It's not you; it's me. I'm sorry, but things were never going to work between us.
For one, your straps are not fully adjustable, and I am tall.
For another, my boobs are a bit wider than your underwire provides for -- but really, just a smidge. Similarly, on a first wear, I already had to fasten the band on the tightest hooks.
I mean, when that happens, you know the bra-relationship days are numbered.
If it were just about the wire and the band, I might have been able to try to make it work. But... um... I'm not sure how to say this. You're ...kind of closed off at the top, and my boobs felt like you were suffocating them.
Phew. Glad that's off my chest.
Listen, I'm sure you'd be a fabulous bra for a bosom that's a touch narrower and fuller on bottom. You have a lot going for you. You're supportive, you're well put together, and you're pretty.
Someday, you'll meet the boobs that are right for you, and then you'll both be so happy. Read more 75 more words
There's nothing particular about this bra that's bad - it fits relatively well and it's comfy enough, but it just strikes me as a bit 'meh'. Like a lot of Panache styles, it's a bit dated and frumpy, and I don't think the lace is as pretty on as it looks in some pictures. That said, the little shorts that match are a lovely fit.
This has very 'round' cups - the underwires are pretty huge and come up very high under the arms, and there's very full coverage. As with a lot of Panache bras, it's good for wide boobs like mine as there's lots of room on the side, but I think this could be a bit lower at the front for a more flattering fit.
I really want to love this bra but it is so ITCHY. The fabric - especially at the straps - is like slowly being tortured. The quality is nice and it fits me well but the itchiness is something I can't get past. The fabric is a little stiff and I'm not crazy about the shape, although it is very round. It's a bit too low and natural for me.
A bra so matronly, it feels straight out of a 1950s Sears catalog. I would totally wear this if I was dressing up as a grandmother for Halloween. The lace is itchy and outdated and the long bow on the gore does little else than irritate my skin. I can't.
This bra fits pretty well, but the lace at the top gapes slightly unless I lean or cross my arms. I guess I need a little more fullness on top to be the ideal shape for this bra, although it is pretty.
This bra seems to have very wide wires, and they are also very uncomfortable especially at the gore. The cup is also too big, especially at the top of the cup. Sizing down a cup may help with the cup fit, but I think it would still be uncomfortable.
I have full on top and pendulous breasts with a wide and short root. My breasts are also high set and splayed.
I received this bra in a grab bag from Break Out Bras, and I wasn't sure what to expect since this bra doesn't get a lot of attention. I ordered a 38JJ because my normal size of 36K was out of stock.
Visually speaking, this bra looks like the Panache Ariza and Kris Line Brilliant had a baby. I don't have a problem with this at all, but it's very misleading seeing as how the sizes under GG cups have a sheer top section and look ...like a completely different bra. I can see how someone would be disappointed if they were expecting a sheer bra and received this one.
Like the Ariza, this bra is made of a sheer fabric that looks mostly opaque when it's on. It's very very scratchy, and since I haven't washed it or worn it for long periods yet, I don't know if it softens with wear and washing. I have extremely sensitive skin, and after taking off the super soft Panache Melody Fullcup and putting this on, I was slightly disappointed because the fabric is so rough. It feels downright unpleasant.
The band on this bra is extremely tight in my opinion. It doesn't even reach 38 inches even when I pull it as hard as possible (but not enough to damage the bra). I usually wear 36 band bras, and have to wear 38 band bras on the tightest hooks to get support. This bra feels snug on the loosest hooks right out of the bag. Keep that in mind if you're between band sizes or if you get uncomfortable in tight bands.
The straps are much too long for me, and this means I'm going to have to alter them to fit me properly since I'm short with high set breasts. This might be slightly difficult because the straps are adorned with a piece of mesh that matches the pattern embroidered on the bra cups, and it might look strange once the straps are altered. I'll have to post before and after pictures. I personally don't care if the straps look weird, but it's something to consider if you also have problems with long straps and tend to alter them. One thing I will not have to alter is the gore, because the wires are basically overlapping at the top of the gore and don't get very wide at the bottom.
The fit of this bra reminds me a lot of the Ariza, but because of the loose straps the fit is lacking and I'm being let down a little bit. Besides the straps, something just feels off about the fit of this bra and I'm not sure what it is. The lace at the top gaps the tiniest bit and the cups feel slightly too tall for my short roots, but not so tall to warrant going down a cup size. I feel that I can't accurately critique this bra without giving it a wash and shortening the straps. Read more 414 more words
