Panache – Sophie – 10H & 12 (maternity)

Same bra, different size.

That’s right, your eyes do not deceive you. You have seen this bra reviewed here before. Sophie was one of the few bras I really enjoyed wearing, so as my postpartum body kept changing I continued to wear her in my new size.

The Sophie nursing bra is a non wired design made for pregnancy & nursing. It has 3 section cups which drop down & an internal side sling support which stays permanently attached. This side sling is where most of your shape & forward projection comes from. If this is your first time trying maternity bras, you’re immediately going to notice how different your breast shape looks, especially under clothing. Non wired bras try their best, but the reality is that on a bust as big as mine, the only way to achieve my desired lifted look is with wire. These boobs don’t defy gravity & never will, but I know my beautiful wired bras will be waiting for me when I finish breastfeeding. That’s half the fun of maternity, your body is constantly changing & adapting, so we just roll with the punches & keep getting refitted.

This design is one of the more attractive styles in the full bust maternity market. There are heaps of cute brands out there for a smaller bust, but like most things, that ends at around a G cup. I was drawn to this style because it didn’t look like any of the other bras & (bonus points) had matching briefs. The white lace looks a bit vintage inspired, with its floral embroidery & scalloped edge. It is laid over a beige cotton fabric which shows through. This sets it apart from most basic bras. The back of the bra is the same as everything Panache makes, basic mesh. Like all maternity bras it has 6 rows of hooks to accommodate fluctuations in size. All reviews I have read about this bra is that the cup size runs small & I agree with this comment.

The matching briefs (shorts) are a great addition to the set. They are well made, have great coverage & are comfortable to wear. The sizing is generous.
