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.

Finally a sports bra that fits! It holds my boobs in great. It's a little wide, but I expected that from panache. I'm a 30GG/H but I prefer a little looser of a band, so I went with a 32GG. I probably could have done a 32G, but I mostly fill out the bra just fine. I love how tall the cups are without being uncomfortable. It's like added security and hides my Tail of Spence https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

I wore this when I had a 32-33" underbust, and wore a 32Hish in bras and it was great.
I have narrow and short roots, am FOT, close-set and the Panache Sport is a wonderful fit (it was great beforehand when I had a 34GG, and now it's great in 30G).
It gives a really nice rounded shape rather than the often pointy shape that sports bras can give, as the cups are lightly padded. The underwires are coated in silicone so they don't dig in even when the band is firm. The straps are padded in the right way so they don't look frumpy but they don't dig in your shoulders.
It's very comfortable and holds everything in place perfectly, it feels very secure. It also looks pretty enough that I would wear it as a sports top out in public if it was warm enough. The purple colourway is my favourite and I think the nicest looking, but since it is discontinued, I now have the black in the 30G.

I've lost count now how many I've had of this style over the years now. Anyway, it's as good as the rest of them. See my other reviews...

This is my 9th one of this style! It's as wonderful as they've always been. I love the colors. It's the perfect red, white, and blue, and makes me feel all patriotic when I wear it. 🙂

This is my holy grail of sports bras.
On a practical and functional level, it works. Oh boy does it work. No bouncing (well, as little as possible. Physics still exist, no matter what bra you wear), no suffocating. No smooshing my poor breasts into my chest and armpits and pretending like that was how it had to be. Just firm but comfortable support.
The best part, though, has to be how GOOD this bra looks while being practical. The bra itself is lackluster. I have the plain black one. It looks like a plain black sports bra with some fancy meshing on it. Not ugly, just nothing exciting. Which is fine, and exactly how I want it. But the good part comes with the shape and silhouette this bra gives you. Perfect, round, perky, and smooth. No weird pointiness. Just natural-yet-sexy. Not something you'd ever expect with a sports bra.

This is the most comfortable sports bra I've ever had. Separate cups keep my boobs apart well enough to prevent sweaty cleavage. I've only worn the straps the regular way, but I think the racer back option is nice too.
The 32 band is admittedly "too tight", but this is a choice that I've made. I think that a sports bra should be tight, to prevent any chance of the cups/underwire moving around and causing abrasion. I can definitely breath in it, plus it feels comfortable even after hours of wear (e.g. day trips on the bike).
If I could change something about this bra, it would be the ... appearance - It looks a bit bulky and wide. Long hair can sometimes get caught in the racer back hook.
Edit: I've used the bra and it's "sister" in another colour for over a year now. I think they are a size too small in the cup and I might do better in a 32H - I've considered 34GG too but the band might be too loose. I haven't used the racerback option, because the straps stay on my shoulders just fine. Also, because of my long torso, the racerback clip is too high for me and puts pressure on my neck.
The support level of the bra is very good. Actually so good that now, that my breasts aren't taking my attention, I have become aware that my bum and tummy are jiggling https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> What I don't like about the bra is that while it look like it gives almost total coverage to the chest, it really doesn't. When I bend over, my cleavage shows. And when I'm upside down, my boobs hit my chin. So there is still some room for improvement.

My best fit.
I tried a 32g and 32H which where too small and too big, so the 32GG fit ! It was pretty tight, but comfortable.
I've lost some weight and its a bit big in the band. I haven't worn it excessively but I close it on the middle hook (for comfort). If for sports, I'd close it on the tightest. I have to tighten the straps all the way, and its okay, but for sports, they should be tighter. When I sit down, the straps rise from my shoulders.
The cups was almost cutting in at first, but now they don't. When I sit ... down, they gap a lot though. I'd like to try a cup down soon, and a tighter band, but I'll wait until its really nessecary.
I use it as an everyday bra (when I can't stand the discomfort of my other bras). It gives a perfect round shape, but I think it's add a bit of bulk and its too wide. By that, I mean than it makes my chest a bit wider, so I'd prefer a more centered shape for everyday wear. I'm conscious about it, so I'd never wear it to a party or with lots of people. But around the house, or walking or grocery shopping I don't mind. It's very comfy and I use it the most of my bras.
But for sports, I'd need a tighter size. The band does ride up, but its not really an issue like it is with other bras. It doesn't slide down in the front like most bras do on me. So for now, it's great. I'd say it runs a bit big in the cup, but the band seems true to size and very firm. I'm full on top so I worry that a smaller size would cut in, despite it being too big now.
Another issue is that I don't really know how to wash it haha.
But all in all, it's AMAZING. Best sports bra ever! I'm never buying a different type of sports bra.
