    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??

      Thanks, it definitely is!! The colorway is so new, I couldn't find reviews of it anywhere, so I thought I'd share my own!

    • That is beautiful, I might just have to get one...

    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.

    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! 👍👊👌

      I was just looking at another color myself! I will get another!

    • You can see the underwire in side view, roxannelovesbras , but not in the center. So does the center tack properly?

    • 2

      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.

    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.

    • *dyed purple with pink dye is what I meant to say: 34GG - Panache Sport » Sports Bra (5021)

    • 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.

  6. 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

      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!

      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.

      So many sports bras stop at H-cup :/

    • 1

      Sports bra manufacturers are so lazy 😑

    • 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.

      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...

      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.

    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'm glad this one more or less works for you. crossing my fingers that it holds up well.

    • It looks good. I hope it fares well and withstands a workout. :-)

    • 3

      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?

    • 1

      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.

    • 1

      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

    • 1

      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.

    • 2

      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

    • Hello probably I made wrong I must go down another’s size I write my review in 32GG what do you think?

  9. 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. :)

    32HH

    Didn't fit

    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.

    This bra is not owned any more

      Telllllll me about it. They just released a bunch of new sizes for their Sculptresse line, but the largest cup/band combo is 40GG, which is 4 cup sizes too small for me :(

    • 3

      That's awful! Why can't Panache get their stuff together and make more sizes! 😫

    • 3

      So true! I love my 30H but have to wear it on the last hook from the start... Indeed, Panache, why? People with 28 backs can't have large breasts? :-(

    • 1

      I'm glad this one works okay for you but it sounds like it's far from perfect. :( The color and design is fun. ;)

    • 3

      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
