Used to fit
For reference my breasts are pendulous, full on top, splayed, wide and short rooted, and high set.
I absolutely love the fit of this bra. Functionally, the support is even better than the Panache Tango which up until this point in time has been my most supportive bra. The good thing about this bra is that it manages to be a heavy lifter without giving me either an extremely east-west or forward projected look. It's kind of in between wide and projected, which seems to be the best balance for me personally. I prefer to have a balanced look to my figure, so I need a bra that gives me a good hourglass profile from the front without making me look flat from the side.
The material is sheer and breathable, which is perfect for work because I don't sweat through the bra to the point of being uncomfortable. The wires were a little creaky the first day I wore this, but it stopped after one light hand washing and a full day of wear. The embroidery does show under thin shirts, so keep that in mind if this sort of thing bothers you. Despite being so sheer, this bra keeps my nipples under control (since it's gotten colder I discovered my nipples were showing under my bras, so I had to improvise some nipple covers with cut up pantyliners in my bra.)
I'm not a fan of this shade of mint against my skintone, so I think I'll be dyeing it to a more suitable color. I think this color would be great for someone who likes to look tan because it makes my pasty skin look like I spent a day at the beach.
The straps on this bra are short enough so that I don't have to adjust them all the way. I actually have about an inch and a half left of space on the strap. For reference, I'm 5'2" with high set breasts, so this is a glorious feat from any bra.The wires don't run too high or too short, and they don't poke, rub, or otherwise inconvenience me. The band is snug without being bonecrushingly tight, and it doesn't seem to stretch out throughout the day. I'm currently wearing it on the second hooks right out of the package because I've been measuring 35 inches around lately after some weight loss.
In short, if you like the Tango and bras that fit like it but you desire a better appearance and more comfort, I'd strongly recommend this bra.
