I have no idea why I waited so long to try the Tango. Just last week, someone on facebook mentioned that Tango fit bigger than Jasmine for them. I'm on the verge of out growing my 32JJ Jasmine and even my 32JJ Floris is getting small. So I found this on clearance on Amazon, with prime shipping and free returns (have you used an amazon locker for returns yet? So sweet! I have a locker about a mile from my house!)
Yes. Yes this DOES fit bigger than the jasmine. It looks like a much better shape for my full-all-over omega boobs. ... I mean, there's some wrinkling, and some gapping at the top, but we big girls cant be so picky. If there's no quadding and good support and no pain, its a win!
Sorta tempted to buy the "Heather Ombre" which is a dusty purple, but I think I'll wait and see if my weight drops. After all, I have a 75K S rokoko coming from Ewa and I'm in negotiations to buy a (probably) never-worn 75K S Mojito, so I should be ok for a bit. Read more 92 more words
I purchased the Tango in a 32J in both Pale Jade (light green) and Tiger Lily (orange). To my surprise, the pale jade one seemed to fit perfectly, and the tiger lily was a little too big (wrinkling at the top of the cup). Currently, the tiger lily is a better fit for me. Since the pale jade was an older colorway, maybe the Tango has been redesigned recently? Back when I was a 32H, I owned the Tango in pale jade, blue/gold, wisteria, and forest, and all the colorways seems to fit me the same way back then. I'm hoping Panache brings back some of the old colors eventually, because orange is not exactly my color.
As with all the Panache bras I own in my current size (32J), I previously owned the Tango in a 32H, then outgrew it when I gained weight. The only color I was able to replace in a 32J was Pale Jade. I find it comfortable, and it's minimizing enough for me to be able to wear button down shirts. This particular bra seems to have the classic orange in a champagne glass problem on me. I also purchased this bra in the new color Tiger Lily, which fits me better.
An astonishingly bad fit. I ordered this from HerRoom, and I wouldn't say I had high hopes, but wow. The cup wrinkled, it wasn't projected enough, it wasn't narrow enough, it gave me bullet boobs, the gore cut in, the wires hurt, the fabric wasn't soft. Painful Panache is right! I'm glad that a lot of people like this bra, but it's not for me.
I do not like this bra, it is so uncomfortable. There isn't enough room in the bottom of the cups, making them pull, wrinkle, pucker. The top of the cup is wrinkly but the very top edge lays flat. Embroidery is nice. I'm dissappointed this didn't work out. There isn't enough bottom projection and it fits terribly and is super uncomfortable. Pass. Top edge of cup 6"
The Panache Tango was the first bra I tried in my recent bra-fitting journey, so I really wanted to this fit. Sadly, after trying the Tango II in sizes 28DD and 30D and the Tango II Plunge in 28E, I've come to the conclusion that this line is not for me. All the Tango bras are shaped with immediate projection and a very closed off top, which doesn't suit my wide and shallower shape at all. Every single size and style I've tried end up giving me the orange in a glass effect, and the stiff mesh fabric means the empty part of the cup ...sticks out awkwardly and can't be disguised.
The first Tango II I bought came from another user and was well-worn, so I had no idea that the fabric would be this stiff and scratchy when new. The other one I have seems to be an older model, and I was surprised that the Tango II fits differently. The band is far too big for me, and the cups are also too big and projected. I'm swimming in this bra, and it isn't comfortable enough to warrant any kind of tailoring. I also tried this in the sister size of 28DD and surprisingly it is way too small in the cups and gives me horrible oranges in a glass. Sadly, time to give up on my Tango dreams https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 137 more words
