This bra was an exchange with another bratabaser for a 32J Cleo that didn't work for me. I am very pleased with the fit; the band is comfortable, the cups enclose the boobs completely, and it is super pretty.
It has also confirmed my theory that I need a shorter gore. I recently have been observing how my other bras fit and have wondered if that could be my "issue". This bra is comfortable unless my body is in certain positions and at that point the center wires dig into my sternum. Nonetheless, I am happy with the exchange because as I am comfortable with the overall fit, I actually wear this bra as opposed to the one I
exchanged which just sat unused in the drawer.

This is the bra size Bratabase recommended to me based on its calculator. Just really too big in every way. Beautiful colors and detailing though.

This used to be my favourite bra for a long time. Sadly my boobs decided to grow again. I need now a 32K/32KK in other Panache bras (like Floris and Melody) and probably a 32L in Ariza.
+ gives a uplifted round shape
+ full on top friendly
+ very sturdy construction
+ wires are a bit narrower than on most panache bras (Tango, Melody, Floris)
+ band is very firm and barely stretches out with wear
+ very supportive, gives "boobs of steel" feeling
- fabric is a bit itchy at first wears
- shoulder straps can dig in
- wire pain since the wires are very very stiff (but that also makes the bra so supportive for big / heavy boobs) but also note that I get pain from wires digging in in all my bras when I wear them a full day, because the bras have to carry a lot of weight

It is a very nice sturdy bra. Ariza known to have a very tight band. Mine has even smaller band that usual. Then i bought it at first i had to wear it with extender. Today I'm underbust measurement is 31" tight and I can comfortably wear it on the loosest hooks. The cups are smaller as well. I wear 32H in Andorra, in Ariza I can almost fill the cups. This bra fits more like 32HH.
I have soft breast, bottom full, very close together (breasts touch each over), set high on the chest. I didn't have a problem with poking wires while using extender.
The bra made from double mesh, keeps the girls in place and cool at as well.

It looks great, but it's not a good fit. The wires are stabby. Maybe because they're too wide?

So so pretty! Just like the black one, it almost fits. The one problem with this one is the wrinkling at the bottoms of the cups.

Another one that never fit and should have been returned. Life got in the way however. No review as it's never been worn.

Tis is a gorgeous bra, easily the prettiest nude colored bra I've ever seen.
The embroidery is gorgeous, and the fabric is firm and stretchy but very supportive.
This is the first bra I've ever owned that sits flat on my sternum...who knew they should actually DO that?! Downside is that I am fairly short waisted, And the center gore rubs, sometimes painfully on my chest. And it's TALL...5 inches. Half that would be sufficient. My fiancé refers to this as the bulletproof bra. The armholes are too small, so it rubs on my underarm, and I can't lengthen the straps enough to ease the fit there. I find ... myself reswooping multiple times over the course of a day, otherwise the wires pull rather painfully. (What causes that? The band is quite snug, too snug apparently, as I've actually pulled out the eyes on one of the rows. Too big cup?)
The wires are quite wide, which was great at first as I have a substantial amount of migrated breast tissue I'm trying to convince to move home, but as it does migrate, they get simultaneously more and less comfortable. They rub less, but poke more.
Keep in mind that this is my first attempt at a well fitting bra, so my assessment of why something is happening is definitely suspect. I think I'll try something other than a panache next, as the wires are notorious for being quite wide.

So even me got an Ariza. It has a broken hook so I cannot use it, but I still intend to keep it and just add a hook from one of my older bras. My pics with it are a little messy, but I take more as soon as I've fixed the hook.
I love the fabric!! It's so soft, it's as comfortable in fabric as my Andorras!
I want fully adjustable straps! That's probably the only complain I have about this bra. I couldn't alter the gore since it would make the band too tight for me in the front, even if it's technically too big in the back.

Ariza 34J (Mulberry Bravissimo Exclusive at least I guess it's that one, it looks different than in the pictures. It did also look different on Ebay and judging from the picture I though I'd get the pink / ivory one)
This bra fits differently compared to newer styles of Ariza (Violet Mix).
The wires are higher on older styles, I knew about this. But there are other differences.
I just had a weird feeling when putting the bra on. It definately fits better than the 32J (size-wise) but I have to close it already on second hooks and something about the fit is off.
Gore measurement comparison:
Violet Mix 32J: 1.7cm
Mulberry 34J : 2.3cm
Violet Mix 32J: 1.7cm
Mulberry 34J: 2.0 cm
The straps of the Mulberry are wider and lightly padded, which is a plus.
Now I try to make it work by taking in the gore.
