Many volumes have been written about this bra, so I won't belabor the typical comments. I, like others get a more pointy shape with Jasmine. There is ever so slightly too much projection at the apex for me.
I was comparing this to other bras in my drawer and happened to notice the cut of this is similar to my Kinga Michelle (http://bra.pe/XZnc/), but that bra seems to fit me almost perfectly right now (new pics added today). The cut of the lower cup on the Kinga seems to gives a rounder shape, but then again, I think it's technically a cup size smaller. That ... said, they are only measuring 1cm difference in depth, and the Jasmine has more stretch while Michelle's fabric is firm.
All in all, not bad, not great. I think I would fit better in a 32FF in this model. In the mean time, I'm planning on a minor alteration to remove some fullness at the apex.
Me: short & narrow roots, center full, close set, pendulous, petite, short waisted, low set, fairly even fullness, narrow shoulders, soft.

Love this bra. I only wish it had slightly more projection and held things in front a hair more. Otherwise, it fits exactly like a bra should fit and the shape is really quite nice.

This is a very good bra - if not the most exciting ever. The pattern, while muted, is quite elegant. It's comfortable (though the narrow straps do make for a slight shoulder indent after long wear).The vertically seamed lower cup (in 3 pieces) is very supportive and uplifting and it abuts an upper cup that is made of very stretchy lace. This is what makes the bra so well-suited to women of differently sized breasts. The very stretchy upper cup allows for dispersion of fullness. And although the cup seaming is vertical, the shape of the (non-stretch) lower cup is the same as one that's done in the typical 3-piece shape having a diagonal seam. Overall, I think this works well on a full-through-centre, deep breast or one which is full on top.

Bought this bra used on BTB, together with a pink Envy.
The bras arrived neatly packaged and are still in good wearable condition, as advertised.
When I first discovered the Jasmine (4-5 years ago) I purchased multiple sizes to decide, so I had previously tried it on in this size, 32G.
Back then I discarded the 32G as 'too flimsy', as I preferred the 3-hooks and sturdier construction in the 30GG and 30H.
Now, I specifically wanted a 'lighter' fitting stretch lace bra (quarantine comfort, ya know), and I'm trying to be more mindful of re-using and recycling - which made me buy these 2 bras second-hand.
While I was initially ... content with my purchase, and there's nothing majorly 'wrong' with this bra, after a couple wears I'm not sure this is best for me; comfort-wise.
It fits alright, but the wires are still Panache-firm and the gore is too high for me - I had to bend it out with pliers to stop pressing into my sternum.
Interestingly, the gore feels relatively higher than the 30GG that I still own?
One issue: the underband is permanently 'rolled' outward under the cups. Not sure how this is caused exactly, as I haven't experienced this happening as signs of wear in my 'own' bras (when bought new - however the Envy I bought together with this Jasmine has it as well). At first I thought washing it would help; with some manual manipulation to re-structure and un-roll the underband while drying it - but that sadly hasn't helped. Too bad, because although it seems minor it does create some discomfort on me.
I do really like the appearance, the grey/brown/purple-ish snake print on black, and the stretch lace cups that Jasmine is famous for. Also like the black straps, quite convenient as I wear black often. This bra is certainly wearable and might serve a purpose, but as I do actually have more comfortable unpadded bras, it may need to be rehomed or donated in the end.

The Jasmine is a go-to staple in my bra wardrobe. This one is a black and gray colorway with snakeskin print on the cups. It's solid, comfortable, and supportive, and the stretchy lace at the top of the cup is really forgiving for full on top shapes.

This is a good bra in that it actually fits me, due to the stretch lace at the top of the cup. I don't get quadding because of this (I'm full on top). The one annoying thing is that the wires come up too high under my arms and leave red marks and bruising.

This bra fits me for the most part, but is not the ideal shape and style for me. The stretch lace is very comfortable, however, as I move it can feel a bit loose and not firm enough, since I am not full on top. The gore height is taller than I prefer. All of this would be ok, it is still comfortable, but the shape just isn't what I like, it's quite a projected shape, and while not super pointy, it is not a rounded as I look for in a bra. Still it is a very pretty, and good quality bra, just not for me.

The straps are set pretty wide, make sure you loosen them up considerably.

Measured on tightest hook: Buy bigger cup, smaller band, closer set straps, narrower wire. Wires are less wide than Cleo Lucy or Cleo Marcie of Panache Envy

I had high expectations for this bra... And I was disapointed when I tried it. The Botton of the cup and the wings are made of a very stiff mesh, which I found unconfortable and itchy, maybe it would soften whith wearing ait and washing it a couple of times. The cups are VERY deep. I usually need deeper cups than the average boob, but this one was too much for me and there was wrinkling on the horizontal line of the bra, therefore the shape was more pointy than rounded.
The wires are quide wide, but not as much as I would like to. they are also ... very rigid and come high, poking my underarm.
The top of the cup is made of soft and strechy lace, reducing the risks of quad-boob.
The straps are ridiculously far apart. I tought my soulders were broad for my frame and wide straps usually do not bother me, but these were too much.
Compared to 30G, Panache Andorra (Exchange or sell $15.00), Jasmine is more rigid, deeper, and less comfortable, but this might be good for women with saggy breast. Andorra is more strechy overall, but still offers good support. The side support is more effective and rigid with Jasmine.
I think this bra would fit well for women who need a LOT of projection, average to wide wires and that are quite tall.
At the end I returned this bra as it does not fit me well.
