Panache have been one of my favourite bra brands for around 5 years now. Their Cleo ‘George’ bra even ‘changed my life’ and was the first bra that I ever owned that truly fit me. I feel like I owe a lot to Panache for their years of loyal service to my boobs, but never have I been more thankful than I am right now.
Their latest collection is one of the tastiest they have ever released and easily one of the cutest available to the bigger busted gal. My top pick from the bunch is without a doubt the Ellie, with a very similar fit and style to their gorgeous continuity style Juna, which I reviewed back in February.
Whilst I loved the Juna’s shape and simplicity with elegant black satin cups, this bright watercolour print is simply jaw-dropping. For me, it was one of those styles that I simply HAD to have, and I refused to wait until the end of season sales. It was hard enough waiting for it to come around after seeing it at Moda and the Panache press day…
The gorgeously supportive balcony style is my all-time favourite, but add the lightly foam-lined cups, detailed straps, pretty pink lace trim and unbeatable rounded shape, and you’ve got yourself an Invest In Your Chest 10/10. and very well deserved it is.
Like with the Juna, I had to up-size to a 28G in this, and I fill the cups to the brim. This is a 28FF free zone! I initially tried this in a 30FF (the size I’ve been wearing most recently) and I definitely need a 28 band in this style as the band is pretty stretchy. The straps are not fully adjustable so if you struggle with this then you might have trouble with the Juna and Ellie styles, however I found the straps were great; I didn’t even need to tighten them all that much for them to fit me perfectly.
Thanks to the gorgeous print continuing right around to the bra wings (no plain fabric in sight!) I’ll be teaming this one with the drop-side vests that are ‘in’ at the moment. After all, my fashion sense is so bad I might as well share my gorgeous lingerie with the world whenever possible, right?!
