    Panache Ariza has been made from AW2008-AW2013. The newer versions had a slightly different cut and lower wires. This one although is one with the good old cut in all it's difficult-to-fit glory!

    I had many Arizas when I was around 30JJ-32K a few years ago. The Ariza gave me a better shape and support than the Panache Tango and it wasn't as weak as Jasmine or Envy. I liked how it made my boobs appear smaller by having them close to chest in a round slightly minimized shape. So there were times when I loved the bra but it was also always kinda difficult. I have not ... worn an Ariza bra since 2014 since when I grew out of my 32Ks I could never get a good fit in it again. Lately I went down in size and tried to wear my old 32Ks again, but they gave me horrible quadboob. So I jumped on the opportunity to try this 34K as an exchange bra.

    The issues with this particular Ariza 34K bra:

    The band on this bra is much too big. Unstretched it measures 78cm, and I measure 79cm underbust, so I can just wrap it around me without even stretch it. Another Ariza oddity: bands up to J -cup in Ariza ran small- tts while in JJ-K they suddenly got very big/loose.

    The wires under the arms are extremely tall! I'm not petite and I have somewhat tall roots but it's just too much! They poke me in my arms very badly and stab me if I try to sit down wearing the bra! Ideally the wires of my old 30K Ariza would be a good fit, but the cup volume is much too small on that one. Speaking of cup volume, this bra measures 37cm cup depth when I stretch it over my knee. If I don't even stretch it much, it measures 35cm! For comparison Tango 34K has data here of 40cm cup depth in 34K!

    So Ariza's cups are super shallow! They are also very tall and wide. Therefore I can somewhat fit my boobs into the bra. I tried to show in my pictures what happens when I try to arrange my boobs into the bra so they are fully inside of the cups. I cannot fill the bottom, because there is barely any room, the cup is super shallow there. Then my soft boobs are pushed against my chest and even fold somewhat inside the bra. The side of the cup and the top is empty again. I wonder how I could ever get a decent fit in an Ariza bra? I assume that my boobs were more shallow-tall before my weight gain. This bra was an epic fail but I learned a lot from it and how my breast shape changed with weight gain and recent weight loss.

    The unique feature for me that made Ariza "better" than all the other Panache full cups: besides being very supportive it's the U-shaped wire that is so sturdy you can barely distort it! While on other bras the wire can be pulled back by the band a lot, on Ariza it barely happens, I tried to show it with the pic with my hand under the band. The wire keeps it's U-shape even with tension on the band while on some bras the wire is so weak it can end on your back so easily (see 34K - Bravissimo » Boudoir Beau (PA07) wire and that bra band was not even tight on me!)

    Wires are too long and poke under armpits. Apex of breasts is too far apart, feels fine but would look better closer together; this is more exaggerated in the violet mix one than in the mint one. Planning to take in gore and shorten underwires.

    Edit: I shortened the underwires, took in the gore, and lined the underwire channels with fleece. It fits much better now, but I have to wear an extender because the band is smaller with the gore taken in.

    Nor for me, to wide for my body and seems to point boobs out instead of in.

    I got this second hand from another Bratabaser with view to alterations, but I'd forgotten about Ariza's crazy sizing inconsistencies. This Ariza is in the Blossom colourway, and is huge compared to what I expected from the Violet Mix colourway I tried in a different size.

    Blossom would kind of be a nude colour I guess, but it's not really nude on me, as the tone is too cool for my warm skin tone. It's a 4 piece cup, which is described as a balcony, but feels more like a full cup. The straps are partially adjustable, and adjust towards the back, so there's no way to force the ... slide over the thicker bit of the strap for more leeway. It fastens with 3 rows of 3 columns of hooks.

    I've recently found Panache Ariza in 30K too small in the cup, Jasmine 30K borderline too small, but this bra is very large. The wires are long, the cups are wide, the straps are long, the band stretches a long way compared to other bras of a comparable size. It's just a big bra. It's actually the first bra I've tried on in months which doesn't cut in on top, but it's so huge everywhere else that I can't wear it.

    Everything seems to be of the usual sturdy Panache quality, so I think it would provide great support to someone who was the correct size for the bra.

    Right when I put it on, Mr. BF declared "that's the worst looking bra I've ever seen!" My thoughts? It's on the far left hook and still feels loose, the band flips up at the front under the cups, I'm poked by the wire on the right side, the gore lays almost flat, and I've got empty space at the tops and bottoms of the cups. Where do I go from here?

    This bra is overall just too big for me and the cut was wrong. I bought this bra when I was in a state of „I just have to size up enough cup sizes to solve all issues“ so I sized up from a 34J Ariza that was to small directly to a 34K.
    The band was too big. The was gore too wide. Cups were too shallow on bottom and on the side. Wires were too wide and tall (they even poked me under the arms ) These issues caused some very weird fit issues: The cups gaped on top towards the straps and under the arms on the side. On the other side, there was not enough room near the center and on bottom so that the gore (which I took in) would not lie flat.

    I really like this bra and wanted it to fit so badly. The underwires just come up a bit high under my arm and poke me in the arm pit https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The shoulder straps are lightly padded, and are soft and comfortable. The band feels very sturdy and supportive. It has pretty embroidery on it that didn't seem to show too much the few minutes I had it on under a shirt. This is the blossom color which is a nice neutral. I am considering ordering one in a cup size smaller just to see if that will resolve the wire issue. The cup fits pretty well maybe just a hair big. No obvious gaping or wrinkling, but felt like there was just a little extra room in there.
