    Look - Even though it's not perfect, I really love this bra. I needed a neutral/nudeish bra to go under my white graduation dress, and this bra (in blossom) was a perfect nudey pink. I usually dislike nude bras, the colors often look horrible on me, but this was gorgeous.

    Now on the fit! The band is definitely firm on this bra, I wouldn't size down. My ribcage measures about a 31, and this definitely wasn't too loose on me. I'd also recommend this bra for someone full on top. The bra is pretty open at the top and I've seen many pictures of this bra on people ... with the top wrinkling/empty. I didn't have this problem whatsoever, which is a welcome surprise. My only true fit problem was on my right boob, the cup doesn't completely cover me on the sides, but not enough to cause any spillage. This can be easily fixed by going up a size.

    Comfort - Comfort wise, this bra is alright. It seems a little stiff, there's really no padding to the underwires and the material definitely isn't the softest. I had a few problems with the lace at the bottom of the cup folding under and leaving some pretty severe red marks. I hope this problem can be solved after a wash or two.

    Overall, this is a really great bra! Excellent support, beautiful design.

    This bra is the Panache Ariza in the Midnight/Fuschia colorway (#5051). I tried to add it, but couldn't access all the options so I could click on OK or whatever (the pop-up needs a scroll option). Again, I'm so close to perfection I can taste it. This bra is very close, but I'm still going to send it back because the center gores dig.

    Likes:
    * Strap placement is pretty good even on me, and that's really good considering this is a balconnet bra. The seams on the strap/cup junction are pretty smooth, so they don't irritate my skin, so this may work on someone even if the straps are ... placed a bit too wide.
    * The style is good, I prefer the half cup styles because on me, they cover what full cup styles cover on the average woman.
    * Nice shape, no torpedo boobs, but not VS style dome boobs either.
    * 3 hooks! Hooray!
    * L.O.V.E. the closeness of the wires in the center gore--ideally I'd need them stacked, but in the real world, this is the next best thing. They touch and make a very narrow center.
    * The embroidery on this bra is gorgeous!

    Dislikes:
    * The center gore is at least 1" too tall for me. I fit best in 3" or less center gores, so that it doesn't dig into my (apparently prominent) sternum.

    I really need a 33 band. On the Andorra I was using the tightest hook (34 band), and on this one I was using the loosest hook and while it was fine once it was on, I had some trouble getting it turned once I had fastened it in the front. I'd probably order this size again and just use an extender for the first few wearings. If this bra came in a plunge, it would already be on it's way to me, but they don't seem to make a plunge balconnet.

    I don't like Panache; they don't like me. Their so-called balconies are really full coverage on me but they always look so pretty on those models :( Their wires are too freaking wide AND tall on the sides. The cups are too freaking shallow. It's a hate-hate relationship.
    And then I saw the Violet colorway and decided I Just. Didn't. Care.
    There was a perfect storm: colorway lust, mostly ill-fitting bras in the drawer, surprisingly good reviews, an adventure with some encouraging feedback including a Zulily sale (with matching briefs available). There was nothing for it but to jump on it and try.
    Giggles.
    It's awesome.
    I could use a cup size up, but it's totally wearable. The wires are narrow enough AND short enough not to piss me off. Straps are skinny, which is a nice change - although only half-adjustable. The band fits like it was made for me and has 3 hooks.
    Have bought another colorway and more panties. It's that good.

    A good, basic bra that I would never have tried if I hadn't fallen for the violet mix colorway first. This one is the blossom (barely peach) and the fit is consistent. It is wearable, although I would go up a size if I was paying full price.
    Pretty for a full coverage (balconette my ass), well made, comfy after break in. Skinny straps (yay!) are almost too short and only half adjustable.
    Will buy more - in a 32H.
