Another boob hug bra!
I need the second or third hook on this bra, but it's lovely anyway!
I love the fabric and feel like this is the 'green' shape equivalent to the Panache Andorra. It is less full coverage-y than the Andorra and can accommodate more fullness on top, if you need it. Seriously, if this bra came in a 28 band I would buy all the colorways! I think it might run 1/2 to a full cup large, because I'm usually a 28F and the cups very fit nicely.
The only tiny problem (like usual) is that the gore is slightly too wide causing a slightly uncomfortable feel and prolonged red marks where is sits on very shallow breast tissue. This happens in every full-cup bra I own, even Comexim. It's not really a big deal, just something to mention. I always count a bra as fitting if that's the only problem, because I would need narrow, overlapping wires in order for the to be fixed - and there are only very few bras that do that.

This is my second attempt at Jasmine, as I tried it back when I was a 28DD/30D, and it didn't work for me in that size. I decided to give it another chance in my current sister size of 30DD, but unfortunately it's still not right. I've realized that Jasmine is really designed for FOT shapes, and for this reason, it will never fit me properly, which is sad because this is a very comfortable and lightweight summer bra that gives great shape.
The band is made from firm powermesh with a leotard back. I remember thinking that the band of the 30D I tried was ... way too stretchy, but the 30DD actually measures with a larger band and I felt the band was fine. I'm not sure if the stretch is different between the solid Black 30D and the printed Confetti 30DD since I don't stretch my bra bands for measurements, but it could just be that I fill out the cups better in this size. Though the body fabric is printed, the band is actually solid pink on this colorway. I actually found the band on this bra to be on the firmer side and rather comfortable, though historically Panache 30 bands tend to run large on me.
The cups on this bra fit well in the wire and bottom of the cup, but the problem is that I am not full enough on top to fill out the center of the cup and the lace upper. Whenever I move, the lace upper wrinkles terribly. I had a similar problem with Thea and Olivia recently in the 30DD, as those styles are also designed for FOT. I believe the cut is similar to Envy based on comparing the measurements, but is fuller on top than Envy. I have Envy in 30D and it still fits me, but it also fit me when I was a size smaller when Jasmine in the same size did not. So, if Jasmine doesn't work out for you for the same issues that I had, give Envy a try.
It's such a shame about the upper cup, because I really like the fit of the wires and bottom of the cup. The fabric here is super lightweight printed tricot with a lightweight tricot backed lining. Thea is similar but the fabric is denser and firmer, so it is slightly more supportive. It gives me a really nice rounded appearance, and despite having a a 4 piece cup construction similar to the Fantasie Side Support Styles, it gives me a much more rounded shape that I enjoy.
Confetti is actually a multicolored flower print on a pale pink base, and is quite pretty. The upper cup is stretch floral lace, and sadly this is the only part of the cup that gives me trouble. The cradle is the same printed fabric as the cups, and the straps are solid pink satin with an interesting edging. The only decoration is a small two toned bow at the center gore.
I can see why people love Jasmine, as she is comfortable, lightweight, and supportive. It's too bad that the cut is too FOT for me, so I'll have to stick with Envy for a similar effect. If you like Jasmine, I would also check out Thea and Olivia as they are similar but are 3 piece cups with no side sling.

Thin but strong mesh fabric seems like it would be really durable. It feels light and cool. The multi-part cup construction is good for projected shape but I couldn't feel the seams. I was impressed with how well this bra hides prominent nipples despite the thin fabric. I thought I would be stuck wearing thicker bras forever. If it fit better it would probably be fairly smooth under thicker weight knits but maybe not tee-shirts. Unfortunately the wires on this bra are too wide for me.

This is one of my best fitting bras, but I'm somewhere between a 30E (just too big in the upper part) and 30DD. I am technically all in and there aren't any major fit issues in the 30DD, but I just feel like it's a little tight. Maybe I should try a 32D?? I don't know that I really need all the depth this bra has; most brands don't work for me in 30DD, so I'm guessing that's why this smaller size works (the fact that it's so deep). I love the stretch lace. Panache is just such good quality! Kinda want some other colors besides the bland but undetectable-under-clothes nude color.

This bra is magical. I'm 15 weeks pregnant and measuring 30F at the moment, but this 30DD is still so comfortable. Everything is contained in the cups without any quadding because of the stretchy lace at the tops. Unlike most of the 30Fs I own, the straps actually stay on my shoulders and the cup width matches my root (less than 5 inches!! But it still has decent depth!). It feels very tight, but in a contained, secure way. I keep forgetting I'm even wearing a bra, which is always a good sign.

Cute bra, pointy boobs. I like the material and stretch lace, it is comfortable and not itchy. I don't like the sturdy panache wires. Weirdly enough I'm having center gore issues with the panache Clara, but not with this bra. Maybe because it is more projected? I don't fill the front top of the cups entirely, but the stretch lace closes nicely, so I consider this a fit!

This bra runs true to size for a 30DD in my opinion, and would be best suited for even to FOT shapes. It has stretch lace on the top of the cups, which should allow for some flexibility in size/shape. Unfortunately, being FOB I cannot fill the stretch lace, particularly on the smaller side. So it's off to find a new home https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

This black floral colorway seems pretty true to size for a 30DD. Just a touch small for me. The Jasmine measurements make it seem I could wear 30DD or 30E depending on which color.
It is just a touch too small in the bottom of the cup for me. The side panels cut in and flatten my tissue. The top of the cups with the stretch lace is so forgiving though. Can't wait to try a 28F or 30E.

Did not fit well at all. Did not feel like I had any support.

This is my "comfy, chilling at the weekend" bra. After living in my Decos/Maddies all working week, I like to have something that feels a bit less like armour for the weekend. Also was thinking it might be cooler in a non-moulded/padded bra, so wanted to investigate some options. I started off with a 30E Jasmine in the white floral print with dark red lace, and although it was gorgeous, it was far too deep for me. I found the black/multi oriental print (AW 2012 or 13?) on ebay in a 30DD and although I was worried the wires would be too narrow, nabbed it and prayed! The ... wires are surprisingly perfect for me, and overall it's a good fit. Band is what I consider a "normal" 30 size-wise and straps are quite wide which I like. Although the top half of the cups (the lace part) fit with no gaping, they could easily accommodate someone who is far fuller on top than me due to their stretchiness.
Very comfy bra, beautiful print. Only (tiny!) gripe is I wish the band was slightly wider, but this is just personal preference - it is comfortable and supportive enough as it is.
Lovely matching knickers too.
