As soon as I saw the Autumn Winter pieces from Panache I knew I would be in trouble! There were so many sumptuous pieces in the collections, especially from Cleo:
Not long after the pieces were released a few reviews popped up – one from Invest In Your Chest one from Undressed To Impress and one from Elena Davies and they all sang the praises of this gorgeous number, the Marcie bra:
Beautiful red underwear in a large range of sizes is NOT something to be sniffed at and so I decided to give Miss Marcie a go.
As I had been measured as a 36HH at a recent Panache event I asked to try that size during a recent trip to Bravissimo. Sadly they only had a 36H which, as expected, was a bit too small. Not to be put off I went ahead and ordered a 36HH online.
Strangely enough the 36HH was just too big for me. The upper part of the cups gaped slightly and it was slightly visible under clothing.
However, the bra itself is stunning and the fit elsewhere was spot on. The cup detailing is extremely pretty, and the cute contrasting blue bow is divine.
Marcie has half adjustable straps that I didn’t even need to alter. The two hooks and eyes felt ok, as you may know I do favour three.
The cups gave me a jaw dropping uplifted rounded shape – I can see why my fellow bloggers thought so much of it!
Sadly, Marcie and I are not meant to be, which is a great shame as I heard a rumour that a turquoise version of the set is to be released next year, and as some of you may know turquoise is my absolute FAVOURITE colour! However I would still give Marcie a go in your usual Panache size, although you may find you need to go down a cup size depending on how it sits and fits.
Panache – you know how to make us larger breasted women feel special, supported and sexy.
