Best fit for me so far in Panache (I've tried almost 50 bras, including Panache & Cleo's in the last 2 months - I'm dead serious about finding a good bra!) but greatly lacking in comfort and only moderately rounded for my shape.
I vary b/t 28 & 30, the band was loose enough to wear on the 3rd hook right out of the box.
Had some firsts -
1) band beneath the wires constantly folded under and chafed my skin -
2) rigid, fully adjustable straps were painful, chafing & dug in from the start, despite reasonable support from the band!
Very strange. By far the most ... uncomfortable Panache bra I've tried. Oddly, the pink version, which I tried in a 30H, didn't have any of these issues, so maybe it's just this one bra? Or the black colorway? I may try the 28JJ in PINK....
The cup shape is decent for FoT's like me, but only gave a rounded shape when I fully scooped & swooped and pulled the elastic lace up and over the tops of my breasts. After walking around a bit, the lace retreated back down the cups, giving that oh-so-desirable elf slipper/quaddy look. Boo. If I do go a band size down and a cup size up, I'm pretty concerned that the wires will widen, and this bra was already on the edge of too wide for me.
So appreciate any advice re: this bra, and sizing down the band & up the cup - I'm pretty desperate.
Also, I've noticed that no matter how well I fill or overfill the cups on most bras, I still have a gap where the strap meets the cup - Is this due to my very narrow shoulders or is this a "root" thing? (Haven't quite figured out the whole root thing yet.. I also feel like my boobs & bra should sit a couple of inches higher than they do...like the underwire should be sitting higher even when it's tight enough... )
Maybe I should open a fitting request.... lol

I really like the shape this bra gives me. The band feels snug and the stretch lace is a great help fitting my bigger side more comfortably. My only compliant is I think either the straps are too wide or the cup fabric too high as it dogs uncomfortably into my arm.

I love this bra! The shape is very flattering - centered and rounded. It pulls my breasts in and away from my armpits. It's very supportive.

This is the tightest bra band I've tried ever - it's misery without an extender. I have the 32H as well, and that band, while also firm, stretches a bit more reasonably.
Did I mention this bra is misery without an extender?
I originally ordered this in a 30H. I had some overflow in front and some indention along the seam line at the lace, and so I thought I needed a larger cup, and that it must run small.
I realize now that because the band is so tight that it stretches the underwires wider than it should, pulling the cups too tightly in the front and making them appear smaller than they are. Once I started wearing this with an extender, I realized the HH is larger on me than it should be - but interestingly, the stretch lace still makes it wearable (or perhaps, I ideally need an H.5?)
So, advice - if you're between band sizes even just a smidge, I'd order up.

Very comfortable bra. Do not feel any need to readjust. It fits slightly tighter on my bigger boobie but nothing too major and nothing to worry about since it's not noticeable. Since its not a big size difference, I much rather accommodate the smaller boob than the bigger one, thanks to the stretchy fabric. Since the other way around just give me an odd shape.

The floral print with the purple lace is really pretty, though I was disappointed that the back is plain white.

My new favorite bra! This is a forward projection bra but is not too pointy, I still get a decent round shape. The wires under the arm are not too tall witch is something I worry about sometimes, as well as the center gore seems to be placed just right. The lace at the top makes this bra great for FoT breasts, If it was not so stretchy I would have had to try a J cup and had to deal with the wires going too far back because I am very central with some fullness on top.
Support A, shape A, comfort A+
I would recommend this bra to anyone!
