Sculptresse by Panache

There's no denying it, I have big boobs, always have had, always will have. Over time I've learnt to live with them and accept they are part of me, something I have, in the past struggled with.  That said buying bras is something I find more difficult, infact out of all the clothes I do buy, it is buying bras I find most painful and most stressful.  Why is it that because I have big boobs I should have to pay a lot more for my bras? I often dream of being able to wear those cute little sets in Ann Summers, which is never going to happen.

I have a few must haves when it comes to buying a new bra 

  • It must fit, now that might sound obvious but there are so many women out there who clearly wear the wrong size and it's annoying, so to ensure I am buying the right size once a year at the very least, I go and get myself measured to make sure I do buy the right size.
  • I must like the bra. Well it might fit but if I don't like the style or the colour not to mention the pattern, then I'm not wearing it.
  • Matching knickers.  Yes they must match, I cannot wear a black bra and pink knickers unless those knickers are in some way related to that bra, it's like wearing odd socks, it just feels wrong.
A few weeks ago, the lovely people at Panache sent me this beautiful package and as soon as I opened it I knew I was going to love it:

It is from the Sculptresse Range and it is called Bellise which you can find HERE.  It is described as follows:

"Feel beautiful with Bellise. In an on-trend feathered animal print with subtle feminine detailing this balconnet bra provides an uplifted and supportive shape from a 36-46" back D-J cup. The back straps sit closer together to ensure they stay in position and sit comfortably on the body without slipping. The soft padded straps are fully adjustable, ensuring maximum comfort and adjustability for your perfect fit".


Wearing it, fear not I am not sharing those photos with you, it is really comfortable, particularly under my boobs where it sits flat against my chest and then on the top of my shoulders where the straps sit so comfortably without digging into my skin.  Across my back again the clasp sits flat against the middle of my back and again doesn't dig into my skin.  The cups are also the perfect size, they don't pinch, squash or hang loose, they literally give me the support that I crave and I feel confident when wearing it, those girls with the same problem I have will know what I mean by that, but there is nothing worse than buying a bra and it doesn't give you any kind of support and instead allows too much movement which becomes painful.

For me, this is an absolutely perfect bra and it is accompanied by a pair of knickers which not only match the bra but are also just as comfortable to wear, they fit nicely and don't feel tight anywhere. I just love them and I love the bra.

To purchase a bra from this range it will cost around £36 which is the amount I would usually be paying from places such as Debenhams anyway and you can find a local stockist on the Panache website by clicking here.

                          I you have a large chest like me, where do you buy your underwear from?

  2. These look really pretty. I must pass this onto my friend. SHe has big boobies too and we both struggle and find it's either Debenhams or M&S...Yes all of 2 shops to choose from. I find M&S's straps too big even if I tighten them to the max, So I am a huge debenhams fan.
