I caught this one on sale on Figleaves, but have to send it back, sadly. Bands in Panache/Cleo can run tight, so I thought I’d give it a shot- it was 34FF as opposed to my ‘standard’ 32G.
Design and Looks-
I like myself molded cups and vertical seams, as they tend to give me a lifted and round shape, which this did. The color is a dark pink with fun rainbowish zigzags. I’m not usually a pink person, but with some black and yellow I thought it a rather jazzy number. Straps are fully adjustable (yay!) and have complementary zigzag texture (an interesting design detail).
The 34 band felt fine for a new bra, but it was extremely stretchy and thus would probably wear out quickly for me, so I’d need a 32. The real issue is the cup, which was definitely a size too big (space gap in the top) even after various scoops-and-sets. I would say the cup runs large and the band more true to size. The fabric was comfortable and non-scratchy.
Additional photos are in the Bratabase. If I found this in a 32FF (figleaves is sold out at that price), I’d give it a try again because it’s a fun and comfy bra.
