Fall/Winter lingerie is out in full swing now, and its always a treat to see what makes it into stores from lingerie market. Panache was a brand I didnt get to visit at Februarys CurveNY, but they are one Ive kept a constant eye on. And their Floris balconette bra is one Ive been very excited about seeing in stores.
Panache is a big name in the full bust bra community. Theyre known for beautiful, lacy styles, with many of their most popular pieces (including this one) going up to a K cup. While I certainly wouldnt use the word dainty to describe Panache, I feel like theres a nice merging of fashion and function here. Its imperative that bras in higher cup sizes have the structural engineering to fit well, but important that they not appear too industrial either. Panache strikes a good balance.
What I like most about the Panache Floris is the colorway, and specifically the use of printed mesh to convey lightness and airiness. The red floral on gray is giving me a very Victorian Era, Jane Eyre kind of vibe, and I like that this is fashionable without being too cutesy or twee (an recurring issue for many full bust bra brands). Theres a sophistication here that can work for a range of tastes.
This bra is available in sizes 30D thru 38K at HerRoom. The matching knicker (there only appears to be a brief available) comes in sizes XS thru 3X. The bra retails for $62 and the panty for $34, which means you can get a beautiful bra set for under $100. In case you havent worn this bra before, I would recommend checking reviews before purchasing, Erica of A Sophisticated Pair wrote an excellent one here.
What do you think of the Panache Floris? If youre fuller-busted, is this the sort of bra youd like to own?
