Very supportive and attractive bikini
This bikini top is very supportive and nice quality. It stays in place beautifully and the cup fit is nice - nothing pouring out on the sides, no squishing, not loose, and not too tight looking.
I've been back and forth on the material. I like the color but wasn't sure about the pattern. The sale decided it for me and the more I look at it the more pleased I am with my decision to keep it.
Panache is a UK company. Be aware that the cup sizes are different to the American cup sizes - this is unilateral across all UK lingerie/swimwear in relation to the US sizing and not specific to Panache. In the US I wear a 36DD. In Panache swim and lingerie the 36E is a perfect fit so the band size runs true but I have to go up one size larger in the cup.
These suits are made for the larger busted and are by far the best I have found so far (Freya comes in second but they are quite good and also make bra sized bikini tops that are quite supportive).
Remember if you order bottoms that the UK sizing is also different to the USA. I'm an 8 in the USA and order a 12 in the UK. When in doubt, call customer service for advice on the sizing.
I purchased the fold over bottoms and I love them. If I'm feeling a bit shy I can leave them extended the whole way up and get more tummy coverage, but folded down they are super cut too.
Highly recommend, especially with the great sale pricing. It's nice to have a properly fit bikini and not have to worry about what the waves might remove.
