    This bra gives a great shape and feels supportive. I am very short waisted with narrow, sloping shoulders, which means the sides of the bra dig in by my armpits and the straps are always on the cusp of falling down. The cups are quite wide for me (digging in if I lean over to pick something up). So close.........

    I wear this bra at least twice a week, but I have a love-hate relationship with it.

    When I got fitted at a local store (I told the whole saga in my review of 34GG - Panache » Clara Full Cup Bra (7255) ), they told me I was a 32HH in Panache bras. After some trial and error, I found the aforementioned Clara fit me well in a 34GG. I wanted to try the Envy I'd heard so many good things about, so I found a brand new 34GG Envy on eBay for cheap. I've actually had it for about 2 months, but I couldn't ... really bring myself to write the review until now.

    First, this particular bra was, at some point before I got it, professionally converted into a nursing bra. This is actually totally fine with me, as I'm still nursing my 2 kids (and this is why I wear it twice a week despite the issues described below), but I was a bit miffed that it wasn't in the description. However - the straps are too short now! I'm not sure what went wrong during the conversion process, I've converted many bras by hand and never lost that much strap length... but even with my super short torso I can't make the straps long enough. They're close, but I could use maybe 1" more.

    Next, there is an issue going on in the cups that I'm not 100% sure about. I think (and this is really just a guess) the cup might be too large. Now, the cup is filled perfectly, the stretch lace is flat across the top of my breast, it's all perfect... except the apex. It's like I get in-cup quadding, but only at a very specific spot at the seam junction/apex. Really it just makes giant wrinkles across my nipples. I'm sure the description sounds like the cup might just have more projection at the apex than my breast does, but it's not quite like that; it's very tough to describe. It almost looks like something is "off" with the tension in that spot, and for a few weeks I assumed it had something to do with the short strap/conversion issue. I do have a 34G Envy en route to me, so I should know within a few days if a smaller cup really helps this issue or not.

    I'm in the process of changing the sling part of the nursing bra conversion; the original conversion used beige cotton in a crescent shape sewn into the actual mesh at the edge of the cup, which was affecting the depth/projection I get there. I am replacing that sling with just a piece of elastic sewn into the edge of the underwire channel, as this is the kind of sling I prefer for my nursing bras and it will hopefully fix some of the strange shape issues I'm getting.

    I'll also say I'm a bit disappointed in the looks of this particular Panache bra. Now that I've found Bras That Fit, I find myself less willing to settle for bras I don't find beautiful, and I'm just not sold on this one. It's not a very pretty bra, to me, especially compared to my Panache Clara (linked above). The houndstooth pattern is too subtle and the floral is too matronly and the combo just looks like a hot mess to me. I'd overlook it if this gave me a great shape under clothes, but it doesn't, so at the moment the only reason I keep it around is to have an underwired nursing bra for the weekends.

    I've never tried on a soft cup before, I love the feel and freedom of it. I love how sexy it looks. I tried on the 36FF and i just looked disgusting in it. I also got the same style but in a size 34GG and it fit me way better than the 36FF. What I don't like is the shape I wanted a more round shape. I feel the side view is slightly pointy and I'm not a big fan of it. I wish it would of given me more of a lift it's what I desire the most in a bra, lift and support. I didn't ... feel either of these. Everytime I was busy doing something I had an urge to keep pulling at the lace because I felt my breast were too heavy and kept riding the lace/cup down. It gave me a slight, practically minimal, quadboob. The band looked like it was fine but I felt as if it moved. I would prefer it tighter, except I'll get back fat. The gore would sit flat on my sternum, if I did not move. Once I started moving it would ever so slightly move half and inch onto my right breast which is a tiny bit bigger. It wasn't uncomfortable but I've never had a gore ever never ever ever sit flat on my sternum. I don't even have closed set breasts, so I don't understand why it would do this. I'm guessing maybe the cups are a tad too small. Another thing I noticed was that the bottom of the cup was not fully filled with breast nor the sides. I'm assuming I don't have enough breast on my side to fill that out. This was purchased as a trial and error, since I'm still looking for my bra measurements.

    • i suggest doing a "fit request" with these pics :)
      then others can suggest bras that might fit more to you liking :)

      Do a fit request. I think there's probably a key fit factor you're still missing, especially if you still haven't been able to find a bra that at least tacks at the center--that suggests you're quite far off from optimal size and shape. I also think the Envy looks suspiciously unsupportive in your photos when that is not at all one of the typical issues for this bra in the correct size.

    Used to fit

    I finally got a chance to try this bra on a trip to Nordstrom. The bra is very comfortable and feels good on. The houndstooth print is subtle. The stretch lace on top is nice, but not as generous in stretch as the Jasmine.
    Eta: i ended up buying this bra; it gives me the best fit that I have gotten in a long time.
