    Used to fit

    So Ava take two, band size down with same volume.

    Ordered a 34H since the 36GG - Panache » Ava Plunge (9396) was so stretchy. Overall fit remains the same for the most part. Band is much more snug on the first hooks (naturally) but not uncomfortably so. I get a little bit more quadboob at the gore because of my centerfullness, tho' the cup depth on both sizes remains 12." I imagine this will relax a little as both the lace and the band stretch out. Thankfully the stretch lace helps mask the issue, and I don't think it'll be a problem under tops.

    I forgot to ... mention in the review for my 36GG that the gore overlaps slightly where the wires meet, which is awesome. At both 36GG and 34H the gore is a half inch wide because of this.

    I will be returning the 36GG. I do recommend sizing down in the band for the Ava.

    I did pick up the matching bottoms this time and they are the same cut as Jasmine briefs. However, the different materials used makes a huge difference in fit and comfort. If I pick up the blush Ava (SS 2017) I will grab the matching bottoms.

    My gripes with the not terribly plungey nature of this plunge remain tho'. I know Panache can do 'em, see also:
    Panache Tango Ii Plunge Bra (3256) and Panache Porcelain Elan Moulded Plunge Bra (7326), which both feature gores of 2."

    Later update after wearing a few times and thoughts:

    So one thing brought up to me on reddit was how it was unfair to compare a full banded bra (Ava) to a partial banded (Tango) or one like the Elomi Betty Plunge Bra (8170). This is true. The gore ends at about the same place, but Tango's plunge seems shorter. That said, I would still like to see a plungier gore.

    Overall I'm happier in the 34H but the bra is some combination of stretchy and I'm not used to 2 hooks anymore, I felt like I had to adjust the band down just a little several times a day. Right now I can't see myself picking up the blush Ava next year unless it is either a bit firmer or I can alter the band not to stretch so much. (There are some tutorials, I will try them out.) Ava does not come in HH, so I could not go down one more band to try that out. (Which blows my mind anyway, the possibility of fitting into a 32 band.)

    The stretch lace is rather accommodating and so ridiculously soft tho', I REALLY want this bra model to work. And the stretch lace does mask the slight quad boob, which is not noticeable under tops.

    I know plenty of wearers who are comfy and happy in extended size 2-hook bras, maybe I just am not one. Time will tell.

    Didn't fit

    A gorgeous, comfortable bra that, sadly, seems to run a cup size small compared to other Panache bras - and doesn't come in an HH.
