Panache Tangos work on a specific shape. That shape not being my shape. I was looking for a simple, unpadded plunge bra with little projection to wear under work blouses. My last Tango was 28GG and cut terribly into my cleavage, so I ordered up to a 28H.
The problems that affected me in the 28GG returned with a vengeance in the 28H. Starting with the gore, it is a bit wide for my close set boobs. It's like the bra does not want my boobs touching AT ALL (I like a little bit of touching, it's more comfortable). Would not be a problem if there was less fullness in the centre.
The only thing I like about this bra is that the band is firm. There's very little upwards shifting when I move about. Unfortunately, the shape it gives me is unforgivable and I'll need to sell this to someone who is a Tango fan.
I loved the lightweight feel of this bra: the fame is small, & the sides don't come up high. But it is simply not comfortable. At all. The wires come up too high under the arm and dig in- & I'm 5'9", so I can't imagine how petite women could even wear it at all. The shape of the underwire itself is extremely narrow; a V-shape rather than a broad U. So if your breasts are not wide as mine are, it might work better for you. The shape it gives under clothing is a little frumpy, due to the diagonal seam being much lower across the breast than most brands.
This was my first bra from Panache! I went for a 28 but I should have picked a 30. I don't wear it often, because it gives a conical shape to my breast, which I don't really like! But it was nice, at the time, to discover a bra cup that actually covered all my breast tissue!
It's the ubiquitous sexy plunge bra - but with better support than most because the fabric is so stable. I've had this bra for a long time (and others in the same style) and it does fill a niche, but it's not the most supportive or best fitting of my bras because there's not a lot of upper cup support and the straps and band are slim. It gives a nice shape and it's comfortable.
Panache are the closest thing I've found in Australia to a bra that fits, but a 32FF is too small in the cup, and the underwire in the 32G is more than half the band width, so it ends up digging into my armpits, and interfering with my lats if I reach forward. The two-hook closure seems like a waste of time in a G-cup bra, too.
I got this bra purely for an "at home" bra to add to my collection with my Cleo Kali. The wires are way too wide for my body but it's not awfully uncomfortable. What makes this bra uncomfortable is the straps in the front that rub under my arms. I seem to have this problem with a number of my bras in general. I feel like most companies other than Comexim think that women over a certain size are linebackers. I have to use an extender because the band is just a bit tight but over time with wear I can see this being a nice tight band. Pitty about the front spillage and the rubbing.
