    30D

    Didn't fit

    This bra fit very similarly to the Panache Scarlette bra 30D (http://bratabase.com/browse/panache/scarlett_4501/30D/).

    The material in the Tango 2 is silkier than the Scarlett. The band is slightly stretchier, but not really enough to make a difference between the two.

    The problem I had again was with the cups. I fit fine on the bottom of the cups, and the underwires were no problem. The top of the cup was slighly too baggy for me, but the top edge was flush against my body. It kind of looked like the top edge was pushing the top of my breasts down because I ended up with a really pointy shape. If the shoulder straps were more centred so the top of the cup was lifted, I think it would have fit fine.

    I would say this bra is probably for someone who is full on top.

  2. Boobs look pointy from the side.
    Bra is actually very comfortable to wear. I don't really like the flowers because they can show through clothing, but I find that any lace bra will even do the same thing. I find I am adjusting this bra a lot less than my Freya decos (which aren't always a good fit to begin with). I almost returned this bra because of the pointy shape, but under shirts I can't tell as much and I am very glad I kept it and wore it for the day. It feels great even if not very attractive to look at.
    Overall I am really impressed ... with how this bra is sitting after wearing it all day. I think I will get a couple more in different colours since it feels so good.

    UPDATE:
    This bra no longer fits and I don't intend on repurchasing this bra again. It did not give me the nicest shape, and since this purchase I have found many other bras online that I will try first. Also, I don't have a lot of luck with soft cup bras because I have asymmetry between my breasts. Padded bras are an easier fit right now until I figure out a cheap and non surgical way to handle that.

    I'm not sure why this was voted down, I think repurchasability is a big factor is determining if someone actually liked a bra. Updating a review to state that would be appreciated from my perspective.

    • If it doesn't fit anymore you can go and add your new measurements and then report how this bra doesn't fit for your new figure ;)

      Thanks! I have added my new measurements but in various site locations it still says this bra fits so I wanted to clarify. I understand that people will want to know that it *did* fit when I was a different size, but I was getting confused and wanted to show change somehow.
      Should I do anything else? I am new to this new measurements and new bras that fit info...
      Thanks again!!

  3. I really like this bra! The cups fit well and give a nice rounded shape. It's also pretty comfortable with minimal adjusting throughout the day.
    The wire is a little high in the center and on the sides since I am petite, and slightly scratchy overall. I really wish there was a smoother version of this bra or a seamless one with a similar shape. The band is looser than I was expecting from Panache (I could use a band smaller than 28 anyway) and the front fabric under the wire folds in/under, doesn't lay flat.
    Pros: Nice rounded shape, cups lay flat and smooth at the top of the chest
    cons: embroidery is raised above the cups, if you're petite it might poke you

    I love this bra! I much prefer it to the Freya Rio bra I own. The material is very nice and soft/silky and feels much better on my skin than the somewhat itchy mesh material. I also love the embroidered leaves because they make the bra look quite pretty. The vermillion red color is also very lovely.

    The straps are also thinner than the Freya Ro bra, which I prefer because I am very petite and I do not feel that a bulky bra suits me terribly well. They are also less prone to show.

    My two main problems with this bra were that I ... could comfortably fasten the bra on the tightest hook (not good!), but this is probably because my ribcage is small and would suit a 26 band. The band also seems somewhat less stretchy than Freya.

    My second problem is that even though the bra fits, the underwires at the center gore poke into my breast tissue. I am going to purchase the Tango Plunge bra to see if this will alleviate the problem.

    And yes, the wires are broader than those in the Freya band and yes they do go under one's armpits. This is not a problem for me because I haven't experienced any poking whatsoever.

    The shape that this bra gives me is quite nice because it really helps to emphasize my tiny waist and curves. My breasts get a pleasant round shape to them, which I appreciate. I also prefer the lower line the cups make. They don't go too high on me like my Freya Rio, they go to just the perfect level.

    I do get wrinkling where the strap meets the underwire, but this is because my breasts are fuller on the bottom than they are on the top.

    This is my favorite bra so far!

    Please be patient! I will be adding measurements for this bra soon!

    This one fits ok, but I hate the way it looks under clothes, so I'll return it.

    I'm used to molded cups and the material on this one is really thin. Not that it isn't made well, it is, I'm just used to more material there. I also didn't care for the shape I wound up with while wearing this bra. I felt really pointy, and it looked strange to me from the side. This is probably due to the natural shape of my breasts, but I just didn't care for it. Then I realized the material texture really shows through shirts (I mostly wear T-shirts and stretchy tops) and realized there was really nothing I could wear it with, so it didn't make sense to keep it.

    Just not my style, but I can see why lots of others really love it.

    I love the fabric and the support of this bra. I love the colors. I wish it was the best bra for me, ever, but I can't get it to fit me in any size I've tried. I can't seem to avoid "orange in a glass" with Tangos (even in a 30E!), which is a shame. If you have the breast shape for it, this is probably the best bra you'll ever wear. I can't figure out exacly what's wrong with it...something about the shape cuts into my tissue at the top of the cups, and leaves strange pointy creases at the tips of the cups. I would have thought my marshmallowey boobs could have conformed to the shape, but they just won't do it.

    I've had this bra forever - it's still in use because the band was so firm to start with - as are the straps. It's pretty full coverage for a balconette, in a very lovely way. The fabric, as with all the Tangos, is totally firm and supportive. The lift on this bra isn't awesome. It contains more than it lifts. I don't wear it often, but I like it a lot. The wires are really wide and high, though. Not optimal for narrow frames and those requiring shorter wires at the underarm. (I'm short and short waisted and the side wires are too high...)

    30E

    Didn't fit

    I bought the Panache Tango bra back in 2010 when I first learned about bra sizing and have used it during the past two years.

    This bra has always been comfortable and supportive, plus it comes in a great variety of colour. While it's not really original, girly or sexy, it is definitely a great tshirt bra if you have the right shape for it.

    The main problem with this bra is that it runs a bit small on the cup size and has a narrow structure. The fabric is thick and will not work with all breast shapes. I found that it often cut into my breast tissue ... or slipped down during the day because the weight of my breast was pushing it down (something that tends to happen less in bras that are the right shape for me).

    After debating whether the size was the problem or not for two years, I have decided that the biggest issue for me was probably the shape. While my breasts are not especially wide and are rather bottom-heavy, the top of the cup still cuts in my bigger breast tissue because it is too narrow for my breasts.

    In conclusion, I think this is a very good bra, it is still in pretty good shape after two years despite the fact that I machine-washed it. The fabric is very supportive and comfortable. Despite the details on it, it doesn't show much through the clothes and it surely is good looking if you have the right shape for it.

    However, the cup size is on the smaller end.

    I bought this size with the 30F to compare the two sizes and the band on this one is too small for me, but I found the band on the 30F slightly big. Even though I have space in the cup, it also cuts into the breast tissue so the cups are too small for me as well.

    Look wise, it's not too exciting, but a good basic if it fits you. I bought nude to see if I could wear it under my thinner white t-shirts and although the colour is good, the embroidery shows a bit. Not a lot, but I'd have to wear a camisole over it to feel more comfortable. I think it would be fine under looser fitting shirts.
