The Right Bra // Panache Lingerie

Would it surprise you if I told you that roughly 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size? That's a crazy amount! I was certainly one of those ladies though until I met the lovely Zehra from Panache at the City Girls event recently.
I know it's been a while since I was pregnant but being measured again was just one of those things that wasn't on my mind so I knew that the size that I was wearing was probably not correct. Zehra blew my mind though when she measured me up and told me that I was wearing completely the wrong size! Wearing a properly fitted bra can help you look and feel great so I was thrilled to be sent the Flirtini set in my actual size(!) from the Sculptresse range to try out.  

If you are not familiar with Panache, they are an award winning company who are impressively one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of D plus lingerie. With over 30 years experience, they have built an excellent reputation for fit, technical ability, quality and value for money. I'm going to admit that this is the first time I have tried Panache and I'm really impressed! 

The Flirtini set* comes in the form of a balconnet bra and midi brief in the most ridiculously cute cherry spot print with black lace. It's pretty fabulous and completely my kind of style. The design of is totally evocative of old school Hollywood glamour yet it is equally fresh and fearlessly fun. I absolutely love it!

The whole of the Sculptresse range has been designed for ladies with curves and the fit really is very flattering whilst being super comfortable to wear. When you're a lady who wears a larger cup size, you're pretty much ruled out in most high street shops so it can be super difficult to find pretty underwear that is both affordable and looks amazing. Panache seem to tick all the right boxes though and I'm now so tempted by some of the other sets in the range! 

I love underwear that doesn't take itself too seriously but at the same time, does what it is supposed to do and supports you where it should! This set is a complete joy to wear and yes, it really is comfortable too! I've noticed that my back does not hurt half as much now when I'm wearing this bra, especially when carrying a toddler around too! Hooray for properly fitting underwear!  

* I was sent this product to review but all words are my own.


  1. WOw, this is such a beautiful set. I've never shopped at Panache before. I need to have another measurement taken, I think.

  2. Glad you love Flirtini, it was a pleasure to meet you! x

  3. Love that underwear set! I must say I'm pretty good at always getting measured before buying underwear as it saves back and forth to the shops returning and trying things.
