I bought the Panache Emily balconette on zulily several seasons ago in my usual size of 30FF. The style is discontinued now, so it might be hard to find but if you do find it in your size, chances are it will be a bargain.
Close up on the upper lace section and the gore, plus all that pretty lacy detail.
This bra is made out of very comfortable materials. It is actually the most comfortable bra I own, and the band runs true to size. Unfortunately this bra just did not fit me correctly.
You can even see the shape problems under a shirt!
This is some of the worst quadboob I’ve ever gotten. I’m not even full on top, I’m full on the bottom and projected. The problem is that the upper lace section is very stiff and cuts in. Going up a size wouldn’t help because the bottom of the cups fit me perfectly already. It’s just the construction that isn’t working. It really bummed me out that this bra didn’t work for me, because it really is super comfortable!
Unfortunately Emily and I didn’t work out, but I’ve got my eye on the Jasmine right now and I’m hoping we’ll be a better fit!
