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

Finally a cute bra in young, fresh colors that shapes and supports for larger sizes! Submitted from TheUndies.com

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

Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback. It’s very important to know your correct size when buying any bra. 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.

Cup size too small. Returned for exchange for a larger size.

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

Fits well. It hurts after only 4 hours of wear. The top back of the underwire is digging into me. Of course it was a clearance color so I'm stuck with it. I don't recommend. Delamaine from Seattle Eastside, WA, USA

I love the look of this bra, but the band was so tight that I had marks on my back by the end of the day. So disappointed because I can't send it back (it has been worn)... :( Miss Information from Los Angeles, CA

I love this bra! I am a true 32G, just fitted recently to double check and this bra is not only beautiful, it's supportive and comfortable! I have it in three colors and can't wait for the next color series! Bonnie from Asheville, NC, USA

Constructed well and would be the best fit for E/W pointers who are not overly full on top. This bra fits very much like Panache's Tango line but has the lighter mesh instead of the very firm, supportive fabric of the Tango. Band felt true but cup seemed small. I may have been able to wear a cup size up in this but the fabric was a little irritating and without more support on the sides it just wasn't worth the cost. For fuller cups and small bands who like the look of this bra and don't mind a little bounce in thicker straps I would suggest Freya's unlined sectioned cup bras. For women who like a very firm bra and don't mind a long underwire try the Tango by Panache. Megan from Wisconsin

Makes them round and holds them up where they should be. Pretty and flattering BUT at 32 H, we do need extra back support - only two hooks? So - this one would be pure perfection if it had 3 or even 4 hooks at the back and fully adjustable straps. Vlatka from Zagreb, Croatia

Panache has become my favorite brand and HerRoom my best friend. I have never had a favorite 'brand' in anything before. The fit is perfect for someone with my build. I am very full busted, by that I mean wide at the base, rather than prominent. There are no fitting charts that are even the least bit helpful to me. I have a 30 inch chest and a 39 inch bust. All of the charts I have read make me a 34 D3, that doesn't work for me. In that size I end up with 4 breasts, two in the cup and two over the cup. If you are built like me and have a very full rounded bust then I suggest you subtract your actual chest size from your bust measurement rather than your band size. That worked well for me. Panache, Fantasie and some Elle Macpherson's are designed for rounder busts. I really hope this is helpful. These brands give me some separation and I end up with an hourglass figure and avoid the 'uniboob' look. Violet from Las Vegas, NV, USA

Love this bra! Got it in white and it is super sexy. It also gives really nice soft shape. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because the underwire tends to come up really high and can be a little pokey. Great for support and shape but takes a bit of getting used to. geli from durham, nc

Fits true to size, the delivery service was great. Although the item was more than I wanted to pay it was worth the money. The correspondence from HerRoom was responsive. I have purchased items at an earlier time and was also satisfied. Maryanne from Westwood, NJ

Although I ordered the same size as other bras from the same manufacturer, both the band and the cup were too small. Fabric was itchy. Will be returning. Rheesa from San Diego CA

It's difficult to find nice pretty bras when you are naturally large like I am. This bra is super cute, fits well and hold me up and in place. :) Sheri from CA

This bra is awesome. I love it. Fits great and is sooo pretty! Even gives nice cleavage like the Panache Plunge. It is a lacy fabric with no padding, so will be a little nipply but it is beautiful and peppy! Great support for ladies with larger breasts! Kelly from USA

The sides fit fine, as I have no side boob to support. However, being all my boob tissue is all up front and stretchy (breast fed 2 kids and workout to maintain a nice figure) which the bra does not fix. The support is not where I need it and the stretchy skin on top still comes up easily with arm movement and gives the 4 boob effect. Not exactly smooth under any shirt. Perhaps I should take a cast of my breasts and send it to a company that will find or make a bra to fix my problem. Marlene from Newark

I love this bra. It is supportive. It is stunning. It is sexy. It is light and airy. It is comfortable and although it pushes up, it minimizes on the sides. My husband nearly jumped out of his skin when he saw me in it, too. Buy it. Megan from DE
