Over the last few seasons one of my favorite full-bust brands, Panache, has done a tremendous job of consistently innovating and developing new styles in new size ranges. While not all stick around (I don’t see a new colorway for Georgia coming up in A/W16, for example), some are so successful that they become permanent additions to the Panache roster. One such success is Jasmine, a runaway best-seller that not only returns in multiple fashion prints each season but which will also be available in basic colors as of the Fall/Winter 2016 season.
Clara is a similar success story. First introduced in 2013 and loosely based on the brand’s core Andorra style, Clara is widely adored. With winningly elegant colors for the satin base and stretch lace top cups for a flexible fit, this is another style that has expanded to basic colors, even as new fashion colors appear each season. You can find the basic beige and charcoal/black colorways in the full size range at Nordstrom, but while having basics is nice, what makes Clara really special is the incredibly beautiful fashion colors that appear each season. I’ve loved nearly all of them, from the original Moonlight to striking Black/Gold to this season’s vibrant Red/Gold. This is a really fantastic style for Panache that feels grown-up and sophisticated. While it’s not the best match for my body (sob), it works well for many, and I hope it sticks around for a long time to come.
Oh, speaking of fabulous colorways, let’s talk about this:
This is the brand-new Duck Egg Blue colorway for Clara, and IT’S SO PRETTY.
IT’S PRETTY HERE TOO.
I’M BASICALLY DEAD IT’S SO PRETTY.
If Clara works well for you, the colors of 2016 are drop dead gorgeous. Get on that.
Clara is available in sizes 30-38 D-J (D, DD, E, F, FF, G, GG, H, HH, J), and brief sizes XS-XXL. The Duck Egg Blue color is available for purchase at:
and many other fantastic lingerie boutiques. If you’re looking for reviews, definitely check out Holly’s review of the Black/Gold version over at The Full Figured Chest.
