Panache Black ‘Aria’ & Fiore ‘Celia’ Hold Ups

November 3, 2015

Sexy lingerie isn’t prolific in the full bust market but thankfully there is a saviour in Panache Black.  The premium brand formerly known as Masquerade returns this season with a super hot collection including one of the most alluring D+ lingerie sets this side of Christmas.

If you’re looking for the ultimate wish list treat, look no further.  The Panache Black Aria is a sultry little number that’s boasts class and femininity with a healthy dash of sex appeal.


**I received the Panache Black Aria plunge bra, 30H (RRP £42), and the brazillian brief, 14 (RRP £20)**

The Aria collection features a moulded, plunge bra that comes in cup sizes up to an H.  With a soft touch microfibre fabric covering the cups and extending to the wings, the design has a modern matt finish.  Gold metal hardware add a luxe touch, and a contrasting caramel nude peeks out through an overlaid delicate lace insert creating an overall sensual, on-trend look.


Aria is a slim banded bra with a two way hook and eye fastener – great if you like your bands on the narrower side.  The straps are fully adjustable too.

The tactile soft nature of Aria makes this bra such a pleasure to wear.  The moulded cup provides enough coverage and thickness to avoid the use of regular padding, which means you get great natural uplift, no show through and fantastic shaping.

The wires are a touch high under the armpit but not overly so to spoil the fit.  Considering how plunge styles in general can often feel less supportive, the firm fit is impressive.

Aria is perfect: it lifts, shapes and helps create a gorgeous cleavage.


The bra’s co-ordinating brief is no shrinking violet and certain to make you feel insatiable!  A brazillian cut, these knickers are designed to make the most of your figure and just look incredible.

The low slung brief features a plain stretch microfibre front panel, trimmed either side with the matching black lace over nude trim.  Turn over and there’s a stunning deep lace see-through mesh back.  The lace bottom feels gorgeously soft and the detail just beautiful.  Wearing these knickers feel amazing – totally sexy – and worth wearing even for your eyes only.


I styled up the Panache Black Aria set with a pair of black Fiore Obsession ‘Celia’ hold ups in size 4/large (RRP £5.45), sent to me by Love Your Legs, that created a spicy little boudoir outfit.

The Celia hold ups are a basic straight leg with no foot shaping, but the design sets them apart from others.  The hold ups are more fashion led than your usual hold up or stocking, and feature a contemporary zig-zag design.


The Fiore Celia hold ups feature two silicone strips beneath the lace top panels, and this provides a good degree of hold.  The 30 denier knit is light to the touch and although they’re delicate they still feel substantial and rugged enough.

Featuring a fashion back seam that runs to the tip of the toe, they’re not fully seamed, but still have that glamorous vintage look.

Sadly, the top of the band doesn’t stay in position like you see on the packaging; the trim curls over too easily, especially at the back of my leg.  The modern styling makes the Celia hold ups look so good, I just wish they looked as perfect on my legs.

    I was looking forward to an Aria review and yours was great, as always! <3

    Would you say the style would work well for projected and narrow shapes?

    I have an Ardour and a Loren from Panache Black in 30F and 28FF respectively and they look great!

    You could do a separate blog on hosiery I think; your legs look great.
