I know I said that I would write a review for my new Panache Andorra bras; and I will get to that, tomorrow. I’m at work full-time this week and I am a nanny. I don’t know that the kids need to see pictures of me in my bra!
With that being said, I am slowly working on rebuilding my bra collection with sizes that actually work for me. I purchased the Andorra in a 40J, and I love it, but it definitely is just a special occasion bra, as I feel like, even with the stretchy lace, I still get some slight bubble-age with my larger right breast. Last night, I ordered this gorgeous bra:
The Panache Tango Luxe in Ocean. I ordered it on eBay from the UK. The seller did not have a 40JJ available, so I went ahead and ordered a 40K. When I tried the Ariza, the 40J wasn’t big enough in the cup. I figure, honestly, that in the case of my right breast, bigger is better. I was able to score this beautiful bra for only $23.20 and that’s including shipping.
I also ordered this other gorgeous lovely:
The Panache Ariza in Violet Mix. As mentioned, I tried this bra on at Intimacy in a 40J. I love the color and the cut of this bra, but again…the 40J just was not big enough for me. Like the Tango Luxe, I ordered this on eBay in a 40K. That may seem like overkill, but I just feel as though it’s better to err on the side of caution. A bra that is too big on the cups (but not overly big – as I doubt I will have any wrinkling in the cup, really) is far better than a bra that is too small, at least in my opinion. I was able to get this beauty for only $28.00 including shipping. **Combined, the two bras cost less than ONE of my Andorra’s that I purchased at Intimacy**
So, out with the old in with the new, right?
I went through my closet on Monday and I have 23 bras that I need to sell/get rid of. How does one amass a collection of 23 bras you ask? I think, more than anything else, over the years I have been on the search for a bra that truly fit and was comfortable. Most of the bras that I have fit at some point, and all are still comfortable (as most are Lane Bryant bras which are extremely comfortable and rarely, if ever, rub me and make my skin raw).
Here’s my list including asking prices…Most bras are either NEW without tags, or used in excellent condition.
