    Envy is truly a lace bra made for comfort. I am so disappointed that this doesn't come in a 28DD, because the main problem with this bra on me is the band size. This is probably the most comfortable lace bra I have tried, and if it came in the right size for me, I think I would be wearing this all the time!

    I've found that Panache bands in general tend to run a bit large, and certainly much larger than the Cleo counterparts. While in Cleo I usually wear a 30D, this size is hit or miss for me in Panache. The band, ... while supportive and well-constructed with a wide bottom elastic, is too large, and the double layer stretch mesh construction means it is on the stretchy side. Fantastic for comfort, but not ideal if the band doesn't come in your size!

    The cradle shares the same construction as Andorra, where the bottom elastic crisscrosses at the gore to provide better stability. I love this detail as it really makes the bra feel more secure and stable at the gore. The cup construction is a 3 piece with side panel (technically 4 piece as the bottom cup is 2 pieces), and is the same block as Jasmine. The exterior cup is stretch houndstooth lace, while the interior cup is lined with supportive powermesh. The top cup is soft, stretchy lace with no binding, so it is fairly flexible for different shapes. I found that this fabrication works much better on me than Jasmine, which was too lightweight and ended up wrinkling a lot in the cups (also because the band was too big). Now, the cups wrinkle on me a fair bit because I can't get the band tight enough (or tighten the straps further, since it just makes the band ride up), but overall the size and shape of the cups works pretty well for me. They give a nice rounded shape and seem to be a balance fit (not FOB or FOT leaning). The straps are also nicely textured to help with grip.

    My only real gripe other than the size range for this bra is that I don't love the visual appearance of the houndstooth lace juxtaposed with the floral lace used in the upper cup. I much prefer the floral lace, but I think the combination looks really weird together. I'd love to see Panache bring this fit to a wider size range and use a floral lace like the Andorra.

    I was able to try this shop in a local store in the region where I spend my holidays. My breasts are FOB, rather high set and neither wide nor narrow I guess.
    This bra was the biggest surprise. I always thought this bra would fit like a nightmare on all persons with smaller breasts. It is still no perfect fit, there is some wrinkling on the top of the cup (I guess it would't be better one size down, its more a shape mismatch) but it is wearable. If I had been on the beginning of my journey to fitting bras I might have liked this bra but at the moment I look for different types of bras.

    Used to fit

    Envy in a smaller size, experiment #2.

    As the 30DD Envy I tried was still too big for me (even though until recently I had a good fit in the 30E) I went down to the smallest size Panache makes this bra in: the 30D. It fits pretty well, and it's comfortable. The lace is slightly stretched on my larger side, but it lays flat, and I have to take a massive breath to make it show any hint of quadding - and even then it doesn't show under a T-shirt.
