Finally, my last post about Curve A/W16—this week it’s all about Panache and Eveden, the two biggest brands of the big bust world. Darlene and I got to visit the Eveden showroom again this season, and even though I was sick and had to leave earlier than Darlene I still took enough photos that I could have made multiple posts about Eveden alone! But let’s ease into things with Panache first, of whom I took slightly fewer pictures…
Honestly, what I was most excited for this season were the new colors in Panache Sport. So many of them have amazing trim and/or interior colors. I realize no one sees the interior of a sports bra except the owner, but as someone who frequently dresses like a walking box of crayons, excites me nonetheless!
Next up, swimwear! Since autumn and winter are a slow season for swim, there aren’t that many offerings in general, but I really liked what Cleo had to offer:
Next up, Cleo bras:
As usual, Panache Regular didn’t capture my attention as much, but there were some highlights:Panache Black only had four new items, but I was smitten with two of them:
Finally, some random Panache news: They’ll be introducing a bridal collection come spring/summer 2016 (that’s this August). One thing they’re working on with the current season (and moving forward) is more consistency in fit across all the different lines. So if you wear 28GG in Cleo (hello!), you’ll take 28GG in Panache, Panache Black, and Panache Sport as well. As usual, I asked if there are any plans to make swimwear based on the Panache sports bra and the answer was no, but this time I was told that they actually did try that early on and it didn’t sell. Darnit! I want a Panache sport bikini!
Here we go with a million photos, starting with Fantasie…
Next up, my old standard of Freya:
Freya is introducing a whole new selection of sport items, in a color combo that I absolutely must own:
On to Freya swimwear! Many of the bikini tops for this season offer convertible straps that can be worn as cross-back, regular bra-style, or tied in a halter, and there are lots of mainstream trends incorporated into the offerings:
Phew! And that’s all for Curve…until the next season, of course!
