Moda Lingerie Show: Cleo, Sculptresse & Sport by Panache AW15 Collections

22 Mar

When Panache is a great staple for anyone entering the full-bust world, there are plenty of different choices inside the brand for different tastes and sizes. Today I am going to talk about the Panache sub-labels Cleo, Sport and Sculptresse which all have a very distinct look to them. Let’s start with Cleo which is probably one of your favourite brands as well – this sub-label caters to young Panache customers with quirky prints and cute colours. The sizes with Cleo go up to J-cup and some styles start now from B-cup

Breeze (C-H cups), Mimi (C-H cups), Kali (D-J cups), Kali Babydoll (D-J cups), Marcie in Burgundy & Nude (B-J cups), Minnie (B-J cups) and Lottie (D-J cups).

Prints have always been Cleo’s strength and they didn’t disappoint me this season either. The shades were a bit darker than with spring season (obviously) but I did like the way they were used and combined to brighter colours, like with the new Lottie balconette. The Aztec print was quite different, and got big thumbs up especially from my fellow blogger Anna from Bras and Body Image. When it comes to prints though I like a more subtle look, so the cutesy Navy/Yellow Minnie was definitely a winner for me! I also really liked the splash of yellow which seems to be my ultimate favourite colour at the moment (ok who am I kidding, it’s my fave colour EVERY spring).

Even though subtle and playful prints are more my things, I found myself falling in love particularly with the Breeze longline which comes in a colour-clashing floral print. A piece someone like Rihanna would quite possibly wear! Also, I am a sucker for longlines, so what can you do. I am always up for one in my size! The Marcies and Kalis were again absolutely adorable and I love how Cleo keeps making the Kali in such bright neons season after season. The tangerine orange is a great shade but I do have to admit that the babydoll is soooo cute I could not choose either one over another – have to have them both in my drawers!

Panache Sport Non-Wired in Grey and Wired in Coral and Pink

Well now is time for the one of the biggest announcements I will make on blog this spring! The Panache Sport Wired will go up to J-cup starting from next autumn! I am so proud of Panache for taking the feedback and making this happen as it has been highly requested by their customers. However, the only band sizes with J-cups will be 32 and 34, so they are starting slowly but surely with the bigger cups. The 28 and 30 backs will still be going up to H which is a shame but the 36 band will go up HH. I so hope this will make some of your lives a lot easier and that Panache will start adding biggers sizes to their smallest band sizes as well, when the demand gets higher and the bigger cups start to sell! The new shades of coral and pink are super cute and and will add a dash of colour to your autumn workouts.

Chi Chi (D-HH cups), Charisse (D-J cups), Bunny (D-H cups), Flirtini (D-H cups + 34) & Kitty (D-HH cups)

When it comes to the Panache Sculptresse line I’m always a bit jealous. I mean, I can’t have all those pretty bras because dang they don’t come in my size. The Sculptresse line has so far been a range from 36 bands and up but luckily Panache has decided to add some 34 bands as well (still not helpful to me but ya can’t have it all!) with the Flirtini and Kitty styles, pictured above. I so hope that these band sizes will do good as well and Sculptresse will make some more 34 backs in the future!

When it comes to styling, I am a sucker for this flirty and girly range that is kind of sister label to Cleo more than the regular Panache range. Sculptresse range plays with the same vivid colours and interesting prints but to be honest, I like it’s out-of-box perspective even more than Cleo’s. This might be due to the mermaid vibes this collection sports alongside the regular Panache range – the teals, petrols, stars and scallops are my thing and will win my heart over anytime. If I needed to pick a favourite, the Charisse would be a lovely number to see in my size as well. All of the news styles, Bunny, Charisse and Kitty were nice additions to the original collection though and any of them would have a place in my bradrobe!

How did you like the new Panache sub-label collections – any favourites? I would love to know! Also, if you have any particular questions about sizes or anything else, do let me know in the comments. Note that these styles were not all Panache will be offering next season, as there will be some basic styles on offer as well 😉

    I always find myself snitten by the Sculptresse for some reason. I’m so sad that they don’t do small bands 😦

    I’m turning 44 this year but my tastes are pretty much the same as when I was 18. I think I took a dislike to animal prints when I was about 8 or 9. I’ve also been a gothy/metal/alternative type person since I was a teen so I haven’t need to wear a pale coloured bra since I was in secondary school and had to wear white school shirts. When I was younger (18-25) I mostly wore black bras from Marks and Spencer. I’ve never ever been one for cutsey bras, even as a teenager, I preferred a certain level of sophistication. Colour-wise I generally prefer strong colours, jewel tones and black. I’m generally not a fan of most floral prints although one or too catch my eye. I also find that I’m drawn to very minimalist styles like the Claudette Dessous, classic sophistication like the Panache Dahlia in black – on my wishlist – (I love Art Nouveau and Art Deco) or full on, over the top, extravagant lace and embroidery.

    I have three Sculptresse bras at the moment, the Chi Chi in pink/orange, the Paradise and Flirtini in navy blue with white spots. I got them for a ridiculously low price so the aesthetics were less important. The Paradise is probably my favourite in terms of aethetics.

    All that said, the new Chi Chi looks better for me colour-wise and I might well get one because of its luxurious feel. The Charisse just doesn’t click for me in that blue but might in a different colour. I love the look of Bunny and Kitty but Flirtini is absolutely a must have for me. I know Chi Chi is based on Jasmine and I’ve found that Flirtini and Paradise have a similar fit. Do you know if Bunny, Kitty and Charisse have similar cuts?

    I like the new colours of Kali and Marcie but I haven’t tried those cuts yet (I’m a 38FF/G).

      Hiya Iloeren! When it comes to the cuts of the new styles, I think the differ a bit from the trusted “Jasmine” construction. Overall the pattern seems to be quite similar but the upper panels are not made of stretch lace which makes a huge difference to how it will fit different breast shapes.

    I really love how vibrant the Panache collections are this season … I plan to be a neon turtle this spring and these will do just the job!
