The History of Panache
Panache bras are designed to meet ever changing lingerie needs and accommodate, flatter, and enhance confidence. The brand offers diverse designs catering to various needs, sizes, and style preferences. By breaking down these designs into different categories, Panache aims to ensure that women can easily find the styles that meet their needs.
Where are Panache bras made?
Established 1982 in the United Kingdom, Panache Lingerie began as a small, family-run business focused on buying and selling wholesale lingerie to retailers. By 1989, the company had launched its first in-house design – the 'Panache Superbra'.
Today, Panache operates from offices in Sheffield, New York, and China, distributing its lingerie products in 53 countries globally. The manufacturing process is performed exclusively in six factories across China, Vietnam, and Thailand. The company has nurtured enduring partnerships with these manufacturing facilities, spanning over two decades.
Panache combines Material and Quality
Always striving to achieve that perfect balance between comfort, functionality, and design, Panache uses countless quality materials and technical designs across its lingerie, activewear, and swimwear categories.
According to Panache's Ethical Trading Statement, all materials are obtained from suppliers who have achieved Oeko-Tex STANDARD 100. And for your peace of mind, all textiles used by Panache are tested and completely free of unkind or harmful chemicals.
