What is great about this bra is the soft lace, the soft lining in the cups and the soft material of the wings. This is one of the most comfortable bras that I have held in my hands, very nice to the touch.
It doesn't quite fit me right though because the cup shape is completely wrong for me. I am very bottom heavy without a lot of volume on top with very soft breasts. In many bras I got a sort of a ski jump shape on top of my breasts. The Panache Emily however is made for women who are full on top and have firm breasts. ...
In the Panache Emily I cannot fill out the top, thus my breasts droop downward and the cup feels very unstable. I can skip rope in the Tango II Balconette, in the Panache Emily I have to be careful about moving at all. At the same time the wires are too narrow for me, they cut into the side and I cannot push them far upward enough for them to sit into the fold of my breasts.
Another problem I have with this bra are the straps. These are very narrow and very stretchy for a bra in this size. The stretchy straps contribute to the feeling that the bra is unstable, plus they cut into the flesh. When I shorten the straps to get lence bounce the seam between the cup and the Side Support panel starts cutting into my breasts, giving me in-cup quadboob. The in-cup quadboob issue might be less of a problem for somebody with firm breasts though.
The band on this bra was very tight. Normally I can close Freya bras and the Tango in a 38 band. It feels too tight, but I can close it. In the Emily I had to use several extenders to try this bra on.
I think the cup of the bra might be cut a bit deeper than the average Panache bra. Aside from that the bra that is IMO very similar to the Panache Emily is the Panache Ariza in terms of general shape it gives and breast shapes it is suited for.
