Summer/Fall Fashion Preview: Panache Superbra

Hello Ladies,

In sharp contrast to the Cleo line’s dynamite upcoming collection filled with bright colors and bold prints, Panache Superbra features sophisticated designs and a borderline neutral color palette which blends romanticism, femininity, and whimsy.

While other companies head straight for darker, more traditional fall colors, I love that Panache departed to the pastel pasture instead.  It’s refreshing to see a fall color palette like this one, but to be honest, it’s not to my taste.  Light colors like these tend to wash me out, so I’ll focus more on the Cleo line.  Having said that, I am super excited to try the Envy as I believe it is based on the frame of the Jasmine.  Furthermore, I like that Panache has opened up new basics although I do wish more were available in 28 bands.

    The Envy does look a lot like Jasmine! I can’t remember the term for the geometric pattern they appear to use there.
    I’m excited about Dahlia because it reminds me of Loretta and Confetti- if I can find a fit it will be one of my few unlined bras!

      I think the Dahlia is supposed to be the newer version of the Loretta because the designs are very close. Great use of pattern on both it and the Envy! One of the Porcelain bras is also supposed to have a racer-back converter, but since my sales rep never called to discuss the line with me, I’m not sure which.

        Very interesting and confusing… I made the following post on the Panache UK Facebook site and see what their answer was to me…

        “.Do any of your styles have the same cut, wire shape/width, narrow center gore as the Jasmine without the stretch lace? Because of my soft on top boobs the top portion of Jasmine is a big fail on me but I loved everything else about it. The shape is just fantastic but I need a firmer fit on top. My size is 36J.”
        July 26 at 10:13pm

        ” Panache Lingerie thanks for your enquiry- we are launching a new style Dahlia in August which is based on the same shape as Jasmine but has a rigid embroidered top cup so might offer a better fit for you. It is due to launch mid August and will be showing on our website shortly.” Kind regards, Panache

        So is Dahlia or Envy on the same frame and similar construction as Jasmine? Fingers crossed that one of the styles has the lovely fit and shape as Jasmine with the lace that is so problematic for me.

          Interesting indeed! I had heard some conflicting reports on which bra is supposed to be like the Jasmine, but if I’m looking at the design in the catalog (plus the description), I’d say the Envy is probably a basic version while the Dahlia modifies the stretch lace top. I guess we’ll know for sure once it releases and the reviews come in! 😀

            The more I wear Elomi, the more I crave a less “wide pushing” fit. I find the Renee is slightly better than most about this. I know perfection is elusive and the Elomi side slings are not too great on me as well as the wide center gores. Really hoping that the Tango Accenti and Dahlia will work. Wish Panache would do something about the Tango straps partially adjustable issue. I asked them and they said it was about comfort. I would give up a touch of “comfort” for a more adjustable fit.

            Partially-adjustable straps are a personal pet peeve of mine. I know for some women (oftentimes myself included) that a fully-adjustable strap is not essential, but many of my customers are petite or short-waisted. They need to be able to tighten those straps more than what the bra allows, and then an otherwise good fit/style is tossed out the window. I feel like the sacrifice to comfort would be marginal at best. I honestly can’t say the straps feel more comfortable by having the felted piece there, and you can always use those gel comfort strap converters on any bra in your arsenal.

            I have been a real PITA on the Panache Facebook page recently. I also questioned the strap adjustment issue. Here is the communication and their “reasoning.”

            ” Tango 11 and Tango Luxe fit me well and come in such lovely colors. The one thing that drives me totally nuts is the “half adjustable” straps. Can you shed light on why these styles (and I assume the new Tango Accenti as well) have these type of straps when many other styles don’t? ”
            · · July 21 at 3:59pm

            Panache Lingerie “Many thanks for your query. Tango Luxe & the new Accenti have only ½ adjustable straps because the other half is padded for comfort. They are both part of the Tango family but are made to give a more luxurious option to the basic Tango. Our long running Tango does have fully adjustable straps, with plush backing for extra support & comfort on certain sizes. Hope this helps.”

            Um, I’m looking at a rack of Tangos, and none of the balcony bras has full-adjustable straps. They stop about half-way and transition to the felted ones. There’s a circular ring preventing you from going any tighter . . . unless their definition of “fully-adjustable” differs from mine. 🙁

    I like the geometric pattern on the Envy! I think the Envy/Jasmine type of construction is the only one that I am drawn to in this lineup. Now that I have test driven a bunch of different brands, I am settling into Cleo as MY brand – I am definitely drawn to their fun styles and shape more than the mature elegance of Superbra.

      That pattern is pretty great! It’s so nice to see them transform the Jasmine into a basic too since the prints are not always to everyone’s taste. Cleo excited me the most as well because I’ve become a recent devotee. Plus, I love the brighter colors.

    I wish the Dahlia came in a K cup, it’s different from what you normally see in full-bust brand and I love art deco. Oh well, I’ll probably try the Envy. This Jasmine colourway is my least favourite.

      Astrid, I feel the same way about the new Jasmine. The prints they choose are always hit or miss anyway, but I’m not a fan of the pale pink and paisley. It’s just not my style. 🙁

    Ahhhh I want that new Jasmine! Or any Jasmine, really. 28 bands Panache, where are the 28 bands?! I sound like a broken record haha.

    I am kind of curious about the Tango Accenti though. I’ve never really cared about the Tango bras, but this one looks very sleek.

      Windie, the lack of 28 bands is rather depressing as I think there are some great styles which would work perfectly for the 28 band woman, especially those who cannot wear Cleo. I know they can’t do every style in a size that doesn’t sell as well, but maybe if they offered 28-back women more than just two styles, they’d see a better return.

    I actually really love the new Jasmine colorway. Just wish they made it in 28K; sister-sizing and altering the band resulted in wires that wrapped all the way around to the back of my ribcage and were all stabby. It comes out on my birthday, too. 🙁

      Miss Shapen, how did you alter the band? I’ve heard some good things about tightening the band instead of actually shortening it. The former seems to keep the underwire shape so as to avoid the dreaded stabby feeling. It’s such a shame they won’t include a 28 band as the bra is fabulous!

    I’m actually happy with the Jasmine, just because it seems to be Panache’s practice to only make the bras that fit me in bold, bright colors. This one might actually be neutral enough to work under some of my lighter colored clothing! Now if they’d just make Marcie in a beige…

      I know a lot of people would love to see Marcie in basic colors! The Jasmine colorway is rather pretty, but I’m more of a bright colored person. Even though the collection isn’t to my personal taste, I have a lot of respect for the brand because they tried something new and gave women a more sophisticated, lighter-colored palette this year. It makes all of the pieces stand out more, in my opinion.

    I can’t wait for the Jasmine in that gorgeous pink color. That’s one of my favorite pinks. I’m also looking forward to the Cloris, as it is so pretty- Panache Superbra so rarely does prints that I like, and I like that one. I hear it is based on the Sienna, I hope it is more open in the top.

    Thank you for the link love! I’ve changed my blog name to “Rock the Curves” and my new URL is http://rockthecurves.00goddess.net. Everything after that is the same 🙂

      Thanks for the update, Ms Pris! I’ll add you to our blogroll as well. I totally agree about the Superbra prints. For example, I have heard wonderful things about the Fern, but I have yet to find a print which I like. It’s a shame too because I think some of their better styles (like the Jasmine) suffer because of it.

        I think the Fern always looks like someone’s grandmother’s sofa. Always!

        I really hope Superbra continues to bring in new prints, it is their main weakness as a brand imo. Baby steps, I guess! And thanks 🙂

    Am I the only one who noticed the Massive amount of space between the cups. Most of those gores look wide enough to drive a car down them…That’s frustrating.
    I love Cleo and their narrow gores, but it seems like Panache and I aren’t meant to be.

      Samantha, many of the gores are wider in Panache. Maybe consider the Jasmine? That one is narrower although not quite as narrow as Cleo.
