I have not been paid to write this post. Panache sent me the following items for an upcoming photo-shoot. So I thought I would also review them.
None of the photos in this post have been Photoshopped or filtered.
I’ve been a customer of Panache’s for a long time now. They’ve been one of my go-to, old faithful brands for several years. You can read about my current three favourite DD+ lingerie brands (including why I’m a loyal Panache customer) here.
Love those squishy bits y’all.
I’ve got a few pieces from Cleo now which are all equally cute and comfy.

Thus far, I’ve found that the support and shape the brand gives is amazing. My boobs feel incredibly supported but yet comfortable in these bad boys. Until trying this set (and another which I will be reviewing next) I had one complaint though. In a couple of bras, I notice that I end up with a bit of bulge-age at the top side of my boob, near-ish to my armpit. I’m not convinced that it’s a fit issue, I think it’s more likely to be a consequence of the style of each individual bra. In this style though, this isn’t something I’m having an issue with.
The colour of this one is just… It also comes in black and nude which are both GORGE too but I love the cutesy feel that bluebell has. I don’t think I’ve ever come across lingerie in a colour like this before! I also love the subtle bow details in the embroidery on the cup as well as the pink trim. I’m totally a fan of how Cleo fits. I’ve found that each piece is very true to form. If you have been measured for a particular size and buy something from Cleo in said size, you can be sure that it will fit!
This one is available in a lot of sizes! From a UK 32B up to a 38J.
The briefs are uber sweet too, of course! When I’m wearing this set, I can practically taste Parma Violets! (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you absolutely NEED to!) Hipster briefs are not my favourite personally, I like my knickers to come up a tad higher than they do but that doesn’t mean that they’re not gorgeous! The frill detail is so lush I want to cry. I’m a sucker for a sheer back panel too! I’m wearing a UK size 14.
Next up is one of my favourite sets E.V.E.R, Cleo by Panache’s Della. I’m wearing a UK size 32GG. Can we just talk about matching tattoos and lingerie for a second?!
There isn’t really a single thing I dislike about this set. The colour scheme is just stunning and the contrasting black detailing is so eye catching and sassy. The fit and support is on point, as is the comfort. I hope that Cleo launches this style in more colours later down the line because it’s such a wonderful set! Although the bulge-age issue I mentioned previously is apparent in this set. I want to wear it allllll the time though. The bra starts at a UK 28D and goes up to a 38J.
I bloody love the briefs in this set. They’re not described as high waisted on the website but they sit on my hips comfortably. The suspenders are also detachable. I’m wearing briefs in a UK size 14. They start at a UK size 6 and go up to a 26.
Body positive, unretouched, unfiltered, bullshit free, feminist review of some amazing new @cleobypanache and @lovepanache lingerie I got my hands on coming to iamleyahshanks.com tomorrow! #TBCR #bodyposi #bodypos #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bodyimage #positivebodyimage #loveyourbody #bodyconfidence #bodylove #effyourbeautystandards #beautybeyondsize #beautyhasnolimit #fuckphotoshop #yourbodyisamazing #allwomenarerealwomen #pmm #celebratemysize #selfesteem #selfworth #nofilter #fuckfilters #nomakeup #makeupfree #barefaced #bareface
Next, a set with two different variations of the same bra – Panache’s Idina in the balconnet style and moulded t-shirt style. The t-shirt style comes in black and the balconnet comes in black and a beautiful latte colour. I’m wearing a 32GG in the balconnet here.
I have a real fetish for sheer and lace lingerie so this one is an absolute winner for me. I mean, my love for this bra doesn’t take much explaining does it? Just look at it! This starts at a 30D and goes up to a 38J.
The knickers are just as GAWJUS. They’re high waisted (as I’m sure you can see) and have sheer panels on the sides and butt. It’s odd, feeling so comfortable yet sexy and sassy in lingerie! I’m wearing a UK size 14 in the knickers. They start at a size 6 and go up to a 26.
This is the moulded t-shirt style. I had to sister size this one (go up a back size and down a cup size) so the fit isn’t as good as the others. But regardless, it’s very comfortable and does its job! Not to mention it’s HAWT.
