Panache Bloggers Day with Mish Online

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited along by Mish Online to their Blogger Day to introduce local Bloggers in Cornwall to the Panache brand.

A warm welcome awaited us

I was joined by fellow Bloggers:

Elle from Garden of Eden
Sam from Sofa Dodger
Stevie from A Cornish Mum
Jo from Slummy Single Mummy
Hannah from Cupcake Mumma Blog

With my fellow Bloggers

We were greeted with lots of sweet treats, including my favourite the Gingerbread Women!


For the first part of the morning, we learnt more about the Panache Brand and how they have been trading since the 1980's providing lingerie in sizes D-K and in addition their Cleo range for a more fashion conscious customer and Sculptresse range for plus sizes. The lovely models which were local customers of Mish Online) gave us a sneak peak of some of the new Autumn / Winter styles, which will be in stock from the end of July.

I love the high waisted pants on this set from the Sculptresse range

This is the Tango set, one of the most popular - a timeless classic but available in Royal Blue for AW 2015

After seeing the collections, it was time for a measure! Now I haven't had my bra size measured since I was about 14 and my Mum dragged me down to BHS and a local lingerie company to be measured - I remember the local company measuring me at a 32D and BHS at a 38B, there was such a difference that I decided to make up my own size! 14 years later and Ive been wearing a 36B for as long as I can remember. So I was slightly nervous to be measured as I thought "I'm not even going to fit into Panache bras, they start at a D and I'm a B!!!"

Here I am in the Maddie Pop T Shirt Bra by Cleo (Panache) in a 34DD

Anyway I was pleasantly surprised as I found out that my size is actually a 34DD in Panache, and after trying on a couple of bra's from the collection I found that this size fit incredibly well. I tried the Maddie Pop T Shirt Bra, the fabric on this bra is very cute and colourful and certainly suited what I would look for in a bra. The quality of the fabric and other materials is also of a very high quality, and I was very impressed by the fitting service on offer by Mish and the ladies.

I think out of all of the collections the Cleo is my favourite. Itt's fun and has a young feel to it. Also I porefer wearing a bra with padding, and although this line is not heavily padded, which is more what I am used to, it was extreamly comfortable and didnt make me feel like I had a flat chest! I also liked how the briefs are available in a pant or thong, so you can choose what you would like.

This bra is actually on sale at Mish Online for only £14.99 which is certainly a good price, take a look and see if they have one left in your size here

We were spoilt with more refreshments in the afternoon!

Mish's handmade Elderflower Cordial, someone pass me the gin!

 We went home with some fab Panache Goodie Bags and a set from the Spring Summer 2015 collection, which I will be reviewing for you!

Look out for my review of the Cleo Minnie Longline set, coming soon!

Overall I had a fantastic day, it was great to meet all of the local Bloggers and friendly team at Mish Online. You can shop all of their collection on the Mish Online webiste.
