    This is the second Panache sports bra that I own and the third one I have tried. I originally tried the 32DD and was a bit squished. The next one was the 32F which was fine but a little bit too wide and tall. This one is in between.

    The cups do fit a bit better than the 32F and compress me a little more. The 32F is a very round shape, but due to the taller cups, I do have a little bit of empty space in the cups at the top as I’m soft tissue and functionally fob. The 30F is better at containing me evenly ... in this respect. That said, the cup height difference is actually pretty minimal. With so little difference I don’t think it made a huge difference in sizing down.

    The band on this one is definitely tighter than the 32F which is to be expected from a band size down. I can do it up but it’s a bit more challenging. If I was using this bra for running or jumping and other high impact sports, I would say that the 30 band of this one (with this level of wear) is perfect but, I am doing none of those things. I’m wearing it for Pilates which is a lot more gentle and flowy with the majority of my lessons on my back and I think it’s going to be too tight for me this way.

    There is a small snag in one cup which I was aware of when I bought it (it was already discounted) although I accidentally added a small slit with the scissors as I was opening the package. The slit is pretty small but it is in the mesh portion so I hope it won’t get bigger with wear.

    Ultimately I think a 32E would fit me better but I’m not sure if it’s the right sports bra for me. I like the rounded and separated profile vs the uniboob look but I am not a fan of the cup height. That said, as long as it is under a top, it probably won’t be a problem. The 32F looks freaking amazing underneath my thermal zip top and my snug shirts even though it is a little bit of overkill for a bra for my needs. I have not tried the 30F underneath a top yet, so I might keep it and find an extender or I might just relist it and keep the 32F which I have grown fonder of since I got it.

    • It's funny because from the sides, it looks like a perfect fit, but from the front, I can see that it's a bit tall on you. I just acquired one of these too, so hopefully I can compare it tomorrow. I haven't even tried it on, as I have a million things going on right now and haven't had time. Thanks for all your reviews of different sizes/fits.

      Yeah, and I don’t think another cup size down will fix the the tallness either. A 32E is probably the best fit but honestly, between the two, I like my 32F better, I think. Even though it is taller. It’s not that much taller.

      Try Chantelle's sports bra. It's structured almost exactly like panache, but the cups are shorter AND the j-hook is adjustable.

      Just be careful that you're getting your correct size (Chantelle uses EU sizing).

    • Yeah I have tried the Chantelle. Maybe I should pop over to the shop here that carries them to compare.

    • What a lovely colour I think the one cup up is better.did you try 30 FF??

    • maraki no, as the 30 is too tight. I prefer my 32F to this even though the cup is a bit big and tall. I’d rather try a 32E than a 30FF.

    • So stay in 32F it’s better in fit I say 30 band because it’s fits different

    • Yeah 32 is better for me than 30 for my needs. If I was running or going to be doing higher impact activity, I could probably do a 30. For Pilates and being on my back a lot, I need a little bit looser for comfort. The 32 is still supportive and more comfortable.

    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...

    I absolutely love this sports bra! It fits me perfectly in my usual Panache size of 30F, and it does exactly what it says on the tin. I wear it on the loosest hook for light to moderate exercise, but I'll reel it into the middle or tightest for more serious bounce reduction. It's incredibly comfortable, and it reduces bounce to an unnoticeable minimum.

    This is the first underwired sports bra that I've ever tried, and I was impressed by their clever design. There is a layer of foam protecting the chest from any underwire related discomfort. The wires end approximately ... half way up the center panel; the foam cups provide the shape the rest of the way up. As a result of the construction, the uppermost central part of the cup is rather square-ish. My breasts don't fill this section, and in this small area the support is less, but I suspect that it makes the sizing more forgiving than other bras.

    The racerback option on the straps doesn't really work for me, though it would likely work for someone shorter. I'm 5'7", and I can just fasten the racerback clip if I lengthen the straps to their maximum. However, the X winds up high on my back, and the foam straps dig uncomfortably into the muscles at the base of my neck.

    Extra measurements (since these weren't options on the chart):
    Cup width: 14cm
    Cup depth: 21.5

    I was so excited to hear that Panache was coming out with a sport bra so I bought it as soon as I could. Unfortunately, this size didn't quite work for me so it will be returned and maybe exchanged.

    The bra is underwired and has a moulded cup as well. In terms of sizing, the people at www.lessbounce.com recommended going with your regular Panache bra size which is what I did and would also recommend to try first. The band fits similarly to my other Panache 30 bands. The cup ... width is also fine for me, it's just the volume at the tops of the cups that were a problem. There's a clip on the back for a racer back option if that's what you want as well.

    Only the white and black are available now. The grey colourway should be available late October and purple will be available in November.

    Edit: I added more measurements to the chart since those options are available now. Please note the wire length has been estimated since I don't have this bra anymore, and I'm unable to leave the field blank.

    • I noticed there is only a .4" difference in cup depth between this size and the 30E. Shouldn't it be an entire inch? Also what country cup conversion are you using? (F/DDD or DDDD?) I wanted to order this in a 28, but there are very few of these on here to compare to my size (the bradar is very inaccurate for me).

    • I'm not sure how much of a difference there should be, but those are the measurements I got. I don't own this bra, but when I tried them on, there wasn't a huge different in fit, mostly the height of the cups and the width of the wires. The bra is UK sizing so I'm not sure if that's DDD or DDDD (to many D's for my liking...) since international size charts are giving me different equivalents. If you're interested, maybe contact http://www.breakoutbras.com/. They're based in the US and they have this bra in stock so I think they may be better in helping you find the size you need.

    Just received this bra and used it for the first time for low-intensity cardio and an abs circuit training session. Wicks sweat really well, the padded straps are SUPER comfortable, and is somehow flattering even though it's cut so high. It feels super secure, though I haven't yet tested it during more high-impact activity. Measurements note: cup width was measured end of wire to end of wire, though the underwire ends several inches below the top edge of the gore; strap width measured at widest point. I'm FOB with squishy tissue and feel this has a little extra room at the apex, but not enough to feel any ... jostling when I'm moving around. The cup width is so good, though, that I'd be hesitant to go down a cup size, especially in a band this tight. I guess I could try sizing up to a 32E, but I really needed something ASAP, so I'm keeping this one for now - may order another to try in the future. Loving the lack of uniboob and the super comfy padding around the wire. I would feel really comfortable wearing this on its own going out for a run, though I've worn sports bras on their own before like that that had even less coverage. As an added plus (for me), the black molded foam cups are covered with a thin, seamed black athletic fabric that I feel conceals nipple protrusion nicely.

      Thrilled to read it wicks sweat away well. Perhaps with your encouragement, I'll try the Panache Sport in 80F+ degrees. I'm so reluctant. ;-) The shape is lovely on you!

    Best sports bra ever! Gives great shape and support! I love how it separates my boobs so I get some air flow. I also wear it around the house a lot because it is so comfortable! Great for staying at home with 2 active boys!

    This bra is very comfortable, I wear it to work out and as an every day bra. It gives a nice shape under clothing. I wish there was a bra identical to this in every way but maybe with a lower cut neckline for when I do want to show a bit of cleavage.

    This is a pretty good sports bra, probably the best I can find in my size, super comfy, and I love the pink colour. The band of this bra and the straps have stretched a lot though. This bra was tight in the band and the straps when I bought it but is not anymore. I have only had this bra for about 1 and a bit months but have worn it a lot - I have 2 the same and wear them most days. I am wearing the bra on the tightest hooks now, I have ordered some with band size 28 instead. If I jump in ... this bra (which I do), my boobs hurt a bit from the bounce - I'm hoping the smaller band size will be more supportive on me, but this one is great for walking and low impact stuff like pilates.

    Its a nice looking bra, looks good on and gives a really good shape under tops (round and not pointy), and I've been washing it in one of those bra bags with the hard plastic in both ends in the machine with no problems. One thing is that the eyes for the hooks pull out a bit - but that is easily fixed with a few stitches.

    I have found this bra is also good in really hot weather - it seems to breathe and be a lot cooler than a regular moulded t-shirt bra.

    This is such a great sports bra. I prefer it to the Freya sport with moulded cups, because I think this one gives a better shape. I ran with it and had no issues with bouncing or moving.

    This was my exercise plan:
    (1) Shop for an excellent sports bra that would use encapsulation rather than compression to support the boobs, for a flattering look
    (2) Wait until bra comes in a color I like
    (3) Buy bra in my chosen color and most common UK size
    (4) Exercise wearing pretty sports bra that makes my workout clothes look good while sweating

    This plan worked great until step 4. Don't judge.

    As many reviewers have mentioned, the center gore is high in the wired Panache Sports Bra. The cups go even higher. Surprisingly, I can't feel the underwires because they are plushly cushioned. I know they must be resting on breast tissue; ... any gore higher than 1.75" can't help it. When I press on the gore, however, I feel no discomfort. The top of the cups don't gape. If you're looking down my bra, you can see the boob separation, which means the wires are separating them. The cups themselves, however, lie on top of my breasts to give a crop top look. Worn as a top or peeking out from under a warmup jacket, the purple Panache Sports Bra is very becoming. I know this because I've tried it on multiple times. I always congratulate myself on having found a well-fitting, flattering, and supportive sports bra.
