Amazing bra, very comfortable. Definitely keeps things in place, but without a uni-boob. The only thing that concerns me is that the small hook that converts this to a T-back is plastic..I am not sure what the stability of that will be over time. For anything over a D cup, this is a lot of force being contained; metal would be better, I think. Laura from Virginia

I have just received this bra after waiting for a couple of months for it to come back into stock. I was so excited when I saw it, but could tell right away that the cups would be too small. The bra itself is well constructed and the purple color is so gorgeous I wouldn't mind it peeking out from under a top! Although all my other bras are 34DD's I will be returning this and trying a 34E I am guessing. Kathryn from Bakersfield/CA/USA

I purchased this for my granddaughter, 5'1", age 22 who was wearing 3 support bras while jogging. This bra is so well constructed and comfortable, she needs only it and can wear it every day. The versatile straps are added support so she clips them together, Perfect fit. Thanks so much Marilyn from Boulder City, Nv., USA

The only sports bra I'll ever buy again. Great fit, fabulous support, and cute even on my short and curvy figure! The extra hook at the back to convert it to a T-back is great for when you need a little extra bounce prevention. Love that this sports bra can support me without squishing me! Warning - it is warm and the seams can show through tight workout tops, but that's the trade-off for not bouncing. Carolyn from Urbana/IL/USA

Panache is a new favorite of mine BUT this bra was HUGE! Too big around too deep in front the straps could not be tightened enough! It did not feel like it had much support in fact I think there regular bras offer much more support than this one! The sizing was way off! Sandee from TULSA OK USA

This is a terrific sports bra for a busty gal. It gives excellent support and coverage. It can gap in the middle, so I bought one cup size smaller than I usually wear. I not only wear it to work out in, I also wear it under tees during the day. It looks good without any embarrassing "peek-through". Linda from Mission Viejo, CA

This is a great sports bra! The best I have ever had ...gone are the days of wearing a regular bra and 3 additional sports bras to control my breast when I am at the gym. The only thing is I wish I went a size down so the bra would have held me a little tighter. Can you tell me what a size down from 38GG would be?

HerRoom Response: We are happy to hear that you love this sports bra. It's one of our favorites! A 38GG in Panache would mean that your Universal Cup Size is a 38D7. If you go down in the band size, you will probably need to go up in the cup. So you could try a 36D8 and see if you like that fit better. Niemah from Brooklyn, NY

I was pleased with this purchase! I wore the bra to a Pilates class and it felt awesome. I wear this bra when I am not participating in sports activities. I am going to purchase two more but I wish they were not so expensive. Kenya

This is the best sports bra I've ever owned. It's supportive and still super comfortable. Other sports bras I've had dig into my ribs, but the underwire on this one is cushioned so it doesn't hurt or chafe. The wide straps are also really cushy and I love how they can convert to raceback. In racerback style, it's a little tight in the shoulders, but I don't really wear that style of bra so maybe that's just how they are. Also, no uniboob, no madonna cone boob, just my natural, supported, comfortable shape that looks great under my clothes. And the color is really cute! Melanie from MA

First, this is the most supportive, comfortable sports bra I have ever worn. It actually supports without just smashing, and I can even run without much bounce. However, for me, the cups were slightly big...even though my daily bras are also Panache 34FF. It is only a tiny bit of extra fabric, but it makes the cups seem pointy, giving them a slightly crushable/moldable quality. It isn't enough for me to return the bra, I have been enjoying exercising in it, because it is fitting everywhere but in the very center of each cup (so it looks best if the shirt over it is baggy). I will probably try ordering another in 34F. Jenny from Alexandria, VA, USA

I have been a runner all my life and have purchased many, many sports bra. I must tell you, this is absolutely the BEST sport bra I have ever worn! There is very little bounce, which made me very happy. The individual breast cups and the padding reduces bounce tremendously and holds everything in place. The straps and the underwire are super comfortable and provides perfect hold. I love this bra and have told all my friends about it! Ivy from Miami, Florida

Disappointed. The bra did not tack, it gaped at the top and when worn racer back still cut into the side of my breasts terribly. I returned it and am still looking for a racer back bra that can support the "girls"

Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear about your disappointing experience however I believe there is a solution. Based on your comments, it sounds like the bra was just too small in the cup which is why it wasn’t tacking in the middle (Which it must if you are wearing the right size) along with other issues. Please try going up to H cup and see how that feels, I think you will see how amazing this bra is once you find the correct size. Lisa from Nj

The Panache bra is not what I was expecting. I was so hoping it would work but it was way too big through the chest area! I have a Shock Absorber bra that I bought from HerRoom and it is perfect and so much nicer ! The Anita bras are nice for exercising but I like a racer back.

Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback! I wasn’t sure if you meant that it was too much fabric or too big in the cup. A Sports bra definitely provides more front coverage than a regular bra as its meant to be high impact and prevent any bouncing. It may look like too much of a bra, but I assure you it’s simply fantastic when it comes to support and comfort. Sykesville from Sykesville, MD USA

Bought two bras. Both had the underwire poke out of the middle and dig into chest. Best bra in terms of support, but for the price, the underwires should not move. Very disappointed.

Panache Response: Thank you for your feedback! Style 5021 is really the most amazing supportive sport bra out there for the fuller busted ladies. If your underwire popped out once you started wearing the bra, that’s a damage that we can certainly take care of. Don’t let that deter you from this bra in the future. Taylor from Pittsburgh, PA

As someone with an H/I (D5, D6; US) cup, finding a sports bra has been difficult. I',m also petite, so this doesn't help things. Anyway, I found the Panache to be a decent bra overall in fit and support- little if any bounce. I also found the style and color to be flattering, and the racerback hook is a nice option. However, I can't say all good things because this was not the rights size for me. I have found that the waisteband runs large for me in the Uk brands like Panache and Freya. Even with it on the tighest hook and the straps adjusted all the way, I still had some serious gapping between my breasts, and that it did not rest flat at the top. I'm waiting on the smaller size, 36G. Another thing I found annoying is the way sizing is listed on the tag of the bra. I realize there are different standards out there and that's what the conversion chart is for, but this bra lists the same size for every country of origin. For example, even though my UK size is a FF, it also lists my US size as a FF, and I can tell you, I am nowhere near that in the US standard. In fact, to my knowledge, the size FF is not utilized in the US. I read in a response to another review that reason for the change- at least for Freya- is that women were too confused by the different sizes on the tag. Personally, I find having only one size listed very confusing. I can't just look at the tag and know what size I am in my country, I have to look up a chart. And for those that aren't familiar with the different sizing standards, I imagine this would give them the wrong impression about what size they are. Now when you buy shoes, generally they list the equivalent size for each country, and I've never heard of anyone being puzzled by the various sizes on the label. It all seems pretty stupid to me. Anyway, I finally found a very nice sports bra in Freya 4002. Great Support and comfortable even with the underwire. Just throwing that out there. I would still highly reccomend the Panache with regard to the things I mentioned, and will have a better idea of how it works and fits once the smaller size arrives. Please remember that every women and bra is different. What works for one person may not work for another. If you are taller, or have a larger frame, then you may find this bra runs true to size for you. You may want to order a couple different sizes based on what your size should be, or be prepared to exchange it if a particular size doesn't quite work for you. Kinda goes without saying, but definitely worth considering if you want to avoid the hassel of waiting for the correct size to arrive, or to save on shipping by placing fewer orders. Hope this helps.

The bra fit perfectly at first and I definitely noticed less jiggle. However, after running 6.5 miles during the first week of owning the bra I developed a serious heat rash/chaffing on the under side of my breasts. It is very sore. Cat from Orlando, FL, USA4

I like this bra because it allowed me to workout without the need for wearing 2 sports bras for better support. I was wearing 2 sports bras before and I hated it! This bra supports well and I like how it has a racerback option too! Vanessa from Burleson, Tx

This is really a FANTASTIC sports bra. It makes my old bras look pathetic. Just a note about the sizing, it suggests going down a size in the cup, I would not do this, on me the smaller size was way too small. Although I did opt to get the 28FF instead of the 28G which is what my European size would be. The FF is a tiny bit small but the G would probably be a little too big to wear for exercise (I am a little between sizes). Also I read from someone else's review that the band size runs loose and they went down a size. Since I like my bands to fit very snug I went to a 28 from a 30. Just beware that if you do this it will be TIGHT. It is not too uncomfortable for me but if you are not used to wearing snug fitting bras I would stick with your normal band size.
