high quality and very supportive. Cups seem a little small so I have a 36DD on order J R from Colorado

This bra has been reviewed well for a full-on-bottom shape, but it didn't work for me. The band is snug but wearable in my usual size. The straps are very wide set, and I found their material to be a bit uncomfortable near my armpit. Also, I'm a bit uneven (less than a cup size), and I like a bit more coverage than this bra has to keep my smaller side more secure. Fern from MN

This was a re-order since I liked the first one so much. Wonderful fit and feels comfortable the entire time it's worn. DIN from Kaneohe HI

I usually wear a 28DD but sometimes Panache runs funny sizewise, so I went down a cup. In the right size it would have fit well, but I ended up sending it back and not exchanging it for the right size because the colors aren't quite the same when it gets here. Instead of the pretty yellow you see in the picture it's more of a weird, neon-avocado color. Good bra, just not my style, and definitely runs true to size. Challyn from Davidsonville

This back on this bra seems to run a lot smaller compared to other bras. I could barely breathe in a 28, which is what I measure. I like that the straps allow for a lot of adjustment. The shape seems good. I'm returning it for a 30D. AJ from Asheville, NC, USA

This bra was a huge disappointment for me. It fit me alright however the gore dug into my chest. By the end of my first day wearing it, I had a gross welt between my breasts. Also, the fabric is incredibly flimsy- half of the cup is two layers of mesh and the other half is one layer of mesh. It gave me no support at all. It felt like I was not wearing a bra but rather a wire wrapped around my chest. Plastic bags taped to my chest would have given me more support and lift. I wear a size 32G. I have close-set, narrow rooted, slightly full on bottom breasts. My her room order arrived very quickly.

Awesome bra. I wanted a nice white bra because of the lighter colored shirts. I ordered it first in a 36H because I saw it said the cups ran a little small, but I ended up sending it back and ordering my reg. size. It fits awesome I love it. I think I'm gonna buy some more colors. Dana from Beach City

The straps on the bra are great as they have bumps on the edge that stops them from falling as you wear it. Cups fit well. My only problem with the bra is that there are only two rows of clips, now this wouldn't be an issue if my breasts were small or light, but as I'm young with big breasts they are quite dense and thus so heavy and the clips don't provide enough support, and I had it tighten firmly with only enough room for two fingers. I feel another row of clips would fix this issue. Nikita (pending 2.1.14) from New York

Very pretty bra which gives me a very nice, rounded shape. Cups seem just slightly small - I experience a very small, but acceptable, amount of overflow at the sides under the armpits. I wish it came in a nude or blush color. I ordered white and would order another if more colors become available. JustMe from Las Vegas, NV, USA

Love this bra. I let the website direct me to the bra that was right for me. It is supportive, great fit, cute and sexy, flattering. So glad I bought it. Coleen from Roxboro, NC, USA

I'm not exaggerating when I say I LOVE this bra! I really do love it. It fits as though my body was the model for the design. Never in my life have I had such uplifted, rounded, front/center shaping (and this is after having 3 babies and breastfeeding). This bra is comfortable enough to sleep in if I so desired, and it looks great under everything. The seams are placed just right to mask any "temperature changes" and the underwires ensure that the cups enclose all tissue. I adore the Neon orange color. I like it so much I may purchase a couple more in this color! Shani from Phoenix, AZ

The Cleo Lucy fits my shape better than any other bra I've owned. It has a low center gore (which I prefer) that sits nice and flat against my chest and gives a rounded shape. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the fit varies a bit depending on the color. Detterbees from Brockton, MA, U.S. A.

Lucy is a dream-come-true for my hard-to-fit shape. If you have wide-root, shallow breasts you must try Lucy. This bra is light, comfortable, supportive, and even pretty! I recently purchased the fun orange-neon Lucy and it looks and feels great. It's as though this bra was tailored to fit me...no small feat. This bra provides rounded, front-center shaping without any strange "points", "quads", or "rolls". I love it and I'm going to purchase at least one in every color. If you love Lucy I highly recommend Cleo Addison, which is quite similar and very beautiful. Shani from AZ

I needed a white bra. This bra is a great fit, comfortable, and amazingly only 2 hooks. This is a great everyday bra and very pretty too. I think I need the other colors. Kathy from Utah

I was wearing the wrong bra for so long, when I tried this on it felt alien to me. But it works, it holds the girls up and apart , and I feel extra sexy with it on. I absolutely love it, and I highly recommend it. I am still getting accustomed to the way the underwire sits though, but it's getting better. Regina from Jamaica

It's the first bra I've ever gotten, along with the Freya I bought here with it, that's ever fit and supported me properly without digging into my shoulders. I actually like the way I look in a bra now. Amber from Michigan

Didn't fit, not much support for large breasts.

Please refer to Bra Fitting Advice Page for help identifying the correct size so you can fully enjoy the benefits of a well fitted bra. There is no way to tell if the bra is really supportive or comfortable, unless you are wearing the correct size. Michelle from Tucson, AZ

The wire pokes into your armpits and sides very bad choice not well made with women in mind.

Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback! I’m sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the fit. We tend to use stronger wires as they need to support up to J cups and we do find that unfortunately in some cases the wires aren’t comfortable for everyone, however most customers are incredibly happy with the comfort and support.

This bras is over-rated per the raves I have read. Still it is a nice bra. Somewhat flimsy for 32HH breasts. The tops of my breasts jiggle and the material is rough and scratchy. Anyway I kept it bz I think I should have bought a 32J. I tried a J cup in Panache Tango and the cup was a little too big. So I stayed with HH which cuts into the flesh at the top of the cup. Quad boobs. The trick is to have a bunch of bras to try on at the same time, but who can order say..12 bras at $65+ and then pay to return them. ALso, these online bras are not in the stores here in Miami. They stop stocking bras at G, if at all. Anyway, I will press on in search of the correct size bras for my jugs. Janet from Miami, FL USA

Band fit well, but cups really too large. I am still trying to figure out what my ideal size is after losing quite a bit of weight, so it is not HerRoom's fault. I sent back the bra and am waiting for the new size to arrive. I liked the quality of what I saw. Annette from San Antonio, Tx USA

I wrote a review previously, giving this bra four stars. I am changing it to two because, after a couple of wears, I am finding it very uncomfortable. The underwires dig into my sides and are really very painful after a couple hours. I just had to change my bra after 2.5 hours of wear because I couldn't stand it anymore. I really wish I could return this, but it's been washed and worn. That's $53 I didn't really have to waste right out the window. Amie from Topeka, KS USA

This bra is fairly comfy and really cute (I got navy/pink). I was concerned about buying a bra with seams because I thought they would show through my shirt and/or be uncomfortable, but they don't cause any problems. I've also found a lot of bras with seams give my breasts a very pointy look, but this has a nice, rounded shape to it. The only place I think it could use improvement is the clasps. I've never owned or tried on a bra with this large of a cup that only has two rows of clasps, and I think I'd like it better if it had three or four, like other larger-cup-size bras.

A pretty bra, shows a little cleavage on top but works okay for non-jersey or low-cut tops. The small band is perfect for my small rib cage. Aimee from Providence

cute, comfortable, but this and every bra I've ever bought have the wire up to high under the arm, so i get poked in the pits (not fun) other then that, no complaints! lisa from sicklerville

This is the first bra I have have ever bought in the U.S. that is both supportive and sexy, and I have bought MANY bras. Bras I have bought in the past (32G or FF) have been supportive but much too matronly-looking for me, with no cleavage. This bra creates great natural cleavage without padding. It's awesome for wearing with lower cut tops, but it is comfortable enough to wear every day as a t-shirt bra. It's so pretty and delicate. I own three of these bras. Sarah from Portland, OR
