra. The colourway is fantastic, kind of a little more feminine and elegant rather than in your face this-is-a-sports-bra, and I find it not very distracting which makes it great for yoga I think. I can't stand colourful loud bras in yoga classes (unpopular opinion but w/e).

      That pattern looks great! I find their sizes weird too. Mostly just too tall. The unwired are more closed on top, if you feel like that would work better.

      Aaaaah I love this one. And that's great that it works for you :)

    • For now it does! We will see how it fares when I get off the pill (which is in like 7 days so).

      Thanks for the info about it being tall and having room at the apex. I'm certain the same thing would happen to me. I've wondered about this bra, but I think I'll stick with my compression bras...

      Wilderness1 excuse the crappy drawing but this is how I *feel* my breast sits in the cup... I can't be 100% sure because I can't actually see it but yeah. The blue line is my boob. It sort of acts like a shelf from the bottom and then my soft tissue just sort of sits in it...does that make sense? https://i.imgur.com/NBQ2G8N.jpg
      Seeing as we're pretty similar in shape I'd say it's a safe bet you'd have the same thing happen.

      I'll also say I just can't seem to pull the wires into my imf although I know they can sit there but the bra is pretty bulky down there and I can't seem to make it right.

      I love this sports bra. I think I have a similar shape to you both, brasaremean and Wilderness. I size down a cup to a 28FF and it works great for me. It fits nice and snug and lifts/compresses my breasts somewhat so that they fill that little space (like in your drawing) that would be there in a G cup. It feels very secure.

    • Hm Sonya I do wonder then if I should just send this one back and exchange it for a 30G... but I'm so scared it will be small :(

    • 1

      brasaremean Thanks for the drawing... that's pretty much what I thought from your review. I have read (in other reviews of this bra), that you do need to size down in this one.

    • I might just get a different one in 30G from poinsettiastyle (cheaper, anyway). Just for comparison. Because when I first put this one on it genuinely seemed like it would not fit on the sides...

      brasaremean I took apart one of these and the wire channels are actually filled with clear gel. Possibly why it feels weird on the bottom. I don't think that I can actually get mine shoved all the way up in my IMF either.

      It is a very beautiful pattern!
