At first glance this looks just like the Fauve Emmanuelle. But upon closer comparison, they are very different. About the only things that are the same are the Black Lace over a Nude molded bra, rounded cup shape, tall wires and wide-set straps.
*The cups on the Fauve Emmanuelle are very open on top, have good projection at the wire, with the apex set right in the center. The cups of the Panache Idina are closed on top, have very little projection at the wire (high angle from the wire to the apex), with a very high apex (2" from the cup edge.
*The lace on ... the Emmanuelle is mostly smooth, but has little nubbies (which under a tight T-shirt look like tiny moles or zits!). The lace on the Idina is smooth with no nubbies to distort the appearance.
*The straps of both bras are wide-set (a pet-peeve of mine). Although the straps themselves on the Emmanuelle are much wider and more supportive. Both are fully adjustable...just barely enough!
*The gores are comparable. Except...the gore on the Idina is too tall on me and tries to fold over itself #1: to try to fit between my close-set shape, #2: to make more room on my fuller side.
*The bands on both bras feel true to size; the main difference between them being the Emmanuelle has lace overlaying the mesh band, and the Idina has double layer mesh.
*A nice addition on the Idina - it has a thin foam padding under the eyes portion of the hooks. Very comfortable!
*Rose gold hardware on the Idina. A nice accent.
