    My shape: mid-height front-facing teardrop-profile (ski jump with no "jump") with tall shallow roots, low apex, lots of immediate projection underneath but moderate overall projection, wide roots with lots of side fullness and shallow tails that wrap all the way to the shoulder blade, extremely close-set center tissue (possibly a trace of natural symmastia), and very firm self-supporting tissue that when pushed out of shape will push right back.

    This bra was one of 5 Panache Jasmines I bought to try from Nordstrom. I also tried a 30FF - Panache » Jasmine Balconnet Bra (6951) in black, a 30F - Panache » Jasmine ... Balconnet Bra (6951) in nude, a 30F in black, and a 30FF in navy houndstooth.

    Oh, Jasmine, I was hoping at least one of you would work. Oh, well. This one is a pale nude color that is nice enough on my skin, although it's a bit on the beige side and might be better with olive tones.

    The 30 band is perfect on the loosest hook (measuring snug 72/BTT 66.5 cm today). I'd say it runs between slightly tight and true-to-size, because I need 28s in Freyas (which are stretchy) but also lots of other Panache and Cleos.

    The wings are tall, which I like, and the wires are wide enough and sit comfortably. In combination these keep my root tails in check, and they are not the tallest I've had, although they might be too high in the armpit for very sensitive people.

    The cups are where the problems are, though, and there are lots: too projected overall, top panel has too much space but closes too soon, apex is too high, not enough immediate depth at the base OR at the center gore. I think the cups are also a half-size too large today, too, but it's hard to tell with the rest of the issues; they seem roomier than the 30FF in black, though.

    Man, this gore. Stab-city. There's no space to shift the wires in the channels, either. No thanks. It has an unusual shape and flares out more from top-to-bottom than most, and mirrors my own IMF shape pretty closely, though, for what it's worth.

    When will people learn that small band/large cup people are not 2-dimensional? My shoulders and my ribcage are not wide enough for these straps, and they cut into my armpits and make the cup issues worse whenever I'm not perfectly still and stiffly upright. The straps aren't even broad enough to be really comfy (although they aren't especially UNcomfortable on me, since my tissue is mostly self-supporting). I'm used to it from Freya, but this is annoying!

    The good:

    30 band on the loosest hook fits great (snug 72/BTT 66.5 cm today). Wings are tall and wires are wide enough, keeping my root tails snug, although they might be too high for very-sensitive people. The gore is also an unusual shape and flares out a lot toward the bottom, mirroring my own IMF surprisingly closely. The cups seem slightly smaller than the nude version in this size.

    The bad:

    The gore, in spite of its convenient shape, is tall and stabby. The straps are way too far apart and cut in, and they aren't even wide enough to be pleasant and comfy to make up for it. The cups are ALL wrong, too, with too much overall projection, not enough immediate projection at the base of the cup or the gore, too high at the apex, and the top panel is too roomy and closes too soon. I can't tell if they're a size to large or not.

    Nope.

    At 30:9, this is the one Panache 30:8 I have left that doesn't stab my breast tissue with the gore.

    The stretch lace is fantastic for accommodating size fluctuations.

    Not enough projection for me, and the straps are too wide. Otherwise, the fit is good and can fill out the cups. However, it look is pointy, which I'm not a fan of.

    Fit Issue: While the band is one size too small for comfort, this bra just would NOT stay in my IMF. I have projected breasts and this bra had nothing in the bottom (see my finger? there's no breast tissue under there!). Not sure if this is a band, wire, or cup issue, but it made the bra a no-go.

    So... I suppose I shouldn't judge a bra on its first try-on because, surprisingly, Jasmine has grown on me!

    Right out of the package, I was disenchanted with the rough, nearly-scratchy material that constructs the cups. It felt cheap & thin which, for the retail price, was disappointing. Trying it on for the first time, I immediately noticed that the gore dug in REALLY hard. The wires in general are incredibly stiff, & I dreaded the idea of readjusting the underwires so that it didn't jab into my ribs & sternum all day long. I seriously considered returning Jasmine to Amazon, but alas, out of laziness I threw it ... in the back of my dresser & promptly forgot about it for a couple months.

    While reorganizing my bras I rediscovered it & figured I would give it another shot because, why not? And I was pleasantly surprised! I found that the gore honestly wasn't painful after a couple minutes wear & the underwires didn't dig into my ribs throughout the day. I also decided that I really like the stretch lace in top of the cups! My breasts tend to grow & shrink along with my hormonal cycle, so having a bra that can comfortably accommodate my size during ANY day of the month is a huge plus. The stretch lace also accomodates for my assemty very well! There is a tiny bit of puckering along the seam where the cup meets the lace, but it's hardly noticeable.

    At first I wasn't crazy about the profile Jasmine gives me, & to be honest, the extremely projected & almost pointy look I get still isn't my favorite. However, under heavier shirts, the uplifted look is kinda nice. The straps adjust long enough for my torso & the bottom & center projection is decent. The wires are adequately narrow (as far as UK bras go, anyways).

    Ultimately, it isn't my favorite bra, but it definitely isn't bad! And although I am still unimpressed with the fabric, the houndstooth pattern is absolutely adorable! Admittedly, it's what drew me to Jasmine in the first place & it doesn't disappoint! It's nice to have a bit of a break from the frilly, flowery bras that overwhelm the market.

    My shape: mid-height, forward-facing, very close-set, super side-full teardrop (ski-jump with no jump, just a straight slope) with tall full-but-shallow upper roots, even vertical fullness, wide side roots, lots of immediate projection but average-to-small overall projection, and allover very firm tissue that doesn't easily take other shapes.

    This review is for the adorable houndstooth colorway. It is navy and white, not black and white as I first thought, and while I do like it anyway, the surprise combined with the transparent nature of the fabric (which changes the apparent color when wearing it) makes me like it less. Still cute, though! It only has the one organza bow at ... the center front, and I like the simplicity.

    To start, the 30 band on the loosest hooks was great, and today I measure a snug 72/BTT 66.5 cm. I tried it on upside down and backwards just to make sure because I need 28s in Freya and most of the Panache and Cleo I've had.

    The wires are pretty wide and hug most of my fullness well. The ever-troublesome shallow root tissue that starts at the front of my armpit and extends back to my shoulder blades in a flat curve (like the Nike swoosh) is disguised underneath the very tall wings, which might easily be too tall for some ladies, but which I like and had no trouble with.

    I don't think the Jasmine and I are going to work out shape-wise, though. For one, the cups have more overall projection than I need and the apex, which on these is right at the T seam with the lace, is way too tall for me. The immediate projection is great though - I felt supported and no wrinkles from too much, and no buckling or riding down from too little. The lace panel closes too quickly for me, which means that the bra anticipates a much shorter root and a more projected shape on top than I have. Some of this might be solved by sizing down to a 30F, or more likely a 30E, but then I'd lose my wire width in the bargain, and I think then the top edge of the lace panel would actually press in and cause some dramatic quad-boob.

    The center bridge/gore was probably the narrowest I've had from a cup this tall in a long while, but since I suspect I have a hint of natural symmastia, I think anything short of overlapping the wires will be a problem no matter what I try. The shape of the bridge is pretty close to my IMF in the center, which is usually not quite the same as the standard U-curve. It's extremely tall, though, and that is the other part of the issue: it's a full 2 cm higher than I usually tolerate, and at least 3 more than where comfort would actually dictate. The wires are pretty firm, too, and together that makes this a deal breaker, even apart from the other issues.

    The straps are narrow, which will be an issue for some ladies, but since my boobs are mostly self-supporting it doesn't bother me. They are quite far apart, though, about as bad as my 28G - Freya » Patsy Padded Half Cup Bra (1223) clones, and I can see them chafing a bit on a hot day.

    The bra is fine, simply doesn't fit on me at all. The straps are stiff and too wide set for me.

    After wearing Frederick of Hollywood Corset bras in 32F for years, this seemed like a much better fit. But the wires come up too high under my arms, and the gore digs into my sternum. It's not projected enough for me, and I really need a 28 band. I like my Cleo bras much better because this bra's wires are too wide.

    HAS BEEN UPDATED
    Pros: pretty shape, decent lift, classic elegance afforded by the grey/black leopard print with black lace and black satin-y straps. Nice materials that don't stretch excessively over time. Straps are 1/2", which is nice for my small frame (in the FF at least, can't speak to other cup sizes). The stretch lace on the top half of the cup perfectly accommodates my asymmetrical breasts (yay!).

    Cons: Straps are too wide for me (what else is new?). I get [GOT] some seriously uncomfortable chafing from the cups in the underarms [for the first few months] which makes [made] me want to take it off. In a molded cup ... like my Panache Idina moulded, this front-of-armpit digging isn't a big deal because the fabric squishes and is comfortable enough for all-day wear. However, the Jasmine has no stretch/squishiness to make it more comfortable in that area. I am disappointed by this bra, as it has been a big hit for so many. [UPDATE: irritation appears to have been due to arriving heavily starched - this chafing is now gone after several, I will emphasize again SEVERAL, washings. In retrospect, I wonder if soaking this puppy for a good long while in the sink would have helped. Don't know if that would tamper with its longevity.]

    This bra has a bit too much jiggle action for me - the stretch lace on this bra is the only thing that comfortably accommodates my PMS breast swelling every 1/5 weeks, but really it's less stable than I'd like for everyday wear (I don't particularly enjoy feeling my breasts jiggle around with every step when I walk, or having others see that). Most of the time it's not that big of a deal. I am glad I purchased.

    • Also, the wires on this feel so wide, I think they are going to eat me.

    Vertical side panel is too tight, so creates vertical indent half way between arm and apex. Top lace is very stretchy & comfortable. would be good choice for full on top shape. Center gore is quite high, if you don't like that, you won't like this!
