    Colette is an older discontinued style that I've wanted to try for a long time. I managed to find it from one of my regular eBay sellers recently. While 28E is my best size, 30DD is a safe sister size, although I always have the problem with Panache bands running a bit large on me when compared to Cleo 30DD and other brands that I wear (B. Tempt'd by Wacoal, OnGossamer). This style doesn't come in 28 bands, or at least not in 28E, so I went with the sister size.

    Luckily, this sister size fits well, though it is true that the band is a ... little large. I found the 3 piece cup to fit very similarly to somewhere between the 28E Cleo Marcie and 28E Cleo Kali. The only thing I felt was a little off about the fit is that the fullest part of the cup is proportioned a little off for me, as the fullest part of the cup hits me a little high. However, this is a minor quibble and overall the fit is pretty spot on if the band were a 28. I can wear it on the tightest hook though, and it stays in place, so it is workable, but definitely not what I would consider a snug band.

    The cups are super pretty, made of the same soft mesh as Marcie/Lucy/Kali, but with a large scale all over floral embroidery. The embroidery style reminds me a bit of the Panache Loretta that I tried and ended up returning a few months ago. I think the styling is very delicate and elegant, and makes this bra the more sophisticated version of Marcie. The construction of the band, back, and straps is almost identical to Marcie, though the straps here have a gentle polka dot texture instead of the ribbed elastic on Marcie. I wish I could find it in the Ice Blue colorway as well, but sadly this is pretty difficult to find at this point. Highly recommended if you can find it!
