Such a lovely print! Beautiful flowers in petrol and purple, a really wintery design.
The good parts; Jasmine has soft felted straps, a firm band, 3 hooks (from GG cups), nice stretchy lace on top and very firm supportive fabric in the lower cups.
However, Jasmine does seem to be my Goldilocks bra?
Hard to find the perfect size!
I love my Animal Jasmine in 30GG, wear it a lot but it's somewhat small.
So I sized up in Ricamo, 30H - rubs my armpits and wrinkles in the bottom.
Bought a cheap older color (Navy floral) in 32GG to see if the tight band was the problem, but that one's ... almost unbearably chafey in my armpits.
Tried this new design in 32G (too flimsy & small), 32GG (too chafey) 30GG (this one) and 30H (same issues as Ricamo). Panache does seem to keep their fit pretty consistent in different Jasmine colorways. In the end I decided 30GG is best for me, but still not perfectly comfortable.. Kind of wide straps, some wire poking, band could be sliiightly looser. Not perfectly in my IMF (seems hard for me to get bras to stay there 😒) And I'm still not a fan of the mesh-like fabric that is somewhat scratchy. All not dealbreakers, but things I suppose they could improve on.
Maybe after first being SO impressed by Jasmine's gravity defying performance as an unlined bra, I'm also getting more critical these days.
Perhaps they could learn from Comexim and produce a Jasmine with straps moved in?
And use the 4x eye setting and supersoft fabrics from Ewa? 😁

This bra is the perfect shape and would be my forever bra if the gore was just a cm or two shorter. The band provides enough support and the cups tack beautifully on top. My only issue is that the gore can dig in a bit if I am too active.

Me: Narrow roots, narrow shoulders, evenly round, lots of immediate projection, very soft tissue, slightly FoB, slightly centre full, splayed, never met a gore I didn't like, left-heavey by more than a cup size, 31" underbust, but prefer tight band with extender. Panache, Freya size 30GG
So, as expected, too wide and shallow. I thought I would try Jasmine, having heard such good things. But it is a fairly close fit, so I won't discredit most of the reviews, just place it in a relative position. Narrower and more immediately projected than the rest of Panache, but not compared to my bust!
Cups are a little too wide and straps set slightly too far apart. I get some quading at my centre fullness, and the appex is too shallow - like a half cup. So, not enough immediate projection and a bit of an upsidedown seven shape.
Material is a bit stiff and the stretch lace top part is a bit too stretchy. Straps are narrower, only half adjustable, but scalloped. No side boning, but three hooks.

Technically fits. Doesn't Hurt! But not sure it helps, either:
This feels like I'm in opposite-land. It's not shallow-wide like I've found the Freya Fancies line but yeah. There's a similar lack of space here just as there was with that style.
Jasmine almost works as kind of a minimizer. I could hide all the boob with this one by how well it squishes down all projection, ... except the delicate upper band which almost magnifies jiggle from all my breast being mercilessly shoved UP UP AND AWAY!!! where there is no stability. A girls is short, and tired so you can image how much fun the inevitable oozing over, is.
Every other style I've tried has been a volume match in this size, however Jasmine's fit is comparatively small-wide, and appears I ought to have gone up yet ANOTHER cup! It's shape is very uh ... ramped UP vertically... like, to the gods... with minimal immediate projection, especially at the very center of cup where both sides are sewn together. Therefore it fits like a flattening cone on my large rounded short-busted profile. To accommodate any fullness it would need a re-draft with another central piece for lower breast like Ewa M's CHP, or a ton more curve for depth in the very front of the cups. The side support panel in this style is worth fuckall.
Most of the Jasmine's construction choices suggest it should hold in very heavy, compressible, loose tissue, pushing it all backwards into the chest wall (armpits, strap gap?).
The fit and actual shape of the cups appear to be made for fairly small, narrow, moderately lightweight tissue though. I'm pretty small + lightweight +super short breast height/functionally FOB in terms of cup size with extremely dense/heavier tissue, so the band, frame and bottom of cups feel almost supportive. But then the upper cup is really tight & frail letting 'everything hang out' so to speak. There's a LOT of horizontal crumpling from the lack of space in in the lower part of the cups, that Jasmine's very short straps are holding at bay.
Oh yes, the underwires are weirdly wide. Why! How? What.
Ultimately this leads to feeling that Jasmine has such a closed-in and stingy fit right from the wire and around all sides, that I'm not really sure how it earned the reputation for full-on- bottom depth that it has. Maybe a little more apex-only depth than average? Tango in the right size gave me somewhere to BE, Jasmine is just... Pushy for no reason. While the straps, band, and gore are comfortable without modification... I can feel the cups wanting to scoot toward my bellybutton postehaste, which gives me the unsettling sense that I'll need to adjust the EVERYTHING soon...
*Really* soon. Like within 15 seconds, soon. At all times.
Now- it actually doesn't scut off to the hinterlands despite lots of misgivings, most likely because there isn't any more strap to let out so it physically can't abandon post. Perhaps the only thing preventing a nip slip here and there, is an unholy alliance between wires and straps to make up for the lack of good support in the cup.
There's nothing wrong with the materials or construction but it comes off as rote, and missing some key features so Ima rate it MEH:
-Powermesh band is smooth, supportive and sturdy, no digging or itching from elastics or the tags.
-Armscye & wing are decent placement for my high set, supershort, extreme immediately projected, problematic side-full shape.
-Narrower than average gore lays flat. Unfortunately underwires sit over my breasts here so it's not narrow enough when paired with the shallowness in bottom of cup for the EVERY LIFT ON EARTH! patterning built into this style. But compared to a lot of designs there is nicer cup depth at the inner cup for center fullness, which is very appreciated. Considering that I've not much there, it's bothersome to me that this specific area is also Always squashed to hell and then some, so this will be fascinating to experience inner cup depth without an alteration. Less boob pushed out, for the gore to sit on!
-The lace upper band is cheap, flimsy, doesn't stay put, wrinkles up and feels like it will be easily damaged with regular use or by contact with anything on earth, anytime, anywhere. I base this on, that is exactly what happens within a week or so of owning anything that has this style of stretch lace.
-THREE HOOKS. God. Finally. Yes. Watch now that I've praised this 1 complete necessity, they will take the privilege away & replace with some stupid 1 hook strappy wonder.

Really loving the stretchy lace part on top of the cups.
Good 'every day' bra, basic but not 'too' basic. I like the leopard print! Some reviewers said this bra put their boobs up high and forward, I can see their point but to me, Jasmine almost seems a bit minimizing under clothes. That's quite ok though. For reference, I think my breasts have tall-ish roots and I seem to be mostly FOT (when wearing a bra). So Jasmine is a good option, being very friendly for upper fullness.
Have had this bra in my weekly roulation for over 6 months and it' s holding up nicely! No major stretching or loss of shape. Some tiny hooks or tears in the lace, hardly visible. I do always wash them by hand.
The 30GG seems borderline too small for me though. Some tendency to quad, camouflaged by the stretchiness. Still very wearable I think. Got this in Ricamo 30H as well, review yet to come.

So if you're like me and in between sizes, this bra will be great for you. I currently measure 29" underbust, and that's exactly how much this bra stretches too. I actually have to wear it on the tightest hook on most days though because I started it looser and it would slide down my chest not long after I put it on.
So far it's mostly comfy, but the bottom band rolls up under the bra, which is weird. Never ran into that before. I also found that the straps were much too long, but that with a bit of work, I managed to slide the clip ... over the thick strap and shorten it perfectly. Hooray.
It's very pretty and flattering on. It doesn't make me too projected, but I don't mind (in general, I prefer to be forward projected like I am in Ewa's and Comexim). I really like the burgundy lace-it's very soft and very pretty. Unlike any other similar laces, I found it to fit me perfectly. Usually they cut into the top of my breast (ahem, Cleo bras), but this one doesn't. Very happy with this bra.

I want so badly to love this bra. I like the pink paisley as a pattern, because it's a little fun, but also fairly neutral and doesn't show through light coloured clothes. The stretchy top of the cup is fantastic, and the shape is rounded and projected.
The centre gore digs in very badly (I don't know the cause of this, it doesn't feel particularly too high/low, it just feels like it wants to tack THROUGH my sternum) which is a problem I experience frequently in Panache and Cleo bras. The wires are just a touch too tall under the arm, so it's not comfortable for long periods of wear.

This is very tight so far in the band. i have only worn it 3 times, but it is most comfortable with one row of extender hooks at the moment.
The cup is fairly true to size, maybe a little bit generous. I think that i will choose the 30H next time, but the GG is okay.
