This bra runs small in the cup. And when I say 'small', I mean almost one cup smaller than the label suggests. It also has really narrow underwires for a Panache bra. They are very log though and may poke.
The band isn't very stretchy, therefore lowering your size too much might not be a good idea.
The bra is really beautiful, made of satin covered with lace. The inside fabric unfortunately isn't as comfy. The lace on the upper part of the cup is soft and rather loose, which gives an impression of too big cups even on my bigger boob, which otherwise wouldn't fit, so in my case it's rather a good thing.
Mind that I bought the bra used, so the original measurements might be a little different from mine.

So wish this style would work for me, the support and lift is awesome!

I'm rating this bra slightly lower for quality as when I first got it, some of the looped threads at the side of one strap have come out. However, I like it enough that this doesn't bother me.
This bra gives a really nice rounded shape and doesn't show a lot of cleavage without being 'a lot of bra'. For reference, I am FOB. I have it in the red-black colourway and my usual 32H appeared to be fine apart from some very minor quadboobing on my fuller side - however, I've heard from a few people that some of the older colourways ran ... a full cup smaller.
The gore doesn't quite lie flat, but this and the quadboobing are the only issues I've encountered with this bra and neither of these affect wear over the day or the appearance of the bra on me (with or without a shirt). When I first bought it the underwires cut into me a little but this seems to have softened over time. Band feels maybe slightly less tight than a standard Panache 32 but I wouldn't call this enough reason to wear a different size, and the lace overlay on the band is really lovely when so many other bras have decoration that stops at the cups.
In all, I think it's a real shame that Panache appears to have stopped making this one - it probably gives the best shape of any Panache bra I've tried.

Weirdest thing . . . I owned this in a 32GG, and I LOVED IT. The shape was fantastic, the fit was so secure, and it looked surprisingly sexy on; it gave just the slightest touch of the quadboob, and I noticed reviews mentioned the cups running consistently small, so I ordered a 32H when I lost my old bra traveling.
Alas, I've gone up a cup size, so the wires can't encompass my breasts, the band and straps are trying to work overtime, and this miracle of bra construction is wildly uncomfortable on me (wires stabbing armpits because they can't get all the breast tissue, band squirming, underwire sliding a full inch beneath the underside of my breast since there's not enough fabric to fit it, QUADBOOB).
If you, like me, have full-on-top breasts and are looking for something to keep you high, tight, and beautifully shaped for everyday, this is a great bra; size up in the cup and order the CORRECT size!

Originally bra wasn't very comfortable, centre gote was too wide and wire was too high and straight under the armpit. After making a small stitch in the bottom of the gore, the wires changed the direction so it's comfortable now.
Bra is very pretty, straps are soft and lined with felt (love Panache for this).
It's quite small 32h - in the cups and it the wire. I'm 73cm (29 inches) under the bust and I would choose 34 next time.

Soooo soft and silky. And sooo wrong for short people.
The cup fits well except the top is slightly too loose. Since the straps are set so far apart, there is no tension on the material and no way to create any, so I jiggle like crazy. The wires are quite long (how did I miss that?) and the wing height combined with the long wires means the wires are right up in my armpit. The wings rub my armpit as well. I wore it for a couple of minutes before the chafing was too much for me.
The material is not only silky but gorgeous: black lace over sapphire cups.

This bra gives a beautiful round shape for my bottom heavy and pointy breasts. I learned from Bratabase that this bra runs small in the cups and that you may have to size up. I ordered a 32H instead of my usual 32GG, which was a right decision. 32GG would have been way too small in the cups (and because my breast tissue is constantly remigrating I might even need a 32HH in the future). The lace in the upper part of the cups is soft and stretchy, so it accomodates to breast shape without gaping or wrinkling.

Cute and sexy bra. It was a bit tight in the band but not uncomfortably so. Also, the cup seemed a size too small.

Good, supportive, but cups run small.
