Bought this bra used on BTB, together with a Snake Jasmine in the same size.
The bras arrived neatly packaged and are still in good wearable condition, as advertised.
When I first discovered the Envy (4-5 years ago) I purchased multiple sizes to decide which worked best, so I had previously tried it on in this size, 32G.
Back then I discarded the 32G as 'too flimsy', as I preferred the 3-hooks and sturdier construction in the 30GG that I kept, in black.
Now, I specifically wanted a 'lighter' fitting stretch lace bra (quarantine comfort, ya know), and I'm trying to be more mindful of re-using and recycling - which made me ... buy these 2 bras second-hand.
I really love the pink color, which may also come in handy in summer under lighter tops or dresses.
Comfort-wise, it's not ideal though. It fits alright, but the wires are still Panache-firm (which makes sense) and the gore is too high for me - I had to bend it out with pliers to stop pressing into my sternum. Interestingly, the gore feels relatively higher than the floral 30GG that I still own? Perhaps the 'scaling' of the 30GG works better for my frame.
Compared to the 30GG, this does feels like 'less bra' as I remembered. But fit-wise there are some issues: wires are too wide, the narrow band feels less comfortable to me and the narrow-ish shoulder straps are pretty wide set and sometimes slide off my shoulders.
Other issue: the underband is permanently 'rolled' outward under the cups, which feels uncomfortable during wear. At first I thought washing it would help; with some manual manipulation to re-structure and un-roll the underband while drying it - but that sadly hasn't helped.
As -to my own surprise- I actually didn't own any pink bras, I will definitely keep this and will probably get more wear out of her in spring/summer.
But for now, it's not the super comfy quarantine bra that I was looking for - which may be reasonable as after all, Panache is known for pretty hard wires.
So, I will probably stick with bralettes for slouchy couch days (;

Bought used, so probably some extra stretch in band

The Envy is another staple for me, just like the Jasmine, because of the stretch lace at the top of the cup. I feel like this forgives so many different difficult shapes to fit. I have this one in a cute cotton candy pink which I love! It's so cheery. A supportive, sturdy, staple in my bra wardrobe.

Received this bra from a user here on bratabase. It is a nice shape for me. It's also the best fitting bra I've tried so far. It feels pretty much like I've got effortless support. Gore tacks, cup width is good, wires don't poke. Just the right amount of coverage and immediate projection. The straps are almost too wide, but they are staying on without too much strap tightening. I know panache has the reputation with the firm wires, but they don't seem uncomfortable to me.
Only issue is the left cup is wrinkling at the bottom front by the gore. It's almost like the lace layers are misaligned. I padded out that side and it seems to be better, so assuming that's just my asymmetry. Haven't seen quite this result before.
Me: short & narrow roots, center full, close set, pendulous, petite, short waisted, low set

This was one of the 8 bras I tried in my first Amazon Prime Wardrobe Box! (Sadly, 8/8 did NOT fit)
Whoa, I had NO IDEA how long the wires in these bras would be. I had some serious wide/poking into my armpits issues with this one. Keep that in mind if you're thinking of ordering this!
The pink color (which is what I ordered) was really pretty.

Cute bra, and it fit well when it did, but now it's too small and I quad out.

Coming from someone who rarely wears unlined bras because I have trouble getting a rounded shape in them, this is an awesome bra! I like that the bottom portion of the cups is made of a relatively rigid fabric that provides good support, while still looking lacy. This is one of the few unlined bras that has ever given me a shape I was happy with. Unfortunately my size/shape has changed recently such that I no longer fill the top, and the lace wrinkles/gapes. But it's a beautiful bra, and the color is great.
