I tried this bra after doing some blog surfing and seeing it recommended for Full on Top boobs. I often have issues with bras with these kinds of seams. I often look pointy (downward pointy - the worst kind) and have quad-boob issues. Not a flattering look under clothes. I was thrilled when I saw the shape this bra gave me! Nice and rounded, well lifted and firmly held in place. The stretch lace is great for full on top boobs, and is also helpful for asymmetry issues. The band is a bit snug, but not enough for me to warrant going up a size, nor did I ... need to use an extender the first time I wore it (I keep reading that it will stretch, so I'm not concerned). I ended up wearing it for 18+ hours the first time I wore it - through a full day of work, errands and later, lounging on the couch. My husband was cracking up as I kept lifting my shirt and saying, "I can't believe how comfortable it is and how nice they look!" The only issue I had was a slight bulging on my larger boob, right above the seam where the lace attaches to the bottom part of the cup. This is probably not noticeable to anyone else, and I'm thinking after a few wears and washes, that it may diminish a bit. Straps are comfortable and sit nicely on my fairly narrow shoulders. It is not a bra for a plunging neckline, but it's a good practical, yet attractive bra for every day wear. I have the nude color and I'm looking forward to purchasing this bra in black.

The Envy gives a perfectly rounded shape! The elastic band crosses over itself under the gore, so it is very, very tight, I'd say only slightly more stretch than Masquerade bras. I have found after a few wears it has opened up nicely, so I would probably recommend getting your normal band size, and an extender to help break it in. I really, really love this bra, I have it in both color ways and I have my fingers crossed for more this spring! Envy is less projected in the center than the Jasmine, so if you need a lot of projection/have very firm tissue, be wary that it might be too shallow for you. I am projected, but also very soft tissue so my breasts conform to the cup shape very easily.

I like this bra because it's the closest I've found to my shape. However, I'm not the biggest fan of Panache bras as they stretch out easily. I have this one in another color and it has stretched a lot in just a few months of wear. It also isn't the most supportive for my heavy breasts. I do absolutely love the stretch lace and wide shoulder straps.

This bra’s band runs very tight. I wish it had a little more immediate projection as I have some wrinkling in bottom of cup but not a deal breaker. I have a little strap gap but not much. Will probably sister size up for better comfort in the band.

I love this bra! It's one of the best fits I've ever had.

Scratchy at the beginning, and definitely made in China. I'd rather pay three times the price (or more) for something that fit equally well but is made more slowly in a place with guaranteed fair labor.

Measured on tightest hook:Buy narrower underwire and band size, closer set straps +/-

The lace feels like it was starched a lot, even after washing it a few times. It gives my left boob a very odd shape that no one really notices except me (looking down from above).

So, this is a really tight 32 - really, it's better for a 30 who likes it less tight. It was one of my first Panache bras, and I hadn't been aware that the brand really needs to be +2 on most of it's bra. The cup size is off, but not by too much, so I can say the basic shape fits me all right.
However, aside from that, I'm not sure I'll rebuy in a different size - the fabric isn't very soft. It's not itchy, but I didn't look forward to wearing it very much, and I was always glad to take it off at the end of the day. I would definitely see if the purple or black colorways are more comfortable.

I have this bra in a 32H in black also. (This one is beige.)
The smaller cup looks better on my chest, but there is a decided strain on the lace on my larger side; I think it will reduce the longevity of the bra at the intersection of the cup and strap. Still, the style is more balconnet than full coverage so it's prettier on than the Andorra.
Oddly, the wires on this one seem wider than the black one. I expected the band to be looser, which it is, because of that whole weird black colorway thing that makes no sense but is nonetheless true. But the ... band is still fine, it's just that the back of the wires interacts poorly with my upper ribs and underarm area. This reminds me of the Andorra with less coverage. I will bend the tips of the wires out a bit to see if that improves the issue.
The gore is lowish and comfy, unlike the Andorra.
Lift is better, support is very good/similar.
Nice and flat under clothing. Thinnish straps are nice for summer. 3 hooks in back. Beige color is a good nude for fair skin
Update: This bra is "fine" for about 8 hours, then the band under the cups starts to dig into my chest. This is probably, in part at least, due to the cups being pushed down because they're a tad too small - or maybe it's because I mostly sit at work. I don't care for the look of the houndstooth/lace mix, or the width of the straps; I think the Ariza spoiled me.
