Style, Sass, We Got Panache

Since finding out I was a “large” bra size, I have constantly been on the look out for lingerie that wasn’t just supportive and in my price range, but that was pretty. It’s pretty awesome to go to work wearing your boring office clothes knowing that you have something pretty and slightly ridiculous underneath. I’m not talking about sexy lingerie, but just stuff you can wear every day that isn’t uncomfy but still looks awesome.

Ashamedly, Panache wasn’t a brand that I had looked very much at. When looking at lingerie, I was looking at the high street stores like Boux Avenue, then brands like Freya, but I just never looked much further. How silly.


Panache (very kindly!) sent me the Ariza design and it’s beautiful. I always like to have a matching set – it just seems wrong not to match! I love the colours in this set – a beautiful bright purple with bright pink trim (I think you can tell from last weeks outfit post how much I like to wear bright pink!). Wearing a matching set can help to make me feel a little more confident in certain situations, as strange as that sounds!


I often complain about the lack of choice for people in a DD – H range, but I realised this week how lucky we are to have brands like Panache offering such gorgeous designs for the larger cup – I went with my bff to find her a maternity bra (in a J cup…J!) and no matter what the size was, all of the bras available were pretty ugly. I’m so glad that cone shaped, unflattering bra’s aren’t our only choice thanks to brands like Panache!

    Great post.
    I was measured at Rigby and Peller on Saturday (an amazing experience that I would recommend to EVERY woman). I have discovered that I have been wearing a very wrong bra size my whole life. I thought I was a 32A but am actually a 30DD!
    I need to throw out all my old bra’s and start again!

      Oh wow, I’d love to visit Rigby and Peller! I went from a 34B to a 32E, most people I know are at least a DD, which is why it’s weird there isn’t more choice!
