I made peace with Jasmine https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
When I first put it on, the gore wouldn't lay flat, I couldn't tighten the straps short enough, the bra felt really uncomfortable, The wires dug in at the arpit and at the bottom, I couldn't pull the wires where they are supposed to be - I felt there is not enough space for my boobs around them, and the fabric of the cups gave me a rash on my right boob o.O
Now, this bra needs to be washed before you even try it on !!
Except for the rash, those were all basic problems I ... have with most my bras.
I managed to bend the wires to fit me comfortably, I even bent the gore to lay flat.
I realized that wih some fiddling I could shorten the straps even on the padded part.
Now Jasmine fits like a dream https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />))
Perfect, snug, back fat minimising, 3 hooks and quite sturdy
Too thin if you ask me. Nicely padded, you can adjust all the way with some playing around, but I don't think theye are ment to be fully adjustable.
They are narrower and shorter than most panache wires. I really see this as an major improvement. The gore is also narrower.
4 - part cups with the lace upper section. The fabric is very sturdy and I think it will last. However, the lace seems VERY delicate and thin, and at the same time it's VERY stretchy. I am courious how this will behave with wear. This type of lace could be at the same time the strongest, and the weakest point of the bra.
I feel the cups are a bit deeper than the andorra.
I am really impressed with cup construction - the lace part is great, it's like spidersweb - very thin, silky and I don't feel it at all. The band is really comfortable and snug, I don't even feel the wires that much now that Ive bent them. The only place I feel the bra is the straps - they digg in a bit, my boobs are too heavy for such thin straps.
This one really does give great shape and uplift. The profile is round - but not the fake round you sometimes get from cleo, but more natural round. I even feel like it slightly minimises the bust without compromising on projection. It's not exactly the green shape, but it isn't that far from it - I don't have any boob bumping with arms https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Not really sure how this is possible https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
The side support pannel centers the boobs much more than the andorra
Room from improvement
- wider straps!!!
- print - not really my cup of tea.
- I'd like to have this in some lighter colours also, white or nude.
Highly reccomend. I think this bra will work for almost every shape out there. Great everyday bra.
I feel this bra is anoucing new era in panache bras and I think it is proof that bramakers really hear our feedback.
