    28DD

    Didn't fit

    This bra is pretty and well made, but unfortunately creates a less than flattering shape. It doesn't lift at all, it's just kind of... there. It pushes my breasts down and slightly to the sides -- the same problem I had with the Panache Porcelain! You can see that bra and review here: http://www.bratabase.com/browse/panache/porcelain-molded-seamless-underwire-3376/28E/

    Originally I tried the 28E in this, and the cups were slightly loose so I thought this one would be a perfect fit. However, this one is too tight in the cups. Also, the cups are too far apart, which contributes to the odd shape. They ... are 1.1" apart, whereas all my other bras in this size range are 0.7 - 0.9" apart. I did have a pucker at the center edges of the cups, as the 30D reviewer complained about (it's visible in my photos). This could be a symptom of the cups being too far apart as well.

    I guess this brand isn't for me, which is odd, because I have a Cleo bra that I love, and that is made by Panache. If I could just combine the fit (sizing) of Panache with the gravity-defying lift of Fantasie and the style of Freya, I'd have the perfect bra. Oh well.

    The cups of this bra are very low-cut. The seams are bound and non-irritating. The band, instead of being powernet or mesh like most bras, is a lightweight (almost sheer, but still firm) spandex with a shimmer to it... cool.

    Color is "Chilli." Purchased from Figleaves, late Spring 2010.

    • It probably doesn't fit you that great because you're wearing it too low. Notice the baggy area in the bottom of the cup and the taught fabric at the top of the cup in the second picture? (Left Side shot) If this was lifted at the correct position on your ribcage it would most likely eliminate both of those problems. Perhaps try a larger band size instead. Too small of a band will cause it to sit low and make the bottom of the cup too loose with the top being too tight.

    • hlaleo, I have to politely disagree with you on this one. The wrinkling at the bottom of the cup on the left side is due to that side being about 1/4 cup size smaller than the other. You can see from the right side shot that the right cup fits and is at the correct spot (no wrinkling at the bottom). The only way to eliminate the wrinkling on the bottom left would be to wear the bra crooked -- I have this problem with almost every bra I own; in fact, you can see it in some of my other pictures on Bratabase.
      The band was the correct size. It sat perfectly level all the way around (again, you can see this in both side shots), and the center gore sat flat against my breastbone. I still think the weird shape was due to the cups being just a hair too far apart, and also the fabric being a bit too soft for support.

    • 1

      Not to be a pest, but it looks like both cups have wrinkling in the bottom, one definitely more than the other though. I do see now what you mean about it sitting crooked, I didn't notice that before. That can be remedied by tightening the strap for the smaller breast, or in the case of Scoliosis - the lower shoulder. As for the band, even if it's too small, it can sit level across the chest but the underwires will not be directly under the breast tissue and it causes the breasts to be pulled down. A good rule of thumb for where the center, or fullest, part of your bust should be is halfway between the top of your shoulder and crease of your elbow. If it's below that, the support is off. Just some helpful hints. If it's not needed, no worries =)

    • Thanks, I do appreciate it! :-) I'm a big advocate of proper bra fit. I am going to use your suggestions and play around with a couple of the bras I have, just to see if I can indeed get them to sit better.

    Didn't fit

    This bra did not fit me, clearly. I'll do my best to comment on aspects other than the fit.
    The band is a good fit, I'd say it's squarely in the 28 category, so no need to size up or down. It's a little stretchy but the elastic is firm, and I had to really pull to get my stretched measurement. The straps are fully adjustable, for those of you who need it. The bra is really not the most charming thing I've ever owned, but the seams and embroidery are rather flat, and this comes in about a million colors, so it's a good candidate for an everyday ... bra. I find the mesh in the wings a bit thin (it's probably prone to emphasizing back fat, even if there isn't much to speak of). The mesh of the cups is really sturdy, though, with zero stretch at all. Actually, the comfort issue I had with the cups is that the seams are pressed to the inside, but the cup is single-layered. While they try to remedy discomfort with a strip of fabric over the seams, the edges of that really sturdy mesh are not completely covered and I found that they were very itchy.
    Now, my one comment on fit: This being Panache, the wires are somewhat wide (which I like), but contrary to most of their other styles, the cups here are very deep. To top it off, the top of the cups closes up pretty fast. It's not a look that I can fill out, and even more, it's not the type of plunge that will give lots of cleavage (especially in this size). Just be aware of that if you're thinking of buying.

    Didn't fit

    Okay, so this bra is my best fitting bra so far!
    It's sturdy embroidered mesh material in a yellow-toned beige colour ('Nude').
    I have even all over boobs with a medium width, close set and with average projection. Gores are my nemesis.

    Pros:
    - Comfortable, the only bra I forget I'm wearing!
    - Straps are a good length
    - The only bra I can perfectly fully fill out a cup in!
    - Nice colour selection
    Cons:
    - The gore used to be painful, so I bent it out a bit and it's now so comfy.
    - The wires are a hair too U shaped, so I get some wrinkling at the bottom of the cup, but I ... don't find it to be any other issue apart from cosmetic.
    - The shape it gives is a little bit 'meh'. It's kind of a 'natural' pointy shape that looks ok under clothes but nothing that makes me think 'Damn I look good!'

    Conclusion:
    My favourite comfy every day bra so far. I think I'll keep looking for something with a nicer shape, but honestly that feels like it might be a unicorn for me.

    EDIT: I recently tried this on again with an extender because the band started to feel tight, and I found the top of the cup was gaping and I realized the wires were just a bit too wide for me. Panache Jasmine in 36F is a good fit for me.

    • Curious, in my size range it runs really large in the cup, like possibly a full cup size bigger - does it run big in your size range compared ot other bras you've tried?

    • Honestly, I'm not entirely sure. It fits me the same as my Freya Fancies plunge-balcony does. It's quite deep at the nip rather than deep at the underwire and from what I can tell you have to be a really specific shape for it to work, because there is no give in the cups. I had previously thought I needed a cup size bigger in general because I was spilling out of my Cleo Marcie, but I fit fine in the Tango and the Fancies, so I suspect that the Tango plunge works better for me because it's not as narrow as Cleo's are. The Marcie was probably forcing my tissue up and out.
      I hope this helps somewhat :-)

    • Have you tried panache clara? based on this it might work well for you too

    • hugsforyourjugs no I haven't, I was tempted but I heard it had a wide & tall gore (I'm very close set) so I haven't tried it. It's gorgeous though!!!

  4. Yeah. This bra was too small in the band and the wires hurt me extremely. When I added an (homemade) extender, the cups become a little too big, but wires were ok and didn't leave me those marks (last time I've got them for more than 2 days, now they are normal and disappear quickly). So I added a hook to the straps and this is it! The uplift is incredible! The fabric wrinkles a little but there is no empty space - this is because the cups are not meant to be this way. It gives me great uplift and is really comfy, though It 'wants' ... to be straight even when I wear it at an angle - after some moves the wires are at equal height and one boob flies above as usual. However it is really supportive for this higher one too.

    I feel the tension on my trapezius muscles, especially that they bulked a little... I'm gonna try it wearing for next few days and we will see how it works for longer period of time.

    I even like it's look when it is violet...

    Didn't fit

    This is the only bra I own that would allow me to wear the lower-cut faux wrap v-necks that seem to be in 80% of the clothes in the store these days. I'm probably going to get another in a different size -- this is almost there, but not quite. I wear a 36H in other British bras but I bought it off eBay and can't return it.

    I love the lower wires in the middle, that they lie flat against my sternum and are unobtrusive. Most of all, I love that this bra makes my boobs seem slightly less huge without being a minimizer.

    28FF

    Didn't fit

    I decided to try a Panache, and I have learned that I am not a Panache girl. As a result of the wide cups, the straps dig into my arms, just a bit, if my posture isn't perfect (or if I have my hands forward on the steering wheel in the car). If you haven't tried Panache, this may or may not be an issue for you - it's something worth trying, IMO, as Panache offers a variety of good bras. The band on this bra fits me wonderfully - it's comfortably tight on the loosest setting (and it's new - worn twice). The cups may be a ... bit big, I'm not entirely certain, but the plunge variety of this bra can be difficult to fit. This is certainly wearable.

    On to the specifics of this bra:
    The construction is great. I don't know the durability yet - I've only worn the bra once. The leaf stitching on the cups is quality, and looks nice. There's good detail work - the side of the branches with larger leaves has a different texture from the smaller leaves. It's clearly intentional and shows good attention to detail. The cups have an inner liner, so the inner side of the leaf stitching isn't against the breast. Still, the bra ends up being a bit itchy. The cups themselves are not nearly as comfortable as the cups on my Fantasie Smoothing Balcony Bras (even when both are new). However, the Tango II is a very popular bra, and it's possible this itchiness will work out of the bra as it breaks in.

    This specific bra was labeled "teal" by FigLeaves. It's a very bright, vibrant color. I like it well enough, on its own, but I prefer my bras to be colors that I don't have to worry about showing. I bought this color because it was on sale - it was a cheaper way to try a Panache cup.

    Fits

    This bra gives a bit of a bullet shape, but it fits me *almost* perfectly.... a tiny amount of wrinkling at the top. I don't really like the embroidery on this, but there aren't too many bras that fit me! I also don't like it in black, so I'm going to get a different color.

    Now, how it might fit you!!! I am full on bottom and close-set, so this plunge works for me. The cups are not TOO high, like the high apex plunges or Bravissimo plunges. I'm also center-full, but I don't spill out, perhaps because the cups hold me in that bullet shape! (I'm also splayed, so that might help.

    This is the best plunge bra I've ever owned. I'm not sure about the size—I have a vague memory that the store where I bought it might have been out of my regular cup size, and so I went up a cup. Interestingly, the band has also stretched out more than my other Panache bras—when I buy a replacement, I'm going to go with the 34FF.

    This one fit pretty close to perfect, but had slight quad-boob on my larger breast. Also, the band fit but tighter than some other brands in 38. I also did NOT like the shape this gave me.

    Not great for the asymmetrical - it fits my left boob beautifully but rides up under the armpit near my slightly smaller right boob. The fabric feels a bit scratchy and the band is a bit thin.

    The cups are unusually tall, which is good if you like that sort of thing. I'm personally not a fan. Still, the overall impression is nice, especially under clothing.

    I bought it on clearance and it was worth $14, but I wouldn't pay full price.

    • I'm always looking for very low gores and low coverage cups, so thanks for the review!

    • Meaning you just saved me buying and returning this bra, since it's on sale at figleaves.com and they have free shipping this weekend!
