See measurements for 28GG here: http://bra.pe/RcX/.
I've gotten used to most Panache bras either being TTS or quite stretchy in the band. Before ordering these Masquerade styles there is only one other that I own and the band is firm on the final (last) hook. I found 28's available and thought I might fit one of them best. This is quite a stunning bra and I had high hopes.
The material is like most Masquerade satiny bras in that it is quite firm/stiff and not particularly stretchy (where the less expensive "youthful" Cleo line actually is). I have tried a good many of these shiny styles on and ... found they are not forgiving on the band size. Still, I had hope that if a 30-band were to give out too quickly then maybe the smaller "sister size" would be best with a bra extender until that day arrived. I *would have* ordered 30G and 30GG for comparison but found a 28GG and 28H from the same online store. As suspected both fit nicely although I felt more covered in the 28H and therefore comfortable.
Material quality is very supportive and the "Cinder" color is beautiful. If caught in a particular light it looks kind of like a smokey purple but it is in fact more of a warm brownish-grey with black center lace trim. The wires are just in the right spot and side wings as well (not too high). My only complaint was that I really did purchase it too small and would ideally exchange for a 30G but the store did not have so I reluctantly returned both sizes.
Measured immediately before wearing.
Purchased & Returned May 2012 from Breakout Bras.
