So when I first picked up the new Caramel colorway the band measurements were a pinch over 29/34, snugger than your average new Jasmine. (Really, I measured a couple extra times to make sure since I'm familiar enough with an expected range for Jasmine.) This works out great for me, as I've lost just enough weight to be on the upper end of 34 bands, am going to second hook pretty fast on 36 bands, and can't return this particular bra (local boutique special order).
I did notice a bit of wrinkling on the cups, probably from band over stretching the first few wears, that has mostly smoothed out. ... It's probably more noticeable being a solid, lighter colorway, where prints would easily mask minor wrinkling near the seams. Situations like these are also why I prefer to wear a bra for about a month before writing a review. A handful of solid, day to day wears really helps shake out how well a bra will work for you in the long run, not unlike a pair of shoes.
The band is now at 30/35 so I've updated my initial measurements, but if you pick up the new Caramel colorway keep in mind it may be a bit more snug than expected your first few wears.

The band on this bra fits OK. I find the fabric rough and scratchy. The underwires poke me under the arms. The gore is close to tacking but not quite. The top of the right cup wrinkles but the top of the left cup looks OK. There is some minor strap gap on both sides. This bra gives me a strange, "square" boob shape. I might try it in a bigger cup, though I am concerned that this might make the wrinkling issue worse. I will probably be returning this bra.

I remember being super excited to see this pattern come out. 1) blue lace 2) not floral 3) blue!
Fits as expected for Jasmine, still happily wearing it.
Oh yeah, that reminds me. Panache, get yourself together when it comes to bottoms. I would LOVE to buy matching briefs for Jasmine but they are not terribly comfortable. The style is overall an awful fit in the front for me, please make them higher, like the Clara bottoms, or add a third option for more full coverage briefs, like Orianne.

Big fan of houndstooth, especially in larger size patterns. Doesn't really apply here, but can I say how nice and sophisticated this bra look is? Pink normally isn't my thing but it really works here. Picked up the matching bottoms in a size too small and unfortunately couldn't find any in the right size after that.
Otherwise, fits as I expect Jasmine to; I know some don't like the slightly pointy aspect but personally I'm a fan of the retro-like appearance.

Jasmine tends to be one of my go-tos as an every day bra, this is my third. I'm a fan of geometric, chevrons, etc; patterns that are generally non floral and structured repeating. This is a good non fussy pattern with interest that's not overpowering. It's certainly something different as far as patterns go, a black and tan crochet appearance.
As far as fit, feels and supports the same as my other two colorways, Mosaic and Houndstooth. I'm sorry I missed out on the original Jasmine; the bird print is super cute. I have not tried any of the other colorways, tho' I was a little tempted with the past season's Blue Floral, so I can't comment to the comparative fit. I think the fabric on the print is a bit more stiff, but that will probably fade with a couple of washings.

I own the Jasmine in the leopard colorway in a 38G but it was never great. I was always adjusting the band and pulling at the wires and just had a slight torpedo boob look going on which I wasn't a huge fan of. After having two other bras that are a 36 band and noticing the 38s were just stretching way too far from my body and riding up, I went for the Jasmine again in a 36GG. So far, it's awesome.
I've been wearing this bra for about 9 hours so far with really no discomfort, which is a total win. The wires are still on the ... wide side for myself, there's some loose material when I lift my arms. There's still a bit of chafing near my underarms because the straps are a bit too wide for me but it's nothing compared to the 38G. I love the way this bra gives me a rounded shape- no more torpedoes! I can see why so many women swear by the stretch lace on this bra as well because the give is amazing. If it wasn't for that give this size would absolutely be a no-go. The gore on this size is SO much better too. I had to take pliers to the 38G to bend the wires out because they were driving me crazy, but this gore isn't that irritating at all. It IS a bit high for me but not painfully so. The 36 band was a great call because it's wonderfully snug but I don't feel like it's trying to kill me. My measurements tell me I should be in a 38 but I have more squish than I account for so the 36 is much more suitable. So far, I'm very pleased with the Jasmine again, the 38G was starting to make me hate it so much! This one will certainly be rotated in as one of my "best fitting" because I'm still yet to find the perfect one https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_confused.gif" alt=":s" />igh: https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

Fits well, Gives a nice round uplifted shape.
I'm not a fan of the stretch lace--I feel it's too loose.
A firmer stretch lace would be way better.
Wires are wide for me and the straps are at the outer most part of my underarm. I'm afraid this is going to lead to discomfort.
Best pro for me--plenty of immediate center projection. My breasts are full in the middle

This is the best bra I have come across to date. No poking anywhere and the cups seem large enough! My only complaint is the the center gore is quite high so I can't wear a lot of my lower cut shirts with this one. It fits so well that I recently ordered another one in a different colorway!

I recently purchased the caramel colorway of the Jasmine and completely agree that it runs tight. I purchased the 30GG and even though I can wear 28s in Freya and 30 in all of my other Panache bras, including the Jasmine in other colorways, this bra is too tight for me. I am waiting a few weeks to loose a few holiday pounds before I wear it.
I just got this bra in Caramel. I picked it up in a 30 band, as my other Jasmine (blue snake print) in a 32 band seemed to stretch out really fast and I discovered I really need a 30 band in most UK bras anyway. I can't even hook it on the loosest hook, so I was thinking of returning it and getting a 32 band. I'm glad I decided to look for recent review here on Bratabase! I think I'll be keeping it based on your review! I love the color - it's perfect for my summer tan skin tone and really not bad even now!
sounds like a job for - temporary extenders!
I just got the blue floral (with gray band) and I cant close it - my other 2 jasmines havent really stretched out at all, so I'm not sure what to do!
I envy that your other models haven't stretched out! I think I'm just hard on bra bands. Perhaps the blue floral also runs tight like the caramel. I've gotten the blue Dogtooth and the black and they seem to fit as expected.
Idk, its also possible i've gained weight. I think that might be the case. My other two are Black Ricamo and Blue Mosaic
