Jasmine and I did not always agree...our love story was one that was developed with time and patience! The first time I tried Jasmine, the seam where the top lace is inserted gaped a lot, resulting in a pointy shape, that made me quiver...we weren't meant to be then. But alas, luckily for me, with the "orchid print" things changed: the fitting of the 28F was phenomenal, light years away from my unpleasant previous experience!
Again, I'm headed back to try 28Es in Panache, as yet another 28F looks baggy, though I need to investigate whether cup depth and wire width would even be significantly different. If the problem is more about style and scale than size, perhaps I should just move on to other brands/styles. What I realy like about this bra is the pushing in from the sides effect, which I believe comes partly from the strap attaching to a vertical-only outer panel. I also get pretty good immediate projection in this bra compared to the others I've tried. However, I haven't figured out what to do with all the soft ...flesh that's now sitting top and center because the bottom of my breasts is projected up. It spills forward and give me too much center projection, too much pointiness, and a loose/jiggly feeling, and I suspect going a cup size down wouldn't fix the issue. My limited forays into immediate projection all seem to come at the expense of a nice center shape. I only wear unlined bras and strongly anything with even a hint of bullet...

I've only worn this bra once or twice since I bought it, but I do like it. I bought it at Secrets From Your Sister in Toronto, Ontario because it was on clearance, and therefore 50% off. It has a good firm band; the wires are a touch on the wide side for me, but it doesn't really bother me; the straps are a little wide set, but again it doesn't bother me too much; it gives a pointy shape due to the stiff laminated material of the bottom half (so I'll be wearing this with thicker sweaters or when I'm intentionally going for a pointy look); the ...stretch lace top is comfortable, but probably contributes to the pointy look; it's super projected (so I had to size down one cup); on a scale of 1-10 has a 6 or 7 in immediate projection at the wire (as far as I can tell); and the gore tacks on me, although I can see it being too wide for some people. It's definitely not the cutest bra ever, as I don't normally go for animal prints, but it's usually hidden anyway so whatever. Read more 85 more words
