After searching for a bra with the perfect fit, I finally found it! I am so happy, because I don't experience any poking or digging in (unless I let my posture slide!) and I fill out the cups perfectly. There is very little wrinkling and they fit me smoothly with no cutting in. I was wary of the lacy part at the tops of the cups, but it is't itchy at all and the rest of the bra is made out of a nice and silky material.
The quality is really good (at least, from what I have seen of bras) and the overall design is ...incredibly gorgeous and sexy. I just wish that this bra came in more colors, because I definitely want to get more! I don't feel like I am being strapped into some sort of boulder-holder because the straps are reasonably narrow.
Unlike the Freya Rio and the Panache Tango II balconette, the cups do not come up nearly as high, which suits my shape quite well. Too much material at the top of the cup means that I get unwanted wrinkles when the rest of the cup is perfectly filled out. This bra works much better for my low cut tops and I was even brave enough to wear it under a light tanktop without any peeking or seam/lace show-through.
This is my favorite bra so far!
Measurements for this bra (and my other 28Gs) will be coming as soon as I can get the time to properly measure them all! Read more 151 more words
Awesome, beautiful bra. But sadly completely the wrong shape for me. I need narrow&deep cups, this bra has wide&shallow cups. Oh, and the wires are so high on me that they poke. Band is still super tight on me even though I got it as giveaway as a very much worn bra. While I absolutely need 32 bands in some brands (Fantasie, Elomi), I need 34s in Panache it seems!
It's still beautiful! And with an altered center gore the fit is better already so I can totally wear this for now.
I tried this bra on in a couple of sizes and colours (weight loss/gain etc) (30D, 30DD and 28DD) and it was always a pleasure https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
It's a very nice and comfy everyday bra. The fabric is smooth and soft.
I wouldn't wear it to go out in the evening because there are other bras that add a bit more "wawawoom" to your outfit https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> but I really like this one for work. The wires don't poke, the shape is nice (not superb, but nice), the quality is really good and neither does the fabric wash-out nor did the band stretch a lot.
So: Great everyday bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
FYI: Cup depth is 8.5", not 9.1" This bra runs scant in the cups.
This fits great when I weigh less, the cups fit better and they give a nice rounded shape. The problem I have with it (and most of Panache's other bras as well) is that the cups are placed too far apart and they are very shallow at the top of the cup. The band fits good on this one and the material feels soft and comfortable. But for me it has a minimizing effect because of the tops of the cups being shaped too small. Also, as with most of Panache bras, with the exception of the Inferno, they make my breasts point down and out...As you can see in the side shot of this one.
This bra is like dress up for me it is so big! I actually really like this chocolate! I think the wires are really rather long and even if the cups weren't too large I still don't think this bra would be for me do to the length of these wires! They also wrapped around farther on my body than any others.
Im also coming to terms with the fact that any bras that have this lace upper part are not for me.
Cups also appear rather shallow when I am holding them up.
Also it is a band less band, which I'm not a huge fan of even though I thought they were supposed to be good with high tummies.
Overall wouldn't buy another one of these in the right size even.
This bra was transferred from another user to me for testing.
What is going on with this bra?
The wires are so massively wide that my boob sits in the middle of the cup, well supported...but the bottom has several inches of empty space that causes the cups to act as part of the band and thus a lot of cup and depth get wasted.
The band is a bit too tight for my liking but this may be due to the hard underwires acting as a large part of the band.
The bra feels kind of soft and silky and that's nice. The gore isn't too bad as ...it isn't too high and only sits about 1.5 cm away from the center but it is way too wide for close-set breasts.
But what the hell Panache? Do you really even test these bras on more than one woman? Do you test them at all? I can't see this fitting mostly anyone well besides perhaps someone with very bottom heavy breasts that are wide apart with a wide root. And even then, I doubt she'd be comfortable.
The bra feels fine for about 5 minutes before becoming one of Panache's famous torture devices. Panache needs to go back to the drawing board on this poor attempt at cashing in on larger sizes. Read more 111 more words
I'm really not quite sure what I can say about this bra. I guess I can start off with some facts about it. Harmony is a 3-piece balconnet with the two lower sections made of opaque material and the top section made of a sheer fabric with embroidered decoration. The straps are partially adjustable and its fastening has 3 rows of 3 columns of hooks. The bra is unbanded- the band doesn't continue through the gore.
I got this from another bratabaser, and it's a size larger than I would usually get in bras, but I feel like I can comment on some of the unusual features of the ...fit. This is a big bra. I feel like it's larger than I would expect, comparing it to the fit of other bras I have tried around the 30K and 32K mark. The wires are very, very wide. So wide that they wrap around to the flat of my back. I measure at 64.5cm as tight as possible, and like bands to be at about 68cm (27" ) stretched length to be comfortable, so I am a little smaller than the bra has been made for, but I feel like even with a 30" ribcage, the wires would be inappropriately wide.
The base of the cups is very shallow, and the curve of the wires is also shallow, meaning that I have a lot of empty space in the bottom of the cups. The straps are very wide-set, so they don't stay on my shoulders unless I angle them in, and they don't adjust to be short enough for my high-set breasts and small frame. Somehow, there's still not quite enough room in the top centre of the bra for my breasts, and I spill out a little there, or at least feel very ill contained.
I could in theory try a size down, but I feel like this bra is pretty much the reverse of what I need. I need very deep, narrow, short cups with straps which are close-set and allow me to wear the bra high on my chest. Harmony has very shallow, wide, tall cups with wide-set straps.
The material is lovely and soft, and I feel like in sizes where pattern scaling is not so much of an issue, this bra could be quite wearable. The straps also are thick and comfortable on my shoulders- they don't twist up or cut in.
If for some reason, you have a very wide root, with shallow, tall breasts which aren't too high on your chest and wide shoulders, Harmony in 30KK could be good for you. If you don't have this combination of features, the bra in this size may be worth a miss. Read more 344 more words
This is for the chocolate colored Harmony. This bra is a regular in my rotation. The band is nice and firm, and the straps are fully adjustable (always a good thing). The cups are fairly wide but shallow, which gives a nice close but rounded profile. It’s actually still pretty nice under a t-shirt for a soft cup bra. The center gore is fairly wide for me, but taking it in made the bra fit infinitely better. It’s a great comfortable, basic bra, and would definitely grab another if I ran across one online somewhere.
I have the Harmony in chocolate brown and it's very smooth, silky and generally very beautiful. It also covers my nipples (a BIG plus! I have a problem with most bras with sheer upper parts giving me nip slip) and the band is probably the best-fitting bra band I have ever tried on, meaning that it would be a slightly snug 28. It was even a little *too* snug at the end of the day. The bra fits like second skin and only gapes a little when I breathe out (the sheer part at the top is quite stretchy). The straps are semi-adjustable but adjust long enough.
I ...think the cups run a bit too large.
The underwires are quite wide and end up in my armpits, and even though they don't poke, the edges of the bra rub in. It gets a little better after a few days' worth of wearing, but not much. I'm hoping that the bra will "break in" after a while.
The center gore is rather wide. At first I though it was okay, as it doesn't go up too high, but then I narrowed it by sewing it together - lo and behold, the gore suddenly settled between my boobs properly. So, this bra is better for people with breasts further apart.
The support is AMAZING. Truly awesome. I can run around, jump, bend forward, wiggle around, just about anything, and the boobs stay in place, strapped in tightly and comfortably. The uplift and shape is okay, not the best ever, but manageable, making this my no. 1 everyday basic (next to the Freya Pollyanna).
My main problem with the Harmony is how it looks on me without clothes on. The first thing I thought after looking in the mirror was "Wow, I forgot how huge my boobs can look." It's not as if the Harmony pushed the breasts up or anything, but after wearing a lot of bras which minimised the look of my chest (I'm looking at you, Rococo Charm! and you, Panache Confetti!), the arrival of a dark brown balconette which covered more than half of my boobs was a bit of a shock. I felt rather self-conscious in it, but after wearing it all day and realizing how comfortable it was, this slight drawback was forgiven.
If I were to buy this bra again, I'd probably choose a nude version for everyday wear. I'd also try a 28H on, just to be spared the nagging feeling on "what if" https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
EDIT: Okay, this definitely needs to be worn under at least one stretchy/tight-ish layer - the lace shows through and bunches under looser clothing, creatine a very visible line https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 349 more words
