This is my best fitting bra right now. The band is slightly loose on me, but not overly so. Just enough that I'll need to wear it on the middle hook to start, which is ok by me. I've never had an encapsulation sports bra, and I pretty much love it. No awkward bounce and extreme cleavage like compression bras give. It's perfect for runs.
I don't fill out the top of the cups perfectly, but the 30E was definitely too small, so much that it was slightly uncomfortable. I'm okay with this since it means I can use it when my breasts are swollen too. Maybe a more FOT shape would fit this bra better.
The wires are slightly too wide as well, but not so much that they're uncomfortable.

This bra came highly recommended from /r/ABraThatFits and as I need a properly fitting sports bra, I decided to try it out. The quality seems really high, it's pretty comfortable to wear, and it's nice and soft. It holds me down pretty darn well and I felt supported. I especially like the J-hook.

This is a great sports bra! The underwire does not poke and the band stays in place. The only issue I have with fit is that the wires are a bit too wide but I have narrow roots so that's a common problem for me. This doesn't really affect the support or comfort of the bra. I love the wider straps and really love the encapsulation style of separating and supporting as opposed to the the typical squish-into-a-uniboob sports bra. I love the way that my breasts look in this bra. I would definitely recommend this bra to someone similar to me.

I bought the Red/Charcoal Panache Sport Bra in 30F after trying the same bra in 30E. Some reviewers suggest sizing down in the cups and/or sizing up in the band. If your breasts out of a bra are very round and even to full on top, I suggest starting with your usual size. When I tried the 30E, I had lots of tissue escaping under the arms.
The padding in this bra is sensible and makes it comfortable. The underwire channels are padded, the straps are padded, and the fabric the eyes are sewn into is padded. The cups are moulded and are probably thick enough to hide evidence ... of nipples. If you've tried the Chantelle Hausmann T-Shirt Bra, however, you will notice the Hausmann is much plusher. For a sports bra, however, the Panache is adequately plush.
The color is a true red, and the charcoal accents coordinate well with the red. I admit I wanted this colorway in particular and was prepared not to replace my outgrown sports bras if I couldn't get it.
The shape the Panache Sport Bra is famously rounded from the side and front. This holds true for me.
Note on measurements:
As always, I took measurements based on where the wires actually were, not where the wire channels start or end. The exception is the gore, which is the entire fabric and wire vertical measurement together. I believe this is more relevant than just how high the wires go. If I were to omit the fabric at the top center, the gore measurement would be about 3.5."
I measured strap width at the back, where they attach to the band. These straps are only minimally adjustable. The great majority of strap length is the justifiably famous, padded strap material that varies greatly in width, from where it attaches to the cup to the point it attaches to the part that is adjustable.

I was originally wearing the 32FF but then had lost 20 lbs and needed a replacement. After searching measurements, I opted for this 30F I found at a sale. It fits me perfectly. So comfortable and nothing moves. The top of the right breast is slightly empty, but the left fills perfectly so I'd rather that than squish the left too hard. I got the raspberry colour one and it's so pretty. I'm pretty confident this is the only brand of sports bra I'll ever buy again

The bra has a very high cut, and that makes that I don't fill the top of the cups. I could probably do with a DD, but the wires were to narrow on that one. Even though I don't full up the cups completely, it still gives my wonderful support and I would surely recommend it to everybody. It feels nice and soft, softer than everyday bra's. Yhe cups have a little bit of padding. Just enough to make sure there are no nipples poking though, no more, and it looks nice.

This is my favorite sports bra ever and totally worth the money! It's comfortable and it does a great job (no bouncing even when I ride horses!!). Plus, the profile/shape is still nice and the colors and appearance are appropriate for wearing without a shirt .

I ordered this sports bra in 30F because I felt that 30E might have been a hint too small.
In 30F the band is not tight enough! It must be hooked in the "middle tightness", if it is on the loosest hooks, it´s definitely too loose. I´m able to use the tightest hooks, too.
There is no cutting of breast tissue in the upper part anymore. But I´m not sure if I fill properly the bottom of cups. And there is odd gapping/wrinkling of the left cup in the upper section, I say odd because my left breast is bigger! There is however very little gapping, I wonder if it´s "okay".
So I cannot really decide if this is better for me than 30E. The band for sure should be tighter, but the cups... I wonder if my size would be somewhere middle of 30E and 30F.
This 30F sure feels more comfortable than 30E which kind of presses my chest.

The bra is hard to clasp, but once it's on, your boobs are SET. No bouncing whatsoever. I love the feature where I could hook it as a racerback bra. That being said, it is quite a snug fit.
