    To start: my breasts are pendulous, soft tissue, short but wide roots, a splayed but somewhat close together, with a downward facing apex.

    I'm not entirely used to wearing a 36 band (formerly a 42), but I was shocked by how comfortable it is! The material is stretchy without misshaping, and the wires have good flex without being deformed by the stretch. They snap back nicely. The internal seams are nice and smooth and after about 10 mins I'm not even aware that I'm wearing a seamed bra. (I'm only aware at all because I'm really conscious of seams.) It's not 100% as smooth as a moulded cup looks ... through a shirt, but as long as the shirt isn't very thin or clingy, it should go pretty well. The stretchy lace at the top of the cup forgives all manner of sins, and since I'm fairly even (as far as I know), it's great.

    One thing I love especially is that the lace is not scratchy at all, and the bow between the cups is sewn on in the right place that it never pokes at you. The lace edge at the bottom of the gore and along part of the bottom of the cups is soft too!

    To top it all off, when I showed my fiancé he was... Um, impressed? It's a very sexy bra, while being comfortable, and with out me hanging out all over. I was so afraid to make the jump to properly sized bras because I had the idea that "big" bras were all ugly cone-boob monstrosities.

    Panache really got it right with the Panache Envy Balconnet Bra (7285) .

    • My husband really liked my Envy, in black! Unfortunately the wires push down on me and end up very painful after about 6 hours. I hope this keeps working well for you!

    • dbmamaz I hope so too! I wore it for couple hours yesterday, and it was still great, but time will tell. Especially if/when things migrate.

    • I think the Envy is a really comfortable bra. Also - it really holds up after a lot of wears. Mine that I have had for about 6 months still looks brand new.

    I knew this bra came in a soft cup, but I had read reviews and had seen pictures of actual people wearing it. I was very satisfied how sexy it looked apart from how comfortable people said it was, and everyone would mention that it gave the most perfect round shape on the side view. I was sold. Once it arrived I put it on and instantly my breast were unhappy looking. The cup made my breast look cone-like, and it was a very pointy projection. I am trying to aim for round, as it pleases me more and they don't stand out more than they have too. As I still don't know my correct bra size it was more of a trial and error.

    • are you more full-on-bottom? Sometimes when bras that look round on some people look pointy on other people, its because the bra is too full-on-top. I've seen that on several bras that fit me well, people who are FOB say it looks pointy when it totally does not on me.

    • dbmamaz yes I think I'm more full on bottom. I think it's mostly the style of bra that doesn't work for me. Which it's a shame it looks beautiful.

    • The andorra gives me more of a 'natural' not quite pointy but not softball rounded shape, the envy is more rounded but not totally - I think it's because my boobs are even fullness, and tissue spread over so much of my upper torso. I like both because of the stretchy upper cup - it doesn't try to cut my boobs down the middle or make them try to escape the cups everywhere they can but especially at the top and over the sides.
      My envy is starting to look like the wire on one side is going to pop through the fabric and jab me in the armpit, the channels are just big enough for the wires to move around in them and I'm afraid that stitching them smaller or shorter will make the problem worse with friction and everything...I might have to retire it. (sigh).
