    As someone with a small frame this bra ends about halfway into my armpit. The underwires are hugeee on me!

    This bra is very pretty and I really wish it fit, but it's just terrible for me! The gore is too wide for my close-set breasts and rubs onto the breast tissue there, while the cups are too wide and the underwire ends in my armpit and also rubs there. The band is too big and the cups could perhaps be a tiny bit smaller, maybe a 28JJ would be a better size for me.

    I did attempt to non-permanently alter this bra by sewing the gore closer together and the underwire forwards to stop the rubbing, but it didn't help all that much. I've removed the threads I had sewn in and I don't see any needle holes but if you do, that is why.

    • so curious what bras work for you because I recognize a lot of your issues!!

    • needgallifreyantech I ended up having pretty good success with Comexim and Ewa bras actually. Have you tried any of them?

      I'll try to post some reviews in the next few days on the last few bras I got which ended up fitting me well.

    Hasn't set fit

    This bra came closest to fitting, but the wires are very hard/stiff, and the center wires hit very painfully. I think I have a dent at the clavicle, nothing serious, but the wire hits above it regardless of bending and so forth. OUCH.
    After this I tried the Panache wired sports bras and they are much more comfortable. The fit is not as perfect (and I went to slightly other sizes based on availability)- gore floats a litte depending on size- but holds me up where I should be and does not hurt. I may have to think about this as pectus excavatum I guess? Try plunges or whatnot? IT is hard in this size. I am really eager to figure out what else I could try.

    • You already tried bending the Gore out correct ? How about trying the bra on the bra on with an extender ? Not the full extension but one or two hooks out giving you an extra half inch or so to feel if it's not pulling the center as tight to you body .

    • Well, Ewa Michalak would be my next stop . . .

    • 1

      Ivp - yup- but no, the band cannot go looser. This isn't about where the wires sit width-wise but how tall they are. They are too tall in my cup size. I played around a lot with sizes (even extenders). If a hard wire hits me in the sternum, it hurts.

    • dbmamaz my thinking more and more, too. Overwhelmed by what style etc and finding/ordering just now.

    • yeah, its quite an adjustment, getting your head around them.

      In general for me, I tend to go up a band size (because i've had 2 bands from her that were a full band size too small), but sister-sizing that if you are ordering an unlined bra (like BM or SM) but going up a cup (which means really up a band but same cup letter) for the lined - S is the only lined I've worn - because the lining takes up space.

      I was wearing a 32J in panache when I came here, and now have a 32JJ jasmine that i'm pretty happy with (high gores are good for me), feel free to look around my bras to see if that helps any

    • Yeah, Panache uses wires in a gauge like 8x stiffer than any other brand. But the sport is wrapped in silicone. Every J cup wire should be wrapped in silicone! lol

      If you NEED the panache stiff wire, after bending you can pad it with felt (or have this done). If you don't need the wire but do need the shape/other aspects of panache fit, you can do some research and change out the wires. The 30JJ has about a size 54 wire.

    • I have pulled out a panache 30jj under wire it's a 52 vertical that was the closest you can buy retail ,bra makers supply has a chart that it matched up to as I didn't want panache wires lol I went with flexible wires . I personally bought these flexible underwires from bravo bella bra supplyhttp://bravobellabras.com/products/underwires?variant=1165284588
      They are very comfortable , flexible pretty narrow , and easy to replace your uncomfortable underwires with them . I found them too flexible for my bust and had to double up to get support I need you might be different . It's a good way to salvage a bra that works in all but this way . Oh these wire are so flexible they only soft tack and you can take of the end cap cut with a wire cutter and put the cap back on if you need the wire to be shorter . It's an option for a fix .
      My issue is I get pain at the Gore because I have just a bit of connection of skin/breast right there it either needs to soft tack or be a bit lower or sometimes higher . That's why I asked how it felt with an extender to see if it feels better with a soft tack or if you just plain need a lower Gore that would help you decide which ewa michalak style you wanted to try .. I think her s is the same height maybe a plunge is lower.

    • i climb out of S but not of Jasmine so I think its lower.

      Yeah - my 32JJ jasmine has a gore height of 4.7, and my 75JJ S has a gore height of 4.

    Okay, after wearing it a bunch, I am finally ready to review this bra. Overall, it is lovely. I have had really bad luck with Panache bras in the past, but enough people here told me to try it that I decided to go for it, and I'm glad I did. Here are my pros and cons:

    PROS:

    - The lace at the top is flexible enough to not cut into my full-on-top (and everywhere else) boobs, but firm enough that I don't push it out above the patterned part of the bra, and there is enough space at the bottom of the cup that once I ... jiggle around a bit, I get little to no wrinkling.

    - The material is thin and breathable and the seams subtle enough that I am happy to wear it under T-shirts.

    - The band is a good width, although I would always like even wider (why aren't there longlines in my size??).

    - The gore sits flat on my sternum, very snugly.

    - The shape is nice and round, and almost right on the front of my chest. Boobs appear natural-ish but not saggy at all.

    - The straps aren't too short, which is rare on me, as I have stupidly small shoulders. I like that the entire length of the band is adjustable.

    - I haven't had it THAT long, but so far it seems the quality level is high.

    CONS:

    - This is a personal thing, but the wires are too wide for me. My boobs start right at the edge of the front of my chest, so I prefer very narrow wires. These go around quite far onto my sides, and after a while they begin to dig a lot. I am unfortunately not able to figure out how to do BrasIHate's wire bending system, and I'm not sure it would work on something this far from ideal, so... Eh.

    - I'm really closer to a 28 band, so I can't really complain that the band is too large with any degree of certainty, but I do feel like it's on the stretchy side. I will be having it taken in.

    - The gore is wider than is my preference, but of course YMMV.


    All in all I would say it is a very nice everyday bra, especially if, like me, you have to wear a lot of black (for work, in my case) and want comfort and a good but unobtrusive look for your boobs.

    I think stretch lace is one of my very best friends. I love the stuff. While this bra is a bit uncomfortable, the fit and appearance are so good that I got myself a second one (honestly, there's also the matter of availability on here). While I do like this, it will be listed with the others as I continue my quest to find the perfect bra.

    I am so in love with this bra. The first time I tried it on, the gore stabbed me constantly. Upon inspection, I saw that it had been taken in. I removed this seam and now it fits perfectly with the aid of a couple of homemade back extenders. The shape is great, and he seams aren't glaringly obvious under clothing, Curvy Kate, take notes!

    This is another lovely sturdy Panache offering. The straps are fully adjustable and it has 3 rows of 3 columns of hooks in this size.

    I got a bird print Jasmine used from another Bratabaser to try out, but unfortunately it's just a bit too small in the cups to be wearable. The stretch lace is a great idea though, and I think it's fabulous for my breasts with a lot of top-central fullness, but as since requesting this bra I've gone up another cup size (from a 28KK/26Lish to a 28L/26LLish), there's just not quite enough room up top for me!

    The wires are very sturdy, as is usual ... for Panache, and a little wider than I'd prefer for my very narrow root, but not unpleasantly wide or high. If the bra was otherwise good, I would have bent the wires to follow the shape of my ribcage a little better.

    The bra straps are quite sturdy as they have a layer of soft padding underneath them. I'm a huge fan of any additional comfort measures for straps in large cup sizes, so this is a positive for me.

    I definitely plan to try out the 30K to see if I can get a better fit in the cups. Jasmine is both very soft and very supportive, so I hope that sizing up will help.
