    This bra is looooovely, it feels really supportive, very much like sexy scaffolding. The wires don't feel too wide on me, I think because they don't get warped when the band stretches, so they're pretty mid-width. I'd prefer a touch narrower, but they don't dig or irritate due to the width. The band is a bit big on me (I think I'm about a 30K in most bras now) but it doesn't ride up much, I think due to how wonderfully wide the four-hook band is.

    I have fairly even upper/lower fullness and it works well for me on that count, but from what I gather it isn't ... the best for very full-on-top, so I think it's more a bra for in between or full-on-bottom breasts. It isn't particularly deep or shallow, it feels more mid-depth all over, which means I have slight overspill towards the centre and some empty space at the straps (I'm more centre heavy). The gore is quite tall, so it lifts very slightly due to me being close-set, and I get a bit of empty space at the bottom. I don't think this is a depth thing, I think it's down to the main issue with this bra - the very tall sides. I don't think I've owned a bra so tall at the sides before, though it doesn't dig so much as slightly irritate and get pushed down.

    I'm a UK 14-16 in clothes (medium in Freya briefs, 40 in Ewa Michalak, 16-18 in Curvy Kate.) and I found the XL high waist briefs to be a good fit, if anyone was considering getting the full set. It's a lovely set, I think I will keep it, though I might have to see if it's possible to lower the armhole.

    • Thank you so much for this review! (I am swooning over the 4 hooks, not to mention the overall look of the bra, but 4 HOOKS OMG!!!!) Also, thanks for mentioning your stats regarding the briefs. I am very similar in size, so this is VERY helpful!

      Btw, is this the peach colorway?

      Ooh, yeah, sorry. Peach colourway :) No UK sellers have the red yet, hopefully I'll be able to get it too though!

    • I know you said your size has changed recently, but how would you compare your size in this to your Ewa size? (I ask because I have been wearing mostly just EM bras lately, but I NEED the Charlotte!)

    • 1

      To be honest I'm not really sure what size I need in EM at the moment :/ My 30K PLs are small in the cup if I tighten the straps, but the cup jumps are pretty big in the higher cup sizes. Maybe a 30KK with the pads in? A 30KK would be best in the Charlotte, I'd say same size could work.

      Boosaurus has both EM bras and the red Charlotte in a 28H, and found them both slightly small in the cup. I think your EM size would be a good place to start :)

    • Ok, great. Thank you for your advice! (and I <3 your blog)

    • Thanks for the review! :) I know this bra will never work for me and I don't need it at all, but now reading your review, I think there is a small chance it could actually work for me? I need wide / tall wires and equal bottom / top room. How many sizes up compared to Panache Jasmine?

    • 1

      I need the Charlotte two cups up from my Jasmine size. I found my 30JJ Jasmine good in the cup but about a bandsize loose, so ideally I'd need a 28K in the Jasmine, 30KK in the Charlotte.

    • Did you ever find out about lowering the armhole? I just got one as well, and that's my only big issue.

    Better for someone who needs only moderate projection

    This is a beautiful padded plunge , but runs multiple cupsize smaller than it says on the label.

    I ordered the high waist panties with it and the together they give a 70's pin up model look, except the cups are nice and round. The 4 closure hook and the construction is excellent, gives great support.

    The cups are shallow and the wires are wide. Maybe not as wide as the CK daily boost, but wide nevertherless. I have projected narrow root breast and this bra doesn't suit that kind of breast for sure.
    I wear 32J in Cleo and Panache bras and I ordered 32K in this and I am spilling out of it like crazy. I would need a 32KK, which doesn't exists. Plus probably even that size won't work because the shape mismatch.

    This bra is not owned any more
