Collections, collections… Panache

So, what can you put on your boobs? What are the brands that produce so “huge” bras that can accommodate G, H or K cups with wahtever band???    The brand I would like to introduce to you today is Panache – British company that produces bras in full range of sizes, with cups from D to K and back sizes from 28 to 40. They are also planning to introduce a line of bras for very small breasts – Panache Atlantis. As they say on their website: “Atlantis offers solution products for the smaller bust. This liquid filled collection is exclusively designed for cup sizes A-DD. Atlantis promises to increase the appearance of the bust by a whole cup size and has recently been revolutionised with new shapes and technology, proving that Panache’s expertise can reach beyond the D plus market”. We can only hope that these cups will be accompanied by 28 and 30 bands, as the market is already full of 32-38 A-DD bras…

The first line I’d want to speak about is Panache Superbra. In this line, virtually each bra goes from D to K cup. The back sizes also come in full range – from 28 to 40. One of their most popular bras from this line is Tango Balconnet (also available in plunge). This everyday basic bra comes in four colours at the moment (black, white, beige, red), you can also find some purple ones on sale in Bravissimo. While I admit that it’s not one of the most beautiful bras ever made, it’s recommended as a “starter” bra for women and girls who have  just discovered their real size and how a bra should fit them.  Other styles fom Superbra, IMHO much nicer than Tango, are Ariza and Eliza – 30-40 D-K. You can buy Eliza in ivory, black or pink,  Bravissimo still has some cobalt blue ones on sale either. If you browse through British ebay you can also find some teal, chocolate, purple or fuchsia ones from older collections. Ariza’s available in white, black and peach at the moment. Bravissimo also has a mulburry one, and browsing through ebay can show you that older collections had a lot of other colours – such as light aqua, teal and gold or ivory and peach… One thing that I would like to “warn” you about concerning these two styles, is that starting from GG, it starts to have an additional layer of fabric on the cups,which means they stop to be half sheer…:( Apparently Panache still doesn’t know that 30GG or 28H are not really such breasts that they require additional amount of fabric… Fortunately, this can be solved quite easily if you just have scissors and you’re determined enough:) Actually, even if you cut off the entire double layer and leave Eliza or Ariza completely sheer they still provide good support. However, it is possible to find a Panache bra that is still semi sheer at GG or even H cup (supposedly) … I’m talking about  Confetti 28-38 D-K. You can choose from black and white, mind you, there are also Confetti thong bodies (28-38 D-H), Confetti strapless as well as Confetti basques 28-38 D-G. Browsing through lingerie stores and ebay you may also come across black and gold Confetti isn’t it nice? I have it:).  Another interesting bra from Panache is Evie (black, ivory and nude) – the only strapless bra available up to H cup at the moment. Even though (as you see) it’s built up a bit too high at the central gore (which excludes low cleavage), it provides a good support and until Effuniak comes up with her strapless bras, Evie is the only possibility for G+ women to wear strapless tops.

The other line I would like to introduce to you is Cleo by Panache. Compared with Superbra this line is much more colourful and lively (just like Freya). If you like sunny colours, for sure you’ll love this buttermilk George which is also available in violet/pink at Bravissimo. E-bay browsing can also show you colours from last season – coral, green, white/tourquise. What about a Frances bra with these beautiful, girly multicolor flowers? And just to remind you that these balconet styles come from 28 -38(40) D-J cups. There are also other styles from this brand such as a plunge and padded bras, though they are not available in such a wide range of sizes. For example,  Jamie comes only from 28 to 38 back size and from D to H cup and Jo is avaiable from 28-38 D-G only:(

And finally the line of padded bras from Masquerade – bandeaus, half-cups, plunges. Most of these bras give your boobs a shape of “apples in a basket” and are high on the wish list of a lot of bramaniacs. Both this year and this year this brand  came on top in “Sexiest bra of the year” contest, where bramaniacs vote and choose the most tempting bra of a given year. Last year the voting brought big victory to Antoinette in D-G category – first free places were occupied by 3 colour versions of this  bra… Just to mention, 4th place was Masquerade Coquette and 6th place is Masquerade Hestia.    This year Masquerade bras also won in A-D category – first place belonged to a tourquise Georgiana, in DD-G you could find Maia, Georgiana and Antoinette (again). However it wasn’t as staggering as a year ago…   Do I need to add here that older styles are available on British Ebay?

2100 collection of Masquerade  also has Georgiana – this time in orange (I confess, I feel tempted…, my other orange bra is already too small for me due to migration(I assume you read the brafitting know how section and you know what migration is)).  Edit: latest news(09.04) – there’s another colour of Georgiana on Bravissimo (got an impression it’s exclusive for them only) – green apple… It’s just cute:)))    Another bra from this collecion that I’m trying ro resist to buy is Inca  an almost perfect beige bra if it wasn’t for a pattern (according to some of bramaniac)…  You get Maia too, which comes in tourquise this spring and summer… and a plunge bra of Estepona in green-grey-white and several others which you can see at Masquerade website. A little snag at the end – bras in this line only goes up to a G cup (from D) and band sizes come from 28-38. And now good news – starting next year Masquerade is going to be produced in G+ <yes yes yes>  – finally our prayers were heard…;)
