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.

Too small in the cups for me. There is not much difference in size between this one and the 30DD.

Why do I keep buying Tango II's when they don't fit exactly right? The Tango II would be the perfect bra for me if I could find a size that didn't give me a little "orange in a glass" in the tips of the cups. I have a Tango in a 28 band and the cups wrinkle, so I bought 30D, and the cups definitely cover better, but the band is too stretchy, and the cups still cut into my tissue. I don't feel like the 30D is nearly as supportive as the 28DD because of the difference in band size. I love unlined bras and they are few and far between in my size range. I love having Tango's happy colors to choose from, because wearing "nude" every day gets really boring. I'm usually too cheap to buy Panache's matching shorts, but I find decent color matches in other, cheaper brands. If I could just squeeze my boobs so they'd be a little thinner at the tips these cups would fit well.

Cups too small and a lot of fabric wrinkling... Maybe too projected for my shape

Not good for small banded/small cupped people.
Wire digs in on sides and underneath, band fits comfortably.

I thought this bra was beautiful... until I saw a picture of myself from the side!
During a recent heat wave, I became fed up with my usual t-shirt bras and I pulled the tags off the Tango II. It feels nice on hot days because it breathes much better than a t-shirt or contour bra. However, I am not thrilled with the shape... it gives a definite conical look that is not flattering on my small breasts. I have since learned that the Tango II isn't necessarily a "true balconette" shape, due to the way the straps connect to the upper cup section --- in ... a true balconette, apparently the straps should connect to the lower side cup section. This makes sense, because I get a much rounder and more flattering shape from my Freya Antoinette (3925), which does have the true balconette cut.
The support of this bra is wonderful, especially considering the apparent thinness of the material. I am really impressed with how it holds everything together, and it does so quite comfortably. The Tango II is also made very well, and I think it does deserve its reputation as a popular bra. The band is a little too stretchy, and I sometimes feel I should be wearing a 28 in this style -- as it is, I fasten this on the tightest hook with no problem.
Another thing to note is that while I think the embroidery on this bra is very pretty, it does tend to show through my top. It's not horrible but it's enough to make this bra one I will reach for only when it's really warm out.

This bra did not work for me at all, I did just barely fill the cups but it gave my breasts a strange conical shape. The band was very stretchy, even on the tightest hooks.

I tried this bra a couple of years ago after picking it up on sale.
While the bra did fit quite ok, there were 2 small problems that made me decide against repurchasing. I found the fabric to be quite itchy and irritating and it also gave me a somewhat pointy shape. Not so bad that I had rocket boobs but it wasn't quite the rounded shape that I prefer. Otherwise it's a nice bra.
