    Fits

    Panache has made my best-fitting, most attractive bras, including this one that I just bought on clearance at Nordstrom. First I tried it in 36H because I couldn't find any in 34HH, my usual Panache size. The cups and center gore fit better than any bra I've worn in years, but I had to fasten it on the middle hooks. I was prepared to buy it anyway because I loved it, but the sales associate searched their inventory and found a 34HH that had been misplaced. In 34HH it fits snugly but comfortably on the loosest hook, with great lift and shaping and a bit of cleavage.

    My Ariza is a Lisa Frank dreamscape of purple, pink, and turquoise. I haven't had many bras this pretty since the early '90s, when I could still wear a D cup. So far, Panache and elomi are the only brands I've found that offer me this combination of form and function. Ariza is both girly and sexy, and I don't feel it's unsuitable for wearing under my t-shirts.

    My biggest issue with this bra is that the seam on the bottom of the cup split after one wear. It is still wearable, but I don't usually have that kind of issue with nice quality bras like Panache! I tried this in a 32hh, my usual panache size, and it was a bit snug for my liking with some quadra-boob.. The 34hh seemed to fit nicely in the dressing room.
    After wearing for a day, I noticed the center gore was turning in. It would not continually lay flat - only one wire at a time was flat. I have this problem often, as my cups are ... very close together, so there isn't much room for the gore. I'm also full on top, so it is difficult to wear many plunge styles. This was unusually noticeable in this bra, and it became uncomfortable. It's a shame - the bra is absolutely beautiful. I saw it online before seeing it in person, and no pictures really do the colors justice. The turqoise and orange are much bolder than I expected.

    The fabric is completely sheer. It's hard to tell in the stock photo. Not an issue for me, but it might be for some. It's also not terribly soft. The band size runs small. I can fasten it, but it's very tight! I should have gone up a size. Also, the gore seems really high to me, but it does tack very well. This bra also gives my breasts a really weird shape, almost deformed looking. Not sure if it's the bra itself or just a bad fit though. It IS very pretty, with nice floral appliques on the top. The status are also too far apart for me, but I my frame is on the narrow side.

    Absolutely beautiful design - pretty colors. Construction feels very sturdy and supportive. The cups fit wonderfully.

    Unfortunately, the gore is waaaaaaay too high for me and the fabric over the wires at the bottom has some scratchy lace detail that rolls under the wires and digs into my chest. I'm sure i could sew the fabric so it doesn't roll under, but then it wouldn't look as pretty. There's nothing i can do about the gore height/wire length, so this one is a pass for me.

    If there were some sort of plunge version of this bra, i'd probably be all over it.
