This bra is very lightweight but has some serious architecture inside. The outer cup fabric is soft stretch lace. The bottom and outer top part of the cups are lined with a translucent non-stretch tricot fabric that provides excellent structure and support. The band has a side seam but no boning. From the cup to the side seam it is the same tricot inner/lace outer fabric. The back is firm stretch mesh covered with the same stretch lace. The straps sit wide in front but it's a leotard back so no problems with falling straps even on my narrow shoulders. The sides and gore are quite tall but ...are still comfortable for me. The wires seem thinner than the ones on some of the other Panache bras I've tried.
The Latte colorway is a light buff nude that is flattering to me. I like that there are no extra decorations. The lace, rose gold toned hardware, and shape of the bra stand on their own. The only thing I can knock this for is the horizontal cup seam is thick and shows under thinner knits. Still, it's a very nice bra and definitely will find a place in my wardrobe.

Fits well in band. A little wrinkled in cups but seems to settle out eventually after I wear it a bit. Good shape and projection. Gets the girls up front and also deals well with the fact I have shallow boobs. Wore it with an extender for maybe a week and then it was good.
ohh geeeez! this bra is so comfy!!! I cant even feel the wires on my body. The band is on the loose side as I can close very easily on the second set of hooks and probably on the third as well. The bra is really well made, but its just not my style. The top of cups digs into my boobs and the bra gives me a weird shape that doesnt work with me. Straps are just perfect (I wish that EM makes that narrow straps..), Overall Id love this bra if not the shape, but im planning now to try the plunge version when ill have a chance : )
Good fit. Comfortable, with medium support. Lace is smooth under knit tops, but seams are slightly visible. Mild downward-pointing shape. Partial side slings create odd tiered shape when viewed from above.
This fits pretty well. The mesh sling on the inside of the cup squashes my side boobs a little bit; not so noticeable with clothes on, but I can see the slight indentation myself. The gore tacks and stays put all day long, the top elastic has enough give, and overall the bra is comfortable to wear all day long. It puts the twins all up front and gives a nice rounded appearance.
This band is a smidge too big -- I can put it on the middle hooks already. I could probably use a 34JJ but wasn't able to try one on. A 36HH almost fit, but cut across the top slightly. I like the shape it gives me, and it's quite comfortable.
This is the "blossom" pink color, measures the same as the nude version I have, and the color kind of 'grows' on you - at least it did for me, since I wasn't thrilled when it came out of the box but I love this Panache model even though they discontinued it!
This bra fits, but I can't quite figure out what is wrong with it. I think it is too wide and shallow for my shape. It doesn't give me the shape I prefer. It is unfortunate because I love how simple it is and how likely it would be to disappear under a t-shirt. It does have a little bit of a gap at the top of one of the cups that could easily be fixed with a tiny tuck, however, I just recently acquired a Cleo Marcie 30FF that fits SO MUCH better! It too required a tiny (¼") tuck at the apex (at least for my preference), but it is narrower and projects more (like my breasts). I think I am finally figuring out what I need!
