This bra fits fairly well but is very stiff so it creates a "visable shelf line" across your garment when worn. The jury is still out for me on this one. Julia from Auburn, AL

This is a gorgeous bra. I am one of those girls who is 'stacked-on'top' and this bra holds me in so nicely. And it looks beautiful on. However, I am narrow shouldered and the straps always slide, no matter how I adjust them. Also, I have only one top that this bra looks good with. Its a deep v-necked light material blouse. My sweaters and tees, the bra looks a bit bulky underneath. So, I guess I need some more shirts. Plus, I am always aware of 'wearing' the bra. I'm not used to under-wires. There is more structure to it then the bras I usually wear. Partly this is me getting used to it. I'm going to keep this bra because it is so pretty. But, still looking for something to go under t-shirts and sweaters. Carmen from Seattle, WA USA

Though this bra's beauty was very alluring, in trying it on, I realized the bra, though fitting, managed to force my breasts into an awkward square profile shape, and make them appear smaller in general. This was not shown on the website. Like I said I was tempted to get it, just because it was so gorgeous but I'm not liking the weird shape. Caitlin

'Armorall' bra! Lovely cut. I will review again when replacement comes, I had to send this one back. The cups were huge on me. Can't really remember right now which cup sizes I ordered and exchanged for. If this one doesn't boost the girls, don't know what will! Soft inside band feels wonderful. Grams from UT

Love the look of the bra, too much material on top, I need to send it back for a smaller size. Julie from Utah

I LOVE this bra! Purchased this in the ivory color when it was on sale and just recently, after two years of frequent wear, the wire started poking through and I had to retire my favorite bra. Very pretty and perfect support, plus it was comfortable! I would definitely recommend and would purchase again. Leah

I found the wide-set straps to be just too wide and seemed to scrape at my armpit area. The cups being three paneled, they didn't seem to conform to my breast shape and underneath any clothes you could see the bumpiness of the lace up top and the seams of the cups. While it's a beautiful bra, it just wasn't practical for me and I exchanged it for a bra that I ended up keeping. Lynn from Athens, GA

It runs SUPER small. I wear a 28FF in almost every bra on the planet, except this one. It was at least 2 sizes too small. I have not yet received the 28GG, so I don't know how it will compare. I gave this bra 3 stars because I love the balconnet style, and it felt like in the proper size it would be super supportive. I really hope that I can come back and revise this review once the larger size comes in, fitting perfectly.

Masquerade by Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate that you are going to still try a larger cup size and hope to hear from you! Sometimes with the molded cups, it’s always a good idea to go up a cup just because the mold always tends to fit smaller in the cup. La Suarez from Los Angeles, CA

I really have a hard time finding ANY bra that fits, this one fits just ok. I don't have the side spillage that I normally do with all the other bras that I have purchased. The only problem so far is that it gaps just slightly at the top, but if I were to go down a size, then I would have the side spillage. All the other bras that have been recommened to me have always been unpadded bras and I like the comfort of a padded bra and so far this has been the only one that has given me the push up and comfort that I have been looking for. Just not the "perfect" bra yet.

Panache Response: Thanks for your feedback! I think you are well on the way to the perfect bra! You might just need a bit of “scoop and swoop” to get the perfect fit! Reach into your cup with the opposite hand - reach into your right cup with your left hand, and vice versa. Slide your hand under the root of your breast tissue toward the bottom and back of the cup, and bring it up and forward into the cup, basically filling your cup. That will make the breasts fall in the right place and fill out the gap you were talking about. Got to do this every time you put on any bra! Mindy from Century, FL USA

the band and cup seems to fit a smidge larger on this bra compared to a very similar style I ordered at the same time. Big enough to notice but not so big as to matter to much. however by the end of the day my breasts seemed to have filled the gap...ok, interesting...The two bras-same size similar style, was ordered at the same time but this was back ordered thus came three weeks later and the difference may be explained by slight weight loss?? I hope...probably not, lol, the other one still fits better. Melissa from United States

Just wow! So pretty yet supportive, very soft, extremely comfortable. Almost practical, too, as it provides good show-through coverage, the seams are pretty smooth and the lace is minimal. Sizing is tricky in this line, but I'd advise not sizing down in the band or cup if you're between sizes. Lynn from FL

This is THE bra, my favorite bra for support--so that my breasts go into the portion of the dress with darts in it, so that my breasts are lifted up enough to show that I do in fact have a long torso. My favorite balconette bra had been discontinued, and I'd been searching. I have a slim torso but large breasts (and they're real, NOT implants) and so support is an absolute must. This bra does everything you want ("lift and separate," as the old commercial says) and also has tiny, attractive, silky straps, so that if they show in a tank top or wide neckline, they still look attractive, not like a part of a harness. Basically, this gives you maximum support, a good shape, and still feels like sexy lingerie. I hope this one doesn't get discontinued. It will be one of my 2 standards, for a long time, I hope.

I bought this bra and it is my favorite of all the Panache bra's I have tried so far. There is no pull on my shoulders at all and I go all day without feeling like I am wearing anything. Being busty, I feel like I won the lottery when I found about Panache bras and got in the right size. HerRoom has been fantastic and I know I can order a Panache 34F and it will be great - this is just the greatest! Shannon from Salt Lake City, UT 84106

I bought this in my size and the band is way to small it takes 2-3 extra bands just to get it to fit. Once you get the bra to fit the cups feel awkward giving a push up feeling up your neck feeling. The straps where the plastic loop is scratches and gets annoying. Now I have a $70 bra sitting in my drawer that's not going to be warn. Guess I know now why its on its sale and non returnable. The only good thing about this bra is that it's pretty. I know I didn't order the wrong size.

Panache Response: How unfortunate to hear that you aren’t pleased with the bra. We haven’t had any issues with this style running so small, so I wonder if it was a mislabel. Harlequin collection was created to offer gorgeous and well fitting bras that feel great and look amazing. This style has a true balconnet shape with very light padding in the cup that does provide quite an uplift. If you feel that your bust is all the way up to your neck, I would suggest going up a cup size. Whilst this bra may not be your every day bra because it is rather embellished, it could absolutely serve as the date bra or still be worn during the day under many clothing options. D.B from UT
