    This is my boob heaven bra. It's amazing. Seriously.

    1. It's the first bra for as long as I can remember that actually tacks. This is due to the underwires sitting on top of each other because my boobs as good as touch. But with just 1 wire width, the gore tacks in that tiny space between them.
    2. The stretch lace is amazing. Normally I always get the top of the bra to cut into tissue and quadboob, but whatever I do in the Jasmine, it won't quadboob!
    3. The band is firm and supportive, even though it's too large, I should have 32s.
    4. the floral print is so pretty!!!!

    *edit end of June 2013* I've now altered the band down so this bra is now 32KK. It barely rides up anymore so this bra is like the perfect fit on me now.

    • Seriously this bra really fits you like a halfcup! It's like an unpadded EWA CH bra shape :O It's super interesting!

      Do you also naturally project east and west? It looks like that. I do that and I've become fond of it :) Are your nips also east west when leaned over?

      This bra on you looks super cool! :)

      I'm in love with this bra! I've already snagged the last 34Ks from Figleaves which arrived yesterday, so I've now got 3 Jasmines Floral/navy in my possession :D
      Wishing the black/multi wasn't sold out everywhere, because I want it too! And of course the red/pink lace one that will launch this June :D

      Anyway, yes I totally project east and west. Fiance says my nips do still point to the sides when leaned over.

      Loving it, wearing it as much as possible! <3

    • I thought the EM PL also tacked on you (and got painful)? I'm surprised at how much deeper it is than both the 36K Jasmine I added and the 34Js. Did you measure while wearing it? I'm wondering if this colourway is more generous than the black one, which would be great news!

    • petalmoon: Yay, this means I'm not alone anymore in the natural east west thing. <3 #happyface

    • 1

      ohmyohmy I thought it tacked as good as it got for me when I first got it. Now that I've experienced "true" tacking, I can say for sure that the gore doesn't tack at all on the EM PL.
      I measured while having the bra over my knee, but I always pull a bit on the fabric so it's straightened out and not wrinkling, just like it'd be on my boobs.

      Branarchist yay! <3

    • Thanks, petalmoon! I'll try and get that colourway in a 34K instead of 36K, since it seems much more generous. It would be awesome not to have to alter the band!

    • Oh I also measure cup depth somewhat stretched since it's the most logic way to measure it!

    • Hmmm you mean that if I ever do find the black/multi I'd really need to get it in 34K not the 32K I am going to try with the bravissimo-exlusive soon?

    • 2

      I'm not sure as I only have the black print one and have not tried the summer version, but based on the pics, most of the figures entered are for the winter (black print) and if you look at the figures for the 32K, 36K and 34J compared to you 34K, it seems less generous.
      It is common for black bras to be somewhat smaller than other colours (both in the cup and the band).
      That being said, I think I measure more conservatively than you do: on my knee but almost without stretching, because I figure the boob shape, size and firmness will affect how the bra stretches, so I'd rather work with the "gross" figure.

    • Did you stretch this to the max petal moon? I just got this bra in pink and haven't measured it but if it's really 17 cm in depth it's a little depressing because it fits in the cups!

    • Huh? The bra is shown as 41.2cm depth... and how it fits you is the most important, always!
      Only use the measurements to find comparable bras!

    • Sorry, I meant 17 inches! It's easy to get caught up in the numbers.

    • Ah. of course. Well as long as it fits... ;)

    • I've got one other question. Perhaps you have a long torso but don't the 34K wires poke you any?

    • I have no idea if my torso counts as long or short - but there's no poking :D

    • My smallest part of my body is my underbust so that's my waist and it's short. I guess if it's anywhere else that isn't your underbust it's average or long. I'm glad they don't poke you but they do me so I was just trying to figure out why, thanks.

    • Ah, my underbust is the smallest part too. Sometimes at the end of the day there's a little poking, but it's almost unnoticable so I don't really count it.
      Sucks that it does poke you!

    I just got this bra in the mail today and it is the best fitting bra I have ever owned. With that being said, it is far from perfect but that is mainly because I have been wearing the wrong size bras most of my adult life and now have ginormous omega breasts. On top of that, my left boob is almost 2 whole cups bigger than the right.

    The 34K - Panache » Jasmine (6951) gave me a lift that I never thought was possible for my extremely heavy breasts. The wires creaked under the weight for the first hour or so but now have ... quieted down. The wires are much narrower than my Elomi Caitlyn Underwire Side Support (8030) and Goddess Keira Banded Underwire (6090) and they actually sit on the outer edge of my rib cage instead of my back. It is still a smidgen too tall, poking under my right arm while the wire holding in my larger left boob feels like it is barely there.

    Before trying this bra, I stayed away from anything that was not full cup because I thought being a bigger size meant that I needed fuller coverage to avoid spillage which occurred anyway. Even tho I am jiggling and wiggling more in this cup style, my girls stay put even when I bend over. I actually feel more secure in the Jasmine than I ever did in my Elomi or Goddess.

    The cup separation is the best I have ever had in a bra but its a wee bit too wide, giving my close set boobs that east/west look. The cups are very deep, deeper than I thought was possible (thanks in part to the stretch lace). After doing my measurements properly with the help of this site, I found out that I have full on top boobs but didn't realize how full until I got this bra, I have 2 inches of empty fabric at the bottom of the cups! O.O

    Jasmine's gore has gotten the closest to my sternum than any other bra I have ever owned, but it is still about an inch from tacking. My other bras, the gore would float on TOP of my breasts, not even close to getting in between them.

    The band sits flat and stays put on my 33.5 inch ribcage at the loosest hook and is comfortably snug. I feel extremely supported from down there, which is a wonderful change from bras that use to float and shift around on the bottom of my boobs.

    The straps are perfect, they are padded and very comfortable. They are wider set than I am use to but feel great! And for the first time in my life, I didn't need to over tighten the straps to feel secure or get the lift I wanted, in fact, I am wearing the straps at the loosest setting!

    As I said in the beginning, the Panache Jasmine (6951) is the best fitting bra I have ever owned, and has really helped me narrow down what I need to look for in a bra to get closer to the perfect fit!

    • This is my fave bra (i'm full on bottom). I'm hoping that the more people like it, the more colors we can get! yay for finding your best bra ever! I hear you on the crazy big boobs! hopefully they will also start making bigger cups too!

    • Yay! I LOVE the shape it gives me, very natural, rounded and uplifted. I look and feel 10 years younger!

      I have seen a few colors so far but are mostly vendor exclusives. I got mine at Bare Necessities and they have 3 other color ways available at different sizes.

      This bra seems like a good in between. And the lace does a good job of containing my full on top boobs. but if I could fill the empty fabric on the bottom, I believe most of my other fit issues would be resolved.

      I am gonna try an Ewa Michalak bra next but I am not sure which style, as I am pretty sure I would not be able to afford the return as I am in New York.

      Any suggestions?

    • aphrospice The BM cut is basically the same sort of thing as the Jasmine; a rounded balcony style with stretch lace on top. So, if you like the Jasmine, that could be a good choice.

      Other than that, the other options in your size range are the S (padded medium cut balcony), SM (unpadded medium cut balcony) and PL (lower cut plunge). You need to have the right kind of boobs and frame for PL to work on you in this size range and a lot of people don't, but S and SM are pretty good.

      Resale value on EM is reasonable, they tend to go for $40 US new with tags, so even if the size isn't right, it won't be a total loss for you.

    • Ereshiy So funny you should mention the BM, I was just going through EM's blog and saw the Bm Gwiezdny Pył and promptly added it to my wishlist. They dont have it in my suggested size so I'll have to custom order it. It does look very promising! Now I just need to get the funds for this beauty!

      I am scared of plunges, my boobs are pretty massive and have a life of thier own. But then again, the Jasmine contains them quiet well so.. I will keep an eye out for something here in my size to grab.

      Thank you for the resale numbers, I will mos def make the investment. The Jasmine really helped me figure out that from what I read about EM bras that they are will probably be the closest I will come to the perfect fit.

    Even though my "how it fits" has some bads (pokes sternum, too wide set straps) because of my size and breast weight, this is actually the 2nd most comfortable bra I've ever worn. I look so high and round, my breast stay in place and my neck, back and shoulders don't hurt. This is my bra. basically the only one I wear, because i feel so sexy and in control in it. yes, I'd like it if the wires were slightly lower and if the straps were a bit closer in. But I've never found a bra that was more comfortable that makes me look and feel as ... amazing. No quad boob, no side boob, no sad and pointy boobs. I think based on my measurements that they run large, as I get more support in a 34. they do stretch after wear, so I would do the tighter of two bands. In a 34 K the poking is minimal, and the straps don't fall down, they just feel like they will. I very much reccomend this bra, especially for large breast.

    Nicely supportive bra with good projection. the wires are very stiff and for me come too high in the gore.

    This is now my favorite bra. It is extremely comfortable and gives my breasts a very round, projected shape. The stretch lace at the top of the cups doesn't cut into my breasts and the cups contain all my breast tissue. The only fit issue I have is that the wires are quite a bit too wide, but this doesn't significantly impact my comfort and I'd be hard pressed to find a better overall fit.

    Edit: The first time I wore this bra for a full day, the fabric was scratchy and the wing were uncomfortably high. After a few washings with Eucalan, the fabric is fine, although the Floris is better. I had to lower the wings of the bra by about half an inch, but now the underwires poke a bit and I may have to shorten them as well.

    I set this as a 'fit', but I would actually need a larger cup size. Still, this works better than a 36K with the band shortened, because the gore doesn't come quite as tall. As it is, I sometimes fall out of the cups and have to readjust.

    This is one of the better fitting bras that I own. It's the first bra that didn't give me quadboob! It gave me a great, rounded shape under clothes and the floral pattern is just beautiful. There are some drawbacks to this bra, though.
    I don't feel very supported in this bra. I feel I have to adjust the straps almost all the way to get the support and lift I need, and when I do the sides of the bra dig into my underarms. Speaking of the straps, they only adjust halfway, but they can be forced to adjust more if needed. The band is on the stretchy ... side. I started to get that uncomfortable riding up feeling and had to move it to the second hook after only 20 minutes of wear. I also feel the power mesh on the band is too weak and needs reinforcing. The wires are WAY too wide for me and almost reach around my back! And because the wires are too wide, I have trouble filling the sides and bottom of the cup. I end up having a lot of wrinkled fabric there.
    But, even with all the cons, this bra is the closest thing to a perfect bra that I have.

    I have purchased this bra thrice - so see the other review.
    Have since altered the bands on all so it's technically 32KK now.

    This is one of my better bras as it actually lifts my boobs due to how the cups and straps are constructed. In addition, the straps angle towards the center of the chest which is good for me, otherwise I get major cup wings on the sides of the bra near the stop of the cups near the underarm area. I cannot wear @Fantasie, @Elomi or goddess bras for this precise reason.

    Bad news is that like all of my bras, I do not fill the bottom of the cup. I've tried sizing down, bigger band, smaller cup and same problem in all the ... bras. The base of my breasts are higher than the underwires. Sizing down a cup causes quadboob and sizing up the band causes the underwires to slip up and down on my ribcage and my boobs to fall out the bottom of the cups once the band stretches. I actually went to a specialty bra shop for this bra and a few others. I was there for 3 hours and tried on literally dozens of bras across many sizes and brands. Nothing fit perfectly, but I picked several that were comfortable, didn't poke me and gave me a nice shape. This one was one of my favorites.

    The Jasmine gives me a nice rounded shape with a push up effect rather than a supported, lower natural shape of a @Panache Andorra. Though this bra is supportive, you will still be very bouncy. Great date night bra. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":-D" />

    • I have the same issue is most bras. I think I read somewhere that it means your breasts are too high set for the bra.
